This post brought to you by No nonsense. All opinions are 100% mine.
Fashion at my house is often very haphazard. My goals in life tend to be to keep my kids under control and to stay warm (especially on days like today where the high is still in the negatives). Recently I was given the chance to try out some No nonsense tights and leggings as an addition to my wardrobe and I am really enjoying them.
My favorite thing about tights and leggings is that I can wear them with outfits that would otherwise cause me to be very cold during the winter. In fact, I have been known to wear leggings under my pants simply to stay warm. My favorite way to wear them is with a dress however, it makes the walk to church on Sunday morning much more plesent.
When you're shopping to make the perfect outfit No nonsense tights and leggings are a great choice because they are very affordable and can be found at many food & drug and mass retailers. This means that they are a great choice for every girl and woman!
There are so many different ways that you can use No nonsense products to make a fashion statement. And now that Jill Martin, sportscaster and telivision personality, has partnered with No nonsense you can guarantee that No nonsense's new line of bright leggings and tights will be a big hit.
This is an excellent book set in the early 1800 is New Orleans. It's easy to tell from reading the book that Arlette is a New Orleans native because there is great depth about the customs and the city itself which made me feel as if I was really inside the story with the characters.
The story itself is about Andre, a Frenchman who in his childhood escaped the Revolution but not without loosing his parents. In his search for a new home, Andre decides to travel to the new world. While aboard the ship he makes a new friend, Charles, who encourages Andre to come to New Orleans and settle near him and his family.
Upon arrival in the new city Andre is very pleased with what he sees and does agree to make his home there. The story then becomes the tale of Andre as he strives to build his own plantation. We hear of his loves, loss and discovery of what family really is.
I loved this book! It was an excellent read and one that any romance or historical fiction readers won't want to miss. One of my favorite parts was that there was a good amount of French and I have enjoyed teaching my children some of the French phrases I learned in my high school French classes. It's been lots of fun!

From that point on we had lots of different foster cats. The two we finally ended up keeping were two out of a litter of four. They were super good with my small children and very cuddly.
Recently I have been reading Chicken Soup's I Can't Believe My Cat Did That! and I have to laugh at how many of these stories are similar to the funny cat stories of my life. You really can't go wrong with a feline friend as far as I'm concerned.

Family Vinyl Car Decals. Sometimes they are cute but then they start peeling (especially if you have a windshield wiper) and things get ugly pretty quick. When I was asked to review one I knew exactly what I'd do. I got one with turtles on it and put it on the side of my tub. It looks adorable and gives my bathroom a little bit of style, something my house is sorely lacking. If you're looking for an inexpensive addition to your bathroom try this simple idea yourself!
