I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Tips for Tuesday - Books: Sit, Stay. Love: A Wish Novel and Do Your Laundry Or You'll Die Alone

We may have been given some of the books recommended below for review purposes. However, any and all opinions expressed here are our own based on our experience reading the books.
Me - Today I am recommending Sit, Stay. Love: A Wish Novel by J.J. Howard. It is about a girl named Celia. She worked at dog shelter, and she wanted to adopt this dog named Potato. This boy who she did not like adopted Potato first. He wanted to train Potato to be a show dog. Ceila didn't want him too so she pretended to be helping him to sabotage his plans. I liked the dog in this book. It sounded so cute, and I love dogs.  The book was funny. I didn't like the romance parts of it though because I don't like romance. I liked when Celia was talking to her friend Mel about training Potato, and her friend said "You're training a potato?" Tweens who like animals would like this book, and also tweens who like romance.
Mom-  Today I am recommending Do Your Laundry or You'll Die Alone by Becky Blades. Whether you know a student who has recently graduated, or one that is soon to graduate or even if you want to save it for a future graduate, this book is a great choice for a graduation gift. The book is filled with over 250 tidbits of important information to get through life and words to live by. The information ranges from the serious "Don't Let Friend's Drive Drunk" to whimsical "Your Never Too Old for Crayons." You may not agree with every bit of advice in the book, but your bound to agree with most of it, and you'll be glad your graduate is armed with it. There are even blank pages at the end of the book, in case you think that any information was left out and you want to add some. I have already started to add things to my copy and neither of my girls will graduated high school for a few years. I wish they had a book like this back when I graduated. No mother or father should send their child off to college or out in the world without it.

And that's our view. Tune in tomorrow for Where-To-Go Wednesday.
