Torani Syrups Review!



I recently got to try Torani Syrups! I have been wanting to try them for awhile just never gotten around to it. I received Vanilla Bean and  Peppermint to try. I have to say I love the fact that I don't have to visit the coffee house to get a drink I want no more!

I have to say my favorite is Peppermint Mocha's during the holiday season. I have to say vanilla bean cappuccino are great as well! I had so much fun recreating my favorite drinks!

The great thing is Torani has tons of different flavor syrups you are bound to find one you love!

Stomp, Stomp, Stomp Stompeez Review and Giveaway!


I know we all have heard the Stompeez commericals! They are so catchy that my girls sing it all the time! They where excited when I got to select a pair for one of them! 

I got the cute playful puppy.
Both my little girls take turns wearing them around the house. They are so cute and sound like a dog panting. What a great way to make wearing slippers fun!

Now Stompeez is offering one of my lucky readers their very own pair of Stompeez slippers!



Ibotta for the Andriod Device is now here!





Have you heard of Ibotta? Well it is a great new app that just came out for Andriod devices! I have been waiting  for it to come out for Andriod as it has been out for a little while for the iPhone.

This app is a great app to make some money while buying products you already need! If you aren't already signed up you should sign up here. I have already earned money! Another great thing is you get paid via paypal!

So, next time you shop make sure you check out Ibotta offers! It's really easy and simple to use. You just upload your receipt via your camera on your phone. It can take up to 24 hours for the money to show in your account but mine only took about 10 minutes and I got a notification that I had money in my Ibotta account. You can then cash out via paypal when you reach $5. How simple is that?

Plus, if you use coupons and Ibotta you can score products for cheap or free! Got to love money making apps!

Simone France Skin Care Review and Giveaway!


I recently got the luxury of  trying Simone France Body Buff and Body Glow.

Can I tell you I absolutely love it! Their are several ways to use the Body Buff. One is where you scrub it on and wash it off with soap. I personally didn't try that one as I wanted the nice moisturizing benefits of it. So, what I did was wash with my soap. Then afterwards scrub with the Body Buff and rinse off. I promise you will love how moisturized and soft your skin is afterwards! I also loved the smell of the scrub which to me smelled like lemon drops. My husband informed me that it smelled so good it made him want to bite me. Eeek!

Then after you get out of the shower and dry off you just lotion with the Body Glow for added softness. I really love it! I have to say I feel kinda of spoiled using it! Now I don't have to worry about drying out! And a add bonus for me is that neither the scrub or lotion are super strong smelling as being pregnant this super sense of smell is no fun. 

The best part is Simone France is offering one of my lucky readers their very own Body Duo like I received above to try!

National Pizza Month!

Did you know that October is National Pizza Month? It was first observed in the United States during 1984 and designated by Gerry Durnell, the founder of Pizza Today magazine.

So, this month I let the kids do the pizza cooking! I bought Thomas English Muffins, pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, and Hormel Pizza Toppings! They had a several choices Italian Sausage Crumbles, Beef Crumbles, and/or Turkey Pepperoni.

They got creative and made several different kinds. Some are just cheese pizza eaters. While the others went wild with the toppings! Over all they had a blast! It made for a very simple meal that they ask for now all the time. I can't eat pizza right now so I didn't join in the fun. The joys of morning sickness and pizza just don't agree with me. 

What are some of your creative pizza creations? What are some ways you let your kids get involved with cooking?

Wordless Wednesday! Need I say more?

IMAG0196-6.jpg


The picture says it all! We are expecting #8 May 29th, 2013. I could be off and be due as late as June 1st. But either way we all know babies never come on their due dates. Mine like to bake as long as possible. So, I know it won't be early! 

Gift Giving Made Easy with Red Envelope!


I was recently given the opportunity to review RedEnvelope.com. RedEnvelope is a great site for purchasing gifts for every occasion!

The name RedEnvelope comes from a firmly held belief in Asian cultures that the color red is an auspicious symbol of happiness. Gifts are often presented in a single red envelope- a time less tradition that carries with it well wishes of prosperity, fortune, appreciation, and love. 

