Halloween Party: Girl Scout Style

Being a Girl Scout Leader has challenged me in so many ways. Not really a bad thing. Actually a good thing. These girls keep me excited for Fridays, and on my toes. This Friday was no different! For those who don’t know, Halloween is also Founder’s Day. Juilette Gordon Low was born on Halloween, so…

School Birthdays: Go Big or Go Home.

Hyperdiva’s Birthday in on Sunday. Her dad is taking her to disneyland for her gift from him. It’s been tight around here with graduation looming, and making sure everything is paid for.

Introducting…….Saturday Sabbath Meal

As change comes and goes into my life, I embrace them, because that’s all you can do, right? One thing I really have been working on was the family’s eating habits. I’ve really been reading the labels on the food products that come into the house, and if I can make it from scratch, that’s…
