The Charger’s Have Left San Diego, Now How Do I Decorate?
Many readers know, I live in a Charger house and am a native San Diegan, and for me there was no other team to get behind but the San Diego Chargers.
Since the news broke that they are leaving I have done a lot of reading and had many discussions. For now the Chargers are still the Bolts, and the team colors are still yellow and blue – this could change down the line, but now it remains (I believe they just went through a uniform change a couple years ago, and the NFL rules state that changes can be made every 5 years).
Jason is a born, bred and lifelong fan and never planned on supporting another team. As he put it, he has 40+ years invested in this team, players and history and 100 mile move would not change that. As for me, I am a hometown girl.
When you have a pets, it is inevitable that you will need small bags to clean up after them. I have been on a search for a dispenser that at the least would keep the plastic bags organized until I need them.
One afternoon, as I was depleting my pre-moistened wipes, inspiration struck and I realized with a little bit of effort, I could create a dispenser for plastic bags that would be easy and cater to my love of all things color filled.
With about a hour or two you too can have a custom plastic bag dispenser.
The idea of monthly subscription boxes is not new. These monthly mailbox surprises have had many incarnations including the well known “of the month” clubs.
Today boxes tend to fall into 1 of 2 categories: Commerce commerce and Discovery commerce. The Convenience Commerce boxes are for the items you know and love and have to have them each month. On the other side you have the Discovery Boxes. These boxes exist to allow customers to discover new items that they otherwise may not have been introduced to. The boxes that we tend to review here are the Discovery boxes.
Here are my top x boxes that we received in 2016, and are excited to continue receiving in 2017.
2 Years .. 3 Lessons I have Learned Since I Lost My Grandma
Today marks the 2 year anniversary of the loss of my grandmother – Shirley. This was my father’s mother and the most consistent female in my life. Since I grew up with a single father, my grandmother was the closest female and the most constant in my life. As I look back she never missed an event, or special moment in my life despite having 6 other grandchildren to think about. There was little that would stop her, as we discovered when despite being sick, and having dental pain she still came to our wedding BBQ about a year before she passed!
Sadly with the loss of my grandmother came many emotions and feelings that I did not know I would feel . The following are 3 things I have learned since her passing ..

Stampin’ Up – Moroccan Designer Series Paper and Washi Tape – DIY Dry Erase Board + Giveaway!
I have been wanting a dry erase board for our house, but I was looking for one in the 8 x 10 size range and preferably with a nice border or frame.
A couple of years ago my father moved out of his house, which meant that the “Wall of Jennifer” would be removed. The wall consisted of every school photo from kindergarten to senior year, with a couple of others added in. When he moved I not only claimed the photos but the frames as well. I was not sure what the plan was for all these random sized frames but I knew someday I would want them.
Since I was unable to locate the dry erase board I wanted, it dawned on me that I could easily make one with that simple frame that used to hold my elementary years. While I was reviewing the latest Stampin’ Up catalog, and when I came across the Moroccan Designer Series of Paper and Washi Tape the project came together in my head.
To say that the field of medicine has come a long way would be a DRASTIC understatement. I am always interested in the so called “miracle cures” and as we go back in history there are a lot of them. Recently I was reading an article about an oddly named street here in California, and it lead me to the gentleman who the street was named after.
The street is “XXYZX Road” in San Bernandino, and the origins are that of a Curtis Howe Springer who was an old-time radio evangelist at the turn of the century. As his life path unfolded he became a doctor in his own head, and spent many hours convincing others of this fact. Deciding to move west, he got over 12,000 acres of desert to build a hot springs, 60-room hotel, spa, mineral baths, a radio studio, and a church. Well, long story short, he began using this show to sell cures and Springer himself was convicted for selling junk “cures”.
