I am not a cold weather lover. Give me sunshine and warm weather everyday and I would be very happy. But I live in Michigan and it is winter time. We live on a small lake. It has been cold and the lake has frozen over. This one day the ice on the lake created a mirror. The trees on the other side of the lake were reflecting off the ice. I thought it was really pretty, so I went out and took a couple of picture. What do you think?

Has anyone missed me????

Has anyone noticed I have not posted or done anything really here on my blog? I have missed everyone and missed telling everyone what is going on. My Hubby lost his job again. About 4 years ago I opened a ebay account. It might of even been something I did for this blog. I only sold a couple of things and bought a few things with this account. When he lost his job we thought we would sell a few things around the house to help with bills. We found we enjoyed doing this. With some of the money we made we started buying things at garage and estate sales. I love to shop so I thought this was great fun. We did so good we opened a ebay store. It has been open for 3 months now and we have over 430 items listed for anyone to purchase. Just like this blog it has been a real learning adventure. This has become My Hubby's new job. When I'm not at work I'm working on our ebay store too. It has taken a lot of time. We are now starting to get faster and it is taking less time and that is why I'm posting tonight. I would love it if you would go check out our store. Go to ebay and go to crazymomw4boys in the stores. My hubby really wants to change the name but so far we have no come up with on we both like. If you have a name idea for us I'd love to hear it.

Armor All New Wax Technology

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Armor All for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


We live out in the country and love it! But living out in the country means we have to go down almost 5 miles of dirt roads. Living on a dirt road and driving on dirt roads means dirty cars. Sometimes it is not to bad but they are always dusty. My husband likes a clean dust free cars and he will not give up on this. He has a container in the garage full of all kinds of products he uses on the car to get it all cleaned up. For years he has used Armor All products. 

Armor all has come out with Extreme Shield Wax. It is a new was technology that not only protects but also repels dirt & grime. Okay this is what we need. I can see it now that dust will just blow by our car after using this! Plus the heavy dirt can not penetrate Armor All's invisible shield and will be easily washed away.  There is more to this product. It is easy to apply and can be applied in direct sunlight. I know my hubby always waxes our cars in a shady area and sometimes it's very hard to find. No worring about that with this product. When finished you will have a brillant long lasting shine with no white residue and is safe to apply on all automotive finishes. Sounds like a wonderful product. Easy to apply, brillant shine, can apply in the sun and dirt will not  penetrate the wax shield. I'm sure with this product my car will stay cleaner a lot longer.

I went to and "like" Armor All and then entered the 'What Life Did to you Car' sweepstakes for a chance to win a Comaro SS signed by Tony Stewart. I sure hope I win. If I don't I hope you do so go and enter too. Good Luck.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Whitney Farms for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I just love this time of year! I get so excited to work out in my flower garden and getting our vegetable garden all ready to plant. Last year my plants did not look as good as they have in the past. I really think I need to add something to my soil. I don't want to add anything that has additives or that smells bad. I really don't want anything with chemicals in my vegetable garden because I'm growing things to feed my family. I want it good for us and heathy.

I was doing some reading on things to us to improve the soil and found information on Whitney Farms®. Whitney Farms® has 100% natural plant soils with NO additives, nothing artificial, just ingredients from the Earth. This sure sounds like what I am looking for. I also found out that they have 100% natural plant foods also.

So far Whitney Farms® seems to be just what I'm looking for, they have organic soil and organic plant food. This sure sounds like what I have been looking for.

I have never used plant food before but since the plant food from Whitney Farms® is 100% natural I just might try it.

If you would like to try it go to Whitney Farms® and get a $3.00 coupon. I know I'm going too!

Organic Plant Food


I would just love to grow a beautiful veggie full garden like this one.

Baseball Season is HERE!

We now only have our Little Guy playing baseball now. All our boys at some point have played baseball and have really loved it. They have met some their best friend from their baseball teams. This year our Little Guy is on a new team. The change has been hard but I think it will all work out. They has a double header this weekend and let me tell you it was cold. I was all bundled up and that wind was still making me so cold. The kid's played great and didn't even seem to notice that it was very cold out. They lost the first game but won the last game. They all looked happy and we got to watch some good baseball. We have a busy baseball schedule so this will not be the last you hear about The Little Guy and baseball.

