~~Life As I Know It~~

Life pretty much sucks lately for everyone around me~ or anyone living in this crappy assed economy. BUT, I have decided that you can be a giant bag of toxicity or you can be a happy, good person who spreads joy.
I have decided to spread joy and am going to stop pouting about things I can do nothing to change and start writing again (I know, y'all can't wait).
Seriously though, stay tuned and check back. Don't give up on me. I have some giveaways to do, some funny stories that I am in the process of writing about and my happy face is back on.
Welcome back Blog World!!!

~~He should have been awarded not charged!~~

What is wrong with courts lately?? Seems like anybody can murder someone and get away with it, but punch just one child molester and into prison you go.

Pet Cakes Review & Giveaway

Super Duper Christmas Ideas!!!!


PetCakes Series 1 is made up of these sweet puppies:

Randy Candy™ is a lovable mutt, scampering around playfully and taking long naps in his cupcake wrapper. Randy Candy is topped with tasty frosting and a cherry.

Blueberry Buddy™ is a Shar Pei who acts tough for his size but is a loving push over who’s as sweet as the blueberry frosting on his head. When sleepy, Blueberry Buddy cozies up in his own cupcake wrapper.

Twinkle Sprinkles™ is a playful, loving, and mischievous Beagle, whose colorful pink sprinkled frosting top looks good enough to eat! Twinkle Sprinkles likes to yelp when happy and sleep in her cupcake wrapper where her nose stays nice and toasty.

Coco-Coconut™ is a fluffy poodle with a loving side that is as sweet as a frosted cupcake. Cuddle Coco-Coconut and keep her cozy in her cupcake wrapper.WellMade Toy Manufacturing Company has generously offered one reader 2 PetCakes of the company's choosing.

My girls have not let them out of their sight since the package arrived in the mail. They even hide them in their backpacks and take them to school. I have had a call from the teacher asking not to let them come because they take over the classroom and a dozen calls from moms asking me where to get them because all the kids are wanting them.


Here is a sneak peek at some of the next series and they are just as dang cute!!

~Hedgehogs n Hairbows Review/Giveaway~~

Super Duper Christmas Ideas!!!!

I love doing my girls hair. Braids, pony tails, barrettes and clippies. I have a HUGE box full of things that will keep their hair done for years (or about 2 days when Libby get ahold of it). Every. Single. Time. I go in a store, I buy more~ it is like an addiction. So when I saw these cute as heck bows I knew I had found a place I could love shopping~ especially with a new granddaughter coming this month!! Hedgehogs 'n' Hairbows is the name of the website with, in my opinion, the absolutely cutest bows, headbands and hair ribbons. So when I found them I did what all red blooded American bloggers do, I contacted them about a review and giveaway.

Kisten is the mastermind and artist behind these wonderful pieces. Take a look at some of my very favorites.



I know, I always have way to many favorites to show you~ but that is me~ a mind never made up. Although I am serious when I tell you I could go (Hedge)Hog wild in this place!! (I know I am corny, but hey, that is what makes me me!)

I chose these for my new granddaughter~ what do you think?

My choices are called the "Candy Dots Dixie" headband and the "Fairy Loopy" Loopy Bow.

When they came I was pleasantly surprised at the quality number 1, and then the size of the Loopy Bow. It is huge!! So perfect for the tiny head of curls it will be going on! As my daughter puts it "The bigger the better and this is great!!" I am telling you now that you would be hard pressed to find something this well made and so easy to afford anywhere else~~trust me I have looked.



With the super curly hair that my daughter's kids have these will look so cute!
I put them on my grandson to see what they will look like on his sister, but was told I would face a fate worse than death should I post a picture on the net with my grandson in a hair bow~ so you will have to imagine for yourself~ Thanks for not killing me Max & Jacki!


Take these pictures (courtesy of Bing.com & Natures Parlour) and put those beautiful bows on that curly hair.



