Visiting the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing York Springs, Pennsylvania #dirttracking #visitpa #travel #sprintcars

Living in New Jersey has it's perks.  I am surrounded by beautiful mountains and close to the ocean.  Not only that, but I am 10 minutes from NYC, and less than 2 hours from PA and CT. When I am not down the shore, you can usually catch me and my husband at the races.  One of our very first dates was at a little 3/4 midget track in Pinebrook, NJ.  The track no longer exists, but the memories I have of it will last forever. We recently visited the Eastern Museum of Motor Racing  , a usual stop for us when in the Williams Grove, Pennsylvania area.  We visit so often, they know us by name. The museum is free of charge and packed with lots of racing history. This year, there is a new building addition that has been added to the museum.  When I walked inside the new building, my jaw dropped.  There, on the wall, in all of it's glory, was the sign from Pinebook.  I admit I got a little teary eyed when I saw it.  It truly was a grand site to see. Over the years it has b

Affordable Protection for your iPhone7 from Sahara Case #sponsored

I have had my iPhone7 for less than a month and the case I had on it did not do a good job at protecting my screen.  I already have scratches on it.  While the case looked nice on my phone, it did nothing to protect it. I am really happy to have gotten this case from Sahara Case .  A lot of technology went into the making of this case.  It was designed by veteran phone repair engineers. Sahara Case's iPhone7 bundle includes everything that you need to protect your iPhone7.  This bundle includes zero break, tempered glass, fool proof installation tools, a protective case with no slip gripping and installation tools. The items in this set are boxed and labeled clearly and come with complete constructions.  This case is available in 8 different colors and costs under $20. CLICK TO ORDER! Let me tell you a little about the features of this case. 1. Zero Damage Tempered Glass

Are You An "Expert" Parent?

What exactly is an expert parent?  I think the fact that my child has survived to the age of 24 must mean I did something right.  Do I consider myself an expert?  By no means.  But I do know one thing.  I always made my child my priority in every aspect of his life. When I decided to become a mom, I made the decision that my life would be dedicated to my child, until he was old enough to make it on his own.  I wish I could sit here and say I didn't make any mistakes along the way, but I can't.  Of course I made stupid decisions at times or gave in to whining at times.  I even may have missed a meal or two or fed my son donuts for breakfast.  It happens. Being a parent is not an easy task by any means.  It is time consuming, exhausting, frustrating, exhilarating, comical, fulfilling and everything in between.  I often found myself scratching my head and thinking to myself, what do I do now?  Have you ever walked into a room, looked at the mess your child ma

Homemade Chili with KIVA SWEET Smoked Spanish Paprika (Review) #eco-friendly

Make a delicious, warm meal for your family. There is nothing like a nice hot bowl of chili on a cold day. I received some KIVA Hot & Sweet Spanish Paprika to review and I decided to make a big pot of chili for my family using it. The KIVA Sweet Spanish paprika gave my chili a nice smoky flavor.  It really enhanced my chili.  Since I used the sweet paprika,  my husband added a pinch of the hot paprika to his chili to give it a little bite.  Here is the recipe: (Ingredients) Olive oil 1/2 large onion chopped 2 cloves of garlic minced 3 small peppers (various colors) chopped small 2 lbs ground beef 1 can of red kidney beans (drain and rinse) 1 can of white cannelini beans (drain and rinse) 1 tbsp of KIVA Sweet or Hot Smoked Paprika 1/4 cup ketchup 1 tsp onion powder 1 tsp garlic powder a pinch of nutmeg 1 jar of tomato sauce salt  pepper (Directions) Sautee the onions and peppers in olive oil. (I like
