my life are changing and not sure what to think about it. I am getting ready to re enter the working world and i am really excited for that. I love being a stay at home mom but i think i am really needing to know that i can work again and make my own money. Justice is getting big and really starting to get to be a wonderful little man. He has his moments but what child does not, I think that is just being a kid. He still doesn't really take a nap and when he does it is a fight to get him to do so. I think that if this is as bad as it gets then i will be ok but there are days when i want to ripe my hair out because it is being a little turd and i am not sure how to curb that. I love being a mom and would not change that part of my life for anything.

I am trying to get things figured out so that i have time in the day for everything that needs to be done and what needs to be done but not sure how all of that is going to happen.


I believe this is one of the last pictures i have like this. Little man does not have a binkie anymore and doesn't even ask for it

Me and Justice and daddy went to Winthrop on vacation last week. It was so wonderful to take justice over there since he had never been there. We had a blast at Aaron's grandparents house, they live right in Winthrop. We got there Monday morning and that night it started to snow. Not what I was looking forward to but justice really liked the snow and running around in it bare foot. That is my little man. We took justice down town every day and play in town and he got to go to the candy store everyday. Something I do not do at home, but since we were on vacation I went a head and said ok with it. We also took him for a hike in the mountains to a huge waterfall and he had a blast. He loved the waterfall. We went to twist too and and took him to hank's which is a grocery store with animals that are stuffed there. The owner had just went some where and killed a lion and had it stuffed and put in his store. Justice loved seeing all the animals, he was so mad that he had to leave. He cried and screamed for a while. We just had a lot of fun doing things together and hanging out as mommy daddy and son. It was a much needed time together as the three of us.

We came home wednesday night over a pass that was covered in snow but we made it home safely which i am very happy about.

The rest of the week we just did things together and hung out. It was so much fun. I am thankful for the times that i get to do things with my son and my husband.

Justice still has no binkie and is doing really wonderful with that.

Sunday after nap time I took little man's Binky and hid it because I was tired of the thing. He has now been with out it ever since. I never thought this day would come since he was so attached to the thing but it is so nice not having him talk through the thing all the time and telling to take it out so that we could understand what he was saying.I am sad because that means that he is getting bigger and more independent but it was something that had to happen.
Now on to the potty training, I would like to see him with no diapers by the time he is three but we will see as he has no interest at all in the potty. I am trying everything but nothing is working right now. I want to not have to change diapers for a while but we will see how this goes and when it will happen.
I have been sick all week and have not a whole lot of nothing. Staying home is nice but not when you are sick and just want to sleep all day. With justice around sleeping really isn't an option or my house would be destroyed.

Justice still isn't really taking naps, I try everyday but it is getting to be a pain that I might just tell him that he needs to play in his room for a while, we will see because he needs his naps still but i am not sure how to approach it differently so that he will take them. He gets grumpy when he doesn't take one but it is getting too much of a hassle to even try anymore, but i need him to take a nap so that I can have some down time to get things done that need to be done that I can not really do when he is awake.
On the 20th of September we celebrated our 6year anniversary. We went out to dinner and drove around for a while. It was nice to spend time with my husband and remember why we got married and love each other. Justice got to go to aaron's parents and had a blast, then the next weekend we did the oyster run and justice went to my mom and step dad's and had a blast there
Every time he is somewhere I am not they always tell me how good he is and he never gets into anything. Wow that is my son,I am very happy that he is a good boy for everyone but it would be nice if would not get into everything when he is home with me. Sometimes I just don't want to clean up as many messes as my little man makes all the time. I want a clean house for more than five mins. maybe someday right.
He is talking so much more and really has a mind of his own. He tells you no now, stop it, love you and has really taken after me and not stop talking. He loves to tell you all about everything and at some points I think he talks more than I do and I really did not think that was possibly.

Life has been so busy lately and my little man is becoming a man of his own. He has learned to tell us no and disobey lately, it is getting frustrating but I am doing by best to deal with it. Justice last weekend got to stay the night at aaron's parents so that we could have so time together. Justice did really well and acted like nothing happened. It made me happy and sad that he didn't need his momma anymore.
He is growing up way to fast for me. I still can not keep him in bed at nap and bed time and it seems to be getting worse then better, but it is something that we are dealing with.
This last weekend I really did not get to see little man that much as I was gone saturday and sunday doing different things but he had fun with his daddy and then his nana and pappa. I missed him and I know that he missed me as on sunday night he was very whinny and wouldn't let his daddy even sit by him just momma. It was a tough day until bed time and then I layed next to him in his bed til he fell asleep and woke up in the morning in a way better mood.
Life i the same just getting busier and not enough time in the day to get everything done that I need to do with a little man who will not sit still and not get into everything.
I am also not liking the whole three hours of getting out of bed before we finally lay down to take our nap and the screaming and fits he has been throwing. Life was easier a couple months ago.

