Five Things You Should Know About This Picture: There’s Only One Way To Kill REALLY BIG Spiders!

1. Since the weather has been a tad cooler here lately (70’s -80’s in the evenings), we have been enjoying family bonfires every night for the past week. And when we do bonfires, we go the whole 9 yards! We are talking S’MORES, HOT DOGS, APPLE CIDER, and FLASHLIGHT TAG! It is a BLAST!

1. Before anyone PANICS… NO, the lawnmower blades were NOT turned on. And YES, they had close, adult supervision the ENTIRE TIME.

Five Things You Should Know About This Picture… “Screamin’ Sicilian!”

Five Things You Should Know About This Picture… “Screamin’ Sicilian!”

1. For starters, let me clarify….Screamin’ Sicilian is a new brand of PIZZA! So, please do not think that we are in any way making fun of anyone’s ethnicity or heritage. I happen to be Italian, so I would be talking about my own self if I was. 😉

2. We have been wanting to try this particular brand of pizza ever since they first started carrying it at our local grocery store. And the only reason we haven’t is because of the price. It costs a good bit more than other frozen pizzas on the market. And those cost even more than buying the materials and making our own pizzas (As talked about in this previous post). But, if you go to Screamin’ Sicilian’s  website and sign up to receive their offers, they will send you a $1.00 off coupon! Continue reading
