Win the Book - "The Parent' Guide to Baby - Led Weaning" Review/ Giveaway

   I am so in love with this book, "The Parents' Guide to Baby - Led Weaning" by Jennifer House MSc, RD!   Where was it when I had little babies?  I definitely could have used this book and saved a lot of uneaten baby jarred foods and money.
  Baby - Led Weaning is skipping the mush and feeding your baby finger foods, right from the start.  This means your baby doesn't have to eat processed, pureed foods, instead they get simple, but whole and healthy foods from the beginning.  No more buying or making foods and having to spoon feed your baby.
  To begin baby - led weaning make sure your baby has the physical strength and signs of readiness to feed themselves before you get started.  You need to focus on iron-rich foods.  This will be a messy experience, but worth all the mess.

Cars.Com Review Sponsored Post

(This is a Sponsored Post)

  I have been in dire need of a new car. I am currently driving a Ford Explorer 2006 and even though it has been a great vehicle, it is a 2006 and miles are starting to add up and little things are beginning to wear out. We just replaced the battery, alternator and some kind of t shaped hose that was causing it to run hot. It is a really clean and great car, but I just saw what I want on Cars.Com - the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse.  It is gorgeous and it has my" must have" 3rd row seating.  I won't drive anything without a 3rd row. I have 3 boys who fight from one town to another without the 3rd row. With these, we split them up and have enjoyable rides.
  The cost of this SUV is amazing- Only $29,930!  Everything we have been looking at has been $40,000 plus. and that is a no-no on our salary.
  Look at the insides of this beauty:

"9/11 " The Movie Due out 9/8 Review/ Giveaway for a #Remember9/11 GiftPack

911 prizepack

   Do you remember September 1, 2011?  I know I definitely do! I was taking a load of laundry to my laundry room, as I passed the T.V. in the living room, I saw an interruption on my local news showing an airplane hitting the World's Trade Center in New York City.  I stopped and froze. No one was really aware of exactly what terrorists would do until this.  I had children at school and a husband at work and as I watched another plane hit, I knew our country was in trouble. I called my husband and the school to see if I needed to come get my kids.  The kids in school were actually watching a re-play of what had just taken place.  It wasn't long before the Pentagon was hit.  I remember praying to God that this horrible tragedy stop.  There were people caught in the buildings, jumping from windows of buildings, people on the streets of New York running and they were covered in soot and concrete matter.

"Unleashed" Win it on DVD or Digital ITunes Review/Giveaway


    "Unleashed" is a new comedy starring KATE MICUCCI | JUSTIN CHATWIN | STEVE HOWEY | HANA MAE LEE | JOSH BRENER WITH ILLEANA DOUGLAS AND SEAN ASTIN.  I am so in love with Justin Chatwin, he played in the series "Shameless" and Steve Howey from "Reba" .  This movie is due out in Theaters August 25, 2017.  This hilarious movie was awesome.  I laughed my head off at the scenes of Ajax the Cat as a man and Summit the dog as a man.
   Before I tell you about this great movie, let me first say it is not for children, so don't be mistaken by the cute cat and dog because there are curse words, some partial nudity and adult scenes.
   Emma, played by Kate Micucci, finds herself single after being betrayed by a boyfriend who stole her newest money making app.  So, Emma packs up and moves to San Franscico to get away from it all. Emma is an animal lover and her ex was allergic to animals so, Emma adopts her two best friends, a cat named Ajax and a dog named Summit.  Together they begin a new life together.  While trying to find an apartment, Emma meets Carl, played by Sean Astin.  Carl begins to fall for Emma but, she doesn't see it yet.
