What day can't be made better by a Brady Bunch earworm?
Something I've had unrestricted access to for a dozen years is not nearly gone to me. Thank goodness I obeyed my urge to save.

When my kids were 8 and 6, this woman annoyed the crap out of me. So I tried getting into her head.

And now for something completely different. (And how bad I am at predicting.)
My husband, teens & I went to Silverthorne, CO to enjoy fly fishing, a brewery, a summer concert, and standup paddle boarding. Family memories galore.

What to do with all the big emotions?

(Thoughtful dialog going on in the comments section.)
"I'm happy for my son and his birth mom about their adoption reunion, with mixed emotions, for myself. How much of my emotions should I let him see?"

I had the pleasure of working with Bryan West on trying out a SmileBrilliant TeethWhitening Kit and offering a giveaway on my review blog. The product lived up to the expectations I had, and Bryan was wonderful to deal with. He was personable, stayed in touch to the appropriate degree, and was always kind and professional. It has been a very positive experience, and I have a whiter smile to boot!

Katie led me through my first Pilates class expertly. She knew exactly how hard to work me so that I could find my edge -- to be challenged but also experience success. The studio is clean and bright, the machines well-maintained and also clean. I highly recommend Personal Pilates Plus. Disclosure: I assist with social media for Personal Pilates Plus. I love representing such a wonderful organization.
