My kids are 3 and 1. They are not too young to start saving and to start teaching them the value of a dollar; or even a penny, a quarter, any amount of money. Munny Journey can help both the parent and the child. Munny Journey is a Keepsake Journal for Baby’s First Money. It […]

Kodak Easy Share

What do you think of when you hear Kodak? I think of pictures, quality, reliability, among a few other thoughts. I have to say that I am so impressed with how far Kodak has come with their digital cameras! They came from one of the first digital cameras (which I owned way back when) that […]

Fun times in blogger land

I love to type. I love to blog. To me, it is therapeutic and I have fun. I love what I do and that is what matters. When you love what you do, it makes getting your word out there, that much better and you are heard even more. I will say that I type […]

Flavor Debate ’08 with Baskin Robbins

Ice cream! Ice cream! We all scream for Ice Cream! I remember, as a kid, going to Baskin Robbins every week with my family. Talk about a treat! My specialty was one scoop of mint chocolate chip with one scoop of Pralines ‘n Cream on a cone. I loved and still do order this mixture […]

Galco Holsters and other police needs

I have a good friend that is on the police force. I asked her if I could ride in the front of her police car, but she wouldn’t let me. Maybe next time. LOL! She has all kinds of gear for her job and I am amazed at all that she needs. If you are […]

Acne Treatments

I don’t know if it is the weather, the season, stress or just my changing skin and age, but I feel like I could use some acne treatments some times. My face breaks out and its just wacky these days. Ugh! I have been looking for some solutions to try out. Hopefully I can be […]

Cell Phone Service

Is there TRULY a reliable cell phone company out there? Ugh! I am so sick of not being able to use my phone because of NO service. No bars and I roam when I go get groceries, just 20 miles away. Seriously annoying!! We had a great service, but then we moved, to what I […]

Fun at the Piano Bars

When hubby and I lived in Dallas, we used to go to some of the fun and fabulous Piano Bars that they have. Oh, so much fun! One of our first dates was at one. If you have not had the joy of having a date night out at a Piano Bar… You are missing […]

Umi Shoes

With as fast as kids grow, this comes new clothes and of course, shoes. Did you know that a child’s foot changes dramatically in the early years — starting out broad, fat, and squarely shaped, then developing into a more conventional tapered foot? The growth of a child’s foot is sporadic, uneven, and can happen […]

Cook in confidence with LeCreuset

I love to cook! Up until now, I have dreaded the clean up of my pots and pans. When I first started making my first meal in my Le Creuset Saute’ Pan, I was honestly expecting my food to stick. Why? Because this is what I am used to with my current pots and pans. […]

Joys of Construction

We live in a pretty small town, I guess you could say. There is not much of a selection for anything here. We have very limited shopping, hence why I decide to drive 30 miles away for my needs. What about construction companies? I wondered the other day what they would have to do if […]

Fall Styles from Eleven Collection

I am so incredibly giddy with excitement over the Fall collection of shoes from Eleven! We spend so much time (literally!) looking around for the perfect shoe that is long lasting, made durable, looks great and feels good on Tucker’s feet. There is nothing more annoying that clunky and heavy shoes. Eleven offers the best […]

Goosebumps DVD Collections ~ CONTEST!

I remember Goosebumps from when I was younger. They are still around and still going strong! Tucker loves his Goosebumps DVD collection! I thought, at first, that they may be too scary for a 3 year old. Not at all! They are so much fun to watch. We watch them during our quiet time, before […]

Mead Writing and Learning Fundamentals

When you hear the word “Mead”, what do you think of? I think of school. I remember my notebooks that I had. I remember taking my Mead paper and notebooks to school when I was a kid. I just asked hubby what the word “Mead” brought back memories of notebooks. I smiled and showed him […]

Spot Shot Instant Carpet Stain Remover

With kids, we can never be too prepared when it comes to keeping our carpets clean from ‘kid stains’. When I received the Spot Shot Instant Carpet Stain Remover, I had to test it myself. It WORKS! How often can we say that a product works for those kid stains like food, chocolate or gooey […]

Love You Forever

We recieved the best gift of all time from a good friend, Meagan. We are really in to storytime in our home and every time I read “LOVE YOU FOREVER”, I cry. This is the best book I believe I have ever come across. It hits me hard, for more than a few reasons, but […]

Family Driving Safety

Before having babies, I never really thought a whole lot about the need of a power steering rack. Having little ones in my car, I am very concerned with their safety. Having a reliable steering rack for my van is SO important to me! Make sure that your vehicle is ‘family ready’ by visiting […]

Best Sleep Ever

I have been begging hubby to let us get a new mattress set. Ours just kills my back. Ugh! After looking around, prices are just outrageous these days! Well, we started looking online and saw a company called Overnight Mattress. Overnight Mattress is a memory foam mattress manufacturer who sells direct to the public. You […]
