Many parents view their children’s excess weight as an aesthetic issue. They worry their kids won’t be liked in school, won’t be picked in gym, and won’t be pursued by members of the opposite sex. According to the American Institute of Cancer Research, parents have a lot more than looks to be concerned about. New research shows that about 100,500 new cases of cancer are caused by obesity each year.
Obesity is known to cause many deleterious health effects but this study is one of the… Continue

Using fragrances or perfumes for a variety of uses dates back 4,000 years. One of the oldest written pieces of information on the use of fragrances is from the 9th century; a book written by an Arabian chemist, which contained more than a hundred recipes for fragrant oils, salves, aromatic waters and substitutes or imitations of costly drugs.
The number of fragrances available on the market today are numerous. People from all over the world are… Continue

I recently conducted a little interview with my friend Traci, owner of Sampler Village. Back when Cinnamon Hollow and Latonia’s Dream Shoppe (my first website) were gift shop sites, I participated in a similar service with business cards. I sure wish Sampler Village had been around then, so I could offer actual… Continue
With all the recent talk of the stroller recall I thought this was a good time to put together the 2nd stroller we bought last weekend. After going back and forth through the stroller aisle in Babies R Us and trying out strollers ranging from $100 to upwards of $300 we decided on… Continue

Isn’t our goal as parents to help develop problem solving skills in our children? I think as busy moms, we often forget and take the easy road and solve problems for our kids. By repeating this habit of giving answers to our children instead of allowing them the opportunity to figure something out on their own we are really creating MORE dependent children rather than creating… Continue

Cupcakes are yummy, right? Just thinking about them makes my mouth water. That sugary sweet cake-y goodness that seems to melt in your mouth.
Well, what would you say if I handed you a cupcake and told you it was made with breast milk. Would you eat it then?
Ok, I'm a mom. I tried the breastfeeding thing for a whole, oh, two weeks. Yeah, it didn't last long. Even though it didn't pan out for this momma, I still highly admire those who do nurse. And who do it for a long… Continue

I am going to get back to blogging about my life on a state park soon I promise. Actually, I had planned on posting pictures from our Civil War Weekend last weekend, but Pioneer Woman threw me for a loop!
After her posting about her book signing in Little Rock, all that sweet red head did was put a link to my post about my trip to meet her and KABOOM! My little blog was HOTTER than my hot park ranger pictures.
To all of my new followers, thanks for joining the chaos. And,… Continue

While I was throwing a load of laundry in the other day, my mind had a flash back to times when I didn't always use laundry soap for every wash. Back in my pre-divorce days, we had little money at times for groceries so I had to come up with other ways for other things.When I ran out of laundry soap, I would use dish liquid, and at times add some baking soda to the wash. We changed clothes every day to every second day so they weren't dirty.
While thinking of the laundry and dish liquid, I… Continue

There are a few things in life that I simply cannot do without. General Hospital, Sharpies and shoes to name a few. There is one other item that is very dear to me and I am very particular about, Macaroni and Cheese. I grew up on Macaroni and Cheese. If Dad was making dinner there was a one in three chance we would be eating Mac and Cheese. The other two options were… Continue

We had a little bit of fun tonight. While sitting on the couch we noticed that Mommy's shirt was moving up and down. Our growing boy is getting big enough to start having visible kicks at 25 weeks! So I took out my iPhone and recorded a couple of videos. Yay for babies!
