Are You Prepared for Severe Weather?

September happens to be National Preparedness Month. It's not something I think about a lot when it comes to being prepared for severe weather, because we've been fortunate enough to never have gone through a natural disaster. We've been snowed or iced in for a few days, but we've never been without power or heat for any length of time.

12 After-School Snacks Kids Will Love

Not quite two weeks ago we dropped our daughter off at college.  My husband and I spent the car ride home reminiscing about all the school years from Kindergarten until now.  From first days of the school years to field trips, to packing lunches and after school activities.  Things have changed so much for us now!

This made me realize- I'm in the position of sharing what I've learned over the years with moms who are just starting out on this journey.

Instant Rewards iOS App

The fall usually brings me to a place where I start to look for extra ways to save and make money...because the holidays are coming y'all!  I plug away at various online programs where I get rewarded for clicking links, taking surveys, watching videos and completing offers, and I just learned of an app like that called Instant Rewards.

After you fill out an easy registration (nothing more really than your name, e-mail and a password), you can complete 'tasks' for various amounts of credits.

Review of Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season Tires

Back in June you might remember that I posted about Goodyear's all-season model of their Eagle Sport tires.  Well we also recieved a set to review for my husband's VW Jetta.  We've had them on his car for a few weeks now and I wanted to share with you all how they are performing.

Unfortunately we haven't yet been able to test the tires under wet conditions here, as rain in North Texas has not been much of a weather occassion lately ;)

2015 Kia Sorento SX Limited AWD

Well it's been almost a week since we dropped our daughter off at university.  It's been a rough start for all of us.  I've already had to mail her money due to the irresponsibility of someone else and today we're making a trip out to the dorms to drop off some supplies that she needs for tomorrow (that she was only told about yesterday).  We're hoping these are our biggest worries of the semester and everything else will go like clockwork and she'll keep her grades up.  The great thing is she is making lots of friends!

Beautiful Things: Wood Clip Frame

Last month I shared with you all how the Women's Ministry in our church was doing a Pinterest Party each month where they'd choose a craft and we could all come and make it with our own twist.  While it was supposed to just be a program that they were going to do over the summer, there was so much interest and so many women signing up that they decided to continue doing it year round and they are calling it "Beautiful Things."  In July we did some Pallet Art.  August's project was a Wood Clip Frame.
