Rainbow Brite...I remember you when

Do you remember her?
Oh, she didn't belong to me. My oldest daughter loved her, just loved her. I guess she was like Dora today. I remember searching high & low all over Jacksonville, NC for a bedspread & curtains. We had just come back from living in Japan for 3 yrs. We were unaware of this Rainbow Brite phenom. She didn't even speak English very well when we got back. But she could say enough to make you understand she had to have a "Rainbu Bite". Where does the time go?
Just like my daughter, it seems Rainbow has grown up into a beautiful young lady!
You can go to Rainbow and meet her new friends and watch 4 new Rainbow Brite animated mini episodes.
You can join Rainbow Brite, her two loyal friends Moonglow and Tickled Pink, and their horse friends:
Starlite, Shimmer, and Sunriser on their adventures thru Rainbow Land.
While you’re there, you can download Door Signs, Wallpapers, and even the Theme Song all for FREE!

I was sent some CD's to share with you. The CD includes:
* Rainbow Brite animated short
* Games & puzzles
* Rainbow Brite Theme song
* Meet Rainbow Brite & friends & more

**Leave your mailing info in the comments & I will send you The Rainbow Brite Adventure Pack. I WILL NOT PUBLISH YOUR NAME & ADDRESS IN COMMENTS. I WILL ERASE IT**
But I will let you know when I mail you the CD.

It Snowed...

But in my own defense, IT was after 1:00 when it started. They could have had school!

Only in The South

Where else can there NOT be so much as ONE snow flake, not even a drop of rain to TURN into a snow flake, and they cancel school for the day?
BUT the weather man SAID, it might snow as MUCH as an inch tonight.
Might I add there is not a gallon of milk to be had at the store....and I really did need milk.

PS: I will also add I would not live anywhere else other than my beloved south & I couldn't/wouldn't drive if there was an inch of snow on the ground. But for the sake of all southern mamas, don't cancel school without some ACTUAL snow.
Thank you Mr. Weatherman. May you have 14 kids under the age of 10 at home driving your wife crazy. I bet you wont do that again.

Johnson & Johnson and Baby Shower ideas

I love Johnson's Baby products. Nothing smells as good as a baby washed in their Lavender Bedtime Bath and slathered down in the Pink baby Lotion. It's THE SMELL of babies. The Baby Oil,nothing beats it for cradle cap.
I always get Johnson's Baby products for every baby shower. Sometimes I put it in a diaper bag and sometimes in a little lined wicker basket that the new mom can use in the baby's room. It's always a much appreciated gift, as these bottles lasts for months.
Did you know Johnson's has been around since 1890? Me neither!
Want to see all of Johnson's new products? Go visit:
(See my model? I think he should be the new face of Johnson & Johnson, he's a big fan of their stuff!)

"I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Johnson’s and received samples of Johnson’s Baby products to facilitate my review."

I thought I'd share The Husband's birthday present with you.
Us being good friends and I like showing off my handsome boy.
I lovvve Etsy. I love that it supports crafty people and usually stay at home moms. Just doing what they love to do. And you can't find a more personalized gift than you can find on Etsy. These people are crazy crafty.
The man is the hardest person in the world to buy for. But I knew he'd love this more than anything when I came across it.
These are wood blocks. All I did was send her a bunch of pictures, told her I wanted black & white. I let her pick which photos to use & what ever else she thought would be cute. (because I'm indecisive like that)
I couldn't believe how great they looked when they came in. Beautiful. And it's recycled art. Can't get much better than that.
If you want to take a look at what else she does, which is ALOT her etsy address is:

***This was not a compensated post. Mandy over at her Etsy shop has NO idea who I am,
I'm sure she just knows me as the mother of the most cutest boy she's ever done photo blocks for ***
