I need your advice....dancing tutu's!

My little girl is in dancing this year and we LOVE finding dancing outfits. What we are looking for are tutu's!You know those really cute ones? We searched on ebay and the prices were through the roof on some of them. Do any of you happen to have great ideas on where to find tutu making instructions or patterns. I'm pretty decent with a sewing machine but I need something to go by.

Giveaway! Tracy Anderson's 30-Day Method

Here's a good giveaway! I'll be reviewing this one as soon as I get to try it out. I know I need to lose some weight and get in shape so I thought this would be a good opportunity to try out something new.
Tracy Anderson's 30-Day Method
Did you know muscles get bored, just like people do? And did you also know that there's a 9 out of 10 chance that you're working the wrong muscles when you exercise? With TRACY ANDERSON'S 30-DAY METHOD you don't have to worry--her unique workout will help you drop the weight and shrink your body in just 30 days. Based on ten years of scientific research and experience getting not just herself, but A-list stars and everyday people, red carpet ready, Anderson has developed a unique 30-day diet and workout routine that reshapes the body and defies genetics to tone the muscles and drop the pounds. While most people incorrectly target their major muscle groups, like the bicep or hamstring, the focus should be on the smaller accessory muscles that can create a long, lean, balanced look--instead of bulked up look. Anderson's program is composed of a groundbreaking three-tiered approach, including a mat workout and cardio routine targeting the all-important accessory muscles, and an exclusive 30-day meal plan, complete with dozens of delicious recipes.This comprehensive kick-start program is unlike any other workout on the market and it leaves no chance for anything but terrific, fast results!
Thanks to Anna @ Hachette I can give away 2 copies of this one!

-Winners will be subject to the one copy per household rule, which means that if they win the same title in two or more contests, they will receive only one copy of the title (or one set in the case of grouped giveaways) in the mail.

New kitten in the family! (well tommorrow...)

After a TON of thought we decided that we would like to have a second cat. You haven't seen me posting in the last few days because I've been scouring the web looking for just the right one to add to our family. This is it!

We're going to get her tommorrow! I am just so excited! You know when you just KNOW that it's the one? Well that's what happened here...we just knew.

So *happy dance* and now back to your regularly scheduled programming...

Review and Giveaway: Piggy Paints!

Thanks to Piggy Paint me and my daughter were able to check out this all natural nail polish and nail polish remover! This stuff was great! The nail polish has basically zero smell and the nail polish, while it does have a scent, is not nearly as bad as the nose-burning remover you get from the store. It lasts just as long as regular nail polish and the pink that we got to check out was really pretty!

Here are a few other things I liked about Piggy Paint:

It's hypo-allergenic and eco-friendly!

Upcoming CSN Review!

Hello Everyone! CSN contacted me to do a review and giveaway. *throws confetti* I adore everything CSN makes so of course I agreed! Before I tell you about what I'm reviewing let me tell you about their dining room tables! I checked them out and they have something for everyone...from classic styles to modern styles, you can find something that you want!

While I do love EVERYTHING I can only pick one thing to review...and I was greedy this time! LOL! Do you remember this little gal? If not you can read up how she came to be with us here. Of course she no longer looks ragged and is growing by leaps and bounds! This is the picture I took on the day that we got her.
Well, it's month later and she is fantastic and we LOVE her! We've been talking about buying a Cat Tree for her so this came at a GREAT time! I knew you would all understand if I reviewed a kitty tree for Pumpkin!Here is what she'll be getting! I can't wait to see what she does with it!

Giveaway Time:
Even though she's getting this giant 64" Cat Tree I'm still able to offer you a $20.00 Gift Certificate! YAY!
