Cold Cocked the Bitty!!!


Katie has Bronchitis so her doctor put her on antibiotics and back to using the Neb every 4 hours. Gracie finally got her late late late shots thanks to the doc's office putting them off over and over, I finally had to get bitchy and demand them. I do not care if her doctor is a busy man... When my child is late on her shots that's very ridiculous. Being preemie is no excuse!!! she goes back Tuesday for her "Well Baby Check". She was such a big girl only one little tear and a major sad face. Mommy & Katie on the other hand were not OK and cried for her. When Katie watched the needles go in to Gracie's legs and Gracie started to cry out Katie screamed out "Gracie it's OK, Gracie you will be OK, It's OK It's OK" ( I think she was trying to make herself believe it more)as tears are flowing down her face. She couldn't handle watching her sissy in pain, watching both of my girls in such pain i grabbed the nurse and punched her square in the face, it all happen as if in slow motion. I watch this large nurse hit the floor cold cocked knocked out!!!  Standing there happy with what i have just done i smile an evil smirk smile.. my sister looks at me with an "What the hell did you just do expression on her face, 3 smaller nurses come running in yelling at me and yelling to call 911. I said it was worth it!!!! As the officers arrive to take me to jail i start to panic, a small little barney 5 officer puts me in hand cuffs and as we are walking out the door I was suddenly awaken from my day dream.. no i really didn't punch her LOL but oh how it felt good to day dream it.. but the thought of jail time always keeps this momma straight LOL!!!!! Never been to jail and hopefully never will!!!! I'm going through the "pick your battles wisely" deal. If i do ever go to that awful place i will make it worthy my while and take every second of time out on someones ass with satisfaction to hold me over till I'm free LOL !!!!

anyways just thought i would share this for now, Tuesday after Gracie's "Well Baby" I will post a update of what has been going on with our little family lately, till then Keep and eye on my wonderful *Holiday Gift Guide* and Please remember to vote for us daily!!

Childhood Treasures Review & GiveAway!!

The lovely owner of Childhood Treasures sent me these beautiful 3 piece dinnerware sets personalized with my daughter's names, When they arrived in the mail i was in awe of how lovely they are!!







What is Childhood Treasures

Children love to see their names adorning just about anything. Childhood Treasures combines fine white porcelain ceramics and colorful, one-of-a-kind lettering to create handmade personalized gifts that delight children and capture their interest. Each of the Childhood Treasures letters is an individual work of art designed by our founder in 1981, and together these “Love Letters” help us create vibrant personalized gifts that reflect the sparkling exuberance of little ones. These cherished children’s keepsakes are perfect for any occasion, including birthdays, holidays or just because. Handcrafted from the highest quality ceramics, our personalized dishware and ornaments are designed to be treasured during childhood and for a lifetime.

History of Childhood Treasures
A family business for over 30 years!
Childhood Treasures began in 1981 as I sat at my dining room table. As a mother of two with another on the way, I decided to paint my son’s name using colorful, unique letters I created to capture his interest. Friends started asking me to make name paintings for their children, so I did. About the same time, my husband asked me if I had ever considered using my “Love Letters” on mugs for children. A client of his had purchased a mug shop, so I set up an appointment. To my surprise, when I went to the appointment, it was a high school friend who gladly walked me through the process and gave me all the contacts I needed to start personalizing children’s dinnerware. Shortly thereafter, I started going to gift markets and ended up with displays in 250 stores and several national catalogs.
After ten years with a thriving business, three active children, a husband and a full-time teaching job, something had to go. I was stretched thin to say the least. Family and teaching were my top priorities, so I sold the business to my brother who had retired from the Marines and was searching for a business to buy. So, to make a long story short, he kept the business for several years, and then we bought it back!
A short time later, Hurricane Ivan hit Pensacola in 2004, and Childhood Treasures was dormant until 2012, when my daughter Abby told me she wanted to breathe new life into the family business. I was thrilled! Abby has really taken Childhood Treasures to the next level, and she is willing and eager to assist you with your heirloom-quality treasures.
We have customers who received Childhood Treasures pieces as kids and are now ordering pieces for THEIR children! We hope you and your special little person will start your own tradition and treasure your handmade personalized pieces for years to come, as thousands have done since 1981.
                                                           -Lynn Morris, Founder of Childhood Treasures

My opinion
I absolutely love these dinnerware sets! I'm saving them for the girls to give them for Christmas and I know they will just LOVE them and TREASURE them! The owner Abby is such a sweet lady and is very eager to help you with your orders or anything that you may need assistants with! Shipping was super fast and very well packed, not a beautiful piece out of place!! I would and DO recommend this company and their product very very much if your looking for a gift for your child to treasure this IS the company for you!
Mommy Approved!!


