It Takes an Army, A Swiss Army

How many times have you been out shopping at T.J. Maxx, reach for a 50%-off the already 50%-reduced item and gaaa! a painful hangnail or a jagged nail. The horror! There’s nothing left to do but go on home and drink; your whole day has been ruined. DON’T BE A WIMP!  There are still amazing […]

10 Fat Turkeys

10 Fat Turkeys

One of the best things about being a grandmama is cruising the kid’s section at the book store (physical or virtual).  Oh, how I’ve missed reading/buying/sharing silly fun books.  The high-pitched voices and acting out of scenes is a glorious bonus (or at least I hope it is). ~ A gentle reminder: OMT! uses Amazon […]

A Non-Stick Silicone Baker’s Mat = A Happy Baker

A Silicone Mat = A Happy Baker

One year for Christmas I received an unexpected gift from Boy that I honestly thought I’d never use; I got a silicone non-stick baker’s mat. Confession: I’m an old school baker that eschews most anything silicone.  It isn’t aesthetically or physically appealing to me.  To be honest it gives me the icks. THE ICKS, I […]

Duvet Schmuvet, No More!

Taking the Mystery out of a Duvet Cover

Confession Time: I’ve wanted a generously large goose down comforter for years, but have failed to fulfill that wonderfully fluffy dream because I’m scared of duvet covers.  Yep, scared.  They are totally bewildering to me.  I’ve looked at them with no understanding. Yes,  I see you’re a cover that protects my goose downy investment.  Yes, […]

Take a Hike

Matador Pocket Blanket

Are you a hiker?  A hitchhiker?!  DON’T DO THAT! I mean more like a person who hikes and then likes to sit and rest a bit as you enjoy the scenery. How about taking walks with the kiddos?  Do you like to do that? Impromptu picnic planner?  A park day with your pup?  Sitting by […]
