Netflix Junky

I admit that in the last couple years, after discovering instant streaming on Netflix, I have become a bit addicted to watching several years worth of episodes at a time.

When I was in middle school I did enjoy a good brown paper bag book cover but I did not have an entire theme for decorating my locker. Either I completely missed the trend or it didn’t exist in the 80’s. I would like to think it didn’t exist. I mean surely I would have… READ MORE »

Traditions Or Not The 2nd Time Around?

The first time I got married I did it the traditional way. In a church, with a big white dress, and all the ‘normal’ trappings that come with a wedding. I happen to like tradition but I also feel a little strange doing it the same way I did the first time. Partly, because I… READ MORE »

Trip To Plymouth Wisconsin

When you travel food is a big part of the fun. At least in my opinion because I like food. It’s fun to find things that are not the same old stuff you can get at home. In Plymouth, Wisconsin there is a place called Chester’s. It is an A & W style drive in… READ MORE »

Today we are taking a break from our typical blog posts to support the ‘Moment for Meso‘ campaign. Do you know what Meso is?
