Reviews, giveaways and memes - Jumpin Beans



Okay, I have to admit, up until about a month or so, I have NEVER heard of the name MUTSY.

But, now..
I am totally obsessed!
I think that they have THE BEST items!
I have not actually tried them out personally, but looking at their website, I love it!
Their products are so modern and cutting design!

Well, they have a new stroller that they are introducing.
It is called the Transporter and it is all that, and then a bit more!
I really like the grey one...
Hint, hint!

(If anyone is looking at getting Broxton an amazing present!)
It goes up to 55 pounds!

From their website:
This sporty 4 wheeler is characterized by its very compact and easy fold. Transporter has an easily adjustable reclining seat, a 4-position height adjustable push bar and its extreme comfort of use. Its 2 front swivel wheels make the Transporter extremely flexible and manoeuvrable. All 4 wheels are removable, allowing even greater compact volume when the stroller is folded. Your Transporter comes with a comfortably padded seat suitable for babies 3 months to 55 lbs, a front bar, an extra large, protective hood and an accessible shopping basket.

Don't you think we need it?
Head on over to Mutsy and check it out!
While you are there, look at how compact it is once it is folded! I bet your stroller now can't do that! (I know ours can't!)

Seriously, this company was founded in 1935, to still be around today, they must be doing something right!
Let me know if you get one!

UPDATED - Pediped and Make a Wish

This has been extended until November 5th!

I think this is wonderful and I just wanted to share...
Where I used to work had a Make A Wish Foundation right down the street.
It was always so heartwarming to ride by and see what wish was granted.
You know, the simplest things to those kids make their day.
I was lucky enough to get to witness a few of those wonderful children getting to meet the world famous Budweiser Clydesdale's one year! Talk about a moment to never forget...

Well, Make A Wish and Pediped have teamed up and I want to share with you the amazing auction getting ready to start!

More than 50 well known personalities have autographed pediped baby shoes!
The auction runs from October 25 through November 5 .
Go here for more information.
Here are a few of those who have joined up for this ...

Aloha Friday #6

I love Fridays....
I think I like them so much because of Aloha Fridays.
You know, Kailani over at Island Life does this...
In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they take easy. That and of course, get ready for the weekend! So, she has you post a question... and answer hers.
Very simple...
Here is mine:

How did you come up with your blog name?

My answer:
Broxton likes to jump. We have an exersaucer for him. He jumps in it... to the point now that he moves it across the room by jumping! :) but the name... he jumps when someone tries to hold him in their lap. he jumps in the exersaucer... everywhere... HE JUMPS!
So, that is where it came from..
Go ahead, answer mine, go visit Kailani at Island Life and answer hers, post your own...

Mom's surgery

Her surgery went well.
BUT, she has to stay overnight.
My grandparents are there waiting.
My dad is REALLY BUSY at work and could not be there...
I know it is killing him too...
So, now I am making her an overnight bag.
That right there is so funny!
I pack way to much...
How am I to know what to pack?
I put a gown, toothbrush and toothpaste.
I also put a few magazines.
You know, the pain meds MIGHT wear off...
Then she MIGHT get BORED and want to read..
Need to be prepared!
Now that I think about it. .
She might want a brush for her hair.
I was going to pack her makeup.
She "paints" her face to just sit around the house all day.

You know, like on tv and in the movies when they wake up..
How their hair and makeup is perfect?
Well, I am not saying her hair is perfect, but I am saying she ALWAYS had makeup on.
I am surprised she didn't put it on to get to the hospital and then take it off before surgery.
I wonder if she even thought about that..
Anyways, I am NOT packing the makeup, because then I have to pack like a WHOLE DRAWER of JUNK she uses..

Thanks for the prayers...
Now if we can just have a speedy recovery!


Not just a tummy ache

So, my mom has been complaining that her stomach was bothering her...
She went to the doctor on Monday to set her mind at ease.

Well, today is only Tuesday, but how about she has to have surgery on Thursday.
She has to have her gall bladder removed.
I started to look it up online to understand more.
See the post about the fact I could be Broxton's pediatrician because I look up stuff so often)

Well, I figured I would just wait until tomorrow and then I can look things up.
She meets the doctor tomorrow for them to explain it all to her.

Will you all do me a favor?
Will you please keep my mom in your thoughts and prayers?
Let the doctors be able to go and do what needs to be done...
and let my mom have a speedy recovery.

Thank you all so much!


So, I am really not sure what is going on...
The Internet here has been all messed up!

That just does not work for me...
Think about it..
My husband is in AFGHANISTAN, that is how we talk...
I was so sad that it kept "trying to connect"
At first, I thought it was his connection...
Then I realized, nope...
It was mine..

We FINALLY got to talk for a little bit..
Then it started again...
I could not get to my blog, I could not check my email.
I could not read the news (and as well as

That then leads to this..
What did I do, before the Internet?
I mean.. really?

I use the Internet for pretty much everything.
I actually think I could be a pediatrician with all the research I do online for Broxton.
Yes, I know that I should not look up stuff so much, but still...
I do!
I worry at times that I am going to end up like the people in those BING commercials..
But then I remember...
I can not remember things long enough to do all that!
LOL, I tried taking the Ginkgo Biloba (NO, I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO SPELL IT!) pills once to try and help my memory..
But yeah, I kept forgetting to take them...
I am not really bad, but I am pretty forgetful!

Have a great week..
Monday has passed!
