What's a big and beautiful woman to do?

Ok here is a shout out to all plus sized clothing manufacturers!!!

If you sell Plus Size Clothing, PUT PLUS SIZED MODELS IN THE PLUS SIZED ADS! IF YOU SELL A 52 H BRA, DON'T TRY TO SELL ME IT WITH A PICTURE OF AN A OR B CUP MODEL!! Just saying :) You'd sell a lot more clothing!

This discussion came about after I posted on my facebook page, www.facebook.com/momsaidthatsit,
requesting information from fans on great places to buy plus sized women's clothing.

There were some great discussions and wonderful suggestions such as:



They go up to size 44W!

Another one is:


The general consensus is still the same however; Plus size women want to see plus size women in the manufacturer's ads!
So here's a wake-up call to plus sized manufacturers if you're listening.

Let's talk menopause.

Menopause is a process and not a disease. All women go through this transition period normally during early forties and late fifties. It's the period in a woman's life when her ovaries stop producing eggs and that results in cessation of menstrual cycle.

The menopause cycle can be divided into three stages- Peri menopause, Menopause and Post menopause.

 BrytonPick - FLOSS In Seconds


I recently received a free BRYTON PICK FLOSS IN SECONDS to use and review. I have to be honest, I do not floss regularly. It is such a pain. I am always running in 20 different directions and I lose everything!

I never remember where I put the dental floss,
I don't like the waxy feel of it, the strings come apart, it is not reusable,
 and it's just gross to me.
Until now!

The Bryton Pick is so easy to use! It is flat and great to store in your wallet, which is where I keep mine. No fuss, no mess, no losing it. I am in my wallet all the time so I never forget to use it. It is great at removing plaque build-up.

This is a definate must have for your teeth and it works on braces! Try using ordinary floss on braces!
It comes in different colors and what girl doesn't like color options?
Give it a try. You'll be sold on Bryton Pick too!

GO VISIT KLIPPIN KRAZY! AND ENTER TO WIN THE 1,000 FAN APPRECIATION FULLY LOADED COUPON BINDER GIVEAWAY!

This is a fantastic blog full of useful
 information to help you on your couponing journey!


So this evening I went with coupons in hand to Giant Food Store. It was my first real attempt at couponing.

I learned some lessons within 5 minutes of walking in the store.
  • Lesson #1: I tried to coupon and regular grocery shop at the same time. Not a good idea. Sent my daughter, Felyshia, out to get another cart so we could separate the coupon deals in one cart and full priced items in another cart. This was easier for me because I wanted to do a separate order and see how much I really saved. Which brings me to:

  • Lesson #2: Plan separate trips to the store. One for large coupon shopping and one for full priced items.

So I was off. Felyshia pushing one cart and me pushing the other. I was a mess! I went from one side of the store to the other, and back again, then again, and again.

  • Lesson #3: Pre-Sort all of your coupons from one side of the store to the next in order so you don't drive yourself crazy. Which ties into:

  • Lesson #4: Get yourself a binder and baseball card sheets and ORGANIZE YOUR COUPONS!! I was a mad woman lol.
When we finally got to the register, I was exhausted! It took me almost two hours for not very many items.

  • Lesson #5: Pre-print a copy of the stores you shop at's coupon policy and have it ready on hand to argue with the cashiers. I'm sure I could have won some arguements and got more off if I only had a copy of the store's policy. I was just too tired.

  • Lesson #6: Don't buy things you don't need just to use a coupon.
Well that's it for tonights shopping experience. I'll keep you updates :)

My beautiful mom on her wedding day.


I grew up in a townhouse community with my Mom, older brother,older sister, me, and my little sister.



I knew when my dad walked out on my mom when I was 5 years old that we were what was considered "poor", but my mom never let us know it.


At 36 years old my Mom found herself a divorced, single mother of 4, trying to make ends meet. The phrase robbing Peter to pay Paul was used a lot, but never really made any sense to me. We always had food in the refrigerator and clothes on our backs. I heard her talk about being three months behind on the mortgage and electric a lot but she never let on that we were in any danger of losing anything.


My mother used to work 2 & 3 jobs at a time to support all of us. She would work 18 hours a day and come home and just literally collapse.

One of her jobs was waitressing. A perk to working for the restaurant was that she was allowed to eat one meal a night on the house. I would always ask her to bring me home a California Cheeseburger with mayo and french fries That was my favorite. I felt so happy when she would bring them home for me. What I didn't know at the time was that her bringing it home for me she was giving away her chance of actually having a half decent meal for the day. This is how she was able to help feed us.  She loved me that much! I'm so sorry mom. I didn't know.


