Aloha Friday #69

Hey everyone! I can not believe I missed last weeks AF! Well, I am back! So, here we go! What is AF? Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday. In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response. My question: What is the weather looking like your way? My answer: We are finally clear of the snow and ice... BUT - Snow is heading our way again? What is up with that? Have a great weekend!

Help! My Baby Came Without Instructions - Book Review

You know I have talked before about all the pressure that I felt was on me while Marc was deployed... A first time mom... Dealing with her husband being deployed to a war zone... (This was actually my first time dealing with him being deployed as well) I read all sorts of books, went to the pediatrician more than I probably needed too...

It is just you and your newborn... You just might need a little piece of advice... Turn to this bo

Rite Aid Photo - Who Knew?!

I love pictures! I also now love photo gifts! (I mean, how else can I show Broxton off ALL - THE - TIME?!) I hate to say it, but I thought that photo gifts meant that you had to order from an online company and have them ship it to you. Little did I know that you could order so many great photo gifts from Rite Aid Photo ! Yes! Rite Aid, your neighborhood pharmacy also has a great selection of photo gifts! I wanted to see how great their works were, so when I was offered a chance to review and share with you, I chose two totally different items! The first I want to tell you about their crystal gifts. I chose the crystal keychain for review. The process was very easy. You just create a Rite Aid Photo account. Then, you upload your picture. Next, select the product you want to order and then place the order. You get a confirmation that the order was placed... Then, Rite Aid emails you to let you know it was shipped. When we went to get it, I could not wait to open it. They package
