PetCakes Review and Giveaway!

I am so excited to be reviewing this adorable stuffed animal for you guys! I mean, if my kids didn't love them I totally would. Its an animal that looks like a cupcake? Seriously adorable right? I popped these little things open and my daughter especially went nuts. She's three and anything that looks like a cupcake is number one in her book. And the top was purple, which is her favorite color. My five year old boy was a little harder sell, but squirrels are his favorite animal this particular second and the fact that I was sent a squirrel for him increased his interest. both of my kids thought these animals were extremely cute and I whole-downheartedly agree.

Here's a little bit about the company.

Well Made™ Toy Manufacturing Corporation, introduces PetCakes™, a new collectible plush pet line that will be a sweet treat for children ages 3 & up. Each PetCakes animal features a "frosting" hat, comes nestled in its own cupcake wrapper and has its own whimsical backstory. At first look, children will see a delicious cupcake but will then be surprised by the pet they find snuggled inside! Combining sweet faces and cuddly plush with a clever cupcake theme, PetCakes are collectible and provide hours of open-ended imaginative play. PetCakes make perfect gifts for a special friend and for pet lovers. They are ideal for birthday party favors, stocking stuffers and as rewards for good grades. Most of all, PetCakes deliver the kind of fun kids eat up!

For my review I received two from the Series 2 Limited Collection grouping. I received the adorable Nutty Nicky (Squirrel) and Roco Coco (the racoons). Stuffed animals in general aren't of great interest for my five year old son, but my three-year-old daughter scooped these things right up and just absolutely fell in love. Although secretly I caught my five year old putting him with his stash of animals on his bed. I think these would be a perfect little gift for your little girl 3 - 8. PetCakes is working on a interactive world for the PetCakes, so I could see this toy going for older girls that love that sort of thing. So keep an eye out for that.

Buy it: You can get these petcakes in 8 different varieties and right now there are some specials running!

Buy (4) or more Petcakes® Collectibles plush toys and receive the PetCakes® Collectibles Minis - 4 pack FREE you only have to pay an additional $1.99 shipping/handling.

Thanks for stopping by for this weeks Military Spouse fill-in. Please check out my military tab up top. I'm always updating it with the latest info. If there is something specific you are looking for please let me know. Also, if you are looking for some specific and more private support I'd love to have you check out my forum, Love and Dogtags.

1. My favorite song of the season is Silent Night.

2. Anyone who faces extreme hardship and does something great is someone who inspires me because even ordinary people can be super human. I think we often don't give people the benefit of the doubt or expect greatness from people. People can surprise us.

3. If I had $100,000 to give to a charity, I’d give it to something to do with Children. Either Shriner's, St. Judes or the Ronald McDonald House. They are all so important.

4. If I had a theme party, I’d make it a decades party. Come dressed from your favorite decade. Love it!!!

5. If I had one wish for my kids/future kids/some young person I care about, it would be to make themselves proud. So many times we do things for others, or what others think we should do. But if we really look inward and do something that actually makes us proud of ourselves, I think that's an even greater thing.

Announcing Phillip and my Labor Looks, post use, review!

Well, everyone, let me just say this path month has been crazy. My little man will be a month tomorrow and time is flying way to fast for me. I am so happy and so blessed as a mom. My two other children are loving him and adjusting so beautifully. They want to help me feed him, change him, be around him and so far no issues of jealousy. I was so lucky when I had my daughter. My son was jealous either. I don't know if that was just luck, their personalities or the fact that I was so aware of the possibility that I tried so hard to make sure that he felt loved and special. Its something that I thought a lot about when we decided to have Ami, and I thought about again when we got pregnant with Phillip. How do you make sure your time is spread evenly? Can that even happen? I think it can. I think it doesn't have to be as deliberate and decisive, or even as black and white as it sounds.....but I fully believe it can happen. We spent individual time with our kids, both of us have. One of my favorite memories with Brian is when he and I went to Nick Jr. Live. It was so much fun. And I think we will continue to do those things as our kids get older. Its important and 100% possible. Now on to the fun stuff.