ok ok ok

I know that things have not been done on here for a while so this weekend i am going to crank out the reviews that need to be done and giveaways. sorry


nothing has really changed around here other than justice got his first real black eye from his rocking horse the other day and now spanks the horse and tells it, that it is a bad horsey. it is cute but i feel bad for my little man

Wednesday, August 26, 2009

Bed and nap times have become a night mare around my house. I am ready to just let the little man stay up until he passes out somewhere. He gets up many times. Nothing works to keep him in his bed and it is getting frustrating same with the middle of the night getting up too. I am ready to scream because I really do not know what to do any more. I have not been able to post very often because I have not had the time, little man just is not the same little boy any more. Help me

Friday, August 21, 2009

Life as I know it around here has been a little out of sort.

I have not posted lately, one because my internet was down and I have just been busy.

Me and justice did the fair everyday this last week and on Friday night daddy went back to the fair with us. I only live a couple blocks away so we walked there everyday and had a ton of fun. Then saturday I had a Cookie Lee booth at the fair and was there from 8am to 11:30 pm. I was so tired but my booth did really well and I made a lot of new contacts. I missed my little man but he had a good day with daddy, they went out to breakfast, coffee and then to a car show. After justice went to bed that night Aaron finished painting Adina's room. I am still tired from the long weekend but someday i will recover.

Sunday aaron took out truck to another car show and me and justice came down to hang out with him for a while. It was a wonderful day and i am glad the weekend is over and back to normal. I need to be able to just keep my normal life sometimes and not add a bunch of things on top of it or I get to tired and so does little man

What a week

this week has been really trying for me. my son is being a stinker throwing fits all the time and just being a stinker. Nothing is working, not time outs, not spankings not even going to bed early. I am not sure what else to try, I am ready to pull my hair out and scream, but i know that will not solve anything either. I love him to death but wish that my sweet little boy would come back and the little stinker would go away. Is this what they mean by terrible twos? If so I do not want them in my house and would love for them to go away.

Life has been trying all together and hard. I am not sure what to do to turn things around and make some more money for our family without having to get a real job where I would have to put little man in day care since that would take all the money that I would make and would make no sense to do that. That would not be helping us out at all.

I sold my truck and got a suburban for free, well we traded another car we had for it so that saves us some money, but not enough to make it. I need to start getting some shows for cookie lee. Book parties are good to so if you would like to host a show and earn free jewerly please let me know so that I can get your things to you.

I am depressed and not sure what to do. Way to much going on in the past couple of weeks and nothing has been to good.

Don't ask and I won't tell you. I love my little man even when he tells me that Maxi pads are stickers and comes out like this.

Eden Fantasys
Eden Fantasys is an awesome company that has something for everyone. Wither you are looking for lingerie, to the those other toys they carry it all. They have something for everyone's taste and appeal. I got to review the Infared Massager which is awesome. It comes with five interchangeable attachments, but the opposite side of the wand’s flexible head warms, and both heat. You could get the vibrations and heat the your body needs.

The Infared Massager comes with

1. Focus cone

2. Buffer

3. Dualer

4. Wide

5. Large bump

You have the choice between low vibrations and high heat or high vibrations and low heat. You get the best of both worlds.

It comes with over 6 feet of cord so that you are able to massage any where on your body that needs it.

The Infrared Massager works wonders on your sore neck, shoulders, and back. Its original use was as a massager, and it really eases tension and pain in these areas. It has a 6’ power cord, so you can plug it in almost anywhere. This is something that could be used on any part of your body.

Eden Fantasys is an awesome company with something for anyone. They even carry some dress up costumes.

No matter what you order they package their products in a brown box and it is not known at all what you are getting.

To my baby's I will never know.

I love you and miss you so much. I want to hold you and kiss you and show you my love. No matter what you will be in my heart and my thoughts everyday. I am sorry that I was not able to meet you but I know someday I will be able to. God had a bigger plan for you and wanted you to come home. I am not sure why now, but I am just going to except it and love you and remember you for all of my days. I will someday see you two again and I love you both. Never forget that your mommy loves you so much and can't wait to see you someday in heaven. Daddy says that you are in baby heaven eating grapes. I love you.

Love mommy

First time in a big pool with daddy, adina and uncle joel. Justice had a blast.

Bra Barrette are wonderful they keep your straps together so that they are not sliding down your arm, and they also are cute so that you could wear them with a tank to keep the straps up too. They are something that works and cute at the same time. This is a must have in every woman's closest for those bra's that don't stay up, but also to add a little something to tank tops and dresses.

