Movie Night and Drinking Coca-Cola Freestyle #AMCandCocaColaFreestyle

This post could be alternately titled, "Phil and I go to see a movie in the theaters for the first time in forever" or "That time we saw Fury on the absolute last night it was playing."

Best of the Best: Free Printable Father’s Day Cards, Part 1

I decided to find the best free printable Father's Day cards for dear ol' dad because I had so much fun hunting down free printable Mother's Day Cards a month ago--any excuse to browse Pinterest is a good excuse. :-). Along the way,  I discovered that there are a LOT more free printable Father's Day cards than there were for Mother's Day. My theory is that all the bloggers making these freebies are women who make cards for their hubbies, but hubbies don't make them for their wives. Come on, men, … [Read more...]
