Happy Halloween from The Mommy Island

I let our little guy enjoy some of his Halloween candy, and he had to pick out the blue ringpop. I'm a smart mom as you can see I took off his white shirt before letting him chow down! This was his first time ever eating a ringpop, and he LOVED it! We wish you a fun night with your family and friends!~Becky

Safeskin-Review and Giveaway



We were happy to have the opportunity to review Safeskin Kids-First Aid Antibacterial Gel. Since the Booper is a two year old, and seems to have lots of little ouchies that need attention this worked well for us.

 I don't know about you, but most of the time before trying a new product on my son, I test it first on my own skin.

Candles Set the Mood.

With the holiday season quickly approaching many families start preparing for guests. I know when I'm prepping my home for company I like to look around and try to see my home through my guests eyes. I also walk through my home and take in a deep breath, what do I smell? I love lighting some of my scented candles before company arrives, to help make sure our home smells invitingly sweet.

Having a celebration or fun event, I like to plan ahead to the mood I want my guests to feel. Perhaps you are having a fun Halloween party, you might want to decorate your cupcakes with some spooktacular ghosts and bat candles from CraftedCandles.com for a fun fanciful feel. Planning a large dinner party for Thanksgiving? Try using some simple tapered candles to lend an air of elegance to your meal. Having a few girl friends over for coffee? Try a simple jar candle of your favorite scent!

If you're like me, then you don't need a special occasion to light a candle they are a mainstay in your home. I love having candles for emergency lighting, making our home smell sweet, on the table with our meal, a birthday cake, or simply to make myself feel pampered!

For every holiday, birthday, wedding, or special event CraftedCandles.com has just the right candle to
 set the mood. I love their large selection of unique floating candles.~Becky

Busy Bodies!

Never turn your back on a toddler! They are sneaky, devious, crafty, outrageous, little busy bodies!

 This is a picture of our bathroom sink after the Booper had his fun wasting a brand new tube of toothpaste. He had "painted" our sink and all the areas he could reach with his step stool (which was how he got to the toothpaste to begin with). He used the toothpaste and "painted" the back side of the bathroom door as well. This took me several wipes just to get the top layer, then I used a hot wet rag to get the rest cleaned up. His hands face and hair were covered and he had some toothpaste on his shirt too.

 I don't always take pictures of his "Artwork" but I had to catch a shot of this because I was laughing a little about it. The fact that it wasn't on the carpet or on anything that couldn't be cleaned helped me keep my humor about it.

What is the most devious thing your toddler has done?
 Were you able to laugh about it or did it make you sit down and cry? 
(which I admit some of the Booper's messes have made me do)
Leave me a comment, sometimes sharing our stories helps us laugh it off!

Mom's Friday Night Movie!



As a mom I don't always get time just for me. Watching an adult movie can sometimes be frustrating if we start it while the Booper is awake we have to pause, and restart multiple times. If there is any adult content we have to make sure he is in bed or busy in another room. One night I was dying to just relax and enjoy a movie. My husband not being much of a movie enthusiast, offered to keep the Booper entertained so I could enjoy watching a movie in our downstairs. I took him up on the offer!

CRASHERS Book Tour-My Review


"A riveting story of love and desperation, greed and redemption."
Crashers by Lindy S Hudis
Following the characters Nathan and Shari, you are pulled into their love story of bright hopes for a great future together. As the story unfolds a series of events lead this young couple to desperation as their lives seem to be falling apart and their future not looking as bright as it once did. They happen upon a darker character Bryce who only portrays the shiny wealth of his darker side, and the young couple are pulled into his under world of greed, fraud and danger. When money is on short supply Nathan and Shari start to point the finger of blame at each other. Out of desperation to save their relationship and the life they've dreamed of, they take to the streets as Bryce's newest recruits.  My sympathies were with the couple until somewhere in the story I began to care more about the dark character Bryce. Bryce's background story compels you to want him to find an escape from his fraud ring bosses.

 I found myself loathing the character Shari, and hoping she would be caught. Her attitude that the universe owed her a better future simply because she wanted it, didn't appeal to me. Karma and bad luck seem to get the blame for all Nathan and Shari's troubles when poor choices are never considered a factor in Shari's mind.

Mission: Revenge of the Vegetarian





Love to read? This week's mission is sponsored by author Jim Tilberry.As always this mission is about sharing enter to win a prize for you, and one for a friend. Make sure to enter to win the great prizes, and have a look at his site!

About Our Sponsor



Written by a passionate vegetarian, Jim Tilberry, "Revenge of the Vegetarian" is an amusing, irreverent, and often hilarious book that covers a range of topics about vegetarianism and the meat-eating culture. The author has his tongue firmly planted in cheek, while taking humorous jabs at a variety of easy targets. Get a silly lesson on how to deal with meat eaters in social situations. "Revenge" pokes fun at vegetarians, vegans, liberals and conservatives. But it pokes the most fun at meat eaters. This short entertaining book is ideal for any vegetarian or vegetarian wannabe with a sense of humor. Some adult language. Not appropriate for children.

Jim Tilberry is a thin vegetarian living in Chicago, the city of big shoulders and even bigger waistlines. He has lived a meatless life since 1998 when he was visited by a pig in a dream asking him to give up bacon, ham and all other meat. Knowing that pigs are very intelligent he never questioned the request.

Read a great review of the book by Pittsburgh Frugal Mom.

Parnevu~My Review

When I was given the opportunity to try out some hair care products from Parnevu, I couldn't wait to see if they would work on my hair. I have extremely dry, wavy, stubborn hair. I'm usually skeptical when it comes to trying new hair products, because I've had bad experiences with products making my hair greasy or causing my hair more harm than good.

 I was hopeful though with Parnevu. Thinking that trying a product with T-Tree oil might be the answer to my search for soft and manageable hair. 

The first product I chose for review was the T-Tree Shampoo. Boasting that it would prevent flaking, and help lock in moisture. I couldn't wait to put it to the test. With the weather changing our house is always dry this time of year, and my scalp seems to dry out too. I suffer from an itchy, flaking, embarrassing scalp. The first thing I noticed was the consistency of this shampoo was different from anything I've tried before. The only word I can think of to describe it is, sticky. It lathered up nicely and seemed to leave my hair raw. I honestly didn't feel much difference with my scalp during the washing. When my hair was dry and fixed. I waited. Normally later in the day is when I really notice my scalp feeling dry and itchy. I never had that feeling after using Parnevu's Therapeutic T-Tree Shampoo. I used it for a few days, then switched back to my old shampoo just to check if it was the shampoo causing the change. Sure enough, my scalp was dry and I was scratching by that evening. The shampoo really helps with the dryness and itching. I can't say that it got rid of 100% of the flakiness, but using this shampoo over time might solve that for me.

The Mommy Island Supporting a Good Cause!

I've had a very busy weekend. As you all probably know I'm the mom to a very busy little guy we call the Booper, I love scrapbooking and reviewing great products, but here's something you might not know. I'm a fund raising manager to a local private school, The Education Center Inc. I love volunteering at the school on lots of different levels, but setting up and helping with raising funds is where I can be most effective. The school has applied for nonprofit status, but we are still in the waiting process. Praying the process will move a bit faster! In the mean time we have to raise funds to cover the budget gaps tuition doesn't meet.

Love This? Share It!
