    Be Careful What You Teach Your Children

    If it hadn’t of been for my mother, I wouldn’t have this career. Seriously. I think about it often this time of year. Why? Because every October and November she would drag me out to every flea mall/ antique store in and around our area and make me hunt for every vintage Santa mug, pitcher or cookie jar I could find. On the regular – she would take me to yard sales and estate sales. At a young age, mom taught me how to hunt. Eventually, I developed an eye for things I liked and I would put them away in my hope chest. Mom drilled me to look for…

Ha, there’s no time like the present time. We began with one single item. Within minutes 5 people had it in their cart. Less…

    Sweet Little Furry Surprise

    She’s sweet, cute and altogether a little energy ball. It’s been a month since we found our new little furry surprise. I can’t believe I’m just now writing about it. Her name is Priscilla Lemon Bowman. Also known as WeeWee. It was late one evening and I opened the back door to our deck. That’s when I spotted her. Within 5 minutes Aaron had captured her. She made a really sad kitty cry so we gave her a small bowl of milk. This is the night Priscilla become part of our family. Since then she has adjusted well to Rhett, Ellen and Oscar and thankfully they have adjusted well to…

    My Keurig Days Are Over

    Never thought I’d say it but my Keurig days are indeed over. Keurig is one of the rmain reasons I began drinking coffee. My mom bought me a Keurig for Christmas 2013. She said it was from my “hot chocolate”.. One thing led to another, then I began dating Mr. Coffee Lover and now I can’t live without it. T H E    T A S T E It began with Aaron. He no longer liked the taste on Keurig coffee. A year later, I started noticing a plastic-y taste. I much preferred coffee from a restaurant or coffee shop. It just tasted so much better. T H E   …
