Drink More Water with SodaStream

With Christmas just over a week away and New Year’s immediately following, it may be time for you to start thinking about those New Year’s Resolutions.  The last few years I’ve focused on small, simple goals to improve my life, rather than a large-scale grandiose scheme that probably won’t work out for me!  And I think if everyone focused one or two little things, we’d all have more success.  Today we are talking health goals.  I have some “small, simple tips” for tracking and improving your health in the new year!

Friday Favorites – Week 254 – Featuring Valentine Crafts + Still Taking Apps for Linky Co-hosts and Contributors

friday favorites

Hey everyone!  Welcome to another fun week of Friday Favorites!  Unbelievably Valentine’s Day is just over a week away, so today I’m featuring a few craft ideas for the occasion.  Hope you like them!

Also, I’m still taking applications for linky party co-hosts and blog contributors.  If you’ve already applied, thank you! I’ll be in touch shortly!  If not, please do apply.  You can Apply Here.  And just in case you are unsure about applying, let me just give you a quick run down on the requirements.  First off, you don’t have to have a certain number of followers or subscribers to apply, and even if your blog has only been around for a short time, that’s okay too!

A few people asked about the work required to be a party co-host.  So here’s a quick rundown: As linky party co-host, you would be required to host a shared linky party on your site.  Apart from including the linky code I send you each week, you would need to include the party banner and co-host information supplied to you.  And then each week you would just go through the posts, just like I do, and pick a few to feature on your site (photos and links included) and also pin your selections to my Friday Favorites pinterest board.  Finally you would just need to promote your party post on your social media sites.  And that’s it!  It doesn’t really require a lot of your time each week; however, I am looking for people who will be committed to posting.

Daisy BB Gun

Does your child spend a lot of time staring at computer screens, mobile devices, and electronic games?  Ours too!  Each day after school, Noah can hardly wait to get home to his computer (as he’s mobile gaming in the back seat).  But we also encourage him to do outdoor activities.  For example, he likes to go camping, fishing, and hunting.  And while we can’t exactly do these activities every day, going out to do some target shooting is quite do-able.  For this reason, we got Noah an early Christmas present: the Daisy 880 BB Gun. Noah is 14, so this is a very good gun for his age group.  If you want your child to spend more time outdoors too, Daisy has a lot of great Christmas gifts for boys and girls. [Read more…]

Friday Favorites – Week 199 – New Year’s Edition

friday favorites

Happy New Year! Welcome to Friday Favorites!  I know we’re a little past New Year’s, but it just seemed appropriate to have New Year’s features for this week, so I hope you enjoy!

Also, if you host a linky party yourself, please feel free to link your blog up to my new Linky Parties List.  Just be sure to list your site under the proper link list. For example, my Friday Favorites party is published on Thursday nights but would go under the list of Friday parties.

I’ve also started a new Giveaways and Freebies Linky where you can link up your giveaways, coupon posts, printables, patterns, and other free offers.
