Praises of a Wife and Mommy was created for mom's like me. I like to share secrets, parenting advice, deals, the many arts and crafts that we do at our at home preschool, and most importantly share my faith. My many roles go beyond mom they also include, preschool teacher, Children's church teacher, youth pastor, wife, and one role I love Christ follower. Praises of a Wife and Mommy started small but is cotinuing to grow. I love to review products and hold giveaways.

My Review: Thank you Southwest Beverages for sending me samples to conduct an honest review. I was not paid for this review and all opinions are 100% mine. The samples that were sent to me include:
I am a fan of staying warm so sipping on a hot drink always puts me in my happy place. When my package arrived and as soon as I broke the seal of the box my senses were on high alert to the sweet smells of each flavor. I could really smell the peppermint the most!
I left the box on the counter and while I was at work the next day my husband and our church intern started the taste testing without me! They ended up creating a great recipe for a very creamy and flavorful cup! Here is my Sippity Creation recipe:
1/2- half in half
pour in french press
heat it for 2 min in french press
froth it with the french press plunger
Very simple! Trust me if you do not have a french press then it is time you invest in one! :) I know that recipe is going to add many more calories instead of just using water but the flavor is fantastic and worth it. Sippity and Kemosa is caffeine free and gluten free. Overall the selection of different flavors are unique and tasty and the price per cup is very fair! Stay warm this winter with a warm cup from Southwest Beverages! :)

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