Mega Millions Fever

If you live in one of the 42 states that has the Mega Millions lottery then you know what I'm talking about.

The jackpot is up to 640 MILLION. It only takes one ticket to win!

Here at work a bunch of us all put in $5. We ended up purchasing 80 tickets. Wouldn't it be exciting to win.

Okay lets do a little dreaming........

What would you do if you were the winner of this huge jackpot?

I know that all my family and friends would benifit. I know so many that have had hard times and I would be so happy to help them out. I'm in need of a vacation in a very big way. So off to lay in the sun and watch the palm trees sway in the breeze for me, My Hubby, kids and anyone that would want to join us. I would also give some to charity. I think it is so much money I just can't even think that big but I would love to have that problem.

Do you have a special way you pick your numbers?

I don't I'm all about the easy pick. Maybe I should change that and do our birthdates or something.

I have been getting opportunities for such great products this month. This time I want to tell you about Miracle-Gro Expand ‘n Gro™.

I know I have spring fever. Last week we had beautiful summer like weather, this week it is more like spring. I can't wait to get time to work in my yard. I love planting flowers and playing in the dirt. Where I live we have mainly sand which not very many plants like. We add dirt to the flower beds to make happy plants and flowers. This is a lot of work.

Miracle-Gro has come up with Expand 'n Gro. it is a concentrated planting mix. This concentrated planting mix expands up to 3X when water is added. What a great idea. With this planting mix you will get up to 3X the flowers and vegetables crops then you would from your normal soil. It will also improve your soil for mulitiple years not just one planting season. Feeds your plants up to 6 months. Expand 'n Gro is made of all nature fibers that hold up to 50% more water than basic potting soil.

I thing this sounds like a wonderful product and one I'm for sure going to try this year. Would you like a small sample of  this new product?  Here is how you can get one.

Scotts Snap Spreader System Perfect For Spring

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Scotts® for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Spring has come early to Michigan and I was just sitting on my porch yesterday thinking "my lawn really needs some work".  I have spots that are just dirt, I just don't have the lawn I use to have. I think I'm going to change that and work on it this year.

I don't like fertilizing my lawn or anything else to do with the spreader we have. Uggg it is a nightmare to use. It gets stuck, it spreads what ever I have in it all over the place, the lawn, the driveway, the car, the patio, you get the idea. Maybe my spreader is the reason my lawn does not look very good.

Today I learned about Scotts® Snap® Spreader System. What a great idea.  There is NO cutting, NO opening, NO pouring from a heavy bag so that means NO spilling. I love it. There are more benifits like this system auto-sets the proper flow rate. It also has a EdgeGuard feature that keeps product where I want it on my lawn. Not the driveway, car or patio, I really, really love this.


There is also a PERKS program go to Snap perks on Facebook and press "like". You will have have a change to win amazing prizes. I also love prizes.

I'm going to head out tonight and get a Scotts® Snap® Spreader System and get working on my lawn.

50th Birthday Party

Saturday night we sure had fun. I surprised My Hubby with a 50th birthday party. It was a wonderful evening filled full of family, friends, food and drinks. Good friends that we have not seen in years showed up and that was very wonderful. There is nothing like good friends.

This is My Hubby and his mom. After all she was there 50 years ago too.

Here we are having a good time.

Dexter was a real party animal at the party too. It takes alot out of a dog doing all that socializing. This picture was the day after the party. Lot's of napping made of a nice lazy Sunday.

Book Review-Unspeakable by Sandra Brown

Born deaf, lately widowed, Anna Corbett fights to keep the ranch that is her son's birthright, unaware that she is at the center of Herbold's horrific scheme--and that her world of self-imposed isolation is about to explode...
Drifter Jack Sawyer arrives at Anna's ranch asking for work, hoping to protect the innocent woman and her son from Herbold's rage. But Sawyer can't outrun the secrets that stalk him--or the day of reckoning awaiting them all...

Unspeakable by Sandra Brown on Amazon.

I really enjoyed this book. It has a good story and it didn't have any slow chapters. This book was a good read and I recommend it.

Happy 50th birthday to my wonderful hubby.

This is my hubby with his mom. My hubby is her baby. Tomorrow we are having a little birthday party for him. I'm looking forward to celebrating his big day.
