ABC-October 13 - What items would you put into a time capsule?

Today's challenge...what items would you put in a time capsule?

Hmm, the first thought would be a camera..how they've changed over the years...and the next thought was a laptop..wonder what they will look like even 10 years from now? bet they won't look like they do today!

I would also write a letter(s) and put them in there telling about the events that has gone on in my life or maybe one to tell about this decade...or each decade that I've been here I could write about and put it in there..



Tweet - Make some money tweeting!

I just wanted to share with you all about an easy way to make money. I don't know about you, but I absolutely LOVE twitter!! I love to tweet great deals that I find and just everyday stuff on there as well.

I had joined years ago when twitter first came out and was getting popular and I haven't let up yet!

I've been a work at home mom for over 12 years now and one of the ways that I found that is legit where you can actually make money is by tweeting!! Its true! I have done this for years and love it. 

To make it clear, no its not something where you can become rich overnight but its a good amount of cash for extra things that you want to do or buy. You need to stay involved in it to be able to get it going and enjoy the money. It might not seem like that much at first but it will soon add up if you check it daily a couple of times and keep up with the open opps and do them as they come your way.

Have a great weekend!


Almondina Cookie Giveaway Announcement

What is Almondina?  It's a Delicious Cookie without the Guilt!    A no added fat, no-cholestrol, no salt, no preservatives cookie.   These cookies do not have to be dipped, they are perfect just to eat for a snack.  The company has been around since 1929.  Honestly it was the first time I had heard of them. Let's just say when I received the sampler package above, I was concerned, because I'm not a coffee drinker.   So I had a plan to take these cookies to a women's retreat.  I  had decided I was going to take them and see how everyone else liked them with their coffee.   However, with must persistence my daughter asked to try one.   So I pulled out two, one for me and one for her out of the Ginger-spice Biscuits.  Thirty minutes later I had to open a second and third pack for my other children as they arrived home from school.  They were that good. We tired them with spreadable cheeses, dipped in hot Chocolate and in tea.   We ate a lot of them straight from the pa…

Why I Blog

Why I blog?

I blog for a number of reasons, I feel that it helps me in ways that nothing else can. I blog for myself to get a part of me that I can't talk to anyone about out there in one way or another. I blog on my personal blog at least once daily, sometimes more. I seem to blog more when I have a lot going on and my mind is overworking itself. When I was younger I use to always write in my journal. I remember filling up the 5 subject notebooks more with my thoughts and things in it then my school work! I love to write and that took me into blogging.

I first got into blogging years and years ago thanks to my step-daughter who told me about Myspace. Wow haven't heard that in awhile! So I got on there and signed up and checked it out and I loved the way that it was set up so some of my blogs I could share and others I could mark as private/personal. Ever since then, I haven't stopped!! I have grown over the years as a person and I have shown that in my blogs. I was once a qui…

Cancer Awareness - lost 2 to Lung and Colon cancer

I know that its Breast cancer awareness month, but this month has an emotional meaning to me. 12 years ago on Oct. 13th my grandfather died of Lung cancer. He was a brave and strong man. I then years later lost my only uncle to Colon cancer. Cancer plays a part in my life that I wished that it wouldn't of. I miss my grandfather and my uncle every day. I was close to them. I was my grandfather's first and only granddaughter for 5 years before my other only female cousin came along. So me and my grandfather were very close and me and my uncle too as I was the only kid around for them to spoil. Tons of great memories with each of them. Thoughts and prayers go out to all of those that are dealing with family and or friends that are dealing with any kind of cancer.

ABC-October 9 - Write about an item you consider to be a family heirloom

Today's Autumn Blog Challenge is to write about an item that I consider a family heirloom. Well unfortunately for me, I don't have any in my family right now. I would of liked to of gotten a few things that my grandmother has and of my grandfather that passed away 12 years ago on the 11th of this month, but at this time my family isn't exactly on good terms. Haven't been for awhile off and on for a number of reasons. My family (well maybe its just me with the family) don't agree on things and they choose to put me down and I have chose this year to not allow them to do that anymore, that this is my life and I am happy with the way that I have lived it and have raised my kids and therefore I won't allow my kids even though they are teenagers to associate with my family. After the kids are adults and out on there own, they are allowed to socialize or not with the family, that is up to them but right now they aren't. My grandmother has so many things that cou…

This product was reviewed by Jenn, Mom Of Two Munchkins.

School of Wash is a family run company that believes fresh ingredients are not only important in the kitchen but in all aspects of life.  All products are made to order so you know it has not been sitting on a shelf somewhere for months.

Not only are all the orders made to order and fresh they are paraben-free, talc-free, sulfate-free, sodium chloride-free, and contain no dyes. They have a multitude of products to choose from and 135 scents!!  Yes, I said 135 different scents.  Incredible, I know.  They have bath and body products, perfume, room spray and many other items!  They have products for adults and kids, something for everyone!




And here pretty soon they will have pet products too  I am super excited about that one because my dogs can have a bath and the very next time they go outside come back in stinky so I can't wait to try School Of Wash's pet line.

My comforts as far as people...are my kids. They always seem to comfort me when I'm in a mood to where they can tell I need to be comforted.

Music - Anytime anywhere for any emotions/feelings etc. music is always going and it always comforts me.

Other things...my cat Bunnie :) She's my white calico cat and she is a joy to have around and always puts a smile on my face and comforts me when she cuddles with me. Its like she knows when I need to be loved on..She's my baby that is 5 years old. Spoiled!!
