Plank Seafood Provisions: The best oysters I’ve ever had!

Thank you to Plank Seafood Provisions for inviting Omaha bloggers to visit during Happy Hour to see what you have to offer, which turns out to be A LOT! Thank you again!

Plank Seafood ProvisionsTuesday evening my sister agreed to watch the kiddos over dinner so I could head out and get a bit of social time. What better way to get social time, then meet up and network with a bunch of amazing women who also blog in our area. I’m absolutely impressed with the talent of these women. Along with that talent is a wealth of knowledge and fabulous personalities. It was a chance to relax and experience Plank Seafood Provisions for the first time…and it won’t be the last.

Pumpkin Patch 2014

We seem to be building more and more family traditions every year, and I love it! It’s something I just realized we were doing in a time when I was thinking we didn’t have any traditions! We find something we love doing and do it again the next year, however it seems that the majority of our traditions happen in Autumn. I’m excited to see what traditions we’ll come up with in the years to come and through the other seasons, but for now I wanted to share a bit about our annual Pumpkin Patch visit!

Talk Like a Pirate Day 2014

Did you celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day yesterday?

You know, that awesome day that comes around once a year on September 19th and you get to run around dressed up like a pirate saying things like Arrrrrr, me matey’s and Ye scurvy dogs!

Yeah, I know, pirates have a fairly negative history. We’ve been learning about them in our homeschool co op. This session’s theme is pirates and I was selected to take over the Pirate History class. I’m learning a ton! There was also a bunch of great information about both past and present pirates shared in some of my online homeschool groups. It was a fantastic day for learning about pirates!

Anyway, you know we celebrated, or I wouldn’t be writing about it. So I thought I’d tell you how our day went.  First of all, we dressed up like pirates. Krispy Kreme was giving away a dozen glazed donuts for every person who dressed up like a pirate (with their requirements met, of course). It was easy, and they gave us all the tools we needed, just in case we were lacking.

I received a sample of the product for review purposes.Roaring Spring

When Roaring Spring asked me to review their paper products, my first thought was, hey, we homeschool, we ALWAYS need more paper! When I finally received the box from them I was floored by what they sent! Amazing variety in notebooks, it’s ecofriendly made from recycled and sugarcane fibers. They even have paper made out of poo! I’ve heard of that stuff, but haven’t actually seen it. I’m not sure if I’m happy or sad it wasn’t sent to me! Continue reading

It’s not often that I fall in love with a review product. I mean, sure, I really like a lot of them, but this time, I’m in love! The Mighty Pop popsicle molds by Sunsella is exactly what I’ve been wishing for! No more mess. Okay, less mess as long as the kids don’t turn it upside down. But a heck of a lot less mess than the old popsicle molds I have with the handles that get frozen into the liquid? I really don’t know how to describe them other than the old way! Continue reading

6 Benefits of Drinking Water: Wellness Challenge Update

This shop for Ice Mountain Water has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone but the benefits of water can be shared by all! #CollectiveBias #Ad6 Benefits of Drinking Water #shop

Last week I started my Two Month Wellness Challenge. The challenge is all about observing my health habits, good or bad, and making conscious choices to improve the not so good for me choices. You know, things like drinking more water and exercising more. It’s also focused on learning what works for me and ditching the rest. Why keep what doesn’t work or makes me miserable? Continue reading