They are easy to add to your bra and just as easy to remove. Bra Barrettes come plain and with interchangeable charms. I have one with a yellow flower and I just love it.

Bra Barrettes allows you to be in command of your straps while adding jewerly to your back.

I am sad

This week has pretty much sucked I lost my baby and had to be away from little man for a few days while I was in and out of the hospital. He now does not want me to leave his site. I am not sure right now if I want to try again since this is the second time that I have lost a baby to miscarriage. I am not sure if I am strong enough to go through it again.

On another note justice is now in his big boy bed and in his new room. He is loving having his toys in his room with him. He is growing up way to fast for me. I want my little baby back but I know that will not happen

Monday, July 27, 2009

Sorry i have not posted lately I will be back on the blog tomorrow I have been in an out of the hospital because I lost the baby so I will be back tomorrow

What a weekend

This weekend was go go go. We had so many things to do and not enough time to do them in.
Friday night we just hung around home and got ready for saturday which consisted of going to my mom's to trade cars long story but we got the suburban and they took the scout for my brother. Then to my grandma's house and to my dads to visit, pick raspberries and get a dresser that he is giving to the baby. Then home and got justice in the bath because he was grosse from playing in the garden with me at my daddy's house. Then off to bed for him

Sunday we went to arron's family as me and my mother in law were throwing a baby shower for aaron's brother and girlfriend and carla ( aaron's mom) broke her foot on saturday we got there early to get everything done. The boys ( aaron, and joel) helped me out a lot getting things at the store and making little things. Then aaron took justice outside to play in the water durning the baby shower since he wanted the binkies on one of the presents.

After the baby shower then we celebrated b-days and justice sure was tired and whinnie never really seen him that bad but that is alright everyone has there days.

Today i started to work on the room trade with that baby coming. I got everything in the room painted other than the ceiling that justice and the baby are moving into.

Hip-T is an awesome way to take care of those problems that we all have with shirts that just are not long enough. Such as:


An Unwanted game of thong peek-a-boo!
Bending over at work and showing your boss the green polka-dot
thong you're wearing is definitely not the way to get that promotion
you've been hoping for!
The Plumber's crack
Ladies, let's leave this one to the professionals.
The Dreaded "Muffin Top"
No one wants a muffin top - unless it's blueberry!

These shirts are so comfortable and stylish too. They come in many colors and patterns and are not really a shirt at all. They start about your belly and cover those problems that you might have with the shirts that just are not long enough when you bend over. This is a must have in any wardrobe to not only to create sassy layers with your shirts, but to also take care of the peekaboo we might have.

They are light weight and very comfortable. They stay in place which is an added plus that you are not having to pull them down all the time.

Hip-T comes in many sizes:
xsmall 0-2
small 4-6
medium 8-10
large 11-12
xlarge 14
1xl 16-18

What a day

OK so today I am feeling much better. Me and little man cleaned the house, emptied out his dresser and drawers in his bed and organized his clothes in his room and cleaned his room, did 4 loads of laundry, loaded and unloaded the dishwasher, shampooed the carpets, the couch, and the chairs, cleaned my step daughters room, took care of the dogs and my neighbors dogs and the other neighbors plants, I have worked on reviews, given little man a bath and changed diapers, cleaned my bedroom, the one thing that I have not done is really eaten today.

Justice wanted to fish today so I made him a pole. It was a cardboard tube from wrapping paper with a whole at the end, a shoe lace for the fishing line and a safety pin with a stuffed puppy attached. He played with that all day and even had to fish in the bath tub tonight so puppy and little man had to get dried off when they got out of the tub.

It has been a busy productive day and now that little man is asleep I am tired and need to try to find something to eat.


Guardian Angel Bracelets are a must in every household for those days when you go out of the house.

These bracelets are wonderful for parents, grandparents, babysitters, teachers, well anyone who has something to do with children in their care. These guardian angel bracelets are colorful so kids like to wear them and they have a secure clasp that the bracelet has to be cut off after being put on. That is wonderful because then the children can not take them off on their own. So this is something that you could keep on the children for a little while. These would work anywhere that you are going with your child and not have to worry.
The bracelet itself says "If lost call!" Then you write the number your would want them to call, most likely a cell so that they can call right where you are at and you can be reunited with your child right away.
Guardian angel Bracelet also has classroom packs for those field trips and outings. They have the family pack which would work for those adults whom are elderly patients, with Alzheimer's disease or simply forgetful, wander away from home, their children, grandchildren, nurses, or care providers. And, at retirement communities and care facilities, the changes in drivers and caregivers makes it difficult for the patient to remember the cell number of each person who may transport them to the doctor, dentist, or hairdresser.
Then they have the group pack of 100 for those large outings with a lots of people to look out for.
Every pack of guardian angel bracelets also comes with safety tips. In my opinion this is a wonderful product that is necessary in every family household.

