Life is Good® at The Crown Shop

I don’t know about anyone else, but when I find a good, soft t-shirt that I love, I keep it for decades! Several years ago, someone gave me a Life is Good® t-shirt for Christmas, and I don’t think I have taken it off since. These are the softest, most comfortable shirts I have ever […]

Spring Cleaning

To say that my house could use a good spring cleaning is an understatement. With three kids, a husband, a dog, and a cat, I’ve always said instead of the “3 second rule”, we have the “3 day rule”. If you find food on the floor, it’s yours for the taking! As I look around […]

Spring Break 2013

My family and I are headed to the beach for spring break this year and we can’t wait! Every morning this week my 4 year old has asked, “is today the day we are going to Orange Beach?”. While it is exciting to think about a vacation, I also know that it requires a lot […]

My Guilty Pleasures

We all have our Guilty Pleasures don’t we? Here are a few of MY Guilty Pleasures! Wendy’s Guilty Pleasures 1. Brown sugar & vanilla body wash by Archipelago is one of my favorite guilty pleasures! I can’t explain to you how decadent and fragrant this stuff is. I could shower for hours with it. The […]

Flying Sharks?!?

We just got in one of the most unique toys I have ever seen…it’s a remote-controlled flying shark that is about 4 feet long! These things are unbelievably realistic. Even one of our canine-staffers, Belle, was fooled by it. She was going crazy barking at this thing. My husband had the remote control, which meant […]

I have: Razorback pom pom gloves, Razorback watch, Razorback earrings and necklace, Razorback wine glass (for tailgating) and ,of […]

Shop for Your Grandparents at The Crown Shop

Let’s face it. Grandparents are good at giving. There’s that whole unconditional love thing, as good a gift as there is. It comes in various forms. When Dad flips out over our Junior’s “borrowing” of the car and subsequent “fender bender,” grandparents are there to soften the blow. When all that’s needed is a hug, […]

We love our Lampe Berger!

If you want your home to smell wonderful, and get of musty house or pet smells, Lampe Berger is just the thing. Lemonflower is our favorite, but there are many other delicious fragrances. All of the flavors you can imagine to brighten up the smell of your home. The Lampe Berger doesn’t mask odors, it […]

Rednecks are people too…

I’m not sure when it happened, but it seems the term “redneck” is now more a term of endearment rather than a put-down. Everyone from the high school cheerleader to the lawyer next door wants to be one. When I was a little girl, we were taught to be afraid of these people and now […]
