"Cake" Premiered In NYC



Jennifer Aniston's 'Cake' movie has premiered in New York City. It will be playing in theaters, in January 2015. In this movie, Jennifer portrays a chronic pain sufferer. As a chronic pain sufferer, I'm really looking forward to seeing the movie.

I may be wrong, but this might be the first time we're seeing the main female character, as a chronic pain sufferer. Now, if the interviewers could stop talking about her no makeup, drab clothes and move on to the story, that would be wonderful.

Thank You Hubby For The Gorgeous Flowers!

Even when it's cold outside, it's wonderful to have fresh flowers in the house! I just love the colors and fragance, in the air!

Ramblings for a Suburban Mom



I loved that Solange incorporate her personal style into her wedding. From the white bicycles, with flower lined baskets to her white jumpsuit and cape it was put this wedding at a 10+! I wonder how soon well see many of these touches in other weddings?



Being a chronic illness sufferer for more than a decade, has been a rollercoaster ride but one thing, I've strive to maintain is my humor! Yes, laughter does make my pain filled day more tolerable.



Who doesn't have tech items on their Christmas list? So why not shop around, for a deal and perhaps something nice for yourself. I love that Target is offering Target gift cards with some of their tech items. I guess I'll be doing some Black Friday shopping after all!



As long as I can remember, many products and services, for women, cost more than for men. Take haircuts, for example, I used to pay around $15, at the hair salon, while my husband was only paying $10 at Supercuts.

Which is why I use Dollar Club Shave razors instead of buying women's razor. They're less expensive!

My See Body Love Self Interview



Recently, I had the opportunity to be interviewed by Ivy, Body Relationship Coach and See Body Love Self, to share my body image journey.

When one is participating in an interview, I think the best experience is when you come from it learning something about yourself. I'm happy to say that this was definitely one of those times!

Sunday Dinner: Crab Boil, Cheese Biscuits

Our son, his fiancee and daughter stopped by to cook Sunday dinner. This was a wonderful treat for me. I could put my feet up, drink a cocktail and enjoy so football. The aromas were making our tummies rumble. And "Oh Mother Hubbard"! This was an amazing meal!


Snow crab, mussels, potatoes, corn, sausage, shrimp, onions, garlic and a delicious broth. If you're looking for something different for holiday dinner, I would highly recommend this meal!


Cheese biscuits~tender and yummy! Just the thing to enjoy the fabulous broth!

Nescafe Dolce Gusto Genio CoffeeMaker Has Arrived!

We love coffee so when I ran out this morning, I was really dreading bundling up to go out and buy some. All I had to do was click my heels 3 times, say *"Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!" and knock-knock! It was the UPS guy dropping off a couple of packages!

*Yes, we're "Gilmore Girls" fans!

Sunday Community: November 16, 2014



"Life isn't fair".

How many times have I've thought or said those words in my life? When a situation, didn't work out for me, I felt like I was given a bad deal. Instead, I should have been look at as an learning opportunity. This was the Heavenly Father letting me know to let go of control.

I especially felt that when I suffered permanent nerve damage from a car accident then a work injury 3 years later.

I felt it when I decided to end my life.

I felt it during my years of opioid addiction.


My life is to be lived! To be experience! And to learn! Thank you Heavenly Father for being in my life!

Enterprise Rent A Car: Another Amazing Customer Service Experience

They're Engaged!

Congratulations~Our son and his girlfriend are engaged!



Las Vegas Farmers Market

Hubby took Friday off, we rented a car from Enterprise and hit the road, to play tourist. One of our stops was the Las Vegas Farmers Market. It's located in the old bus depot, near Fremont Street. I love that it's inside. As many of you know, our summers are brutal. Also our winters can be very cold and windy!

While many of the vendors do accept credit and debit card tranactions, we had to make a stop to our bank because of multiple swipes. The results: my husband's card was locked up. Lesson learned: Bring cash!

Ramblings of a Suburban Mom



PepsiCo Inc. is concocting a version of its Mountain Dew soda flavored to taste like cheesy Doritos chips. While I give it to them for creativity, this gal will be skipping this one.



This Wednesday, the midwest was rocked by more than just extreme cold, when a 4.8 magnitude earthquake shook parts of Kansas and Oklahoma. I hope everyone is okay.



The Chop House, in Tennessee, accidentally added 3 zeros to their bill total. So, it your bill was $80, it was $80,000! As someone who looks at their receipts, we would have caught that one. Anyways, the restaurant says that they will cover any overcharge fees that the customers have occurred.



My husband and I have utilized online healthcare, NowClinic, offered through his health insurance. It's very convenient for those late night concerns, like the flu, or prescription refill request.
