Bake Me A Wish Needs Your Help!

   


     The 4th of July is coming up quickly this year! It will be here in just a few days! Bake Me A Wish would love to have your help in remembering the troops this 4th of July!! They have a wonderful program that sends birthday cakes to soldiers!



      Here is a story from Bake Me A Wish:



     Bake Me A Wish participates in Operation Birthday Cake, a program that sends cakes around the world to soldiers on their birthdays. This program carried out in concert with Soldier's Angels has been responsible for the delivery of over 6,000 cakes in the past few years. Recently, we were lucky to be part of CPT Dan Murphy's 40th birthday. How did we celebrate it? Why by sending 40 cakes for his 40th to Kosovo, of course!



  
 
     You can see images from the birthday party celebration here: http://www.facebook.com/?tid=1475913547496&sk=messages#!/album.php?aid=2066264&id=1436973450&ref=mf
 
      Also, we are looking to do something cool this 4th of July. If our Facebook page reaches 4,000 fans by then, BMAW will donate 50 additional cakes then it did last month. That's 50 soldiers, 50 parties and a lot of really great moral.
 
      It would be great if you could help out the soldiers this holiday season by becoming a Bake Me A Wish Facebook Fan or participating in Operation Birthday Cake!
 
 
 
 
  I did not receive anything for writing this post. I'm just passing along some information on a great program and cause!

Nacho Mama Tees Review + Giveaway








     Nacho Mama Tees is an awesome online shirt store where they have such a variety of shirts from movie shirts to vintage shirts! These shirts will catch your eyes and you are sure to find a shirt that matches your style and humor! 

     Nacho Mama Tees is also the sister site to Crazy Dog T-Shirt!


Some of the categories of shirts they have are:

Vinatage T-Shirts
Funny T-Shirts
Movie T-Shirts
Cheap T-Shirts
Girls T-Shirts
Cool T-Shirts
80's T-Shirts

They also have Halloween costumes for women!




     I love that on their site you can pick a category of shirt you are interested in and under that category they have several shirts for that category!

      Nacho Mama Tees has their customers in mind when purchasing cheap t-shirts! With the economy the way it is right now it's great to know that you can purchase a t-shirt for a great deal! You will find that many t-shirts are on sale on their site making these shirts very affordable!


   

     Nacho Mama Tees was nice to send me an A Team T-Shirt to review! It's funny because when I picked this shirt out for Paul, I had no idea that the movie "A Team" was coming out in theaters! Paul had eyed this shirt out before and he liked it because, of course, our last name starts with an "A". He has had jokes about it and we have thought to name a company with A-Team in the full name of the company.



 
     This t-shirt arrived extremely fast which was very impressive! The shirt came folded perfectly! Paul put on the shirt. The first thing he noticed was that it was like a muscle shirt on his muscles! He has never had a shirt like that before and he thought it was pretty cool! I asked him what he thought of it later and he replied that "it was the nicest, softest shirt he has ever had".  The shirt also didn't shrink when we washed it and the printing still looked brand new!

     Paul and I are very impressed with the shirt and their service!




We definitely recommend Nacho Mama Tees to you!

Essential Swimwear Review + Giveaway








     Swimsuit season is finally here in Utah after a cooler spring! I can't think of a better way to celebrate the warmer weather then to own a new swimsuit from Essential Swimwear! Essential Swimwear has cute, unique tops and bottoms that you can mix and match for a fun swimming suit!

      I love that if you click on a top you like on the Essential Swimwear website then at the bottom of the page it shows you what bottoms might go with the top you choose!


For example if you choose this top.....




These are the bottoms that match:






ABOUT ESSENTIAL SWIMWEAR
(from their website)


     "After becoming thoroughly discouraged every season as I searched for the perfect swimsuit, I decided that it didn't exist. I was frustrated with expensive prices, wrong fits and the hassle of searching online for hours. Having some sewing experience, the thought came to mind, "Why don't I make my own swimsuit?"


     After a lot of trial and error, I was finally able to sew swimsuits that were comfortable, stylish and flattering. I began making swimsuits for friends and family and soon the word started spreading.


