Allergy season has arrived. The best place to start preventing allergies is at home. Here are some tips for decreasing allergens (such as dust-mites and mold) in your home. The effectiveness of these steps will vary due to what type of allergy you or your family members have.

I know you are taking time out of your incredibly intense existence to read this. I know as you look at the page, you aren't able to pensively nibble at the end of your pen as you contemplate the next brilliant phrase to jot down. I know your air of mystery and sexy aloofness must be put on pause, and that the corner couch of the Starbucks will be wasted on you for these few moments, but I have an important message: Get over yourself.
Yes, that's right. Life is… Continue

I think of myself as a pretty creative person, decent at crafting and creating. Apparently my crafting niche does not extend to the making of gingerbread houses however. First, I made the icing way too thin, so it took me 3 days and lots of strategic propping to get the house to stand up. I decided not to even attempt to prop up the chimney, so the kids and I put it aside ate it. Then, I made the decorating icing too thin so most of our candy decorations were… Continue

Ok guys, I've been really nervous to put this up here because it's pretty rough and just starting out. I think it has potential though, so I'm going to brave it and you'll hopefully give me some feedback to help make it better. I've read and been told that thinking outside the box (or outside the house as the case may be) is better when it comes to a gingerbread competition so I attempted to branch out a bit (no pun intended) and try something a little different. I hunted around the internet… Continue

It was that time again....well-check time at the doctor's office. It is hard to believe that little Huddie is six months old! Everything checked out fine
of course we knew he was perfect.
We have a healthy, happy, and absolutely adorable six month old bouncing baby boy.
Just being content with bouncing, unfortunately, is starting to be a thing of the past though. Yep, my days of sitting on the floor beside the little guy watching him chew on his toys

Do you ever feel, that as the centrifugal force of the house, that mommy’s mood sets the tone for the the whole family? This Blog post came to me a couple of weeks ago, when my girlfriend said, “Can you Blog
about how when we are not good, the rest of our family never feels good?
And how we can pull ourselves out of these slumps?”
So really, what happens if mom’s not happy?…

Once upon a time, there was a little girl named, Bunny. Her parents moved her to the country, without a thought to asking her if she wanted to go, and made her live in a house that had no neighbors to play with, no paved streets to ride her bike on Continue
and that had an army of bugs always on the ready to attack. When she moved to the country, she was
afraid of dogs and horse, but her parents felt the need to fill the house, yard
and pasture with a lot of these…

When I was growing up, my Dad had a rule in our house, when you move away after college; you have to live outside a 500-mile radius of home. OK…don’t ask, but I will say
that when I eventually did move away from home, I did manage to move just
outside the 500-mile radius. The
funny thing was, as soon as I did, Daddy asked me when I was going to move
home. So much for house rules.

Diabetes is a killer. My 15 year old son was diagnosed with it when he was 11. It's been a tough almost five years, but things are looking up. I met Brenda Novak, a NY Times bestselling author, at a local writers meeting. Her son has the disease, too. Brenda is a dynamo. She took a proactive approach and started her Online Auction a few years ago. Since then, it's raised more than $700,000 for diabetes research!!
I host a page on the auction site, and this week Brenda is… Continue

You know how on Oprah when she’s interviewing someone who just dropped 150 pounds, she’ll ask, “What was your ah-hah moment, the moment you decided to take action?” Like Jeopardy, I shout out the answer before the contestant: “What is a photograph!”
Sure enough, The Photograph taken of her at a party, wearing stripes that go the wrong way, and spandex stretch pants that accentuate the plate of food on her lap, is plastered on a giant screen and the audience gasps and then applauds.… Continue

We didn’t know our garage was being used as a crack house until this weekend when we cleaned it out. Judging by how long we’ve had some of the lawn products where we discovered the evidence, this appears to be a two-year operation.
We wouldn’t have suspected a thing if Skye hadn’t purchased a...[Please Continue Reading]… Continue

Look, it's no secret, I like getting stuff -- says so, right on my review blog -- but, what I especially like about blogging is finding out about stuff (whatever it is, I need, at the moment) connecting with others (like me) and then being able to share all the good stuff...with you guys ...FAST!
Yeah, sometimes I get invited to really cool events (seriously, even my real life friends were more than a little surprised to see pictures of me...in Hollywood) but, I've been doing this… Continue
