Still relatively new to Arizona. I have lived on both coasts...I may be working my way inward now. :) I am the mom of a pretty awesome 17-year-old boy (though at this point he would wig out on my saying boy, kid or anything less than teenager) and the wife of a very amazing man. I have been blessed beyond measure when it comes to love, and isn't that really where the blessings count the most? I like to watch people and often I like to comment. I also enjoying helping people, but I kind of get saddened by seeing the same person always in the same boat.
Enjoy EVERY moment in your wedding gown. You can't stay in it forever...SO UNFAIR!!!!

I Love A Tip
**What works for me, is making my own chocolate syrup so I don't have to serve my family syrup made with artificial flavors and chemical enhancers...not to mention corn syrup. - Kelly
I am the type of person who is always looking for a way to make life a bit easier. Because of that, I will fill scores of composition books with tips that I hear from friends, find online, or locate through magazines. If you like to find easier ways to do things to, you should seriously check out We Are That Family. A wonderful website blog that shares some wonderful tips. One of the things I really like about We Are That Family is that they have a wonderful blog carnival every Wednesday called "Works For Me Wednesday." Works For Me Wednesday is a special spot where bloggers gather together all kinds of great tips and tricks for all things that make life easier. It is like spending time with a group of friends who know a trick or two about EVERYTHING! I love it!
If you are looking for ways to make life easier, look no further. They also have an ebook of many of the great tips that have been shared over the last 5 years of their doing this wonderful blog carnival. It is called That Works For Me.
Here are a couple of tips that I have found that I really like:
1- Put a wooden spoon over a pot that you are boiling water in. It is supposed to keep it from boiling over.
2- Turn all your hangers inside. As you take clothes out of the closet to wear, turn the hangers around. After six months (or fewer) donate the clothes that have are on the hangers that are still not turned around. I love that one for donating. We also do not buy clothes unless we donate the same amount out.

Welcome to my mind...
What there is of it anyway. I am a person who is consistent only in the fact that I am consistently changing. I am a happy wife and mother. I have been blessed with an amazing son and an amazing husband. They both are quite generous in their love for me, and they both enjoy me for the oddball I can be. I am rich in my life and my experiences. I am not rich in the wallet, but you can't take it with you anyway...so I'll have nothing to miss. :)
