Don’t change for someone else


I've been thinking about this post for about two weeks or so now and although I might sound very negative or rude, this post is meant to help you as a blogger.  Do NOT change for anyone else, unless it's something YOU want! Where's this coming from? Well, I am part of a private group on Facebook for bloggers that want to work with companies and the main person of this group has suggested that the bloggers change their style in order to get opportunities.  Apparently they've looked at a bunch bloggers and found that they like the way a couple of them write or have their site and they want ... {Keep On Reading}

Thaddeus: Knowledgeable & Curious Good Character Award

Proud Thaddeus

Every so often Thaddeus' school has their teachers pick out students to receive awards for certain areas and having a positive PYP (Primary Years Program) trait.  This time Thaddeus was selected in his class because: Thaddeus is knowledgeable and curious about our world. This morning they were giving all the selected students their award. This was the first time we've really been able to attend anything because in the past it's been too hard to bring Xavier with us because he was either still on the oxygen or two soon off of it and we didn't want to take the chance.  So, this morning I ... {Keep On Reading}

OtterBox protection is the way to go {Review & Giveaway}


Being a mom of a six-year-old and a baby under one, you must have protection!  Protection in this case is for your electronic devices; whether that be a cell phone, iPad, eReader, tablet, or whatever you use. For me, it's my iPhone and my iPad. I've purchased probably a dozen cases over the years for my iPhone and my iPad and I always seem to fall back to my OtterBox case. Why? Because it's the most dependable and durable case I've found so far. Although I don't always use my OtterBox Defender Series case for my iPhone, it is the one I reach for if I'm going to be going out ... {Keep On Reading}

Thaddeus: He’s a Character!

All dressed and ready to ride his bike, inside!

It never amazes me when Thaddeus comes walking into the room with some weird outfit on, dressing like a character from his favorite cartoon at that time.  Or just putting weird things on, just because. Here's a few pictures of him throughout the years, including the most recent from this month! I don't know where he gets this from, he's a weird child! :teehee ... {Keep On Reading}

Remodeling of the Flower Garden in Front of House

Up-Close front yard 2011

About a month ago we got a really bad rain in the middle of the night and the one basement window that isn't a block window started leaking water into the house. We never thought we would get water in this window because of where it is located. It's the one under our Living Room window, but it was never blocked in because the previous owner of the house put a planter box type thing with a window well around it to keep the dirt from going against the glass.  There's also an overhang over it to keep the rain from coming straight down in that spot. The only way to really completely fix this ... {Keep On Reading}
