Easy Breezy Summer Meal

One of the most stressful decisions my husband and I have to make daily is what the heck we are going to eat for dinner. Neither of us is very creative in the kitchen. We also both hate to clean up after dinner. Who doesn't? And it seems like we are never in the mood for the same thing. AGH! It’s so frustrating. I could go on and on, but I'll spare you the drama. One ...

Zzzzzzz…..

I’ve always believed the most important part of your day is the sleep you got the night before. Sleep determines everything. I know because I am blessed with the gift of good sleep. I go hard every day until the time comes that I can’t go any longer.

I don’t think I really ever paid attention to the stories they were covering; I just remember they were adorable and it was a way of life. I guess I have always been obsessed with seeing the weather forecast, and I think since the beginning of TV, it’s been showcased at 25 ...

Year Round Tan

It’s summer summer summertime! And wow, what a hot and sticky summer it’s been. The good news is that if you covet a bronzed body, this summer has provided the perfect weather for tanning by the pool or lake. I am a big believer that everyone looks better tan and that if you only have one hour to devote to your vanity, you can get more bang for your buck at the pool than in ...
