Mother’s Day

  Mother’s Day is fast approaching and that means it’s time to find the perfect gift to show mom how much we care. Unfortunately, this task is no easy feat and we often end up resorting to the time-honored homemade cards or chore booklets. While most moms will appreciate any gift and enjoy the thought […]

Your Halloween costume persona needs teeth –fangs, broken down teeth, or ’missing’ teeth. If you’ve rented a costume they may supply the extras to do this.

April Fools

by Kristi L “Surely you jest” is the phrase of the month…  Some may say that April Fool’s Day is for the foolish or childish.  This last year in entertainment and the media, some may say we have been living a Groundhog day of April Fool’s Days. Where and when did this day for the […]


By Kristi L. “March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.” “April showers, bring May flowers.”  With our ever changing weather patterns this year certainly makes these sayings debatable. However… In March we have a lot going on: March break for the kids, St. Patrick’s Day for the big kid, First […]

Valentine’s Day 2017

  Valentine’s Day is back! Are you ready? Do you have plans? Well if you are like most of us (men that is) the answer is no. So, here’s a last minute check list to help organize and avoid the dog house.  Significant other  Have they dropped hints about the Day?  Stuff […]
