Writer’s Workshop: Boys Who Love

live here

1. Write a post, poem, or story about something you’re thankful for this Thanksgiving.

This Thanksgiving I’m thankful my son is going to live here forever whether I let him out of his room or not.

Whether he likes it or not.

And I’m thankful that he loves baby kittens.

Because small boys who love baby kittens grow up to be loving men.

Even though I rehomed the baby kitten.

What happens to small boys when their mothers give away the baby kittens they loved?

What kind of men do they turn into?

MY GOD SOMEONE GET THAT KITTEN BACK!

A video posted by Kat Bouska (@mamakatslosinit) on

And have a wonderfully Happy Thanksgiving!

Now it’s your turn!

Vlogging Workshop: The Thanksgiving Tag

You know what I’m thankful for? A four day weekend! In honor of turkey day I completed the Thanksgiving Tag and in just 10 simple questions you will learn everything you need to know about what this holiday means to me…and then some:


(video here)

Alissa from Clever Compass shared a fun video last week which was a compilation of some of the things her family did last month, but here’s the catch, she only shared 1 second per day through the entire video. So the video ends up being only 30 seconds long, but captures an entire month of activity. I love this idea!

Check out Alissa’s blog and YouTube channel and give her some of that sweet sweet love’n.

Does The Huawei Ascend Mate 2 Measure Up?

I’ve never had any sort of tablet before because I couldn’t justify having a phone with all the functionality I needed in one hand, and a tablet with the same functionality (minus the phone) and a bigger screen. But I pined for that bigger screen.

I was so excited to receive the opportunity to try out the Huawei Ascend Mate 2, because with a 6.1″ HD Screen it has married my yearning for a tablet with my need for a phone. I have been in love with the larger screen and it runs on Android so I have access to all of the great apps offered in the Google Play Store.

While I do enjoy the smaller phones for talking purposes, the fact is I spend more time reading and typing on it then I do chatting. I think this 6.1″ screen size is as large as I would go for a phone device without being too large. I can still fit it in the kangaroo pouch of my hoodie, I can still slip it into my coat pocket and obviously it still fits into my purse.

The second thing I love about this device is a biggie…the battery life is unreal. On one full battery this thing lasts for 2.5 days and that’s WHILE you are using it the entire time. This is huge to me because between texting friends, killing time playing games, and taking photos/videos of our family outings…I use my phone a lot. And I kill the battery a lot.

It has a $299 price tag and no contract required, I’d say if you are in the market for a new phone you should definitely add this to your list of options to research!
