It's Been a Busy Fall, Surgery, Birthdays, Travel, and a PhD...

Dec 10, 2018
Whew!  It's almost over, but I can't really breathe yet.  Not until after Christmas.  Why?  All three of my kids have birthdays between Halloween (actually on Halloween), until three days after Christmas.  I have two down, one to go, plus Christmas.  Boy this has been a busy season!  This post may contain affiliate links, and here is a link to my updated privacy.

Free Photo Apps to Make Your Pictures Pop!

Dec 3, 2018
It’s almost the holiday time, the perfect time of year to take amazing candid pictures of your kids, and I am sharing my two go-to apps to make your pictures pop. The only problem with the holiday photos is, indoor lighting. Everything is so dark and just isn’t that cute. Well, I have discovered a couple of free or inexpensive apps that can make those phone pictures.

Toy Story 4, A Sneak Peek, and Plot Details!

Nov 13, 2018
You guys, I am so SO excited!  Woody, Buzz, and the rest of the toys are back for an all-new adventure in “Toy Story 4,” welcoming new friends to Bonnie’s room, including a reluctant new toy called Forky. “Like most people, I assumed that ‘Toy Story 3’ was the end of the story,” said director Josh Cooley. “And it was the end of Woody’s story with Andy. But just like in life, every ending is a new beginning. Woody now being in a new room, with new toys, and a new kid, was something we have never seen before. The questions of what that would be like became the beginning of an entertaining story worth exploring.”  Click here for my updated privacy information.

Surgery, and recovery. Part II of my mastectomy story.

Nov 8, 2018
If you read my last post, you know that a month ago I had a prophylactic double mastectomy.  For those of you who don't know what that is, don't worry, I don't have cancer.  I just have/had a high risk for it.  You can read more about it here.  That post got crazy long, so I wanted to do another about the actual surgery, and recovery.  Here is a link to my updated privacy information, and this post contains affiliate links.

Nutcracker and the Four Realms Review

Nov 1, 2018
We were lucky enough to be invited to an early screening of The Nutcracker and the Four Realms this week, and I was blown away.  Originally, I wasn't as excited about this movie because I am not really a nutcracker lover, and because I am still recovering.  Everything is just a little bit harder these days.  Boy was I wrong, this movie was magical from start to finish, with something for everyone! What can I say about the Nutcracker and the Four Realms except...go see it!  Here is a link to my updated privacy notice.

I have been MIA for awhile, and I have a good reason...I had a double mastectomy.  Don't worry, I don't have cancer!  I did this as a preventative, and I have a few good reasons why.  It wasn't an easy decision. Here is a link to my updated privacy policy, and this post contains affiliate links.
