Here's how it works . Go to as many of your blog buddies as you want and tell them they have been boo-ed . Have them pick up this picture and add it to their blog and say with the link who boo-ed them . Put the picture in your sidebar if you want so then others know that you have already been boo-ed , if you post lots and it's not on the main page where everyone will see your boo-ed post!

With the growth of confusing Multi-symptom cold products out there and with so many of them being yanked off the shelves or becoming only available from a pharmacist/behind the counter .
Kids-EEZE from the makers of Cold-EEZE offers parents a safe and effective single - ingredient cold product designed to offer children six and up relief from chest congestion, without fear of over -medicating with products that contain multiple drugs.
Kids -EEZE Chest Relief is the first single ingredient chew designed to offer kids relief from chest congestion by loosening all that mucus and thinning bronchial secretions to help clear the bronchial pathways by making coughs more productive.
It's recommended for children six and older, they come in two flavors that kids shouldn't mind taking Strawberry and Grape . The thing I really like about them is they come in a chew form instead of liquid, which as most of you know can be a bit of a pain and quite messy trying to get into a kid that really doesn't want it!
I just want to say because this is a type of medicine , make sure you read the back of the box or go read the information on the site before giving it to your child. I don't know what your child may be allergic to and I am not a doctor.
I do know I will be using them for my kids though , since I like what I have read about them and love the form they come in instead of the messy liquid .
Kid-EEZE is available at most stores and drug stores as well as online and is priced around $7.99 for a box of twelve soft -chews .

They have sold more than 55 million cards already ( that is a lot of cards !) and to think I had no little girls to play with them. My son was into collecting different ones , but boy trading cards just are not as pretty as girl ones.
Later this month the Bella Sara family is expanding and they are going to welcome their new Bella Sara foals . They are going to have a whole new line of cards coming out featuring all the new babies !
On November 6th, the website is kicking off a 10 day celebration where kids can qualify for daily prizes, print off babies' birth certificates, read stories, print off color pages, get access to special codes and much much more !
I looked around and found out that you can buy Bella Sara products in lots of different stores and the packs of trading cards sell for around $2.99 . So if you have little girls or you have little girls you need to buy for , I say definitely go check these out !

MobiStories are narrated digital children's books with illustrations and music !
When I went and looked around the site I found it is very easy to understand ,and very easy to find what you are looking for. The books are set up in sections according to ages 1-6, 4-8 ,6-10 .
I went and looked at all of them , and they all have some great looking books in them.
There is even a sample book ,so you can see how it works . I think this is a great site and I will be using it . I don't know about you all ,but when my three older kids were little they wanted me to read to them all the time. Now I didn't mind that , but when you get asked to read the same book over and over and over it tends to get a little old!
With this you can buy books and then all you have to do is turn it on and your child can listen to someone else read the story to them and it even has sound effects ! Plus if they want to listen to it over and over ..no big deal !
Now here is the best part : You all can go download up to $10.00 of MobiStories for free just by using this code : BSM183A
Plus I noticed on the site if you enter your email ,you can get another book for free !

I'm not sure what exactly, I don't like the old ones but the new ones that started in the last 15 years and up are great. I think it has to do with now they can make them look so nice. I was saying before the older kids had alot of christmas movies to watch when they didn't have any on tv. I bought lots of them and even taped 6 hours worth one day just to have them.
That is all they use to watch once it was december and everyone started putting their lights on. I use to sell Partylite and I have alot of their snowman stuff, so once it was december I would have it all out and we would spend our evenings with them all lit and no other lights on other then the tv. The kids loved to look at all the stuff and I was lucky they never broke any of it.
Once christmas is over I like to rip the tree down as fast as I can, I find that once all the pretty presents are open then its just a bunch of crap in your living room and I would rather it all be put away. I get rid of everything christmas looking but like to keep anything just plain wintry out for another couple months. Then I put it all away and get out different stuff.
I can't wait for us to get a different house that I like so I can do the things I have always done. There is just something about this house, I have never bothered to unpack any of my pretty things, the walls are bare I left all my pictures packed too. I don't want to get anything out since I know someday we will move .
Anyways I'm rambling away here about nothing, back to what I was saying in the first place.
I want you to tell me what cartoons you look forward to each holiday season, and do your kids love it too or do they like a different one?
I loved Christopher The Christmas Tree, The Christmas Beauty and The Beast, Blue Toes, I always liked Annabelle too. I was lucky and my kids all liked those , plus they watched tons of other ones too. Now not so much , so there hasn't been any of those shows on in my home for a few years . However in the next year or so I'll be doing all the fun stuff again,because I'll have small children running around excited about Christmas and Santa !

