 While some people may enjoy going out for St. Patricks Day- others might want to have the festivities at home.  I know when I worked in the bar, people would use that as a great time to go out and have fun... Like adults need an excuse?  Hey, it is Monday guys, we made it through the start of a work week!   Seriously though...  If you want to have the festivities - or if you are busy scrambling to get kids fed, homework done, baths had and ready for bed... but you still want to have a great celebration...
Think about stopping by the store and making it a fun night in!!!
I am adding a dip recipe (who doesn't love a great dip?) and I am also throwing in a cajun wing recipe - had to do that for Marc!   These recipes were pr…

As we all know, technology is taking over the world.  I think I am going to be one of the last few holding on to my paperback book... but, I do like technology as well!  When we opened the mail and found a few  new books for Broxton, I was excited to see that they were not only hard copy books.... Each purchase included a Mobile App!!!   That was so great to me - covering both bases!!!!


Minnie's BowToons - Trouble Times Two is actually offered in a couple different formats.  You can purchase it as an ebook, as a sticker book (like the picture) or with the mobile app.  In the app, you get to design bows with Minnie!!!   This was a cute book to us, Broxton loved it too... Maybe because of Minnie's nieces coming in and …

A little known secret of mine?  I am addicted to sweets!  Actually, it isn't really a secret.. and I may or may not be addicted.  The jury is still out on that one... I will tell you this though... Edwards has been in our freezer as often as in the freezer of the grocery store.  True story.
After Broxton was born, I was lucky enough that my parents let us move in with them while Marc was deployed.  I wanted to lose the weight I had gained while pregnant... but since I am a lover of dessertS - I knew it was going to be hard.  My dad would grab the Edwards SINGLE SLICE servings for a nice treat from time to time...  They have always been great.. But lets get real - If you have people coming over or you want dessert fo…

Let me start by saying : I love books and I love movies. (Oh, and maybe I should mention I am a sap for anything sweet and emotional!)  Okay, now that we have that cleared up... I am so excited to see the movie, The Book Thief.  To be honest, I would love to read the book as well... but, that probably won't be happening  anytime soon.  So - I have to make time to see the movie (I keep putting it off in hopes of reading the book first!)   I did want to let you know it was available on DVD and Blu-Ray now - so you can check it out!!!!
Let me know what you think!!
Also - I have added discussion questions at the end of this post, I loved reading them when I was in my book club, so I am sure you will too!  Talk about thoughts …

Previously unpublished Margaret Wise Brown.  Okay, now that I have your attention...
Margaret Wise Brown is the author of Goodnight Moon and Runaway Bunny.  (More than that, but those are the two that we know!)   Well, come to find out...  After she passed, it was found out that she had a treasure trove of unpublished works, just waiting to be shared with the world ! Luckily for us, it was allowed to be published --  but what is better is that she had music to go with these treasures and that is what we are blessed with now!!! Goodnight Songs is a beautifully illustrated book with each of these songs on a two page spread.  There is also a CD included in a special flap on the front cover.
From Amy Gary - Editor of the Margaret…
