Snooze Shade Giveaway!

29 January



This is the wonderful SnoozeShade infant car seat cover.

SnoozeShade for Infant Car Seats is the award-winning breathable sun and sleep shade for Group 0/0+ infant carriers with rigid carry handles. It protects baby from the sun or makes any time sleep time.
Use SnoozeShade for Infant Car Seats day or night, on holiday and when travelling so your little one can sleep comfortably wherever you are. It is a wonderful way to protect them and keep them comfortable.



SnoozeShade for Infant Car Seats can help if you:
* think baby is struggling to switch off from outside distractions
* would like to encourage good sleeping habits when baby is out
* have older children whose schedules conflict with new baby’s nap time
* prefer other people not to disturb your sleeping child
This innovative baby product was created by a British mother to help babies and toddlers sleep for as long as they need in an infant carrier.
It's what parents have been waiting for - a simpler, safer, lightweight and secure alternative to hanging coats or blankets over a pram to help baby sleep on-the-go - and, above all, it works.
It is made from a double layer of soft breathable fabric with the highest level of protection from harmful UV rays, blocking over 98.5% of UVA and UVB (UPF50+).
SnoozeShade for Infant Car Seats provides a shady, well-ventilated sleep environment by blurring the visual stimuli that can keep baby awake.
It’s the first sleeping-on-the-go solution for babies and it's great for holidays, in restaurants or any time you have to be out during baby’s nap time.
Benefits include:
* excellent sun protection - blocks more than 98.5% of UV rays (UPF50+)
* blurs visual distractions that keep babies awake
* use in several ways to help baby sleep or create valuable shade
* helps maintain your baby’s sleep routine wherever you are
* prevents well-meaning people from disturbing your sleeping baby
* made from soft stretchy breathable fabric which doesn’t retain heat
* use all year round to protect from sun, wind, chill and insects
* sneak-a-peek™ zip lets you check easily when baby is asleep
* quick to fit, easy to remove and folds up small
* fits most popular styles of Group 0 and 0+ infant car seats
* endorsed and supported by international baby sleep experts



Like the Stroller version, the SnoozeShade infant car seat cover is light and breathable and very easy & compact to transport every where you go. I also love that it's a universal fit so it will fit any car seat snug. I love using mine for long trips out side to keep the baby from harsh weather conditions.

If you don't have a SnoozeShade Car seat cover or Stroller cover I highly recommend getting one!

Production Begins on DreamWorks Pictures' WikiLeaks Project THE FIFTH ESTATE!!!

26 January

PRODUCTION BEGINS ON DREAMWORKS’

WIKILEAKS PROJECT “THE FIFTH ESTATE”

 Drama Will Open in Theaters November 15, 2013

Participant Media Joins Project

 

LOS ANGELES, CA (January 23, 2013) - Principal photography has begun on the WikiLeaks drama “The Fifth Estate,” it was announced today by DreamWorks Studios.  The film about the controversial website stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Julian Assange and Daniel Brühl as Daniel Domscheit-Berg, as well as Laura Linney, Anthony Mackie, David Thewlis, Peter Capaldi, Dan Stevens, Alicia Vikander and Carice van Houten.

 

“The Fifth Estate” will open in U.S. theaters on November 15, 2013 and be distributed domestically by Disney’s Touchstone label.  Distribution internationally will be split among Disney, DreamWorks partner Reliance, and deals made through the studio’s partnership with Mister Smith Entertainment. 

 

Following Daniel Domscheit-Berg (Brühl), an early supporter and eventual colleague of Julian Assange (Cumberbatch), “The Fifth Estate” traces the heady, early days of WikiLeaks, culminating in the release of a series of controversial and history changing information leaks.  The website’s overnight success brought instant fame to its principal architects and transformed the flow of information to news media and the world at large.

