Family Movie Night: The Little Mermaid

Ladies and Gents, this is the easiest family movie night we’ve ever done. It is the perfect little bit of every day magic to push into your busy schedule without needing too much time and effort. Disney’s The Little Mermaid was a staple while I was growing up. My little sister loved Ariel and actually […]

Christmas Declutter-Phase 2

Having the five of us down with the crud last week kind of put me off my Christmas Decluttering schedule.  I’d hoped to have phase 2 done for you last week, but, we had pink eye, wet coughs and runny noses and no one seemed to have the energy to do much extra.  So, I’m […]

Crazy weather and the Menu Plan

A week ago, it did this… And the thing about it that was most amazing was that, for a first snow, it actually stuck and we had some amount of snow on the ground for three days.  I won’t tell you I was disappointed.  My theory is, if it’s all going to be brown, and […]

Menu Plan

We all have the crud.  The crud is my term for a low level sickness that, while not preventing you from doing anything you need to do, generally makes you feel like crap the entire time you’re attempting to do it.  With five of us, it runs through the house like a tipped over domino […]

Family Movie Night: Beauty and the Beast

We are at just about the 100 day mark before our vacation.  Since our last trip to Disneyworld, the Fantasy Land expansion has been finished and MY favorite Princess has taken the stage.  Yes, folk, when I take  the “Which Disney Princess are You?” quzzies, I get Belle.  Released in 1991 Disney’s Beauty and the […]

Pre-Christmas Declutter-Phase 1

Somewhere, someone is screaming that it’s just barely November and I can’t I just celebrate one holiday at a time! No. But, beyond that, as we move into winter and Christmas, I find I need my house to feel like a warm, pretty nest and I just can’t make that happen if our cabinets and […]

Don’t Hate-AND the menu plan

The Halloween decorations came down this weekend.  I want to put the Christmas decorations up, but I’ll refrain for a little bit.  People seem to get annoyed that once Halloween is over, Christmas begins in earnest.  I want to assure you that, despite being in a Christmas state of mind, I haven’t forgotten Thanksgiving.  Not […]

Things I NEVER (or almost never) do in the kitchen

Over the years, I can say that I’ve actually grown into being a good cook. People who have had my cooking can vouch that the things turned out by my kitchen are now pretty consistently good. This was not always the case and Big Daddy and I still remember the ill-fated cheeseburger loaf. Look, in […]
