Why Do Women Gain Weight?

With time, women gain weight because we accumulate so much information and wisdom in our heads that when there is no more room, it distributes out to the rest of our bodies. So we aren't heavy, we are enormously cultured, educated and happy. Beginning today, when I look at my butt in the mirror I will think, Good Grief, look how smart I am! Must be where "Smart Ass" came from!

I came across this little tidbit and thought I would share. :)

Camp Club Girls ~ McKenzie's Montana Mystery Book Review

McKenzie's Montana Mystery (Camp Club Girls)

Title: McKenzie's Montana Mystery
SubTitle: Camp Club Girls Book 3
Publisher: Barbour Publishing, Inc.
Publish Date: 3-1-2010
Category: FICTION - JUVENILE: Mystery & Detective Stories, Law & Crime

About the book:

When Bailey and McKenzie arrive to help at a horse ranch in Montana, they’re immediately entrenched in mysteries: a horse disappearing into thin air, spookiness in an abandoned western town, and ranch hand upheaval. And with all the unexpected action going on, how will they ever find time to prepare for their rodeo competitions? Can the Camp Club Girls successfully combine their skills to help Bailey and McKenzie save the ranch…and the rodeo for Sunshine Stables?

About Camp Club Girls:

Camp Club Girls is a series of 24 books that is geared to girls ages 8 to 12 years of age. They will enjoy mystery, mayhem and adventure found in this series. Each of the books focuses on one girl, even though the other girls are involved in each story and they each have special skills like, analyzing, spiritual insight, gadgetry, physical strength and research, that they use to help the whole group of girls solve mysteries.

Camp Club Girls also offers reader contests over on their
website, so be sure to check it out too.

What I thought about the book:

This is the third book in the series and I have read all three. Even though these are geared towards girls ages 8 to 12, I find them interesting. This book is a really fast read for me with it only having 160 pages. McKenzie's is a very intelligent young girl who really doesn't let much get by her. In this book they are at a horse ranch to help out with a kids camp and they are also there to practice for a rodeo, calf roping, a Junior Miss Rodeo Queen and when they get to camp they find out that the famous horse, Diamond Girl has come up missing. This really disturbs McKenzie and Bailey and they won't give up until the figure out what happened to her. I think these are really wonderful books for tweens and highly recommend them.

The Gunsmith's Gallantry (Ladies Shooting Club Book 2) ~ Book Review

The Gunsmith's Gallantry (Ladies' Shooting Club)

Title: The Gunsmith's Gallantry
Subtitle: Ladies Shooting Club (Book Two)
Author: Susan Paige Davis
Publisher: Barbour Publishing, Inc
Publish Date: 6-1-2010

About the book:

Can the shy gunsmith and the widowed storekeeper find love when everything around them is in an uproar? Hiram Dooley has problems—women problems! His sister’s about to leave him to get married (if Sheriff Ethan Chapman ever proposes); his sister-in-law, Rose, thinks Hiram should marry her, since they’re both widowed; and the woman he truly loves, Libby Adams, is blind to his regard. The schoolmarm has a different problem—a man claiming to be her uncle came to Fergus. . .and then disappeared. Did her father kill him? Can the Ladies’ Shooting Club once again ride to the rescue?

What I thought about the book:

This is an interesting book about Gert, well I guess I should call her Trudy now since that is what she is going by now. Trudy is not very happy when her and Hiram find out that Hiram's sister-in-law, Rose, is coming to town. Rose is truly a character in her own little world. Trudy continues to work with the women of the Ladies Shooting Club with the shooting and the club continues to grow, even though Rose passes on being apart of all that.

Things in town change especially for Bitsy Shepard and her salon and also for Isabel Fennel when her father, Cyrus finds himself in a bit of trouble. But, once again The Ladies Shooting Club helps out Ethan with his duties as a law officer.

I really enjoyed this book as much as I did the first one in the Series. You can read my review of The Sheriff's Surrender (Ladies Shooting Club Book One) here. You don't want to miss this series, you will love it, I am sure.

Audio Book Challenge: I Alex Cross & The Unnamed ~ Book Reviews

While I was over visiting At Home With Books, I came across a post where Alyce is joining this Audio Book Challenge, over at Royal Reviews and I thought why don't I do that. I love to listen to audio books when I go to bed, when I am waiting at the bus stop for the kids and when I am just driving around.

