Style, form and function meet at the new Cambria Suites HotelStyle, form and function meet at the new Cambria Suites Hotel in Maple Grove, MN.

Spring time slim down

Spring time slim downI’m getting a late start on this week’s article because I just came in from riding my new bike (got it from Costco for a good deal-it would’ve cost at least $100 more at Dick’s Sporting Goods). I couldn’t resist the beautiful sunny weather and warm temperatures. Spring is definitely coming and that’s my cue to put my fitness activities into high gear-I’ll soon be peeling out of my long heavy sweaters, and I need to make sure that I can comfortably fit back into my warm-weather clothing. After all, who has money to buy a new wardrobe just because of gaining a few pounds??

So much to discover: Start cashing in on the web

So much to discover: Start cashing in on the webAfter a recent Sunday morning church service, Stacie and I struck up a conversation in our fellowship café. She informed me that she is a professional blogger and thought my readers would be interested in following her dollar-stretching blog at While I was excited to hear that one of my Christian sisters is finding creative ways to make money and help others, I was really excited to hear that the focus is on discovering bargains (a woman after my own heart, sniff).

Forfeitures: Next Steps

Minnesota law allows law enforcement to seize your property in association with certain designated offenses. A forfeiture action can be taken against many types of property believed to be associated with criminal activity.  For example, law enforcement may seize and attempt to forfeit cash believed to have been transacted during drug-related crime or an automobile used in conjunction with a DWI or prostitution.  Regardless of the value of the property, the police must have a valid reason for seizing it, supported by facts and evidence.

The love series: All the single ladies (and men)-Valentine's Day is for you too

The love series: All the single ladies (and men)-Valentine's Day is for you too“She made me feel that there was something wrong with me because I am not married!” my girlfriend confessed to me about her well-intentioned cousin who was trying to set her up with a man with whom there was no love connection. Although I imagine the heart of this concerned relative was in the right place, I must stop and ask you, the reader, a question “What’s wrong with being single??” Here is the answer “Absolutely Nothing!” So here’s my next question, “Then why do we sometimes make our single friends and family feel otherwise?

The Love Series part 2: Keeping it simple on Valentine’s Day

On special occasions my husband, Lonnie, and I usually don’t exchange big gifts. What we really enjoy is giving and receiving greeting cards from one another. Whether the occasion is a birthday, an anniversary or Valentine’s Day, we take pleasure in searching for just the right card that conveys our genuine sentiments.  Our simple, yet impactful tradition began many years ago. I remember receiving a special card from him.  Moved by the message, I turned to him and asked, “Do you really feel this way about me?”  He assured me that he did and then he explained that it took him a long time to pick out the card, because he had to find one that said exactly what he was feeling (I love that man, y’all!).
