As a product reviewer/bo reviewer, I get access to loads of great new products and bos. I just finished reading “Love on the ” by Deanne Gist, historical romance author. Historical romance is, by far, my favorite genre of novels and Deeanne now has a brand new fan! Rural switchboard operator Georgie Gail is proud of her independence in a man’s world . . . which makes it twice as ve when the telephone company sends a man to lo over her shoulder. Dashing Luke Palmer is than he appears though. He’s a Texas Ranger working undercover to infiltrate...

Every October, my husband and I host a Halloween Costume party for our family. Adults and children are all invited. We usually have a group party early in the evening for all ages and then later, the kids go to the kids room for movies and popcorn while the adults enjoy cards, adult beverages and conversation. Everyone is welcome to stay the night afterwards. Last year Hubby was a pirate and I was a vampire. This year, we are going as the same thing but changing the costumes up a little. Sort of giving them a refresher. You may remember...

Hillshire Farm Gourmet Creations Sausage

We eat a lot of soups and stew during the winter months. But I get tired of the same old series of soups each year. We either have vegetable soup or chili or chicken noodle soup. And while vegetable soup and chili can be changed up quite a bit, I wanted to create something rich and hearty to feed my crew.

I went to Walmart (we do 90$ of our shopping there)  in search of the sausage, not really knowing what recipe I had in mind. I...

Ever year, I send out Christmas cards to all our friends and family. I sending the photo cards because they seem personal to me. One thing I don’t do, though, is have professional photos made. I always try to get a family photo during our vacation and use that in our Christmas cards. To me, it reflects our family. We aren’t perfect. We are goofy and spontaneous. So I want our photos to reflect that. I that one member might have a silly smile on their face or one might have their eyes closed. Why? Because that’s...

Bear cub climbing up on our upper deck.

My family just got back from a super fun fall break vacation with my husband’s entire extended family. I’m talking Mom and Step-Dad, Dad and Step-mom (yes, you read that right, all 4 of them) sister and family, brother, aunts, cousin, etc. It was SOOOOOOOO much fun! I’ll post about it later. I have tons of photos. But I wanted to brag on the cabin rental company just really quickly. This is NOT a sponsored post. I’ve not been compensated in any way to write this post. I just really, really enjoyed my stay and wanted to give them...
