Internet Withdrawls

It's been a week now, and my baby is still in the shop. I should have went with MY computer guys, not my husband's friends. It was done within a day or two with them, but these guys sound like a bunch of potheads. They are a legitimate business though, and I'm saving $50, but I'm sitting here on his buddy's laptop questioning is that $50 REALLY worth it?!

I've dealt with withdrawals from depression medication and pain meds, but this has got to be far worse! I have enjoyed the extra time with my family. Caleb and me decided I wouldn't spend so much time online when my computer is fixed. His attitude has greatly improved this past week! I've figured out that I need to balance life a little better when I get my computer home.

I was seriously thinking of not coming back, I thought it would be nice to have all the free time I wanted. But, after a few days I realize why I do what it is I do. It's not a real job, but having to meet certain deadlines and a little paycheck every month sure did help in more ways than one.

I'm anxiously awaiting for my computer to be released. I've had to go through 4,000 emails since I haven't been online in so long. I can't wait to come back. Missing yall!


Technical Difficulties

My email account was hacked into over the weekend, and now my computer has shut down. My hubby's buddy is repairing it, and I'm on his laptop right now.

If there is any email from me-Kim@Mission Mommy or bkkihega(at) that seems weird, don't click on the links. I was alerted to this happening over the weekend, and just want you to know what's going on. I should be back by Wednesday!

Got Milk? Horizon Organic Chocolate Milk {Giveaway}

Horizon Organic lowfat chocolate milk provides a great tasting way to add calcium and DHA to your family's diet. DHA Omega-3 is an important nutrient that helps support heart, brain and eye health, and it¹s available in lowfat half gallons.

DHA is important right from the start of a baby's life. Pregnant mothers are encouraged to get the right amount, and it's vital in an infant's development. As your baby grows into a toddler, DHA is recommended for their fast growing minds and body. It's recommended that a healthy, active 3 year old get 150mg DHA daily. Unfortunately, most are only getting a small fraction (19mg) of what they need for optimal brain development.

Flavored milk provides the same essential nutrients as white milk, and can help meet your child's calcium requirements. In a study, 66% of school-age children choose flavored milk over plain. Horizon Organic Milk Plus DHA Omega-3 is fortified with a natural, 100 percent vegetarian and sustainable source of DHA - a safe, wholesome, delicious way to bring more of this important nutrient into your family's diet.

DHA belongs to a category of healthy fatty acids known as Omega-3's. Found in high concentrations in the tissues of the brain and eye, DHA Omega-3 is thought to help support healthy function in these areas. DHA has also been shown to help support heart health. Even as we get older, DHA continues to support our eye health, mental acuity, and heart health.

Two winners will win 4 coupons each- 2 for FREE half gallon of Horizon Organic chocolate milk, and 2 $1 off coupons as well). Here's how you can enter to win.  (Required Entry must be completed before any additional entries can be made.)

Required Entry: Visit Horizon Organic online and tell me something you have learned about DHA.

Pamper Him This Valentine's

Baby it's cold outside! Some parts of Texas received 5 inches of snow yesterday. We haven't gotten this much since I was a kid. It's not as fun now that I'm older, I'll tell you that! We want to stay warm and cozy at home this Valentine's Day and what better way to do so than with a gift of snuggly PJs?

Help your man relax and get cozy in the Karen Neuburger Long Sleeve Microfleece Henley Pajama Top and the KN pajama pants to match.  The soft fabric and button detailing will show him that you pay attention to his classic style while acknowledging his need for comfort.  Sit back, relax, and enjoy some movies by the fire this weekend!

Karen Neuburger Pajamas can be purchased online at for $34.
