One Day 2014: An Instagram Photo Challenge

Yesterday, I joined the Hollywood Housewife for a photo challenge called “One Day.”  The premise was basically to document in photos — the mundane, the big, the little, the messy, the “real” from morning to night for one day.  We used the tag #OneDayHH to keep up with everyone’s pictures — I challenge you to go […]

A Rant on Vacuuming…

I’m not sure what it is about me and vacuum cleaners, but we don’t get along. I have yet to own a vacuum cleaner I’m in love with.  Granted, I have never shelled out $300-$400 on a super-duper variety, but I haven’t owned all cheap ones either.  My current Dirt Devil vacuum probably cost a […]
