Sponsored by Tomoson.com First of all I have followed the Pink Dandy blog for a LONG time. It was just recently I realized that she owned her own company. Pink Dandy has lots of cool stuff for the body. We all like to pamper ourselves and these are the way to do that.
I received a full size Whipped Satin Luxury Hand and Body Cream in none other than the Birthday Cake scent and She also included 2 samples of the Hand and Body Cream. One is marked Pina Colada and the other isn't marked. I can't tell what it is either.
Here is the list of her Scents!
Price: The whipped body cream is 4oz and is $7.50! THIS IS AWESOME and super competitive to even the most wanted brands. It's a great price.
Overall: ***** love this cream!

We got rid of Bella yesterday. It was time for her to go. She just was not a good fit for our family.
She had begun to refuse anything I said to her. She was dependent on Jon and wouldn't eat or drink unless he was home, which was causing her UTI's (4 this year alone) she wasn't flushing herself out. She seemed depressed when he wasn't home.
He would get home, we would watch a movie or he would do homework and then he would be in bed in about 3 hours, it wasn't enough time for her to eat or drink much. She was eating about 5 cups a day and drinking about 8-10. At this point she was lucky to get in 2cups of each every day. I fed and watered her every morning. She would have a couple sips of water and not even touch her food. She would also force herself to throw up 3-4 times a week.
I was just getting sick of it. Any time I told her something she would turn her head as if she didn't hear me. I could tell her something 4 times, Jon would snap her fingers and she'd do what I asked of her. She was just becoming stressful and making my anxiety worse and it was time to go!!
ON a happier note... We're going out of town this weekend. You all know we take a trip up to my Grandma's house every summer. Well we're going this weekend. We're leaving Friday early afternoon and coming home Tuesday morning. Since it's a Holiday and Jon normally has Monday's off, he gets Friday off this time AND he has 1 day of leave to take before the 1st, so he's taking Tuesday so we can beat all traffic and come home then.
Sunday is my birthday, if we go to the Casino I get $100 free spending money, but I DON'T want to go. We spend money we don't really have and it's not really fun anymore... but we'll see.
There's also Hartwick Pines about an hour north of my Grandma and we might do that as well. It's a State Park so we get in free with our park pass.
That's about it. A weekend away and no dog to deal with.
We'll probably have to tell my grandma we're expecting this weekend too. We'll see how that goes I guess!!
So no new posts for 5 days. Can you all handle that? Will you be okay? And winner's will be pulled Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning.
What are your plans for Memorial Day?

Three heroes, all on missions of mercy, who discover that God not only saves us from evil, but from the darkness inside.
Point of No Return: Can God deliver us from our mistakes? This question is posed to Chet and Mae as they race to save Mae’s nephew from an evil warlord in the Republic of Georgia. More here.
Mission: Out of Control: Does God turn his back on us when we fail? Brody and Vonya discover the answer as they conspire to capture an international smuggler and free a child soldier from war. More here.
Undercover Pursuit: What if we deliberately sin and harbor bitterness in our hearts? Is there a rescue from the dark places inside? Luke and Scarlett find out as they work to protect a bride-turned-informant whose courage could dismantle a human trafficking web. More here.

Mission: Out of Control: Brody "Wick" Wickham is a former Green Beret turned security agent-with a 100 percent mission success rate. No way is his new assignment changing that. Even if it's protecting a diva American rock star while she's on tour in Europe . Except Veronica "Vonya" Wagner isn't just a beautiful celebrity used to having her way-she's the daughter of a U.S. Senator. And she's hiding a dangerous secret. When Wick discovers what's at stake, how far over the line will he go to keep them both alive?
| || |
Undercover Pursuit: The only way to get security agent Luke Dekker to a wedding? An undercover mission as groomsman. He'll bust the groom, a drug cartel heir, before anyone can say "I do." Then Luke can escape all this love and romance nonsense-and the too pretty bridesmaid/agent assigned as his "fiancée" for the weekend. Until Luke discovers that sweet, vulnerable Scarlett Hanson isn't his contact. Isn't an agent.

I feel so huge! I really hope this is all bloat and that I'll still be about the same size come 14-15 weeks too! I know starting next week this will all disappear and then at about 12-13 weeks baby will start growing. Since baby's the size of a Green Olive (yum), I know it's all bloat!
I'm starting to round out though and I'm not so pointy anymore!
I received the Teal Envy Push Up Hoop Halter & Hoop Scoop bathing suit from Voda Swim. I LOVE my new bathing suit. I 'ordered' it right before finding out I was pregnant, but I'm glad I chose a Push Up Bikini because I know it will fit me even while I'm pregnant.
No, you do not get to see me in it. SORRY! I know how disappointed you all are :)
Price: The set I received is $127. I think this is a little pricey, but it is a good quality suit.

I also love that it's alcohol free, so when Avery sucks her fingers at night I know she's not getting alcohol. It protects you for 24 hours OR 10 hand washings!! YES 10... One squirt in the morning is all I need for all day (of course I use more). But even if I use it 5 times in a day and Avery uses it a few it's not really going anywhere. One pump foams up like crazy and it's hardly using any of the solution at all.
It's silica based so it doesn't dry out your hands.
And the 1.5 oz is good for 120 applications!! Prefense protects against staph, strep, E.coli, drug resistant MRSA strains, and more.
It was really nice to use. Rubs in nicely and isn't sticky, stinky or too wet. It rubs in all the way and is dry very fast.
They also offer an 8oz container which is good for about 636 applications!!!! It would easily last a year! They also carry hand sanitizing wipes!
Price: The 1.5oz is $6.99, 8oz is $16.99. It's a little pricier then others, but the no alcohol is a huge feature and it will last a long time.
Prefense has offered one Mommy Of 1 and Counting reader the chance to win an 8oz sanitizer
What's your favorite feature of Prefense?
Dora's Garden Gazebo from Mega Bloks for review. The review was due by May 9th, but that was Avery's birthday and I wanted to save it until then, so she agreed to let me wait a few days to write the review.
As soon as I got the toy in the mail, I thought the package was small and it certainly couldn't be quite that entertaining. I was wrong! Avery loves it to pieces.
GIVEAWAY IS OPEN TO RESIDENTS OF THE U.S. AND CANADA ONLY

Zoey's Attic. I love all of her shirts, but her Big Sister To Be shirts are what I had my eye on.
The day after I found out I was pregnant I contacted her. She was so happy to send me a shirt and she went to work.
I told her to send either the Pink Love Bug shirt in a 4T on Pink OR the Whimsy Birds I'm Going to be a Big Sister OR lastly the Big Sister to be Owl.
She sent me the Pink Love Bug and I'm so happy with it!!!
It's a 4t, but it's a unisex style shirt so It's really wide. I rubberband the bottom corner of it to make it smaller and it works for now. At least I know it will fit her until December!
There's lots to choose from
