DIY FAIL: Glittery Acorns

When I decided to get back into blogging, I made a promise to myself to include the good, the bad, and the ugly within my posts. Well folks, I have a DIY FAIL to share with you today. It could have been worse, I suppose, but I’m not thrilled with the time spent for the end result. […]

Simple Tuna Salad

We laid in a big supply of canned tuna for this year’s hurricane season and I hope I’m not jinxing us by deciding that it’s time to start using some of it, since the season is nearing its end. Now, if you know me, you also know that I’m a lacto-ovo vegetarian, which means I […]

Easy & Unique Pineapple Cheese Ball

I received this delicious recipe from one of my favorite people after she made it for a baseball tailgate a few years ago. I’ve probably made it five times already. It’s always popular because it’s tasty and unique. The truth is, it’s pretty easy to make, too! To make the pineapple cheese ball, you’ll need: 8 ox. […]

DIY Puppy Pearly Whites

Okay, so let me be honest. The toothpaste is DIY. The actual usage of the paste on our canine children is definitely a two person job! Hopefully your pups will enjoy getting their teeth brushed more than ours do. (Please note: one of our doggies is happy to EAT the toothpaste; he just doesn’t appreciate the rotating […]

I live in Florida. It’s hot and humid. We regularly have bad hair days and accept them. In addition to crazy hair, sometimes makeup will melt right off your face, as in you just spent time getting ready only to look like you just woke up a mere 30-60 minutes later. It can happen as quickly […]

Puppy Pool Fun

One of my favorite things about our new house is the fact that we have a saltwater pool inside our lanai. In all the houses I’ve lived in throughout my many moves as a child and adult, I’ve never had my own personal pool. It’s fantastic to be able to hop right in after a […]

Swiss Roll Ice Cream Cake

So this funny looking cake may appear to fall into the “Pinterest Fail” category, but I’m happy to report that while I have a ways to go in perfecting the look of this treat, its taste did not disappoint. Last Thanksgiving, I was assigned dessert as my contribution to the meal. In my mind, simple […]

Simple, Quick Marinade

I am not a chef. I’m not even much of a cook. To make things even more complicated, I’m a vegetarian, so I have no idea how to season meat and poultry for my husband. Sometimes I follow recipes, but sometimes I make things up on the fly. This little combo was quick and easy […]

Organize Your Messy Jewelry Drawer!

Okay, so I may or may not have a weakness for jewelry. While I love my few very nice, expensive pieces, I’m also a sucker for costume jewelry to add a pop of color or unique accessory to an outfit. The “problem” is that I own a ton of it. While I’m very grateful that […]