I know all families are different and have different things they do for Christmas. When I was little it was , the tree was up for a couple weeks before Christmas and anytime someone came to visit they would bring their presents for you with them if they knew they wouldn't be seeing you again before Christmas. All those presents went under the tree, and you got to see them sitting there in their pretty paper and guess and wonder what was in each one.
Christmas morning after everything was opened you got ready and went to the grandparents that lived two hours away for dinner, where my grandmother had a few other presents for you at her house too. Then it was either you got ready and drove to the other grandparents , that lived another two hours from there and see what they got for Christmas and eat again or you went home and the next morning you got up and went to their house ,because you didn't the day before. Some years we went to both and then the next day all four grandparents came to our house for dinner or they would all come on new years day for dinner.
Since I had children , I have always done the you put any wrapped presents you get under the tree. I love the look of it, all the lights shining off the paper and ribbons and all the great looking prints on the paper. I grew up with opening one present on Christmas Eve before bed after you got home from the Christmas Eve service at church. I always have let my kids open one on Christmas Eve after they are in their pj's .
The other thing I have always done with them is watch Christmas cartoons. In December they play them everyday and evening and I had bought lots of movies for them to watch as well. We also always went to the Santa Claus parade and always came home had hot chocolate and watched some before bed.
Then I moved here, and everything changed !
My husband did things differently in his family since his parents divorce ,and new spouses and things came in to the picture. I have been stuck doing them too, ever since I moved here and each year instead of liking Christmas and all the neat things I have always done. I'm sad and angry to be drug off to do things I don't like and even Christmas dinners are not the same. I feel lonely and sad and to me it feels just like any other day ...not Christmas and not special or nice.
Heck they don't even have half of the Christmas cartoons on they always watched when they were little. I put up with it each year ,but I never like it. I have told my husband right from the start once we ever have a baby, I want to do the same things with it as I did with the other kids when they were little....now they are big and don't really want to wear cute little pj's and snuggle with me and watch cartoons .....I can't imagine why not ! hahaha
Now that everything is DVD instead of VHS, the 20 or so tapes I have are no good and I need to try and get the ones I love on DVDs so not this year , because he's too little but next year Brody can watch them . My husband knows and said it sounds great he wants us to have our own family traditions that we do. However I don't think his other family members will go for it, which bothers me. I feel like here I am away from everything I ever knew and they won't bend a little to make it at least some what nice for me.
I'm very private and very shy, I love getting up and having the kids all in their pj's and opening their presents with their parents when it's really early and still kind of dark so the tree looks really pretty. Then we can get ready and go see his parents in whatever order goes with their plans for the day. Here is where the problem is , ever since his parents divorced and remarried he goes to one of his parent's homes and all of his presents are there and they all open them together and then he goes to the other one's where ever they live and they do the same thing.
I have gone for the last few years, but boy do I hate opening my presents in front of all those people and them opening theirs in front of us. I just don't like it, because I'm shy and it makes me feel like I'm going to puke at any moment and the fact that you have to drag all their gifts with you when you go there and then drag all the ones you get back home with you. Now there is going to be baby crap too !
The other problem I have with this little (stupid) setup is ,you don't have any gifts under your tree to look at for a week or two all pretty and it takes away from the kids being all excited every time they see them sitting there,trying to guess what they are...to me that is a fun thing for kids and they grow out of it soon enough.
This year won't matter he's too small, but next year I want to start the tradition of having him see all the pretty gifts under there and have the nice nights of sitting with us watching Christmas cartoons . I want to go see his parents and bring them their gifts the week or two before so they have them under their tree for their Christmas mornings in their homes. If they have extra ones for him to open on Christmas day at their house great, it gives a kid something to look forward to on the drive there and something to play with while we are there .
I think kids should be able to get up and spend a couple hours playing with all their new stuff in their home in their pj's with their parents and I don't want to share that moment with others.
Am I being foolish wanting it this way ? I don't get home, I don't get pretty snowy Christmas Eve's and mornings or a Santa parade with mittens on and drinking Tim Horton's or anything else I have had for 30 some years , can't I at least have Christmas morning the way I want it ?
Well that's enough of my whining ! Do any of you have something special you do for Christmas, that you have always done?

