Glade Expressions Review and Giveaway!

I love coming home to a fresh smelling house, unfortunately with a baby (lots of dirty diapers) that isn't always the case.  As much as I love scented candles, I don't really use them because I'm a little forgetful, and I'm afraid I'll leave them on by accident.  We've always been fans of Glade room sprays and now Glade has a new fragrance collection: Glade Expressions.
The new Glade Expressions Collection is the latest addition to the award-winning Glade portfolio.  The collection features two new fashionable designs including a Fragrance Mist and Oil Diffuser.  These new, contemporary designs are the perfect complement to any home's style and decor.  The collection is offered in the following fragrances:
  • Cotton & Italian Mandarin (Fragrance Mist only)
  • Pineapple & Mangosteen (Fragrance Mist & Oil Diffuser)
  • Fuji Apple & Cardamom Spice (Fragrance Mist & Oil Diffuser)
  • Lavender & Juniper Berry (Fragrance Mist & Oil Diffuser)
I really like the design of the new Fragrance Mist.  It's unique and stylish, and when you peel the sticker off, it blends right into any room.  It doesn't look like your typical room spray.  The Glade Expressions Fragrance Mist is a refillable fragrance spray.  You keep the base and buy refills.  I love the Cotton & Italian Mandarin fragrance I was sent.  It's a very clean and fresh scent, which is what I love my house to smell like!
The Glade Expressions Oil Diffuser delivers fragrance in an elegant design.  It's available in cream and bamboo panels.  Every starter kit comes with a decorative holder, oil bottle and diffuser card.  I received the Lavender & Juniper Berry Oil Diffuser with the cream panels.  The holder is really nice and looks great in any room.  The smell is awesome.  I had mine in the living room and when I woke up the next morning I could smell the fragrance down the hall and even into the kitchen.  I can't wait to try out the different fragrances, especially the Pineapple & Mangosteen!

One Lucky Mommy Loves Giveaways winner will a Glade Expressions Fragrance Mist and Oil Diffuser!

Guylian Chocolates Review & Giveaway

I have a very distinct memory from when I was a kid of a box of chocolates in the shape of seashells that my Uncle brought from Germany after being stationed there. I don't remember much else, but it's one of those random memories that's been stuck in my brain.




Fast forward to last week. After accepting an offer to review some chocolate (Guys, I will NEVER say no to chocolate, just so you know.) I received a box FULL of Guylian truffles, and what do you know, they were those same shell-shaped candies from that long, lost memory. Small world!

Of course, me and my boys dove right in. These Belgian chocolates are wonderful. You know our friends overseas definitley know how to do chocolate right. I took the small boxes to the girls on Valentine's Day and they raved about how good they were. These truffles with praline filling are so creamy. I could eat a whole (big) box by myself!

One lucky MLG reader will win the following:


To be entered just visit Guylian and tell me what sounds best to you!

Nutrisystem Weigh In Week 28

I'm happy to say I had a much better week this week, than last week.  Last week I was dealing with some personal issues that had me down in the dumps and reaching for comfort food, and I had a 2 pound weight gain.  This week I've been more focused and sticking with my Nutrisystem program and I've lost a pound.  I think I'm finally done with the excuses for my bad eating.  I'm ready to continue on my weight loss journey, and I plan on doing my best.

When I first started Nutrisystem I was super motivated and the results speak for themselves.  Sticking to the Nutrisystem program really works.  Around the holidays I started to get side tracked by all the goodies and I fell into a rut, but now I'm feeling motivated again.  I want to keep losing weight.  I've decided to give up soda for good.  I don't drink regular soda, but I drink diet soda and it interferes with my water intake.  So from now on I'm only going to drink water.  I'm also going to continue sticking to the Nutrisystem program.  I know if I do these things, the weight will start to come off again...I can't wait to see more results!!!

My husband really enjoys his watch.  He's worn it to work and school and has told me it is very soft and comfortable.  I chose the green "block" watch, because it's my son's favorite color and I knew he'd want to wear it.  He also helped pick the "block" style, saying he liked it best.  The "block" style is also my favorite, I think it looks very trendy.  I love that there is a variety of colors too choose from, I'm really digging the Pink and Purple colors.

I love being on Nutrisystem.  It's so easy and convenient.  I feel bad for falling off the wagon this week, especially with Valentine's Day coming up.   I know my husband is going to get me a box of See's candy and it's going to be hard fighting off all the chocolate temptation, BUT I really want to continue losing weight.  I can't wait to hit the 40 pound weight loss mark.

I need to get my butt back in gear and get back on track.  SERIOUSLY!  I can AND will do this!

Potty Target Review and Giveaway


So. We are potty training. I hate it. Seriously, it's the biggest up-and-down roller coaster of successes and setback, and I am tired of cleaning dirty underwear. When Max was two, we started asking if he wanted to try and sit on the potty. We started very, very slowly and after several months, he finally started having small success in peeing in the potty. When he started half days at daycare this summer, he even asked to wear underwear, and came home dry! Then I went and had another baby, and it all went to pot. (Pun intended.)

He was so traumatized by Mommy being gone for a whole week, and then coming home with a baby, that he refused to even look at a potty for over FIVE WEEKS. Then one day, he started peeing in the potty again. Yay! We still had issues with that #2 thing. Then he gets this horrible rash on his bottom that turned out to be a strep infection, and was clearly very, very painful. I'm talking screaming, crying, and fighting. So he would hold his #2s, but end up going tiny bits about 10 times a day, causing it to stay in a constant state of irritation. It was awful for all of us. The worst part was the he regressed with peeing too! He's finally clearing up, but still traumatized and holding it still. We are finally back on track with peeing though, partly due to the Potty Target.




The Potty Target is a small sticker that goes on the inside of your toilet bowl and gives your little guy (or even the Big Guy too!) something to aim for. This make Mommy happy because Max is finally willing to pee in the potty again, and I have less messes from my TWO guys. Woo-hoo!! You can pick from several styles (I LOVE the fly design! Too funny.) I went with the standard target, and Max loves to come tell me that he peed on the target. I would definitely recommend the Potty Target for moms with little boys. Or husbands.

One lucky MLG reader will win a set of Potty Targets. Just hop over to Potty Targets and tell me your favorite! (Mandatory entry)
