I'm Drawing A Blank...

So lately my blog has suffered from lack of use.  I just can't think of what to write. 

I still have my list of ideas, but I have to find it, because, like everything else I touch, I lost it. 

So this is a pretty boring entry.  I had a birthday, on the 7th, so I am now officially old.  Well not officially, but still.  I am about 4-6 years older than I thought I would be at this point in my life (childless, living with a room mate in an apartment). 

I get to baby-sit at my house now, which is awesome. 

At the end of the month I am going to visit my family out of state.  (Sorry trick-or-treaters, we won't be here to hand out candy)  Which is fun, but sad.  Fun for obvious reasons, sad because my husband works retail so he isn't allowed to have time off at the holidays.  :(  Hopefully they will head over here.

I tried making bread in my bread machine.  It turned out pretty good.  Fruit flies seem to surround it when I leave it out, which is creepy, but seemingly meaningless since no one has gotten sick and its tastes fine.  I also tried my slow-cooker, and the food was pretty delicious if I do say so myself.

On Saturday I am going to the pumpkin patch.  I'm borrowing (baby-sitting) my friends daughter to go along with me and my friend so we don't look quite as weird at the pumpkin patch.

Wow.  This was a super exciting entry.  That was an attempt at sarcasm, which never works in writing, except in dialogue, so we'll try again "Wow.  This was a super exciting entry." she said sarcastically.

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs

- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…

Manipulatives Monday GIVEAWAY from Mother Goose Time - closed

Giveaway closed! Thank you so much to everyone who entered, I really appreciate it!
I have excellent news!  Today is Manipulatives Monday, and Mother Goose Time is giving away a great prize!  One lucky winner will receive TWO bags of manipulatives!  Mother Goose Time will chose the prizes, but I assure you, whatever they send will be a lot of fun for your children!

Manipulatives are a big hit in our house.  Every month we get two new bags of manipulatives, and every month Little Guy asks if he can play with them before the month starts.  The answer is always no, but he tries every month anyways.  During the month we use them for the assigned activities but after we are done with the curriculum, I let him add them to his toy collection.
One thing that is in almost every box is a set of counters.  These are often in the shape of animals, which are Little Guy's favorites.  They are used for a variety of activities, and are always multiple colors, sizes, and/or shapes so they can be …
