Frugal Friday and super saving saturday

Frugal shopping trips are always fun. This week my daughter was visiting for a little while so we took full advantage of it and went shopping. We started at Kroger and found great sales on bread, donuts, milk, can goods and deli. Wow we were doing great. We then traveled to WalMart. I am not sure if it is in all Super Walmarts but we have been having some super sales on meat. So we searched the meat section for some great meat buys and found several. Before leaving the store we found winter/spring clothes on sale down to $1 each for shirt / pants. Great buys. Well that was my frugal shopping trip.

Aloha Friday

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.
In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.
My daughter found out that she is yet another medication after experiencing side effects. The rest of the family are also experiencing allergies of a different sort ones related to spring weather. My question is:
Do you suffer from allergies?

Dabib Review

Have you ever had a great time feeding your little one only to find that the mess left behind is tremendous and must be dealt with? When little ones are starting to learn to eat they make messes. When the todlers feed theirselves they make messes. The one great thing out there to help maintain this mess is the Dabib.

Da Hugs Print
Da Giggles
Da Hugs Solid
All of the great DaBibs fit great. The Dabib has worked wonderful for us and allows us to feed our granddaughter without the fear of removing the bib only to find left over food. We believe that the fitness of the neck helps place the bib on top of the wish list.
Some of the great features of the Dabib are:
  • Scrunch collar keeps liquids from getting under the bib, reducing stains and frequent changing
  • Food pouch catches crumbs and drips – hidden on the back of the bib when not in use
  • Uni-collar attaches in front, easy to put on and take off
  • Extra large hour glass shape protects infants through toddlers
  • Made of environmentally friendly materials, non-toxic, lead-free
The Dabibs makes a perfect baby shower gift and one that you know will be used. What is greater than a bib that is useful and helps the parents cut down on messes?
Buy: You can by the great DaBib by for the great price of $12. 99 by visiting the Dabib website here

Review of Seventh Generation Products

Seventh Generation makes wonderful products that are created for both household and personal use and reflect green natural clean. No need to worry about pets or little ones being harmed by the cleaners since the great Seventh Generation products are made of natural materials. Seventh Generation makes products that range from baby products, household cleaners and feminine products.

We are in the midst of potty training at our house. Therefore training pants, and wipes are major needs. We received some training pants from Seventh Generation Products. These training pants are working out quite well. Just like other leading brand diapers they have great elastic leg gathers and are resealable as well. However, Seventh Generation training pants possess an green environment friendly great for you product by chlorine free, fragrance free and hypo allergenic. The diapers come in a variety of sizes.

We also received the great Chlorine free baby wipes. Our little one has lots of problems with the baby wipes available on the store shelf. Your little one may be the same as ours. The Seventh Generation diaper wipes are free of dyes and fragrances. The chlorine free wipes may help prevent diaper rash in your little one. One of the great things about the Seventh Generation website is that they share exactly what is located in the products. So if there any questions about ingredients you can look on the website and see instantly.

As an added bonus we received the great baby laundry detergent. My daughter has followed in a long line of moms who use a separate laundry detergent for the baby. The great detergent created by Seventh Generation is great for the earth as well as for the baby. The laundry detergent cleans great while is safe and mild for the baby.

K C Fuzzy Review

K. C. Fuzzy
K. C. Fuzzy designs are created using illustrations that seem to come right out of nature. The four great designs that K. C. Fuzzy illustrations place on onesies are

Katie Covington, illustrator of the KC Fuzzy onesies. The baby animals illustrated so graciously on the onesies bring about a realism placing us right back into the naturalistic environment. Katie tries to capture the emotional qualities of the animals (joy, curiosity, innocence, and amusement) Just like our little ones that we love have personalities of their own the animals on the clothing show personality as well. The great KC Fuzzy onesies come in 3m, 6m, and 12 m
Buy: You can buy these great KC Fuzzy Onesies straight from the website located here

Classy Kid review and giveaway


Two of the most important things to a mother when shopping for great products is ease and safety of use and clean up. Classy Kid product can fit into each of these categories. I thought the classy kid items were great and fit the need for both the child the item is intended for and the parent of that child.

