twins 2

Lorna chose The Million Dollar Question from Normal Everyday Life. "I chose this post because it is beautifully written and she shows in her writing, that no matter whether you choose to work or stay at home you are and do have worth in the world."


teacher appreciation 5

Debbie chose Teacher Appreciation from Three Kids and a Fish. "I chose this post because I have so many kids that have often had the same teachers as their siblings. I love showing my appreciation to their teachers but it's hard to not just keep giving the same thing over and over again. These printables make it so you can give a teacher something nice to say how awesome they are but with a sweet personal twist to it."


highlo2

Michele chose High-Low Chair Vignette from The Coconut Head's Cancer Survival Guide. "It's my favorite because it shows how upcycling from a yard sale of Restore can make something new and usable again. Sometimes the best things in our homes are ones that have character or have a story to tell."

Katie chose We Made a Flower "Bed" for the Greenhouse from Penny's Vintage Home. "I chose it because Penny has clearly taken so much care over making sure her greenhouse is not just a place to pot plants, but a haven of beauty and tranquility. It's so romantic and quaint - the flower "bed" is just wonderful and so unique!"


LNMtitle

Juanita chose Loch Ness Monster, Free Pattern from Pickled Okra by Charlie. "I love how cute the Loch Ness Monster turns out, and the simplicity of the instructions. I can't wait to try making one myself."


sleepless

April chose Sleepless In Atlanta Pt.2 from New Mama Diaries. "As I struggle with the same problem, Tenns just wants her son to sleep through the night. Don't we all?"


Change Your Thoughts and Change Your World

Stacey chose Change Your Thoughts and Change Your World from Darlene Nemeth. "It took me a long time to realize that I needed to change my negative energy to positive energy and when I did it things started to change in my life. I still struggle at times, but I have to say that the positive thoughts have brought about many positive changes in my life."


10-Things-Ive-Learned

 
Natasha chose 10 Things I’ve Learned as the Parent of a Child with Special Needs from From ABCs to ACTs. "This post is beautifully written, and can apply to every mom with every child. A must read!"

Ann (That's Me!) chose A Better Me: Accepting The Person I Need To Be... from Twist & Sprinkle. "I appreciate Kristy's honesty and connection to her readers. She reminds me of what I feel blogging should be :->"

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

How to Find the Safest Gear for your Baby

Nothing compares to the joys of being a parent. Having a newborn in the family brings couples closer and makes the entire household more cheerful and interesting. But as we all know, being a parent is not just about spending time with your baby. More than anything else, it also requires exerting a lot of effort to make sure that your baby is always safe and free from potential hazards. To further help you in this endeavor, here are some useful tips for finding the safest gear for your baby as you go through various baby product guides:

Opt for a non-toxic gear. The first thing you need to check is the composition of the safety gear. What is the material made from? Is it non-toxic? Be sure that it is because babies have a strong tendency to put everything they see or touch in their mouths. It goes without saying that a safety gear that is made from toxic materials could poison your baby, in the long run, so be very careful about the safety gears you purchase.
Make sure it is sturdy. The …

Yes, I'm a Dork for the Grocery Outlet

So our neighborhood was notified that a Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market would be opening in the new year.  I can't tell you how thrilled I was to hear this!  And when I received my friendly Grocery Outlet postcard with my friendly notice of the friendly festivities for their Grand Opening I actually put it on my calendar.  I knew exactly where I was going to be on Saturday morning.

Whoo Hoo! There was a giant "Wheel - o - Bargains".  I spun and won a $1 off my purchase.  Oh man I can't tell you how happy I am when I get money off my purchase.  yeah baby.  We were one of the first 1000 customer's so my husband and I received free Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market reusable bags!  (Rob was so excited.  Yes, he can be a dork sometimes too.)

What is it about this place?  Most of the items are things that I've never heard of, or have any interest in, however I am drawn to it like a kid to a candy store.  (Or better yet, like a wine lovin' mom who's found some…
