Great Friends, Good Times & Giving Back with Post Bowls of Hope #PostCFK

I am truly fortunate to have a great group of friends here in Jonesboro.  When I moved here over a year ago, I had no idea that I would develop such great friendships. I've made friends that I can truly depend on and our friendships will last a lifetime.  We each come from a different backgrounds but the one thing we have in common is our awareness and understanding of the needs of our community.  So when I approached the girls about participating in the Post Bowls of Hope Simple Service … Read More>

Are You Ready For Some Football – NCAA Football 13

You could say we're college football fanatics.  My husband?  He loves his Buckeyes.  All his siblings went to THE Ohio State University and every year I have to hear about how they are going to be Big 10 Champions.  My step-son, well he loves his Oklahoma Sooners.  He's lived in Tulsa for the past 10 years so he's been brainwashed.  Me?  I grew up in Iowa so I'm a Hawkeye fan.  Now my team hasn't been as successful as the Buckeyes and Sooners but nonetheless, I always cheer for the Hawks.  As … Read More>

Moms Night Out For A Cause #PostCFK

The majority of our kids look forward to summer time.  Summer times means no school, no going to bed early and being able to play outside until the sun goes down.
