Savage is the first book in Rose's Daughters of the Jaguar series. It tells the story of a young man who came to America to get his education after his mother passed away. While he is supposed to be working to become a doctor like his father all he really wants to do is play his guitar and enjoy the music. When he meets the family next door to his "sponsors" he quickly finds their carefree way of life enjoyable.
The story tells the story of this young man and his fight to live in a world he is not really a part of while loving the girl who lives in the world where he belongs. The dislike the worlds have for each other further increase his inner struggle as he works to learn what he should do with his life.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It was a great story with enough romance to keep me interested. Enough mystery to not let me sleep at night. And enough magic to keep me from getting too involved. I think this would make a great story for anyone who likes a little bit of magic to brighten their day.

Sullivan can be found at the Salem County Humane Society in Carneys Point, NJ along with lots of other dogs and cats that need forever homes. If you're looking for a new pet make sure you think adoption first!
The first thing I noticed about this book was the great pictures. I love the way Mike Moran illustrated the book while making the pictures bright and enjoyable to look at. The story itself is about poop. You and your child will learn all about who and what poops, different names for poop and what poop is used for.
I can see this being a great book for potty training or as a hilarious addition to your guest bathroom. This really is a fun and educational story about a topic we really can't avoid. Check out Poopendous today!

Today our therapist brought a great new toy. It's therapy putty! I was super impressed with how this simple toy kept C's attention for almost an hour and how relaxed he was while he played. So many things we have tried only work for a short while or he just doesn't seem interested.
At first I was supper worried that this was going to be a messy toy that would get all over in my carpet but I was impressed with the fact that it doesn't stick to things. The boys had lots of fun making it flat and then rolling beads up inside to hide so they could find them. They played with it much like play dough but it was much cleaner AND it did help C relax. The putty we used was a medium resistance but they make it in a variety of different thicknesses. I can't wait to get some of this for the boys! It will be a perfect sensory activity for on the go because it will easily fit in my diaper bag. If your child has trouble sitting still or other sensory seeking problems I highly suggest you try some!

As you consider adding a family member to your home this year make sure you check out your local shelters and humane societies. They have awesome friends just waiting for a home like yours!
This third book is about two family friends, Lady Philippa and Lord Ambrose. Although they seem like polar opposites they are pushed together when Lady Philippa's impulsive decision puts here in a very risky situation and threatens the family's reputation. She is rescued by Lord Ambrose, England's most notorious scoundrel, and together they must fight to defend her reputation.
I have to say that I fell in love with Lord Ambrose. He is any girl's hero as he defends Lady Philippa and yet won't let her help him at all. There were times that I just wanted to reach through the page and smack him because he just didn't see why Lady Philippa could care about him when in truth he was a great gentleman. You will love this book and I think it is a great addition to any collection!
Jasper, the Earl of Saxton, has made a deal with his devil father and has one month left to marry. Instead of looking at all the acceptable young ladies he joins a fighting club in the unacceptable part of town. This is where he meets an orphaned seamstress, Olivia. Although all Olivia wants is a respectable life, Jasper is out to win her as his mistress. After much deceiving the pieces fall together and Olivia might just be acceptable as more than a mistress but first Jasper must make sure that her history is properly hidden. Will Jasper take the risk and go against his father's wishes or will he loose the one woman he is trying to win?
This is another incredible story about a true gentleman who has yet to discover his real self. I loved following Jasper and Olivia as they worked to discover the meaning in their lives and then fought to keep what they held most precious. You'll love this story of trial and triumph!
Recently Darcy Burke sent me three books to review and I loved every minute of them! Her Wicked Ways was a great way to start this series. It tells the story of a young girl, Lady Miranda, who is banished from London for her reckless behavior. On the way to stay in her uncles house in the country her traveling party robbed. Because Miranda was forced to leave her jewels behind she offers the handsome thief a kiss instead. Upon arriving at her uncles humble home, Miranda is encouraged to work at a local orphanage where she meets the handsome owner, "Fox", who tempts her passion in wicked ways.
This book was one that I thoroughly enjoyed! I do have to mention that this is an adult novel. Having said that, I highly encourage you to read it! I absolutely fell in love with Fox, a true country gentleman, and couldn't help but root for him to gain Miranda's favor. The ending is completely unpredictable as Miranda's brother, Jasper, steps in to "help". You won't want to miss Her Wicked Ways !

I was super excited when I found out that EdenFantasys is having a sale for 20% off everything and anything on their site using code PLAY20. Apparently I'm not the only one who needs a vacation from vacation. This and the free gift with any order will help my dollar go a lot further.
Besides fun things for us as a couple I also have a few things for me on my wish list. I am simply addicted to their Milk Made Smoothing White Sugar Scrub and my jar is just about gone. They also have a large selection of lotions, including stretch mark cream, that I want to try before this baby gets here. Speaking of which, I know EdenFantasys has super fast shipping, but I better go get this order in before the baby decides to get here faster than the mail. Happy shopping!
The Nutrition Label to the right is from my favorite flavor of OXYwater, Passion Berry. It's great chilled but also wonderful for just about any moment when I just can't take any more water. There are six flavors of OXYwater total and I like all but one (which happens to be E's favorite).
I will be super sad when our stash of OXYwater is gone because there is no place for me to buy it locally yet (PLEASE fix that soon OXYwater). If you live in the South Eastern states there is a good chance you'll be able to find OXYwater at a location near you. If not, you can order OXYwater directly from their website.
I'm super excited to be able to give you the chance to win some OXYwater to try. To enter please use the form below and make sure to thank OXYwater for this great opportunity!

Gordon, now a globe-trotting consultant with a grown child, was not so very long ago an aspiring writer with a draft looking him in the face. Glenna was a sharp med student that he couldn't dream of living without. As Gordon travels to find Glenna again he must revisit the past and discover why he truly drove her away if he hopes to rediscover the passion they once shared. As he travels along this journey of reliving his live in the 1960s to find the true reason for his return you can't help but share every moment of this story with him.
Although this is not a time frame I usually read about I did enjoy taking this journey with Gordon. My favorite aspect of this book was the wide range of emotions of the characters as they traveled. It was always interesting to see how they would react to a given situation and what that reaction would then lead them too. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would encourage any adult to read it.

These diapers are super simple to use. You have a shell and an insert and you simply lay the insert inside the shell and put it on. My favorite part about these diapers is their extra large inserts. I have to fold them for my 2 year old but that means I can put the extra right where I need it most. These inserts do not fit in my pocket diapers but that is ok by me.
The shell of this diaper is fully reversible which makes it kinda fun. These covers are also one size. Adjusting them takes a little more work than some because you actually adjust it with elastic inside the cover but they also get a more secure fit than one size snap covers.
Last but not least I will tell you that I love all the bright colors these diaper sets come in! There are so many combos to choose from you'll have a hard time picking just one.
