Thermogenic postnatal giveaway 6/15

Image
Before I got pregnant I was happy sitting on 125. The day before I gave birth I was 163. Then the day I can home I was 140. Wow I lost 20lbs just giving birth, I was excited I knew I could lose the last 20lbs no problems. Well over the next few month it was heard to exercise and I was not watching what I was eating so now I am at 155 and size 12!!! I was SO not happy about this. That's when I came across Postnatal Thermogenic.


Bye Bye Babies R Us

Image
I used to LOVE Babies R Us, they are the only place that has my Tommee Tippee.



So I was really excited when I get there paper in mail that has the 20% off coupon with it. When I got this the first thing that came to my head was, "I am going to buy the Baby Brezza now." But I had a feeling that I would not be able to use it on that. I understand why its an expensive item. So then I said, "well I do need to get some Tommee Tippee sippy cups." Then I read the back and it says:


SPOON Foundation

Image
There are  so many kids out there that are in need. Many of whom we don't even think about. So lets talk about the SPOON Foundation.

Memorial Day Thank You

Image
It day mean a lot to many people. I am lucky to have my husband come home. He did his time in Iraq and Kosovo. With so many of our men and women leaving their family behind to make sure I can live a save live, I wanted to send a thank you out to them and their families. 


Originally Memorial Day was known as Decoration Day and became an official federal holiday back in 1971. This is because it was a time set aside to honor the nation's civil war dead by decorating their graves.


Today, Memorial Day is celebrated at Arlington National Cemetery with a small American flag that is placed on each grave. It is also customary that the President or the VP to give a speech honoring the dead and lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers.


This weekend I have the honor of spending the time with not just one person who served our country but three. Both my Auntie and Uncle served their time so I have live free.


I always try to say thank you when I see a man or woman in uniform. I think it bri…

Alexa....?

Image
Hey all I have some great news..... look up..... up.... look at the URL.....!!!!

That's right I have my own domain name! WOOT! I am starting to have things take off. But I have a big problem that YOU might be able to help me with.



My Alexa is not talk to me. I have a great score that I have worked hard for, but now that I have a new domain name it can't find it. Did you have this problem when you got your own domain name?

I opened a ticket but we all know how long that can take.

Super MOM

Image
Well it is now 3:30pm here and I am at a lost of what to do. I cleaned the bedroom, the kitchen, the living room, the bathroom. I even started to put things aside for my yard sell next weekend. Aiden just got done having his nap so I can't have one of them.

I emailed a bunch of companies. I entered all of my giveaways. So what do I do now?

I have never had a day like this where I am not doing something! What do you do when you have done everything?

That's it I'm moving....

Image
To Colorado! My husband and I have been thinking about where we want to call home. I have lived in Arizona all my life, up until I got married. Then I have lived in VA and MD. We just moved back here to AZ in 2010. My sweet sister in law moved to CO about a year ago now and LOVES IT.

My family is here in AZ but something just keeps letting me to move. So after a bunch of begging and pleading (not really) to my husband he said YES! So we are going to be moving after Aiden's first birthday. (November some time)

Smart Mom Teething Jewelry (review and giveaway) ends June 10

Image
As most of you know Aiden has his second tooth in. It broke through on May 12 and he has been chewing on everything he could get his hands on. Even his hands. So up until about two weeks ago I gave up on wearing jewelry. He's a baby, he pulls and bites on any thing I wear. That's when I found Smart Mom Jewelry. At first I was not to sure about letting him chew on a neckless. I was worried that it would teach him that he CAN pull and chew on them. But I out smarted him again. I just wore the nice one and the Smart mum one to teach him with he is allowed to play with.

To Brezza or to Bullet that is the question...

Image
I am sure by now most of you have hear of ether the The Baby Bullet or The Baby Brezza. Both are great for making baby food. But what one should I get? Lets break it down starting with the Bullet. The Bullet for $59.99 (through Facebook) and you get: The BatchbowlTwo short cupsThe power baseBaby Blend Blade and Milling BladeThe Pocket NutritionistThe Baby Bullet User Manual and CookbookSix Storage Cups with Date-Dial LidsThe Batch TraySo you get a lot of really cool stuff. How ever the Bullet does not cooks, purées or reheats. So if you are making something like sweet potato you need to cook it first. 
Now the Brezza. The Brezza is $99.99 and it come by its self. You can go to their web site and down load their cook book though. However the good thing about this one is that it cooks the food. Or if you need to reheat something it steams it so you don't have to put it in the microwave. 
So with to buy, the one that has more for less, or the one that cook the food....? Here is where I ne…

I was looking at some old pictures I saw this on the computer! My husband made it about 3 years ago. Word to the wise don't mess with me lol!

