I was in the mood to do a little crafting over the weekend but I was so not in the mood to spend money at the craft store. I have been embracing minimalism and simplicity and the last thing I want to do is bring more stuff into my house. And you know no one EVER purchases the exact amount of craft supplies. I … Continue reading Easter jars are easy, cute and can save you money on plumbing costs.
I love caramel corn. Caramel is awesome. Popcorn is awesome. Combine the two and you get awesomer. Is that a thing? I don’t know. It should be. But not everyone has enjoyed the awesomer things in life. I did not realize until recently that my niece Meg, and a lot of people who have nut allergies, never really get to experience caramel corn.

Heart healthy? No. Heartfelt? Always.
Hey! Yeah, been a while. I have been busy completely overhauling my life. I have done it at least three times since October. Seriously, it is exhausting. But we can catch up later. For now, let’s talk money. I have a feeling you will agree with me that there is one true constant in my life. And that constant is my inconsistency in all endeavors.

No crafty or foodie post today. I am in Georgetown dog sitting for my friends Craig and Jack. They are vacationing in Zanzibar. Yes, Zanzibar is a real place and not some mythical land like Xanadu. I went to Indianapolis a few weeks ago. Practically the same thing. Miss Maggie is the lovely lady I am watching. Maggie is probably Sadie’s oldest friend. She is a Wheaton Terrier with … Continue reading Indulging my inner lookie-lou
