I’m a southern girl through and through but sometimes I need a fresh take to some southern favorites. In my home growing up (and even still today) my mother boils neck bones down with all types of greens, beans and vegetables.... Continue reading →
By mail we receive a lot of credit card offers daily. They all seem to offer the sun, moon and stars and all they ask in return are both kidneys, an arm leg and your first child. Ok, that may... Continue reading →
Keeping up with our expenses from month to month can be a taunting task. In the beginning I felt as if it were impossible to know exactly what needs to be paid and when. And lets just say many bills... Continue reading →
Our home is perfect. I’ts decorated with only high end decor and everything here is just awesome. (Can you sense the sarcasm?) In real life our home is just like many other homes living on a tight budget. There are... Continue reading →
