As a member of the Verizon Voices Program, I am asked to host two parties during which I share information about Verizon products and service. On October 6th I hosted the first of the two, and I’m excited to share with you some of my pictures from that day.
Verizon generously provides all of the awesome products we’re asked to talk about for demonstration and giveaway. Among the giveaways for [...]
St. Thomas is beautiful and David and I had such a wonderful time there. And, because the snorkeling was so incredible, I wanted to share with you some of the sealife we captured.
I hope you enjoy my pictures and have a wonderful (not-so)Wordless Wednesday!
I love a party, so if you’d like to keep up with my Linky parties, as well as what David and I are doing, please subscribe to my RSS [...]
It’s not a secret that I love to cook, but I’m not sure I’ve shared with you my cookware obsession. I suppose most who love to cook have collected a few more pieces than most, but I love cookware like I love shoes.

But in the Autumn and Winter, I break out the crock pot and make more hearty meals like stews and roasts.
Roasts are so easy in the crockpot, and the leftovers are tender and ready for whatever creation [...]
There are only a couple restaurants that, any time we visit them, you can be pretty darn certain we’re going to order the Spinach Artichoke Dip. For me, it’s a dip that can be done very well or very badly, with very little inbetween.
One of the restaurants that does it really well is California Pizza Kitchen. There’s just something about that bubbly hot dip that is just irresistible.
This past weekend David and I went to Branson, Mo and was able to (partially) check off another item on our bucket list; traveling Historic Route 66.
Traveling Route 66 from Chicago to LA is something we’ve wanted to do for a long time, and are finally planning, but just getting to drive it from Springfield, Mo to St. Louis, MO was a thrill.
My only “complaint” was that Missouri [...]
