Wordless Wednesday – Girl with the Dragon Tattoo with LINKY #ww #wordlesswednesday

Girl with the dragon tattoo

She is usually all girl. Totally feminine. Pinks. Purples. Hair bows. Makeup. Tutus. Anything girly, my daughter wants it. Today, she wanted a dragon tattoo. She was proud and said, “I look tough. Like a boy.” I just smiled. She didn’t look so tough when I took this shot right after she fell asleep. For more Wordless Wednesday places to link up, please visit:    

BodyLogicMD – Biodentical Hormone Therapy

BodyLogicMD Adrenal Fatigue in Women

Years ago, I remember watching comedy spoofs. I distinctly remember some satire based on menopausal women. The woman going through menopause was always sweating profusely and having insane hot flashes among other things. I used to laugh at this. Mostly because it seemed so far out of the realm of possibility and I just knew that it would ‘never happen to me.’ Honestly, it hasn’t happened to me yet but as the big 4-0 looms over the horizon this year, {Read More}

However, after being hit by one of the hottest summers followed by the ice and snow storms this past winter, Atlanta homeowners are in for an unwelcome surprise.

Dyson Air Multiplier™ Review

Dyson Air Multiplier Fan

I have written before about how my husband and I are early adopters when it comes to technology. We love anything to do with technology and love to buy things when they first come out on the market. We cannot help it. We are kind of like kids in a candy store in that aspect. My husband is drawn to Sears and Best Buy like a moth to a flame. While I tend to avoid Best Buy (I am a {Read More}

The Closer: The Complete Sixth Season on DVD

The Closer Season Six

I am huge fan of The Closer. In fact, I have never missed an episode. I have watched many episodes twice. I love the character that Kyra Sedgewick plays and I especially love seeing a strong, female lead on television who is not depicted in a negative light. Kyra brings a lot to the role and really plays her character, Deputy Chief Brenda Lee Johnson of the LAPD as strong yet still very feminine. Kyra’s character reminds me of other {Read More}

Living in a Technology Family

We are definitely a technology family. We cannot function without the many technological things that reside in our house. Televisions. Cellphones. Computers. Appliances. Gaming systems. And much more. If I had to go around and count all of the things that I consider high tech items in my house, I don’t think that I could do it. It would take forever and my definition of what I consider high tech might change on a day to day basis. It always {Read More}

Rayovac Sportsman Xtreme™ 4W LED 3C Flashlight

I never really realized how hard it was to be a parent until I had children. I am guessing that it is like that for most people. My father worked three jobs a lot of the time while I was growing up. But I always remember him being there. He coached my sports teams or he was at my games. He helped with homework. He made dinner. He did a lot. My dad is a wonderful father. He has worked {Read More}
