Potty Training Sucks!



I am getting so close to being diaper free I can' see the light at the end of the tunnel. Or can I?
I have successfully potty trained 3 daughters, you would think #4 would be a breeze. Not so much.

She just turned three and seems to be ready to go. She sits on the little potty when I go. She goes through the motions and even asks to wear underwear to be like her big sisters. She refuses to wear pull ups but she will wear diapers. She loves wearing underware. The  only problem with that is that she pees in it and doesn't care!

Underware has always been my last attempt to get the other three to go. Typically the child is mortified when they pee on themselves and the floor. Nope, not my girl! I am really at a loss right now. She is my exception to the rules. I have no idea where to go from here.

OMG The TXT Has Started




Considering we didn't have half the electronic things growing up that are children do these days, is it hard to figure out when to buy them and allow them to use them.

I bought a basic phone for my daughter when she was 10 for emergencies. She has her younger sister with her and I thought it would be a good idea to be able to get a hold of her.

Now that she is 11 we upgraded to a better phone and phone plan (thank God!). She can text now.  I think the first week she had it she was glued to it 24/7.  It has slowed since just because my husband and I have realized we need to make boundaries for her with it.

All I can say is the best purchase I have made in a long time is unlimited family texting. Otherwise I would probably have to take out a second mortgage just to keep up with my phone bill!!

Vaseline Intensive Care Rescue Review







There are many things I can't stand about Winter, but I have to say the worst part of it for me is having, dry, cracked skin. Every year, just before it starts getting really cold I can feel the moisture just being sucked out of my hands. I know Winter is  here.

Every year I am looking for that "perfect lotion" that will get me through the season. About a month ago I was given a bottle of Vaseline Intensive Rescue to try.

Vaseline has been hitting the road with the Dry Skin Patrol, a five-woman team who suffer from dry skin. Make sure to visiting Vaseline on Facebook to learn more.

Within  a week I felt a smooth difference on my hands. I also loved the fact that it isn't greasy. Busy Moms just don't have time to have greasy hands.

Vaseline really won me over with this new lotion. It is so important for me to keep moisturized during the winter and this product really did it for me.



Disclosure: I received a complimentary 10 fluid ounce bottle of Vaseline Intensive Rescue Fragrance-Free Repairing Moisture lotion to facilitate this review. All opinions expressed herein are specifically mine. I received no monetary compensation to write this post or endorse this product.

Wordless Wednesday-My First Necklace!!



I decided to try my hand at jewelery this week. I have always had such a love for Steam Punk jewelery. I think the craft store is calling it something "Chic" now. Anyway, I had so much fun with this. I may have finally found a new hobby!

Spring Break And Mid Life Crisis



Ahhhh.......It is Spring Break. Isn't this place just gorgeous? TOO BAD I AM NOT THERE!

Spring break is here at home like it is every year. It is supposed to rain and or snow all week so it should be quite a challenge to keep my four happy and keep me sane. Oh wait, already lost my sanity years ago!!

Since I knew this was going to be a long week I decided to have a mid life crisis this weekend and get my nose pierced. I have wanted to do it for so long! I finally got the courage and did it! I got a tattoo when I was 21 so that was already taken off my bucket list. It was time to do something for me. And I  LOVE it!!

Is there something you have always wanted to do but haven't??? Do it!!  Life is short. Enjoy every minute of it.

It Has Already Happened.....I Am Officially Stupid

When I was about 9 years old I wrote my Dad a note on a green piece of paper that we affectionately named "greenies". He would get packs of them at work and bring them home to write notes on them. I think they were probably the first "Post It" notes that came out without the sticky.

My note lovingly spelled my name out for my Father so he would know how to spell it when he was making me a label for school. As if he couldn't spell my name!! LOL It became a HUGE joke in my house for the rest of my life. I guess I felt he was stupid and I had to spell it for him.

Well, the tides have changed and 20 + years later my 11 year old now thinks I am stupid as well. I guess it is a write of passage. I woke up to this note this morning.




We discussed this before she went to bed. I guess I go stupid when I get some sleep. I especially love the part where she puts her name. As if I would forget ! :)

Nutella Party #Nutellaparty

 


I was so happy when I was chosen to throw a Nutella Party. My girls are some of the biggest Nutella fans you will ever meet. We must go through at least a jar a week around here. 


I recently received a party package through Mommy PartiesMomSelect and Nutella that included a large jar of Nutella, Nutella Travel Mugs, Nutella Spreaders, Samples, Coupons & More to host a Nutella Party to share with others.

We invited my daughter's friends and Moms over to try Nutella. There was only one Mom who had never had it before and she LOVED it, as did everyone else.  Everyone had a greet time and loved the fact that got to leave with a Nutella Gift Bag!








Disclosure: I received a Nutella Party Package through Mommy Parties,  MomSelect and Nutella & no other compensation was received. All opinions expressed are my own!

Not So Moody Monday




I thought I would join The Not So Moody Monday blog hop today.

The truth is I am very moody today and really pissed off.  I HATE TIME CHANGE! I almost couldn't get my girls up and out to school today. Not to mention I am even more tired than usual. I heard today that Arizona doesn't do time change. I am thinking I should consider moving there! LOL

Freschetta Party




House Party was kind enough to choose  me to be a host of the Freschetta " Fresch From The Silver Screen" pizza party. I was given a really cool party pack to have a party with my friends and family and let them know just how great this pizza is!





I have to admit I was a little skeptical since I am not a big frozen pizza fan. But, once I tried the Freschetta I was in love!!



My family and I tired many different types of pizza and so did my guests. I can say that there was no complaints on any one of the pizzas. They were all SO good. I would defiantly buy a frozen pizza over a carry out company now. I am very glad that I had that chance to try something so good. I don't think I would have ever even tried frozen.

Do yourself a favor. There are many different types as well as crusts. This pizza is really good. My kids love it and so do my husband and myself!!

This is really great frozen pizza. I am really impressed and really glad I had the opportunity to try it.
