Spring Is Here-That Means Easter Is Next!

Spring is finally here~after the long cold winter that we had I was so happy to see the sun! And,with that warm weather comes a holiday that is one of my favorites.Easter. Don't you just love going to the store and seeing all the different kinds of candy that they have? Or all the cute Easter Plush's that are out now? I saw the cutest bunny today~he was pink and had the biggest ears that stuck right up! I was going to buy one~but I have 10 grandchildren and one bunny is not a option anymore..LOL So~I decided that I we didn't need it. We always get together and have a big dinner and I am already thinking about my shopping list. As we have a big ham,with all the trimmings.I am talking two different kinds of potatoes~green bean casserole~corn and of course deviled eggs. I do most of the cooking as my daughter likes to make the desserts.She always comes up a good too~she goes through all her cookbooks to find a new one! I can't wait to see what she comes up with this year.

Boudreaux's Butt Paste Review & Giveaway! 4/16

Boudreaux's Butt Paste was specifically formulated by a pharmacist with direction from a respected pediatrician to provide effective diaper rash care. I don't know about you~but I have been using this for years! As Boudreaux's Butt Paste has been around a long time.   Boudreaux's Butt Paste was originally developed in the 1970s by Louisiana pediatrician "Pappy" Talbot, but the main formula was compounded by a local pharmacist, Dr. George Boudreaux, in the town of Covington. The product became a local hit, and in 1994, Boudreaux sold his pharmacy to concentrate on marketing Butt Paste. Upon selling the pharmacy, Boudreaux bought an RV, renamed it the "Butt Mobile" and traveled to regional trade shows and local pharmacies to market the product.   At one of these shows, a regional manager at Wal-Mart took on the product for a trial. When the trial period was over, the manager found Doc Boudreaux's product outsold the leading brand by a la
