RULES
1. Follow your Host and Co-Host
I have taken notice that many of you are not following the rules. Follow your Host and Co-Hosts or DO NOT PARTICIPATE. If you are not going to be a helpful hopper and you choose to work against us rather than with us I will DELETE your links. If you have not followed the rules in the past, this week would be a great chance to make it up to us! Don't be that guy!
2. Follow back! That's why we do this, after all.

When you do this you can click the links that are in your PAGE inbox and it will like them from your personal page.
3. Check your SPAM periodically.
   -On your Facebook, Go to Edit Page> Activity Log > Spam (on the left sidebar). If you have scheduled posts it will be UNDER them. Facebook tends to mark comments or messages from others as spam if multiple comments or messages are sent in a short period of time.

Feed The Turkey!




Ok, so how this works--

After Halloween this little sign needs to show up at your doorstep, at the mail box, pinned to the front door, whatever. Its from the Thanksgiving Turkey. Let the kids find it.

Everyday leading up to Thanksgiving they need to put some candy out for the turkey until Thanksgiving to fatten him up!

How cute is that? Not to mention Mommy & Daddy get a nice little stash to collect. 

Are you going to let your kids choose what candy? Or encourage them to give the Turkey the 'best' candy?

Make sure to add #FeedTheSkinnyTurkey to all your posts!!

NeriumAD Review and Giveaway

A friend of mine, Becca over at Southern Mess Moms has a NeriumAD Review and Giveaway that she is hosting! Below is her product review, and a chance for you to enter to get some for yourself!
Here is what Becca says:

Nerium

Have you heard about Nerium Age Defying creams?

Don’t look at me like that!
I’m not saying your old…or that I am…I’m just asking a simple question! hehe
Okay, so maybe I wasn’t THRILLED with the thought that I am at a point in my life where I need to start thinking about Age Defying creams and such I mean come on let’s be serious…who is happy about that? 
But…while I don’t have many wrinkles now I honestly didn’t realize I had the one I had until I started taking pictures for this :(  I need to get started preventing them if I want it to stay that way!
Anyways…moving on with the purpose of this post!

What is NeriumAD?

Well, according to their website:
” NeriumAD Age-Defying Treatment is a true breakthrough in anti-aging skincare that harnesses the patent-pending NAE-8 Extract from the Nerium oleander plant.
The NAE-8 Extract, in conjunction with other synergistic, age-defying ingredients, is responsible for the creation of real results. This powerful formula allows NeriumAD to address multiple concerns at once.”
Okay, I totally know what you are thinking…
YEAH RIGHT! I’ve tried so called anti-aging products before and they all end up the same!
Very little if any results!
And the images most companies show as “real people’s results” are just laughable! It is so easy to see that it isn’t the same person…or that they were “crinkling” their forehead to make it look like massive results…well I am here to try and give you REAL results…
I was even willing to take pictures of myself WITH NO MAKEUP! Seriously guys…do you know the sacrifice I am making for you guys here!
NeriumAD before

Okay…there you have it! My before pictures!

What I didn’t tell you is that I have had this product for a week now! That’s right guys…I have some pictures to see if there have been any changes!
Now, before I show you the 7 day pictures let me do a little explaining…
I am using the Day cream and the Night cream. I have been using NeriumAD for a total of 7 days! I know that the pictures aren’t exactly the same…I tried my best to get the same lighting and positions…but it isn’t easy!
I have followed the instructions very carefully when applying.
With the Night Treatment you are supposed to wash your face and then apply 4-5 pumps I have only been using 3-4…5 was a LOT for me to your damp face and neck. It takes it a minute or two to soak in. In the morning you just rinse it off and apply the day cream as you would any other daily moisturizer.
Just a little note: Your face will feel tight after you put on the night treatment. It almost felt like I had put on a clay mask and forgot to take it off lol! However, this tightening sensation only lasted about 20 minutes with me. Then my face felt normal!
Okay…no more stalling…here are my 7 days of NeriumAD pictures:
NeriumAD resultsNeriumAD resultsNeriumAD results
I will be doing another post at the end of the month to announce our winner for the giveaway and put up my 30 day results pictures! Fingers crossed that we see even more amazing results!
Even if I hadn’t seen these changes I could have said some pretty positive things about the Day cream for sure!
How many of you moms put on your makeup at the beginning of the day…just to have it disappear before lunch time!
Well, guess what?!? Since I started putting on the NeriumAD day cream before my concealer/base it stays on! I am actually WASHING IT OFF AT NIGHT!
I haven’t had to do that in … well… I can’t remember when! lol
Another perk that I have noticed is that my face feels very soft and healthy. I know that when you use things like this there is always a chance of a break out or two since it has an antioxidant in it that is cleaning out your pores. However, I didn’t notice any at all.
If you are curious about NeriumAD and want to get in on some pretty awesome customer perks check this out:
The Day Cream Promotion: If any Preferred customer signs up with BOTH the day & night creams and have it auto delivered for 3 consecutive months, they will get their day cream for FREE FOR LIFE! As long as they continue to auto deliver the night cream.
3urFree: This means that any preffered customer that has 3 people go to their website and order as a preferred customer the night cream in one calendar month, their next months night cream is FREE & they only pay shipping which is $9.95.
So basically preferred customers have the potential to get BOTH the day cream and the night treatment for FREE and simply pay for shipping! 
I think this is so super cool!
I have never dealt with a company that did this before!
There is A LOT of information over on Debbie’s Facebook page and Website, so head on over and check it out!
Now for the part you guys have been waiting for!
The Giveaway!

Spare Bath Make Over!


I haven't done a DIY post in a while. Here is a cute make over I gave my spare bathroom. I love the color scheme, because it's easy to find something to go in this bathroom

Im sorry the pics are blurry. Its so hard to take nice photos of such a small area, and the lighting is NEVER in your favor in bathrooms, (especially when getting ready to go out)

Here are some more pictures.




What do you think?

Grab&Go Freezer Breakfast Muffins


If you didn't know, I am training for a marathon. I am trying to eat better. I am not on a diet, as that is hard to do while breast feeding, but I am attempting to eat healthier. While weight loss is a plus from marathon training, it is not why I am doing it. I had a kid 6 months ago. Losing weight is not on the top of my priority list. My weight has always went up and down, but I have never considered myself "Overweight". The Army would never allow it. Regardless, I am always on the look out for healthy recipes that taste as good as the stuff that is bad for you. Why eat the bad stuff when you can get good taste and healthy? I of all people know that those recipes are few and far between, but when I get one, I snag it.

Here is a recipe for oatmeal muffins. The great thing about these is that you can make them any way you want! By the time you remix it to your liking, there's no reason not to eat these.

Makes 12 muffins.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In a bowl, mix
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cups applesauce, unsweetened
1 mashed banana
1/4 cup honey
2 1/2 cups, oats
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups milk (Ive also used a cup of yogurt which i prefer)
+ 1 Cup of your chice (Chocolate chips, craisins, raisins, peanuts, pecan, blueberries, pomegranate, etc)

Using a ladle is a great way to evenly scoop the mixture into the muffin tin. Bake for 30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Freeze in Ziploc bags.

Heat in microwave minute and a half to two minutes.

I make these for my husband to take with him to work. I make all of them with different ingredients of my choice, and i mix them up. Once they're frozen its usually hard to tell which is which, so it's like a nice little surprise when he gets a chocolate chip one, which is his favorite!

Boost of 250 Likes? Here's the test!

UPDATE AT THE BOTTOM OF POST.

So I heard that BoostLikes.com is doing a promotion for free likes that are NOT BOTS. From what I gather in my reading on their site, they basically advertise you until you get your 250 likes, then stop. THey can do thing for thousands of likes as well if you choose to pay. Im giving them a try. It says no free sites like blogger or wordpress, but im assuming they mean if blogger/wordpress is in your website URL. Im not sure though. Here is the some info straight from their site:

Step 1
Write about Boostlikes on your blog (no free blogs like Blogger.com or Wordpress.com). Your article does not have to be centered around Boostlikes if you do not wish; a simple mention within your article is just fine! Feel free to link back to our website if you choose.
Step 2
Fill out the form below so we can see where you published your article and where to send your 250 Facebook likes to. Please only submit once per website.
Step 3
You're all done! Sit back and watch your likes add up. Please allow 4-7 days for your submission to be processed.

Anyone else had experience with them?

UPDATE***

These "LIKES" Did NOT stick forever. When Facebook did their cleanout of bot Facebook pages, many of these were wiped from my page. Many of the "Names" of these likers were symbols, and they all are from overseas and not speaking english. Poor, poor service. I wrote the company with my concerns and they told me to pay them money. I wrote them back again with no response. Very disappointed.

Tutorial Tuesday!

Thanks to The Breezy Birdie for allowing me to Co-Host this week!
