Fresh Kisses Dog Chews

As a #ChewyInfluencer, we are privileged each month to try a dog food or treat that Hunter has not had before. Although he is only 6, I've noticed some tarter on his front teeth so I decided to give these chews a try.  They are the perfect size for Hunter and I'm happy to say that my picky dog loves them; if they help his teeth, it's a win-win situation.
Look how small they are-I choose the x-small size; they are infused with Mint-Flavored Breath Strips, something he really needed.

He loves dancing for his Chewy treats.

Here is the description from
"Share even closer cuddles with your furry one with the Merrick Fresh Kisses Double-Brush Mint Breath Strips Grain-Free Dental Dog Treats. This uniquely designed treat has a double-brush action and a special blend of alfalfa extract and natural spearmint oil to help keep teeth clean, fight plaque and tartar, and freshen breath. It’s packed with fresh breath strip pieces throughout for an extra boost of freshness with every bite. The grain-free formula is easily digestible since it’s made with natural peas and gelatin with no potatoes or anything artificial. Perfectly sized for any sized dogs, it’s safely cooked in the USA without any grains, gluten, corn, soy, or artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives.

Key Benefits

  • Helps clean teeth, fight plaque and tartar, and freshen doggy breath with unique shape and natural formula.
  • Designed with a double-brush action to get in between teeth and help keep them clean with every bite.
  • Infused with breath strip pieces throughout that are made with all natural spearmint oil to keep breath even fresher.
  • It’s easily digestible since it’s made with natural peas, alfalfa, tapioca and gelatin, with no potatoes or grains.
  • Sized for large dogs that are over 50 pounds, and are made in the USA with no grains, gluten, corn, soy, or artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. "

WE have purchased many Merrick products-either kibble, canned food, freeze dried treats and now this. I love that this company is in Texas and that these are grain and potato free.  Recently, it's come to my attention that potatoes and sweet potatoes are highly allergic and so I've eliminated all from Hunter's food as well.
Hunter and I are sending a big thank you to Miss Natalie and the entire Chewy staff for their excellent products and customer service.  Whenever I have a concern or question, Miss Natalie always takes the time to investigate and get me the correct answer.
We received this product free of charge from Chewy, in exchange for our honest opinion.
You can find Chewy here:
Your pup is sure to love these treats.
Hunter and Noreen,  #ChewyInfluencer

Love of Family

Happy Monday to you! I hope you had a wonderful, relaxing weekend and are refreshed for this new day. I can tell you that I could spend the rest of the week posting photos from my brother and sil's 50th Anniversary Party. However, I decided to share the best of the best-our family, many branches but so much love.  Here is my big brother with our two oldest grandsons;  Mr. J is on the far right and will turn 17 in a week, Mr. B is 14.  We couldn't be prouder of them.
All the guys in the family, with little man on his dad's hip.  Both son-in-laws are amazing men and possess many of the same traits as my hubby and big brother.
My brother and sister of my heart, seated in the front row. A couple of the cousins switched sides and blend in perfectly.  What Love the Father has given us!
All the girls in the family.  Seeing these photos makes my heart soar.
On the left, top row is Kim's oldest Miss S. has gotten taller than me and is ready to show up her mama and her aunt.   From left to right, top row-Kim, her oldest Miss S, myself, Sue, Carrie.
Next row is Miss M or Peanut, Miss O- who is Carrie's second daughter, Miss F-Carrie's oldest girl.
Bottom row:  Miss E-Carrie's youngest, Miss D-Kim's third daughter, Miss A-Kim's fourth daughter and Miss A-Carrie's third daughter.
50 yrs of marriage, such an accomplishment.  They have been roll models to hubby& me and also to our daughters and their hubby's as well as our grands.

Carrie and Brent-amazing people, family, parents, siblings!  Most of all, such a godly couple.
Hard to believe hubby and I will celebrate 40 years this June.  Where has the time gone.
Kim and Eric~so much love, joy and fun.  When Eric and Brent get together, watch out for there is sure to be some mischief happening.  Kim and Eric are also incredible examples of a godly individuals, a couple, siblings and parents.  So proud of both couples!

