Searching for a Lottery Win and Infographic

Searching for a Lottery Win and Infographic

Are you still searching for a lottery win like I am? Although I do not always buy a lottery ticket, I do buy them fairly often. My feeling is you can’t win the lottery unless you play the lottery. I only buy one ticket per lottery game at any given time. To me, the $1-$2 price is worth the entertainment value of me dreaming of what I will do when I win (you’ve got to think … Continue Reading →

July is National Ice Cream Month Plus Fun Infographic

You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream! Did you know that July is National Ice Cream Month? What a cool holiday to celebrate, pun intended. I do love ice cream, although I eat a super small scoop these days plus a little topping (stay tuned for a Fireball caramel sauce recipe later this month). Hubby loves ice cream, he puts peanut butter on his. Growing up I have memories of my Grandpa … Continue Reading →

Flag Day is June 14: Facts and Infographic

Flag Day is June 14. This day commemorates the adoption of the flag which happened on June 14, 1777. However, it was not until 1916 that the current president, Woodrow Wilson, issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as Flag Day. Then it was not until 1949 that National Flag Day was established by an Act of Congress. Most of us were taught that Betsy Ross designed the American flag, but there is no … Continue Reading →

How to Say I Love You Around the World

How to Say I Love You Around the World

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner so for this week’s infographic I thought it would be fun for us to learn to say “I Love You” in different languages from around the world. Impress your Valentine this February 14 by saying I Love You in all sort of different languages. Another idea that this infographic might help you with would be taking one (or more) of the languages and maybe making a meal with … Continue Reading →
9 Simple Steps for Perfect Makeup – Infographic

9 Simple Steps for Perfect Makeup – Infographic

When I was a teen I was always reading magazines and trying out new makeup and how to apply it. As I got older makeup was not a high priority for me. After my weight loss I did get back into it a bit, but still not like it was when I was younger. However, I think I can use some update tips and steps for makeup these days. I found this week’s infographic, 9 … Continue Reading →
Infographic: The History of Christmas Traditions

Infographic: The History of Christmas Traditions

I know you all love the facts and trivia on the infographics each Saturday. Today I have one from Tree Classics about the history of Christmas traditions. I had to laugh when I read the tradition in Ireland because my Hubby would totally love playing Santa in that country (and he is part Irish). The facts about some of the record setting Christmas trees at the bottom of the infographic are also very interesting. What … Continue Reading →

39 Weeks is Best – Prematurity in Babies Infographic – Prematurity Awareness Month

As I mentioned the other day, November is Prematurity Awareness Month so this week’s infographic (source: March of Dimes) talks about this serious issue. My own son was premature at 34 weeks. The day he was born he had to be transported by ambulance from my hospital to Cardinal Glennon to their NICU (neo-natal intensive care unit). This was one of the best days – son being born – and one of the worst days … Continue Reading →
Dictionary Day – October 16

Dictionary Day – October 16

Raise your hand if you love a dictionary! This was always one of my favorite things as a kid – I would scour through our dictionary not just for the words, but the one we had always had tons of great stuff like atlases, word origins, and so much more in the front and the back. So when I saw that October 16 was Dictionary Day in honor of Noah Webster’s birthday, born in 1758, … Continue Reading →
Pumpkin Patch Infographic

Pumpkin Patch Infographic

It is that time of year, pumpkin time! There are pumpkins everywhere it seems. Carving pumpkins was a tradition in my family for as far back as I can remember. We still do it now. The twins might be a little young to carve their own still this year, but I’m sure myself or PaPaw will create something on their behalf. This pumpkin is from 2006 I believe – I used a melon baller to … Continue Reading →
