Fairhaven Health Review


My husband and I have been going back and forth about when to start trying for another little bundle of joy. We were all set to go until he got laid off so that put a damper on things! However, I know we will one day so I still love to review items that have anything to do with pregnancy, babies, maternity, you name it!
So when I saw Fairhaven Health I was really excited because it gives me something to look forward to when we finally are ready. Fairhaven Health is a great place to get all of your fertility and pregnancy items. The products are great for couples struggling to get pregnant as well as items to help if you are pregnant or nursing such as supplements, and fertility monitors.

"Our product lines follow the natural progression from preconception to pregnancy to nursing. Our preconception products focus on fertility awareness and ovulation prediction, helping couples learn about their fertility and anticipate when they are most likely to conceive. Nutritional fertility supplements like FertilAid & FertileCM provide balance and support enhanced fertility for both women and men. Once couples receive the good news, products like Pregnancy Plus Prenatal and Pregnancy Plus Omega3 promote the prenatal health of a developing baby and help ensure pregnancy wellness for the mother - from the first days of pregnancy through the first years of nursing."

I got to try the Fertile-Focus personal ovulation microscope and Pregnancy Wheel and Ovulation Calendar. The microscope is so neat. All you do is take a drop of your saliva and allow it to dry on the microscope. If you see a crystal pattern it means you are ovulating. So simple! I also love the Pregnancy Wheel because it is helpful before you conceive as well as during your pregnancy.

To check out all of the helpful products that Fairhaven Health has to offer to help your pregnancy visit their site!

Shushybye Books and CD's Review and Giveaway

Lately the boys have REALLY been fighting going to sleep. After a million trips to the bathroom and drinks of water and screaming "I'm scared!" I am fed up! Not to mention that their room is upstairs and I hate going up and down them (heaven forbid I get a work out!). So I recently received two books from the Shushybe series and two music cd's and they have been a huge help.



What is Shushybye? "SHUSHYBYE is a preschool entertainment and lifestyle brand designed to inspire children to look forward to sleep time and help parents prepare their children for sleep in a fun and loving way that encourages imagination. Importantly, SHUSHYBYE is designed to help create healthful sleep habits for toddlers and preschoolers.
SHUSHYBYE is also innovative and imagninative entertainment - including an all-new television series entitled SHUSHYBYE BABY airing on national children's channel BabyFirstTV (http://www.babyfirsttv.com/) and Comcast Video On Demand (http://www.selectondemand.com/)."



Shushybye is also a magical land where dreams are made. But if you don't go to sleep you won't get your dreams from the dream box! I loved reading Shushybye Close Your Eyes, and Shushybye Sleepover Surprise to the boys. As I read to them I could tell they really understood that if they don't got to sleep then they won't get their dreams! What is also cool is that each book comes with a cd that reads the story and shares music.


The boys also keep asking me to play the Shushybye cd's from the Shushybye Dream Band. The music is really fun and relaxing. I am so thankful for the Shushybe series and am so happy I get to share it with you! One lucky winner will receive what I reviewed- two books- Close Your Eyes and Sleepover Surprise and 2 CDs -Close Your Eyes and Shushybye and . How awesome is that?

To enter please visit the site and tell me what else Shushybye has to offer (more than just books and music!) For additional entries please leave separate comment for each of the following:

Kissing and Cooking Book Review and Giveaway

I was so thankful when Kim Reutzel agreed to let me review her book Kissing and Cooking: A Recipe to Add Spice and Romance To Your Marriage. When I first started blogging I did it because I was lonely while Cody was gone with work. Fast forward to now and blogging has taken a good chuck of my time and almost all of my nights. Now that Cody hasn't been working we see each other all day and at night we have been doing separate things ( I think so we can have our own time so we don't drive each other crazy!)

