Bon Jovi, Boston, and My Boyfriend.

I recently had the opportunity to go into my very favorite city, Boston.  For my birthday in January I was given tickets to see Bon Jovi and lets just say April could NOT get here fast enough.  I had two tickets.  Hmmm…..who should I take?  The choice was pretty easy.  I decided to go with my boyfriend.  Now before people start getting hot flashes, relax.  I call my husband Jeremy my boyfriend when we go away together because it is so nice to be away from home and the kids it feels like when we were dating. If you were hoping for a...

Money Makeover

Money Makeover

I like to spend money.  I love getting packages in the mail and trying on new clothes.  There is one problem, though.  I have no money.  My husband calls me the “richest poor person he knows” and that is accurate.  He has been trying to get us on the same page about spending for a while. Either he is saving and I am spending…or he is saving and I am spending. Yeah, that isn’t a typo, it just so happens it is usually me that is the “money free spirit” and he is the money gestapo. We recently had an...

Save Me From Grocery Store Rage!

I know a lot of people that have road rage.  I am one of those people and even wrote a blog post about it.  It is something I struggle with, and I admit it.  What I am about to admit to you is a different kind of rage that I deal with.  One that is inevitable and concerning.  Maybe you struggle as well.  What is this new rage?  It is GSR or more commonly known in my home as Grocery Store Rage.  It causes lots of eye rolling, mumbling, and saying to yourself on repeat “SERIOUSLY?” Grocery Stores are a melting pot of people that are...

Safely Sharing the Road with Motorcycles

With the weather warming up, motorcycles and bicycles will be out in full force. It’s important that we all look out for each other and share the road. When you and a bike get into an accident, the person on two wheels is almost always injured, sometimes severely or fatally. Don’t let that happen to you as a driver or to them. Here’s how to safely share the road. Driving Around Motorcycles Motorcycles tend to make people nervous. They’re smaller than cars and often go a lot faster. Riders zip in and out of traffic, and we’ve all seen the...

Cholesterol, Obesity, and Being 40

You might be asking what the 3 things in the title all have in common?  Well, that is easy.  They are all things that are currently in my life.  I turned 40 mid January of this year and with that came a great gift.  This gift came in a bottle with my name on it and inside were tiny treasures.  These treasures had special instructions.  I was to take one every day, to keep me from dying of a heart attack.  Ok, not really, but kind of!  I had my physical and blood work and was told that my total cholesterol was 310 and my LDL (that’s the...

The Comeback Kid!

Posted by on 9:38 am in , | Comments Off on The Comeback Kid!

There is a lovely girl I know.  She is tall and sweet and graceful.  Her name is Maddy and she is my niece.  Maddy just turned 16 years old and she is a kind girl who is also a dancer.  From the time she was young her mother had her in dance class.  She sacrificed a lot, and still does, so Maddy can do what she loves.  The first time I watched her dance I thought to myself “she clearly gets this talent from me.” Listen, in my head I am a fantastic dancer – she very well could get it from me!   When she was up on the stage...

Good Morning!

Good Morning!

I am currently in a training process.  This process is severe.  It is painstaking and not for the faint of heart.  Some could say it is similar to training for a marathon, others may say it is borderline heroic.  I can see how they may think that but really, I am just trying to be a morning person. You see, I have never particularly been fond of mornings – mostly because I love sleep.  I love my comfy mattress and cozy duvet and get sad when we need to part ways. Every night I have the best of intentions.  I am going to get up and...
