May - National Foster Care Month

I’ve Gone Global

Today I am discussing something serious and important to me.May is National Foster care month and we all need to support this effort.

Did you know it would take less than 1% of the U.S. population to provide a family for every child in foster care?

May is National Foster Care Month and there has never been a greater need to bring attention to children waiting for forever homes. More than 463,000 children are currently in foster care and 123,000 children are waiting to be adopted.
Children in foster care are loving children. They are children like Shaquane and Edlina and Albert. Every child deserves to have a home with caring and supportive parents.
Help us spread the message this month to reach all Americans and teach them about the love and joy that foster care adoption can bring to your life.
Visit to learn more about fostering and adopting. You can also join our online communities on Facebook and Twitter.

The National Adoption Campaign in partnership with the Children’s Bureau, AdoptUsKids, and the Ad Council raises awareness about the urgent needs of these young people and encourages citizens from every walk of life to get involved.

I know there is only so much any one person can do-that is why it takes everyone to make a difference.I myself was in foster care for 4 years.During that time I was also in a delinquent girls facility, a state group home,and on the street.Let me be the first to tell you that having a stable,safe home is so much better.It has been over 10 years and my foster sister is on my Myspace and Facebook pages to this day.We still talk and even have kids born just days apart.My point is that the love in a foster home can make the difference for even the most discouraged child.

This is a great video to help make my point

So how can you help? there are so many ways to assist and you can check them out here

It only takes a little to make a lot of difference.

Stimula Giveaway Ends 6-8

A little while ago I brought you a review of a fabulous personal product-Stimula
Now I am lucky enough to be bringing you a giveaway as well!
This givewaway is for ADULTS ONLY.If you are under the age of 18 or sensitive to personal material , you might want to click away.

As I mentioned in my review,Stimula is a personal product designed to enhance the sexual experience.Stimula is available in both mens and womens versions.
The Womens is a clitoral stimulator as well as lubricant,while the mens version helps to prolong pleasure by decreasing sensitivity.

I have tried this product and found it to be very nice.I love the silky feel when used as a lubricant,but I found you can use it for both stimulator and lube and get maximum results.

I will be giving one reader a tin with 12 packets inside.The packets each  have several uses worth of Stimula in them so this will last awhile! Woo-hoo!

Mandatory entry -visit Stimula and tell me which would be a better addition in  your life-the mens or the womens version

Port Clinton Best Western Review

A couple of weeks ago I did a review of the African Safari I went to on my mini-vacation.Today I thought I would bring you some more from that trip.

My husband and I stayed at the Best Western in Port Clinton because it was close to everything and affordable as well.Our room had a king sized bed with a whirlpool tub and 32 " flat screen television.There was also a safe and table with chairs for eating ,which was nice.

We arrived and went to the desk to check in.We had made online reservations through and were able to check in with ease.The entire process took less then 5 minutes and we were on our way to our room.

We arrived to find the room neat and clean.I am a smoker so I had a smoking room but it smelled nice,no huge smoke odor.I burn candles in hotel rooms to assist in the smell anyway, but it was a nice touch.I just had to try the whirlpool tub.

I love those things and am trying to get my darling husband to put one in my room and take out my big tub,but no luck yet.I added bubbles and had such a fun time soaking and watching t.v. while deciding on dinner.

We stayed 2 nights and didn't have any real issues.The second day we had to have our keys reset but that was no big deal and took only a few seconds to do.they lobby provides free local papers to assist in finding things to do as well as a computer with interner in the lobby for guests use.They also have a pool but it is outdoors and was closed at the time.

The only real issues I had were with breakfast.They had a waffle mix machine and waffle iron so you could have fresh made waffles.However it was a little messy and who wants to cook on vacation? There were several kinds of cereal,juice toast,bagels,muffins and fruit as well. I didn't find much to my liking so I ate light and waited until lunch for a real meal.However I am a picky person and it is complimentary so overall it was not bad.

I enjoyed my stay and would go back.Next time I am going during season and not before when half of everything is still closed!

I was not compensated for this review.The opinions are my own from personal experience.

Stimula Review

                                                  ADULT REVIEW

If you are under the age of 18 or easily offended..Please click away from this review.

For the rest of you..
I was recently given the opportunity to review Stimula.

Stimula  is a water based,stimulating personal lubricant available in both male and female versions.I received the female version to try.Sorry honey!

Fun Fact-Stimula was the Roman goddess to incite passion in women.That's my kind of goddess.

Stimula For Women is such a fun product.The packets come in a cute little tin in pink and silver.I opened it to find 12 silver packets of lubricant.The tin is solid an easy to open whille being cute as classy as well.The tin arrived in a plain package and I had no idea what was inside,so your privacy is respected and your business stays your business!

I love that this product has 2 different uses.
First and the most fun is the stimulating effect.Simply rib on the clitoral region and continue as normal.Stimula for women is desgined to help increase sexual sensitivity, and it does!

Second,you can use this as a personal lubricant too!Stimula is a water- based,water soluble,odorless gel that creates a generous amount of moisture with a small amount of product.Stimula wasn't sticky or messy and didn't leave spots or stains.

I loved this and my husband loved my reaction as well! I found that you can acheive both effects by having hubby help you and it increases the fun for you both too!.

You can also try Stimula For Men and see how the man in your life likes it as well.I know mine is asking for some!

I was not paid for this review.I was given the above mentioned product to try to assist in the review process.The opinions are my own are were not requested or  required in any way.

Aidens Birthday

My youngest son Aiden turned 7 on April 14th.Gee I feel old saying that.

Aiden is a huge Lego fan and I happened across a recipe for a lego cake at Betty Crocker .When I showed it to Aiden ,he decided he wanted it for his birthday, so I said I would give it a shot.I realized after looking that the recipe actually made 4 smaller cakes which made it even more fun.It was my first attempt at this cake and I had about a million things to do .but I think it turned out pretty cute.

I did forget to grab a new flat pan large enough to fit these on so I had to use my trusty Tupperware.Thankfully Aiden never cares about the small stuff.

He also asked for a pinata which I had a hard time finding.Everywhere I went they were either baby ones or easter/spring .I finally found one at about the 10th place I checked..Thank you Wal-Mart!

All in all it was a great day and he loved his party.
Have A Great Day