One lucky reader will get to win a pack of their own and make sure you include your email address in your entries please

Let me know one reason why you think that these would be good for your family

Simple Stencils are pre-pasted, pre-spaced, individually laser cut out letters that press on your wall or any flat smooth surface (glass, metal, smooth stone, plastic, etc.). Once applied with our easy to follow instructions, the letters are the only thing remaining on the wall or surface. The letters are very thin, equivalent to about 3 coats of paint and have a beautiful matte or satin finish. The above properties give the letters the appearance of being painted on without all the mess, skill, creative limitations and time that hand painted stencils require.

The simple stencils are so easy to put on the walls. You peel the backing off, stick to the wall or surface of your choice, and use the rubbing tool that is included with each order and pull the coating off and there they are. They are so easy to do that some one like me even did it with no problem.

They have many different types of stencils and I got to choose a few. I made my own for little man's room "Justice Lee's Room", I also got a monogram of an "A" that looks wonderful behind the stove in our kitchen. I absolutely love these stencils and would love to put them in every room of our house to add a little something extra to each room.

I would recommend these to anyone to would like to add a little touch to any room in the house. They are a fun way to jazz up the wall and they can be taken down and not hurt the paint.

One of my lucky readers will get to win $50.00 gift certificate from simple stencil to be able to jazz up their own walls.

First off visit Simple Stencil and let me know what your favorite one is.

Tomorrow is my birthday and I can not believe that I will be 28. It makes me sad to think about how time is flying. I am getting old and my son is growing into a little man and not a baby anymore. I want to hold on to every minuet that I can but I know that I can not do so. I want to go back when Justice was just a new baby and I was only 26. Do you think that I can do that?

Today was a good day with little man, he played and really did not get into much which was really nice since that does not happen too much. I wish that every day would go this way but I know that would be asking too much so for now I will take just one day this way. I am a pretty easy going mommy when it comes to messes but I also can have enough of it just like everyone else.

It has been wonderful weather here but I have not been taking little man outside much since the mosquitoes are so bad and little man already looks like he has some weird skin disease since he has been biting so many times, even all over his face. I feel horrible for him. I wish that there was something that I could do but I have tried the candles, the whipes and the spray but nothing is keeping these darn things away, it is a real bummer because you walk outside of my house and with in 5 mins. you have ten bites. Justice right now has about 10 just on his face.


My little man is a big helper and loves to vacuum.

There’s a great new “linky” service available and I wanted to let you know about it. It’s called “MckLinky” – http://www.mcklinky.com/. After realizing the need for a new, reliable link-list capability, Brent Riggs and MckMama got together to create a free, easy to use linky service for all their blog friends.

MckLinky is a free links list feature that allows you to do include lists of other blog links like MckMama does on Not Me Monday. Some people call them “carnivals” or “memes” but you can use MckLinky any time you want your blog readers to leave a list of links on your blog. It’s simple, reliable and free.

Check it out here: http://www.mcklinky.com/

I have been playing catch up on a lot of things right now as I have not been feeling up to par. I wish that I was but I am not. Today tough I am feeling great and have been trying to catch up on a lot of things that I have not gotten done. Like for one clean little man's room, his laundry and of course he really needed a bath this morning so he got that too. He was getting pretty homelee looking but that was my fault for not doing it sooner. I wish that there were more hours in the day to get things done, and more time to enjoy my life, but there is not so I will have to make the most out of what we do have.

I am not sure what all I am going to do today but I plan on getting a lot done and having fun with little man at the same time.

I am happy to be having another little one, but I am going to also cherish this time with Justice since this time will be all that we have as just the two of us all day everyday. There will be two little ones for me to take care of and all that good stuff, which will also mean less time to get things done and sleep.

Kids lunch Box Cards: are a fun way to send something in your child's lunch to school. These cards are something that can be reused if the child remembers to bring them home with them. They are very colorful and have scratch off answers or true statements.
I got to review the mystical little people and eeeww, that's grosse and they were fun even for adults.

One card I will share as an example of the eeeww, that's grosse: A cockroach can live 9 days without it's head before it starves to death. eeeww, that's grosse but true.

On the back of the lunch box cards there is room for you to write your own personal note to your child too. What child would not want these in their lunch box to share with their friends while they eat?