For example the Keep Me Coloring Germ Defense Placemats serve many arenas. For safety so that the food the young child is eating is kept away from the dirty surface of the table. Secondly the coloring of these placemats helps to serve as a boredom buster. These great mats are like waterproof coloring paper. No need to worry about either the crayons or the mat moving since the mat will stick to the table and the shape of the crayons allows them to stay in place.

The Keep Me Clean Disposable Bibs are really nice. They are long enough to keep the child clean. The great bibs are also great for traveling. The Keep Me Clean Disposable Bibs have a crumb pocket which is great for runaway dtoplets. The bib holds securely in place so that the child may eat without getting messy and the parent can enjoy a relaxing meal time without worry of the bib falling down. When you are ready to toss the bib there is no need to worry as the bib is composed of environmentally degradable soft, waterproof material.
There are four other products that Classy kid, Inc. included in the great green and clean collection are:

  1. Public Potty Protectors which are great for little ones who are potty trained. The great potty protectors cover the seat allowing a layer of protection. The Classy Kid Inc, created the great public potty protector so that nothing intefers with pottying and makes the child feel as if he is sitting on paper toweling.

  2. Changing Table Cover which allows us to protect even the youngest of them. So many times while out in public the babies diaper will need to be changed. The great thing is that there is now a diaper changing station in most public places. The problem is that we are not always for sure that the changing table is clean. The changing table covers by classy kid Inc helps to ensure the safety.
  3. Keep Me Tidy Diaper Sacks are perfect for those natural bombs. The bombs that happen in your little ones diaper. Traveling with little ones can be most challenging when it comes to diaper changing. Now you have the perfect bag to take along on the trips to place that not so new diaper in. The great diaper sacks created by Clean Kid Inc, are safe, biodegradable and stops the spread of borne disease causing germs

Buy: You can buy these great products at various online sites as well as a variety of stores. To find the perfect location for you check here.

The great people at Classy Kid Inc, wants one of Annies Home reader a great collection of their wonderful products which include the Keep Me Coloring Placemats, Keep Me Healthy Potty Protectors, Keep Me Clean Disposable Bibs, Keep Me Clean Changing Table Covers, Keep Me Tidy Diaper Sacks.

For your chance to win: You must visit the Clean Kid Inc, website and share a germ defense fact with me

heavy tees review

We received a great onesie from Heavy Tees. These are super cute and the sayings on these are funny as can be. We loved them and know that our little one looks great in them.

Heavy Tees goal is to outfit the world in great looking tees. At Heavy Tees the personalities are reflected in the great tees and onesies they create. They believe that authenticity, innovation and quality are the three key ingredients that they place in every product that they make. They use personality and whimsy designs to create such wonderful tees and onesies. Their love for their works comes in seeing their shirts worn rather than how much money they place in their pockets. If only their were more proud companies out there. Their goal is to create everyone tee that no one wants to go without leaving the fashion world changed. They know that one size or style does not fit all and creates tees for every family member of the family. So while buying that summer wardrobe remember to choose personality and style and choose heavy tees.

Buy: You can buy Heavy tees by locating a store at this link here
or by visiting online here

Miracle Blanket Review

As a young mother I had very little idea of what it would mean to be a mommy. Although I thought I had it all planned out someone should of warned me. My little baby suffered from colic which made the event even more traumatic. I only wish that I had the miracle blanket when I needed it with my first baby.

