Crayon Marks? Nail Holes? Craft Projects? Get It All Fixed & Done Before the Holidays!!!

I'm sure you've seen the quote signs "Pardon the Mess, but our Children are Making Memories."  It often just doesn't mean Legos and Barbie shoes on the floor, but also crayon marks on the walls, nail holes from former art work hung and school projects needing to be finished.

Cakes Under the Influence Peaches & Cream Cupcakes Recipe

I recently was given the chance to try Wineheart Vinoleche thanks to House Party.  It's not widely available where I live and the only store in the vicinity that sold it only had the Tres Leches variety.  Not that that's a bad thing, but I was hoping to try a couple of different kinds so that we had a better idea of the flavors they offered.  The recipe card that they had to match the Tres Leches was a Peaches & Cream drink.

Instantly Framed App Gets Photos Off Your Phone, Framed, and On Your Walls!

We've lived in our home for about 17 months now and it feels like it's finally starting to come together décor wise.  We've changed out and painted light fixtures, faucets, cabinet pulls and even all the switches.  But wall space in many of the rooms is still stark, and I have been looking and watching for the right pieces to put in those spots.

Thankful for NewVember and Walmart Best Plans

How did November come upon us so quickly?  As we drove out to the college to pick our daughter up for Thanksgiving break it dawned on me that she's almost finished her first semester!  We're starting to get used to this new season of life for us being empty nesters for much of the year.  I am immensely thankful for our Unlimited Talk Text and Data/Web with our Walmart Family Mobile plan because it allows us to keep in touch with her while she's living at school.

Holiday Gatherings with CK Mondavi Wine

As soon as Halloween is over, it’s the cue that Thanksgiving and Christmas are on their way.

It doesn’t matter if you live in a climate where there is no snow, or whether you're a Thanksgiving Purist and can't put the tree up until the fourth Friday in November.  When November 1 turns over on the calendar you start thinking of all the gatherings, entertaining and food that will be served over the next two months.

2014 Moms Meet WOW Summit

In early November I had the chance to go to the 2014 Moms Meet WOW Summit.  If you're unfamiliar with Moms Meet they are a company that works with brands to get the opinions of consumers (like you and me!) by supplying a "mom" with samples and she hosts a sampling time to share the product with her friends and family.  It's an easy thing to do with no pressure, and the companies Moms Meet works with genuinely want to know your feedback, good AND bad.

My Husband Started #HintingSeason When He Saw the LG OLED TV at Best Buy

When it comes to TVs and media equipment my husband has always been an early adopter.  He had a laser disc player before anyone even knew what they were (what, you don't know what that is?  Okay most people didn't LOL!).  We had one of the first 3D TVs on the market.  We actually replaced our TV not very long ago, and yet every. single. time. we walk into a Best Buy store, my husband gravitates to the TVs to see what's the latest technology so he can make a list (and check it twice!).
