Become a CBD Member and Save $$$

Ok, so maybe everyone knows about this already and I’m like the last one to find out, but I thought I should mention it anyway.

I’m over at making a list of books I’d like to buy for our homeschool and I read that if you join as a member for only $5 a year, you will automatically get the LOWEST price available on all items you order no matter how you order them—web, phone, or mail. Isn’t that cool?

To be sure there was actually a “lower” price than what is advertised on their website, I called and spoke with a Customer Representative. I gave them a few different stock numbers of items I want to order, and sure enough, each item was between 50 cents to $1 cheaper–with a membership . So, for only $5, I figured I’d make it back in savings with my first order. So, I suppose the real savings would come with additional orders, right?

Well, I like I said, I just wanted to share this information here just in case I’m not the only one who didn’t know about it LOL. Oh, I do not gain any financial benefit by sharing this either, so please don’t think I’m mentioning it just to make money, because I’m not. 🙂

Have you ever heard of the game Bibleopoly before? I was looking at it today and thinking it would be a terrific game to play with my children!

We only have Monopoly Junior and the kids have enjoyed playing it, but Bibleopoly sounds so much better! In the description, I like how it says: win by helping your fellow players! There are not too many games out there that are like this!

If you have this game, please leave me a comment with any good or bad experiences you’ve had with it. Thanks so much!

The Duggar’s Welcome Baby #17!!!

Yes it is true–the Duggar family just welcomed baby #17 into their family. Isn’t that wonderful? You can read more about it here.

I’m from a large family (9 children) and I’ve always wanted a large family (I have 6 so far), but I don’t know that I could imagine having 17 children. I wonder if Michelle Duggar ever gets tired? I mean really, really tired. She must, don’t ya think? How could she not?

It is amazing to think that she and I are the same age, but I only have 6 children. She must be the closest thing to a “supermom” that I can imagine. Oh, all of their children’s names begin with a “J”…isn’t that neat?

I also think it is so wonderful that they live debt-free. THAT is truly amazing, especially in today’s day and age. That would be an AWESOME blessing to be able to live debt-free!

I won at the Dog Days of Summer Bloggy Giveaway!

Wow, I was pleasantly surprised to have received an email saying “You Won!” 🙂

I won a book “Humor Me, I’m Your Mother!” by Barbara Johnson from Kim at Pressing On Toward the Goal I’m so excited–it sounds like a fun book! Thank you Kim! 🙂

Then, as if that wasn’t enough, I received a 2nd email saying I won an Arbonne Sampler Bag from Stacey at The Truest Thing! Thank you Stacey! 🙂

I really had a lot of fun during the Dog Days of Summer Bloggy Giveaway. I hope you did too.

5 Tips to Make Your Life More Fun by Christine Louise Hohlbaum

Are you working too hard? Not spending enough time with friends or family? You probably could use more fun in your life! Here are five fun games to invite more laughter into your day:

1.) The Hat Game

What you need: hat, three or more players

Age group: 2 and above

How you play: Each person takes turns wearing the hat. Whoever wears the hat has to sing a line of his favorite song. See how fast you can play the game!

2.) The Chocolate Game

What you need: timer, goggles or glasses, hat, 2 oven mitts, winter scarf, bar of chocolate, knife, fork, plate, four or more players

Age group: 6 and above

How you play: Each player takes a turn putting all the items on (including the oven mitts!), then trying to cut the bar of chocolate with the knife and fork. Allot about 30 seconds for this on the timer. When the timer rings, it is time to take everything off and hand it to the next person to try.

3.) The Dictionary Game

What you need: dictionary, pens, paper, four or more players

Age group: 6 and above

How you play: Each player takes a turn choosing one word that no one knows. All the other players write down what they think the meaning is or a funny alternative and use it in a sentence. The dictionary master reads everyone’s definitions, and then it comes to a vote. Whoever gets the most votes wins.

4.) Hide the Bunny

What you need: stuffed animal (we use a pink bunny), three or more players

Age group: 18 months and above

How you play: One player hides the bunny somewhere in the room while everyone else closes their eyes. The other players have to search for it. Whoever finds the bunny first gets to hide it next!

5.) Sardines

What you need: at least five players

Age group: 6 and above

How you play: This game is a hide-n-seek spin-off, but everyone wins. Darken the room. One person hides and the others seek. As each person finds the hidden person, he or she stays with the hidden person until the last person finds the entire group. The object is to stay as quiet as possible until the last person joins everyone else.

Laughter truly is the best medicine!
