It only took 33 years….

Guess what I finally splurged on for myself?!


A Coach Purse!

*Disclaimer: I didn’t splurge too much.  My momma would still proud – it was on sale!


From me, to me gifts have to rank right up there with World Peace and Winning the Lottery.

Ok, well, maybe not that high, but they do rock my socks!

What about you?

What was your best from me, to me gift, ever?

Now that’s a first!

Those of you that know me, know I love to travel.  I could spend hours searching for the perfect destination, rental, airfare…and often do when we’re planning a trip.  I want to ensure I get the best location for the absolute best price.

What can I say?  My momma taught me well.  Maybe it’s because being a single parent of four kids, she could never afford to take us on vacation so now that I have the opportunity to go every now and then, I want to make her proud by finding a bargain so she doesn’t think I’m spending my money frivolously.  Whatever the reason, searching for bargain travel has to be one of my favorite hobbies (Can that even be considered a hobby?).

Anyway, I was perusing one of my favorite travel sites, SniqueAway and came across this hotel in Punta Cana…

Normally – $371 / night

On special for the barain price of – $129 / night

Ok…what’s the catch?

I proceed to the hotel website to read the fine print and stumble across their FAQs…

Well then…that’s a first!  Most either say… Yes! They are welcome…. or No!  Adults only!

I’m not sure I’ve ever seen an answer quite like this, but it doesn’t make you feel so welcome.  I like a definite “No” better than a “well…we’ll allow them, but we’d rather not have your bratty kids at our resort” type of response.

Hmm…maybe they need some help in their Marketing department or maybe they don’t know what they want to be when they grow up.  Either way, my advice…

Make a damn decision and stick with it!

Red headed stepchild

Yes, it’s true…

I’ve been treating my blog like a red headed stepchild lately.  It lost priority status sometime around the holidays, but I hope to get my butt back in gear soon.

Lots going on…where oh where to focus?
