I won a Hairy Kids set from The Spilt Milk Moms ages ago and it did not arrive, I really stewed over contacting them after a very bad result from contacting another blog about something not arriving - I finally did perhaps on Sunday, could even have been Monday, they were SO gracious, and polite to me. I was honestly floored by how they treated me after my last experience with this sort of thing.  Anyway. Today this lovely little package came from hairykids, they are from  Salt Spring Island, which is just a Island hop from where I live, a lovely little art community - very nice. These are just so nice - they smell amazing. My oldest daughter is already asking where we can buy them - I am hoping I can buy them in a store, and not just online, I have to go and find that out myself :) They have smells like Lemonade, Tropical, Unscented, and Seaside.  My youngest was our lucky guinea pig tonight and will give a little blurb in a second here - but first I have to say my bit, she smell like candy - honestly, this stuff has nothing  in it to harm my lovely little girl, nothing toxic (there is a huge list of what you do not want on your child and what they do not have on the sheet that it comes with- look on the web site!)  She used the Tropical scent, she used it all, bubble bath, shampoo and conditioner. They used the tiniest about of bubble bath and had a massive amount of long lasting bubbles. My husband was amazed at how easily the shampoo and conditioner washed out of her long curly hair, and really she smells like candy. now in her words:
"it was very smooth, and it smelled goooooooood. The bubbles were HUGE, they almost went over my legs. The shampoo is great, I loved it, it is white but that is fine. The conditioner is good to.And I love how I smell :) I will use this again and again and again.....I think I will try the other smells to. " My youngest, aged 5

Chocolate Yum!

I had a huge box of Nestle chocolate come in my mailbox the other day - it is already half gone. We are just loving the pre Halloween treat, thanks Jessica from all my family who each got a favorite in the box. There are Smarties, Kit Kat, Coffee Crisp, and Aero - so we are all covered :) You can look up Nestle at to see what other goodies they may have for you or pop off to your grocery store and buy the big 94 bar pack that I got to sample - you won't be sorry. OR you could be more noble than I and give them out to the nice little kids coming to your door on the 31st! My kids will be a witch and a veterinarian - if you happen to see them, they love Smarties and Kit Kat's!

Ficklets eyeglass Jewelry

My daughter get her Ficklets Eyeglass Jewelry a couple weeks ago and I have meant to post about it, but between the stomach bug going threw out home, and thanksgiving have not had time. She put them on her glasses and honestly has not taken one or the other pair off since. She got the Ballet Slippers and the Jewel Butterfly's.  Everywhere this child goes people comment - kids and adults want to know where she got them, are they a part of here glasses, can they get some to LOL, she is a trend setter in this town! If I had business cards for Flicklets I could make them a fortune I tell you! Truly this is the coolest thing for kids glasses ever! She is in LOVE and wants more!  My daughter is pretty outgoing and loves to show people new things, she loves attention and I tell you things brings her attention.  The pictures I took did not do the jewelry justice so PLEASE go look at the site - they are SO worth the money p- if you have a child with glasses order some, really I am telling people they should get things but if you must wear glasses (I did as a kid and still do, both my girls do) then at least you should look cool. They have a piece for everyone, animals, sports, just jewels, you name it they have it. Even some movie stars are getting them for their kids now apparently!  So worth the $$$ In my opinion, and we will be getting her more.

The Bourne Objective

My mom loves to listen to Audio books while she drives - just loves it! She is utterly tone def which is part of it, and part of it is she is a avid reader with a social life of a teenager, so her car is a great way for her to get some book time in, if that makes sense. I have been trying to win her some Audio books for Christmas to get her a stash for the year. I won her The Bourne Objective by Robert Ludlum, it is 12 Cd's  and 14.5 hours long ,so should keep even her occupied for a bit. it is read by Scott Sowers.  This is a part of a series of books, The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy, and The Bourne Ultimatum  I have seen one of movies and loved it, so I am sure she will love the book, but will have to wait until Christmas to let you know about it :)  I won this from Deb at DebsHere.

An Observation of My Winnings

On the 18th of Sept or thereabouts I stopped using my email as my full e-mail and started breaking it up as is advised to stop spam, at that point, I seemed to stop my winning steak on winning blog contents as well. So on the 6th of Oct, when it dawned on my that this may be why I was no longer winning (it also had occurred to me that I had posted a blog about my luck and that may be why to) I stopped with the space and the typed out AT and DOT and went back to the spam drawing out e-mail, well on the seventh and today I have won -not sure at all if it proves a thing, but it is really interesting for sure, to me at least. I for one with keep my spam LOL. I just delete all those RRussian women that want me, it is easy enough to do :) I will have to wait and see if this carries on but it sure is interesting. The Sukey thing is that there was one thing in this dry spell, in fact the ONLY blog contest I have ever really ever tried to win, where I have done every single thing asked that I could do and I was doing this e-mail address now that I suspect did not work. It was for these super cool shoes that my youngest would sell her left leg for LOL, they are like a animal, three dimensional, crazy looking dog shoes (well the ones she loved were dogs) she wanted them so badly. I am sure I probably would not have won them anyway, but I would have loved to have for her. She would have worn them to the a pulp!

Piggy Keychain

I got this lovely e-mail from Paige telling me that although I had not won her giveaway the etsy owner loved what I had posted about my daughter falling in love with the piggy key chain on her Etsy shop so she decided to send her that key chain! Now this is not just from Canada or the States either, it is all the way from Serbia! It came this week, and under top secret tactics we picked it up from the post office and got it home (she will  get her beloved piggy for Christmas) So you can see how sweet this thing is here is a picture:
Now this little girl of mine, is five, and has loved pigs since she could talk. She has been collecting them since she was two. She stopped eating pork oh when she was perhaps three and a half when her sister told her what it was, then started telling us that her pigs did not like us eating them - we don't eat pork at home anymore :)  She will be thrilled with this piggy!
