DIY Bathroom Vanity – Dry Sink to Real Sink

DIY Bathroom Vanity – Dry Sink to Real Sink

Where to begin on this one…. There was a bathroom vanity in my house that HAD to come out.  Was it ugly?  Not really. Was it too small?  A little…but it wasn’t a big deal.  So, what was the problem?  Apparently, a dog had resided in that bathroom and lifted it’s leg frequently to urinate on that vanity.  When I say frequently, I can’t even imagine how often it happened, but it was enough to make people gag walking by the room. I can’t think of anything much more disturbing…

What Should I Renovate? How Much is Too Much to Sell Your House?

What Should I Renovate? How Much is Too Much to Sell Your House?

While the current market makes you feel like you have to pull out all the stops in order to get your house sold, your bank account may tell you otherwise. The question is, “How much is too much?” when it comes to fixing up your house to put it on the market or to even potentially renovate with a future sale in mind. What are the right things to do? Where should our attention be placed for our home sale? With questions like this, I turned to Donna Hildebrand who…

Ore Ida – Reminders of Being a Kid

Ore Ida – Reminders of Being a Kid

It’s funny how food can bring you back in time. I hadn’t bought Ore Ida products for awhile. There’s no particular reason why – I just didn’t think to do it. When I brought the bags home, and put them in my freezer, I was stunned about how many times I turned to them when I was cut short on time to think of something ingenious to serve on the side of my dishes. What’s even better is that it brought me back to being a kid on those occasions…

Johnsonville Sausage and Super Easy Recipes

Johnsonville Sausage and Super Easy Recipes

I’ve always considered myself to be a person who didn’t love sausage.  I’ve tried different kinds over the years, and it just wasn’t my thing to cook with it.  In fact, I’m known to use sausage once a year – in a cornbread sausage stuffing for Thanksgiving.  That’s about the extent of my sausage use in cooking. Then, I tried some recipes with Johnsonville Mild Italian Sausage.  I was really surprised at the taste. I have chickens, and, sometimes, we get egg overkill.  One of the first recipes I tried…

Winners of the Giveaway from eatKeewa!

GOOD MORNING! When eatKeewa told me they wanted to do a giveaway for three people, I was so excited.  After having a chance to try their products, I knew it would be something people would really enjoy.  Also, after having a child have to go gluten free, it was great to find another product that she could eat – especially when she’s a snacking kind of person.  When you have to cut gluten out of your diet, choices are limited.  Many know the trials and tribulations of finding something that…

And the Winner of the Bai 5 Giveaway is….

I was more excited today to be able to post a winner to the giveaway than I ever dreamed.  It was so great to see the posts regarding Bai 5, but I have to say that I’m completely jealous of the winner because I drank all my Bai 5.  So, to the winner, while you’re drinking your Bai 5, think of me.  I’m lucky since Bai 5 is located in a store near me.  If you’re not sure if it’s located near you, go to http://drinkbai.com and use their store…

It’s a Selfish World – with Unselfish Heroes

It’s a Selfish World – with Unselfish Heroes

On a day to day basis, we all see it.  People who are so absorbed with their own lives that they discount the harm they do to other people.  They’ll run over another person with a shopping cart to get ahead of them at the register.  They’ll stomp on people to get a higher up position in a workplace.  They’ll lie, cheat, steal, and manipulate as long as their wants are met.  They cut you off while you’re driving and barely miss your car just to get one car ahead….