With Christmas fast approaching now is the time to get started on Christmas shopping! So, I decided to get this cute photo tote for my mom. With as many grand kids I have given her and 2 new ones on the way she will be wanting to brag about them for sure.

Then I got this cute puppy cuddling mat for my new nephew that is due in March! I am so excited to finally be a Aunt! I also had to get one for our new arrival in May!
 
I found RedEnvelope very easy to find what I was looking for. Shipping was very fast! They had options where you could personalized your gift and have it gift wrapped and sent directly to the recipient.

Re-Body Hunger Chews Review!

 
 
I recently tried Re-Body Hunger Chews. I was kinda iffy at first as I never really believe stuff to work. I was surprised!
 
It says to take one twice a day before meals. I took mine before breakfast and lunch. They are very sweet at least to me.But they do work. At first you expect it to work right off. Nope! You do have to give your body a chance to adjust. I will say by the second day I was not feeling hunger in the evenings. I ended up not eating supper twice because I just wasn't hunger.So, I just started eating a salad for supper instead.
 
I do excerise regularly and I didn't see any weightloss per say as much as inches. My clothes started getting loose. But the scale said I weighed the same. I do work out with weights and muscle weighs more then fat.
 
So, if you are looking for something to help your appetite control. I really would recommend giving Re-Body Hunger Chews a try! I will be getting some more!

Britax Frontier 85

I have recently fell in love with the Britax 3G car seats! I have been looking at them for some time I think by far the Britax Frontier 85 is hands down the best!

The Britax Frontier 85 is designed to prevent and limit injuries. This seat is compatible with an optional accessory called SecureGuard, which works with the cars own seatbelt system when the seat is in booster mode to prevent abdominal injury. It also accommodates children in harness mode up to 85 lbs and has a 10 five point harness height positions up to 20".

What really impresses me is the fact that it can hold  a child up to 120 lbs and 5'5 tall in high back booster mode! Isn't that impressive! It also has energy absorbing tether, harness ultra guard system, EPS energy absorbing liner, and energy absorbing base. It has so many great features!

Creativity for Kids Review and Giveaway!

I love being crafty and doing fun things with my kids. So, I was excited to get 3 Creativity for Kids Kits to have fun with my girls! 

My little ones and I did the Mossy Meadows Gnome Garden. They loved it. I let them paint the dish, plant the seeds, and decorate how they wanted it to look. I helped with making the house. We had a blast together doing it! 

Then my 11 year old daughter designed this little jewelry box using the Deluxe Glitter Art Kit. You can also make cards which she is working on at the moment so no pictures of those yet. She had a blast designing this and enjoys crafts. 

Lastly my oldest daughter who is 13 had fun with the Feather Fashions. She designed the blue feather with flower headband and the pink feather flower ponytail holder. She is working on some more too! I think they are beautiful! 

I am so glad that my girls can be crafty! I love being crafty myself. So, I am always looking for things for them to use their creative side! I can't say how much fun it was to work with all my girls doing these crafts. It gave us some time together to have fun!

Family Fun Month

With work, school just getting back in swing, sports and other activities, it can often be more difficult than anticipated to spend quality time with your family or loved ones. This month set some time aside and plan a evening for the family as August is Family Fun Month!

I know my kids love it when we have a family night. We try to do it once a week but with everything going on sometimes that don't work out. Our goal is to set aside 1 night a week to have time as a family. Our favorite thing to do is play board games.

I usually try to make some yummy snacks. Our favorite is mini pizzas using Thomas English muffins. I use those and put pizza sauce on them and Hormel pepperoni minis. Of course we top them off with whatever cheese the kids want. Makes for a very yummy snack!

What do you do with your family for fun?

Sorry for the lack of post!

I want to apologize for the lack of post last week. I have been crazy busy getting the kids back in the gear of school. This year we are doing Kindergarten, 6th grade, 8th grade, and 9th grade. So, it is a very busy school year for me. 

Also, my baby turned 1 I will get some pictures up of that. She had a blast and really loved her cake. The first one of mine to actually dig into it so it was exciting.

