Five For Fighting Slice {Review}

It is review time again! This time I was able to preview Five For Fighting's latest album Slice. I have always been a fan of FFF so I could not wait to get my download of the album. I have been listening to this c.d. in the car since I got it. This album has the classic FFF sound that I love with some fabulous new songs. My favorite are Tuesday and Above the Timberline but, I could listen to the whole album over and over. FFF is currently on tour and there are still a couple of dates left so if you are in California, it will defiantly be a show worth checking out.
10-Nov San Francisco, CA Swedish American Hall
11-Nov Los Angeles, CA Largo at the Coronet

I am sad to say I missed the show here in Salt Lake City (it was the night of my brothers birthday) because I heard they are fantastic live. Hopefully I will be able to catch their show next time. For more info about Slice, check out the Five For Fighting website.

Album Tracklisting:
1. Slice
2. Note To The Unknown Soldier
3. Tuesday
4. Chances
5. This Dance
6. Above The Timberline
7. Transfer
8. Hope
9. Story Of Your Life
10. Love Can't Change The Weather
11. Augie Nieto

Make Something Monday

I like to make tutu's for my daughter for dress up or Halloween or if there is a really cute color of tulle at the store. I had some left over so I made a newborn tutu. It is so tiny and cute. The waist is about 7". Now I just need someone to give it to. I keep crossing my fingers to get accepted in a craft boutique, so it is still sitting here waiting for an owner.

Harry Connick Jr. Your Songs {Review}

This is my first official review! Yay! I was sent the new Harry Connick Jr. album, Your Songs, to preview before it was released for sale. I would have liked to post my review sooner, but as soon as it arrived my husband stole it. He really enjoyed listening to the smooth sounds of Harry's voice on his surround sound system. He claims it is an experience I must try. Hopefully I will be able to experience Harry in surround sound some day but for now, I was able to listen to the album in the car with my daughter. I have always enjoyed listening to Harry Connick and this album does not disappoint. My two year old even quieted down to listen to the c.d. He has a very mellow tone to his voice that has always reminded me of the Rat Pack. It is perfect for all of the love songs on the album. Your Songs really helped me to relax after a stressful day. And, he is not bad to look at either. I felt that a few of the songs (the newer ones) did not fit the quality of his voice, but over all it is another great album from Harry Connick Jr. For more information about Harry Connick Jr. or Your Songs, check out this behind the scene look at the making of the album or Harry's website.

Here is the album track list and the original performers:

All The Way (Frank Sinatra)
Just The Way You Are (Billy Joel)

Make Something Monday!

My mom wanted a new flower arrangement for her coffee table but could not find one she liked. For Mother's Day I decided to make her one. All supplies came from Hobby Lobby.

Make Something Monday!

I need to post a few more of the prizes I have won, but I have been very busy sewing for a wedding in San Diego. Here is the finished product. A custom bridesmaid dress!
I was approximately the same size as the bridesmaid, so I put the dress on for the pictures. It looked weird just on a hanger because of all the ruching. And please don't mind the horrible pictures. My husband wasn't home so I was trying to take them myself with the auto timer. I hope the wedding was great this last weekend!

Picture Princess!

My daughter is the Picture Princess!  Other than being absolutely adorable, having fabulous tan skin all year, and beautiful curly hair she is just full of joy.  She loves to dress up like a princess and dance around.  She makes costumes out of anything she can find and adds my high heels to her ensemble.  

Shabby Apple is having another amazing contest to find a Princess for their "little girls and girls dresses from Shabby Baby."  I picked the Hibiscus dress for my princess but it was hard to choose.  The entire Shabby Baby line is so cute.  I would like to nominate my baby to be the next Princess!

I started this Blog to enter a contest.  I did not win this contest. :(  But I have now discovered all sorts of giveaways and contests on other Blogs and I am addicted to entering!  My husband thinks I'm a little crazy, but I have now won a few times and I love it.  I thought I might mention a few of my winnings so you all can check out the products from the great people who have sent me prizes!  
If you check my sidebar you will see the Playlist I made to enter to win a copy of Twilight. 

  I made a list of songs I thought would be good for the next movie New Moon and Brooke from the New Moon Event blog thought it sounded good too because I won.  Check out her blog for all the latest Twilight Saga info and if you live in Utah you can get all the details for her New Moon premier event.  (her Twilight premier event was AWSOME!)

I also won a $20 credit to Bowlicious Bowtique.  I was able to order the cutest bows I have ever seen for my daughter.  
My favorite was the pink and green bow.  My daughters favorite is her pink kitty cat bow!

  They are very well made and the prices are great!  I will definitely be ordering more of these fabulous bows!   Make sure to check out the Bowlicious Bowtique blog.

One other prize I wanted to let you know about is The Awesome Book.  It is a great book about how people have given up on their dreams and we really need to be dreaming big.  It is a great story with very colorful, whimsical drawings.  My daughter loves to look at all the bright pictures.  You can purchase and read the whole story here.

If you want to win some prizes too then make sure to check out the Spring Bash going on over at Jolly Mom and Go Graham Go!  They have lots of giveaways going on right now!
