My 2017 Version of My Favorite Things

Dave’s Coffee Cake! Seriously, it is incredible. I have tried a couple different kinds of theirs but my favorite is Cinnamon Supreme. The first time I tried it was @ the annual Women’s Show in St Charles in February. They had a booth where you can sample it and that is when I got hooked. …

Hello 2017

I am happy to see the New Year is upon us and excited with whats to come. I love change and hoping for something new. New hair color, new home or any new experiences. But unlike most I have noticed, 2016 was not a bad year for me. I have a great job, I’m comfortable …

The 2016 Version of my Favorite Things …..

  1.  McDonald’s Oatmeal – I am liking it right now because it’s a better alternative to hot cakes or McMuffins. It taste great, has a little fresh fruit in it and the calories aren’t out of control. The ingredients are Oatmeal- Whole grain rolled oats, brown sugar, food starch-modified, salt, natural maple flavor with …

The Tale of Two Cities

I know I’ve done a couple of these but I promise this is my final review of moving back to Missouri since I’ve been here over a year. Still I do not regret it.   Food – better in Savannah and more variety. Hands down. With the exception of pizza and Italian food. Pizza in …

Oh my Posh!

  Perfectly Posh is my new Direct Sales business. And hopefully the last. As you all know I have an addiction (or illness) to signing up with Direct Sales companies.  I have written a post about this before on here called the Ultimate Salesman in July of 2012 but just to mention I have sold; Avon, …

6 months in….

      6 months in…. I have survived 6 months back in Missouri. And some of my southern friends didn’t think I would last this long <Dawn!>. I knew I would. I have finally gotten settled with a job and a place to live. Not all the way unpacked, but settled. I moved into a …

The Midwest vs the South

​Food is good here but better (and more fattening) in the South. At least from what I can tell so far. I will say the BBQ and pizza are better in StL and they have Sun Drop, toasted ravioli, frozen custard, provel cheese and are home of the Gooey Butter Cake. But the South wins …

Birchbox 

   So I just subscribed to Birchbox.  It’s a sampling company. You can also order full-size items from them. I just got my first package in the mail! And I think I’m going to love this. The actual box that it came in was a lot smaller than I thought it would be but the samples they chose …

My Current Interest

I hear I’m a hedonist

Yep I never knew what a hedonist was before but I have been informed from the girls at work that I am one. I don’t remember ever hearing the actual word before. The name comes from the Greek word for “delight”. Apparently it’s not really something to brag about. But I can’t help it. I’m …

Younique

I just got started with Younique, a direct sales company that specializes in premium-quality cosmetics .  The company has only been around since 2012 and I am in awe!  This stuff is amazing.  Younique is the  first direct-sales company to market and sell almost exclusively through the use of social media. Their pioneered Younique Virtual …

My flight to the Middle East

I just found an old journal that I had started to keep from back in 2009.  It’s kind of funny looking back at it now. A couple of pages from my journal reads………………….. Thursday March 12, 2009   @ 1:45 PM  Okay it’s official,  I am now on vacation.  I’m sitting in JFK Airport with …

Genealogy

I would love to track my father’s ancestery. But what do you do when all the parties involved are deceased? How do you know if the information you’re tracking is accurate if they have very common names? My father was born in 1918 and his sister was older. Both have passed and obviously their parents …

Living in the Southeast

Are you living in the part of the country you want to? If it were up to me and money wasn’t an issue then I would live in a different state. I love the Northeast, I love Texas (doesn’t everyone?) and I love St Louis. I even dream of how nice the Northwest would be. …

My Little Relocation in 2014

I moved again. Thankfully it wasn’t too big of an adjustment. I moved to a different apartment but in the same complex. My lease was up and if I stayed where I was then my rent was going up. But I had an option to move to a smaller apartment for less rent. So obviously …

Another Year Comes to an End

  As 2013 comes to a close, I have begun to reflect over all that has occurred. A lot of changes and growth happened this year. I moved, changed jobs, lost weight, gained weight and went on a big vacation. You never know what’s to come with me. I like changes and if it were …

2013’s list of my 10 favorite things

I did a post over a year ago titled 10 of my favorite things. Well this post is going to list my current passions. Maybe I’ll do like Oprah and have a list for each year. Too bad I don’t have anything to give away. Maybe people would read my blog if I did. I …

Can you die from a toothache???

I wrote this post almost 3 months ago but never published. I’m not exactly sure how this post will turn out because I am under the influence of pain medication at this time. I have been having a time with my teeth this year. Somehow and someway I just let my teeth go. Don’t misunderstand …

My New Home

I have finally moved! I could not be happier. Really. I have been so grateful to Paul and Kari for opening their homes to me. But there is nothing like being in your own space. It’s been a long time coming but this place has made it worth the wait. I could not have found …

Watching from a distance

It’s been a long time since I have posted anything on here. I have been so busy with some life changes. But I need to share something that has been weighing heavy on my heart. I have been watching from afar as a loved one has struggled with an unfair hardship. This story is for …
