Saturday Stumbles

Welcome to the weekend!! Very much looking forward to just chillin' (like a villian!) Not so much looking forward to the papers I brought home to grade. Ugh.

Chore Chart & Allowance for Pre-schoolers
My friend Mary has a great idea to teach your little ones the value of money.

Is Whitney Houston in Heaven?
I was glued to the computer screen last weekend watching the Whitney Houston funeral. Yep, all 4 hours of it. Such a sad thing that happened to her. This is an interesting article that also addresses how the church handles things that Whitney struggled with.

Cure for Itchy Legs

My body (at the ripe old age of 35) has fallen victim to yet another travesty...dry, itchy legs. This has NEVER been a problem with me. Ever. So imagine my shock when a few weeks ago I noticed after working out that my legs had begun to itch something awful. I gave it some time and it never went away. There were no scars or rashes really, just a very bad need to itch my legs and only my legs. I racked my brain to figure out this new dilemma. Poison Ivy? Bug bites? Nothing made sense because it was only my legs and just the bottom part.

Well, when I ran across this post by The Pioneer Woman, it was as if the Heavens had parted and the angels broke out in the Hallelujah chorus. I've only tried it once but I'm liking the results already. Any advice from my fellow itchy leggers out there?

Guess I'm kind of light on the stumbles this week. Probably because I couldn't pull myself away from scratching my legs raw long enough to read many blogs this week. Hopefully I'll have more next week! So until then, I'll just read all the good ones you all found! Link up below!

So it's the weekend of the big game! Do you have Super Bowl plans? I'm not really that in to football (although you probably can't tell by this post as it is mostly Super Bowl links!), but I'll probably flip over to see the national anthem and half time show!

Speaking of the "big game", did you know that there are so many rules and regulations of what you can and can't say? It's crazy!
"Don't Use Super Bowl..."

...and even rules on hosting a party!

One of the local radio stations here in town wrote about what they can and can not say.

Here's a little something for the kids:

And then, this one is totally random but I thought it was such a great idea!
