I can remember looking for my prom dress my senior year of high school in 1993. My mom was on a very limited budget, so we had to search high and low for the perfect prom dress. I finally found one I sort of liked, so my mom bought it for $65 and spent about $30 more buying appliques to add to it. She worked on that dress for over 5 months and finally got it like I wanted it. By the time she was done, she had probably spent around $200 total (both time and money) on the dress.
Too bad I didn’t know about JenJenHouse back then. I could have saved her a ton of time and money.

I have had my braces on now for a little over a year. I got them on in 2012 right before Christmas. Since then, it has been a hassle to keep them clean and free of food particles. Seriously — the one thing I hate more than anything is trying to talk to someone after eating, because I can almost bet you there is something stuck in my brackets. I did find out how to get your braces clean, but …shhh — it’s our little secret. Read on to find out more!
This morning I woke up to a winter snow storm like no other. We have gotten about 3 inches of sleet with a potential 6-10 inches of snow being dumped on that. In fact — as of right now, it is coming down so hard, I can’t even see the school across the street. It’s days like this that make the perfect day for writing. BUT — my trying to be a perfect blogger messes all that up.
I received a copy of Distortion (Moonlighters Series)
in exchange for my review. All opinions listed are 100% my own.
I have been reading Terri Blackstock novels since I got saved back years ago. She has always been one of my favorite authors! In her newest novel, I just could not put this book down. I read it all in less than 24 hours — it is THAT good.
I received a copy of Say Goodbye to Survival Mode in exchange for my review of them. All opinions listed are 100% my own.
I woke up one morning and could barely open my eyes. My body was screaming at me to just stay in bed, but I knew I had SO much I had to do. I had to get my work done online for the company I was working for, I had about 4 blog posts of my own that were due, 3 loads of laundry that had to be washed, dried, and folded, and I had to drive my daughter an hour away to a friends house.
My life was seriously hectic and I was running on fumes — and then I heard about Crystal Paine’s book –Say Goodbye to Survival Mode — and I desperately wanted to feel that — experience that.
No one can even imagine a wedding without beautiful flowers. Flowers decorate the venue and help you celebrate the most memorable moments of your life with your new love, friends and family.

Flowers are also used for decorating a corsage, centerpieces, cake toppers and the bridesmaid’s bouquets. You can find flowers like these at Wedding Flowers Express, http://www.weddingflowersexpress.com.au/bridal-products.aspx, and at other florists.

This post-about-pies is sponsored by FOODIE by Glam in celebration of Pi Day on March 14.
Around here — I am known as the pie queen I can make a pie basically out of anything. However, I don’t always have time to make a pie crust from scratch, spend 30 minutes cooking the ingredients and then waiting for hours for it to be done. That is why, to help celebrate Pi Day coming up on March 14th, I put together this wonderful list of 12 no bake pies that require little or no effort to throw together.
