November is Adoption Month!

How very fitting that November is National Adoption Month and in our family we end this month of Thanksgiving with the birthday of our beautiful daughter. She was born and joined our family through the wonderful blessing of adoption 8 years ago!

I am so grateful for adoption and for the blessings that I have in my two amazing kids!

A few weeks ago I was sent a book via One2OneNetworking.com. The book is called "Adopted Ed" and it was written by Darren Maddern.



It is a great book! It would be a great read for any family who has been touched by adoption. The book discusses birth, childhood, dealing with bullies who are calling the child names because he is adopted, and then the eventual desire to meet his birth family.

There was one line that I really laughed at! Ed was dealing with the bullies and he said, "My parents chose me, yours were stuck with you." I thought that was funny.

Anyway.... I liked the book, it is something that I plan on reading and discussing with my kids. I think they will like the fact that it rhymes like a Dr. Seuss book and the illustrations are colorful and eye catching.

Here is a link to buy the book!!

Norah Jones - Featuring

I got my copy of the new Norah Jones a couple of weeks ago. I actually was lucky enough to get a preview copy! I have to say we LOVE it!!

The name of the album is "Featuring" and all of the tracks she recorded with another artist! I love the song "Baby It's Cold Outside" she sang with Willie Nelson! She also has a great song with Dolly Parton!

But it's not all country! She sings with The Foo Fighters OutKast and MORE!!!

Check it out!
Thank you One2One Network for letting be part of this album launch!

Did you know?

CSN is comprised of over 200 online stores, selling everything from children's backpacks to cookware!!

Yahooooo!!! I am so excited to hear..........


Norah Jones has a new album that will be in stores on November 16th!! I am super excited for it! The title is "Featuring", it is a star-studded collection of Norah Jones’ musical collaborations from the past decade.

The 18 songs on the album include duets with such legends as Ray Charles, Willie Nelson, and Dolly Parton, and with 21st Century icons from OutKast to the Foo Fighters. The tracks on …Featuring span her entire career, from one of her earliest recording sessions (a version of Roxy Music’s “More Than This” with guitarist Charlie Hunter in 2001) to her most recent performance, a song called “Little Lou, Ugly Jack, Prophet John” that she cut with Belle and Sebastian, which will also appear on their new album.

“It's so exciting and flattering and fun when I get asked to sing with somebody that I admire,” says Jones. “It takes you a little bit out of your comfort zone when you're doing something with another artist. You don't know what to expect—it's kind of like being a little kid and having a playdate.”
Also included are recordings by some of Jones’s own bands and side projects (The Little Willies and El Madmo), and performances with artists that she’s toured with including M. Ward, Sasha Dobson, and Gillian Welch and David Rawlings. Songs on …Featuring range from classics recorded by Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Joni Mitchell, and Roy Orbison to new material by such wide-ranging innovators as Ryan Adams and Q-Tip.

So yeah! I am SOOOOOOOO excited!!!

This is my personal opinion and I am entered to win a gift card through One2One Network by participating in the promotion of this album.

Fiber One Giveaway Extended!!!

Okay -- so I totally dropped the ball getting the word out on this giveaway...so I have extended it until Friday November 5th!!!
