The President of My Fan Club

The President of My Fan Club

Pink and Glitter Christmas


The president of my fan club lives at my house.

Actually, I think she is the president, vice president, secretary and treasurer all rolled into one.

Her days are full of responsibility.

She’s a fashionista, an artist, a cheerleader and could give advertising executive, Donny Deutsch a run for his money.

And she never misses a post.Continue reading

Holiday Recipe Linky Party


I am so thankful you are here.

Really.

I was a little worried that no one would show up.

I was worried that I would be sitting here with the Cheetos and the cheese ball and the fruit and cheese tray…..listening to the Chipmunk Christmas CD.

I mean….I don’t mind a little “Right Down Santa Claus Lane” with Alvin and Simon and Theodore…..

…..but it’s so much better with you here.  :)

 

One of my 2012 recipes that I would totally link at a holiday recipe link party.

Family Room Christmas Chalkboard


Somewhere between the Christmas decorating and the wreath making and popping popcorn….

…..my son turned thirteen.

A teenager.

Yikes.

The transformation was almost instantaneous.   He  just started sauntering around the house……nodding in response to most questions and reducing his vocabulary to words like “cool” and “great” and “thanks.”

And flipping his hair.

He is all about that hair.

It’s his crowning glory.Continue reading

If Christmas shopping were like running a marathon….I would still be on mile 1.

Maybe even the first 1/4 mile.

Or really…..maybe I’d be over by the bananas and yogurt and water…..

….just waiting for the race to start.Continue reading
