Vote and Help Children Get Digital Books- Worldreader

Worldreader is a US and European non-profit whose mission is to make digital books available to children in the developing world, so millions of people can improve their lives. 

As of October 2012, they've put over 229,000 e-books and the life-changing, power-creating ideas contained within them into the hands of 1,000 children in sub-Saharan Africa. 

Worldreader’s mission is to provide 1 Million kids in the developing world with E-books by 2015.

200 million kids in Africa live in areas where access to books is non-existent or completely insufficient. Schools are overflowing, but classrooms and libraries are empty of printed books.

Using e-readers loaded with thousands of American, European, and African e-books, we have to date reached 3,000 kids with over 200,000 e-books, so that the life-changing ideas contained within them would transform their futures.

Those children now read more, read better, and will be their county’s doctors, peacemakers, scientists, poets, and leaders.

Vote for Worldreader between 11/27/12 and 12/4/12. It's an opportunity for Worldreader to win up to $1 MILLION and to increase 'Books for all' awareness globally like never before.

APP REVIEW- Watercolour: Basic Skills in Watercolor Painting

This book includes seven fascinating lessons in watercolour painting with interactive elements and video inserts:

1. Basic brushstrokes
2. Feather brushstroke
3. Roses and buds
4. Underpainting
5. Deciduous trees
6. Coniferous trees
7. Marine (seascape)

We enjoyed the this app a lot because it does really show you the basics of watercoloring.  I felt after watching the how to's that I actually could do it.  My daughter who is 8 watched some of the tutorials and the TREES was her favorite (mine was the roses).  She actually tried but wouldn't let me post her picture and she reads my blog so I wasn't going to get in trouble. It's not really a kid app but more for that person who really wants to try watercolor painting.  My hubby says for Christmas he is going to get me some paints so I can really TRY the app out!  I will put the iPad right next to me when I paint and see what I can do.  I highly recommend this app if you want to begin watercoloring. 

Please check out the APP HERE!  Also you can connect on FACEBOOK  and on YOUTUBE.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Week After My Hysterectomy Part 1

I think I'm doing pretty good with the recovery process!  I'm up and around and just about everything is working fine.  Maybe a little pain here and there but hey I've given birth to 3 kids and if I can handle that I definitely can deal with this!

On November 21 I went in for a hysterectomy because I needed one.  I won't go into any gory details just know I needed this surgery BAD!  Anyways, the Doctors wanted to do a laparoscopic hysterectomy but guess when they tried it was a no go so cut me open was the next option, ugh.  The recovery time is longer this way and I'm sure now I will never ever wear a bikini, LOL!  No worries I never was anyways.  Oh well however it got done- I'm alive and guess what NO MORE PERIODS for me, baby!  I love this and know it's going to change my life.

For the past year I  could hardly get out of bed for the week of my period and the PAIN...OMG really that was too much for me to handle.  I was going to get addicted to something real soon if the pain wasn't going to go away.  So this operation came at the perfect time.

Perfect timing for my health but NOT perfect timing for my family.  The day before Thanksgiving is when I go into hospital.  My hubby stepped up and made the family a great dinner plus they had neighbors show up with goodies.  I had a gross meal but hey I don't really remember it because I was on some STRONG drugs.  I didn't want the kids to see me with tubes all over me but it was the holiday week and everyone was busy.  I didn't want to be alone either.  They came up everyday and were troopers.  My son texted me all day every day!  He kept telling me I need to fart so I can come home.  Wish I never told him that.  He was awesome.  My daughter well this spooked her but she stayed strong for her mama!  Proud of that one!

I wanted to come home so bad that I did whatever it took to get the heck out of there.  They needed me to pass gas so I was up walking every hour.  I sat in the chair most of the day- did everything they asked.  The nurses smiled and laughed a lot with me so I don't think I was a difficult patient.  On the 3rd day I asked the Dr's if I could go home- they ohh'd and aww'd but I gave them that smile and told them I would be on my best behavior.  So within a hour I was released!!!  Woohoo I get to go home.

I'll write PART 2 tomorrow :)

A 3rd Grader Told Lil Mama She Was Annoying.

Little Mama came in after school and said "This girl says I'm annoying.  I've never heard that one before".  Really because I swear I've heard Lil Man tell her that on a daily basis but yes girls at school are different. I explained to her that not everyone is going to like her and it's OK!  She is at a new school this year and it's been rough for her but I do hope she opens up a bit more. Of course this hurt her feelings and pouted for about an hour. I went to a lot of schools growing up so I know how much she wants to be accepted and make friends.  She also told me the couple other girls told her that is is fine because they like her and not to worry about what the other girl said. It warmed my heart that she does have a support system there.  

I hope I dealt with that situation the way I needed to make her feel better about herself.  I grew up with low self esteem (let's be honest-still do a little) so I don't want her to doubt herself.  I want to raise a confident girl.  

How would you deal with this situation?

