PeppyParents: Keekaroo Cafe booster Review & Giveaway


With Sweet Pea turning two we were wanting to transition her from a high chair to the table, but we did not have a booster seat. With all the different choices and styles of booster seats out there I was a bit baffled to even know where to begin. At about this time PeppyParents.com approached me to do a review for them of the Keekaroo Cafe Booster.

I was super excited when the booster arrived and I set it up right away for Sweet Pea. Once I had the booster all strapped in properly Sweet Pea climbed right up in it and sat down. She was so excited to have her own seat at the dinner table.

PishPoshBaby.com Review & Giveaway


I recently received a $50 gift certificate for PishPoshBaby so I did some much needed shopping for Sweet Pea's bedroom. She was in need of some extra sets of sheets for her bed. I was really liking PishPoshBaby's new and stylish website design. It was very easy to navigate and find things on it.
 
PishPoshBaby has a great selection of quality name brand items and a variety of selections to choose from. They have such great prices and you can find really good deals in their clearance section as well. I browsed all the different categories of items while on the website and made a pretty big "I Want List". But look how cute these sheets are that I picked out for Sweet Pea's bedroom!

nuNAAT For Curly Hair Review & Giveaway




Ok confession time here for those that do not know me I do not have straight hair. Nope it takes me 30-45 minutes to get straight hair so I usually pull my hair up in a ponytail most of time, because I hate the kinks and curls. I have to admit I have hated my curls for a long time well that is until I discovered a great line of products that are made especially for curly hair.

VeggieTales Lettuce Love One Another Review

How about a Valentine’s Day special- VeggiesTales style. Yes I know Valentine's Day has past but I feel you should treat the ones you love as if it was Valentine's Day everyday. Just as God treats and loves us the same everyday and not more on one certain day of the year.  
 
As you know we are a VeggiesTales loving household. It’s always great to find good kid friendly movies that tell the stories of the bible in a way our children understand.

Shabby Apple Review & Giveaway


I recently had the great pleasure of working with a wonderful company that many of you know for their wonderful vintage style dresses. Shabby Apple is a wonderful company who has what I feel is the best selection on vintage inspired dresses. I also love the charity work that Shabby Apple does in the world to help women. I am a big fan of supporting companies that does charity work.

Shabby Apple loves to help women dress but they are also committed to helping women live as well. Thus they are supporting the fight against global poverty by partnering with Accion-a non-profit organization with the mission of giving people the financial tools they need to work their way out of poverty. Shabby Apple donates 5% of its net income to support work with 62 microfinance institutions in 31 countries throughout the world.

Last night we took the boys up to Cleveland to see Monster Jam. This was the first time the boys including Jake got to see a Monster Truck show. The boys have not stopped talking about the show all day. They took all of their goodies to my in-laws to show them as well. While Bubba and Papa were looking through the Souvenir book, Bubba also talked about all the different trucks he saw and the autographs he got at the show.

I got to review the Happily Ever After Whipped Body Creme from EdenFantasys'. When I picked the body creme I was expecting to get a small jar of creme but I was pleasantly surprised by it's size when it arrived. I was also worried about how strong the scent would be and if it would bother my asthma. I must say that at first I did not like the strong scent. It smelt like Honeysuckle to much for my taste, but after I applied it; it smelt more like grapefruit which smelled very good.

With Valentine's Day right around the corner all the guys are starting to plan what they will be buying that special lady in there lives. I am hoping that this post will help a few guys along with making the right choice for that special lady. Everyone knows women love jewelry, chocolate and flowers.

I know I love all three and I have a wonderful husband that does his best to get them for me when we can afford them. Although he doesn't buy me much chocolates though and I think that's because I make better then what you buy in the store.

Travel Guide: Sand Cay Resort



I am so excited to tell you about the first Resort being featured in our 2013 Travel Guide! Sand Cay Beach Resort is located on the beautiful shores of Longboat Key, Florida. The same shores I spent many summers on when I was growing up. I am very excited to be able to take my children here this summer. They are already asking if it's time to go to Florida yet. I think they are tired of all  this cold and snow already. But on the bright side the groundhog said an Early Spring is on its way. 

Sand Cay Beach Resort offers 60 fully furnished individually owned two bedroom, two bath condo's each measuring about 1,100 sq. ft. They are available for rent on a daily, weekly & monthly basis. Plus, they are all just steps from the Gulf of Mexico!
