For the past six years now, PlanToys has been one of my top favorite toy manufacturers. I’m a sucker for wooden toys. They’re green, cute and I like to picture my future grandchildren playing with the same toys their mom’s played with as kids. For over 30 years, PlanToys has

This post about shopping for energy providers is sponsored by Choose Energy; all opinions are 100% my own. Living in the desert, sometimes things are very backwards.  Like when I grew up back East, winter was the off-season.  We were all huddled inside while the snow covered the yard and
