Happy 61st Birthday in Heaven Mom

Happy Heavenly Birthday Mom!!!

Sometimes it's a challenge to try to make these events loving and fun but when you have a dear friend buy you a cookie cake and lights a candle the next thing you know is your misty eyed and thankful. 

Thankful for friends who understand the grief and sadness. 

Thankful for a family that will do whatever I tell them when I talk about my mom or their grandma.

Thankful for sweet memories that pop in my head as our birthdays roll around or whenever.

Thankful that I know without a doubt that she is with her loving savior!

Thankful everytime my kids want me to tell a story about her.

Thankful that I can cry with my kids in a way that they understand that it is tear of love and missing her.

Thankful for my family who always encourages and helps keep her memory fresh in all our minds. 

Thankful to a God who gave me my mom for 18 great years here on earth but eager to see her again in heaven.  

I love you 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.

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,