Here's me in my labor looks gown right after having Phillip

I have never had so many compliments in my life! Every single person that came into the room, including the anesthesiologist just went on and on about the gown. It was so comfortable and after having two kids in the regular hospital the weirdest way it made me feel different. I mean, seriously, how silly does that sound? Totally silly. But I love it. It gave me full coverage, I could tie and untie the ties by myself, even after having him. And it washed amazingly, even after a day of sitting in the dirty clothes at the hospital. How amazing is that? It is so comfortable that I have even worn it after the fact, when I was recovering. I absolutely loved my Labor Looks gown/my pjs! I think ever mom should have one and I really really really wished I had even heard of this option when I had my first two. The nurses and doctors loved it, said it looked just like a regular one, as far as the things they need to have a gown have.

Head over to Labor Looks and get a gown for yourself or even as a gift. And I believe the girls are planning an amazing Black Friday Sale, so get over to their facebook and check out that rumor!

and now a couple pics of my newest addition

and wanna know where to get the shirt i got for my hubby? Check out Daddy Scrubs, on their website and their facebook page.

Farm Rich Review and Giveaway

Hello all!!! Thanks everyone who is continue to follow along. I'm telling you, this whole pregnancy thing can really throw a wrench in your blogging. I'm not sure if its the pregnancy though, or the 2 1/2 and 5 year old running around the house....but oh well. Its one or the other I'm sure.
Now on to the fun!

I got to review a product from the Farm Rich company. A company that I've never really purchased anything from before....and I don't think I really had any idea what they were. They have a whole line of freezer products that are like appetizers! I don't usually buy much from the freezer aisle except for my juice and the occasional frozen veggie. As soon as I went hunting for it I knew immediately what I wanted to try, the Mozzarella Sticks. But that's not all they've got - Mozzarella Bites, Pizza Slices, Mini Cheeseburgers and the list goes on and on. But, oh man, I love me some mozzarella sticks. We had a great restaurant out here on the west coast that shut down not that long ago that had the most amazing Mozzarella Sticks. 100% reall Mozzarella sticks and 0g Trans Fat and the seasoning is pretty darn amazing. And it wasn't until now that I tasted any that compared with them. I'm telling you, these were the best out of a freezer bag appetizers I've ever had. They didn't taste like freezer food at all, and I'm sure most of you know what I'm talking about. I mean, its great for convenience and ease, and who among us hasn't snuck the occasional tv dinner when making one is just out of the question. I know I have.

The first thing I noticed was that it was kind of expensive for a freezer appetizer, about $7.99. Then I realized, "oh I'm getting anywhere from 22-28 sticks in the bag, not the normal like 10 or some lame number like that." Now that was nice, bang for your buck. That was before I even had the chance to try it. I love also how the bag opens. Now that may seem silly to some people, but the location of the seal bag is really nice and less likely to break apart in the freezer or when you try to open it, thus sacrificing the continuing freshness of your food.

Now you moms out there will appreciate this. I made me a couple and they turned out amazing

There is actual cheese in these things, lol, a good portion of it. I obviously couldn't finish them all and i went to just quick and nuke them in the microwave and they still tasted good? What?! LOL! My son even gobbled a couple up, dipping them in some ketchup. All in all it was pretty successful and I'm really glad that I was able to pick these up, because I don't think I normally would have. The people at Farm Rich have also graciously have offered to give some coupons to some of my lucky readers! And if you are a coupon person this is right up your alley! I don't have my rafflecopter ready to go yet, so unfortunately we have to do this the old fashioned way, so bare with me! leave your email on your entries please!

Military Friday!

Hi all! Its Friday again! Seriously? Sometimes I feel like time is crawling along like a snail, like with my pregnancy. However I think that might have more to do with the fact that I'm just totally excited and anxious to find out what I'm having. Then sometimes I feel like the days are literally flying by, and I look at my kids and they are not babies anymore. Where did the time go...and this week. Where did that go? The hubbs is uber busy so I was trying to fill my week with fun things for the kids in the hopes that it would go by fast and now that it has I'm like, "whoa! I did a good job." But one of the most favorite parts of my week is catching up and checking in my with MIlitary Gals!! So lets Fill-in, shout-out and Round 'em up!!!

