Sex and the City 2 – SHEva night out!

Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary Trip

by Jodi McLean As promised, I finally visited the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary today, and it was a really enjoyable afternoon!  I can’t wait to go back with Amy and her kids.  I think they will love it.  (Once you get used to the non-captive birds who do fly-bys that are a little too close for [...]

SHEva Playlist recommendation 5.26.10

by Jodi McLean I heard this song while driving today, and thought “what a great theme song!”  I was checking things off my to-do list…things I had been putting off, or dreading, or maybe the place I wanted to go was just too far away to justify going right now. So, I went to the [...]

by Amy Plouf My hairstylist is a gifted woman. I have gone to her on and off since 1998. The off being when she worked in a really fancy salon. I get a little uncomfortable at those places that offer you wine and you have no idea who to tip. Anyhow, I always leave there [...]
