Gardening in West Texas-Trying Something New

Nothing seems to be getting us through Mother Nature's mood swings. We go from 90 degrees to 28 in 36 hours flat. So I have just decided maybe we need to experiment and take a new route ;0)

My blackberry and blueberry bush have really started to take off! It is about time because I really though I would just be killing everything here in West Texas the rest of my life! But look flowers!We spent a couple hours at walmart and Lowe's this weekend and found some great plant that have survived outside in the frost and wind. Granted they have been battered and bruised but they have fresh growth and were CHEAP!I haven't given up completely though I have some fresh life that is just about ready to make a name for itself ;)

#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?

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

Build-A-Bear Thin Mint Bear Review and Giveaway

I've mentioned before my love of Build-a-Bear, there is nothing that brings a bigger smile to a child's face then being able to create their very own personalized furry friend. One of the great parts about Build-a-Bear is they are constantly updating the friends you can create. Right now they have a great selection on Valentines friends that you and your children can create and love. I got the chance this month to review a friend that is available just TODAY! The Girl Scouts Thin Mints Bear brings back so  many memories as of my time as a girl scout. I love that on one foot there is a Thin Mints cookie, which is my personal favorite! On the other there is the Girl Scout Trefoil, the symbol every Girl Scout knows and has pride in. My daughter is 5 years old now and I am so excited. In less then a year she will start here journey through the ranks of the Girl Scouts. My daughter simply loved this bear(as she does all her Build a Bear frien
