Beautiful Blog Designs Contest Win!

Hi All!!

I am so excited and I just had to pop in and tell you about the changes coming up. I entered a contest on Beautiful Blog Designs and I just now received an email saying I was chosen as the lucky winner!!

I won a custom blog design from Kim at 7M Designs that includes:

Custom header
Custom sidebar tabs (up to 5)

Needless to say I am ridiculously excited. I have been unhappy with my current blog design for a while but am (unfortunately for you guys) just not talented enough to do this myself :) Bring in the professionals!!

I can't wait!! I am bursting at the seams with excitement! New changes to come!! Thank you for your continued support!

A HUGE THANK YOU goes out to Beautiful Blog Designs and 7M Designs for this wonderful win and design to come!

Fairy wonderful is giving one away here :

Princesses and Pettiskirts

If you know me, you know I wanted a little girl. Life had a different plan. Instead life gave me a beautiful, wonderful, well behaved, humourous, loving , ridiculously awesome little boy. Life is funny like that . :)

So.. I didn't get my girl, Meh, I'll live. Yup, I'll live.. vicariously through my friends who had little girls. lol.

One of those little girls happens to be having a birthday in March. So I was totally stoked to stumble across this great giveaway in hopes of winning it for her gift! (Check out the red and white pettiskirt I have my eye on ). You can enter to win here:

Skin care and me

I am a firm believer in skin care products.  I never use to be, but then I aged :) and suddenly out of no where came this new found belief that we need to take care of our skin better.  OR that I need to take care of MY skin better.  The problem is finding the RIGHT skin care product. You can literally spend hundreds if not thousands of dollars on skincare products and still not find the right one.  Thats what has happened with me.  I have bought products, taken samples from counter girls, received samples through bzzagent.  I still can't find the right stuff.  Some clog my pores.  Some don't do what they say.  Uggh.. Its an excercise in frustration sometimes.

So, in my quest to find the right skin care product for me (if you are listening skin care makers around the world- I am a 30 something woman with very dry skin and large pores that clog easily who is not aging as gracefully as she wanted - HELP ME PLEASE !! )  I stumbled across a giveaway on Mythbuster Beauty from

Cozy Cuddly Slanket

I am generally cold all of the time. I try to keep the heat low in the house for economic reasons. I have the coldest room in the house for motherly reasons. For some reason the one bedroom in my house is 15 degrees colder than anywhere else. I chalk it up to poor insulation. I sleep there so the little one can have to warm room. I am ALWAYS cold.

Thats why it was heavenly to find this giveaway!!!

Enter to win a Slanket in your choice of colour here:

good luck!!

Valentines and Wine

I am single and Valentine's Day isn't always pleasant for us single people. Watching lovers coo and hold each other like they are the last people on earth is less than exhilerating when you are feeling alone on that holiday. I will be spending Valentine's with my son as always and he is the best company I could ask for. We will be baking and decorating ahd watching movies. Hopefully late night I will be enjoying some treats I am hoping to win from Emily's Latest. She is holding a Valentine's day giveaway sponsored by GLADE that you can find here :

And Yes!! There is wine included!! :)

Good Luck!

Give me a T-R-U

Give me a "T" !!

Give me an "R" !!

Give me a "U" !!

Whats that stand for??

TRU?? YUP. Or ... Toys R Us. Toys R Us around our house has been known as TRU for as long as I can remember. You will have to ignore my wannabe cheerleader excercise above (ummm.. can you say someone regrets not trying out for the Team in highschool?? LOL) apparently I didn't get enough sleep last night.

Rambling on... (and I do mean rambling - sorry all ) .. The reason I mention TRU is because I found a super fantastical wonderfullisciously good (did I mention I was tired?) giveaway for a $40 TRU gift card at this site:

Gracefully.. or not so...

Ok.. So I am not aging as gracefully as I had hoped.

Who knew that winter , kids, time , sun and the occasional (or more than occasional) glass of red wine would be so harsh on my face (and youth!)

Ok.. ok.. Someone might have told me somewhere along the lines (and the lines on my face are plenty now to prove this theory lol) that these things would affect me later in life.. but I was young.. and KNEW EVERYTHING..

Except that.. apparently!

Time to correct the damage done.

Thankfully I found a great giveaway for Dr. Perricone's Cold Plasma cream!

Good Luck!
