Mommy and Me Time

A while back I found this neat paper that has questions to ask your child. You can record their answers and see how they change every month, year, etc. I don't know how often I will do it but it has been neat to see the answers I get! Today my oldest and I were the only ones up for nap time which seems to NEVER happen anymore. My little boy, only being one, is the only one that is happy to try and take a nap! Here are her answers :)

Sick Time

How do you know you have a geeky family? When they are sick, they play video games of course!

Not even 4 and all she wants to do is play her Dora game on the Wii! Daddy took her to the doctor and we don't know if its a virus or bacterial infection so she is on antibiotics and we will see how see gets in the next day or two. If she gets better, then we know if (or should I say WHEN!) anyone else gets sick if its the waiting game or going to the doctor. You could tell that she's not feeling well though poor thing :( BAD runny nose (she keeps saying she has a bloody nose!) coughing, a slight fever and pale. I am hoping she feels MUCH better tomorrow! I don't like my kiddos being sick!

Song of the day: Mah Na Mah Na by the Muppets I totally and completely blame this on their daddy! He was playing it the other day and showed it to them and this is all they want to see and hear! It is getting a bit annoying! I know they will move on to something else soon like always, but I do find it interesting how the muppets are moving on to a whole new generation!

Ozeri Precision Pro II Digital Bathroom Scale Review

Two weeks ago I won a Ozeri Precision Pro II Digital Bathroom Scale! I was so happy that I won it because we just have a manual scale. The kids think its fun to jump on it so of course that means it is now broken! I was about to buy one when I saw this giveaway and decided to see if I would win one and sure enough I did!!!

It has some great features! It has a blue backlit LCD screen with big digits to make it easier to read. It also has InstOn technology so it captures the weight right when you step on instead of having to tap and wait. It also will weigh up to 440 lbs!!! I have hardly ever seen a scale that will weigh over 300 lbs!

It also has an oversized platform with impact resistant tempered glass. When I first got it out, I was surprised of its size! It is more of a rectangle than a square like most scales. Personally, I love this so much better! I don't feel like I am falling off while I am weighing myself!!

So far, I am in love with it! I am sure this will help motivate me even more with my weight loss journey and give me far better results than my manual scale!

If you are looking to buy a scale, check out the Ozeri Precision Pro II Digital Bathroom Scale on amazon.com! Right now it is on sale for $28.65 down from original price of $69.99!!

*Disclaimer: I won this product through a giveaway that I entered. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Week Winnings November 21-27

So, I have decided that I am going to try and win all my Christmas gifts for next year from giveaways I find online. I know this will be a hard task but I am trying! I don't even know how many I have entered lately and just kind of zone out when I do it. Great use of nap time to totally veg out. Well, I decided I would start posting what I win every week :)

Last week was a great week for me for winning! I won:

  • 2 Serifono Double Wall 12 oz beverage tumblers
  • The Littlest Angel DVD
  • Free coupon for Batter Blaster
  • Digital Photography Manual
  • Celtic Complextion Travel kit
I am very excited to receive all of these items soon and try them out! I figure I will do reviews on them too so others can see what they are and how well they work! I am excited to finally get my blog going and hopefully have you all enjoy!
