IdealBar #Giveaway Meal Replacements Enhanced Hunger Blocker ENDS 8/18

Idealbar on table

It has been my rule of thumb for over a year now, that EVERY morning I eat a protein bar / nutritional bar for breakfast!  The family has donuts, I have a bar, family eats out in a restaurant, I have a bar.  This can be very hard to do sometimes, but it keeps my daily calories down.  When it comes to breakfast, I can really pig out before I know it! Ever heard of IdealBar, meal replacement bars?  This company, IdealShape.com and I met on … [Read more...]

FloRider Water Park Attraction Sucks Off SwimSuits


The boys and I have spent two days at the water park this week!  It's been lots of fun, but I've had enough for awhile.  Yesterday we went and the heat index was at 107 degrees and the concrete got VERY hot.  Of course, no one wanted to wear their water shoes and this morning, my feet are punishing me for it.  The wait time for the larger attractions is about an hour of standing in line, so we did each one of those once on the first day and then … [Read more...]

Author Lorna Schultz Nicholson – Check her out!


Summer is meant for fun, for a break away from school for the kids.  Time for families to spend time with one another and time for some Summer reading to keep those kids on top of their game.   This Summer I am also finding time for reading as my kids are old enough to read on their own.  It is nice to have reading time where everyone can grab a book and jump into it.  The main reason I have now found time for Summer reading is because I have … [Read more...]

Keep The Weeds AWAY!

pool weeds

It has been awhile since I have worked in our flower beds.  I had surgery a few years back on my knee, which held a long recovery time for me.  Kneeling down and working in flower beds just wasn't anything that I looked forward to, so I abandoned my flower bed duties. This year for Mother's Day my husband bought tons of flowers for our home.  He planted tons in the front and my son and I planted the remaining ones in our back flower beds.  It was … [Read more...]

FREE Ebooks On Amazon

Reading ebook at the beach.

Finally, Ebooks have made it into our household.  Since I am stubborn and "old school" in many ways, I have fought the idea of reading an electronic book until this past week.  I was away for vacation and thinking that laying out in the sun with a great book sounded like an excellent idea.  I had a lounge chair and the perfect day for laying out in the sun, but since I was away from home, I had no books with me.  One of my blogger buddies had … [Read more...]

Does Your Guy Accessorize?

Presented By Nice Laundry Does this infographic represent your man?  My guy would carry the bag and my son would love those socks, but my husband is definitely a plain sock type of guy!  As far as the gear, he'd use every bit of that and he can't go anywhere without those sunglasses of his!  He has a watch very similar to the one above, and will wear a tie if called for, but if not, he's more of an open button type of guy.  Women love new … [Read more...]

Spend Quality Time With Your Family

Travis Dad working

We visited family in Kentucky last week and were about to leave back home for Texas, when the porch windows for the Grandparent's new enclosed porch came in.  The back porch project was a big one, so my husband volunteered to stay longer in order to help get the project underway.  We all pulled together and got started by installing 6 large windows.  Next came flooring and drywall the following day.  Travis and Dad had a good time working … [Read more...]
