New Christmas Tradition!

This month has gone by so fast, and I guess it’s because I have been super busy. School is finally over for the year, Christmas shopping is done, and now it is time to relax! I was going to do a wish list this year, but my biggest wish was fulfilled by getting my girls everything they wanted. So this year I will pass on my wish list and have a nice one for next year. I think I have started a new tradition with my family. Every year I want the girls to have something home made from either me or their Dad. This year the present came from me. I made them both a “No Sew Blanket”. 

It was simple to do and so much fun, not to mention they are so soft and warm. I can’t wait to see their faces when they open them up. My youngest loves blankets and has kept, and still plays with all her baby blankets. So this will be something she likes. So as we count down these last two days, I want to tell all my followers and readers: Have a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year! I will post again before the…

Hasbro Review and Giveaway: Cuponk and Girltalk { Ended}

What Shot You Got?
This month,Cuponkwas named to the Toys R Us “Hot Holiday Toy List” and the Kmart “Fab 15.” Not a bad way to start the holiday season! We’d like for you to try this hot game and tell us what you think! Cuponk challenges players to come up with custom trick shots to show their skills and land the ball in the Cuponk cup.
My Thoughts: This game has been a big hit with my family. Girls and boys alike go crazy over this game. This game lets you get the competitive edge, but in a fun way. Watching the kids trying to get their own trick shots down is hilarious. This game is also not for kids, but adults as well who feel like a Kid at heart!

LOL Moments Shine
The giggles are uncontrollable when theHasbro Girl Talk Gamesare out. These games are perfect for fun slumber parties and to keep those “lol moments” alive during the holiday season. Each Girl Talk game, including Dare Confetti, Sparkle Spots, and Sassy Sticks, gets girls and families talking, bonding, and laughing!

On This Day I'm Thankful

Things I’m Thankful For
There are so many things I’m thankful for. To start off my list I’m thankful to have such a forgiving God! I know that all things are possible through him. He gave me life and I am thankful to be a child of God! I am thankful for my parents. They sacrificed a lot to make sure that my sister and I had a good life. They made sure we were never without anything we needed, not only to my sister and me, but also to my family and our close friends. I get my caring personality from my parents and for that I am thankful. I am thankful for Jess. It is awesome to have someone love you unconditionally. To be able to find someone that loves you the way God loves us is a true blessing for that I am thankful. I’m thankful to have two beautiful daughters in my life. The best gift God could give to a mother is that of a child. I am thankful for my family. My family has become my best friends. I have been through a lot in my life, and through every step my family has been there for…

Orglamix Haul!

So I have done a review for Orglamix mineral makeup and I have to say I'm hooked. I have bought several products since then and I just wanted to share a few with you know from their Candy Glam line. These were only being sold for a limit of time around Halloween. I 'm so glad I was about to get my hands on these because the colors are to die for! The colors I received are:

ooh la la frosted snowflakes sweet tarte  HD sky  cabana boy (my favorite)

I'm so in love with these colors, and I'm glad they have been added to my collection! Stay tuned because I will have another Orglamix haul here soon!!  With this purchase I also received two tubes of Sparkle glitter. I haven't used it as of yet, but I will here shortly. I wasn't sure how to use it, but this is what Cheri sent to me about it: 
EYES Eyes are the most versatile canvas for sporting sparkle, thanks to liners, shadows, and add-ons that can stand alone for subtlety or be layered for drama. Keep these pro pointers in mi…

How honored I am

How Honored I am
Before I came into this world you made the choice as a young man to fight for your country. You joined the navy and became an air dale. For that I am honored. After serving your country, you took it a step further to serve your community by becoming a fireman. For that I am honored. You married my mother and helped bring me into this world. You raised me with your values goals, and strong will. For that I am honored. You have touched many lives over the past years, some you may not even know. For that I am honored. There are things that happen to you in life that never strays from your mind, stories that you tell of things that have occurred through out your life. There is a special person that I’m honored to know and one day be able to tell his story. You are my Dad, friend, and my Hero. And for that I am honored! Happy Veterans Day 2010

Update on Wedding Planning

So I have been planning my wedding for a while now. I have found that it is not an easy task. I have come up with a finale date and it will be the 30th of April 2011. I want it to be during the day because I want to have light finger foods for the reception. I’m not planning anything extravagant, just something simple like me. Will be a church wedding and I might also have the reception at the church (I’m still undecided) and my closest friends and family will the only ones attending.
I still can’t decide on my colors. I think we are going with pool and champagne, but that can still change. The best part yet is I have found the perfect wedding dress! I love everything about it, from the delicate bead work to the lace cap sleeves on it, to the long train behind it. It took a while to find it, but my mom did an excellent job! It is more then I could ever ask for. I will feel like a true princess walking down the isle in it.
I will have eight bridesmaids, 8 groomsmen (hopefully) and 1 ju…

Great Site for Holiday Shopping

When shopping for this holiday season whether it’s for the perfect ring or just an outfit to wear out on the town it can become a stressful event. Instead of the hassle of fighting through crowds to find your purchase I suggest trying out This site was founded in 2004 by founders Michael Yang and Yeogirl Yun, who is as well founder of mySimon. They have made it easy to find anything you need or want on one site. You can find a wide range of merchandise from a bolero Jacket to a three carrot diamond ring. If you are looking for the perfect diamond ring they do offer a buying guide for diamonds. The site is easy to navigate and has everything broken down into categories. You can even search through each individual category by what color item you are looking for. If you are looking for a site that has everything you are looking for at your finger tips then I suggest taking a look through

Review: Roba Dolce Gelato and Sorbetto

If you are tired of the boring plain bowl of ice cream, I have a treat to introduce to you that will tickle your taste buds! I was recently asked to do a review on Roba Dolce Gelato and Sorbetto. They’ve used real family recipes that had been used for generations to create authentic Italian gelato and Sorbetto. They have a variety of flavors from Dark Chocolate Chunk Gelato to Blood Orange Sorbetto. I would have to say that the Della Coconut has to be my favorite. The flavors and textures are smooth and to have the real coconut bits is a pleasant treat! Click here to check out a little bit about the company.

Review: “Yo Gabba Gabba!: Music is Awesome Volume 2.”

To help promote the Yo Gabba Gabba There’s A Party In My City Tour we are doing a review on the new CD “Yo Gabba Gabba!: Music is Awesome Volume 2.”   This CD fits right along with the TV show that currently comes on Nick Jr. This is a CD that is for the whole family. It provides your child with a whole array of different type’s music. I’ve really enjoyed doing this review, we listen to this CD in the car and we always have it on repeat! I know it is hard to explain exactly how much your child is going to love this CD, so I’ve made a little video of my girls enjoying the songs.

As you can tell the girls love Yo Gabba Gabba and can sing along to every song! As a Mom and a fan of Yo Gabba Gabba I would recommend this CD to anyone looking for a fun way to entertain their children be at home or in the car, this is the way to go!

FTC: I was sent these products by a PR firm for review purposes. I was not paid to do this review, nor does it alter my view on the product. As always, reviews are …
