Prepare your lips for winter with Carmex Lip Conditioner

Carmex has come out with another great product - Carmex Lip Conditioner!

I am a huge fan of Carmex products, partially because they remind me of being a little girl and hanging out with my dad.  My dad had a tube or jar of carmex on hand at all times!  Although I still love the tube & jar of Carmex it is amazing how many new fun products the company has came up with and still maintained the same high quality.  The newest product being - Carmex Lip Conditioner! 

The Orange Flavor Carmex Lip Conditioner instantly makes your lips soft and I have started using this every morning with my make-up routine as it gives my lips that little glossy shine that I like!  I also absolutely love the citrus smell - this smells good enough to eat (but please don't!)  My daughter constantly licks her lips and they are always chapped but she refuses to wear any lip products!  I am so excited after making her smell this one she agreed to use it and has been sneaking into it quite a bit (so she thinks, but I leave it out just for her to sneak in to!)

I am in love with this new product and would love to see them introduce more flavors of this product!

Disclosure:  I am a member of the Carmex Blog Squad and was provided the above product in exchange for posting my honest opinion of the product.  All Opinions as always are 100% my own honest opinions.

Sorry I have been M.I.A....... it's been a long weekend!

So the long weekend always goes quick right?  Nope - this long 4 day weekend has truly been a LONG weekend.  It has seemed long and hectic.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and I got my Black Friday shopping done so all was well - until Friday evening.  My husband went to take my nephew home and someone turned right it front of him as he was going straight at 45 mph.  (Yes, she must have been up all night black friday shopping like me - because she literally turned right in front of him and by the time she noticed and tried to correct her turn, it was too late)!  My husband said she immediately hopped out of her car and apologized - and luckily my husband, son & nephew were alright - and the other driver & her child were both fine as well!  My husband has a few air bag burns on his face and they are all a little sore but everyone is alive and well so it has truly been a weekend of being THANKFUL!  We are truly blessed that everyone involved in the accident was fine!

However, my car is not so fine (not a big deal considering what could have been hurt or lost in the accident) - but still an inconvenience - so our weekend has been trying to get everything in order to figure out all the insurance stuff!  We will talk to the other drivers Insurance company tomorrow and hopefully everything goes smoothly and quickly because my husband is pretty sure my car will be considered a total loss.  Kind of sad because I absolutely LOVE my Saturn Aura, plus we just barely had the transmission rebuilt (luckily the manufacturer paid for most of that though).

So we may be quite busy between regular every day things like work and then running around doing things to get my vehicle fixed, or get paid for the loss, and get a new one!  So I may not be "here" as much as normal for a week or so!

Well, Saturday we also went & cut down our Christmas tree up by my friend's cabin and are ready to put that up tomorrow - so the weekend wasn't a total bust!  It was definitely a Thanksgiving weekend to Remember & be thankful for though!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend & if you went Black Friday Shopping hopefully you got all you were hoping to get!  Don't forget Cyber Monday is tomorrow so get ready for more great deals!

I really don't want to nag here.  Trust me - I have 3 children so I have to do it often enough at home that I really don't want there to be a need to nag here too!

However, more and more lately I have noticed invalid entries to giveaways - or entries where people forget the important information I need to verify their entry!!!


Disney on Ice Presents 100 Years of Magic Review

We recently were able to attend Disney on Ice Presents 100 Years of Magic It was such a fun experience.  I knew my daughter would like it, and wondered if my son would!  I was so happy that they both ended up loving it!  Plus, we got my sister in law and the girl cousins to come too and they all had a blast!  The whole family had so much fun at this show - it had something for everyone.  From all of the Princesses, to Mulan, Pinnochio, Mickey Mouse, and the Incredibles they had it all.  If you have been wondering if it is a show worth attending I can tell you it is!  Here are a few of the many pictures we got at the show.

We love camping - but not loving coming up with camping supplies gift ideas!

So with the holidays coming I am racking my brain trying to come up with some great ideas of things to get my husband.  One thing I know he always loves is supplies for camping - he would live in the mountains if we could afford for him not to work!  The problem is he already owns so many things that I have looked around on campbound site and I cannot decide what to get him - what would be great that he does not already own?  I would love any ideas!


So much more than a cordless phone - V-Tech LS6475-3 Review

Home phones have went out of style.  Everyone use to have a home phone but I am sure you could ask plenty of children if they had a phone at home that was not a cell phone and they might be clueless as to what you are talking about.  Most businesses still have landlines and there are still some households that do as well.  We are one of those households - partially due to the fact that if something were to happen I want to know I am not counting on just a cellular phone.  Whether it is an emergency, my cell phone gets lost, someone needs to call me from home if I step out, etc. I like the peace of mind of having a home phone as well.


Landscaping with water

If you are looking for some new landscaping ideas you may want to consider adding some water!  A neighbor we had growing up had a little creek she made in her back yard along with millions of beautiful flowers and I remember knocking on her door with other neighbor kids quite frequently asking to go look at her back yard.  It was beautiful.
I also remember going to my grandpa's quite a bit when I was younger but I honestly don't know if I ever knew his last name until I was in my early teens.  We always called him "Grandpa with the Fish Pond".  He had a fish pond in his yard and we all loved it!  He still has that fish pond to this day, and we all still love it!