Some of the best reasons you should try a Miracle Blanket for your little one are:

  • The Miracle Blanket helps stop Colic (Guaranteed)

  • The Miracle Blanket helps fussy babies to sleep better (great for baby and parents)

  • The Miracle Blanket helps ease fussiness for any baby (once again great for baby and parents)

  • The Miracle Blanket helps contain baby hands so that accidental face scratches are eliminated. I know that with my grand baby those sharp little nails would cut her precious little face whenever she would flap them around

  • The Miracle Blankets are soft and comfortable because they are made up of 100% high quality cotton

  • Miracle Blanket helps babies to sleep on their backs which is great because it is the safest way to avoid SIDS

  • Miracle Blankets are great for breast feeding because you no longer have to control little hands while teaching the little one to feed

  • The miracle Blanket fits all babies to 4 months

No need to worry about the Miracle Blanket wearing out or growing worn because it has a 100% guarantee. There are no No Knots, Buttons, Straps, Velcro,Snaps, Zippers or other closures located on the Miracle Blanket.

For years we have known that swaddling a baby is the best for the little ones. The Miracle Blanket has been recommended to new moms by several great pediatricians. Swaddling an infant allows the infant to feel secure which in turns allows them to sleep for longer periods of time without being fussy. Then the reason would be why do many still not swaddle? I know for me it was keeping that blanket in a correct manner to hold the infant but my granddaughter was nearly 10 lbs when born and receiving blankets did not wrap around her for long. For all the reasons not to there is a great idea why we should it is the Miracle Blanket. The Miracle Blanket is developed to easily swaddle your little baby. What could be better? So whether you are expecting a bundle of joy , know someone who is, or need a great baby shower gift the Miracle Blanket is a wonderful thing to have.

Buy: There are many stores located in the U.S. which carry the Miracle Blanket and you can use the great store finder on their website here to locate a store near you. You can also order the Miracle Blanket online from their website here.


This week I have a grateful heart for the family that I have. I am so glad that I have teens who are willing to give up their weekend to attend a christian youth convention. I am also glad that there are Christian Conventions that draw in the attention of these young people. These great people who give up their time to teach the young people (a total of 8,500). Thank You Lord for putting the love of youth on the hearts of Adults that can use their talents and experiences to touch the hearts of the young.
I am also thankful for my husband who stayed at home to take care of the home front. My granddaughter came down sick and he took over the grandmother duties. I am so glad that I met and married a man like him.
The greatness of all that surrounds me is enormous and my heart is very grateful. Very grateful for the people I meet in real life as well as those I know through blogging. Thank God that my life has been touched by so many great people

Monday Musings

Since coming back from the Dare to Share convention with my youth I would love to share some Christian qoutes that help explore thoughts that I think may be on minds of youth;

Experience tells me that people's hearts are seldom changed if they are not changed when young. Seldom indeed are men converted when they are old. Habits have deep roots. Once sin is allowed to settle in your heart, it will not be turned out at your bidding. Custom becomes second nature, and its chains are not easily broken.

Pride) comes from not knowing yourself and the world. The older you grow, and the more you see, the less reason you will find for being proud. Ignorance and inexperience are the pedestal of pride; once the pedestal is removed – pride will soon come down.

J.C. Ryle
Thoughts for Young Men.

There are people in Heaven that God loves, and there are people in Hell that God loves.

~ Jesse Davidson

the midst of the suffocating self-love of our modern and postmodern culture, the Bible is clear that our real hunger is to know the one true God revealed in its pages. Only in doing so will we satisfy our cravings for security (faith), find the purpose for which we exist (hope), and be able to live free from slavery to self (love).

At the well

This is my first time in participating in this meme but must say that the reason I am participating is because it seems so right to do so;

todays question

Discussion Questions:
~Who or what is “most high” in your mind and heart today?
~Is it the Most High, or someone or something else?

I must say that coming home from the dare to share program has truly given me a chance to look at things differently. Each year we travel to the program and each year we come back with our minds fixed on our God, our hearts more in love with God, and the ability to fight the right battle even stronger than before. Oh to see the Lord Jesus one day in heaven is our goal. Til we reach that goal our earthly goal is to spread the word about his greatness and how much he can take care of us. We may face trials, troubles as anyone else but I can not imagine not being able to be able to talk to Jesus as we travel through life. So to me he is my highest and my eyes are upon him.
