Sorry For Being So Quiet Lately…


bravest_hero_i_knew_amyloidosis_rectangle_magnetThe holidays were a little crazy and my father’s health had taken a turn for the worse. He passed away January 12 due to complications of Pneumonia and Amyloidosis and my heart aches every day.

Pocket Hose Ultra Review

Since we recently bought our first house, we find ourselves having to run to the store to buy things we previously didn’t need.   Rakes, Snow Shovels, and a Snowblower, were all things we didn’t need living in a townhouse.

It was already pretty cold out when we moved into this house, the fact that we didn’t own a garden house didn’t cross my mind until we got home from the last Buffalo Bills game of the season. Our boots were so muddy!  We had gotten mud all over the trucks rubber floor mats and without tracking the mud into the house, we had no way to clean anything.  I knew I had a pair of sneakers by the front door, so I changed shoes on the front steps and went in and got Tony a pair of sneakers.  We left our boots in the garage and the muddy mats in the truck.

This is a Sponsored Post

 This New Years Eve,  get the party started with J.Higgs® Bacon & Cheddar Potato Chips – they are amazing as they sound and are only sold at Save-A-Lot!

Bacon Cheddar ChipsI am a Save-A-Lot Insider so that means sometimes I get to try new products for free. This time they sent me the J.Higgs® Bacon & Cheddar Potato Chips to taste test and they did not disappoint!  I wanted to bring them to my mother-in-laws for Christmas as a pre-dinner snack but I was so sick, I completely forgot!

I have opened them and tasted them and they taste as good as they sound! They taste like loaded baked potato skins – one of my favorite appetizers! They are very crispy and not as greasy as some brands of chips.  I plan on putting the chips out for New Years Eve – if there is any left!  I find myself going into the pantry to take a handful a few times during the day!