 

Joining DreamWorks as a co-financier on “The Fifth Estate” is Participant Media.  This will be the fifth collaboration between the two companies who previously partnered on Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln,” the 2011 Academy Award-winning smash “The Help,” “The Kite Runner” and “The Soloist.”  With a focus on real issues that shape our lives, Participant creates social action and advocacy programs to transform the impact of the media experience into individual and community action.  Some of their other films include “An Inconvenient Truth,” “Good Night, and Good Luck,” “Food, Inc.,” “Charlie Wilson’s War,” “Waiting for ‘'Superman,’” “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” and the current Academy Award nominee for Best Foreign Language Film, “No.”

 

Bill Condon (“Kinsey,” “Dreamgirls,” "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn") will direct “The Fifth Estate” from a screenplay by Josh Singer (TV’s “Fringe,” “The West Wing”), based on “Inside WikiLeaks: My Time with Julian Assange at the World’s Most Dangerous Website” by Daniel Domscheit-Berg and “WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange’s War on Secrecy” by David Leigh and Luke Harding.  The producers are Steve Golin and Michael Sugar, with Participant’s Jeff Skoll and Jonathan King joining Richard Sharkey as executive producers.  “The Fifth Estate” is a coproduction between Afterworks and FBO, with Hilde De Laere co-producing for FBO. The film is supported by the Belgian Tax Shelter for Audiovisual Production.

 

Said director Bill Condon, “It may be decades before we understand the full impact of WikiLeaks and how it's revolutionized the spread of information. So this film won't claim any long view authority on its subject, or attempt any final judgment. We want to explore the complexities and challenges of transparency in the information age and, we hope, enliven and enrich the conversations WikiLeaks has already provoked.”

 

About DreamWorks Studios

 

DreamWorks Studios is a motion picture company formed in 2009 and led by Steven Spielberg and Stacey Snider in partnership with The Reliance Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group.  The company’s recent releases include Spielberg's "Lincoln," starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field and Tommy Lee Jones.  The film has grossed over $150 million at the U.S. box office and has been nominated for twelve Academy awards including Best Picture and Best Director.  Other releases include “Real Steel,” starring Hugh Jackman and directed by Shawn Levy, Steven Spielberg’s “War Horse,” based on Michael Morpurgo’s award-winning book and was nominated for six Academy Awards including Best Picture, and “The Help,” which resonated with audiences around the country and earned over $200 million at the box office and received four Academy Award nominations with Octavia Spencer winning one for Best Supporting Actress.  Upcoming films include the comedy "Delivery Man," starring Vince Vaughn, the WikiLeaks drama "The Fifth Estate," and car racing actioner "Need For Speed."

My Mouth Just Farted!!

17 January
From our 3 year old. Whenever Ava burps now she says ‘Excuse me, my mouth just farted!” with a big grin on her face.
This girl is saying some pretty funny things. I am trying to write them down so she has them when she is older. Her way of thinking is cracking me up.

Wee Rock Giveaway

17 January
wee-rock-buton

There is something so classic and timeless about a rocking horse. My daughters love their rocking horse and play cowgirls on it often. They are an iconic symbol of childhood that people of all generations can relate to. Whether it’s sitting in a nursery or getting plenty of use in the playroom, a rocking horse can add a certain esthetic to the room. Wee Rock Toy Co. has put a new spin on the classic rocking horse by making them sustainably in a convenient new design. Catherine O’Sullivan and Michael Galea, founders of Wee Rock Toy Co., used their architectural training to create a classic rocking horse that has only six pieces, allowing them to be shipped flat and assembled with no tools, no glue and no hardware! These unique rockers are crafted from bamboo plywood – an ultra high quality, renewable and child-safe material. Unlike most plywood, the bamboo plywood used by Wee Rock Toy Co. uses a soy-based adhesive that emits zero VOCs and is a responsibly sourced renewable material. The bamboo parts are simply finished with a food-grade butcher-block conditioner. A huge bonus – all of these toys are cut, finished and packaged in the United States! In addition to being sustainably made in the USA, the Wee Rock Toy Co. rockers are adorable, and currently available in five designs, including a classic horse, gorilla, elephant, rhino and giraffe. See the designs here.
ELIZABETH ON ELEPHANT-SQUARE
Each of these five designs has the same critical dimensions. The seat is 13" off the ground and the assembled toy is approximately 13" W x 33" L – making the rockers ideal for kids from ages 18-48 months. If you’ve been looking for the perfect rocker for your little one, or need a unique baby shower gift idea, be sure to check out Wee Rock Toy Co!

