Links to this post
Happy Thanksgiving to All of You!!!
I hope you enjoy this day with special friends and family and remember to give thanks!


  1. The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade was first held in 1924...featuring animals from Central Park Zoo and Macy's employees
  2. The actual "Pumpkin Pie" was not recorded until 1796, and was actually called "Pompkin Pie"
  3. The "Wishbone" originated with an ancient civilization called The Etruscans in Italy
  4. Did you know that only Male Turkeys gobble? It's true...they do it to attract hens during mating season and Wild Turkeys tend to gobble even more!
  5. The first Thanksgiving celebration lasted 3 days...Wow!
  6. Cranberries got their name from the Pilgrims, who called them "craneberries" because the drooping pink blossoms in the spring reminded them of a crane.
  7. Although proclaimed a holiday by George Washington, Thanksgiving was not celebrated as a regular holiday until 1863, when Abraham Lincoln proclaimed it a regularly celebrated national holiday.
  8. The average Turkey has between 3000 and 3500 feathers!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Personalized Pacifiers? I say, YES! 

I've had four awesome children and everyone of them used a pacifier...two of them had a very strong pacifier addiction! I remember countless pacifiers and wondering how the babysitter or daycare would ever be able to know which one belonged to my child.

MAM has solved the dilemma with personalized pacifiers

Let your imagination take you away with Liquid Chalkers Markers! #Review

Links to this post

I may not be the most creative person in the world, but I do have some very talented and creative children so when I had the opportunity to review Liquid Chalkers Markers, I was more than excited. I knew that my oldest daughter, Amanda, would really appreciate them and use them to decorate and have some fun!
When I gave them to her and explained what kind of markers they were, she had all kinds of ideas for the 8-pack and 4-pack. Below are a few of her creations...the first one is Papa Smurf and the second is just something pretty! My daughters also had fun painting the windows on the cars...great for high school games or events!

NAPA KNOW HOW: How Much Do You Know?
The holiday season is rapidly approaching, and for a lot of us that means it's ROAD TRIP time! Long trips can be taxing on your vehicle, which makes it even more important that it's kept in tip top shape before your take off.
The question is...do you know what it takes to keep up with your vehicles needs? How "car competent" are you?

Which Home is the Right Home?

Links to this post
For so many people, the home you purchase is the home you plan to live in for a long duration, so when starting the process of searching for the perfect house there are many things to consider.



For those buying a brand new house the expectations would be that the home would not come with any existing problems or needed repairs. Everything should be fully functional and in excellent working order. On the other hand, when considering an older home, one never knows what issues may be discovered.

An older home could have years of wear and tear, although not obvious to the naked eye. A potential buyer of an older home will need to understand that in some cases, additional funds will need to be available in order to make the home their own or to make necessary renovations. If an older home is purchased without needed adjustments, the buyer should consider themselves extremely lucky to have found such a place and although rare, they do exist.

When considering a Kolter New Home, the home buyer is not merely buying a new home, they are purchasing a dream and a lifestyle. The homeowner can be confident that their new home is exactly as they wanted it to be, with the desired amenities. Buying a home is most likely the most significant purchase one will make, so be sure that it is one you can be proud of.

Motorcycle Safety is a Serious Concern.

Links to this post
Motorcycles have never been one of my favorite methods of transportation. I have to admit that they look like a lot of fun to ride and are extremely economical but the fear of accidents prevents me from taking part in the motorcycle craze. My brother in law was recently involved in an accident and although it was not his fault at all, he was on a motorcycle. He was stopped at a red light and was hit from behind. The driver of the vehicle that hit him was apparently not paying attention and failed to stop in time. He was severely injured and will continue to suffer from his injuries for the rest of his life.
