I can’t believe my babies start back to school in a few weeks.  I’m just not sure I am ready for them to start back again.  As Grammy, I love the days we spend together at the beach and the pool and going to the movies.  We did a lot of “home-cations”…
Let your child make a great first impression on the new teacher by with one of these "My first day of... " School Printables. (Grades K thru Fifth Grade.)

WHY I WILL NEVER USE ANOTHER PRODUCT FOR SCHOOL LUNCHES AGAIN!!!

I wanted to share this particular item which has saved me tons of trouble and the boys actually EAT THEIR LUNCHES. This is the item I will ALWAYS use when fixing school lunches.

Fall Decor. In August?  Well, I get it that it’s still 90+ degrees in some areas of the country.  And “Fall” is officially still a few months away.  So I am not talking about an all-out pumpkin and sweater fest.   I am talking about  getting your ideas…
Don't find yourself behind this year. Use these 5 Ways to Jump-start Your Fall Decor so you can be prepared when the cooler temps roll around.

Nothing is better than a good plate of BBQ, accept giving back to make sure Seniors receive much needed meals. AARP and Chase have teamed up to help put food on the tables of Americans 50+.

Taking car trips with little ones can seem daunting at best. But, I created this DIY Travel Kit for Kids to keep hands and minds occupied and busy.

Happy Friday, my Everyday Friends.  I am off with my wonderful Hubbs and some fabulous friends for a few days in Mexico.  So, I asked another friend of mine, the beautiful Vanessa from DIY180 to share one of her recent projects with all of you. I know you…

This is one of the MOST unprofessional companies I have ever dealt. The son is RUDE and argued with me about the product I wanted, insisting it would not work or look good even though I am an experienced designer. After agreeing to what I want and giving me an estimate, they proceeded with installing cabinets and not only did they NOT put in the cabinet I had ordered and asked for, they put in the cabinet he had insisted I use. Without my consent. I had to pay someone to remove that cabinet, buy a replacement cabinet and pay someone else to install it. Then, they charged ME a $150 freight fee because they did not have the enough of the standard countertop they always keep in stock. This should have been a cost THEY ate for doing business and not keeping in enough stock. I asked at least TWICE when I was called for payment, to please send me an ITEMIZED invoice as I refused to pay for the cabinet they installed against my wishes. I received my FIRST invoice (of ANY kind today ) along with a threat they would put a lien against my home if not paid. And it was NOT an itemized invoice but a final figure with no breakdown whatsoever. I do not understand why this company has been in business as long as it has with the kind of service they provide. They need to learn that the customer is right, and learn some manners about professionalism as well. I would NEVER suggest this company to anyone.

We stopped for dinner after we got out of Westminster Abbey. The downstairs pub was quite busy and there were only a few tables upstairs. We ordered the Ted Lion Pie of the Day which was Steak and Bleu Cheese and it was excellent. It's a nice place to stop in and is very convenient to the Abbey, Big Ben and Parliament.

Perhaps THE best Indian food we've ever eaten. We eat a lot of Indian food in the States. While in Nottingham, we looked at some reviews and chose 4550. We were promptly greeted and seated and the entire staff was genial and polite at all times. The food was phenomenal. One of the best Lamb Rogan Josh we've ever eaten. If you are in Nottingham, do yourself a favor and go here. There were three other Indian restaurants in a line, but price wise this seemed the best deal. Thank you, 4550, for a great dining experience!
