Stellan Prayers Needed Please

I know that a lot of my readers are familiar with MckMama and her entire MckFamily. They could definitely use everyone praying for them.

Little Stellan is not doing well at all. Last update says they are waiting to be MedFlighted back to Boston. Stellan has been back in SVT for 3 days. His heart is not working right at all. His organs(kidneys) are failing. He is a very sick baby.

I am just asking if anyone has the time and would like to please stop over at MckMama's blog and leave her a message.. Well a message for the entire family.

If you tweet on twitter be sure to use any of the hashtags to show the MckFamily support. #stellan , #prayforstellan , #prayingforstellan.

Also everyone is going Orange for Stellan, wearing orange, Turning backgrounds Orange, Text is Orange. Anything to show their support for this family.

The last update on Twitter said that MckMama and her Prince Charming were visiting with her big kids (4 years old and under) and then they were going to both go to Boston with Stellan on medflight. Bostonians you may be needed to help the MckFamily again... you are a great community you proved it before..

Here is the link to MckMama's website and also her twitter name so you can follow her on Twitter.

Top Ten Reasons I am glad I am not going to BlogHer!

Cozi to Sponsor 15 Moms Not Going To BlogHer $100 Each

Top 10 Reasons I am Excited to Stay Home with My Family This Coming Weekend.The girls of the Non BlogHer Party believe that just because we aren't going to BlogHer it doesn't mean we shouldn't count, right? Cozi heard our cries and has offered to sponsor 15 bloggers - with $100 each! Did you hear me?

So my Top 10 Reasons I am glad to not be going to BlogHer are:

1. My 2 week Staycation begins on Friday night at 5 p.m.. 2 whole weeks doing what I want to do. Yeah!!!

2. I would miss out on valuable time with my mom. Her health is not great at all right now. Being home I know she is eating, and taking meds when she is supposed to be.

3. If I went to BlogHer my SIL lovemy2doggies would be at home pouting. This way she is happy.. and that is what matters.

4. I will get to spend wonderful time with my nieces and nephews.. well maybe not all of them. Some of them have busy lives..

5. I would miss out on going to Trader Joe's . I have never been (gasp) I know.

6. I am hoping this weekend to do some other things I have never done.. Starbucks, Half Priced Slushies at Sonic,

7. If I was at BlogHer this weekend I would miss out on the chance of going to the local movie theater to see Harry Potter with a friend.. ( I don't like the movies.. only the books.. but a friend asked)

8. If I was at BlogHer this weekend I would miss out on all of the great things happening at home. I am hoping to hit the State Fair, and maybe the local Crawford Co. Fair.

9.If I was at BlogHer, I would miss out on doing the laundry I have put off all week, on redoing the shelves in the pantry of the new house, on putting finishing touches on my bedroom, organizing the spare bedroom.

10. If I was at BlogHer this weekend.. I would miss this awesome opportunity from COZI... I am planning on updating my brand new Cozi account this weekend.. it looks great!

If you don't mind please leave a comment to help me win this Blog Scholarship.. Thanks!!!

I Didn't want to believe it was True!!!

That's right folks.. I took time out of my busy life to take "The Quiz" and its TRUE... I am Addicted to Blogging!!
So what does this mean I am now wondering.. Does this mean I have no life.. that I just sit at the computer all of the time? Does this mean that the friends I have made from blogging are not "real" friends?
Or does it just mean that maybe.... I am Addicted and thats OK...
I am a Addict... I don't need help, I love Blogging and I am not afraid to admit it.. ARE YOU!!!???? Take the Quiz find out and come back and let me know what it says!!! Good luck!

I will be back soon!!!

I wanted to thank everyone who has been stopping by, unfortunately I have been busy lately and blogging has been put on the back burner.
I am hoping that after Sunday maybe things will calm down enough that I will be able to blog more regularly.
I have all these great posts in my head I need to blog about.. Just getting them to the laptop is hard.
I know that i have missed entering lots of great giveaways lately. I have 2 great giveaways coming up soon. I have one almost finished and ready to post and the other I have started. Soon I promise soon.
As most know we moved, we moved from a really large huge house, to a much smaller house. I am loving the new house. It is getting easier and easier to take care of as we put things away.
I am having a HUGE garage sale tomorrow.. It is so huge that it outgrew the garage.. so now it is going to be in my front yard, huge front porch and 2 living rooms, and dining room of my old house.. I am telling you.. There is something there for everyone.
I sold a few things tonight.. Yeah!!!
I am so fortunate that tonight when setting up the sale I had terrific helpers. My sister M3 was there, My Sis in law Tammy, and then 2 of "My Boys" came to help.. My boy H brought his wife and 2 little boys.. The little guys were great hauling wagon loads of things from the garage to the house. I couldn't have done it without all of the help I have had the last couple of weeks. Amazing what people will do for free pizza.
I will try to take pics of the sale tomorrow.. you honestly won't believe it unless you see it.
Stop by.. Buy Lots.. trust me.. there is plenty for everyone!

Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters

I received the Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters from My Blog Spark.

I loved them. They come in 4 fantastic flavors Roasted Almonds, Roasted Cashew, Nut Lovers and Honey Roasted Peanut.

I enjoyed them all, the Nut Lovers was my favorite. These couldn't have come at a better time. Moving was a hassle and meals were sometimes forgotton. I would grab a handful of the Nature Valley Nut Clusters and be on my way. The resealable bag made this super easy.
Be sure to watch for them at your local grocery store. Also if you would like there is a $1.00 off of the Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters on the Nature Valley website.
