WW #114 "The Performer"

The last week of school my daughter's class had a little play they did. She had a part as a "Valley girl." It was about Geography. The teacher said she should definately try out for the big school play next year.

And then on Father's day she finally had her dance recital. She was getting sick of me taking her picture. And you have already seen her in her costume. So I just got a few shots of her after the show. Here's one with her Dad. And one with her Aunt and Grandmother.

I should be getting the one's the photographer took soon. Getting a little nervous since it was over a month ago. How long does it take? Oh well. Hope I get them soon.

New Freschetta FlatBread Pizza

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Freschetta. All opinions are 100% mine.

Yum! I love pizza! So does my whole family. It seems like lately we actually have been having a little more pizza dinners. I think that is because now that the kids are home from school for Summer vacation, pizza is great for dinner. It is quick and easy, great for Summer dinners.

I really like Freschetta Pizza. I want to try the new Freschetta FlatBread Pizza. Looks like there are some great flavors to go along with it. They have Zesty Italian, Roasted Garlic and Spinach, Pepperoni or 5-Cheese. I know what my kids would like. My son would love the Pepperoni, and my daughter would love the 5-Cheese.

I think I would like to try either the Zesty Italian or maybe even the Roasted Garlic and Spinach.  I bet my husband would probably like any of the choices! I think I may look for some Freschetta Pizza later when I go to the supermarket. Because I also found out that you can get a coupon for $1 off. Just click this link to get your $1 off coupon: (

Check out the new Freschetta FlatBread for yourself. What kind do you think sounds good? I think I know what's for dinner. Now I just have to decide what kind I should get!

My take on the products:

I was really excited to receive these products. And I have been using the powders. Which go on so smoothly. Especially with the blush/shaping brush. I love getting new make up and brushes. And these are really great. The brush is so soft and big. Perfect for applying the powder!

I have been testing the Body Firming Gel on a small spot on my arm (as suggested) and am excited to start to use it in other areas. Just applying to my arm, I could feel it working already. And I really want to start on the supplements as soon as I can too.

WW #112 "Rehearsal"

I hope you are not sick of pictures of my daughter. It was either that or my new kitty - lol. I have a few new pics of her I want to show sometime too.

FriendGiftr - A Great Service!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of FriendGiftr. All opinions are 100% mine.

One of my favorite things to give people is Gift Cards. Come on - they make the perfect gift. They are great for teachers gifts, birthdays, Christmas, etc.

Once in awhile, though it can be tricky trying to figure out the right Gift Card for someone. Someone I like give them to is my in-laws. But some time it is hard to know exactly which one to get them. Sometimes I will get them one for a clothing store, or maybe a restaurant. I remember one time for Christmas we got them one to a restaurant, the only problem was - that restaurant was not anywhere near where they live. So they couldn't even use it.

That is where a great website I found can come in. It is called FriendGiftr. They provide a great service. What users can do is send real digital and/or physical gift cards to friends, family, etc. Buyers can select from over 120 of their favorite retailers or restaurants in different denominations. You can use the service from the FriendGiftr website, Facebook, iPhone, BlackBerry, and Android so you can have full control.

And one of the greatest things about FriendGiftr is that if you give someone a gift card they don't want - they will be able to exchange it for another one they do want at no additional cost. And the buyer will never know. They can even split the gift card across multiple merchants if they want too.

So I bet when I gave my in-laws the gift card to that restaurant they couldn't go to, I think they would of loved it if they could of exchanged it for a Kohls gift card. One of there favorite stores!
