Thank you #Tryazon for partnering with me on this blog post! Have Some Fun With Drop It!#Kosmosgames #TryazonI got the Drop It game from #Tryazon and #Kosmogames and couldn’t wait to play it.

Things That Bring Back Memories – “Life Goes On” #MondayMemories 1

For this week’s “Things That Bring Back Memories” post, I am going to pick something in the topic of “TELEVISION” and go with ” Life Goes On “.  This was a series that really broke ground on getting people to understand that those with disabilities were just as “normal” as they were. Have a television series focus on being able to live life fully and not be told […]

Make a Road Trip Activity Case #TigerStrypesBlog If you have a child, like I do, you know of the times when you just have to even travel around town and get the classic “are we there yet?” question.  Well, for us living in the mountains, most of our road trips take a lot longer, and I even find myself asking that question once in awhile.  […]

Sweet Rainbow Treats for St. Patrick’s Day or Easter #TigerStrypesBlog I haven’t posted a craft in some time…probably because I haven’t had much time.  How about you?  I saw something like this on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to make something like it that could be used for both St. Patrick’s Day and/or Easter.  They seem to be a bit close to each other […]

TTBBM – Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown #MondayMemories 18

For this week’s “Things That Bring Back Memories” post, I am going to pick something in the topic of “TELEVISION” and go with “Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown.”  Since Valentine’s Day is on Wednesday, this show fits perfectly for today! This television show originally aired  January 28, 1975, and then on the ABC network on February 14, 2002.  It’s a lot newer than most of […]
