Our youngest little girl in the family just turned 6 months old! Crazy how fast these kids grow up. It feels like just yesterday, she was coming home from the hospital. She is growing so fast, it's hard to keep up. She loves crawling and rolling all around the room. And now, she even sits up on her own (even though mom tries to keep her from doing so).Read More
It's been a very rainy week here in the Chicago area, and it got me thinking...rainy days always get me down. I'm a girl from sunny Southern California...we don't get much water falling from the sky, and I really don't mind. (Bedsides the drought part, we really need to figure that out.)
Anyway, I've been spending time in Chicago recently and it's been super rainy. "Where's the sunshine?!" But I always have to remind myself, "we're not in Kansas (CA) anymore!"
So, what do you do when a rainy day is getting you down?
You go on a fun and creative Rainy Day Date!!
Remember Blockbuster? Hollywood Video? Movie Gallery?
Friday nights were family movie nights at our house, so we would run to the rental store, sort through multiple options of VHS tapes to find the one we wanted and then we paid $4.99 for a 3-night rental on a New Release Movie. Obviously those days are long gone and now we have awesome subscription services like Netflix, Amazon Video (Prime and Firestick), Hulu, etc. But if you want new release physical DVD's or Blue-Ray Discs, you head to REDBOX!
And for a brand new DVD release, you're now only paying $1.50 a night! Can't get much cheaper than that!
Oh wait...Yes you can!!Read More
Do your headlights date your car? They're dingy and dirty-looking and make your car look older than it is? You wash them and they start to look new again, only to dry and go back to foggy? Ours did! And we tried all the D.I.Y. remedies...to no avail.
- Dish Soap- Check...didn't work.
- Scrubbing with a toothbrush...Nada!
- Washing the car...duh, we tried this, but...back to foggy!
- Toothpaste as a cleaner...Ok, with search results and the help of Pinterest, we found some people use toothpaste. Weird, we know, but of course we tried! And sadly, STILL nothing! Maybe a bit cleaner, but that didn't help with the cloudy or fogginess.
Local service stations wanted to charge $100 to do "headlight restoration" for us...and we came close to just caving in and paying it.Read More

Ever see 2 gas stations just down the street from each other (or sometimes right across from each other) and one is $.20 more per gallon than the other? Or you go on a road trip and you paid $.30 more per gallon than the gas station just 2 exits further?

We love personalized gifts! Especially when it involves photos. It's the gift that makes the parents cry on Christmas morning. The gift that keeps all our best photo memories out of storage boxes and off our computers. The gift that says, "I made this gift special just for you!"
And that's why we love Shutterfly!Read More
