ultimate gifts for wife

Dude. You're welcome. I did the leg work to make your life so much easier. I asked hundreds of women what they wanted for Christmas from their spouse, and these are no-fail gifts that {almost} any women will love. I have to say "almost" because let's be honest, whether we like something or not COMPLETELY  depends on our mood. <---  I can't believe I  just admitted that. Shhhh don't tell my husband. But, the best … [Read more...]

It’s the worst snow storm in over 100 years in our area. They have been playing in the snow like crazy. It’s been fun because it brings back tons of memories of playing in the snow from my childhood in Central Utah. As you may know, I am posting … [Read more...]
