Melissa & Doug Terrific Twenty List and Giveaway

My kids LOVE Melissa & Doug toys. From shopping carts and pretend food to tunnels and sprinklers Melissa & Doug has toys perfect for so many ages and interests. I was so excited to see that they just released their 2012 Terrific Twenty Holiday Toys and Gifts list.

There's nothing on that list that my kids wouldn't love to have and surprisingly enough, we don't have any of the items on the 2012 list yet! It was so hard to pick which item I would like for my kids to have, but I know the Beeposh Elvis Lion will be a huge hit with both kids.

Would you like a chance to win something from the list? If so, head over to the Melissa & Doug Facebook page, "like" them, and enter to win! You only need to enter once and you will be entered for the entire 20 day giveaway. How simple is that??

Want a chance to win a Beeposh Elvis Lion here? Use the super easy rafflecopter form to enter. There's only one mandatory requirement and that is to simply comment with your favorite pick from the 2012 Terrific Twenty Holiday Toys and Gifts list. All other entries are optional

Nutella Party!

I was so excited when I was chosen to host a MommyParty for Nutella.  When the kit came I was SUPER impressed!  There were so many great things including a HUGE container of Nutella for everyone to try, lots of great recipes, samples for everyone, special spreaders, coupons, and great travel mugs!

A lot of the ladies had already tried Nutella and some were HUGE fans, but others had never even heard of it.  I think this was a great way to spread the word about Nutella how many different ways you can use it.  Most people had never thought about it for breakfast, but after seeing all of the great recipes they realized what a good idea it was!  Everyone knows how important it is to have breakfast, but sometimes it's hard to find something that is quick and easy AND tastes good.  How much easier can spreading a little Nutella on a whole wheat english muffin or toast and pouring a glass of milk be?

I'm really disappointed that I forgot my camera, because I would have loved to at least get a picture of everyone posing with their travel mugs and spreaders ;)  Oh well, that's what pregnancy brain does to me!

I hope all the other hostesses and party attenders had as much fun as we did!

I don't get it...

Why would someone deliberately post/say something SO incredibly hurtful to someone?  I know that on the internet a lot of people suddenly develop the bollocks to say something that they would NEVER say in person but shouldn't that be part of a normal person's internal filter?  Shouldn't you ask yourself before posting "Would I actually say this to the person's face?"

Just something to think about...

Steroid shots and baby bedding

Anyone had steroid shots before to help baby's lungs develop?  I'm 28 weeks and had my first round today (well the first shot, shot two will be tomorrow) and my goodness my hip/back hurts!!!  You know more than usual lol

On a happier note, Lily's baby bedding arrived yesterday!!!  It was a Christmas present from her uncle and we LOVE it!!!  The only thing we're missing is the quilt (I want to hang it up for decoration until she's old enough to use it) and the throw pillow. 

Hayley Nursery Bedding Set

All I need to do is make the decorations for her room and swap it out with David's stuff (he's getting a big boy room) and we'll be all set!  I know she won't be in the nursery at first so we do have time, but I'm still getting excited!

BTW, here's a belly shot from 27 weeks

CSN Stores - Tease and Swings!

Since I'm 7 months pregnant and on bedrest for the past 6 weeks, I've been spending a lot of time online shopping, mainly at CSN stores.  It's been a very cold winter and we have a very active little boy so I find myself gravitating to outdoor play items like swingsets.  I can't imagine how excited he would be if he got something like this for his birthday this spring!!

Bearcreek Bungalow Playground Swing Set

There are so many options to choose from at CSN Stores with over 200 online stores it's easy to find exactly what you need!  Keep an eye out for future reviews and the completed Big Boy Pirate room for our son and hopefully a fun outdoor play area too!
