I’m having a “Me” Party. Happy Half Birthday to Me!

When I’m feeling down. I listen to “The Muppet Movie” soundtrack. Specifically the duet between Amy Adams and Miss Piggy. Does anyone else do this?  Probably not. Either way, I love having “me” parties.  Especially when they’re impromptu.  I got all gussied up just for me!  I wore my favourite clothing just for me!  I … Continue reading

Trying Oil Pulling: One Month, One Mouth, One Smile

When I first heard about oil pulling, I was really excited. I loved the idea! Swishing oil around in your mouth for twenty minutes? Bring it on, I can totally handle it. How hard can it be?
