Moms Nite Out-May 5th-See You At Maplewood Mall!

Join us Thursday May 5th at Maplewood Mall as we will will be joining over 15 millions moms expected to take part in the 3rd Annual National Mom’s Nite Out. Moms across the country will unite in celebrating motherhood with each other via local and national events as well as cyber celebrations. Organized by Maria Bailey, CEO of BSM Media, author and Mom Talk Radio host, National Mom’s Nite Out will unite hundreds of social media groups, companies, local playgroups, mom bloggers and networks in giving moms a well deserved night off.

I am the "Official Mom Blogger" for Minnesota! I am super excited as this is my first year to attend.I would like to know how many locals plan to attend? As I have exciting news to share with you tomorrow,so you will want to stop back to see what that will be. There are going to be more new exciting things that I have to share with you as I am just starting to get a list from Heather with the Sponsor's! But I can tell you this~I have seen the list for the ones that she has secured and you are going to love it. We are going to have so much fun~I hope too see you there!

“National Mom’s Nite Out is one of the largest cooperative efforts of Mommy groups, Mom-focused organizations and corporations, bloggers and vloggers – all coming together for one great night in support of motherhood,” Bailey said, adding, “Moms can even get in on the virtual fun by participating in our #MomsNiteOut Twitter celebration or watching live-streaming parties on MomTV.com.”
A sponsor since the first year hosting celebrations for moms on May 5, Simon Property Group will plan events at as many as 100 malls across the country.  “Simon Property Group is proud to be part of this effort that recognizes the importance of motherhood,” said Lynnette Lauria, Regional Vice President Marketing-Florida. “Our malls are the perfect meeting places for all moms and we look forward to hosting many fun-filled events.”

Moms can learn about events in their area or national and cyber events by visiting the National Mom’s Nite Out website at www.momsniteout.com.
About National Mom’s Nite Out
National Mom’s Nite Out™ is timed just before the official Mother’s Day holiday for a reason.  Maria Bailey organized the first National Mom’s Nite Out as, for years, she watched moms take care of everyone else on Mother’s Day, but never themselves. These events give Moms the excuse to take the night off and to celebrate motherhood, without the kids.

Spring Is Here-That Means Easter Is Next!

Spring is finally here~after the long cold winter that we had I was so happy to see the sun! And,with that warm weather comes a holiday that is one of my favorites.Easter. Don't you just love going to the store and seeing all the different kinds of candy that they have? Or all the cute Easter Plush's that are out now? I saw the cutest bunny today~he was pink and had the biggest ears that stuck right up! I was going to buy one~but I have 10 grandchildren and one bunny is not a option anymore..LOL So~I decided that I we didn't need it. We always get together and have a big dinner and I am already thinking about my shopping list. As we have a big ham,with all the trimmings.I am talking two different kinds of potatoes~green bean casserole~corn and of course deviled eggs. I do most of the cooking as my daughter likes to make the desserts.She always comes up a good too~she goes through all her cookbooks to find a new one! I can't wait to see what she comes up with this year.  And of course there are the grandchildren that come over so even though they are older we get them a Easter Basket to share with the family.As it wouldn't be Easter if you didn't get a basket.As long as I can remember I have loved the black jelly beans and peeps and I still buy them.My grandchildren don't like them.so that is one thing that I don't have to hide. LOL We also like to have the Easter Egg Hunt and there usually is a $5.00 bill in one of them so it is fun to watch them run all over looking for the eggs. Of course  the other eggs have prizes and candy but that money really makes them look all that much harder. We also enjoy coloring Easter Eggs as I even dye them by myself if the grandchildren are all busy.You should see the look on their faces when I tell them that the Easter Bunny brought them! As I make sure that they each have one with their name on.As I still believe in the Easter Bunny~Don't you?!? 
My Mom loved this time of the year and in memory and honor we will carry on the traditions.As we lost her around this time last year and I know that she is looking down on us and smiling...

About Hop:
Blending state of the art animation with live action, Hop is a comedy about E.B. (voiced by Russell Brand), the teenage son of the Easter Bunny. On the eve of taking over the family business, E.B. leaves for Hollywood in pursuit of his dream of becoming a drummer.  Once there, he encounters Fred (James Marsden of the X-Men series, Enchanted), recently fired and determined to pull his life together.  Feigning injury, E.B. persuades Fred to take him in, and Fred finds himself living with the world’s worst houseguest.   Back on Easter Island, the Easter Bunny’s second in command, an oversized chick named Carlos, seizes E.B.’s disappearance as an opportunity to plot a coup.  Ultimately, Fred and E.B. are Easter’s only hope and they find themselves returning to Easter Island, locked in an epic battle to save the beloved holiday.  The film is helmed by Tim Hill, director of the blockbuster Alvin and the Chipmunks and produced by Chris Meledandri’s Illumination Entertainment (Despicable Me).

