Wordless Wednesday Rescue Readers at The Animal Shelter #WW

_DSC0012

We can't have pets due to allergies and asthma, but Ryan loves dogs and cats - cats in particular. I found out about a program called ACE which stands for Animal Care and Education. ACE Central Massachusetts is a non-profit organization of volunteers dedicated to the care of animals in need. They are committed to educating the school children and families of Central Massachusetts about pet care responsibility. This group offers a program called "Rescue Readers" where kids can go visit the local … {Read More}

I received compensation from McDonald’s in exchange for writing this post. Although this is a sponsored post, all opinions are my own. The holiday season is busier than ever for our family. For those days we just don’t have time to sit down for a meal and we need to eat something on-the-go, I take the boys to their favorite place to eat on-the-go food - McDonald's!

Red Rose Tea Single Serve Cup Teas Prize Pack Giveaway 1/1 #HolidayGiftGuide

redroseteacollage

I have to be honest, I am a true coffee drinker. As soon as I roll out of bed and make my way to my lap top, I stop at the Keurig to make myself a cup. When 10 o'clock rolls around, I am ready for cup number 2. I don't drink tea daily, but I do enjoy a cup in the afternoon on occasion. I've had Red Rose tea in the past and enjoy their black tea. Red Rose is now offering three of their best selling black teas in the single serve cups for single serve machines like the Keurig! I received tea … {Read More}

Wordless Wednesday Parade and Tree Lighting #WW

_DSC0231

Last Friday night we braved the below freezing temperatures to attend the parade and tree lighting in our little town. We ran into my friend Cheryl and her family just before the parade started. When you live in a small town, you can expect a small (but cute!) parade. Not a bad thing on a cold night. The main attraction for us was to see James in the marching band. They played Christmas tunes as they marched by and members of the color guard gave out candy to the kids. Here is one of our … {Read More}

#Snacksmall with the Popchips Caramel Popple

caramel-popple

This post is sponsored by Popchips. Opinions expressed are my own. Do you remember when I posted my recipe for chocolate covered Popchips? I was able to recreate the recipe over at Roch Brothers for the Munch March Madness blogger recipe challenge. These were a big hit among the customers who voted. My competitor made nachos, a delicious, savory Popchips snack. My Popchips recipe was a bit messy - melting the chocolate, dipping the chips and hardening the chocolate in the freezer. But it was … {Read More}

Collage.com Aluminum Photo Panel and Custom Ornament Giveaway 12/29 #HolidayGiftGuide

_DSC0293

Ornaments hold special memories for our family. We have ornaments dating back from when Grant and I were kids hanging on our tree. I especially like photo ornaments. We have a 2001 Winnie the Pooh photo ornament with a baby picture of James in it. It's fun to reminisce about when they were so little! Collage.com has just launched some new photo products (including ornaments!) just in time for the the holidays. I had the opportunity to create an aluminum photo panel and a custom ornament to … {Read More}

It is such a privilege for me to host children's book giveaways from Candlewick Press. Time after time, I am impressed with the the quality of books that I find at Candlewick!