God has richly blessed me; I can't thank Him enough for each person in these photos.
Joy to you!

Winter is Back

Happy Friday to you!  Yesterday was very, very cold but at least sunny and bright.  We still have several feet of snow on the ground and the roads resemble what happens in March-lots of slush.  Today started out bright and sunny, but after our mini group finished our coffee time it was clouding up.  I stopped at the store on the way home from coffee and then after unloading the groceries, we had lunch and played cards.  When we are both home for lunch we have three games we play-Cribbage, Euchre and Golf.  After that we went to the gym and worked out.  Right now the clouds are rolling in and it is supposed to snow this afternoon, night and tomorrow.  I'll be downstairs, but had to jump on here first.  This weekend will be pretty relaxed; the only thing happening tomorrow is that a friend is having three gals over for lunch.  I am taking an Angle Food Cake, Strawberries and Whipped Cream.  I got a gluten free cheesecake for myself, so will take a small piece to have-they wanted me to have a dessert I could enjoy as well-it's easier for me to take something I like and have their choice for them.
I just want to encourage anyone out there who works out-either at a gym, walking, riding or whatever~if you feel like you aren't getting any stronger or better, you probably are and just don't realize it.  I had felt that way before Christmas and yesterday took out my chart from when I first joined our gym and met with a trainer.  I couldn't believe how much I've progressed on weights; I am feeling better about going three days a week now.  Hubby says he can see it-my pants are loose and my arms much tighter.  So I shared this to encourage you not to give up or if you've stopped to start back up again.  I wish I would have started this 10 yrs ago and maybe I wouldn't have had some of the issues with my health that I've had.
Whatever you are doing this weekend, I wish you joy!

Thursday, February 22, 2018

Happy Thursday to you; today is a day I want to share just how thankful I am for these three loved ones.  More photos from our Anniversary Celebration will be here soon, but for now I just want to proclaim how thankful I am and our family is for my brother Richard and his beautiful bride Susan.  Sue is the sister of my heart; they have always been so incredibly loving and giving, not only to me but to our family.  We could never say thank you enough.  Even this party, celebrating their 50th anniversary had extra touches to bless us.  One of the best parts of the evening is when my hubby hosted the Newlywed Game for them.  They were even presented with a certificate from Guinness World Records stating they were the oldest couple to play the Newlywed Game.  The family couldn't believe just how perfect hubby played the role of the host.  We even had prizes that we had selected just for them, in case they won.  Several times the prizes were taken away, because they kept missing the questions.  This was the beginning of the game and there were more surprises as it started.
I am married to the most wonderful man who delights me so often.  He is an incredibly patient man(has to be to be married to me), gentle, understanding, funny, a great father and grandfather and a friend to many.  So thankful to have married him.
I look forward to sharing many of the moments with you here.
May you bless others today.

A Good Movie

Happy Wednesday to all of you.  Yesterday was a cold day and we couldn't find anything to do, so we went to the movies.  In years past, we always would hit a Tuesday matinee-they are cheap and it gives us an outlet in winter.  This winter has been relatively mild until Monday's storm; we weren't sure what to see, but decided on  The 15:17 to Paris.  It is a true story and the three men whom the story is about played themselves, as well as several others on the train.  The story starts out with the men as young adolescents who have a hard time finding their way.  Later they are grown men on a vacation in Europe when a train is hijacked.  It was a great story about three Americans and another man stepping up and stopping more bloodshed.  If you are housebound due to weather, you might find it a great movie.  Hubby wasn't too sure about whether he'd like it or not, but he did.  Unfortunately we found out too late that our oldest grandson wants to see it and would have loved to have gone with us.  I told Carrie that her hubby needs to take the boys to see it.
I'm going over to hang out at Kim's house for a bit and then we will be heading to Carrie's to look at photos from my brother & sil's anniversary party.  We are putting together a book for them, plus I'll get one for us too.
Hope you have a bit of sunshine today...if not make your own with smiles.

Old Man Winter

Happy Tuesday to you. Yesterday the tease of spring was over and Old Man Winter returned. It started snowing lightly in the morning, as you can see from this photo. It was light and easy to remove. It snowed all day long.
This is about mid day, burr. It continued to snow, although very lightly and the flakes kept getting bigger.
Hubby went out three times yesterday to shovel, the last time being at 8:00 p.m. last night. We knew it was supposed to snow until this morning and he felt that going out in the evening would make it easier this morning. This is our backyard this morning. A neighbor texted yesterday afternoon that we had gotten at least 4" of snow. I'd say the total was somewhere closer to 6" by this morning. Thankfully it is really dry and so easier to shovel and sweep.
Hubby even went out last night and swept the stairs for Hunter and cleared his path to the lawn, plus cleared a large patch of grass for him. Today will be a relaxed day again; we are going to the movies this afternoon to see The 15-17 To Paris, it's looks so good and the real men are playing themselves.
 I love the beauty of the snow, but I am feeling ready for spring. I heard from a blogger who lives up in the mountains that they weren't getting any and they need it desperately. KB, if I could send it up your way, I would.
I hope you are able to get outside and enjoy the beauty of your area today.

Happy President's Day to you all.  I was downstairs working on machine appliqué and realized I hadn't posted yet...that seems to be a theme with me lately.  I hope you all had a great weekend; it was beautiful here, sunny and bright, but oh so windy!!!  Not to much to report on-saw the family for a game night Saturday and then yesterday had church, ran to Macy's and Kohl's and just kicked back. We watched the Olympics last night and are really enjoying them.
Due to the snowy weather today, we had a relaxed morning and then ran to the gym.  I can honestly say hubby and I are noticing the difference on me and I once again upped my weights by 5 pounds and felt good.  Today the upright bikes were in use, so I used a reclining bike and can say it works out my thighs so much more-this is probably what I'll use in the future.  So after lunch I got the sheets of out of the dryer, made the bed and headed downstairs.  We are supposed to get heavier snow this afternoon and tonight, so we'll once again have a quiet evening.  Tomorrow will be the same.
I hope you are having a productive day, regardless of the weather.  Do you remember when we had both Lincoln's Day and Washington's Day off decades ago?
Looking forward to April and Kauai.

I'm Thankful For...

Happy Friday to you all. It is a gorgeous day here in northern Colorado, a bit brisk but sunny and clear. Somehow yesterday just flew by as I was working on a new quilt square and never sat down here. This morning hubby and I went to the gym and worked out, ran a couple of errands and then a neighbor and I went out to lunch. She and her hubby are moving in April to Florida, so we needed to catch up and see how things are going with their move. So today as I count my many, many blessings I count grace that saved me as #1, hubby at the top, my family, pets and friends next.  Health is a big one...being able to go to the gym and work out whenever I want. As it is, I try my best to make it three times a week and occasionally four. I am thankful for being able to utilize weight machines and a bike, as well as walk when I can. With spring around the corner, I'm hoping my close friends on the block and myself will begin walking daily. I am so thankful that last summer I got my new sewing machine and it has made machine appliqué darn right fun! I had never gotten into it before because both of my other machines lacked a blanket stitch. Now that I've found out how easy it is, watch out. Another thing I am thankful for is that our daughter's family dog Copper, better known as Moose in our house, is going to be having puppies in April.  Here she is back a year ago...she is a beauty~a Red Parti Standard Poodle and has such an incredible temperament!  She is gentle with kids and family dogs alike, smart and so willing to please.  In fact, I've never had a family dog that wanted so much to please you.
Here she was as a puppy-probably 6 months old.
The stud is a Red Standard as well, bigger than Copper who is only about 40 lbs and has a similar temperament.  It will be such a fun experience for the family to have the pups and raise them until they find their forever home.  If Copper was a bit smaller, we would probably get one, but as we get older I just get concerned about handling a bigger dog.  Before we got Hunter, I seriously talked with a breeder about a miniature Poodle; in fact, I would take a medium size Poodle as well-which run about 25-30 lbs.  So we are very thankful that they have this opportunity and that Mr. B will begin his  life skills that will hopefully lead him into being a Vet Tech or eventually Vet School.
I'm heading back downstairs now to continue on with another block for my wall hanging-it will be quintessential me.  You will just have to wait and see it when it's done.
Hope you have a fantastic weekend!

