Ammo Can Pride…

Ammo cans are a great way to store military uniform stuff and could be used for military décor. Find them at your local military surplus shops or thrift store. I have a couple of cans in my husbands uniform room and store all his belts and Eagle Globe Anchors. They look very industrial and they […]

Would a worm go on a walk?

We received the book “Would a Worm Go on a Walk?” to read and review. Olivia loved that she was able to read it all on her own. She loved the illustrations because they were funny and colorful. We read the book outside in the back yard to see if we could find any worms, […]

When Daycare Closes at 6PM

As a working mom I watch my computer clock like a hawk for the clock to hit 5PM, so I can leave the office and pick up my kids from after-school care… If I’m in a meeting in the late afternoon I’m probably looking at my watch every 30 seconds trying to figure out when […]

Casi Cielo Coffee Savor!

I am sucker for great branding, especially if it’s Latino. I was at a grocery store that has a Starbucks and walked by an advertising display of Casi Cielo Coffee from Guatemala. I fell in love with the name of the coffee, Casi Cielo, means Almost Heaven. The logo looks simple and elegant. The purple […]
