Lifehack Review: Making Scratches Disappear On Glasses

I came across a lifehack that sounded too good to be true, but one that would save us money and be extremely useful, if it worked. Could using a compound of one-part baking soda to two-parts water on scratched glasses actually buff out the offending lines, thereby rendering your glasses like new again?

It was only this year that I made them myself. Here are her delightful cookies: I won't lie, I would hide her cookies the minute they hit our home.

Vanilla Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon Rolls. Those two words conjure many a memory for most of us. Throw in a vanilla twist and, oh, momma! Divine! I originally saw this recipe at Mel's Kitchen a few years back (she tweaked the recipe from another) and made them almost immediately.

Toddler Balance Bikes

If you are like me (clueless, in this case), you are asking yourself: what is a toddler balance bike?

Once a year I write about the signs of drowning and secondary drowning (who knew that was a thing?!) because A) Most people think drowning looks like the Hollywood version of struggling about in the water and B) the post serves to educate  or refresh all of us as we enter into the summer season of … [Read More...]
