A Bakers Dream Giveaway


Oh sweet cupcakes! After receiving a package of zebra pink cupcake liners, breast cancer sprinkles and other cupcake goodies from The Creative Baking Shop, I couldn't wait to start baking and this review! 

Even though I am far from a baker, I do enjoy making sweet treats here and there! Today I used unsweetened applesauce instead of butter/oil in the boxed cake directions. I couldn't tell the difference in taste, and isn't it a great feeling to save any extra calories in the sweet treats department. 



My favorite product was the breast cancer sprinkles...uh can you say CUTE! Plus, they tell a great story to whomever you decide to share the goodies with :) I won't tell if you eat three or four all by yourself ;) Another favorite product was the adorable zebra cupcake liners. The pink/white added the perfect girlie touch. Mmmwah! 

Best part about the products from The Kreative Baking Shop was that everything came without being broken! I appreciate when companies spend the extra time and money to bubble wrap delicate products. 

Make sure to check out The Kreative Baking Shop. The store is loaded with adorable and affordable baking goods! My favorite Christmas pick from their shop is the Jumbo Red and Green Sprinkles - AH! Those would look perfect on any Christmas sugar cookie. Best part is the bottle is only $2.50! Now that's a good deal for cute sprinkles!



Now to the final giveaway for Breast Cancer Awareness month. Special thanks to The Kreative Baking Shop for sponsoring this giveaway. The winner will receive a four ounce bottle of pink ribbon sprinkles, 12 pink ribbon sugar dec-ons, pink ribbon cookie cutter and pink /white zebra baking cups! Now that's a bakers dream giveaway!

Free Halloween Printable: Shh... Mummies Little One is Sleeping!

Have you ever had a really productive day? Right now I'm questioning how I managed to accomplish so many things on little sleep! ha Doing the dishes twice, blending spinach with water to freeze for smoothies, vacuuming, playing with the baby, going on a walk, feedings, diaper changes, sorting laundry, weekly menu planning, organizing coupons, scrubbing the heck out of nasty stained baby clothes and working on the blog. Even though today went by fast, one of my favorite activities is the free printable below :) 

The printable is a doorknob hanger. This festive printable will help remind family and friends in a gentle way to keep their voices down when passing the baby's room. 


Seriously, I love entertaining, but when guests wake my baby from laughing loudly while walking to the bathroom all I want to do is say "do you know how hard it is to get my baby to sleep!" Have you ever had this problem? If so what are your tips and tricks to keeping your munchkin asleep during parties/entertaining?


Good news this printable has simple instructions. All you need to do is print, attach a piece of string and hang around a doorknob. Pretty simple, right? 

Here are the links to print full size doorknob hangers:
*Mummies Little Guy
*Mummies Little Girl

Have a great week! Make sure to check out where I party!

A Divine Sugar Scrub Review and Giveaway

What girl doesn't like a good pampering? One of the best and cheapest ways to achieve pampering at home is through sugar scrubs! Oh my heavenly happiness, nothing says a Mommy's night off like a sugar scrub and an at home pedicure. 

My Sweet Sugar recently sent me a sample of their lemon/lavender scrub. First let me give you background on why I LOVE this product. All herbs that are in the scrubs come directly from the owners garden (Nature at it's finest). 




Courtney, owner of My Sweet Sugar started making scrubs while pregnant as a natural way to combat stretch marks. I'm sure every Mom can relate to the new look of stretch marks. I remember thinking "Oh my gosh these marks are huge!" Even though my stretch marks didn't go away, I'm proud of my Mommy lines. :) Although this product doesn't cure stretch marks, the scrubs definitely assist in exfoliating skin. All the scrubs will leave your skin feeling soft and rejuvenated.  


Now onto the review! While opening the scrub I was filled with the sweet aroma of lavender and lemon. What a fantastic combination! Seriously, I stopped everything to try this scrub!  After using the product my hands had a silky soft texture. Oh lala! The hubby was even impressed ;) The scrub had the right mixture of sugar, herbs and oil. I enjoyed the wooden scoop, which gave the perfect amount of sugar scrub to my skin. 


If you are looking for a good gift under $15 you should definitely check out these scrubs!



Now onto the giveaway!
Special thanks to our wonderful sponsor My Sweet Sugar

All Natural Hand-Crafted Soap Giveaway



A couple days ago I received a free sampler of products from Maine Mountain Soap and Candle Company. As a disclaimer: I'm not being paid to write this post/giveaway. All thoughts and feelings about the following products are mine. 

