Ticklebug Baby

When you're away, you realize the items that you just must have and can't do without while traveling. Here's one. I know I've written about these before but now realize I must get one!!

Robbie Adrian Luxury Organics

I LOVE soft baby blankets. What a luxury to wrap your baby in soft, warm, cozy delight! The only problems I find are that 1. You usually need a few blankets and 2. The good ones are pricey! Well, Robbie Adrian to the rescue! Their lovely, organic blankets now made with a little bit less silk to help make the price more affordable.
Offer your baby luxury, and all the same RA style, with our NEW "recession-friendly" designs. Our familiar silk trimmed style, that our customers have come to love, but with a slightly smaller ruffle. A great option for those who want Robbie Adrian luxury for less. Our soft fabrics and rich hues work well with the latest trends in nursery baby bedding and toddler bedding. This organic blanket for baby is made from super plush 100% certified organic cotton velour or fleece on both sides and is edged with a natural silk charmeuse ruffle. Our US yarn is spun and then knitted on the east coast. The cotton used in our Robbie Adrian organic baby blankets are certified back to the bale of cotton. We maintain a file of certification with each lot. All Robbie Adrian organic baby blankets are machine washable on gentle cycle and dryable on low heat, for best wear.

Learn to Read

John and Anna will be entering kindergarten this year and will need to learn to read. I want to help them out, mostly because John is visually impaired and will have a much harder time learning to read than the typical child. Anna has down syndrome so it will take her a longer time. Any help I can give them is going to benefit them greatly.

But not just my special needs kids will benefit, yours will too. Help give them the boost they need to get a leg up on their pre-k through 3rd grade class with Priced at $29.95 (very reasonable) it has great reviews and a money back guarantee!

Happy 4th of July!

Visit (or click the title for a direct link) to make this fun 4th of July Cake today!

Basically, take your favorite cake mix, 2 pints of strawberries, 1 1/3 cup of blueberries and a tub of cool whip.

Bake the cake and let it cool. Slice up a cup of the strawberries and set aside. Halve the remaining strawberries and set aside.

Take the cup of sliced strawberries and a cup of the blueberries and put them on top of the cake. Cover with the whipped topping. Take the remaining strawberries & blueberries and arrange them on top in a flag design! (or go wild and try a fireworks design, either way it will be fun and patriotic!)

Have a great day!

Those Crooked Houses from Jon & Kate

Did you fall in love with those crooked houses from Jon & Kate (while being heartbroken for the family at the same time?)

They have the original house for about $1250, a deluxe house for $2500 and custom houses (that start just under $5000.)

Since the custom are definitely out of my price range, I've been checking out the deluxe. They look like so much fun an for about $500 more you can get delivery and set up (SO worth it!)
