Nichole Nordeman Every Mile Mattered

Music is the way to my heart. For me, music is for when you are sad, happy, angry, hyper etc. It can pull me out of or into any mood I seek. Every genre brings something beautiful.


Miss Nordeman has an amazing ability to tell a story with her voice. Every emotion you are suppose to feel, you do, because you can feel it in her. I have to admit there were a few times, I cried like a baby while listening.

This is my first time hearing her, and I am hooked. I find myself going back to the words she said long after I shut off the cd. I love to feel and she definitely delivers.


You really need to go and check out her stuff on Amazon. You can stream this cd through Amazon Prime, download the MP3 version, or you can buy the cd version. Nichole Nordeman on Amazon

This cd is definitely worth the view. It has really opened more heart to more possibilities in life and helps me to see that there is a light at the end of this long tunnel my family has been on.

Zoganic FruitZip

As many of you know, I have had some medical problems for around the last 10 years. I get sick easily and I can pretty much tell when I am going to get sick.


I use to be inside almost 24/7, never going out, I was just in too much pain. Now when I do go out, my immune system isn't as good as it use to be, so I have to be prepared for everything. Including bringing an umbrella if there is the slightest amount of rain.


The Zognac brand may be able to help me with that. They have a variety of flavors, and they all do something else for you. Coconut=Energy, Pineapple=Digestion, Orange=Immunity and Multiberry+Refreshment (a catch all for everything in one drink packet)


Now, I have been trying everything to be able to go out and have fun and not have sick. I was actually able to do that the other day. My day was great out in the woods and it even rained and I felt safe with Zoganic.


I had my orange drink and then enjoyed a day at the county fair. The wind was blowing, moisture in the air, and I didn't even have the slightest sign of a runny nose. The next day, I felt fine.


One thing I will say, the taste is horrible. I'm not sure if it is just because I am not a fan of orange drinks or if it really is that bad. BUT, there isn't much to drink so tilt back and drink it up.


Obviously after one packet, I really have no idea exactly how this will or will not work for me. I did get a feel for the taste and it didn't make me sick at all. You have to check this out. www.Zoganic.com/Digestion

Blogger Life

Growing up, I probably said I wanted to be a lot of things. I can't remember what they were though and that was long before I started my "my body hates me" life. The one thing I can remember...an author.


For years, I have wanted to write a book. Something everyone could read and hopefully love. Since then I have actually started a book, until then, blogging makes me happy.

Just to be able to write things that you guys come to read, makes my life complete. No matter what else I am going through, blogging gets me through it.


I know I haven't been consistent lately and that will end. I am going to try and get on here daily and give you guys the stories and reviews that you want to read.

My life is great blogger wise at the moment, I am getting in to some amazing products and I can't wait to spend the next five years, growing with all of you!


If you have any stories you want to see, please head on down to the comments and let me know. Also, I am always looking for help, so please come join me. Thanks for reading everyone!

How to make a pouch out of your cut up jeans.

Anytime I see something that would normally be thrown out, I make sure I can't do anything with it. Including empty boxes, like the Packet holder and the Chip clip holder.


My husband ripped his pants riding his bicycle and ended up cutting them off into shorts. On the way to the trash can I decided that I needed to make something with them.


It was still in a cylinder, so I just turned them inside out and started sewing up the one end. When I was done, I simply flipped it back out.


You are left with a pouch, or you could make your own strap and flap out of the other pieces of the pants and make a purse. You could also sew it so it will fit around a planter and many other things.


The one other special thing I thought about Was using the pants of someone who passed, and making a pillow, or any of the above out of it, by simply sewing both ends after putting stuffing inside.





I love simple. If you have anything you made yourself, leave it below so I can try too. Thanks for reading everyone. Have a great one!

Sarcastic Jesus Adult Coloring Book

I have reviewed many different adult coloring books, and this one is my favorite. No, it isn't the longest, or even the most detailed, but it has fun... and I love fun.


As soon as you open this book, you will want to start coloring. But you have to flip all the way through first. If not to read them all first, but simply to find your favorite one. I really like, I'm sorry, I thought you knew you are a gossipy bitch, and Answer your prayers? Like I aint got better shit to do.


The designs are simple and easy to color, some easier than others, as with all books. Plus the face changes, it isn't always the same face in every picture, which is awesome.


It is obvious that many people won't get this, or they just won't like it and to you, I say, I'm very sorry you feel that way. Please be on the lookout for the next post. :)



You can check it out on Amazon!

Through The Rug 2 Book Review

When I heard about Through The Rug, I had no idea what it was. I suppose my kids and I both missed it somehow. All I knew, was I had to read this iconic book. Then when I got the chance to read the second one with my kids..I jumped at it and applied right away. Luckily I got in and now I get to tell you all about it!



