Monopoly Junior #GameNight


Monopoly Junior is an excellent game for little ones. Today I am fighting off a nasty cold and my kids are happily enjoying their Monopoly game while mommy gets some rest. Monopoly Jr. is perfect for teaching young ones the skills needed for all board games, like patience, sharing, and being a good sport. 

The game pieces are very whimsical and delightful. There is a small car, a boat, a kitty, and a puppy, all in a very cartoonish format to satisfy any child. It is for 2-4 players over the age of 5. My daughter has enjoyed playing even though she is only 4 she can have just as much fun racing around the board by simply rolling the dice and counting the spaces. 


Hasbro makes so many amazing games I can't wait to watch my kids grow to enjoy them all just like I did. These games make such amazing Christmas and birthday presents and really help to bring the family together! Plan your own Hasbro family #GameNight!

I received the product(s) complimentary to test and/or review by being a member of Influenster.

Fall Photos & Winter Prep


 I just wanted to share some of my wonderful fall photos with everyone before the snow hits and the winter photos begin. It's time to get outside and rake the leaves and prepare for a cold winter.


How do you prepare for cold winters? As soon as the temperature drops I think of ways to keep my home warm to keep my heating costs down. Here is what I do to winterize my house:

  • Insulate vents and other drafty places
  • Caulk windows and doors
  • Seal windows with poly 
  • Install thicker curtains
  • Install weather stripping
  • Uninstall outside hose & turn off water to that tap
  • Get some area rugs if your floors are bare like mine
  • Get everyone slippers
  • Make sure everyone has a variety of sweaters, robes, and blankets
That's about it. Right now I am going to clean up my yard and get my chicken run winterized. Have a great day!

Did you know how much stuff people donate to thrift stores that are unopened, untouched, and brand spanking new?!? I got so may gifts this morning that were completely brand new and all 10 gifts came to under $20 all together! That's right everything combined was under $20! I would love to show you what I got but I can't spoil it for them :)

    Check your local thrift stores for gifts you never know what you will find. And if you are one crafty cookie you can take anything used you find there and create something spectacular!
