Wordless Wednesday: Holiday Train

I was so bummed that I forgot about the holiday train that stops in our little town every year. They do food collections at each stop for local food shelves. I haven't been getting our local paper this year so didn't even realize the train was coming...until I drove into town to pick Buddy up from basketball practice.

It's really cool because they put on a musical show inside one of the cars for about 1/2 an hour. It's a wonderful night for families. Next year!

Helping Save A Historic Site

Why would anyone want to destroy a historic German settlement in Ohio?  Our federal government, that's who.  Zoar was founded in 1817 by German religious separatists to set up a communal society in a new way of life.  Zoar is unique in the way it is preserved.  A walk around Zoar is like stepping into a time machine.  Everything is pristine, and you will be taking a stroll though our history.

Little Man, my grandmother, and I had a great time in historic Zoar- we checked out a metal-working shop, amazing gardens, a bakery, a tin shop where the town's cups, bowls, etc were made.  We saw the actual artifacts that the residents used, and were led on a tour by a descendant of the people of Zoar- her father had lived and worked there all his life.  A quiet, hardworking, unassuming people who came to America for a better life and an opportunity for their families, they were often separated from each other for months and years at a time trying to pay back the loan from the land.

Take a look at more of our photos from our trip to Zoar here- and let me tell you, fall is a great time to visit. 

These people wasted nothing- and especially not time- and did not have easy lives.  These German separatists, mostly farmers, were persecuted in their own land and came here to live and work freely.  Zoar is a living, breathing testament to the American dream and the values that we claim to hold dear.  As a young country, it would be a shame to allow a historical settlement to be flooded- we may not have the history that England or Spain does, but that doesn't mean it is not just as important.  Here is where your hand is needed. 

The current issue is, the levee which is at the base of the town.  This levee is in dire need of repairs according to US Army Corps of Engineers reports, it has a Dam Safety Action Classification 1 rating, the worst rating possible.  The USACE has three options: Repair the levee, tear down the village and let the area flood or relocate Zoar to higher ground.  The only option that makes sense is repair the levee.  Tearing down or trying to relocate the village would destroy this historic treasure.  Repairs would help keep this village alive well into the next century for our grand children to enjoy as well.

Take a look at this petition - please sign it if you agree.  Get the word out, Save Zoar!!
You can follow them on Facebook and Twitter as well.

Please email me at to share this on your site.  Don't forget to sign it, too!  We can all  help save Zoar.

Marie Callender’s Pot Pies

marie callender's logo I have this thing about comfort food when it gets cold outside. I love it big time. When fall turns to winter and the temperature drops around these parts, evening dinners take the shape of comfort food. Marie Callender’s fits this bill nicely.ShoppingI remember when my daughters were growing up, one of their favorite dinners to eat was Marie Callender’s Chicken and Broccoli Pot Pies. We were so bummed when they stopped making them. Of course, this caused us to try other ones to find a new favorite!

Now it’s me and my boys and trying to find a wintery dinner we’ll all enjoy is next to impossible. Well, the other night I brought home a couple of Marie Callender’s Pot Pies and had a go at their taste buds.Marie Callender Pot PieDoodle was up first. Doodle and I decided to try the Beef Pot Pie. He wasn’t thrilled because he always has preconceived ideas about the foods he’s going to try…that he won’t like them. So, I asked him to try the tiniest bit of the beef. HA! He liked it. Take that little one! =)

I love it when I give my boys something they think they won’t like and they end up really liking it!

The beef pieces were nice and big! When I get a pot pie my biggest gripe is that the meat is chinsy and not worth it! That’s NOT the case with any of the Marie Callender’s Pot Pies! The meat pieces and the veggies are all very well sized. No microscope needed.

I also love the crust even when cooked in the microwave! This is a meal I’m always too rushed to put in the oven and having a flaky crust from a microwave is pretty close to a miracle in my book.Cooked Marie Callender Pot Pie

Selfishly, I decided to eat the Creamy Parmesan Chicken Pot Pie. What can I say? I didn’t want to wasted it on two boys who would’ve snubbed their noses at it. First of all, it’s definitely creamy and rich. I could actually make two meals out of this it’s so filling! I’m a grazer so this would be fantastic as leftovers!

