Giving unique gifts that will be well appreciated by the recipient is so very important to me. I have some very fun and quirky friends and family that I love to shop for and Uncommon Goods gives me great options that are hard to find elsewhere! They have great gift ideas for the man in […]
When a winery says, “Can we send you wine?” You don’t turn that down. Snoqualmie Vinyard did just that a while back and challenged me to make a fun craft with up-cycled wine corks. Oh have I got wine corks! Corks for days! If you read the blog occasionally or follow me on Instagram or […]
I was surfing facebook today, as per usual, not really paying attention. Then, out of no where, my friend Anne from Midlife Boulevard posted a link to something glorious. Something amazing. Something that could not be taken lightly. A recipe for… wait for it… Wine. Fruit. Snacks. No really. Wine Gummies. Boozy Gummies. These ain’t […]
mmmmmm Wine! what a way to start a post, right?! It’s early, you have your coffee next to you as you are browsing the internet and then, BAM! I mention wine and your ears perk up. 😉 Well, folks in Colorado and Minnesota should take special note of this post. My favorite wine company, Black […]
While browsing one of my favorite websites-Anthropologie-I came across these darling polka dotted glasses. I LOVE all things polka dot, and anytime I can incorporate them into my decor, I do. But nearly $60 for four glasses? I don’t think so. I have kids. And marble floors. That’s a really bad combo that means certain […]
My eBay Collections were curated as part of my collaboration with eBay. Christmas is almost here! If you are like me, you have some shopping done, but are struggling with what to get those hard to shop for people on your lists. My husband is probably one of the hardest people to give a gift […]
It’s no secret, I love wine. I especially love a nice glass of vino after a long day of answering “why?” all day, telling the kids that they can’t spray paint the puppy and making 3 different dinners for 3 boys because they each are so picky it makes my head spin. Yes. Mama loves […]
I wanted to title this –How to Choose the Perfect Wine… to relax with at the end of the day when the kids are going ballistic and you just need a break and have 5 minutes to use the bathroom without 3 kids and a husband asking where you went the entire time and when […]
Choosing the perfect bottle of wine can be hard, especially if you aren’t much of a connoisseur. I’m no expert myself, but I know a good bottle of wine when I drink one. Here are eight wines I love and what occasions they might be great for.

Wait, what?! Yeah, you read that right. So totally not related to anything, but I was at a great event last night with the Mile High Mamas crew. When the girls get together, who knows what we will start talking about. Impotent Monkeys apparently.
Started out innocently enough. The birthday gal Rajean was talking to me about wine. I love me some wine. I was telling her about how my new love is for “unoaked chards” and how I didn’t even know what that meant, but they taste devine! Then it reminded me of a wine that I love that’s local to Colorado.

My first post about California Wine’s wine of the month club told you all about life as a mom and how a glass of wine can relax me at the end of the day. Well, they just sent me another couple of bottles and this was perfect for entertaining! My friends often times like to […]
I love wine. That’s no shock to anyone here right?! Well a good friend of my Husband & I makes THE best sangria ever. Hands down. He’s given me his recipe but no matter what I do, it just doesn’t taste the same. So, I’ve decided to just come up with my own. I was […]
Cheating on the no words again. I suck at the whole “wordless” part. Anywho… If you are a mom and your husband works late or travels a lot, you understand my recent dinner.
I don’t know if I could be called a Wine Enthusiast, but a fan? Definitly! Anyone who knows me knows this wine love is fairly recent. About the time my youngest was born, correction, about the time my youngest developed a hellacious bout of Colic, I turned in my martini and beer glasses for wine […]
My boys and I love to build gingerbread houses, but if it doesn’t come in a kit with everything for me, it won’t get done. I love kits. Kits for knitting, kits for baking, kid crafty kits, you name it, I probably bought it at Michaels! So here is our Gingerbread House And the cute […]
Another great recipe from my Dad and Grandma. My favorite thing about this one? It uses wine! Looks, sounds, smells like a 5 star restaurants meal, but it is easy to make and surprisingly kid friendly. Bon Appétit!
Have you heard of them? They had a place in Estes Park and just moved it down to The Orchards in Thornton/Westminster (I-25 & 144th). This place is high class in a super fun and casual setting. I went to the pre-opening with a friend of mine who is good friends with the owner. They […]
