About Stacy (the Random Cool Chick)

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance and I chose to become a SAHM and WAHM - I love every minute of it. We added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension to our family. We have an eclectic mix of pets: dogs, cats, birds and fish. I love to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, I take on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. My favorite, of course, is making my own wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway. I blog about the joys of parenting, family, friends, life, love and anything else that strikes my fancy. I do enjoy doing reviews and giveaways for products I use, believe in and can stand behind.

  1. this is one of my favorites – the roadblocks aren’t there to prevent you from achieving what you want; they’re there to show you how much you really want it.

  2. Lee Iococca’s is a great quote!

    I may save that one for my classroom wall. He spells it very well for the kids.

    One of my favorite student’s once said – her dad told her to always ponder – what else can I do when she thinks she is done to always go above and beyond. And… she always does. This is why she is one of my memorable students.

  3. Great quotes! Thanks for sharing and have a great Sunday… ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. These are great quotes. Lee Iaccoca is the man, although I have to say, he had things pretty good. He graduated from the same college as I and I am sure that gave him a leg up.
