Social Media

I have been blogging for a few years now. It seems I should know anything and everything about blogging but I don’t. I’m not sure I even utilize social media the right way. I really got into trying monetization but that is definitely something you cant take a break from. If you choose to monetize your blog.. stick with it. I have a facebook fan page for this blog.. but I figure if I post here why do I also {Read More}

Cable or Satelite

Our television bill went up the the other day. I was shocked at the prices charged for tv! We had cable and the bill got so insane we switched to satellite. Now they are doing the same thing. I called the cable company and got a sweet package deal. There you go satellite!!! I called and they said call back between 7-1. The next day I called back around 11:30 my time (PT).. they neglected to tell me 7-1 EST.. {Read More}

Extending Cyber Monday!!

Can’t shop now? Shop tomorrow! We’re extending our #CyberMonday Event through 12/1.

Every year I work on our family newsletter. It takes time to lay it out and then figuring out my photos and wording. Then I have to print that and still shop for cards and such. Its really a whole process and I was thinking this year I would love to simplify it. My husband says I don’t have to do it, but last year I overlooked someone and they contacted me to get their card/letter. That’s a great feeling. {Read More}

Keeping Track

Within the past week I have noticed too many amber alerts for missing children. Sadly one was found dead but the others are still missing. I was talking to my daughter in law about options. We chip our dogs.. why not the kids? I looked up tackers and found a few so we can track them. Each family has different needs for these trackers so make sure you check out a few brands to see what might fit your family needs. {Read More}

Fuzzball Removal

What a cute winter coat is what I thought when I first saw this jacket. After the first time it was washed the sleeves and hood had fuzzballs appear. We tried plucking them off but each time it was cleaned, the fuzz seemed to get worse. Years ago I had a sweater/hoodie that did that and I tried one of those shavers things to get the fuzzballs off. A friend of mine told me to just use a razor. A {Read More}