I have to admit though, it’s so yummy I had a hard time listening to my belly telling me it was full. I really just wanted to keep eating each morsel!

Marie Callender’s Pot Pie varieties include:
Chicken Pot Pie
Turkey Pot Pie
Beef Pot Pie
Creamy Mushroom Chicken Pot Pie
Creamy Parmesan Chicken Pot Pie
Honey Roasted Chicken Pot Pie
Cheesy Chicken Pot Pie

  • With cooler weather moving in, busy moms looking for delicious comfort food for the dinner table can turn to Marie Callender’s Pot Pies.  They are made with no preservatives and can save moms time and energy while warming the kids up after a day of playing in the snow.
  • Marie Callender’s Pot Pies are available for a suggested retail price of $2.10-$2.99.
  • Marie Callender’s meals are available in grocery stores nationwide. Product lines include Complete Meals, One-Dish Entrées, Fresh Flavor Steamers, Fresh Mixers, Multi-serve Bakes, Pot Pies, small Fruit Pies and Dessert Pies & Cobblers.

    Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol in Imax

    The only time I've ever been to an IMAX is to watch an educational movie with a school field trip. To see Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol at an Imax would be intense! I mean, that screen is HUGE! Can you imagine the all the action happening that loudly and largely? Yes, it would totally rock!

    Starting December 16th, a full five days before its North American premier, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol will be shown in a mind-blowing IMAX experience in 300 theatres across the country. Join Ethan Hunt and his team of rogue IMF agents, in this awesome spy adventure that will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. With 30-minutes of scenes shot with IMAX cameras, fans will be able to enjoy certain sequences of the movie in larger than life proportions. You will be right in the action as Ethan Hunt (played by Tom Cruise) scales the world愀 tallest building; the Burk Khalifa Tower in Dubai, as this and other thrilling moments expand to fit the entire IMAX screen. As an added bonus, IMAX will offer the first previews of the upcoming Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises, prior to Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol.

    I've seen all of the other Mission Impossible movies and it never ceases to amaze me the stunts Tom Cruise will do. In the trailer, which you have GOT to watch, they talk about people getting vertigo because it's so real while watching it in IMAX! How cool is that? I have SO got to see this movie at an IMAX! Ours is at the Minnesota Zoo, so I know exactly where to get a crew of us to have a night out!

    Make sure you check out the Imax Facebook page to keep up on all the activities they have going on!

    Have you ever been to an IMAX movie that wasn't educational, but on the scale of something like Mission Impossible? If so, what was it and how was your experience? Would you suggest I see it on the IMAX screen?

    Partylite Home Party & Sweepstakes

    This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of PartyLite Simple Pleasures Holiday Sweepstakes for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


    Since I've lived in Minnesota, I have yet to be invited to a PartyLite party. I had been invited, and attended several when I lived in Washington. I'm not sure if there just aren't very many Partylite hostesses in my area or if I'm just not connected with the right people to garner an invite!

    I've hosted other in-home parties before and tend to enjoy them. Partylite sounds like it offers hostesses free products!! Who doesn't love free?! If I were to have a party, I think I'd actually try and have two. The first party would be all my friends from church. The second party would have all my friends and co-workers from work.

    What I was most excited about was the PartyLite Simple Pleasures Holiday Sweepstakes. It already ended on the 15th, but I like the extra bonus they throw in on occasion for people who sign up to host a party! Now that's an incentive, isn't it? I mean, 60,000 people selling Partylite and 12 million attending parties every year shows they are a fantastic company!

    I went through their catalog the other day as I was looking for some holiday decor! I need to go back today to check out their new Winter/Spring 2012 Catalog to see if they've added any new items! I always feel like a kid in a candy shop when I peruse their catalogs. Making a list and checking it twice! So far I really like the Clearly Creative Collection because you can change the contents of the glass for different seasons or holidays.Clearly Creative Collection You can check out more of their Collections on the PartyLite Facebook page! You'll be able to find some great ideas and keep up with all their events and happenings!

