Kids Book Review

I was sent “Professor Barrister’s Dinosaur Mysteries #2: The Case of the Armored Allosaurus” by Stephan Penner to review. This is the second book in a children’s series, where again Professor Barrister enlists the aid of Nate and Emily to solve a mystery related to dinosaurs. (First of series was “The Case of the Truncated Troodon”.) Does Allosaurus really have armor or not? This is the mystery, and the main characters get to travel back in time! How fun is that? I read this to Kamikaze and Little Man, 6 and 3, and they enjoyed it. Little man didn’t make it through the whole thing, but that’s OK. He left and started smashing his dinosaurs together 🙂 So [Read more…]

19th Amendment

90 Years ago today, the 19th Amendment was ratified, giving women the right to vote in the USA.
This is just a quick post, saying that I am grateful to those who came before me, who stood up for our rights, and how glad I am to be in the company of fine woman today.
Please take a moment today to honor the great [Read more…]

My Little Man’s Birthday!!!

My Little Man just turned 3- and we had to celebrate!  He is currently really into “Yo Gabba Gabba!”, so mama made him a Brobee cake.  It only took about 2 hours.  (Did I mention I am not an artist?  Haha, I tried!)  It was 2 rectangle cakes, 1 is whole, 1 is cut into pieces.  There are stripes, coconut with green food coloring and green sugar crystals for the stripes, as well as green colored vanilla icing.  The horns are brownies with strawberry frosting, and his smile and eyes are melted chocolate.
We did a party at our school, and one with family at home.  
My Little Man had so much fun.  I can’t believe he is three….where did the time go?  What happened to my little newborn?

My kids at Kings Island, Ohio

Here we are at Kings Island in Mason, Ohio. This pic is of my kids (and DH) on their very first roller coaster ride! “The Great Pumpkin Coaster” is super cute, and just enough thrills to keep them happy and excited without scaring the pants off them! It was in the specially designed area of Kings Island called “Planet Snoopy'”, for kids who may not be able to enjoy all the [Read more…]

Covergirl Last Blast Fusion Review

I was sent a tube of Covergirl’s Last Blast Fusion to review. It comes it 4 shades- very black, black, black-brown, and brown. I was sent black-brown. I think it was the right choice for me- I have very dark brown hair, but not quite black. My eyelashes are not very thick, but they are when I use lash [Read more…]

First Pic from our road trip

Just getting into PA, our road trip begins!
SMILE!

We spent 4 days traveling though PA and Ohio.  We spent time in Lancaster County, PA, and Cincinnati and Kings Island, Ohio primarily.  I will post more pics when we finish unpacking and getting settled- it has been a whirlwind few days!
Little Man and Kamikaze had so much fun, and were generally (and surprisingly!) well behaved.  Yay!
