Merry Christmas, dear readers!  I hope you all get some quiet time this season to rest, reflect and enjoy.  For me, that rest and reflection time begins when school ends.  Santa Claus came to my preschool first thing in the morning this year.  And so did all the mommies.  And when they left 45 minutes later, and my wee preschoolers realized that they still had a whole day at school and were not leaving with said mo...

It's Christmastime, and I'm not fooling around.

Ok, you guys.  Bustle insists that I blog about this.  Christmas is my all-time favorite holiday.  I love it the most, and the holiday season brings on a kind of strange mania in me, where I can't rest until all of my many and wondrous holiday tasks are complete. 

The only other time I get this kind of weird OCD is when I pack for a trip.  But I don't enj...

Well, here we are!  It's our first sponsored post.  Please enjoy this Mother's Day Gift Guide we put together for the Liquidation Channel.

Every Mother’s Day, I find myself looking for new and meaningful ways to tell my Mom just how much she means to me.  Flowers and candy are always nice, but they can get old after a while; I always want to find something really outstanding that she’ll remember year after year...

I realize as I’m writing this that I am still delinquent in delivering Bustle’s now EXTREMELY late birthday present, so I’m hoping her ever generous, good grace will extend to me once more, as she reads this post.

Last weekend hailed the yearly spring spectacular that is my sister’s birthday!  Actually, my sister has been pretty low-key about her birthdays for years now, but I can never forget the elaborate themed b...

With so many lists of things to go do, see, and make this holiday season, we here at Bustle and Vim thought you might enjoy a more relaxing list.  Instead of those New Year’s articles that seem to constantly scream, “You! Improve Yourself/Your Life/Your Home!!!  Do it now!”, I’d like to second Bustle in my suggestion that you take this time and ENJOY it.  We love you just the way you are.  And in that spirit, I pre...

First of all, hats off to all the good little bloggers who continue to faithfully post during this Christmas season.  Maybe next year Vim and I will do that.  Maybe Vim and I will become full time bloggers with ads.  And a book deal.  Or not.

And now I would like to assure our gentle readership that here at Bustle and Vim, there will be no posts about How to Lose Weight During the Holidays.  There wil...

I was inspired to try this Meyer Lemon Bundt Cake by a recipe at FoxesLoveLemons.  I tinkered with it a bit, as is my fashion, and the result was a dense, but delicately flavored cake that would be perfect for your Mother's Day brunch...and with coffee later...  and as an unsuitable but delicious breakfast for days after.  I'm just saying.

 Since Meyer lemon season is coming to a close, I've included a sta...

Stumped for ideas to wow Mom this Mother's Day?  Don't worry, Bustle and Vim have got your back!  

Presentation:  it's not everything, but....

If you're looking to make an impression, presentation counts.  And one easy way to take it to the next level is a beautifully assembled gift basket.  Way better than a gift bag!  Bustle blanched when I suggested this, but I promise you won't need etsy-level crafting...

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  

I actually made these cupcakes for my sister's birthday, but they work for St. Patrick's Day as well.  Super easy to assemble, the only trick was getting the rainbows to stand up the way I wanted them too - especially in the often humid Texas weather.  I tried both frosting (not stable enough) and marshmallows (didn't look enough like clouds) before I hit on the answer.  Below is a step-by...
