Judgy judgerson.

One night last week, David took Bo dog out on his leash for a walk to go pee. (Bo hates the backyard and is spoiled rotten. He'll hold his pee ALL day til David gets home and walks him but that's another story).   So, we're getting ready for bed and David takes Bo out... I'm sitting on the couch finishing up something online when I hear it- fighting dogs. Oh no! I run outside to see Lassie attacking Bo.  I kid you not, this dog looked like Lassie.  We've heard from about a million people that Bo is an "agressive breed" and he's "scary" and we shouldn't be allowed to have him on post. (He's an American Bulldog.  He's loud and completely allowed on post just for the record). 
Anyway, so Bo is on his leash (like he's supposed to be when he's out front) and out of nowhere this dog comes running down the block growling and barking at Bo. David hadn't even left our front yard! Bo loves the tree in our front yard so they never even have to go far!

6 Seconds Flat {and a giveaway}

Today's post is sponsored by Wendy's. All opinions are truly my own. And the giveaway is from me. It's no way sponsored by Wendy's

Did you know that just 6 seconds could win you $6,000 in Wendy’s #6SecondsFlat Flatbread Sweepstakes?! Seriously, head here to find out more info.

All that to say, Wendy's Flatbread Grilled Chicken sandwiches are BACK, but only for a limited time! You can choose between either the Smoky Honey Mustard and the Asiago Ranch.  I grabbed myself the Asiago Ranch and boy do I not regret that! SO delicious! Owen actually stole the last 1/3 of it from me.  I didn't argue with him though, at least he was eating. (He's been a little sickling lately fighting off a cold + teething so if he's going to eat, I won't object to sharing).

Here's my video:

Back to school Pillsbury style!

Okay, for real... mom life is rough. Especially with kids in school. I thought life got easier once they went off to school but Maddie's only on 1/2 day and Tuesday is early day for Fin & Maddie. It's weird. My schedule was so thrown off, I had no idea what to do with my days or when to run errands. Do I rush to do them after dropping the kids off and hope to be done in time to pick up Maddie?! Definitely not doing anything major on Tuesdays. What is Early Release Day all about anyway?! I just don't get that.

Today I'm going to share with you some tips to help you (or at least how I helped ME) get into that Back to School routine.

Dear Fashion/Beauty lovers.... {giveaway}


I'm 28!


Today's giveaway is for the fashionista in you!

Good luck!

When Your Kid Has a Cell phone: Tracking Technology

Image credit:

Advancements in technology lead to ease of access to multimedia, internet, gaming, messaging and downloads for kids with their smart phones. All these activities help in easy and instant communication. In addition to these, it also provides an option to download videos, images, music and everything else that you wish. All such activities on the other hand are a high level of disadvantage for the inappropriate behaviour of kids. So, parents are very much worried about their kids and planning to monitor their activities with their smart phones.

Cat bearding and Fresh Step

Disclosure: I am a member of the Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community. This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias and their client about Fresh Step with Odor Shield cat litter.

We had two cats.  We only have one now,  Roscoe ran away a while back.  We still have Bella cat and she's a terror.  She loves to torment poor Bo dog.  She literally pops out from under the couch to swat at him then will dive back under it and just hide.  She's evil but in the funniest way.
She's Maddie's cat.  We've had her since Miss Maddie was 1.  Bella sleeps on top of Maddie's head at night (not on her, but above her head on the pillow).  It's pretty cute. 

Anyway, having a cat means that we need Cat litter and not just any cat litter would do. We hated being able to smell the cat box from another room.
We've always preferred Fresh Step so imagine how happy I was when they came out with the new and improved Fresh Step OdorShield Formula!

If you can smell the odors from your litter box from another room- trust me, I've been there; you may want to consider switching your cat litter to the Clorox Fresh Step with Odor Shield!
Here are a few reasons why:
  • Anti-Microbials Anti-microbials help stop the growth of bacteria that can cause bad smells.
  • Absorbent Clay Formed from volcanic ash, clay quickly absorbs liquids and traps odors.
  • Paw Activation Fragrance is embedded in the clay and activated by your cat’s paws.
  • Activated Carbon Activated carbon eliminates odors by trapping and filtering them.

Anyway,  have you guys heard of Cat Bearding?!
No? Oh man, go google it and click images! SO FUNNY!

Miss Maddie and I attempted it ourselves.

I even posted a video on my instagram account.
Cat bearding it a bit more difficult than you'd think, man.
Darn Bella Cat didn't wanna cooperate with us.
Maddie got a kick out of it though.  I laugh every time I watch the video!
You can watch it  here.

Have you tried the Clorox Fresh Step with Odor Shield yet?
Even Owen knows a great thing when he sees it!

You can head here to check out our Google+ album and our adventures in Sam's Club!

Plus, you can get DOUBLE Paw Points rewards (only at Sam's Club) starting 9/9 - 10/31 when you buy the Clorox Fresh Step with Odor Shield cat litter! If you like to earn prizes just for buying products that you love, the Paw Points program is for you!

Uhhh.... yeah.... I got nothing.

I feel like it's been the longest week. It was a 4 day weekend so my days have just been thrown off completely and now it's Friday and I'm just sitting here dumbfounded that it's already the weekend.
And it's been a busy week and we have a busy weekend!

Tuesday morning, I ran to the commissary and then to the PX to pick up Maddie a little backpack she'd been drooling over.
Wednesday I met up with the Sarahs (there are two) for coffee and a park date for Owen.
Thursday one of the Sarahs was nice enough to go with me to Sam's Club so I could use her membership and then we browsed around Babies R Us (While I sneakily asked what she needed for her soon to be baby) and I bought Owen THE CUTEST JACKET EVER!
This one:
Can be found here.  Thank you Babies R Us.

Now if only Fall would reach Georgia so that Owen could wear it!
Sarah got a tiny 0-3 month one for her little bundle as well!

And then today (Friday) I really need to actually go grocery shopping but I'm probably not going to til after the weekend is over. We won't be home most of it so no real reason to grocery shop.

In other news, David graduates airborne school today! YAY!
He's jumped out of an airplane 5x in the past 3 days. He's sore and exhausted. He landed on his butt the 2nd jump and has walked with a limp ever since. Bruised tail bones HURT! Poor thing.
Oh but I did pick him up a banana cream pie and a case of Sam Adams seasonal beer as a congrats present so he was pretty excited to see that when he got home. Got some major wife points on that beer! (He spent all last Fall trying to find the Caramel Apple kind & we could NOT find it ANYWHERE and the box has it in there along with 2 that he really likes and then 2 other he hasn't tried).

In other other news, Fin's alarm just went off. Time to kick into mommy mode and get these munchkins ready for school.
Wish me luck!

Oh and I'll leave you with some pictures from our week.
The ones of Maddie's hair- she can't see the back so asks me to take pictures for her to see what it looks like.

And for the record, my house is never spotless but in my defense, I have 3 kids and 2 dogs and a husband.
It's not dirty, just lived in messy.
And anything you see in the floor is probably something the dogs chewed up that morning! They're so fun. (Sarcasm in case you didn't quite catch that).
Unless I'm sick. If I'm sick that means I haven't cleaned up the house in a few days and I'd avoid it because man oh man this house gets messy and it just happens SO freakin' fast.

Blah. That's all I've got for today.
I'm not fully awake yet and my brain is already going nonstop about all the random things I need to get done today.
Hope you guys have a wonderful weekend.
