It is said that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish. 

I want to take this time to feature a very special little girl. Her name is Lizzie, she is 9 years old.

You see her little sister has to have her sugar levels checked in fear of diabetes. After hearing the news of a close friend who was diagnosed with Diabetes Lizzie decided she wants to help, raise money to find a cure.
For every dollar that is donated to Cranes 4 a Cure Lizzie will make a crane and put the name of the person who donated on the wing. Once she has collected $1000 she will string all the cranes together and give it to the Juvenile Diabetes foundation with all the money she has raised.
If you'd like to donate, please visit Cranes 4 a Cure or for more information you can email Lizzie's mommy, Jenny, at

Please take a few minutes to watch Lizzie's Interview:

Jody's Gourmet Popcorn Review

Wednesday, April 27, 2011

It all started when  Jody & Alan installed a commercial popper and carmelizer in their garage, along with a laboratory. This  husband and wife team spent long nights and days trying to develop the perfect sweet, crunchy caramel corn. Finally by the 53rd recipe Alan found perfection.

Jody's Gourmet Popcorn offer's a wide variety of snacks for any occasion. If you are looking for that unique gift for mothers day, I suggest you check some cute gifts out. I am sure mom will love them. 

Gourmet Felt Basket

Gourmet Tote

My personal favorite was the Chunky Choco Toffee Drizzle.

Confession Friday

Friday, April 22, 2011


I confess ~ I have been a bad blogger latley. Its not that I love blogging and all my bloggy friends, its just that I get burnt out never know what to write and feel disconnected.

I confess ~   I have been stalking my ex- sister-in-laws Facebook page just for a good laugh.

I confess ~ I am so over my neighbors and have been complaining about every little thing they do hoping to get them kicked out of my complex.

I confess ~ I spent most of my day at work surfing the web, however I did get my work done.

I confess ~ ever since I received the video of my son's performance for Boy's Hip Hop I have been watching it at least once a day.

Ok so now here is a HUGE confession....  I have been coming home from work sitting on the couch and watching TV all night until its bed time. Yes that means I am not working out

Ahhh I feel so much better now. If you want release some guilt I suggest you head over to and link With Glamazon & Mamarazzi up to Confession Friday.


We Want to Know Wednesday Q&A

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

The theme of the Q&A this week is Friendship:

1) Do you make friends easily?

Sometimes it takes me a while. I tend to be shy at first but I open up when I get to know you  

3) What 3 qualities are a must in a friend?

Be honest, loyal, and caring.

{3} What makes you a good friend?

I am always there no matter what for any of my friends, even thought I might disagree with their decisions I try my best to give my support. I am very trustworthy and when we have an argument I will be the first to apologize.

4) Have you ever met a bloggy friend in real life?

NO but I am hoping Mamarazzi has a little time when she is in my area in June.

Yes? tell us about your meet up. No? Who would you love to meet?

Hmmm this is a tough one, because I want to meet you all. Well of course Mamarazzi. Brandy from You Don’t Know, she is always making me laugh and her son is such a cutie. Ellen over at Fat Girl Wearing Thin, I was paired up with her for a swap, she is an amazing woman.

5) Who is your best friend? Tell us about them.

Lisa & I
We met in 3rd grade she had just moved to California 2 weeks before I did and the teacher sat us next to each other. We have had many up’s and downs throughout the years but I love her with all my heart and she will always be the Bestest Friend to me.

Jennifer & I
Jennifer is my BFF from High School.  Honestly I won’t can’t tell you how we first met, but I will say we have a lot of memories that make us laugh all the time. We are only 3 weeks apart, (yes I am older and she will never let me forget that) I don't know what I would do with out her.

T Shirt Review

T Shirt has over twenty years experience in the screen printing industry. You don't find to many companies that take pride in offering an honest, easy to understand way of doing business.

I received this cute monkey promo shirt and really liked the fact is was light weight, but not to thin.

I have a hard time finding shirts that fit just right. I really wish I new about this company when my son was involved in activities that required team shirts. After chatting with one of the representatives over at T Shirt I really felt that they were in the business for the customer.

Check out what they have to say.

What got your started in the Tshirt printing business
Having problems getting good quality printing done for our old clothing label.

What is the minimum order that needs to be purchased?

Can someone purchase the Monkey T-Shirt if they were interested?
Unfortunately not - these are promo only. 

Is everything Custom or do you have items on hand?
 Only custom

 What is the average turn around time for a order?
10 days
