Coraline.....Greatest Animated Movie Ever?


Well I finally got around to seeing Coraline I was unable to catch it in theaters and now I want to kick myself in the butt for it. I know this movie would be awesome on a big screen in 3-D!!! I have to admit I love animated films and this one is no exception it is perfect in every way for me it has the dark/goth feel and gives Tim Burton a run for his money on his Nightmare Before Christmas and Corpse Bride! This movie in no way lets you slip into boredom it keeps exciting new twist at every turn it keeps getting stranger and stranger but I have to give it 5 stars and 3 thumbs way up! If you haven't seen this movie yet RENT IT!! I will say tho that there are some scenes in the film that may not be suitable for smaller children and that it may scare them a bit.

I know it's a bit late for Prom pictures but.....


I have recently started scrap booking and my sister had asked me to do a page for her and her boyfriend from Prom this year. I am so proud of it I just had to share it and I am hoping that I will get more in the grove and do more scrap booking for my son (goodness knows I need to do something with all the photos of him). But anyways I'll shut up and just let you see my handy work :)

Boy what did I get into?

Well today is the day I have decided that it is time to start potty training my son. The only problem is I have no idea since I am a first time mom at how to go about starting this tedious task! I guess it is time for me to check out some books and see what kind of program I can come up with. I would love to hear if you have any suggestions.

About Me and My Family!

First off I want to say Welcome to my blog and Thanks for stopping in!

My name is Stephanie, I am married to a wonderful man Chad and have a beautiful little boy Zane who was born 02/07/2008! We live in a very small town in Arkansas but I wouldn't have it any other way, I absolutely love the small town life!

I am a stay-at-home mom at the moment and loving every bit of it! There is just nothing better than being able to spend the first few years of your child's life at home with them.

When I get a little bit of time (that's not very often) I like to read, watch movies, experiment with new recipes and surf the web for cool new toys and products for my son! Oh and did I mention I am addicted to contest and sweepstakes?

I have realized in my first year of motherhood money is tight and I am all about saving some money so I am out here to find the best coupons and deals. To share with other moms weather they are first time moms or multiple time moms we all need a little savings sometimes especially with the economy these days.

I love doing product reviews and hosting giveaways. I am always looking to find out about the latest and greatest products. And to share them here with you!

I try to live everyday like it was my last and make the most of the time I am given by God to spend with my family and friends.
