Today we are spending the day as a family. It's our last official day with all 4 of us living of under one roof. Hubs is not coming on our road trip with us.

Tomorrow we hit the road for our adventure to the wild west. So it's B-Dude's farewell to his dad and our last day to enjoy … [Read more...]

Lunatic’s Top 10 Ice Cream Recipes for Ice Cream Sundays

ice cream

A little over a week till we leave for vacation. I think I've got my ducks in a row. But then we always think we do right, then we get 2 days from home and realize we forgot the memory cards or enough undergarments or things like that. I've made my check lists. I'm checking them twice. I figure that's how Santa finds out who is naughty or nice. So in theory it should work for me too. Wish me luck I don't end up on the naughty list for forgetting something, um, vital. *blushes* Well since it's … [Read more...]

Ben & Jerry’s invites the Lunatic to #ScoopMoovement

Ben and Jerry's Truck Tour

Let me just start off by saying I am still pinching myself over this one. I received an email in early June with this in the subject line: Ben & Jerry's Invites you to Scoop Moovement at NXNE" I honestly thought it was a joke. One of my fellow bloggers pulling my leg. A family member being funny. An old boyfriend pulling a fast one as some kind of revenge or something. So first I passed out, then I returned the email. I am so glad I did. Let me just say when Ben & Jerry's invites … [Read more...]
