    Halloween

    October 24th, 2012 admin

    Halloween is by far my favorite holiday. Carving pumpkins, dressing up, watching scary movies, I love it all! Once October 1st rolls around, I am dragging out the Halloween decorations and tuning into my favorite Halloween station on Pandora. Around mid-October, my house is covered in hanging bats, grinning pumpkins, and hairy spiders. This year I [...]

    July Birth Flower

    July 5th, 2012 admin

    My beautiful baby girl is getting so big- on July 12th she is turning 4 years old! Gone are the days when I had to feed her by hand or get her dressed, my little firecracker is very independent and wants nothing more than to feel grown up. I decided that I am going to [...]

    A Family Friendly 4th of July

    June 29th, 2012 admin

    Now that I have an eight-month-old daughter this 4th of July is going to be much different than in past years. I used to look forward to the large celebrations, loud booming fireworks, and staying up way later than I probably should. Now I worry about the fireworks scaring my daughter, or even worse waking [...]

    Why, Thank You!

    June 27th, 2012 Katy

    A couple months ago I went on a road trip with my boyfriend. With gas prices, food and lodging, our trip was on a budget. We took the scenic route from Vancouver, WA into Nevada and ended up in San Diego before we made it back home. Our friends and family saved us several hundreds [...]

    It’s Summertime!

    June 20th, 2012 admin

    I love each season as it comes, but I really love summer. I look forward to it all year long! The long days, that big bright yellow thing in the sky comes out (if we are lucky!) and bare feet in the grass. One of my favorite summer activities is lounging in my parents backyard [...]

    Valentine’s Day!

    February 8th, 2012 admin

    As a girl I had wild dreams of one day experiencing a Valentines day like they they do in the movies. Rose petals everywhere, champagne for the masses and prince charming on one knee with a diamond that would put the Heart of the Ocean to shame.  In grade school my dad brought me and [...]

    They Say It’s Your Birthday…

    January 5th, 2012 admin

    On Saturday I turn 27… I have mixed feelings about growing older each year, while I usually welcome the future with open arms there is something to be said for the events that made up the last year of your life what it is today. Saying goodbye to a great year is hard, take this past [...]

    Post Christmas Poinsettia Care

    December 26th, 2011 admin

    Christmas is over with now what do I do with my Poinsettia? Once the poinsettia bloom has gone, the leaves on your plant should be all green and won’t look so holiday like anymore.  Poinsettias are a great plant to keep year round on your desk especially if your office has Fluorescent light.  They don’t like [...]

    History of Christmas Wreath

    December 14th, 2011 admin

    The original meaning of word “wreath” is unity, circle of life, and eternity.  In the ancient Rome the civilians would decorate wreaths and hang them on doors to represent victory when solders would return home from war.  This is how the whole “hanging” wreaths began but the whole history started when new Christian Germanic people [...]
