Comments Off on Saving Loads of Cash at Coastal.com
This post brought to you by Coastal.com. All opinions are 100% mine. When I was little, my nickname was "four eyes." Not a very nice name for a first grader. Ah, revenge can be sweet, though.

OK, kitteh sleuths– see if you can find her in THIS photo! Last week, we had a vicious cold spell. Temperatures dipped down to sub-zeros. We had to bring the Yorkies into the living room for a bit, as the room they stay in doesn’t have a heater. Well, it DOES have a heater, but […]

This post brought to you by Mrs. Smith’s. All opinions are 100% mine. I grew up on homemade pies. My mother made the most amazing pies and her pie crusts were always phenomenal. She usually only made pies during the holidays. How we kids would beg her to make them more often! She used to […]
