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!

LONG Overdue Review!

I had the opportunity to review another product from CSN Stores and I chose the KidCo Center Gateway Pressure Mount Safety Gate in White and it is exactly what we were looking for! 

Now one reason that this review has taken long than normal is (not only because of the pregnancy complications) but because of some shipping and delivery issues.  This was in NO way CSN's fault!!  When I e-mailed them to let them know that the first gate arrived damaged in an open box and was missing parts they were quick to fix it!  The customer service was absolutely fantastic!  A replacement gate was on the way before I knew it!  This just confirms for me what a wonderful company they really are!

The gate itself is fantastic.  The quality is great and it makes life SO much easier!  We use the stairs all the time so our old gate (which was about 20 years old and falling apart) just wasn't cutting it.  This gate pressure mounts to the wall and spindles (with an additional spindle gate mount pack) and is super secure!  The best part is that all we have to do is open the door and walk through to go upstairs.  No removing the gate or trying to step over it anymore.

I do want to apologize to CSN Stores for taking so long to complete this review and once again thank them for excellent customer service! 

**Disclaimer - I received a promo code for a portion of the cost of the product, but this was not a paid post. My honest opinions have been given, however others experiences and opinions may differ from my own**


I know it's been forever since I blogged.  I've been having some pregnancy complications so I haven't been on the computer much recently.  Now that I'm stuck on bedrest for a while I might actually be on more often, I hope!  So far, I'm not a fan of bedrest.  Sure relaxing is nice, but I don't like being forced to relaxed when there's stuff I need to do around here.  Our Christmas decorations are still up, the house is a mess, laundry needs to be done.  Thankfully my in-laws are coming tomorrow, but I'd like for the house to be at least semi-clean before they get here but I know they won't mind and they understand that it's not going to be perfect. I really hope I don't have to be on bedrest for long, I think I'll go crazy if I do!