Spring is finally here. Next week it is suppose to be beautiful~In fact they are talking about us reaching the 50's!

There was no worrying about batteries or figuring out what to play. I had everything I needed right there in my own head and I must say my childhood was a blast. This site is my dedication to those days and my chance to do it all over again.
The mission of Gingersnap Alley is to provide a safe, everyday ideas for activities that encourage healthier more meaningful choices for children ages 0-10 while giving parents the opportunity to bond with them if they so choose. I'm a very firm believer in the power of imagination.

Boudreaux's Butt Paste Review & Giveaway! 4/16

Boudreaux's Butt Paste was specifically formulated by a pharmacist with direction from a respected pediatrician to provide effective diaper rash care. I don't know about you~but I have been using this for years! As Boudreaux's Butt Paste has been around a long time.


  Boudreaux's Butt Paste was originally developed in the 1970s by Louisiana pediatrician "Pappy" Talbot, but the main formula was compounded by a local pharmacist, Dr. George Boudreaux, in the town of Covington.
The product became a local hit, and in 1994, Boudreaux sold his pharmacy to concentrate on marketing Butt Paste.
Upon selling the pharmacy, Boudreaux bought an RV, renamed it the "Butt Mobile" and traveled to regional trade shows and local pharmacies to market the product. 
 At one of these shows, a regional manager at Wal-Mart took on the product for a trial. When the trial period was over, the manager found Doc Boudreaux's product outsold the leading brand by a large margin.
Since then, Butt Paste has appeared in many department stores, including Wal-Mart, Target, and Walgreens, as well as enjoying a strong cult following on the Internet..
Butt Paste has been featured on The Oprah Show, Tonight Show, Today Show, ESPN, and People Magazine. Butt Paste can be found in Wal-Mart, Target,CVS, and Walgreens as well as many online stores.
Boudreaux's Butt Paste is not only good for diaper rash~I use it too! I have very sensitive skin and break out so bad in the cold months with eczema that my skin cracks and hurts so bad.I put some on my arms and it helped so much~the rash is almost gone.
 Many hikers, bikers, joggers, cyclists, hunters, truckers, and athletes also use the product because it provides a protective barrier against wetness, helps relieve chapped or cracked skin, and helps protect from the drying effects of wind and cold weather.
Boudreaux’s Butt Paste is fabulous for clearing diaper rash. It goes on and cleans off easily, treats and protects, and has a pleasant scent. In addition, it has been shown to be effective for abrasions, acne, chafed skin, chapped lips, feminine irritation, fever blisters, heat rashes, hemorrhoids, incontinent rashes, jock itch, minor burns, oral lesions, poison ivy, poison oak, psoriasis, razor burn, rectal itching, and shingles.

   *Win A Great Selection Of Boudeaux's Butt Paste Products*

You can win the following~
Boudreaux's Butt Paste 2 oz.
Boudreaux's Butt Paste All Natural 2 oz.
Boudreaux's Baby Kisses
Boudreaux's Baby Butt Smooth Ointment

Batman The Brave and The Bold Season One Part Two DVD Review!



Movie Synopsis~
Batman wings into an exciting new era, teaming with a mighty honor roll of DC Comics Super Heroes in this action-packed series. Through the show’s final 13 Animated Adventures in this 2-Disc Collection, the Dark Knight allies with Aquaman, Plastic Man, Blue Beetle, Red Tornado, Green Arrow, Wildcat, Deadman, Bronze Tiger and Atom to take on an array of evildoers ranging from mad scientists to intergalactic crooks, from power-mad dictators to out-of-control teenagers. He even travels to a parallel world, becoming the villainous Owlman! In this cool, cutting-edge and often funny series bringing back old-school comic-book styling and dry wit to crimefighting, Batman faces any peril – including other heroes stealing the show – in his relentless pursuit of justice.
As soon as my grandson saw this movie at my house he could not wait to watch it. He loves Super heroes and Batman has been a favorite in our house since my son was a boy.I can remember him wearing his batman PJ's with the cape on them.LOL  Many things have changed since then and this DVD is not left behind.As I thought that the graphics were fantastic. My grandson liked all the different Animated Adventures,as they were short enough to keep his attention.With 13 different ones~he just could not make up his mind which was  his favorite.He said he might have to watch it a couple more times..Something tells me that he will be taking this home with him.