The Giveaway

I’m excited to share that one lucky reader will win the Wee Rock Toy Co. rocker of their choice ($300 value)! This giveaway is open to the lower 48 US states only, ages 18+ and runs through February 7, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. EST. To enter, simply complete the Rafflecopter form below. Good luck!

The Get out of Debt Project

17 January
So we are starting 2013 with a Get Out of Debt Plan. We hope to be debt free in a few years, its all in time. We did not get into debt over night and there’s no way we are going to get out of it over night.

But we are making a lot of changes and doing different things different ways to try to help us. As we set up these projects and different ways, I will be sharing what we are doing and how it’s working and if it works for us.

Our first plan is to use cash when possible and stop relying on our debit cards. They are too easy. So I am working on money envelopes to help us with the items we can pay cash for and start there. I still plan on paying bills online however eating out, misc buys, groceries, and other items will now be cash only items. If we are out and decide we want to eat out, if I don’t have the envelope on me for this, we are not going to do it.

Our second plan is to use our extra income, our 2nd jobs to go towards debt instead of our 'extras' like we have been. We have been using money from our account and our 2nd jobs for our 'wants', that’s time to stop. We have to start using this extra income as a way to help our debt ratio. So now when 31 commissions come in we will be putting it towards a credit card or unexpected bill that comes in.

Getting into this mind set will be huge for me. I was never really raised on a budget because my family like many lived week to week and paid what they could but always made sure we had food and shelter. There was no extra money to do much or buy much. When we did have a little extra, we spent it on what we wanted. I want to put that little extra towards something to get it gone and done, out of our debt spreadsheet.

I have the snowball spreadsheet on the computer, just need to plug everything in. I have different worksheets to keep us on track and of course I want to make up those money envelopes to help us.

We have no kids on formula and only one in diapers so our baby cost has gone way down than it was a year ago. We are getting closer to getting a few things paid off and we can see the light but its going to take a lot of hard work on our part.

We cannot wait to get to the point where we can begin working on our 'wants'. We have so many projects we would love to do but are waiting until the debt is gone before focusing on the other stuff. Hoping this new venture gets off the ground running and continues to make good habits for me, Kenny and the girls.

Heartbroken again…

16 January
Ugh…
Yesterday I gave up all my baby clothes to another little itty bitty baby that was born this past October. Baby Jolynn is at Ava and Hailey’s daycare and her mother had asked if I had any clothes for handmedowns. WELL YEEEESSS!!!
I have been fortunate enough to be given awesome high qualify handmedowns and also the things that I had bought for the girls. I have been talking about going through the girls clothes for months now, one because I didn’t have the time and two, because I knew I would be emotional with it. Its just another baby thing out of our house.  Another reminder of no more newborns.
It took a lot on Saturday to throw everything into the bags and look through to see what I wanted to keep for them. I kept their Easter dresses Aunt Gail have bought them and Christmas dresses plus a few special outfits like their coming home from the hospital and certain favorite cute ones I put them in.
Tuesday morning, Kenny loaded all 5 bags into my trunk and I dropped them off with the girls at Vickies house. I have 3 empty totes now, ready for size 4, 5, and 6 handmedowns or bargains that I catch at the end of seasons.
But its done. Hailey is in 18 months for winter, will probably be in 2T by summer and as she grows out of things, I will be passing them on to who needs them in our circle of friends with little ones or to baby Jolynn.
I know next time it will be a little easier. Adjusting to having 2 toddlers and no more little baby will be fixed soon enough when there are a lot of little babies around to hug and snuggle. There are like 4 people due in the spring. I will get all my little baby snuggles then.
We have so much coming up that I know one day I will be thankful to be out of the baby stage and not worrying about nap times or diapers. One day….
Until then, my heart will tug just a little as I watch my two little girls grow so fast.
