In the next week...or two

Next week there are a few major holidays coming. One is Valentines day during the week of Love (Feb 10-16; hence the change in the blog) the other is Presidents day on the 18th and Love your Pet day (Feb. 20th). I think that Love your Pet day is every day, however Hallmark has not cornered that market yet so truly pet owners own that day.



During the Week Of Love and Love Your Pet Day, I will have the opportunity to review and give away the brand new Jim Henson's Pajanimals DVD "Pajanimals Playdate" By the Jim Henson Company. Yes the same that can be found on Sprout TV (online)! The DVD is on sale now and available at NCircle Entertainment and Amazon (It's only $9.99 USD). So stay tuned and I will leave you with a song from The PaJanimals themselves.

For my Blog Birthday - An MLB Moby Wrap! - UPDATED


San Francisco Giants Black (Mobywrap.com)
I have been thinking about what to give readers for my blog birthday and now I know what to give one lucky reader. An MLB Moby Wrap of their chosen team!

This fits perfectly with my Blog Anniversary because the Major League Baseball All Star Break happens to be the same week!

***Details - Moby Wrap WILL BE sponsoring this giveaway!! Though Major League Baseball will not be sponsoring this giveaway!***

I am doing this because I love two things - BASEBALL and WRAPS!

I will be posting a few stories about my past visits baby wearing at AT&T Park with my oldest Bella and how my experience has changed with my youngest Grace.

Each post will have something to do with Baseball and Wraps whether it be the Moby Wrap or other ones I have used in the past. I will be placing a key word in each post and it will be used in the giveaway as well.

During the week of the All Star Break, July 9-13, I will post my final "Wrap" up posts for my love of Baseball and baby wearing. On my Blog "birthday" Friday, July 13, 2012; I will be posting a Rafflecoptter giveaway for that weekend for one of the awesome MLB wrap of your choice!

Thank you to the fine people at Moby Wrap for giving one away for this Blog-a-bration! And I have worn both of the SF Giants Wraps and just love them!

FAQs -
  1.  What if I don't live in the USA? Its fine! Just make sure you are in an area where Moby can ship to!
  2. What if I don't like baseball? WHAT?? This is also fine, if you love the Moby Wrap show your city pride, every one will think you love baseball!
  3. What if I win, however I have a friend that I won it for? Fine by me, when you get the winning email just let me know a name and address to ship the wrap to!
  4. What if I won and they don't have my favorite team? That is an issue! Right now Moby Wrap has 8 teams on the website. I hope that by the time the All Star Break Week comes around they will have more to chose from. If not, you can always go with the MLB team that is closest to your city. 
  5. Are you, Amanda going to get another MLB Wrap or another item for blogging about this giveaway and Moby Wrap? I am not nor will not receive any prize other than the joy of sending one lucky person their own MLB Moby Wrap. Its my present to you!

Safety First with SafetyBook - Review and Giveaway!

Being a second time mom, you would think I would have the folder with all the manuals and have all of the product cards filled out and sent to the manufacture for the recall notices all completed? Confession, I have with a few products but not all! I know I am a bad mom for not doing this. However, as easy as surfing the Net; Safety Books makes it even easier to have the information at your finger tips.

I plunged in and registered for Safety Book I registered two items at first to check out the site. If you look below here is just an example of what I found out:
There was a re-call notice last year for my car and I didn't get anything from the car company!

This notice is very detailed and a lot of information about the recall
This prompted me to call the dealership and see if my car was effected since I have to drive my kids around town every day and guess what? I took my car into the dealership and they fixed the problem. Now I am a SafetyBook fan for life!

This Memorial Day weekend please stay safe and along with this giveaway of 4 (Four) free lifetime memberships; Safety Book has also generously giving to you a 50% off code to use by May 31st SAFEHOME50 and if you want to try it with out opening your wallet you can register 3 items for free!

**I am writing this as sponsored post from the company. I was given one of the $18 lifetime membership to review the product, however my review along with my words are my own and I would sate just the facts**

A UPrinting way and giveaway!

Some say that the printing press is going out like a vinyl record or VHS tapes. I say no. Yes, Email, Facebook and other online media are replacing some of the way you can talk to your target audience, whither it be a fortune 500 company or to the people next door. However, there is still something good about knowing some one spent the time to make something for you to touch and feel. And that is what UPrinting does. The company is very good about their custom postcard printing.



