Peach Gelato Yum!

I have been so horrible at keeping up with my blog lately I know I know so here is a quick update of everything that has been going on! I had a fantabulous lunch at my  home with amazingly wonderful friends Melissa, Sally and Tara and of course their amazing little people. I wish all my friends could come have come but I know some must work! Oh well. I didn't really get any pics of the amazing ladies that were at my  home but I did get some of the the amazing little people! 

She is soooo good with my little man! She's going to be an amazing mommy one day.

Such a diva!

Nathan was given a vtech v. smile baby from one of the hubby's coworkers and I just had to buy the power cord for it. Nathan has learned to play it with his dada...he is so cute when he's playing his video games with dada!! I was one that was against them at first but he is growing up in a world of technology so I gave in. Although he better learn to love playing outside! We don't need a little chunker like his mama!!

We took Nathan to the toy stores near our home and he had so  much fun!! He found that giant ball and chased it up and down the aisles at the first toy store and didn't want to play with any other toy other than stopping to give the Mickey Mouse Doll a hug! So freaking cute! so of course we had to buy the toy for him!

We went out for dinner to Bierangel a Bavarian food restuarant with our friends Ryan and Corina for Ryan's birthday! We had a ton of fun with great company and then went out for gelato. Nathan had a whole peach gelato to himself and it was soooo funny to watch him eat it! He seriously is the cutest little man in the world!!

More Freebies!

Now who doesn't love to get freebies in the mail?!?!

I joined another review site and they had a promotion of ten reviews for 10 bucks and I thought why not?!?! Well I did it and I got a 10 buck check in the mail! How freaking great is that?!?!

We got Remember the Titans bluray from the Disney Movie Rewards club!
Now ya'll know this is a freaking great movie and just had to add it to our collection!!

We are now waiting for Glory Road to come in the mail from the same points program!

It is another great true story that is a must see!! (PS if you do this rewards program type the word Believe in for 10 points!)

From the Pampers rewards program we are waiting for a Melissa and Doug wooden puzzle!

It's stinking cute right?!?! And just couldn't pass up such a cute puzzle for my little man and who doesn't love Melissa and Doug products?!?!

I finally got something from the huggies rewards program and I think its pretty stinking cute!

Not that Nathan needs a lunch bag for anything but it was just too cute to pass up since I had the points and Huggies rarely has anything to spend your points on! Which right now they have a ton of stuff if you just have points sitting there!!

I am also apart of which is an amazing program that gives you all kinds of free stuff for word of mouth advertising which I do lots on and on twitter! So far I have recieved a box of cleaning supplies that included a glade candle, lemon pledge, scrubbing bubbles mega shower cleaner, scrubbing bubbles toilet gels, and a glade plug in. I also get a ton of cover girl stuff which I give to my amazing friends!

I was part of their Lip Perfection campaign and received two full size lipsticks.

I was also part of their Natural Luxe campaign where I recieved a full size foundation and a lipgloss. Great stuff by the way!

I am currently part of their Lawry's seasoning campaign and we get to try out a couple new marinades! Still waiting on that box to come in the mail!

I also received free Campbells Harvest Select Soups from about six of them if I remember correctly and they're super yummy!

I also do book reviews for a few different companies and I have about four more books I've received in the mail and need to read and review!! I think that is all the goodies we've received in the last couple of months! There are so many opportunities out there from different places to try out free products and to get free books try them out yourself one day :)

Book: Mamarazzi

Mamarazzi: Every Mom's Guide to Photographing Kids
By: Stacy Wasmuth

In my previous post I told ya'll about my new fabulous toy and even posted a couple pics I've taken with it. Well I have this fabulous friend Jennifer who sent me this book as a gift. She knows my obsession with my son and knows I bought the camera because of him, so she sent me this book. I'm not done with it but I love it already! It is so helpful and has so many tips and I can already look at the pictures I posted and see what I could have done differently. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone wanting to take fantabulous pictures of your child(ren). I can't wait to finish it and learn even more!

I am going to buy one more book it just hasn't released yet. I want to get the book for my Nikon D5100 from the dummy series so I can learn how to properly learn to use the different functions. The manual it comes with is helpful but I'd like to see examples and what not from it. I'm very excited to have such a neat camera and am excited to learn how to use it! We're going to have such great family pics and travel pics from now on!  Love it!
