Final NaBloPoMo Post!

It is the last day of the NaBloPoMo 2014 and I have done it! This is the final NaBloPoMo post! I was away this weekend and had yesterday’s post done the night before thinking that tonight I’d have enough energy to write this celebratory post when I got home. I was sooooo wrong! I am exhausted and just want to …

10 Things I Learned From NaBloPoMo

I know I am a day early with this post. NaBloPoMo isn’t over for another day–but I kind of have other stuff to do this weekend so I am highlighting the things I learned from NaBloPoMo a bit sooner. I hope you don’t mind! I had never done a writing challenge before. If you saw me posting at the beginning of November, …

Fantasy Wardrobe Friday: Black Friday Shopping Outfit

If you’re deciding to brave the stores for some Black Friday shopping, you’ll probably have two things in mind: warmth and comfort. If you live in a cold climate, it is no fun freezing in between stores or in lines. Granted, this outfit may not quite be warm enough for sub-zero temps, but I’ll just pretend for this scenario that …

Where My Blog Will Be In The Future

I wasn’t sure what to blog about today. I decided not to do a “Things I’m Thankful For” post because, well, I’m thankful for a lot and being the non-traditionalist I am at times I didn’t want to do what many others were doing. Besides, it’s not a traditional type of day in my home. Instead of turkey and mom’s party …

Happy Thanksgiving! Don’t Let Your Food Touch!

Rather than make the obligatory “Things I Am Thankful For” post (which might actually come tomorrow…haven’t decided), I thought I would post something simple and funny. Can you relate to the above graphic? I hate it when my foods touch. It is a small peeve of mine and I don’t really like seeing it on other’s plates either. But, to each …

A World of Hurt: Rage and Riots

The world is a huge place with millions of residents from every walk of life. It is as diverse as it is populated. I know it will never be possible for everyone on the planet to live in perfect harmony and peace with one another; there are simply too many conflicts. But I will never understand how one judgement can send …

Black Friday Deals & Cash Back with Ebates

Holiday shopping time is upon us this week! I know everyone is surfing the ads for the big Black Friday Deals. Let’s not forget Cyber Monday either, which I prefer. Who doesn’t love being able to shop from the comfort of their own home? There are a lot of online deals on Black Friday as well, so if you don’t …

Don’t Let the Uncontrollable Control You

 “You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.” -Maya Angelou In Life, there is much we cannot control. We must always try to find the strength within ourselves to not let what happens destroy us. We must always try to learn and grow from our circumstances in …

Honey Baked Salmon Recipe for One

When I make food I always end up making way too much, even when I do cut the recipe in half. A easy meal to portion out is salmon. You can buy a large filet at the grocery store, take it home, and cut it into portions for freezing. That is what I ended up doing for this Honey Baked …

Fantasy Wardrobe Friday: Ode to Cher

Today I found out the singing legend, Cher, cancelled the rest of her tour due to needing more recovery time after her illness. My mom and I had tickets to a concert date n October, and then it was postponed, much to our disappointment. The date had been pushed back to January. It wasn’t a big deal. It’s just that …
