Parting Words

I read a blog post today that really struck home, in both a good and bad way. A fellow Mom let off some steam about all the “rules” of parenting and how absolutely tiresome they are.  The rant got my attention because the title referenced slathering toxic cream (sunscreen) onto her children. I actually thought …

Meet the Zombees


Well, hello there. I’ve made what, one post in the last year? Where has the time gone?! One minute I’m breezing along making daily posts and the next minute I’m a stranger to my own blog. I’m afraid I see a pattern developing. A regrettable pattern, but a pattern nonetheless. The kiddos are growing up …

The Vaulted Files: Christmas Wreath Storage Solution


I originally wrote this in early 2014 before my unintended sabbatical from blogging here.  Back to work, now… So, there I was, packing away all the Christmas décor after Epiphany this year when it dawned on me that I now had sixteen – no, make that seventeen – Christmas wreaths hung in and on my …

On the Ball


I don’t usually do random product recommendations, but I am so taken with four new things recently, that I just have to share them with you. You already know that I love to can foods. One of my future projects is to create the perfect Paleo Marinara and can up a ton of it. Tomato …

The Vaulted Files: The Fine Line

  (I am finding a lot of crazy stuff in the vault, which duly represents the crazy in my head.  Much like the saying goes for blowing your nose: “Better out than in.” LOL.  Enjoy…) I am an absolutist.  (Is that a word?  I should have looked that up first…sorry.)  I would normally say I’m an …

The Vaulted Files: Infestation??? Horrors!!

I have a rather insane storage vault of unpublished posts, both for this blog and for my life and love ramblings over at DomAndLori.  Some of them are not just unpublished, they are unfinished.  But I intend at some point to publish them anyway. Here is the first to come out of the vault:    Let …

Zip-a-dee Do!

I don’t know about you, but I’m having a hard time with my recipes lately.  Forget that I am trying like the devil to find healthy, real-food recipes the whole family can enjoy.  I get distracted.  Online recipes are more attractive to me than Sam Elliot.  Seriously.  (Don’t judge…I’d follow that voice anywhere!)  If only …

Why No Wheat?

I had the “wheat-free” conversation with two friends recently, which prompted me to write this post.  Over the course of the last year and a half whenever I tell someone that I try to follow the Paleo lifestyle for eating, they always ask why I don’t eat grains.  I suppose sugar is a no-brainer for …

Where Did I Go Wrong??

That’s a rhetorical question, of course. I know exactly where I went wrong.  No need to rub it in. It all started a little over a week ago when Victoria popped a piece of Juicy Fruit gum in her mouth.  Wow…Juicy Fruit.  I used to LOVE that gum when I was little.  My immediate reaction, …

The Minimum

While driving to work a while ago I noticed a new billboard.  It has a smiling man on it with five simple words: “Do the minimum.  (I do.)”  Way to instill confidence, SafeAuto.  I can see how “good neighbors” and “good hands” would be a turn-off.  Your marketing reps must be proud. Despite that this …
