Starfall is a beginning reading website for young children, mainly aged 3-7. Great graphics and fun games make learning letter sounds easy and enjoyable. There is a paid portion, but the free part has more than enough to keep children busy.
I’m not sure if I’ve made this abundantly clear or not, but I have a serious – and we’re talkingserious – obsession with all things chocolate. So when I heard that drinking lowfat chocolate milk is actually a way that athletes are refueling and rebuilding their bodies after strenuous workouts, you have to know that I was excited.
The first time I heard about this was during one of my early…Continue

Halloween is my favorite holiday. It takes place in my favorite season, I love seeing all the children dressed up in costumes, the candy is plentiful and everyone is happy. My wonderful husband takes our son trick-or-treating and I dress up and hand out candy at the door. But here's the thing:

It is Fall!!!! As you know it is my absolute favorite time of year. Cool, crisp air, the beautiful colors of the changes leaves on the giant oak trees. Baked goods and fire places smelling up the air. Oh and Halloween, the only holiday I…
I have been on a Huge Journey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Since I started this blog 2 years ago I have lost over 60 pounds. This was left over baby weight. I gained 96 pounds while pregnant with Mason.

So I went a little all out for Ricky’s birthday this year. Given how difficult the spring and summer were – and the fact that we barely had any barbeques this year – I just wanted to have a fun little celebration for my little guy turning two.
So…I may have ordered some ponies. But just for the day! Not to keep. Much as my husband would like to have a pony in the backyard.
And yes, that’s true. A hobby farm is definitely on his bucket list. But that’s a story for another…Continue

So, I have this thing during the week. I rarely wear my hair down, because it bothers me when it gets in my face while I’m working. I also have issues with actually styling my hair during the week, because…well, I’m short on time.
To help fix that, I’ve come up with several quick hair dos that make my mornings easier. And also prevent me from looking like the mom who literally just rolled out of bed to take her kid to school.
And because I love ya, I’m sharing one with you…Continue

We all love glowing healthy skin. We do all sorts of things to maintain the youthful glow. Pay LOTS of $$$ for all the "new" products that we thrown at us in all our magazines and on TV. I could shell out a fortune trying them all out. Having worked retail in cosmetics........ Well let's just say old habits die hard.
This post however is not about all the latest and greatest. It is however about some tried and true…Continue

Spiders that is. Yes. It’s spider season. Now I know spiders are good, they eat pests, I get that. But if like me you’d rather they didn’t come inside the house, here’s a few natural spider deterrents - read…Continue
