American Game Players Zach 3

This is a sponsored post, however all opinions are 100% my own. When I was a teenager, we lived across the street from a bowling alley. My parents were in a bowling league, and they played or practiced several times a week. While they were doing their bowling thing, my sister and I would be ...

My kids leave a trail of toys from their bedroom through the living room and yes even in the kitchen. Does this sound familiar to you? Tell me I am not alone on this one please. I have tried threatening to throw toys away, hiding the toys, living with it, and just about every other ...

Pan Seared Brussels Sprout Salad

I know a lot of people aren't fans of Brussels Sprouts but my family loves them.  We like them roasted and baked but we also like them pan seared.  One of my favorite recipes is this Pan Seared Brussels Sprout Salad.  It's not a traditional combination but the flavors are delicious together.  I recently received ...

Pass the Bag to Donate Your Preloved Clothing

With a big family, and lots of children, someone is ALWAYS outgrowing clothing.  Sometimes by the time it's been passed through brothers the items are pretty worn out and not in good shape, other times it seems they grow into and out of things so fast that the items look new still.  We've sold clothes ...

We bake a lot.  Most weeks we are baking 4-6 days a week - dozens and dozens of muffins and cookies, pumpkin bars, cupcakes, cakes, and more.  It's a messy job.  I've been planning to organize the supplies that I use regularly but I just keep putting it off.  This week I received a Dymo ...

A few weeks ago I got to head out to Ann Arbor, Michigan, to visit the Domino's headquarters.  While there, we had a whole lot of pizza, learned how to make a pizza, and learned a whole lot about the Domino's company and brand in general.  There's a lot that may surprise you that you ...

Texture- Like Netflix for Magazines

Confession: I love People Magazine. It's super expensive though, and I cannot justify the expense of a subscription, so we don't get it anymore.

Fitness Challenge for Toddlers

Fitness Challenge for Toddlers
