March 2017 - My WAHM Plan

The Underground Culinary Tour by Damien Mogavero book review


We live south of the newest “IT” city, Nashville Tennessee. Our local news station has a series on the boom in growth Nashville is having and one of the most interesting area of growth to me is the plethora of new places to eat. From fine dining to food trucks; Nashville is making a name for itself as a foodie city

The Gospel of Mark DVD Giveaway

Spring is knocking on the door here, not only in the beautiful Tennessee landscape I adore, but in my heart as well. To me, spring is always a time of renewal, reflection and rebirth. As a Christian family, it is an important time in our lives with Lent and soon, Easter. I'm glad I was given the opportunity to share a Christian based movie with you today.


This is a sponsored post on behalf of Review Wire Media for The Lumo Project. I received information to facilitate my review and will receive a copy of movie to thank me for my participation.


I am really excited to have an opportunity to watch The Gospel of Mark, but as luck would have it, my package hasn't arrived yet. Since the movie became available March 14th, I'm choosing to host my giveaway first and come back and share my review later.

3 Free gardening apps to try this spring


I am counting down the days until spring officially arrives later this month. I know I’m not alone in this count- down to March 20th.  My friends and I are watching for and taking note of all the markers that spring is on its way.  Here in the south, there is a riot of beautiful Daffodils in yards everywhere, the Tulip trees are blooming and the Bradford Pear trees are budding.  Since we gardeners are in a bit of a holding pattern for now, I thought I’d share 3 free (and fun!) gardening apps I’m going to try out this spring to help us pass the time until we can really get out there and garden!




3 free gardening apps to try this spring




1. My first app choice will help all of us who have ever walked through a park or lovely garden setting and thought what is that flower? Aptly named- What’s that flower, this app will help you identify flowers by color, habitat, and even number of petals. Cool right? 




What's that flower app

What’s that flower app will narrow down your options to a couple dozen, and then you just scroll through that list until you find the right flower.  Once your flower is found, you can read about it and see if it will work in your garden space/home. Android users can download app here This app isn’t available on IOS yet, so I suggest trying Garden Answers app. It looks like it has similar features. Download here.





DIY Gardening Tiips App



2. My second app just may add a serious amount of phone time to my schedule because it covers so many topics I find interesting. The DIY Gardening Tips app helps you find great gardening and DIY tips that you can easily use.  Plus it has tons of useful information for vegetable gardens, something I want to explore more this year. There’s tips on flowers and herbs and even garden design!  This app is available for Android here and IOS here





BeeSmart app




3. My third choice is Bee Smart App.  In a time when our bee populations are dwindling at an alarming rate, I know all gardeners share my concern and passion to help aide the bee by planting flowers and shrubs they like. What attracted me (pun intended) to this app was their mission statement: The BeeSmart™ Pollinator Gardener is your comprehensive guide to selecting plants for pollinators specific to your area. Never get caught wondering what plants to buy again! I like the sound of that and it looks so easy to use. Just plug in your zip code and hit enter! If you want to get bees, hummingbirds and butterflies in your garden this spring, download Bee Smart here for Android and here for IOS. 




I hope you'll give at least one of 3 free gardening apps a try this spring. If you do, please come back here and let me know your thoughts in comments and be sure to share a gardening app you like in comments too!


 Which app do you think you are mostly likely to try and why?
