Cash Explosion adventure

Today Ohiophotogrl took me and some of her family on an adventure. We went to a taping of Cash Explosion in Columbus Ohio. We had breakfast at her dads and then loaded up the van and headed out. The car ride is a little over an hour from his house but we had fun talking about which of our relatives we had talked to this week.

Cash Explosion has been collecting canned goods for the food banks in the area, so we each took 10 canned goods and were entered into a drawing for $500. Of course we didn’t win but we still had a good time. The taping lasted about an hour and a half and there was lots of prizes to be won by the people in the audience.

We had to go thru metal detectors to get in…for our safety and they sat us in the front row! OMG we are gonna be on TV. We sat right where the contestants came into the show! Show airs March 24th so be in the look out for us. Ohiophotogrls sister won a few things.

And so did her dad but we didn’t have any luck but we did get to meet the Hosts of the show…

The best part was we all had a great time! I’ll leave you with one last photo of me as we were leaving

What a fun day….wonder what we’re gonna do next?


Valentines Day

Today some of you will be celebrating Valentines Day. I personally Love this day! Why you ask….

I love, LOVE! Spend the day spreading love to people. Hold open a door for that person at the bank, bless someone when they sneeze, most of all tell the people in your life you love them, even your little sister :0)

Thanks for being on this journey with me! Ohiophotogrl and I appreciate each of you!

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

Tomorrow is Love Day

I couldn’t figure out what to do for Ohiophotogrl for Valentines Fay so I started searching Pinterest. I put my apron on

And pulled out some ingredients

I also found some melting chocolate so guess what I made…

How cute are those! They are now in the fridge getting cold to serve with dinner! I am one crafty potato!

Wonder what we’ll do next!

I’m ready are you

Here in the 937 we got hit with a few inches of snow last night

It was really bad this morning, but as you can see the roads are now clear. That little spot by my nose…’s a resident squirrel. He came down from his nest to get the corn I left him :0)

I am so ready for spring! I ordered some seeds for the garden and they came in the mail yesterday!

This isn’t everything I’m gonna plant but a variety of the things I want to grow. Do you have a Garden? What do you like to plant in your garden? Stay tuned as it gets closer to spring, we will be getting the garden ready and even planting some starters ahead of time! I love to garden! This year we ordered heirloom seeds from no gmos. We will be sharing more about this as time goes on!

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

Hey you

What do you do on a rainy day

We make muffins.  Banana, walnut, golden raisin muffins to be exact!img_0025

This is good for breakfast on the go! We make small ones and regular size ones when we make them.  It only takes about 20 minutes to mix them up and back them. We use a mix from the grocery store and then add extra nuts and raisins. MMMMMMMMMMM Good!

What kinda muffins do you like?

Can bubbles freeze

Ohiophotogrl and I have been watching people blow bubbles when it’s really cold out side. Some of the photos are really neat! We thought we would give it a try.

First we mixed our solution.

We used:

1 cup of water

1/4 Cup Of Dawn dish soap

1/8 cup of Karo corn syrup (the clear kind)

Mixed it all up and then let it set on the counter for half an hour. We wanted it wall to be at the same temperature.

Then it was time to test our bubbles. There was very little wind. This is very important to know. Wind will burst our bubbles. It also has to be below 15 degrees. We waited till it was 12 degrees outside. We went on the back porch and turned on our porch light. There is a trash can by the back door so that’s where we aimed the bubbles.

Several bubbles landed and after 3-4 minutes this is what we got

Kinda looks like a doggie if you look in the bubble. We got frozen lines in there but no real cool patterns. The wind started to pick up which causes the bubbles to do this….

It was a fun experiment! Wonder what we’re gonna do next?
