Whatta Man Monday ~ Monday Show Edition

PicMonkey Collage3

Monday man-judging time is here again! Last week Rob Lowe beat out Adam Scott in the Parks and Rec edition. Looks like we have some left-over Brat Pack groupies in the hizzee.   This week we're taking to the a.m. Are you a Today Show gal or a Good Morning America gal?   A lot of the answer to that question can be based … [Read more...]

Snickerdoodle Martini

Snickerdoodle Martini

Hey-yo! It's Friday and that means it's time for a cocktail.   But actually I could really go for a cookie. So.... What better way to cap the week with a cookie and a cocktail? Or a cookie in a cocktail? Or maybe just a cocktail that tastes like a cookie... Yeah, that's it.   And really a cinnamony-sweet-cozy … [Read more...]

DIY Makeup Remover


Hey! So Pinterest has made me think that I need to make everything myself. DIY Windex, DIY scarfs, DIY furniture...   But since I much prefer to spend my hard earned dollars on completely non-DIY stuff I usually ignore most anything that requires me to make stuff that I could easily buy at Target.   Until I saw a picture … [Read more...]

Easy and Inexpensive Halloween Candy Bouquets


With Halloween a month away, I've been trying to come up with a cute gift idea for teachers, neighbors and special friend and family members.   Obviously what I'm going for is something that is cheap and easy, but *LOOKS* crafty enough to make me seem super talented and impressive.   I think I hit the jackpot with these … [Read more...]

Whatta Man Monday — Parks and Rec Edition!!


Sooo...   I don't know what is wrong with me.   Last week, I sat down in the recliner and discovered there was nothing good on my DVR.  I decided to go old school and (gasp!) watch something in REAL TIME (with commercials!!) and noticed that this show I've been hearing about, Parks and Recreation, was on.   I love … [Read more...]

Drinkable Pumpkin Pie


I know that I may be jumping the gun a bit on Pumpkin Season.   But in my defense, it's hard coming up with yummy nonalcoholic drink ideas...and I'm craving Fall.   Yes, it IS possible to crave an entire season.   This drink is absolutely amazing -- caffeine free, so you can share it with the kiddos AND it tastes … [Read more...]

Candy Frankenstein


So I used to be crafty. This was before I had babies, or started a website, or ...well..turned 30...   Not sure what happened to my craftiness. But I lost it.   Here's an example. About 11ish years ago I made these Candy Frankensteins.  I saw the idea in a Halloween magazine... I have no idea what magazine. But … [Read more...]

Apple Crisp Cocktail


Happy Friday!!! So is it fall yet?  Honestly, I know I am going to be over fall when it actually gets here, because I have been living like Autumn since mid-August.   Sigh.   What I am going to do today is have a drink, convince myself that I need a sweatshirt and maybe even carve a pumpkin. Try and stop … [Read more...]

Good morning, chickas!!   Another Monday, another Whatta Man.  Siiiiigh....life is hard.   Last week, Shelly pitted the two royal brothers against each other, and Harry won by a landslide.   Can't say I'm surprised...he's completely adorable!!   This week, I'm back to the final Boy Band face off.  After a couple of … [Read more...]

Hot Caramel Apple Drink


As you may know, Shelly and I have been teaming up on Caramel Apple treats all week long.   So I decided...why not add Cocktail Friday to the Caramel Apple Mix?   Obviously, this is a nonalcoholic drink (helloooo...I'm growing a human and I'd prefer her to only have ONE head), but OMG seriously...I don't say this often, but … [Read more...]

Hey Monday!  How YOU doin?   So last week One Direction beat the Wanted by one vote.  ONE VOTE! So since Brit week was such a tight race, I decided we needed to stay across the pond another week and discuss the Royals.   Don't pretend like you haven't thought about it. Prince Harry vs Prince William. Prince Harry has … [Read more...]