We have been talking about how we want to be more productive with our time once the boys go to bed (not that blogging isn't productive :) ) so I was so excited to get this book. Kissing and Cooking is a book that offers advice and encouragement on strengthening your marriage and uses cooking to help. Kim has a B.A. in Christian counseling and I just love how she includes God as part of the process. I also can't wait to try the recipes! The first one Cody and I are going to try is Philly Steak Delight! Yummy!

Whether your marriage is really struggling or just needs a little lift, this book is so great at helping you stay away from divorce! Kim has graciously agreed to give one reader a copy of the book!

Thinktivity Toys Review and Giveaway

It's no surprise that we have toys in our house. The boys love them and I really like when the toys are educational. That's why Thinktivity made a real impression on me. Thinktivity toys offer fun with a purpose. An example of this would be the cute Feed and Learn Singing Frog. With this toy you are given several animal cards and you put one in the frog's mouth and are asked questions and learn songs. The questions get the child to think about numbers, colors, and letters.

Jackson and Ki really like this toy. I like how it encourages them to participate and gets them thinking. Thinktivity toys can be found at Target and make a great birthday present!

The wonderful people at Thinktivity are giving a reader their own Feed and Learn Singing Frog! To enter please tell me who you would give this toy to. For additional entries please leave a separate comment for each of the following:

Juice Beauty Review

Ok, you must know by now that I love anything organic. I really believe that it's not only important to put good things in your body but what you put on it as well. With Juice Beauty is up to 95% certified organic! I also believe that just because a product is a natural or organic, doesn't mean that it doesn't have amazing benefits.

Juice Beauty was kind enough to allow me to sample
Juice Beauty Green Apple Cleansing Gel
Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel Sensitive
Juice Beauty Oil Free Moisturizer
Juice Beauty Hydrating Mist
Juice Beauty Green Apple Antioxidant Moisturizer SPF 15

and let me tell you, they totally rock! The Cleansing gel is so gentle and leaves my skin feeling soft. I normally have a hard time finding a cleanser that is gentle enough to remove my eye makeup but I had no problems with this gel. The peel is great. It only takes ten minutes and boy did it help clear up my pores on my nose! I followed with the Hydrating Mist and the moisturizer. They helped calm and cool my skin after the peel. I also like the moisturizer with the SPF because I HATE wearing sunblock on my face. I feel like it is just clogging my pores, so it was nice to use something natural and healthy for my skin!

Juice Beauty also has some great products for men such as shaving and bath products. Men can be healthy and beautiful too! I highly recommend Juice Beauty for anyone who want a safe product with wholesome ingredients that gives results. For more info you can check out Juice Beauty's site at juicebeauty.com.

Eve Organics Mineral Makeup Giveaway




Ever since I have switched from liquid foundation to mineral makeup I have really noticed a difference in my skin. My skin feels like it can breathe when I use mineral makeup and I seem to have fewer breakouts. I don't think that I could ever go back to liquid. At Eve Organics they have a really great line of mineral makeup that I know my skin absolutely loves! Eve Organics mineral makeup ( and all of their products) are "free of parabens, preservatives, chemicals, and bismuth oxychloride (known to cause skin reactions, clog and enlarge pores)." So I am putting something pure on my skin!


Here is so more info from the site : " This purely natural mineral makeup reflects light to provide a healthy glow to your complexion. The zinc oxide and titanium dioxide in the foundations have an inherent SPF and are natural anti-inflammatories. This characteristic makes mineral makeup not only healthy for your skin (you can even sleep in it), but calming for rosacea and other skin conditions."



