As Halloween approaches and I have teens in the house, I have heard more and more about cosmetic contact lenses from both my kids and their friends.  “They are so cool mom, they can make your eyes RED!”  Ummm yeah…. amazing…  I get it to some extent, I was fitted for my first pair of contact lenses as a teen, and I admit,... [Read more of this review]

Is your family on the go?  With five kids, most in sports, we ALWAYS are!  And it never fails… as soon as we get somewhere (or half-way there) I hear the famous words… Can you guess?  “I’m HUNGRY…”   I make it a habit to not purchase much from the concession stands because with our large family, that adds up fast.... [Read more of this review]


grilled ch.

Bread.  I don’t eat a ton of it (unlike my children) but when I do, I like it to be good.  I love homemade bread, but sometimes when I make it, it just turns out too dense for my preference.  I am good with rolls and breadsticks, but a loaf of bread sometimes just doesn’t turn out “right”.    I like the convenience of store... [Read more of this review]


Style: "PimpE"

I have to admit, I do love Back to School Shopping to some extent.  There are many deals to be scored, and I have a bit of a thing for fun office supplies. According to a survey conducted by Survey Monkey in May 2014 among Americans, for nearly one third of North Americans, a return to routine is their favorite part of the back-to-school season. Consumers’... [Read more of this review]

I went grocery shopping yesterday.  Feeding two adults, two teenage boys, two pre-teen boys, and a 5 1/2 year old girl is not cheap.  As our family has grown, I have learned how to feed my family on a budget (and a crazy schedule). When I was in Ukraine, bored one day, I started pouring out all my tips and tricks of shopping and cooking on a budget... [Read more of this review]

 Seriously?  Please tell me this is not happening again… Yes, it is beatiful…  but I am about ready to be done with snow!  We just got spoiled the last couple of years I think.  Thankfully it is a holiday so the kids do not have ANOTHER snow day…  I think we have 5 already  (not sure, lost count). At any rate, we are... [Read more of this review]

Ouch…   It is so frustrating to me when I miss an opportunity.  The other day my husband wanted a specific item from Amazon.  I told him I would order, but then forgot.  The next morning I went to order, and guess what…  It was $15 more!  UGH…  Missed Opportunity.  (He did warn me it was a good price and to hurry… oops!)... [Read more of this review]

I hope you are having a great week!  I feel like fall is just flying by!  I can’t believe it is already almost Thanksgiving!  (of course I couldn’t believe it was almost Halloween a few weeks ago!)  It has been busy around here with the fire, and fundraising, and kids and work and… the list goes on.  I am it is the same for most... [Read more of this review]

Hi friends!  If you happen to love chicken and your slow cooker (my current life saver with our crazy schedule) then you need this brand new ebook just released from Susanne – “The Hillbilly Housewife”  She claims it is her best product so far, and I tend to agree.  Less than $3, and you have more than an entire month of chicken... [Read more of this review]

As of right now… here are some freebies for you.  Remember these deals sometimes expire FAST!  If something is gone, I am sorry.  Also, I have not had a chance to preview these – wanted to get them out ASAP, so no guarantees on how good they are… but for free, you don’t have anything to lose.  Read More →
