Megs & Mo Upscale Resale

My daughter and I recently discovered a great new boutique in Tacoma's historic Proctor district: Megs & Mo Upscale Resale. They have an eclectic mix of new, vintage and designer clothes and accessories.  Look for True Religion jeans, Coach handbags, Cole Haan shoes and handmade jewelry by local artists. Owner Lisa has made the shopping experience on Proctor much more fun and fabulous! Visit for more information. Happy shopping!

Simple Living Bargains

On my local grocery shopping trip to Trader Joes I found an interesting new product...whole wheat lavash flat bread. Very good taste for wraps or baking in the oven with butter and garlic. Delicious and very inexpensive for a family meal or party. Also, sweet organic kiwi fruit from California, very good quality. And quite possibly the best fresh grapefruit I've ever tasted, so sweet. Yes, I do have a sweet tooth! Had a taste for lunch! Be sure to venture next door and check out all the clearance bargains at Big Lots in their clearance aisle...lots of great items for the kids...have a good shopping day!

Enjoying the Simple Things in Life...

Everyday we think about all that is going on in the world today...we are blasted with strong statements from every form of news media there is. Less would be more in this case. However, we can choose to enjoy the simple ways of life...if we let ourselves. A great breakfast, a quick walk at noon, and sitting in the warm sunshine in the afternoon. Yet, we tell ourselves we have to hurry around to get everything done? Maybe some of it matters, the rest doesn't. Most of us never figure this out until it is too late...the old saying "stop and smell the roses" has more truth to it than we know. Relax and enjoy the everyday beauty!
