Kosher Casual: A Fashion Giveaway!

I believe that modesty is a beautiful thing. I'm always looking for new stores that carry modest yet fashionable clothing, and Kosher Casual is the newest I've found.  Their clothing is made in Israel (the country I'm the fondest of besides my own) and the quality of their items is so incredible!  I chose to review the Double Layer Skirt in purple.  The same skirt also comes in navy, black and gray.  

I'm wearing a medium in the pic below but I actually wish I had chosen a small.  My waist is tinier than it's been in ages (I wear a size 5, just like in high school--thank you, Nutrisystem and workouts!) and the skirt is longer than I thought it would be.  Still, it fits me nicely when I pull it up a bit and the material is so soft! I wish you could feel it.  I love it!  This is my new favorite skirt.  The material flows and the skirt can easily be worn as an everyday skirt or for dressing up.  So pretty and so, so comfortable!   This is one of, if not the, most well-made item hanging in my closet.

Trash Pack: The Perfect Easter Basket Stuffer for Your Little Guy! #Giveaway

My little guy loves his new toys from The Trash Pack!  And now there's an Easter series!  He is eagerly hoping to get some in his Easter basket. Little does he know, it will be filled with them. He never ceases to get excited about these guys!   The Trash Pack is known as ‘the gross gang from the garbage’. The line includes over 300 collectible characters, each named and designed after the things you’d find in the trash (like Trash-a-Pillar and Rankenstein).  There are also Trash Wheels, vehicles for the trashies, and some playsets that look really cool.  They are the perfect affordability and perfect size for Easter basket stuffers!

My little guy thinks The Trash Pack gang is so awesome!  He had a grand old time looking at the back of the box to find out the names of his guys and to see which ones he wants to try and get next.  His favorite so far is the one he's pointing to--Rockroach, a cockroach with an electric guitar.  All the trashies come inside their own trash can and you don't know which ones you'll get until you open them.  It's a yucky surprise--but boys like yucky, after all!

You can find The Trash Pack at Target, Kmart, Toys R Us, Walgreens, WalMart, pretty much any chain store that sells toys!

One of my readers will receive Easter Trash Packs! (US only).  Enter below by April 14th at 11 pm anyone's time.  I'll choose a winner the next morning using  After you enter, be sure and check out all the other fun stuff at our blog!

The Legend of the 3 Trees: A Heart-Warming Easter DVD #Giveaway

God always has a plan and a purpose for everything. He does things in His own unique way and in His own time.

The Legend of the Three Trees is one of those books that it's always been so hard to read to my children!  It's a timeless retelling of the classic folktale of three distinct trees, each with its own hopes, dreams, and aspirations. The story and the truth of it choke me up every time.  Each tree dreamed of becoming great—perhaps a majestic treasure chest, or a magnificent sailing ship, or maybe the tallest tree in the forest.

But their dreams don’t seem to come true. Disappointed and dejected, the trees despair until they each interact with Jesus Christ—in His birth, ministry, and ultimate sacrifice. In these experiences they learn that God has a special purpose for each of them.  The story touches my heart so much because it's real.  Our dreams often don't seem to come true, either... but God uses even the disappointments to make something beautiful of our lives.  This is the kind of reminder I've been desperately needing lately--2014 has been the hardest year for me in a long time!  This DVD is definitely for more than just the kids.

I was also excited to hear about the DVD version of the story for another reason that might sound silly--now my kiddos can see the story animated.  I don't have to risk reading it and tearing up like a baby. ;)  The cartoon is very well done and will make such a wonderful Easter gift for someone!

FREE Children's Picture Books From Tyndale Rewards!

What better way to encourage a love of reading in your little one than with books in the mail?

Because my kiddos love to get new books in the mail, I want to tell you how easy it is to give your kiddos the same pleasure.  These are just 2 of the books you can get free from Tyndale Rewards: The Rumble! Zap! Pow! Children's Bible and Little Blessings: Are Angels Read? 

About these Books:

Are Angels Real?
Kids want to know what's up with angels. From the best-selling Little Blessings line comes a fresh new book that is perfect for children up through five years old. With fun-to-read rhymes and colorful illustrations from Care Bears artist Elena Kucharik, this book is great not just for home but also for nurseries, Sunday school classes, preschools, and church worship settings. Scripture references provide a perfect tool for conversations with curious young minds.

Rumble! Zap! Pow!
This bright Bible storybook highlights the adventurous stories in the Bible and points its readers to God’s mighty power. The language is action-packed and kid-friendly, which makes it a great book to read out loud. The short stories, easy-to-read bold words sprinkled throughout each story, and the bright, cartoon-styled art will keep kids engaged. Each story is paired with a “Mighty Thought”—a simple statement that summarizes the Bible story. (Examples include God made the world; God is always in charge; God is a mighty leader; God rescues his people; God makes his power known). At the end of the story, the Power Words section gives a short scripture that can be used as a memory verse. The story ends with an activity designed for the active child (measure yourself with books and measure Goliath’s height with books; make a megaphone from a milk jug—to have a loud voice like Jonah needed).
