My Birthday Wish!

Who can resist this sweet little face?  For my 10th birthday I got a dog so I figured since I am turning 40 this week it is time to get another dog.  She is so cute and cuddly.  She is a Morkie, which is a cross between a Maltese and a Yorkie.  Now all I have to do is convince my husband this little puppy would be a great addition to our family!

Apple Bottom Clothing Giveaway

It is hard to believe that it will soon be time to start thinking about shopping for clothes for school.  My son who is know 11 has begun to take an interest in the clothes he is wearing and just anything Mom picks out won't do.  Oh the fun begins.

Recently I had the opportunity to review this Puma outfit thanks to the Parigi Fashion Group and Mom Select.   My son loved the outfit and the shorts have become his shorts of choice.  I have to remind him that they do need washing every now and again.  I love that they are comfortable on him and look great as well.

Mom Select knows that it can be very  hard for a busy mom to keep the family dressed in the latest fashions. We  moms want our children to look clean and presentable and our children just want to wear what is cool. We don't always have the time to go out there and find brands that meet both our standards and our children's ever changing standards. Don't worry! Mom Select has found a fashion group that represents many great brands that will make the whole family happy.

 For nearly a quarter of a century, Parigi Group's stable of brands has played a major role and are some of the main contributors in helping to shape and define the children's fashion apparel market. They represent brands such as PUMA, Apple Bottoms, Akademiks, and LRG.

Giveaway: Mom Select has also given me the opportunity to giveaway this cute 3 piece pink hoodie outfit from Apple Bottoms.  It is size3-6 months. To enter visit one of the sites mentioned above and tell me an outfit you would love to have for your child.

Sarah McLachlan- Laws of Illusion

I have always seem to find my music tastes leaning toward female vocals and Sarah McLachlan is one of the female artists that I always enjoy listening to.  After 7 years Sarah has a new Album out called Laws of Illusion.  If you are a fan of Sarah McLahlan you will want to check this album out.  I feel it is some of her best work. The album’s first single “Loving You is Easy,” is a Top Ten hit at Adult Alternative radio and is available for sale at all digital providers. It also happens to be one of my favorites on the album.

True to her Canadian roots, the album was recorded in Montreal and Vancouver with Sarah’s longtime collaborator/producer Pierre Marchand. Sarah’s new album Laws of Illusion was released last month  just weeks in advance of the kick off to Lilith Fair 2010, the historic all women touring festival, founded by McLachlan .
