So I'm actually getting a break this fall when it comes to that frazzled back to school time. When you all are trying to squeeze in an extra hour everyday and wonder how in the world you're going to get dinner on the table in 45 minutes or less between homework and swimming lessons, I'm going to be relaxing ;) There are some perks to being an empty nester! But I've been there and done that.
Heather Letto, author of the new young adult fiction book entitled Impervious (Bookfish), is offering readers a chance to download her entire book for free, one chapter each day, during the month of August.
Just by reading the synopsis on the back cover I was pretty sure this would be something I would enjoy. It shares a popular dystopian theme with books like The Hunger Games and Divergent, which are popular in young adult fiction.

If you need to complete your college freshman's dorm room shopping, Bombinizz is a practical accessory that is perfect for transporting their pillow from school to home and vice versa. It's not surprising at all that a Mom started this home-grown business when she found a need for a storage solution for her children's pillow on their outings. We've all seen our kids juggling bags of all sizes when they're going for a sleepover, to camp or their dorm rooms. They try to tuck that unwieldly pillow under their arm and inevitably it ends up on the ground, covered in dirt and germs.
I am SO excited for this weekend. Family movie night is moving from the living room to the Big Screen! Because we're headed to the theater to see Marvel's GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. It's not often a movie gets 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, and I can just predict that this one is going to blow up the box office records!
THE HUNDRED-FOOT JOURNEY stars Helen Mirren and is produced by Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey and Juliet Blake. The film opens in theatres everywhere August 8th.
Earlier this year I shared with you all about Little Caesars $5 HOT-N-READY Lunch Combo. Since we eat pizza a couple of times a month the affordable offerings from Little Caesars allows us to save a little more (well actually we're just putting what we're not spending on pizza towards our daughter's college expenses ).
The $5 Lunch Combo, features four slices of Little Caesars Detroit-style DEEP!DEEP! Dish pizza, paired with a 20-ounce Pepsi product. The $5 Lunch Combo is available HOT-N-READY every day from 11AM to 2PM at participating locations, plus tax. Now is that a deal or what?!
If you spend a lot of time on Pinterest you'll know that Pallet Art is a big thing right now. I've always wanted to make an art piece like that, but I'm not very creative. Luckily for me, our church started doing a Pinterest Party one night a month this summer and the project for July was Pallet Art. It was so fun to do and while mine isn't by any means up to the creativity and skill of some of the ladies' pieces, I placed it proudly in our Texas themed guest bedroom.
What you'll need to make a pallet art piece similar to mine is:
