My kids grew up with the Nickelodeon Channel on TV and they LOVED Double Dare with Marc Summers. It was a show of silly questions and challenges and it encouraged my boys to seek out toys to mimic what they saw on TV – goopy and gross stuff which is how we happened upon Nickelodeon Gak and Floam.

DIY Home: Master Bedroom Update – Painting Ceiling and Walls

We’re still moving along and making progress in our master bedroom makeover.  I know, most people can do it in a weekend, but we’re working around jobs and very rare sunshine here in Seattle.

It’s so sad watching him decline and we’re told he has very little time left here with us. We’re heartbroken but we’re trying to make the best of our time with him. Thankfully he appears to be pain free and on most days it’s hard to remember he’s so ill. The first thing I did when we got the diagnosis was take another look at the dog food we’ve been feeding...

I live near the city synonymous with coffee and there’s a cliché that everyone here is powered by the dark brew; but for me that couldn’t be further from the truth. So while I know nothing about coffee, other than I just haven’t been able to acquire the taste for it, what I do know about is a company that cares.
