        Back in the Saddle again!

        Well, I have taken a nice break from blogging and now I am back in action. A lot has happened in the last year. My husband deployed. That was actually a HUGE deal and really the reason my blog has suffered to much. Then when he came back we had a lot of adjustments. Then in December we bought a new house. We have decided to stay in Georgia forever! Now I am ready to roll with this blog!

        Thanks for reading!

        Spring is coming! Shop here for some great deals!

        Ever wish there was a place you could do all your shopping in one place? This place  has everything from stuff for your vehicle to stuff for your bathroom.

        Around this time of year, I do a lot of online shopping. It is starting to feel a little warmer here in Georgia. So I am finding myself looking for Spring-like products. These towels are SO cute and I would love to have some in my guest bath. I love the sweet flower print on them.

        If you are looking for furniture, this website has it all. If you are in the market for a new chair, some of these can double as a sleeper for your out of town guests. I know when my family comes down from Michigan, we are always scrambling for a place to sleep for them.

        During gardening season, I usually employ my hubby to haul all of my stuff around for me. I am adding one of these carts  to my wish lists this year. It would make life much easier for him and for me!
