My Little Free Library - Doctor Who Style

As a little girl my first trip to the library was like a dream.   I love books and the fact that there was a place with more books than I could fit in my bedroom was so exciting!   My first library experience was in 2nd grade in public school.   At first I was so overwhelmed I didn’t know where to start.  But over time I found some of my favorite books.  My first memory of books I was very into in 2nd grade was The Littles.  They were little people (I was always the smallest in my class), and they did fun and extraordinary things.   From there I read Mandie books, The Chronicles of Narnia, The Hobbit, Nancy Drew, Trixie Beldon and so many more.   I was whisked on adventure after adventure in the safety of my bedroom.  33 years later and here I am reading more than ever.  
Fact - did you know 95% of kids in my sons class have never been to a local library? Fact - 1 in 4 children in America grow up without learning how to read.  
 I could list so many more facts but at the end of the d…

My 2018/2019 Favorite Amazon Purchases

We use amazon a lot here.  Being sick every day of my life, amazon makes it so much easier to shop whether it's for me, my family or for gifts.  I love watching youtube videos of other people's favorite items, so that gave me an idea.  Why not do a blog post of mine! 


Rubbermaid Modular Food Storage Cereal Container with Flip Top.  This is the perfect size to fit large boxes of cereal in.  I've had my first one for years but just ended up getting a second one because we love it so much!  No more stale cereal!



Nissin Chicken Ramen Noodle - I saw these on a youtube video and had to get them for my kids.  You need a large bowl to make these in, in order to put all the water recommended in it.  We also added some vegetables and topped with sriracha.  My boys said these were the best ever.  I thought they were good but not "the best".  




Sistema To Go Collection 1.18 oz. Salad Dressing Containers.  These have worked great for my boys lunches!  I needed something to send i…

Trying The Whole Wahlburgers Menu - Part 2

Another fun time at Wahlburgers!  I completely forgot to take pictures this time so we will have to go picture free.  I know, it stinks!  Feel free to do a google search so you can see what everything looks like.  I found pictures on the Wahlburgers facebook page and ours looked like the picture!  You know how rare and beautiful that is?

I haven't been feeling well at all lately.  Partly due to my Lyme disease, partly because of hormones and partly because of circumstances completely out of my control.  I just feel like garbage a lot. And when I feel like garbage, I just want someone else to cook for me.  While in this place I texted my friend Tonya and said I wanted to eat at Wahlburgers the next day.  I asked her what she was doing, and like a good friend she said, "Going to Wahlburgers with you!"  Yep, she's a great friend.  And explaining how I felt,  she even offered to pick me up and drive me there.  Sadly because it was such short notice we didn't have a…

The Drive-Thru Challenge!

The Drive-Thru Challenge!
Today started out pretty rough.  I knew if I didn't get out of the house and do something fun I'd have a difficult rest of the day too.  I just had to get out of my head for a bit.  My 3 youngest kids are still home on summer break, so I figured, why not?  This could be so much fun!  For anyone who hasn't heard about the Drive-Thru Challenge here's how it works.  You pull up behind someone in a drive-thru line at a restaurant.  When it's your turn to order, you ask to order exactly what the person in front of you did.  You can also ask that they please not tell you what it is so you can be surprised.   Since there were a total of 4 of us, we stopped at 4 restaurants.  Growing boys are hungry and we had to make sure we had enough food.  Only one of my kiddos knew what we were going to do.  We all hopped in the car and while on our way to picking up our  lunches, I kept looking at the eldest and giggling.  He was going nuts trying to figure …

Trying The Whole Wahlburgers Menu! Part 1

Wahlburgers just recently came to a city near me.  Everyone is in hysterics.  Kind of like when a new Chick-fil-a comes to town.  Everyone is excited! They show up before the restaurant opens for the day thinking "they" will be the first ones in line only to find out 25 other families/groups have done the same.  So we stand there in line, trying to smile all the while thinking, "they better not crowd in front of me when this line starts moving."  Come on, you know you've all been there.  Thankfully my first visit wasn't the opening day; Lord knows this body can't handle that anymore.  There were only a few people in line outside when I arrived and there were plenty of tables for everyone.  Whew! Smiles still bright and cheery.

I met two wonderful friends there today.  Ok, wait a minute...I need to back this train up.  My friend Tonya put on facebook the other day that she was at Wahlburgers with her eldest son.  What!  I wasn't the first one she w…
