31 Days to Build a Better Blog – Day Three

I am still playing catch up on the Spring Cleaning Challenge with Mariana over at Riding With No Hands.  Hey, nobody said they had to be consecutive days.  Today’s assignment was to promote a blog post. As in, promote a post that I wrote.  Eek! I could promote the heck out of someone else, but […]

Review of Larabars – Super Healthfood in a Bar

I simply cannot go without sharing one of my absolute favorite “handy” healthfoods with you.  For the most part, I like to bake my own treats for my family and for myself, but sometimes for convenience reasons we all have to grab something quick and on the go.  Of course for many people that leads […]

31 Days to Build a Better Blog – Day Two

I don’t know about you, but the older I get the more I seem to have to remember.  Actually, I take pride in my great memory, but I think there is so much between my own personal stuff to things for my kids, and not to mention that I have to also remember everything for the […]

Follow Friday Feature

I am so excited to share my Follow Friday Feature with you this week!  I have been active on Twitter for the last year pretty consistently and a whole lot more in the recent months.  There are many people that I interact with on a daily basis(even make a point of learning their “real” first […]

31 Days to Build a Better Blog – Day 1

When my friend Mariana over on Twitter threw out the idea of doing some “spring cleaning” on her blog with an invitation for others to join her, I immediately clicked her link to check out what she had going on over at her site, Riding With No Hands(don’t you just love that name?).  She wanted to revisit […]

What is it?! Wordless Wednesday!

Normally, I don’t put words for a “wordless Wednesday,”(obviously), but this time I am because I thought this would be a fun one!  What do you think this is? Maybe some of you know already, but for those who don’t I thought it would be fun to guess!  Thanks for stopping by!

Meatless Monday! A Few Ideas!

My family is pretty much “meatless” every day of the week, with the exception of pizza night for my husband and older son(they always have pepperoni, but it’s uncured so there are no nitrates or nitrites) and I usually try to prepare fish once a week, which my husband doesn’t like so he gets a […]

It’s Our Anniversary!

My husband and I have an anniversary coming up and depending on who you ask we have been married for 18 years or about five years.  Those who consider themselves funny say five because we got married on a leap year, February 29, 1992, to be exact.  At the time, it seemed like a good idea because […]

Sustainable, Organic, Fair Trade…..Oh My!

Ever wonder……..I started to realize that we are bombarded with so many different phrases or terms in this attempt at a green lifestyle. Have you ever found yourself seeing one of those words and wondering “what exactly does that mean?” Well, today I will start with sustainable– basically this means to use our natural resources […]

Follow Friday Feature

This week was so easy to come up with a Twitter friend that I recommend for following.  I decided to do it this way so I could have plenty of space(140 characters or less is not enough).  Here is my first post where I explained why I am now doing “follow Friday” this way.  If you […]
