Wordless Wednesday

My new birthday outfits.

 Had to include this one.  She got a hold of my camera while I was in the other room.  She took about 20 pictures of her feet and then this one.

Random Pictures

First picture is the sun setting in the clouds (over a corn field).  Hard to get clear pictures when you are cruising down the highway.

The next pictures are of the ice-jam from the melt that we had and of the flats where there isn't suppose to be a small lake, lol.

Thank you everyone for entering.  This was my most successful giveaway yet.  Lots of entries.  Please keep following as there are more coming soon.

I am proud to be a CSN Stores Preferred Blogger!! What does that mean?  It means that I have the opportunity to do product reviews of the items that any of their 200+ stores carry and it also means that I have the opportunity, thanks to CSN Stores, to give away gift codes to their stores, to my readers.

Have you checked out the many CSN Stores lately? As mentioned, there are well over 200 of them.  When I tell you they have pretty much everything, I mean it.  It is one-stop shopping without having to leave the warmth of your home.  Why go to the mall and fight for a parking spot, get out of your vehicle in the cold and snow when you can just do a few clicks and you have what you need.  I can tell you from personal experience that they are quick and very reasonable on shipping.  I actually had my item upgraded to just about overnight shipping for free.  I couldn't believe how fast it arrived. 

I also have the opportunity to check out a new site that CSN Stores just launched.  This online store is named Joss & Main and offers items at up to 70% off the retail price.  What is the catch you say? No real catch, just that the sales only last 72 hours so you have to be quick.

If you would like to check them out, please feel free to use my link to join up.  I would appreciate it.  You will love the deals.  I'm new to the site as well and have been checking things out. 

Now, this is one of my favorite things to do ~ A GIVEAWAY FOR MY READERS.

Springtime and outdoor fun

Do you believe that we are already into March?!?  Do you know what that means?!? Yes, spring is right around the corner.  Of course, it has come in like a lamb so it will probably go out like a lion and we will get more snow, but never fear it will be here soon enough.

One of my "goals" this spring is to scope out some backyard swing sets for my little girl to play on and make a purchase.  We went to the park last year a couple of times and she really enjoyed a few of the rides, and now that she is older I'm sure she would love having one right in her own backyard to play on whenever she wanted to during the day.

I can  picture her sitting on a teeter totter with her father on the other end and she's tying to get him off the ground.  I can hear her giggling as she is sliding down the slide.  I want her to have the same enjoyment that I did as a youngster with my own swing set. There is a story about mine, and how it ended up on the roof of a  mom and pop store in our town, thanks to Mom and her friends, but that is a blog post for another time.

Like I said, spring is almost here, and it is my favorite time of year, right behind fall. It is almost time to get outside and stretch out and brush off the cobwebs of cabin fever.  There is nothing that makes you say good-bye to cabin fever then going outside, hearing the robins chirping and taking a nice deep breath of the clean air. I can't wait till we can open up the windows, let the clean air blow on through, and of course get a very ambitious toddler outside playing. Or, after putting the little one down for the night hubby and I grabbing a blanket and heading outside and watching for falling stars.

What do you do in the spring to shake the cabin fever cobwebs off?

We won't mention that with spring you have the springtime outdoor fun, but you also have the dreaded spring cleaning as well.
