On Saturday, we celebrated my 40th birthday. We don’t celebrate the way most people do — with a huge crowd, going out to eat, or going all out. We like having a small intimate get together with our friends or our kids, and that is exactly what we did this time around. It’s funny, because I always seem to forget to take pictures, but this year, I wanted to capture the moment.
One thing I love more than anything is a delicious pickle. Now — I am not one of those girls who likes store bought pickles. No way. I love homemade pickles and I have a quick and easy refrigerator dill pickles recipe for you. It takes me literally minutes to make this, and I always have a homemade crunchy pickle on hand to top my juicy burgers with.
I love making homemade goodies to give to my friends and family. I always like to find ways to personalize them, so that they know how much fun I had making something special for them. When I was first introduced to Kidecals, I thought, how am I going to use these school labels — we homeschool! But then, I found out that they have personalized baking decals as well and NOT just decals for school supplies.
Ever since Steve Irwin came on the television with his Crocodile Hunter show, I have wanted to visit Australia. It’s not about the animals, but the adventure I seek. I want to go on a walk about like John Locke from Lost. I want to watch baby kangaroos frolicking with their mamas, and I want to visit the Australia Zoo. Yes — that is definitely my dream vacation.

Fall break is right around the corner for our area and that means many families will be heading out to a new destination. Many of these families (mine included), always take our pets along, so today I wanted to share with you some tips to get your pet ready for fall travel.
I knew I liked Longhorn Steakhouse for a reason! Any company that will go out of their way to showcase and honor heroes, that is definitely where I am going to give my business. I was excited to learn about Longhorn Steakhouse and how they plan to celebrate America’s first responders.
One of my all time favorite children’s show has been Veggie Tales. We have been watching it since the very first episode and have seen every single one since. Yes — even though my kids are grown, you can find me huddled up on the couch, watching Bob and Larry with their crazy antics. My newest favorite veggie though is Mirabelle, played by none other than Kellie Pickler.
Last night, I started contemplating my birthday coming up Sunday. Yes — I’ll be the ripe old age of 40. While most women start to have a midlife crisis at this point, I pride myself on saying — 40 doesn’t bother me. Yet, the more I think about that, the more I realize that it is bothering me. I learned that lesson through my minivan.
Ever since I can remember I have been a lemon eater. I eat them like candy. I am not even joking. I am also a coffee drinker, chocolate eater, and serious food grazer. However, I did not know until recently that all of those things ruin the enamel on my teeth. Taking care of my teeth is super important these days (especially since I got braces), so taking care of that all too important portion of my smile is something I am trying to do. That is why I am glad I was introduced to the newest Colgate product — Colgate Enamel Health Toothpaste.
