Foodie Friday – Dagwood Breakfast Sammie

Foodie Friday – Dagwood Breakfast Sammie
Every once in a while, I get carried away with a meal. This is an example of that. Let me begin by saying that David cooks breakfast every weekend. Because I’m not one of those people, like my husband, who wake up starving, I don’t like to eat the minute I wake up. But, because he does, he makes breakfast on the weekends. Saturday morning rolled around, and David wanted something different [...]

Wordless Wednesday – Holiday World

Wordless Wednesday – Holiday World
Last weekend we went to Holiday World in Santa Claus, Indiana to celebrate the birthdays of our friends children. And, although I’m not a huge fan of roller coasters, I love amusement parks. I love all of the other rides and games and, most of all, I love watching my husband ride all of the biggest roller coasters with the enthusiasm and delight of a child. Below are pictures of him riding [...]

Foodie Friday – Mofongo Relleno

Foodie Friday – Mofongo Relleno
As you know, David and I were just in Puerto Rico. So, this week, I thought I’d share with you a wonderful local favorite we discovered while we were there. I don’t have the recipe, though I did try to get it for you, so I’ll just have to tell you about it and share pictures. Monfongo is a fried plantain-based dish. From what I understand, it’s usually made with fried green [...]

Backyard Brew and Roasted Parm Potatoes
Aloha, again! Well, Melissa is still on vacation (they’re in St. Lucia today!) but she’s due back Monday. Who thinks she’ll just stay and never come back? *raises hand* See, I know Melissa, and I also know her 2 week vacations have a way of turning into 3 month vacations! But, no worries, she always comes back. Eventually. Seasoning Mixes, Marinades, and Backyard Brews! Oh, My! Quite [...]

My Solution to Military White Walls

My Solution to Military White Walls
Aloha! While Melissa and David are off on another adventure, on another tropical island (today they’re in Barbados!), I wanted to share with y’all a fun and easy project that my kids loved and solved a huge dilemma for me. BARE WHITE WALLS…. eek! As much as I love moving around and living the military life, I hate decorating new homes. Maybe because I am really bad at it. But whatever [...]

Old School Meets Social Media

Old School Meets Social Media
I read an article last month on MarketWatch that said 60% of people between the ages of 50-64 are using social media such as Facebook, and 43% of people 65 and over are using it! That’s huge. Although, at 43, I don’t fall into either of those categories, social media is very important to me. Particularly now that I’m blogging. But even before I was blogging, I was on FB and Myspace, [...]
