Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July!

Make sure you thank a veteran or soldier today for fighting to keep you free. Remember, it’s their blood, sweat and tears that are shed so that you can have any opinion you want in this country without fear of being harmed by your government. Be grateful and never forget.

We’re talking fifteen-year-old girl hormonal bad. She’s rolling her eyes at me! ME!! Her mother. the one that doesn’t act like my mother. I’m a […]

Happy 8th Birthday, Baby Girl!

Today is your 8th birthday and I couldn’t be prouder or more in awe of you. Mostly because I was just holding you in my arms the other day, I blinked and you are now eight-years-old. Where did the time go, little girl? How did you get so big, so fast? In the last year, […]

I Got Your Funny Right Here!: When Cartoons Go Bad

I Got Your Funny Right Here!: When Cartoons Go Bad

It’s been a bit since I did one of these, but I’ve been busy gathering ammo. Who else is going to take the time to steal images from other people’s Facebook pages scour the web for funny pictures fitting a particular theme? This takes skill, people! And time. Lots of time. Plus, I need to […]

In Like A Flaming Sequestered Lion And Out Like A…Oh Who The Hell Knows!

It’s March 1, 2013, which is my 42nd birthday. I was happy this year because no one in my Husband’s family had died in February, so no funeral on my day this year. WOOT! I thought this was going to be a good one. Then three things happened: First: Obama and Congress are locked in […]

Hello, It’s Cold

Hello, It’s Cold

And yes I do mean it’s cold here in SoCal. Really, truly, bitterly cold. If we were located a bit more north or east, it would be snowing. Or we’d have ice. So, no, it’s not always sunny and 75 degrees here in Southern California. Most of the time it’s hot as hell, but for […]

The Diva’s Letter To Santa

The Diva’s Letter To Santa

My girl, well she’s very imaginative. And very generous. She is also kind-hearted and believes that with just a little magic and a couple of wands, she can make all the bad people in the world turn nice and make all our dreams come true. I don’t know how I’m going to tell her those […]

I was recently given the opportunity to review an advanced copy of The Odd Life of Timothy Green (in stores December 4, 2012). We watched it on Thanksgiving night and we loved it. The Diva said her favorite part was when “he comes up out of the garden”. Personally, I liked the whole thing. It […]

Baked Bacon! Yes, I Said BAKED.

Baked Bacon! Yes, I Said BAKED.

It’s no secret that I LOVE bacon and think that it makes everything better — well, except that bacon flavored lube because that’s just plain disgusting — but I hate cooking it. The grease, getting hit by hot grease, always having to watch it so it doesn’t burn…you get the picture. Plus, I only have […]

#TBCcrafters Week 1: How To Make A Holiday Ribbon Barrette Or Pin

#TBCcrafters Week 1: How To Make A Holiday Ribbon Barrette Or Pin

I always come up with FABULOUS ideas for clothing, accessories or home decor. And then I go on an exhaustive search to stores and internet sites only to find that what was in my head does not exist. Or it does exist, but is extremely cost-prohibitive. Sometimes these thoughts are inspired by a color, ribbon […]
