Wordless Wednesday- They are totally related! : )

Well, almost wordless:

Distracted Mommy Spells DISASTER in my house, what about yours?

P.S. Note, this is the same cupboard just a couple of years later. You'd think I would have learned to lock it by now. : )

This is SO going on my next sewing project list!

I can just imagine my little cutie in these this summer! I can't wait to make them! It's super easy too!

Get the tutorial for it here! I love her website! It's where I go for all my crafting ideas when I feel in the mood!

P.S. I guess I'm in an " ! " right now. lol.

When I'm able to get the sewing machine back out again, I will definitely post a picture of DD's new jeans! : )

What's your secret to "Doing it All"?

I've always wondered this! Some Moms are so much more put together than others. If you feel like you are one of these "put together moms" would you be so kind to share your secrets with the rest of us? I only have 2 kiddos right now but plan on having more in the future. How do you stay on top of things, blog, get your goals accomplished, etc?

Please enlighten us! : )

Featured Follower: "Bows that Grow" and a GIVEAWAY!!!

Our First Ever Featured Follower is:

Meagan with Bows that Grow. (a.k.a The Fergi Fam)

Tell us a little bit about yourself...

Do you have any children?

Well, I have been married for five years now and I am a SAHM of three adorable kids (two boys + one girl).

What are some things that you love to do?

I love to organize! You would never know it by the looks of my house but if I could have all the money in the world I'd have all sorts of shelves, containers, and sorters.

I LOVE to make lists, even if they don't always get accomplished. I made a notebook specifically for my lists.

What are some things that you hate?

I hate taking baths. If for some reason I'm in the mood to take a bath, I have to clean the tub, shower, bathe, and shower after. I find it gross to sit in your own filth.

I hate watching new movies because I'm afraid of what's going to be in them. I hate anything scary, or dirty, and I hate cussing. So I stick to the stuff I know and that's mainly kid movies! :)

What are three things you are really good at?

Okay, off the top of my head...singing. I used to sing in a barbershop quartet. I miss it soooo much! I'm also a licensed cosmetologist and I make AWESOME homemade bread.

What made you think of starting Bows that Grow?

Well, one day I tried a headband on my baby girl and it did not fit her anymore. I had only bought the headband a couple of weeks before that. I decided that there should be something that grows with your child and when I didn't find it, I decided to make it myself : )

How do "Bows that Grow" work?

All of my bows connect together so you can get the size and look you are going for. You can Mix-and-Match them to coordinate with the outfit your little one is wearing as well. Then these bows can connect to my headbands, clippies, barrettes, or even hats. The possibilities are endless and you aren't left with a bow that can't be worn anymore because they "outgrew" it.

Well, thank you Meagan for letting me feature you and for becoming a follower of Ozark Mama Reviews!

Dear Neglected Blog...

You seem to have been put on the back burner this year. Instead, I have been playing "house" and trying to be a good girl and not be distracted by the computer. Well, I'm at my whits end with the never-ending clutter that slaps me in the face each morning, that makes me wonder why it takes me all day to clean one room, and I am back now, to tend to MY needs, lol, to connect with the outside world of Mommies and mostly to procrastinate the mundane tasks I must do everyday. Oh how I look forward to naptime and bedtime each day (although, the little ones must never grow up : )

So, here it is: I'm Officially BACK : )

and with that being said:

Now that the blizzards are over (crosses fingers) it looks like my blog could use some Spring Cleaning (thanks to the groundhog for not seeing his shadow). See? I need to do my chores still. Just in the blogging world : )

Things to look forward to:

Posting more often and I'm going to be changing things up a bit. This is my first public blog and things aren't working the way I want them to with me posting so:

I'm planning on posting only 3 times a week. I will most likely be posting on:

Mindful Mondays: Deals of the Week, Fun things going on in the Ozarks that week, Product Reviews, and Meal Planner Monday too!

Wacky Wednesdays: I will still be writing parenting tips or opening up the blog to a therapy session for Moms, and anything else I want to include to give the blog personality, such as craft projects, blogging tips, Wordless Wednesday pictures, etc.


Featured Friday: Yes, finally, I will be having a blog follower featured and adding giveaways once in a while as well. If I don't have a feature lined up for the week I will be going to one of your guys blogs and picking an article to link to to feature (with your permission of course...but it's free advertising so I'm sure you wouldn't mind ; )

So, that's all. Thanks for following in my learning process as I get this blog defrosted and for sticking with me even through my "ice" storm.

P.S. Make sure to check Back Friday to get this blog rolling full steam ahead with a Featured Blogger and a Giveaway to top it off : )

Twitter Hop Thursday

Welcome! Follow me @ozarkmamareview and I will follow you back!

If you want to follow me with GFC (right hand side of blog), I will also follow you back as well!
