Always arguing with my daughter over what to wear!...

For the past few months, every morning with my 4-year old daughter is an arguement over what to wear. (I thought this would not happen for many more years, but boy was I wrong!) I will pick her out something to wear and she doesn't like it. (She is so independent!) And when I let her pick, it's something old/doesn't match/inappropriate/etc.
So hubby and I came up with an idea I am hoping will help! We went to Target yesterday and purchased this 7-shelf cubby organizer for $12.99. I sat with Princess Mimi and together we picked out five outfits for the week (Monday through Friday). Actually, she picked two, I picked two and another (the fifth outfit) we picked together. Each morning when I ask her to get dressed she must pick from the organizer (not her drawers, not her closet!) I have the outfit, undies, shoes and hair accessories all put together.

This better work, ha!

Almost back to school...

Wow, it's hard to believe that so many schools around the country are going back to school! I know several schools in Louisiana that went back on Friday, and some counties in Central Florida started today. It seems to get earlier and earlier each year, doesn't it?

Well, my Princess Mimi is starting VPK4 this year! She's been in preschool for the past few days (partial days) and I know she will do great this school year. However, since losing my job (lay off) in the Spring, Tom-Tom will stay home with me. I am going to try some preschool homeschooling with him based and use the web site

Monitor Your Wellness with Blood Testing

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of All opinions are 100% mine.

Are you looking for Discount Online Blood Testing that is quick and easy?

Last week, my husband went to the lab to get his annual blood work done. However, his doctor appointment is not for another two weeks and he really wants to know if his cholesterol is in the healthy range or not. (He's been on some new vitamins that promises to lower his numbers). The lab won't give him the results. He must wait until he sees his primary care doctor. So this new web site is of particular interest to us right now!
