Friday Favorites–Gifts to Make for Kids

I hope you all had a happy, peaceful Thanksgiving!  We spent the day with our kids, which always makes for a good day.  We also put up the Christmas decorations, a little early, so my son could enjoy them for a while before he leaves for the Navy.  We’re throwing a going away party for…

Friday Favorites–Star Wars

So, there’s this little movie coming out next month – maybe you’ve heard of it?  Just a small film in the Star Wars series.  No biggie.  It’s not like I grew up on the originals or anything.  I didn’t want to marry Han Solo, mostly so Chewbacca would have my back.  And forget about those…

Friday Favorites–Hit the Road

We don’t have a big vacation planned for this summer, but we seem to be taking a lot of smaller trips for my husband’s job.  Hey, traveling is traveling, right?  Since it’s just the two of us most of the time now (and all the time come December) it’s pretty easy to just pick up…
