I Have Just Opened my First Ever Artfire Shop!

The Perfect Place for Bears to Eat


Looking for a great place to eat a yummy meal with your bear cubs? Look no further than the Black Bear Diners. You can find them in Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Arizona, and Colorado. We ate at the Black Bear Diner in Monterey this past weekend, and really enjoyed everything...from the newspaper style menu, to the kid's fish sticks, which were the best I've ever had, to the bear decor everywhere! I mean, I AM Mama Bear, right? We definitely felt right at home. I love the carved wooden bears everywhere, and they even have a great little gift shop.

Their menu has a large array of items to choose from, including healthier choices for the dieters or health conscious bears. We were SO full from our meal that we didn't get to indulge in any of the desserts, but from the looks of the dessert case, we might just have to visit the Black Bear Diner JUST for dessert! Bear claws filled with seasonal fruit fillings, thick handmade milkshakes, bread pudding, blackbeary shakes, and Grandma's Fresh Baked Cobblers. And that's only HALF of the dessert menu!

So whether you're in the mood for breakfast (which is served all day!), lunch, dinner, or just dessert, be sure to stop by and visit the folks at the Black Bear Diners. You'll be glad you did!

Oh, and yes, they DO have a website! It's www.BlackBearDiner.com.

Win a UV Skinz Shirt of Your Choice!


Frugal Mommy of 2 Girls is hosting a giveaway for a UV Skinz shirt of the winner's choice. I LOVE these shirts! I have one for myself and one for Baby Bear. Brother Bear has one from a different company. These are great because you can really save on the amount of sunscreen you use! Our family goes lake camping every year for about 4 days, and when you're at the lake 1/2 the day, you'll want a UV Skinz shirt, so that you don't have to constantly re-apply the sunscreen everywhere.

So click on over to Frugal Mommy and enter to win! But hurry! The giveaway ends today!
