Get a little holiday help with Simply Stamps

3-line-rubber-stamp_Large

  It's that time of the year. Time to track down your address book and pick out the best holiday card you can find to send out to family and friends. I used to put a lot of time and effort sending out holiday cards. I would start the beginning of November so that I could send the out right after Thanksgiving. At that time I must have sent out … [More...]

Your Guide to Thanksgiving from Whole Foods Market

Thanksgiving Turkey

  Thanksgiving is almost here. I'm sure most people have their holiday plans all set and ready to go. It's always only me and my family for Thanksgiving (me, my husband and our two teenagers). My father goes to Indiana with my stepmother to have Thanksgiving with my stepsister's family. The rest of the family (cousins) all have other plans or … [More...]

  With the holiday season upon us I know a lot of people are going to be spending a lot of time online and waiting on lines at the stores to purchase the "perfect gift". If someone on your holiday shopping list is into perfume I have a delightful suggestion you might want to consider - LACOSTE's new fragrance, EAU DE LACOSTE … [More...]

Let the Neato Robotic Vacuum do the work for you. We have five cats and a dog (not to mention a couple of fish). I know a thing or two about pet hair and how it gets all over EVERYTHING - … [More...]

My week with a 2015 Mazda Mazda3 s Grand Touring 4-door sedan

2015 Mazda Mazda3 s Grand Touring 4-door sedan 3

  I drive around town in a 96' Mazda 626. I've had the car for many years. We purchased it used but it had low miles and it was in great shape. My husband's car is "younger" than my car (his is an 03') yet his car always seems to have more problems then mine. Even though my Mazda has seen better days it's still running and gets me from … [More...]

Mega Bloks Super Race Set

  With the holiday season fast approaching there is no doubt that many little boys and girls are quickly filling up their holiday wish lists in hopes that Santa (or on Hanukkah) they receive some of the toys and games they really want. I'm going to show my age here but when I was little I looked forward to the day the Sears Wish Book showed up … [More...]

Holiday Travel Safety Twitter Chat with Buckle Up for Life! and Car Seat Giveaway (ends 11/22/14)

Child in car seat

  If you have a baby or child in your life you know how important having a car seat is. It's an essential safety product - a true "must have". As a parent I could not imagine traveling with a child in the back seat NOT in a car seat. I don't know how parents dealt with it back in the 50's, 60's and 70's. I don't even think they had a car seat … [More...]

    Now that the holiday season is in full bloom, many people are excitedly making plans to visit family and friends, planning on holiday meals and getting themselves prepared for marathon shopping sprees and baking like there is no tomorrow (LOL). There are so many ways that we can celebrate the seasons. I love how every family has … [More...]

A fun new app for children – Little Luna – Big Talent

Children - Technology

  It's amazing how much technology has changed in just a few short years. When my kids were little we had cellphones but not smartphones. You could make phone calls on your cellphone but that was it. Kids could not play games on their parent's phones back then. These days there is a wonderful array of kid-friendly, parent-approved educational … [More...]

The Blobbits are here!

blobwpackages

  The Blobbits are here! The Blobbits are here! What in the world are Blobbits? That is a great question. Blobbits look like they are not "of" this world. In fact, they look like blob-like aliens. According to the makers of Blobbits... Blobbits are intergalactic stretchable, glow-in-the-dark, moldable, silicone-based compound that is … [More...]

The Sisterhood: Becoming Nuns premieres on Lifetime on November 25, 2014 at 10:00 PM (EST) / 9:00 PM (CST)

Sisterhood-FB-Insta-Template-1

  I am not catholic, but that doesn't mean that I don't respect priests and nuns. In fact I am very impressed by them. I could not imagine giving up everything to serve God. As odd as it sounds I am fascinated by that sacred world. Most people don't get to see what goes on "behind the scenes" and the process one must go through in order to … [More...]

Star Wars Clone Wars Lost Missions

  I'm very excited for the new Star Wars film which is expected to land in theaters in December 2015. I'm sure the film is going to create a whole new generation of Star Wars fans. I am a life long Star Wars fan. I saw the original film, Star Wars: The New Hope, in the theater when it was first released. I've been a fan every since. Have … [More...]

*I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Lions Gate. I received a book, products, and a promotional item to thank me for participating. Several years ago my daughter was begging me for a series of books from an author Suzanne Collins. I knew nothing of the books or the author so I was reluctant to purchase books I … [More...]

She Scribes made Cision’s Top 50 U.S. Mom Blogger’s List!

Breaking News

  The other day I received a Facebook message from my dear friend Mitch over at GayNYCDad.com. He told me that I had made the Top 50 Mom Blogger's list. I had no clue what he was talking about. Thankfully he sent me a link. Of course I just had to check it out. The link took me to the Cision website. Cision helps companies, brands and public … [More...]

Celebrity Spokespeople vs. REAL People

Cherry red summer apple isolated on white

  Do you ever watch television and see a celebrity pushing a product or service and wonder "Why him/her?" For example, Tommy Lee Jones promoting Ameriprise Financial and Catherine Zeta-Jones trying to get you to sign up for T-Mobile. I wouldn't associate these people with the things they are trying to sell you. In fact, I am never swayed by celebrity … [More...]

Healthy lifestyle

  Did you know that almost every day of the year has something special assigned to it? Most of these "holidays" and observances are unknown to most of us. For example, February 28, 2014 is National Pancake Day. This coming Saturday (January 4, 2014) is National Spaghetti Day. There are also weekly and monthly observances. Bald Eagle Appreciation … [More...]