Win a Miche Handbag- Ends 12/15

If you are like me I LOVE PURSES!! I've always been an admirer of Miche bags because they are nice looking and in my price range!  If you want to win one please enter below- GOOD LUCK!

Miche was started by a young homemaker who spilled something on her purse and came up with the bright idea of switching purse covers when something like that happens. I wish I would have came up with this amazing idea! She pitched her idea and now has a successful business that has turned into an up-and-coming company. Anyone can have a career with Miche {Pronounced MEECHEE} by becoming a representative. Representatives can host parties and earn commissions from products they sell. My representative, Leslie, gave me the great opportunity of trying out one of these bags and seeing first-hand what this business is all about. To get an idea of how Miche handbags are different than any other bag out there, check out the image below and read Kara's full review here.


Through Monday 11/26, Miche is having a Cyber Weekend sale with some SMOKING HOT deals. I am considering purchasing a bundle. These bags typically run around $80 or more for the whole set {base, shell, accessories}, but during the Cyber Weekend sale you can get a classic or prima "bundle" with one base bag and FOUR, yes I said FOUR, shells for just $39.95-$49.95. That's basically four handbags for 40 bucks, so 10 bucks a bag. They also have shells for just $7-$10 so if you are a Miche handbag owner and looking for a cheap, cute new shell, that sale is definitely for you! SHOP NOW before this sale ends. You can also follow Purse Friends Miche bags on Facebook here.


One lucky winner will receive a Miche prima bag with the Tereasa shell {pictured above - $79.95 value}. This giveaway will end on 12/15 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time and is open to U.S. residents.

1st Step PRO-WELLNESS REVIEW~ 2 Thumps Up!


1st Step PRO-WELLNESS came into my life at the RIGHT TIME.  I've been feeling very tired all the time plus extra grumpy (ask my family)!  During the weekdays I play the mom/homemaker role so that means I wear many hats and I'm going in many different directions.  Most of the time I feel overwhelmed but that's just me thinking too much! On weekends I'm SUPER WAITRESS so my energy level is being tested all the time.  I have to say I wish I had a lifetime supply of 1st Step PRO-WELLNESS!

Why~ Because it did exactly what is said it would (see below)

  • Happy~ OMG at work nothing bothered me I kept on taking those orders and dealing with crazy co-workers with a smile on my face.  At home I didn't get irritated that much when my kids started acting up or when my hubby was playing Xbox when I needed his help doing something!  
  • Healthy~ I felt GOOD!  The last couple months getting me to feel half way human was accomplishment.  I actually felt like I'm OK!  LOL!  It gave me a boost and bounce to my walk.  
  • Energized ~ LOL!  I was like a bunny this week!  I put up curtains that I've had for almost a year, I cleaned out old clothes and toys to donate, plus I did the yearly garbage curbside pickup- got all the crap out (ok 80%).  I got stuff DONE!  It feels good to!  
I highly recommend plus give 1st Step PRO-WELLNESS 2 Thumbs UP!  

The best part of this product is the TASTE!  The energy drinks I've taken in the past are NASTY and I barely get them down.  Not 1st Step PRO-WELLNESS OMG it tastes yummy and I don't make any weird faces drinking it.  My co-worker watched me take one before my shift and later in the day she told me "Wow Pam you had a great day and smiled the whole time"  YES I DID!  Plus there was NO CRASH!  


Details: Be Happy, Be Healthy, Be Energized with Fast Acting Liquid B-­‐12 Complex.

‘B’ Happy. Women are in constant pursuit of energy to keep up with their busy lives. However, relying on soft drinks, coffee and other stimulants can take a toll on physical and mental health. 1st Step PRO-­‐WELLNESS is the nutritional brand, made specifically for women, offering a superior tasting, and natural alternative to artificial flavoring that is safe and effective to take daily. We use fruit juices -­‐ natural cherry, passion fruit, mango, and papaya -­‐ sourced directly from orchards on U.S. soil.

‘B’ Healthy. 1st Step PRO-­‐WELLNESS Liquid Vitamin B-­‐12 Complex is a healthy alternative that not only enhances energy, but also provides the wellness benefits of B-­‐12, B-­‐9 and B-­‐6 vitamins women’s bodies need to work efficiently and effectively.

Our 99% pure pharmaceutical-­‐grade B-­‐12 complex begins quickly converting food into energy to give you the daily energy you need, while helping to enhance your mental health over time. Our B-­‐12 complex uses ONLY the highest quality B-­‐vitamins for a fast-­‐absorbing liquid without artificial flavoring powders and chemicals. 1st Step PRO-­‐WELLNESS B-­‐12 Complex does not contain caffeine, niacin or artificial flavorings.

Without your full complement of B vitamins, you can wind up feeling tired and worn out.

