Have you ever felt like you're missing out on everything. That's what my summer has been like.

Eight Pounds of Butter

That is what I equate it to. The weight I've lost, I mean. Eight pounds of butter = 8lbs of fat. On March 3rd I weighed myself.  It was the day after my birthday party, and I had just eaten a piece of this: It was beyond delicious...and was my birthday cake baked for my by my sister in law.  Seriously, I don't think I've ever had cake so delicious.  I should never ever have stepped on the scale. But I did. And it read … [Read more...]

Easter Made Easy at Walmart with Flipp!

In my list of top 10 favorite holidays, Easter comes in a quick second, right behind good ole Christmas.  We get to enjoy a bit of holiday magic known to us as Mr. Hoppity himself, the Easter Bunny as he leaves small spring inspired gifts (and chocolate) for our kids. Just like Santa, the Easter Bunny needs a bit of help when he's building those shopping lists.  Even a little help picking up things here and there.  I mean...there is still a lot … [Read more...]

Cleaning Toilets with Lysol® Click gel™ Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaner

It was a job I didn’t do well.  Too young to really be leaving home, but naive enough to think I was ready.  With a signed contract in hand, at just seventeen, I left the safety and security of Nova Scotia and headed off to Alberta.  My job?  Cleaning toilets.   And oh my goodness do I ever wish I was kidding. It was the last thing I should have signed up for.  Sure, it was honest work, but cleaning toilets in a tourist town in the middle of … [Read more...]

Share the Love with Kinder Eggs

I have two boys... two boys who are almost 5 years apart in age. Two boys who spend their every waking hour doing everything they can to pick and pester at each other.  And they don't do it quietly... LOUD is the normal, descriptive work for my house when my boys are home.  There are few times when I can enjoy quiet when they are home.  But sometimes you have to pull out all the stops when it comes to a Saturday afternoon with this boys... and … [Read more...]

The First Day of The Rest of my Life

Today is the first day of the rest of my life. I quit my job. For eight years I have blogged here on A Busy Mommy, but I have also worked part time at a greasy fast food chain. That restaurant caused a lot of good things to happen in my life. It is where I met my husband. It is where my oldest son took his first step. It was my second home for 14 years.... FOURTEEN YEARS And I am forever grateful for the road that getting … [Read more...]

Say Happy Valentines Day with a Selfie & Posterjack

I love having pictures of my family.  On my phone, on the mantle, on the wall.  Pictures of the people I love a surround me.  When I feel a tug at my heart strings I just have to glance around to know just how loved I am, and how much I love. Valentines Day is coming up on us fast, and sure, flowers and chocolate are an easy way to say I love you...there isn't a lot of thought that goes into it.  Instead, (or maybe as well...) why not check … [Read more...]
