With Spring fast approaching, I have been working hard to get everything cleaned and separated for warm weather. I have sorted, stacked, scrubbed and organized hundreds of things that I want to keep, donate or sell. As I go, I try to find the perfect place to put everything, but I keep needing more and more plastic containers. I use plastic containers to store craft and art supplies, toys, baking tools and many other things. With so many different styles and sizes, I always have a need for more. Imagine the containers I could get if I won this gift card giveaway!

My daughter can't do anything the simple way. If there is creativity in play, you can bet she is going to try and go all out one way or the other. When she came home telling us it was time to make her valentine box, we just knew that meant trouble.
It took her forever to decide on a box and design, but eventually she went with Care Bears and a huge box. I had tried to get her to use the foil covered box design we always used as kids, but she wasn't having any of that. Instead she decided we should cover the box with different kinds of scrapbook paper. This was followed by coloring and cutting out the perfect Care Bears from a coloring book and gluing them to the sides of the box.
She then had to decorate the box with stickers, sequins, glue and lots of glitter. In the end, she loved her box so it was worth all the time we spent making it. Love that crazy girl!
I have noticed a lot of conversation about prom lately. It seems like everywhere I look, I see something about it. I am so glad my daughter is still years away from all of that. Prom season means the search is on for all of the things needed to make it the perfect night. While the men might handle the car and tux, everyone knows the real activity comes when the girls are looking for their dream prom ensemble.
Finding the right dress for this event is an absolute must for teenage girls. Prom dresses, like those from JenJenHouse, come in such a wide variety of style and color, that the hard part can be deciding which one to choose. So much time can be spent going from store to store,or searching online for the exact look wanted and deciding between ballgown or empire, mermaid and sheath can be a tough decision for any teenage girl. Each style offers it's own unique look, so it is important to pick the one that best accents her body shape and size.
Of course, a prom dress really has to be the perfect color too. Matching a dance theme or school colors might influence the shade choice, but so should skin tone and hair color. A great prom dress will accent the figure while not revealing too much. It's cut and style should be flattering and the color should compliment your natural look, not overshadow it and leave you looking less than perfect.
While it may take a bit of browsing, a lot of time, and maybe even a few fitting sessions, in the end finding the look that suits you will be well worth the investment. You want to be picture perfect for your special day. After all, prom only comes once a year and is a memory to treasure for a lifetime.
Many people never give a thought to what is actually in their pet food. Maybe you use a brand because it is on sale, or someone else suggested it, but do you really know if that is the best choice for your little friend? Even if their pet is the same size or breed as yours, they may need very different diets to be truly healthy.
Your pet is someone who is always there for you. They are waiting at the door when you come home, or crawling in your lap to be held and shown affection. Your pet doesn't mind how you look and is always there for you when you have a bad day, or just need comfort. We get used to them always being available and sometimes forget that it is a two-way relationship. Just as our pets try to make us happy, we should return that favor by making sure they are happy and healthy too.
U.S. Pet-Ownership Estimates from the American Pet Products Association for 2012
· *83.3 million - Number of owned dogs
· *47% - of households own at least one dog
· *70% - of owners have one dog
· *20% - of owners have two dogs
· *10% - of owners have three or more dogs
· *1.47 - the average number of owned dogs per household
· *20% - of owned dogs were adopted from animal shelters
· * 83% - of owned dogs who are spayed or neutered
· * $231 – the average annual amount spent on routine vet visits
In a recent survey,over 83% of dog owners consider their pet to be a member of the family, so it only makes sense that they would feed it as such too. You wouldn't offer poor quality, unhealthy food to your family members, and you shouldn't feed it to your pets either. A healthy diet helps keep your pet functioning correctly and, considering the average household spends hundreds of dollars a year on pet care, it can save you money in the long run too.
Why are natural dog food diets so important anyway? “Natural products go far beyond just basic nutrition,” says Dr. Al Townshend, staff Veterinarian at Wellness® Pet Food. “Natural diets are designed to provide the very best nutrition and can have significant benefits.”
In fact, according to Dr. Townshend, “natural diets offer ingredients with some important health benefits such as probiotics, those good bacteria that are essential for a healthy immune system and digestive tract; glucosamine and chondroitin for joint health; omega-3 fatty acids or fish oils for heart and kidney health; and added digestive supplements to enhance digestibility to get the very best benefits from quality proteins and fats.”
As a leader in natural pet food, Wellness uses natural, high-quality proteins and fats in their dog food recipes. They also include fruits and vegetables for natural vitamins, minerals and other benefits, especially antioxidants that occur in blueberries, cranberries and some vegetables, which help make their dog food products some of the healthiest options in the marketplace.
Wellness recipes do not include added artificial colors, flavors or ingredients, and they’ve even created the helpful site http://www.wellnesspetfood.com/checkyourbag that you can use to compare their natural dog food to those from some competitors who claim to be natural.
Some of the biggest benefits to Wellness® Complete Health® Recipes include:
· *Live Active Probiotics – Added after the cooking process to promote a healthy intestinal tract and overall digestive health at guaranteed levels