Then my loving husband got into a motorcycle accident. Which Praise God he only walked away with road rash on his right arm. I am so thankful that was all he got as he could of been worse off. It was the other guys fault as he pulled out in front of him. He didn't even see my husband. But now we are waiting on the insurance to see what they are going to do about his motorcycle they are talking about totaling it out which would be fine by us. 

So, as you can see it has been a crazy week last week and hopefully this week won't be as crazy.

Thanks so much for reading! I am working on more giveaways!

My Free Payless Shopping Trip


I went to payless as I had 3 $2 off coupons from doing the surveys from previous purchases at the bottom of the receipts. So, I headed in and got 2 pairs of socks clearances to $2 each and the Hello Kitty hat clearances to $2. My total was $0.00 I didn't even have to pay tax and I let them do the socks together like a dummy so I only got 2 surveys to do for $2 off instead of 3. But can't beat free. 

So, don't forget to check your receipts for coupons.

Simple Green Review and Giveaway!


Simple Green is one of my favorite cleaners as it is multi-purpose. I love that it comes in a concentrated formula of 32 oz which can go a very long way. The best part about that is you chose the strength for the job you need to get done. 

If you have a heavy cleaning job you use 1 oz Simple Green to 1 cup of water. If you have a light cleaning job you use 1 oz Simple Green to 4 cups of water. I use the light cleaning for my counter and just cleaning around the house. My husband loves using it outside as a degreaser. It's his favorite so I have to kinda hide the bottle or he will use it all up super fast. This is non-toxic, concentrated and biodegradable. You can use it anywhere and feel confident that you house will be clean in a safe way.

Asthma Sense App Review and Giveaway!


If you suffer or have a loved one that suffers from asthma you know how important it is to manage and prevent attacks.

AsthmaSense is a take-anywhere journal that reminds you to take medication or test your breathing. It allows you to record symptoms, medication use and peak flow measurements from a single screen. You can also access your emergency contact information and automatically make a call, if needed.



This app is easy to use for managing asthma anytime, anywhere from you smartphone or IPhone! You can use it for your children or yourself. You can set reminders for medication use and peak flow testing. You can log diary actions, record symptoms and breathing function. It also allows you to select reminder tones for individual users. You can review up to one month of peak flow, symptoms and medication adherence. It will tell you if your asthma is "not well controlled" or "poorly controlled" according to National Institute for Health guidelines. 

This app amazes me and I am glad it is out there. I don't have anyone that suffers from asthma in my family anymore. My 11 yr old use to have asthma when she was a baby so I know how scary it can be. I am so thankful that she don't have it no more.

AsthmaSense is giving 2 of my lucky readers their very own AsthmaSense app!

Big Fish Games Review and Giveaway!



If you love playing games then you will love Big Fish Games! They have tons of games to chose from like Marble Popper Games, Adventure, Time Management, and many more. The best thing is you can try a game out for a hour before you decided whether you want to buy it or not. I really love this feature!


I recently purchased Zuma Deluxe. I have to say I am addicted and my kids love it too! Zuma Deluxe requires reflexes of steel and concentration. It is very addicting and make sure you have no distractions.   As you can see from the picture above it is similar to tetris but yet different as this isn't shapes it colors. You also earn points by hitting the coins that appear. That is the biggest challenge! Also, different marbles pop up in the colors meaning reverse, bomb, pause, and more. So, you could speed through a level or get overwhelmed.

Big Fish Games is giving two lucky readers their very own code for any non- Collector Edition Game.

Vibram FiveFingers

I just have to brag about my awesome score on these Vibram FiveFingers. I have been wanting a pair for working out but didn't want to spend $75 dollars on a pair. I have seen the ones the Fila's with the four toes. I was thinking about getting those. But when I found this awesome deal on Vibram FiveFingers at a local store I had to jump on it.

I got these shoes for $37.50. They where on sale at Eagle Outfitters! So, if you have a Eagle Outfitters near you, you will want to check it out!

I can't wait to start using these at the gym!
