Deluxe Kroger Ice Cream : 6 month giveaway!!!

Y'all know that Kroger is my all time favorite store. I think I keep my particular store in business :) What I love the most about Kroger is the value that I feel I get with my money. So of course I did a happy dance when they asked me to try out their Deluxe Ice Cream.

Teacher knows best: Getting your kids to write!

I am blessed to live next to a elementary school teacher who loves my kids and we love her!! She has multiple education degrees and is the first person I run to when I am worried about speech, development or anything learning related!! She has agreed to write a weekly post for me on some common concerns involving little ones and just great tips! If you have a topic that you would like to see addressed, please e-mail me at

It Doesn’t Have to be Shakespeare

Writing is one of the subjects many kids struggle with. From “I don’t know what to write” to “I can’t spell this word”, teachers sometimes battle with kids to get them to write anything. One of my friends recently shared with me how she got her boys, 4th and 1st graders, interested in writing.

Over the summer, they both started online blogs. She had them choose the background they wanted, how they wanted it to be set up, helped them invite friends and family to follow their blogs, and sent them on their ways. The older one types his own entries then he and Mom edit them. The younger one dictates as Mom types. Both boys love seeing their work published instantly and the comments that follow.

Wordpress and Blogspot both offer free blogs with plenty of privacy features.

Some Changes are a'comin.....

Lately I have been convicted. This is not a far stretch for me. I feel convicted about a lot of things. This conviction, however is about this blog. Its going in a direction that I had not envisioned. I am writing, my love, less and finding recipes more. Which is fine.... but my creative outlet is not so creative anymore.

Its making me wonder about this blog and what direction and priority I am placing on it. I try to listen to the Lord's voice on the direction for my life and I am feeling like there are some changes a'comin down the pike. Which is exciting and scary at the same time.

I have decided to take this week and really search out HIS will for the direction in my life. So..... I will not be posting less this week. Although I will be having 2 awesome giveaways this make sure you check them out!
I hope everyone has an awesome week!!!
