The long awaited annual Ridgebacks & Friends yardsale is over and I’m happy to say we sold about 95% of the items that were donated and raised almost $3,000 for the Ridgies! At the end, we had about 15 boxes (mostly clothes even though we sold A TON) that went to Goodwill and non denotable … Continue reading LA Online Sale Roundup
I want to take a minute and discuss something that is very odd, well I guess not that odd for a blog about nothing… eyebrow waxing. Some woman are blessed with perfectly shaped brows that never need waxing. I am not one of those woman. Even from a young age I was “blessed” with very … Continue reading Rainy Day Shenanigans At The Salon
On a personal side note, before I write about what I was going to write about today, if anyone has any tips for getting rid of laryngitis please let me know. My voice went totally out last night and I’m freaking out about it not being healed before the Ridgebacks & Friends San Diego Yardsale … Continue reading My Lightbulb Moment, Literally.
This sounds like the start of an awful joke I know. For all of the light hearted jabs I make about my neighbors, I live in an awesome neighborhood and have the best neighbors on my right/south side ever. They are couple in their 60s who have been married for 30+ years with no kids. … Continue reading Two planners needed a fence
I want to say first and foremost, I’m not a decor money saving guru. My home projects typically run on budget because I'm a planner by nature but I do not think of myself as someone that gets screaming deals.

I know all the weird sounds, creeks, I can … Continue reading The 10 Year Homeowner Itch
I feel like I’m whenever I start a blog post, I end up apologizing for not blogging for a while. My catch-22 is I feel like I shouldn’t blog unless I have something interesting and of value to add, and the past few months, I haven’t felt that. In short, here is an explanation of … Continue reading Super fun topic, death of an estranged family member
Yes I've been away with no good excuses but I promise I have a lot of content coming up. Teaser post... who wants to guess my project for tomorrow? This is 3.5 yards of 54" fabric to be applied up the bolt. Any guesses?
Back in December my the sale on my childhood home closed. It was also my father's childhood home and so needless to say it was quite an emotional experience for me and for him as well. Anyone who has gone through this knows that you obviously want to keep some tangible items from the house. … Continue reading Mema’s Tulips
Today's post was spawned by this picture from my Facebook "On This Day" memories from 2015. This is me standing on top of a giant pile of garbage. That year I participated in the City of Burbank's Master Recycling Program. It was a neat program where you were educated and learned about different ways of recycling … Continue reading Feeling Kind of Trashy
