Land’s End is the LIVING END

Why isn’t “the living end” a phrase anymore? It’s like “dreamboat”. I wish we still said both of those. Anywhoo. Remember my Ode to my Lands End Swim Suit last year?

I Actually *Heart* My Inbox!

Every morning I wake up and check my email. (Not first thing, of course.) I look to see if any amazing emails have come my way, delete the random newsletters that I’m pretty sure I’ve unsubscribed like 1200 times and then I click on my DEALS! folder. And this my friends, is where I get […]

Then I challenged him to save more money than me. If you remember I saved between $78 and $102. THAT IS PRETTY STINKIN’ GOOD. My husband is a […]
