Random Wednesdays


Like many people, I waited until I was an adult to finally decide to get braces. I’ve always had a slight overbite/overjet, but it wasn’t something I couldn’t live with. My teeth never caused me any self-esteem issues (except on FaceTime, which made those bad-boys look huge!)  I didn’t have any issues with my teeth until a few month ago I noticed some shifting in my bottom teeth… {Continue Reading}

Cornmeal Yeast Rolls

Today’s Random Wednesday post is inspired by the upcoming Easter holiday. Most people cook a big Easter dinner or have a nice brunch. No matter what you have planned, I have the perfect addition for your meal. Cornmeal Yeast Rolls. I came across this recipe maybe five years ago; I think it might have been a Taste of Home recipe, but I have since made it my own with a couple of changes here and there… {Continue Reading}


Okay, it’s not really my anniversary, but yesterday was the 10 month anniversary of my marriage. I know some of you are saying 10 months… that’s not an anniversary. But, try telling that to my husband.

Although we’ve only been married for 10 months, we have known each other 10 years and dated for the majority of that time, with a couple of stints apart. During that whole time we never celebrated an anniversary; the idea never came up once… {Continue Reading}

Top 10 Signs You Are Obsessed With Your Dog

I’ve had lots of pets over the years. I’ve owned dogs, cats, guinea pigs, fish, turtles, sea horses, hermit crabs, and rabbits. But out of all those adorable creatures, dogs are number 1 on my list.

School’s Out For Summer

On my way home from work last night I noticed there were lots of cars at the Middle School up the street from my house. I guess they were having an assembly or graduation… that’s really not important though. What’s important is my reaction. I was immediately overjoyed! Anyone who knows me knows why. I just realized that Summer vacation is just around the corner. And that means… you guessed it… {Continue Reading}

2 oz. of Matcha

For years, I have been a faithful green tea drinker. The first thing I do when I get to work is head for the break room to get my hot water. I’ve read and heard about the amazing benefits of green tea, but honestly… it never made me feel any different.

One day I switched to Lipton’s Magnificent Matcha and suddenly… {Continue Reading}

The Ketogenic Decision

Raise your hand if you told yourself you were going to eat healthier and exercise more in 2018.

Now keep your hand up if you’ve kept it up. Great job! Even if you put your hand down, I feel like you should be commended. At least you tried.

Some of us start out with such lofty goals, right. We’re going to eat right and work out four times a week. When in reality we quickly realize that peanut butter and celery doesn’t taste nearly as good as a deluxe uno pizza… {Continue Reading}