If you are looking for extra support I would love for you to stop by and check out Love and Dog Tags and also stop by the Military tab up top. Thank you to Wife of a Sailor for another great fill-in!!! And stop in for the round-up at Mrs K and Captain J

1.My plans for this weekend include hanging out with my kids, some cleaning and wathing my friends baby while she and her hubby have a datenight, but I'd rather be - well, except for not being with the hubbs that's a pretty good weekend in my book!

2.I consider the Labor Day holiday the sign that summer is over. And the day you get to be on the news and get all sorts of cool stuff when you go into labor, LOL. Not that that's on my brain or anything :) Its a little too early though.

3.My favorite meal for cookouts is anything BBQ, potato salad, some beans and nice cold pepsi out of a glass bottle :) Yummy!!! And I can't think of anyone that wouldn't agree with that!

4.So far, my favorite part of summer has been so fun and exciting! We went camping, my son turned 5, ordered some school stuff to do with him this year, and possibly decided on a job and moving!! (more to come on that later)

5.When it comes to deployments, my philosophy is one day at a time. The hubbs tends to be gone quite frequently. This last time was especially hard, and I think that my son happened to be at just the right age and stage that it created a perfect storm. So one day at a time is all I can manage. I try to maintain a philosophy of "This is Life". I chose this life, I knew what it meant so it doesn't give me the right to go on and on and on and say horrible unsupportive things or cause my husband stress or grief because he feels guilty. I do however believe that I'm human and a girl and a bit emotional. So allowing myself to feel sad, cry, be mopy with a pint of Ben and Jerry's and a good movie....surrounding myself with people who encourage me, but also allow me to be sad is key. Its all about balance.

Thanks everyone and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Labor Looks Review and Coupon Code!

You don't even know how excited I am to be doing a review for Labor Looks hospital gowns. If you could see me now I'd be jumping up and down. Practically as soon as I found out I was pregnant I was hunting around for fun things that I could do this pregnancy because we have practically everything we need for a baby because we kept everything from our last two. We've got all their clothes and all of our other big gear type stuff was all gender neutral. One of the things I wanted to get for sure was one of those snazzy hospital gowns. I had seen them on tv and had run across them randomly on mommy websites. After looking at about a million other companies I finally came across LaborLooks. What first drew me to them was the price. I couldn't believe how much other companies were charging for their gowns. It was ridiculous! Then the patterns. All sorts of patterns, that were beautiful and detailed and not just a blue and a pink. I was really surprised at how many other companies had ugly patterns. I was thinking that I'd rather wear the regular hospital gown then this. Then I began looking at the company. LaborLooks was created by two sisters, one a Registered Nurse and one a Certified Nurse Midwife! Both moms, both wearing and testing out their product during actual deliveries! I mean, seriously? How much better does it get than that?

For those of us, including myself, that decide to go the hospital route we get the need for hospital gowns. I mean, it really makes things easy for everyone involved. But its so impersonal, they most certainly aren't one-size fits all, and lets face it....they aren't really the most fashionable thing you'll wear as a mommy. So just from that stand point its a completely novel idea and I can see why people have jumped all over it. Now let me tell you some other things that make these LaborLooks gowns different from some of the other companies I've looked at. One thing that totally jumped out at me was that these gowns have an overlapping tie (as you'll see in the picture) instead of the typical snaps (on regular hospital gowns and on other custom gowns I've seen). This feature allows for complete coverage and, as you'll see in the pictures) I could totally do it myself. The fabric on these is amazing. I have heard that some of these other gowns having fairly thin fabric. Not the case here. I mean, it literally feels amazing! These gowns are totally comfortable and I can see myself having no problem wearing it through the labor and after without it getting dirty. It seems really durable, so wearing it for future deliveries wouldn't be a problem. One of the creators of the gown even wore hers through her c-sections. And of course the last great feature would be the snaps on the shoulders for great skin to skin contact (by unsnapping both sides) and breast feeding (by snapping one side at a time).

One more thing I wanted to talk about was the sizing. Pre-pregnancy I was a size 16 and their sizing is right on. I was kinda of leary because in their sizing that made me a size m/l. I received the gown at about 30 weeks, so I'm pretty out there, and I see myself have extra room, but not so much that after the baby it would be too big or feel huge on me. It seemed to be designed similarly to maternity clothes in that the bulk of the extra fabric is just around your middle and not just all over, so you end up wearing a tent after the baby is born. Literally this thing is amazing I could see myself wearing it at home later on, in post-recovery. And now for some pics!

