I must say that I was pleasantly surprised with this past week’s hike.  Arleena chose for us to hike the Stenner Creek Trail; I think mostly due to being one of the closer and shorter trails on our list. In the foothills of the Santa Lucia Mountains near Cal Poly, the Stenner Creek Trail is […]...

Since Frank popped the big question, we’ve been watching quite a few wedding shows together.  Some of our favorites are “My Fair Wedding,” “Say Yes to the Dress,” “Randy to the Rescue,” “Four Weddings,” “Bridezillas,” (just for kicks) and a few others here and there.  Even though I had been married befor...

I love to bake!  I could bake cupcakes, cakes, and brownies all day long!  Ok, maybe that’s a slight exaggeration, but I do really love to bake.  Cooking on the other hand.  Well, let’s just say that I let Frank cook more often than naught.  It’s not that I don’t like to cook, because I […]...

Most of my life, I’ve had curly hair.  When I was younger, nobody told me that you shouldn’t just brush curly hair.  Yeah – that’s what I did and a lot of the time, it looked like a frizzy mess.  It was in high school that a friend introduced me to hair mousse and gel. […]...

It’s the holidays and often times we find ourselves thinking of everyone but ourselves.  I don’t know about you, but when it comes to what everyone else wants, I have no problem rambling off a long list of ideas.  However, when it comes down to what I want to Christmas, I find myself pausing with […]...

When I was a little girl, I would constantly hear the nickname, “Skinny Minny.”  Well, three beautiful boys and 34 years later, I find that I don’t really fit that same nickname.  Life has caught up with me.  I have hips, love handles and have even become somewhat insecure about certain “fatty” areas of my […]...

Christmas is coming up and we have a lot of holiday shopping still left to do.  One of my favorite gifts to give and receive, other than jewelry, is perfume.  What’s even better than perfume is a box set with perfume and lotion in it.  Frank and I headed to Walmart and found an awesome […]...

Growing up, I was the oldest of 4 girls in our house.  How ironic was it that I became a mother to 3 boys (no girls in the mix)?  It wasn’t until I met Frank that I became a stepmom (for all intents and purposes) to his 2 girls and 1 son.  As a young […]...

Do you have NCAA fans in your home?  I love hosting get-togethers (or even going to the local sports bar/restaurant) and watching my family and friends interact about their Game Day Rivalries.  It is pretty intense at times, but funny altogether!  You’ll see them getting excited and hollering for their team, but when all is […]...

 Ok, don’t hate me, but it wasn’t until this past weekend that it started getting chilly here on the Central Coast of California.  I mostly grew up in South Carolina where they have recognizable seasons, and while I listen to the news and hear about all the cold weather my nostrils are filled with the […]...
