Sunkist S’alternative – Sunkist® Lemon Seafood Paella Recipe

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sunkist S’alternative for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. I grew up in  a house where we did not use salt.

Have you heard about the Sunkist S’alternative? The S’alternative is when {Read More}

Whirlpool Laundry Troubleshooting #WhirlpoolMoms

Whirlpool Washer and Dryer

Our new washer and dryer have been here for a few months now. The first month was kind of a trial period as we played and learned our way around these new machines. I was really used to the old school where they have dark and light. This new-fangled contraption of having all of these settings and being able to customize everything took some getting used to for me. In fact, I still struggle a little although I do like {Read More}

Duran Duran Coming to a City Near You #DuranSocial

Duran Duran 1

Ever since the 80’s (yes I am dating myself now) , I have been a fan of Duran Duran. I have always loved them.

Last night I got the chance to see Duran Duran once again and it has probably been at least 15 years since I have seen them live. {Read More}

Often times I need to use a form builder to create exactly what I {Read More}

Wordless Wednesday – Ode to 3 Musketeers with LINKY

Ode to 3 Musketeers

I cannot even make up stuff like this. My six year old daughter was tasked with writing an essay about something important to her. So I am pretty sure she did what any six year old would do, she chose to write about 3 Musketeers because…well…uh…they are important to her. What she wrote: The important thing about 3 Muskereers is that it is sweet deicious chocolate. Chocolate is soo yummy. That it is good and smooth. Win you dit the {Read More}