Happy Valentine's Day

From my heart and home to you and yours, Happy Valentine's Day. This is the second year in a row that I've hosted our girls lunch and craft. It was fun planning what craft we'd do. The girls all drew names of their cousins to make lunch for and it was such a treat to see what they made. There were yogurt parfaits, sandwiches, cheese and meat with crackers. Kim brought a lovely salad and rolls for Carrie, herself and me; I supplied hot apple cider and blueberry tea in English Tea Cups. Each lunch that the girl made included a dessert and I supplied some Hail Mary Coconut mini cakes(in case you haven't heard of these, they are gluten and dairy free and so good).  Here is the table setting; aren't our granddaughters cute!
They made beaded hearts, either on pipe cleaners or jewelry wire.  A variety of sized hearts were made~the original idea was to hang them from a window, but some made bracelets or headbands. I love seeing how creative each girl is.

All the decorations; I love having days like this.
I'm off now to a friend's home so she can help me with an issue on my latest quilt.  Hubby and I will go out for Chinese food tonight.
I hope you had a day filled with love.

Finally Finished

Happy Tuesday to you all. A year and a half ago, hubby and I spent a week in Redmond Oregon with our best friends and traveling companions. Barbara and I had so wanted to attend the Sister's Quilt Show and take some classes; we had a ball! One of the classes we took was with Rob Appell-aka Man Sewing associated with Missouri Star Quilt Company. It was a fun class and he is a hoot. I came home and finished the top, but it sat until last summer when I began quilting it by hand. While it has taken me that long to quilt it, it was such a fun finish. Hubby decided I had put too much quilting on it, but it was a once in a lifetime class, so why not?!  I renamed it Ocean Blue, because it reminds me so much of Kauai.
The back is a batik and fits perfectly with the name.

There were three quilt patterns I used and I feel like one more project is off of my shoulders.  The only thing I didn't realize until taking the photos was that my border had rippling, which really disappointed me(but in reality it won't matter when someone is snuggled under it).  I have learned since then to measure your borders carefully before attaching-so hope I don't make that mistake again.  Hubby and I loved the colors and it will always remind me of being with loved ones.
Hope your day is going well.
Joy to you!

Special Treats from Miss Natalie at Chewy

It was such a surprise on Friday when Hunter announced the Fed-Ex guy was here; Hunter knows that means something wonderful from Chewy. As a #ChewyInfluencer we get some goodie once a month and it seemed too early for his monthly treat. However, Chewy so values their members in the blogging program and we were hand picked to try these delectable treats. Wow is all I can say, besides a huge thank you to Miss Natalie. You are the best! Hunter loves chicken jerky and I always order his from Chewy. His favorites have been True Chews and he loves all their flavors.
When I opened the bag, I couldn't believe how much is smelled like human grade jerky.  Can you see Hunter's nose in the left hand corner; he knows the smell and is very happy.
Hunter immediately took the chew and quickly ate it.

He loves them!  I like them because they are all Natural, made in the USA, with no fillers, grains, by- products or artificial preservatives, colors or flavors.    They contain only have six natural ingredients in them-a plus now that Hunter has developed allergies.
He rates them four paws and his cousin Lily also rates them four paws; yesterday she was here for the day and always wants some of Hunter's treats.
Thank you Miss Natalie and all the staff at Chewy for surprising us with this new product.

