Since I don’t think there’s an “app” for this. I thought I’d share mine with you. Just take your laptop, Ipad, or smartphone over to your lovey-dovey and hold it over their head with this picture displayed.
You know what to do from here!

Anything odd sticking out in this picture?
Uh, why in the world are my boys sitting ON the dining room table, you ask? Great question, and normally I don’t allow this. However, when I walked into the room, their “Elf on the Shelf shenanigan” cracked me up. They were literally playing a game of Elf on the Shelf (arms together and everything!). So, of course, instead of yelling out, “Get off the table,” I said, “Don’t move. I’ve got to get the camera!”
What was your children’s latest shenanigan?Pin It

That’s me… (just kidding)!
One year ago, today, with a Coke in my hand, I sat before my computer and decided to “start a blog” because the house was sparkling and the laundry had all been done, and I had nothing else to do.
Wait a minute, what I meant to say was that I was daydreaming about a sparkling house and a laundry room that hadn’t “thrown up” into the hallway.
Anywho, even with all of the stuff a mom has to do on a daily basis, I still decided to throw up one more ball into the air and see if I could manage to let one of the other ones not fall right on my head. Some days they all stay up there, and some days they don’t (i.e. I had to dry off on a beach towel the other day. Please tell me you know what that means…lol).
So, for the last 365 days, it has been my pleasure play a small part in your world. I started writing because I just wanted to share my thoughts, my laughter, and my creations with the world. I didn’t know if anyone would ever read them, but I put them out there anyways. As it turns out, some of you do read them, and I feel extremely privileged because of that!
I wish I could give you each a great big hug right now for helping to make this year so special!
Thank you so much for taking your Coke breaks here with me!

I love the new Coke cans; they’re raising awareness about the Arctic polar bears and their homes, and that is a great thing in my book, but it seems like everyone is up in arms about them.
Well, when we recently had people over, they were like, “Why are you drinking Diet Coke?” Of course, I wasn’t. It was just the white can that threw them off. Now, I’ve heard people are begging Coke to switch back to the traditional red can because they think the Coke tastes different when it comes out of a white can. Come on, now. The contents inside didn’t turn into a diet soda just because of the can. Can’t we just have fun with this new look through the winter and think about how we can do our part to not only protect the Artic polar bears but other animals who need us to be their voices, as well? Now that’s something I can drink to!
There’s one more moral to this story:
You can’t judge a book by it’s cover!
As always, grab a Coke, and let me know what you think :)Pin It

Do you see a certain something in this kitchen that alerts one’s children that Christmas is near and Santa will be getting the scoop on the good boys and girls?
No, it’s not the lightsaber or Nerf gun on the kitchen. It looks like we battle before breakfast!
Take a closer look.
Aha! It’s our little elf, Walker! He’s here, and he gives the scoops to Santa every night.
Now, if you don’t know what the heck I’m talking about, you’ve got to get yourselves an Elf on the Shelf. He (or she, if you’ve got girls) is the best little holiday tradition our family has. That little trickster keeps my kids in line all month long!
(Hmmm…. maybe he should stick around all year… hehehe!)
Where’s your elf hiding today?Pin It
