Having stepsons is a blessing to me... I love that Broxton has older brothers and when they are in town, we try to make the most out of our time together.  While sometimes we don't go anywhere or do anything, it is the fact of spending time together that is important to us.    I love to take pictures, but I really don't want a bunch of random snapshots hanging up in frames...  (Especially because when you have a house full of boys, they mostly tend to lay around in just shorts all day and as much as I love them, I don't want their shirtless photos plastered on my walls.)
This past Spring Break, we were lucky enough to get to go to Zoo Atlanta for the day.  The boys were running around having a great time and we w…

Looking for Poems for kids?  Look into the book, A Bee Named Bea and Other Poems.   This is a super cute book and the poems are sure to make the little ones smile!   At first, I was not so sure about this book--- since I am not a really HUGE Poem person- I used to be, but not really sure what happened.   So, when this book arrived, I started off with a negative attitude.   Then, I kept turning the pages... 
A Bee Named Bea and Other Poems is just too cute. The first poem we start with is An Alligator named Augie.  This is about an alligator that becomes friends with a frog named Froggy.   The next is A Bee named Bea.  At this point, I was wondering if we would have a A Chick named Chickie, but they threw me in for a loop!  It was a…

Between Mothers Day and Graduation Day - we have plenty of reasons to celebrate here!  I was recently sent an absolutely stunning arrangement from Edible Arrangements for review and I can totally see now why people go on and on about these!   The guy arrived and I was so surprised with how much fruit is on there - and just how beautiful it was !  Of course, Broxton saw the arrangement and immediately wanted to know if he could try some of it.
Who was I to say no?  I was also ready to dig in - so we opened the bag and started enjoying!!!  The Mothers Day fruit bouquet that I was sent was full of so many delicious fruits:  Strawberries (some even covered in chocolate!) Honey Dew, Cantaloupe, Pineapples and Grapes.
Broxton wanted t…

If I tell you a secret, do you promise not to tell? A few weeks ago, one of those Facebook Ads sort of grabbed my attention.  To be honest, I never really pay attention to them and just scroll on by, but I wanted to see what it was about.  I have a love of Instagram images and thought this was pretty cool... I ventured over to the Sticky9 site and was impressed.  You see, Sticky9 used to be called "stickygram" but due to the "iconic 9 grid"  they changed their name - STICKY9 was born! Long story short - you upload your Instagram images to their website and boom-  its done.
Now, you wait just a bit and when you check your mail and open up your Sticky9, prepare to fall in love!

Sticky9 can be a few things...

Living in Atlanta has its benefits and one would be that we are able to go and see more things because of being in a bigger city... We went to see the NUCLEAR COWBOYZ at Phillips Arena in 2013.   It was awesome and full of energy.  I remembered my friend and I both enjoying the show last year, but being a bit bored / lost about the whole ladies dancing around... So I was a bit eager to see if it would grab our attention this time, since we "knew what to expect."
Let me just say - Nuclear Cowboyz DOES NOT DISAPPOINT!  
 This year, Nuclear Cowboyz put their show on at Gwinnett Arena.   We got there and of course we had to visit the concessions... Having to get a Coke put us missing the introduction -but we sure could …

Reading is so much fun for me... and actually it is a great time for Broxton and I to enjoy time together.  He grabs the books he wants me to read and I get to enjoy that time snuggled up reading and discussing things that are exciting to him.  
A couple books that recently arrived were great additions to our library, thanks to Disney Books!!

Up first was a classic for me.  Well, I am not sure if it was from MY childhood or MY BROTHERS- but I for sure remember Huey, Dewey and Louie ...  Donald Ducks nephews!   I did not know they were still around, so I was excited to read this one to Broxton.  It was Huey, Dewey and Louie's Rainy Day and it is part of the "World Of Reading"  - Level 2.
Broxton was not familiar w…

Is gift buying hard for you at times?  I know around here it is really hard for me to figure out gifts for Marc, my parents and my brother...    With Marc, there is really NOTHING he really wants and if it is something he "needs" he normally just buys it as the need arises.
So, when I heard of the SOL REPUBLIC line, I was excited to know that I would be getting a pair for review and I knew that I would be gifting Marc his Fathers Day early!   
The package arrived and I was so excited to have Marc try them out.  To be honest, packaging is very important to me and says a lot about the product - crappy packaging makes me think it will be on the lower end of quality... When the Sol Republic Relays arrived, I knew we wer…

TeenyMates Now Has Baseball Figures!!!

You know how much we love the TeenyMates toys.  Broxton has them and loves playing with them... and I love that they are teeny and so cute.   They now have TeenyMates Baseball figures (that come with the random puzzle pieces - collect them all to make the puzzle!)   I don't know it it is because he just loves the TeenyMates, or if it is because he is playing baseball this year... It might even be because he got to go to his first Baseball game, no matter what the reason was... When he saw that the Easter Bunny left him a couple eggs with Teeny Mates in them, he IMMEDIATELY had to get them out and start playing with them.. They even beat out the other toys in the basket!!!!  


All I know is that we were super lucky with the …

We have not watched many (if any) shows on the Cartoon Network and I really don't know why. So, when we opened up the mail and were greeted with Regular Show: Mordecai and Margaret Pack on DVD, I was not really sure what to think.  
Of course, I looked to see what I could find out about the show and learned that "Regular Show is the breakout comedy series that features Mordecai and Rigsby, two groundskeepers at a park whose attempts to escape their everyday boredom take them to fantastical extremes.  Their job is so deadly dull that the two friends will do anything they can to avoid it. This doesn't go over well with their boss Benson (an anthropomorphic gumball machine)  - but their efforts often result in insan…
