The Holidays are coming up. That means hosting parties and family gatherings are also going to be on the rise these next few months as well. Jay Companies wants to help you be the star hostess this year. They have teamed up with Mom Powered Media for this great event They offer a variety of Home products for you. You can start with a great dish set, and add in some barware. When serving those drinks you want to make sure that you have a great selection. Then don't forget the the items to serve all those courses with. You want everything to coordinate. The counters need some great talking pieces as well. Then they have some fun games that you can play. Jay companies has been around since 1950 and has been helping you have great kitchenware. They also have Home Decor items. So now matter what you are looking for, they have it. I did review some of the game, likeroulette and basketball. I did also do a review of the beverage containers. Those have been the biggest talking point at my house already. Everyone loves the vintage look. Jay Companies is sponsoring a giveaway of the American Atelier Canister set. It is the definite talking piece as well. It stands out in the kitchen enough that people will notice it. They will talk about it and how unique it is. This is just not something that everyone has. That alone will make your kitchen stand out to everyone that checks it out. firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any additional questions or comments.

Lately, I have been in kind of a funk. This past summer has been very trying, both emotionally and physically. Between personal issues, the entire family getting sick over and over, and the depressing state of the world we live in, I have definitely found it hard to smile and think positive thoughts lately. I guess that comes with the territory of being a very sensitive person in general.
I would really like Fall to be a fresh start with a whole new outlook on life. Thankfully, World Gratitude Day is September 21, 2014. What better reason than to celebrate all the good things and small blessings in one's life, don't you agree?
I'd like to share 5 things I am thankful for. Some of them are big, some are small. The fact is, I really do have a lot to be grateful for, even when life hands you bushels of lemons and there's no sugar to make lemonade.
First, I am thankful that my teenage son, Kyle, has made a beautiful transition into high school. Like many teens, he wasn't too thrilled about the start of a new school year, and he had foolishly hoped that summer would last forever. He wasn't looking forward to new teachers, a new school, and the increased responsibility that comes with being a high school student.

My teenage son has a hollow leg or something. I swear, no matter how substantial his lunch was, he always complains that he's "starving" when he gets home from school. I have heard all those rumors of teen boys eating more than a small army, and in my home, they're definitely proving to be true! This kid can definitely eat, that's for sure.
Rather than purchasing frozen or prepackaged snack foods, I prefer to serve my ravenous teen something a bit healthier. After all, my family does affectionately refer to me as the "Junk Food Nazi". Since I flat-out refuse to buy chips, snack cakes, or other processed crap, fruits, homemade granola, and veggies are favorites here. My kids don't complain, thankfully. Either they really enjoy my organic, healthy goodies, or they just don't want to experience the wrath of the All-Mighty Junk Food Nazi.

Do you ever forego your favorite foods and beverages because they're just not worth the pain and discomfort? I know I do. Thanks to a bout with an eating disorder and a previous addiction to soda, my teeth tend to be very sensitive to temperature at times. I am actually saving up to get veneers and a whole dental make-over, but until I win the lottery, I just have to tolerate it, and accept the fact that I will occasionally have to skip hot and cold food and drink.
Tooth sensitivity definitely gets in the way of enjoying an ice cream cone or a steaming hot cup of coffee. But now that fall is here, I want that coffee and hot cocoa. I get cold so easily since I'm not yet accustomed to the Arctic blasts here in Ohio, and a nice, hot beverage definitely helps keep me warm as the weather cools.
