Uncontainable Love – My Dog’s Escapades

As I sit here on a Saturday morning at 6am and wonder why my children decided that 5 was a good time to wake up I am reminded just how lucky I am to have my dog Koda by my side. You see it was just about 4 years ago that I nearly lost my little friend. I never liked to leave my dogs outside while I was gone, because well their dogs and they need their humans. I decided one day that it would be ok, I would only be gone a few minutes after all. So I left all three of my dogs out in the yard and ran up to the store to grab some milk. When I got home and went to bring them in my heart sunk, my little dog was missing! It had only been 15 minutes and my two other dogs were still in the yard I figured he couldn't have gone far right! So I put all three kids back in the car and drove, and drove, and drove. For 4 months I drove around our town at least once a day looking and hoping I might find him, but it seemed hopeless. I posted on Craigslist, Facebook, Myspace and just about every other social media network I could think of, checked every pound within 30 miles, but it seemed like he was never coming home.
 After 4 months had passed I decided that hope was lost and we would just try to find a new friend. As I sat there and looked through the papers and ads for someone to love like we loved him the strangest thing happened. THE PHONE RANGE! Okay I know that doesn't sound strange lol but it was who was on the other end that I will never forget. The voice simply said "Excuse me ma'am my niece had seen your posting online, and I think I have your dog." As my eyes filled up with tears I thought for sure I would be let down, but she emailed a picture right over and his little face was right there. She had found him in a pound 200 miles away, being walked to death row. He still had a rope tied tightly around his neck and weighed only 3 pounds. This lady had the heart to bring him home to her group of rescues and by what I can only figure was fate her niece remembered my post on Cafemom. 
The 30 minute drive to her home seemed like it would never end, but finally I was at her doorstep. I had cried the whole way and wasn't even sure my little dog would remember me. When she opened that door he ran out and jumped all over me like not a day had passed. I asked the lady what I owed her for everything she had done. She said "Just promise me when you see a stray, try and save it. Remember that every stray started as someone's baby." I'm so glad that it was her that brought him home to me, and I have done just that, done something to help every stray that wondered my way find their way home. If you are wondering, he doesn't get to play unattended much lol.

#Cozycatfurniture Growing up Kitty with Ginger

  It has been so many years since we have had a kitten around the house I think I had forgotten just how active and amazing they are! I am sure many of you have seen me talk about Ginger our baby. She is FeLV positive, and just days short of her 7 month birthday. We also have 2 other boys with are getting up there in age. Thomas has always been a scratcher and I admit I had never thought about getting a kitty tree before this. Earlier in the month a great opportunity to review the Kitty Condo Tree from   Cozy Cat Furniture came about I thought oh great Ginger will have a place to nap, play, learn, and most importantly SCRATCH!      It Arrived in a box which I have to admit scared me a bit at first, it was much small then I thought.....was the tree smaller....was this one of those "some adult assembly required" items? Luckily it was easy to put together and came out so much sturdier then I had expected.  Even before we could give the word go Ginger was eager to play a

The Children's Place Review and Giveaway

Recently I was lucky enough to be given a chance to review The Children's Place . With summer time in full force here in West Texas getting some new summer time clothing was not only a needed thing but a fun thing to do. We decided to try out The Children's Place online ordering. I had never done this before and with a packed schedule it was very handy! My daughter loved sitting don and being able to pick out an entire outfit for under $25. In fact she was not only able to get an out fit but to additional pairs of shorts! Not only was ordering fast and easy but we received our clothing in 2 days. Considering we hit a record high 103 degrees yesterday it came none to soon! Here is the adorable outfit that she picked out :O) she had to model it of course! Butterfly Shirt $6; Matching Shorts $6;Flip Flops to go with her out fit $3.50. The excitement of picking her outfit herself Priceless. She really had so much fun with this and she loves her new flips flops(because the

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need: 2 Cups of Sugar 2 Cups of Water 1 Package Sugar Free Jello A candy Thermometer Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li
