Keep Your Identity Locked up With LifeLock

How to Host a Football Party for Grown Men


Ahh, football season.  My absolute favorite time of the year.  With the starting of the season also comes a very important day for some… Fantasy Football Draft Day! I know that it may seem silly, but grown men (and a few women) will spend months working on their potential lineup, agonizing over whether a certain […]

Homemade Drain Cleaner {totally green and safe}


With four bathrooms and a very overworked kitchen in my home, drains have a tendency to become clogged. Maybe a bit quicker than I would like, or can keep up with, if I am being honest. Between kids shoving stickers and small pieces of papers down (please tell me I’m not alone in that!), crazy […]