    Countdown to Going Under the Knife~ 7 Days Left

    People have been asking right and left...Are you scared?  Ummmm HELL YEAH!  But what can I do about it- nothing but wait for the day to come.  What scares me the most is my kids though.  They have been on pins and needles for the past couple months because I've been so sick.  They have seen me in the hospital with all the tubes and then they cry (of course).  This is been stressing them so much they are having a hard time at school. My son won't stay the night at anyone's house because he is afraid to be away from me.

    I was trying to get the kids to go to friends houses while I was in surgery on Wednesday but everyone is either out of town or busy so that plan tanked!  They will have to go to hospital with me but I've decided that as soon as I'm admitted they can go home and come back when it is over!  I would love for my hubby to be there with me but not putting my kids through seeing me with tubes and all that other hospital stuff is far more important.  Wishing family was near but hey that's what I get for moving away from them!

    Also another stress is money!  What a horrible time to have surgery and be out of work for 3-4 weeks!  I've done some shopping for the holiday season and plan to make some gifts too!  I work at a cafe that doesn't have sick time or paid vacation so I'm on my own with this one.  My hubby is being so supportive and telling me not to worry about it but I'm the mom/wife and I will worry!

    I will have to remember:

    Meet My Hubby~ Ron Allen

    I met my hubby at a Luckys Grocery Store a week after I got to the Bay Area.  I sure wasn't looking for a relationship but there he was and it just seemed RIGHT!

    We started talking a lot and he had me laughing everyday- something that hadn't happen in a long time. We started dating then moved in with each other and within 2 years got pregnant with our 1st child.  Now the first 2 years was rough for both of us- I didn't trust him and he wasn't used to having an official girlfriend who he lived with so we tested boundaries and even broke up for a bit but BAM baby on board brought us back together (we still lived together- so sleeping together was still happening).  At that point we made commitment to each other that we will make it work for the sake of our family.

    We have had many ups and downs but came through each one holding hands and head high so we make a GREAT TEAM.  We got married 6 years ago (been together almost 14 yrs) and haven't looked back yet.  We plan to be together for the long haul.  Of course we have a our bad days but damn this man makes me laugh everyday and my heart loves that.

    This past year has been rough on all of us.  I was sick and didn't really know it- just chalked it up to getting older and this is what happens.  My hubby was a trooper on days I was unable to get out of bed and on days that I just bite his head off for saying "Hi"!  With my health issues this past 5 weeks he has been my ROCK!  If I ever doubted his love I don't anymore.  He even told me one day we were talking that he made vows before God and he takes those vows serious!  I got me a keeper!!!

    He is also an AIRBRUSH ARTIST~ Check out some of his work.

    WIN~ Naughty Makeover for Nice Girls Book

    Naughty is the new Nice.. That’s the mantra and message of the new “tell-all” how-to paperback, physical book from beauty maestro Dimitri James. In Naughty Makeovers for Nice Girls, James creates a new kind of finishing school–one for nice girls who always finish anywhere but first. Tired of seeing the many “nice girls” in his life constantly overlooked, James, a celebrity makeup artist, style guru and television personality, offers a lively and entertaining read full of actionable tips and tricks, showing you how to get whom and what you want. Those open the book will learn how to look classy, not trashy, trading the prim, proper uniform of “safe” clothing, makeup and hair for something sexier and more inviting, but still situation-appropriate. “You would be surprised how many women don’t know how to use clothes and makeup to market themselves in various social or professional settings,” says James. “‘Nice’ girls are invisible, and ‘trashy’ ones go over the top. ‘Naughty’ is the happy medium that pushes the envelope without crossing the line.” Thus, James challenges the traditional connotations of the word “naughty” and redefines it as a spirit that can change both image and self-perception for the better. In chapters that range from “Naughty at Work” to “Naughty First Date” to “Naughty Traveler” and “Yummy Mommy,” the author shows readers how to dress outside the box and re-vamp their beauty regimens to add sizzle to their style for all seasons and occasions. Flip open the physical book to almost any page and find a small gem of wisdom, or a stunningly clear depiction of “nice” vs. “naughty” vs. “trashy,” all sprinkled with James’ trademark wit, candor and spirit of camaraderie. Naughty Makeovers for Nice Girls is loaded with makeup and fashion advice to empower a Nice Girl to transform herself into a spicy but classy woman in every situation. So, go ahead and channel your inner naughty. Instead of fading into the background, become a star in your own life!

    Please check out my REVIEW HERE ~ One PinkMama's Reader will WIN a copy of this book!

    Both my kids really enjoyed playing different games.  Lil Mama loves dressing up in the and visiting the zoo then taking the train.  Lil Man loves playing all the games on boardwalk,  As a mom I love that Jumpstart offers educational games as well as just plain FUN games.  I've printed Madagascar worksheets for Lil Mama and she loves them.  Lil Man is going on 11 and thinks this is too baby for him but I've caught him playing a couple times so even 10 3/4 yr old kids can enjoy the world of Jumpstart and Madagascar.  They both liked the Transmorpher game. PinkMama's Place gives Jumpstart.com 2 thumbs up!
