McDonald’s – A family favorite; good food for less


If you ask any of my kids where they would like to eat at any time their answer is unanimous; McDonald's. Whether we are celebrating a birthday, out running errands, or even looking for good food for less, after a soccer game the choice is simple, we stop by our neighborhood McDonald's. Take this past Saturday, for example; we spent the morning on the soccer field and by lunch time we were all famished and knew just where to go. Placing an … [Read more...]

Lose the weight-loss excuses & learn about Nutrisystem #NSNation

Nutrisystem week 4

Hello everyone... The other day I was talking to a friend who is a bit overweight. She was going on and on about how she knew she was overweight and that she wished she could lose weight, but that she didn't have the drive to do it. I love this person and wish her the best, but unless SHE faced herself and stopped the weight-loss excuses to make the decision to change, I know she won't. Today, I want to talk to you about that light-bulb moment … [Read more...]

Decorative & effective yellowjacket & fly traps

OrnamenTrap Yellowjacket Trap

I don't know about you, but I dislike bugs... I mean really, really, really dislike them. I am unsure what it is about me that bugs like but it is crazy; I could be around thirty people and by night's end, I will be the one covered in mosquito bites, bee stings, and even be the one swatting the flies away. People, I am not crazy. I shower regularly nor do I wear any type of perfume, yet bugs of all sorts are attracted to me. This is why I was … [Read more...]

Purina Beyond

If you follow my blog than you know that our family grew about six months ago, as we adopted our Precious from a local shelter. Since her arrival things have been so awesome. Yes, at first it was a bit crazy getting her trained and used to our lives, but she fit in very quickly and is not just our dog, she is a member of this family. She is the first to greet us when we come in the door and the last to say goodbye when we leave. We love to play … [Read more...]

Help keep music & art in schools with the 20 Days of School Adopt-a-School program

Field Day teaches sportsmanship

Have you heard about the "20 Days of School" Adopt-a-School program? Let me take a step back and tell you about why keeping extra-curricular activities in schools is important to me. At the end of the last school year I was blessed enough to be able to spend the day at Little Man's school to watch the field day events. For anyone that does not know, Field Day is a day filled with races, events, and competitions for each school child. I remember … [Read more...]

Hypo-allergenic skin and hair care from Daddy’s Health & Skin Care Giveaway

Daddys Health and skincare giveaway

I have an amazing Hubby. He works full time running our family-owned home improvement company, then comes home and does what he can to help around the house. He is the first to take out the trash and carry laundry baskets up and down the steps. And somehow always finds the time to play and rough-house with the kids. Oh and did I mention that he also reads to them almost every night and tucks them in? Yup, I admit it, I am so blessed. Oh and on … [Read more...]
