Google Home Mini Giveaway

This information is brought to you by HomeMembership. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


When I was younger, I didn't pay a lot of attention to warranties. Those days are long gone and now I always consider them, and sometimes buy them. Do you own your home? Or maybe you are a realtor that has thought about adding a home warranty plan to your listings to make the house more desirable to a buyer?

6 Incredible roofing tips for your home



The roof is one of the most neglected areas of the house. As the saying goes “Out of sight, out of mind”, is the best way to explain this phenomenon. Most people don’t pay any attention to it until it’s too late. Then, when the damage is done, they will try to rectify the situation to the best of their ability, but often to no avail.

Moosh-Moosh has the Softiest Moosh Around!

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


Do you take your stuffies with you on the go? I know we are getting closer to that time where my son isn't going to want to bring his or play with them any longer, so I am soaking these last minutes up as thoroughly as I possibly can. My son does for now, still like to play with his stuffed animals. Last night he wasn't feeling so great, and he surrounded himself with all of his favorite stuffies, just before he fell asleep. On this day though, we were simply taking our new Moosh-Moosh toys to the water, so they could be properly introduced to their new Florida home. We didn't take the tags off though, because I've got gift plans for each and every one of these little cuties, except one. We had to keep one (my son wanted to keep them ALL, but he likes to share too). Guess which one we kept? 

EatSmart Precision Tracker Crystal Clear Digital Bathroom Scale


The Precision Tracker from Eat Smart is a wonderful digital bathroom scale to have in the house. With many appealing features such as a 12" x 4" by 12" x 4" glass surface, large digital numbers, previous reading memory (it tells you how many lbs. up or down you have gained/lost since your last weigh-in), and backlit panel at night make it perfect for owning or gifting.


PurpleTrail Can Help You Make Any Graduation Celebration a Huge Success!


Do you plan ahead for graduation? If so, there's no time like the present and I cannot believe how fast 2019 is moving along already. I have planned for 3 out of my 4 children's graduations (the youngest isn't to that point, yet), and been present at my granddaughter's graduation ceremony as well (preschool graduations are so cute). Now it's time to help my bff plan for her son's high school graduation, and we are having a ball! Looking through PurpleTrail 2019 Graduation Collection, it's easy to see that the invitations and announcements will be a breeze to make. There are so many great choices!


With styles galore, there's not one person who wouldn't be pleased with this huge array of selections. These are not just the kinds of invitations and announcements you read, put on your refrigerator and then toss away when finished; these are type that you value and will want to hold on to for keepsakes.


All items sold at PurpleTrail can be fully customized to suit and meet your personal needs. You can use them for any graduation, pre-K to higher education. There really is a wide range of items, some you would definitely think of, and others that you might not initially, but once you do you love the idea. For me, the latter would be guestbooks. For some reason, it's just cool to sit down and browse through a guestbook years later, so having one for graduation makes good sense. It is a time where a culmination of people who were and are important to you come together to celebrate. Having a record of that day, would make a wonderful memento to treasure later in life.


Banners for me, can really make the actual decorations pop. There are many choices at PurpleTrail. I can't decide which I like best, the ones that show pictures from baby-to-now, or the ones that have a picture of them today. For my youngest son's birthday, I always put a banner up that has a picture of him when he was one-year-old. It's likely when he graduates high school, I will incorporate that photo onto a banner in one way or another...just because. Production and delivery on these banners, and on everything in fact, is quick and efficient.

Everything is Custom!

Like I noted above, you can customize any of the products you select, in any way you choose. That includes color, text, font, style, photos, etc. If however, you want something even more personalized, there are custom, designer services that are available. 

Made in the USA!

On a final note, let me say that everything at PurpleTrail is carefully crafted in the USA.

Tree Hut Sugar Scrubs Smell So Good!!


