Goodbye Jeep – Hello Reliable Vehicle!

On May 12th of this year, just 2 months ago, I bought a 2007 Jeep Commander. I LOVE this vehicle! Man, it’s sharp as can be and what’s crazy is that the gas mileage was better than my minivan. We had some small things happen here and there with it since we got it, but […]

Back to School with Apple – Buy a Mac & get a free iPod touch!

With hubby and Tucker about to be going back to school, we are already in that ‘Back to School’ mode. Most people may think about Back to School with things like backpacks, crayons, khaki pants, lunch box and those busy school schedules. Well, school items go much deeper than just papers and zippered backpacks for […]

Adorable Kids Clothes from Bit’z Kids NYC!

When it comes to kids clothing, I like to buy things that not everyone out there has. I don’t want to send my child to school in the same outfit that every other child has. Recently, I saw a company online that their clothing and their entire style really sparked my interest: Bit’z Kids NYC. […]

Be an Instant Rockstar with Paper Jamz – Giveaway! (Closed)

Do you have a future rock star in your house? We do, but I can say that we are not about to rush out and buy our 5 year old a guitar. Think of the expense and I really doubt any 5 year old would be responsible enough to take care of such an expensive […]

Cheap Spam Attempts

I take a lot of time to moderate comments on my website. The next time that a company or individual leaves a comment on one of my posts, on my blog, linking it back to your company in the attempts at free advertising (links on my posts with a keyword to your website or company), […]

Beads & Bracelet Making Supplies – Free to a good home! Leave a comment!

Bob Evans restaurants’ famous Wildfire Sauce

Wordless Wednesday: 7 Years! ♥



I was going through pictures and saw this one.. I giggled so hard! Miss Kambry had a Gerber puff stuck to her face. :heart: Tweet

Johnsonville Share Your GrillVille Contest!

Just this summer, we got a new grill. Before then, we had an old, handed down, t-shirt tied together grill (literally). We have always loved to grill out and with summer here in full force, we love to grill out even more. While I haven’t been a big fan of brats, with the help of […]

Lawry’s Get Grilling Kit Giveaway (Closed)

We love to grill out any chance that we get, rain or shine. I was always told that if you have a truly good steak, you don’t need a dipping sauce for it – it just needs to be marinated and cooked properly. We had the chance to try out some things from Lawry’s for […]

Adorable & Affordable Reusable Shopping Bags: Envirosax it!

Confession: I will admit that I am not totally green. I care about our environment, but as a busy mother, sometimes being ‘green’ just isn’t in the books for me. Well, that was until now. In my Jeep, on the door, I have a collection of reusable shopping bags. Why are they here? These bags […]

Lindsay Lohan: It’s called respect. EARN it. Don’t buy it!

I have always been a fan of Nancy Grace. I am a CSI, Law & Order, live trial watcher… type of person. I think I should have gone to school for investigative science. I love it! I have been keeping up with Nancy Grace and the whole Lindsay Lohan chaos. Jail-bound starlet Lindsay Lohan’s shocking […]

Wordless Wednesday: Reflection of Smiles


Cascade Complete: It’s just a complete #FAIL!

Yes, I went there. I don’t like to, and have never, posted a negative thought on a product… ever. When I bought two tubs of Cascade Complete, at a pricey $13.00 EACH, I must have lost my noodle. I had read amazing things about these and thought I would try them. I knew I would […]

Debt Resolution Options May Be Too Good to Be True

I will admit that when I was in my early 20’s, I was careless and didn’t care about anything in the world – but me. With this said, in my late 20’s, I had a nice debt added to my name and my credit. I never thought anything about it, until I went to trade […]
