Seriously, it’s not that big of a deal.  Trust me,  it’s no more than a tease.  Calm down people, it’s just a trailer. Yes, the trilogy was a huge phenomena.  In fact, it was the most exciting “3-Peat” to hit suburbia in years.  And yes, Fifty Shades of Grey, Darker and Freed made housewives everywhere equally … Continued

The Mile High Club

The Mile High Club is not what it used to be.  Not. At. All.   When there’s no other choice but to escort your hyper-active, six-year old, lunatic son to the lavatory about a dozen times during a two hour flight, it sure does gives new meaning to being a member of The Mile High … Continued

What Luck! Everything At DOLLAR TREE Really Is Only A Buck!

Extra! Extra!  Read All About It… I’m sending a huge, unpolished THANK YOU to Laurie from Maine Camp Experience for tracking me down after reading my Camp Blog Part ONE: 5 Things I’ve Been Doing Instead Of Packing The Trunks.
