  • Friday Find – BaByBliss Curl Machine
    by Sarah Kimmel on February 15, 2020 at 3:31 am

    I have never been able to do my hair. It’s just a fact, I’m not very good at being a “girl”. I’ve tried curling wands. Hair straighteners just confused me, my hair is already straight and I just couldn’t figure out how to make it curl. That is all in the past now. My sister

  • Teaching Your Kids About Phishing & Online Scams
    by Sarah Kimmel on February 12, 2020 at 2:13 pm

    I have a confession to make, although I’ve basically already said it a couple of times in different posts. Aside from my pregnancies, I currently weigh more than I have ever weighed in my life. I know that some people would still be thrilled to be the size I am (I’ve never had to go

    Facebook is about to change it up again, and I’m sure there will be the inevitable posts from people wanting it to go back to the way it was. Most of the time I LOVE when things get updated. I feel like it makes it more modern and I feel like I’ve got the latest
