Sara said... 35

The baby cloth books look great, my 6 month old needs some books of his own since his 2 year old brother doesn't want his paper books destroyed. THank you for entering me for the DVD giveaway. Have a great night!

and the winner of the Name This Recipe....goes to Amanda. I used judges, (my husband and my mom) because they were unbiased. I did like how my name was included in this though.

Congratulations ladies! I will email you shortly for your info!

Aloha Friday

Aloha Friday is brought to you by An Island Life, head on over, sign mister linky and join in the fun!

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

My Question This Week:

How early do you wake up every morning? Do you wake up earlier during the week and sleep in the weekends?

From the advice of a good friend, I've started waking up a little earlier during the week. I used to wake up when the first child woke up. She was right though, it's nice to get up have my coffee and have a little "me time" before the little ones get up! Which is exactly what I'm doing right now! Our whole family tends to sleep in an extra hour on Sundays, not sure how we got in the habit of it. Sunday is definitely our laziest day though.

Happy Green Bee-Review and Giveaway

About Happy Green Bee:

Roxanne Quimby, who has an amazing history herself, started Happy Green Bee when she saw a void in children's clothing. All I have to say is wow! Roxanne is truly amazing and I encourage you to view her video on Happy Green Bees press page from the Today Show.

Happy Green Bee has a simple philosophy, "We created Happy Green Bee so that a child can be a child, first and foremost," Quimby explains. "By using organic cotton, a comfortable and practical fabric, and simple bee-striped patterns, children feel as comfortable as they look while their parents take a small step in making a big difference in the environment their children live in."

What I love:

I love that every item made at Happy Green Bee is made 100% organic. There are so many reasons to buy organic. For me it is important to buy organic, because I feel like I am taking even better care of my family. Knowing that the materials that touch their skin are 100% organic give me assurance. Not only is the organic fiber better for their skin, but it is oh so soft! The colors are bright and vibrant. They remain bright and vibrant after washing, and also the fabric does not shrink or stretch.

Included in my Happy Green Bee package was some information on how they are a Fair Trade organization. Now I am still learning about Fair Trade myself, but here is a quote from Wikipediea "Fair trade's strategic intent is to work with marginalized producers and workers in order to help them move towards economic self-sufficiency and stability."

Happy Green Bee was so nice to provide The Petal Dress in the Watermelon/Sky color for Olivia.
Immediately upon opening I noticed how soft the dress felt. Olivia also was very comfortable crawling and cruising in her dress. Now Olivia is 20 lbs, and I requested the size "medium" (20-25 lbs.), just in case. I always round up when ordering for her. The dress was just a little big, but honestly still looks very cute on! I would almost recommend going big, because now she can wear it as a longer dress, and I'm sure it will last her at least a couple more inches of growth before it becomes too short. It was a little cooler the day she wore it, so when we headed out for errands I just threw on some leggings in a fun color! She received compliments everywhere we went!

To Buy:

You can purchase your own Petal Dress, among many other items from Happy Green Bee for just $36.00.

To Win:

Happy Green Bee has generously offered one of my readers their choice of up to $50 in merchandise! You get to choose what you would like as long as it does not exceed $50.

Visit Happy Green Bee, and then come back here and in the comments tell me what you would choose!