I'm a SAHM and I have four kids...for now, and I too am a visitor to Kansas ! My husband has lived here since he was a little boy . When he got out of the military he came back here to visit, and ended up staying.... so that is how I landed here!
I'm from Canada and lived here for 30 years before moving to Kansas. If you would like to learn some facts about my old home go here . Even though my husband has lived here ever since he was a little boy he is an OU fan forever. Which tends to make our house stand out when you go up the street and we have an OU rock in our flowerbed, while everyone else on the street and in town has one or the other Kansas flags flying in their yard!
Here is a cool or weird or even dorky little fact about me. When I was a little girl I loved reading Anne of Green Gables and I loved reading the Little House books. Well I lived a day trip away from Anne's home in P.E.I my whole life up until I moved and now I live just a short drive to Little House , now how many people can say that ..not many I'm guessing... if any !
I find living here is pretty much the same as where I grew up. The town I live in is very small and everyone is very friendly. They have a nice downtown and cute little shops here, it's pretty laid back with not much excitement .
However all that changes around this time of year !
I have always seen people decorate for Halloween and kids go trick or treating ,but I have never seen a week long festival held for Halloween they even have a big big parade. I have been to Santa Clause Parades but never Halloween ones. They call it Neewollah and if you live anywhere in the neighboring states I'm sure you have heard of it ,since bands from all of them come here to be in the parade. They block off all of down town for a week and have the streets lined with food vendors of every kind from all over, they have a big craft sale and concerts and even a big pageant where they crown Queen Neelah each year!
This year Terri Clark is performing ,and they have had others such as Reba and other great country singers . They even have a big tent with the real Budweiser horses and dalmatians, that you can go look at with other goodies from Budweiser to see ! The parade is always started with a couple fighter jets flying over the crowds packing the sidewalks to watch , I have never seen a parade started with jets before, and boy do they fly as low as they can....it's loud and makes some little ones cry and others who are not expecting it jump looking very surprised!
It all began back in 1919 ,and is the oldest and largest annual festival in Kansas!
If you would like to check it out and look at some pictures click here .
Another thing this town in known for is that William Inge was born here, and wrote his famous play Picnic about the lake that is here in town. It just so happens, that it is right in my mil's back yard !
Since living here I have found out all kinds of neat things, and learned alot about the history Kansas has to offer . Also because it is right in the center of so many other great states, I have been able to see them as well !
I hope you all enjoyed your stop here, and maybe learned something new about Kansas .
Thanks for stopping by, come back for a visit anytime !
****Try It Tuesday will be back next week. I was ready to go and had some visitors drop by !****

juice from roasting pan
****I just love it when it all runs together , no matter how many times you spaced it out !*****
My dh just asked me why I call it dressing, that's just what I grew up with hearing. I know stuffing is stuffed into the bird and I'm sure that's where the name came from. Well I'm guessing dressing is for kind of the same reason,people would also stuff it in the bird to let the flovors go through it while cooking , however I grew up with hearing people say they need to dress the turkey which means season it and get it ready for the oven and since stuffing that inside is all part of the dressing , I guess it just got named dressing . The same way stuffing got it's name !