Through The Rug 2 is more of the fun you get in the first one. Again the dog catcher is back, and again, they land back in Wishville. This time the dad and son is there, but doesn't believe what he saw and goes home.

Once they get to Wishville, they find out about something disturbing happening in Emma's home and soon they come face to face with it.


You would think that would be it right? There couldn't possibly be more...but there is. I won't tell you who it is, but there is a wedding and Grandma Emma and Alyssa almost miss it.

Through the Rug 2 is fun from start to finish. We get to explore more characters and those characters get to explore Wishville as well.



My kids and I all love this book. It is written in a way that is easy for them to understand and easy for adults to stay interested. Plus the few pictures, made for a fun break in reading to the kids.

Make sure you get these books for your kids. The whole family can enjoy them and they really do get the imagination going for hours after!



Check it out here. Read about it, see the other reviews, and hopefully order a copy for your home.

How to clean your wax melter.

We are a family of many smells. My husband has a stinky job, there are stinky feet, stinky trash, and sometime stinky drains.


It is safe to say that we use our wax melt a lot. I usually turn it on a few times a day, just to get the smell circulating. Our neighbors have said they can smell in at their vehicles.


Our problem, and I don't know if it is the wax or the wax melter itself, but the wax tends to burn and leaves nasty brown marks on the container.


Once that happens, it never smells the same. I scrubbed and scrubbed but had no idea how to get iit off of there. Then one day my husband cleaned it in front of me and I ealized how easy it really is.


All you need is a rag and some alcohol. Just put a small amount on a rag or napkin and pour a small bit into the container. After it sits for a second, you can literally wipe the burnt right off making your wax melt container look brand new.



Alcohol is something we all seem to have in our homes, and pretty cheap. If you have a wax melter, make sure that you keep some on hand!

If you know how to keep the wax from burning, please let me know in the comments below. It doesn't happen often, but it is rather annoying! Thanks for reading guys and gals.

Natrogix Pill Organizer

Once you get older or have health problems like me, you may be on a lot of medicine. I hate pills, so I'm always forgetting to take mine.


This handy pill organizer, helps me to remember for a week. Most of the organizers that I have reviewed, were only one week doses at a time. but this one has seperate containers for AM and PM.


I feel like this thing is perfect for peoplr like me who don't want to remember, people who can't remember, and for care givers, who may not be in charge of the medicine. Everyone can help you remember to take your pills when you put them in this awesome container.

Everyday is color coded and they come apart so if you go out for the day or maybe on a vacation, you just slide apart the ones you need and leave the rest, or you can keep them together all the time.


Even with my arthritis, I am ale to open and close these lips with no problem. They close tight and I am not worried about any pills falling out at home or on the go. Plus the whole thing seems to be made well and pretty hard to break if you aren't trying.


Head on over to Amazon and check out this organizer, and add a little order to your life. You deserve it!

Unconvential Uses for Washime Craft Tape

As a teenager, my style was mostly black and t shirts. Only in the last 9 years, did I start to put in more color into my outfits, and my life. Now I enjoy it everywhere!


This set is great. You get 20 different styles, some are similar but different coloring. Plus it tears easily and holds up very well. It is so much fun to add a splash of color, that you can remove weeks later.


If you have been following me for awhile, you know that I like to review things in a different way then they should be or for different reasons. This is presented as craft tape, so you think paper usage. Well that is my first thought anyway. Today we are going way beyond paper!


The first thing I splashed with color, is a chip clip box, I made up to hold the chip clips. It is a simple "craft". All you need is an empty food box, tape, and scissors. Decorate it anyway you want. The tape stayed well on the cardboard.


My next project, was the cup holders on the couch. (Don't ask it is a long story) and we both picked different colors. The tape went on nice and smooth and was easy to place and replace when need be. On all these projects, you will need to do a double layer on all the tape.





After that, I went into the bathroom and made a strip around my mirror, a strip on the cabinets, and "Love" on the mirror. These have stayed up against a lot of steam filled showers so far and none of them have peeled or come off so far.





The last thing I did, was a bit of a surprise. Our glass ashtray roke in half, so I used the tape on the bottom half, to keep it together. You can still see our initials on the bottom. Plus it mixed it up so we weren't looking at the same old ashtray.




I had a lot of fun trying out this tape and the splashes of color around the house are so much fun.

I believe this is great quality tape and I wish I could put tape on nearly everything in here. Ok, so I wouldn't go that far, ut I am having a great time and everyone seems to love the tape and the new additions.

If this tape will work on all of these surfaces, it should work on whatever surface you are using it for it. Head on over to Amazon, get some Washime tape and add some color into your life!
