giveaway hop
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…

fall fashionWith this giveaway hop being all about fall fashion, I thought I would search on line and see what styles we might be seeing.  When I searched for fall fashion trends 2016, a popular fashion magazine site came up.  In all honesty, I don’t think I’ll see anyone wearing 90% of what was depicted there.  Albeit, I’m not a fashion icon and I don’t attend the ritzy parties of the rich and famous.  So who knows, maybe they do dress that way and I just don’t know it!

I dare say that most of us will be pulling our fall and winter clothing out of mothballs and wearing most of it again this year.  With a few new things thrown in for good measure!

And that’s where this great “Welcome to the Fall Fashion Giveaway Hop” hosted by Lindsey Blogs and Viva Veltoro comes in!  A group of your favorite bloggers have come together to offer the best Fall Fashion Giveaways for the entire family – so be sure to hop around to them all below my giveaway and don’t miss that AMAZING Grand Prize from the hosts.

Regardless of what your style is, you’ll need some new things to accessorize with and you are in luck!  This fall fashion giveaway contains two purses and 3 coordinating scarves to accessorize your look this fall! Read more…

Back to school in the 60'sSchool is rolling around once again!  And it seems with each passing year the start date is moved up a little bit earlier.  My grandchildren in California return to school on August 9th!

In the 60’s, every school year started the day after Labor Day.  We didn’t have to wonder when it was going to start, we knew.  Security.

Lots of things were different about school in the 60’s.  I’m a baby boomer and proud of it and I like remembering when: Read more….
