Another post on the miraculous!

I caught up with the Staker Family blog this morning, finally getting a chance to see the fabulous video they put together, and I felt compelled to share. This family and boy are so inspiring to me, as is the amazing power of their faith and strength.


P.S. Bring Tissues!

3 Boxes of Coffee for $3 bucks and a Free stainless steel Travel Mug!

If you are as addicted to coffee as I am then you will REALLY appreciate this offer. Gevalia is giving away 3 boxes of coffee for 3 bucks *PLUS FREE SHIPPING* as well as a really nice stainless steel travel mug (can always use one more since either the mug I WANT in the morning is never clean, or if it is, I can not find the cover that matches that mug! lol.

Go here and sign on up!

Free Magazine Subscription

This is kinda cool. My daughter is a cheerleader so I was pretty excited about this offer. Click here for a free 1 year subscription to american cheerleader magazine. We have gotten this before. I find it nice to see what is new and upcoming in the world of cheerleaders. Some of the stunts they have the kids doing this day in age is nuts, and its nice to get a heads up on these and other issues that are in the community.

The irony of the fact that my daughter is a cheerleader (and a really good one too). Myself? I was an all the way band geek. Like marched in Drum Corps 4 summers and everything. I wouldnt have been caught dead as a cheerleader. I find now though that I really do see the athletic side of what these girls do. So go grab it and enjoy!

God Truly is great!

I have been following the chronicle of a little boy named Bronson and his mom Sara and their family for the last week. Like so many others here in blog land have. I sit here crying (at work), for joy for this family. Today their baby boy finally woke up. I was so scared for them when she was describing some of his symptoms. This story hit very close to my heart because it was a story about an accident that could happen to any of us. That has sadly happened in my family. To be able to watch this family go through such similar feelings that ours did, and yet, in the end have such a joyous outcome. Praise the lord for their outcome!! We lost our sweet baby niece Isabella, but their sweet baby Bronson was saved! Perhaps Isabella tugged on gods pants and asked him to listen to half the globe shouting their prayers in support of this family and child.

Perhaps she gave him one of her impish little smiles (like this) and told him to take care of that family. Either way I am joyful for them! It was healing to see them go through this. Perhaps because she blogged with such intensity that it allowed me to work through stuff I never got to, or perhaps it was just that I am at the point in my own grief that I can think of her and smile.

Sandwich Revolution House Party!

YAY! I got chosen to host this party! I'm super excited! I can't wait to share more information regarding this awesome opportunity!

A House Party™ is thousands of parties across the country, hosted by people like you. Each event is sponsored by a leading brand and focuses on something cool that the sponsor wants its best fans to experience firsthand and share with their friends.

Not signed up for house party yet? Head on over and join the party!

Mom? Are you ready?

Let it be known far and wide that THIS mom is not, in fact, READY for her little girl to grow up! However, it is going to be that time all to soon! She is 12 and well, if I could just freeze time!

Since I can't I recently went over and signed up for this cute kit from All You and Kotex. The Kit is free, you are only responsible for the shipping (2.99). I think she will be pretty excited to get this. She is always wanting to open my stuff when I get it in the mail. So this will be a surprise to get something that is for her.

Go check it out here!

Thanks But I had a coupon!

Feeling slightly better!

OK needing to get back on the blogger wagon here! I wanted to start today with this great offer that was given to me by General Mills. I was given a chance to product test the new Chocolate cheerios. I was sincerely impressed. They taste like a great chocolate treat. But with only 100 calories per serving (3/4 of a cup), they are not a bad snack for those that are watching their calorie intake. I think the best thing I can say about these though, is that my hubby LOVED them. He is not usually a big sweets fan, but he grabbed them out of the box last night and was like. Hey these really are good. Yay!! Low calorie chocolate snack! He actually had a bowl this morning for breakfast and was all happy when he got to drink the chocolate milk at the end! He can be such a kid at times!

Any who I got a bunch of coupons with my free box, and I would love to share! So I think I will toss a couple of them in with my giveaway. I will also be passing on some of my cover girl lovelies. That will be a post to come in a few days though. Once I get all of my try & tell's done on my friends done.
