Adventures in Crocheting – Part II

Yesterday, I posted that I was going to give crocheting a try. My great-grandma and my grandma both crocheted. I wish I would have asked them to teach me when I was younger and they were still alive. Ah! The foolishness of youth! So, the next best thing in this modern era is watching YouTube Read More

Adventures in Crocheting

So, I bought a book. It’s supposed to teach this newbie how to crochet. We will have a new grandson in June. Let’s see if this Grammy can make a blanket for him before he’s born! Here’s to trying something new in 2018!

Moving – it’s always an adventure

Our house has finally closed and our next adventure in real estate has begun. We are now looking for our next home. For this next phase, we have a real estate agent who is a rock star in every sense of the word. She has been exceedingly responsive through both text messaging and e-mails. That Read More

Always the right time to wear Stevie

In December, my husband and I went to see Stevie Nicks in concert. I’ve always been a fan of Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac. While it’s still on my bucket list to go see Fleetwood Mac in concert, I can cross off that list of being able to see Stevie. I’m not a huge fan Read More

Navigating a real estate transaction

This post is going to be kind of boring for anyone who wants to read about beauty, fashion, or subscription boxes. It is a tip though and speaks to the importance of knowing who your real estate agent, reading your contract and not being afraid on insisting that they represent you well. We listed our Read More

Editor’s Box

I have heard a lot about the FabFitFun subscription box. As I have mentioned in previous posts, I currently subscribe to Ipsy and Stitch Fix. I decided to give FabFitFun a try after reading a number of reviews and seeing the quality of items that come in each box. FabFitFun comes out four times a year. The Read More

Cold shoulders

I remember about six months ago when someone I work with had a really cute top on that had cut outs around the shoulders. I think I’ve shared before that I am somewhat self-conscious about baring my arms as I think they look too big. For me, cold shoulder tops are good option for someone Read More

Planner Style

A year ago, I stumbled upon a little known world of planner people – specifically, women who buy planners and then decorate them with all kind of doo-dads and what-nots. I think most of us when we buy a planner, we think to ourselves that we are buying it in order to get more organized Read More

Larger than life

A few days ago, I learned that a friend and colleague had suffered a massive heart attack. There was hope that he would pull through, but four days after his heart attack, he passed away. He was 50. His death was shocking to me because he seemed larger than life. He lived his life fighting Read More

Another black dress

I will admit that for me it has been a personal challenge to post pictures of myself on this blog. I will never claim to be any type of fashionista. I do like to dress nicely for work and try to look professional. For a while, I was kind of in this mode of picking Read More
