Car seat cover + more giveaway *CLOSED*

I haven’t done a review/giveaway for FluffyRumps is too long but I am here with another one!

Most of us, if not all of us, use a blanket to cover our babies when it’s cold outside when they are in their car seats. It is so annoying to me that I can’t keep it tucked under Lily without it moving, falling off, or her pulling it out from underneath herself. I wouldn’t have to check so much to make sure the blanket was still in place and/or fix it when it did!

Thank goodness I don’t have to do any of that anymore! Rhonda as come up with a great idea! I was so excited for it to get cold so I could use this with Lily! I have to admit though, for whatever reason, I had trouble figuring out how it went on. I couldn’t picture it. I felt silly when I looked at the pictures Rhonda has posted on her FB page of these covers. It was definitely a slap-the-forehead kinda moment!

I love the fabric that she uses…..so soft! She has many different in stock covers that y’all can choose from!
I use this cover on Lily every time we go out & it’s cold…even chilly. It beats having to worry about a blanket & keeping it on!

I also found out that it makes for a great cart cover also. Stores are usually cold no matter the time of year anyway, so using this car seat cover as a cart cover in the summer will work out great! I have never used a cart cover before but it just looks bulky. This isn’t! You can just take your baby from the carseat to the cart and not have to take anything off or add anything.

I will definitely be using this next winter also! I don’t think that Lily will have out grown the leg part by then. Please check them out & get one!

* Week 20 *

Baby’s digestive system is busy creating meconium (a tarry black substance made of swallowed amniotic fluid, digestive secretion and dead cells), which will fill the first diaper after birth. And, speaking of the diaper situation… baby’s genitals are now fully formed!

We are half way through this journey! Of course we never know when baby’s are coming but there are at least 20 more weeks left until we meet Baby L! How exciting!

Definitely feeling more movement but it’s only when sittinglouging. It will be cool to feel Baby L when I am standing and everything else. I am all belly this time around (same as I was with my daughter). I don’t thinkfeel that I am gaining weight anywhere else, my husband says the same thing. And I must mention that he is very honest with me about this kinda of thing & if he thought I was, then he would tell me. (One of the many reasons I love him!)
You know when you eat too much and you unzip your pants just alittle to feel better?! Well by the end of the day…that’s what I would like to do with my belly area! It is just so tight and uncomfortable!
I possted on my personal Facebook page that we should take stock in milk! This heartburn is killing me! The majority of the time it’s at night right as I am trying to go to sleep, but I do get it during the day. And I wish it was something that I could pinpoint and then stay away from….but it that were the case I wouldn’t be eating or drinking the rest of this pregnancy! It doesn’t matter what I ingest…it’s a promise that I will get heartburn. Doesn’t that mean the baby will have a full head of hair!?
I am getting more uncomfortable at night. When I fall asleep at night I am fine. It’s when I wake up to go to the bathroom or one of my kids wake up during the night or my husband wakes me up because he is snoring so loud! Anyway, it’s when I wake up in the middle of the night when it’s hard for me to go back to sleep & get comfortable.
Smells still get to me but not as bad as it used to. There isn’t anything specific…just depends on how the smell hits me.
Pretty much the same thing with food….nothing specific, just depends on how I am feeling at that moment. Which can suck because I will crave something, start making it, and then all of the sudden it makes me feel so ill!
Last week we got some more baby stuff! I will post some in a different post if anyone wants to see!

2 more days (Thursday 011912) until my next dr appointment! I am so excited about this appointment. As you all know we aren’t finding out the gender of Baby L until heshe makes their grand entrance…..BUT that doesn’t mean I am not going to looking & trying to figure out what is or isn’t there! You would think that with this being my 5th child, I would be able to tell the difference when looking at the ultrasound…..but I am not! I have had several dreams about this appointment and the gender never changes. Now I will say that I don’t know if it’s because I really think & want this baby to be a girl or if my dreams are the truth. Good thing we will eventually find it out! I will make a post & video once I get back home from this appointment to let you all know how it went & to say if I got a sneak peak at anything. Fingers crossed!!!!

Ok, I have some giveawaysreviews to write up and post for you all! There will be one posted starting tomorrow until Friday! So be on the look out for those. I have had friends ask me if I would be doing weekly videos like I started out doing & I said yes. So follow this link to my Youtube channel if you would like to hear me talk about my pregnancy!

Tune in next week for week 21 & see how things are going with me & Baby L!

Enjoy 🙂

I didn’t originally think of this idea but I thought it was such a great idea that I thought that I would try it out and see what the response would be! If what I have in mind actually comes together it would bring so much light to your business & bring more customers for you! If you would like to talk more about this and are interested in being apart of this, please email me at mommieventures@gmail.com!

Giveaway helper needed!

Hope that you all are having a wonderful, lazy Sunday! I am so glad that I am not starting my challenge today because I would have let myself down lol!

Anyway, on to the point of this post!
I was talking with my husband last night about how I need more subscribers to my blog so I can do more giveaways with certain companies & I was telling him that I wasn’t sure how to get more of you to subscribe. Because, let’s be honest, if I have over 200 fans on Facebook-I should have at least that many email subscribers….but I don’t 😦
So, because my husband is so smart, he come up with an idea! He thought that I should have a giveaway for those of you who have subscribed & then with this giveaway have more people subscribe to enter the giveaway.

With all that said, I need someone to help sponser a giveaway! The prize does not have to be something huge but just something big/good enough for people to want to win it & then in turn will subscribe to my blog!
So if you would be willing to donate something to this giveaway, please email me at mommieventures@gmail.com & put giveaway helper in the subject line!

Thanks & I hope to have this giveaway going on soon!


Halloween Giveaway

Good evening everyone!

I was going to post this tomorrow….but I didn’t want to wait lol 🙂

I have been helping spread the word about Tiffany’s Bowtique sales for maybe a month or so & I thought that I would ask them if they would be interested in a review/giveaway to go along with my posting about their sales. I was excited when she said yes. I was also excited because I wasn’t sure what I was going to get and had no idea what it was going to look like. I love surprises so I couldn’t wait to receive this in the mail!

Well I received it the other day and the hair clip that was made for my daughter is super cute! It’s not too small or too big for her head. (lol that sounds really!) My daughter really loves this bow! She even wants to wear it to bed but I had to draw the line somewhere. *I know, I am a mean Mommie ;)* When we were talking about the giveaway, Tiffany’s Bowtique wanted to do something for Halloween. Cool, didn’t have anything planned special for it, so I was happy to have a Halloween giveaway! If you are the winner, you will get the same bow that I received!

So I hope that you all will get in the spirit of Halloween and to win a very cute bow! So what do you have to do to win? Follow these instructions!

Mandatory Entry

*Visit Tiffany’s Bowtique’s website & tell me what is your favorite thing on her site!
