Happy Homemaker Monday 10.16.17

Good Evening!!  I have been MIA the last couple of weeks.  One week I got hit with the wonderful cold/flu deal, and it knocked me out.  Then it took about another week to catch up from that, lol.  Had a very nice weekend, my nephew got married, see FAVORITE PIC(s)  below.  Also check out WHAT’S HAPPENING with everything else that has been going on.  Looking forward to our fall break at the end of the week!!  Hope everyone is doing well!!

 Linking-up with Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom.



These all look so yummy!!  They look easy to make too.  I’m sure once I try one, I”ll have to make like four more for each of the kids…kinda defeating the purpose, but yeah, it’s like that around here, lol.




I haven’t had the chance to actually sit down and watch a game this season, but I have been enjoying these highlights.  Javier Baez has been insane this season.  Cubs are in the final series to see if they make it back to the World Series.  How awesome would that be?!?!  I’ll try and watch the last few games.



Quick update on the book.  I am learning so much about marketing, which is one of my least favorite things to do, but it’s interesting all the things that can be done.  One day last week we offered the Kindle version for free for one day only. We got 2700 downloads in one day!!  It was exciting as I was getting notifications as Dan posted in our private FB group the progress throughout the day.  We were basically getting 150 downloads per hour.  That’s a pretty big deal!!  Then the next day we got some actual orders from people who didn’t make it on time for the free download.  All that got us these rankings on Amazon:

#1 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Fantasy > Anthologies & Short Stories

#3 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Horror

#6 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Fantasy > Paranormal & Urban

Saturday was my nephew’s wedding (my sister’s son).  I went around noon to do the brides hair.  I French braided it, and we just put some Babie’s Breath in it, it turned out so pretty.  This was a small, not super fancy wedding, but it was perfect for them.  Although, it rained all. day. long. UGH!!  With moments of some serious lightning and thunder.  But we made it in and out of the church and to the restaurant without getting drenched.  I only got a few pics, but the photographer took a lot, so I’ll be sure to get those.

I had recently started doing some administration/bookkeeping work for a friend of a friend.  I am able to work from home, and it has been so much fun!!  The company is called Green Edventures.  It provides nature-based group learning expeditions that inspire, transform, and connect people to wild places and extraordinary experiences via accessible eco-adventures.  There are trips for students that get coordinated through their schools, and trips for womens groups.  You can check out the two FB pages.  The website has some beautiful pics from the trips themselves.






Me and my sibs


Ben and I took pics of each other because we’re fancy.
