The end of my Nutrisystem journey – goals…

As we come to the end of my Nutrisystem journey I have to say I am a bit sad. Nutrisystem has made my life so simple that now is the true test... to see if I can implement the tips and tricks that they taught me into real life. Truth is that over the last week or so I have been testing myself to see how I would do after my Nutrisystem journey and I think I will do pretty well. The biggest thing is remembering not to overindulge and to really keep … [Read more...]

Perfect time of year for quick and easy homemade quality chili

It is that time of year again. The time when the weather can go from a bit chili to hot in no time. What that means is that when we wake in the morning, here in Texas, it could be as low as 60 then by the evening it could be in the 80's... Or it could be hot all morning, then rainy and cool in the evenings. This to me is perfect chili weather. But between school, activities, and carpooling, I don't seem to have the time to really make home-made … [Read more...]

Choosing the best dog food for your pup… #GetHealthyHappy

As you all know, I took Precious to the vet a couple of weeks ago to get some ideas on how to be a good pup-parent. The whole appointment went really well and I learned a lot of valuable information. One of the most-important things to do as a pup-parent is to make sure you are feeding your pup the correct food. You see, one food is not always the right food for every pup. The first place to look for information is from your vet, of course, and … [Read more...]

Slow Cooker Rustic Italian Chicken recipe & slow cooker giveaway

To say our days are busy is a huge understatement. From the time we wake in the morning till bed, we are on the run. We have two kids in elementary school and the third in PreK. After dropping kids off, I often hit the gym, then complete my daily errands. Once those are done, it is time to pick kids up and drive either to swimming or soccer, every-single day! Yup... it is not fun; but we do what we do for our kids, right? Does this mean that we … [Read more...]

Meet Birdie – our interactive pet bird

My kids have been begging me for a new pet. I am unsure why, but for some reason they want something new. When at the pet store the other day they asked if we could get a pet bird. I just laughed thinking of how our little Precious, our fifty-pound pup would react to our brining home a pet bird. Of course I had to shatter their dreams by telling them that there was no way we would get a bird as a pet bird is a lot to take care of. They were so … [Read more...]

Why I need Life Insurance & a Twitter Party with Prizes…

Did you know that September is Life Insurance Awareness Month? Well, the other day I had the opportunity to sit in on a chat with the Savings Bank Life Insurance Company, also known as SBLI. Oh my goodness, to say that I learned a lot is a total understatement. Between you and me I have never thought about why I need Life Insurance. I am not sure why; but it has never crossed my mind. I guess, like most people I just assumed it was … [Read more...]