Since I did my contest for the Lansinoh products, they have started a new site. It's one for moms to get all kinds of info on breastfeeding , babies and moms. They also have a forum set up , and I really like how it's set up all the topics are in bright yellow so they are easy to find. I joined and have been reading and looking around and I think it will be one that I keep going back to. Here's the link if anyone wants to go have a look around http://www.lansinohmoms.com/ .
I think I'm going to make turkey and dressing and stuff tomorrow, if I do I'll take pictures and post how to make it sometime this week for anyone that wants to try it. I also would like to run out to Walmart and see about getting some frames for the baby's pictures that I haven't done yet. I also want to get another big jug of bug spray, so I can do my house and all around the outside. I don't have any bugs in here and I don't want any , and since I see so many outside and it's going to start getting cold ...I don't want them to think they should come spend the winter in here!
I guess I'm going to do some reading and once little man ever goes to bed, I'll do the same. I'll be up and bored for awhile and then early in the morning if any of you are bored and wanna talk!
I haven't seen my friends in three years! However I don't feel like I'm going to die or anything. I always get the feeling , that men just act or feel like it's their right to go play golf or go hang out with their friends...just because they feel like it! I have never said well I want to go do this ,because I haven't seen them or did anything with them in months or in my case years!
He works from 7:30 to 7 or 8 every night and two nights a week he goes to college class until 10 at night. There are lots of days he doesn't get to leave for lunch and when he does it's always around 2 or 3 never around 12 or so. He works on Saturdays until 11 or sometimes 1 and sometimes doesn't get home until 3-4. On Sunday mornings he has to still get up and make calls for an hour or two, and let's not forget he has the work phone on 24/7 and it rings that too!
It is nothing for the phone to ring 5 times after he gets home Saturday afternoon and another 5-10 before midnight and then it rings every night after work while we are trying to watch our shows and eat our supper. It also rings in the middle of the night, sometimes it can be handled in two minutes , sometimes the light is on and he has to flip through papers or get on the computer.
On top of that I still have a baby who likes to wake up at night and never sleep in the day. So I have not really had any rest in the last 8 months and very little from that phone in three years !
I understand he works alot and sometimes he needs to just go do things that have nothing to do with work, but I want them to be with me since it's me that suffers right along with him....not his friends!
Am I the only one that feels this way ? Do you all think your man can spend his five minutes of free time with others instead of you and the kids and that's fine. I don't mind the golf thing on Sunday mornings, but the going out to the river fishing and camping from late this afternoon until tomorrow morning sometime bothers me a little.
I said I don't care as long as he does the things I want him to do before he goes and I'll be fine with that, but it does bother me a little that he feels the need so bad to hang out with friends. I would have said no I never get to see Jenn as it is so weekends are when we do things or I would have said I'll come for awhile ,but then I'm going home .
Why do men never think like that on their own, without you having to say it to them?

I pulled my groin muscle , twisted my knee and it just happened to be in the leg that I have pains in sometimes anyway. So now I have major pain from right beside my girly parts all the way down to my ankle instead of stopping at my knee like it usually does when you do that.
Of course today would be the day Brody decides to start trying to stand up by things. It kills me to try and jump up and catch him before he falls back and smacks his head on the wood floor.
So that is how my day is going, how about you ?
Wednesday, October 15, 2008
A couple of you who are reading this know ,but most do not . Before we had Brody , my husband and I went through a bad time. I... like so many of you took the at home test ,and it said yes faint but still yes. I went to the doctor and did the blood test and she called an hour or so later and said yes.
I went in the next morning and they did all the blood work. I didn't want to tell anyone until later, but my husband being his first one was too excited. He told his mom and called his dad and his best friend from the army. We told the kids ,but other then that I had no one to tell .
I had a few times where I was spotting and had never done that before, I have read though that it does happen to lots of women and since it wasn't bad and I had no pain ..I let it go. I thought I noticed my boobs weren't hurting anymore at one point but once again , I didn't really give it another thought after all I had three kids already and its been 10 years so I went about my days.
Then we went for our first doctor visit at 10 weeks and she wanted to do an ultra sound just to see how things were going. I had just mentioned the spotting and she said oh that's nothing lots of women do that, I said I never have but she reminded me she sees alot more pregnant women then I do so I dropped it.
I laid there as she got ready to have a look at the baby, my husband all happy holding my hand waiting to see his baby for the first time. I looked at the screen and knew something was not right, I have had a few of these before. I never said anything , my husband didn't really have a clue what he was looking at anyway so he didn't see what I did.
The doctor looked and looked and then said to me , you did get a positive back right ? I said yes and three at home ones before it, she said well I'm not finding anything. She looked at my chart and said yes it says pregnant ,go to the lab right now and have another one. I walked over there and had it done and then went back to her office to wait. After awhile they called us back in and she said well it came back negative.
She said you most definitely were pregnant because I'm reading your test results, but sometimes women can be pregnant and then it just goes away and they never know it was there. However because you guys were watching for it you just happened to test at the right time and it showed up if you had waited a week you would have gotten a negative when you tested.
We went home , I was shocked and felt so stupid that I thought I was pregnant for the last few weeks. I mean I never had anything go wrong before and I did have signs that I wasn't or something was going on wrong at least and I just ignored them. I cried because I felt like such a stupid idiot!
We were supposed to go away that weekend to his grandfather's 80th birthday, instead I had to watch my husband call his dad and tell him we wouldn't be coming and there was not going to be a baby. I cried watching my husband be heartbroken, and breaking his dad's heart . My husband was the last boy in the family, in fact the Army told him he didn't have to go to Iraq because he is. He still went ,because he wanted to be with his guys. His dad had been so excited for us and the thoughts of maybe it was going to be a boy to carry on the family name added to it, so I know that he was very sad .
I would have been due October 20th . However a couple months later I got pregnant and didn't bother going to the doctor until three weeks after my positive test at home and I did about 10 of them. I told my husband that this time we couldn't tell anyone until after we see the baby and know that it's in there and everything is good. So we waited and kept it to ourselves, we went a few weeks later and she did an ultra sound and there he was in there ,and everything was good.
We went home and he called his dad ,and said we are going to have a baby and we just seen it moving around in there . This time I was due Feb 20th . We had Brody on the 12th and I have to say I have never seen a grandfather love a baby as much as my fil loves Brody. He lives two hours away and doesn't see him that much ,but when he does that baby will go right to him every time with a smile on his face! He cries sometimes with different people he doesn't know ,but he never ever did that with his papa.
I have gone through a miscarriage with two of my close friends . A couple of blog friends I have, have also gone through it since I have known them and it makes me cry every time . For me it wasn't as sad because I was more interested in the medical part of how it all works, I would have been a labor and delivery nurse if I hadn't gotten pregnant so young and had a baby at 19. I felt worse for my husband, I know if it had happened to me when I was farther along and had to feel everything ,then it would have been hard for me and even though it was a bad thing I'm glad it happened how it did and not later.
So tonight I will light my candle and you should too ! As this is something that touches almost everyone, whether it is you personally or someone you are close to or just someone you know.
If everyone lights a candle and lets it burn for an hour, there will be a wave of light that will travel the world.