Carmex Orange Moisture Plus

I can't even remember not using Carmex. Since I have been a kid~I have carried a jar of Carmex. Skip forward a few years{OK~a whole lotta years..LOL} and Carmex now has not only the jars  but also a Carmex Moisture Plus lip balm. 
With a little help from vitamin E and aloe, Carmex Moisture Plus lip balm helps nourish and moisturize lips leaving them so kissably soft they will be hard to resist.
I am a member of the Carmex Blog Squad and I was one of the 150 blogs to try out their new lip balm in orange! It was as good as I thought that it would be.Just a hint of orange and it went on clear.I love the way that it makes my lips feel. As soon as I applied it I could feel it working! The orange flavor was so good~Not too over powerful~In fact I thought that it tasted like Orange sherbert. This is my new favorite and I can't wait for all of you to be able to try it too! I'll be sure to let you know as soon as I get word that it is on the market.

Being part of The Super Insiders from Tavern Direct I get to try new things and this month the selection was  Toscana Parmesan Marinade. I was so excited to try this as it looked so good. I decided to make

~Chicken Caesar Salad~

I got the chicken all sliced up to get ready to marinate.


Then I got the marinade dish out to start the process. The Tuscana Parmesan Marinade smelled delicious! I was getting hungry when I was mixing it all together.

I left the chicken in the fridge for about 3 hours to make sure that the sauce really would soak in.

I took the chicken out of the fridge to start cooking and I added just a little dab of olive oil so it wouldn't stick.


I could not believe how nice and brown it got just with the marinade on it! It just got so crispy and I loved that I didn't have to add anything else to the pan.




 Here is how the Chicken Caesar Salad looked before Bob and I made our plates. As I also added Green onions,Tomatoes,Parmesan cheese and I made Garlic Croutons too.



This was our bowls before we devoured everything that was in them. As the taste on the chicken from the Toscana Parmesan Marinade was Awesome! It gave just enough to flavor to make it one of the best salads I have ever whipped up! {Thanks to Tavern Direct!}

You can find Tavern Direct on Facebook that way you will never miss any news about promotions or new recipes.

You can also win a bottle of Tavern Direct's Toscana Garlic Parmesan Marinade just stop by the Tavern Direct Blog

Sand Gone Review!

Do you love to go to the beach~But dislike the sand that seems to follow you everywhere?!? I know that every time we go to the beach~I am forever shaking things out not matter how good we try to get the sand off everything. It seems that the little feet that enter my car{that would be the grandchildren}have sand hidden! That is why I was super excited to sample Sand Gone.
 
About Sand Gone~
Sand Gone is a dry body powder that, when applied to sand covered skin, removes the sand and leaves the skin soft and smooth while feeling fresh and clean.
Sand Gone comes in an attractive eight ounce jar with a screw-able lid. Within the jar is a microfiber applicator. It is extremely soft but also durable. It can be cleaned by household washers and dryers when necessary. The applicator also has a strap across it to help secure it to the user's hand as the powder is applied.
The dry, white powder is both non-toxic and non-talc. It also contains a hint of coconut fragrance. Sand Gone is best used when cleaning up while leaving the beach. However, Sand Gone works perfectly well when cleaning up after the sand box, playground or wherever one encounters sand. It is like having a "dry shower" from a jar. In addition to removing the sand, Sand Gone also removes the salt from your skin after a day at the beach. No more uncomfortable "scratchy feeling" under clothing during the drive home.
After using Sand Gone, you will quickly find that it becomes one of those must-haves at the beach, sandbox or park. You will know to bring your sunblock and shades...but also your SAND GONE.

Sand Gone was founded by Tiffany Smith, a mother of two children.

You can find Sand Gone on Facebook  and Twitter too!

Blueberry Buddy~A Shar Pei who acts tough for his size but is a loving push over who’s as sweet as the blueberry frosting on his head. When sleepy, Blueberry Buddy cozies up in his own cupcake wrapper.


 Twinkle Sprinkles~A  playful, loving, and mischievous Beagle, whose colorful pink sprinkled frosting top looks good enough to eat! Twinkle Sprinkles likes to yelp when happy and sleep in her cupcake wrapper where her nose stays nice and toasty.



Coco-Coconut~A fluffy poodle with a loving side that is as sweet as a frosted cupcake. Cuddle Coco-Coconut and keep her cozy in her cupcake wrapper.


PetCakes are available online at PetCakesToys.com and at specialty stores like www.toysrus.com (online only – not in the stores), www.etoys.com and www.amazon.com.
