Chicken Burgers!!!

This is probably one of our go-to recipes that we kind of developed from another recipe. It’s the Fourth of July (2018) and it was different than any other one since I’ve been with my husband.  This is HIS first year not in RETAIL!!!  His position now has him doing different things and does not require him to be in the store, throwing stock!  So, he was home by 130 and we got to spend the afternoon AND evening together.  Normally, that is NOT the case. A few years back, I found this recipe for spinach parmesan chicken meatballs on Pinterest. […]

Some Helpful Tips When You Know Someone Going Through Infant Loss

We are 10 months and 2 days since we experienced the single worst thing that’s ever happened to us. Never in a million years did I ever think we would be in the group of parents that have gone through this.  No one ever really does, I guess.  But especially when you have a near perfect pregnancy, you REALLY don’t expect it. I wanted to write a little bit of what helped (and frankly what didn’t) in the first few hours, days, and weeks of the loss of our son, Aaron. (These are MY own experiences, everyone is different.  So […]

July 2018 Tupperware Opportunity Info

July 2018 Tupperware Opportunity. So as I’ve mentioned in a previous post that I am a Tupperware Consultant.  I am not as active as I was in the first 2.5 years (only because of my lifestyle getting busier and starting up my Virtual Assistant Veronica business), but I still believe in the product and when the deals are good, it’s hard to pass up sharing it. So this post is about the Tupperware Opportunity.  How to become a Tupperware Consultant.  And what’s all in it for YOU, if you decide to take the plunge. At the beginning of every sales month […]

Saturday Catch-up

  Well hello all!  It’s been quite a while since my last post.  (Not a surprise, you could probably see that at the top of many-a-post of mine). Anyhoo! Current situation…Full belly (pancakes and bacon with the hub and kid), sitting on the couch with the natural light coming the window, light breeze from the fan, and my feet soaking in epsom salt and a fancy shower gel my mother-in-law got me for Christmas. Yes, you read that right, I am SOAKING MY FEET IN AS HOT AS I COULD MAKE IT WATER!!! And after my 30 minutes are up, […]

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…sort of…

This is truly my favorite time of the year.  As soon I feel that first break in the weather (which isn’t much of a break, but we Floridians can sense it). As soon as “Fall” hits here in Florida, it just makes me instantly happy. Thanksgiving…my sister’s family, our family, and whatever friends want to gather at my in-laws’ house and we enough a fairly relaxed late morning-early evening of visiting and EATING!!!! Then it begins, we can finally start decorating for Christmas!!! (I would start in September if you ask me). And even though I’ve been listening to Christmas […]

A few more firsts this week

Well…this concludes another week of firsts for me. Sunday was my first in-home Tupperware party.  And not only that, but I had two, one at 11am and one at 2pm.  I survived, whew! This was also my first week back to work.  I worked Monday-Friday during the hours that Ayden was in school. My first encounter with a customer (that as I walked up that first day I thought how I wasn’t ready to see a couple customers).  And he was one of those that I wasn’t ready to see.  But he came looking for me.  I was so glad […]

The 12 Posts of Christmas #9: Christmas Baking

And just like that…it’s over.  All of that planning and prepping…is over. Pretend like you’re reading this on Christmas Eve, because that’s when I intended on posting it.  Why I thought I would be posting on the Eve, I have not a clue. I made two new recipes this year.  I made gingerbread cookies (sorry, I guess I didn’t take a picture of them).  They taste good, but are a pain in the you-know-wutt to cut (do you see what I did there?  no?  ok…nevermind).  The dough is really tacky, even after sitting in the fridge for more than 24 […]

The 12 Posts of Christmas #7: Candy Cane Ornament Kid Craft

How is it December 22 already?  Here I was, in disbelief of it being 2 1/2 weeks until Christmas, and now it’s only 3 days away? Now don’t be confused.  Amanda at From J to Z usually posts first, but I’m switching it up! I don’t do many kid crafts with little A, so I decided that I am going to try to be better at that.  These little ornaments would kill a few birds with one stone: Craft, gift, and giving Ayden some much needed mommy attention while I am so busy with getting the house and Christmas stuff […]

The 12 Posts of Christmas #6: Handmade Christmas Ornaments

Yes, I’m late…story of my life.  I’ve been so busy with trying to get Christmas stuff done and trying not to let the house be mistaken for a landfill.  I SO thought I was ahead of the game seeing as I did this craft LAST FRIDAY!!!  And here I sit again, after 9PM on Friday, writing this.  Please do not ask me where last week went, because I can honestly say I do not know.  Just trying to keep up with dishes, laundry and my 3 year-old…there isn’t much time for more.  Throw in trying to get ready for Christmas, […]

The 12 Posts of Christmas #4

Welcome back to the Christmas collaboration From J to Z and I find ourselves in.  Here’s the 4th Post of Christmas   Here we are, 13 days away from Christmas Day!!!  So that means I only have 12 days until I need to have everything done (since we celebrate with the big family on the Eve).  And finally today…TODAY, I started my Christmas crafts.  One of those crafts was this terracotta pot candy jar that has been stalking me on Pinterest.  Maybe it’s the other way around…moving on! Well, I finally decided to get the stuff and actually make it.  […]
