Blogging…love it…not my strong suit!

Miss B is 6!!!

I can’t believe it. My little Miss B is 6 years old. Raising B has not been an easy thing and is far from over. But she sure is fun. From the first days at the hospital there was lots of screaming on her end. She was a fairly easy delivery but she quickly and […]

Steal deals and savin’ dough $$$

I am not be the best dressed person around. I like to be comfortable and functional BUT also cute. Having two kids, living in Utah and doing the regular car pool, grocery store runs and weekly date night doesn’t require much as far as fashion is concerned. I LOVE a good deal and have been […]
