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?


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.
