• Family Vacation Idaho Style!! With The Help of Winning Moves Games!

    July 1st was the start of THE BEST vacation! Our kids drove up to Sandpoint, Idaho to surprise The Husband ‘s for his 70th birthday.  What a GREAT surprise that was! More surprising is I was able to keep my big mouth shut for an ENTIRE year!! Are you as surprised as I am?? Alice in the background didn’t look excited for a 3-day car trip. Dan wasn’t too sure either from the look on his face. HOWEVER, it was THE BEST week I’ve had in years. From fishing, daughter Selena was the fishing champ with a total of 6 catchs. (We did catch and release fishing). BTW, don’t you…

  • NOVICA $50 Gift Card

    NOVICA Treasures From Around The World! #NOVICA #GIVEAWAY

    Y’all should sit down for this one! Especially Pam from NOVICA! I did NOT order a CONNIE Ring, as Pam referrers to them. A BIG, BOLD, silver, knuckle to knuckle ring. But NOT this time!! Not this time……….. wait, what?!?! WHO AM I!?!?!? Trust me, it took every ounce of willpower I had. Have you SEEN the selection of amazing rings on the NOVICA site?!??!?! (I also probably own a good amount of them)  All hand made, all them unique and actually made by artisans I would never have the chance to meet in real life. My choices arrived from Bali and The Andes Mountains. We all know this G’ma…

    Hello October! $50 Your WAY Giveaway

    Well, September sure left like a LION! Snow! High winds. What kind of high winds? The kind of wind that tore the door off the BRAND NEW John Deere Tractor!!!!!! BLEW the door RIGHT OFF!! Other than that September was a pretty calm month. Made a new friend at the Goodwill store of all places. We are like two peas in a pod. Similar life paths including a move to Sandpoint! The house is still a work in progress. Deck… still not done. Now that we have snow I’m doubtful that my front porch or deck will be done before spring. Staying hopeful. pfffffttttttt who are we kidding? I’m not…

  • Ultra-Sleeves iPad Protection!

    I live in the San Diego area. I take care of my Granddaughter Alice at her house, which is about 5 minutes from the beach. I can actually see the ocean from her front room. Who wouldn’t want to spend there day HERE!?! Everyday, I pack up my backpack, grab my iPad and head to Carlsbad. I don’t go ANYWHERE without my iPad!! My iPad is great for entertaining Alice, taking pictures, checking email and so on. BUT, between a messy 2 year old, the beach, the pool and food, I worry that my much beloved iPad will suffer. (I LOVE my iPad!!) I can protect it from drops and…

  • Hapimomi App Review

    I was drawn to this app first by the name. Hapimomi. How cute is that?!?! This is a free family sharing organizational app. What makes this app so amazing is the way it works. After I signed up as the head of the household, I invited DH to join. Once he downloaded the app, we can coordinate everything from To Do lists, Calendar, Shopping!! I think I’m most excited about the shopping section. I can add as many stores as I want and add things to my shopping list. It doesn’t matter which one of us is shopping, we have a current list!! I can start a diary. I can…
