  7. Ok, I'm a follower, am now following Melanie, and my blog is named No Condemnation so I am constantly reminded that I am not condemned even when I don't get the laundry done, and forget someone's library book, lunch and/or milk ticket, didn't get the dishes done and feed my family Muchas Gracias for dinner. That's why.

  8. I'm a Google Blogger, I am now following Melanie, and my Blog is called Blogation because I like how it sounds with "Updation". You know..."Updation on the Blogation." What's that you say? Updation is not a real word either? I know. That's how I roll.

  14. Im now following Melanie! Looks like a great blog!

  15. I'm a follower.....twin boys are a commonality....and your boys are so cute. My blog is named what it is because our life is like a bowl of cherries...sweet, yet pits are a part of life...and our name rhymes with cherries, so I just had to!

  18. The Leaking Window.

    My son had a field trip to the Portland Classical Chinese Gardens. During the tour the guide explained to us about these curious windows throughout the garden. Each window has "a unique design depicting nature or a geometric pattern." The windows leak a view. Lan Su Yuan Leak Windows -- a “'borrowed view,' sharing a glimpse of the verdant beauty that lies beyond."

    Well, I thought that was just the blog name I was looking for! Letting people have a glimpse into my life through a "window." How perfect... and to be part of a garden... well, I love my garden...

  19. I now follow you through Google and on Reader, so double the reading as well as following Melanie. My blog is A Life Not Quite Perplexed, looking at life with one hub, four kids, the youngest of whom has a number of special needs. I try to do it with some humour.

    Oh yes, an extra "u", I'm British.

  21. My blog "Love's Unfolding Journey" tile came from my love for Janette Oke books and because my life is a journey. The "Love" is God's undeserved love and leadership through my journey.

BeautiControl Giveaway!

Have you heard of BeautiControl? This is an incredible line of skin care products that truly work! It's skin care, bath and body, makeup and men's care!
When I was pregnant a friend of mine who sells this came over and pampered me and a few friends, and then I started using the face system just before the babies were born. It did wonders. Then I ran out, and I put it off and my skin got bad again. And then about 2 weeks ago I started using it again. Wow. A visible difference in just two weeks. It looks better and feels better!
I am super picky about my skincare items, and I don't buy just anything.  Plus, I still struggle with breakouts. This stuff not only smells amazing, and makes my skin feel incredibly soft, but it does it's job.
They have a huge line that you will have to check out, just go over to their website and browse around! You can see if there is a consultant in your area and host a spa party!!!

Today I am giving away a Chocolate Indulgence Kit! Um, yummy.

It includes *…

It seemed unfathomable, and in fact is quite ludicrous which she herself admitted to thinking as well. I cannot imagine working for a system that so blatantly traumatizes children who have been victims of trauma already. It is hard enough as a foster parent to watch this happen. I cried, I texted Trevor I couldn’t come home until she was in bed, that I had gotten a phone …
