I Need New Shoes

I'm really in need of new shoes. My problems are:

A) They are expensive
B) I'm always with the kids
C) I can't find any that I like

So I found some that I liked today:

The brand name is Alegria. I've never heard of that kind of shoe before. It's a Canadian company. I really like to try on shoes before buying them. My Organized Chaos is hosting a giveaway for one winner to win any pair of shoes from them.

Silk Milk

I'm trying to not drink as much cows milk now a days. I've never been a huge milk person. I've noticed a difference in my tummy. By making my own juice and drinking alternative milks I have less tummy issues.

New Age Mama is hosing a giveaway to two lucky winners. They are going to receive a Silk Chico Bag and a coupon for a free half gallon of Silk. This is one type of milk that my boy's like! It tastes good on cereal too!

Go Outback Tonight

I love the Outback Steak House! They have good food, and wonderful selection! Jolly Mom is hosting a great giveaway for one winner to win $90 of coupons for Outback Steak House!

If I win, I might pick this to eat:

I've Been Trying to Do More Fun Projects With My Kids

Mica {my oldest} is at the age where he likes to do arts and crafts. He'll be 6 in August. He's super smart, but so very selective. My husband tried planting seedlings in egg cartons with Mica's help. It ended with frustration because Mica would not listen to instruction. I think a big key thing with Mica is to try doing things with him during the day {when he's not tired}. It's also good to have Isaak {which is almost 3} out of the way.

I do have to say that I enjoy both kid's help in the kitchen. They take turns dumping in ingredients.

I'd like to give the whole gardening thing another try! Go Graham Go is hosting a great giveaway! Two Growums Kits are being given away! It's a garden kit for kids! My only problem would be what to choose!

Their Herb Garden Includes:

Their Stir Fry Garden Includes:

Their Taco Garden Includes:

They have even more choices! We've planted some things already. We have green onions, potatoes, oregano, basil, fennel, tomatoes, peppers, strawberry plant and blueberry plant. We want to learn how to can, and are going to harvest as much as possible this year.

Bye By Germs!

I'm super excited to learn that there is a touchless soap dispenser! I never knew that there were one you can buy for your home!

In the past, we've had some major illnesses at our house. My oldest had a staph infection in his neck when he was 7 months, my youngest had meningitis when he was 2 month and my husband had influenza a long while back. I'm a teacher, and get a lot of colds.

When giving my own kids home IV antibiotics, I learned how important it is to be germ free.

Musing Maine-iac is giving away 1 Lysol Hands Free Soap Dispenser!

Breville Juicer Giveaway!

We are in love with our juicer. We use it at least 3 times a week. Isaak {our almost 3 year old} loves making juice.

My favorite juice that we've made so far is: 4 Kiwis, 2 small Cucumbers or 1 large one and 4 Pears (of any variety). We add water. It's enough for 4 people. The extra rubbege is composted. I read that you can use it in muffins or cakes.

If I win, I'm sharing one of the juicers with my younger sister. Her oldest son LOVES to make juice when he's over at our house!

Pretzel Crisps with Hummus Rocks!

I love pretzel crisps. They are so good with hummus on them! I buy them at Costco almost every time I go there. I don't go all that often. Our whole family gets into them.

I Love the Look of Clogs


I like being outdoors. There is something about the sunshine that just adds happiness into my life. It's also great getting exercise. The only problem is my annoying allergies. I love both of the clogs pictured! They can be washed much easier then other shoes.

You can win a pair of Jollys Garden Clogs at New Age Mama.

We Cook in the Majority of the Time!

We really do not go out to eat often. Many of the places are unhealthy.

My husband and I can cook, which is great. One thing that we do go through fast is silverware. Especially when my husband is home during the week. He watches two additional kiddo's.

My Organized Chaos is giving away a 20 piece set of silverware from Knork!

Handmade is Best

I love most all things handmade! I grew up with a father that is an artist, I went to two art schools and my husband is an artist. Needless to say, art is in my blood.

One thing that I'm super interested in is handmade interments!

New Age Mama is hosting a great giveaway for a $50 gift certificate to Novica. I love their drums! Novica has more then just interments. Their whole store is artist made things.
