Mambo Sprouts

If I could afford it, I'd switch over to all organic products. I really think they have a better impact on your body, and the environment overall. We buy what we can organic, but there are some companies out there that are trying to make organic products more affordable. Mambo Sprouts is one of those companies.

Recently, I signed up for Mambo Sprouts' back to school coupon books, which is filled with coupons for organic snacks and foods. Now, they're offering a giveaway of a reusable bag filled with natural and organic products, valued at $100.00! By blogging about it, I'm getting an entry to win the bag. Yay! So, if you're a mom of young children or you know someone who is, let them know about Mambo Sprouts coupon books and giveaway.

You can order the coupon book here.

You can learn how to enter the giveaway here.

Not only do they send out coupon books, but they also offer printable online e-coupons for natural and organic products.

Thanks for reading!

Inspiration!

Reading Cassandra's post on organizing her craft stuff inspired me to get mine organized, too. I had been keeping it in a bag, but it was really just getting to be too much for the bag - and every time I wanted to do something it would be spread out all over the table. I decided that it needed makeover before I read Cassandra's post, but I was just going to try to re-organize it inside the bag. After reading her blog, I decided that I needed to do more than just re-organize: my stuff needed a new home. Sooo, we have this desk-type-deal that was holding our office supplies and random junk (mail, magazines, etc.) that I decided to clean out and use for my craft stuff. With VERY limited space in this tiny house, I was able to get rid of some things, pack some things away, and get everything to fit together nicely. Here is a before pic:


As you can see there are miscellaneous office supplies and other junk everywhere. It wasn't being used to hold any craft stuff, just stuff we wanted to get out of the way. I don't know if you can tell from the picture, but the desk part drops down. So, we fold the desk part up when we're not using it and it hides everything you see pictured.
It took me a few days, but (with Chad's help) I was able to get everything situated nicely. Here is a current picture:

Thanks, Cassandra for your inspiration. I am enjoying working in my new craft station!

Lilly's Birthday Outfit






I just had to share what I ordered for Lilly to wear for her birthday party! Her party will be Saturday, April 25th at our house. I haven't decided the time, yet, but it will be in the afternoon: after her nap.

A New Year, A New Beginning

So I haven't written in a while; packing, Christmas, moving, trying to get settled in - I have been busy! We are liking the new house and area. It's like the best of both worlds. Not too crowded (like Wesley Chapel was getting) but not too country either. We've got almost everywhere I would want or need to shop on a regular basis right near by. And then Atlanta's only like 30 mins away! 
Getting used to things weather related has been interesting! I really can't believe how different Georgia is from Florida and it's only one state away (lol). Things like needing to let the water drip so the pipes don't freeze is always fun. We've learned our lesson three times now so far! :) Then, our car battery died and we had to get it replaced. OH, and I can't forget when the heater froze so we didn't have any heat. NOT COOL. Shall I mention the washer that wasn't properly hooked up and the first time we tried to use it... - well, the laundry room got soaked - Thank God it was a separate room of the house, though, right? :) You might be interested to know, too, that Lillian put BOTH our power plugs to our computers in her mouth and they BOTH stopped working - on the same day. LOL. Chad got his replaced for free, thankfully, and mine miraculously started working a few days later. She is in to everything these days... (Oh, and she unharmed from putting cord in her mouth, in case you were wondering!)
Aside from the minor mishaps and difficulties, our life here in Georgia has been pretty smooth. I love the weather, and the pretty scenery that is all around us. We have a large yard and there are always a bunch of birds that just congregate in our yard and chirp and sing. I DO miss being able to just call up one of my friends and hang out, though. We are working on trying to find some friends up here...
We do love our church and our youth group, and things are coming along VERY well so far. We are really pleased with how well the youth is coming along. I started working for the church this week (only 5hrs/wk). I am enjoying it and Lillian is enjoying the change of scenery during the day, too. 
Here's an update on Lilly: She talking A LOT saying her dada's and doda's and dodee's and all the little sounds she makes, although she is not very quiet about it! :) She is trying SUPER hard to say dog, too. And it is really starting to sound like it! :) She points at Princess and tries to say it (lol). She has been crawling for a while now, and she walks along the furniture and makes her way around the house, getting in to anything and everything she can reach! She has stood by herself several times for approximately 30 seconds, so I think walking is in the near future. Babies change sooo much in the first year; it really is amazing. Well, it really just shows how amazing GOD is!

Well, that's it for now, but I do have other things I'd like to talk about - so, hopefully I can get around to blogging about them. For instance, I've been doing really well cooking at home (mainly bc we haven't had the money to dine out! lol), and I'd like to share a little about it. 

Stay tuned.

Swagbucks.com

Have you heard of this site yet? "Swagbucks are the web's premier digital dollar" as it says on their homepage.  Basically, you 'win' swagbucks for using their search engine, and you can redeem the bucks for cool stuff. I just got a $5 Starbucks giftcard in the mail from redeeming Swagbucks that I won. Want to sign up? Go here and you'll be added as one of my friends - And when you earn bucks, I do too. I have to admit it was pretty cool to get Starbucks for just doing my regular surfing on the web! :) I'm so glad I found this site.
