Beauty Product Storage: How do you organize it?

Since I’m still settling into my new place, one of the challenges I face has to do with my beauty products.  About a year and a half ago, I bought this organizer at Target.  It was great for splitting up my numerous products. Plus it was easy to carry from one room to another since I wasn’t living in my… Read more »

Wild Walleye: Minnesota Starts Fishing

Apparently, people will be up late tonight…not because a movie is premiering, not because they’re getting lucky, but because they are catching a fish.  And no, that’s not a euphemism. I’m told that offices will be near empty tomorrow.  I’ll believe that when I see it.  I love it when offices are empty even when I don’t have many responsibilities… Read more »

Happiness is Little Dreams Realized

One of the many great things about living in Minnesota is that I get to try new things… While new fast food joints might not seem sexy or even cool, I was very excited about three news ones.

Either way, I’m so grateful for GPS… Read more »

Road Trip to Minnesota: Day 5 – South Dakota & Home

We woke up in Rapid City.  South Dakota has always had a place in my heart.  Members of my family are from the western part of the state.  It’s been one of my goals to visit those roots.  But, we had a bigger goal in mind…getting home!  So, we set off for the 10 hour drive.  Maybe it was only… Read more »

Road Trip to Minnesota: Day One

      No Comments on Road Trip to Minnesota: Day One

Anyone who has ever moved as an adult hates packing.  Even though I purged and purged, I was still forced to leave crap behind in California.  The essentials, sadly not including wine, were all that would fit into my Beetle. In a frenzy, I had to decide what was needed (clothes for job interviews) and what could wait, (wine, fancy… Read more »