A grateful Noreen and Happy Hunter

Happy Friday!  It has been in the low 30's today and is so cold and dreary out. Lots of Hoary Frost on the trees as well; we are supposed to get snow tonight and tomorrow, so I'm planning on sewing.  After my mini quilt group today, hubby and I went out and found a refrigerator on sale(beat all the local prices) for President's Day.  It wasn't our first choice-most of those were on back order until May and we need one asap.  This morning when I came out, I heard this humming noise and it was our fridge-oh my.  Thankfully nothing was leaking and the fridge was still working.  Our new one will be here on Monday and we are hoping it lasts for many years.  I did some reading this week and read that most refrigerators only last 6-9 years now.  The one thing I need to think through is that it is so nice and new, I'm not sure I want to put on our white board calendar on it...that might have to be moved to another area.  We'll see.  I love having our calendar right where we can see it; that way I don't forget dates.
We started watching the Olympics last night-mainly figure skating and also Curling.  Can't wait to see the opening ceremonies tonight.  Right now I am so tired that I could take a short nap, due partially to cutting back on caffeine, but don't think I will.
Sending hugs your way.

If It's Not One Thing...

Good afternoon friends.  I hope your week has gone good and that you are finding some time to enjoy the little things in life.  Well a couple of weeks ago hubby discovered our freezer wasn't cold~so we did all the things that Samsung told us to do, you know unplug it and then plug it in again.  No luck: thankfully we have another side by side in the basement, so all our frozen food got stuffed into it.
Today hubby had a repair come out to take a look and we got bad news-the compressor is gone.  It would take as much to get  a new one as it would to get a new refrigerator.  He also told hubby that he does the most repairs on Samsung-good to know, but very disappointing.  So after lunch, we headed out to see what kind of deals there are out there.  Ugh.  WE did find out some info about GE-they have sold their appliances to a company in China.  So that ruled this brand out.  We have also heard horror stories from our neighbors about their Frigidair French Door freezer not cooling and have have had multiple service calls on it...hum, guess that one is out.  So we've narrowed it down to LG, either side by side or French Door or maybe if we can find a deal a KitchenAid.  Hopefully, tomorrow or on the weekend we will get out and look or wait until Presidents Day sales.  Our compressor is heating up, so we will need to get a new fridge pretty soon-don't want any fires.
So if it's not one thing, it's another; at least we got four years out of this current fridge.  I'm also looking at the smudge proof finish-I get tired of polishing the original stainless steel.
I may or may not be back here tomorrow.
Hugs and blessings.

Happy Tuesday to you all.  I got this pic from my oldest girl~Lily is laying on top of Copper; what makes it so funny is that Copper(hard to see here on the brown blanket) is sound asleep.  You know you've got a well adjust pack when this can happen.  Love these two pups!
Hope you have a great day!

Happy Monday to you all.  I was planning on having photos to share here today with  you, but with all the excitement of the weekend I totally forgot to take photos of our dinner on Friday night.  I can tell you it was so delightful and worth every cent.  We started out the dinner with appetizers-my brother and I shared a dish of Beet Raviolis-but they weren't raviolis's they were cooked beets sliced very thin with goat cheese in the middle.  My hubby hates beets and he tried a bite and said it was good-mainly because of the goat cheese.  My sil and hubby share Paprika Prawns and loved them.  We then had a salad followed by the main course.  My sil, hubby and myself had Scallops that were cooked perfectly and my brother had salmon.  It was a great restaurant and the staff was so attentive.
We were driving home and I exclaimed-I forgot to take photos of the dishes.  Ugh.  This is such a fine dining experience that we will probably go back on a very special occasion, but it isn't someplace we'd normally go.
Saturday morning was relaxed, we hit the gym and had a great afternoon.  Our banquet was an incredible evening.  The room was decorated nicely for the 50th Anniversary and the dinner was delicious.  My brother and sister of my heart renewed their vows before dinner, then we had lots of family photos.  After dinner, unbeknownst to them, my hubby had made up a Newlywed Game.  He did such a good job on it and we even had gifts.  I never knew my hubby would be the perfect game host.   We had more toasts to the special couple and had wonderful desserts.  Yesterday mid day my brother and sil arrived; we had lunch and got snacks ready for Superbowl and we were able to take them to a local site that had several trees with Bald Eagles.  We counted a total of nine; we were advised to keep our distance and we didn't want to disturb these beauties.  As we were leaving though, what to my horror did I see but a woman with a camera right under the tree throwing rocks up to get the eagles to fly away.  I almost got out to tell you to stop, but hesitated. She then continued walking on.

