Today has been a trying and complicated day for me. As I was writing my blogs and reviews it seems that my site went down for me to view. Ugh. Can you say annoying and really irritating. I sat there thinking to myself "I have just lost almost 8 years or more of blog posts" and thankfully it's back up now. Whew. That was close.
Now that Christmas is almost a week away, I am not even close to being ready. I haven't really bought for Olivia yet. I am going to go get a few things for her this week but that's it. Then we have a few things to do with her this week that kind of limits what we can do.
Are you ready for Christmas?

Jason and I have been married for almost 3 years now and we haven't been able to get pregnant yet. It's not from lack of trying or anything but it's just that we haven't been lucky enough to conceive. Lately though we haven't been able to conceive just because he has been on the road during the time of my ovulation so it's been hard for that but other than that we obviously would be pregnant.
I was contacted by Conceive Easy, LLC to try out their product for 2 months, Conceive Easy TTC Kit and so I did. I have to say that it has been a trying time and while not easy to get pregnant for us especially with a husband on the road more than he is at home is harder than it seems. But for spouses who are home more often then this is the perfect kit for you to try out!
The Conceive Easy TTC Kit is a great option for women who are wanting to give their fertility a boost in a natural way. According to BabyResource.com, 1 in 8 couples will experience some form of fertility issue in their lifetime. It's a priceless gift for any couple to have access to tools to help combat fertility issues should they arise. The Conceive Easy TTC Kit comes with everything a couple could possibly need to try to conceive. Included in this kit is a 2 month supply of the all-natural Conceive Easy Fertility supplement, a handy Getting Started Guide, a basal body thermometer to monitor temperature and track ovulation, and the choice of 20 free ovulation tests or 20 free pregnancy tests.
According to PregnancyTips.org, one of the best ways women can improve their chances of conceiving is to use a fertility blend supplement along with charting and tracking ovulation. The Conceive Easy TTC Kit makes the process of trying to get pregnant simple and easy. Our friends at DiaperChamp.com say that women who want to get pregnant should be proactive and try to find ways to help boost their own fertility, instead of waiting for it to happen on it's own. The Conceive Easy TTC Kit is a great way to do just that.
While Jason and I aren't pregnant just yet, we plan on continuing to try. If we continue to not being able to conceive then our next step is to just adopt. I highly recommend this TTC Kit because I have a good friend who used it and got pregnant on it.

If anyone know my daughter, Olivia, they will know that she is obsessed with animals. She has always been obsessed with them and honestly it will surprise me if she one day doesn't become a vet or has nothing to do with animals. She is passionate about them and about caring for them and well it breaks my heart when I have to tell her no a lot when she asks to bring lost puppies and kittens home but I don't want to be one of those crazy cat ladies either.
Anyways, Susie's Hope DVD was perfect for Olivia and I to watch together. She fell in love with the movie immediately and honestly she took over it for a few days in which I didn't get to watch until she went to her dad's for the weekend because she took over it. I knew she would fall in love with the movie. It is based on a true story and it's based on how a woman, Donna Lawrence was attacked by a neighbors pitbull who she had been feeding and giving water and barely made it. She honestly was lucky to be alive after the attack. During her recovery, Donna and her friend made a gruesome discovery of a pitbull puppy who had been beaten and burned to the point of her ears were burned off and there was no hope given for the puppy to even survive. But Donna gave the puppy a name, Susie and gave her hope that not only she was going to make it but she was going to recover through this tragic attack on her ask well. It was through Susie that Donna started making progress on her recovery and soon they both started making a tremendous recovery together. Donna Lawrence even helped pass a law in North Carolina called "Susie's Hope" to help prevent other animals from ever having to take what happened to Susie. Susie, nor any other animal should ever be or have been treated this way and it breaks my heart that they are each and every day. We need to look back and see what we can do to help those out who can't take care of their animals to just give them up for adoption to those who want and need pets.
We adopted Yoda back in March and while at the time, living in the house we were living it, probably didn't sound like it was a good idea, has been the best thing for our little family. He is loving and yet he still has issues that we have to deal with but you know what, I don't know where he would be if we hadn't adopted him. We one day might adopt another dog and possible kitten for Olivia...but no worries not too soon. He's plenty of energy now and full of life and well he's enough to handle for now. Check out the trailer for Susie's Hope below...it's a tear jerker but let me say it's very motivational and makes me want to adopt more animals in the future!

Do your children like Veggietales? Are they obsessed like my daughter Olivia is? If so then you have to check out this amazing Bible DVD series for kids called "What's In The Bible?" It's a super cute movie that honestly Olivia has fallen in love with. She thought that it was going to be too kidish for her but I popped it in the DVD player in the car where she had no other choice but to watch it (yes I can be evil like that sometimes) and she has watched it over and over. I've even thought about purchasing the same DVD for my niece because she recently started going to preschool at a local Church and I think she would really enjoy it. We received Volume 10: Jesus Is The Good News and let me say it makes learning and understanding the Bible a lot easier for children by far. I know that Veggietales does this as well, but this one really makes you understand it. The characters in the DVD series are just like you are reading it out of the Bible which makes it even more special to me.
The DVD includes two 25 minutes stories which is amazing and I believe really kept Olivia's attention too. Sometimes I feel that some of the movies that she watches are just too short or too long and this one was just perfect. Plus it's perfect for those short rides in the car from school to the doctors office and so forth. I highly recommend this for parents, grandparents or for anyone who wants to get little ones something that is entertaining yet they will still get to know who Jesus is and will learn. Christmas is just 2 weeks away and what an easy gift to give them.
Check out the trailer below for the DVD that I received and check out the website too!
The Song is also part of a movie that was released back in September and I really wanted to go see it but did not get to. But you can also check out the resource website, twitter and facebook. Once it's on DVD I will be getting the movie to have in my collection because I felt like it was a great book and the movie has to be just as good.