    If you've checked them out, what Collection do you like the most? Have you gone to any Partylite parties lately?

    Tabletop Decorating Via #KmartHoliday #Cbias

    Shopping is one thing. I can do that. Decorating on the other hand…not a strong suit. I went shopping at Kmart and found some great decorations for my table, now I just have to hope it all comes together.

    Dining room

    I emptied out all of the things I bought: table cloth, napkins, napkin rings, candles, goblets, candle hurricanes, and a table runner. Will any of it match and even if it does, will I put it together so it looks right? LOL
    Right now, most everything in the holiday shop is on sale. Much of what I bought was 60% off…already!! I know, crazy. Stretched the dollar though.

    Ok, so I realized I made a bit of a counting mistake. I only got 4 napkins and 4 napkin ring holders. I know those go together, but I got 6 placemats to go along with our 6 chairs. Looks like I might have to go back!

    Table decorations

    My table has one of the leaves in it, but after I put the table cloth on, I realized it was a bit long which means when I do need to put my extra extra leaf in it’ll still fit perfectly! SCORE!

    Out came the placemats, napkins and napkin holders. Lo’ and behold, they worked! Success!! I mean, you really can’t go wrong with red, green and cream. I should’ve put the table runner on before the other linens, but I got it on. Then I put out my 3 poinsettia doilies. They are such a cute accent.

    Next I grabbed my 2 boxes of 3 sets of Goblets. I also had bought a 9 pack of cinnamon scented candles to go inside the Goblets. Ahhh I just realized one set of the Goblets is poinsettias! Perfect with the doilies! Dontcha love it when a plan comes together?

    I have to admit, I was so excited when I got this table put together. All of a sudden I felt like a grown up. I mean, this layout really looked good in my humble opinion!

    Goblet layout
    After I had my grown up moment, I wanted to try out my semi-woodsy idea, too. I had also bought 3 Hurricane candles and a bag of cinnamon scented pinecones. Now, for the record, these pinecones should come packaged in something other than netting. This is the messiest stuff in the world!

    Hurricane Holders
    I poured the pinecones into the hurricanes, put the candle holder on and the candles inside. Next I grabbed two pillar candles that I also bought. They have a cute sisal rope around it with mini pinecones as an accent. Look at this coming together!! Woo Hoo It’s nice to know I can change the feel of my dining room.

    So, there I am, all grown up in my Kmart decorated dining room. It’s a first for me and I have to be honest, I could go hoity toity in a heart beat. Who knew?

    Ok, what set do you like most? Do you like the goblets or hurricanes better? I kind of like them both…a lot!

    Make sure you come take a look at my entire shopping experience at Google+. It's a fun way to see how it all went from beginning to end!

    Kmart Tabletop Holiday Decorating #Cbias #KmartHoliday

    Ok, I have a confession. I haven’t done a single thing to decorate for Christmas. Yep, not a single thing. My 12yo son on the other hand got tired of me waiting and brought his tinsel Christmas tree that he made in 4th grade into the house. It’s our only decoration.

    Well, I just got a phone call from a good friend asking me if I wanted a Christmas tree. This year I was going to forego it since we’re heading out of town for Christmas, but since the boys have been asking me when I’m going to decorate, I decided we’d take the tree.

    Then I had the opportunity to go shopping at Kmart for tabletop decorations. I have to be honest here. I’ve never decorated a table for Christmas. I know, my life has been so empty until now. I just don’t know how to decorate and always think what I come up with isn’t going to even match.

    Before I went, I headed to Kmart online to get some ideas of the choices I would have before I got to the store. I wasn’t even sure what I’d want to decorate a table. Thankfully, I got some really great ideas and couldn’t wait to check out the centerpieces!Kmart OnlineSo, today I decided it was high time to figure out what the heck I was doing and find some gene inside me that could make decorations match. Today I’ll just be sharing my shopping trip. My next Kmart post will show you the end result!