I have to admit I hate washing my face at night and frequently leave my makeup on and never have had any problems. Eve Organics sent me the Invisible Setting Powder and the Joyful Blush. The Invisible Setting Powder is used as the last step in putting on your makeup and I can't live without it! It really helps set my makeup so that it stays in place longer and absorbs my oils. I really loved the blush as well. The shade is just right for me and makes my skin feel so soft.
Eve Organics doesn't just have makeup. They have several products that are really good for your skin. I REALLY want to try the Super Oxi D Acne Serum & Moisturizing Complex . It helps keep your complexion clear!
Eve Organics is giving one lucky winner a choice between a blush or setting powder! To enter please go to Eve Organics and tell me a product you would like to try. For additional entries please leave a separate comment for each of the following:

Smart Mom Jewelry Review and Giveaway

I love jewelry but so do my boys and when they were little babies they loved to pull and suck on my necklaces. So when I saw Smart Mom Jewelry I wish I would have thought of this idea! Smart Mom Jewelry was created by moms so they know what should go into the jewelry to make it so practical! Here is some info from their site:

We use only the highest-quality, phthalate-free, federally approved silicone in our Teething Bling™ line. The material is non-toxic, latex-free, food–safe, even dishwasher-friendly! It is the same silicone used in many other popular teething products and SGS test reports are available upon request. Although we stress that this is adult jewelry not intended for children to wear, all of our pendants come with a breakaway clasp as an added safety feature.

I got to sample two of the necklaces and they are so stylish! I know that the next baby I have will be so entertained with them that it will be perfect for when I am holding him or her in line at the store, talking to someone, or even at church when I just want to listen and relax! I really like that there is a great selection of colors to choose from so you can get several different ones to go with different outfits! This "teething bling" makes a great baby shower present. So many celebs are wearing Smart Mom Jewelry like Tori Spelling, and Angela Bassett!

So for all of my stylish moms who need a little bling, Smart Mom Jewelry is giving one of my readers a set of jewelry including a necklace and two coordinating bangles similar to the one pictured above! Winner gets to choose the colors. How awesome is that?

Soy Spacasso Fathers Day Giveaway

This is my first time reviewing a skincare product that considers itself unisex- so I am excited to share this as I have a couple of male readers and lots of readers who have a significant other that would benefit from Soy Spacasso. What is Soy Spacasso?

Here is a little info about them: "SOY SPACASSO is a Des Moines, Iowa based company dedicated to creating and producing premium, healthy and appealing soy skin care products that we promise will rejuvenate your body, mind and spirit....naturally.
Bringing about a transformation in the beauty and skin care industry through the use of natural soy based skin care, candles and fragrance products, the SOY SPACASSO unisex line provides an environmentally friendly alternative to the lanolin and mineral oil skin care products that clog pores which are commonly used.

SOY SPACASSO only use natural soybean lipids and shea oil along with natural ingredients to create a completely botanic and antioxidant rich product line to enhance your skin, health and well being.

In the same way that natural and botanic skin care products are important for women, they are also important for men's skincare. SOY SPACASSO understand men's complex skincare needs and knows they have long been overlooked in the skincare industry, especially with new and vital formulations that are essential to maintain young looking skin.

Our exclusive new range of botanic and natural skincare products for men called MANSTYLE regenerates and renews skin cells and brings maximum moisture that combats the signs of aging from the very first fine line.

The SOY SPACASSO Company mission is simple: to provide a luxurious and high quality unisex product line, and provide utmost commitment of service to our appreciated customers."

I received the Sweet Vanilla Sea Salt Foaming Body Scrub and wanted to eat it! It smells so yummy. The scent however wasn't overpowering or a fake fragrance. I really enjoyed using it because I knew it was safe. The other thing I noticed was that my skin didn't feel oily after I got out of the shower- just soft! I have had problems in the past where my skin would be greasy and start to break out from the oils in the scrub but not with Soy Spacasso!

The wonderful people at Soy Spacasso are giving a reader her own Sweet Vanilla Sea Salt Foaming Body Scrub AND one to the man in her life! What a great Father's Day present.

Baby Quasar Review and Giveaway!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



I am REALLY excited to share this next product with you and even more excited to see who wins it. The Baby Quasar is an amazing skincare tool used by the pros that is now available due to high demand.

"Using superior technology developed by NASA for healing in space, the Baby Quasar works by stimulating the production of collagen, thereby diminishing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and enlarged pores."