The 5th book I listened to was Alex Cross's Trial by James Patterson.

I, Alex Cross By James Patterson

About the book:

Alex Cross's niece is found brutally murdered. Overcome with grief, Alex vows to take down her killer before he strikes again. But shortly after he begins the investigation, Alex discovers that his niece had gotten mixed up with some very important, very dangerous people. And she's not the only one who has disappeared.

The hunt for the murderer leads Alex and his girlfriend, Detective Brianna Stone, to Washington's most infamous club--a place where every fantasy is possible, if you have the credentials to get in. The killer could be one of their patrons, one of Washington's elite who will do anything to keep their secrets buried.

With astonishing plot twists and electrifying revelations that will keep readers on the edge of their seat, I Am Alex Cross is James Patterson's most suspenseful Alex Cross novel yet.

Now what I think about the book:

Now, this book was set way way back when the blacks were still getting hanged. This book sent some chills down my spine but I loved it. There was always a lot of action. And not always action that I wanted to hear about but I have to admit that the action kept me listening. I did however wonder who Alex Cross was. I didn't find out until after I listened this book that there is a whole series of books by James Patterson with the character Alex Cross.

I do recommend this book even though some of the things disturbed me but it was a great book anyway.

Now, the 6th book I have listened to for my challenge was The Unnamed by Joshua Ferris

The Unnamed (Unabridged) By Joshua Ferris

About the book:

Joshua Ferris' debut novel Then We Came to the End was both heralded by critics and a New York Times best seller, and marked the arrival of a startlingly talented young writer. With The Unnamed, Ferris imagines the collision between one man's free will and the forces of nature that are bigger than any of us.

Tim Farnsworth walks. He walks out of meetings and out of bed. He walks in sweltering heat and numbing cold. He will walk without stopping until he falls asleep, wherever he is. This curious affliction has baffled medical experts around the globe - and comes perilously close to ruining what should be a happy life. Tim has a loving family, a successful law career and a beautiful suburban home, all of which he maintains spectacularly well until his feet start moving again.

What drives a man to stay in a marriage, in a job? What forces him away? Is love or conscience enough to overcome the darker, stronger urges of the natural world? The Unnamed is a deeply felt, luminous novel about modern life, ancient yearnings, and the power of human understanding.

What I thought about the book:

Oh, where shall I begin. This is definitely a book that you cannot miss any pieces. And with the way I sometimes have to listen to books little bits at a time, it is easy to miss what is going on. I enjoyed the book but when I was all finished, I just didn't get it.

Other books I have completed in this Audio Book Challenge:


Thinking Of Starting A NEW Business?? Check This Out!

As most of you who follow me should know that I am small business owner. I own a Home Daycare and I have been in business since October 1992. Now, it was not too difficult for me to get started because we had a spare room in my home and our daughter was little so we has the space for a toy room and the toys to fill it with. Since then we have converted our 2 car garage into a Daycare room with it's own bathroom. That is the best thing that we have ever done, well except that now Hubby doesn't have a garage for his tools and such, but we make due.

Well, I was told about this really neat contest for women who are wanting to start their own business. It's called the:

Get a FREE Kids Book At Borders

As you know, I am a home daycare provider and I have been trying to find somethings for the older kiddos to be involved with this summer and while I was going through my Google Reader trying to do some catching up I came across this great idea over at Mummy Deals.

This is a wonderful thing for the older kiddos. Now I just have to find out where the nearest Borders, Borders Express or Waldenbooks is to me. They recently closed the Waldenbooks near me.

I was thinking that I would get the older kiddos signed up and then give them a deadline and if they read the 10 books then I will take them to Borders for them to pick their FREE book. Now they only have a select few that they get to choose their FREE book from but it is an incentive.

Now, off to print some Double Dare Dog forms for the kiddos to complete.

Lexi is a "NEW HERO"

Jen, Lexi's mom mentioned this on her Caring Bridge journal update so I thought I would see what I could find out about it, so here it is, the video and article from NBC4

Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation.

The kids manning the lemonade stand may not be shouting at passing cars or at the people on the sidewalk. But you can't miss them. They hold their signs high and they just exude enthusiasm. Their smiles are like magnets, pulling you toward their table.

