May is Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month

Just in time for summer comes a reminder to protect your skin from the sun and its rays!

I personally have some of the pastiest, whitest skin around and am proud of it! As one of my daughter's shirts says, "Pale is the new tan!"

Please take the time to watch this heart felt video.

Say it with me, "Pale is the New Tan!!!!!"

Special Thank You - 3 Little Princess Tutus

Jennifer of 3 Little Princess Tutus was generous enough to sponsor in another giveaway I entered. I won a pair of baby leggings! So cute! I chose black with white stars so that they could be unisex. 

Jennifer has quite a variety of items available. She's kind and quick to respond. I encourage everyone to check out her shop! You can also find her on facebook!

Special Thank You - Willow Branch Boutique

We won a headband recently from Teresa of Willow Branch Boutique. Teresa wrote back when she found out what we'd be using the headband for and said she'd been part of Relay in the past and would send a few extras along for the Gift Baskets. She did and they are all awesome! Some little girl is going to be very lucky when we have our drawing at our event in July!

So check out Willow Branch Boutique for really cute hair pretties!


Special Thank You - Uniques by Lainie

I won this giveaway in an online bingo game. Lainie from Uniques by Lainie was awesome to work with. I was able to choose the size and colors I wanted for this uber cute Bunny Shirt. 

The bunny wraps around the shirt for that extra cuteness touch. :o)
It is well made and I would highly recommend checking out her products for yourself!

I think it's going to go great in a basket with the Chocolate Easter Bunny earrings we already have!

Special Thank You – Skeeterbug Props

I recently won a stork pouch from Beth of Skeeterbug Props. I did the usual contacting of the sponsor to claim my prize and as soon as she found out what it would be used for, she immediately asked what she could do to help! So, in addition to the stork pouch, she sent 3 handstamped necklaces that are just too cool. So cool in fact I had to tell my 15yo that she'd just have to buy drawing tickets like everyone else to win the necklace she wanted. :o)

This is the Stork Pouch that photographers can use for super cute baby pics. It came with full tips and instructions for its use which I personally found fascinating! 

Here is the 1st handstamped necklace. It says Faith Hope Strength.

Here is the 2nd handstamped necklace. It says Fight Like A Girl.

And last but not least, the 3rd handstamped necklace which says Kicking Cancers A** (I know, but I still can't type it out. LOL)

You can find Skeeterbug Props on facebook, too!

If you are a Relay for Life team interested in purchasing awareness necklaces for fundraising purposes, contact Beth as she has special promo codes for Relay teams.


Special Thank You – Ellura Sage

I can't wait to share Ellura Sage with you! I've seen a lot of boutique items lately and have entered quite a few giveaways. Prices vary widely and truthfully, I'm glad I've won some of the bows for the 5yo because I just wouldn't splurge on an item for the hair (I know, I know, but I'm a SAHM who loves to budget! LOL) no matter how beautiful and tempting it may be...and it is tempting! Jessica of Ellura Sage has the most exquisite items and in my humble opinion, the pricing is phenomenal! I, in all my budget glory, would not hesitate to buy from her! Items are wonderfully made and so inexpensive you feel like you're getting away with something!

Ok, I promise I wasn't a paid advertiser! But when I won an item of my choice from her shop, my jaw almost fell off it fell open so hard! Anyway, back to the story. I chose the Lavender Peony Hat and Headband set. GORGEOUS!!! And Jessica was so kind as to include a flower clippie for the 5yo so she wouldn't be too bummed that she, under no circumstances was keeping this set. :o)

Jessica has some awesome specials right now on her webpage (as if the pricing wasn't already super reasonable!). A code for 15% off and a free clip with purchase for liking Ellura Sage on facebook!

So check out Ellura Sage. I think you'll be glad you did!