One of my lucky readers will get a chance to win some lunch box cards of their own and in your entries please leave me your email address

Leave a comment letting me know which lunch box card you would like

Cheaper Than Therapy




My little man is still a baby at heart and I love it

Wednesday, June 24, 2009


I have been slacking on getting the house cleaned, Justice's laundry just about everything so today is going to be a day for catch up in every way. I am not looking forward to it but it is something that has to be done.Justice will be my helper and he will make the messes right behind me as I can cleaning them up, but that is part of being the mommy to my son.
This week I have had no time to get anything done and I am getting a little irritated of how our house looks and I know if I do not take care of it no one will.

I also need to try to figure out why the toilet will not flush oh wait I know that answer to that justice must have flushed something down there again, just what? I guess the toilet is going to have to come off again and turned upside down and hopefully what ever it is will come out. Boys are so much fun and into everything all the time.

Justice actually went down for his nap today with out a problem and I hope that he gets a good rest since he has been a little stinker this morning and into everything, I am used to it but I sure do get tired of picking up messes all the time or washing the floor ten times a day. This morning it was pancake mix all over the floor along with vanilla wafer cookies. What a mess and the floor still needs to be washed but I have not gotten that far yet today. I will go take care of that in a little while.

We are excited for the baby, but I am not sure how justice will do with the baby as he has been my only little one and now his attention is going to have to get shared. I am happy, nervous and a little scared to be a stay at home mommy of two little ones. What have I gotten myself into? Am I crazy?

Busy weekend

This weekend has been busy with a lot of drama. I hate drama but for some reason in my family there is a lot of it. We had a wonderful fathers day at my mom's for birthday parties and such. Justice had fun swinging and playing out side then we headed down to aaron's parents house for a little while. We had fun there too. Other than that my weekend with little man consisted of running around and getting things done.

Today we have been making our deliveries and now it is nap time. I have not got to do the things that I would like to do and get done but hopefully today I will get a lot of it done. I am not going to keep my fingers crossed on that though. It is just another day in my house with all the things that need to get done and are not getting done. I am used to it, but wish one day that would change.

What a day

So I have not been feeling well and have not really had an energy to play with my little man this past week, so I knew that something was up and that I have felt this way before and yes I have Justice is going to be a big brother and Adina a big sister again. I am totally excited and can't wait to have another little one in the house but before then I have some work to do. I need to get justice moved into the bigger bedroom and Adina in the smaller one since the little ones will be sharing the room, I would love to get the little man in his big boy bed and potty trained but we will see on that since he has no interest in either.

Ok so this week we have not done much other than hang around the house and play, I am ready to get out and do something fun, just not sure what yet. Yesterday justice did get to got o the neighbors house and play with the boys in the backyard under my supervision and he had a blast. Then we came home ate dinner and watched some cartoons and got ready for bed. Then when daddy got home we went back outside for a while and play, all and all it was a wonderful day and little man did not get into to many things and really did not make any messes for me to clean up which was nice.

Today we have been to the bank and took daddy a coffee at work. Other than that nothing to exciting going on in our neck of the woods today.

Faber- Castell is an environmentally responsible producer or premium quality children's art products. I got to review the art easel that is portable. This product is so cool and my two year old son absolutely loves it. It has a white board for him to draw on, a chalk board, and comes with paper too. The drawers contained colored pencils, oil pastels, markers, chalk and an eraser. This was one of the best inventions that Faber-castell has made. It is made perfectally to sit in the little ones laps in the car and at home.

All of the pencils are made from re-forested wood and faber-castell plants one million seedlings per year in their nursery. The earsers are all 100% PVC and latex free. There markers are also washable.

The travel easal is filled with products that have been safety tested and are non-toxic, perfect for the biginner artist, just graduating from crayons.

One of my lucky winners will have a chance to win something from Preschool product line, and it will be the winners choice.

The past couple of days my stomach has not been feeling so well and I have been really tired. ME and Justice did go out side to play today, but now we are back in the house not doing a whole lot other than just relaxing. I will be doing some more reviews and giveaways hopefully tonight.

I am happy that I am blessed with my little man, but there are days like today that I would love to just crawl in a corner and not do a whole lot of anything, but my little man keeps me going and on my toes all day long and I do not get a moments brake. This is what I signed up for when I became a stay at home mom and I love every minuet of it, I am just tired and not feeling well today.

