new penI have a pen fetish!  I have always loved planners, notebooks, paper, pretty much anything office supply related, but mostly pens.  When out shopping together when our children were still at home it was always a joke between them and my husband that if they couldn’t find me, just look in the pen aisle!

I’ve recently found pens that I love so much that I had to share them with you. These pens weren’t given to me to write a review and I wasn’t paid to write a review, I simply want to share them with you because I like using them so much.  Read more….

health informationDo you ever feel completely overwhelmed with all the information bombarding you from social media?

I do!  In fact, when it comes to certain topics I just want to throw up my hands, walk away and give up.

Those certain topics for me are blogging and health information.  Titles like “I made $5000 dollars a month my first year of blogging” make me feel as if I have failed and failed badly.  Then I remind myself that nothing can make me feel like a failure unless I allow it! Read more….

SAD

Many of us love to see the signs of fall each year and all the things that go along with it…. crisp air, colorful leaves and fall festivals. But what also goes along with it is the shortening of our daylight hours and that can lead to problems.

Now fall has turned into winter and in addition to the shorter days, the temps have been frigid for some of us making it difficult to get outside.

I knew that dreary, cloudy weather and shorter days affected the way I felt and now I know why.  I have Seasonal Affective Disorder or SAD. Read more….

5 Steps We Can Take to Protect our Brain Health

brain healthI recently attended a seminar on the subject of brain health and it was a real eye-opener.  How many times have we heard “you are what you eat” and just brushed it aside?  Well, it’s true and the impact on our brains is immense.

At this time Alzheimer’s Dementia is estimated to affect 5.4 million Americans and by the year 2050, the number of people 65 and over to have Alzheimer’s may triple to 13.8 million Americans.  Shocking numbers!

I don’t want Alzheimer’s disease, no one does.  Genetics does play a role in our risk of being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and I know we can’t change that, but what we need to realize is the role our nutrition and other lifestyle choices are influencing the disease.  Read more….

I love having our grandchildren over for play days and sleepovers and wanted to have a room for them they considered their own.  I’ve worked to create just that space for them.

The room had to be appropriate for boys and girls, so I chose two shades of green for the walls.  I purchased paint from Lowes and painted three walls a pale green and one wall bright green.

When decorating their room, I needed more space for storing toys, books, and games.  Paul, who is great at building things, removed the door Read more….

Car Seats

This is a sponsored post.

I have no memories of ever seeing a car seat when I was a child.  When my children were born, we had car seats but there wasn’t very much emphasis put on them, at least until my last child was born.  I know we used them but probably very incorrectly.

Things are very different now and with good reason.  Car crashes are a leading cause of death for children ages 1 to 13.  That’s why it is so incredibly important for us to choose the right car seat and install it correctly. Read more….