If it's good enough for NASA, it's good enough for me! The Baby Quasar uses "24 LEDS in four discrete wavelengths of red and infrared light". I have been using this tool twice a week for a couple of weeks and just after two uses I noticed a significant change in my skin. My face felt plup for hours after I used it. I also have pores by my nose on my cheeks that began to shrink! I have always hated them and now they are going away. I also have noticed an overall clearing up of old spots and scars.


The Baby Quasar takes about 26 minutes to use at a time. Using natural light it helps clear up breakouts, reduce pore size , Rosacea, Age spots, wrinkles and much more. There are no side affects! I love my Baby Quasar and I know you will too. That is why I am so happy that the wonderful people at Quasar Light Therapy are giving one winner their very own Baby Quasar! It retails for $449 so this is a huge giveaway!

Jackson's Birthday


My sweet little Jackson is three years old today! I can hardly believe this little boy is growing up! He has changed so much in the last year. Jackson is a stinker, a love muffin, gentle and crabby. I love how he wants me all the time (even when it seems like I don't). He always is so affectionate. He is the most giving little boy I have ever known. Whenever his brother wants what he has he freely gives it to him because he has such big heart. The other day I took him to pick out the frosting for his birthday cupcakes and he put his arms around my neck and squeezed so tightly and said "I love you mommy."


He is such a bruiser! He never wants to wash his hands after pulling apart worms in the backyard. He is so passionate and lately when I put him in his room when he has thrown a fit he screams "I don't like you mommy!" I can't help but laugh! He is very honest and tells you how he sees it. Always asking questions. I can't imagine my life without my Jackson. He keeps me on my toes always trying to challenge my authority but I love every minute of it.


Jackson- I hope all of your dreams come true and that you have the confidence to be whatever and whoever you want to be. You have an amazing spirit and I'll love you forever and always.

Proactiv Skincare Review and 3 Sets to Giveaway!


I'm sure you have seen the infomercials for Proactiv Solution. The ones with all of the amazing results and celebrity testimonies.... we'll I finally tried it! And I am so glad I did. I truly have noticed a huge change in my skin since I started Proactiv.


First of all I received the three step system and the Refining Mask and can't believe that's all I need to clear skin. I first use the Renewing Cleanser, followed by the Revitalizing Toner, and lastly the Repairing Lotion. I do this first thing in the morning and before bed at night. That's it! I really noticed results after three days, and now that it has been a week I can say that I have seen a significant change. The Renewing Cleanser is my favorite because it feels like I am almost exfoliating my skin as I wash it. I feel like I am getting all the bad stuff off of my face. The toner feels so nice and cooling, while the lotion is a great final step that I can wear under makeup and doesn't leave my skin dried out.


I also use the mask every once in a while to get a deeper cleanse. The mask can also be used as a spot treatment on pimples over night. Proactiv Solution was created by Dr. Rodan and Dr. Fields. The products contain safe medicines that kill the bacteria at the source. Proactiv Solution has very generously offered to give three winners a set of the three step system! So if you have seen the commercials and wondered if it works- now is your chance to try it for yourself!


To enter please visit Proactiv and tell me why you would want to try Proactiv.

Layers Review and Giveaway!


This is my second time doing a review for Layers Clothing. I just love them! Their clothing is so modest and comfortable. Each piece is way modern and is perfect for anyone who is worried about showing a little skin!

Layers Clothing graciously sent me the Maisie swimsuit as pictured above. Isn't so cute? I always have a hard time finding a swimsuit that I like. The ones in the stores are usually not the right fit or to revealing for me ( I'm pretty picky). I can't wait for it to get a little warmer so I can wear it.

Aravon Shoes Review

Here in North Dakota it is finally getting warm enough to wear sandals! So I am really happy that I am able to wear my Aravon shoes. Aravon is a shoe company from New Balance. Aravon shoes are not just pretty but are of great quality. The Piper style that I received have a lot of great features. They include a Stridarc heeled rocker sole, Abzorb cushioning in the forefront, Primalux comfort cushion topcover, soft-seam lining to avoid irritation, and most importantly Ionact antibacterial protection which helps keep feet healthy.

