Tips for Planning the Perfect Proposal

Bring the bling - The engagement cannot go on without the all-important engagement ring, or without a creative stand-in! What are you using to propose?

Capture the moment - You’re going to want to share this special moment with friends and family, so be sure to hire a wedding photographer, videographer, or recruit a talented (and secretive!) family member to memorialize the moment. What do you plan to do with your proposal pictures?

Always have a plan B - You want to make sure your proposal goes off without a hitch, so make sure to have a backup plan! Have you had a proposal go awry? What are your best tips for pre-proposal troubleshooting?

Viva Formula & Affiliate Program

Vivia Formula - VF-360 Defense System

If this Affiliate program interests you, click the Join Now below.

Regular multi-vitamins are very limited, very, as they usually come in a one-tablet form. Having a single tablet limits the amount and types of ingredients that can be placed within it, space-wise and formula-wise. Therefore, regular multi-vitamins contain mainly vitamins and only a few supplements, if any at all. 

On the contrary, VF-360 Defense System, a revolutionary super-food, multi-vitamin and powerful anti-aging agent is packed with both as it comes in three balanced tablets (morning, noon and night) enabling it to ensure optimal absorption in your body and to contain much, much more than just a once-daily basic vitamin. 


You will earn a 35% commission on all sales that you bring in! 
(their cookie NEVER expires - lifetime commissions).
Their affiliate program is operated by ShareASale.

Motivate Your Child Action Plan

*I was compensated with a FREE copy of the Motivate Your Child Action Plan for this post. My opinions are my own.*

Learn how to develop a parenting plan that takes your child’s unique needs into account. Use the outline of firmness, visioning, teaching, prayer, and coaching to flesh out a strategy to move your child from where he is today, to where he needs to go. The Motivate Your Child ACTION PLAN walks you through the process of identifying an area of weakness and then naming the character quality that needs to grow in your child’s heart. Read about the value relationship and learn the building blocks to make relationships strong in your home. From there you’ll have the framework to move through each day with greater direction and confidence.

The Motivate Your Child ACTION PLAN will give you the tools to address sibling conflict, poor school performance, disrespect, laziness, procrastination, sloppy work, emotional outbursts, self-centeredness, and so much more.
This approach will equip and empower you to parent any age child, from toddlers to teenagers, and beyond. If you have a problem to address in your child, this book can help you envision the solution and then lay out the steps to get there.

It also contains 12 audio presentations by the authors to explain, encourage, and inspire you as you develop your plan.

In the graphic below you will find a code for $5.00 off the already discounted price of the book! 

As a mom of 7, often I think that we as parents know it all by now. But almost everyday I am surprised at what I don't know! Parenting can be so hard at times and its hard to believe that the results will be worth the effort. 
When I first got this book, I was hesitant. But as I started reading and filling out the areas of questions and answers, I started to see the improvements that could be had in my kids. Better their insides and the rest will follow!

"If it looks like disobedience, sounds like disrespect,and feels like abuse, then there is definitely a problem." 

You cant just tell kids to be quiet, stop arguing, and stop the back talk. It may not be the best approach. Kids need to know what to do instead and they also need the tools to get there to do that.

This book can help you get the tools to help them

I give it a 5 out of 5!!

Prefer an ebook? From May 18-20 you can get the ebook version for only $2.99!

Zims Crack Cream, NOT what you might think!

Disclosure: I received one or more of the products mentioned above in exchange for review from Giveaway Service website. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. Reference ID: pmf1ee083baf7bb88affb4bbe77dd229f0

Zim's Advanced Crack Creme with Hydrocortisone combines Arnica & Organic Aloe with Hydrocortisone to temporarily relieve itching and rashes associated with minor skin irritations such as:

Poison Ivy
Poison Oak
Insect Bites

Temporarily relieves itching associated with minor skin irritations and rashes due to poison ivy, poison oak, sumac, insect bites, detergents, jewelry, cosmetics, soaps, seborrheic, and dermatitis. Other uses of this product should be used only under the advice and supervision of a doctor.

Smell: There is a slight smell. I cant put my finger on what the smell is like, but its not too bad or overpowering. 
Texture: Very smooth and silky like.

Overall: It stopped the bug bit itch's my daughter had after playing outside. It also worked on my sons scaly patch from his psoriasis. I liked it and will probably get it again in the future.

Note: It does say "Not to apply directly to the rectum." 
I would have hated to be the reason why that was added to the label!
