Make Your Own Catnip Cat Toy #StreamTeam


Ryan and I have been celebrating our four legged friends by visiting cats and dogs at our local animal shelter. You can see more pictures in this post here and this other post here.

The kitties LOVE them and we would really appreciate that." Well, this is right up our alley - an EASY craft for kids, for a good cause - the rescued … {Read More}

Saturday Giveaway Linky Link Your Giveaways 1/17


Can anyone else relate to that cartoon? My best friend once said I looked like a Ninja Warrior without eye makeup.  Not to mention, the one day I went to work w/o eye makeup years ago, my boss said, "Wow, you look really tired." I will never think going w/o eye makeup is a good look for me. Maybe I will get a tattoo of some eyeliner and be done with it  - or a least a semi-permanent tattoo. Has anyone done it and liked the results? Please link up your giveaways below. Check out my two and … {Read More}

Carefree RV Resorts Affordable Florida Vacation Homes #LiveCarefreeRV


Thanks to Carefree RV Resorts for sponsoring today's discussion. I'll never forget the year we took the kids to Disney.

If only we could take a trip to sunny Florida every winter. It would break it our winter so nicely, and give us all something fun to look forward to. As a matter of fact, I would LOVE to have a vacation home in Florida,  a … {Read More}

The Brilliant World of Tom Gates & Timmy Failure We Meet Again Childrens Books Giveaways 2/05

So, I am on the hunt for similar type books for reluctant readers - books about boys in school, funny books with some sketching in them to keep my little reluctant reader interested. This is what parents of reluctant readers have to do. Get their hands on material that their kids will like, whether … {Read More}

Wordless Wednesday Tom Brady – He Can’t Even…..#WW


If you follow football at all, you would know that the Patriots won last Saturday's game and it was a VERY CLOSE win. If they win this Sunday's game against the Colts, they are off to the Superbowl! There are a lot of Tom Brady haters out there and that's fine. I am a Patriots fan and I do like Tom Brady. Despite that, when my friend sent me this image I laughed out loud! This image was taken from an old video (much to his chagrin, I'm sure!) Big game on Sunday! Go Patriots! (and Tom, no … {Read More}
