1. I’ll take any excuse to eat more chocolate. But did you know that researchers have come close to making connections between chocolate consumption and memory? Pretty neat if you ask me!

2. Did you hear that bloggers are no longer allowed to use Facebook in association with giveaways? Blogger can no longer incentivize followers to like their page and earn an entry in a giveaway. Seems pretty silly to me.

3. The Antares rocket explosion this week was so sad to me. So much time, work and effort went into building that rocket and the supplies going to the Space Station. I can’t image what it would feel like to see your work  destroyed like that. Thankfully, no one was injured.

4. On a lighter note, did you see Daniel Radcliff on Jimmy Fallon? He can rap, apparently.

5. What are your plans for Halloween? Initially, Bud and I planned to dress up and go out with friends. But the we decided to be lame and opted for a night in. We’ll be handing out candy and drinking wine. Or maybe we’ll just eat all the candy…



Sponsor Feature – So Called Homemaker

Can y’all believe it’s almost the end of October? That’s crazy! In a few weeks, we’ll be celebrating Thanksgiving and before you know it will be Christmastime! Sine it’s the end of the month, it’s time to feature one of my lovely sponsors!
Today, I’d like to introduce y’all to Christine of the blog So Called Homemaker. It’s been such a joy to get to know Christine this month and I’m so glad I get to share her with y’all today!


1. Why did you start your blog?

A “real life” friend of mine was blogging and I saw how much fun she was having, so I thought I would give it a go!  I had been looking for something to do that would be a creative outlet, but is has definitely become much more than that!

2. What’s behind the name of your blog?

Honestly, when I was thinking of names for my blog, it just kind of popped into my head, so it wasn’t something that I put a lot of thought into coming up with.  But the more I thought about it, the more I loved it, because it perfectly described me.  Since I work from home, I’m not technically a stay-at-home-mom, but I do everything a homemaker would, too.  So there you have it!

3. What’s one fun fact about you?

It’s a little strange, but I have a scar on my tongue!  I bit through it when I was really little.  It’s definitely a unique kind of scar to have.

Make sure to follow along to read her journey as a mama, homemaker and so much more!
