Jennifer is a one in a million stay-at-home mom. (More like one OF a million stay at home moms!) She graduated from a liberal arts college but there is nothing liberal OR artsy about her. She is married to Kevin Fischer of This Just In, and together they have a beautiful young daughter Kyla Audrey. In no particular order she loves dogs, wine, a good bargain, her family, pizza, and entertaining. Follow her blog of all things miscellaneous including but not limited to cooking and baking, entertaining and party planning, being a mommy, and homekeeping.

It's Labor Day. Whoopee.

It should come as no surprise that generally, I agree with my husband.  (Except when it comes to our love of the Fall season.  Or rather MY love of it.)

Moms of school-agers: Listen up!

There are many times I look around at women younger than me and around my age and think “What is WRONG with you?  Why is it that grannies battling arthritic joints and poor eyesight can do it but YOU can’t?”

What did Scott Walker do this week? (08/30/14)

What did Scott Walker do this week?





We begin with some announcements from Governor Walker. This first one is important because news reports the past few days have been inaccurate and misleading.

WI ends FY 14 with $445 million SURPLUS. We will end the 2013/2015 biennium with a balanced budget.

New numbers are in & total revenue collections are only off 1.98% from original estimates. State still ends with a balanced budget.

Rainy day fund is 165 times bigger than when we took office.

WI ranks 5th in the US for new manufacturing jobs (US BLS CES Dec. 2010 - July 2014)

People don't tell me that they send too little $ to Madison. That's why we sent more back to the hard working taxpayers.



Governor Walker joined the announcement of the partnership between The Water Council and JPMorgan Chase & Co. to invest a grant of $225,000 in water technology with the help of the Small Business Forward initiative. Over the next five years, JPMorgan Chase & Co. will provide $30 million in grants to support small business clusters throughout the nation that aid in stimulating certain industries.

President Obama is coming to Wisconsin


Please read this special message from our sponsor, Scott Walker for Governor.

Scott Walker: Conservative Governor



Friend,

President Obama is coming to Milwaukee on Labor Day and the political purpose is clear: Rally the troops to defeat me.

In a Governor's race that’s too-close-to-call, Democrats are hoping a presidential appearance tips the balance, makes the difference and makes their dream of defeating me come true.

The media circus will create a surge of propaganda for the Burke Democrats. Don't be surprised if the Democrats use the Obama visit to raise millions.

Every dollar will be transformed into TV attack ads that are long on lies and short on truth. We MUST fight back.





I Stand With Walker.


National Democrats are desperate to make an example of me for taking on the Big Government Labor Union Bosses. They will use President Obama's visit to Milwaukee to recruit armies of volunteers and generate a deluge of free publicity, and no doubt they'll be raising money too.

Friend, I have never needed your help as much as I do now. President Obama is arriving in 4 days. Election Day is in 68 days. We must act NOW!

Thanks for all that you do,

Scott Walker
Governor of Wisconsin

P.S. The stakes have now been raised in this race. I need your help more than ever. Say "NO" to President Obama and the Big Government Labor Union Bosses and fight back with me today!