The rest of the family came over to watch the Superbowl-what a good game. We were on pins and needles the entire time and we so thrilled at the ending. The girls & their families left and we had dinner and then watched the end of the game. It was such a fun time! Today was a quiet easy morning with them packing up; they fly out tomorrow but head down to the airport so they are there early and without worry of traffic. We love my brother and sister of my heart and are always sorry to see them go. We will be out in Ca. at the end of June for a week and will get to spend several days with them. They spoil us all so much.
 I hope you had a great weekend.

Friday, February 2, 2018

Happy Friday to you!  More than half of my day has slipped away, without my getting here.
This morning we took Hunter to the groomer and then came home to work on some projects.  My brother and sil are here to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary; while they've been working on the celebration and dinner at a hotel, we've been working on some fun ways to celebrate them.  I can't say what, because she will probably see this.  For Christmas the family gave them a gift card to a very fancy restaurant and tonight hubby and I are joining them, beginning the festivities early.  Tomorrow evening we will meet them at there hotel and they will begin by renewing their vows.  Isn't that so incredible!  After the vows, we will have dinner and then continue to celebrate them.  We've even hired a professional photographer to capture everything for us.  Whenever they are here for a visit, we love each minute spent with them.  Sunday we will have them here at our house-spending more family time, watching the Super Bowl and spoiling them until they leave on Monday.  I can tell you are kids and grands love them to pieces and enjoy every minute spent with them.  I didn't have that type of relationship with my aunts or uncles and it is so special.  I will make sure to take pictures of tonight's dinner and of course tomorrow.  I was also able to finish applying pieces to my Easter wall hanging; I can tell you I loved using the blanket stitch on my machine-it was such fun.
Hunter seems to be having an issue with food allergies lately and I once again ended up at the pet store getting him something that is grain free to try.
I hope you have a great weekend and enjoy the game on Sunday.'

Out Of The Ashes Review

If  you love historical fiction and Alaska, this book is for you!  Out of the Ashes is book two in the Heart of Alaska series, following the authors first book in the series In The Shadow of Denali.  I have thoroughly enjoyed Tracie Peterson and Kimberley Woodhouse's books and this one was just as great as the first in this series.  I love Alaska and once again found myself wanting to go back and see the beauty of the state.

Here is a short description of the story from the author:
"After the death of their father, Collette and Jean-Michel Langelier are no longer tied to post-war France. While his sister dreams of adventure, Jean-Michel is hoping to finally escape reminders of the horrors he faced in the war. When Jean-Michel receives an unexpected invitation for them to visit Alaska and the Curry Hotel, it seems an opportunity for a change he needs.
Katherine Demarchis is a young widow who does not grieve the dangerous husband she was forced to marry. Now she just wants to retreat to a quiet life, content to be alone. First, though, she’s agreed to accompany her grandmother on a final trip, but never expects to see a man from her past.
Katherine and Jean-Michel once shared a deep love that was torn apart by forces beyond their control. Reunited now, have the years changed them too deeply to rediscover what they had? And when Jean-Michel’s nightmares return with terrifying consequences, will faith be enough to heal what’s been broken for so long?"

What I enjoyed so much about this story is that both Katherine and Jean-Michel carry deep wounds and must choose the path of healing.  They both must find their way to a faith, in a loving God and in each other.  I didn't want to put this book down and rate it a 10 star.  My only hope it that they continue to write more in this series.  
As a member of Bethany House blogger program, I received a free copy of this book from Bethany House, a division of Baker Publishing.  No review, positive or otherwise, was required; all opinions are my own.  
You can find this book and others here:
