Wordless Wednesday

9:29 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma



Today is my Benji's 4th birthday! Yes, he is an April Fool's baby. Poor guy, he's going to grow up trying to prove to people that he's not fooling anyone and it really IS his birthday! I wish my birthday guy lots of love and super fun fourth year.


This pic is from his Chucky Cheese birthday party that we had for him on Sunday. He insisted on having an Imagination Movers cake. He loves those guys!

Edie Art Giveaway

10:41 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma


Edie Art is one of my latest and no doubt greatest Etsy finds. Edie Art sells original paintings, prints, pendants and more that are all designed by Edie. Edie is an extremely well traveled, self taught painter and musician. The art that Edie creates is predominately with bold and vibrant colors. Much of her art is figurative or imaginiative in expression and has a simplistic dream like quality about it, which is one of the reasons that I love her artwork. Edie Art is so versatile in nature because it can be used to decorate children's rooms, family rooms, livingrooms and more. The abstract fluidity of the pieces allow flexability of interpretation depending upon the theme of the room it is displayed in.

One of my favorite prints offered in her collection is the Mother with Baby pictured below. I love the abstract subtlety of this print. The colors are so beautifully blended together but the body of the mother and the baby are so clearly seen. This print could easily decorate a nursery or any other room in the house. The print itself is 5x7 and comes framed in a 8x10 off-white matt board. This wonderful print is available for$15.



As I mentioned earlier Edie Art also designs unique and artful pendants in addition to her paintings and prints. My favorite necklace is the Two Little Birds Necklace. The pendant is made of oven baked clay, hand painted with acrylics and then varnished for protection. It hangs from a 15" handmade copper chain and jump ring. This beautiful necklace is available for $29.



Edie Art is a shop for the true art lover. The dedication and inspiration that goes into each piece shows in its style and beauty. Edie Art has a great selection of original paintings, prints, pendants, magnets and even a few sculptures. Edie Art also does custom orders and commissioned peices. Please go visit Edie Art for some awe inspiring original paintings, prints, pendants and more.


Edie Art is offering all Pretty Pink Momma readers free shipping on any order from now until April 6th. Just add Pretty Pink Momma in the notes to the seller. Please take advantage of this great offer before it ends!


One lucky Pretty Pink Momma reader has the chance to win one print of their choosing from the Edie Art collection!

Dana Laymon Photography Giveaway

3:10 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma


Spring is back and we all know what that means, Spring cleaning. Well this year I think that we should put a little twist on it. Clean up an area most don't even consider. Have you ever noticed your walls? I for one love to put up beautiful photos and art but never have the time or the money to look for some unique and one of a kind finds. Its pretty sad that we have lived in our house now for almost three years and there are still plenty of bare naked walls, just crying for some art love.

If you are like me and your walls are seriously being neglected then I urge you to check out Dana Laymon Photography, my latest featured shop on Etsy. Dana has some of the most beautiful, simple and unique 8x10 prints that I have ever seen. As of late all the Etsy shops featured have been veterans but Dana Laymon Photography is new to Etsy so its time that she received some Etsy love. As a bonus if you become the very first person to purchase a print from Dana she will include free shipping! Very nice!

As I said the prints offered at Dana Laymon Photography have a simplistic beauty about each of them. What I have not mentioned is how very affordable her prints are. An 8x10 print costs only $15. If you want them matted, which is what I would personally do, it will only cost an extra $3 for a total of $18. If you are looking to have your art framed, matted and ready to go it will only cost a mere $32. You can't buy most mats and frames without the picture for that price! I have chosen a couple of favorites of mine to share with everyone. The first pictured below is Mexican Porch. I love pictures of Mexican architecture and surroundings so this one really caught my eye. Also pictured below is my other fav, Lonely Tree. I also love to decorate my walls with pictures from nature. This lone tree looks so awesome in the dusk.




