I feel so powerful!

my hubs and i have talked about trying to have our own garden for years now.But something always happened and any extra time we had went to something else. This year we (he)got really serious and put in the extra time and tadaaaa- we acutally have a garden! Its kind of exciting,plus the kids are into it too. we have planted everything from strawberries to corn.This being our first time growning anything except kids and flowers (and i kill them. the flowers i mean.)we didnt really know what to buy, where to buy it. We were pretty ignorant. So i decided to get a cucumber plant to add to our garden. We love cucumbers, who doesnt right? corn , cucumber and tomatoes is the best summer meal EVAH. I was so excited to see the rate my cucumbers were coming along. Can you imagine my shock when i went one day and picked this??
I feel so powerful!Kind of like tom hanks in the movie "castaway", when he makes fire.. The pic doesnt show the size really of this thing. i have called it "gigantor". Possibly the biggest cucumber that has ever been. its almost 12 inches long!Well of course i had to brag to my family and freinds, right? So it was upsetting when i showed my mom and she told me it was a zucchini. crap.

My latest obsession...

Yes, i have an obsession... what? like you dont have one? i think we all do.. some of us just have weird anyway, i have been introduced to a candy that has been around for hundreds of years. Not literally. Its just an older candy. And it does my heart good.... love it.
I should really say re-introduced, because i have always known of this candy, but it wasnt until recently that my obsession began. I can thank my little buddy Kaylee for this. While visiting her grandma (actually buying yard sale clothes, one of my other fav things) kaylee shared her Bit o honey with me.. that was all it took. i was done for. So now i am having a love affair with my new fav candy. Its cheap, and it says its low in fat on the package, so i am gonna say its a "healthy snack" ( sarcasm), and it keeps me company on my friday midnights that i work. What else could a girl want????
By the way, check out a site called thredup, its where you can swap clothes with other moms! super cool. i have some items listed, so i will be sure to let you know how it goes!

I am so ashamed.....

i have been such a horrible blogger, i havent given any attention to my tiny blog in a long time. I guess i let kids , house, business and general life take up all my time. shame on me, i get it. well i am gonna try to do better.forgive me? i hope so.
I have a neighbor that lives down the road from me, and they have a couple of dogs. One in paticular really cracks me up. truly. My kids love this dog, especially my 4 year old , laken. I dont know what this dogs name is, but my laken has given this dog a name....

Laken has named this dog "piggy". She thinks it is a guinea pig... not a dog. simply hillarious

New Makeup does a heart gooooooood

Who doesnt love going to the store and getting new makeup? I do,its fun! But of course there is the bad makeup scenario... you know, you go down the tons of isles of makeup, where all of the companies make it seem like they have the best product out there.So you pick a color of lipstick, knowing that it will look great. And then you get it home, open it up,and put it on. YUCK. Its not the color you thought it would be, its not the consistency you thought it would be,its not anything like you thought it would be.That is when buying makeup isnt fun.This has happened to me alot in my makeup wearing years.So , i was really excited when the cover girl companie was allowing bizz agents to try some of their new products.....

Covergirl NaturaLuxe..very fancy.
I love it!! The foundation is really smooth and doesnt feel heavy on your face and the lip gloss is very light and not greasy. Its ALL NATURAL!!
Hooray for this!!!! I highly recommend trying Covergirl NaturaLuxe!!!!

Get out there and buy some makeup!!

allergies are stinky- want a claritin coupon?

happy day to my friends! it is crazy windy and sunny here in southern ohio, but its nice to have a break from the rain. I am a BZZagent, didnt know if i told you folks this bit of info. Its really fun, you get to review items and try things, i really enjoy it! Soooo, that being said.... who here loves allergies?? anyone???? ok, here is what is even worse, when your little one has allergies. That is just super, right? My olivia has allergies(of course) and we are always trying new meds to help.I was given the oppurtunity to review Claritin for children and i must say, it rocks! And to beat all, it doesnt taste bad!!!! What? so its a double win for me, i dont have to tie her down to swallow it, she does it willingly. Its grape flavor, and she is totally ok with it. It has helped her itchy eyes and the incredible amount of drainege she experiences ALLLLL the time. thanks claritin!!!

I hope your all doing well with your allergies, if you are looking for something over the counter, safe and well known for your little one, head to the nearest walmart, or pharmacy and check out claritin for children!
I have some coupons for $3.00 off their next purchase of childrens claritin, first come, first serve! contact me with your address and i will send it to you!
lets remember those who have been devastated by the horrific tornadoes and bad weather this week, some have lost homes, memorobilia that cant be replaced and others have lost lives.
Have a great and wonderful day, be sweet!

Wall stickers= total cuteness!

Happy Sunday evening to you all! Been super busy getting Diva Baby orders filled and completing new projects that my crazy brain comes up with! 3 of the 4 are asleep, and i wanted to take a minute to visit with you. A while back i posted that my little one had taken my memory card from the camera( how and why do they do such things?) well, much to my delight, it has been located! hooray for this!
I had made a trip to a ALMIGHTY DOLLAR TREE an hour away, its super huge and always has fun stuff that mine doesnt have. I am bitter about that. Anyway, i found some cute stuff....

I found some cute organizer bins, at least that is their purpose for me and these super awesome wall stickers!! I couldnt wait to get started on these babies! ONlY 1.00. Super easy to put on, super easy to take off.(lets hope the kiddos dont figure that out)Here is where i decided to put them..
I realize i didnt take a good pic, you have no idea where i put them, the picture doesnt show... ugh. i put them on the wall beside her bed, looks like flowers are growing out of her bed. i dont know if i will ever get the whole photo part of blogging down.

Laken was really excited when she saw them, that my friend is worth much more than 1.00.I just need to get some for the boys room now!

Check out my etsy shop, or shop around on my facebook page, many cute things popping up here at Diva Babies!
Have a great week friends!
