Helping to Detect Breast Cancer Early

Detect Breast Cancer Early with Annual Mammograms

Breast Cancer Awareness is evident everywhere you look. The colors for October have shifted from black and orange to pink, and all for a good cause. The saying "what you don't know can't hurt you" is not appropriate in all situations, and Breast Cancer is one of them. This year I turned the big 4-0. I can't say that I was excited about the event but it didn't bother me like 35 did. I knew that when I got into my 40's a few things would start to … [Read More...]

Creamy Chiptole Onion Dip Recipe & $100 Walmart Giveaway


When it comes to football season nothing is better than a table full of snack foods. I have always enjoyed buffets and potluck dinners.

Going to a professional football game is on my list of things I want to do but for now I have to settle for making our own snacks and enjoying a Sunday afternoon watching football. I am often all … [Read More...]

A Little Animal Alphabet Help


When it comes to our children we want is best for them. We might research what is the best food to give them or how much TV time is appropriate. We definitely want our children to learn. Everything they do from the time they are born until they enter school is a learning process. No longer do we simply send our kids to school to get an education. We purchase games, books, and even TV programs are geared toward learning. One of the basic things … [Read More...]

Easy Stay in Curls with Curl Secret


Last week I was visiting with a co-worker and was amazed at her hair. She usually wore it straight, in a pony tail, or in a bun. I love to work with my hair and I usually wear a different style every day, so I was curious what she did with her hair. It was full of curls and looked great. She said she used the "Curl Secret". I told her I must know this "Secret". Here sister is a hair dresser and had given her one to use. It sounded so easy I … [Read More...]

A Little Halloween Spirit in the Office

Teaching Kids To Make The World A Better Place


If there is one thing (yeah if there was only one) I could change as a parent if I could go back in time it would be about a little thing called XBox. About 3-4 years ago I started having a big issue with my boys spending way too much time on the XBox. I struggled with the fact that they were playing with all their friends and that is pretty much the hang out place of this generation. We won't even get into the games they were playing. It seems … [Read More...]

Bathroom Organization For the Unorganized


Before we bought our new home my husband I use to share a bathroom that was the size of a small bedroom. Honestly it was a big and beautiful bathroom. Sharing it was also not the correct term as sharing usually implies equal halves. It became so bad that my husband moved his belongings into the third bathroom. Yes he moved out of our bathroom to a more organized and tidy bathroom of his own. See I'm not the most organized person, especially when … [Read More...]

Glazed Pumpkin Raisin Cookies With Pumpkin Pie Icing


Halloween is just a few weeks away, the air is beginning to have a chill, and fall is upon us. When I think of fall I think of orange and red falling leaves, pumpkin patches, and scarves. At least that is the image my mind conjures even though I'm currently in flip flops and watching the kids swim in the pool. I love the sunshine and would never leave Florida but I do miss the seasons. This is why in order to trick my senses I like to opt for … [Read More...]