I bought a bottle of the International Delight creamer in Pumpkin Pie Spice . I like it , but all I have is french van coffee. I think it would be better in non flavored coffee.
I also bought the Sara Lee Pumpkin Cheesecake . I don't hate it , but I won't ever buy it again ! I'll make sure it gets eaten though , because it was almost 7 bucks for the little thing !
I watched The Other Boleyn Girl on Saturday night while the dh was out and I liked it and would watch it again if it was on. I know some people didn't like it , but I did.
Then we watched Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day on Sunday and it was good, but I don't need to watch it again. I have seen lots of others really loved it though.
I was going to get pictures , but have been busy trying to get the baby's room changed around how I want it and didn't get to it. Anything I talk about are things I have bought or movies I've rented or own and are just my thoughts on them . If I say I hated something feel free to try it yourself , you might like it or you will think I shouldn't have wasted my money like Jenn did !

My kids hated to get baths and have their hair washed for about the first two years of their lives ! So since I have three older kids 2 years apart I spent way too many bath times listening to screaming and crying. Then when my son was about three something changed and all of a sudden he LOVED baths and would ask to get in the tub 2-3 times a day to play with his toys in all the bubbles. He just turned 11 and although he doesn't play with all the toys in the tub he use too, he still likes to get baths with bubbles and those little things that turn the water crazy colors
Once again I find myself with a baby who hates baths! However this time around , there is a great product out there to make bath and bubble time much more fun and easier for me .
Bath Blizzard by Kid Kleen is a great new product in an exciting new line of kid's bath activity toys !
Kid Kleen products are safe,non toxic and hypo-allergenic . Their products are also ophthalmogist and pediatrician approved.
The Bath Blizzard instantly creates a waterfall of soapy fun bubbles , with a turn of a knob. That way your bubble bath never runs out of bubbles !
It fits right on the tub, tile wall or on the flat side of the tub using suction cups. So it doesn't ruin your bath tub or walls.
Now when the Aquadoodle came out my kids were past the stage of making a mess with everything they could get their little hands on. However I thought it was a great idea when I first seen them on TV. So now before I know it my little fella is going to be old enough, that he is going to enjoy drawing and making pictures and writing his letters and numbers. I can't wait for him to start doing all kinds of new things. I however am not looking forward to finding his artwork on my walls or table or anywhere else he decides it will look good on !
So when I seen the Aquadoodle again, I told my husband we are going to be getting that for sure !
It is so wonderful ! All you do is add water to the magic pen and they can draw all they want on their mat. There is no mess and when I say mess I mean ..no marks on your table ,walls furniture and yes even on your child or his/her siblings ! The Draw'N Doodle mat is fabric and can be used over and over again !
I also like that, you would not believe how many pieces of paper I have thrown away with scribbles on them. So the fact that this is reusable is great, not only does it save you from cleaning marks off everything it also saves you from buy and throwing away lots and lots of paper! To me that's a good thing, since I have other things I need to spend my money on !
Both products can be found at lots of different stores and I think they are both worth your time and money to go and check them out !
Thanks again to mom team for letting me know about the great new Bath Blizzard and reminding me about the Aquadoodle .
I love the nipple cream and wipes and I've used the lansinoh to lanolize my wool diaper covers. I've also put some in soap I have made with bee's wax. Tons o' uses! I'm having a new baby and I'm out of lansinoh...so I'm going to be selfish and if I win use this for me and baby.