I am what some people call a snob of printed material. I am very picky when it comes to printing things like postcards, I only want the best card stock, inks and choices especially when it reflects not only on the company making the card, it reflects on me. UPrinting helps with all of that including helping one come up with a design for the artistically impaired. The design feature is great. Its very simple and everything is in plan text so no art degree needed. You can go to their custom postcard printing and get inspired to win postcards of your own in the PunchTab entry box!


Forgot to mention what you would win!


100 pcs. postcards for one (1) winner
5" x 7"
14pt Cardstock Gloss
Front Only Printing
2 Business Days Turnaround
*Free shipping
 *US residents 18 years old and above only


You should assume that I will receive free print products in exchange for the post. Any and all reviews posted are based solely on my own experience and may be atypical. Please practice due diligence in making any related purchase decisions. Interested to hold a giveaway like this? Please sign up here.

Bella VS the Bell Pepper Review and Giveaway

How many times have you told your little one to "Eat your veggies or no treat after dinner"?

I have told that to Bella that many times about one vegetable in particular. Bell Peppers. Yes, Bell Peppers.

She's a good kid when it comes to other vegetables, broccoli, coli-flower, peas and carrots, along with her fruits, blueberries, banana's and oranges. Now you think I'm bragging.

You are probably thinking, 'She doesn't like one vegetable when my kids don't even like any of the ones you've stated above!' I would say that I am proud that my child loves to eat the fruits and veggies, however its a pain when I have to pick out the Bell Peppers because she doesn't like them in a dish of food or not make stuffed Bell Peppers because she refuses to eat everything because of the texture of the vegetable.



When I saw Copy-Kids, a DVD where kids are eating foods like Bell Peppers, Avocado, Apples, Oranges, Raspberries, Broccoli and other yummy foods, I thought it was a good chance to see if Bella would actually try eating Bell Peppers, I didn't expect her to love the vegetable right away, but give it a chance, because I know kids copying kids works.

How? Well, Bella went to a friends birthday party and there were Grapes on the table. Bella loves to eat them, her friend, the birthday girl did not. Her mother remarked for the last few months all she could get her to eat was bread and cheese. Well, Bella went up to the table and started to munch on the Grapes, so much so me and my husband were telling her to slow down and leave some for other people. When the birthday girl saw Bella eating them, she ran up to the table and started to munch on them herself. Her mother was over joyed at the sight and told us that we were welcome to come over and try this with different foods as well.

Copy-Kids are for kids 6 months to 5 years old (however an adult can learn from these kids as well). They feature kids around the same age range and they are super cute! Bella could relate to them as they looked like kids that went to her pre-school. The DVD is USDA approved and added to their Education and Training Materials Database for Pre-School Nutrition (link). The DVD won two children's excellence awards: Dr Toy Best of 2011 and Mother Approved Child Tested (MACT) of 2011.

The DVD total length is 115 minutes and the segments are about 8 minutes each of the foods (12 foods the 6 I mentioned above along with Carrots, Cucumbers, Blueberries, Strawberries and Tomatoes). In the DVD Extras there are out takes of the little ones being themselves and a message from Dr Jay Gordon, with tips on how to establish good eating habits with your little one in mind. I would HIGHLY suggest having the food available to try when seeing the DVD because once they start watching it they would like to do what they see and to be there to enjoy the food with them. Since Bella was having trouble with Bell Peppers I played that segment a lot more than the other segments because that was the vegetable that is the hardest one to have her eat.

How did the DVD work for Bella? See the video below to find out.


Now with a few more tries I think Bella will enjoy Bell Peppers!

Would you like a chance to win a DVD copy? Enter below and good luck!

*Note* I was not paid to do this review and was only given the DVD ($19.95 value) to do this review. My daughter was not forced to eat or say anything she didn't want to do. All Thoughts and videos were completed by myself.

This year is an important year

This year will mark the fourth year I have had this blog. Combined I have probably blogged one third of a year's worth of material. However I have had a few other blogs that would probably make up the loss. This year I hope to do many more things like Reviews, Giveaways and invite you into my life a little more. I have several things I'd like to say and do so stay tuned!

It also marks the fourth year of my marriage! Go figure!
