I was talking with two of my closest friends the other day and we were discussing pet peeves. We hadn’t even begun the list when we got caught up in the conversation of linen closets. It drives me insane to have sheets and towels messy in a linen closet. They are clean, so fold them the same way every time so every item sits neatly on a shelf and look clean when they are put away. Why should clean linens not have the same rights as clean shirts or socks? You fold shirts the same way, you pair socks the same way, sheets and towels are no different. Read More
I have come to the conclusion that a relationship is the most extreme roller coaster you or I will ever ride.
When dating, you entered each new relationship with a deep breath and a hope that this would be the one. You experienced the thrill and excitement of the honeymoon phase and the stomach churning feeling after your first fight. Some relationships had you holding on for dear life, while others allowed you to experience life in a carefree, hands in the air kind of way.Tagged in: lifestyle, sex life, spice box, you're gonna love this
Some New Year’s Eves come along and I make a resolution. Sometimes I follow through, and other times I forget what I resolved to do by February. It’s never been an important time of renewal for me. I find that September is that time for me; the new school year, Rosh Hashanah ( the Jewish new year) and Yom Kippur (the Jewish day of atonement) prompt me to look within and refocus my resolve to attain my goals or make changes in my life. Actually, I try to do it on a regular basis. Read MoreTagged in: DIY, lifestyle, new years, resolutions, you're gonna love this
It’s the day after Christmas and all through the house is… the aftermath of a wonderful and blissful holiday season, right? You might just want to say, “cue circus music.” Where are those elves when you need them to deconstruct and store the holiday décor?
Well, put on your Santa hat, click on Pandora or Spotify and get those tunes going, and grab a glass of leftover eggnog with a shot of your favorite “get me going” liquor so you can get started on organizing and storing all the holiday décor.
Let’s get down to business!
A great way to get started with organizing all of your holiday décor is to simply sort them into categories. You will want to create a space on the floor or on the dining table to use as a workspace for indoor décor and you can use a space in your garage to separate and categorize outdoor décor.

Every year in October, I start making my Christmas shopping list. Every year I vow that I will get my shopping done early. Every year . . . . .I don’t. Usually, I spend so much time focusing on the “big gifts,” that I completely neglect the stocking stuffers until they become the very last things I purchase. I end up making a mad dash through the store on one the last days the kids are in school before Christmas break and not putting a whole lot of thought into what I’m buying.
Can you believe that Christmas 2013 is less than two weeks away? (9 days, to be exact). Last year, I wrote a post about the year’s most popular Christmas toys. It was helpful for me and, hopefully, for my readers as well. So, I decided to make another list this year of, what are predicted to be, the most popular Christmas toys of 2013. Are any of these toys on your kid’s Christmas list? Maybe they are on your Christmas list! Read MoreTagged in: Christmas, lifestyle, toys, you're gonna love this
