An Outdoor TV Would Sure Be Nice! Veranda Series of SunBriteTVs

There used to be a time when I thought purchases should be economical and practical more than enjoyable. It sounds like a no-brainer that the latter would be a primary factor, but for me, it was not. These days, however, I want to be surrounded by people and things that make me happy, that includes where I live, and what is in it> When I saw that Best Buy had this weatherproof  Veranda Series of SunBrite TVs built for outside areas, I was sold. I'd love to have a place like this where my family and I could sit and watch a fun show together, and still be in the great outdoors.

HubPlus Portable Dual Charger with Giveaway

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

The HubPlus Portable Charger from MyCharge is a great idea not only because it allows you to charge your electronic devices when there is no electricity available, or when you are on the go, but also because it charges both Android and some Apple devices (at the same time, if you'd like). If you're looking for a gift for Father's Day, this might be a great suggestion, don't you think? Seems like almost everyone has something these days that needs to be charged. Every dad I know certainly does.

Happy Memorial Day and Welch's!

The last big gathering we had was for my oldest granddaughter's birthday (I now have 3 grandchildren...1 who just turned 6-years-old, 1 who is just a couple of months old, and one on the way, because my second oldest son's first child is due in early January). So just like that, I went from a youthful (*ahem*) mom to a grandma of 3, and I couldn't love it more!! Grandbabies are magical. 

At my oldest granddaughter's party, my grandbabe who is the healthiest eater I know (thanks to her awesome parents), was indulging in things I'd not seen her eat before. When we got back to her place afterwards, she didn't want to eat her dinner; she said she was full. I said, 'well, she did eat at the party.' She said, "Grandma's right! I had chips, cheese curls and cake." We all stopped and laughed, but in reality, that kind of a party diet isn't really funny. Thankfully, it was a one-time event (we all get to indulge once in awhile), but when we have our get-together for Memorial Day weekend, I want to make sure there are a lot of healthier options that the little ones there will love. Welch's is always a great option (they use real fruit), and the Welch's Fruit'n Yogurt Snacks are all the rage in our house right now.

How to Choose a Moving Company

Moving can be a stressful experience for many families, and choosing the right moving service company can be the determining factor in whether or not a move goes smoothly. There are many moving services Tampa FL but not every moving service has the same level of experience, expertise, and care in moving you and your families’ personal belongings. Moving companies often have competitive rates, so you need to know what other types of factors to consider when choosing movers.

Below are several tips for choosing the right moving company for you.

Night Night Bible Stories Giveaway with 5 Winners!

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

Going to see my new grandbaby today and this book is going along with me. I'm going to give it to her mama so she can read it to the little one here and there, and then my baby grand can read it to her parents (or herself) as she gets older too! Establishing a night time routine for reading is soothing, comforting and bonding too. Amy Parker's Night Night Bible Stories is a padded, bite-sized (easy for kids to hold) book, full of bright colorful pictures kids  will love. It's a great way to introduce beloved Bible story favorites to them.

Moosh Moosh to the Rescue (if you're in search of something cute and affordable for kids)

Yep, I've mentioned it before, and its true; I know the days of my son loving stuffed animals is drawing to a near. It's not gone yet though, so I'm enjoying his youth and innocence to the hilt, until he moves on to more 'mature things.' But now that I've said that, do we ever really outgrow stuffies that we love?  I'm 48 and I still enjoy a cute little stuffed animal every now and again. My son loves the Moosh Moosh line, not only because they are cute, but also because you can moosh them and they still hold their shape, plus they make a great pillow in the car! He recently took his favorite, Spike the Monster, to the park with us. I guess Spike had a good time too, he looks happy anyway, and he didn't seem to mind the heat. ;)

Extra Large Beach Bag or Pool Tote with Soft Cooler

If we are headed to the park, pool or beach, there are a few things that must be true for our carrying tote. One, it must have an easy-to-access zippered pocket for my loose items, such as my jewelry and/or my driver's license. It must be very roomy (we take a lot of stuff!), and it has to breathe well, since sometimes our wet swimsuits make their way into the bag. This extra large tote does the trick for all of those things, and it has a secret surprise.

Mother's Day Wish List for Cat Lovers

So I'm thinking, having recently become a 'cat person' (we'd always owned dogs, never a cat), and realizing late in life, how absolutely cool these little companions can be, that a great gift for Mother's Day would be a gathering of all these nifty little gadgets and things that I want for our adoptee. She may be a little older than most cats who are adopted (we got her at 10, she is 11 now) but we are making up for her time spent in the no-kill shelter (which was awesome, but not near as one-on-one as she gets here with me and her boy). Now that she's so comfortable with us, and us with her, there are so many things I want to get for her, and for me, that would make things even that much better. What's on the list? Let's take a look...

#LoveOutLoud Beautiful Mother's Day Floral Bouquets from Teleflora

Flowers are always a good idea for Mother's Day; flowers from Teleflora are always a GREAT idea because not only do you get these gorgeous blooms, but you also get these amazing reusable vases and containers that they come in. These have fast become some of my mom's most favorite keepsakes (and as you all know, if your child, even a grown child, gives it to's an instant keepsake).

Sometimes my mom knows she is going to get flowers, other times it's a big surprise, like this time!! I knew, however, that she was going to love the Regal Blossoms Bouquet for Mother's Day the second I saw it because purple and red are her favorite colors, but you don't often find them together. This vase, has them both and she's mentioned it the last three times we have spoken on the phone. She loves the flowers too, and intends to press one rose as a keepsake (something she always does).  This bouquet has fresh pink roses, huge white lilies and a variety of purple flowers. They smell amazing and they look beautiful too. What mom wouldn't love this gorgeous bouquet hand delivered to their doorstep this year?