Childhood Treasures is going to giveaway one 3 piece dinnerware set to one of  AMommysTale.com's awesome readers!!!! Yippie!!! I'm so excited!!!

Cleopatra's Choice Review!

I was contacted by the people over at Cleopatra's Choice to review some spa/beauty products!
I was sent these products

100% Dead Sea Bath Salts
 There is a reason why salt from the Dead Sea is much more expensive than regular sea salt from any other sea or ocean in the world. The reason is the very high concentration of mineral present in the salt. While regular sea salt is about 90% Sodium (which accounts for it's salty taste), salt extracted from the waters of the Dead Sea is only about 10% Sodium with the other 90% accounting for other minerals which are essential for proper skin function, but which are present in very small quantities in regular sea salt. So what are these minerals exactly and what do they do? Many of the twenty one minerals are present in trace form, however the six minerals listed below are prevent in much larger concentration. Below we go over what each mineral's general biological function is:
Magnesium Chloride: Stimulates protein synthesis. This allows for quicker natural regeneration of healthy skin tissue. Essential for skin cell metabolism, this also provides some anti-allergic and anti-inflamatory benefits. Also vital in helping the cells process other nutrients and vitamins.
Potassium Chloride: Assists the cells in expelling waste and toxins. Potassium is also a major factor in regulating muscle function and the nervous system. Allows the skin to properly maintain an optimal moisture balance to reduce over drying or overoilyness. Signs of potassium deficiency include abnormally dry, patchy skin as well as the the opposite extreme - oily skin and acne.
Sulfur: Sulfur is an essential mineral for enabling cells to breathe oxygen as well as convert toxins into non toxic particles. The presence of sulfur is vital to the synthesis of collagen - an important compound for skin health.
Sodium Chloride: Sodium plays a detoxifying role, allowing cells to expel toxins by converting them into waste. Also essential for the absorption of other nutrients.
Bromide: Has natural anti-biotic properties and helps with the rebuilding of cell in the body.
Zinc: Facilitates skin renewal and stimulates collagen and elastin synthesis. Has some anti-inflamatory and natural uv ray blocker properties.
Calcium: Plays an important roll in cell protection as well as cell membrane permeability, thereby allowing for better absorption of nutrients.

For more information on the 100% Dead Sea Bath Salts please visit HERE!

My opinion- I love this dead sea salt!!!! I have a skin condition that causes great pain  A LOT and after soaking in the bath my skin was put a ease for sometime, I loved the way it made my skin feel soft and smooth. It was very relaxing just knowing the benefits i was receiving while enjoying a good soak!


Adovia Dead Sea Mineral Lift Serum

Imagine taking all the legendary beauty properties of The Dead Sea Minerals and salts and concentrating them all into a highly potent serum. Now imagine adding to that an advanced formula of anti-aging ingredients and vitamins including Bearberry, Green Tea, Seaweed, Vitamin C and more. What you get is our highly concentrated, mineral rich serum designed to effectively smooth and firm the skin.
This deep absorbing, light gel is formulated with natural ingredients to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by increasing your skin's elasticity and firmness. Based on a unique formula of Vitamin C, Evening Primrose Oil and Dead Sea minerals, it instantly moisturizes to improve your skin's texture - giving you a radiant, smooth and even complexion. Amino acids combined with Green Tea extract and Vitamin C help your skin naturally regenerate - creating a firmer, more youthful appearance. Additionally it protects skin from daily pollutants and weather damage that can clog pores and cause wrinkles and breakouts.
Directions: Apply a few drops of serum to the face and neck, especially around the eyes and mouth where wrinkles tend to develop. Using Mineral Anti Age Serum on a regular basis will result in skin restored with a smoother texture and a soft supple appearance. This serum is concentrated so just a little bit goes a long way!

For more information on the Dead Sea Mineral Lift Serum please visit HERE!

My opinion- This serum is great, it makes my skin feel smooth and refreshed like a mini face lift!! I do however think that it is a bit pricy(but its on sale right now for 49.95$) If you have the cash and need an awesome face serum this is the product for you!!!!

BabyBjorn Travel Crib Light 2 Review and Giveaway!!

The Holiday travel season is upon us, many people are packing up the kids to visit friends and family. When making the plans ahead of time the first thing i think is, “where is my baby going to sleep?” If staying at a hotel the thought of my baby sleeping in one of their "cribs" does not go over well with me. You just never know how well these people clean. I would recommend bringing your own bed for baby. I always get tired of lugging our heavy Pack-N-Play with us, an extra 20-30lb needless space taker upper!!!. Not very travel convenient in my opinion! 

So with that said i would love to introduce you to BABYBJÖRN!!
I was contact by BABYBJÖRN to review their lovely  Travel Crib Light 2!

The BABYBJÖRN Travel Crib Light 2 is the perfect crib to take with you on trips. It weighs only 11 pounds (5 kg) and is set up in one simple movement. It comes with a case that is as handy as an ordinary bag. Sleeping away from home with small children has never been easier.
Simple set up,  in just one simple movement. When you’re not using it, simply fold it up to take with you or store it in its case. Safety, The sturdy mattress keeps the travel crib firmly on the floor. The crib’s inward sloping sides create a snug and cozy feeling, and the soft fabrics feel nice against baby’s skin.
All of the fabric on Travel Crib is removable and machine-washable to make clean-up a easy peeze pie!! The best part, the BABYBJÖRN Travel Crib Light 2 has no harmful chemicals or allergens. Yippee!  
 The BABYBJÖRN Travel Crib Light 2 is a great option for on-the-go. It comes in 3 colors (silver, black and blue) and retails for a pricey $279 but if you travel a lot and don’t like to hassle with the traditional Pack-N-Plays this is the product for you!! We just love love love the BabyBjorn Travel Crib Light 2!!

Ball of HELL!

Right this moment I'm so sick of people....

I feel like I'm going to burst into a big flaming ball of HELL! I'm sick to death of people and their stupid ways of thinking, Sometimes i look at a person and think to myself what planet did you come from? Maybe it's ME, maybe I'm the one who actually came from another planet, another world because i seem to be the only one with a freaking brain... OR a heart!!! I don't even need to get started on selfish people...


And another thing I can't even have this little space on the net to express fully what i want too, because i have stalkers who check my blog 50 million flucking times a day to try and find things to use against my family or just to be nosy flucktards who really couldn't give a shat about two little girls, they just want DIRT! How respectable is that?? So go ahead and share by blog with lies claiming my blog is for this and that. Hell do it, your just bringing me more traffic!!!!!


To my actually friends,family and readers who CARE about this blog and our Princesses, Thank you!!
I refuse to stop doing what i love, documenting my children's lives and reviewing products for awesome companies!!!!

Christmas Wish List!

I flipping lost Katie's Christmas wish list..... 
 I'm desperately trying to remember what was on it...
I think i will have her write up a new one with the excuse that i sent the old one to Santa and now Mommy needs a copy lol 
So here are some of Katie's wishes that i can remember!

LPS- She is totally addicted!





I will add the rest when she gets Mommy that new copy!

&
Here are some cute things that we seen around and thought Gracie would love to have!




I know i will see more things around to add to her's too!

Oh, and I can not forget MINE!! hehe I've been a AWESOME girl this year so Mommy deserves to wish too!!




Yes, I would love to get these things for myself BUT as long as my girls get somethings off of their list that would make my Christmas the BEST Christmas ever!
Hoping to get started on the shopping ASAP. 
With money being tight it may take some time( i know i can hear you now TIME???, Christmas is next month) I know I know!!! I'm just very lucky that we have raised our 7 year old to be grateful for what she has, she may not have a lot and of course she gets mad that she can't have the things her friends have but she knows that those things are NOT love, love is what we CAN afford in mass amounts!! 
A bed room full of toys means nothing without love!!!!!!
