Mommy Daughter Date- High Tea at the Botanical Garden

We arrived at the beautiful botanical garden in Illinois on a nice sunny day.   We were dressed in our new pretty dresses and were excited about our "high tea" date.   

We soon poured our tea and added some sugar cubes and waited for our friends.   We ate some little desserts and got a little goofy with the photo booth.  

We also made some fun tissue paper flowers and then had to strike another pose for the camera.  

 After that we went and toured the greenhouse and outside area.   It was beautiful!!!   The many different plants and flowers were stunning.  

Dear Selah,

I hope you find this letter one day when you are older and remember the fun day we had.   The tea cups were white with gold and red in them, you didn't like your tea very much and you added 3 sugar cubes.  I will remember your adorable star dress you wore and your cute pigtails and of course your fashion glasses.  I know you were adorable and the truth is I felt pretty as well with my new hair cut and cause you loved my dress.  This date was sponsored by the girl scouts and it is such an honor to go do these things with you!   I love our dates!!!   

xoxoxox   Love, Mom

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,
