Review: Eureka Ultimate Clean Pet Vacuum Cleaner

Welcoming in the New Year means it’s time to get our home organized after a busy holiday season. That starts with a thorough house cleaning.

Trick or Treat Fun on the Beach!

We love going the week before Halloween when decorations are up and the girls can “dress up” in their […]

Our Grain-Free Journey–for Ourselves AND Our Dogs

Rachael Ray Nutrish has sponsored this post, but all opinions are my own. John and I have been on a low carb diet for many years, working hard to avoid grains as much as possible in our meals. We feel better, our clothes fit better, and I think we have more energy when we stay […]
