Before we sold our house (3 days after putting it up for sale!), we had a laundry list of things to do in order to appeal to a variety of potential buyers. Selling your house ain’t easy. Even if it sells fast. And I rarely say “ain’t”. After deciding to … Continue reading

DIY: Plastic bag holder

Plastic bag holder/dispenser

Hi! I’m here! It took 3 weeks, but we now have internet. It’s cellular and has upload and download limits from 2002 but, luckily, Bell Fibe internet is coming to our street. We’ll be kissing these cellular butts goodbye soon, with any luck, and for a ridiculous cancellation fee that — unfortunately — will be totally worth it. … Continue reading

pink Fossil Bee S4 case

Samsung releases the Galaxy S6 on April 10, 2015, comprised of metal, glass, non-removable battery and no expandable memory — offering instead impressive internal storage with 32, 64 and 128GB models.   Its release date makes this my perfect birthday phone, or so you’d think.