Please check out my YouTube review of this to see it in action and when you go to LaborLooks to purchase your gown use the code "rheanna" to receive 15% off!!

Thank you so much to the gals at LaborLooks for allowing me to review their product. I received to compensation in exchange for a positive review. I received one laborlooks gown to review and give my own opinion about.

Rhe's Bookshelf #4

Well, its that time again, I've got a couple books to review here so hang on to your hats!

My First Hands-On Bible - New Living Translation

My First Hands-On Bible is the preschooler version of the popular Hands-On Bible, which has sold over a half million copies. Jesus taught with hands-on lessons and illustrations; My First Hands-On Bible uses the same experience-based learning to communicate God’s Word in an active, understandable way. My First Hands-On Bible is a fun and simple yet meaningful way to engage preschool, pre-K, and K children (ages 3-6) with the Bible while helping them build a solid faith foundation. Each lesson focuses on a specific Bible point through a variety of activities in order to reinforce and help young children remember the stories and lessons. Using common household items, you can help your children have a “hands-on” learning experience while engaging them in 85 key stories from the Bible. My First Hands-On Bible doesn’t just retell the Bible stories; it also includes actual Scripture from the easy-to-understand and easy-to-read Holy Bible, New Living Translation. In addition to the stories and activities, there are fun illustrations, prayers, and a special Jesus Connection feature.

I am the mother of a 5 year old and a 3 year old and I loved this Bible. First off I really loved it just for me. A lot of times children's bible's can miss stuff, or skim over stuff or just shorten things down because its geared towards kids. I didn't feel like that at all when I was looking this over. But by far the best part is the illustrations. So beautiful and fun. When my son opened it up for the first time he said, "Wow mommy, i like these pictures". It was so easy to talk to him and have a conversation with him just about the pictures. That was before we even started reading it. The stories are great lengths and read in such a way that it kept my son's attention while also spurring questions and conversation between. I love this Bible and I would definitely recommend it to any parent looking for a first Bible for their children! An added bonus for you homeschooling moms with younger children who aren't quite ready for full on curriculum is the activities included within the stories. Its something for your younger kids to do that will make them feel like they are a big kid. I will be using it for my son who is doing pre-k and kindergarten learning at home this year.

**this book was provided by the Tyndale Blogging Program for my review. This review is my own and I was not provided any compensation for a positive review

Don't Check Your Brains at the Door, by Josh McDowell and Bob Hostetler

Don't Check Your Brains at the Door gives teens answers that make sense, even for the toughest of questions. Internationally known defender of the faith Josh McDowell and co-author Bob Hostetler offer clarity laced with humor to expose common myths about God, the Bible, religion, and life to show how Christianity stands up to the test of fact and reason. Teens will be better equipped to stick with their faith as they begin to understand why they believe and why it's important to make a lifetime commitment to Christ and the church.

I wasn't actually sure what to expect when I first got this book. But after opening it up and powering through about the whole thing in one night I loved it. Josh McDowell is amazing and so I knew anything by him would be great. I believe that this is such a relevant book for this day in age and I really think that groups from Jr. High and even College Age could use this book. The stories are relevant and easily comparable to life. The follow-up questions are great. I'm always worried with things like this because I fear that the topics would become too relevant if you know what I mean. The questions and topics become too watered down. The future of Christianity today is in the hands of our kids and feeding them wishy-washy garbage isn't going to do us any good. I would pick up this book if you're a youth leader or any kid, or if you have teens in your house, or even before your kids get to that age. I have a five and three year old and I loved this book! Its a tough task to raise our children and anything that helps with that is good in my book!

Chuck-e-Cheese Review!

