The past few weeks our weekend have been a mix of being at the local ski hill watching the kids fall in love with skiing, being outside here at home and snuggling on the couch reading or watching movies on Netflix. Where the only form of “Netflix & Chill” is the very literal version, of actually chilling, on the couch, pooped from…

This Dyson Vacuum Sucks! ;)


Summertime: days are longer, sun is warmer, clothes are lighter, floors are dirtier…..ugh what? Yes, it’s a sad fact that my house is often found a little less clean in the summer months.

My Fave New Kitchen Tool: The Veggetti


Ok, let’s just address the elephant in the title of this post…..I realize that Veggetti sounds like something that might be associated with vagina, I don’t know what it is about the word Veggetti but whenever I say it or talk about it with other people, both me and them giggle and our minds are in the gutter.
