Seattle Seahawks, Holy Shit!

O-M-G!!! Here’s the deal and I want to confess first thing. I’ve lived her all my life. I’m not a first round Hawks fan. I mean really, they’ve played like shit too many years and I grew up during the years of hard ass teams. My first love is Raiders, second is Bears. Then there […]

The Waitresses – Wrapping Paper

I was disappointed I couldn’t find a real video to go with The Waitresses Christmas song. This song is such an 80’s song. lol I’m really surprised there isn’t a video to go with it. But maybe there was a copyright issue. I had to get a Christmas tune up for the 80’s humpday video!

Action Update, My Word for 2015

Recycled Can Cutlery Holder

One thing facebook is good for is finding random projects. Yes, pinterest is THE place to find projects. But I get overwhelmed on there. Or maybe it’s distracted?

Elf on the Shelf is Like Police State

  It’s no secret that I’m not an elf on the shelf fan. So many things I see wrong with it. A professor is now backing me up on one idea. Big brother constantly watching over your every move.  That you should only be acting correctly because you know Elf is watching. UGH, seriously? Go […]

Thanksgiving Stuffing

  Yes, I own and run a foodie site. But I still go elsewhere to get inspiration and new recipes to tweak to my liking. Allrecipes.com has been my go to for many years now. Then I found out they are local to me and I screamed just a little in excitement. I LOVE SUPPORTING […]
