When I first walked into the At Home Store I was blown away at all of the different items, from Organization Bins, in every color, and material imaginable.  Shelves that looked like Blue Police Boxes (yes, I bought the TARDIS Police Box) it was just practical for me with it's sleek design, and close-able doors.  I also really liked the Wooden Jukebox Shelves, and the ones that looked like Vintage Gas station Pumps too. I want to buy one the Juke Box Wooden Shelf Cabinets next just to justify it as It's the Masters.. and his Chameleon circuit is on. That's a reason to buy it, right?!

If you are like me and aren't the greatest with styling rooms (The Blue Mood is my Favorite.) At Home makes it easy with Back to Campus ideas already by going here, http://www.athome.com/back-to-campus/

There really is a style for everyone.  The store has it all, candles, beds, bedding, room dividers, shelves, dressers, tables, patio furniture, seasonal goodies.  Mine had Halloween decor out, and I was in LOVE!  I also like the candy, and snacks section that wrapped around the whole front Check out.

Each area in the Store had different design ideas set up by style, and colors.  To give ideas of what would look good together.  People pay good money for a styler,

I dig that At Home does it for you already at an affordable price.  I didn't want to leave the store.  It was aisle after aisle of great decorative suggestions.

If you've never been to the store, you should definitely go check them out, Use the Find Store Locater on the website, and check them out. When I went they were also having a 50% off Annual Clearance Sale.  http://www.athome.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-athome-Site/default/Stores-Find

Fisher-Price - Think & Learn Code-a-pillar™ #Review We LOVE it! @BestBuy @fisherprice #TechToys #Ad

My favorite feature about Fisher Prices new Code-A-Pillar Think & Learn Tech Toy is that it interlocks as easily as connecting USB ports together.  It also had a lot of fun sounds, and lights for each code that it programs to do by the different segments.

My 5 year old is autistic and is delayed in certain cognitive skills, and has trouble with his hands sometimes but the moment he picked the interlocking segment pieces up to the Code-A-Pillar he knew how to connect them.  They are a much more fun, and interactive way to problem solve and develop critical thinking than the typical lacing beads that can be boring for children that crave sensory needs.

I really believe this will keep any childs attention while learning to code, and learn cause & effect by having fun.  Some of the sounds it makes even made me giggle, I thought what a sassy Code-A-Pillar! When it does run into something, it stops completely and it's eyes light up, and makes a noise so that they know to change direction or rearrange the combination of the segments so that it can keep going.

Do you want to have first-hand experience and influence how your child will learn, build, and grow? Do you want to make it a fun and educational experience that you can both enjoy? With these new Kids Tech products/gadgets and learning apps, keeping your kids engaged couldn’t be easier. Find out more about The Code-A-Pillar by Fisher Price over at BestBuy,

Time to get the home you've always wanted.

Time to Get the Home You’ve Always Wanted

Renovating your home can seem like a difficult project, and while it can certainly be costly, many home renovation projects boost the value of your home accordingly. In the long run, keeping up with current building trends can actually help you earn more when it’s time to sell and move.

Taking on a home renovation project can also help you get the right home for you and your family. It might be stressful to think about, but a little bit of proper planning can really go a long way toward perfecting your home.

Do Your Homework

Before you start a home renovation project, you need to figure out who you’re going to be using for the work. For the most part, the way to do that involves a few different steps.

First, start by asking people you know for a recommendation. If they’ve got somebody that did good work for them, they will be happy to tell you about it! You’ll also want to do your own research based on recommendations, including contacting the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and looking online for customer reviews.

Know Your Budget

A home renovation project without a budget can quickly go awry, and if you’re not careful, a $10,000 project could turn into $20,000 or more. That’s why you need to figure out exactly how much you can really afford to spend.

When working on your budget, consider any home loans, credit cards and cash you plan to use. Put about 5% aside in case something goes wrong that can’t be predicted at the start of the job. Hopefully nothing will go wrong, but you don’t want to be left in the rain if it does.

Get Three Quotes

When a home renovation project starts, you need to meet with a variety of builders to talk about your project. Getting a quote from all of them probably isn’t necessary though, especially if you’ve decided that some aren’t truly qualified for your work.

For the best results, get three home renovation quotes and compare them. By doing that you’ll be able to avoid paying the highest fee and from hiring people who may do cut-rate work.

You don’t want to spend an arm and a leg, but you don’t want the work to fall apart in a year either.

Tips for your furry family while on vacation!

We all grow attached to our animals, and it can be hard to go on a trip knowing that your furry best friend will be missing you the entire time. Here are some tips for deciding what to do when you can't take your pet with you on that beach vacation.

If you only plan to be gone for a couple of days, it may be feasible to leave your pet at home. Make sure they have enough food in their bowl to tide them over. If you don't already have one, you may want to consider a water dispenser that keeps their bowl full at all times. If you own a dog, you'll have to have a yard and a doggy door installed so they can go outside to do their business while you're away. When you aren't comfortable leaving your pet at home, there are plenty of other options to consider

First, think about whether you might have any friends or neighbors that wouldn't mind watching your pet in exchange for a few bucks or some freshly baked cookies. You may be surprised by the number of people who'd be happy to do you a favor. If you can't think of anyone trustworthy who'd be willing to spend some quality time with Fido, try performing a Google search for pet sitters in your area. There are likely to be plenty of people around who are experienced in caring for a wide range of pet species.

If you're the type of person who wants only the best for your loyal pal, consider seeking out a luxury dog kennel such as Paw Print Inn. When you leave your dog at a premium kennel, you can feel comfortable knowing they'll be entertained and cared for by trained professionals. Many luxury kennels offer scheduled play sessions and one-on-one cuddle time to ensure that your dog's social needs are being met. Be aware that many kennels don't accept aggressive dogs.

As you can see, there's no need to worry if you need to go on a trip without your pet for any length of time. There are a number of options to choose from that can accommodate most budgets and circumstances.
