I’ve Got a Bone to Pick With Mother Nature

One of my 2018 goals is to get back on track with blogging. So far, my year hasn't gotten off to a great start. Last week I sat down with my handy dandy notebook because I'm old school like that and have to write everything on paper first, and I planned out a month's worth of content I want to share. You know, doing things right and all that. Y'all, there's always something getting in the way of my plans. Yes, I did just pull out my Southern roots, but I'm ready to get real with Mother Nature.

Sending Condolences to Connie

I didn't imagine my first post of the New Year would start off as a sad one, but it's with a heavy heart I report we lost a member of our Brainfoggles family recently.

So, this year I decided we're keeping Christmas Eve simple. We're going to have a Christmas Eve game night, just the 4 of us.

Lovely Candy Company Gluten Free and Peanut Free Stocking Stuffers

A trip to any local store, and you will see they all carry one particular type of product during the holiday season...sweets! Whether it be chocolate, candy, or confections, we are surrounded by sweets not just during the holidays, but year round. Unfortunately, many of those yummy treats are also full artificial things that aren't very healthy. Some can be downright harmful to someone with a peanut allergy or other health problems. The Lovely Candy Company just launched two new product lines that make great tasting stocking stuffers, Honey Gummies, and Dark Chocolate Honey … [Read more...]

Breathing Room: 6 Amazing Sights That Will Take Your Breath Away on an Arkansas Vacation
