Trick or Treat, Don’t Smell My Feet

I couldn’t sleep last night because of thinking about my “game plan.” Those that know me know I am quite obsessed with “special occasions” like birthdays and holidays.  I believe that a kids’ most vivid memories usually involve those special times (at least mine do) so I think it is important that they be as special … Continue reading Trick or Treat, Don’t Smell My Feet

Why You Should Never Tell Anyone They Are Too Old To Trick-or-Treat

I will never forget the last time I went trick-or-treating.  It was the year it finally happened – my Mom said I was mature enough to be trusted to wear my Dad’s army uniform as my costume!  I was giddy with excitement.  I had looked forward to those words for a long time. I was going to … Continue reading Why You Should Never Tell Anyone They Are Too Old To Trick-or-Treat

I Got Tricked, But You Could Get A Treat #FrozenCostume #Giveaway

When Jimmy was a toddler, he became quite obsessed with Halloween.  One day he announced that he wanted to have the scariest house in the neighborhood.  I took that challenge and ran with it.  I started stockpiling terrifying and gruesome décor. November 1st became my “Black Friday.”  I’d be up bright and early ordering discounted … Continue reading I Got Tricked, But You Could Get A Treat #FrozenCostume #Giveaway

Jolly Old St. Nick-or-Treat

Rescheduling “Trick or Treat, Give Me Something Good To Eat” has proven to be a bit…umm…tricky. Unfortunately there wasn’t a workable date to transform the event into “Snacksgiving” (I thought that was a little less offensive than calling it “Thanksgivoweenie.”). I did, however, have a meeting yesterday and am happy to report it will be held in conjunction with a … Continue reading Jolly Old St. Nick-or-Treat

Check Out a New Way To Check Out #PayWithMyPhone

I have a confession: I have check-out-a-phobia. Even if I am 100% sure that my balance is paid off and/or I have sufficient funds in my bank account, I am always convinced that my credit or debit card will be denied when I’m paying at a store.  Always. My fear stems from two nightmare trips.  To Costco.  Yes, COSTCO!  Yes, Costco BOTH times! The first … Continue reading Check Out a New Way To Check Out #PayWithMyPhone

Heidi Klum and I Are So Much Alike, We Should Be BFFs!

Don’t Pull Down My Underwear

“Trick Or Treat, Give Me Something Good To Eat” was supposed to happen today.  But Sandy happened instead.  She shut down everything here for the past two days.  Frankenstorm apparently wanted something BAD to eat. The lyrics to that song end “…if you don’t, I don’t care.  I’ll pull down your underwear.”  I realize I … Continue reading Don’t Pull Down My Underwear

Invisible Illness Week: Thirty Things You May Not Know About My Illness(es)

This week, my fellow sick bloggers and I were asked to answer 30 questions.  And by sick, I don’t mean “Dude, your blog is sick, yo.”   The questions are for “Invisible Illness Week.” Hopefully the answers will help spread awareness of problems caused by chronic illnesses that are unheard of.  And unseen.  An invisible illness is one that may wreak … Continue reading Invisible Illness Week: Thirty Things You May Not Know About My Illness(es)

My Son Is a Cereal Killer: Family Movie Night with Big G

This post is sponsored by General Mills but my love of their cereal and family fun is all my own! Family movie night at our house is always interesting because we have comfy, reclining couches to seat 5…but a family of 6.  When the movie is about to start, it’s like musical chairs meets WWE to … Continue reading My Son Is a Cereal Killer: Family Movie Night with Big G