I recently was given the opportunity to do a review for Chuck-E-Cheese. I was quite happy because my children (more specifically my five year old) have become aware of its existence. I love PBS for the fact that there are no commercials, but Chuck-E-Cheese is a proud as a parent you get where I'm going with that. The purpose of the review was to test out there new pizza recipe. Now, anyone that has been there growing up might remember the pizza and its not being the best out there. I personally didn't really remember, but my husband said that right off the bat when I told him about this review opportunity. Honestly though, is anyone really going there for the pizza, LOL? So I went actually with a different perspective, not really remembering what the pizza tasted like before. Of course I brought my husband because he remembered. First off let me say that I was quite impressed with the place. I haven't been in forever, and we did go during the week, but it was amazingly clean, the games were great and I loved that there was a good selection for my kids, who are 3 and 5. I was expecting them to have maybe one or two options. The staff was great, and checked on us through out our visit. Two thumbs up on overall experience.

Now on to the pizza. It was a thin crust, which I'm not generally fond on, and it was actually good. I mean, its not a pizza place so I think the experience that you would have at a place that is exclusively serving you pizza, as a restaurant, will be different. I did love the sauce. Great spices. It was by far then something that I'd just get at a Sam's Club, or in the frozen section at the grocery store. It wasn't super greasy, the pizza wasn't chewy and the pepperoni wasn't rubbery or extremely spices. My husband could actually tell a marked difference between what it was before and what it was now.

All in all I was thoroughly impressed with everything. The food, the drinks, the staff, the games, the overall appearance of the place. Two things, from a mom's perspective that I also loved was A) the bathrooms had little toilets and little sinks and handles on the doors low and B) if my kids were like 5 away from a higher number for the tickets they rounded it up so that all the tickets could be used and I wasn't stuck with random tickets and the kids not being able to use them. We spent several hours there and are already planning our return trip back. It was a great place and I definitely would consider having a birthday there and just going as a family!!

World Breastfeeding Week

I'm a little late on this everyone, but its World Breastfeeding Week! Check out their Link.
I am pregnant with my third, and will once again be breastfeeding. This time I'm determined to make it work longer than the last two. I think I do struggle with an actual physical issue. Some of it could have been just inexperience, especially with the first one, but heaven's it wasn't for lack of trying. I even got a fancy breast pump to help with that. The second time around I discovered a great herb called Fenugreek, and thank my mommy friend Barb for introducing me to that. What an angel! The thought had never occurred to me, before I was pregnant, that I would have any issues. But really, alot of stuff doesn't occur to moms before their moms, no matter how much babysitting you did (and I did A LOT!). My mom had a friend who was lactation specialist/nurse come over and talked to me. I never did a class with a certain organization and I probably won't ever. I am however going to class sponsored by Medela next week and I'm soooooooo excited, the awesome maker of my fabulous breast pump. The truth of the matter is that I have had one too many disspointing and irritating experiences with the unnamed organization that I'm over it. Now before I make anyone too mad, I am sure that there are wonderful people there and many many many people have been blessed by them. I'm also aware that there are nuts in every group of people. I feel like, along with the "natural" and "epidural" group, there is this ongoing battle between women in the breastfeeding/formula realm. And really it is so ridiculous!! Why do we as women fight over the stupidest things. Yes, I am here to tell you I get that breastmilk is amazing and wonderful and the best thing that I could give my baby. But from someone who has struggled, and felt like they did all they could, it doesn't help to tell them how horrible formula is. It doesn't help to tell me that I must not be really trying and must not be doing something right. I have two beautiful children raised primarily on formula. And, not to brag, but they are kinda smart and extremely healthy children - formula, vaccinations and all, LOL! If you are a breast feeding mamma that has had no problems I envy you! I think that is amazing. It is hard work, takes dedication and sacrifice and TIME! I'm excited to give it a third go...I'm all prepped with my mother's milk tea, my fenugreek, I'm going to my class and I'm excited! But I know that if I'm not able to, and I have to go to formula that's fine. I know my child will be healthy and wonderful. And to all those mom's out there that might read aren't alone! I discovered a whole world of mom's that were like me after I had my experience. I thought to myself, what a blessing that we have herbs, and teas and professionals.....and formula! To think back in the day, or in many third world countries, mothers and babies aren't so lucky!

So three cheers for mother's everywhere!! Whether you're a breastfeeding or formula mom, a store bought baby food or homemade mom, a cloth diapering or disposable mom, an organic, no plastic mom or not! We are mothers and that should be enough to unite us!!! So lets celebrate World Breastfeeding Week and let it remind us that we are all moms!!!!!!!

I'm a Mom Maven. Learn More...

Undercover Mamas Review

Okay, everyone, I have discovered one of my favorite pregnancy related items this pregnancy! Even after already having two I'm still finding and discovering things that I wished I had had with my first two. This shirt is my favorite; and I am so glad that I discovered it. The shirt is called Undercover Mama and it is amazing! I think I already said that, but seriously.

I purchased two in white and one in black, without even having tried them because that's how amazing they looked. And I was not disappointed. And I mean who wants to buy a whole new wardrobe for breastfeeding, especially after buying maternity clothes. And although I do have one or two shirts made exclusively for breastfeeding, this is an amazing way to expand the possibilities with your wardrobe. Its comfortable, it fits nice against my body. The length of it is perhaps my favorite part about it. Its easy to figure out, even if you don't have a picture to look at. I have three different brands of nursing bras and they all worked with this shirt. I love it! Go buy it now!!!

Please check out my video review on Youtube!

And here's a couple of pictures I snapped, but there are more amazing pictures of real moms on their website.

Rhe's Bookshelf #3: The Fight of Our Lives

I was given the opportunity to read this book by the publisher and I'm so glad that I snatched this book. It was an amazing read, and as a Military Wife and American I recommend that everyone read this book. Don't let the title of this book scare you or make you have any pre-conceived notions about this book. This is not just a random blathering of some right-wing, pro-war, Islamic hating person. This is a well-written and intelligent book, that includes the praise of those doing positive things in the Islamic words and the worlds of Muslims themselves. Granted, depending on your political views there may be many things you don't like about this book, but there are several chapters that should be read regardless of where you stand politically. You will definitely learn something. While this book expresses many 'Opinions' of the authors, this book was well researched and includes so many facts that can not be construed as just opinions. I didn't feel as if I was being manipulated or things were shoved down my throat. I have seen other people say that they felt like the author was trying to scare us or turn us into "1984". I didnt' feel that way. It could, however, be me. After putting it down I felt like buying everyone I knew a copy. I am so grateful for the opportunity to have read a book I might not have otherwise seen. It had a lot to say and was a lot to take in; and isn't what I would consider "light reading". Spread the word because it needs to be spread.

Preggie Fashion.....

So I've come to the conclusion that I'm not alone in my dread of shopping while pregnant....and frankly it doesn't rate that much higher than Bra shopping. Ick. My amazingly comfy maternity capris recently took a turn for the worse. Lasting through one more pregnancy (as this will probably be it for us) just wasn't in the cards. I mean, really, you couldn't just last for one more!! Now, I have to go shopping for some. This was partly an inspiration for my newest endeavor, which I kind of explained on my first youtube video. I'm hoping to do a video series like many you see out there...where these girls go shopping or looking around for fashion, what's hot, what's not, what they bought, what they think is amazing.....except I wanna do it for Maternity clothing! I know, kinda of crazy, but we'll see. I think its kind of fun. And if it totally is lame and doesn't go anywhere, oh well!

So in celebration of the 4th I wanted to share some cute patriotic clothing that I just recently got. We are taking some family pictures with my husband in his uniforms, so i was looking for something that would go with that, be patriotic, without being PATRIOTIC!! If that makes any sense.

I know that sweet and feminine clothing is really big right now. I just love it. I think its all darling. Flowers, and soft prints, flowing fabric - all of it I love! What's cool about this style is that alot of it can work for your pregnant body, most of the way through. Flowy and forgiving tops that aren't maternity work amazingly well at keeping you all covered.

I found this top at Target, and right now its on sale for like thirteen bucks! The color is a really good true red, not orangie or pinky at all! The rouching on the side is very flattering and I simply can't get enough of all the elegant detailing on it, with the flowers and such!

and I'm pairing it with a beautiful soft grey tiered skirt from Old Navy, which is no longer listed on their website but you should still be able to find it in the store. Last night when I went on my failed expedition for capri's (they only had like 10 size 2's....sorry, lol) there were still some on the rack in grey, lavender, go and check them out. its extremely comfortable and darling.
