Shari's Berries Review & Discount Codes...



I can't believe that May is only a few days away and that means Mother's Day is quickly approaching! Have you thought about what you are getting your mom this year?


(oh I LOVE LOVE LOVE the box with logos/sayings these arrived in... they weren't kidding when they said that the "contents may disappear immediately!" ha ha)


Well if you haven't thought of anything then you HAVE to check out Shari's Berries - berries.com! Oh my goodness does everything on the site look amazing! Well I recently had the opportunity to try something from Shari's Berries which offers things like chocolate covered strawberries, hand dipped caramel apples, cupcakes, cakes, truffles, cookies and so much more!


After browsing the whole website let me tell you it was a tough decision because everything looked sooooooo good! Chocolate is close to my heart though so I couldn't resist trying the 6" Three Layer Chocolate Cake $39.99!

It is the ultimate chocolate cake! A high three layered chocolate cake is filled with rich chocolate cream. It is surrounded by chocolate glaze and appointed with an elegant chocolate border.


(Well I wanted to do as the box mentioned, but if you continue reading you will know that I am nice and shared with my whole family! hehe)


Mmmmm Grady LOVED it :)

My family and I were so excited when this arrived. We couldn't wait to dig into this gorgeous cake! After trying this out I can honestly say this is one of the BEST cakes I've ever had! It was so rich like a chocolate cake should be, it was so creamy and very moist. You would definitely have to LOVE chocolate to love this cake. For $39.99 you might think a 6" cake is rather pricey but don't let that fool you because it was worth every penny. It was that good! Not only was it that good, but this cake is very thick with the 3 high layers and the smallest piece is very satisfying! There was lots to share with this one!!


Let me show you a few more items that any mom would just LOVE to receive...okay well I would anyways :)

You can order strawberries covered in chocolate like these Full Half Dozen Hand Picked Fancy Berries that are only $19.99 right now!



I love snacking and think this Chocolate Covered Snack Sampler $29.99 would be so neat to give or receive. It's something different, but would definitely be appreciated!


The last item that I want to show you is this Red Velvet Cake - how good does this look! Everyone needs a little Red Velvet Cake in their life... mmmmm hmmmm for sure! ;)

Sesame Street Live Review...

Sesame Street Live Presents....



We were so excited to receive tickets to go to Elmo's Green Thumb one of the many live performance shows presented by Sesame Street Live. Elmo's Green Thumb focuses on Elmo and his sunflower friend "Sunny" which teaches kids all about the different seasons, planting flowers, learning about nature and what having a "green thumb" really means.


Being green in this day and age is so very important and what a great show to help teach kids at an early age that they can help out in a big way by taking care of our planet and planting trees and flowers! The show also taught kids about counting and their ABC's too- which is great for any age!



Jace & Grady couldn't wait to see the show. They had asked me almost everyday for the past month when the show was and got more and more excited the closer it got!


For Easter we got them each a Cookie Monster Shirt to wear to the show since that is their favorite character, some Elmo bubble bath and Elmo bath foam since it was the Sunday before the big show. They were so excited about receiving Sesame Street products in their baskets!

The facility we attended the show at was The Veterans' Memorial Civic & Convention Center. We were very impressed with the facility and even more impressed that we were only 9 rows up from the stage! The boys could hardly wait until the show began and I will have to admit that Craig and I were really excited to see the it too!


Let me tell you it did not disappoint! The characters were all so fun, the music was great and I loved that the show not only entertained the audience, but also tried to deliver a very educational message.


I think it's great to mix a little education in with lots of fun - you never know what kids will pick up and carry with them throughout their lives so why not make it a positive message wrapped in a fun and catchy show? The boys sang, clapped and danced throughout the show and it was so much fun being together as a family, watching them be so interested in learning and having a great time watching all of their favorite Sesame Street characters!



Craig and I were very impressed with the whole thing! The characters were so funny, the lights, music and backgrounds were all so great and the kids haven't stopped talking about it yet!


We would highly recommend one of the Sesame Street Live shows to each of you! It was so fun, lasted about two hours with a little intermission and is fun for all ages! There were boys, girls, young and old there and everyone seemed to enjoy the show!



To find out more information about Sesame Street Live please go to:



We are so thankful that we had the opportunity to attend one and hope to see another in the future! A huge thank you goes out to the Vee Corporation for sponsoring tickets not only for my family but for the giveaway prize as well!

Happy 8th Anniversary!!!


APRIL 26TH - HAPPY 8TH ANNIVERSARY!




It's hard to believe that 8 years ago today I married my best friend, my life long partner, my husband! Little did we know back then that our little family of just 2 would continue to grow into the family of 4 that it is today! (Well 5 if you count our dog) ;)


My husband is not only an amazing partner, but he is definitely one of the best dads in the whole World! Our boys love him so much and we are all very lucky to have him in our lives!!