Email me your mailing info and I'll get it sent to you as soon as I can. If I don't hear from you by Wednesday , I'll use the picker thing again for a new winner.
It was pretty boring here all weekend , we had supper at the mil's last night . Other then that I never left the house. I need to get cleaning the baby's room and pack all the stuff away he doesn't wear or use anymore , so he can start going in there and playing . Once I get his room clean I can put the gate up then when I'm busy he can be safe in there and I don't have to watch where he's crawling off to.
I wanted to make dressing and turkey and stuff today since it's Thanksgiving back home and I haven't got to have it in about 4 years,but I didn't go get the stuff. Maybe I will make it later this week.

After awhile you learned how to get other things you thought were yummy !
You LOVED trucks !
and yes, you still LOVED that thumb !
You still play lots of games , not on the computer anymore . In your room and I still can hear the anger in your voice when Sonic isn't doing what you want. So even though you are a big boy when you seen Sonic at one of the games this summer you just had to have it and thank goodness we won it the first try!

That's nuts I would hope that if one of my kids did that I'd die ,because I don't think I could handle living knowing my own child planned to kill his father and I and his siblings.
I just do not understand how people can act so nuts ,and then blame it on having a bad childhood or whatever other excuse they can come up with ! I can tell you all I survived a childhood that would make most of you cry, and I never killed anyone .....in fact I have never even stolen candy like lots of young kids do and I haven't even drove my car without my seat belt !
So when I see and hear on TV and on the news about kids growing up with two parents who loved them and were good to them and gave them everything....I get PISSED when I hear them say some stupid little excuse to why they hated their family and wanted them dead!
OK, that's the end of my rant.... sorry !
My hubby likes it and thought he'd make it since in the 4 years we have been together he hasn't once made it. Well I hope in the next 60 years he doesn't ever again!
I like Mexican food ,but I don't like refried beans to me they are mushy yucky looking crap that looks like a kid had in their mouth and then decided after ten minutes they didn't like it and spit it out. Well I guess him and his army buddies loved this dish every time he made it, proving my point males will eat anything ,even if it's a mushy looking glob as long as you put hot sauce on it!
I like homemade baked beans with homemade bread or rolls ,or even canned beans and salad and BBQ. So I'm not knocking beans , just over cooked yucky looking ones!
We watched Forgetting Sarah Marshall yesterday and let's just say he might not have been able to forget her.......but I can ! It was funny in spots ,but now that I have seen it once I won't ever watch it again.
It was college football here all weekend, he watches college football news all week and then he watches every game we get and with the dish that's almost every one being played on Saturday ! He doesn't watch NFL unless there is nothing else on.
Here is the comment from the winner of the coupons :
That Cream Basil looks YUM-o! I have to go with the Grands Cin. Rolls for sure!!!

