I recieved a yoplait coupon for fruplait in the mail for 1.50 of if you buy one package. I purchased mine they were 2.50 boy was I excited! When I got home I knew exactly what I was going to do with them .I put them right into the freezer. After 25mins they were pretty much frozen and ready to eat. My inital thought was they were going to taste chalky but not at all it was soo creamy and fruity despite it being frozen. Just a amazing taste all in one,there were nice sizes of fruit chunks and it come just enough in one container. I will be buying these again to try in my yogurt chicken dish and also with a fresh fruit pie. Here's the calories and decription

Home Naturals

We love our oil mix here!Ive been using this one for 2 months on three heads look how much is still there a little goes a long way its our secret mix but I must say a little goes a long way. Two main add ins into our mix is coconut oil and grapeseed oil.For the children I usually apply to the ends after a moisturizer only to the scalp on wash day. For me I use this as a pre poo, oil treatment, scalp moisturizer,and sealer. In the bottle theres six oils included.

Another Bead style !

I keep Bumbas hair braided or up as shes on Go Go Toddler and she is in daycare so we need on the go styles.This week we used the big beads which to be honest I love them. It gave a different look so I will most likey get a couple more packs.They only ran me 2.99 a pack not bad its a pretty big pack. Tomorrow this style will come down and we will do another braid style with the big beads.What I used was a rinse or leave in conditioner and a condtioning spray after applying a creame.

Another Hair style :)

Today I braided up Bumbas hair for about  3 weeks now shes been rocking a baby -fro or a braid in front with a baby-fro  Before that it was just a baby-fro maybe three ponies but ponies alone dont stay well in her hair. Usually I wash on Sat or Sun which ever works best for us  but I did this Tues because we didnt Sat or Sun. So this time instead of using a conditioner I mixed coconut milk & Aloe Vera juice(sometimes I add grapeseed oil or coconut oil) together and conditioned her hair with that. We have done it before a couple of times and loved it so it has returned. Also we only shampoo 1 time a month and I use a homemade shampoo for that with two of the main ingredients is coconut milk and african black soap not castile soap just a personal choice. Now, after her hair was washed with the conditioner mix her hair was air dried. Pause=Just for extra info I wash her hair by making six sections put in ponies with oucless bands,shampoo is only applied to the scalp. Okay, now once hair is dry i make four parts in those parts I condition scalp only this one time with Bee Mine Hair & Scalp or Our oil mix .  Each section was moisturized w/ shea butter and oil mix added to ends. I began making one part in front for a bang& two parts one big one for the top and small for back braids tied with ouchless bands. I did six braids in back  put into two ponies with pre dipped rubberbands. I then took the top part split into two and then the two parts split into two horizontal parts so thats 5 parts. I braided the top parts then the bottom six on each half part. Those braids was then put into two ponies each side which makes for total at the top. Lastly, braid that small front part. Beads were added as each braid was done. This may last one week for Bumba.

Reading Eggs Review
Reading Eggs is a online learn to read program for children. I was given the opportunity to try this with my three year old son.What we chose to do was do it as a night time activity to help wind him down some for bed.Its very easy to register and sign your child up. The whole set up of the site is great and the graphic are very eye catching and colorful. Its set up as a games with in mini games you do a lesson and play the lesson again or go to the next one.Juju's first lesson was M each mini lesson was find M,and words that start with M sound like mm mm. He understood this very well I proud to say. Proof that he can easily follow each board on his own and understand it.My thoughts on it is I enjoyed it myself and will continue to do these lessons with him at night he enjoys it and its a fun way to help him get ready for preschool. Go to and get your little one reading its so fun! Here's a screen shot of one of his lessons how cute is that! Video coming soon; Will update on Ju's reading progress at the end of the lesson he will do one each day HAPPY READING :)

Alot has changed since Bumba is getting bigger we are trying new things and figuring that there still are some more products that we enjoy using. Bee Mine still is our staple product that we fell in love with but with that also we are still shampoo'in with Shea Moisture and using the Shea Moisture Thickening Growth Milk. Now ALSO we have been here and there using Just For Me Hair Milk shampoo& conditioner which honestly I like alot and Bumbas hair takes Super to it. I do know that alot have a issue with the ingredients but really I feel it depends on the person and they hair. I do like to stick to natural but some things I have tried that isnt all natural has been ok in her hair. The only two I have tried is B&B Castor oil & Aloe Moisturizer and Just for me spray conditioner,shampoo&conditoner all other products natural.Every week we condition &shampoo. Every other week we deep conditon.
~Happy Hair :)~

So cute though :) She used to have dry hair in the back of her head not no more. The routine we have has been working which isnt much. But! the dry patch is gone . Ellies hair requires alot of moisture. The routine we have now since 10months is every Sat. Condition&EVOO rinse,and then air dry. After it air drys I apply Bee Lovely Moisturizing Daily Conditioner& finish with Juicy Daily Moisturizing Spritz. Every other Sat. we shampoo with SheaMoisture Head to toe wash&shampoo for babies just her scalp not all her hair and then condition. Then I'll apply drop each thats all it takes of Bee Mine Daily & Deja Milk w/Juicy Spritz to finish.
