I wish I knew about The Knot website when we were planning our wedding-I am not sure if it was around then though.  I have had a couple of friends who have had accounts with The Knot-it is fun seeing their story and looking at the progress of their wedding plans.  My sister used The Knot too-she said it was fun being able to put pictures up and share the details to their wedding.  The Knot is also a great way to share your gift registry.

Kick Start Your New Years: Exercise Day Fourteen: Corner to Corner Step Aerobics

Day Fourteen:
Corner to Corner Step Aerobics

  • Using a stair, position yourself so that your toes are pointing at the stair

  • Step up onto the lower left corner of the stair with your right foot. Bring your left foot up and kick it out in front of your body. Kick with your toes pointed up toward the ceiling and your leg extended directly out in front of you at a comfortable height.

  • Bring your left foot back down to the floor and follow with your right foot. Then, step up onto the lower right corner of the platform with your left foot.

  • Kick forward with your right foot, with your toes pointing to the ceiling. Kick at a comfortable height. Then, step back to the floor with your right foot, followed by your left foot.

  • Thanks,!

    Easy Exercise Tip: 
    • While you are doing housework, turn the radio on and jam out to your favorite beat.  Sounds simple enough, I know, but dancing is a great way to lose calories and work away that flab!  Just last night while I was preparing dinner, Lady Gaga happened to find her way onto my radio...hmmmm...and I was doing squats and dancing up a storm to the beat.  Music really helps to set a tone and a beat for our workout...and, for me anyway, it's really catchy and motivating!

    Dinosaur Train New Season Roars in on Monday!

    The hit television series Dinosaur Train  is roaring into 2011 with an all-new episode premiering Monday, January 17 on PBS KIDS (check local listings). We wanted to let you know so you can tune in.  In the all-new episode, “The Good Mom;” “Diamond Anniversary,” Mrs. Pteranodon meets fellow mom Millie Maiasaura, who is a little too over-protective of her kids. The two moms share some time comparing mothering methods in a play date at the Big Pond.  And, Mr. and Mrs. Pteranodon decide to surprise each other with gifts on their anniversary.  My sons really love this show!  We don't have cable, so PBS is on quite a bit in our household and as soon as Dinosaur Train started airing, my children were thrilled!  My second youngest son loves dinosaurs, so when it's on we watch it from start to finish...there can be no interruptions!
    The Dinosaur Train is brought to you by The Jim Henson Company.  You can like the Henson Company on Facebook.  You can also follow them on Twitter.
    And if you miss the TV broadcast of “The Good Mom;” “Diamond Anniversary” you can view it at the following link:

    U.S. Cellular Offers Buy-One-Get-One-Free on Samsung Mesmerize, Samsung Galaxy Tab, More

    MILWAUKEE (Jan. 12, 2011) – U.S. Cellular believes your special someone deserves the best this Valentine’s Day. That’s why, now through Feb. 17, the company, ranked the best wireless carrier in the country by Consumer Reports, is offering a buy-one-get-one-free sale on all of its Android-powered devices, including the Samsung Galaxy Tab and the Samsung Mesmerize, a Galaxy S smartphone. Consumer Reports rated Galaxy S devices, like the Mesmerize, number one above all other smartphones on the market today. Customers can get the Mesmerize, with its large touchscreen and super fast 1 GHz processor that makes watching videos, playing games and zipping through business and entertainment applications easy, for just $149.99 and get another one free after an $80 mail-in rebate.
    “We are pleased to offer everyone great deals on cutting-edge devices to keep them connected to the people and information that matter most,” said Laurie Poellinger, U.S. Cellular director of sales for Wisconsin. “All of our devices are all backed by the valuable benefits of The Belief Project and a quality, high-speed network, which has been recognized by J.D. Power and Associates with 10 consecutive awards for call quality in the North Central Region.”
    In another offer sure to win hearts, U.S. Cellular customers get a second Samsung Galaxy Tab for free when they purchase one for just $399.99 after $100 mail-in rebate and sign up for the $54.99 Belief Plan on both devices, which comes with 5GB of network data usage for each tablet and the ability to turn it into a mobile hotspot for other Wi-Fi devices. Other exciting offers include buy-one-get-one-free deals on other Android-powered phones like the HTC Desire for just $99.99, LG Optimus U for $29.99 and both the LG Apex and Samsung Acclaim for $49.99, all after $80 mail-in rebates. The carrier is topping off its sweetheart deals with a $100 Smartphone Activation Credit per line for new and existing customers who add smartphone lines to their Belief Plans.

