Happy Book Lover’s Day

One of my favorite things to do is to read. I have been an avid reader for as long as I can remember. I picked up the habit from my mom who used to read a lot as well.  Are you a book lover, too? If so, you might be pleased to hear that today is Book Lover’s Day. So […]

Lilla Rose Flexi Pin Review – Help a Family Adopt!

Someone I love is struggling with infertility and it is an issue that is near and dear to my heart. When I heard that a couple named Jasmine and Luke were dealing with this issue and that Jasmine was selling Lilla Rose products to help raise money to adopt a child ($20,000 goal) I got right on […]

Fun with Colortime Crafts and Markers

I recently shared with you that I still like to color. That is very true, but my kiddos love to color and I have endless boxes of markers, colored pencils, and crayons to prove it. We recently tried out a craft from Colortime Crafts and Markers and my little coloring fiends were very satisfied. I was satisfied too because the […]

Absolutely Perfect Dumplings

I love soup. I would eat it regularly if my husband was on board (alas, he is a soup-hater). I think the best soup I make is my vegetable noodle soup which is so very delicious. One day I will sit down and put it into recipe form so that I can share it with […]

My Big Bottom Blessing (Book Review)

I have read more books about weight loss and health than I care to remember. Some of the books were profound while others were silly. Some offered realistic advice, while others were flat out ridiculous. Some books treated our bodies like evolved machines while others reminded us that we were created by a Holy God. When I […]

Arizona Skies

Have you ever seen the Arizona sky? During monsoon season we get some amazing clouds and the abundant dust sure makes for great sunsets.  Arizona skies are hands down some of the most beautiful skies around. Here are some pictures I recently snapped.  Arizona’s desert skies are stunning murals crafted by the hand of God. These pictures really do not […]

Adorable Beggar

My kiddos and I were out braving the heat at the Phoenix Zoo yesterday. The summers are usually slow at the zoo since many of the animals will not venture out of the shade and roam their enclosures. However, the heat did not stop one cute critter. Along one of the hottest and steepest areas of the zoo, our […]

Danze Faucet Review and Giveaway

I admit to being a kitchen snob. I do not have a Better Homes and Gardens budget but I do like the things in my kitchen to look nice. The kitchen is one area where I believe in using only high quality products and investing some time and money on design and functionality. So when I got the opportunity to […]

2012 Holiday Season Movie Preview

One of my favorite things to do is to go to the movies. The recent shooting at the Aurora theater was a terrible act and caused so much tragedy for so many families. We just went to the movies yesterday and I couldn’t help but think about those movie fans who lost their lives in the theater. […]

Mott’s Medleys Fruit Snack Review

We eat a lot of fruit around here and I am not too inclined to buy fruit snacks. My kiddos just love them, so I do sometimes buy a box here and there. My main objection to them is that fruit snacks are usually full of artificial garbage, especially dyes. We avoid food dye most of the time so I was interested when […]
