I left a nice long comment on the photo frame giveaway that I ran into, which I believe qualifies me also for an entry in this contest.

Thank you again for all of the hard work you must have to do to create such a beautiful blog. I am very new to the whole blogging thing, but am finding people to be very nice, and mostly things are easy to figure out. I have started my own modest blog, will find a direction for it to go soon.

Congratulations Franstuff!!

My Very First Giveaway!

I've been trying to find the time to post this giveaway but it seems as if there aint' enough hours in a day to complete everything on my to do list. Now that my son is on Thanksgiving vacation, I can kick back on this cold Monday afternoon and post. So, I let my mom know about the giveaways and the reviewing and the moms and the dads and Twitter and the stories and all the greatness that comes in blogging. After I explained everything in detail and answered all her rhetorical questions, she gave me something that she purchased earlier this week and asked me to use this item as my very first giveaway. She's absolutely lovely.So, here we got a BRAND NEW 100% Cotton White long sleeve top W/peeking shoulders and slim ruffled hem in XL by Newport News-Women's Clothing.

(Sorry about the bad lighting and the generic pictures, I couldn't find any advertising of the top on their website anymore.) :P

The Snow Queen is an enchanting fairy tale about a little girl's journey to find and save the boy she loves.

The storybook is written in chapters and suitable for children (especially little girls) ages 6 and up. It has some potentially scary parts so an adult might need to preview it first.

The boy in the striped pajamas.

Me and my mom agreed to read the book before going to watch the movie. I finished reading the book the same day I started.( 2 weeks ago) Right after I put it down my mom picked it up and started on it, she just finished reading it today! So now that she's finally done, we have our date set to watch the movie this Thursday at 2:55pm! I'm so excited I cant wait!!

It is one of the most moving and remarkable films about childhood I’ve ever seen. The setting of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas is as grim as it gets, but the perspective is a magical piece of cinema. Bruno is the eight-year-old son of a Nazi officer, and the curious eyes and ears of Mark Herman’s gripping story. When his father is promoted from a desk job in Berlin to commanding a death camp in the middle of nowhere, Bruno can’t fathom the sudden frosty tension between his parents, or why he is forbidden to visit the strange “farm” with the electric fences.

Be Apart of the Ellen Show!!

I absolutely love Ellen DeGeneres!
And I cant seem to get enough of her show. I don't watch too much TV since I'm pretty occupied throughout the day but when I do have time, I always watch the Ellen Show. Me and my Mom love her, she's hysterical and she's so funny and so alive that she makes me envy the audience because they're there and I'm not. LOL
As we all know this is the time of The Ellen DeGeneres 12 Days of Giveaways and as I watch her announce the items that her lucky audience members get to have, I cant help the fact that I tear up because I can just imagine how happy and excited they must be. So instead of feeling sorry for myself I logged on to the show's website and entered to win VIP tickets to one of Ellen's 12 Days of Giveaways show!

So, if you're a fan of Ellen like myself then go for your chance to witness those fantastic dance moves of hers! IN PERSON!! :)

Wrapping up November

So it's December, almost Christmas time, whether I want it to be or not. We officially have 23 days left until the best holiday of the year. I hate to admit the fact that I am not prepared for Christmas this year. By this time of the year I at least have an idea of what I want to buy my son and other members of my family. I have not purchased one item yet and I honestly don't know when I'm going to get around to doing so. I'm usually full of holiday spirit but this year I'm just not feeling it, it's depressing.

So on a better note. The end result of November was better than I expected, I won 4 giveaways!
I started entering giveaways the beginning of November and didn't expect to be winning anything at all but I did & I'm pretty happy about it. :)

As soon as I receive all of the products that I have won, I will post my own personal review on them and I'll also post pictures of what I won.

Thank You to the following mama blogs for making my November complete!

