Amazing How Fast the Weather Changes

We were hit by a blizzard Thursday night into Friday. The storm “Hercules” dumped a foot of snow in our area, and created big snow drifts.

The temperature was freezing the the single digits with wind chills below zero.

Today is Monday and the temperature is 50 degrees with rain, and the foot of snow is almost gone.

These was taken yesterday afternoon while my kids were playing



Then this morning, in the same spot.


Amazing how fat everything changes. Then again tomorrow we go back down to single digits.

The Leaves Are Everywhere

Fall is here and we have leaves all over our backyard. The kids love to make big leaf piles and jump in it.

Just a note, he is fine. A leaf stem touched his ear and he freaked. LOL!

Grilling Just got easier with Jacks Pizza

Disclosure: No compensation was received, a coupon was provided for product. All opinions are my own.


I grill just about everyday during the summer, it keeps the house cool and there is less dishes later.   I never knew that you could grill a frozen pizza, but now you can.

It’s so simple to do too.

  1. Just heat the grill to 400, grills will vary.
  2. then place the pizza on the grill and close the lid.
  3. let it cook for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted.

You the have a perfect crunchy pizza to enjoy.

I thought this was so great, I don’t have to worry about the house getting to hot from the oven.

No Time Mommy

No Time Mommy

My grill is really old so it’s a bit hard to keep teh right temperature, specially with the lid closed. So my pizza came out really crispy and a bit black, but it still tasted really good.



Jacks Pizza is having a giveaway where you can win a backyard makeover. Enter here and find out more about Jacks Pizza.

Have you ever made a pizza on the grill before?
