Only YOU Can Prevent Wildfires

October is Fire Prevention Month
The sad truth is that nearly 9 out of 10 wildfires are still caused by humans: 
  • In 2014 there were 7,933 wildfires caused by lightning, but 55,679 wildfires caused by human error (as reported to the National Interagency Fire Center).
  • In 2014 more than 3.5 million acres burned due to wildfires in the U.S. of those, more than 1.5 million acres burned due to human-caused wildfires.

2015 Holiday Gift Guide: Egoistic Noir Instant Coffee

 Having 3 boys, 2 in school, and working full time I often catch myself running out the door in the morning with no breakfast, lunch or the most important thing... coffee. Especially when I forgot to make it. I do not like instant coffee because it leaves such a bitter after taste in my mouth. Plus, you have to use what seems like boiling water and then you have to wait to drink it. So it really defeats the purpose of "instant" coffee.

2015 Holiday Gift Guide: Oh No There are Monsters in my books


Ok so how many parents have children that are afraid of monsters. I'll have to admit, I'm one of them. My boys keep "monster away spray" by their beds. But when I got the Monster books, they were excited to read about them.

They first wanted to read "Dining with Monsters" by Agnes Baruzzi (probably because the word "disgusting" is on the cover. Yes can you tell I have boys). Monkey is learning to count but can not read. Bean can read so he decided to read it to Monkey and had him count. The book tells you the monster and you get to flip out the page and count the creatures they ate. The boys had fun with this one. Who knew that the ghostly haunter, skitty-skatz gobbled up 7 flying bats.

2015 Holiday Gift Guide: Multi Flask Total Hydration System

Ok, so Im not going to lie... when I was given this bottle, I had no idea what to do with it. I own a water bottle and and infuser so I was familiar with that part.

The Multi Flask is for fruit infused water, filtered drinks, powdered drinks, and hot and cold beverages. It includes the outer shell for water, inner shell for insulated drinks, glass inner shell (for hot or cold), a tea strainer for fresh tea, a fruit infuser, an agitator for mixing powdered drinks, a sipper lid, a spout lid, a silicone base insert for the glass inner and a mesh carry bag.

October ADD/ADHD Awareness Month

Meet Bubba my oldest son!

He looks like a normal healthy almost 11 year old boy right... Well he is but he also suffers from ADHD a condition that I knew very little about except that the kids are usually horrible. That is not the case at all Bubba is one of the sweetest and most caring young men you will meet and has a great love for God and his family. But he struggles with sitting still and focusing while at school and even at home while doing homework. But that doesn't make him a bad kid does it?? Well in the eyes of some YES it made a horrible kid and they let him know that and tore this sweet boy down by bullying him.
