Fisher Price Laugh & Learn Learning Table Product Review:

Annaliese is almost 5 months old and fell in LOVE with the Fischer Price Laugh & Learn learning table the moment I took it out of the box. This was the first real “toy” that she has been able to play with and I am super happy that it worked well with her.

MMMMM….It feels soooo GOOD!

Yes…I did mean for that to come across rather raunchy…sorry!

I know I was being completely silly and WRONG a few minutes ago. During a conversation with one of my favorite bloggers, Dawn from Delectably Dawn, I kind of sort of maybe used a (what I thought was) new word!!

Ready for some back story?!?Here is our little conversation from earlier…  Continue reading “MMMMM….It feels soooo GOOD!”

Sit Around Saturday: Making Our Life Matter

First, I would like to apologize for my absence the past few days. I have not been doing much on my blog due to a friend losing their child. Although it wasn’t family that I lost…it has hit me pretty hard. I just keep looking at my girls and I can honestly say I don’t think I ever want to let go of them now. (Not that I did before…but I may be in psycho mode now.)  I appreciate you guys being so understanding..I have had Jen’s Sit Around questions for a while now and just haven’t been able to write my “fun” parts. I hope this isn’t lacking and that you guys enjoy it 🙂
So…IT’S SATURDAY AGAIN!! How totally awesome! Saturday means it is time for us to get to know another amazing blogger!
This week we are sitting around with Jen from Making Our Life Matter.

Guest Post: “Miracle of Belief: The Story of a Six-Year-Old Heart Hero”

Amazon Affiliate Disclosure

I was asked to be a part of sharing and promoting this amazing story and giveaway. Those of you that know me personally or have kept up on Facebook know that recently a friend of mine went through something that I honestly don’t understand and would never wish upon anyone. They lost their 2 1/2 year old son to a brain tumor…a tumor that they didn’t even know existed until the day before his passing.

So when I was asked to participate in this I just couldn’t help but say yes. I hope that the coping techniques and determination in this story can help people that are going through similar situations.

And now for a few words from Lisa (Guest poster):
