SISTERLY LOVE

Saturday, May 21, 2016

She did it!!! I mentioned in this post, that my sister was asked to deliver the commencement speech for the high school where we both graduated. She was a little nervous, a smidge on the freaked out side. However, a brand new haircut lifted her spirits, and she "killed" the speech!View post

PARTY LIKE ITS 1983

Thursday, May 19, 2016

I love my sister, in spite of the fact that she is younger, skinnier, bigger chested, AND a published author. I mean come-on people, that is a hard act to follow.View ...

COMFORT AND QUALITY

Saturday, May 14, 2016

I know some of you have seen the "save versus splurge" type posts. They will show you a picture of an item, and then show you another picture that looks pretty similar, and then you have to guess which item cost the most. Sometimes it is hard to tell, especially from a picture. When you ...
