Transformers Construct Bots

Have you guys seen these? Transformers Construct Bots are super cool! You build the robot (Like you would with k'nex or legos) and then the robot can transform into a car! This ulitmate set come with Optimus Prime and Megatron. Both my boys (6 and 3) love it! And so did my husband!
We all (mostly mom!) love that the box it comes in is a resealable container so you can keep all the pieces together!

You can buy it wat Walmart for $29.96. Merry Christmas!

Kids' Shopping List

So this kind of saved my sanity today. It was kind of time consuming but it was worth it. And I made these while I waited for the baby to wake up from his nap so I didn't delay my shopping trip at all.

Just open a Word document, make a 3x4 table (or whatever size you want) and google all the things on your list. Then copy and paste them to the table. I pasted some to Paint first and edited them a little or cropped them to fit better. 

I gave one to my 5 year old and one to my 3 year old. I put different things on each list because I know my 5 year old would find them all before the 3 year old and then we'd have a meltdown, ya know?

Recent Nail Designs

Here's just some of the cute stuff I've done since Christmas.... Enjoy!
All of these and more are on my Facebook Page!

BzzAgent; Shick HydroSIlk Razor

SO, I'ma  BzzAgent. I get to take surveys and sometimes try new products and then tell them what I think about it. It's pretty fun!
SO I'm trying out the Shick HydroSIlk razor right now. Honestly, I don't think it's any big whoop. 5-blade razors are awesome. I've been using a Venus razor for almost 10 years. I don't think this razor is any better than what I've been using. If it's cheaper, I might get it instead. :)
I have coupons if you'd like to try it out for yourself.
