Things I Am An Expert At

1. Tracking down animals in my neighborhood that need me to rescue them.

2. Telling children what to do.

3. Eating my weight in pumpkin pie.

4. Putting things off.

5. Spending money.

And as it turns out I’m also an expert at being an expert. I’m excited to see my articles featured as part of the SheKnows Expert Among Us . This is what I am an Expert in for them this week:

13 People having a worse holiday than you (in GIFs)

Get what you give: Why I pay it forward during the holidays

8 Ways to entertain your kids without TV

And in the spirit of giving, I had the opportunity to share my very special reason for giving this holiday season with SheKnows and The Salvation Army. Check out the video and share your #redkettlereason!

I hope I can write an article about eating my weight in pumpkin pie next. That seems like an organic fit for me.

Kahlua Mudslide!

I’m winding down this week with a drink that I actually did not find on Pinterest, but happened to spot at the store and wanted to try. I mean, I’m sure I could find it on Pinterest if I really tried and then we could legitimately call it a drink we saw on Pinterest. But who has time for that?

You wouldn’t believe how much easier drinks are to film when there isn’t an actual recipe involved. Premade drinks are my friend:

Pick up a Kahlua Mudslide and cheers to your weekend!

Writer’s Workshop: Your Future Dog Choice

lainas future dog

1. Tell us about an argument you witnessed.

I overheard my daughters arguing because each of them said something mean about the others future, non existent dog choice.

To be clear, they have each chosen the breed of dog they will have when they are grown and they have each insulted the others decision.

Maile chose a German Shepard.

Laina said a German Shepard was too big.

Laina chose a Bull Dog.

Maile said a Bull Dog was small and fat and would never protect her.

Laina came in crying and I honestly thought her sister must have been really ganging up on her the way she was carrying on.

I found the arguing so ridiculous that I threatened to send them each a future Chinese Crested hairless mongrel if they didn’t knock it off.

Vlogging Workshop: Cabela’s For The First Time

cabelas

I was GOING to vlog about an embarrassing moment this week, but you know…I didn’t. So instead I will share with you my experience visiting Cabela’s for the first time ever. This is an outdoorsy store for outdoorsy type people and living in the Pacific Northwest, I am surrounded by a lot of outdoorsy type people. I do enjoy an occasional hike as long as the entire thing is flat and preferably in a mall. I like to go camping once a year, but wouldn’t be opposed to a glamping upgrade. Since my family happened to be in the area, my husband and I decided we should definitely explore what the hype was about this place. And…well I was left feeling a little speechless, as you can see:
