Preserving digital memories #LyveMinds

I am going to admit here and now I'm horrible about printing our photos.  Going back since our oldest was born? I could easily guess we have over 10,000 photos I have not printed.  I'm pretty sure we wouldn't print all of them, but I've printed almost NONE of them.  It's not deliberate- but as ...

Spicy Mango Bloody Mary

Remember I said I was doing a raw veggie challenge?  Well, I've kept it up for many days. Or most of the past few weeks, anyway.  It also got me thinking, for some reason, about Thanksgiving. Maybe because it's the V8VegOut Challenge, or because the holiday itself is coming and my family has  a serious ...

What do I need to know about tires? #SACRoadWarriors #RoadRules #CarCare

tires-superheroes

We all, all, at some point in time, rely on tires. Maybe we don't use our own tires, maybe we don't even ride in vehicles. But something we purchase does, or a service we use relies on tire.  They are kind of a BIG deal in the world of auto safety. If your tires go bad, ...

#ChocolateHistory #TwitterParty 11/11

AHC Twitter party 1

Ready to party? I am.  What's the occasion?  Well, some of my favorite chocolates are going to be available for purchase where some of my other favorite chocolates are available for purchase.  What's better than CHOCOLATE?

I’ve been cracking up all day at the social media messages from my friends around Christmas. Seems to be about a 50/50 split with half of them being excited and eager to get a rush on their holiday decorating, and the other half cursing the people already posting pictures of their trees.   As for me?   I suppose ...

No matter how mature they are; or how well you’ve raised them… parenting a teen comes with a whole plethora of worries. One of the main worries comes hand in hand with the age-old rite of passage… the driver’s license.   Once your child has their license, it’s like they are unleashed into a great big world ...

Visiting Mount Vernon- Changes and Chocolate

mount-vernon-not-white

So here's a fun fact you didn't know about me- George Washington is my favorite President.  Always has been.  When I was younger, my family took a trip to Washington DC for a vacation.  My souvenir of choice was a framed George Washington print. It hung on my wall through high school.  (Sadly, I'm not ...

Give yourself a break and let someone else worry #LifeLockHealthyCredit

Doesn’t fall just seem like a time to breathe again? I love the carefreeness and fun of the summer, but the return of structure that comes with back to school is not unappreciated. If you aren’t feeling the structure in your life yet, there are a couple of things to get in the groove of ...
