Crazy Cups Coffee Flavor of The Month: Chocolate Covered Almonds


I love that with Crazy Cups Coffee I can have dessert every since morning, without feeling guilty about it. Every dessert flavor you can think of, you will find as a coffee flavor, and if it's not been made yet, they are certainly working on it. I've shared my supply of Crazy Cups with family, friends, and coworkers, and everyone everyone seems to have the same response: 

"This is my favorite coffee company, EVER!"

Flash Back Friday: Home Update Progress

Original Realtor photo

We purchased our home in August of 2013 and it was already a cute little house, however, we really wanted to do some updates to it just to make it our own. In addition, the kitchen and the bathroom really needed updating. Despite the fact that our home will be completely paid off in three years, it will probably be in a constant state of remodeling for the next 5-10. Between a complete basement remodel (My office, yay!), new siding, windows, and shutters, and hardwood floors and new paint through out the house, it will be a long haul, but a rewarding one.


Total Trivia



I've been told that I'm a walking encyclopedia of useless knowledge. I love trivia. Those are my favorite games to play, and we have an entire closet of trivia games, most of them being music trivia. My love for trivia is so bad, that my family and friends refuse to play with me because, once again, I'm a walking encyclopedia of useless knowledge. 

So imagine my joy when I was scrolling through Facebook one day and discovered an ad for an app called Total Trivia. It's a trivia game where you compete with others to win prizes and discounts on some rather excellent merchandise. We are talking things in the hundreds, even thousands, of dollars. Obviously I downloaded it!

Namaste: Food For Everyone + GIVEAWAY!

Namaste Gluten Free

With so many people who have food allergies and restrictions, it's surprising how hard it is to find food that fits every diet. Whether you are Dairy or Gluten free, vegan, or just want organic foods, depending on how large your city is, the selection could be very small or completely no existent. I happen to live in a town with a small selection of healthier alternative foods. 

Namaste lives up to their motto of: Food For Everyone, by making a line of products that are organic, gluten, dairy, and nut free. We don't currently have any dietary restriction in our family, but I do like to eat healthy and encourage my family to do so whenever possible.

Non-Candy Easter Gifts Your Little One Will Love


No matter if you are a parent, grandparent, godparent, aunt, uncle, or family friend, sometimes you want to give a nice Easter gift that isn't candy or sugar filled desserts and drinks. I'm one of those parents. My children get enough sweets from their grandparents for Easter, so we focus more on other things in their Easter baskets each year. My favorite thing to give all year is books. So, of course I would give books for Easter, too! Add special personalization to those books, and you have a lifelong keepsake.

Bibliophile: A person who collects or has a great love of book.

I can honestly say that I am 100% a bibliophile. I've always had a great love for books and a decent size library, but in the last 4 years, my library has grown so much that we actually have to build an addition onto our house to make room for more books. That right there is real dedication! So naturally, you can picture my excitement opening subscription boxes that I know will have books in them.