Katie Lyons @ The Giveaway. Winnings: Lychee Line Wristlet
Maria @ Maria's space. Winnings: $25 GC to
Karen @ Frugal Mommy of 2 Girls. Winnings: 2 rolls of personalized wrapping paper from
Jamie @ Jaimie's Precious Peas. Winnings: Lucky Me Tee

Until next time, enjoy all of the giveaway listings that I have posted.

God Bless!

Myself Belts

Great for potty training kids & also for the kids that are tall and skinny like mine. Since my boy is pretty tall I have to buy him pants that are obviously too big at the waist. We NEED a belt that'll be easy for him to put on, take off, and strap up himself. I'm not around him 24/7 so something as easy as "Myself Belts" would be very convenient for the both of us.

I entered for my chance to win E's very own Myself Belt at S.I.M.P.L.E (reviews).

(fingers crossed) So, as I was reading the rules to enter the giveaway for the Glowology giftset, I read that there was a 3rd entry available if I blogged about "Anything I want about Busy Mom" so here it is. I of course have to list some of the great giveaways being held at Busy Mom...:)

Warning!! Please Read!

Warning..!!!! Warning..!!!! Warning..!!!!

Just last weekend on Friday night we parked in a public parking area. As we drove away I noticed a sticker on the rear window of the car. When I took it off after I got home, it was a receipt for gas. Luckily my friend told me not to stop as it could be someone waiting for me to get out of the car.

Then we received this email yesterday:




Heads up everyone! Please, keep this circulating... You walk across the parking lot, unlock your car and get inside. You start the engine and shift into Reverse.

When you look into the rearview mirror to back out of your parking space, you notice a pie ce of paper stuck to the middle of the rear window. So, you shift into Park, unlock your doors, and jump out of your car to remove that paper (or whatever it is) that is obstructing your view. When you reach the back of your car, that is when the car jackers appear out of nowhere, jump into your car and take off. They practically mow you down as they speed off in your car.

And guess what, ladies? I bet your purse is still in the car.

So now the car jacker has your car, your home address, your money, and your keys. Your home and your whole identity are now compromised!


If you see a piece of paper stuck to your back window, just drive away. Remove the paper later. And be thankful that you read this posting. I hope you will forward this to friends and family, especially to women. A purse contains all kinds of
personal information and identification documents, and you certainly do NOT want this to fall into the wrong hands.
Please keep this going and tell all your friends

Good luck to us all!!

I think I got it.

So far so good. After about 4 hours of working on my blog page, I think it's turning out to be O.K. It was easier than it seemed although I'm still having some difficulties. One thing that is just bugging the heck out of me is the the left sidebar!! I see other blog pages with 3 columns and I want 3 columns too!! Help Welcome! :)

So I've been thinking about creating a blog for quite sometime now and it finally happened. I couldn't seem to find the time to do so, but today was the perfect day since both my son and hubs were gone. I've had a few reasons to why I just had to do this.

First of all I want to host giveaways! Hosting seems like so much fun and I just love the feeling of giving. As of now, I havent had any donations or requests to review products and with that being, I've decided to go out and buy something myself and offer it as a giveaway! (come back for details!)

I also wanted to do this because me and my sister are going to start selling some awesome handmade things! We've put a lot of thought into this and she unfortunately is STILL thinking about it but I know that it'll be a hit and she wont regret it. So as soon as we have some available products, they'll also be up for giveaways and for sale at reasonable prices.

3rd: Who DOESN'T need a place to vent? Well, I do. I'd rather talk about certain issues that I've come to experience with other moms who may have also experienced something similar. Like..hmm...Your 5 year old boy asking "what are these?" while poking at your breast?..Yeah, that's another story! YIKES!!

I basically wanted to do this for the blogging, selling, giving & reviewing. I guess that would of been a simple way of putting it, too bad I'm not a simple gal.

Where do I begin?

So as you all can see, I am VERY new to blogging. I don't even know where to begin or what to do! LOL I don't have anyone that can walk me through this but I'll learn...somehow. It might take me a few days to get get my page officially up and running.

Geesh, here I am thinking that I'd have this done immediately!
