Candle centerpieces
Return of the Mac


Today would have been my 20th wedding anniversary. BvP texted me shortly after Max’s passing last summer and he’s doing very well.

Even though we’re apart longer than we were together, I can’t ignore the date. Twenty years was a long time ago.

The ride with you was worth the fall, my friend. I wish you the best of everything.

Candle centerpieces

Two years ago, a friend of mine shared a Christmas centerpiece on Facebook. It was comprised of a battery-operated pillar candle in a glass jar surrounded by peppermint candies. I pinned it here.

While I couldn’t find green peppermints, I recreated the pin and it was really sharp. Usually Pinterest ideas fall flat, but this one is solid gold.

And when Christmas ended I wondered what else I could do with it? So I started shoving various candies into the jar. For Valentines Day, I did candy hearts. And for Easter I did peeps (Satan’s candy) and jellybeans.

In the summer I filled it with seashells and at Halloween I filled it with those little candy pumpkins. And in Autumn I can fill the glass container with tears because Autumn is the worst.

I have the timer set on the candle to come on at 5pm and turn off at 11. I have to replace the 2 C batteries every few months. And I haven’t broken the glass jar yet!

If you do this, be sure to do what I do and fill them with candy that you will never eat!

Return of the Mac

Early last week, the lovely Kristen sent me a link to an event on Facebook – Return of the Mac. Joey McIntyre from NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK WAS COMING TO MY TOWN FOR A MEET AND GREET! He’s promoting his new comedy, “Return of the Mac,” debuting on April 12th on the Pop TV channel.

You guys know I was am still a very huge NKOTB fan, right? How could I resist? The RSVP list popped from 100 to 200 to 250 to 300 people in a flash. And I thought about it and I was GOING to not go … but …

From my Snapchat that morning.

Kristen works for a local newspaper and she was going to cover this event, which included a small pre-event where local bloggers could meet him and ask a question. And she could use an assistant to take the names of the people in the photos that she was taking to go along with her interviews.

I love that woman. Read More
