It’s More Than Recliners, Ladies! La-Z-Boy Opening New Locations in Metro Detroit!

Chaise from LaZBoy

Disclosure: I am partnering with La-Z-Boy on coverage of their new locations and will be provided with some review items for a future post. All opinions are 100% my own and are not influenced in any way. I'm definitely a "support local" kind of shopper. When I moved to Michigan 13 years ago and learned that the La-Z-Boy headquarters is located here I didn't think much of it other than, "how cool is that!?" I wasn't really ever in the market … [Read more...]

An Interview with Teri Hatcher, Dottie in Disney’s Planes #DisneyPlanesEvent

Teri Hatcher as Dottie

When I receive the agenda for my trip to LA back in June one of the many things I was thrilled to see was a sit down interview with TERI HATCHER! Teri voices the role of Dottie in the Planes movie and I have been a fan of Teri Hatcher for a very long time! When it was time for the interview we did find out that Teri unfortunately had come down sick with a terrible sinus infection so she was unable to sit down with us...in person. Teri, feeling … [Read more...]

Tuesday’s Tastes on Second Base – A Wrap Up of Our Journey

I just looked up the last post I did for Tuesday's Tastes. It was in May and we were at 15 months of nursing! Reading that post brought tears to my eyes. Addy will be 18 months old soon and I have admitted that I had moments when I was ready for her to wean, however, I wouldn't make that choice for her. I wanted HER to be ready and her to decide when our journey was complete. Since I last wrote about our journey, she's really only nursed a few … [Read more...]

Who Left the Lights On? The Blame Game: A Lighting Debate Resolved

Lighting Infographic

Most of us have been on both sides of the "Who Left the Lights On" question. I know, in our home, the finger pointing usually ramps up right around the time the electric bill shows up, and the blame game certainly intensifies when the energy bill starts to spike.  According to a U.S. consumer household lighting behavior study conducted on behalf of lighting control systems developer Lutron Electronics, leaving the lights on in empty rooms is the … [Read more...]

Three Ways We Use Christmas Lights Year Round

Christmas Lights as Decor

I am a huge fan of Christmas and the fun decor that comes with it. In fact, I love Christmas lights so much that I am always finding ways to use them outside of the holiday season. We have actually changed all of our holiday lighting to LED lights, which is another reason I am determined to use them for more than just Christmas. The investment doesn't seem right if the lights sit in a box for 11 months out of the year! My Top Three Ways to … [Read more...]

Manchester with the Kids: Keeping it Stress Free and Fun (Guest Post)

Traveling anywhere with the kids can be a hassle if you’re not prepared, especially when you have kids of various ages that you need to keep entertained. We all know how difficult it is to find activities that all will enjoy so the trick is to incorporate activities that each age group will enjoy, making them more likely to accept the trips that don’t appeal to them. While heading abroad brings its own issues, traveling to a city in the UK can … [Read more...]
