Sleepy Sunday!

Today has been a very sleepy day in our house, Hubby left for work at 7am like always and LO stayed in bed till 8am. I brought him into our bed and gave him his milk and dry cereal and I curled back up and fell back asleep while he watched spongebob! Boy what would i do with out the cartoons he loves? LOL. He woke me up maybe 45 mins later needing to go potty! He went and as did I, and we both just layed there in bed and watched tv. We both went back to sleep around 1pm and woke up around 3pm. ( I love sleepy days) Again awake we eat some lunch/dinner and just spend time together! He now has mommy and daddys room destroyed from playing with my shoes, and his toys! It is now almost 8pm and Daddy just walked in the door, Almost bedtime for LO. Daddy gets the honor of giving him a bath and putting him to bed tonight because I have been battling a PMS headache ALL day! :( 
 The Joys of womanhood! haha. Oh well! Hopefully in the next year we can TTC again and I wont have to worry about BC or PMS for awhile! Thats another reason I want another baby. And I am looking forward to a VBAC and Breastfeeding a baby again.! Is it bad that I constantly think about another baby because i want to breastfeed again!? I just miss it so much! If i could relactate now I would but Hubby wants me on BC so it makes it impossible to get my full supply going again!. 
Also. I have a question for you all: Is it okay to start Breastfeeding your LO #1 again after LO#2 is born? Has anyone ever done this and succeeded? Tandum breastfeed a (going to be almost 3 if we try again soon) and a newborn? After not breastfeeding the LO#1 for almost 2 years?

Mami And Papis Gift Certificate Giveaway!

I found this great site called Mami's & Papi's that has some awesome family morals and amazing customer service and best of all Free shipping ANYWHERE! Mami's & Papi's is a christian family, Papi is an active duty member of the USA military and Mami is a WAHM of 3 (maybe 4 kids soon)!   I contacted Mami's & Papi's to see if they were willing to sponsor a giveaway and they said yes. They have so graciously offered $10 store credit to one lucky person! Now I don't know about you but that $10 would be great toward a purchase of a diaper, some Rockin Green soap or so many other things that they carry in their shop!

A little about the family:
 We are a truly blessed husband and wife team raising three wonderful children.  "Papi" is a 13 year active duty member of our amazing United States Military. He was raised in San Antonio, Texas and joined the United States Marine Corps straight out of high school. He is an AMAZING father and faithful, loving husband
"Mami" is the glue that holds the whole thing from falling apart. She was raised a little of everywhere but her home is Mayfield, Kentucky. She's a "farm" girl who knows the value of hard work and dedication. After high school, college, and working outside the home she knew that all she wanted to be was a mother and a great wife!!  
A little about the store:
Why start "Mami's & Papi's" ?
"Papi" was recently injured during military training and it "shook up" the reality that we needed to be financially secure and ready for the future. Military retirement is less than seven years away and we want to prepare NOW. We wanted to create something we love and believe in and that we could pass to our children.  We also wanted to create a job that would allow "Papi" to work daily with his injury. Our love for Eco-friendly items, frugalness, and family led us to create  "Mami's & Papi's" cloth diapering resource & MORE. 
Our children... Allysium (8), Antonio (4), and Alejandro (3 months) are our reason for setting long term goals. We want them to learn the value of hard work and respect for others. 
We are a christian family, military family, and hard-working family!  We hope "Mami's & Papi's shows this in every way. Our website is very simple and we have chosen it to be this way. Instead of paying for graphics and "fancy" we are using that money to bring in more inventory and keep prices low. We know families do not have a lot of time with working, school, and other daily activities. We want you to be able to find what you need, get the resources to make great choices, and have an easy purchase transaction. 
We may not be "flashy" but we will give you our very best customer service and use our time the wisest way possible.
We hope you come back and send your family and friends our way.
With much appreciation...........
Mami & Papi

The Past week

This past week has been nothing but STRESS! I am very down right now because I found out that I may not be starting college this fall due to some communication errors with the school on deadlines! I am very upset because i feel like i deserve this because i stay at home with my darling son, don't get me wrong i LOVE it and i LOVE my son but i never get mommy time and I feel like i need my mommy time. Unlike many I want my mommy time to be bettering my education! Unfortunately I lack the the $1200 dollars to start until my financial aid kicks in, in 2 weeks! They will refund me the money once the financial aid does get finished processing, and if i cant get the money which there's NO way possible that i will come up with that kind of money as a SAHM, I can wait and take the late start classes but there is no guarantee that there will be any openings. This is the cause for my stress and slight depression. On a better note I always have my son to brighten my days! Any advice from you mamas who struggle with going back to school and or getting your mommy "Me" time? Because I know I do! Thanks for letting me rant! I really needed it!
My favorite 2 men in my life!

Been Sick and The new addition to our world

So My son and myself have been sick this past week and a half and Let me tell you, it has sucked. He had to go to his Nana's till i got the energy to care for him like he needed to be taken care of. We are both still sick with a runny and stuffy nose which trying to catch him to wipe away the boogies is oh so much fun! Now his poor Nana is sick with the same thing we had. So now she is getting the R&R she needs.
                                              My Handsome Little Man 19 months old Tomorrow!
                                              Me and my Little man in our Babyhawk!

On a better note My friend Tara and her partner had their baby yesterday! She is beautiful! 6 days over due but beautiful!

Baltic Amber Teething Necklace Review and Giveaway

I contacted Rachel From Inspired by Finn and asked to review one of her Baltic Amber necklaces for my terrible Migraines, I had bought one from a not so reputable dealer and I had given up on getting my Migraines to subside. I had heard so much about Inspired By Finn I had to find out for myself and Im glad to say that is has helped. I have been wearing the necklace she sent me for about 3 weeks and only 1 headache. And that was due to not eating. I Love the style and colors of the necklace sent to me. The other one I had, had darker beads and it is a known fact that the darker beads dont work as well as the lighter ones. 

I have nothing bad to say about this necklace! My son also has one for his teething and let me tell you he is a whole different baby! He is working on cutting 4 molars with little to no pain or fussiness.  

This is My Necklace! I LOVE IT! And its so cute right? I went from having Migraines several times a day to just the one in 3 weeks! Now that is saying something! Now please remember Baltic amber doesnt work for everyone so your results may vary!

Here's a little info about Baltic amber from Inspired By Finn's Site:
Our Baltic Amber jewelry is a unique piece of history…The amber beads are fossils from an ancient forest which existed tens of millions of years ago.

Baltic amber is not a stone, but a fossilized tree resin.
Historically, Baltic Amber has been used in Europe as a natural and traditional remedy and curative for many ailments for centuries. Long ago it was considered one of the leading ‘medicines’ of its time. Baltic Amber is the most esteemed amber in the world, and the healing qualities of Baltic Amber make it unlike any other type of amber found in the world.
When baltic amber is worn on the skin, the skin’s warmth releases trace amounts of healing oils from the amber. These oils contain succinic acid and are absorbed into the skin.
Baltic Amber has some of the highest concentrations of Succinic Acid found in nature, and this is what makes it so special. Succinic Acid is a natural component of plant and animal tissues, and it's presence in the human body is beneficial in many ways.

How can baltic amber help us?
Baltic amber contains analgesic properties and helps take the edge off of many types of discomfort associated with dental issues, headaches, joint pain, etc.
  • Strengthens the body's immune system -
In many different and subtle ways, succinic acid helps boost the body's own natural healing ability and immune system.
  • Restoring Energy –
The human body naturally produces succinic acid. The salt of succinic acid (succinate) is one of the most active substances in the processes of cellular respiration and intercellular energy creation. Succinic acid restores oxygen and energy supply to depleted cells and helps the body return to a normal, functioning state.
Succinate is a raw material and a catalyst in the Krebs Cycle which is one of our main sources of energy. During the Krebs Cycle carbohydrates, fats, and proteins are metabolized for energy.
  • Maintaining Wellness -
When the human body reacts to stress, the body’s cells begin to use oxygen more quickly. Oxygen plays a central role in the intercellular creation of energy, and a lack of oxygen can result in feeling lethargic.
Oxygen is alkaline-forming in the blood and maintaining a slightly alkaline blood ph helps keep us healthy. Whenever the body functions in a state of low oxygen, it is much more susceptible to illness.
  • To help break a cycle of (chronic) inflammation -
Where chronic inflammation is present, disease lurks.
When the body’s cells are chronically inflamed the human body’s immune system response is to increase production of free radicals. Chronic overproduction of free radicals results in inflammatory-related disease. Chronic inflammation is a common denominator of many seemingly unrelated diseases.
While wearing a piece or two of baltic amber jewelry may not cure all that may ail you, it has been a proven benefit to many!

           BUY ONE:
Baltic Amber Necklaces At Inspired By Finn are priced from $15.75 and up depending upon the price! Rachel is also allowing you to get 20% - 25% off your purchase of anything in her shop! But before you use the codes please do the following

Rockin Green Shake It Up Pail Freshner Review and GIVEAWAY!!!!!!!

I contacted the amazing Kim from Rockin Green and asked to review some of her pail freshener since I already use her soap and I am in LOVE LOVE LOVE with it, I wanted to try the pail freshener because we dont own a "Pail" for our dirties just a laundry basket. Things can get really stinkie since we cant wash every other day like we used to, we are down to once a week or maybe twice a week, Since my darling MIL sold the washer and dryer we now have to use other family members washers and dryers till we can get money to buy a set. :( BOO 
Well anyways I have been using the pail freshener for about 2 weeks and I am happy to say I LOVE LOVE LOVE it just like the Laundry soap! Yet ANOTHER great product from the AMAZING Kimberly! I cant wait to see what other concoctions she is going to have in the future! This also helps for our wetbag that we travel with! We went to the zoo and had no stinkies! Yay

I was sent the Lavender Mint Revival and it smells divine! I can only imagine how great the others smell. We went from some HORRIBLE smells at laundry time because they sat for so long but now we have no smell after them sitting for days. I will continue to buy the shake it up in the future, even though I wont need to for a long while because the bottle is to big! Which is another plus! 

Here is a little info about the pail freshener from the site:
Does your diaper pail or wetbag smell like....a diaper pail? Then freshen things up the Rockin' Green way with our all natural pail freshner. You get 8 ounces of freshner in our ultra-cool shaker bottle. Just sprinkle a little in the pail when things start to get "grungy."
Best of all- it works great in conjunction with the Rockin' Green detergent, so use both to keep your diapers and home smelling AMAZING!

Likes: Everything, The scent, the size, how well it works! I Love this product and the company, Need i say more? 

Dislikes: The only thing I dislike about the product i received was the mail man didnt handle it well and part of the plastic lid cracked! Not to much to dislike! 

Rating: 100 out of 10!!! Seriously! 

                                                           BUY IT!
Buy one, or two or three! Either way you NEED this product. You can find it here: Pail Freshner

                                                           WIN IT!
OR you could WIN one! Who wouldnt want to win something right? I have said it before and I will continue to say it, The amazing Kimbery has allowed me to give away not 1, not 2 but 3 pail freshners to 3 winners of the winners choice! Please leave email addy in comment if i cant contact you, you wont know you won! And please a seperate comment per entry otherwise you wont have the higher chances of winning!
