Five Products I Always Buy From Target

I am a Target fanatic. Every Friday I go through the Starbucks drive thru and then head to Target with my kids. I wish my local Target had a Starbucks because it would save me a stop.

My Kid-Approved, Healthy Bolognese Recipe

A healthy recipe that is easy, kid-friendly and inexpensive to make

I wanted a beautiful and glamorous chandelier for my master bedroom.  I checked a few stores, but found that they were $200+ and I wasn’t even all that crazy about them.  One day I was surfing Craigslist and found a local person selling an old chandelier for $10.  I purchased the chandelier and gave it a “glam makeover” (with my hubby’s help of course).
