ZEVIA is all-natural, has zero calories, zero net carbs, zero fat, and little or no sodium (depending on flavor).

My favorite is a toss between the ginger ale and the ginger root beer.  I even let Jakobi try the orange and lemon-lime because there is no sugar and no caffeine in these two sodas.  ZEVIA is made with Stevia, an all-natural sweetener.

Cutely Couture sent me the cutest Valentine’s Day chocolate box charm.  It made the perfect addition to my mom’s purse.  She was always having a hard time finding which end of her purse to open (which zipper).  So, she just popped it on with a key chain loop and now she has not only an easy way to open her purse, but a reminder of how much I love her. The giveaway portion of this post has been removed and you can find the winner on the winner’s wall.

Valentine’s Day Pillow Pet Luv Pup or Luv Kitty

Jakobi and Mason are sharing their love by sharing their Luv Pup from Pillow Pets.  They are so soft and Mason just snuggles right up to his (theirs).  It was originally chosen for Mason; however, Jakobi liked it so much, he decided to share it!

Pillow PetsTM Brand Limited Edition Loveable Animals Introduced
in Time for Valentine’s Day
Love is truly a plush puppy (or cuddly cat) this Valentine’s Day
Oceanside, Calif., January 25, 2011 – Valentine’s Day is no time to play coy. Wear your heart on your sleeve – or your nose or belly as is the case with the new Pillow Pets™ brand Valentine’s pets from CJ Products, LLC. The manufacturers of Pillow Pets™ plush foldable stuffed animals today announced the release of two special edition products for Valentine’s Day – Luv Pup and Luv Kitty.
Pillow Pets™ brand products were among the most popular gift items for children this past holiday season. Imagine the joy from the children in your life when they receive a limited edition red dog with a big heart for a nose or a cozy red cat with a belly covered in hearts.
“Nothing says ‘I love you’ like a soft, snuggly Pillow Pets plush folding stuffed animal” said Jennifer Telfer, CJ Products’ CEO. “Our limited edition pets, like Luv Pup and Luv Kitty, are particularly special because they’re only available at certain times of year and we only make a certain number of them. With our special holiday series, we’re actually seeing that many adults, in addition to getting Pillow Pets™ for their kids, are also buying the limited edition items for their own collections.”
Made of ultra-soft chenille, Pillow Pets plush foldable stuffed animals are much more than a stuffed animal. With a strap that closes underneath to transform the pillow into a friendly pet, they are an ideal travel pal, naptime buddy and all-around cuddly friend.Pillow Pets plush foldable stuffed animals are available in jungle animals, farm critters and sea creatures – 36 different animals to choose from – and are just one part of the Pillow Pets family of products, which also includes books, blankets, slippers, and games.

The plush foldable stuffed animals are manufactured and distributed by CJ Products, LLC, and Ontel Products Corporation and are available for sale nationwide at retailers such as Walmart, Target, Walgreens, Kohl’s, Toys R Us, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Rite Aid, Kmart, Sears, JC Penney, Kroger, Hallmark, mall kiosks and specialty stores as well as online.

Bummas Wipes

0
Bummas cloth wipes are great for cloth diaper users.  It makes it so easy to be able to just throw the wipe in the diaper then into the wash.  You can make your own baby wash with this recipe.  Bummas are even great for disposable diaper wearers and this routine is suggested:
Grab a Bumma cloth wipe before opening the diaper. Sneak “attacks” are frequent and will happen the second you open the diaper! Place the Bumma over the privates while tending to the other parts.
One Bumma will soak up an entire pee. Clean up baby with a regular wipe or wet a Bumma and clean up sensitive skin. Use another Bumma to thoroughly dry baby off.  Re-diaper. If the cover Bumma gets soaked rinse it off and throw it in the wash. The payoff- a dry bum, no diaper rash, and no surprise squirts. Save money on diapers, and save by not having to buy powder, and ointment.
I find that when I started using Bummas, my diaper routine became a lot easier and more eco-friendly. I even folded them up and put them up and put them in an old wipes container for super easy use.  I opened up the wipes and mimicked how they were laid in and threaded them through the top.  Now I have reusable pop-up wipes.  You can also pop these wipes in your diaper bag, use them for messy feedings, or have them handy for just about anything.  I love these wipes.  The giveaway portion of this post has been removed and you can find the winner on the winner’s wall.

Kit-Cat Clock Discount

The Kit Cat clock reminds me of my childhood.  This company has been established since the 1930.  A Kit-Cat clock is bought every three minutes.  We had one hanging around the house for most of it!  He moved from room to room wagging his tail and looking around the room with his tick-tock swish swish sound.  I hung my Kit-Cat clock in my kitchen, a very central area, so I could hear that reminiscent soothing sound throughout the day.  You can see the movements the clock makes at the Black Kit-Cat Classic Page.

Surf Showstopper Wrist Bag

0

The beach has to be one of the most difficult places to find a suitable bag for. Whether you’re a guy or girl, no swimsuit offers enough secure pockets to bring along your valuables.

