Food for the Seoul

Feb 4th, 2011

Being adventurous and trying new things does not come easily to me. I have to make a conscious effort to push myself and not be afraid of the unknown. I just wouldn’t qualify as a daredevil. I consider myself more of a homebody and bask in the comfort of my spot on the couch and […]

New Dog, Old Tricks

Jan 11th, 2011

It may be hard to teach an old dog new tricks, but new dogs don’t just pick up on old tricks either. I recently became a dog-owner for the first time in my life. I should probably re-phrase that—I recently became a puppy-owner. What was I thinking? Those Cottonelle commercials make puppies look awfully cute […]

Something Old, Something New…

Dec 9th, 2010

…Something Borrowed, Something Scientifically True— maybe that’s not exactly how the rhyme goes, but I like to make things my own. The traditional wedding phrase, which originated from an old English rhyme, has never been more appropriate than it is now. I have found myself reciting this over and over—each time changing the last “something” […]

I Survived SEMA

Nov 10th, 2010

I’m thinking of making a t-shirt to wear to window film industry events that simply says, “I survived SEMA.” The show was exciting, overwhelming and very educational for me. I learned much about different window film manufacturers and I got to spend some time with installers talking about their thoughts on the industry and products. […]

Tis the Season…

Oct 14th, 2010

The anticipated fall coolness is beginning to seep in to the air. I, for one, am ecstatic. I love the crispness of the temperature, the sounds and feelings before fall football games (I’m an SEC fan in case you were wondering) and the excitement that is a part of the season. I get that nervous—but […]

The Good, the Bad, and the Misleading

Sep 9th, 2010

I consider myself an excellent yard sale shopper. I spent years attending yard sales with my mother and watching her careful eye as she determined what was a good deal and what was just more junk. It was at the age of 8 that I realized what I so desperately wanted at the yard sale […]

Ideas Granted

Aug 4th, 2010

When given the choice between Pepsi and Coke I’ve always chosen the red bottle. Maybe it’s the brand awareness or the history of Coca-Cola or maybe it’s just a matter of taste. Lately though, I have found myself cheating on that red bottle to spend more time with Pepsi. To clarify, I have discovered Pepsi’s […]

It’s Not Easy Being Green

Jun 29th, 2010

While Kermit the Frog may not have been in the window film industry there certainly is some value to what he preaches. Being “green” has taken on so many meanings. For instance, my attempt to be environmentally “green” has left me spending more time with the ceiling fan on than the air conditioning.
