REMINDER – Keep Your Mind on the Wheel!

REMINDER – Keep Your Mind on the Wheel!

Many of you will be traveling the next few days by car, some near, some far. Regardless of the length of your trip, please remember to keep your mind on the wheel when you drive. There is no text message that can’t wait, no phone call that can’t wait, no tweet that can’t wait – you can always pull over to the side of the road if there is an emergency. Also remember that you need to pick a designated driver before you begin your holiday festivities if there will be alcohol served. You don’t want your holiday to be … Continue Reading →
Energi To Go – Review & Giveaway

Energi To Go – Review & Giveaway

I love my electronic gadgets and I always have some with me. Apparently this is a hereditary thing because Taylor loves his electronic gadgets and always has some with him too. Well, maybe it is contagious too because we have been sucking Hubby into this same thing lately. Along with all of these gadgets comes the need to power them all. Sure, they all run on battery, but we use some of them a lot and can run the batteries down quick. We need more power! Energizer and their Energi To Go products arrived today and I know they are … Continue Reading →
The Christmas Day Menu

The Christmas Day Menu

Christmas Day we are having guests. When we first wake up, Taylor, Hubby, and I will open up our gifts from Santa and each other. Then later in the day Hubby’s parents, my parents, and my brother will be coming over. We will have our big meal late in the afternoon and open a few gifts and just relax and enjoy each other’s company. I’m thinking maybe we could get some Wii contests going and work off some of the meal too. Christmas Eve is at my parent’s house with my dad’s side of the family and it’s all types … Continue Reading →
Aqua Forest 2 Game – Review & Giveaway

Aqua Forest 2 Game – Review & Giveaway

I love the accelerometer in my iPhone (the iTouch has it too). You just tilt the iPhone and it moves things around – so cool! Now I found a new game that uses that accelerometer, Aqua Forest 2. This is one of those games that just sucks you in and lets you just relax for a few minutes while you play and take a break from your day. The object is to move little drops of water off of leaves and flowers into your goal area. While it is fun to play, it is also really pretty to look at. … Continue Reading →

MyValidas.com Review & Giveaway

We are a cell phone only family having dropped our land line telephone earlier this year. I have no regrets in doing that at all. Since we do rely on our cell phones so much and we use the extra features available though I always want to get the best deal to keep our rates low but still be able to use what we want. Honestly, I wish cell phone companies would have a better all-inclusive family package with all the options – by better I mean cheaper. There is a new service called at MyValidas.com that will analyze your … Continue Reading →

Dove Self-Esteem Project

Dove Self-Esteem Project

Lately there is more talk about the ways advertisers are portraying women and girls in the media. More criticism about the editing and trying to make everyone so “perfect” looking. The thing is, what they are losing is character in women and girls. They make them look phony and “perfect” with no wrinkles or scars or one eye lower than the other or of different heights and weights and shapes – that doesn’t appeal to me as a consumer I know. There is a ridiculous “perfection” image out there for young girls to try to meet these days and as … Continue Reading →