This weekend was packed ill where I had no time to do anything. Furday night was the dessert night and we sure ate a lot. It was a lot of in and justice had a blast too, but I personally ate so much that I did not feel so well the next morning, but it was fun and that was what mattered.
Saturday morning we had family pictures at justice's nap time. The first few went good then my son lost it, he was ready for bed and just cried, we got my whole family done before that of my mom and step dad and all the children and grand children. There is only 22 of us total but the photographer did an awesome job. He was very patiant and very good with all the little ones. We then headed home and got justice down for his nap, I had to leave to go and do the acs fundraiser which did not go so well so I came home around 8 instead of staying the night. I was wiped and ready for bed. Aaron had taken justice down to his parents to help build a wheel chair ramp. Justice got his own hammer and a bail in a board to hammer on. I guess he was a big help and I am sure it was cute to watch him.
Then Sunday my dad and family came down here for a bbq for a early fathers day since my dad works on fathers day. It was fun and justice got to play with Damian and auntie Jaryn. He had a lot of fun, he even went to bed with no hassle that night, I think the whole weekend wore him out as this morning he actually slept in and it was so nice. He was a pill for nap though he went down at 11 and finally fell asleep around 1 and got up at 3, so now we will see how bed time goes tonight since he never sleeps that late. Today has been a day that I have done nothing and I don't plan to do anything other than lounge around the house and watch some movies with my little man.

Summer is my favorite time of the year to sit outside get a tan and just hang out, but ever since I had Justice I was scared to do so. I did not want the sun in his eyes and I did not want his head to get burned since he has fine blondish brown hair. I have always been wondering what to do since every time I have bought little man sun glasses or a hat he would not wear it or he would break the glasses in the first 5 minutes.

Baby Banz Inc carries a full line for children and baby's and they are 100% UVA/ UVB protection. The baby banz eye wear are made out of a durable and safe polycarbonate frame and lenses. They have a comfortable neoprene band that adjusts to your child's head. They also come in many colors. We got the camo since daddy is a hunter and I just really like camo. These glasses are cute and are a good way to keep your little ones eyes happy in the sun. Baby Banz also has a 6 month limited warranty on their glasses, so if they break your covered. They are also BPA and Phthalate free.

Baby Banz eye wear and sun hats range from birth to 5 years old and come in over 12 cool colors. There is a style and color for every child out there.

Baby Banz
Sun Hats are just as wonderful and a must have too. They offer added protection form the sun's rays with a board brim to cover not only the head but also the ears which get burned so easily. They also shade the nose, cheeks and necks of our little ones.

The hats are machine washable, built in band that adjusts when the child grows and has a UPF 50+ rating.
In my house the hats and the glasses are a must have.

Visit usa.babybanz.com to check out all the colorful stylish glasses for your child today.

One lucky reader will get to win a pair of baby banz of their own (up to 19.99)

Visit baby banz and let me know what glasses you would choose

The FlameDisk, a charcoal substitute, is a safer, more convenient way for moms to grill out—especially on a tight schedule or budget. Unlike charcoal, the FlameDisk lights immediately and lasts roughly 45 minutes( that is what the package says, but they lasted 1 hour and a half both times) before quickly burning out and cooling. This product is one hundred percent recyclable and it leaves no mess like the charcoal would.
The FlameDisk are the size of a small charcoal bbq and they are light, perfect for camping, tail gateing or as we used them in the driveway. They retail at $4.99 and it is well worth the money.
The chicken that we cooked ont he flame disk was wonderful, evenly cooked and tasted awesome. It had the bbqed flavor with out the hassle of charcoal. The steak also turned out just as wonderful. I am not a person who would bbq with out my husband doing it, but with the flame disks I would.

Tonight is our first dessert night. We do pot roast night, bbq night, fire night and movie night, but tonight is the dessert night where we have a ton of friends coming over and everyone is bringing a dessert. We are going to sit outside eat a ton of dessert (get fat) and have a fire, it should be a blast and I hope it is the first of many. We have a lot of friends coming over so I am sure that we will not feel so good by the end of the night because of course you have to try everything or that would be rude. Justice will have fun because he will be up for some of it and then he will be off to bed.

This morning we got up at 4 o'clock in the morning because Justice had puckies on and he wanted to be changed. I changed him but then he wanted to cuddle so we layed on the couch and cuddled until 6:00 in the morning. He slept but I did not. We then got up and got in the shower and took off to run our errands and got our things done that needed to be done.

We are home now and Justice is down for his nap and I am going to get the house cleaned and ready for tonight.

Today we hung around the house and got somethings done here since I will be doing a cancer fundraiser all weekend with my cookie lee. Justice made more messes than I already had but that is what my son does best for me. We did leave a couple of times to get avon delivered but other than that it was a stay at home day. Once aaron got home I had to run to the mall to get a new adapter for justice's dvd player because his stopped working and he likes to watch it when we are in the car. Then I had to run to office depot to make copies for this weekend. Now I am home tired and ready to relax. Daddy got little man down to bed with out any noise but that is the way it is when only one of us are home to put him down, if we both are home then it is a never ending process.
I am now waiting for Aaron to get back with dinner since I did not cook today and it is 8:04 and I am hungry and I could not call when I was out since justice put my blackberry in the toilet the other day so it does not work any more. Tomorrow we will be waiting at home all day for fedex for my new blackberry and since I have to sign for it I need to not leave so that I do not miss them because I am lost with out my phone.

