Back To Calorie Counting – My 3 Favorite Resources

About 3 years ago I lost nearly 25 pounds by watching my calories. In the past 6-9 months, I’ve still tried to watch what I eat somewhat, but I haven’t actually counted calories. We’ve had a few stressful life events that caused us to put healthy eating on the back burner. I’ve gained about 10 pounds back from the lowest weight I maintained – or about 13 pounds back from the lowest weight I ever saw on the scale. It’s … Read the rest

Memory Card Won’t Stay In Camera SD Slot {How I Fixed it}

DSLR memory card camera slot problem

There are affiliate links in this post.

I had my first little panic with my Nikon D3400 DSLR camera since I purchased it about six months ago. I went to take photos one day, and my camera said there was no memory card. I thought I had placed it in there, so I opened the slot and yep – it was there. Except the card was slightly popped out, not locked in. I pushed it in, expecting the sd slot … Read the rest

Animal Crossing Pocket Camp Update Error Check Store Update To Latest Version Problem

One of the games I love to play on my iPad is Animal Crossing Pocket Camp. I’ve gotten an update to latest version error on pocket camp many times in the few months that I have played the game. I get stuck in a loop between being told to check store, and then once in the store, it tells me the app recently updated and it does not show any update as available. I just loop between the two, seemingly … Read the rest

I Don’t Understand Catelynn & Tyler Baltierra Haters Because…

I’m roughly the same age as the girls on Teen Mom OG. I’ve watched the show since about season two, I think? At 26, I’m mildly embarrassed to still be watching the show, especially because almost all other MTV shows feel so childish to me now…but oh well.

I’ve noticed the last season or so that Catelynn and Tyler are getting a lot more ‘hate’ from people online. For a long time they were viewed as one of the more … Read the rest

Why I Watch Sister Wives

There is an affiliate link in this post.

I watch a handful of reality TV shows. All reality TV shows seem to have a certain amount of hate-followers. It feels t me that the disgust for Sister Wives is more common than the other shows I watch. The most common complaint I see is that the husband is ‘creepy’. I’ve never found him creepy. He’s certainly quirky, and I’ve definitely cringed a time or two. The worst by far was … Read the rest

Saving On Amazon – My #1 Tip

I sometimes get compensated for working with brands through Amazon gift cards. As a result, I do a lot of shopping on Amazon. I’ve been an Amazon Prime member since around 2011 I believe. The convenience of having items delivered to my home in 2-3 days from the time of order is just so convenient.

I like feeling like I’m saving money though, and it can be tough to save money on Amazon as they rarely offer coupons. When they … Read the rest

YouTube Videos That Help You Understand Others

I’ve always been drawn to memoirs. I find myself better able to understand others when I can try to see things from their point of view. Reading a general text book about history has never been as impactful as reading an individual account of someone who survived that period of history. I guess it’s just how my mind works.

If you’re like me and enjoy learning about other people and their struggles and successes through first-hand accounts, YouTube can be … Read the rest

Amazon Prime Dog Treat Sample Box Review

I like how Amazon has been offering sample boxes to Prime members. You have to pay for the box upfront, but you get a credit on your account for the price of the box. I purchased a dog food and treats sample box in the past, and this new one was simply called dog treat sample box, though it included some food as well. The box costs $11.99 and in return you’ll get a $11.99 credit to spend on pet … Read the rest
