Blogging is a Bit Like High School!

Remember high school? I certainly do! I remember the cliques.. the rich kids, the snotty girls, the band group, the choir groups, the jocks, the druggies (oh yeah, they had their own clique, too), and so on. Anyways, blogging is pretty similar to high school [...]

We Only Get One Chance

while I was laying on the long hospital bed and not allowed to move (or breathe) while getting my CAT scan done I realized something. That if I was to die today or any time soon.. I'm not the person I want to be and I'm not the person I want my kids to remember me being. I've become so tired the past couple of years that I've turned into a "no" mom. You know the type? Everything is "no" because it's [...]

Betty Crocker "You're A Star!" Cupcakes

Tyler also has a favorite cupcake recipe- the You're a Star Cupcakes from Betty Crocker. I love these! They're so cute and they look really easy to make. I never thought to make little stars like that and use them as a cupcake topper but they're adorable and make them look so unique[...]

Small Talk Six: When Nobody is watching..

This is a new Meme from momdot.com, each week is a new topic that can be answered in 6 words, sentences, videos, or pictures. This week is the 6 songs you just can't help but dance to when nobody is watching. When nobody is looking, I can't help but dance to these 6 songs:

This is the one that kills my husband... so maybe I'm a little nerdy.. what can I say? I like to listen to this one while I'm washing dishes and cleaning up the kitchen.

What 6 songs can you just not help but dance to when nobody is watching you?

Come Twitter With Me!

So, What are you doing? That's the question I see daily every time I log into twitter. I still can't believe I've posted 728 updates in just the past few months but twitter is somewhat addicting. For you other bloggers and business owners out there, Twitter is THE place to be and can also bring a lot of traffic to your website. Do you have a new post up on your blog? Tweet it. Do you have a great new product you just listed on your site? Tweet about it! Twitter is the coolest marketing site out there. If you're not yet signed up with twitter I highly suggest you do so.

Not only is Twitter an amazing marketing tool, it's also a fun place to hang out. You can find plenty of twitter parties going on all the time. My personal favorite is Girl's Night Out (also known as GNO). It's a weekly twitter party held on Tuesday nights where you'll find lots of ideas and information on different subjects, maybe win some cool prizes, and make some great new friends. Tonight I'll be joining Girl's Night Out for "GNO gets financially fit." They'll be discussing budgeting, how to live frugally, coupons, and ways to save. I hope to see you there tonight! You'll need to visit Mom It Forward in order to sign up for tonight's GNO.

You can find me on twitter at http://www.twitter.com/cheeriokeeper.
