Old Fashioned DVD, Novel & Devotional Review & Giveaway

With Olivia getting older these days, it's soon going to be time to look into what we have to look forward to when she is ready to date, if we will let her ever. Haha. Well I know there is the controversy about the Duggar's and how they won't let their kids really date but they will allow them in a courtship. Well that is how my grandparents grew up and how I have honestly thought about allowing Olivia do instead of dating.

Old Fashioned DVD is a romantic drama about a former frat boy, Clay Walker, who gives up his reckless corousing and now runs an antique store. There, he has become notorious for his lofty and outdated theories on love and romance as well as for his devout belief in God. When Amber Hewson, a free-spirited young woman with a restless soul, drifts into the area and rents the apartment above his shop, she finds herself surprisingly drawn to his strong faith and noble ideas, which are new and intriguing to her. And Clay, though he tries to fight and deny it, simply cannot resist being attracted to her spontaneous and passionate embrace of life. Ultimately, Clay must step out from behind his relational theories and Amber must overcome her own fears and deep wounds as the two of them, together, attempt the impossible: an "old-fashioned" and God-honoring courtship in contemporary America. This is such a great DVD and has made me think about how I may want to allow Olivia to date or to court instead. 

The Novel is the same as the DVD and it was hard to put down. I read it while we were on vacation! The Devotional has been my favorite of all! Contrary to popular opinion, being "old fashioned" doesn't mean you're dull or unromantic.  In fact, a true old fashioned relationship can be more exciting and romantic than anything you've ever experienced!  So what does it mean to do things the old fashioned way?  Sure, it means opening doors, holding out chairs, and taking things slow.  But a true old fashioned romance goes much, much deeper than that.  Inspired by the motion picture Old Fashioned, this book will show you how to reclaim the lost art of romance by introducing you to romantic love as God intended it.  Regardless of your past mistakes, where you've been, what you've done, or where you are now, you can find and create a love that will last a lifetime!  As you work your way through this forty-day journey of inspiring readings and questions for reflection, you'll discover all the unique and amazing benefits of doing things the old fashioned way.  And before you know it, you'll be well on your way to creating a love story for the ages. I highly recommend getting this book to keep for yourself to share with your spouse.

First Response Pregnancy Test Influencer


“I participated in a Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for First Response. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

Are you trying to get pregnant or are wondering are you pregnant? If so then why not check out First Response's Newly Designed Pregnancy Test! I have personally used First Response several times for the first two times I was pregnant and will continue to use them in the future. One thing that Jason and I are looking forward to is adding to our family. First Response has been used for many years and honestly I feel like they are the best pregnancy test for finding out if you are pregnant or not. With First Response all you need to do is pee on the stick and they have a new stick that allows a longer handle, it's cutting edge curved design for it being more comfortable in your hand, and a better design for you to not get urine all over your hands or fingers. Plus it has a 50% larger tip on the test which will allow you to have more access to getting a better test result! You also can use it at any time of the day which is a plus because I used the first pregnancy test in the afternoon and found out I was pregnant with the first one. The when I was thinking I was pregnant with Olivia I used it in the morning which I found out I was pregnant then. Of course I had to take about another 5 tests just to make sure but yep, I was pregnant and about 8 months later it was time to meet Olivia! 

First Response Pregnancy Tests are available at any major retailer for around $8.99 to $15.99. They are FDA Approved, have been designed to detect all relevant forms of urinary hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) throughout pregnancy. I haven't taken any pregnancy tests in about a year when I found out I lost a baby but when I do take it, then I will be hopefully able to carry the baby this go round. I can't wait to be able to carry another one and of course take it on family vacations with us each year. Even if that means that I won't be able to run a race, it's ok because adding to the family is more important. You can take this test 6 days before the day of your missed period and honestly that's a great time scale for me. Once you take a test you will get your results within 3 minutes and a test that has two pink lines on it means it's positive and you are expecting your little one or little ones. How exciting is that? I think it's very exciting! To learn more just go to the First Response Website which is where I will be going when we find out we are pregnant!!! They have a lot of neat information on there that I find is really cool! I actually think that when we get back from our little outing for our 3 year wedding anniversary then I will take a test. I haven't been feeling very great and honestly it would be great if I am pregnant.

Dance or Gymnastics...that is the question?

Lately Olivia has been changing her mind in what sport or extra activity she wants to do next fall. She has been talking for years of doing gymnastics but after a few things happening at school she has decided to not do it and may make the decision to go back to doing dance. I can't tell you how much this excites me because it only means that maybe I can get Olivia into doing the competitions as well. I think that she would be awesome at it and for the social activity then she would be getting her social activity here alone. I am only torn between which studio to put her in. We had her in Crystal's Elite Dance Studio and honestly I enjoyed them teaching Olivia while we had her there. Then there is a new studio in town as well. So it's going to be down to decision making time come the end of summer beginning of fall.

She told me that she really wants to do ballet, tap, clogging and hip hop so this might be a perfect activity for her to stay active and to stay busy. I am hoping and secretly praying that she picks dance so that I can be a dance mom again and I can show my support for dance! I loved dancing when I was younger and miss my days of competition and all that fun. So this would be an amazing way for her to enjoy herself and have fun and meet new people again!

Hillsong United's Empires Album Review & Giveaway!


Have I ever told any of you that I love listening to Hillsong and Hillsong United? We first started listening to Hillsong back in 1998 and we fell in love with the songs that they sang. We fell in love with several and even tried to sing them in our church for the youth group, but at the time we just weren't allowed to. It was too risky. Too contemporary for the Southern Baptist Church that we belonged to. But now a days, we go to a Church of God of Prophecy church and we worship the Lord with songs sung and written by Hillsong United! We listen to them in the car, have their albums and even have many of their DVD's. Yes, we are that obsessed with them and their praise and worship music. This new album by Hillsong United is no different! Empires is an amazing album and it hasn't left my CD player in the 4Runner or in my MacBook Pro. Some of my favorite songs off this album has to be Here Now, Say the Word, When I Lost My Heart To You, and Even When It Hurts. I have listened to those songs over and over because they have meaning to me in some way or another. Here are all the songs that are on the album:

  1. Here Now (Madness)
  2. Say The Word
  3. Heart Like Heaven
  4. Touch The Sky
  5. Street called Mercy
  6. When I Lost My Heart to You (Hallelujah)
  7. Even When It Hurts
  8. Prince of Peace
  9. Empires
  10. Rule
  11. Captain
  12. Closer than You Know
I have to say that I think this is an album in which I will be sharing with many people who love Hillsong United as well. I'm even more excited to know that they are going to be in Greensboro, NC on July 27th this year! I hope that I can go see them on tour this summer! Also check out their website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
