DIY Red, White and Blue Hair Ties in 15 Minutes

Dear readers, I just finished a weekend that made my heart feel full and content. My nephew and my mom came up to visit for a few days from back home. It was the first time I've seen my nephew in a very long time. Sadly with work, Squeak, and budgets (oh my) I haven't been able to make the trip home as much as I want too. This weekend, home came to me! We spent a lot of time…

Happy New Year’s Eve from Ms. Moxie xoxo

Dear readers, Welcome to 2017... I had a wonderful New Year's Eve. From the moment my night started, to the very end when I walked home at 2 am in my sparkly mini-dress. Well, that part wasn't exceptionally wonderful, but I was happy to not drink and drive. I felt like a glowing ball of love all night because I was so happy to be around my friends and co-workers. I felt so blessed. I also threw up the rocker…

11 Pre-Holiday Items You NEED to Thrift for Right Now

Dear readers, It's September, you know in a week or two we will be going crazy for the holidays. I went to Big Lots yesterday and they were actually putting out Christmas stuff with the Halloween decorations. Pretty much sacrilege in my book, but, alas, I digress. Soon enough you will be roaming Pinterest for ideas on home-made centerpieces, decorations, and gift ideas, so now is the perfect time to start scouring thrift stores for these crafty, useful items that are…

Camping with my Best Friend

Dear readers, I have the best friend in the whole world. We met when we were seven. We were in the same class together. We walked home from school one day and we realized that her family had moved in to my family's old house. I'd like to think we knew it was meant to be. We did ridiculous things together as kids. I think my child is weird, but when I look back on the things my best friend and I…

A “Happy Birthday” with a friend…

Dear readers, On March 25th, 2014, my friend, and work-out partner,  Kayla turned 27 years old. She says she feels old, but I reminded her that I will always be older, so she has nothing to worry about. That's what friends are for. What did I do for her birthday? I did what any gym partner would do. I kicked her butt into shape at the gym, then we had a spa day in the girl's locker room, and then we…

Just the Beginning

So. It's been a rough few months for me. And I've found the best thing to get through a rough patch in life (aside from wine) is to stay busy. The main way I have wanted to stay busy, as always, is through creating and crocheting. And so "Crafts for Cause" was born, the little brainchild of a sad time. My friends and I are always looking for a way to give back to our little community. So we started…

Saturday Night Rye

At least one Saturday every month, when the stars align and all my friends have a night off, we get together and watch horror movies. Typically on these nights everyone brings some sort of snack and probably a bottle of wine to share. Since I made it my New Year's Resolution to eat more pie, that is exactly what my friend Melissa and I made. Here is a hearty pie crust recipe that will work out well with any filling you choose…

Happy New Year and here come the resolutions…

I had a great New Year's Eve. My friends had a small get together at their apartment and I rang in the New Year laid-back style with my little girl, Audrey, some sangria, buffalo chicken dip, and lots of cheese. All in good company of course. And, best news of all, my daughter started walking in front of everyone! Over the past week, I have been contemplating my resolutions for the year 2014. While I am not the type to…

The 12 Highlights of Christmas 2013

Dear readers, The time has come to reflect on the holiday events of the previous week, after all, it is New Years Eve, and all sorts of reflection is in order. I have officially eaten way too much (currently eating a piece of pizza... perfect material for the Fitness 2014 blog I plan on writing next), drank too much, taken too many pictures, and watched my daughter have a great time. It was Audrey's very first Christmas, and I think…