Rewards can also be used to get faster upgrades to the newest phones in as little as 10 months, accessories, ringtones and for Overage Forgiveness. With “no contract after the first,” new customers who complete a two-year contract will never have to sign another one and will continue to get great benefits.

    Mixbook Review

    I was able to make a calendar using the new Mixbook website!  I really enjoyed it.  We needed a new calendar and I always try to do personalized ones with photo as I never seem to get any pictures developed.  The memory on my computer thanks me for that :)
    Anyhow, I loved it!  I love to scrapbook and am not the best at designing my own, so this website was a blessing!  They even have "stickers" you can add onto the pages.  I also thought it was really cool that I was able to share my calendar with friends.  My sister in law has been taking professional pictures of my family for years now and she was able to upload them onto my calendar page so that I could use them on the calendar!  I really like the idea of being able to work on a book or a calendar with friends/family!  I like being able to share it and allow others to work on it with me as other's input, for me, is always a plus.  I also really enjoyed the ability to add some pictures from facebook.  I cannot tell you how many people add pictures of my family on facebook and I love the pictures, but I don't print them out.  This was another great way to incorporate those photos.  With so many friends and family out of town, this site is so helpful.  Being able to share your work and pictures in a project together, even if far away, helps make the memories last.
    Right now, they have buy one get one photo books and calendars until January 19!  I would highly recommend to anyone, even if you don't want to "share" your work with others because the quality and the features this site offers are outstanding!

    Toobeez and EZFort Review

     We each received a neat item from

    I received the Toobeez 57 piece set to use at work and Ann received the EZ Fort.  Ann's kiddos love the EZFort-they like to pretend they are camping-it was pretty easy to assemble and is a great size for her 1, 4 and 6 year old.
    The EZFort is a supervised activity at the house as the younger kiddos like to pull on it and it has fallen down a couple of times.  Ann's daughter really likes it though-she is able to use it herself and likes her little privacy palace.

    The 57 piece Toobeez set has been a big hit with my kiddos at work.  I brought it out the first night back from winter break.  Everyone was very interested in it.  We started out having 2 teams with pieces and let them create their own structure-everyone was a bit crazy because it was the first day back from vacation.  We then decided to create a puppet theater.  That really got ideas flowing-we changed our lesson plans for the week to work with our new excitement of the puppet theater-we had 5 great puppet shows that the kids worked on!
     Now that the shows are over we changed the Toobeez to a reading tent for 2 people-it has been used everyday!  They love it!
    What I like about the Toobeez 57 piece set is that it really leaves room for your imagination-the set comes with pictures but no "plans" for creating so we were really able to explore and test out different strategies for making our creations.  There is also a great storage/carrying bag that all of the pieces fit into-perfect for taking somewhere else or just to store when not in use.

    I also like that the pieces twist together and have a little lock, to take apart you untwist and take it out.  Pretty simple and fun!

    Kick Start Your New Years: Quick, Cheap and Easy Recipe Day Fourteen: Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak

    Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak

  • 2 pounds lean ground beef

  • 1 (1 ounce) envelope dry onion soup mix

  • 1/2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs

  • 1/4 cup milk

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of chicken soup

  • 1 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of mushroom soup

  • 1 (1 ounce) packet dry au jus mix

  • 3/4 cup water

  • Directions:
      1. In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, onion soup mix, bread crumbs, and milk using your hands. Shape into 8 patties.
      2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Dredge the patties in flour just to coat, and quickly brown on both sides in the hot skillet. Place browned patties into the slow cooker stacking alternately like a pyramid. In a medium bowl, mix together the soup, au jus mix, and water. Pour over the meat. Cook on the Low setting for 4 or 5 hours, until ground beef is well done.
      3. ENJOY!
      To lessen the sodium intake, you may want to use low sodium varities of the soup.  This is great with some mashed potatoes and using the liquid as gravy...yum!  You may also want to brown the patties the night before so that you have more time in the morning just to throw it all in the slow cooker and go!
