Laundry Main_R

Debbie chose Five things I would rather do than fold laundry from The Brown Girl with Long Hair. "I love this post because I can relate completely. It seems laundry is never ending and I want to run away and do anything but look at it or think about it."


frosttitle

Angie chose Homestead Tips on Tuesday: Heed the Frost Date from The (mis)Adventures of a "Born Again" Farm Girl. "I have had to learn the hard way by not heeding the Frost Date & losing tender seedlings. If you are a gardener this date is essential for successful crops."


Hubby's Draft Day_R

Cindy chose The Day My Husband Was Drafted into the NFL from The Brown Girl with Long Hair. "I am a football fan and we have watched the draft for years. I found it interesting to read the story from someone who has been there. I can't imagine the emotions and stress of having your career path being defined in such a way."


jewelry-storage-4-682x1024

Carolyn chose Jewelry Storage and Organization from Woods of Bell Trees. "I thought it was a really creative, lovely way to store your jewelry."


cherry lemonade jello

Ranjani chose Cherry Lemonade Jello Popsicles from Organzier by Day. "I found this simple yet refreshing. It is definitely on my to-do list for this summer now.Cant wait to have a summer party with these cute lil popsicles."


DIYWoodPhotographyBackground

Jillian chose DIY Wood Photography Background from Sew Crafty Cat. "I chose this post because it is a brilliant idea for those of us who get involved in any sort of crafts that need pictures. Plus, it's not something I've seen done before."

Karen also chose DIY Wood Photography Background from Satisfaction through Christ. "I love this project, it's so simple yet so effective as a background. I am in need of something like this, so it's given me food for thought."


7265052

April chose Self-fulfilling Prophecy from Blossom Family. "Being a parent, can often drive you crazy. Once the child starts behaving in a certain way, you start to attribute that trait to them (i.e., he often doesn't listen, therefore he's a "bad listener"). But you know what, Marwa tells us about how we can change how we see it and how it can change them too."


IMG_5263

Stacey chose Fruit Pudding Salad from Mommy on Demand. "This looks absolutely delicious! I am always looking for cool treats to combat the hot summer months. I will definitely be adding this to my recipe list! Thanks for sharing!"


littlemoments

Rachel chose The Little Moments - Transforming Ordinary Moments Into Unforgettable Memories from Satisfaction through Christ. "I love her perspective and how she takes a chore and changes it into a cherished moment. I enjoyed reading her story because it reminded me how much I treasure those little moments with my son."


DIY map art STC

Katie chose DIY Map Art from Satisfaction through Christ. "I love the colors she used for the map and frame, and the stenciled burlap makes a great background! I also LOVE maps, and have yet to decorate with them (but that just might change soon, as Abby has my DIY mind going now). I think it would also be fun to paint your home state in an accent color, too! Great project!"


My-Childs-Education-is-not-your-fall-back-degree

Rhonda chose My Child’s Education Is Not Your Fall Back Degree from British Mum USA. "A mother discusses her displeasure of our educational system, and the fact that is seen by many as a fall back career if they're unsuccessful in their chosen occupation."


time management

Natasha chose Time Management for Bloggers Part 1-Writing from Mom Maven. "I have been working on managing my time better everyday. With all of the things that I'm juggling, time management is an important factor for me. Great post!"

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…
