My Sweet C, Grandma and I were cruising though the furniture store one day when C saw it, her room’s inspiration…

Swanky BedMy, oh my, does she have serious taste.

What to do about a 13 year old who’s eyes dazzle at a $2,800 bed… besides the obvious, “Ummm, no”? Recommend finding a much less expensive tufted headboard and bedazzle it ourselves, of course!

Musical String Art

One evening, while cruising around the good ‘ol Pinterest, I spotted a sweet music heart that would be perfect for my Sweet C on her birthday. But, she only wears the necklace I gave her on our wedding day, so this would not be a wise purchase on my part… so what to do? A few days later, I ran across this post on Honey+Fitz and thought, A-HA! Indeed, this is what I will do for my Sweet C!

Needed Supplies:

12″ round cork mat  [in the garden department]

String, I used a variegated DMC floss in blues

Wire Nails [Size 1/2 x 19]

Template/Pattern + Tape

Primer + Paint

Hammer + Needle Nose Pliers

String Art Supplies

Today, I want to tell you/remind you about some great opportunities to save on [almost] all purchases made online through an example of my shopping trip today.

My little D had demodex when we adopted her from Lucky Dog Rescue, she came with meds and a complete care regimen to clear the pesky little mites in no time. However, once they have it, minimal amounts remain living in their little bodies and will make themselves present with many health and environmental factors. Lately, D has been dealing with severe anxiety and back tracking on her positive abilities… I seriously think she has RAD.

Scared Dog

Anyways, I digress.

My amazing B was out tending to the desk he proposed to build for our office yesterday, so I decided to plant some flowers…

Pinwheel Flowers

Aren’t they pretty? It is really hard to find a nice blue flower, you know?

I can’t kill them and if D stomps on them or a volleyball flies at them, they just bounce right back up. Perfect!

I just wonder how long it will take to get a letter from our lovely HOA.?

PS. I haven’t resorted to ALL plastic flowers yet, I have managed to keep my plumeria, three tomato plants, ginger and dwarf myrtle alive and kicking, even through last year’s brutal summer. Cheers to this year!

PPS. I saw on Pinterest a rooting of celery, I totally tried it and mine is growing! Want to see?

Update: Zaycon has cancelled this event completely due to lack of stock. Stay tuned for the new dates!

Zaycon Bulk Meat Events

Time for another round in our area by Zaycon Foods, have you tried them out yet? If not, you should definitely call your friends to see if they want to go in with you, you will not be sorry!

I hit them up for 30 pounds of the hickory smoked bacon when they were here in January and let me tell you, I was shocked, surprised and SUPER happy with my decision to try out another one of their fantastic meat selections. I shared the cost of the bacon with my Mom and two other people from my couponing board on Facebook, so the price tag wasn’t too killer with people to split the pot… I think having 30# of bacon is great, but is a bit much for a family of 2.5. The bacon is natural and comes from local southern and midwest states; they are hickory smoked, medium sliced and sealed into four packages of 7.5 pounds each. Don’t be concerned when the strong men and women load your car with two boxes of bacon, they are 15 pounds each, perfect for taking to your friends house for easy sharing… or not ;)

I have never purchased the fish or shrimp, so I cannot give a shout out to any of these products. However, I was watching Giada at Home the other day and watched her make this recipe and made me seriously consider putting in an order!

The Zaycon team is so efficient, you don’t even have to get out of you car or truck to pick up your purchases, they walk up with your order, put it where you ask and off you go to seal seal seal.

Saturday, June 9 [Orders must be placed by 6/3/12]

  • Frozen Alaskan True Cod Fillets $5.39/lb [20# units]
  • White Shrimp $6.39/lb [20# units] Cook, Peeled & Deveined. (31/40 count per pound)
  • Bacon $2.99/lb [30# units] Hickory Smoked, Medium Sliced

Check out Zaycon Foods here. I bet there is an event close to you, they are expanding their reach as the word gets out about their products.

Angels Are God’s Helpers

Have you ever had a wonderful thought while putting your baby’s down only to misplace it in the chaos of life?

How about a thought so profound you replayed it over and over in your head and even on paper, wondering what could possibly come of it one day?

That is what happened with my friend, Shelly Morrow Whitenburg. One sunny day in the late 90′s as she was putting her young son down for a nap a rhyme popped in to her head that she could not deny as divine. She said it stuck with her, in her mind and through her words, for many years before she finally wrote it down. Within the last year she reached out to a publisher, on a whim, to see where the Lord was taking this rhyme He gave her many years before. Wouldn’t you know it, she received a call back from Tate Publishing the very next day!

Angels Are God’s Helpers is a sweet rhyme about asking for help from the Angels who are always around us to help, comfort, and protect us.

Angel's Are God's Helpers

“Have you ever been sad or mad? Did you know that Angels Are God’s Helpers and are sent to comfort and protect you when you’re upset? What else can angels do? Find out in Angels Are God’s Helpers—a sweet rhyme about the wonderful support we have in angels. Know that they are here to help you and all you have to do is ask.” 

One lucky reader will get their very own signed copy of Angels Are God’s Helpers!

To enter, leave your first name and last initial and the state you are from in the comment section of this post. Entries must be received by Saturday, May 12th.
