The perfect for kids Mini Muffin Pan Review



When it comes to my four year old and parties or even "just because" he loves him some cup cakes. I however do not like or let him have cup cakes whenever he want so on occasion I like to make him my special "cup cakes" the ones that come in the morning and have no where near the amount of sugar as a birthday cup cake. Making reviewing the Mini Muffin Pan from Grazia that much more fun to make them bite size making clean up even better. 
The Mini Muffin Pan from Grazia is not only amazing because its for "mini cupcakes" but also because it is 100% Pure Food Grade Silicone, FDA Approved, Heat Resistant up to 450 Degrees Fahrenheit and is the best of all stick free. No more cleaning out metal pans. Rinse, wipe, clean. Bam that easy. I know AWESOME. Making moms and dads life that much easier. 

What I loved most about this pan besides the easy clean aspect of the pan is that it also made the "cup cakes" have a warm fluffy center with a nice and crisp edges which if I have to admit is my favorite part of the muffins.

20 weeks pregnant and so much has happened.

This week marks week 20 of my pregnancy to my baby girl. Let me just start by saying these last two weeks have been crazy. First I get this horrible summer cold/allergies. Sore throat, clogged nose and water filled ears.  I still went to work all my days even though by the time I left I had no voice. I sucked it up and just kept trucking along. But the  fun did not stop there. Last week my right ankle started to hurt when walking. Ok I thought. This too will pass.that it did not but instead of it getting better it started to swell.

So I went to the ER got an x-ray but nothing. "OK"I thought. I just kept going. Finally about 3-4 days ago I got a small little rash on my ankle. Now it's hurting to walk, swollen and now has an itchy rash. My thoughts, go back to the ER. See what they say. Something is going on and I have no idea what it is. I go to the ER and what do they tell me. "You have shingles". What... You have to be kidding me right. On my foot??? I asked for he doctor to run test to make sure just because in my mind this could not be happening. On top of that if I have shingles I can not go to work (I work in the hospital) and if I can't work I can't pay the bills. Doctor said no he would not run the test. And I quote "if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck,  sounds like a duck, it's a duck". OK, Ok. I cried wheat home not in a very good mood, called work etc. The next morning I called my OB, went in and what did he say??? There is no way this is shingles... No blisters, you've only had it a couple of days and it's on your foot. Yay... I get to work and cried for nothing right. What a long past two weeks but I'm alive, feeling baby Ryan move all the time now  and growing. 

P.S. I hope you all have a better week than I had.

Haven- A Stranger Magic. (My very first book review!)


Sifi/Fantasy books are some of my favorite books to read. I love to read them so much I decided to do a review, my first review on the book Haven-A Stranger Magic writen by D.C. Akers. 


A Stranger Magic (Book 1):
Sam Dalcome thinks he is so completely average that no one ever notices him. Until he discovers a mysterious stranger outside his home. Bewildered, he tries to uncover the stranger’s intentions. But Sam is sidetracked when he and his friend Travis discover a secret passageway deep in the town’s quarry that leads to a hidden cavern. What they uncover next will not only change their lives forever, but will uncover the first clue to a deadly Dalcome family secret. Sam finds himself drawn into a world of mystery and magic he never knew existed, which brings him closer to a destiny he never knew was possible. Get it today for FREE.



What I thought about Haven: A Stranger Magic.
When I first started to read the first book it took me awhile to get into it. It talked mostly about Sam, his older sister Sarah and his best friend Travis. The best way I could decribe it is like a pilot to a new T.V. show. A ton of carachter building. But I was determent not to give up on the book. I kept reading about the everyday lives of Sam and Sarah. It wasn't until about half way through the book did I really start to become addicted to this book. It kept me wanting to know why, or what; did that just happen? It kept me hooked. Let's just say I finished the first book in a day. It wasn't dificult to understand making my life much easer with my dexlexia. I am so excited to see what is to come in the 2nd book and will be coming back to share.

The Knotty Girl Brush! Tangle free hair is now even easy.


I have done many post on this blog about how crazy my hair is. Not to long ago I cut 13 in off my hair and what do you know.... I still have crazy thick hair. As to think it would go away when I cut if off right? 

My hair is now about 4 in longer than in the picture to the to the left and once again getting more and more frustrating to brush after taking a shower. 

When I was told about the Knotty Girl Brush of course my ears went up in curiosity about how well it really worked. 




While researching Coolway and finding that Coolway had been fettered in a ton of magazines such as Allure (winning the best of beauty award), The Oprah Magazine, Cosmopolitan, OK Magazine and many more I decided I was ready to give Coolway a try and see just how good the Knotty Girl Brush really was. 



When I got my Knotty Girl Brush in the mail. I'll tell you what happen first....

Husband: Why on earth. Another brush?
Me: Yes ANOTHER brush. 
Husband: Let me see that. 
Me. Its suppose to help with tangles. I'm excited. 
Husband: We shall see....



Lets just say that my husband uses this brush every day. Thats how much he likes it. 

I on the other hand decided to wait until after my shower to try out the brush for that is when my hair is the worst. Later that night after my shower I made sure not to use a ton of conditioner to I could properly give this brush a good run for its money. The bristles on the brush were extremely soft on my head and did not pull a single hair from my scalp. 

We can say that our house is now a huge fan of the Coolway Knotty Girl Brush and now that we will be adding a little girl into our family I will be the coolest mom ever and not have to pull my babies hair out. 

Coolway was kind enough to offer all my readers a 10% off coupon for there Coolway orders. The Promo Code is: mycoolway29

You can also enroll in Coolway preferred Customer Beauty Program. The Customer Beauty Program is an auto-ship program that ensures each customer will get their products at member pricing. 

Disclosure: 
I received this brush for free at no cost to me for my honest opinion on the brush. All thoughts are mine and may differ from yours.

17 weeks pregnant.


This last two weeks have been crazy. We went on vacation, went swimming every day which was amazing and my two boys loved it. We found out the sex our our baby which is a girl, yay! Had a not so fun trip to the ER. Baby is ok, nothing to worry about. I have felt the baby move, that's always an awesome thing to experience. 

Went to the doctor and talked about my weight gain. I have already put on about 11 lbs which is a tad much for only being 17 weeks but I think I'll live! Just worried about those last few weeks when you put on the most. 

I'm still working full time over night. 12 hour shifts are a killer but I love my co workers. They make it special. Still up in the air about what to so after the baby is born. I have been missing my joys kore and more. Not sure if it's just all the extra emotional hormones I'm having or of it's just me being a mom. 

That's it for now but I'll be posting my next video soon so keep an eye out for it.
