Cranberry Themed Appetizers & Drinks
This year is the first year, I am not making a Christmas dinner (but I am bringing gifts). Instead, I am making appetizers to bring to my sister’s house and mother-in-law’s house. Appetizers are not my comfort zone. I am always the main course girl and everyone else brings appetizers.  Instead of wondering what to make, I went to...
A Healthy Lunch for One
I am not a doctor or a health professional but I do know that when I eat better, take my supplements, exercise and get rest, I feel my best. That is a no brainer, right? For years, I’ve taken supplements and my doctors have always recommended that I take a vitamin D supplement to help with season effective disorder. It’s...
Stonyfield Organic Fruit Snacks
My children have always loved those fruit chewy gummy snacks. You know the ones I’m talking about, right? Well, I think my kids have always loved them because they feel like they’re eating candy. The issue is, the sugar content and ingredients for some of those fruit chewy gummy snacks aren’t so good. In fact, some of them are...
It's that time of year when I shave almost daily and that says a lot because I live in where it snows most of the year!  I am wearing shorts, bathing suits, dresses and skirts with the warm weather and the last thing I want is for my legs to be hairy and gross looking! This means shaving cream...
Valentine’s Day Lemon-Lime Cran-Raspberry Drink
With Valentine’s Day around the corner, I’m trying to plan a special dinner for my family. Valentine’s Day is my husband’s birthday so I like to make an extra special dinner to celebrate the love of my life. One of the things I’ll be serving with dinner is a special Non-Alcoholic Lemon-Lime Cran-Raspberry Drink. Something the entire family can...
Teaching 3rd grade is an adventure. Each day I learn something new. I haven’t had one day where something funny doesn’t happen that makes me giggle out loud or brings on a full fledged belly laugh. My team of 3rd grade Michigan Virtual Charter Academy K12 teachers often have me in stitches and when I want to cry because...
Does anyone suffer from allergies? I don’t but my daughter and husband sure do. I never thought that when I had my daughter I would have to go to extreme measures just to keep her comfortable from the irritating and sometimes painful symptoms of allergies and asthma. My daughter has suffered from severe eczema which is in part caused by...
This is the time of year that my daughter always gets sick and comes down with croup. This year isn’t any different but maybe next year will be. I contribute her illness to her allergies and the change in the weather. We are cooped up inside during this time of year because it’s typically cold out. Now I am...
Do you ever look back on your parenting and the choices you made and wish you could change them? I do. While I believe I’m a good parent there are choices I made when my daughter was younger that I wish I would have done differently; one of those choices would have been my choice in diapering. I hopped on...
I am not a dog expert. In fact, I am timid around most dogs I meet and most that know me would say I’m not really a “dog” person but I love MY dog! I’m completely into doggie class with Ellie, I love shopping for her and buying her new toys, sweaters (she is short haired and gets cold),...
I love tomatoes. Did you know that when the tomato was first introduced in Europe they called it the "love apple"? The rumor was that it was an aphrodisiac but I'm not sure that's really true. I like how it was referred to as an apple because I often eat my tomatoes like an apple. In college it used...
My face is always dry. I just have that type of skin and yesterday my Origins Face Lotion was gone. Gone. I have become hooked to the stuff ever since it was sent my way. I didn't even share it with my new Green Guru, Mckenzie. I kept it all to myself (shh)! I've been wanting to try something...
Sippy cup! Sippy cup! Oh, where is my sippy cup!?! Taking all of my daughters “usual” sippy cups away (bad plastic—evil BPA) and replacing them with this sampler pack of cups that I purchased and some great free ones, per request for this review, left her a little confused. It was for her own good though. Seeing that...
Last night we attended a super bowl party and for me it was just to socialize and get the kids out of the house. No offense but I'm not a football fan but the food and conversation is always nice. My daughter was having a blast playing with this Elmo guitar. She loved it because of the size and...
