Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving, It is a breezy cooler day here in Spring Hill, Florida . All the kidlets are home and I’m in the process of getting them to help clean up the house. We had so many dishes to wash last night that I think we used just about every dish in the house. My Middle child saw on TV about #BlackFriday shopping and wanted to know if we were going to participate holy moly is he insane ,If I do decide to go out it will be for essentials but at the moment I don’t have a need to be out there in that madness. I am how ever thinking about getting some Christmas decorations out and start to add some Holiday cheer to the house. We have plenty of left over to make a nice sized sandwich so let the feast begin again, So if any of you do plan on shopping today let us know what deals you got. Grab some Coffee, Tea, or Hot Cocoa and have a glorious day . ~L

So if your like me …and I am guessing you are because your here…you like the finer things in life. Not just for you but for your family as well! AND chances are you read our shout out earlier this month for Sweet Pea Box! Go HERE if not: Sweet Pea Box Review! We LOVE this place! We received a 8 PC box for Bellamie. After we talked to the ladies who run Sweet Pea Box a few times, and they got a feel for our style we where ready to go! You will get to take a personalized style quiz! For each box you get, they ask what size your children wear and what colors and styles they like. Finally, you can get as specific as you like by adding a message to the stylist for each box you get. Tell them your child’s personality, what brands you like, anything to help their stylist create the perfect box for your child. I will tell ya that after just a few emails they had us figured out! They sent a PERFECT assortment! It reflected our family’s taste and everyone was happy with the clothing (Even Mick….now that says a lot!) We are all picky, and rarely is everyone happy…even Bellamie!! She LOVES her Pickle Peas shirt! It has a snap on Robot that she loves to play with…we love it because we can un-snap a mess…and refresh by adding a new snap on bib (or go with out!) and our slobbering baby is sparkly clean again! My personal favorite is her Gymboree outfits. She got an ADORABLE corduroy jumper and matching shirt and a super cute one piece fleecy outfit! Morgan had her favorites….”Violet and Moss”! This is a favorite brand of hers anyhow so if was a huge bonus to get TWO pieces! A cute dress with a huge bow and a skirt. Ok believe it or not that isnt all either. Now here I am unclear as to whether they follow the blog…or if it was a lucky guess…We got a 3 piece krazylegs outfit…a top, leggings and a TUTU! If you follow the BHDD social media, you will notice Bellamie is in tutu’s often. Her mom, my daughter Morgan, was in ballet for years! So of course Bellamie has a collection of tutu’s! Well Played Sweet Pea Box….Well Played! We are now addicted! This is by far the BEST subscription box we have had the pleasure to review. AND this will be the ONLY box I will continue to subscribe to! Honestly @$50 for the WHOLE box how can you not! ONE of the outfits cost more than this!! I am guessing our box was easily $150-$175 in retail. I am beyond happy! So will you be! ONE OF YOU gets the chance to win a 4 pc. box of name brand baby clothing of your own! I have no doubts there will be many many new fans of our new favorite baby shop Via The Sweet Pea Box!
Tis the time of year for freezing weather, frozen achy bodies, still joints and bill heating bills. We really try to keep our heating bill in check, and it isn’t always easy with a baby in the house who refuses to keep her socks on and a micro pup who is sparsely furred! We want to keep the babies warm and toasty, but don’t want to declare bankrupcy to do it! This is why I love the Sunbeam Chill Away Heated Fleece Wrap, TCFQR-783-00! First thing you notice it the fact that it is SUPER SOFT! Made of premium Soft Royalmink ™ , next thing you notice is it has a generous size for a throw! 25 x57 inches. Plenty big enough for what we use this for. I heat up the Sunbeam Chill Away Heated Fleece Wrap, TCFQR-783-00 , unplug and set in the playroom floor for Bellamie to sit on while she plays. It has pockets so for a curious girl to store treasures in..or a cold gramma to stick her hand into for instant warmth! There is more than enough room for the baby and the lil dog to sit and play. But honestly even if there where no tiny dog or baby in the house this would get use!! I mean really who doesn’t love a toasty warm throw!! Its like when you pull your blanket out of the dryer and you instantly wrap up in it!…but better cause you don’t need to fold a load of laundry! Just plug in, pick your setting (it has 4) and enjoy! Perfect gift for anyone! , From kids to grandma everyone loves a toasty throw and at a reasonable price , it’s a win win! Why heat a whole house when only a portion is in use! I think for college kids, teens, people with bad circulation, people trying to cut their utility bills down…realy anyone would love this wrap! Also with an auto shut off (3 hours) you don’t need to worry if you forgot to shut off the blanket. Backed with a 5 year warranty, and the Sunbeam quality our family has come to expect!. Oh did I mention is washable?? Because it is a quality product, convenient, and versatile we are adding the Chill away personal heated Wrap to our 2013 HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE. You can find these throws at most major retailers and on-line at places like QVC, Meijer and Bed Bath and Beyond! We also get to give one of our readers a Sunbeam Chill Away Heated Fleece Wrap, TCFQR-783-00 of their own! Enter below!!
So we all know I cloth diaper! Well we received a diaper from a Rumpkinz and I must say we are in LOVE! We received a pink bobble minky diaper, with a embroidered panda! We think its amazingly adorable!
For the prep(Which every cloth diaper needs.) I simply ran it through the wash with a cloth diaper friendly soap and double rinsed to make sure there is no left over soap residue! I used Tide Free and Clear but I have also used soap nuts. Both of these are super cloth diaper friendly!
The quality of this diaper is great. No loose threads, straight seams, no leaks through the PUL! The diaper itself has an adjustable rise, and adjustable waist. With elastic along the back and elastic in the legs. The insert that came with this diaper is also VERY absorbent! It holds a TON of liquid! When I pulled it out of the washer it was VERY soggy and wet,but it dried the first round in the dryer.
These are really easy to snap and adjust, I tinkered with the snaps to see how many sizes you could make, it has 3 rises(low, medium, and high). My little girl has adorable chubby baby thighs, and a skinny mini waist, which means alot of cloth diapers require a TON of work to get snapped snuggle around her waist, with out being to snug around her thighs. These fit correctly the first time I snapped it!
Over all this is a super cute diaper, made by a stay at home mom. The quality is fantastic, and I absolutely love this fit! This diaper definately will be put into my regular rotation of diapers as one of my go to and favorites!

Beautycounter’s story begins with a recommendation from trusted source.
After a close friend suggested she check out a documentary about the ways that the environment could be impacting our health, Gregg Renfrew started to question the safety of the products she was using on her family and herself.
Much of what goes on our skin (our largest organ) is absorbed into the body and can end up in our bloodstream. So shouldn’t the products we use day after day be safe?
After searching for better beauty options that were safe and delivered results, she kept wishing there were something better. As a seasoned CEO and entrepreneur, Gregg saw an opportunity to fill the void herself. That’s when she founded Beautycounter.
Beginning with a team of respected health advocates, chemists and makeup artists to conceive and formulate prestige-quality products that would perform, she then added direct sales experts, business executives and leaders in technology to create a brand that would be able to make a difference.
Today, Beautycounter is a skincare and cosmetics company connecting people and empowering our network of Members and independent Consultants with the opportunity they need to improve their lives and the lives of the people they care about most.
Together we are a powerful force for change in the beauty industry.
Because we are fans of Beautycounter’sproducts they once again make list, 2013 HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE !
