I want to try this

This is the SodaStream Fountain Jet Soda Maker Starter Kit. How amazing would it be to be able to MAKE your own soda? With the exact amount of sweetness you wanted, the exact flavor you wanted at any time you wanted? Not only amazingly convenient but cost effective too! Everything from cola to diet to sparkling flavored waters...OH MY! I totally need this product!

I'm part of the BzzAgent program where I get to try products for FREE and then review them! I've been able to try some really amazing products! This product is a pretty popular one with agents and there are only a few spaces left in the test. I want to be chosen as a participant!!!

The Red Hatters

Our latest outing to Paris in a Cup was a splendid afternoon. The tea was delicious, the scones were the best I've ever eaten and the company was divine!

Four Years Old

The baby is 4. THE BABY IS 4! How is that possible?????? It just seems like yesterday when we were in this stage:

Now we are in this stage:

Josh, we love you so much. You are a special gift to us. Your smile lights up an entire room and your love for all things with wheels makes me smile. You will always be our "love bug", "kissing bandit", and "pockmorn" eater. We pray you continue to love Jesus and grow to know Him more each day! Happy Fourth Birthday!

Better late than never

First day of school. Doesn't seem like we've been in school for 2 weeks, but we have. The kids are adjusting very well to their new school. They are making friends and fitting right in! Zack was blessed with 2 friends in his class. One from preschool and one from church. Gabby didn't know anyone but that didn't stop her from making a new friend everyday for the first week of school. We are thankful for a smaller school and the homey feel it brings!

Josh is loving being at preschool. He likes his class and his teacher. He's so glad he can finally go to "Bubba's skool"

My Favorite Pizza Sauce

You're probably saying, "What brand is that? I've never even heard of it!". Well, that's because it's from PA. It's the brand my grandmother and mother always used. Once we moved to CA, it became a very fond but distant memory. Everytime we'd go visit my grandma, there would be jars and jars of this sauce in her cupboards. Although, now that I think about it, it was in a can. She'd whip up a pizza in a jiffy, much to everyone's delight.

So, you're asking, "How on earth did you find your grandmother's pizza sauce in CA?" Well, thanks for asking!

I was browsing through my local Big Lots in the canned goods aisle and low and behold, there on the shelf were 2 jars of this sauce. I was shocked. I picked them up to see that they were marked $1. Yes, $1. Did they not know what treasure they had? I got down so I could be eye-level with the shelf to see if there were more jars hiding behind other canned goods. Much to my dismay, there were none.

I grabbed the 2 on the shelf and left the store with giddy delight!

Delgrosso was the sauce my grandmother used, my mother used and if I could get my hands on it here in CA, I'd use it too.

It's made in Tipton, PA. Very close to my birthplace. I spent many a summer at Bland's Park (which they owned), where I spent my grandmother's money for rides on the Tilt-A-Whirl.

Seeing that jar of pizza sauce took me back to a simple time that I miss dearly!

Thank you DelGrosso for selling your pizza sauce at Big Lots in CA. I hope to see more of your family of products there (and at any other store locally for that matter!)
