It's time to grab some popcorn, your favorite snack and a drink along with all the kids for a family movie night. The Star is being released TODAY on DVD, Digital and Blu-Ray! My family got the privilege to review the DVD before it was released. Somehow we missed this wonderful movie while it was in the theater, but I am super excited to own it for my family.

Munk Pack for a Great Snack (Giveaway)

Munk Pack

I love finding healthy snacks that my whole family can enjoy. Since we have been trying to go Gluten Free it has become a little more difficult to find snacks that everyone likes. The kids can be very picky when it comes to their snacks and getting them to give up stuff is hard. Recently I was given the opportunity to review some Munk Pack Oatmeal Fruit Squeeze with my kids.

Monster Jam is Headed to Cleveland




This year our family is looking forward to Valentine’s Day and it’s not because of flowers or chocolates. Though my boys will never turn away chocolates nor would I flowers. Instead we are excited because we will be going to see Monster Jam when it comes to Cleveland, Ohio! The monster trucks are taking over the town Saturday, February 17th through Sunday, February 18th 2018.



 The premier monster truck series, Monster Jam attracts more than four million fans annually at arenas and stadiums throughout the world. Monster Jam events showcase freestyle and racing competition among custom-designed machines that average 12 feet tall by 12 feet wide, sit atop 66-inch-tall tires and weigh a MINIMUM of 10,000 pounds. Built for short, high-powered bursts of speed, monster trucks generate 1,500 to 2,000 horsepower and are capable of speeds of up to 100 miles per hour. Monster trucks can fly up to 125 to 130 feet (a distance greater than 14 cars side-by-side) and up to 35 feet in the air.
 Sounds awesome, right?? 

Making Plarn to Help the Homeless


With living in Ohio you know that we get all 4 seasons and for the homeless that can be tricky with sleeping outdoors. They lay on the grounds in the rain and snow which leaves their bodies pron to getting sick easily. Some of the ladies from my church has started making sleeping mats for the local homeless out of Plarn. Since these mats are made out of re-purposed plastic store bags it gets the homeless off the ground. The mats are more comfortable then sleeping on the ground for the homeless as well. The mats also create a barrier between the ground and the body, to help retain body heat while sleeping. Which will also help the homeless from getting sick as easily.

The Toughest Monster Trucks Tour Took Over Youngstown


One thing I loved as a child was seeing Monster Trucks and I have instilled that love into my children. While I know it is super loud and can be dusty when the show is indoors but the adrenaline you get when the engines get cranked up is awesome. I love that Monster Trucks is no longer just a thing boys like. I love seeing all the little girls with their dad's at the shows enjoying it and getting into it as much as the boys.

One thing that all my children from the oldest to the youngest love to do is build with blocks. I love to see their creativity flow when they are building and creating their masterpieces. Each year the older kids usually put together a piece to enter in the county fair. We as a family will sit down in the evenings and just build stuff together or have races to see who can build the biggest tower, neatest car. The possibilities are endless to what the kids come up with as to what we will be making.

A Honey Pot even Pooh would Love

One thing that I love to do for the Holiday's is bake. I bake for my children, family and friends and everyone seems to have a different thing I make that is their favorite. So when the Holiday's come around I usually spend days on end in the kitchen making everyone's favorites. But as long as everyone leaves happy because they got their favorites is all the thanks I need. I love to see everyone happy and enjoying their favorite baked treats.

25 Kitchen Tips and Tricks

Image result for kitchen tips

So I am always finding new little tricks to help me in the kitchen and I wanted to share some with you. I have a list of 25 Kitchen Tips for you below. If you try and any let me know how they work for you or if you have a tip feel free to leave it in a comment.

Taco Night - Make your own crunchy taco shells without frying. If your corn or flour tortillas are stiff, heat them quickly on a hot griddle, then lightly spray both sides with cooking oil. Drape tortillas over two clean bars of an oven rack and bake at 375*F until crisp, about 10 minutes. 

Cheese Plate - The perfect cheese plate is all about balance. Choose cow, sheep, and goat varieties from distinct categories - creamy, crumbly, funky, fresh. Serve with something pickled, salty (olives), crunchy (nuts), and sweet (fruit). Good bread and crisp crackers are the finishing touches. 

Cool Down - An ice pack is handy for everything from a black eye to a box lunch. An inexpensive, simple alternative is to soak a basic kitchen sponge in water and freeze it in a small ziplock bag. As the water melts, it is reabsorbed by the sponge, which stays sealed inside.

Tips for Avoiding Investment Fraud

Tips for Avoiding Investment Fraud

 Raising a family isn’t easy on your bank account. No matter if your child is in diapers, just starting preschool or about to head off for college, you might find yourself feeling stretched financially, which can make you more than a bit nervous about your financial future. While an insurance agency can help you maintain your financial health, investing can help you improve your financial health. That being said, you’ve got to be careful about how you invest and whom you invest with as well.

One thing that my boys and their dad love is hot and spicy food. I on the other hand try to avoid it because it bothers my stomach something fierce. So when cooking dinners I try to sometimes accommodate their love for hot and spicy foods. The other night while making fried chicken I cooked up some buffalo chicken wings for Mr. Anderson. I used Moore's Original Buffalo Wing Sauce on the wings and they were a hit!

Bridgeway Academy Ready To Aid Orphaned Students From Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow (ECOT) Closure

Homeschooling Programs and Curriculum – Bridgeway Academy

Bridgeway Academy, which pioneered personalized learning in homeschools and schools across the U.S. and around the world, today announced it is ready to accept students seeking an alternative to the closing Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow (ECOT) school. Bridgeway’s proven online and textbook homeschool solutions are a natural fit for ECOT students who are already accustomed to flexible schedules, live online sessions and individualized self-paced learning. Many ECOT students chose the online charter school due to illnesses, social concerns, learning disabilities or other struggles. As a result, returning to their previous classroom setting is not an option. Therefore, the transition to Bridgeway Academy is appealing.

“This is an unfortunate nightmare for our family. Brick and mortar schools do not work for us and the other online options are already overwhelmed. They’re saying the availability will be ‘first come, first served’ and it’s very stressful for students like mine who simply cannot attend a regular classroom,” says ECOT parent Jennifer Ladoszka.

Briggs True Texas Sauces & Seasonings (Fried Chicken Recipe) & GIVEAWAY

Briggs True

One thing that I love is a challenge when it comes to cooking. Recently Bubba asked why I never make fried chicken for dinner. So I thought why not take a chance at it and surprisingly it came out pretty good so I thought I would share the recipe with you. I also want to share my secret ingredient with you that I used to give my chicken a great flavor. I recently received some wonderful stuff from Briggs True for my Holiday Gift Guide. I got the Texas Seasoning & Rub, Texas Mustard Sauce and the Strawberry Habanero Jelly.
