Childhood Memories Friday: Nixon Resigns

It’s election season. Most people seem to fall into one of two groups: those who enjoy all things election-related, and those who hate them or don’t pay attention to them. I’m definitely in the former group; always have been. Johnson was President when I was born, but Nixon is the first President I really remember. […]

Sister Wives Recipes: Christine’s Meatloaf

So a while back I told you about my experience trying Sister Wives’ Meri’s Streusel Cake. Another day, another Sister Wife. Today, let’s try Christine’s Meatloaf. I like Christine. She and Janelle probably tie as my “favorite wife” on the show. Christine is always positive and never comes across as mean to the other wives […]

Say & Pray Devotions: Review

Thanks to FlyBy for a review copy of this book, and for one to give away. When my oldest daughter was just a toddler, I made a book for her (or maybe it was my sister? Can’t remember). It featured logos from stores we visited: Meijer. Chick-fil-A. Arby’s. She loved “reading” the book. Could she […]

I always bought the reduced-fat versions, trying to be healthier. Over the years though, the price of these soups went up and up. When cream soup went […]

Some of the things can be easily noticed while others have to be inspected thoroughly. Occasionally, there are parts of your home that are constantly getting damaged […]

Kit Kat & Lucy: Review

As an animal lover, I was intrigued by the premise of Kit Kat & Lucy: The Country Cats Who Changed a City Girl’s World: “After years of vibrant city life in San Francisco, Lonnie Hull DuPont reluctantly trades her three-room apartment on Telegraph Hill for a farmhouse in Michigan. She immediately misses the rhythm and […]

Menu Plan Monday 10/10/16

Hi everyone and welcome to another menu plan Monday! My weekend involved my sister visiting, and a full Saturday at a band festival our school hosted. I worked in the concession stand and then watched bands for a few hours, ending up with daughter #3’s. There she is, if you see the free lines of […]
