Remember that time I said I wasn't going to work at my second job anymore? Well, that only lasted not even a semester, whoops! I tried my best not to pick up shifts during the fall semester last year in 2018. I managed to make it to November, but they needed help and I felt … Continue reading Every Day I’m Hustlin’

With our new scooters, I've been riding pretty much anywhere I can and it is so nice not to watch my gas tank sink to empty so often … Continue reading Scootering Around Town

As I've focused more on my health the past two years, I've gotten a lot under control. I feel so much better, but a few things were still out of place. Over … Continue reading It’s a New Day, It’s a New Lifestyle
There's just something wonderful about when it gets just warm enough to start using the grill again. We love to have hamburgers and hot dogs all spring, summer, and fall, but I'm really digging the flavor of homemade grilled chicken. Unfortunately, our grill of over a decade finally rusted from the inside out last fall … Continue reading Tis the Season for Grilling!
