If there’s one thing I love, it’s college football season.  Having attended a large public university where football is its own institution, Saturdays are always spent in front of the TV watching the NCAA action.  I hadn’t had the pleasure of actually going to a game – and better yet, enjoying the tailgating festivities – in more than five years until recently.I might as well spill it now.  I’m a Gator fan – I bleed orange and blue.   And now is as good a time as any to be a Gator fan.  In case you don’t follow college football, the Gators ranked second this year and claimed a spot to play the number one ranked Oklahoma Sooners in this year’s Bowl Championship Series game in Miami, FL.  Essentially, this is the Super Bowl of college f...

Sigh. So, I think I finally have my house and garage rearranged and organized to make room for all of the Christmas presents Santa brought. It was just a few things but, boy, they seemed to all be really big in size. As you know, I LOVE hosting garage sales. So, consequently, that means I insisted on storing everything we cleaned out until we have our garage sale in the spring. Luckily, we have two big attics in our house to stash all of our junk. But, I know lots of you don't have the luxury of an attic or basement so you have to haul your stuff to a storage building, or eliminate the hoarding all together and simply haul it to Goodwill or the dump. Oh, and I know how those multiple trips to storage buildings or the dump can get tiresome. Even a pickup truck can fill up fast. If this sounds all too familiar to you, maybe i... More

If you’re considering buying a card table, you owe it to yourself to check out this folding round table. Round tables typically don’t take up any more room than those old-fashioned square card tables, but they roll and store so much easier it’s almost criminal to consider the “square” alternative. A folding round table generally has a greater surface area and can seat more people than square tables, they look nicer in a banquet setting, and are still ideal for game night, scrapbook parties, church activities, holiday events, and even garage sales. This folding round table is available with free shipping from BuyLifetime.com! Bulk discount pricing available. More

My oh my.  What a weekend!  My husband and I hosted a party at our house for his squadron on Saturday night.  We always like to make things interesting and entertaining so we decided to host a Murder Mystery party for our 39 guests.  Never been to a Murder Mystery party?  More details on how it works in a minute... The theme of our Murder Mystery party was a Class of '85 High School Reunion.  Everyone had to dress like their character would have in the 80s.  Wow, talk about some, like, totally awesome costumes!  The women pulled out all the classics including jelly bracelets, leggings, shoulder pads, and cans of Aquanet hairspray to tease their hair.  (Ah, the good 'ol days.)  Not to be outdone, the men donned layered shirts, Miami Vice suits, acid washed jeans, and rat tails...
