Purina Beyond: The Natural Pet Food

Purina Beyond Pet Foods

My cats are part of the family so when I go to purchase their food I try to make sure it is something I know they will like. Even though they aren't too picky about their dry foods I know that they will not eat any of the wet cat foods. There are a few brands that they like over other brands and I try to always get those brands. I recently introduced them to a new brand, new to them at least.  Purina Beyond, it's the natural pet food for cats and dogs. As you can tell, Shanny and Professor were more than happy to test out their new Purina Beyond cat food, in fact they just about pushed ... { Keep On Reading }

Well, instead of using a plugin that uses ... { Keep On Reading }

A Fresh Start

Not long after finding out that my husband wanted to separate and most likely divorce I started looking for a place to live. At first I thought about staying in the house and him moving. Then I realized that I needed a place that was mine and that I could call home. I started back to work, at my previous employment, and started saving for a down payment. I had a good chunk of money coming in from a campaign I worked on so getting the FHA down payment would t be a problem. I started looking at houses, working with  Realtor and a mortgage company and hoped for the best. The Realtor was ... { Keep On Reading }