If your looking to spruce up your walls, please go check out Dana Laymon Photography. Remember, the first person to purchase from her will receive free shipping. You know how I love free shipping!

Win It!
One lucky Pretty Pink Momma reader will recieve their choice of any 8x10 print offered at Dana Laymon Photography.

Here's how to win: Visit Dana Laymon Photography and look through the items offered. Post a comment here telling me what print you would choose if you were the winner. Open to US residents only.

eBeanstock Where Have You Been?

9:33 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma




I have recently been introduced to eBeanstock, a company focused on educational toys and products that are matched to the developmental stages of children rather than specifically just by age. This is such a great site with wonderful information for parents about the different develpomental stages that your children will go through. eBeanstalk is a place where you can find expert selected newborn and baby toys, toddler toys and toys for a preschooler, which is excellent for gift giving. An awesome gift idea is that some of their learning toys are packaged into a GIFT SERIES, where every three months a new gift arrives that is perfectly suited the appropriate stage of a child’s development.

They have two teams that help decide the best toys to offer in their selection. The first is a team of child experts including a Child Psychologist, Speech Pathologist, Child Physical Therapist, Pediatric Occupational Therapist and a Special Educator. You can find out the FAQs about each of these specialists by clicking on their Expert Advice tab. The second team is a group of over 700 moms that they lovingly refer to as the "mother board". The MotherBoard acts as their nationwide 'governing body' — playing with the toys, rating each and every toy on the site, and providing valuable feedback.

eBeanstock has looked at over 10,000 toys from well known manufacturers around the world and narrowed it down to 600 of the best toys that are carefully selected and tested before being given the eBeanstock seal of approval.

eBeanstock's Child Specialists have identified the stages of development children grow through. They matched 7 core skills (called Head-to-Toe) - Imagination, Education, Language, Dexterity, Locomotion, Emotion and Social – with the stages of a child’s development to provide a simple, focused explanation of each stage. They then carefully matched each learning toy with the appropriate stage of development. No more “for a child 2 and up”. Their toys are matched to 3 month incremental stages.

As a mother of children with developmental delays, I think that this company is wonderful. They can cater specifically to the delay of the child in the toy selection process. All three of my children have developmental delays. Each of them plays with toys very differently than the others. At eBeanstock I can visit the Developmental Delays section and choose toys based on the stage of development that I am looking to improve. A feature that I think is awesome is the ability to contact an expert and receive expert advice about which toys to choose based on the delays. This is such a great reference tool for parents and those who wish to purchase a gift for a child with a delay.

Another excellent reason to visit eBeanstock is for all of the great articles and wealth of information that you can read in their Experts Advice section. The Experts, using their collective knowledge and experience, create graduated play ideas for each toy, author the eBeanstalk instruction cards (sent with each toy purchased), answer great FAQs, and much, much more.

My overall impression of eBeanstock and their site is a big thumbs up. eBeanstock is a great place to research and purchase educational and learning toys for the little ones in your life.

If you are interested in visiting eBeanstock they are offering a 15% discount for Pretty Pink Momma readers. Just enter the code TGS345 in your shopping cart to recieve the discount. This discount is only valid until June 30, 2009.

Not Me Monday #3

11:42 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma



Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

Hubby totally checked majority of his Honey-Do list off this weekend so I am totally not happy about that!

One of the major items on Hubby's list was to fix Emilio's crib. Now I can start letting him take naps there and then I am so not excited to transition him from my room to his own.

I am still not thrilled that Benji is doing well with potty training. Even if he takes forever to wash his hands because he is so enamored with looking at himself in the mirror. He is not like his mother at all, not at all.

I am not sad because I will be away for the rest of the day and I won't be able to catch up and comment on my favorite blogs.

I am also not enjoying having my mom visiting the next couple of weeks from Phoenix. It is not nice to be able to run errands and have someone else watch the kids. It is also not nice having someone around to talk to that will help clean up and cook dinner. I do not really love my mommy :)

Five Thing Friday #2

12:55 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma




Its Five Thing Friday again! Time to list five facts about yourself. I hope that you will play along! Just grab the Five Thing Friday button off my left sidebar. Leave a comment and let me know if you participate so I can go check out your blog!

1. I love VH1 reality TV. I can't help myself. VH1 airs their shows all the time so its easy for me to catch again if I miss it one day.

2. I make some seriously spicy and delicious beef tacos. It has taken awhile but my recipe is now perfected. Its sooo darn good that I have thought about doing a post about it.

3. I wish I spoke spanish. I know some stuff but not enough to have a true conversation. My husband won't teach me or my kids because he's more comfortable speaking english than spanish.

4. I am a perfectionist. I try to do everything as perfect as possible. When things aren't perfect I can freak out a little bit. Just a little bit.

5. I need a pedicure really badly. I have not had one since before Emilio was born, so its going on almost a year. I refuse to show my feet in public until I get one.

It is 7.5" long and features topaz colored Swarovski crystals that are set in silver toned 2 hole slides. The slides are joined by silverplated tube beads, and the piece is finished with a magnetic clasp that also has inset topaz colored Swarovski crystals. The design of the clasp allows for the bracelet to be reversable so you can change the appearance of the bracelet to fit whatever style your rocking that day. This stunning bracelet is available for a mere $12.00, what a steal!



My other favorite pick is the pair of Color Change Quartz earrings. The Color change Quartz rondelles are nestled between silver plated spacers, and suspended on Sterling silver French hook ear wires. The Quartz changes from a pale blue to a pale lavender, depending on the kind of light. These earrings are simply elegant and are available for only $12.00.

The Hubby, if he were a paid sitter - he' d be fired!

12:01 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma

Ordinarily my hubby is a really funny, charming, hot guy and all around great dad. When the man is tired, which is everyday, he can be harder to deal with than the kids. Let me set up the scene and share last nights babysitting debocle.

Hubs normally leaves for work at about 6 am and then does not return home until anywhere between 7-9 pm, usually 8pm though. Last night was no exception. I had all these grand plans that I was going to have dinner all ready to go, eat quickly and leave to run a few errands for myself. Which I knew was borderline impossible considering everything I wanted to do pretty much closed at 9 anyways, but I was determined to try.

After all is said and done I finally leave at around 8:40, just enough time to run one of my errands. I go, take care of my stuff, come back about 35-40 minutes later and remember why I stopped taking these small trips in the evening.

I didn't want to dig around the bottom of my purse to find my keys so I rang the doorbell. The doorbell should be a sure indication of my arrival home, so if in fact my husband is sleeping on the couch that should be his warning to sit up and play like he was paying attention the entire time I was gone. This was not the case.

While waiting at the door I could see inside through the window to the right. I look in anxiously waiting for someone to come to the door. To my surprise little Benji comes running, COMPLETELY NAKED, yelling "Mommy's home!". He opens the door for me, my mouth agape, with a look of just complete joy. Mind you he has only been potty trained for a couple of weeks, he is jumping and running around telling me how he was going to go potty but some got in his underwear so when he was done on the pot he decided to strip. Why he took his shirt off, I'm not really sure that I want to know the answer to that one. So naturally I tell him to get some clothes on and more importantly WASH HIS HANDS!

So, you would think that at any point during this display of nudity that my hubby would show up. Nope. So I ask, "what is your Daddy doing?" to which both boys reply "sleeping!" He was sleeping on the couch, with the baby just sitting next to him and my oldest son captivated by TV watching Ben 10. So I obviously see whats going on and our conversation went a little something like this:

Me: Are you even watching the kids?
Him: Yes! I was not sleeping!
Little Oscar pipes in: Yes he was.
Me: Would you like to explain to me why Benji is running around everywhere naked?
Him: What!

Anyways, long story short, if he was a babysitter he would be fired. This is why I can't leave the house unless my hubs is well rested. Even though I have not had a solid nights sleep in almost a year this crap never happens to me!

Five Thing Friday!

1:52 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma

Photobucket

I decided to start my own meme. I know its a little late in the day, but that's how I roll. The basis behind Five Thing Friday is that I really enjoy learning about everyone through the blogs that I read. I think that the more I get to know you all the more I have in common with you and therefore it makes me want to read your blog more. My hope is that others will play along and let me read a little more about them. Its easy to play along so please do and leave a comment for me if you did. I will definitely visit your blog and check it out.

Just list Five Things about yourself or whatever in your life that people might not know about you. That's it! Here are my Five Things:

1. I have been married for 6.5 years.

2. I met my hubby in high school but he was a "G Wanna Be" and he had a girlfriend at the time so I kept him in the friend zone.

3. I love, love, love mexican food or pretty much any spanish dish.

4. I am a SAHM/WAHM during the week but on the weekends I work. It comes out to about six days a month in total. I know, weird, I have a life outside my home.

5. I work at a high end car dealership. Since I was sixteen I have worked in the car business. Need any tips on buying a car? I can help.


Well, there's my Five Thing Friday. I hope at least one person will join in on my fun and share Five Things with me!

Lorijoz Unique Handmade Children's Gifts

11:52 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma





I am pleased to be kicking off EtsyPalooza with this wonderful shop! Lorijoz has the cutest handmade accessories that I have seen in a long time. Just looking at some of the adorable hairclips and bows make me wish, once again, for a little girl to dress up. Her hair clips and accessories are also great to put in dolls hair so your little girl can have a clip that matches her doll too. She has a ton of ribbon and design options so if you don't see exactly what you want you can ask her to create a custom design just for you! Many of her hair accessory items are one of a kind, so if you check out her shop and see something that you like you may not want to wait to purhcase it. Someone may beat you to the punch! Everything that she offers is extremely affordable and reasonably priced.

In addition to hair accessories Lorijoz has started to create new line of Mommy Wristlet Key Fobs and Mini Key Fobs. These are great gifts to give to teachers, friends or just about any trendy gal. To kick off her new line she is offering for a limited time all Key Fobs are buy 3 get one of equal or lesser value free. The key fobs are so chic! Believe me, they really come in handy when your hands are full and you don't feel like searching for your keys at the bottom of your purse (like I have to do).




In admiration of Pretty Pink Momma readers Lorijoz is offering a Wristlet Key Fob, like the ones pictured above, to one lucky reader. Its too bad that I am hosting this giveaway or I would enter it myself! I need one of those key fobs pretty badly!

Here's how: Open to US and Canada only

Two Ways to Find the Best Internet Deals

1:11 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma

I love to find a great deal, I mean who doesn't right? Especially if I am buying something online I look for the absolute best deal because I hate paying for shipping. It is a neccessary evil of finding great stuff online. I feel that if I can score a great coupon that may severely reduce or cancel out the shipping than I have done my job as a savvy internet shopper. I have recently discovered a couple of ways to get some great deals on stuff that I thought I would share with all of you.

The first one is Beat My Price. I received an email the other day from Naomi at BeatMyPrice.com. This is what she had to say:

I enjoy reading your blog and wanted to alert you to a helpful resource that your readers (and you) might find useful.

People often remember to look for coupons, but then forget that with an extra few seconds, they can do a price comparison search to be sure they truly are getting the best deal. BeatMyPrice.com is a revolutionary new price comparison site from the creators of RetailMeNot.com. It works differently because every search helps the site to grow, so the more people use it, the bigger it gets. Second, it incorporates RetailMeNot coupons into the results, offering deeper discounts.

Again, thought you might want to pass it along to your readers, if not, definitely check it out for yourself. If you have any questions about how the site works, here’s a link to a video tutorial. Feel free to call or email if you have any additional questions.

Thanks,
Naomi

Naomi Evarts for BeatMyPrice.com


I did go check it out and it is pretty cool. You do have to know exactly what you are looking for, I chose a Wii Fit (cause I really want one), it pulled up all the options and showed which ones had coupons for shipping or discounts. I definitely think that this site is going to take off big. It is simple to use and so great that it matches coupon deals with the searches. A big time saver!


The other one I have been testing out is Swagbucks. This is a search engine that you can earn digital dollars called "Swagbucks" to redeem in the Swag Store foe exclusive Swagbucks.com products.

How it works:

First you have to install the Swagbucks toolbar.

Then you start searching. You will recieve results from Google and Ask.com.

Earn Swagbucks. It is super easy. I have been using this search engine as test for only one week. I have earned 15 Swagbucks all ready. Basically the more you search the more you earn. You can earn Swagbucks for doing more than just searching but I'm pretty lazy so I'll stick with the searching for now.

When you have earned enough Swagbucks just visit the Swag Store to redeem.

Now I definitely think that Google itself is a better search engine, Swagbucks isn't that bad. It has become my primary search engine. I figure if I am going to be searching the web that at least I can earn something for doing it. They do have a lot of smaller prizes like iTunes downloads but I would rather hold out for the best stuff from the Swag Store which does require a lot of Swagbucks, but I figure by Christmas I will have enough to get myself something nice!

Let me know what you think of these sites or if you have all ready tried them and have an opinion I would love to hear it.

Wordless Wednesday #2

8:48 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma



I snapped this picture of my boys sleeping together last week. They have twin beds next to each other in the room that they share. Little Benji was having trouble staying in bed that night and the last time we put him back in bed that night we told he better stay upstairs. I went to go check on him a few minutes later and this is what I saw. He was all curled up next to his big brother! How cute! So I of course had to use my new bad ass camera to capture the moment. I took this pic with the lights off but the flash is so awesome that it looks like I turned the lights on.

Not Me Monday #3

9:30 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma



My hubby had to go back to work this week, his vacation is over, I am not missing him all ready. I am also not happy to have "my space" back again!

I have not had to spend the last three days cleaning up nighttime potty accidents.

I am so completely happy because my brother and his family did not come over and spend Sunday with our family. Also, my awesome brother did not fix my extremely annoying printer problems I have been having while he was visiting.

I have not had to battle a little bit of a head cold the last couple of days.

My son said he was sick this morning so I did not let him stay home from school, only to discover that he was probably faking it.

It is not snowing outside right now!

Squirrel Cheeks Boutique Giveaway!

7:25 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma



I love finding really unique, custom made items, especially when they are super affordable! When Tanya from Squirrel Cheeks Boutique invited me to check out what she has to offer I was pleasantly surprised. Squirrel Cheeks Boutique makes and sells custom knit hats, outfits, shirts, skirts, aprons and tutu's. That is just to name a few, they also create custom pillowcase dresses, hand painted clothes and jeans with ruffles on them. All items are handmade, boutique quality and super cute! Each item comes with a boutique hang tag. My four year old neice would love an apron or a tutu for sure. I can just see her now, having the time of her life pretending to cook or dance around in a custom tutu.

The best thing about being able to order a custom made clothing item is that Squirrel Cheeks Boutique is able to make an article of clothing from newborn to preteen. There is something for everyone at Squirrel Cheeks Boutique.

Another thing that Squirrel Cheeks Boutique likes to offer customers is hard to find toys. Right now they have a rare collection of Club Penguin toys in stock. These are really adorable!


Squirrel Cheeks Boutique is offering one lucky Pretty Pink Momma reader one custom article of clothing!

Required Entry: Visit Squirrel Cheeks Boutique and comment back on this post what custom item you would like made for you - be specific! Any custom item that she mentions, not only just what is pictured, is available to win.

It's Been So Long!

12:15 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma

It has been so long since I have posted that I thought that I should get something up! This last week has been a little crazy for me. My hubby was home so that always changes up the routine and I am totally done, well not totally but almost, with potty training Benji. I have also been working on getting my business website up and going too. I just have only had time to respond to emails, work on upcoming giveaways and reviews and read an occassional blog or two. Next week things will be back to normal so I have a lot of great things planned. There will be a lot of posting going on!

I also have not had time to read and comment on my favorite blogs this week, but I plan to get all caught up next week.

Also, don't forget to enter the My Plate-Mate giveaway. It ends tonight. I will post a new giveaway tomorrow - you won't want to miss this one!

More tomorrow!

Totally Talented Tuesday

10:57 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma



This meme was started by Dee at Two of Kind Working on a Fullhouse. To learn about the rules and read about others playing along with this fun meme go check her blog out. Okay, this is my first time doing Totally Talented Tuesday, so here goes!

I know that my entire subject matter lately has been about the toilet but anyone that has ever had to deal with potty training - especially boys - knows that what is going in (or sometimes not in) the toilet is a major concern that consumes daily life. You alter your schedule, routines and trips anywhere just to continue with the ongoing progress.

So, naturally my Totally Talented Tuesday will involve Benji successfully completing his first whole day weariing undies! He was a little upset at first but we were able to meet in the middle when he discoverd the Lightning McQueen pair. He only had one #2 accident but all in all pretty good because there were absoulutely no potty accidents! He even stayed dry all night and went potty in the toilet this morning! I am so proud.



Now on to my second talent: Little Oscar is learning to read! He has some site words that he has learned but he read eight different short paragraphs to me. Nearly perfect. I was super impressed. It is so exciting seeing your children accomplish huge milestones. I can't wait to see what else he will come up with next!

Not Me Monday # 2

1:03 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma



I am not so totally happy that my Hubby is vacation this week!

I did not have to drive my son to school because I missed getting him on the school bus this morning due to the fact that I was not too busy reading some blogs!

I am not so excited about Benji wearing underwear for the first time today! Not nervous about potential messes either...

I did not spend this morning slacking off instead of cleaning.

If you want to join in on the Not Me Monday fun you can read the rules here and then begin

My Plate-Mate Giveaway

1:52 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma



One thing that I am constantly doing is cleaning my kitchen table off. No matter how many times I clean it, my two boys are always spilling food off of their plate onto my nice "clean" table. To make matters worse, if for some reason I haven't been johnny on the spot with keeping it clean, I freak out if they eat the food that fell on the table. Maybe I wouldn't think that it is such a big deal if they didnt have a passion for putting disgusting things up there like dirty socks, boogie wipes, glue, leftover sucker sticks, and whatever else they found on the ground that day. I am a self proclaimed germaphobe so I was really happy when Michelle from My Plate-Mate shared her product with me.

My Plate-Mate is a first of its kind toddler product geared to make life and meal time easier for families. The unique design of the My Plate-Mate enables toddlers to scoop their food up and onto their utensils with ease. The abitlity to self-scoop with ease promotes independence and minimizes the frustrations that can come with learning to self feed. Doubling as a spill guard, My Plate-Mate, minimizes the mess that can be left over on the table and the floor. This also means that there will be less food that is wasted. I don't know about you but I cringe when I think about how much food on a daily basis my kids waste.

My Plate-Mate is designed to fit on any 8" to 9.5" round plate. It is made in the USA, out of FDA approved food grade plastic. It is free of any lead, bisphenol-A (BPA), phthalates, PVC and polycarbonates. It is easy to clean and dishwasher safe. It is also extremely easy to take on the go for eating at restraunts or other outings.

You can purchase a single My Plate-Mate for only $7.95 or a set of three for only $18.95. I think that I will need to get the set because I have three little messy guys and I need all the help I can get! Not to mention the time saver of constantly cleaning my table and floor.

My Plate-Mate is giving one lucky Pretty Pink Momma reader their very own My Plate-Mate!
