Many of my friends are shipping their college age kids off this week. We still have a couple of years before that happens, but that doesn’t stop me from gathering a few items for her beforehand. And — Brylane Home has the perfect dorm room solutions that we can all get excited about.

Building rather than buying a house can offer a number of benefits to the person brave enough to do it. For instance, you can claim money back from VAT, you can incorporate an ecological design into the building and, ultimately, you will have a house build to your own specification. However, building your own home certainly isn’t a quick and easy housing solution and gives you a lot to think about before jumping in.

I still cannot believe that she is a junior this year. My mind is blown with how fast she is growing up and will soon leave the comfort of our home. Since we homeschool, I always wonder if I taught her enough, if she retained enough — if she is ready for all that college will throw at her. She has such a bright future ahead of her and I really want her to be prepared more than anything.

Once upon a time, the cure for toothache was to pray for the patient, while placing a toad on the head was thought to cure sore throats!

Thankfully, medicine today has a few more effective treatments than these questionable practices. We’re now even developing alternatives to invasive surgery, as covered in this article.

Pets have long been a part of the lives of humans. Cat lovers are humans merely present to feed and give the occasional scratch under the chin of their cat (well that’s how the cats think of it anyway!) Dogs have long been considered as man’s best friend.

I received a bottle of Vitamin Bubbles GLOW vitamins for the purpose of this review. This post was made possible by Mom Spark Media. Thoughts are my own.

I have the skin of a 16 year old. My face breaks out real bad, it feels dry and tight all the time. I have tried so many different moisturizers, cleaners, and vitamin regimens it’s crazy. When I first heard about Vitamin Glow Bubbles I was totally intrigued — and you know what? They work SO great.

When my son entered preschool, I had no idea the issues and struggles we would have with this ability to sit still through those long hours of study time. Many times, the teacher would call me and my husband in for a consultation about his behavior — most of which was fidgeting or wiggling — or something of that nature. I sure wish I would have had Bouncy Bands back then — because I am sure this would have definitely helped out with all the fidgeting issues we had.

On Saturday, my husband and I snuck off for a much needed date night to Paducah. I was excited to learn that they were doing a free screening of The Amazing Spiderman 2 hosted by Kellogg’s and providing snacks during the movie, so we headed out to dinner and then to check out the movie being shown.
