Bobble Bots Moshi Monsters Review and Giveaway

My girls have been watching the commercials for Bobble Bots and Moshi Monsters for the last few weeks and bugging me for the last few weeks to get them some.

I was so excited when the box showed up to review theses! Now who is the coolest Mom in the world!!



My girls had a blast playing with these, so much in fact it is first on their list to ask the Easter bunny this year. The sets can be built together to put your own city together and my girls are eager to expand on what they already built.



These are great because they are gender neutral, so if you have boys they will love these as well.

One of you will win a Bobble Bots Moshi Monsters starter set, which comes with one Moshling, one cobblestone building tile, four brick borders, three grass pieces, one small bush, one mushroom, one rock, and secret codes that unlock new content at www.moshimonsters.com.  Good luck!!


This giveaway is sponsored by Innovation First Labs, though the opinions are my own.

Pour Your Heart Out - Dear Anxiety

Congratulations Shell for having Pour Your Heart Out going for two years! Thank you for giving us all a place to say the things we can't.






Dear Anxiety, 

Your reared your ugly head into my life as a child, but I would never realize this until I became an adult. Growing up as the daughter of an alcoholic allowed you to sneak into my life. 

We didn't became acquainted until you came out a few years back in the form of panic attacks and depression. I can't say I was happy to meet you, but at least you waited until I was older to give me the best shot you had. 

I deal with you everyday. You are a full part of my life. I am ok with this. I am strong and I work every day towards getting you out of my life for good and learning how to cope with you. 

Just know, every day I get stronger and I am ready to fight you even harder. You can give me your best shot.....I'm ready for you.

Oh, How Pinteresting! #1

Unless you have been under a rock, you have heard of Pinterest. It has become one of the fastest growing Social Media outlets.


What is Pinterest you ask? 


Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.


Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests. To get started, request an invite.
Or send me your email and I can invite you as well. I think it takes longer to go through their site then through another person. 
When you join make sure to follow me! I am having a blast with it!

Pour Your Heart Out - Did I Do This To Her?



Depression/Anxiety Hurt.

They hurt the person it affects.

It hurts those around you.

It affects everyone.

I have been living this nightmare for a few years now. I have gone to several doctors, tried several medications, blamed my parents, blamed myself, blamed my high school boyfriend. It doesn't matter, I still have it. 

My second born was diagnosed with depression/anxiety about two years ago. It kills me to think I have done this to her. If I could just take all the pain and anxiety away from her I would. I know what kind of world she is living in, because I live there too. 

We take medication and hope it works. We get great highs about life and then sink so low we don't know if we will ever come out of it. That is the roller coaster we both call life. 

I pray that since she is so young she will have a chance to work through this before she gets older. I can't bare the fact that she might be like me and have to deal with this for the rest of her life. But, chances are she will. 

The guilt I feel, even though I know it is genetic. I feel so guilty.
