Dress Up Your Pet Day

This Silly Holiday makes me laugh.  Yes, I have been known to gawk at the cute little outfits…but I have a CAT not a DOG.  Who dresses up their cat?  I will be honest and say it wasn’t my idea, it was my ex-roommates idea.  I would go on plane trips where I couldn’t take […]

National French Fries Day

French Fries are a luxury in my diet, not a standard.  I didn’t grow up in a fast food and hamburger & fries family. (thanks mom)  When my mom would ‘allow’ us to have french fries, it was a treat.  And if I really look back, it was probably because she was craving them herself, […]
