We Have A New Baby In The Family & The Best Birthday Present Ever!






On June 11th , My Birthday, a beautiful baby boy was born. He is the cutest birthday buddy an Auntie could ever ask for. His big sister Peepers (my nickname for her) sure loves her new baby brother and sure shows in this picture of them. I have been known to be so busy I have forgotten my own birthday but you can bet your bottom dollar that won't happen now. We are having a big family reunion this coming weekend and I can't wait to see him again. The whole family is excited to see him. It's been two whole weeks since I cuddled him and I'm counting down to Saturday.





This is his proud daddy Adam introducing him for the first time to his big sister. I think they look pretty happy don't you!?!  He is such a good baby. He didn't even cry when they gave him his first shot. 




This is proud Momma snuggling her new baby boy and sweet daughter as they both get to know each other. Special memories for sure. I wish Cam had come too but he is a young boy with lots of energy and said it was to long of a wait for him. He'd see them at home. Waiting rooms are no fun! lol  He did come later but I had left for home. I'll nab some pics of him with his new baby brother this weekend.

QMT Windchime Review & Giveaway @ Peanut Butter and Whine!



My Dad and I used to sit on the front lawn and watch traffic on our little town street while listening to his favorite Windchime. He had several throughout the property and just loved hearing them ring out a special tune the wind had picked. I guess it rubbed off on me all those years listening to them because I love laying out reading a great book swinging on the lawn swing like I did with my Dad and listen to a beautiful Windchime. My Dad passed away last fall and I miss sitting with him and listening to the fine tunes. I just read a review about the QMT windchimes pictured above. Isn't this Windchime from QMT beautiful? And the sound is music to my ears! At their web site you can listen to the songs they sing created by the wind.  I just entered to win one at Connie's blog Peanut Butter and Whine where she is co-hosting the giveaway. This isn't the first review or giveaway I have posted about that was going on at Peanut Butter and Whine and I'm sure it won't be the last. I'd love to win one of these finely tuned QMT Windchimes and that's why I entered. If you would like learn more about these Windchimes and enter to win one too just click on any hyperlink in this post.

Got Ice? Are you constantly running out of ice? Born 2 Impress has your solution!


Ok I have a confession, I used to smoke and 2 years ago I quit but I picked up another habit. I'm hooked on chewing ice. To keep from smoking and from munching steady on food which would add a gazillion calories to my daily diet I started chewing ice. Then I decided to get healthier and quit drinking soda but I hate warm water. It has to be ice cold. I'm talking, frosted glass filled to the brim with ice. Then add refrigerated ice cold water to that. My problem is I can't keep the ice trays full. Not to mention everyone else in the family gets mad because I've hogged all the ice. So you can imagine how excited I was when I read a review by Born 2 Impress about this portable ice maker. It's called the Luma Comfort IM200SS Stainless Steel Portable Ice Maker. With this beautiful machine (it matches my appliances too) I would never run out of ice. If your always running out of ice or would love to take an ice maker with you while you travel check out the complete review at  
Born 2 Impress. The best part is she is giving one away. You could win one! Hurry, enter I did.

I Love Playing Board Games With My Family & Friends, How About You?



I love playing board games with my family and friends. We all have our favorites from Winning Moves and one of mine is Scrabble. I like getting together with a few of my friends and playing scrabble over brunch. We have great food , great conversation and great fun all at the same time. I just read a great review at Peanut Butter and Whine about the Winning Moves Scrabble Game. The new Scrabble Board is so much better than the one I have and use now. What I like about this Scrabble board is the letter tiles don't move around once you have placed them on the board because it has small raised tabs that keep the tile in place. I have Rheumatoid Arthiritis and I'm forever hitting the tiles and having to fix them because my hands no longer work properly. As some get older and develop Arthritis it's hard to place the tiles with out moving surrounding tiles. I have two elderly friends that I play Scrabble with and they have Arthritic hands. They too have problems laying the tiles and not hitting other tiles that are close to the one they are using. That is why I just love the design of this board. The game also helps us keep our minds sharp so it's a win win situation (pun intended). If you would like to learn more click on over to Peanut Butter and Whine to read her full review and watch the video she posted. While your there you can even enter to win one. I did. So what are you waiting for go enter.

