F-f-f-f-freezing!!!

October 23, 2010

Wow. Last night I was so NOT a happy soccer mom. My daughter had a game at 6pm and it was COLD! The wind was whipping across the fields, and even though I had on boots, thick socks, jeans, two long sleeved shirts, a fleece jacket, a hat, two hoods, gloves, and TWO blankets….I was [...]

If you build it, they will come

October 23, 2010

When I started work full time two years ago, I was shocked to see that my employer did not have a website. He has a small dental practice, and always says that any practice depends on new patients on a regular basis to stay competitive. The majority of our new patients come from referrals, but [...]

“active” doesn’t even begin!

October 5, 2010

I think my blog title says it all about my family. We are all active to the max, to the point where it is kinda kicking my butt. I’m seeing a trend where my weekends are disapearing at an alarming rate. Sunday night will roll around and I’ve forgotten to go food shopping, wash my [...]

Our family tries to go away for a long weekend in the winter for a ski trip (family meaning cousins, grandparents, ect.) and this year we are looking into a nice weeklong summer vacation. It has to meet 3 criteria. First, it [...]

Active Recipe: Fall Veggie Stew

September 27, 2010

I threw together a quick stew yesterday that turned out pretty yummy. Please keep in mind that I am a “dash of this and pinch of that” kind of cook, so actual measurements aren’t really my thing. That probably explains the poor baking skills. Ingrediants: couple of carrots, peeled and sliced couple of cloves of [...]

Dang coupons

September 26, 2010

I keep getting $10 off coupons in the mail, which of course I’m going to use. I swear I will only go in and buy my $10 worth of free stuff, plus a touch for taxes, but I always get sucked into the abyss. My main problem is the kids section. I head straight to [...]

Helllloooo Monday.

September 20, 2010

What a weekend! My “baby” turned 4 this Saturday, and I can’t remember a weekend where we had so much planned. It began Friday, I had a laundry list of things to accomplish, and between surprise visits from family and friends, to ridonkulous traffic, I barely got anything done. My husband needed to be picked [...]

Save $ in little bits

September 5, 2010

Here’s a tip for you. If you haven’t asked your auto/home/life insurance company to review your policies, you could be paying way more than you really need to for the same product. For instance, I asked my car insurance carrier to review our policies, and see if they can save us any money. Since we [...]

MMM….peaches.

August 28, 2010

Today we took the two youngest to a not nearby farm to go peach picking. Tougas Farm is about 40 minutes from our house, but we love it so much that it is worth the ride. Besides picking delicious plump peaches, we also caved and bought a bag for apple picking as well. As anyone [...]

For all you folks doing back to school shopping, you know how tough it can be to keep track of which kid needs which folder, color pens, highlighters ect. I used to separate everything in to bags, but then you have to pull everything out to make sure you didn’t forget something important. I have [...]
