I've used Paul Mitchell Hairspray for years now. It is the absolute BEST! I've tried others and it's just not the same. It holds your style but is not hard and sticky. It also smells good which is an added bonus! There really isn't anything like it!!!:)
So, both of my boys LOVE their binkies!!! They just help to sooth them and calm them down. I have friends that had babies that wouldn't take them. I think I would be in a lot of trouble it that was my case. There are times when one baby needs me desperately and it is nice to know that the other can still be happy and calm without me at that moment. They also really help them to fall asleep. LOVE THEM!!!
Alright, I admit it...I LOVE Diet Sodas! It's like a special treat without the extra calories. Now, I know what some of you are thinking...soda, even diet soda, just isn't good for you. True. I just haven't found it in me to give it up. I try to be healthy and I do drink a lot of water (that makes it okay, right?!) but it kinda makes my day when I get to have some pop!!!
I have all of Josh Groban's albums. I LOVE his music...Shane might even say that I have a crush on him. Not true. I've seen him on some talk shows and I really don't think he's my type! However, his voice is beautiful and his music puts me in a good mood. I can't say I have a favorite album...all of them are great. I even have his new Christmas one...so good!
This book was given to me by my mom while I was pregnant. It was recommended to her by someone with twins. This book is saving my sanity! It talks about getting your baby to get good, healthy sleep. I am currently following what it teaches and it works! My boys are still really young but are learning to sleep so well...on their own! The best part...I'm getting my sleep which is the best thing I can do for my boys. When I'm rested, I'm a better, happier mother. I highly recommend the book!
If you know me or my mom very well, you know that I love a pretty smelling house! Probably because my mom's house ALWAYS smells so yummy. These are the BEST candles...Salt City. So many other candles smell for like a day and then the aroma vanishes. Not these. They are pretty darn strong. Some of my favorite scents...Cinnamon Vanilla, Sugar Cookie, German Struessel Cake, and Baked Apple. Right now I have Spiced Pumpkin...it was on sale after the holidays. Oh, so yummy!


I was hesitant at first about the ipod but I've seen the light! While I was in the hospital and had lots of time on my hands, I organized all of our music onto our ipod. It is so awesome!!! I had lots of different playlists to fit my various moods. It has all of our Sunday music as well as our Christmas music. The best part...you don't have to pack your CDs all around. It was one of the best purchases we've made. (Sorry, I think this one is excluded as a prize...I'm not that rich!)
Have you seen this movie??? Oh, so fun and entertaining. I love the music, the dancing, the actors, everything! It is also really clean which is always a plus. I really want to see the broadway production one of these days!



Alright, leave those comments and let me know what you think. Hey, you might be the lucky winner! I'll do the drawing in about a week so stay tuned...

What a cute idea. I think I know you pretty well, I probably could have guessed almost every one of those items. I am glad you are enjoying "Baby Wise". I've heard mixed reviews. It sounds like it's working though...let's talk soon.

I keep trying to find good candles these days. I guess I need to look harder to find Salt City. The Yankee's I have right now aren't strong enough. Love and miss you.

The Hairspray movie was cute and I love DIET...Pepsi, not Coke :) Salt City...oh how I miss them. Only Yankee Candle out here...have you ever tried Lime Twist?

Hi Amy!! I want to play! I think if I am drawn I would love the CD or a candle. We are all about good smelling houses our way too! I love cinnamon spice and apple smells but would love to try your favorite! Now I am going to go out and get some Paul Mitchell. I am picky about my hairspray smell as well!!

I would die without binkies! Kinsey loves her binky and I am not looking forward to the day that we will have to take it away...sad, sad day. I love Josh Groban too..I think we have all his CD's except the Christmas one, which I heard is good! I wanted to go see him in SLC this last summer but the tickets were a little pricey...bummer. I think I am going to go buy myself sone of those Salt City candles, I have seen them before but have never tried. I really like my house to smell yummy, but no matter how hard I try I am sure it smells like food and baby. THis is really long...sorry....last, I LOVED the movie Hairspray, I was sad that it didnt get even nominated for any awards:( "Good Morning Baltimore"

I'm going to have to vote for the Josh Groban CD (you know, since the ipod is out of the running). I don't have any of his CD's, but I like a lot of his songs.

I like listening to Josh Groban. I don't have many CDs of anyone, but I would love one of his.