I like to have a routine or schedule to go by, I don't like to never know what I'm doing . So what I have decided is when I have a giveaway I'll announce it on Saturday , (Surprise Saturdays) that way I can label it. I'm always going to announce winners on Mondays ( Make My Monday ) that way they will be easy to find, if I'm going back looking for something and yes I just told you so really it's no surprise ,but it still is kind of because you will never know what it is until I put it up there. I was also thinking I'm going to do my own spin on the Tuesday thing ,alot of people do Tasty Tuesday and give you recipes...well I'm not going to do that.
I'm going to do Try It Tuesdays.... not every week ,but sometimes when I have tried some new things that I like I'm going to let you all know what I tried and the ones I think are good. It could be anything that I happen to buy and want to share and since it's on Tuesday that I share it ,you can try it when you get your groceries later in the week.
Since this is my blog ,and I don't do paid post I'll talk about anything I want to ! If we watch a movie and it's good I'll say so,if I think it sucks big time I'll tell you that too! I watch alot of TV at night and on the weekends ,since my hubby works ALL THE TIME ! I'm going to share what I think about TV shows too.
I have seen alot of blogs lately that the person doesn't post for a week and sometimes weeks or even a couple months,because they don't have anything to talk about. My life really isn't that exciting either ,so when nothing is going on really that is worth talking about at least I'll have something to talk about.
The first thing I'm going to tell you to look for is on TV , if you have never seen The Neely's you should ! They started with a cooking show on Saturday mornings at 10:00, I have it on right now ! Then they came out with a new show where they travel around the country checking out cool food and how it's made . I love both shows,I think they are just so cute and funny together and they crack me up ,even the dh watches them if he happens to be home.
So if you have never seen them check them out :
Down Home With The Neely's is on Saturdays 11am/10c
Road Tasted With The Neely's is on Fridays at 8pm/7c
Both are on the food network and you can catch them again at different times throughout the week,just like all their shows.
I hope everyone has a nice weekend, and if you find yourself bored at home like me check out the Neely's !
One more thing : O.J. found guilty on all charges ......well it's about time , he goes down for something !

Tag five other people to do the same.
OK , well since I never read books that are set in modern time ,mine is set in the Civil War and some people just won't find it interesting ...... Oh Well ! ......I love them !
The book I'm reading and almost finished is : On Secret Service , by John Jakes . He is the same guy that wrote North and South !
" Back in Chicago, Pinkerton called Lon in . The boss congratulated him on his keen observation and quick thinking,which Webster had generously reported. Pinkerton gave Lon a handshake and an immediate promotion to operative. In the next few months Lon was almost too busy to see that sectional strife was pushing the country closer to a final confrontation over slavery " .
Then the next chapter starts and it's talking about the woman character in the story and would really confuse you all !
I'm not going to tag anyone , but feel free to steal this from me. If you do this meme though come back and leave me a comment so I can go read yours ! I was tagged by Karen at http://surroundedbyseamonkeys.blogspot.com/ , who is better then me and followed the rules and tagged 5 people. So go over there and see who she picked and then go see what they are reading!

If you haven't tried Lansinoh yet ..you should !
The Lansinoh company was started by a breastfeeding mother more then 20 years ago. For over 20 years Lansinoh has provided relief and comfort to millions of mothers and their babies.
They use the world's purest and safest lanolin in their products. Their Lansinoh Brand Lanolin for Breastfeeding mothers is wonderful and soothes,heals and protects dry cracked skin . It is also the leading topical in its category and is recognized around the world.
It 's the only topical nipple treatment endorsed by La Leche League International. The best part is it's safe and you don't have to remove it before feeding your baby!
As for their Diaper Rash Ointment...I love it ! Most of you know I have 4 kids and my oldest is almost 16, so over the years I have tried alot of the new ones they come out with. This one is by far my favorite and here's why :
When you put it on your baby it comes out of the tube nice and silky,it rubs on very easy unlike some of them that is kind of in a glob and then while you are trying to keep your baby's legs still and keep from getting peed on you have to try to spread that glob everywhere.
This cream is easy to work with you can spread it on really fast ,and the best part is it rubs on clear ! So no more having the baby covered in a thick layer of white goo !
Now here is another trick I do with it, my baby tends to drool ALOT ! He gets a really red sore looking rash on his neck under his double chin between it and on his neck. I rub it on there and it protects him from all the wet drool and keeps him from getting the rash..plus it's clear and has no scent ...so nobody knows it's there !
If you want to go take a look around at their site and see what other great products they have here's the link http://www.lansinoh.com/index.php?submenu=home&src=
Now here is the best part , I have a tube of the Diaper Rash Ointment , a tube of the Lansinoh Lanolin and a package of their wipes for one lucky mom and baby !
So if you have a baby, you are going to have a baby or if you are going to a shower ,this is a great prize for you!
To enter all you have to do is leave a comment between now Oct 1st and Fri Oct 10th until midnight. Tell me if you have ever tried it and who you would like to win it for !
