How Kristen Got Her Style Back with Style Encore

Personal Shopping Experience with Style Encore Last year, I weighed the most that I have ever weighed without there being a baby involved. My cholesterol and blood pressure were up and while part of that is genetic (thanks Mom and Dad…), it was more because of the extra weight that I was carrying around. I made the decision that I…

No More Grilling in the Dark! While the Boss may be Dancin’ in the Dark, right now the Rooster is grillin’ in the dark LIKE a boss and not having a single issue with the “is it really done??” conundrum that can come with late night grilling. Let’s face it, in an ideal world we’d have dinner over and done…

Vacationing with Teens and Tweens: Our Spring Break Cruise on Royal Caribbean Okay.. I have to get one thing out in the open before I start… I was in NO way compensated for this review. No free wifi, no free drinks, nothing. This trip was 100% funded by me and the big guy. What you’re reading here is a completely…

Let’s Make Apple Smoked Piggy Pops on the Grill!

Making Apple Smoked Piggy Pops with Cave Tool Smoker Box One of the big drawbacks of winter is that we do not grill out nearly as much as we do in the warmer weather. Now that it’s March, we’re slowly getting back into grilling out at least once, if not twice, a week. Pretty soon we’ll be back at it at…

I am heading back to the east coast after a whirlwind trip to Los Angeles (okay, Pasadena) where I sat in on the 2016 Television Critics Association Press tour for Netflixs big day of announcements.

Oh those fashionable 80s Growing up in the south during the 80s was a special time. Like, totally special and righteously tubular. The music was the best there ever was (and still is IMHO) and we predicted our future with a paper fortune-teller. There were no cell phones… If you weren’t lucky enough to have a landline phone in your…