I Just Found The Perfect Way To Store Butter. Want To Know How?



I love real butter. Yes it is my down fall. I have quit drinking soda and cut back on coffee but not my real butter. I won't eat margarine because I'm a true believer that it is worse for you than the good Ole fashioned wholesome butter. If your like me and need your real butter you know how expensive it is right. The only problem is I like my butter soft for things like toast. However, I don't want it to spoil from sitting out. Yes I could put it in the microwave but usually the inside melts and makes a mess when you cut into it. Again wasteful and messy. So in the frig it goes and I put up with it being hard or I have to take it out an hour before hand to allow it to soften. Well not no more. Not if you have the a Butter Bell Crock. This little bit of ingenious will keep your butter fresh and soft. Plus it comes in so many different decors your just going to love it. Where did I find this you might ask? From the Peanut Butter and Wine blog post. If you want to know how it works and more about this fantastic product your going to have to stop by her blog and check it out. The fun part is you can enter to win one too while your there. Peanut Butter and Wine is having a giveaway for one right now so don't delay head on over and enter for your chance to win one. For those who like Margarine and want yours soft it will keep that soft and fresh too. I just prefer Butter.

Do You #Love The Rain? Do You Want To Know How Much Rain Your #Garden Is Getting?






I like to know how much rain my garden has had so I can tell how much I need to water myself. It's important for your garden to receive enough water to flourish but also it can harm your garden if it gets to much water. For example if your soil stays to wet and soggy your potato's can rot in the ground. My Father always wanted to know how much rain or snow we received during a storm or what the temperature low or high was for the day. Seeing him check the thermometer and rain gauge every day I guess rubbed off on me. When I saw this beautiful rain gauge at Holiday Contest and Sweeps I just had to stop and check it out. They are having a giveaway to win one. How awesome is that right! Well you can enter too. Just click on any link in this post and it will take you to their site. Good Luck!

Dragonfly Sweetnest And Sven Clogs Means A Great Review & Giveaway!



With RA I have trouble finding anything I can wear on my feet for shoes. Crocks and Clogs are the only two shoes I have found that I can wear. Come winter time my feet get real cold in the Crocks. My summer Clogs are to cold for winter so when I saw this pair with the puffed collar I had to check more into this company. I learned they had lined and boot ones at Sven Clogs.  I was so happy. I even found on their web site that they can make specialty shoes as well. This was a big deal because I just may be able to get a pair of Clog Boots in the future. Dragonfly Sweetness has a giveaway going on for a pair of Sven Clogs.  To see and learn more check out the complete review at Dragonfly Sweetnest and don't forget to enter while you are there.

    Don't Miss It #Enter #RYOBI Cordless 40 Volt Chainsaw #Giveaway





    I'm so excited about this RYOBI giveaway~! We have several acres here that is in desperate need of some trimming. The pine trees are huge beautiful trees but you can't tell because of all the leave-less branches that go all the way to the ground which takes away from their beauty. I love the look of a nice groomed pine grove. We can't even walk around the property right now amongst the trees because the branches are so thick and not to mention ugly with no leaves. It looks like something out of a horror movie at night time. I have been wanting to trim them to improve the look and function of the property but I don't have the tools to do it with. That is when I stumbled across Rainy Day Pennies blog giveaway where the Holiday Contest Sweeps has a  RYOBI Cordless 40 Volt Chainsaw giveaway. I think it's  just the tool I have been needing to get the job done. Check out the complete review at Rainy Day Pennies and while your there enter too~!

    From The Ground Up!

    First we had to move a mountain in order to have flat ground to build the garage on. That was the first obstacle  we faced.


    Then we have to get that dirt from the  mountain on the other side of the house to fill where the mountain dropped down and build it up for the spot to put the garage.


    Once the ground work was done then the fun begun. Time to set up for the slab........


    Now all that has to be done to have a  nice slab is to pour and work the cement. That sounds a lot easier than it is. The guys worked hard all day..........

    But there was also some smiles during all this hard work and in the end there sat a beautiful slab just waiting for a garage to be built on top of it. 

    I want to thank all our friends and relatives for helping in this huge project. It was appreciated more than you will ever know~!