The Surf Showstopper offers a stylish, safe, convenient bag option for men and women when spending a day at the beach or going surfing. The outer material is water repellant and durable enough for the seaside environment, and the underside is constructed of a “toweling” material that absorbs perspiration while working out. The strap is made of durable velcro with a secure fastener.
Inside, a large pouch can hold an iPhone or mp3 player, while a zippered compartment can hold an I.D., credit card, or cash. There is also an outer zippered pocket for your keys or any other valuable that you need quick access to.
The inner compartments are kept secure with a large zippered enclosure, which also features a lip to tuck the zipper away so that it doesn’t jangle while jogging or walking.
If you’re in search of a bag for the beach that is convenient and stylish, the Surf Showstopper is the perfect choice!
If enter the code SURF when checking out, you will receive 10% off their entire order, plus FREE INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING store-wide.
I live in Florida near the beach.  So, this is a perfect answer to the problem of where do I put all my stuff.  I hate leaving my things laying out when I go for a walk on the beach.  I am always afraid they will get stolen.  This has also been a great item when I want to go to the park with my kids down the street and not carry a purse.  The Surf Showstopper really is a great find!

Boodle Bottoms

0
When I started to cloth diaper my boys, I came in to the same problem the owners of Boodle Bottoms did.  I could not find the pants to fit my son.  I was buying them (or handing them down) in 6 months ahead of where he was in disposables.  I knew there had to be a better way.  So, I searched for cloth diaper clothes, and I found the answer-Boodle Bottoms.  I just love the story about how Boodle Bottoms got started.
When my own Boodle Bottoms arrived for Mason, they fit so perfect around his big ol’ cloth diaper.  I was surprised they even fit nicely around his nite-time diapers, and the Boodle Bottoms are his size.

Boodle Bottoms pants were designed specifically to fit cloth diapered babies.  We manufacture, package, label and ship our pants in the most eco-friendly manner possible.  All fabric is American made and 100% organic, then sewn in the USA by fairly paid workers.  Our pants are shipped in reusable cotton bags, also made in the USA, with recycled hang tags.  Then we offset the carbon footprint of our shipments while funding renewable energy research.”

Tropical Traditions Palm Shortening

0

Are you a baker?  Tropical Traditions Palm Shortening is awesome for baking.  You can substitute the butter, oils, and shortening when baking and deep frying for a healthier alternative. Check out my truffle recipe using Tropical Tradition products and the Tropical Traditions Recipe site.
“Palm shortening is derived from palm oil (read aboutVirgin Palm Oil here). In its natural state, palm oil is a mixture of saturated and unsaturated fatty acids, with most of the unsaturated fat being monounsaturated fat. Palm shortening is palm oil that has some of its unsaturated fats removed, giving it a very firm texture, and high melting point. The melting point of our Organic Palm Shortening is 97 degrees F., making it very shelf stable. It is NOT hydrogenised, and contains NO trans fats! It is great for deep-fat frying and baking, and is not prone to rancidity. Since it has been separated from some of the unsaturated portion of the oil, it is colorless and odorless, and will not affect the taste of foods like Virgin Palm Oil does”

Sound-Beginnings Baby Belly Music Service

0

Sound Beginnings sent me a Sound Beginnings Pre-Natal Sound Delivery Device, which is a comfortable nylon/lycra band with built-in high quality speakers that allow expectant parents to play music, voice or soothing sounds using any MP3 player.  I had one of my friends try it out.  When she received it she was thrilled of the belly band aspect of it.  All pregnant women welcome a little extra added support, and this support comes with the BEST bonus.  After she dug out her MP3 player she was able to play her unborn son, her and her husbands favorite music.  She was even able to call relatives not able to physically be here to get a recording so her baby could “meet” them.  I think this is a great idea for partners who are estranged during the pregnancy.  It will still allow that special closeness of hearing their voice in the womb.  Check out the related research.  You can win your own Sound-Beginnings by telling me what you would record and play back for your baby.The giveaway portion of this post has been removed and you can find the winner on the winner’s wall.

Baby Einstein Discovery Kit

0
My kids love Baby Einstein!  When our Discovery Kit came, Jakobi was very excited and we had to open it immediately.  There was a DVD, a CD, and flash cards.  I put the CD up to play in the car, which we do EVERY TIME we  are in it.  The DVD went  in the player and we opened the flash cards to play with along the movie.  It was really neat.  Jakobi was able to identify the different animals and habitats relating them to the flash cards.  By the end of the movie, he had learned several new animal names and where they lived.  Then we played it again, and again, and again…Get the picture.  Jakobi now has a new Favorite DVD.  He even barricades the living area so Mason will not ruin the order of his cards.  Mason, of course, is very interested in everything Jakobi is doing so it is nice that the different toys and scenes on the movie keep Mason occupied.  Here is some great information on the different Discovery Kits.The giveaway portion of this post has been removed and you can find the winner on the winner’s wall.
