Having a little boy in preschool, you would be surprised how much I learn about all the "cool" kid things... Yes, he is a boy - but he can tell me all about how his friends love Lalaloopsy!!! Now, I have never in my life heard of a lalaloopsy... until he came home talking about the cute little dolls!   Now, we have seen them in stores and we have a DVD of it now.  I have not watched it yet, as I was waiting until he had a playdate with a girl - although I know one of his little friends is really into her, so we might be gifting this to her soon!  ( I think they are adorable and can honestly say if we had a little girl here, I believe she would have several of these dolls!)  Once again - if you are looking for cute…

My brother enjoyed the Ninja Turtles when he was younger... and I am so excited that Broxton has followed in his Uncle's footsteps.  He really enjoys them and besides having the ninja turtle toys, he also has a couple of their DVDs in his little cartoon library!  Now, we are adding a new one : Mutagen Mayhem!   Just need to get his Uncle over for a little uncle-nephew bonding time!!!  This would be a great addition for a cute little Easter basket!!!

My mom could possibly have the driest hands I know.  Like sandpaper dry - but luckily I have not had that problem... I try and keep them moisturized and lucky for me, Marc is one to always be putting lotion on his hands too!  I guess it isn't that lucky for him, since he complains of dryness ALL THE TIME.  He is constantly putting lotion on and he ALWAYS packs lotion in his overnight bag.  Since I reviewed the Vaseline Spray Lotion in the past, I was given the chance to review their new Mens Line!   I was excited to do so, knowing how much Marc uses lotion.   Equally as excited was Marc!  He was quick to say "Oh, Thank you!"  and immediately had to try it out.  How about he really enjoys it and has even decided…

 As long as I can remember, I have been a fan of lotions/soaps and pens... That has always been a weakness of mine.  I know, weird.. but it is the truth.  I normally have several scents of soaps and lotions at all times... and you can NEVER have too many pens. (Especially if you work in the restaurant business.  That actually goes for the lotions and soaps too!)
I was recently given the opportunity to check out Mrs. Meyers foaming hand soap and I tell ya, love it!
I had to place the lavender soap in the downstairs bath... It has lavender colored walls and I just thought it went together perfectly!  
The first time I used it, I knew it was love at first use and I really want to try the watermelon scent now!!!!

We have not really fallen into the stereotypical "boy/girl" things yet... But I am sure it is coming soon.  I mean, Broxton is in school and hears all sorts of things on a daily basis.  He will sit and watch shows with me that are somewhat geared more towards girls.  No, he doesn't normally ask for them - but he will watch and snuggle with me!    We were sent 2 more books + digital codes from Disney Books and this time they were centered on Sofia the First.   When this show first came out on TV, we watched.  He wasn't THAT into it... but he did enjoy it with me.  I sat down and read these books the other day.  He wasn't home yet and I wanted to see if I thought he would enjoy them...   Answer is?  Yes- I…

I for one will never say that I get tired of hearing someone say they love me...   Can you?  That being said - what better gift - for any occasion - than the Guess How Much I Love You DVD.  With 7 episodes and over 80 minutes, this would be great tucked in an Easter Basket!!!!

I received the TUMS products mentioned in my post for free from GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare.

I hope I don't jinx myself by saying this... But I have luckily never had a problem with heartburn.  Even when I was pregnant with Broxton, people would warn me that I would be dealing with heartburn quite often, but I was one of the lucky ones.  I did have a small occurrence for a couple weeks right there at the very end, but as I said - small... So no big deal!    Marc on the other hand?   Give him a meal with any form of tomato sauce and he will complain of heartburn before it is over...  Specifically Spaghetti, Pizza and even chili gets him going... I guess I get a big WIFE F…

Having lived in a dorm for 2 years and then an apartment for quite a few after that, I am all about trying to save space.  That being said, I am always so fascinated by the way they can concentrate products to use less for the same job - therefor taking up LESS space and leaving LESS trash!!!    We were recently sent a sample to try out and I was SO SURPRISED to see how small an amount you need to do a load of laundry. Literally it was so small, I was so concerned that it was not going to do anything....
Well, I decided to give it a try - and it seems to have worked!

I will be the fist to admit I am not a big coffee drinker.  I do enjoy a nice cup on occasions... like when we are on vacation... or if it is really cold...  but when I do have a cup, I want it to be a nice and sweet drink.  Not just plain coffee.  Plain and Black?  Leave that to my dad and brother.   When the single cup servers came out, I was all over wanting one... I asked for one for Christmas... I left hints (such as emailing links of it) and yet 2 holidays have come and gone... with no Keurig for me.   Then, the cold came this year... and it seemed like Marc was stopping at the store to grab a nice hot beverage more and more... (Yes, if he was headed home, he would bring me one.. but most times he was grabbing on one th…