They're first graders from the Ohio School for the Deaf. The lemonade stand started last year as a volunteer project for OSD's upperclassmen but the younger students wanted to get involved, too.

This year, they're raising money for pediatric cancer and, specifically, for a friend who's in the middle of a year-long battle with neuroblastoma, an aggressive form of childhood cancer.

Seven-year-old Alexis Howard has endured six rounds of chemotherapy, radiation treatments, a painful transplant using her own stem cells and is even part of a research study. She's a fighter.

Alexis' dad, Scot Howard, says neuroblastoma is often misdiagnosed because it produces symptoms similar to other ailments. Alexis' tumor was discovered during an x-ray. Before it was detected, it had grown so large that it fractured several bones in her spine. Doctors started her cancer treatment immediately.

"It's just been amazing how fast people have come together and just helped and want to help. People you don't even know. I just can't say enough about that," Scot says, getting a little emotional.

"Some of the bills are $30,000 for this and $10,000 for that, y'know," he says. The medical bills are a strain on the family budget but they're getting by thanks, in part, to the support and generosity of people like these.

The students from OSD raised more than $1700 last year. They are hoping to raise even more this year.

The OSD students will be at their lemonade stand through Friday, May 7, 11:45am - 1:15pm, on the sidewalk in front of Panera Bread, 4519 North High Street in Clintonville.

Lexi Update: 2nd Rounds of Antibody Infusions

I thought I would share some pictures of Lexi that I have taken over the past few years. She is such a beautiful little girl.

This is the journal entry that Lexi's mom posted today on their Caring Bridge site:

Monday, May 17, 2010 11:11 PM, EDT

Hi Everyone! I have so much to write about. I admitted Alexis back into the hospital today for another scheduled treatment. This is her second round out of six for the Antibody therapy. For this round, Alexis will be discharged on Friday but then unfortunantly she has to be re-admitted on Monday for another 5 day stay. This week shouldn't be too bad, but next week she is going to receive the drug that she had the first round (the one that causes bone pain) and a higher dose of the drug she is getting this week. This week's drug is a 24 hour infusion for 4 days so the hospital stay wasn't an option.

Today has been a strange day, but so far Alexis's side effects haven't been too bad. The nurse practitione
r was held up today so despite our 9:30am admitting time, Alexis's infusion didn't start until 1:40pm. It was funny because the only time until bed that she felt nauseated was before the infusion even started! Over all today has been a great day for Alexis. At lunch, she refused the hospital food but when I gave her some leftovers I brought from home she gobbled it up. She also ate dinner very well-even though it was a strange combo: Fried rice with soy sauce, a fortune cookie with strawberry yogurt and m&m cookies. We do our best to get her to eat anything! She has also been in a great silly mood off and on today. She was dancing silly in the hall, wrote "Alexis is a star" on the nurses dry erase board in her room and kept trying to distract me so she could win at Air Hockey in the playroom! We had a good time together.

e past two weeks have been a struggle for us. Up until about 5 days ago, Alexis was still feeling crummy from the last treatment. This has made the daily routines with all of Alexis's medicines and treatments a challenge. Since Alexis moves on Alexis's time, it has taken about one and a half hours two times per day to complete everything that has needed done. Luckily, today was Alexis's last day of the Retinoic Acid (since she can't swallow the pills, I dissolve them in milk and then put the residual medicine from the cup on a piece of bread for her to eat)! By the middle of last week, Alexis and I were worn out! She kept saying to me why do I have to have cancer! Today was rewarding though because the nurses told us that Alexis's skin looks great! Retinoic Acid causes skin irritation and can even burn the skin if creams are not applied. Alexis has rashy areas all over her face, arms, neck, belly and legs. Since we have putting creams on twice a day we have kept these areas under control. The nurses compliments meant a lot because we have worked hard to keep her skin under control! Anyway as I was saying Alexis felt crummy until recently. On mother's day weekend, we were able to get together with some of Alexis and Aaron's cousins. Aaron had a great time but Alexis didn't have a lot of energy. She barely played at all. She didn't even start to eat well until last week. She is now at 38 lbs. It isn't much weight gain but at least it is going up!

