Review & Giveaway: Custom Knits For Baby

 The Truth's Thoughts:

 I was so happy when I got the chance to review Custom Knits for Baby and I knew what I wanted before I even looked at everything on the site. As you can see the sweater my son has on in the photo (don't pay no mind to his face he just woke up). The sweater fit my son very well and he was so happy when he got it. I took the photo a few days later. He wanted to put it on right away but I wouldn't let him because it was so hot. But as you can see in the photos that the sweater is a very nice fit on him. The sweater is not really thick like some can be. I know he will wear this sweater out once winter hits. He loves the Falcon's and really liked how his last name was on the back. The number 11 is because his Step-Dad's father was a cab driver and his taxi number was 11. He was killed a few years back so we put 11 on just about everything. If you are looking for a great gift for a child with a little personal touch or know some one about to have a baby head on over to Custom Knits for Baby and check out their site. I am sure you will find something you like.

Review & Giveaway: ChicWrap

ChicWrap is a must have for anyone who shares a passion for cooking.  ChicWrap is the next generation of plastic wrap with its ZipSafe Slide Cutter, professional quality plastic wrap, strong wipe-clean box, and non-skid rubber feet.  Available in six designs, ChicWrap is only $9.99 and works with all brands of plastic wrap.

If you're anything like me, you get frustrated by plastic wrap.  It doesn't cut evently and I've wasted more than I've used by the time I'm done wrapping a bowl or container.  When I received a ChicWrap in the Modem Dot design for review, I was ready to figure out what this was going to be all about. After I used it the very first time I have found the frustrations of plastic wrap doesn't have to be a big deal.   To use the ChicWrap, all you have to do is pull out the desired amount of plastic wrap and run the Zip Safe Slide Cutter across its tracks to cut off the plastic wrap. It is simple to use and a bit time saver for me. I just place my plate or bowl right in front of the of the stylish box and pull out the wrap that I need and then slide the cutter over. I then wrap up my plate.

The only complaint I have is that instructions are not included on how to assemble the ZipSafe Slide Cutter and non-skid rubber feet.  There are small illustrations on the bottom of the box but they were a tad confusing for me.  Thanks to my husband we got it all figured out.

Win It!
One person will win a ChicWrap (design will be chosen by sponsor).

Review & Giveaway: Decal My Walls

The Truth's Thoughts:
I just bought my first house and want to get some stuff up on the wall. What a better way than with wall decals. I love my decals, I have all over my house so when I was giving the chance to review them though, I was very happy about it. I went to their site and kept looking around. It was so hard to pick what I wanted because everything was so great and I fell in love with all of them. But I was after one thing for my kid's room. I ended up getting them a decal that said "A little dirt never hurt". As you can see here. they really like it and it fit them so well because I have two little boys and they are always getting dirty. Then I ended up getting one for me. It was very beautiful and I really love it. I just got married to I got a decal that is has the first letter in my last name. My husband really like it so he put it on our front door. Everyone has asked me where I got it from and said that they really liked where I put it at. I tell them all about and they all say they are going to go and look right away. Most of my friends are like me and are in love with wall decals.

 The Truth's Thoughts:
I really liked my Noodle & Boo. I was sent the Essential Care Kit to try out for my review. I used my care kit as a gift to my brother-in-law's girlfriend who is about to have a baby this Aug. She loved it and said it smelled great. She said could not wait till Amber was here so she could use it out. But she could not wait to use the lotion, so she put some on her hands and said it was wonderful. There was no oil feeling left behind. Noodle & Boo would be great for your baby or even a great gift idea for a baby shower. Moms are always looking for great skin care for their babies and Noodle & Boo has this down.

Atlanta Falcons Mini-Camp

Back on June 20, while we was in Atlanta, GA for a week. We got the chance to go see the Atlanta Falcons train at their mini-camp. It was something we knew would could not past up because my husband is from GA and that is his favorite team. When he ran across the post on Facebook and told the rest of the family that was with us in Atlanta, we all was ready to go. My nephew plays football and he was so excited. Here is a few photos from the event. Even a photos of all the kids with one of the Falcons players.
