We've Moved

We've moved from blogger over to Wordpress.  Unfortunately, not all of the email & RSS feed subscribers came with us.  Sooo...if you haven't been getting emails for the past week or so, Run over to How Was Your Day and sign up again! 

I'd hate for you to miss a moment of the fun!

Dinosaurs Guest post from: Natalie Walter

Last summer we moved to a small town in Texas to be near my daughter, son-in-law, and my two-year-old grandson. As soon as we moved in we got our television service through I did not want to be without television because when my grandson spends the night, he likes to watch all these cute children’s programs. Recently he has become obsessed with dinosaurs. He goes to a mother’s morning out program once a week, and I think they “studied” dinosaurs one week. After that all he wanted to watch on television was a program called Dinosaur Train. All these little dinosaurs on the program travel on a train to different time periods of dinosaurs. Then they learn about whatever dinosaur they visit that day. There is also a guy at the end they call the paleontologist that recaps everything they learned about the dinosaur of the day. I have even learned a lot about dinosaurs by watching the program with my grandson. By the time he is old enough to go to kindergarten he is going to know so much that they are going to have to look for things to teach him. He will already know so much just from watching all those educational children’s programs.

Is the Prescription Savings Club a Good Fit for You

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

At my day job, we recently switched insurance plans.  It’s a little lacking, to say the least.  I’m not sure if whoever is responsible for the switch doesn’t understand the way insurance works, or if someone just spun the program really well to my employer. 


At least I know I can get a decent program for our prescriptions at Walgreens.  You can join the Prescription Savings Club at Walgreens for $20 a year for individuals and just $35 per year for families.  The family plan  includes dependents under the age of 22 and even covers your pets!  I used to have a dachshund that took thyroid medication.  I would spend $30 a month just on his pills!  At the time, I scoffed at the notion of pet insurance, but now I totally understand it. 


“I’m so rarely sick” you say.  That’s okay!  The Prescription Savings Club is good for more than just prescriptions!  It not only covers discounts on your generic and name-brand prescriptions, but also flu shots, diabetic supplies, and breathing treatments like nebulizers.  Members can also get bonuses for purchasing Walgreens brand products and Walgreens photo processing.   


For $1.66 a month for singles and under $3 a month for families, the Prescription Savings Club is definitely something worth looking in to.

Tiny Prints for Valentines

I always loved Valentine's Day at school.  It may be because there was no pressure and everyone got gifts.  Or it could be that I love to get mail.  I'm not totally sure which...Or maybe Valentine's Day led to my love of getting mail?   Hmmm...

The store-bought $3 for a class pack of Valentine Cards weren't for me, either.  No ma'am.  I wanted something special!  So, of course, the hunt was ON.

Guest Post - Savory Meat Roll from Kids Are Grown

We're kind of big into junk food here. Have you ever seen the movie Mermaids, where they only eat finger foods? Yeah...that's us!

Melissa over at The Kids are Grown. Now What? has this recipe for a meat roll that looks kinda tasty. Her recipe is gluten free, too! We don't eat meat, so I'd make it vegetarian. I think it would still be good and would work well for sporting event gatherings. You know, like big ones that happen on Sundays.

Free Valentines from VistaPrint
