Casting Call: Major Cable Network Show Looking for TX Families


A major cable network is currently casting mom’s that want to nominate* another mom or dad that has over-the-top decorating decor, an unusual display of knick knacks or just a questionable sense of style. This is a fun and uplifting series where you get to help your friend or loved one get a complete room makeover and learn decorating tips from world class designers. We are not looking for those that simply need upgrades, these nominees need to have pride in their decor but also be open to a makeover. We also are not seeking “Extreme Makeover Home Edition” type stories, this is more of a light-hearted show.

What a great idea! I am excited to share this with you all. So if you are in Texas or know a deserving family who owns their home that you feel could benefit as being a guest on this show please read on to learn how to nominate your friend and their family. I know I can’t wait to watch this show!

You can submit your nomination by sending an email to with your name and contact info plus information describing the nominee and her/his room that is in question or visit the website for more information.

*Nominee must own their home

Mommy Can You Count to 100?

The cutest thing, AJ has been asking all sorts of questions. I find it cute because AJ was nearly deaf in his left ear as a young child and had to have tubes placed in his ears. He had multiple ear infections that went untreated even with antibiotics, after a long time of him having ear infections over and over and having one so bad that his ear swelled off his head they referred him to an ENT. The ENT recommended tubes and told us his left ear was so bad it had basically “glue” over his ear drum. This makes sense now looking back, AJ was slow to talk or anything like that, advanced physically but the speech wasn’t coming.

Now that AJ is four it’s almost like he is at the same level with his 2 year old brother as far as talking and questions go. The other night I was laying with AJ before bedtime as I snuggle with him for a few minutes before bed and he says to me “Mama 100 comes after 9 right?”. I giggle and said “no hunny 10 comes after 9″. AJ looked at me slightly confused with a big grin and asks “Mama can you count to 100?”. I told AJ “why yes I can” and proceeded to count to 100. As my lips moved to form each number all the way up to 100, AJ moved his lips almost as if he was learning as I spoke the numbers!

AJ smiled as the numbers went higher and higher until I finally reached 100. He was so happy and it warmed my heart to see my little boy smile, AJ rarely smiles so a smile from him I cherish so much more than I would from a child who smiles all the time! Of course after I counted to 100 AJ says:

Mama how much is it to 200? Can you count to 200?

I laughed and said, yes I can count to 200 but let’s do that another night. Sweet dreams AJ, Mama loves you!

For Your Wellness

There are so many ways to help yourself be well, such as increasing Vitamin C which is something I do every year when Fall hits because with the change of seasons usually comes the cold season. Winter is on it’s way and I find myself wondering if I am getting enough of all the vitamins I need for my body. I know I should think of these things all the time, but I don’t.

For instance, bones can lose their funk as I like to call it and calcium along with something like Bio D-Mulsion will help with your bones. From what I researched your body needs a lot of Vitamin D and you can’t get enough of it from sun or milk alone! I feel lucky in that I am almost 29 years old and have never broken a bone. I also felt that my Great Grandmother who I call Grena never had broken a bone until her 80’s I believe. Seems as though Grena gets enough vitamin D or my family tends to have healthy bones on my mother’s side of the family. Either way, I am not risking that! No broken bones for this Mama.

What about protecting yourself from bacteria? Some research has suggested that Oregano Oil can help fight off, or be an effective treatment for drug-resistant bacteria. When I read about this all I could think of is how often pediatricians are quick to give children antibiotics which end up making some bacteria immuned to it. I have seen antiobiotics not touch my sons problems before and that’s scary. Oregano is natural so why not try some of the oil but be sure to research and take as recommended of course.

Now I am not a doctor, nor do I wish to be one, I am simply sharing some ideas with you that have crossed my mind. So what do you have for tips for natural remedies to help keep someone healthier?
