I admit I am a little late to the game. I had heard of Marie Kondo (KonMari) and her books a few years ago, but I was not on the journey to conquer clutter. I go on the journey when Brad is yelling that our house is going to implode or I run out of closet/draw space. Y...

 Being under the weather was the perfect foil for me to lay in jammies, drink, and watch Netflix/Amazon over the holidays, Being a couch potato in Colorado is unheard of. All these healthy and active Colorado people can make your life stressful. No wonder I drink - plu...

Holidays are done and so am I.

I love Christmas a whole lot, but I was sick most of the holiday so between being sick, parties, me wearing other people's home decor on my head and work there was no blog. No worries because I am back to catch you up ....

 It is always an adventure when I do an activity with my bestie Robin and a trip to the Dior exhibit at the Denver Art Museum (DAM) is no exception.

I feverishly started making a plan. Since Robin was driving, I agreed to pay for parking and pick up her cocktail ta...

While I was watching today thru my tears, I was so stressed thinking the Pallbearers were going to drop the casket...

*  Be a fleece toucher ... sometimes I dare to put his fleece back in his closet and then he cannot find it. I know the horror

*Touc...

I need all of you to know that I love my children more than anything else on earth, besides Brad. I want my children to come home and stay with us all the time especially during the holidays; even though they only live 17 miles from us. It makes me feel good to have th...

All I want for Christmas is a wife. 

I love Brad and he is my best friend. I am not saying I need a wife, but I sure would like a wife just like I do not need a pair on Manolo Blahnik, but it sure would be nice to have a pair.

I am fortunate Brad grocery shops and makes...

I had my man back all to myself this weekend. Brad is a very romantic guy. I remember when we were first married living in New Jersey, he would bring a picnic lunch to my work so we could eat underneath a tree. The years have come and gone and Brad is still romantic as...

Who says I am old? I will tell you who says I am old ... my body. My body is like a bad boyfriend and I should have seen the signs he wanted to break up with me after my 20's.

You turn 30 and you notice a little bit of stiffness after driving a couple of hours or m...
