Great Deal on Hair Feathers

If you have a daughter over 5 I can almost guarantee you’ve seen or at least heard of these hair feathers.  They are really cute, semi permanent – in that they last through washing and styling your hair (for about a month to 6 weeks).  Jaeda BEGGED for one forever and we finally got it.…More of this…

Entitlement Series: Part 1 ~ What Are You Entitled To At Work?

Entitlement Series: Part 1 ~ What Are You Entitled To At Work?

Work:  Is your boss treating you unfairly? There are some people that spend their whole lives lamenting how unfairly they are treated.  That attitude peeves me because I feel you should either do something about it or move on.  But it does beg the question of what you are entitled to expect from your boss.…More of this…

Empty the Junk from the Trunk

Empty the Junk from the Trunk

Summer kicked my butt this week.  Sounds backwards right?  It’s summer so I should be more active, later hours to get outside and play, etc.  But nope, I was knocked flat by a summer cold that is lingering and caused dizziness, headaches and a sore throat for the past week.  Plus it’s been horribly hot…More of this…

Alert: An HONEST Resignation Letter has been Sighted!

As many of you know I’ve been transitioning between jobs the past few months.  While doing so, I have written a few posts about losing your job, being burnt out, and this week’s very controversial one:   It is YOUR fault you were laid off. In response to this latest post a fellow blogger shared the…More of this…

Should I have Lasik Done?

I have two friends that have had Lasik done with fabulous results.  My most recent friend now has 20/15 vision!  What I wouldn’t give for that as I sit here squinting at my computer screen because I can’t remember where I left my glasses.  And, to be honest, am too lazy to get up and…More of this…

It is YOUR Fault You Were Laid Off

It is YOUR Fault You Were Laid Off

Uh Uh.  No way.  Hell no.  It wasn’t my fault, it was the economy, or my boss, or the workload, or ____________ (fill in the blank). Did any of those things run through your head?  If so, here’s a reality check.   It was your fault.  You could have taken steps to reduce your odds of being…More of this…

Born to be a Dragon

Born to be a Dragon

My friend, Eisley Jacobs, just published her first book and it’s FABULOUS!  And I’m not saying that just because she’s a friend. She had me at the title – Born to be a Dragon.  I love anything with dragons…  PLUS she is giving away a Nook!  And some other great prizes including copies of the book…More of this…

Are You Entitled To More?

Are You Entitled To More?

My daughter has this incredibly frustrating unfortunate  behavior lately.  I can only describe it as an attitude of entitlement.  She isn’t appreciating what she has or what we are doing for her, instead she is questioning what are we going to do for her next.   Some examples: Friends: While we were driving home after…More of this…

Getting Creative – CUTE Project Idea!

Getting Creative – CUTE Project Idea!

Every once in a blue moon I do something that pleases me so much I get giddy.  Recently, I had that experience making letters for my kids’ rooms. I just love the way this turned out!
