Ginbug Bows Review

Summer is around the corner, and we’ve found these adorable flip flops for your girlie girls at Ginbug Bows. They would be perfect with shorts, skirts and capris this summer. The bows on the flip flops are all named after songs. They include The Rose, Brown Eyed Girl, All That Jazz, and Easter Parade to name a few. Hair Bows are available to accessorize the flip flops. Your little princess will be adorable with a set.


Ginbug Bows also specializes in hair bows, painted shoes, and other accessories. I absolutely love the Sweet Caroline Loopy Bow. The colors are great for summer and include yellow, apple green, hot pink, and orange ribbons. These colors are going to be hot this summer. The Baby Piggies pony tail holders are adorable too.

Ladies, put a pedicure on your list and head over to Ginbug Bows. They’re having a sale on their flip flops. This would be a perfect time to stock up. Buy 2 pair for your little princess and get a 3rd pair free just for you. Just enter flip flop at check out for your discount.

Welcome Bo – The White House Dog

Meet Bo, the Obama’s new dog. Isn’t he adorable. When I saw this picture, I truly thought about running out and getting a Portuguese Water Dog for my grandson. Unfortunately, Xavier doesn’t seem to be fond of animals right now, but this little cutie would be at the top of my list if he ever becomes receptive.

This little pup is sure to bring Sasha and Malia joy. Giggles & Sugar Kisses wishes them the best with their new addition.

Construction Eating Utensils Review

Construction utensils. Yes, three of them and so cute. The set consists of a fork, spoon, and a pusher. We found them at Construtive Eating. I couldn’t resist, I just had to know more about these unique utensils. So, I contacted Jackie Malcolm, the creator, to give me a little insight as to how she came up with these fun items.

Jackie told us that these items were created as a result of her middle child, a boy, who was going through his construction phase. Jackie stated, “It was just one of those middle of the night ideas. Our third child was still very young and we spent many wakeful night hours just laying in bed, sleepless and thinking. It just dawned on me that construction machine utensils would really tickle his fancy”.

Jackie stated that her husband was an engineer, so he fine tuned the designs after local stores expressed an interest.

Constructive Eating has added a matching plate to their collection. I had the opportunity to review the plate, and I found the orange color stimulating. It’s divided into 4 section and contains a place to hold the fork, spoon and pusher. The bottom of the plate contains rubber, which keeps the plate from sliding. This is a great concept. The plate is a great buy at $14.95.

I absolutely love the utensils. The set consists of a fork, spoon and a pusher and the construction is superb. The construction is important to me, because my 18 month old grandson believes everything is made to be thrown. He’s learning to feed himself, so I thought this set would be perfect. When I gave him the spoon, he immediately pointed to his dump truck. He loves it. I carry it in my diaper bag now. He loves to eat his ice cream off it when we’re out and about. He also uses the fork for his corn, mac and cheese and Cheerios. Yes, he uses it for Cheerios too.

Be warned, these utensils are so cute your toddler won’t want to share. My grandson’s cousin visited and wanted to use his spoon at breakfast. Oh my, let the fun begin. Xavier wasn’t happy about sharing, so guess who will be buying a set of utensils for visiting cousins in the near future? The set is $19.95 and is available in pink and green.

I highly recommend this feeding set for a birthday or Christmas gift or a fun way to get your toddler to eat. We would love to know your thoughts on this set, so please leave us a comment.

Baby Jamz Review

This old man, he played one he played knick-knack on my thumb, With a knick-knack paddywhack, give a dog a bone, This old man came rolling home. You know the words to the song, but I bet you’ve never heard them with the rhythm and rhyme that Baby Jamz use. These babies get their groove on, holler.
After checking out this CD, I purchased it for my grandson. Baby Jamz is a creation of Solange Knowles and her father Matthew Knowles. In case you don’t know, Solange is Beyonce Knowles little sister. She has an adorable little boy named Julez, so she decided to take her talents in the baby/toddler direction. She created a Hip Hop CD of nursery rhymes, which engages babies and toddlers. My grandson loves it. I’ll be purchasing Volume II to place in his Easter basket. Now I’m not a fan of Hip Hop, but this CD has flavor. I found myself dancing to This Old Man along with my grandson, and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Baby Jamz features 4 friends, Julez, Simon, Carlos, and the gorgeous Jasmine. They are so cute. They can be found on a variety of Baby Jamz products, including a Dance Mat, Master Mix Chair, and their CDs to name a few. I love the CD. It includes Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, The Wheels on the Bus, Hush Little Baby, and Old McDonald’s among others. At 18 months, my grandson listens to the entire CD.
Check out Baby Jamz and tell us which products you like, and your favorite Baby Jamz friend. We would love to know your opinion on these great products.

I’m going to run with scissors! A mother’s worst night mare, but so cute on this onesie. I could see my 18 month old grandson wearing this. It’s adorable and the products are made with 100% organic cotton. We found it at Little Chickie’s Wear, and guess what they have more.

I love seeing little chubby legs sticking out from onesies. I’m always searching for something unique and Little Chickie Wear has them.

Is This Water Blue Enough For You?

I need a vacation, and I’ve decided that I’m going to lay on this beach and enjoy the blue water in June. I own a condo in this building, top floor, far right facing the ocean, and I can’t wait to utilize it this year. I don’t always use it, there’s either something going on or I want to head elsewhere. It’s been on my mind recently, so I’m taking that as a sign that I need to pack my bags and make use of it.
My condo is approximately 1 hour from Orlando and 1 hour from Fort Lauderdale. A 2 – 3 day cruise to the Bahamas while I’m there is sealing the deal for me. My doctor told me that I need to relax. High blood pressure runs in my family and I’m borderline. He said I just need to spend time around the pool or on the beach and just let my stress go. I have a tendency to need a vacation when I come back from a vacation. I love to take pictures, so I spend time running around site seeing and snapping pictures as well as finding activies for everyone to enjoy. I’ve decided to take the doctor up on his advice this year. I’m going on vacation with a suitcase full of books, sunscreen and a wireless card for my laptop instead of my camera. .
I’m also going without kids and my man, woo hoo. Do I feel guilty? A little, but that too shall subside. I have to admit it’s looking pretty good to me. I’m going to sleep late, eat when I want and shop as long as I want. I’m making reservations for a Spa Day too. A full body massage, facial, manicure and pedicure are on my list.
I vacationed by myself several years ago, and I loved it. I felt so rested and peaceful when I returned. I missed my family, but no screaming kids, no worrying about dinner, doing laundry or piles of dishes soon replaced the ache for my family. I’m learning that I should be able to take time for me and not feel guilty. There are 365 days in a year, I should be able to take 7 of those days for myself.
I’ve found over the course of the years that I pour everything that I am and everything that I have into everyone else and everything else, and at times I came up exhausted. There was a time in my life when I would not have allowed the thought of me vacationing alone to enter my mine. As I’ve gotten older I’ve become much more independent, and as a result fears have disappeared and my priorities have changed. I’m learning to take care of me.
If you find me MIA for a week in June, you know where I am.
