I was doing my normal and checking my email when I got a email from Zillow about what Santa's house actually looks like. Check out the link here for Zillows preview of what Santa's property actually looks like here .
It's that magical time of year when even the most scared bakers in the world take to their kitchens to start their holiday baking. Some people have power lists of what they bake every year and some make brand new lists off of Pinterest's to make some new spectacular kinds of cookies. I admit fall in the middle and do a bit of both. But I am a baker who tries to make new and different things all year round. Since I have a family full of taste testers who don't mind trying my baked goods I am all set because they will always be very blunt and honest with me. But seriously I learned long ago a very important lesson from my Grams about this time of year. This time of year brings out the good and bad in people. So always have a treat in the house to share! By doing this you could solidify the good day they are having and make it great or a sweet treat and a concerned listening ear can make someone's horrible day a better one. For the people who say baking is s
How The NORAD Santa Tracker Got Its Start Okay guys and girls first for those who really know me they know that I am a compulsive obsessive person when it comes to the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. I am also in love with a good story as much as the next person. So last year when I stumbled upon this story about how NORAD started tracking Santa I had a good chuckle. Then to my surprise I was looking at pins on Pinterest tonight and behold the story of the Santa Tracker reappeared in my thread so I figured it was fate I had to share the story with the world. The whole NORAD tracking Santa started because of a typo in the paper. Here is a picture of the ad that Sears Roebuck and Co. posted over 60 years ago. They didn't realize it but that phone number was not to the Santa they had in place but to the Continental Air Defense Center (Now NORAD). How would you have felt as someone who works at a military installation getting a call on the red phone hearing
I will admit things have been a little more than crazy for us this past year. An even now I am in a transition phase in my current full time job. I am just happy I do have a full time job still but I am going through a transition from manager to just a regular employee again. Why you may ask? Well its not a difficult thing my position was done away with. Funny thing is I am not even mad or upset in the slightest. You would think I should be but I'm not. I think its because we had a feeling it was coming so I started free lancing and opening up my resale business again. ( shameless plug here ) But that is neither here nor there. When I was growing up one of the things that made living in New Jersey bearable was my Grandparents. I still get choked up because my Grandfather taught be how to play pool, gamble, fish and he also gave me my first shot.... He was a amazing man. When my mom got into one of her moods he would take me to the water. He knew that I couldn't be far f
I will admit I have a few pet peeves. However one that gets me is when people do not move over for emergency vehicles. Normally if your not blaring your radio you will hear the fire trucks or ambulance before you see them. Then once you know you need to get over and stop let the people in the other lane in. Don't be a douche. This one car would not let me over so the car in front of him thankfully noticed slowed down so I could speed up and get over. Especially today I discovered they went to the local highschool. So rant over thank you all for the ear.
HA HA just kidding.....well not really! Anyway, How are you all doing and I apologize for the lack of writing but after our trip to see and say goodbye to my sister-in-law I have been struck with this cold/flu bug. Plus on top of that its been making its way through the house. BAH. For me though it triggered one of my monthly migraines and lets just say my hubby is a superstar because it was not a pretty sight. The reason for this post though is because I think we need a reminder of some basic how not to get people sick basics.....honestly you would not think that people need to be reminded of this but nope they do.... Wash your hands...with soap and warm or hot water!!!! Also carry a bottle of hand sanitizer with you. If you hate the nasty smelling regular one go to Bath and Bodyworks and pick up a scented type. If you can't wash your hands at least attempt to not be patient zero and attempt to stop the sickness. Now i know its not easy to take off of work. Hey I wor
I know some ladies might get a little upset at me however it has to be said. Seriously ladies leggings stretch and I do not think the world wants to see your g-string up your butt crack when it stretches is not sexy or alluring, Its really just gross and disgusting. Lets see this chart i found on Pinterests. Also besides leggings a few other leg coverings that should not be worn without something covering your buttocks. Stocking or tights....I know that people are like but I wear them with dresses. That's fine as long as your leggings or tights are covering to your mid-thigh. Spandex that shows your underwear or if you are like the few people who go commando under the spandex we don't want to see things that's are....NO. Again there is nothing sexy or alluring about seeing stuff that should be kept under wraps. Now I bet you are wondering why I mentioned this. As you know I have a page going Kansas or bust 2016. Well we are visiting my sister-in-law and on
