Never Be Ashamed of Needing A Little Help From a Licensed Therapist or Psychologist


For some reason, there seems to be such a stigma towards mental health in general. It's that stigma that prevents people from seeking the help they need. The idea is out there that asking for help, or even just having a mental illness, makes you weak or that you should feel some sort of shame like there is something wrong with you. But guess what. They are wrong! There is absolutely nothing with you. And there is definitely nothing wrong with needing a little help through it sometimes.

Unique Bullet Thermos Bottle, Perfect For Dad!


I don't know about you, but I have the hardest time buying things for the men in my life. Whether it's my dad, my step-dad, my grandpa, my brothers, or even my own husband. Every single one of them are the type that, when they want or need something, they just go get it themselves. This makes it really hard to shop for them come holidays and birthdays. Add to that, that our local area is dead when it comes to places to find unique gifts for literally anyone, much less the men in my life. So I when I found Apollo Box through a Facebook ad, there was a huge sign of relief!

Renovating Our Dining Room - Part One


When we started house hunting, we knew we wanted a home that we could put a little work into to make our own, but we also didn't want to have to put a ton of work into it. We were looking for something that we could slap some paint on the walls, maybe install new flooring, do some landscaping, and be done. Hahahaha! Sure, Jan. Not in this area! People here just don't take very good care of their homes, as we came to discover when we went to look at what seemed like a bazillion of them. Luckily, we finally found one that had potential to be our forever home. And here we finally are, 5 years after purchasing it, starting the first big project.

IQ Jumps Logic Puzzle Board Game


Did I ever tell you about our board game collection? No?! Well, I will have to definitely add that to the list of future blog posts. At any rate, we have a sizable collection because we just love playing games. We are also pretty fond of anything that makes us think. For example, I'm one of those people who love those variety puzzle books and buy them all the time. 

We recently got IQ Jumps to try out, and here's what we thought.
