I kinda freak out when I am meal planning because I want to make things nice and easy for her, but I have no clue what to buy. So often I end up with random stuff that taste like cardboard.

No more, I tell you!

Bisquick Gluten Free Baking Mix Kit {GIVEAWAY}

My Mom has to eat all wheat and gluten free so I know all to well how miserable it is to eat "regular" food.

I was excited when I found out that Bisquick has it easy baking mix now available in gluten free. I thought it taste the same as the regular mix, and works in recipes without any change in consistency or results.

Bisquick sent me their new gluten free mix to try, along with a cast iron mini pancake pan, a pancake pen and a rubber spatula.

This was pancake morning in our house.
The pancake pan makes perfect little cakes!

The pancake pen is super cool. You measure right in the bottle, shake it up and draw your design. Coop got a "C".

Glasses USA Review Coming!

My sis needs new eyeglasses. Like really bad. I'm not going to say she looks goofy in her current ones. (Well, maybe I will.) She is a styling gal, and she needs her some glasses that prove it.

5 out of the 7 members of my family wear prescription glasses. Somehow, I am one of the ones that doesn't have to. When I started checking out Glasses USA, I started feeling like it wouldn't be so bad. They have some super cute glasses!

Back to my sister. She is going to order some new glasses online. Some cute ones. Some that make her look like a business woman. (Cause she is!) Some that match her stylish self. And I'm gonna tell you all about it. The good, the bad, the ugly. Pretty sure there will be no ugly, though.

Are you skeptical about ordering glasses online? Keep an eye out for my review of to see just how easy it can be!

Rachael Ray GIVEAWAY from CSN Stores!

When I was asked to do a giveaway for CSN Stores, I was all but jumping through the computer to say yes.
CSN has amazing products, and pretty much anything your little heart could want.

Their selection of kids beds is HUGE, and my little heart wants this for Cooper as soon as we move into a house.

That way, our convertible crib is empty and ready for a little girl. Just sayin.

A little while back, I did a review for CSN stores, and I was ever so happy with the lamp I received. I am so excited now, that one of my fabulous readers gets to receive some CSN lovin, too!

The lucky winner will receive a Rachael Ray “Bubble & Brown” 2-Piece Stoneware Baker Set. One top of that, you get your choice of color!

Could those colors be any better? You wouldn't serve a dull casserole in those babies!
I seriously want to win my own giveaway.

Perricone MD Cold Plasma - WINNER!

It's time for a WINNER!

I know this is an awesome product, and you all wanted it. I wish I could give one to all of y'all! I left the decision up to the good ole people of and they came up with:

Number 81. Who's that?

Well, that happens to be Leslie of JAM's own reality!

Congrats, Leslie!
You are the proud new owner of Perricone MD's Cold Plasma!

Perricone MD Cold Plasma {GIVEAWAY}!

When I got asked to do the giveaway for Cold Plasma, I was all, "you think I'm nuts? Yeah, yeah, I'll do it!" I already have grays at 25, so I know wrinkles are not far off. I need to stop any before they get here!

Now, I'm no pro, but I am a nurse, and I do know that blood plasma is pretty amazing stuff. I mean, its the life force. The really, really good stuff in your blood. The stuff they actually pay you for at the blood bank. I would have to imagine that any kind of plasma is pretty amazing.

And the stuff retails for $150 a bottle. That PROVES its amazing. And that celebrity's probably use it. And that theres a good chance I'm going to look like Heidi Klum after using it. So ya, I'm all over it.

Do you want to know all about the science? Here it goes.

Five years of intensive research guided by a lifetime of scientific insight has yielded Cold Plasma, a breakthrough in skincare technology from renowned healthy aging expert Dr. Nicholas Perricone. Formulated with Dr. Perricone's patented delivery system, Cold Plasma addresses the 10 most visible signs of aging:

Enlarged pores
Uneven skin tone
Loss of firmness
Loss of smoothness
Loss of radiance

Cold Plasma is a universal skin care product; suited for anyone, no matter how old your skin is, what your skin type is, or whether you’re male or female.

Cold Plasma works through a patented ionic (i.e. charged particles) suspension carrier system which allows for your skin to extract from Cold Plasma’s formula according to your individual, unique needs. This personalized system, called biochemical individuality, is a self-selection process charged by phospholipids, major cell membrane components. Phospholipids are fat derivatives which help lock in moisture, because phosopholipid bilayers have hydrophilic (attracted to water) heads facing outward and hydrophobic (mix poorly with water) tails facing inward toward each other. The phospholipids in this formula help direct needed nutrients where they can be effectively used through the cell membrane. This means, if any of the ingredients aren’t needed, they just won’t be utilized.
Cold Plasma works through this system to deliver optimal nutrition to skin cells to help skin achieve a healthy, glowing, youthful appearance.

Cold Plasma isn't all Perricone MD creates, either. Go check out the rest of their extensive line!
