Each Halloween my husband & I enjoy a good, healthy pumpkin-carving contest {this tradition goes all the way back to one of our first dates}. Unfortunately he usually puts my carving to shame. This year, my approach is simple & creative: thinking outside the stencil & incorporating other materials that I have on hand at my house.

"Local Yocal" - Thanksgiving Point

Pin It!
Since we are a family of limited means - and since we live in such a wonderful place - I enjoy "stay-cationing" in my own back yard. Once in a while I like to share a favorite place with you {just in case you're new to the area - or if you haven't discovered my favs}. Although this may seem like it, this is not a sponsored post. 

This "Local Yocal" loves Thanksgiving Point!

How to Tailor a Men's Dress Shirt to a Slim Fit

Pin It!
I have darling sons who happen to be very fit & slim. They get it from me I guess their dad has something to do with that. Anywho, they love the new fitted dress shirts. Christian is required to wear a uniform shirt at work that is made for more of a middle aged, muffin top mature man. It fit him in the collar & in the length of the sleeves, but that was it. His work shirts were driving him nuts, so he turned to The Sewing Queen {hey, if I can't be a Disney princess, it works for me!}. 
Here's how I took in his shirt:
