I’m Back!!


With recent and VERY FRUSTRATING problems with my host over on my other site, it will be down for maintenance for the foreseeable future. Thus, I will be using this site again!! I’m happy because in getting swept up with the gleam of my own .com, I’ve forgotten about my baby. My first site, and this is sad! I should have been utilizing it all along, but c’est la vie!

Now to get all my posts in order. First up…Activity Sheets from the New Film MALEFICENT!!

 

Thank you for reading along and sharing with your friends and family! I love each and every single one of you for that!!

Review and Giveaway by: Elitemama
Jewelry Candles was inspired by the famous classic movie, Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. A great classic movie that everyone has pretty much seen. The people at the company love the movie and thought that it would be awesome to do their own Willie Wonka type concept. Instead of having golden tickets inside of a chocolate bar, you will find jewelry in these all natural soy candles. With Jewelry Candles, everyone is a winner =) Inside of all the candles there is a hidden jewel that can be worth anywhere from $10 to $7,500. In the candle you could find a ring, necklace, pendant, bracelet, anklet, or even a pair of earrings. You never know what you will find in your candle, but it will always be a fabulous piece of jewelry.

Jewelry Candles are made with 100% natural soy and premium quality fragrances making these candles smell amazing. There are LOTS of scents to choose from. The candles are huge! They are 21 oz and have a burn time anywhere from 110 hours to 150 hours so you get a lot of bang and fragrance for your buck. Each candle is hand poured with love from Louisville, Kentucky.

Review:
I was excited to have the opportunity to review one of the lovely Candles from Jewelry Candles. Not only was I excited, I was was practically jumping up and down like a kid in a candy store, lol. My kids even looked at me funny as well. So, I got to choose a candle and I chose the Pink Love candle. Now before I go on about the candle, I want to let all of you know about the shipping. The shipping was excellent. The candle arrived extremely fast, I mean in like less than 2 days fast. And the best part was the packaging. When it came to the packaging, that candle was sealed and protected. I mean it was covered in so much bubble wrap, the candle could have made it though a battle, lol. It was great. That right there shows that Jewelry Candles takes care of there products and wants their customers to be completely satisfied.
Here is the lovely candle
Originally the label on the candle was covering the area where the jewelry “marker” is, but I moved it so you can get a visual of where to expect your jewelry when you get your candle. It doesn’t always end up in the same place as mine happened to be. It could be a bit higher.
The candle has to wicks so it gives you a nice even burn. No need to worry about the candles tunneling through one side leaving the other side waxy, lol. The smell of the candle when it is burning is so relaxing and calm. I love it and there is no harsh or pungent odor either when it is being burned.
And now, for the best part. Are you ready? Lookie =)
As you can see in one part of the photo the foil is peaking through the wax. That is when you are ready to open your prize. I got this lovely heart shaped ring. It fits perfect with the candles. And I’m letting you know this ahead of time, the jewelry is top knotch. I have a scensitivity to jewelry causing me to break out, but with the ring that I got in my candle, I had no issues at all. I even wore the ring for three days straight to see if I would have a reaction and nothing. So you know right then and there that Jewelry Candles uses high quality jewelry in their candles along with a high quality candle =) Once you have tried Jewelry Candles, you will be hooked.

I’m A “Bad Mommy”! Are You?


This week my friend Angela at Written By Mama shared a picture on her Facebook. Here is said image:

Not on Angela’s page, but on the original posting people were getting up in arms about others choices. Why? That makes no sense. It’s your life, your child and how you raise them is your choice. The comments turned into people bashing others, and calling each other “Bad Mommies” for their decisions in parenting. Most comments are directed at the woman pictured, who circumcised her son. Well that made me think…so here it is.

The reasons I am a “Bad Mommy”:

  • I had a PLANNED C-SECTION and I CHOSE THAT METHOD. My Husband, OB and I discussed all options, and I chose what I was most comfortable with. Case closed.
  • Jp IS circumcised. John and I chose that option, and I don’t feel I need to justify my decision to anyone.
  • Jp was exclusively FORMULA FED. My body did not produce any breast milk. He is happy, healthy, and that’s all that matters. Either way, it was my decision.
  • Jp stays up as late as he wants. Right now a set bedtime turns into a fight. I’m a SAHM, so why freak out if he’s not in bed by 9??  More time together anyways!
  • I let him watch Family Guy. So?! Stewie cracks him (and me) up!
  • He eats WAY too much cheese. He won’t drink milk, so I take is as a trade-off.
  •  He eats things off the floor past the 5 second rule!  He may drop a chicken nugget and not come back to it for 20 minutes, but it will be there waiting for him when he’s ready. As my Nanny would say” God made dirt, and dirt don’t hurt!!”
  • Jp says bad words. His first full sentence was “I shit again.” and I LAUGHED! It was funny.
  • We do follow the pediatricians recommendations for vaccinations. Jp is up to date and has gotten a FLU Shot every year since he was born.

The point is, We all raise our children differently. Why can’t we just celebrate the fact that we are Mom’s and all in this crazy adventure together? Why do some feel the need to attack others over their decisions? It’s just not necessary.

That is why I support my fellow “Bad Mommies” and wear our badge with pride. Jp is a Happy Little Man who showers me with hugs and kisses. He loves to cuddle in my lap, and is leaning on my shoulder as I type this.  He is NEVER neglected, and always has what he needs. My sole purpose in life is to take care of him and make him happy and when he shows me love it lets me know that I’m doing something right. I know that NO MATTER WHAT He loves me and knows that I only make the best decisions for him.

So, are you a “Bad Mommy”? Feel free to comment below!
