Welcome to Day 4 of the Blog Pop Spring Fling event, hosted by Momma Told Me!

Let me tell you about the mouthwatering spiral smoked ham that you can find at Petit Jean Meats. Holy. Moly.

Petit Jean Meats Spiral Smoked Ham

One thing I really appreciated about this ham (besides the convenience of only having to heat it up) was that it contained no added water. You know what I’m talking about. I hate it when you get a ham like that. It’s like cheating! Anywho, that’s SO not the case with this spiral smoked ham. It’s melt-in-your-mouth good. The flavor is absolutely delightful. It’s as though angels are dancing on your tongue. Throw in some deviled eggs, some mashed potatoes, some warm dinner rolls — maybe a veggie (just kidding, always a veggie or two!) — and, wow. You have got yourself a meal that will have you going back for seconds. And maybe a few more bites of ham after that.

We were very excited to have the opportunity to partner with Orb Factory as well as offer one of my readers the chance to win a fun prize pack of kids activities!

Orb Factory Kids Activities

We tackled this activity — the Sticky Mosaics Fairies — first, and my niece just went to town with all these colorful sticky foam pieces and shiny jewel pieces, creating her bedazzled fairy. Or, should I say, four fairies, because she was so enthralled by all the pinks and purples and sparkly gems, she didn’t want to stop at just one. It was great seeing her engaging in a craft that was age-appropriate and so much fun for her. These come with adhesive hang tags, so she can hang them in her room, or from a hook on the fridge, you name it. They’re everywhere!

The story of a sick child: A Neuroblastoma Diagnosis

A long time ago, I began writing about my experience with my son’s illness. I didn’t realize how difficult it would be to relive that experience through writing about it, which is why I hadn’t written the next part of the series. However, after reading about Lacey Holsworth, I couldn’t put it off any longer. I saw the link to Lacey’s story in an email newsletter and something sparked within me. I quickly scanned the article to find out what type of cancer had struck down this little girl. And there it was: A neuroblastoma diagnosis.

The article referred said neuroblastoma is a fetal-nerve cell cancer. I knew all about that. Because doctors gave my son a neuroblastoma diagnosis when he was 2.

Computer Protection with Norton by Symantec

This is a Fashionista Event and a promotional item was provided to me by Coupons.com. Hosts for this event are Still Blonde after all these Years and ModlyChic. My opinions about Norton by Symantec and computer protection are 100% honest and 100% mine.

Norton By Symantec Computer Protection

March 31 was World BackUp Day. Did you celebrate it? It’s a day that’s supposed to act as a reminder to back up your important files. Let me back up a second. Have you ever backed up your files? I haven’t. And that’s pretty important when it comes to computer protection.

I know, I know. At any time, I could lose all my files; hundreds — no, thousands — of photos, documents, you name it. That would…stink. Big time.

Norton by Symantec Computer Protection Zombie Virus

 

I really should know better, since my computer once was infected with a “zombie virus” that led to two wireless networks (home and school) denying me service. That’s how I found out. Luckily, as a university student, I had access to (mostly) free tech support. So, in I walked, anxious and embarrassed, laptop in hand, hoping for the best. Guess what I was asked?

Karina Dresses Dresstacular Short Sleeve Dress

For the fourth round of our Karina Dresses review, you’ll notice that we — once again — chose the Megan Dress. This is our third Megan, which was unintentional, but we just can’t help it! At least this time, we chose a patterned short sleeve dress to shake things up a bit.

This short sleeve dress is absolutely fab for spring and summer! It is so versatile — you can accessorize with black, with white, or basically any color you choose. As you can see, we went with pink here (my favorite color), but you can go with whatever color works for you — red? Blue? Yellow? Green? You name it, it works!