Log Cabin has reformulated their syrup by replacing high fructose corn syrup with real sugar and let me tell you it is wonderful. I am not a huge syrup fan, but this is a must have in our house not only do I like it but my two year old whom loves pancakes will go to the cupboard and will grab Log Cabin for his pancakes over the other syrups in there.
Log cabin has been around since 1887. I have had log cabin syrup before they reformulated it and it is better tasting now that it is natural sugars and not high fructose corn syrup.



Here are some recipes to try with this wonderful syrup:
Apple Pecan Baked Pancake
1/2 c. favorite pancake mix
2 tbsp. butter- (melted)
1 c. Granny Smith apple- (peeled and sliced)
1/3 c. pecans- (chopped)
3 c. Log Cabin Syrup
1/2 tsp. cinnamon- (ground)

Instructions:
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare pancake mix according to the package directions and set aside. Pour melted butter in 9" pie plate. Place apple slices in bottom of pie plate, sprinkle cinnamon and pecans and drizzle syrup over apples, carefully pour batter on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until top springs back when touched, Loosen edges and invert onto serving plate. Cut wedges and serve with warm maple syrup and or fresh apple butter. Serves 4 to 6. Good served with sausage links.

Two of my lucky readers will get to win log cabin syrup of their own:

First let me know what you would use it on.

Belly Bar

Belly bars are wonderful, they taste great and give you everything that you need while you are breasting feeding, pregnant and before you become pregnant. They are a good alternative in my mind to having to take the vitamins when you can eat something that will make your mouth water and make you want more. It is a snack and a vitamin all in one.
I am not pregnant but I ate the chews which are wonderful and packed full of flavor, the bars taste like a chocolate bar and the shakes are to die for. I even made my husband try them and he loved them too. This is something that I will have in my house to keep us full of the vitamins that are needed when you become pregnant which is something that we would like to do, so why not start now.
Belly bars are manufactured by NutraBella, They are packed with key prenatal nutrients including iron, folic acid, calcium, protein and omega-3 DHA, Bellybar products are a convenient and mouth-watering way for expectant and breastfeeding moms to get the vitamins and minerals they need, while enjoying an indulgent treat with out having to take the daily vitamins.

This company has been around since 2005 and founded by Leslie Barber and Meredith Lincoln.

They offer many Bellybar products of wholesome and delectable snacks and drinks to nourish women who are pregnant, new mothers, and moms-to-be including:


Bellybars are made with ingredients like real chocolate, almonds, granola, rice crisps, toasted oats, and brown rice syrup.
You can purchase Bellybar productsat nationwide wholesale at retail, grocery and natural food stores including Walgreens, Whole Foods Market, Target, Motherhood Maternity, A Pea in the Pod, Mimi Maternity, Babies ‘R’ Us, Publix, HEB, giggle and more.

Not much new

Today was one of those days that I did not want to get out of bed at all, but I did and I got to hang out with little man all day and my friend Karen came down and hung out with us. Justice sure likes Karen and they played together today and he gave her hugs and kisses. I love when my son is so lovey just wish sometimes he was more lovey to me and less of a stinker but he takes after me in that way so I guess I can not complain that much. I am going to keep this short because I need to go work on my avon since I did not do it today and I need to work on cookie lee. Post more tomorrow and some new giveaways and reviews. Happy Monday.

Justice mommy loves you and you are her very handsome little man

Long tiring day

Today was very long and tiring. Justice was overally tired even though he had a three hour nap and was very whinny and would not listen to me not matter what I said. He is in bed now and I have not heard him which is good because he needed sleep. I noticed today that he was having an allergic reaction to his diapers since they were not huggies because walmart was out the other day so I got something else. Well stupid mommy you should know better I have had to deal with this once before. So I ran out for what I thought would be a quick trip to get little man some huggies, I ended up having to go to three different stores before someone had his size and not only that I wound up at kmart and they only had one case, what is up are we having a diaper shortage. I am glad that the day is almost over and I am ready to go to bed and get a good night sleep and be in a better mood in the morning to go to church and then to my mom's house and then to my dad's it will be a long day but a good one.

What to do

Not sure what to do, Today is one o those days that I need to get a lot of things done to try to make some more money for my family and I know that Cookie Lee is what is going to keep me home with my son, but I am not sure just how to get people to see the benefit with cookie lee. I would love to promote again this month, but I need to get some others interested in doing what I am doing and where in the states.

