Four Hens and a Rooster

Author: Kristen Daukas

#WordlessWednesday Remember being 16 during the summer? Maybe you had a job (I did.. American Express NROC!!!), maybe you didn’t but the one thing you most likely did have was your license. Was there a better freedom than being able to go and do what you wanted to do, when you wanted to? No more waiting for mom and dad to take you someplace.. all you needed was your license, a car and a willing partner in crime! Love seeingmore

It’s no secret that we binge watch a lot of shows in this house. 5 summers ago it was Weeds. 2 years ago it was Breaking Bad. Last year it was Sons of Anarchy and currently it’s Orange is the New Black (no we haven’t finished.. we’re trying to NOT binge watch a show for once…). But those are all VERY adult shows that we really can’t watch with the kids so, often, we’re either watching a movie or anothermore

What IS a Vacation? The Rooster and I went out to dinner last night to meet up with a friend that he had graduated high school with 29 years ago. It was a nice evening and we were talking about the possibility of them relocating down to our fine state of North Carolina after her daughter graduated from high school.

We looked at the original pin and decided that we wanted to do it a little bit differently, so we headed to Michael’s for the necessarymore

What are your favorite shows & movies you’re sharing with your kids? When the girls were younger, it seemed our TV was on all. the. time. One or both of us have always been fortunate enough to work from home and while that’s great for raising kids, sometimes those kids needed entertainment that was provided by someone/something other than mom or dad. Whether it was Mackenzie watching Blue’s Clue’s (original, please) or the Powerpuff Girls (my all time favorite), Sydneymore

Here’s the obvious statement of the day: times are tough for almost everyone. Those who never used budgets to manage their money have started to and those who had them before the recession have tightened them up. Some families have weathered the storm with little financial impact and others have had the wind knocked out of their sails. Personally, we’ve done “okay” the past few years in this God awful recession.. not great but we’re still standing (so far). We’vemore
