nailed it

"The kids are all off to school", I said to myself.

"I'll make a treat", I said to myself.

"I'll make no-bake cookies", I said to myself.

"I'll jazz 'em up a bit", I said to myself.

So, I thought to myself, "Self, wouldn't it be yummy to add chocolate chips and chunky peanut butter to the no-bake cookies?"  "Why yes, I think it would."

That's how all these stories start...

muffin top

I like a simple recipe. A recipe that doesn't make me think too much in the morning.  A recipe where the instructions don't require too much brain power before I've had anything to eat.  If you are like me, this muffin recipe is for you.  It's a recipe for the Domestic goddesses or gods whichever the case might be.

frugal vs cheap

When we moved, we gave back a bunk bed to friends that gave it to us since we weren't going to need it anymore.  We gained space and lost beds.  So I hit the D.I.

If you don't know what that store is you must not be from Utah or Idaho, but I digress.

I found a day bed.  It was originally going to be 25 bucks (that reminds me of a joke),

change change change...

Change is good.

We're like a muscle.  We have to be ripped in order to grow.

Comfort zone, schmumfert zone.

So we moved.
