Trick or Treat for UNICEF

Trick or Treat for UNICEF

Instead of trick or treating for candy this year, why not consider collecting donations for a charitable cause? There are still people out there who give change for Halloween so it isn’t too far-fetched. Trick or Treat for UNICEF is a 60 year-old program that gives kids the chance to help others during Halloween. TheContinue Reading

Holiday Craft: Greeting Card Branch Holder

Holiday Craft: Greeting Card Branch Holder

The amount of cards we receive each holiday season vary, but when we do, I always like to display them in a fun way. Sometimes I’ll arrange them on the fridge along with some festive window clings, and sometimes I’ll clip them to a pretty ribbon on the wall. This year, I decided to getContinue Reading

Did you know that at any given time, there’s up to $10 billion worth of coins out of circulation in the U.S.? Do you hoard coins? Just imagine how much of that stored money could be used on a family treat, activity, or vacation? A few months ago, we took the coins from our ittyContinue Reading

How to Decorate a Pumpkin with Duck Tape – Leopard Style!

How to Decorate a Pumpkin with Duck Tape – Leopard Style!

I feel so out of the loop… I have never used decorative Duck Tape. If I remember correctly, the last thing I duct taped was a moving box… years ago.

1st Days of “Exploratory” Pre-K

1st Days of “Exploratory” Pre-K

Greg and I have gone back and forth on the decision to send Jayden to Pre-K. Greg’s reasoning for sending Jayden to Pre-K? Prepare him for Kindergarten and get him socializing with other kids. Ok, I agreed with that, but felt he didn’t need full on Pre-K when he pretty much gets Pre-K at home.Continue Reading

Chicago Event: Gigi Hill LIVE Event For Womenpreneurs (October 16, 2012)

I’ve heard of Gigi Hill Bags and how gorgeous and lovely they are, but I had no idea that they were a flourishing direct sales company providing income opportunities and financial independence to women around the world. Just by looking at their product line, I imagine that the products probably sell themselves. I mean whoContinue Reading

It just isn’t Halloween in our household until I’ve baked up something festive. As much as I long to take on a challenge, I like to play it safe with decorating cupcakes. I recently tried Wilton’s Halloween candy kit and I couldn’t get any decent candies with the right detailing. I managed to burn someContinue Reading

Whole Grain Pumpkin Muffins

Muffins are a treat that we really enjoy during the Autumn season. Pureed pumpkin is currently everything and is simply divine in just about every hot beverage and baked good.
