  • Big Brother
    on Jun 28, 2016 in Nana's Blog big brother reality tv
    One of the things I like to do is watch reality television. I don’t know why it’s so addicting for me but it is. Every summer CBS comes out with big brother. It’s a show about a social experiment taking strangers and putting them in...
  • Essential OilsI haven’t joined the essential oil craze so far because I am smell sensitive. This past weekend I hurt my back and went to see my chiropractor. We talked about allergies and Claritin, I can’t use that regularly because it gives me a headache. He...
  • Happy BirthdayThis time of year we have a few birthdays in a row. My niece and best friend have one a few days before then 16th, 17th, and 18th we party like a Congo line. Not really. This year we aren’t even in the same town. Usually we get together for the big...
  • Fun at the beach
    on Jun 12, 2016 in Nana's Blog
    This weekend we filled a Saturday with almost every errand you could imagine. We started our morning grabbing breakfast and the boys, Anthony and Carter. Anthony was invited to a birthday party first thing so the rush was on. Anthony makes molasses l...
  • Storytime
    on Jun 9, 2016 in Nana's Blog storytime
    Today Carter and I went to story time at the local library. We do this most every week. It allows for him to socialize with his friends and lets me get a moment to myself. Today it was hosted by Miss Sallie, she does a wonderful job with the kids. Th...
  • Social Media
    on Jun 7, 2016 in Nana's Blog
    I have been blogging for a few years now. It seems I should know anything and everything about blogging but I don’t. I’m not sure I even utilize social media the right way. I really got into trying monetization but that is definitely some...
  • Cable or Satelite
    on Apr 4, 2016 in Nana's Blog
    Our television bill went up the the other day. I was shocked at the prices charged for tv! We had cable and the bill got so insane we switched to satellite. Now they are doing the same thing. I called the cable company and got a sweet package deal. T...

  • Fun Filled FireworksAs a kid I loved summertime – picnics, fireworks, parades and more! As a mother I tended to dread the forth of July. I had a son that didn’t like fireworks and I was determined to change that. My hubby and I took the boys to the lake to watch...
  • Fun at the Beach
    on Jun 25, 2014 in Nana's Blog
    The kids really enjoy time at the beach, and to be honest I do too. The sand between the toes aside, most of it is fun. We keep buckets in our car and whenever the mood strikes we head to the beach. We go there more than the park. Each time has a dif...
  • Festivals & Fun
    on Jun 21, 2014 in Nana's Blog
    I just love summertime! It’s the season of festivals once again. On the weekends we head down to the port for music, ice cream and fun. I keep buckets and towels in my car, you just never know when you may want to stop and build a sandcastle. I thi...

    Cinco de Mayo—or the fifth of May—commemorates the Mexican army’s 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War (1861-1867). A relatively minor holiday in Mexico, in the United States Cinco de Mayo has evolved i...
  • Congratulations Christopher!
    on May 2, 2014 in Nana's Blog
    I just cant get over how fast my grandchildren are growing. I think back and it still seems like my sons couldn’t possibly be the ages they are now. I don’t feel that much different. Sure its morning and I always feel invincible in the AM. I thin...
  • Children at Play – Slow Down!
    on Apr 29, 2014 in Nana's Blog
    I see these caution signs all over the place. I think they are a great idea to alert others that children are playing. What really annoys me is when adults don’t heed the warning. My son lives on a U shaped street north of town with only 10 houses.
  • Happy Easter

    Happy Easter everyone!   Last night Kristen had posted this image of an egg her daughter colored.. here is Karkey’s Watermelon Egg. I’m off to the grand-kids house shortly to get as tired as old Peter Cottontail is today. I wouldn...
  • Springtime Fun!
    on Apr 17, 2014 in Nana's Blog
    I love taking the grandkids to the park. It encourages exercise, movement and just plain tires them (and me) out! Each child is different about how they react to the swings, slides and other toys. Anthony was nervous about the slide for quite sometim...
  • CalcumentoMy Dad and I went out for dinner years ago, instead of a salad they brought us Calcumento with our meal. I thought this is a fancy amazing salad! It was really cucumbers, tomatoes and Italian dressing. I make this all the time now, but Ill always rem...