Today on the way to the hospital we received great news! The doctors finally gave the Make a Wish foundation the okay to plan our trip to Disney World for either October or November! When I asked Alexis if that sounded like good news to her, she said "No why do we have to wait so long!" Of course our first choice of dates is going to be during the week of Alexis's birthday which is October 18th! We are all very excited!

e of you may have seen Scot on the news two weeks ago! One of Scot's new coworkers child attends the Ohio School for the deaf. The week of May 3rd, this school represented Alex's Lemonade stand foundation to help raise money for Pediatric Cancer research. The friday before the fundraiser we received an email from the coordinator of this project stating that she heard about our daughter having cancer from Scot's coworkers wife and wanted to know if they could honor Alexis as one of their local hereos to help raise money for Pediatric Cancer Research. We were very honored to have Alexis be their local hero. On Wednesday, Scot went down to the lemonade stand with his coworkers to show our support for the cause. While he was there for a short time the channel 10 news cast just happened to stop by and interviewed Scot! He was caught off guard but did a nice job! We want to thank the Ohio School for the Deaf for honoring Alexis and for the care package they sent! Alexis loves the sewing machine!

The next two weeks, I am working som
e and staying with Alexis the rest of the time. Scot and my mom will also be staying with Alexis some days. Aaron is staying with his grandparents during the days and will get to see Scot and I some of the nights. Again we are happy to have such great support! We definitely couldn't do everything without the support of our parents!

e Care, Jen


Alexis in a tree at our house.

If you would like to catch up on Lexi's story, you can read all about her here. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

What's THAT Smell??

I am requesting that Hubby and I get to start the day over again. Ya see, he is feeling like crap and since he had offered to go to the store today for me to get a few things, I thought since I only had one daycare kiddo early (because one Mommy doesn't know what day Saturday May 15th is, tell ya later) that I would just go myself.

So me and Miss Syd are off to the store, which of course we spent more than we should have but hey, we got what I was after. BabyBack Ribs that were on sale to take camping Memorial Day weekend and a beef roast so that I can try to fix this craving for Open faced roast beef sandwich with mashed potatoes and gravy. You see, the only family "mom and pop" type of restaurant that was around here that was any good closed so now I am not sure where I am going to get that fix.

Well anyway, back to my story....

Hubby also wanted a sausage biscuit with cheese and a sweet tea from McDonald's, which I wasn't not about to complain about because I could get me a sandwich also. So after the Kroger excursion Miss Syd and I made our stop at McD's. Now as I am getting our food, Hubby calls and of course I missed his call. Ugg! So I call him back and he wants cough syrup...........from Krogers. Needless to say, he didn't get that. I told him I would go back but he said no, he will get it later.

Now when we finally arrive home I take in the Mc Donald's, which was Hubby's idea and get everything out of the bag and guess what? You betcha! Mc Donald's was at their best again today. I ordered a SAUSAGE BISCUIT WITH CHEESE, I know I did because I saw it on the drive thru order screen. Is that what he got? Hell NO! He got an egg and cheese biscuit. I swear that McDonald's is in such a big freakin' hurry all the time they are lucky to get anything right. I suppose that now instead of just counting everything I am going to have to sit there and open each and everything to make sure it is right. Hell, maybe I will just go inside and ask to stand beside them and hold their hand while they make it, so I know it is right. Gee you think we go in there and order a cheeseburger no onion, pickle or mustard. NO, we order everything normal.....well except we add cheese. UGG!

As we are eating out daughters dog, who doesn't know how to burp...he just throws up, pukes on the kitchen floor. Yum! It's going to be a long day today.

Then, after I finish eating I unload the groceries and put them all away except for what needs to go into the camper for our Memorial Day weekend. Going to put those ribs and bacon in the freezer and the condiments in the fridge and as I am walking in I think "Huh, what is that strange smell?" Well I figured it out. The freakin' fridge quit working. Not only did it quit working but, it quit working with a Klondike bar, hamburgers, bacon and sausage in the freezer and condiments and biscuits in the fridge. Oh wow, does that stuff ever smell. Who knows when it quit. I tried to clean the Klondike bar out of the fridge and well there was a lot of gagging going on.

So my bucket of pine-sol and can of FeBreeze is sitting in my kitchen waiting for me to go out and scrub the fridge. Next time I may need to turn the hot water down a bit but I was angry and used the hottest water and well I can't put my darn hand in it yet.

