Kris Kristofferson

Paul and I recently had the pleasure of spending an evening listening to Kris Kristofferson play and sing many of the songs he has written and performed through the years.  It was an honor to watch this man perform at 80 years of age.

If you’re my age you probably remember Kris from his rugged, raspy voice and his bad boy image. Read more….

I’m one of those ladies that refuses to start putting up any Christmas decorations until after Thanksgiving.  So now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, our Christmas tree is up.  Plus my little Christmas village is twinkling away and my fairy garden is decked out for Christmas.  Not a lot, but we’re on our way!

The passing of Thanksgiving also means that Christmas shopping season is in full swing!  And just in time, the This OR That Giveaway Hop, sponsored by The Mommy Island and The Kids Did It, is here to offer you a chance at lots of super holiday giveaways. Read more….

holiday
For many of us the holiday season means traveling to visit loved ones.  We all know what that means when babies or young children are involved… packing lots of stuff to take along!!  

When family travel is involved, our grandchildren love to get to ride along with Paul and I.  So a few years ago when a trip was planned and our granddaughter would be riding with us, I created a checklist in the hopes of not forgetting anything.  I’m so much better at packing if I have a list!

I recently turned the list into a printable infographic for you in the hopes that it will help you out in some small way too! Read more…

HalloweenIn the blink of an eye, Halloween will be here and gone again!  Such is life it seems, just flying by at the speed of sound. With that thought in mind it’s time to start planning for costumes, decorating, candy and fun Halloween books to read.

I don’t know about your grandchildren, but mine just love Halloween; planning their costumes and dreaming of candy.  I’m not sure which they like the most, the costumes or candy, but I’m going to guess it’s the candy!

With Halloween just around the corner, I’ve joined up with The Kids Did It and The Mommy Island, along with lots of other great bloggers to bring you the “Bugs and Hisses Giveaway Hop”.

I’ve got some of the cutest Halloween books to give away, plus a $25.00 Visa card Read more…
