Here's a great review for you guys. It's from a company called Mixbook.
I decided to use an existing template they had. And what I decided to use was a "Father's Day" theme. Since Father's Day is coming up I thought I would make a book to give to my husband. This was so much fun to make and fairly easy too. You can upload your pictures from your computer, flickr account, and various other places.
Then you just pop you photos in the spots you want them, you can also add some text too. This took me longer to do then I thought. Not because the website was hard to use or anything, but because I put a lot more thought into this then I thought I would! I am really happy with how my Mixbook turned out. I received it the other day in the mail. The only problem is going to be - is not showing my husband til Father's day! I can't wait to give this to him.
Here's some pictures of the Mixbook:

Do you remember awhile back, I did some posts on Store Brand Formula? As I recall myself, it was how PBM Products were claiming false advertising against Enfamil maker Mead Johnson.
Well, now I have some news to report, I found out some more information on this topic, I want to share with you guys. Store brand infant formulas have won a major victory this week. The U.S. Circuit Court upheld a $13.5 million false advertising claim against Enfamil maker Mead Johnson.
PBM successfully argued that Enfamil's ads that claimed they were superior to store brand formulas was false and misleading advertising. In fact store brand formulas offer the same nutrients at the same levels as Enfamil. You can check out this website: storebrandformula.com for more information. This site is great to find out things like where to buy, questions and answers and even some info. on breast feeding. I really recommend this website. You can even read more about the case. The judge in the case wrote something like PBM cannot fairly compete with Mead Johnson until Mead Johnson stops infecting the marketplace with misleading advertising.
So basically what I am gathering from all this is that store brand formula is equal to those expensive formulas like Enfamil. Which is really great news for families out there in this economy!

I took the Cascade Complete All-in-1 Action Pacs 24 Hour Challenge for this review & giveaway.
Here's what I had to do:
- Bake a Blueberry Cobbler.* Enjoy!
- Set the empty baking dish out for 24 hours
- Without rinsing, put it in the dishwasher with Cascade Complete
Here are my results:
Just for the heck of it - Picture of My Blueberry Cobbler -
Picture of dish after Blueberry cobbler gone & sitting for 24 hrs:
Picture of dish after washing with Cascade Complete All-in-1 Action Pacs
As you can see - the dish was pretty messy after the blueberry cobbler was gone. I set the dish aside and did not soak it or pre-rinse or anything for 24 hrs. This morning I popped it in the dishwasher with my other dishes - popped in a Cascade Complete All-in-1 ActionPac - and ~ Voila! Beautifully clean dish!
With new Cascade Complete – you won’t mind taking turns at the sink. And if the thought of dirty dishes in the sink has ever made you think twice about making a favorite meal, Cascade Complete is here to help.
The excess scrubbing of cookware and dirty tableware is not only tiring, but time consuming. Allowing the remains of a delicious dinner to set in its baking dish could mean water logged fingers and hours in the kitchen.
Put your pre-soaking days behind you, and lighten your load with Cascade Complete All-in-1 ActionPacs. They break down, dissolve, and rinse away tough food particles, leaving your hands free and your dishes sparkling. Sound too good to be true? We dare you to take the 24 Hour Challenge.
Buy it: Try ActionPacs for less than $1.00 when you buy the new trial size at participating Walmart stores.
Win it: Five (5) lucky winners will win a New Trial Size Cascade Complete ActionPacs of their own.
Mandatory Entry: Please share the meal you are most excited to use the Cascade Complete All-in-1 Action Pacs to clean up after.
