When Birds Attack

I’m so terrified of birds! My son and I went to lunch and the people behind us started feeding them. I about sh*t my pants. No, seriously. It was a close one. […read more]


20 Minute Spa Gift

This project is completely DIY and very inexpensive. It took around 20 minutes to put together.

Throw a bunch of these spa-like items in a basket or a bag with some accessories that make it look expensive and it’s a great hostess gift or quick go-to gift for an unexpected party or even bridal shower. […read more]


I’m in a Funk

This is a total Debbie Downer post but because we say we are “real,” we need to live up to it. We have a hard time¬† believing someone when everything they do, say and express seems perfect or all put together. I guaran-freaking-tee that we are both a hot mess. The reason for this site is that we know how to pull it together in any situation or know someone who can help us do it. This is me, uncensored and looking for people who “get” me. […read more]

Ever wonder how to make the “heart” symbol on Facebook or how people can create symbols to tell a story? We’ve wondered that, too. Don’t pretend like you don’t want to know…just a little bit at least. Well, here’s how […read more]

Mel-featured-imageJust a Fart in the Wind

Mel just moved from the west coast to the east coast. She left a TON of friends. She’s one of THOSE people. You call her and want to have a get-together and she’s got an entire crew lined up to where you don’t have to do the work. Well, she’s finding that it’s much more difficult to make friends. Her stories are absolutely hilarious. This is the first of many. She went out with a bunch of girls and something completely embarrassing happened. […read more]


Coming up this week:

  • Travel organization
  • Packing List printable
  • Something for you to take part in (that’s a little teaser)
  • Baby Shower – A list of the “Must Gift” Items
  • Folding tricks for your clothes (keep your closet and drawers organized)

…and a little bit of this and that peppered in. I know Mel has an update on what happened with the girls after their night out and has attempted to meet another couple. That, too, is quite a story.
