Winter break is here and the kids are out of school.  With new gifts and a warm home, our kids have a tendency to want to hang out more inside than outside.  I have to admit that during the holidays, we see an increased amount of television watching and game playing, especially with both Frank […]...

I love the story, The Night Before Christmas, and read it to our family every Christmas Eve before we go to bed.  After all, that’s what my parents did when I was younger.  So when I heard that Verizon FiOS created an Instagram Storybook called “Twas the Night Before Stanley,” I had to check it out!

I love the holidays – filled with smiling faces, friendly attitudes, lights, presents and especially music!  I have to admit, I would love to start listening to holiday music before it’s even Halloween, but I try to wait until at least November 1st.  It’s not always easy, but I do it.  I love the way […]...

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 […]...

Over the summer, I have talked about AT&T and a new campaign they have called “It Can Wait.”  What can wait?  Texting can wait!  We’ve seen in television shows what can happen when someone’s texting (Quinn in an episode of Glee), but have we really seen what can happen in real life?  Let me introduce you […]...

I love watching “Glee” and if you were like me, you were heart broken when Quinn Fabray crashed her car on the way to Rachel Berry and Finn Hudsen’s impromptu wedding.  The car crash left her in a wheelchair for a period of time and the accident was completely avoidable.  If you remember, Quinn was […]...
