Keeping Toddlers Busy at Appointments

February 6, 2015 By · No Comments

If you have kids and have ever taken a toddler with you to an appointment you will know how very important it is to have items for them to stay entertained while waiting. It doesn’t matter if the appointment is for you, for them or another family member. If they are NOT entertained you will pay for it and so will everyone else inside the waiting room. I decided that I would get all doctors (eyes, physicals, check ups) and dental work done for the month. It seemed like a really clever idea, I mean I am Mom hear me ROAR right? Not always are our best intentions well thought out.

Electric Dog Fence Benefits & a Giveaway

January 17, 2015 By · 5 Comments

I am only posting this in an effort to help some of ya’ll win some Amazon cash. How many of you could use $50 Amazon Gift cards? I don’t know about you but I would love to win an amazon gift card. So for this giveaway we are talking about the four benefits of installing an electric dog fence. How many of you have one?

I don’t own a dog, actually I currently do not have any pets. But I grew up with dogs and some days I wish we had something like this. Why? I had a number of dogs growing up but I remember a time we had just moved into a new city and our three dogs got out. If we had an electric fence it probably never would have happened. They pushed open the gate and ran, only one came back that first night but the other two would take much longer. After a week one of the other two came back but we would not see the third dog, my favorite one, for almost 6 months and by the time we did he ended up with mange.

1.  It keeps the dogs in.

2. It can be cheaper than a traditional fence. Traditional fences can go from hundreds to thousands while an electric fence can be as low as $300.

3.  It can be added on without having to buy a whole lot of materials.

4.  Makes it easier for you to keep a nice yard. Just think you’ll no longer have to worry about weed eatting all that grass that grows into the fence.

Cameras I Want for Christmas from Best Buy! #CamerasatBestBuy

Best-Buy-Holiday-Tree-2014

As a blogger I think we all dream of being one of those bloggers that take the really awesome photos. Am I right? Up until September I had a camera phone and by that I don’t mean it was a really good one. This past September I purchased a GE for about $150 but it doesn’t take the shots I really want. Now I always dreamed of having one with a lens that I could adjust by placing a different lens on it but as the holidays came and went I kind of gave up, all our “extra” money would go to the kids. Yes, you know I’m that type of parent, I buy my items on clearance and it takes you to bend my arm for me to even do that. So I decided to drop a few hints this holiday season and post a few cameras I wish to have from Best Buy. When it comes to Best Buy I don’t live near it but I love the fact you can order whatever you want from the site and it will still get to you. Today is the LAST day to order movies and/or music from Bestbuy if you want it to arrive by Christmas Eve.

The order I am doing this is the cheapest price to the most expensive/most desired by me. hehe

TIP: Do NOT forget that every camera will require a memory card because they don’t automatically come with the camera.

-  I love the fact that this one is sleek and would definitely fit in a jacket pocket, side of my purse, etc. I think this is definitely a nice camera and would be a great one for a beginner wanting to learn how to use one. (BalletGirl would be perfect for this one, course I’d take it too)

Our 2014 Family Photos

December 19, 2014 By · 3 Comments

Did I ever share with you that over the summer since the entire family was together we got photos done? The setting was at our local park and I’m one of those that love natural settings and hanging out at the park is just natural for us. We love to have the kids run around and play and tag each other and then have a BBQ, so it is kind of like a second home. Above you will see a shot that was taken just of myself, I thought it would be a great bio pic and I use it on all my social sites. What do you think?

10580529_10152641516874711_977813644_nHere’s the best photo of the whole family together, it’s a bit grainy but shows us all, not someone cut off and most of us are looking at the camera. Little A (there in the corner in the blue shirt) was dealing with Gnats. As you can imagine a lot of pictures were taken that day some smiled, others frowned, someone looked away. Hey, we have a big family, not everyone will cooperate, that would be a miracle. Even Nicoli decided to show off his walking skills since he had JUST started walking.

(There are a few more pictures that I think really express everyone)
