Oh So Sweet Krispie Treats & 17 Valentine’s Day Ideas


I have a rule that I don’t start getting into a holiday until the month it’s in…unless it’s New Year’s…that gets the week after Christmas.  But I’m getting this out of the way so I don’t have to deal with it anymore.  I’m not really all that into Valentine’s Day.  I’ve been at work for so many years on February 14th, waiting on couples and groups of couples, that I’d rather

Today was one of my favorite days.  NEW PHONE DAY!!! Mike got the ridiculously huge Note 2 and I ended up getting a phone that wasn’t on my list, the RAZR HD.  I have 14 days.  The Galaxy S3 was my first choice. Mike had that phone, and I it just seemed so big!  The phone I ended up getting isn’t really any smaller.  I’ll probably switch to my fist
