Review and ***Giveaway***: 191 Unlimited Boys Fashion Button Up Shirt

[ Wednesday, January 13, 2010 | 11 Post-It Notes ]


This awesome long-sleeved Mausoleum Shirt by 191 Unlimited is super fashionable for today's youth. We received it and Gabriel plans on wearing it to his Valentine's Day party at school. I took some pictures of him "modeling" it, but of course my camera didn't want to co-operate that day. I can not say enough about the quality of this shirt. The embroidery is amazing!

The story of how 191 Unlimited was formed is intriguing. In 2002 with $191 and a dream. Long time best friends Parth Sharma and Girish Karnani took $191 to the casino and turned it into enough money to launch their first collection. The two college grads then loaded the samples into their car and went on a 2 month trek from NY to LA and back, stopping in as many cities as possible to show their line to specialty stores.

Now onto the GIVEAWAY!
Here is your chance to win a Mausoleum shirt for your little man in the sizing of your choosing!!

Do you have trouble sleeping?

| 1 Post-It Notes ]

Do you have trouble sleeping? I do. Not every night, but enough to where I went to a sleep center to see what was going on. There they check for sleep apnea and also measure how long it takes you to fall asleep, stay asleep, and how long your REM sleep is. The Good news was there was nothing physically wrong with me. I didn't have trouble staying asleep. I had trouble falling asleep. My mind just goes to fast. So I have your typical insomnia. I take Ambien CR as needed and it does help. As long as I stick to my sleep schedule then I'm all good.



For others that have deeper sleep problems like sleep apnea, RLS, or other sleep disorders check out Talk About Sleep's online Store. They have a great message board and sell CPAP Machines, Portable Oxygen Concentrators, CPAP Masks, and more. Just remember your not alone!

Another Sad Day.....

[ Tuesday, January 12, 2010 | 4 Post-It Notes ]


I was just informed that Karissa from Prissy Green took her own life. It is a truly sad day in the blogging world. She was a huge supporter of anything green and also loved her 2 Rescue Dogs who were her children. She was a beautiful light gone out. I won't be posting any more today in her memory and tomorrow Wordless Wednesday will be dedicated to her. Thank you for understanding.

Looking for a new pillow?

| 1 Post-It Notes ]


I am always on the lookout for a comfy pillow. Especially an orthopedic pillow! Core products' goal is to provide comfort from head to toe with products that aid in the natural healing process, whether you need  a neck pain pillow, a pillow for back pain treatment, sore wrists, elbows, ankles or lingering effects from knee injury, Core can help. I use 3-4 pillows a night! I like them surrounding me. My mother has chronic back pain and she uses a body pillow as well as a core pillow which is similar to the one Core has. So whether your goal is to help with pain or just be more comfy you can find the perfect pillow with core.

Summit On The Summit &The Clean Water Crisis

| 4 Post-It Notes ]


Normally on this blog I do Ways To Save, Reviews, Giveaways, and Ways To Make Money. Right now I want you to think about something. You can get right up and walk to your kitchen and get a glass of good, cold, and most of all CLEAN water. Do you realize how lucky we are? There are over ONE BILLION people who do not have access to clean drinking water. ONE BILLION. The most that are affected are children. Unsafe water and lack of sanitation is the largest cause of illness worldwide. Water-related diseases are the leading cause of death.

Right now at this moment Kenna, Lupe Fiasco, Jessica Biel, Emile Hirsch, Isabel Lucas and many more are climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro to stress the importance of the Clean Water Crisis. How can you help? Donate. 1 cent equals 1 liter of clean safe drinking water. Learn More. Spread The Knowledge.

Social Media Moms Celebration at Disney World ~ I'm Going!

| 5 Post-It Notes ]

For those of you who are familiar with my blog know that I have a *slight* obsession with Disney World. Actually my whole family does. It's our time to be a family, get away from the stress of our everyday lives, and make lasting memories. I was invited to attend to the awesomeness that is the Social Media Moms Celebration at my most favorite place in the world...Disney World. So of course I jumped up and down and started screaming to the kids "Guess what?!? We're going to Disney World!!!!" My oldest said calmly "I know mom. You told us. We go in April." As I'm still jumping up and down with Bella I tell him "Nope in Feb for a short trip and we are staying at the Polynesian!!!" So at this point we are all jumping around acting crazy.


 ***EDIT*** They are now full! Now for the even better news! They have opened up this event to everyone! Would YOU like to go? Disney along with Resourceful Mom Media, Mom Bloggers Club, 5MFM, and Mom Select are hosting this conference. For only $350 you and 3 other family members get 3 nights accommodation at the fabulous Deluxe Resort: The Polynesian. You will get 4 Day Parkhoppers for each member of your family and even some dining events paid for. It is the BEST Disney price you will ever find. PLUS you get a chance to hear some fabulous speakers and connect and network with some of your favorite bloggers. If you want to attend go to this 5MFM site for more information.

Are you going? I'd love to meet you! Make sure to leave a comment so I will know that you will be attending. Also be sure to use the hashtag #DisneySMMoms on twitter to chat with everyone beforehand. If you see me at the conference PLEASE come up and introduce yourself. I would love to meet you!

***Mom Moment Monday*** It's Freaking Cold!

| 3 Post-It Notes ]


It's time for another Mom Moment Monday! With this Mom Moment I want to talk about how freaking cold it is!!! I mean seriously. It's the coldest it has been in years. I actually had to buy a coat this year and warmer shoes. I'm usually a flipflops, crocs, or cute sandals kind of girl so this winter is really cramping up my style! Then yesterday morning we woke up to no water. Immediately I dbl checked the bank account to make sure the husband actually paid it on time and didn't forget and he did. So the pipes are frozen. For as long as we have lived here that has never happened. Uggggh. They are still frozen today too. I have turned up the heat and opened all the cabinets. Brian strapped some blankets with duct tape to the outside faucet/pipe. Everyone we talked to said do those 2 things and turn on the faucet in the bathtubs so when they do thaw out they won't bust. So Jack Frost if you happen to be reading my blog will you quit with your Artic Chill stuff so I can take a shower? I would really appreciate it!

I wore them for Christmas and loved how much they sparkled in the sunshine. My daughter even commented that I "sparkled like Edward" ;).

A cute keepsake in itself.  With Valentine's coming up now is the perfect time to order a beautiful piece of jewelry that doesn't have to break the bank!
