An ad for Cuff, wearable "smart jewelry" popped up on my Facebook feed yesterday.  This was such a targeted ad for me since I love technology and fashion so of course I had to do a little click over to see what this was about. The picture looked like it was similar to a FitBit but I was really intrigued once I clicked through. It's wearable … [Read more...]

This 50 Non-Candy Easter Basket Items post did well back in April so I thought I'd re-visit the concept for Halloween.  These days everyone seems to have some sort of restriction - gluten-free, allergies or whatever reason they may have for not eating candy.  And honestly, we don't have any restrictions but my boys get so much candy in their … [Read more...]

I hosted our monthly girls poker night at my house last week. It was a nice night and the last poker night of the summer and I wanted to make something fruity and fun for our evening.  After searching for a couple of different sangria recipes, I came up with this one. I started with only a couple of cans of ginger ale but added two more to make it … [Read more...]
