Life Lesson #4 from savvy Emily Lockwood
One more day! BEFORE AND EVER SINCE is almost here! Check out Life Lesson #4 from Emily in BEFORE AND EVER SINCE... #4 - PAINT IS HOT. ...an excerpt from the book... I went out through the garage, where Ben was leaned over a five gallon bucket of paint, stirring it with a flat piece of wood. Next to him on a makeshift table, were two other small cans of paint with little wooden stir sticks poking out. “Why do you do that?” I asked. “What?” he responded, not looking up. “Bait him like that,” I said, picking my way carefully around the random tools and pieces of ...

Life Lesson #3 from BEFORE AND EVER SINCE…
Are you enjoying the lessons? :) Let's see what Emily has to teach us today. Emily Life Lesson #3… Assuming your ex has gotten smarter in your absence is a fail. “So, what’s up?” I asked after a pause. “I don’t know if Cass has done anything with that paperwork, if that’s what you’re wondering.” He shook his head minimally, still looking at the pictures, and the little warning bells went off in my head. Kevin was nothing, if not opinionated and in your face. For him to come to my house and then not come look me in the eye—told me it wasn’t going to be his normal ... Read More

It’s my Birthday! Gimme some Yoga! I mean a Blizzard…
Hello and good morning! And it is a good morning, as mornings go, because I've hit a number today. One of those "9" numbers that precede a milestone age, like 20 or 30 or 40. Or 50. Yes...today I'm 49. :) Once upon a time, I probably wouldn't admit that, or rally my own birthday, but hey...I've earned it! I've been on this earth for 49 years, and sometimes that's hard to believe! I can remember things from when I was 5. My first sweet little boyfriend heartbreak at 10. Spreading my new little teenage wings at 14 and going places my mom didn't know I was going. My 16th birthday ... Read More
About the coffee…
It's Saturday, y'all, and I'm sitting here in my rocker/recliner, sipping my favorite brew...and wondering what makes this my favorite brew? It's nothing special. Folgers regular blend, with Coffeemate lite creamer and a smidgeon of Coffeemate Hazelnut. The regular creamer to make it creamy and the tiny bit of Hazelnut to give it a twist. Sometimes I do Amaretto instead of Hazelnut, or Caramel, but I don't like my daily coffee to be sweet. Just a little flavored. Nothing overboard. Now, all that being said, I love Starbucks. And when I go there I either get a vanilla latte with a ... Read More

Christmas Crack (yes…it’s that good)
My nephew brags that I'm his crack dealer, and I proudly take a bow. Christmas Crack, that is. And it is truly addicting and amazing. All you need is nuts and chocolate and a crockpot. :) And these are my ingredients, but you can substitute any nuts you like and any type of chocolate chips you like. This has varied from the original that I got the first time, so feel free to tweak it for you! 16 oz jar of peanuts (salted or unsalted) pkg of pecans halves, walnuts, whatever nuts you'd like (I added for the nutty freaks around here) 12 oz bag semi-sweet chocolate chips 12 ...
