Emeril Lagasse has COMFORTABLE Dress Shoes!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

So... this is the kid who is going through shoes like a mad man.Why? Because they had him doing door-to-door for his real estate, and it was literally tearing through the bottoms of his shoes left and right, not to mention it was not pleasant on his feet to be walking around so much in fancy dress shoes. Do you find yourself struggling with aching feet at your job too? Emeril Lagasse has come up with a practical and stylish solution with his fabulous new shoe line. They have styles for men and women, and if you're looking for comfort with style, I encourage you to head on over and check them out too.

Six Great Games for Kids: A Lucky Winner Gets to Choose One to Call their Own!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


You may remember my post on the adorable and very fun Jumping Jack game I got my granddaughter for Easter. Such a great game for the kids, regardless of their age (my three grown kids were playing it too!). That selection was from Goliath Games, and they have a whole slew of others for sale, that I think you are also going to love. One lucky winner, will get to choose the game of their choice from those we talk about today (including Jumping Jack). Let's start with Domino Rally Ultra Power...

Fold & Fly Origami book from Quarto Knows!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


How fun it is to fold! Every single one of my kids has gone through wanting to learn how to create origami. My daughter does a great job with butterflies. My two oldest boys (one learned from the other) used money to make little shirts with collars, pants, or dollar rings. Now my youngest is learning how to fold with this Fold & Fly book from Quarto Knows that not only teaches you step-by-step how to make your folds, but also gives you patterned paper to do so!  Double fun-fun!

I Found the Lightest Laptop Around: Get $100 Off Google #Pixelbook Today!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. I will receive a gift card, item or discounted item in exchange for my honest review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



There are so many reasons I am considering switching to a Google Pixelbook.

Not too long back, I had a high-priced, high-quality laptop, that worked like a charm. One day, as I poured myself a huge glass of cranberry juice on ice, I sat down to start the day's work, and promptly spilled that drink all over my keyboard.

It's Basketball Season: Hydrate with BODYARMOR

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

Taking a basketball break, hydrating with Blueberry-Pomegranate BodyArmor Lyte.

That's my boy. He's drinking a Blueberry-Pomegranate BODYARMOR LYTE (just 3 grams of sugar per serving). There are 4 flavors of LYTE available. My son has tried Peach Mango, Cherry Berry, Blueberry Pomegranate, and Orange Citrus...he loves them all. One thing you should know, when he plays, he plays hard. Another thing to know...he takes the sport of basketball very seriously. He'll stay out far longer than he should, trying to get that last bit of energy out of him before he comes home and collapses on the couch. I used to try and shoo him directly to the shower, but these days I've gotten smarter and I put a towel down before he sits, ha! Simple, but effective and then after he hydrates and rests a bit more, both he and the towel go right to the wash (not together, of course). 

Happy Easter!


Happy Easter to everyone who celebrates it. I hope you have a wonderful, warm and very blessed day! We went to Sunrise Service, just did the egg hunt, and now the child is building the Legos the Easter Bunny left behind (swell chap, that he is...the bunny and the boy). ;)  It's a beautiful day on all accounts! May God Bless and keep you always!

Easter Basket Gift Ideas for Your Little Girl! Plus Giveaway! #Hasbro

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


Some of you know my granddaughter isn't allowed to eat artificially flavored sweets. She gets her sweet goodness from items made in nature, like peaches and strawberries. While this is a good thing, it makes for a bit of challenge to make her feel like she is part of the festivities when holidays roll around. Think about it... while I love Easter and the goodies that go in the basket, none of those things are good for the little one, so her parents aren't having it. I admire that about them. As a grandma who loves to spoil her one and only sweet grandbaby girl, I make sure to find items that I know she'll love so much, that she won't miss the sugary treats she sees those all around her getting at the same time. And so far, she doesn't! Hurrah! This year, I'm filling her Easter Basket with Magical Movers. No one loves a princess as much as my little princess, so I already know she's going to be deeelighted and then some with her special gifts.

