After the raging success of her Valentine's Day heart hair and St. Patrick's Day shamrock hair, Addie has been begging me to do a special Christmas hairstyle.

When we moved into our house three years ago, we invested in all new kitchen appliances. Though I researched them thoroughly before making the purchase, we have been less than thrilled with their performance.

Before you grab another gift card for that hard-to-buy-for recipient on your gift list, consider a gift basket instead... No, I'm not recommending that you buy one of those prepackaged baskets of sausage and cheese or shower products -- not that there's anything wrong with those.

Summer seems a long way off right now, but that doesn't mean that we can't still enjoy some of favorite warm weather flavors during the cold, winter months. Right?
