Finding the chic in everyday life

I love eating, cooking, crafting, zumbaing, ice skating, and lots of other randomness.

First generation organic.

Since December 2008, I've lost 15 lbs and I hope to continue my healthy habits of nutritious eating + frequent, fun exercising.

Oh She Glows

Love your blog!!
Your dog is out of this world adorable!


What a nice, thought-provoking post. I feel the same way too. Christmas IS suddenly looming, but I really want to enjoy the process this year. Hopefully it won't be needed, but if I have to want to give in-progress gifts so that I don't have to rush through the making of them. There's always January for tying up loose ends!


The square is very pretty... I too love to crochet and love Real Simple... thanks for reminding me of the gratitude article... that was a good one...

Was just doing a general self- maintenance check on line and came across your comments regarding the RS Gratitude issue. So glad it struck a chord with you...Working on getting my blog together now (aren't we all...) and hope to share some more to inspire us all - if not myself alone! Keep up the quest!

So I just purchased the same crocheting book and am trying the same willow pattern- I can't get the middle part (the foundation ring + first few rows) to lay flat! I think it might have something to do with the size of my crochet hook...what size do you use? Any tips? I love that pattern!

Learning is a kind of wealth. Through your blog I receive some useful knowledge. Thank you for your kind sharing. And welcome to pur website .

There is not much to choose between men.but some have more strength of character, or more opportunity, and so in one direction or another give their instincts freer play, but potentially they are the same.

You can find inexpensive security systems and other systems that can be very expensive. Again, it all depends on your needs.
