Haunted Halloween Tour

I was invited to participate in the Haunted Halloween tour. It sounded like fun, so I jumped at the chance! There was no compensation involved.

What’s your favorite part of the Halloween season? Even if you don’t celebrate with costumes and trick-or-treating, do you like seeing the pumpkins on your neighbor’s porch? Part of the reason why I enjoy Halloween is that it’s usually the first cold week of fall here in northeast TN. So, those shivers down my spine are legit! [Read more…]

Two of us drool over the chocolate confections, while the other two go for vanilla. If you can relate to this cupcakery obsession, then read on.

To Burp or Not to Burp: A Guide to Your Body in Space by Dr. Dave Williams #giveaway

Disclosure: I received this book to enjoy; post contains affiliate links. Opinions shared are mine.

My children love to read fact-based books. Trivia of all types are popular here, especially with my 12 year old daughter. She starts many sentences with, “Did you know…?” My son, however, is fascinated with bodily functions. That’s typical with 2nd graders, so I’m hoping it’s just a phase he’ll outgrow. For now, I’m grateful that we can fulfill his potty talk desires with an entertaining, yet educational, book like To Burp or Not to Burp: A Guide to Your Body in Space by astronaut Dr. Dave Williams.
