Time to work it out, Crazy style!

This cartoon says it all, its true! I decided to post this before working out...
1 hour later, I'm entering giveaways again!

Anywho, its Monday and the start to my very own Multiple Options Workout (MOW!)

1. Do P90X with hubby
2. I'll go walk around the block twice with my neighbor.

3. I'll jog around the block twice

4. During my sons nap I can do Jillian Micheals 30day shred dvd

5. Do Winsor Pilates 20min workout dvd

Now we have options!
but I figured if I get at least 2 done per day
I will feel great about my accomplishments.

I want to do this for 30days and see how my results are.

O dear how I'm going to suffer...but I wont DIEt

Giani Granite Review and our kitchen transformation!

Giani Granite Countertop Paint Review

Oh my goodness this kitchen was a piece of hard work...
Of course when we first bought this house, we hit the ground running.

We ripped all the wallpaper off first, then sanded and painted the cabinets.
Bought all new appliances (found in the clearance/returned items section in Lowes)
Then we painted the walls tealish blue. See where that wall paper border is, we painted from there down a dark brown :)

Then the slow down came, a baby was born
I say slow down but really its a race now, but it was a slow down on home improvements
2plus years later we still need a vent over our oven.
Worst of all the countertops needed an update or replacement.
They had scratches and stains all over!
but thanks to Giani
a miracle happened!
We now have brand new gorgeous countertops!

well everyone thinks they are new but they are the same countertops.
How can this be?

Look at that before and after picture! Wow!
I must say that Giani Granite is the best thing you can do to your kitchen!

The kit covered my entire kitchen plus there was extra!

The kit comes with everything even a roller!
Now you might have to buy caulk to replace the old caulk.
I didn't have to, all I needed was painters tape

You can purchase this kit for only $69.95!!
Seriously you save hundreds even thousands of dollars by using this kit
instead of buying a new countertop

Read the reviews on Giani Granites website
Check out their Facebook page, they have many real before and after photos like mine

They even have step by step how to videos, plus detailed instructions with your kit
which they also include a cd to watch too!

I love this product! I recieved numerous compliments on my "new" countertops.
My Aunt wants me to come do her countertops next!

*I was not compensated for this review. This is my honest opinion.
Giani Granite generously gave me a kit for review and I'm so thankful they did!*

Chunky Pets Puzzle Book Review

I recently received the Chunky Pets Puzzle from Educational Toys Planet.

The puzzle includes a small board book in the center.
That was the first thing my son went for!
He loves books and was really excited that this book had a puppy on it.
The animals are very colorful, and easy to grasp.
The puzzle is made of thick wood for easy handling and durability.
Now I'm making it sound like a Ford Truck commercial.
Seriously though if it wasn't built "Ford Though"
it wouldn't have lasted 10minutes with my 2yr. old.

You can buy the Chunky Pets Puzzle for $14.97 at Educational Toys Planet

Another thing it that Educational Toy Planet has a fantastic
rating under each toy noting what skills this toy provides.
The Chunky Pets Puzzle has skills for Manipulative Skills (the good kind of manipulation, hehe), Concentration, and Animals

*I was provided no compensation for this review*

How you can help Japan

What to do?
These beautiful places are now destroyed, a beautiful country is in panic.
What can we do about it?
When Haiti was in need, we sent food and water to them.
Japan is across the world...
The salvation army has requested to donate money, because it is too expensive to ship all the food and water needed.

Please pray for these wonderful people, I pray they will find our Savior and a new faith.
I pray they will find miracles, people that are alive and the water they need.
I pray that every child will find their way back into their parents arms.
Pray with me please.
You can donate at

What's your favorite print?

I've never been a fan of animal prints, but recently I've been loving certain crib bedding with giraffe print on it. I think I have finally found my favorite safari animal!

My son has this giraffe in his room, I love that giraffe!
My love for giraffe print probably occurred
when I spent 2 hours decorating my son's birthday cake.

My favorite crib bedding is from
isn't it cute!

What is your favorite animal print?

Car rides and birthday parties!

What a ride!
Here's the thing, I own a VW Rabbit and a Great Dane.
We are selling it to get an suv, but in the mean time...
My dog had to go on her honeymoon.
We had to borrow our Grandparents van and pick up my husband from work.
We were running late so we didn't have time to pick up the van
and drive back to pick up the dog.

We had to ride 20 minutes with my dog in the front seat.
My husband in the back with my son.
and me laughing hysterically
but at the same time yelling at the dog not to lay on the gear shift!
