Toy1

This post is not sponsored. I haven't even thought about the upcoming holidays, until, that is, I received this 2014 Toy List from Family Fun. I love checking out these types of lists and this list in particular gives me some great ideas for Christmas gift shopping. Hope this list gives you some ideas too! ;) Flying cars, a DJ studio, and a fashion show that comes to life – these are just some of the toys that have been named winners in FamilyFun Magazine’s Toy of the Year Awards!

Celebrating Mini Milestones with Caramel Apples & Netflix #Stream Team

_DSC0114

This September was a busy month for us. Not only did the kids go back to school, but I went back to work at Ryan's school part-time as an aide. It's been 10 years since I've worked outside of the house, I guess that would qualify as a mini milestone! This is James first year in the Marching Band and Grant's first year as Ryan's soccer coach. Later next year, Ryan will be going to Nature's Classroom for a whole week! That will be a milestone for him. Other than his grandmother's house, he has … {Read More}

Wordless Wednesday Morning Glories #WW

_DSC0094

I love these Morning Glories in our planters on our deck. I planted them years ago and they come back every year! I thought they were annuals, but this particular type is clearly a perennial. I don't have much time to maintain them - so they are my type of hearty plant. An InLinkz Link-up … {Read More}

Minecraft for Dummies Series Books Giveaway 11/11

9781118537145 cover.indd

This is Markus Persson. He is the Swedish video game programmer and designer responsible for my kids spending hours on my lap top playing a little game called Minecraft. Now I know who to blame and I thought you guys might like to know too! ;) To say Minecraft is a craze is an understatement! James needed a new lap top for school, but like many other kids, he spends a much more time playing Minecraft compared to using the lap top for school work. He has a fancy "gaming mouse" too, of … {Read More}

Smith Brothers Wellness Prize Pack Giveaway 11/6

_DSC0012

I received the above products from Smith Bros to facilitate this review and host this giveaway. Opinions expressed are my own. I've been working at Ryan's elementary school since September. I love that I am getting out of the house, working with kids, and the hours (only about 3 each day) are wonderful -no need for childcare. I still have plenty of time to keep up with my blog too. Life is good! One downside that comes with working at a school is illnesses! I see about 300 kids every day at … {Read More}

Halloween Owl Cupcakes

Aren't these just the cutest little owl cupcakes? Ryan and I had a good time making these together. Years ago, I made a version of these but used marshmallows for the eyes. I like these much better and making them couldn't be easier!   Since we are on the subject of owls. Do you remember these Owl Cracker treats? Get the directions to make these Whooo's Hungry Owl Crackers here. … {Read More}

On-the-Go With Jif to Go Dippers Giveaway #MC #GetGoing #Sponsored 11/3

JIF_ToGo_landing_dippers

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence-Central for Jif To Go Dippers. I received a sample to facilitate my review and a thank you item for participating. These days my oldest son James is definitely on-the-go. He keeps a busier schedule than I do. For instance, at this very moment he is rehearsing with the marching band. We dropped him off at 8:15 am. He has a performance tonight and won't get home until about 11:00 pm. He practices twice a week - 4.5 hours … {Read More}
