I was able to take mine down this last weekend, but there was one year that Christmas wasn’t completely down until the end of February. Whatever floats your boat, right?! Anyway, I hope I am not alone in …

Angel Food Smoothie

In Cooking & Crafting by Jen

My kids love the Angel Food Smoothie from Smoothie King, and truthfully, I kind of dig them too. The only problem is that to buy 5 plus smoothies is an investment, and so we get them as a treat every once in a while. This week my daughter was asking for one, but since we just had Christmas and spent …

This year I have been using a lot of online printable calendars for my work and sometimes there isn’t a printable calendar that fits exactly what I want.

Pumpkin Sugar Cookies

In Cooking & Crafting by Jen

Last night on a late-night girl’s run to Target, my daughter said we needed to make sugar cookies like the watermelon ones we made this summer. Only we needed to make them look like pumpkins!