We've definitely shared good times and bad over the years but today we are still in love and strong as ever and I hope the next 8 are even better!


Here's to making more beautiful memories into the future and years to come!


I love you so much Craig and can't imagine my life without you!

XoXo, Jenna

Christi Harris Precision Brow Planning System Review Give-a-way ends 04/30/2011


So what is one of the most important features on your face? Of course your eyebrows. Whether it be that they are too thin or maybe too thick it can change the appearance of your whole look. Well worry no more and let me introduce you to the Christi Harris Precision Brow Planning System. Watch this video to see how it works!



The Christi Harris Precision Brow Planning System is a revolutionary approach for achieving perfect brows. The kit includes everything you need to do this without ever tweezing, waxing or threading again!


In the kit you will receive The Precision Brow Planner (shown above) which is a tool that gently glides over the skin to remove the hair, leaving no skin damage, redness or irritation! The Precision Brow Planer gives you a sleek, clean line without gaps that no other method can. It gives you perfect brows now and forever!


You will also receive Adda Brow which makes a sparse brow full again and unlike pencil looks completely natural. The Adda Brow color is universal for all brow hair colors and the combination of Adda Brow, Color Blend Trio and Duo Diffuser along with the professional quality brushes allows you to dress up or down your brows, naturally fill and shade as well as contour and highlight the complete eye for the perfect brows every time guaranteed!

I really wanted to review this kit on my mom. Her brows needed some major help as she used to tweeze a lot and as she's aged they have just become super super sparse! So here is a before picture, as you can see her brows were very uneven and very sparse especially on the ends... (oh my she will kill me when she's sees these close up pictures, ha! Sorry mom!! I still think you are beautiful though :) )

and here is a picture of me doing just 1 brow (the right one on the screen) - look at the HUGE difference this made! Look how full her right brow looks compared to the left one and how even it looks! We used the tool to shape what she had then filled in with the other products! It looks like it has shape now and looks so full! I actually gave my mom this kit and she has been using it daily! She loves the appearance of her new brows!

My mom and I would recommend this to anyone who needs eyebrow help. We are both so impressed with how her brows turned out and even more at how easy it was to do! Not only do you get the kit but you will also receive the Plane Truth About Brows booklet that gives you step by step directions!

ProFlowers Mother's Day Review & Give-a-way ends 04/25/2011


HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY


Mother's Day is quickly approaching, have you thought about what you are getting your mom this year? Well what about flowers- they are one of the best gifts. They are perfect for the mom who has everything, for the hard to buy for and are always the perfect gift to show your mom how much you respect her for all she's done for you!



I was recently able to review a bouquet from ProFlowers. ProFlowers is an online flower shop that offers you the best quality flowers at a cheap price! ProFlowers has an unbridled passion for farm fresh flower delivery… and offering flowers at very competitive prices. From the time their flowers and plants are freshly plucked from the soil to the time they arrive at your doorstep, office, hospital room or elsewhere, their experts take great strides to ensure that you receive only the freshest, most beautiful flowers possible, whether they're get well flowers, thank you flowers or Mother's Day flowers!

You'll be excited to know that ProFlowers offers you the ProFlowers freshness promise on every flower delivery they make. ProFlowers’ freshness guarantee on deliveries is unparalleled as they promise freshness for seven days after your arrangement arrives or it will be replaced! That’s how serious they are about bringing you freshness, quality and value!!



After browsing all of their beautiful arraignments I chose to review the Deluxe All the Frills bouquet which consists of 7 light pink roses, 5 dark pink roses, 4 pink alstroemeria, 3 green Anastasia mums and 3 steps of ruscus.



(a close up of my gorgeous flowers- look at those bright colors, LOVE them!!)


I chose this bouquet because I LOVE anything girly! The pink and green together is just gorgeous and the name (Deluxe All the Frills) says it all! Feminine and full of color, this sophisticated combination of one dozen multi-hued pink roses and pink alstroemeria are contrasted with green anastasia mums. It’s the perfect gift for someone who deserves all the frills.



If you've never ordered flowers online you should know that they arrive in a huge box packaged very carefully to ensure perfect delivery without damage. You do have to arrange them yourself which is very easy to do. Of course they aren't going to look exactly like the picture but none-the-less they are beautiful!!



You should definitely take ProFlowers into consideration when searching for that perfect Mother's Day gift this year! ProFlowers does have a coupon page with some awesome deals that you might want to take advantage of! They have another great deal to offer you guys- as a thank you for becoming a fan of their Facebook Page they are offering everyone 20% off so make sure you go "like" them!