Now as much as I love me cheapo Target sandals, they can't compare to the Aravon shoes. The comfort level is amazing. When I walk with my shoes on I feel lifted up and supported. I really love how I can wear them with a pair of jeans or with a skirt.

Here is a little info from the site : Every Aravon outsole unit offers subtle support that adds a bit of spring to your step. It also supports all other technologies built into Aravon shoes.In Aravon shoes, the foot fits and sits properly on the outsole for best support throughout the dynamics of the gait cycle. In motion, Aravon technologies steady the foot, helping to keep it on the ideal neutral plane of the gait and to alleviate thousands of compensations the complex structure makes with each step.The arch is gently fortified as it flexes and every step is cushioned in the heeland forefoot. Over the course of a day, this finely tuned support adds up to feet that are less stressed and less tired.

The Aravon shoes I think are great for the office or if you are running errands all day. I recently wore them to a long trip to Walmart and a few other places and I definitely noticed my feet didn't hurt like they usually do.
To see all the other great styles and collections from Aravon shoes visit their site here.

Jollys Garden Shoes and Clogs Review and Giveaway!



While I am not doing a garden this year because we are moving ( I am so sad by the way, I love gardening) I have been spending a lot more time outside now that the weather is nicer. Since I have two little guys that love to play in the dirt, mud and sandbox, and love using water while they play, my shoes get pretty dirty by the time we are ready to go inside.
When I received my Jollys Garden Clogs, I was so excited. They are perfect for wearing outside and I don't have to worry about getting them dirty since the dirt washes right off. Here is the cool part- you can take the sole out of the clog so that you can wash it. I just hose mine down before I come inside. So convenient!
Jollys Garden Shoes and Clogs have a great assortment of colors and styles for men, women and children. They even have a new style with pictures on them! The really cool part is that they offer free shipping!
If you would like to win a pair of your choice then visit their site and leave me a comment telling me which you would choose.

Envision Beauty The Solution Review

I have to say this product really has blown my mind! I absolutely worship the ground it walks on! I'm being a little dramatic but I really enjoy using it and have noticed the results. It is The Solution by Envision Beauty. I have seen on other sites nothing but the best reviews for this product.

Here is what Envision Beauty has to say: "At Envision Beauty we combine maximum simplicity with unparalleled quality. The Solution combines the most effective ingredients from Nature + Science in one powerfully concentrated formula. Compare that to typical skincare lines, which spread active ingredients across several products. Even better, The Solution is free of parabens, ethyl alcohol and many harsh synthetics that pervade most skincare products, making it ideal for even sensitive skin!The Solution’s luxurious all-in-one formula is loaded with the most effective ingredients found in Nature and Science. It powerfully nourishes, brightens and evens out the skin- repairing and preventing the signs of aging. Applied twice daily in place of a day cream, night cream, eye cream, moisturizer, anti-aging serum and pre-makeup base, The Solution rapidly produces drastic, visible results. Throw out your entire shelf of expensive, filler-laden beauty creams and serums! The Solution is all you need to Restore, Protect, and Perfect your skin."

I really have noticed an overall firmness in my skin and love the way it feels. I especially use this at night since I am a stomach sleeper. I hate the idea of my poor face being smooshed and wrinkled into my pillow but this makes me sleep easier. I also like that it doesn't leave my skin feeling oily or greasy like many moisturizers do. If you would like more info on The Solution please visit http://www.envision-beauty.com/flash/index.htm.

Nimli.com Review

Isn't this shawl so pretty? It is from a great online store called Nimli.com. Here is a little info from their site:
"Nimli is an online marketplace devoted to providing natural, organic, and sustainable lifestyle products while embracing style and aesthetic. Nimli offers clothing, accessories, home d├ęcor, beauty products and much more from independent designers who combine their effortless creativity with our environmentally conscious ethics. We offer an array of ecologically friendly products that are natural, organic, recycled, sweatshop-free, and cruelty-free.

