Similac Formula Recall!!

Hi folks! ☺ Long time, no talk! LOL
I'm so sorry I've neglected my blog the past
few weeks, but in between having a sick kiddo
and my computer crashing on me, it's been
quite hectic around here!
I've missed ya'll!! :-'(

I wanted to pass along some IMPORTANT
info if you have a baby in the house! I do, but
thankfully I use Nestle Good Start formula (I'm
not saying it's better, only that I don't have to
worry about this recall! ;)

News headline this morning:
STANDARDS! (possibility of beetles and/or
beetle larvae in formula!!! ...yuk!)

You can go here to find out if any you have
is part of the recall!

5 Question Friday.

1. What do you do when you have time to yourself? Blog! I've always heard people say they spent most of their time on their blogs, and when I started mine I was SO excited to have one of my own! & WOW! I'm always looking for things to blog about now! :) I take every minute I have NOT on the computer to spend with my 3 little angels either playing games or cooking! :)

2. When you look out your kitchen window, what do you see? My backyard, where the grass is so high it looks like a cornfield! LOL It's terrible! I also see my kid's Slip-n-Slide, which reminds me of just how much I'm gonna hate to see Summer go. :(

3. Who/What would you want to be reincarnated as? That's a hard one! I think I would love to come back as a butterfly. Their gorgeous, loved by kids, and just look so tranquil flying around everywhere!

4. What is your biggest pet peeve about other people's kids? I hate to see kid's who weren't raised with manners. I know it's not really the kid's fault, but it's so bad seeing a child that talks rude to adults, or takes everything for granted w/out being thankful for it.

5. Regular or Diet soda? I'm not a big soda fan (unless it's Sprite!) but it HAS to be regular! Diet, to me, tastes like regular soda that's been shaken up & has sat open for about a week! F-L-A-T! LOL


I don't know about you, but I'm welcoming the weekend with a smile! :) After a busy week of running kids everywhere from Girl Scouts to Chorus, I'm ready to R.E.L.A.X! Here's a few blog hops goin' on today...
