Five Question Friday #5QF {NEW!}

I just saw this and thought it would be fun to join in.

1. What is the funniest thing you saw on Facebook/twitter this week?
YWM: Hmmm...I've hidden most of my friends with nonsense from my timeline. I did find myself laughing at some of the meme's and someecards. Love those!

2. What is your favorite Olympic event?
YWM: Gynmastics. If only I were that toned and flexible. Sigh...

3. Do your kids to chores around the house? If so, what are they and how old are the children? Do they get paid for them?
YWM: Our almost-three-year-old is responsible for picking up her toys. She gets paid with stickers. One for cleaning up her room and another for the closet.

Finally Wanting to Read!


In preparation for our daughter to be born, I spent hours shopping thrift stores, discount stores and dollar stores for books to read to her. I had always pictured reading together in her nursery. Well, she didn't have a nursery thanks to living in the family dorms and we didn't read together for long.

*CLOSED* Book Review & Giveaway: "Use What You Know: A Business Idea Guide for Moms" by Joyce Brewer

I'm dreaming of the day I can really consider myself a work at home mom. Blogging has brought me into contact with wonderful women who have succeeded in making that possible for themselves. A few are actually helping empower other women to do the same.

Joyce Brewer, creator and host of MommyTalkShow.com, has published a unique ebook titled "Use What You Know: A Business Idea Guide for Moms." Joyce, an Emmy-award winning TV Journalist and former TV anchor, is also a wife and became a work at home mom a few years ago after the birth of her son. Like us, she wondered how to use her skills to make an income from home. Years later, her business idea has become reality and she's sharing how we can do the same!

Book Review: Mother Knows Best? by Sue Castle

Mother Knows Best?
 The Truth About Mom's Well-Meaning (but not always accurate) Advice
by Sue Castle

I think every mother gives her children advice, be it welcome or unwelcome at the time. To this day my mom still gives me bits of her wisdom here and there. No knocks to the moms, but have you ever wondered how true that advice really is? This humorous reference book by Castle (yes, I did use humorous and reference book together) set out to find "the truth behind mom's so called words of wisdom." She succeed in shedding some light on a variety of topics. The book has 10 sections of entertaining, intriguing and surprising findings on many of the notions that have been passed on through the generations. Castle tackles old wives tales with clarification from the experts(and there are some GOOD ones in there.)

Our Cow Appreciation Day Experience

Yesterday was Chick-fil-a's annual Cow Appreciation Day. Customers dressed up as a cow (full or partial costume) received free entrees and meals. This year I decided to partcipate and dress up our little girl. I downloaded the cow starter kit from the Cow Appreciation website and put these cute items together.


I paired it with a white shirt and black pants. It came out really cute.

Hubby was a little reluctant to dress her up thinking we'd be the only ones in costume. As soon as we pulled into the parking lot, there were already people in costume. Everyone loved her costume and said she was so cute. The little scored a free 6 piece kids meal and a cow plush. Hubby also bought some sundaes for us. It was a really nice time.

She did get to see the Chick-fil-a cow when he came by the table to say hi. She was scared and wouldn't look at him, lol. She did wave bye, though, as we walked out the door to go home.


Did your family participate his year or done it in the past?

*CLOSED* DVD Review: #ToothFairy2 PLUS Giveaway!

My family loves a good movie that we can all enjoy watching together. In this very cute sequel to the 20th Century FOX Home Entertainment 2010 movie, "Tooth Fairy" with Dwyane "The Rock" Johnson (*insert long swoon here*)  and the fabulous Ashley Judd, "Tooth Fairy 2" stars comedian Larry the Cable Guy. Larry plays a goofball who makes the mistake of telling a child that the tooth fairy doesn't exist. He learns the hard way that they do exist and there's a bunch of them! The fairies impose a punishment upon Larry and he has to work for them, collecting teeth of children that he coincidentally knows. Larry doesn't have the power to control when he turns into the tooth fairy and it puts in some silly situations.

ULTA Free Blowout Event!

Last week, our family came to visit us all the way from Georgia. In planning for things to do while they were here, I found that ULTA is having a free salon event featuring Living Proof. Basically you get a free shampoo, blowout and style with the Living Proof frizz-free products.  So I booked one appointment for me and one for my mom on the first day.
