Look what arrived at my door! (CSN Stores Review)

Wednesday, May 26, 2010

Ohh soooo exciting!

I was recently given the opportunity to review the wonderful CSN Stores! And one of their many great products from their over 200 stores. I was so excited that they chose me to do this. Who doesn't love a gift for no special occasion at all? 

For my review I chose none other than Fiesta Dinnerware. In Peacock and Tangerine!
They arrived very quickly and safely. I couldn't wait to get them out!
Are they beautiful or what? Just look at those yummy colors!
CSN Stores service was top notch! Seriously! They confirmed my order via email, they notifed me when my order shipped, which was very quickly within 3 days. And my order arrived quickly too, I had my dishes in 4 days of shipping!

And the dishes, of course are great too. Very good quality and well made. Fiesta makes tons of dishware from glasses to silverware and many accessories to match. But what I love most about Fiesta is their many fun and bright colors!

Now my new lovely dishes get to hang with these old lovely dishes! One big happy family!
If you haven't been over to CSN Stores I suggest you go check them out. I'm talking tons of stuff over there! Thank you CSN Stores!

(CLOSED) David Crowder Band CD - Giveaway

Monday, May 17, 2010

Ready for some fun?

I'm sure you've heard of the David Crowder Band! Yeah? Well, if not, where have you been? Church Music is their latest CD which actually came out in Sept/09 but it's what I've been listening to lately. It's in my truck and I crank it up!

There is a lot going on, on this 17 track CD! It's dramatic, mysterious and romantic while at the same time uplifting and motivating. It's also a bit dance with an occasional 80's feel to it. I love it!

I've been asking myself, "self, how can I use my tiny little blog to further His Kingdom?". And though I don't have a final answer for myself on that one, I figured a little Church Music wouldn't hurt!

One lucky winner will get their very own brand new copy of David Crowder Band Church Music! Yup, it's sitting right here ready to ship!

And coming along with it will be this new he loves hand stamped necklace pictured below! Inspired by their song How He Loves. Sterling silver and features a tiny cross and "he loves" hand stamped along the bottom.

To Enter: This time it's gonna be simple! Leave us a comment and let us know what your favorite Bible Verse is. And if there is a reason behind it being your fave tell us that too. That's it! Good Luck!

Open to US residents only through Thursday, May 20th. Winner will be announced this Friday! Make sure we have a way to contact you if you should win.

Cute stuff over at The English Pea, so much to choose from! There are tons that I liked and decided on these for my son's teacher. We will give them to her for an end of year/goodbye gift. Along with a necklace of course!
What I like most about the English Pea is their great selection of cute stuff for BOYS! If you're a mom of boys then you know how hard it is to find cute stuff for boys! Check these out!

And there are more including trains and animals! And cute stuff for girls too of course. Thank you Dress-up Drawer for choosing me and thank you English Pea for my great stationary!
