Tuesday’s Tastes on Second Base – Milk Supply Shortage

Tuesday's Tastes

Milk supply is something I always worry about. I sometimes think it is because I work full time and pump at work. Pumping at work allows me to see how much milk I am getting, which many days I think is not enough! If I weren't pumping daily and I were just feeding Addy, I am sure I would have confidence in the fact that she's gaining weight so she must be eating enough. Courtney from Joy of Momma Joyner and I are here for another week of … [Read more...]

Save Money with Packages from Connect Your Home

Connect Your Home

It also reminded us how much we pay for these services because when we didn't have them we wanted a credit for the days we were without service. … [Read more...]

Solar Panels – A Great Way to be Green

Solar Homes Money Savings

Something I have wanted to do for a long time is to get solar panels installed in our home. I just love the fact that solar radiation from the sun can actively convert the energy into electricity.
