    I’m a Bookkeeper; I’m a Writer, but I am not a Chef…

    Today I thought I would share a funny story. It definitely shows where my strengths are and what my weaknesses are in life. Yesterday evening, I attempted to make hard-boiled eggs. My husband a little while back got this egg cooker from the Copper cooking line. It is supposed to be simpler and easier than just boiling the eggs in a pot of water.  He uses it all the time and he always makes it look so easy! We attempted to make a dozen hard-boiled eggs. When we finished, we only had seven eggs that made it to the finished product. My four-year-old daughter assisted me, and if I’m honest,…

    New Adventures Await for me

    Things have been changing for me!  Here’s a quick update! Family front – My daughter had her tonsils out in October and the healing process has been very slow with her.  She is very stubborn and we haven’t found where she gets it from.  She is finally doing better now.  My husband and I have made the decision to put the girls in daycare. Why? So I can go back to work.  Where am I going to work?  I’m going to be a freelancer! I know it sounds like I have jumped off the cliff, but I promise you, I am not crazy! I already have two clients under my…

    When Life Throws You Lemons Change the Recipe

    You have two option (well maybe three); you either learn to make lemonade, or you cry.  (the third option, you make lemonade and add some vodka).  Either way you look at it, life changes and you need to learn how to deal. Life comes at you fast, I mean really fast.  There is very little time to stop and smell the roses sometimes. Things that you really want to do get put on the back burner while things that aren’t as important to your soul are suddenly front in center.  It is difficult to find balance and often you feel like you have failed at life.  The one golden rule in…

    Fall is here…

    Fall is here. It is one of my favorite time of year. Things get back to a normal routine and normal patterns return. The leaves start to turn colors and it shows that there can be beauty in death. Anyway…. Fall has come back around and for some reason, this year it feels much more amazing. Why might you ask? Well, let’s write a list. (I just love lists!) First off, it’s not ungodly hot and I do not feel like I am going to melt. Even in my air conditioned house, it still was hot as hell out there this summer!  Also, bugs go back to hell, where they…

    Week of 8/14 Deals

    Welcome! This is the deals for this week (until next Wednesday!) I am going to break down this list into three different sections. A Target section, a HyVee section, and a Walmart Price Matcher section. These are the three main stores I go to save money. I go to these three stores for different reasons. Target, for example, I can use a store coupon, a manufacturer coupon, and a cartwheel offer on top of sale prices per one item! (Have no clue what I am talking about? Check out here). I’ll explain the others as I go along! Well, let’s start. Target As this progresses, I won’t be as wordy…

    Five Signs You Are A Creative Person

    You dream in vivid color. You often are caught staring out the window. You struggle with knowing who you are. If you nodded your head to any of these statements above, there is a chance you might be creative. But how do you really know if you are creative? Is there a test? Do you have to take a class? Can you read a book?  Well, no. It’s not that easy. To paraphrase Bob Marley, nothing worth doing is easy and if it’s easy, it’s not worth doing. So take a moment, take a deep breath and read. If any of these traits click with you, there is a strong…
