Rayovac’s new Advanced High Energy Alkaline batteries

We go through so many batteries in our house. So. Many. I cannot even begin to count how many times we are refilling the kids’ games with rechargables, replacing the Alkaline in our flashlights and how many batteries I keep as spares for my Nikon flash. I am so excited to announce to you that […]

Not so ‘Wordless Wednesday’ – 6 years old & first surgery

My baby boy (6 1/2 years old) has his first surgery coming up. He has this mark that popped up on his face. What we thought was a mole, is called Frepmon. He said it’s VERY rare and isn’t even online to search for and he’s only seen one other case in all his years […]

Starting a MaxClarity Challenge

#DIY Camera Purse Bag

Last Fall, I was in the market for a new camera bag, but after looking around and even buying a couple of bags that were made specifically for camera purses, they just weren’t all that I wanted. I wanted a purse, that looked like a purse, but something that would be able to hold my […]

Kidz Bop 21
