This is a cookie fruit thin. I love these things. They are de-licious. I picked them up because I had a coupon. And at $3.50 or more a bag, a coupon is well needed…but seriously, these things are soooo good! They have 8 grams of whole grains (see the flax seed?), have fruit (duh!), and are just oh so yummy. Even Captain Fussybuckets agrees! I’ve only tried the blueberry brown sugar, but there are also some other flavors….like Fig and Honey, Cranberry Citrus Oat, and Chocolate Raspberry. I think I’ll stick with my blueberry cookie. Okay, yes, it IS a [...]

The choice of how to feed your infant is a very personal choice, but sometimes it isn’t a choice at all. We all have heard that breastfeeding is best, but when it simply cannot work, then baby formula is the next best thing. I feel comfortable in telling you that Baby D is a Parent’s Choice formula user. It wasn’t a decision, but a necessity. I was upset because I thought “oh, we’re wasting so much money on formula” and it is a [...]

Remember this post? Who Made The Breakfast Rules, Anyway? Well, keep that in mind while you're reading!! I know many people know and love Monkey Bread. I, however, did not know about this (or had forgotten) until I was looking for a special Christmas recipe a couple of years ago. This recipe is right up my alley…simple, sugary, and YUMMY! When we worked at the children's home, this recipe was a HUGE hit. Even the time that it didn't get cooked all the way through in time for breakfast….the boys actually picked it apart and [...]

The other day, I was blog surfing and I came upon this link: “Deal”icious Mom: Ocean In A Bottle Craft. How awesome! Captain Fussybuckets has been asking to go to the beach, so I thought that this would be the perfect Mommy-Son while Baby D is sleeping craft! I saved a sports drink bottle, found some Baby Oil in the cabinet, and we went in search of shells and cool rocks outside. I knew that there were two snail shells in the front garden, because CF always picks them out and wants to “go check [...]

I was recently introduced to the online store, Shabby Apple. Shabby Apple is a pretty cute little store, with clothes for women and girls. They have jewelry, bridesmaids’ dresses, swimsuits, skirts and dresses, and more! Shabby Apple has THE cutest little girls’ dresses! These dresses alone make me wish I had a girl: Make sure to check the selection of women’s clothes and accessories, too! Check out this Fifth Ave. dress that was featured [...]

The browser window to remind me to order new checks has been open on my laptop for three days. I opened it to start the process of ordering checks and somehow got sidetracked (with this blog maybe??) We moved well over a month ago now and we need new checks. But wait…..the checks that we are using are from … wait for it….the address of the house we lived in BEFORE moving to Cherokee! We haven’t lived there since January of 2010!! Seriously, just order the checks, woman! I’m not usually this horrible at procrastinating. Most things really, really [...]

Vocalpoint recently gave me the opportunity to try the NEW Downy UnStopables in-wash scent booster. I could smell the booster through the package, so I knew it was going to be strong. Our family has skin allergies and so I thought it would be best to pass it along for my wonderful sister-in-law to try. She reported back that she decided to only use 1/3 of the suggested amount and the scent wasn’t as strong on the clothes. She mentioned that it was easy to just sprinkle the UnStopables in the washer, as well! Continue reading Review: Downy UnStopables