    I’m lucky to even have found Kmart today with all the fog. The picture you see here is from another time I shopped at Kmart because I couldn’t even see the sign!

    Right I walked in, there was Christmas product and signage! Thankfully, Kmart keeps their holiday products in the same area so I headed to the other side of the store. See, I was heading in the right direction!

    IMG_0042 I got to the holiday section and the first thing I find is their centerpieces. Unfortunately, it’s so late in the season my options were pretty limited. I know, sad, but it’s my own fault for waiting for so long! I perused what they had and decided I’d come back after I did more window shopping before my cart shopping.Tabletop

    What I was also really interested in was linens. I don’t have a single table linen in my home. Nope, not a one. Not even NON-holiday linens. I’m telling you, I’ve lived a sheltered life.

    I walked around the holiday section trying to find other items I could add to my tabletop. A lot of what I found initially would be perfect for the kitchen. I would’ve purchased some of those if I even thought I’d have the time to clean and decorate in there. I was tickled to find a lot of Star Wars themed items and I’ll be going back to get a couple for those boys of mine.Kitchen ideasThe more I went into the holiday shop, the more I found for the whole season! There was wrapping paper, gift bags, storage totes, food, paper products, and candy galore!

    I was still intent on finding table linens so I asked one of the employees and she gave me easy directions. But, before I headed anywhere, I wanted to make sure I grabbed some decorations. I was pretty indecisive so I grabbed two 3pc Goblet Sets: Poinsettia Stem Set and . I’m thinking my table is big enough that I could put one on one end and the other set on the other.Table linensI wasn’t sure what candles I wanted to I decided to come back after I mulled it over for a bit.

    I was happy to find the table linens exactly where they were supposed to be. Now was the time to panic. What goes together? I wish the packaging would’ve show a complete dining table totally decorated.Table ideasDo I go with all the same colors? All red, all green, or all cream? Do I mix and match to make it more festive? People, I had no idea what I was doing! And there were so many accessories: napkins, napkin holders, doilies, table runners, etc.

    So, I decided to do a cream table cloth. I know, what would anyone in their right mind be doing getting a cream table cloth? Well, there were enough of the other colors so that I would have a full set of what I think I need!Kmart holidayThen I got a green table runner, red napkin holders, red placemats, green napkins, and poinsettia doilies. For some reason this got my thinking cap really smoking and I wanted to buy one of everything! I kept my spending to a dull roar, but decided to go back to the holiday section to see if there were more that I wanted to add to my aroundI decided on a 3pc hurricane set that isn’t as fancy as the other 2 sets of Goblets. Who knows, I might want to be a bit less hoity toity. I also added some cinnamon scented pinecones that I’d put into the hurricanes for wintery decoration.

    My shopping cart filled up very quickly and my brain was on overload. All I could do was hope that when I got home everything in my cart would come together in perfect harmony! We’ll have to see in my next Kmart post if it all worked out!

    Do you typically go all out when it comes to decorating? Is every room decorated in some fashion?

    Wordless Wednesday: Family Game Day

    Can’t believe I missed Wordless Wednesday last week. Life has been so crazy since Thanksgiving. Is it just me or everyone else, too?

    Last Sunday the boys and I headed to the Cities for an event that didn’t turn out the way I had expected, but they had a fun time. I had an idea of what was going to be happening and it turned out to be something different.

    The gal that did the face painting was stellar. She did it so fast, but man, she was good!

    Best Buy Family Game Day EventI also had the bonus of seeing Amy from Grinning Cheek to Cheek! Two days in a row I got to hang with her for a little bit.