Deals, Deals, and More Deals!

With the Holidays right around the corner there are some amazing deals right now!  Just another reason to love this time of year!

In fact I have told my husband going forward I am going to start saving money every month just to buy things we want or need next November because you can usually find almost anything you want at a discount during this time!


Tiny Love donations to Kids in Distressed Situations

Tiny Love USA is based in New Jersey and New York City.  They have seen first hand the devastation of Hurricane Sandy and they want to help!  They want to bring a little joy to the youngest hurricane victims so they are teaming up with KIDS - Kids in Distressed Situations.

Jump Break or Summaries not working in Blogger

I am sure most of you already know that you can easily put page breaks in blogger so that just the summary of your post will show on your main page with a link stating read more.

However, what do you do when you this does not work?  When you insert a page break but the Read more does not show up?  How do you fix Jump Break not showing read more?

I have searched for these answers for almost a year - I had even asked my blog designer if she knew what change to my design had caused this and if there was a way to fix it.  Nothing and no one could fix this though!  I feel silly that i have found the answer and it was SO simple to do!  I know there were others who had this same problem so hopefully this will help you.

A Guest Post My husband should read - Top 10 Flowers for Women

Here is an awesome guest post with some useful and fun information!  You may want to send this link to your husbands with a little "hint, hint" as the subject line!  

The Top 10 Flowers Girls Want To Get
A beautiful flower bouquet can be the ideal gift to give a woman for a number of different occasions. From Mother’s Day, to an anniversary, women love to receive gorgeous and fragrant flowers for any type of special event. With all of the varieties, colors, and types of flowering plants available, choosing the arrangement that will look best in your bouquet can be a complicated process. Many plants also have special meanings, which can make your gift much more significant to the woman receiving it. You can arrange them in a bouquet, or simply give an individual flower to deliver that personal message.

Nojo is one of the top names in crib bedding and the reason for that is because they believe in quality, comfort, and style.  We all know how important it is to make our little ones nursery look perfect.  We have patiently (and at times not so patiently) waited to meet our little one and anxiously prepared to bring them home.  Nojo creates beautiful and stylish bedding sets that are the quality mothers should demand for their little ones!  Plus the comfort and style you will love for your baby and they will last them from the day they come home all through their toddler years.

Rufflebutts Review

There is nothing more satisfying then getting your little girl all dressed up in something cute.  Problem is my husband is always complaining about some of her "precious" outfits and saying I should just let her be naked or in a simple one piece outfit so she is comfortable!  Luckily for both of us I found Rufflebutts!


I See Me Personalized Children's Books - Review & Giveaway

I See Me carries personalized children's gifts such as coloring books, placemats, puzzles, and books.  When I was offered to review one of their products I looked through them all and immediately knew which product I wanted to review!

As most of you know we recently had our third child.  My four year old was so excited to have a baby sister but as most parents know once the little one arrives and the baby requires so much attention - there tends to be a little jealousy.  My daughter has been great about not getting jealous.  Although, there have been a few times like when she has a nightmare and comes in our room and I am feeding the baby in bed and she says "The baby is in MY spot mom".  She has surprised me with how accepting she has been of the baby getting a lot of the attention now, but I think a lot of that may be due to the fact that we make her feel so important for being an amazing big sister!

Baby Clothes with Personality - Cafe Press Baby BodySuits - Review & Giveaway

Sometimes baby clothes seem so generic.  I love baby clothes, just ask my husband he is constantly complaining because no matter how many outfits my daughter has I am constantly buying more!  The problem is that a lot of them lack personality and are not very original.  It is hard to find baby items that every other baby on the block isn't wearing sometimes!

Cafe Press has adorable little baby bodysuits with lots of personality!  I love their products and have actually spent hours looking at all their cute stuff for babies!  Some of the body suits are hilarious.  They actually have one that says "I'm Proof that my Daddy does not shoot blanks" with a picture of a gun!  I couldn't help but laugh when I saw this since my daughter was born after a failed vasectomy!  It is fun to be able to find baby clothes like that - ones that fit your situation - your little ones personality - and are original!  My husband loved the "What? Were you sleeping?" baby bodysuit.

I almost had a nervous breakdown last week when I found out my car needed a new transmission (4 months after the 5 year warranty expired).  That on top of the fact it needs new tires.  I told the kids they were all getting tires and a transmission for Christmas - they didn't think I was funny.....  but I didn't think the situation was very funny either.
Fortunately for us the dealer contacted the manufacturer who is still going to cover it (minus a deductible of a couple hundred dollars) so the kids may get more than a tire for Christmas!  However, I know some may not be as lucky and things do pop up all year so to help one lucky winner out we are so excited to bring you a $500 Christmas Cash Giveaway!!!
Good luck to all of you & I hope someone who enters on Dirty Truth Reviews wins!!!!
