Our Carved Pumpkins!

The other day the kids & I went pumpkin picking. We carved our pumpkins just the other night. We got the templates free online from The Pumpkin Lady. I had bought one of those pattern books that came with the tools last year. We made some cool pumpkins from it. I didn't feel like spending the $5 on the book again especially since I had washed and saved the pumpkin tools. So, I searched online … [Read more...]

Spice up your business!

So I was chatting with hubby and showing my new business cards that Connie made me, she has an Etsy Store also. And he said well that doesn't stand out to me for a paper person. And at first I was upset b/c I thought he was saying he didn't like the card, but then he went on to explain that they should be something I make since I am a paper person. So, at first I matted it and he said okay. And … [Read more...]

No way Jose! That hurts!

So, yesterday was the start of my Humira injections. I actually have been looking forward to this. I had done the rounds with the Enbrel injections and thought they would be similar in style. A needle is a needle right? WRONG! The Enbrel were in regular syringes and you stuck the needle, pushed in the meds, and you were done. Ha! Not Humira! See those things in the pic that look like they are … [Read more...]

Out of this WORLD! Gavin’s Rocket Ship Bedroom!

I was sick of tripping all over the infant toys my son hasn't played with in the … [Read more...]

So, here's what I paid when I went to the pump this morning. I know that gas prices are amazingly and drastically ranging around the country right now. Luckily here in Western MA things haven't gotten too crazy since Hurricane Ike. Especially since I drive a gas guzzling Jeep Liberty that only gets 16 mpg, but it's still better than hubby's F150 King Ranch that only gets 13 mpg!!! Of course you … [Read more...]
