October 24, 2014Snowman-Scarecrow
The "Frozen" invasion has captured an entire department at Walmart across the country. I predict there will be many little ones wearing Princess Elsa and Anna gowns this year, Olaf and Hans costumes too. Maybe this will be the easy piece of this years costume hunt for the busy listener. Unless you'd like to make it easier? Keeping kids on schedule requires time, organization, and extra reminders. After-school activities and appointments get confusing, and many times a Post-It Note just won't cut it. I've seen many friends send themselves text reminders and calendar alarms, just to stay on track with the day to day demands of raising a busy family. It's helpful when her kids are in the mix of remembering, too. I cant tell you how many times I went to pick up a kid at school, only to learn they took the bus home because they forgot about an orthodontist appointment. Wrist Reminders are handy, durable brightly colored paper bands with self-adhesive, making it a comfortable fit on a child's wrist. She can write a reminder on the front of this bracelet and wrap it around a child's wrist or on a backpack to help her busy little person remember they have to get their braces tightened that day.

A DIY project or mattress purchase could set the tone for this weekend. Putting a bedroom together is easier than it looks. There are many things that happen behind the scenes to pull it all together. Things like a swivel rocker so a television can be seen from all ...

I knew when I moved to the South that Friday night high school foot ball games were important. Off the chart important is more like it. I attended an event last week, on a Friday night, where a major recording artist was performing to a very small crowd. When I ...

I need to practice discipline when apple picking. I always want to pick more apples than I require. There are so many options and my burlap bag used for picking fills up fast. I like picking them so much I get some for myself, workmates, neighbors and I plan a day ...
October 8, 2014Artificial Pumpkin
"Would you like some pumpkin spice in your coffee?" seems to be a standard question lately at many coffee houses. First, I think they are suggestive selling because an extra shot of flavored syrup ups the price of the drink. Next, it's a lovely sign of the fall ...