I really love companies like this that have a purpose behind their products. I also really love my Azuri Cashmere Pashmina Shawl. The color is so vibrant and the material is incredibly soft. Did I mention that they have 110 colors to choose from? It can be worn as a wrap or scarf and is perfect for any event.


Nimli.com doesn't just have shawls though. They have a HUGE assortment of products for men, women and kids. I am totally in love with these Melissa Shoes. I hear them calling my name....

To see everything that they carry please visit their site here. There is something for everyone here!

I'm Moving!

We found out after trying for over a year that we are finally moving to Glendive which is a little bit bigger than the town we are in now. Glendive actually has an Albertson's! WoW! We are moving into a house that the missionaries of our church were staying in. It is much smaller than we are used to so I spent the whole weekend going through things trying to downsize and had a mini yard sale (no one really came :( ) So as of June 1st we will be moved in. Cody and I were beginning to think that we just weren't supposed to move but I think it was just a matter of when.

So I will be trying to post the remainder of my reviews and giveaways before we are in our other house so I can concentrate on unpacking. To all of my blogging buddies- I'm not ignoring you just trying to figure which way is up!

Ecotools Review


I'm not a huge makeup girl but ever since I got these bad boys I have been putting makeup on almost every day! They are called EcoTools and can be found at parispresents.com. These fabulous makeup brushes are made with bamboo handles and synthetic taklon bristles which are cruelty free, as well as recycled aluminum cans. How eco-friendly is that? The brush that I love the most is the foundation brush. It is so soft and really helps me as I put on my mineral makeup.
Now when I think eco-friendly or "green" I think expensive but these makeup brushes are very affordable. A five piece set is only $11.99 at Walgreens and can be found at several other stores. For store locations and more info please visit Ecotools here.

Proactive Parenting Guest Article from Sharon Silver

Here is another great article from Sharon Silver at Proactive Parenting. I really need to use these tips as I have recently had several power struggles with my boys! Enjoy!
Not Appropriate, Not Acceptable: Do these words really work?

A 3 yr old hits a friend and mom says, “that’s not appropriate, it’s unacceptable to hit a friend, go say sorry.” Everyone says it—but are those the best words to use when a child is emotional? Does it teach a child how to resolve the situation next time? It does tell him that mom and dad are upset, but so does your tone of voice and the look on your face. I think parents want more from corrections. I think parents want the words they use words to stop behavior and tell a child what they should do instead.

• Why isn’t saying, “that’s not appropriate or not acceptable” enough to stop behavior?
When a child is emotional or being corrected for misbehavior those words are over their heads.
I did an experiment a while ago with 20 kids ages 2-6. I asked them “what does ‘not appropriate’ mean?” All but one of them said, “I don’t know.” One child said, “Oh, that’s what mom says when she gets mad.”
Would you ever say, “that’s not fitting for this particular purpose” or “that’s not adequate to satisfy a need, a requirement or a standard in this situation” to a young child? Of course not, it’s way over their heads. Well, that’s the definition of appropriate and acceptable.

• Toddlers/preschoolers are having first time experiences and require repetition and teaching to learn.
Young children are experiencing situations for the first, second or third time—ever. They need to be told about their behavior repeatedly without anger; they need to be taught. A common problem arises when parents assume that since their toddler/preschooler is walking, talking and possibly potty trained they have full understanding of how life works and full comprehension of the English language—they don’t, they need calm parents to show them what to do instead of what they did.

• Teaching a child how to “stop it” without using those words.
Parents need to send information at the toddler or preschool level so a child can learn how to stop it.
What’s the difference between adult–size words and toddler/preschool size words? When a child’s emotional because they can’t have what they want or they’re being corrected due to misbehavior toddler/preschool size words are brief statements filled with instruction, not full sentences. The statements include what a child should be doing instead of what they’ve done.