    Bobiam Streetwear Giveaway

    Bobiam Logo This past Fall I’ve been finding some really awesome local companies that I’m excited to share with my readers! One local company is Bōbiam. Here’s an introduction to them via their website:

    “Bōbiam is an Artistic and UVSmART streetwear company. We are unique in that we feature youth artists only, as young as 5yrs old.  Tremendously passionate leadership who are committed to the long-term success of the Bōbiam brand backs us. Our owner's started this business in their home, inspired by their 8yr old son's art creations.   The company is named after that very artist, who's nick name is Liam Bōbiam or just Bōbiam.  At Bōbiam, kids, charity and ideas trump profits.  We want to make a difference!”

    How awesome is that? I’m thinking about having my boys who are 8 and 12 do some designs and send them in. Wouldn’t it be fun to see your kid’s design on someone’s clothing?

    When I got my tube with my shirt in it, I was impressed immediately with the fact that my shipping label was written by hand. It wasn’t a computer generated label! So, it’s personal right from the get go.Bobiam LayoutIncluded with my new shirt was a Bōbiam stretchy bracelet. In fact, with sales of these bracelets, $4 from the $5 sale go to charity! WOW!

    One of the first things I noticed about my new Bōbiam was how soft it was. I also loved the fact that as a woman’s shirt, it fits my shape. I find it so hard to find t-shirts that fit a female shape instead of being generically large all around, which I find highly unattractive. Just my opinion is all.

    I put this shirt on, a medium, and it fit like a glove! It was really comfortable. I won’t go overboard, but I’d just like to say how well it fit. =) The arm length was probably my favorite part. I find it nearly impossible to find a long sleeve shirt that has sleeves that extend at least to my wrist, if not just a bit past. Sleeves that go up my forearm when I stretch is so irritating! For me, the length was perfect!

    My shirt, only because pink isn’t my color, will be going to my oldest daughter for Christmas. She will absolutely fall in love with this shirt as she loves all things pink and it will fit her like a glove. Color me jealous! Here are the shirts I wish I had (hint hint for Christmas):

    Now’s the opportunity for you to win a $30 gift code to Bōbiam for your item of choice.

    Meet-Meme Social Trading Cards

    I love Twitter for oh so many reasons. One of those reasons is Social Media chats that are always happening! One such chat last week had to do with Meet-Meme Social Trading Cards. I hadn't heard of them before and figured I'd go check them out so that I knew what we'd be discussing.

    Oh boy, I barely got back to the chat at all I was so taken in by their Trading Cards. They're pumped up business cards! From page one you'll see what I'm talking about. You get to start off picking either a color or theme for your card. And the cool part about picking your color? You can choose more than one! AHHHH! No having to stick with the same looking business card day after day. You can have all the same information on cards with different colors or different designs.

    The Meet-Meme Cards come in packs of 10 packs up to 50 cards. 100 packs come in 2 boxes of 50 cards each. So, that means you can choose how ever many colors you want and they'll separate them evenly! How stinkin' cool is that? Where else could you do that?

    Ok, moving on to more coolness. The next section you get to add Social Media sites! I have a LinkedIn account, but it doesn't do anything for me as a blogger and I never use it so that's the only SoMe site I didn't connect with. Maybe I should have?

    Section 3 requires you to put on your thinking, creative cap. You get to add your bio (mine is quite bland because I'm not creative), a Special Power, and a Quote/Hobby/Nemesis. On the same page you get to add info about how people can reach you; your typical business card info.

    Finally you get to check out what you've created! It's so cool! It even adds a QR code so people can scan it with their Smartphones and get your info instantly!

    Here are some tips before you do what I did and just dive in make your cards and place your order. Check out the top of the site. The "Personal" tab will give you an idea of what your card will look like and what you can add. If you scroll down the page, you'll find a link to check out some of the members. What I like about checking out the other members is seeing the cards finished and seeing how fun and creative people can be.

    If you want to break out of the boring, same ol' routine of handing out "blah" business cards, Meet-Meme is going to change all of that for you! Go check 'em out. You know you want to! Make sure to follow them on Twitter and Facebook to keep up with all the happenings!

    I was given a code for free cards, but they had no idea I was going to do a post. The opinion expressed is completely my own and was in no way influenced by the company.
