  • Smartwool Socks

    Smartwool Socks

    As a kid and young adult, the thought of giving or receiving socks as gifts made me want to vomit. Lame. I’m in my 30’s now and I’ve officially changed my stance because of one, specific brand… Smartwool. Smartwool socks are high-quality socks made of Merino wool. Merino wool is not traditional wool. It’s much […]

  • Sympathy Cookie Cake

    Sympathy Cookie Cake

    There are entire businesses built around giving cookie cakes to celebrate special occasions. I remembers as a tween when I suddenly became too cool for a birthday cake. Instead, I wanted a giant cookie cake from Great American Cookies (from the mall!) for my birthday party. The cookie business has evolved since then. Now you […]

  • Baby Shark | Singing Plush Toy

    Baby Shark | Singing Plush Toy

    I first learned the “Baby Shark” song more than 10 years ago at Girl Scout camp as an adult volunteer. Baby Shark Doo Doo Doo Doo… I thought it was adorable with its catchy tune and fun hand motions. Nobody I knew outside of Girl Scouts had even heard of the song. Now the “Baby […]

    Real Roses Preserved & Dipped in 24kt Gold

    Red roses are the traditional symbol for a beautiful way to say “I love you.” My husband and sons know I love red roses. They also know I hate throwing them out after they wilt and die. Deep down I feel like I’m throwing their hard earned money in the trash.

  • Buddha Board Enso Infinite Art

    Buddha Board Enso Infinite Art

    It’s rare to come across something that you’ve never seen before or experienced anything like it. The Buddha Board Enso definitely caught my eye! Imagine drawing, painting and writing on a board with a water brush and creating images with a rich, inky Japanese look. As the water slowly evaporates, your art will magically disappear […]

  • Grandparents & Grandchildren Photo Session

    Grandparents & Grandchildren Photo Session

    There’s nothing like going to visit Mimi and Papi! When I tell my kids I’m taking them to their grandparents house, they whoop and jump around as if I’ve just told them I’m taking them to Disney World. Grandchildren have a special bond with grandparents that is unique from the parent/child relationship. My two young […]

  • April Fools’ Day Pranks

    April Fools’ Day Pranks

    April Fools’ Day is so much fun and it doesn’t matter whether you are in on the prank or the recipient of the joke! I remember my very first office prank in the 1970s. I left a message for my boss to call Mr. Lyon. Secretly, the number was to the Oklahoma City Zoo. When […]