     I sold hand-sewn women's swimsuits in 2008 and 2009 and received an overwhelmingly positive response. I gained priceless knowledge as I personally fit hundreds of women. I was able to discover their needs, wants and insecurities. With this knowledge I was able to design a line of swimsuits for the 2010 season.


     To increase the quality and keep up with demand I no longer hand-make the swimsuits, but am able to offer styles, designs and a price point that fits the needs of women.


     I hope you enjoy wearing these swimsuits as much as I have enjoyed designing them!"




 

     Brittney was very nice to send me a Black Skirts Bottom and the Starry Night Gathered Halter Top! I was very impressed right when I opened my package from Essential Swimwear! The swimsuit was made out of high quality material! I was so excited that I went and put the swimming suit on immediately! Paul and I were both very impressed with the swimming suit from Essential Swimwear! I can tell you that I have never owned such a great swimming suit in my life! We had to laugh at the comparison from my old swimming suit to the Essential Swimwear swimming suit. It was like a night and day switch! I haven't been able to purchase a new swimming suit for a few years so Essential Swimwear really made my day when they sent me my new swimming suit!





     The swimming suit fit me perfectly! They have a size chart on their site that helps you find out what size of swimming suit you are in need of! I followed that help and I was very impressed that the swimming suit fit me! If you don't want a tighter fit than I would advise you to go up a size on the Starry Night Gathered Halter Top!

     I definitely love the Black Skirts Bottom! I have never seen a bottom piece like this one! I love that it covers up places that I don't feel comfortable showing off! It definitely beats wearing shorts over your one piece swimming suit!




  
     I didn't have a chance to go swimming since it has been cooler here so I just got in the shower with the swimming suit on to see how I liked the swimming suit when it was wet! I can tell you that I couldn't even tell I had a skirt on. It didn't give more weight to it. It was a little tough to take the swimming suit top off when it was wet, but it did not take long to get it off!

     I'm very impressed with Essential Swimwear and I definitely recommend Essential Swimwear to you!

     If you are in need of a swimming suit this summer then go visit Essential Swimwear! They have free shipping on exchanges just in case your swimming suit might not fit you how you want it to and their prices are wonderful!

Visit Essential Swimwear today to purchase a swimsuit this summer!

Athletica.net Review







Athletica is the fitness expert in fitness clothing where they are at your service 24/7! You can shop for many different fitness apparel from the comfort of your home! This company has so many different athletic clothing to choose from! Some of the types of clothes you can purchase are:

- Men's Yoga Wear
- Women's Yoga Wear
- Aerobic Clothes
- Gym Wear
- Workout Wear
-Weightlifting Attire
-Cardio Clothes






       Athletica offers sizes Small, Medium, Large, Extra Large, and XXL! They have clothing for both men and woman that is very fashionable in the fitness department!



  
       
        I was very excited when Athletica contacted me to do a review because in reality I don't have actual fitness clothes that I wear when working out! I usually just wear some boring sweats that make me hot while wearing them!
 
       Athletica was very nice to send me two different fitness apparel items to review! I was sent the Combed Cotton Basic Mid-Calf Leggings and the Combed Cotton Basics Jazz Capri.






       I tried on the Leggings and Capris right when I received my package! I could not believe how comfortable they were! I was really in love with them right from the beginning and I'm still in love with them now! I will never go back to wearing sweats again! The capris and leggings helped make my workouts easier with no extra hanging clothing! I really loved how the products fit tightly on my legs!

       The Athletica site gives a size chart when you click on a clothing item to help you figure out what size of apparel you will need! The chart helped me find the exact size I needed! I was very glad that the review items fit me perfectly! If you would like a more loose fit than I would go a size bigger!

        The review items were soft, comfortable, and more fashionable for me! Athletica really knew how to impress me!



         I definitely recommend Athletica to you!!





 BUY IT!

Happy 1st Birthday to Paxton

  




     Happy Birthday to my sweet nephew, Paxton! Today is his 1st birthday! It's hard to think a year ago he was born and we were able to be at the hospital when he was born! Paul and I were happy to be there to share that special moment with my older brother and his wife, Jamie!





Little Paxton came 3 weeks early and weighed 4 lbs 14 oz. He sure has grown up fast!

We get to go celebrate his birthday with a BBQ today! Yay!

Happy Birthday, Paxton!
