“Don’t Hate Me Because I am Beautiful.” (Forbes Article)

I remember well those words spoken in a Pantene shampoo commercial back in the 1980’s. The attractive woman with the fabulous hair looked right into the camera and made the plea “Don’t hate me because I am beautiful.” That phrase became front and center once again earlier this year when UK columnist Samantha Brick wrote

The “Man Cold”

This week my husband came down with a horrible sinus cold, which he then managed to pass on to me and my daughter.  Fabulous!  So this week all three of us are suffering from sinus colds, however, it is absolutely incredible to see the difference in how each of us manages to cope with it.  Ashley

Funniest Christmas Present Ever

For Christmas today my daughter Ashley made a home video to send to her brother Dalton who is serving a mission for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Mississippi and therefore he couldn’t be home with us this year.  She started making this video prior to her ACL surgery and she

Tis the Month Before Christmas

 Tis The Month Before Christmas Tis the month before Christmas, we’re all going nuts; With so much to do, there’s no ifs, ands or buts.

Thank Heaven For Little Girls!

As all of you who follow my blog know, today my daughter had surgery to repair her ACL.  We had to wake up at 4:30am to be to surgery by 6am.  And unfortunately we were up until 1:30am the night before hanging out with my husband’s parents who had been staying with us.  Side note,

“Judging a Person Does Not Define Who They Are, It Defines Who You Are.”

Judging other people – Everyone is guilty of it as some point or another.  Many times it happens in small subconscious ways where we find ourselves judging someone without even realizing it.   Many times judgments are made based on a person’s appearance, an outfit, a car they drive, the job they do, or the house

Baby It’s Cold Outside!

Snow mixed with wet wind = I’m FREEZING!  I have to say that I am not much of a snow girl only because I just can’t stand to be cold.  My husband and I have a constant battle over the temperature in our house – I want the temperature turned WAY up and my husband wants it turned way down…brrrrr…  Heat

Decide in Advance To Do the Right Thing (Forbes Article)
