Share Your Pins & Party With Us! #PinIt Pin Party!

Welcome to another awesome week of fun! We all love Pinterest – whether it’s finding cool inspiration, learning new things, or as bloggers – getting fab new traffic! – it’s one of the best ideas the web has ever concocted. :) I myself have had two posts go viral now on Pinterest – 10 Ways to Make Money from Home, and 10 Ways to Save on Baby Essentials. {Clearly, I should write more “10 best” type posts, since people love them, lol.} So – if you’re a pin-a-holic too, be sure to link up your favorite post this week. I have been sick – but do my best to share and repin every one of your posts. AND – they go up on several other sites too. Fun, right?

7 Winter Soup Recipes

Here where I live, in Central Washington – {Yakima, Washington to be exact} – we normally have loads of snow each year. This year? Nothing. While it seems like everyone else in the country is being overloaded with snow, we’ve had one powdered-sugar style dusting. So weird. And totally disappointing to me, since I love snow. But, it’s still pretty cold. And when it’s cold, I totally get in the mood for soup! If you’re a winter soup lover too, then you’ll love this collection of awesome winter soup recipes!

Tortellini Soup

This Tortellini Soup is one of my very favorites. So, I’ll share that recipe, plus a bunch of my other favorites, in the list below. Then you’ll have a ton of awesome soup ideas for the next month, until we warm up for summer :)

7 Winter Soup Recipes 

Are you hungry yet? I am :) You can add french bread, toasty garlic rounds like I share in the first recipe, the one shown in the pic above – or some homemade cornbread, to make it a meal. {I’m a carb-lover, so I always need some type of bread at each meal!}

Chosen Chix

Want more Winter inspiration? Well, I’m not the only one sharing seven things about winter! Check out my fellow Chosen Chix and some of their thoughts on winter:

How to Raise a Fancy Cat

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group®, Litter Genie® and Fancy Feast®, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #Catparents http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV.

When I used to work in retail, the younger girls made fun of me. They said that because I was near 30, no kids yet, not married, and owned a stray cat I’d adopted, that I’d end up being an old crazy cat lady. This was at The Buckle, where they make a sort of “account” for you when you shop. So that later, when you come back, we can tell you exactly what size and style of jeans you bought last time, that sort of thing. Well, a year after I stopped working there, and was shopping, and my friends weren’t there anymore, the person ringing me up started laughing. He didn’t want to tell me, so I looked at the screen, and under my name, for info, it said, “Crazy cat lady.” Well played my friends, well played <3

At the time, it seemed a likely future for me. But then that stray cat was lost, I moved, I had a baby, and bought a house. Getting out of crazy cat lady territory. And then….  this last Christmas eve, my Mister brought home a surprise kitten for Abby’s Christmas present, and I became a cat lady once again….

It’s the Vtech Safe&Sound® Pan & Tilt Full Color Video Monitor. Many of us think about a monitor like this as a “baby monitor,” that we’d only use for our infants. But this is SO much more than that, and can totally give you peace of mind, all the way through the preschool years, and more. Check it out:

This is the coolest thing I’ve seen in quite awhile. And after working with Best Buy as a Blogging Ambassador the past few years, you know I’ve seen a LOT of cool technology, right? But this is something that really is life changing, as cheesy as that sounds. I’ll give you some info on it here, let you know how you can WIN one today {WOO HOO!} and then tomorrow I’ll be following up with a post showing you how I use it daily to make my mom life SO much easier, and keep my little one safer – and ideas on how you can use it in your daily life too! :) [Read more…]
