Sponsored by

GIVEAWAY OVER! CONGRATULATIONS TO ROBYN FROM COOLESTMOMMY ON WINNING!!!! I am getting a bit miffed....this is the THIRD time I am typing this...everytime I go to save computer freezes and then proceeds to lose my work! So...I know it isn't your fault....but bear with me if my verbage isn't as "eloquent" this third time around! So....

I was given the opportunity to review a childs size T-Shirt from Chalkboard Tee by Class Attire. MaKenna is a big fan of "love" I ordered the heart one for her. She is also very I knew this would be a hit with her. It is basically a t-shirt...with a chalkboard on it! The kids...or adults...can write whatever they please and walk around for the day...changing it as their mood changes! Changing what is on the chalkboard is very easy too...and you don't have to carry an eraser. Just a simple damp cloth will do. We even used kleenix. Writing on the chalkboard was very ea…

Applied Labels Review

I got the opportunity to review Applied Labels, the dishwasher and laundry safe labels for kids and babies!
You can check them out for yourself at, or on twitter at labels, and on facebook at
They are all over the place! But they are a great product! Here is what they have to say:

The sleek, clean, sharp, classic alternative to labels that shout. Our extraordinarily tough labels are dishwasher & laundry safe. Award Winning Products. Lead, BPA & DEHP Free. Made in the USA!

Our labels have twice the adhesive strength of most labels. It is so strong that it is classified as permanent. The labels can be removed but it takes deliberate action. That means your labels should stay put until you want them removed.

We use a proprietary print technology to produce durable, long-lasting labels that easily withstand harsh environmen…

T-Shirt review

I was lucky enough to be selected to review T-shirt t-shirts.

Here is a picture of the shirt I received. Now...this is just a protype. They make CUSTOM you pick. Here is what they have to say:

If you are looking for bespoke printed T shirts for your workwear, team or you are developing a fashion collection we can offer advice, discuss the best options in terms of the blank garments and make the whole process easy and painless.
Over the years we have screen printed everything that we could have imagined and some which really did take us by surprise. Premium fashion brands have used our services, countless football teams, fast food chains and many a stag and hen party organizer has walked away with a smile after collecting their custom t shirts.

We can supply T shirts, hoodys, sweats etc from our vast array of suppliers including ScreenStars, Gildan, Hanes, Fruit of the Loom or you can source these yourself and we can do the screen printing for you.

CMT Premiers a new series called "Working Class"

On Friday, January 28th, CMT will premier a new series called Working Class with Melissa Peterman from "Reba".

WORKING CLASS focuses on Carli Mitchell (Melissa Peterman), a single mom from a rough and tumble background, trying to give her kids a better life by moving them to an upscale suburb. She quickly finds that making the transition to “the good life” is harder than she thought.

She's unwittingly befriended by her cranky neighbor, Hank (Ed Asner), her only “career” prospect is a glorified deli job at the local grocery store, and the man she falls for not only already has a girlfriend – but he’s also her boss, Rob (Patrick Fabian). With her ladies-man brother, Nick (Steve Kazee), to help her out (when he’s not acting like one of the kids himself), Carli faces the challenges of parenting, dating, and making friends in her new community by doing more with less, staying true to herself, and approaching each day with a touch of working class.

The Walk, By Shaun Alexander, book review

The Walk Description
Are you walking with God, dragging your feet, or running ahead of Him? Take the first step in living at God's pace.

When you start walking with God, it’s easy to misplace the emphasis. You might think it’s about seeking perfection or impressing God with your level of commitment. But God isn’t looking for perfection, and no matter how hard you try, you will never be able to impress him.

Walking with God is exactly what it says: God invites you to get in step with what he is doing in the world. When you walk with God, you allow him to set the pace for every aspect of your life. And that is when you discover faith and strength that overcome doubt, fear, and temptation.

Let Shaun Alexander help you get started on the greatest adventure possible. If you are ready to know God as your Walking Companion, you are ready to begin The Walk.

God invites you to grow through five stages of spiritual maturity

Walking with God is not a contest or a competition, and it has nothing to…

Linea Magazine RackBy Tonya from Omaha, NE on 1/9/2011 5out of 5 I love this! I use it for my children's school papers. I have four kids...and there are four it works fantastic! It is just the right size. The kids know when they get home, to put their papers in there. I look at them...and if they have anything that needs to be returned...I put it back in. They know to check it in the morning before they go to school. It has been a huge space counter to is now empty...and we can find things now!(legalese)

Millard South High Shooting

We live only a block away from this school....we see and hear most everything that goes on at least on the football and practice field daily. This is the school my kids will go to. Currently my kids go to the middle school and elementary school, only a few blocks away. They were on lock down for over an hour today. The middle school closed and locked all were directed to stay away from windows. the elementary school, they have an open floor plan which means, other than the front and back doors...there are no doors to the the kids had to get in corners under desks and laydown for over an hour. Poor babies. They at first thought it was a really long drill...but then they started getting nervous after awhile. MaKenna...bless her heart...just fell asleep on the floor...while Jake's heart was beating a little faster not knowing what was going on. middle school...just enjoyed getting to watch youtube with his teacher.

Such a senseless act. I REA…

Juno and GREAT DEAL!!

A few weeks ago I received a gift pack from the wonderful people at
I received an incredible bag...which I have fallen in love with...and an awesome DVD. The kids watched it and they really enjoyed it! Even the 11 year old!!! It is VERY cute! I actually now have two of the junobaby dvds. One is "Way to Go, Juno!" This one talks about facing fears through music. I am just going to tell you what the insert says,

"As a classical composer and mother, I believe that music has the power to inspire and nurture us creatively, intellectually and emotionally. Music allows us to feel and express ourselves more completely than words often can. My wish is for all children to be surrounded by beautiful and interesting sounds, and for them to keep music forever a part of their lives."