Now that is not it, while I am in the camper I turn and look at the kitchen sink and where is the faucet?? It's laying in the damn sink. Laying. I don't think that that is where it belongs. It has been broken off and is just laying there looking at me. Oh I so wish I knew the story to the death of the faucet. Now for some reason they put plastic faucets in campers but for it to just break and fall into the sink.

Now, Hubby and our daughter have our 3 dogs at the vets office getting their nails trimmed and hopefully they will not bring home any more horror stories for me to tell today. For heaven's's only 10:20am.

Calgon.....take me away!!!

A Menu For Romance (Brides of Bonneterre, Book 2) ~ Book Review

This book A Menu for Romance is the second book in the series Brides of Bonneterre. You can read my review for the first book, Stand In Groom here.

Title: A Menu For Romance
Brides of Bonneterre Book Two
Kaye Dacus
Barbour Publishing, Inc
Publish Date:

About the book:

After eight years of unrequited love, Meredith Guidry makes a New Year's resolution to find someone new and end her single status before the year's over. And when she meets a handsome contractor on New Year's Day, it seems like her prayers have been answered. Executive Chef Major O'Hara has forsworn relationships, knowing he could never saddle the woman he loves with a family situation like his. But when it seems he's about to lose Meredith Guidry to another man, he realizes he must concoct a menu for romance to win her back.

What I thought about the book:

I thought this was a great second book in this series. It kept me wanting to read more and more. I love the characters of Meredith and Major. They are very interesting. Major has a lot on his hands that he does not want Meredith knowing about. Not only will you see things from Meredith's point of view but you will also see them from Major's point of view. Meredith comes from a huge close-knit family and Major comes from just the opposite. I shall not tell you what happens in this book, you will just have to get yourself a copy to read. You will NOT be disappointed.

About the Author:

Kaye Dacus likes to say she writes “inspirational romance with a sense of humor.” She lives in Nashville and graduated from Seton Hill University ’s Master of Arts in Writing Popular Fiction program. She is an active member and former Vice President of American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW).

DOVE Ultimate Anti-perspirant Deodorant ~ Review


  • Shaving reduces the top layer of skin by 20 percent, and can result in irritation and skin dryness.
  • Moisturization is essential for healthy underarm skin.
  • As a result of shaving, underarm skin loses 50 percent more water, which can cause dryness and inflammation.

Dove® Deodorant partnered with Beverly Hills dermatologist and co-author of The Beauty Prescription Dr. Debra Luftman to identify your underarm skin type through a few simple questions. The result: a personalized deodorant recommendation perfect for your underarm skin type.

Take the quiz and arm yourself with the information you need for your next trip to the store. Click here


Dove Ultimate anti-perspirant/deodorant contains a tri-moisturizing system that soothes shaving irritation and helps replenish delicate underarm skin

• The most caring anti-perspirant/deodorant formula made by Dove among invisible solids
• Tri-moisturizing system: occlusive, humectant and nourishing, which includes Dove 1/4 Translucent Moisturizers™ to care for and condition skin

The tri-moisturizing system found in Dove Ultimate anti-perspirant/deodorant consists of the following moisturizers:

• Humectant – works like a magnet to hold in moisture under the skin’s surface, keeping delicate underarm skin conditioned
• Occlusive Layer – forms a layer on the surface of the skin to prevent moisture loss, which can cause dryness

Nourishing Moisturizer

Dove Ultimate delivers outstanding skincare benefits while providing 24-hour odor and wetness protection

• Alleviates white marks
• Cares for delicate underarm skin

Here is what I know!

I have never used the Dove brand before. I am not sure why, I have just always stuck to the one brand I have used forever. Well, guess what? I am now a faithful user of the Dove Ultimate Anti-Perspirant Deodorant. And guess what my favorite scent is? I love the smell of the Nectarine and White ginger. It has such a smooth texture and it is not sticky, at all. I have to say the ole saying of "don't fix what ain't broke" isn't always true. I didn't know my brand was broke but thankfully I have fixed it!

Now, have you ever heard of a Piticure? Well I hadn't until I was sent the information for the Dove Ultimate Anti-Perspirant Deodorant to review. I have heard of Pedicure but not a Piticure. So check out this video and see what you think.

I would like to thank Brian of RocketXL for providing me the Dove Ultimate Anti-Perspirant and Deodorant for the sole purpose of doing this review. I have stated MY honest opinion and that is that.