Today My Son is Sick: Sleep Zzz Pillow to the Rescue

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



Last night, between the hours of midnight and 2 a.m., my son was up and down intermittently, crying, running a fever and generally just not feeling well. His biggest complaint was that his throat was so sore. This all took us completely by surprise, because the very day before he had been perfectly fine. My granddaughter did get sick on Saturday morning when we were visiting, but that was 3 days ago!! Could it take that long for germs to manifest themselves into what we were dealing with (and the symptoms were not exactly the same)? I have no idea, but suffice it to say, I had to call off work and he stayed home from school. He got up and came to me on the couch, with his trusty Sleep Zzz Pillow under his arm, and his favorite blanket (that is really my blanket, a Christmas gift he confiscated and never returned, a couple of years back). ;) He promptly fell asleep and didn't wake up, except for water once, until the day was almost entirely over.

Get 20% Off Entire Cart Of SmitCo Gifts! We Got the Stretch Butterfly Jewelry Set

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated, however, are genuine and my own.



Over the weekend I took my granddaughter to the mall to go shopping at the toy store. She's at the age where searching through the shoppes is really fun, and she definitely knows what she likes. We also decided to go pick out a new dress for Spring/Easter.  To accompany her purchase, I brought along a Stretch Butterfly Necklace, Ring and Bracelet set from SmitCo LLC., which she absolutely loved!

$25 Visa Gift Card and Free Product Coupons: “Make the Pledge” to Recycle with TerraCycle® & Little Bites® #PledgetoRecycle

Disclosure: The coupons for product redemption, information, and gift card have been provided by Entenmann’s Little Bites® so that I could try the product and share information about the Entenmann's Little Bites ® Pouch Recycling Program with TerraCycle® and my thoughts and information about Entenmann’s Little Bites®. The opinions expressed in this post are my own and do not reflect the opinions of Entenmann’s Little Bites®.



My son and I take turns with the chores. One week he packs our lunches for the day, and the next I do. On the weeks he packs, he always makes sure to tuck a Little Bites into my lunchbox (and of course, his too). ;) I don't mind, they're pretty tasty. We both have our own favorite flavor, and on the weeks I know he'll be packing, I always make sure to have some of each in the house. I also take them with me sometimes as a snack, if we're going somewhere that's going to have us away from home for a good bit. Making sure there are snack options for the kids ensures they don't get grouchy before we get home to eat a proper meal. Besides tasting great, it always seems Entenmann's Little Bites®  is also doing something great. Right now they've partnered with Terra Cycle, another wonderful organization, to help the environment in a big way, and to give away great prizes (I also have a giveaway at the end of this post).

Jumping Jack is the Perfect Easter Gift from Goliath Games!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

Goliath has made the perfect game to give kids for Easter. Since my granddaughter has a Switch Fairy in her house (someone who switches candy out for much healthier options), this is a perfect gift to give her, so she still gets something special for the holiday. Jumping Jack is a cute little rabbit, who sits on the 'ground' that is stuffed with carrots. Pull the carrots out one-by-one (according to the number you get on the spinner), and at some point he will jump right up in the air. If it's your turn, and you catch him when he jumps, you become the winner! 

It's My Fault for Not Going with my Gut Instinct


I spent over 2 hours, yes, I know that's a long time, sorting through photos and deciding which to order for my 'unlimited prints' free promotion (unlimited limit 250 prints). ;) I knew there would be shipping and handling. There was also a '10 free photo magnets' promotion going on as well, so part of my time was spent making magnets for family and friends. 3" magnets. I got all of my selections ready to go, edited and captioned and put in the cart. The cost was close to 60 dollars. Surely that must be a mistake, I thought. Nope, that was the cost of shipping and handling. -_-

Desert Harvest Skin Care Products

Desert Harvest has a product line I have been curious about. The main ingredient in many of their products is aloe, which I find to be a miracle cure for many things. In reading their 'about me' page (I saw in what I am writing about in a very condensed version) that they came up with a process using aloe to help a family member with her Interstitial Cystitis (IC). Up until that time, the family member thought it was okay/something to live with, having to go to the bathroom up to 60 times a day! The Desert Harvest line of Aloe Vera Capsules, made with a process that removes the things that affect you negatively, has been a wonderful invention for that family member and for many others.
