Precious Moments True Beauty Is Reflected From The Heart -Review and GiveawaypreciousmomentsLife Is Filled With Precious Moments. Each day is a gift in itself. Some days are good some days are not so good and some days are just precious. There are many precious moments in our lives that need to be celebrated. Recently I was invited to be an Ambassador Blogger for Precious Moments. I felt so proud and honored to be included into the fold of Precious Moments. My best friend has a huge collection for Precious Moments that she has collected throughout her life. They are so beautiful and with a glance she can see many of her life’s milestones on display throughout her house. As for me, I do have collected a few Precious Moments including the Bride & Groom, the graduate, First Holy Communion for my sons and more. Each one represents something very special in my life.

When the Precious Moments box arrived the other day I called my daughter immediately. She has never had her own figurine.  We opened the box together and there were many smiles. This figurine, Precious Moments- True Beauty Is Reflected From The Heart was about to be my daughter’s very first Precious Moments. She was beyond thrilled. Honestly, Precious Moments could not have chosen a better one to send me. Emily was born after me being a boymom for sixteen years, I kind of thought by that point there would not be a ballerina in our house. So, ballet is definitely is a Precious Moment in our family. The picture below is what I see when I look at the Precious Moments figurine. When I asked my daughter what it meant to her she told me it think about all of times she has danced and practiced ballet. I hope those memories will stay forever every time she looks at this beautiful figurine. It also brought back my own memories of my childhood and how much I loved ballet.ballerinaemily4

ballerinamommyFor nearly forty years Precious Moments has been creating gifts that celebrate caring, sharing, faith and love. Precious Moments offers an adorable figurine of a ballerina who demonstrates her poise and beauty. Beauty is found in confidence, compassion, determination, and so many other aspects that lie far deeper than the skin. As this diligent dancer practices her ballet positions at her barre, her beauty is not only reflected in the mirror, but from her heart as well. A graceful gift for anyone with an appreciation for ballet. Porcelain/Resin/Glass. 5 ¼” H. SRP: $55.99

peepseasterbasketcloseupEaster is a wonderful time in our house and for our family. We love spring and we love to celebrate the holidays with our family and friends. We spend Easter time baking and spending time with the family. When the bunny visits our house, he always leaves PEEPS®! It brings me right back to my childhood- remembering waking up Easter morning to running to see if the Easter Bunny left me some of those delicious little yellow chickies. Back then there was not a big variety of Peeps available. Now a days my children feast on Chocolate covered PEEPS® , flavored PEEPS®, Bunnies, and even Peeps plush! Below I listed everything that we included in our incredible PEEPS® Easter basket. Did I mention that we love MIKE AND IKE® jellybeans?…and HOT TAMALES® jellybeans?

peepseastercupcakesIn addition to bunny basket making, our family loves to create baked treats with our Peeps®. Every holiday we use them in a way that makes everyone happy that tests them out. This year we baked cupcake baskets and nests and adorned them with yellow Peeps® chicks. They are just regular yellow boxed cupcakes. We frosted them, put on some green sprinkles, added a few chocolate eggs and topped them off with chicks! The baskets we used some marshmallow twine. What do you think? I absolutely love the way they turned out. I also love that our family is making memories in the kitchen baking together and keeping Peeps® as part of our holiday tradition. That brings me back to my mom and I baking together and the cherished memories I have of those precious days. Hoping from the bottom of my heart that my children continue those same traditions with their own children some day. We love you Peeps®. Happy Easter! Check out all things Peeps® here:

New York International Auto Show– Spotlight on Nissan and Ticket Giveaway! #GNONYIAS16 #GNONYIASNissan

As a mom of three, I find myself constantly behind the wheel of our car– whether it’s dropping the kids off at school in the morning, picking them up in the afternoon, going grocery shopping, or covering whatever life throws at us, I feel like I spend more time driving than I do at home! And with the New York International Auto Show right around the corner (it’s just two weeks away!) there’s no better time  to highlight two of the cars that fit my “driving mom” lifestyle the most, the Nissan Sentra and Nissan Altima. We’ve also got a giveaway for two tickets to the New York International Auto Show– read on for more about the Sentra and Altima, and details about how to win!

2016_Nissan_Sentra_062016 Nissan Sentra

The 2016 Nissan Sentra continues the brand’s “class above” style, and combines premium design and appearance with a roomy interior, advanced connectivity tools, and safety technology you can trust. The car features such exterior perks as a new front fascia, grille, fenders, hood and signature boomerang-shaped headlights, as well as chrome door handles and chrome window accents and available heated outside mirrors with integrated turn signals. On the interior side of things, the Sentra boasts a brand new style of steering wheel (similar to the Nissan 370Z design), one of the largest interiors in its class (meaning ample legroom and a great trunk capacity– both major perks in my book!) and a beautiful new TFT-type (Thin Film Transistor) LCD flat panel display with higher resolution than previous LCD screens. Finally, as far as safety, the 2016 Nissan Sentra offers some of the best technology available, including Forward Emergency Braking (FEB), Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC), Blind Spot Warning (BSW) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), all of which are available on the Sentra this year for the first time ever.


2016 Nissan Altima

The 2016 Nissan Altima builds on five consecutive years of sales growth with an extensive redesign for this year’s model– including a new design, new driving feel. improved fuel economy, and a wide array of enhanced technology, connectivity, and safety features. The new Altima bears a brand new look that designers call “energetic flow,” with the front and rear sections featuring totally new designs and sheet metal, redesigned headlights, a new lowered muscular front fascia, a new rear fascia and bumper, and a new grille and bumper. The 2016 Nissan Altima a host of safety features like radar-based Blind Spot Warning (BSW), Forward Emergency Braking (FEB), Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), and the class-exclusive Predictive Forward Collision Warning (PFCW).

Both the 2016 Nissan Sentra and the 2016 Nissan Altima will be on display at the New York International Auto Show, which runs from March 25- April 3, 2016, and I am beyond excited to see these two car models there in person! I also hope I’ll see you there– make sure to click the following link and enter the Rafflecopter giveaway through SheBuysCars for your chance to win 2 tickets to the New York International Auto Show and a $150 Gift Card!