• Real Life example.
You’re at the mall and your child runs off to see a big fountain. You begin warning by saying, “Not acceptable to go near the fountain.” Or, “Not appropriate to run away from me, stay away from the fountain or we have to leave”, yet your child bolts towards the fountain anyway!

Since your child is determined to see the water and isn’t listening, use toddler/preschool size words to show him how to look at the fountain the way you want him too. Try saying, “look with eyes, feet on ground, hands in pockets”. Repeat those words several times so he can understand.

• What if he doesn’t listen the first few times?
Have him take a seat with you a few feet away from the fountain and wait for 3-10 seconds. Then return to the fountain and repeat the words again, “look with eyes, feet on ground, hands in pockets.” If he tests you again repeat the process again. Don’t give up it may take 3-10 times for him to get it. This is your chance to show him how you want him to do things and if you give up he will see he doesn’t need to listen to this new way of teaching. Teaching this way shows him you’re serious, and gives him several chances to learn. You’ve just switched from adult words that don’t teach to preschool size words that do.

Sharon Silver is the founder and director of ProActive Parenting, http://www.proactiveparenting.net/ a site offering downloadable seminars to help parents lovingly teach and correct behavior as they deal with everyday toddler and preschooler behavior.

Eebee's Adventures DVD'S Giveaway!


While many mothers might shake their heads in shame at me, I let my boys watch tv. They call them shows. I really need that break in the day and despite what my recent psychology class suggested, I believe that educational programing rocks! I am a firm believer that if you are sitting with your child while watching a show and talk about what they are watching, that there can be great benefits.

Which is why I am in love with Eebee 's Adventures. Eebe 's Adventures are educational dvd's that are great for babies. Eebe's Adventures is different from other educational baby shows that display images on the screen. Each dvd begins by asking questions like "How do I..., What happens when.., and What if it...?" Eebe's Adventures uses active play to encourage the baby and toddler to learn. They even show parents interacting with their child and show different ways to explore their environment. Their site says "Every baby learns by doing."

Even though my boys are almost 3 and 4, they loved these dvd's. My husband and I were at our wits end while I was studying for finals one afternoon. I needed to study and he needed sanity from the boys constant whining. I popped in one of Eebee's Adventures and they instantly became quiet. It was wonderful!

I got to try out three Eebee's Adventures dvd's and you have a chance to win the same three! How sweet! These make great gifts for your baby, grandchild, or as a baby shower present.

If you would like the chance to win please go to eebee.com and let me know another product of Eebee's Adventures that you would like- not including the prize above. Please leave your email address. By the way, there is a great video to watch so you can see Eebee in action!

bump Review



I keep telling my husband that the next time I get pregnant I have to have some really cute maternity clothes. I really like wearing maternity clothes that have sayings on them. I was so excited when I found bump which stands for "baby under manufacturing process".

Isn't that cute? bump was started by Renae Plant , here is how she came up with bump-"Renae was incredibly excited about her [bump], but like most moms-to-be, she was concerned that most people just thought she was letting herself go. She wanted to scream, "I'm not fat--[bump] on board!"Disappointed to find that nothing catered to the first four to five months of pregnancy before the [bump] finally "pops," Renae decided to create and wear her own maternity designs on her growing belly that reflected her sense of style and humor. That's when [bump] was born!Renae's [bump] designs quickly garnered such an amazing response from friends and strangers alike that she realized she was onto something good. Pregnant again within a year of her first child's birth, Renae refined and expanded her [bump] line and for the next several months, the world at large became her focus group.Currently, Renae juggles two young children, her husband and soul mate, her talent management company and [bump]. Oh, and she and her husband are expecting [bump]3!"


I recieved a bump tee in brown and LOVE it! bump apparel makes any pregnant momma show off her hottness and pregnancy glow! I can't wait until I can wear my bump shirt one of these days! What I love about bump is the quality of the shirt. The material is so soft and sturdy. There are several types of bump clothing including yoga pants and dresses! I really want this dress:
