Manduka eKO Lite® Mat

Having had back to back pregnancies, one in 2007 and the second in 2009 (in which I bore a set of 6 1/2 and and almost 7 lb twin babies!!) My body was quite different than it was before. I had a lot of pounds to lose and I have done that and then some, in fact I am almost at the same weight I was at 19! No easy feat since I will soon turn 30 (yikes!!)

I am glad to have the weight off, but I still need to reshape my body, to feel some since of normalcy. That is why I have recently taken up yoga. It is also great at helping me start my day in a more peaceful way. (If you didn't do the math, I currently have a set of 2 yr old twins and a 4 yr old!) Manduka eKo lite Mats are a fantastic tool to use during a daily yoga session. I LOVE that it is non toxic and dye free! As some of you know, I participate as a Bzzagent and this is a program they are about to launch. I would love to be selected to give it a try! If you would like to check out this campaign and many, many others check out Bzzagent.

Madden NFL 12

Other than our precious 3 little ones and maybe his awesome wife (me, of course!), there are 2 things my husband loves more than anything: Football and Video Games. Even better, a game about football. The absolute best, ANY Madden football. According to him, it is the most realistic football game for any game system and he really enjoys playing Madden '10 when he gets a chance. What he would love even more, is the newest addition- Madden 12 for Xbox 360. He has been playing Madden games for as long as he can remember and will continue to for as long he can. Bzzagent, my favorite word of mouth marketing website, has a campaign for Madden about to launch and I would LOVE to tell me husband that we have been selected to give it a try! Fingers Crossed! :)

The Help by Kathryn Stockett

What do a recent college graduate and her friends' maids in 1960's Jackson, Mississippi have to talk about? In the novel "The Help," plenty! Skeeter wants to write a great novel and at the same time find out exactly what it is that happened to the maid that raised her from childhood, who has suddenly vanished without explanation! They will learn all about each other through their contributions to the novel, but in the end, they will learn plenty about themselves they probably never knew.

This is an amazing debut novel by Kathryn Stockett, it was by far one of my favorite Kindle reads of the summer. I love the way that it weaves 4 different prospective's together to form one great novel. Bzzagent currently has a campaign with this novel as the star. I would love to add it to my bookshelves!

Trend Micro Titanium

Trend Micro Titanium is a step up from the typical internet protection. There is a really unique labeling system for links that helps you determine what you should be and shouldn't be clicking on. This is especially helpful on Facebook and Twitter. I love that they are color coded, so with just a quick gland you know whether you should trust that link or not! I would recommend this software to anyone, it is definitely a helpful tool . Trend Micro Titanium has really taken the guesswork out of website safety for me! Thanks to Bzzagent for yet another great campaign to be a part of!

Daily Bzz stick blender

Another day, another really awesome daily bzz that I'd LOVE to be chosen to be a part of. The Cuisinart stick blender...I will beg, plead, do whatever it takes to get in on this one!! You see, I have 3 little ones, a 4 year old daughter and identical 2 year old twin sons and them having a healthy start in life is my number one priority and that starts at the dinner table at home. I make the majority of our food from scratch at home so I know exactly what they are consuming. Having a Cuisinart stick blender as a tool in our kitchen would help cut down on prep time for a lot of these foods and that is important too, as I previously mentioned, I have 3 little ones!

There is another really important reason I NEED the stick blender. All of the kids and I have sensitive skin and I have been gathering up materials for a while to make our own health and beauty products. A stick blender is essential to the process of creating lotions, shampoos and the like at home and it is one of the last thingsI need to begin this process.

I know if chosen, I will rave and rave to all of my mama friends who also enjoy cooking for their families and right here on this very blog.

So please, please, pretty PLEASE Bzzagent, pick me today for this campaign! I can't wait to get started in the kitchen with it!

Why I need in the Bodum glass campaign!

I am LOVING the new Daily Bzz that bzzagent has started. There are several campaigns up for grabs this week that I would LOVE to get into! The Bodum campaign is an especially good one for me. You see, after years of renting my husband, 3 little ones and I are working on buying a house this winter! As a way to not be out a tremendous amount of money all at once, we are slowly upgrading the things in our house, especially the kitchen. I would love to try out the Bodum glasses so I can see how I feel about their products. It is highly possible we will buy more if we live the glasses because they are really pretty and would look great at a new house. Bzzagent- please help us kickstart our journey to having our own, beautiful house!!
