A Dozen Cookies for $4 and a Wish With Wings to Make That Deal Even Sweeter

If you've ever moved to a new city, then you know that exploring your community and the things they offer is so fun and exciting.  I just found out today that not far from our home, actually just an 8 minute drive from my husband's office, a new Tiff's Treats is opening.

And yes this excites me because we're talking about COOKIES!!! Home-made, hand-delivered warm and fresh straight to your door.  Now that's seriously delightful.

What Kind of Nut Puts Oil On Her Face?

I don't know if you know who Josie Maran is or if you've seen her ads from Sephora, but the one in my January 2014 Marie Claire magazine, has her marketing her line of 100% Pure Argan Oil.

Last month I did a review of Pro Naturals hair care and included in the kit was a bottle of 100% pure Argan oil. 

I followed all the directions for the review and have continued using the Pro Naturals system and it has worked wonders on my hair.  So when I saw that advertisement, it made me go hmmm.....

Six Handy Tech Accessories for under $20 on Amazon.com

I would think that most everyone that is reading this post has at least one tech gadget in their home. Whether it's a smartphone, tablet, Kindle, Nintendo DS or a digital camera. At the very least you all probably have a TV many of them flat screens that are plasma or LED. And while some of you might be at the library or a friend or family member's home reading this on their computer, if you're not doing it on a mobile gadget, you're viewing this on your own monitor. So what am I getting at? Then there's at least one item (or more) on this list that will be handy to you (or at least I hope you think so!).

I Know My Redeemer Lives - Happy Easter!

The church we attend just completed a new building to worship in this spring.  For a few weekends in March and early April they had some guests come and help us open the building and invited and welcomed the community to come visit (and hopefully come back too!).  One of the special guests that came was Nicole C. Mullen. 

I took video of what is probably her most recognized song "My Redeemer Lives" and thought it was so appropriate to post today.

Dr. Fischer Mineral Products Review & Giveaway

When I was asked to review and do a giveaway for Dr. Fischer's Mineral products with the benefits of Dead Sea minerals for Mother's Day, I immediately thought of my mom.  Of course because it's Mother's Day, and she's my mom, and because she loves to be treated to a day at the spa, but really it's because my mom and dad are frequent travelers to Israel and every time they come home she raves about the Dead Sea mud and her 'beauty treatment' .

How to Create an Easy Cinco de Mayo Bento Lunch for Kids

Cinco de Mayo themed bento lunch for kids

I have a few blogging friends that are SO creative, they make these incredibly cute and healthy Bento Box lunches for their children to take to school (or even to eat at home!).  I was lucky if I remembered to take the ice pack out of the freezer or pack a spoon for the yogurt when I was making lunches for Amber...

But today I'm beaming from ear to ear because I think I nailed a cute Cinco de Mayo Bento Box idea for you guys to run with, make all your own and one up me on (because admittedly I just don't have the supplies to make it as awesome as it could be like those seasoned Bento moms).  How fun would it be to pack something like this in their lunches on May 5th?

Secret Clinical Strength & Giveaway

Secret Clinical helps protect against the three causes of sweat:

· Heat
· Activity
· Stress Sweat – especially stress sweat!

Stress sweat - yep, that's occurring around here on a daily basis.  I've never really had a problem with over sweating before, but I think the combination of all the things I need to do and get organized over the next couple of months, and the introduction to Texas summers have thrown my body for a loop.

Why does stress sweat smell worse?

We have great enthusiasm for superhero movies around our home, so we're excited about the release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on May 2nd.

We've always known that Spider-Man's most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2™, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead.

I'm a "Family Talk About Drinking" Ambassador

The Anheuser-Busch Family Talk About Drinking program, helps families discuss the important issues surrounding the topic of underage drinking.  As the parent of a daughter who will be turning 18 in just 11 days and headed off to live in a dorm come fall, I'm proud to announce that I'm a Mom Blog Ambassador for the Family Talk About Drinking program. 

As the mom of an "almost" grown up, I've recognized that through the years there are different stages of parenting and we can tie those stages right from the beginning together to open the way for discussion to the responsible use of alcohol.
