Picnics & Popsicles

I only recommend products or services I believe in.  Well, summer has struck North Carolina with a vengeance (and I know we are not alone)! Two straight weeks of temps in the mid to high 90s, plus a few 100 degree days in there AND almost no rain. Basically the moment the kids got out of school we hit a heat wave that kept them in the house all. day. long. Finally, the high temps fell to a balmy 88 degrees and we took the opportunity to pack up a quick picnic lunch and enjoy some time outside. The kids were so excited to play outdoors. …

Well, it’s official! Even if the calendar doesn’t quite agree, summer is here. And it has hit North Carolina with a vengeance. We are only on day 6 of summer break and I’m ready for fall. What the heck am I going to do to survive the next 10 weeks of “vacation”?!? It’s too hot to do anything outside. I’m a fair-skinned redhead convinced I will die from spontaneous combustion if I go outside when it’s over 90. Air conditioning and ice pops are my best friends. …

It’s time for fireflies, outdoor fun, barbecues, and S’Mores! Even though we have two weeks left of school the unofficial kickoff to summer is here! I don’t know about yours, but my kids have pretty much checked out of school already, which is unfortunate since they have EOGs (comprehensive end of the year testing) next week. Hopefully, we can keep it together just a little bit longer! I know I am counting down the days until school’s out –>> did you see the countdown clock in my sidebar, lol?!? We got a little taste of …

Five Tips to Protect Yourself from Theft [review JLeer jeans giveaway]

Five Tips to Protect Yourself from Theft [review JLeer jeans giveaway]

Disclosure: I was provided a pair of JLeer jeans in exchange for an open and honest review. All opinions are my own. A friend recently had her purse stolen while shopping. She turned away from her cart for just a few seconds to put something back on the shelf, and when she turned around it was gone. Less than 5 seconds is all it took for her life to be turned upside down. Everything was in there. Her cell phone, keys, checkbook, license, credit/debit cards, photos, and address book filled with all kinds of personal information. Everything that you don’t want a stranger to get their hands on. Until my friend’s experience, I’d never given much thought to theft. I mean I know it happens all the time, but “not to me”. And I’m …
