Ms. Elaine Kneeous

Jennifer is a one in a million stay-at-home mom. (More like one OF a million stay at home moms!) She graduated from a liberal arts college but there is nothing liberal OR artsy about her. She is married to Kevin Fischer of This Just In, and together they have a beautiful young daughter Kyla Audrey. In no particular order she loves dogs, wine, a good bargain, her family, pizza, and entertaining. Follow her blog of all things miscellaneous including but not limited to cooking and baking, entertaining and party planning, being a mommy, and homekeeping.

How much do you spend bribing your kids?

Kyla has a cute little ceramic princess piggy bank that she got from Santa a couple years ago.  She fell in love with it and desperately wanted it, so I told her she could ask for it for Christmas.  We have the tradition in our home that Santa only brings one gift, and a modest one at that.  I have my reasons why.

Culinary yes-yes #85

Last week I admitted that I’m NOT a trend-setter by any means, and that I FINALLY caught on to cake ball/cake pop mania.  Yeah, it only took me a few years.  ;-)

Thanks, Festa!


We’re really looking forward to going to Festa Italiana this afternoon.  Naturally one of MY favorite reasons to go is the FOOD.  Oh.  My.  Goodness.  From wonderful Italian wines to cannoli that seem to be made by seraphim, I’m never at a loss for great treats.  And thanks to a fantastic website, I can figure out my eating schedule in advance.

What did Scott Walker do this week? (07/19/14)

What did Scott Walker do this week?


Governor Walker made some key points this week:

Unemployment rate for June in WI is 5.7% - best since Oct. 2008 & well below US rate.

WI created 32,300 more jobs in our 1st 42 months than were created in Gov. Doyle's 1st 42 months.

So far, 21,050 net new business entities have formed since we took office (our goal was 10,000 by 2015).

2014 unemployment insurance claims through Week 27 are running lowest since 2000.

The same team of professionals that worked for Gov. Doyle advised us on appropriate security levels. We follow their lead.  Attending the National Governors Association meetings this weekend and seeing all of the security details for Governors from both parties is a reminder of that things have changed over recent years. I, like most Governors, take our direction on security from professionals in the state patrol.

That last one is important because liberals are critical of the Governor’s increase in security. Highly ironic given liberals created the chaos at the Capitol. Their threats and intimidation caused the need for heightened security. Governor Walker had this great line when questioned about this by reporters:

"Have you been asleep for the past three years?"




In West Allis, Governor Walker celebrated the $3.9 million expansion of Brookdale Senior Living Community that creates 202 new jobs.
