Want to do me a favor?

As I mentioned in my ProFlowers post... It has been almost one year since I started blogging.
I wanted to blog for a bit, but I really had NO idea where to start.
I reached out for help with a blogger of a blog I followed.
Melissa over at Frugal Creativity was awesome!
She took the time to answer ALL of my questions and even helped give me a few pointers!
She was the very first one to comment on my blog and I am so thankful for our friendship.
I wanted to write this post closer to my "bloggy birthday" but I also want to help Melissa out... So, I am asking you a favor... She has entered a contest at the Chocomize blog and she would appreciate your vote.
It is really easy to vote for her, I just did!
If you have a minute, will you go and vote to show her the support that she has shown me?! Just click on the Chocomize blog link and then vote on "Almond All the Way." Sounds delicious, doesn't it?! Thanks guys!

Aloha Friday - # 43ish

Aloha my friends!!!
It is Friday, sit back, relax and take it easy... Stop on by and visit Kailani though!
My question this week:
Do you have a land line or cell phone? or both?
We have both... We were going to go with just cell phones... and we never use the house phone... But, with our cable service, it was easier and cheaper to get the bundle...
Have a great weekend everyone!

Finally! Something that works! - Tommee Tippee Review

Image
If you have seen us out, chances are you have noticed the struggles we have had with finding a cup that works for Broxton. Every single cup we try has some sort of problem! (Mainly the spillage!)
Luckily for me, it seems as though that problem is finally over! I am so happy that TommeeTippee has FINALLY came over to the U.S.A. The Mom Bloggers Club has a TommeeTippee Summer Tour going on right now, so we were able to review a few of the TommeeTippee product line! We were sent a Stage 4 Truly Spill-proof Water Bottle, as well as the Easi-Mat and Weaning Bowls with the lid and spoon. This is all part of the "Explora" line...

We have been using them for almost every meal now!
The easi-mat is seriously AWESOME!!!
Let me just tell you about it... It is this little mat that pretty much sticks to the high chair. There is a suction on top that you put the bowl on. Now, Broxton's bowl of food is not going anywhere!!!! To release the bowl, you just pull this little piece and boom,…

ProFlowers- Review

Image
Did you realize that next month I will be 31? Also, next month is my one year bloggy birthday!!!!

With that in mind...
I recently had the chance to review a birthday basket from ProFlowers.
They have so many wonderful items to choose from and believe me... I looked and looked and looked for what I thought would be best for us! Having the boys here, I did not want to go with all the wonderfully delicious candy!
I started to look at all the fruit baskets they had to offer. I finally decided that the Classic Fruit Basket would be perfect!!!

The boys immediately wanted to eat it as soon as it arrived!
Marc grabbed a red apple and he chomped in to it! Of course, that meant that Broxton had to help daddy eat it!
The boys knew at that point it was fair game!
Everyone had a piece of fruit... This basket has a bit of everything!
Red apples? Check!
Green apples? Check!
Oranges? Check!
Grapefruit? Check!
Pears? Check!

I did manage to steal a taste of the fruit the first go round! They all loved it and wanted …

When I was ONE... My grandad went and bought me a tricycle.
Obviously, I did not need it forever!
So, my mom gave it to her friend to let her daughter (and later on, her son) use it...

How sweet is this?
She kept it and has now given it to Broxton!!!!
Yes, I will be 31 next month.... This sucker is OLD!!!!

Omnibalm- Review and Giveaway

Remember when I posted asking for your tips in dealing with sunburn?
Well, I found out that 20 years ago, a pharmacist was looking for a cure to help with his sunburn!
After much research, he found out that Tea Tree Oil had the answer to his problem!
Luckily for me, I was able to review what he developed...
Omnibalm
Chad with Omnibalm sent me samples of both the Omnibalm Skin Relief Cream


As well as the Omnibalm Daily Foot Therapy


Marc and I have both been able to use these products!
While the boys were here, we went to the pool pretty much everyday... and even then, sometimes it was twice a day. I got pretty burnt in the beginning! I think even the boys felt bad for me! But once I got the Skin Relief Cream, I was able to apply that after my shower and I could immediately feel a bit of relief. It was as though the lotion quickly absorbed into my fried skin and started to rehydrate.
The lotion is pretty thick and creamy and once you start to apply it, you think oh no, this is going to be …

Organix-South - Review

I am not sure if any of you have heard of the Neem Tree before, but I have been hearing it mentioned lately and of course, I had to check it out.Seems as though the Neem Tree is able to use all of its parts to make up different Neem products. If you would like more information on the Neem Tree, please look at what all I found on Wikipedia.
With all the talk of Neem, you will then hear of Organix-South. They are based out of Florida and they are tops in the manufacturing of Neem Products for the world! Betty with Organix-South sent me a few items to review.
The shampoo and conditioner she sent was a nice surprise!
I was a bit curious as to how the shampoo would work, seeing as though it came out rather runny, almost like water. I had to scoop it back into the bottle! I was expecting the lotion texture that most shampoo's tend to be! After I worked it into my hair, it had a very nice lather. Not the thick and foamy lather that you get from soaps, but a nice subtle lather that le…
