About the Book:

Feeling pressure to do everything “right” and raise up “good” children, it’s easy to lose sight of our ultimate purpose as parents in the quest for practical tips and guaranteed formulas.

Tempting Tristan (A sexy standalone M/M romance) (Harborside Nights) - Book Review/Giveaway


New Release........
Tempting Tristan is a stand-alone M/M romance featuring two sexy, lovable alphas from the Harborside Nights series.

Fresh off the heels of yet another bad relationship, Tristan Brewer is taking a break from men to try and figure out where he keeps going wrong. He knows his biggest fault—he leads with his heart, not his head—and that’s never going to change. But after several introspective weeks, he’s beginning to get a handle on things. That is, until badass heartthrob Alex Wells walks into his bar...

Alex has spent eight years in the Army, months in a hospital bed, and far too long hiding his sexual identity. He’s guilt-ridden, damaged, pissed off, and up for a Silver Star—for the incident that nearly cost him his life, and kept him from his grandmother’s funeral. But all he wants to do is forget his stint with the institution that allows but doesn’t necessarily accept, and live the life he’s always dreamed of.

Butterfly Pavilion Bug a Boo Event 2016 Was so Fun!


*Disclosure: I was provided complimentary tickets in exchange for a review. These are my opinions and experiences only yours may differ.*

My family had a blast at the event on Sunday. It ran October 15 and 16 so it is not over but you can plan for next year. There was so much to so we ended up being there a few hours and even ate lunch there. 

This guy is awesome and one of my favorite parts of the pavilion. Another favorite part is the butterflies. I got some good pictures of them and am posting below. 

Zink Wireless Printer Review


*Disclosure: I did receive a complimentary sample in exchange for my honest unbiased review. These are my opinions and experiences and yours may differ.*

I have always been a planner but recently discovered I could decorate my planner and make it beautiful. I am a paper crafts person and love to get creative through paper crafts. This Zink printer is an inkless wireless printer. You download an app to your phone or tablet and you can print out some awesome stuff. 

The printer was very easy to setup and get ready to use with my phone. I have an iPhone 6S Plus and the app installed and works well on my phone. All I had to do to connect was follow the instructions on the app and that came with the printer. 

As a planner person I decided to make my very own washi tape. I use it to decorate my planner. The app has a lot of Halloween character to choose from. Below is what I came up with. 

It takes a minute for it to print but it was well worth the wait. It prints an item that is about 3 inches long. I can and plan to buy paper that is wider so I can make some labels for my kitchen. 

Here is my planner with the new tape in it. I printed two to cover the area I wanted to. 

There are many uses you could get out of this printer. From labels to my washi tape and many more I just can't think of right now. I can't wait to get my hands on the 2" print paper! I will get a lot of use out of this.
