My daughter and I attended a prescreening in exchange for this review. Our love of the movie is all our own.
One of the things I love most about my job as a blogger is being able to see movies before they come out in theaters. This also scores me some cool points in the mom department as well. So it is a win win for me. I will have to say that I was hoping and praying that I would get the invite to attend the prescreening of Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 2. This movie is one that all of us in Read more [...]
I love crafting. There is something quite special about a handmade gift. When you know the time and skill of a real person have gone into an item, you treasure it more. I’ve been looking exclusively at handmade gift ideas for the forthcoming holiday season. You don’t always have to make it yourself. It’s easier than you think to find good quality gifts made right here by hand in the USA.
One of my favorite natural and hand finished materials is leather. It’s so versatile. Products like Read more [...]

Now that my girls are growing up, I was thinking the other day that I don't want to look back and regret not spending time with them. It is not often that I get to spend one on one time with each of my daughters but the opportunity to sample some yummy Thanksgiving goodies from La Farm Bakery help make a memorable one on one Mom/ Daughter Day. Thanks La Farm.
So when I was offered the opportunity to check out La Farm Bakery in Cary, I immediately asked if I could bring a guest, since it is a little Read more [...]
This is the time of year when things can get a little bit hectic. Fall commitments are in full swing and days are shorter – in what seems like more ways than one. Add in a quickly approaching holiday season, and it can seem impossible to get everything done.
And it seems like the diets go out the door during this time of year. I don't know what I was thinking when I decided to start my get in shape phase of getting healthy now.
When we feel over-busy, it can be tempting to abandon good habits Read more [...]

I will have to say that with the holidays right around the corner I am always looking for ways to save. One of the ways I have found is that I buy presents all throughout the year. It makes it easier plus I get a lot of things on sale or clearance so that saves me a lot of money.
Another think I have done is to cut out drinking soda. Now that doesn't mean I don't get caffeine, because Read more [...]
“My mommy was provided with a “I and love and you” trial package to facilitate this review, all opinions are my own.”
Allie again. I have been very busy lately as our house has been full of company. And I love company. I always greet them at the door and go totally crazy over them. I know nothing about personal space just ask Lyman or Dylan.
But I am here today to talk to you about the yummy new food and treats that my mommy got from the UPS man. Technically I know that Read more [...]

It is no surprise that I loath going to see doctors. First because the wait time is normally so long and I sit there thinking of a million other things that I could be doing while I am waiting and second because the last thing I want to do when I don't feel well is get up and get dressed to go out. And let's not even talk about driving during this time.
I have recently started undertaking a very industrious Read more [...]

This year the National Retail Federation is expecting Americans to spend more than $600 billion dollars just Read more [...]
I will have to say that I absolutely love this product. The vitamin packets were easy for both child and adult to take. Since we have had to double the amount of vitamins that my youngest daughter takes to offset the effects of the drugs she is on for seizures, these were totally perfect for her. She doesn't feel like she was taking a ton of pills now and actually likes the taste of packets. I will have to admit that I even tried them and I liked them as well. Why did I try them you ask? Well.....

The last few weeks have been very tiring as I have been working to get some things in place for the holidays. As I alluded to in one of my blog posts, I am going to have surgery the date is not set yet but I do go for my consultation on the 20th of this month. The recovery can be short or long it all depends on how much they need to do and whether or not I will have to have multiple surgeries. So with that said I am putting a call out for guest posts and contributors to help provide you my readers Read more [...]

Had you ever been challenged to do something and even though if it is a little out of your comfort zone, for some reason you lose your mind for a moment and agree to do it. Well that was me a couple of weeks ago when I was asked to take part in a blogger challenge.

This year the holidays are not going to be like the holidays in the past. This is the first year that my dad won't be with us. I now know how my husband feels every Christmas that he is away from his family in Mexico. It is a little different as he can always get on a plane and go see his parents but I won't get to see my dad until I am called home.
