Do you dread going to the grocery store every week? We hate it! It is just my husband and I but it can get so expensive! We are always looking for ways to save with coupons, rebates and any other way that we can. Nothing drives us more crazy than buying fresh items just to toss them and watch our hard earned money go in the trash because we did not have time to use the items like we had planned.
An early lesson in my first wine class was that when evaluating wines, personal preferences are irrelevant. You taste buds change over the yeas. You will find wines you loved for many years just do not hit the same notes they once did. What I like or would personally buy or drink does not matter when comparing wines to their background. All that should be considered when critiquing a wine, is how closely as they adhere to the characteristics that have been established for its variety and style. Right off the battle looking at these three wines, Kaiken Terroir Series Torrontes Montes Dry Farmed Alpha Cabernet and the Montes Dry Farmed Alpha Syrah, I immediately dismissed them because they look very dry. My personal tastes sit somewhere in the semi-dry mark.
Are you looking for ways to take your mind off of a bad day or to de-stress from a long work week? A great way to relax is by coloring in an adult coloring book. Before you start snickering or rolling your eyes, it’s true! Not only is coloring fun, think back to your days as a kid, it’s a perfect way to relieve stress. Mindware® offers a truly unique adult coloring book that I am currently enjoying along with a wide array of colored pencils.
I started using adult coloring books two years ago when I found out my dad had lung cancer. I needed something to help take my mind off of things, and working on a jigsaw puzzle wasn’t working. I went to Barnes & Noble to walk around and I saw a stand of adult coloring books. I browsed through them and found a few that I really liked. Within a week or two I was obsessed, and it was a great distraction…. [read more]

I was so excited when I received my copy of Tangled: Before Ever After being one of my favorite Disney movies. I have three young children ages five, three, and eighteen months, all who love anything Tangled. It’s always so nice to be able to sit down and watch a family movie without having to worry about what might show up on the screen.

When I was growing up, I can only recall a few Asian actors in a handful of movies and television shows. Even the toys I grew up with, they were all blonde hair, with the exception of Strawberry Shortcake and My Little Pony. My favorite Cabbage Patch Dolls all had blonde hair as well. These days, dolls come in all colors! There are also all kinds of television shows and movies with more variety!
Believe it or not, movies have the power to change our lives. A great, thought-provoking film can awaken our souls and stir something deep within us. To me, The Zookeeper’s Wife is one of those life altering movies. The story played through my mind for days after I saw it and the message left an imprint on my heart. Act courageously when faced with the evils of life. We can be the change we wish to see in the world…. [read more]
