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…

I have a little trick I use to keep my holidays debt-free. I set up my own Christmas-club account and save all year 'round.

4th of July Roundup

4th of July Roundup

I’m about to do my very first holiday round up post.  I rarely do much for the more minor holidays in life.  Not sure if I’m just too busy, or if it just wasn’t a “thing” in our family, but Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, 4th of July don’t really get a lot of attention […] Read more…