We went to the store and my daughter stopped at the Tree Hut sugar scrubs. She was oohing and ahhing and sniffing and smelling for a good few minutes and talking about how much she loves them and the different scents, all the way through the store (incidentally, I love them too). She wasn't dropping hints, she was just being gleeful about a product she loves. She's all about sugar scrubs, and other items you use on your face. Since she's grown up, it's just always been her thing. I've been looking to put together a nice little package to take to her in the hospital when it's time for her little one to arrive (25 days!), but up until now, I haven't really found anything that says BINGO! Now, I have, so guess what I've gotten for her? I've gotten her a Marula & Jasmine Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrub

Have You Seen Foot Dart? This Game Looks Like SO Much Fun!

This Photo was provided by https://www.buyfootdart.com/
This customize design velcros dart game is GIANT fun for the whole family. Anyone who has heard of foot darts is not surprised by it's size, but I was left with my mouth hanging wide open and saying, whoa! when I saw it. It's like playing darts only you are using your velcro tipped soccer balls and make the points by using your feet. I have four kids, but three of them are grown, so this is just the kind of outside game that each and everyone of us would like to play. I mean, how could you resist giving it a go, and once you do that, in our family, it's not too long until it gets competitive (in a friendly way, of course). That is especially true with my oldest two boys. They get crazy into going against each other, but they're laughing the whole time they do it. I'll admit it makes my heart happy to see them still playing games with each other at their ripe old ages of 31 and 25. ;)

DIY Safety Tips

Every now and again I accept a guest post. So happy to share this one with you today!


Doing some DIY at home isn’t something that should be done on a whim. Unfortunately though many people when they are working at home will ignore standard safety procedures. You might have done this so often without issue that it just becomes second nature, but trust us sooner or later an accident will happen.

If you are lucky it might just be cuts and bruises you have to show for it, but if you’re unlucky then it could be much worse. DIY accidents are more common than you might think which is why you should always follow proper safety measures. In this article, I’ am going to share some essential safety tips that anyone doing DIY needs to know.

$25 Visa Gift Card and Free Product Coupons Giveaway

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



Well, I have 2 great giveaways to talk about (one on my blog at the bottom of this post, and the big Birthday Bash giveaway from Little Bites), but first let me post an update on my new cam. I did take it out this weekend to try and learn the manual settings. You can see I have done okay on some elements of it, and not so much on the others. This one would have been nice if I'd have gotten my light right. For some reason, it seemed fine to me at the time (I thought it was good!), but it the end, these came out too dark around my son's face. The photos I took of the distance, however, turned out bright as could be (not posted, just noting it). It's a learning process. I'm enjoying it. I just wish I had more free time to learn leisurely, although I'm grateful for my job, even though it takes up so much of my time. Okay, enough said about this for now, let's talk about the giveaways. The one thing you can see I did get just right is that we brought along Entenmann's Little Bites, and coincidentally (wink wink) that is part of what will be in BOTH of the prize packages discussed below.

Clipper Oxford Shoes for Women Lugz Giveaway

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


One thing I found out very quickly with the line of work I started a couple of years ago is that my high heels were useless. Standing on a concrete floor all day, and walking through the building in heels just wasn't going to fly. I'd leave with my feet aching to the point where I would get home, make dinner and just want to go to sleep. That kind of life was not for me, but what to do? Thankfully it was an easy fix, or so I thought...switch to flats, which I did, but still ended up with such achy tootsies. We have to wear dress clothes, it's not optional. Now I had a dilemma. You can't wear athletic shoes with trousers. Enter Lugz and their new Women's Clipper Oxford shoes that are just sporty enough to pass for athletic wear on the weekend, and just dressy enough to pass for 'dress' shoes at my job!! I've been wearing these and no one has said a word about them breaking dress code, and at the end of the day my feet really do feel fine (whew). 

$15 Fandango Gift Card and Zak Resuable Water Bottle Giveaway

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



Let's talk water bottles. Why? Because if you like to make sure your kiddos are hydrated on the go, not all water bottles are created equal. Both my youngest son and my granddaughter carry water quite a bit, and they like to have them in their own bottles. Zak makes a great selection of them, as well as many other items (for kids and adults). Right now we're loving their new reusable water bottles from The Lego Movie 2 collection.
