A Little Help for Your New Year's Resolutions

Happy New Year’s 2016

If there is anything I struggle with in my life, it’s dealing with my various habits.  I struggle with both breaking bad habits and creating good ones.  I have even done some research trying to find a magical solution. It seems to be a pretty widespread issue.  I read somewhere that something like 90% of […] Read more…

My Son's Eagle Project was featured as the Day Four - A Scout is Friendly for the 12 Days of Scouting Christmas.

The Twelve Days of Scouting Christmas

OK, this is just a quick one today.  I am up to my ears in Christmas “busyness” to the point where I can’t even sleep for thinking of all the gifts I need to wrap (and still buy!) and cards I need to send.  But I did want to slip this one in.  I know […] Read more…

Utah Blogger Holiday Round Up

If you’ve been around here for a while, you might have noticed that I am about the least crafty, least cook-y female on the planet.  Actually, I used to be pretty crafty, but that was prior to discovering the Interwebs.  These days, digital scrapbooking is about as crafty as I’m likely to get.  And I […] Read more…

Saying goodbye to our dog Joe

Goodbye to our Dog Joe

I’ve written about our Saint Bernard Joe before – his “almost” brush with fame when he was auditioned for a movie.  Well sadly, we lost him last week.  It’s always sad to lose a pet – a dog or a cat has such a short lifespan compared with ours, and yet they become such an […] Read more…

Holiday Good Deeds for Free

The holidays are a perfect time to do some good deeds. Money is always tight this time of year, so I’m going to share some good deeds you can do for free (or almost free). Volunteer I’m kind of a volunteer junkie. Between Scouts and church, and stuff through work, I generally do several hundred […] Read more…

The Real Spirit of the Holidays

I’ll be honest, while I like a good deal as much as the next gal, the whole “Black Friday” craziness makes me faintly sick to my stomach.  So, here’s a little antidote to all the overshopping madness.  I hope it gets your holiday season off to a great start!  Here’s an adorable Christmas puppy just […] Read more…

Fun and Funky Holiday Nail Designs

I don’t know why I haven’t thought to share this before – if you know me in real life, I am all about the fancy nail designs.  I am fortunate to have ridiculously strong nails that just grow like mad, so I figure I owe it to woman-kind to get some manner of enjoyment out […] Read more…

Earning an Eagle Scout rank isn't always easy, but we survived it and we are SO proud.

My Son, the Eagle Scout

If you remember this post from over the summer – My son the almost-Eagle Scout, you’ll know that I was really biting my nails over whether or not my son would complete his path to Eagle.  I’m happy to report that he finally got with the program and earned his Eagle rank. I was very pleased […] Read more…

This is a collection of must-have items for people who really love their pets.

Genius Products – For DOGS

A while back I did a post about Genius Products I’ve found for cats.  Well, my conscience has been bothering me a bit since I also am a dog lover, and there are tons of great products out there for dogs as well.  So, when Nina from Dogs by Nina asked me if she could guest […] Read more…

6 things you don't want to do on a Cruise, unless you want to be the MOST disliked passenger on the ship!

6 Things NOT to Do on a Cruise

  We’ve been on several cruises now and usually we meet terrific people onboard the ships.  However, there are a few people who are memorable for all the wrong reasons.  So, just for giggles, I came up with a few ideas for rules I’d love to post on a ship for things NOT to do […] Read more…

Insane Waffle Iron Recipes

OK, I don’t often post items about cooking, but I have long been amazed at some of the uses people come up with to use their waffle iron and/or panini presses to make all sorts of amazing foods you would never have thought of using them for. Once you stop viewing your waffle iron or […] Read more…

Women Helping Women through Kiva.org @AdriansCrazyLif Such a simple way to help women in disadvantaged countries.

Women helping Women with Kiva.org

I’ve been reading a book this week.  It’s called Half the Sky and it’s about the empowerment of women.  Actually, about 80% of the book is about the pretty horrible suffering women endure in the various corners of the world.  But the rest of it is about successful efforts many of the people of the […] Read more…

Confessions of A Nerdy Blogger @AdriansCrazyLif Yes, I like nerdy/geeky stuff - books, movies, TV shows, etc. Why not? It's fun!

Confessions of a Nerdy Blogger

I think this is something a lot of people don’t know about me – I am a huge nerd!  This isn’t a recent thing, I’ve been a nerd (or a geek – I’m never clear on the difference between the two) my whole life.  My Mom raised me with a steady diet of nightly Star […] Read more…
