MOM Deals This Week

Blog-396

This past week, we scored some great freebies, or almost freebies, including lots of almost free cereal. But, the highlight for the kids was probably when we “tasted the fire” and ate lunch for free from El Pollo Loco. It was the kids’ idea. Really. You don’t think I’m crazy enough to take SIX kids […]

Just Wondering….

House Wall Under Construction ca. 1999

I so enjoy your comments, questions, and emails. They are a fantastic reminder to me that I am not talking to myself. If that were the case, I might as well go get that laundry done! I gain so much from those who read and offer feedback, and I’m really enjoying the friendships I’m building […]

Weekend Trip: An Eating Tour of Santa Barbara

April-2009-032

We spent the weekend away, back in our old stomping grounds. What a walk down memory lane! FishPapa grew up in Santa Barbara. I went to college there. We met and married there. FishBoy 11 was born there. The place is full of memories. That is for sure. If you’ve ever been to Santa Barbara, […]
