I want it all…right now!

It's not our fault. I blame the microwave epidemic.  The microwave oven shined its face upon our homes and forever changed kitchens, college dorm rooms, office lunch spaces and the trajectory of popcorn. I believe that the microwave unknowingly cultivated an "we want it right now" attitude that has been impossible to shake. What came… Continue reading I want it all…right now!

The FITting room: Zyia Active Edition

Hello and Happy Tuesday friends.

I want to move you off of the wheel and away from the maddening maze… Continue reading Foolish Foods

Well-Rounded

This wasn't exactly an ideal hallmark for an impressionable female teenager. "Well - Rounded" really? The picture above would sure speak to a well rounded head of hairsprayed hair that's for  certain.  But like hairstyles, trends change. Let's remember that I was a prodigy of the 70's, when hippie chic "skinny" girls graced the Copper Tone… Continue reading Well-Rounded

SUPERBOWL

Football fanatics beware...SUPERBOWL 53 is near. This is always my favorite instant replay time of the year when I softly remind Mr. Chicken Fry that he is OLDER than the Super Bowl.  An ANNUAL sweet little fun fact that I sarcastically deliever with a whisper. I knowingly married a man who was actually alive on the… Continue reading SUPERBOWL
