To me, a great way to spend a winter evening, is in the living room with my family watching TV together with a bowl of popcorn and a Coke Zero. What better TV show to enjoy with that Coca-Cola than Season 11 of American Idol? It's only been a few weeks since the season started and already there are favorite contenders for everyone.
I’m a bit of a lotion junkie. I’ve tried all kinds from cheap to expensive and a lot of them are not worth the money I spent on them. Sure I love unique scents and however fun those kind of lotions are to use, in winter I’m looking for relief. Winter always leaves me with dry chapped hands.
This winter has been unusually warm, but living in South Dakota means using long scarves and gloves from November to March. Because I have Raynaud’s and my hands get unusually cold, I usually extend that season by a month on either end! What I really was missing though was being able to use my iTouch and iPad and keep my hands warm at the same time.
I think I’ve mentioned before that my family is kind of picky when it comes to food. It’s because of this that I very rarely make a recipe as it’s lined out.
I’ve been stalking Pinterest lately because there are all sorts of recipes that have been pinned on there, that I’d never be able to find myself online. And maybe it’s because a lot of them come from ‘mom blogs’ and if I can’t use the recipes as written at least they’re fairly easy to modify to fit the tastes of my family.
February 7th marked the day that Disney's classic animated feature "Lady and the Tramp" was released on Blu-ray for the first time ever.
Lady and the Tramp brings back so many memories of my childhood. From what I can remember I was obsessed with "The Siamese Cat Song". I had a read-a-long story book on a record (yes I'm dating myself!). My mom was likely tired of moving the arm every time it was over to start it again for me.
The younger ones that watch movies in our home are always excited when there is a new Buddies movie released.
Treasure Buddies is the latest one and they laugh all the way through it, every time they watch it (I think it’s been watched six times now!). They keep begging to put it on because they love the talking dogs. And as a caregiver I like that Treasure Buddies is family friendly and it’s suitable for a wide range of ages.
In celebration of Black History Month, Coca-Cola® is offering Dollar General customers a chance to win a family trip for up to 10 people to the 2012 Essence Music Festival® presented by Coca-Cola. The Essence Music Festival – which takes place July 6 through 8 – is the country’s largest annual African-American music and empowerment event.
Faced with having his sister taken away from his care to her abusive father, and trying hard to provide for her, 17 year old Abel Tannatak seems down right frightening to his schoolmates. Through a chance finding of six year old Micha’s doll, Anna Leeman becomes part of a fairy tale that may or may not have a happy ending.
Abel is "The Storyteller" and the fairy tale is woven to entertain Micha, but it starts becoming an analogy for what is happening in reality.
Anna may be in over head, or is that possible when you’re in love?
Like the commercial says, “life comes at you fast”. And it seems the faster we go, the less time we have to make something proper to eat. It’s easier to just ‘grab and go’ and that’s why I’m sharing thinkThin bars with you.
It’s all about what’s inside.
It seems every time I go out these days and buy something my receipt gets longer and longer. It’s not because I’m buying a lot of things (okay not usually), but I’ve noticed a growing trend that at the end of the receipt there will be a customer satisfaction survey.
Usually they want to know ‘how they did’ and there is a monthly chance to win a gift card to the store.
