Prima Princessa presents Swan Lake

I wanted to give a heads up that I have a great review coming up on Prima Princessa presents Swan lake.

I also have at least two giveaways coming up for some toothbrushes & a precious moments figurine! Plus I will be giving away something for the Summer Blog Contest that is coming up at the end of this month!

With summer, I am having a hard time keeping up with blogging & emails. My kids always want to go in the pool & that means me sitting outside. I so need a laptop bad!

Finally went to see Fireworks

We finally went to see fireworks yesterday. It rained a lot the week of the 4th, so we didn't bother trying to go see any of them then. The next one near us was last night.

Cam was upset because she expects fireworks on her birthday (the 3rd) but it didn't work out this year.

We had a lot of fun. The fireworks lasted about 25 minutes. They were great, no hesitations at all. They had a band playing 80's music. I guess is started a little before 7, but we didn't get there till around 9. The fireworks started a little before 10.

There is another firework show coming up on the 20th that we might head to as well. Only so much to do in the summer since we aren't vacationing this year. Have to give the girls some memories, lol.

I have pics but they are on my camera still. Will update when I upload my pictures :)

My tween is getting jealous of her little sister ...

My poor tween is getting jealous of her little sister lately. Now that I am reviewing products, my little one gets some cool stuff to try out. There is never anything for my older one. I did get a cool new notebook for her to try out (review coming soon!). That didn't ease her pain though, lol.

I wish there were more products geared towards tweens. Not just to review of course. I have noticed that during holidays, popular searches are always what to get a tween. It is a hard age, growing out of toys, but still too young to enjoy teenager & adult items. The things that they do seem to like start getting expensive.

Even with clothes though, you see so many shops geared towards babies & toddlers, barely any towards the little bit older girl. Too bad I wasn't more crafty, it would be a great market to get into it.

I will have to be on a hunt now for cool products for the tween girl. If you know of any or sell something & want it featured here, just contact me!

The Most Inspirational Story

This would be my first pregnancy. I was 19 years old, I wanted a girl very badly. About 3 months into my pregnancy, I started having bad back pains. I thought it was from the pregnancy. Honestly, I'm not sure what I was thinking considering I gained a total of 17 lbs my entire pregnancy, but I was 19 & I had heard that pregnancy was hard on your back. Anyways, I had bad back pains, but my doctor visits always went well. My mom even bought me one of those belts to help with pain & my belly was so small it wouldn't even stay down. By 5 months (around July 4th actually) I was very sick. Terrible pain, bad chills,…

I was contacted by EZ School supplies, and I happily took them up on their offer to do a review. One of the biggest things I dread before the new school year is buying school supplies.