Last year I was driving my children through town and they wanted a "dollar" burger from McDonalds. I only had $5.00 left to my name to feed all 4 of us on so each of the children got a dollar burger and I bought them a large fry to share. They asked wasn't I hungry and said that I needed to eat too. I insisted to them that I wasn't hungry, knowing I was lying to them because I was starving and could have eaten all 4 burgers and the fry myself but didn't want them to know because it was more important to me that they ate.

All of the sudden I had a flash back of my childhood. We would beg and beg my mom to take us to McDonalds. The only thing she ever got was a small soda. She always said she wasn't hungry. It hit me. Oh my God, my mom was lying to us all those years. She was hungry and was only saying she wasn't so she would have enough to feed us! I started bawling and called my mom on the telephone. I asked her if this was what she had been doing all those years ago and she confirmed it.


All of those times she would stop at the diner after church and let us get what we wanted but she would only order a soda and two sides of vegetables for herself. A million other instances now flood my mind.


I later learned the reason that we were always behind in mortgage and electric was because our Christmas' were so wonderful and filled with presents, that it would take her 3 months to catch up on the bills from what she spent at Christmas on us children.



You can't imagine how many hours she would spend wrapping our gifts! She would wrap every single present like it was the best present in the world. Each one was neatly wrapped with curling ribbon and bows and shiny paper and gift tags. But looking back now, I realize it has nothing at all to do with what was in those boxes. It was the love. The fact that she gave absolutely every bit of herself into affording each one of them. It was the love that she showed by carefully wrapping each one of them. It was the love in never letting us know we were poor. It was the love that God blessed her with that she poured out to us each and every day and still does.

It is only now, that I am a mom of three beautiful children myself that I am able to look back and learn lessons from my mother that she never kenw she was teaching me. What I learn the older I get is just how absolutely, incredibly AMAZING my mother was and still is, and that she was and still is the rock of our family. She's absolutely the most loving person I know.

I can't put into words what I have put my mother through in the last 35 years. I have probably been a complete disappointment as a daughter. But my mom never treats me like I am. A mother's love is unconditional. I know that because of my own three beautiful children that God has blessed me with. When I work 6 days a week to support my family, It's because of the love that she taught me. When I am so tired all I want to do is cry but I keep going, it's because of the strength God gave me through the strength shown to me by my mom. When all I want to do is throw in the towel and run away from life's problems and everyone around me, I don't ...because of the love that she has taught me. The strength that I find in her. The neverending, neverdying, unmerited love that she has shown me. She is strength, she is wisdom, she is beauty, she is hope, she is blessing, she is honor, she is a lady. She is a woman of power. She loves her children like God loves His children. She is my MOM!!!


I love you so much Mom!! Thank you for always putting us first. Thank you for caring when no one else did. Thank you for never abandoning us children when it would have been so easy to do so. Thank you for working 18 hours a day for 15 years straight to support all of us. Thank you for selflessly giving and giving and giving. You are the most beautiful woman and person I know on this earth. I adore you and if I can be half the woman that you are, I would be so happy.


My beautiful mommy today!

    I have to admit. When I first thought of reviewing a silk-screen print tshirt, I had flashbacks of the ones from my youth. You know, the ones that after one wash start to peel? You would sit in class all day ignoring the teacher and seeing how much of the silk-screen design you could pick off by the end of class. After that it was a fight every time you washed it and put it in the dryer.
    You go to get the clothes out of the dryer and you just know your tshirt design is folded over in the middle and you are going to have to fight to peel it apart. Once you finally get it apart you have that crease in your shirt all day long.
    Well I am so happy to say my faith in Tshirt companies has been restored by http://www.tshirtprinting.net/personalised-t-shirts!!!!
    As you can see below after 3 washes my TshirtPrinting.net Monkey silk-screen tshirt is as bright and beautiful as ever!!

    I have to admit it. I LOVE to take pictures. I want to capture every moment so I can go back and re-live it all over again. My family however, does not share my enthusiasm.



    The youth at my church, this is what I get when I ask to take their picture.

     My daughter was in her first "big" production this year for the American Music Theatre Christmas show. I was so excited I was going to be a stage mom! I spent every single moment trying to capture it on film so she would be able to have the memories for her children.



    Last Easter trying to take family pictures, my niece and my mother turn their heads away.

    My daughter gives me an egg in the face this Easter.

    I spent the entire day and part of the night trying to get others to let me take their picture. Hiding behind furniture, bushes, whatever it took to get the perfect shot.

    Whenever I try to take their pictures I either get a hand in front of the face or a turn of the head. I don't get it. Why don't they want me to capture their face for my scrapbooks. They are so unsupportive.

    Finally, a light bulb came on for me this week. I have been spending so much time trying to capture the moments, that I am actually missing out on the moments in my life. No more. From now on, I plan to savor the moment at hand and not try to capture it for the future.

    Wow. What a revelation!!
