Our new adventure in Iowa

I think you all are aware that we sold our house in Wisconsin and moved this week to Iowa where my husband is the new head pastor of a church here.  It is a fun new adventure but this mom is exhausted and ready for a nice day of rest.  

Here are a couple pictures to showcase our new town.  

We live in the same town as American Pickers, how cool is that!  :)

This is the view from my deck!  Good morning sun and hello Mississippi River!  Or should I say Mississippi's river like my daughter says.  ;)

I hope to show you more pictures once we get more settled.  It has been a lot more work then just unpacking as we are still doing some home improvements on the house. 

My kids are adjusting well but my dog is being a big baby.  She is so confused and is showing some signs of depression.  Time for a long walk for her and some doggy treats.  

I am of to catch some zzz's.   I also have two job interviews on Monday so keep me in your prayers.  I am eager to find out the plans that God has in store for me and my family here in Iowa.  :) 

God bless you!

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