Intelligender Review and Giveaway

Image
What a fun way to find out if you are having a boy or girl. Intelligender is the only test out there that lets you know with 90% accuracy rate. About a year ago I got this kit (back when it was $50) to find out what I was having. You could only tell as soon as 10 weeks, with an ultrasound its about 16 to 21 weeks. I don't know about you but I hate surprises and waiting! In this kit you get four main things. A cup, (to pee in) a syringe, (to collect urine) a test and the instructions. It is really easy to use there are six main steps. Oh and remember you can't have sex 48 hours before taking this test!

72 hour kits part 2

Now that you have the right idea down on what a 72 hour kit is and what you need. Here are a few things that you might not have thought about needing.

If you have a baby:

Cloth diapers (I say this only because of how fast kids grown out of the disposable ones and you never run out of cloth as long as you can clean them)Formula (if you are not breast feeding)Baby foodBottles Wipes (cloth one or wet ones)ToysClothsPersonal Documents and Money:
(Place these items in a water-proof container!)

Legal Documents (Birth/Marriage Certificates, Wills, Passports, Contracts, etc)Vaccination PapersCashCredit CardPre-Paid Phone Cards


Random things:

MapPicture of family (in case anyone gets lost)




Update your 72 Hour Kit every six months (put a note in your calendar/planner) to make sure that: all food, water, and medication is fresh and has not expired; clothing fits; personal documents and credit cards are up to date; and batteries are charged.
Small toys/games are important too as they will provide some co…

72 hour kits

Image
With all the things that are happing in the world today its a good idea to have a 72 hour kit. You can't plan for everything and this is just a kit to help you get through the first two day. My church has really push this and it had helped many people.  While living in Maryland two years ago, I was at work when there was a tornado warring. My husband who was at home could feel the whole house shaking. As fast as he could he got us a 72 hour kit together and he did a great job for getting it done in less then five minutes. After that we have always had a kit together just in case.  But with having Aiden now we had to rethink some things. You know needing diapers and cloths for him and food. But here is what a 72 hours kit should have give or take a few things. 
Food and Water: Granola Barscanned tuna, beans, Vienna sausages and thing you can eat with out having to heat up. (try to get the ones with the "pop-top" so you don't need a can opener)Caned Juicewater (4 liters pe…

The Portable Pediatrician Book Giveaway (ends 6/2)

Image
I love this book! Can I just say that from the get go, it's the best book ever. As a new mom I am always worried about when to take Aiden to the doctors or if there is something more I can do. This book goes over everything you need to know about your child's health. It even goes over the symptoms and how to treat them.

Here is a great video about the book:

Start a Pre School at home

Image
As you my know by now I am a stay at home mom. I would love to go back to work just to make a little bit of money but I don't want to leave my little one. So I was thinking about opening a at home daycare, but I would have to have a lot of kids just to make some good money. Do I really want to have that many kids for 40 hours a week, and taken care of my 5 month old? Not really, there has got to be a better way to make money at home. Well thanks to Business to Blogger I found this great web site called Start a PreSchool. They tell you how to make anywhere from $1000 a month up to even $4000, and with out working 40 hours a week.

Swim class

Image
Living in Arizona it seems like every summer you hear about kids drowning in pools. In 2004, there were 3,308 unintentional drownings in the United States, an average of nine kids per day. Having a new born I knew I wanted to get him into swimming classes. I don’t have a pool, but it is still great to teach them about water safety at any age.  So I had a friend tell me about Hubbard Family Swim School. Its free for kids 4 weeks to 6 months, once a week for half an hour. After that it is $75 a month. So I got Aiden in the classes, this was his second week (we could not go last week with him having bronchitis). There is also no more then six kids per class.

Happy Birthday to....

Tommee Tippee giveaway

Image
Just in case you did not know yet I a a Tommee Mommie big time. When Aiden was first born I had him on a few bottle but he had problems going back to breastfeeding after the bottle. So I heard about Tommee Tippee and went to Babies R US to give them a try. After the first day Aiden was latching on even better then before. Because I love it so much I got something for you, I am going to be giving away a:

He's dead

It all over the news that we have Osama Bin Laden's body and that he was killed! Thank God that that man is no longer hurting anyone. They have DNA to prove that it is him.
