I hope these bring a little smile, giggle and laugh on this MONDAY Morning!
I hope you all have a fabulous week!

I'll Never Question My Weight Again...Thanks To The Weight Watchers® by Conair™ Glass Body Analysis Scale! You Can #WIN A New Scale Too!

I truly don't struggle to much with weight issues (thank my lucky stars for that)...however, I am getting to be middle age (my kids tell me I am old), which means that what I eat can now easily effect my body...because my metabolism is changing.  We haven't ever had a nice "SCALE" in the house to weigh ourselves...but it's honestly been a little closet "WANT" for me.  It would just be nice to "KNOW" some days, right?

I was elated to find out that Conair not only offers a scale that will give me an accurate readout on my weight (whenever I chose to see it), but it also can offer a measurement of body fat, body water, bone mass, and BMI.  Pretty awesome, right?  It's called "Weight Watchers® by Conair™ Glass Body Analysis Scale Model WW52".
Photobucket
Photobucket
Another feature I like is that we can set up "USERS" (it stores four), so it stores all my body information (age, height, etc.) to take into account when it does my body analysis.  It has a weight capacity of 400lbs and comes with batteries, so you can use it right away!

I also love that it's available at Target (my favorite store) and online in the Conair store for $49.99.
Photobucket
Do you own a scale?  Do you need a new one?  I get to offer (1) Lucky Reader their chance to win a Weight Watchers® by Conair™ Digital Painted Glass Scale Model WW24.  Just like the one pictured above!

Isn't It Funny How "BOYS + FOOTBALL = LOVE!" ??

We got our son's Pop Warner Football Gear today at the field and when we got home...the boy's couldn't wait to try on the new gear.  My oldest son couldn't wait to help his little brother get all padded up and put the helmet on...and if you can't tell from the pictures...my little guy didn't mind them at all.  He's been ready to play football since he could walk.

My oldest son was even feeling the football spirit and decided he wanted a few cute pictures taken.  Of course, how could I say no?

Anyway, it just cracks me up how my kids can go through the rest of the year without thinking about or talking about it...but when FOOTBALL season arrives (practice starts Monday)...

it's all about the FOOTBALL!

AdoraPet Has Children's Books Coming This Fall? Your Kids Will Love These!!

Do your kids love puppies? Mine do! I don't think any of the four of them have ever seen a puppy that they didn't think was absolutely adorable. Not only that, but they want to "ADOPT" or bring home every one they see, as well. I can't blame them. I love puppies too.
Photobucket
Do you remember how we reviewed a DVD (in fact, my son made their cover) that was the cutest thing you've ever seen? CLICK HERE to see more about it and purchase a copy or yourself! It features adorable puppies just being "PUPPIES"...and my kids loved it! Especially my little guy! He ADORED it!
PhotobucketPhotobucket
They have just launched an adorable children's book line that I can't wait to share with you.
Photobucket
Not only will these books make your kids smile, but will also teach them about different types of occupations & facts too. Each book introduces the characters (Pico and Pima Puppy) & their adventure or story. HOW CUTE, right? They even have plush pet pals to go along with the books...so you child can hold their AdoraPet buddy (dressed up in their adventure outfit) while they read the story.
Photobucket
They feature super cute illustrations, the books are small in size (which is perfect for taking them with you when you are "ON THE GO"), they offer rhythmic and rhyming text that is fun to read outloud and I have a feeling your kids are going to ADORE these AdoraPet characters & stories too.

CLICK HERE to learn more about the characters (Pico and Pima Puppy) and their stories!
Photobucket
The books will be available this FALL & are only $5.95 each (hardcovered and full of color) & the sets start at $20 (includes the story book & plush character).

It's That Time Of Year Again...Are You Ready For Some POP WARNER Football?

I can't believe it! 
It's that time of year again...
Photobucket
Tomorrow is uniform pick up day for our son! This year he's starting his football season as a Jr. PeeWee player. He's excited and anxious to get back into the swing of things again.
Photobucket
Our daughter is doing her first year of Pop Warner Cheer this year too. She's so excited! We watched & cheered on the cheerleaders last year and she's so excited she gets to be a part of all the fun "FOR REAL" this year.

So, wish me luck. Having kids in this very INVOLVED program, means that I am devoting at least 2 hours of our "family" time a night to being at the school, as they condition, practice and prepare for their 2011 football/cheer season. It will be awesome...it always is, but it's a sacrifice too!

Looking forward to a fun fall of FOOTBALL & CHEER.

I Wish I Had "BABY GIRAFFE" When I Was A New Mommy! Come See Why...

There are times, as a new mommy (take my word for it...I've been there a few times)...that one would wish she had about four more arms than she actually has.  With everything a new baby "NEEDS" and even just carrying the baby and carrier...sometimes having an extra hand or arm would be extremely handy.  That's why I love finding products that make the task of being a mommy easier, and help keep the baby equally happy as well.
Photobucket
Photobucket
Photobucket
This product, the "Baby Giraffe" is awesome!  It not only allows your child the ability to be entertained by their favorite toys (when they are newborn), hanging above their head by this adorable plush (and super soft) giraffe designed "arm"...
Photobucket
but it also allows you to attach a bottle, which is perfect for those dire moments in the car, when your baby is starving, but you just can't pull over to stop and feed.  I am sure, if you have kids, you know what I'm talking about.  We've all had them at one time! There is nothing more frustrating for a mommy than hearing her baby cry and not being able to stop to soothe them.
Photobucket
It also has an attachable mirror accessory, so you can watch your baby in the car, as they see the world passing by.

Plus, it's flexible, so you can bend it anyway you need it...and can attach to just about anything you have for your baby (the infant carrier, car seat, crib, high chair, etc.)! 
AWESOME, right?

I love this Baby Giraffe product and think it would make an awesome "baby shower" idea for an expecting mommy.  It will also be something that every mommy will be requesting one of, as the realize just how much is involved with a new baby...and how sometimes an extra hand (or arm like contraption) is very handy!
