Fort Concho Karate in need of Donations

Fort Concho Karate in need of donations to 
supply a raffle or silent auction
request from Tara:

Fort Concho Karate is in San Angelo, Texas. We are a low-cost karate program that meets at the Fort Concho Elementary gym thanks to the principal, Lori Barton. It costs $10 per month per student with no belt fees, and the fourth student from any family attends for free. We never turn anyone away for the inability to pay. The Fort Concho Open is the name of the tournament. We are holding it to raise funds for the program so that we can buy more equipment for the class. It will be held August 18. Anyone who is interested can contact us through our facebook page at Facebook.com/FCKarate or by e-mail to fortconchokarate@gmail.com. I am looking for any kind of item to go into a raffle or silent auction. I am happy to set out literature from any business/blog that donates to help spread the word about the venture.

Riley passed away earlier this year just before his 20th birthday from cancer. He had been a student of my husband's since he was 12 years old. He went to the hospital one day because he was not feeling well. He had just started a new job and did not yet have health coverage. The doctors discovered he had cancer in his abdomen and scheduled surgery for him. When the operation took place, the doctors realized that it was advanced past what they could care for here in San Angelo and had him airlifted to a larger hospital in San Antonio, Texas, where he had another operation. Unfortunately, his body began to shut down and within two weeks of his first hospital visit he passed away.  His brother still attends classes with us, so we see his parents twice a week.  We know the bills are overwhelming, and we want to help our own as much as we can.

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner

I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days.


My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But after…
