I am trying to eat more protein these days. Handsome Hubby eats chicken and salsa almost every morning for breakfast. The boys are eating more and more and more…. everything. What’s a girl to do? Well, one of the things is to make sure there’s plenty of chicken on hand and ready to eat. This […]
The best and easiest way to organize and store Christmas decorations? Organize them by color.
I had a different post on tap for today, but I am feeling antsy and wanted to get this off my chest. I do not panic easily… I am not a hysteric, but I firmly believe in being organized and being prepared. We have been having a lot of little earthquakes here in Southern California, and there […]

Handsome Hubby and I will also be celebrating our 10th anniversary in September and we would love to take a special trip somewhere, just the two of […]
Packing up Christmas always makes me feel a little sad. (Also a little tired, there is a lot to pack up.) I have been asked how it is possible to change my color scheme every year… it’s all about color coding and organization, baby! It’s so simple, it’s kinda stupid. Store the decor by color. […]
