He's Just NOT That Into You

Well, with the sniffles, fort building, and work I've been doing this week, I just haven't had time to come up with an awesome post for today. So instead, I am sharing the He's Just Not That Into You Widget with you guys.

As part of the One2One Network, I've had the great chance to preview movies and CDs, and let me just tell you THIS soundtrack is one of my favorites EVER. I love every song on it and sing along to it when driving around with the kids.

And this movie trailer? It had me laughing out loud during nap time. These guys are so hilarious, and you can see how the cast of He's Just Not That Into You clicked so well with a spark of magic that always occurs in GREAT films.

So, check out the widget that had me laughing so loud I almost woke the children from their naps, and let me know what you think! The movie comes out today in Theaters nationwide and truly is the perfect date movie for girls AND guys!

Valentine's Day Yanni Voices

I am so excited to be a part of the Yanni Voices Promotion, thanks to the wonderful people at the One2One Network!

Two years in the making, Yanni Voices showcases the talents of 4 young vocalists, Nathan Pacheco, Chloe, Ender Thomas, and Leslie Mills preforming songs of passion, love, life and blessings, truly a perfect Date Night soundtrack!

With the economy on the down side, what better way to celebrate love than by spending a beautiful, romantic evening in, surrounding by mood setting angelic voices? That is my plan for a great date night this year. I will be splurging a bit on some nice food to fix for my hubby lighting some candles, putting the kids to bed, and playing Yanni Voices.

Listening to Ender Thomas sing "Desire" makes me want to dance around the living room with my husband after a romantic dinner. And the perfect song to hear during dinner? Nathan Pacheco's "Enchantment"; his deep, smooth voice adds the perfect bit of relaxing romance to a wonderful nice in. For the end of the night? "Before The Night Ends", preformed by Leslie Mills is wonderful for that last slow dance around the living room.

On March 2, Yanni Voices preforms a PBS Special, and if you fall in love with the music and talent as much as I have, then you can also buy the CD on March 24th! The Yanni Voices Tour begins April 10.

What better way to save money and celebrate love than by inviting Yanni Voices into your home?

Nature's Source

I want to be "green"; I try really hard to recycle all I can, but honestly, it is expensive to be "green". The cloth bags cost money, the organic food costs triple the regular food, in some places (like in our apt here in Mobile) you have to pay extra for recycling, and if you want to clean naturally you can either have your house smell like vinegar or pay crazy prices for natural products.

So in this economy, where jobs aren't secure, money is tight, and everyone is a little panicked, paying extra for all those "green" things is not a priority (at least to me). Which makes me sad, because though I did find some great cleaner from 7th Generation with all natural ingredients, only their dish soap was comparable in price; everything else is just so much more expensive than what I normally buy that I just haven't even felt I had the extra funds to try it, let alone buy it all the time.

Well, I have stumbled upon a new product by SC Johnson that is affordable AND good for our Earth, our children, our pets and ourselves! And right now, fitting items into our cut back budget is a huge priority, so being able to feel safe and help the Earth with the products I purchase while saving money is GREAT.

SC Johnson have made a new line of natural cleaning products that are biodegradable, plant-based, natural and at low, family friendly prices. My experience was that I actually liked them even better than the 7th Generation cleaners I have tried out. All of Nature's Source cleaners that I tried worked VERY well, with the cleaning power you would get out of traditional cleaners, like Scrubbing Bubbles and Windex, BUT these are made out of plants-no bleach, ammonia, or other chemically made ingredients. They also smell so fresh and clean, you almost feel like you are out in a summer field; it is absolutely heavenly.

Soap scum had no chance against SC Johnson's Nature's Source bathroom cleaner, and I didn't end up with a headache after cleaning either! NICE! While I certainly don't want my kids to drink this cleaner either, I do feel better about them touching the things I use Nature's Source on because I know there is nothing that could hurt their skin or remnant fumes that could cause them a headache!

SC Johnson has been committed to helping families and the environment for over 50 years, so who better to trust our natural cleaning power to? They understand times are tight, and have priced their new Nature's Source cleaning products to reflect that. While they are more expensive than store brands, you have to remember you also aren't getting a bottle of water, you are getting fantastic, concentrated cleaning power for only a small increase. And compared with the amount of cleaner I was having to use from my store brand to clean my bathroom (and obviously it wasn't working that well, you should have seen the grime I got off with Nature's Source...)paying a bit more for the Nature's Source actually is saving me money! I only used a few squirts of Nature's Source bathroom cleaner to get my tub clean, compared to the half bottle of the store brand I would go through.

Not convinced yet to make the switch to SC Johnson's Nature Source products? Never fear, I am here to help out! Let me know in the comments below, email me at or leave a comment on my main blog page and let me know if you would like to try the toilet bowl cleaner OR the bathroom cleaner, I will be giving one away to a lucky reader! The contest ends Feb 15th, so good luck!
