Last year, my daughter attended the Tennessee Christian Teen Convention in Gatlinburg, TN.  She absolutely loved the experience, saying it was a life-changing weekend.  One of the things she loved most about the convention was the amazing music! The worship songs stay with her even now.  I understand this, since I still catch myself singing favorite church camp worship songs.  In the Alpha / Omega CD, Kutless performs many wonderful, familiar sing-along worship songs that will surely be favorites for your family!   We’re excited to listen to this CD in the car during our daily commute.

Sonic Christmas Blast DVD makes a great stocking stuffer

Disclosure: I received the Sonic Christmas Blast DVD as an NCircle Ambassador. Opinions shared are mine.

My son keeps asking for random animals to join our pet army.  His latest request — a hedgehog. While I admit they are super cute, the answer is no.  The Sonic Christmas Blast DVD is about as close as my little guy’s going to get! [Read more…]

A few weeks ago, my beloved sister took the kids to see the movie Leap!  My daughter loved the story line and said the characters had meaningful humor.  She also appreciated the artwork and soundtrack.  Overall, she adored Leap!   When I was invited to share the new family night theme from Ovation Brands’ portfolio of restaurants – Old Country Buffet, Ryan’s, Hometown Buffet, Country Buffet – and Furr’s Fresh Buffet, I couldn’t wait to tell you about it!  [Read more…]

Finish® Powerball = my lucky day #ad

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Finish®. The opinions and text are all mine.

A domestic goddess, I am not.  If I won the lottery, I’d gladly pay a full-time housekeeper to busy herself with the dishes, dusting, and such things.  Need evidence?  It took me a year to figure out that the green “low rinse” indicator light on my dishwasher did NOT mean I was using an eco-friendly setting. Instead, it was trying to tell me that my dishes craved Dishwasher Rinse Aid. [Read more…]

How to make a photo cluster using one image – foamcoreprint.com

Disclosure: I received product samples for review. Opinions shared are mine.

One of my favorite things about visiting other people’s homes is getting to see how they decorate.  I love how each person displays a unique style.  For so long, I neglected to do anything with the photos on my phone.  It’s time to do something about it!  When Dave, the owner of Foamcoreprint.com, reached out to me about reviewing their products, it was the perfect time to try something new.  Photo collages have always appealed to me, but I wanted something more cohesive for this project.  I asked Dave to help me come up with something really special using this image: [Read more…]

Use a coffee machine to make hot tea #MyAdagio

Disclosure: I received product samples of Adagio tea, and this post contains my ebates referral link. Opinions shared are mine.

This has been a busy week — one of those weeks that ends with a late night all 7 days.  This morning (Saturday) I went into my classroom for what was meant to be an hour or two, but ended up being there for 6 1/2 hours.  Next, I drove my daughter around town so she could work on her school project….taking photos of herself in front of historical monuments. In the rain.  On these days, I look forward to a steaming cup of hot tea before shuffling off to bed.  I’m so grateful for my coffee maker, which helps me to get the tea just right!  Adagio Tea sent me a glorious package with all kinds of product samples to try, and we’ve really enjoyed the daily treat.

You’d think that at the ripe old age of 42, I would have outgrown most of my childhood fears.  There are still a few lingering ghosts in my past, though!  In anticipation of Halloween, I thought we could commiserate over these little quirks.  Share yours for a chance to win this shirt!  [Read more…]
