Here’s to Another 15 Years!

Wedding Picture - Facing

I will admit, I never thought that meeting someone online, falling in love, getting married, having kids, and almost getting a divorce was ever in my thoughts. But that's how the last 15 years of my life have been. It doesn't seem like that long ago I announced I was in the process of getting separated and possibly divorced. Believe me when I say that the last 8 months have been the longest 8 months of my life and the most stressful. However, I have very, VERY, happy to announce that my husband and I have possibly worked everything out and we are starting fresh. We are no longer separating ... {Keep On Reading}

Converting Photos to GIFs Using PicGIF for Mac

PicGIF for Mac

I've been using a Mac now for about 10 years, maybe a little less.  One of my biggest frustrations with switching from a PC to a Mac is finding software to do the things I was able to do on my PC.  Switching from one program to another and having to learn it over because they don't support Macs or even learning the same program but the Mac version can be frustrating at times. One of the things I kind of miss doing is creating GIF images. Not that I want to do it often, but there are times that I'd just love to be able to do this for some sidebar advertising of my own.  I never really looked ... {Keep On Reading}

Everyday Use of a 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SE AWC

2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SE AWC

I have done a few car reviews here and there and it has been great. In fact, I enjoy doing them because they not only help me figure out what kind of vehicle I like but they also help me with deciding on what my next vehicle will be.  This recently happened when I leased the 2014 Kia Soul, had I not received one for a week test-drive, I probably wouldn't have realized how nice they were and would have struggled figure out what I wanted to get when replacing my 2003 Saturn Vue. With that being said, I just recently received a 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport SE AWC for a week-long test-drive ... {Keep On Reading}

Unplugged but Still Connected With Jabra Revo Wireless #JabraRevo

Unplugged but Still Connected With Jabra Revo Wireless

Whenever I am writing my blog posts, especially in the evening or on the weekends I love to listen to music. It not only calms me down but for whatever reason helps me concentrate on what I'm doing. Problem is, I don't live alone so listening to the music I like to listen to isn't something that everyone else wants to hear, especially if it is at night and the boys are sleeping.  This is where the Jabra Revo Wireless headphones come in handy.   I can listen to what I want, when I want and not have to worry about disturbing anyone else. What's even better is that while I'm ... {Keep On Reading}

Fall Cleaning: Have You Tried This Yet? #TryThisAtLowes

$100 Lowe's Gift Card Giveaway

Fall has officially arrived and you know what that means? That means that it is time to try some new DIY projects.  Have you Tried this Yet? Thanks to Lowe's I've been able to try something new. There are so many things outside that need to get cleaned and some of them need something a little different to work. For instance, for cleaning the kids playhouse, slides, and swings we want to use something a little less harsh so we take a little Tide laundry detergent and mix it with water in a spray bottle.  Spray down the items and wipe them clean with some Bounty paper ... {Keep On Reading}

Hallowe’en in Greenfield Village

Hallowe'en Greenfield Village - Jack-O-Lanterns

Disclosure: We received complementary tickets for the family to attend in exchange for a post telling you all about the event.  All opinions are that of my own. When fall time comes there are so many great things to do in Michigan. One of the newest attractions we'll take part in from now on will be Hallowe'en in Greenfield Village!  We are already super fans of going to Greenfield Village throughout the year because of all the great historical things you get to see and learn, but there is just something about going in after hours and seeing the place at night with the ghosts and ... {Keep On Reading}
