I won some MORE toothsoap!! LOVE IT!!
More to come on Toothsoap in a moment.

My internet has been out so I've missed a lot of post...hoping I can catch up tomorrow.

My blackberry is acting up tonight... :( WHY!!

Have yall entered the SPA not? Click it and go!!!!

Did yall enter for Shell's book giveaway? I am so jealous cause I can't!! I have to put it on Netflix!

You never know you might get lucky and win both then you can read the book (that I hear is fantastic) while lounging in your robe and slippers that you put on after your relaxing bath with your loofahs and doodads.
(*a lil secret* If I get 60 entries I will have 2 spa gifts to give tell your friends so 2 people can win!)

NOW for my announcement about why I LOVE Karen at Toothsoap.

For everyone who wasn't at the Toothsoap twitter party Wednesday missed a great time and I won $100!!! Yes isn't that great! Supah ask what we were going to do with the $100 if we won and I said it would go toward Drex a good carseat. (Yall do know who Drex is right? If not go HERE.)
Well the next morning I had an email from paypal saying Toothsoap deposited a $150 into my account.....I thought OH NO! Someone messed up!
Then it said they left a note and the note said that after Karen heard what I was spending the money on she decided to give an extra $50 to go toward his carseat!
YALL! I was bawling...I don't use that word often but there's no other way to describe it.
Karen and Toothsoap  has been a huge blessing to me and they have no idea how big. I thank them all from the bottom of my heart and they can expect a pic of Drex in his carseat!
So now click the little Toothsoap ad up there at the top of my blog and go check them out!! Go buy some will not regret it!
I have the cinnamon and LOVE it! get off...I hear thunder.

Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce review and giveaway! 2 WINNERS!!

About Country Bob's:
In 1968 Country Bob perfected the sauce of his dreams. After years of giving the sauce to friends and family he began to sell it in 1977. The reaction was overwhelming just as it is today. Almost everyone who tries Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce becomes a lifelong user. And why not, it is the perfect complement to practically any meal set on your table.

It was actually October of 1982 when Country Bob, Inc. became the company, which remains today. Bob Edson,Terry Edson, Al Malekovic and Reed Malekovic formed a corporation with equal ownership. Since that time Country Bob's distribution has magnified regionally in all directions from our corporate office located in Centralia, Illinois. Even with the tremendous growth we have not forgotten where we came from, continuing in our relentless pursuit of product excellence.

Along with our All Purpose Sauce we have expanded our product line to include BBQ Sauce, Seasoning Salt and Spicy All Purpose Sauce.With our fully automated bottling line we also have the capability of producing Private Label products for stores or restaurants.
It would be nice if we could claim responsibility for the success of the company, however, credit must be given where credit is due. Proverbs 16:3 says, "Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed." We have placed true ownership of Country Bob, Inc. in the hands of God. "Christ is our CEO" and  He is an Awesome Boss!

My Family's thoughts-

We were lucky enough to receive Country Bob's while my daughter was home on vacation. The day I got Country Bob's all purpose sauce we grilled burgers. Some of us put it on the burger while others dipped not only burgers but chips in the sauce. 
A few days later we had steak and it was a huge hit with the steak. It reminds me of A1 sauce...only much better!
I'm waiting to try it on fries! I bet it would be delicious on them.

Not only did Country Bob's send me the All Purpose Sauce to review but I also have the opportunity to giveaway 2 bottles to my readers!
That's right! 2 winners!!

Daughters, Toothsoap and Purses!

Kelly left last night around 6pm. I barely slept waiting on the phone calls letting me know she was ok and some pervert hadn't ran her off the road and taken her away. She got home at 4:30ish her time...she really has to start leaving earlier. I hate her driving by herself. That's a long 600 miles and when your with someone and it seems much longer alone.
I totally enjoyed her visit. I loved loved loved watching her with Nikki,she is going to make a great aunt....already is!
Friday we ran into Goodwill,I was looking for a cheap skirt to cover my BIG butt. (exercise started TODAY!) ANYWAY....I was on one side and the girls were on the other and I could hear them laughing....that the greatest sound ever! Hearing your kids laugh...out loud....hard...never ever ever gets old.
If you didn't see the pic in the last post with Kelly lying on Nikkis stomach trying to hear Drex go look... I'll wait here while you go look........TOO CUTE!
I went to take a few pics and noticed they had hi-jacked my camera. I love surprises like that.

On a different note I won 2 giveaways!! I feel so lucky right now...maybe I should go buy a lottery ticket!
The first was some Toothsoap from Hair Bows and Guitar Picks. I recently became an affiliate of Toothsoap and now I get free toothsoap!! I love when things work out like that. Make sure and visit both places. They are great sites and if you purchase toothsoap click my link to do it!! (It's at the top of my blog)

The second giveaway win was from The Purse Blogger!!!! YES!! I won a purse...I love purses!!! I also won a cute flower! Click the link and say hello to Laura,she is a sweetie!


I'm out...

Lovely Memory Picture.

Last night Nikki hung out with us while Kelly was in town and Britt snapped this pic with his camera. They didn't know he was taking it and I love how Kelly is trying so hard to hear Drex make some kind of sound. Kelly is going to be such a great aunt.

Now I'll go back to enjoying my kids....Kel leaves tomorrow. :(

BookSneeze book review: I Wish You Enough by Bob Perks

I Wish You Enough: Embracing Life's Most Valuable Moments...One Wish at a Time

I wish you enough sun
to keep your attitude bright
I wish you enough rain
to appreciate the sun more
I wish you enough happiness
to keep your spirit alive
I wish you enough pain
so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger
I wish you enough gain
to satisfy your wanting
I wish you enough loss
to appreciate all that you possess
I wish you enough "Hellos"
to get you through the final "Good-bye."

I Wish You Enough was an inspiring,encouraging short read.
This would be a great gift book for anyone that's going through a tough time, graduating, getting married or anything!
 With every wish you get a short story and a scripture.
I highly recommend this book.

What Easter means to me.

When I think of Easter the one thing that always comes to mind is when I was little and all of us (cousins) would be at memaws and pepaws for food and egg hunting. Easter was a big deal to us back then and it's sad that as we got older we got away from that. Memaw and pepaw are gone now and what I would give to have one more Easter as a child with them.

I also remember going to the park with the church and hunting eggs. I had so much fun doing that! One Easter I was 5 yrs old and in the hospital getting my tonsils and adnoids out. The preacher came up and promised me he would save me a chick and he didn't....I never ever forgot that.

We always got new clothes for Easter. My kids always got new clothes too but where I got a new dress and shoes they ended up getting short sets after they were older. When they were babies they got dresses.

I think back now and can honestly say I don't remember the last time I dyed eggs. That's sad....
Drex will be here next year for Easter and we are going to dye eggs!

Thats Kelly on the right. She was around 3 or 4 and we lived in Reno. It was sad in Reno on Easter, I missed my family so bad...I remember crying that day.

Nikki is on the right. This was her first Easter. She was almost 1. She had so many frills on that day. That dress had a bonnet with it but she wouldn't keep it on. Her great-grandma Nan bought it for her and I still have it. The dress will be 28 years old tomorrow.

In all the memories of Easter I hope we don't forget the real reason for it. It's all about the resurrection
 and what He did for us.

God’s love was the way
To the old wooden cross
When we had no hope
And were eternally lost
He offered unto us
A new life in Him
Through His fateful death
And His resurrection
