I made the decision earlier this year to start the process of buying a home for the first time. I’ve always eluded home ownership because I never wanted the responsibilities that come with such a large purchase. But after my property management company recently increase my rent significantly, I decided it was time to take the plunge. Lately I’ve been thinking about my must-haves in a home and also the features of my dream home. The kitchen and bathroom are the two MOST important rooms in my house because that’s where I spend the most time. Why? Because I love to cook and I love to poop. DUH! (more…)
Happy Earth Day. As promised, I told you guys I would remind you about Zoya’s Earth Day Exchange and it’s here. Well actually I’m a little late because it started on Monday, but the good news is the promo is going on until the end of the month. So after today, you still have 8 days to get in on some great polish for a good cause.

Happy Tuesday. Yesterday I spent my entire day sitting at the hospital. My dad had surgery scheduled on his knee in the morning and the surgery took longer than normal, so we just sat and waited and waited. Going into the surgery I was positive about the outcome. But after 3 hours, I started getting a little nervous. When the receptionist said she had no update, that’s when the attitude was about to come out. I’m sitting with my mom and inside my head I’m saying, “Where is my daddy? Someone better get me an update” (attitude and all). Before approaching the receptionist again, I said a little prayer and then calmly walked over to her and asked for a status of how the surgery was going. She made a couple of phone calls and found out the surgery started later than scheduled. And as I was standing there, my dad’s doctor appeared to give my family and update. Things went well and the surgery was successful. Thank you Jehovah! (more…)