Ok on another note, Justice this morning got a hold of my cover up and covered the bathroom, doors, hall way floor, the chair in the living room what a mess and that stuff does not want to come off things very well. It was stunned of how well that stuff stays and will not come off. I need to quit laying on the couch in the morning because that is when he decides that it is time to get into things and make messes, so on one hand it was my fault but on the other hand I wish the little man would stop being a stinker and making so many messes for me to make, I have gotten most of it cleaned up and I will work on the rest a little later today, I needed to take a break and make some phone calls to my family whom I call everyday to say hi and make sure that everything is alright.

Justice this morning helped me pick out his clothes for the day and he wanted his shirt with the hosicle (motorcycle) like mommy and daddy's. He was so proud that when we went to aaron' s work today that he had to show daddy his hosickle and let daddy know that it is hot, (he thinks that motorcycles are always hot that way he does not touch one when it really is).

I think I should clean house today and find something fun for me and Justice to do today since it is not so hot outside. Thank goodness I like the warmth but not when it is 90, that is just too hot for me and makes me just want to lay around all day and do nothing and Justice did not like the heat either. It made him grumpy and winny just like his momma.

I don't think most bloggers realize the value that commenting brings. Increased traffic to our own blogs aside, commenting also allows for:

  • Meeting new friends
  • Stumbling across old friends
  • Increasing the sense of community
  • Inspiring new blogging topics
  • Making valuable connections
  • Widening our audience
  • Broadening our resources
  • Well, you get the picture. The list goes on and on.

Harriet offers an awesome award to place on your blog, once you have met the challenge. However, the real reward comes simply by meeting new people who will forever affect your life. These new-found friendships will be cherished for years to come.





Thank you, Harriet for inspiring all of us to reach out to our fellow bloggers. You will never know how endearing you have become to us all!

Today was a day outside in the water all day since it was way to hot to sit in the house. Justice had so much fun and one of my friends came over and played with us. My yard looks flooded but it is ok, it was all in the name of fun. I am not a big person when it comes to water for some reason I do not like it and never really have but who cares my son does so I do what it takes to keep him happy. I also do not like the heat it makes me tired, grumpy and gives me headaches, but there is not much that I can do about it. I wish it was only 75 degrees all the time but washington can never keep the same temp. and it is either too cold or too hot.

Justice is wiped today from the heat and all the playing, but it is worth the fun. Hopefully he will sleep in but I am sure that will not happen


Justice decided to cover the kitchen in calamine lotion.

I got the chance to review some awesome shoes for my son whom is really hard to buy shoes for since he has big wide feet. See kai run shoes are the best shoes that I have found for my little man. They let his feet breathe and they are not too thight across the top of his little fat feet.

They’re soft, flexible, and supportive…the type of shoe that my little man needs on his feet. The soles are rubber and they are easy for little ones to walk in and if you look at the bottom they say cute things. Here are a few features about the shoes that make them perfect for a child’s developing feet:

  • Very flexible soles are healthy for developing feet.
  • Wide opening and toe box accommodate even the chubbiest little feet.
  • Velcro closure allows for adjustable fit and easy on and off.
  • Leather lining is breathable and durable.
  • Padded collar adds comfort and helps our shoes stay on little feet.
  • Quality Construction
  • Leather used for our footwear meets the most stringent available U.S. and international guidelines.
  • Sheepskin leather uppers are butter-soft and more durable by weight than cow leather used by many other brands.
  • Durable construction and rubber sole stand up to heavy play indoors and out.
All of the See kai run and smaller lines are cute but I was able to review the Jayce line and let me tell you they are to die for.If will continue to get these shoes for my son since they are something that he likes and I know that they are going to work well on his feet.

The shoes run from 17.00 dollars to around 40.00 but they are worth every penny that you will spend on them. The site is always coming out with new shoes to so to See kai run and check out what they have.


One of my lucky readers will have a chance to win a pair of see kai run shoes of their own from the see kai run line or smaller.

The classy nail files are made of crystal and hand painted. They come in over 110 different designs by local artists in the Grand Rapids, MI.

The filling surface is etched into the crystal and is guaranteed to never wear out. They come in three different sizes:
small 3 1/2"
medium 5 1/2'
large 7"
They are easy to clean you just wash it off in water and they work wonderfully on the littlest of fingers to grown adults. these nails files are all green and will last a life with so they are not filling up our landfills.

I would recommended these for the little ones so that you are not taking the chance of cutting their fingers when they move you can just file them with a file that really works
Head over to Classy Nails and check them out.