See I told you~~ BEAUTIFUL!!!
So go on over and check out Kisten's products and see what you think. I know you will find something you love to and it is all so very affordable!!

Then come back here and enter and you too can be the owner of some super cute (free) Hedgehogs n Hairbows products.

Kisten has generously offered one of my readers their choice of 1 headband and 1 bow. As always, here is how you enter. Have fun!!

~PopATot Review & Giveaway~

Super Duper Christmas Ideas!!!!


Somebody grab the baby!!!

Ever been at the park, the lake, the beach, a family reunion, camping, or just in the yard or in the house and heard those words?

I have, and I am, usually the one yelling them. My kids were, and now my grandchildren are, total escape artists. Put them in a play pen and they climb up the side and out they go. No matter what I am doing it seems I am always chasing a kid or two.

But that all ended the other day when I got a PopATot in the mail. When given the choice I actually picked pink because the new baby coming will be a girl and I thought I would get more use out of it, but I put Zeke in it to try it out, thinking that since he is almost 2 and a big 2 at that he would be out of it in a minute. And although he can scale a wall and get onto the trampoline by flying it seems (no matter what I move he still manages it somehow) he could not get out of the PopATot. I even left him there for several minutes after he asked to get out because I knew he would try harder if he really wanted out and he could not do it!! Then I gave him a magazine and he relaxed back and took some more relaxation time just laying back and being all chill.
Yes~~ finally some peace at our house from the little rug rat when I go to the bathroom~ no more fingers under the door, and most important, when the baby comes and we are spending the spring and summer outside at the exact time she will be starting to crawl and get into everything, I will have peace of mind for a few minutes when I walk around to see what the other little beasties are up to.

Now when I put Zeke in the PopATot I didn't attach any toys because I wasn't really planning on using it for more than a minute before he crawled out of it, but the awesome way it is set up or made, whichever way you prefer it, stopped him from being able to. He loved the feeling it gave him and said he was "rocking" or "walking" it is kind of hard to decide sometimes, but either way, he liked it and bounced around in it for a good 10 minutes before he realized he had no toys to play with. This being my point I didn't give him any and he did his best to climb out and not only was he staying put, he didn't come anywhere near tipping over or being able to move it around. How cool is that~ a stationary 2 year old!!

Sorry about the bad picture quality~~ I have a Nikon D90 on my Christmas wish list so we will see what Santa thinks about how much he likes me ;-)

The PopATot has several little attachments places to add your childs own favorite toys onto so they can't play the throw and fetch game with you every 2 minutes and it has 2 places for bottles, sippy's or snacks. The bottom of the PopATot is fully covered canvas material so your baby wont get their feet all yucky in whatever surface you have set them on outside and makes a great crumb catcher for inside use and the whole thing can just be squirted off because it is completely washable. And one of the best features in my opinion, especially if you are taking it anywhere besides home to use, it folds up to the size of a fold up chair and fits in a little carrying bag. No more having to shove in a huge play pen or exerciser. Perfect for vacations, grandma's house, or an outside baby seat any place.
I cannot even imagine how nice it will be come springtime when we are painting and doing spring cleaning and we have a comfy place for the baby to hang out. It even looks like she can get in a comfy position if she falls alseep instead of doing the jello neck- head bob thing. I'm excited to have spring come so we can find out all the uses we can for it.
I am also thinking of giving several women I know who are pregnant one for their baby shower, it will make a perfect gift for Christmas too and I am quite sure it isn't something they would want to return. They also have very fast and free shipping to the lower 48 states.
Go on over to PopATot and take a look to see which one you like best and you can buy one there.
The ONLY bad thing I can even think of (if you can even call it bad) is that it would be great to have a few more color choices, but I am sure that will come as the company grows and as it is there is something for boys and girls already so it isn't really a negative, just a personal preference.
Or you can win one here by following the entry options below. Good luck everyone!!

First off, and mandatory, go visit PopATot, then come back here and tell me which one that you would want if you win.
