I’ve many times written of how much I enjoy the food choices available from HoneyBaked Ham.  Whether it’s Christmas Eve or Easter dinner, it’s just not a meal without a spiral-cut HoneyBaked Ham.

This Easter will be no different.  I actually just called today to reserve a ham to be picked up on Saturday.  I was told you don’t even need to reserve one, as they have plenty.  So if you’re still on the fence about what to serve, know that you can call them up or even just stop in between now and Saturday and you’ll be able to serve your guests a mouthwatering ham with that signature glaze!

HoneyBaked Turkey Breast from HoneyBaked Ham #HoneyBakedEaster

Back when I was studying the HoneyBaked Ham catering menu for our Big Game party I happened to notice that in addition to ham, you could also buy HoneyBaked Turkey.  They have turkey breasts year-round, and whole turkeys are available seasonally.  So the other day when we were trying to decide what to do for dinner, I suggested that we give one of the turkey breasts from our local Louisville HoneyBaked Ham Cafe a try.

I love to watch Bubbles’ creativeness grow as she does.  Her playtime has gotten more complex, as have her building skills.  It’s fun to see the structures she puts together, and then to see the stories she creates around them.

Blocks are some of her favorite, and we spend a lot of time building with them.  So when we recently had the opportunity to review the new Mega Bloks American Builders Jeep Off-Road Adventure set, I was excited to see what she would think about it.  Blocks plus trucks would equal lots of fun for her, I was sure.

I’m not exactly a stranger to wildlife.  Growing up I saw bears and moose on my porch, heard wolves and coyotes howling through the night, and I’ve even had a deer hit my car.  Yes, you read that correctly: a deer jumped out of the ditch and bounced off the side of my car.

What’s a little new to me is the aggressiveness and possessiveness of a generally docile creature: a bird.  And I don’t mean seagulls, which can be very aggressive, or even predatory birds like a hawk.  Just your general run-0f-the-mill small bird, like a robin.


Last year my husband came back in the house and announced that a bird had taken a diving swoop at his head as he tried to enter the garage.  I’ve seen birds fly into doors and cars before, so I just assumed it was disoriented, so we kind of laughed it off. Continue reading »

I’m sure that most people think about layaway only around holidays like Christmas.  But Kmart Layaway is actually available year-round.  Whether’s it’s for birthday gifts, graduation presents, or even just to help spread out the cost of a room redo, you can take advantage of it either online or in stores.
