I want a new comforter set... no I am thankful for what I have!

Do you ever have days where you look around the house and think I would love to replace this and that and oh if I had more money I would get one of these days?  I know it is very silly for me to WANT instead I should be thankful for all the things I do have.  I am very thankful!  God has blessed me so much and I am so grateful!

For instance it would be kinda fun to replace my cheap shower curtain with a nice elegant shower curtain.  Then I think about it more and with 2 kids what purpose would I have to needing an elegant shower curtain especially when I live in an apartment.  LOL

Another thing I love buying is comforter sets.  I love getting into bed with fresh sheets.  I would love to buy a yellow comforter set  or even some faux leather pillows, but then I am reminded that my husband sweats while he sleeps and my fun yellow comforter and sheets would soon be discolored from sweat stains.  I love you dear and your sweaty spells.  LOL, I guess we will stick with our brown sheets.  :)

Do you ever have to sit back and rethink your motives.  I am very thankful for the things I have and there is a huge difference between a want and a need.  I am going to start teaching my daughter more about wants and needs but first I had to assess myself and I realized I fall into the want want want attitude.  So I am changing to a grateful and happy attitude and praise God for the many blessings he gives me daily!  :)   Who knows someone might just be led to bless us with one of those many things that I think I need even though I am blessed with a perfectly good one now.  :)

Thank-you Jesus for providing for all of my needs!  Help me to not be selfish in my wants but to have a heart of thanksgiving to  you!

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
