Where I was 10 years ago...

I know each American knows exactly where they were when the attacks of 9/11/01 occurred.  I was a senior in high school and I was one of the first ones in school to hear about the attacks as I was in a weight lifting class and we have the radio blasting as we work out.  I know our teacher was confused and left for a minute and we all stopped lifting looked confused and headed to the locker room.  My next class was science class and our classes combined with history and we turned on the TV and discussed and watched everything on the news.  At that moment I was still in shock and had no emotions.  When I got home from school that day I sat down with my mom and we both shared some tears.  It seemed like the week went by slow as we continued to see the replay on the news of the towers falling.  I know we were praying for more survivors to be found and watched waiting to hear that a life was saved.  
The cross that was left at ground zero. 

"I look up to the mountains— does my help come from there? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth!” Psalm 121:1-2 NLT

There were some brave hero's that day!  I pray today that families who lost a loved one that day have a healed heart and now have a relationship with Jesus and a testimony to share!

I had the opportunity to visit ground 0 in 2003 when I went on a road trip with  college friend and her mom and brother.  We had a great time but we made sure to stop at ground 0.  Almost 2 years had passed and it was still a major clean up.

Where were 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,
