Inspirational Quotes to Celebrate National Women's History Month

March 8th is recognized International Women's Day.

The 2018 Theme for National Women’s History Month is “Nevertheless, She Persisted: Honoring Women Who Fight All Forms of Discrimination Against Women.”

"She Persisted".  Sound familiar? 

This year the National Women's History Project has selected a distinguished group of women to be honored.  Women who persisted.  Check out inspirational quotes from some of the honorees.

Geraldine Ferraro (1935-2011) Politician/First Woman Major Party VP Candidate and Human Rights Activist
"My desk drawer is filled with all kinds of prayers"
Elizabeth Peratrovich (Kaaxal-gat) (1911-1958) Political Activist for Alaska Natives, Spearheaded First Anti-Discrimination Law, USA
“I would not have expected that I, who am barely out of savagery, would have to remind gentlemen with 5,000 years of recorded civilization behind them, of our Bill of Rights.”

Jill Moss Greenberg Women’s/Civil Rights Activist *
"extraordinary accomplishments have largely been invisible"

Pauli Murray (1910-1985) Women’s Rights/Civil Rights Activist, Attorney, Author, and Episcopal Priest
"Hope is a song in a weary throat."
Cristina Jimenez Immigrant (DREAMERs) Activist*
"We won’t stop fighting. This is our home. “They tried to bury us, they didn’t know we were seeds.” Won’t stop until our communities can live w/our fear."

Marty Langelan Anti-Violence/Anti-Harassment Activist*
"Stop harassing women. I don't like it. No one likes it. Show some respect..."

Loretta Ross Reproductive Justice Activist*
"See how you can convince people not to believe together, but convince them to be together."

Linda Spoonster Schwartz Women Veterans Activist*
"There is so much promise for change"
Susan Burton Criminal Justice Reform Leader
"Mass incarceration is a symptom of a larger problem, which I call 'America's isms.' Classism, racism and capitalism..."

"They really fell in love with our family"

Saru Jayaraman Labor/Restaurant Workers Activist
"We wanted to show people that there’s another way of doing business"

Angelica Salas Immigrant Rights Activist
"What we're doing is building a movement that will transform America."

These honorees are among those who will be honored at the annual National Womens History Project luncheon later this month in Washington, D.C. 

These women are using their voices to change the world and changing lives. 

You may notice some McDonald's have flipped their iconic M upside down to celebrate International Womens Day and other companies are launching products to commemorate the day.

We are celebrating with a luncheon with some of our local community leaders.

RAIN RAIN GO AWAY! GIVEAWAY HOP

Hello Spring!  

I am so excited for Spring 2018.  Not that I have anything major planned or anything.  Well, I am on a cruise right now.  Oh yeah, I'm on my way to Cozumel for a few days of rest, relaxation and margaritas.  

What a way to welcome Spring huh?  What about you?  What are your Spring travel plans?  Are you and the family hitting the road?  Catching a flight somewhere?  Where ya headed?

Nothing like a little extra spending money when on vacation and I am so excited for this Rain Rain Go Away! Giveaway Hop.  This is my 3rd year participating in this fun hop sponsored by The Mommy Island and The Kids Did It and each year it gets bigger and bigger.  

There are some really great prizes up for grabs and add some new blogs to your reading list plus your chance to win a $40 Visa eGift Card.  Why $40 you ask.  Well that's because I-40 is the interstate we typically travel to most of our Spring Break destinations.

Jeepers! It's January Hop

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…

Life is a Beach Giveaway Hop

Spring is in full swing.  The birds are singin'.  The pollen is falling and temps are FINALLY warming up.  So what better time time to start planning our Summer getaways.

This year - as always - we are beach bound.  It's one of our fave places to visit given we only get to the beach once or twice a year.  

Last year's visit to Cozumel was one for the record books. We stopped by this little restaurant and dined on grilled shrimp in a cabana right on the beach.  
'Ohana also has a line of tequilas in flavors I had never seen before.  Tropical flavors such as coconut, mango and pina colada.  Hubby and I tried the 'Ohana peanut butter tequila.  The owner said folks either love it or hate it... we LOVED it!!!
As I was sipping all I could think of was how good this peanut butter tequila would taste as a baste on my tequila wings.  It would be like a tequila satay wings type dish.
