Day after day we go through the motions.

Day #1: We get up, get dressed, make breakfast, go to work or get the kids to school, come home, make dinner, do homework with kids, clean up dinner, etc. By the end of the evening, we are so tired that all we want to do is crash. So we go to bed.

Day #2: We get up, get dressed, make breakfast, go to work or get the kids to school, come home, make dinner, do homework with kids, clean up dinner, etc. By the end of the evening, we are so tired that all we want to do is crash. So we go to bed.

Our routine becomes engrained in us so much that if anything disrupts our routine, it can throw us completely off.

But what if every hour of every day was like a disrupted moment in our routine?
What if every minute of every day was spent trying to appreciate the peace you feel now, praying you still feel the same a minute later?Not knowing if in one minute you were going to have a panic attack, or feel manic, or severely depressed, suicidal, want to cut yourself, feel totally and hopelessly alone for no reason in a room full of people?

Have you ever felt that way? Do you feel like that now? Are you aware that the people around you might look "normal" on the outside, but they having an internal conflict like nothing you have ever experienced?

I'm here to tell you that mental illness is like the interruption in our engrained routine every minute of every day. Depending on what type of mental illness you have, you literally can be counting the minutes until your next interruption.

For a limited time, Pink Dog Bakery is mailing out free samples of their Gourmet Cupcakes. This trial pack of 2 cupcakes lets your pup indulge in luxurious cupcakes just for dogs! Click the cupcake to get yours here!

Gourmet Cupcakes - Strawberry Yogurt

Frosting is naturally colored with strawberries.
Ingredients - Cupcake: Whole wheat flour, oat flour, vegetable oil, honey, organic strawberries, eggs, margarine, vanilla, baking powder, vitamin C. Icing: Cream cheese, fat-free probiotic yogurt, organic strawberries,
canola oil, honey, salt.
Guaranteed Analysis: Crude Protein (min.) 6.50%, Crude Fat (min.) 15.00%, Crude Fiber (max.) 8.00%, Moisture (max.) 18.00%.

These cupcakes combine the delicious sweetness of strawberries with the smooth healthfulness of yogurt. Many people don't know that unsweetened fat-free probiotic yogurt is extremely healthy for dogs, primarily because of the active live cultures but also because yogurt is an excellent source of calcium and protein. Our panel of doggy taste testers gobble these cupcakes up for the taste, but pet owners will love these cupcakes for their health benefits.

Krista Brewer's Jewelry Candles Review & Giveaway

Please click the above video for complete details on how to enter!

I was recently selected to do a review of Hartstrings Children's Clothing. Tiffany loves to get dressed up and look pretty so I thought this would be a wonderful opportunity for her to model some great fashions while I got to review a brand that I have heard wonderful things about. 

Hartstrings was founded in 1979 by Ms. Peggy Hart Earle and represents an upscale girls’
 lifestyle brand that embodies the essence of classic American styling with a modern view. 

After reviewing the website, www.hartstrings.com which was super easy to navigate, I set out to chose clothing for Tiffany. The first thing I noticed was that Hartstrings answers any question you may have as far as sizing right on their website. I can't tell you how important this is to me. No one likes to wait for the mail, get all excited, open the package and realize you bought the wrong size.

Some of the items are pricey but you can get incredible deals!
We were awarded $75.00 in merchandise credit to use 
towards any item or items we wanted. 

I chose to be my usual thrifty self and look through the sale items 
to get the most for the credit given to us. 

The first item we chose was the Hooded Cable Tunic Sweater in herbal green. 
This item retails for $60.00, but was on sale for $15.00!!
The Girls Green Hooded Cardigan Tunic Sweater Features:
 Cables on the Bodice and Functional Front Pockets
It is Imported, Machine Washable, & is100% Cotton
The hood is super cute and just adorable!

The next item we chose was the Fashionable Handbag Knit Top in Pearl.
Again, a fabulous deal! The top retails for $34.00 and was on sale for $20.40!
This Girls Pearl White Long Sleeve T-Shirt Features 
an Applique Pink and Green Tile Print Applique 
Pursewith Attached Grosgrain Ribbon Bows


The final item we chose was the Favorite Knit Legging in Camellia Rose.
The Girls Essential Stretch Cotton Pull On Legging
 is Imported, Machine Washable, and made of 95% Cotton/5% Spandex.
Now all of you Mom Said fans know what's coming next....
Show me the deal!!! Ready?
Regularly $30.00, these leggings are now available for $12.00!!!

Shipping was very quick and the customer service was excellent. When I opened the package, I noticed that there was an extra shirt in the package. I contacted Hartstrings and was told it was just a little something extra they threw in for us. How cool is that!
