Retro Christmas Theme

2012 was the first Christmas our entire family has been together in years.  It was wonderful to have our mom and dad hand over the family home so we could decorate, cook and entertain for all 13 family members.  To add to the fun, we decided to do a retro Christmas theme of plenty of lights, tinsel and flashy decorations from the 1960's.



Everyone who entered the living room for the first time took a step backward to recover from the shock of bright multi-colored lights on every wall and piece of furniture, the bright tinsel hanging over every picture and mirror and the many flashy hanging accordion-style ropes that covered everything in sight.  And to add that final 1960's touch, we had a reflective "Merry Christmas" banner hanging in tatters across the drapes.  With the over-sized and well-lite ceramic tree from the 1970's along with the Christmas tree covered with lights and ornaments, it was a site for sunglasses.

Let's just say I knew we had hit our target when someone exclaimed, "Wow, it looks like Christmas was shot out of a canon in here!"

And how was your Christmas?

Simple Squares Help To Curb That Appetite!

With the holiday season now in full swing, you can bet most of us are going to find ourselves tempted by trays of decadent desserts, plates of sugar cookies and an abundance of chocolate delights every time we visit family and friends not to mention under our own Christmas Trees.

With all this temptation lurking behind every door and in our own homes, I couldn't think of a better time to try out the All Natural Whole Food Snacks from Simple Squares.


Simple Squares are made from just 5 all-natural ingredients and promise to satisfy that "sweet tooth" with a nourishing square made from organic nuts, organic honey, organic vanilla, sea salt and organic herbs.   Nothing else has been added making these wheat-free, gluten-free, dairy-free and free of refined sugar.


There are four delicious flavors to choose from:  Nut and Honey with Rosemary, Nut and Honey with Sage, Cinnamon Clove and my favorite, Nut and Honey with Coconut. 

Lightweight, individually packaged and easy to carry, these squares will be ideal this holiday season but once the parties are over, I can see taking these along on hikes, bike rides, camping or any other occasion that requires access to something quick, simple, filling and most importantly, delicious.  They are never baked, low in sodium and sugar and packed with protein so you know they are good for you.

Curb your "Urge to Splurge" this holiday season with Simple Squares.  I will be!!

Gunman??? It's Time To Coin A New Word

As the mother of a six-year old little girl who is in grade one, I am absolutely shattered by the devastating events that unfolded in Newtown on Friday.

But as outraged as I am at the events, I get more and more agitated every time I hear that psycho little bastard described as a "gunman" in the media.  I mean are you serious???

When you use the word "gunman", it implies macho, muscular or some other Arnold-like character.  I think it's time we hit the egos of these little Rambo-wanna-be rat bastards with a new name that more accurately describes them.  A word they know in advance will go down in history attached to them.

It's time we started to use the word "Guncoward" when reporting their vicious crimes.

There, that's more like it.

  "Guncoward"

 Now I can get an accurate visual on what these little freaks
 really look like and are all about!
