If I had Twenty Dollars....

Today will mark the first in a series entitled "If I had Twenty Dollars..."  (Is If I Had a Million Dollars by the Bare Naked Ladies in your head yet? If it wasn't, I apologize, but gosh, what a catchy tune that was... "but not a real fur coat, that's cruel...." ) But I digress.

Now, the purpose of this series is to reveal what I would do if I found myself with a twenty-dollar bill that just had to be spent immediately.  (And contrary to my husband's beliefs, that is not the state of all twenty-dollar bills that make their way into my wallet).  Why $20?

Free Bunco Party Printables!

So Catherine's and my good friend Amanda over at Dixie Delights gave us the heads up on a fabulous deal for all our readers.... free Bunco party printables!  Dixie Delights, by the way, is a too-much blog that is one of my personal faves - and surely you recall that I define too much as too fabulous, or in other words, just perfect.  Anyway, the printables are absolutely adorable, and hey, did we mention they're free?  :o)

In honor, in memory, in love

Today is a day not to focus on Bunco, or parties, or football, or any of the wonderful fun things that life has to offer.  Instead, today is a day to reflect, to put those things in perspective, and to be grateful to our brothers and sisters who've sacrificed their all so that we can enjoy such frivolities, and often without second thought.

You Go, Pregnant Girl... and take those tacky shoes with you...

With Labor Day now having come and gone, there is a surprising crispness to the air here in Atlanta.  It sure is a nice change from the down-right sweltering weather we were having.  So that our readers in less, shall we say, near-tropic climates can understand, it was literally stifling hot.  And you know what they say about Southern humidity....

Labor of Love....

It's Labor Day!  We hope all our readers are enjoying their holiday in whatever way suits their fancy.  Here in Atlanta, it's been a dreary/cozy/sleepy kind of day... I must admit, it's been a nice and relaxing way to end a 3 day weekend.

Be it ever so humble.... it still deserves a gift

"Home is an invention on which no one has yet improved."  Ann Douglas

As most of our readers know, my husband and I just moved into a new home (and yes, I have already had our Bunco group here to appropriately christen it)!  We are loving it, especially