Upon opening the Maine Mountain Soap and Candle products I was immediately brought back to my childhood. 

Growing up in Utah I have been given many opportunities to see National Park wonders. Needless to say the rich mountain smell had me reminiscing the 'good ole' days of hiking at Zions National Park. If you haven't visited this park - you must make time to go next time you visit Utah. The park is loaded with natural beauty and amazing hikes!
2012 - Vacation to Zions National Park (a couple weeks before we got married). What a view, right?
Below contains the list of Pro's I found with the products and a major tip.

The Pro's

*Maine Mountain Soap and Candle Company focuses on the model "reduce, reuse and recycle," which I LOVE! GO GREEN my friends!
*The rich mountain fragrance will make you want to go on vacation or camping in the woods.
*The Natural Wicked Awesome Lip Balm leaves a tingling sensation. Perfect for smooch-able lips ;)
*Balsam Fir Castile Soap Concentrate is made for those who have sensitive skin (like me). 
*The Felted Balsam Fir Bar Soap left my skin feeling soft and refreshed.
*No leaks from any products during shipping! :)

There was only one main tip I had for the sampler and that is below.

Tip
*Don't use too much Balsam Fir Castile Soap Concentrate or the smell might overpower the room.  If you use in smaller doses this product will be great for washing hands and smaller cleaning tasks. :) 

Seriously, if you are into green and other natural products check out the Natural Wicked Awesome Lip Balm!  This product makes the perfect eco-friendly stocking stuffer ;) 

Now onto the giveaway!
Special thanks to our wonderful sponsor Maine Mountain Soap and Candle Company

Week 5 Scripture Challenge: The Influence of a Mother

As a Mother I hope and pray my daughter and future children will take the knowledge I give them and use it for good.  Thank heavens I had such a great Mom. I cannot begin to count the numerous acts of service she has given not only me, but all my siblings! Not to mention all the mornings seeing her say prayers and reading the scriptures. Wow, what a woman! If I turn out anything like her my kids will be blessed, especially if I can master the Swedish Ginger Cookie recipe ;) 

Below contains a list of great Motherhood quotes and the scripture challenge. 

The influence of a mother
 in the lives of her children 
is beyond calculation. 
-James E. Faust

There is no role in life 
more essential and more eternal 
than that of Motherhood. 
-M. Russel Ballard

 To all Mothers you make a difference, one that changes and shapes nations. Memorize this scripture from the Book of Mormon and have a great week :) Make sure to enter the current giveaways through clicking on the "giveaway" tab!

Breast Cancer Volunteering and All Things Pink Giveaway

Get Involved! The best way to spread awareness for Breast Cancer is to get involved! Sure, donations are great, but volunteering no matter how big or small makes a difference. Below are a few great organizations to get involved with. Don't forget that there are many great organizations that support cancer research. Do the research and get involved!


National Breast Cancer Foundation

If you cannot find an event near you don't fret there are plenty of other ways to get involved. Click for more information on how to volunteer. Becoming an advocate for hope is a great way to spread awareness to everyone about breast cancer through social media. 

American Cancer Society 

I love the event finder tool. This website feature allows anyone to connect and get involved with a great cause. For all my Utah readers there is an event on Oct. 11, 2014 called "Making Strides of Utah." This non-competitive 3-5 mile event helps not only those who have lost loved ones to breast cancer, but also those who are battling or have overcome this disease. Read more here about information on getting involved with the Utah event!

Susan G. Komen

You can help through fundraising, volunteering or becoming an advocate. Seriously, the Susan G. Komen organization has numerous of events and programs making volunteering even more rewarding! Who doesn't like volunteering, especially while doing something you love. 

IDEAS FOR VOLUNTEER WORK/FUNDRAISING (Research which organizations you would like the proceedings to go to)

  • Fashionistas: Why not host a Pink Fashion Show in honor of those affected by breast cancer. 
  • Runners: Help with planning a breast cancer run.
  • Dancers: Assist in planning a Dance-A-Thon for breast cancer support!
  • Sport Fanatics: Why not plan a football, baseball, hockey, etc... for breast cancer awareness/support!
  • Bakers: Who doesn't love a baked goods auction, especially for breast cancer? I'm a sucker for a pink cupcake! 
  • Poets: Help plan a poetry reading in honor of Breast Cancer at your local coffee shop/cafe. 
  • Musicians: Assist with planning a concert! 
Do you have any other great fundraising ideas?
