Baby! Baby! Giveaway 8!

Here is another great Baby! Baby! giveaway and review from Mud Pies and Tiaras.
I recently had the opportunity to review some items from Chronicle Books. They offer books for every age and from every genre. I was sent "Pregnancy Planner Essential Advice for Moms-to-Be" , "The Fertility Journal", and the Julius! Touch-and-Feel Stroller Cards. The "Fertility Journal" is a day by day guide to getting pregnant. The book includes a section called "Fertility Basics". It covers ways to turbo charge your fertility, how to monitor your cycle, and how stopping different types contraception affects conception. They even include a section called "motherhood after miscarriage", which I appreciated. There's a year's worth of journal space to track your trying to conceive journey. Each week includes facts and tips, along with a space to answer certain questions. For women who need a little help getting pregnant, there's a section about infertility and a calendar to record all doctor's appointments and medications. I thought this book was laid out really well and is a great way to record your journey. Unfortunately, getting pregnant isn't always easy and this journal helps guide you and keep you organized.    The "Pregnancy Planner" is great! It's divided into 5 sections: Countdown, Gear, Health, Birth Day, and Homecoming. The countdown has a page for each week from 5 to 40. There's a space to jot down feelings or syptoms as well information and facts pertaining to that time. even after 5 kids, I still found facts that I didn't know. The gear section gives you tips about all the things you'll need as well as the things that aren't so necessary. The health section explains some of the things your body does during pregnancy. The birth day section gives you tips about what to take to the hospital and has a place to record contractions. and lastly, the homecoming section talks about what happens to your body after delivery. That's something that's not always discussed. This planner is not only funtional but also informative. I really enjoyed reading all the tips it offered.   Chronicle Books offers lots of neat things, including the Julius Touch and Fell Stroller cards I received. they are super cute and I know my little one will love playing with them!

#Cozycatfurniture Growing up Kitty with Ginger

  It has been so many years since we have had a kitten around the house I think I had forgotten just how active and amazing they are! I am sure many of you have seen me talk about Ginger our baby. She is FeLV positive, and just days short of her 7 month birthday. We also have 2 other boys with are getting up there in age. Thomas has always been a scratcher and I admit I had never thought about getting a kitty tree before this. Earlier in the month a great opportunity to review the Kitty Condo Tree from   Cozy Cat Furniture came about I thought oh great Ginger will have a place to nap, play, learn, and most importantly SCRATCH!      It Arrived in a box which I have to admit scared me a bit at first, it was much small then I thought.....was the tree smaller....was this one of those "some adult assembly required" items? Luckily it was easy to put together and came out so much sturdier then I had expected.  Even before we could give the word go Ginger was eager to play a

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need: 2 Cups of Sugar 2 Cups of Water 1 Package Sugar Free Jello A candy Thermometer Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
