Get a Free Sample of Skin MD!

**Scroll down until you see “Get your sample.”
It has been a dry winter in our house.  My hands are thirsty for cream, morning, noon, and night.  I’ve tried the thick creams, the healing creams, the ointments . . . still dry.  Then I got a sample of Skin MD to try.  As soon as I put it on, my hands felt instantly better and were so soft and smooth.  I couldn’t believe it.  Now, let me say that this was not a one time fixes all solution, but nothing else had gotten me off to such a good start.  I’ve been using it ever since.
The good news is that they’re offering free samples!  Just click the “Get your free sample” picture above or click here.  **You’ll just need to scroll down until you see “Get your sample.”  Or to purchase your own, because you really are going to love it, go to Skin MD.  (There’s even one with SPF 15!)
“Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion is formulated to be far more effective than traditional moisturizing lotions or protective creams. It utilizes more than 90% natural ingredients and 100% food – grade ingredients that are on the FDA’s “most safe” list.”

America’s Most Deserving Mom- Win a trip to Florida!

emerald-coast-americas-deserving-mom2

Florida’s Emerald Coast Issues A Challenge to Find
‘America’s Most Deserving Mom’

DESTIN • FORT WALTON BEACH • OKALOOSA ISLAND, Fla. –  The search has launched to find ‘America’s Most Deserving Mom’ and Florida’s Emerald Coast challenges husbands, sons and daughters from every corner of the country to nominate their someone special for the title and official grand prize -- a 2011 Buick Enclave, one-week stay for six in a luxurious Destin beach house courtesy of Southern Resorts, round-trip airfare and $1,000 spending money (www.facebook.com/floridasemeraldcoast).
      From comedic to heartfelt, and tear-jerking to knee-slapping, entrants must create a video telling the world in one minute or less why their mom or wife warrants the honor and grand prize. All videos can be submitted to the Emerald Coast Facebook page – www.facebook.com/floridasemeraldcoast – until Apr. 24; once uploaded, voting begins and entrants are encouraged to share the video with family and friends to accumulate votes – one vote per day, per user.
      Out of 82.8 million mothers in the United States, one grand-prize winner will be revealed on May 16. Utilizing the $1.56 million BP grant to fund the marketing campaign, Florida’s Emerald Coast will end the promotion on Mother’s Day, May 8, before announcing ‘America’s Most Deserving Mom’ one week later. The top 10 videos, as voted on by the general population, will go to a committee on Mother’s Day, where the winning video will be selected.
      For more information on The Emerald Coast’s Search for America’s Most Deserving Mom, visit www.facebook.com/floridasemeraldcoast or call the Emerald Coast Convention & Visitors Bureau at 800.322.3319 or 850.651.7131.

My FAVORITE Planner from Chaos Simplified

chaos simplified 2011
This planner is so great and it actually helps keep me organized.  That’s saying a lot.  I started the year with another planner that I had been given and I contacted Corri to tell her that I could no longer use anything but this one! 
planner 2011
My favorite feature is that you can see the month and week at a glance at the same time.  This is possible because of a unique half page format that is used for the weeks.  The little notes on the side for “Things to do” and “Phone calls to make” help me make a list to check off for the week.  Then every day I can take a couple of things from the lists and put them as “Today’s priority.”  There’s even room for a supper plan. 
planner 3
This year they added a pocket at the beginning of each month which I’ve already started using and there are some great pages to start off each month with goals, plans, important dates, etc.
It’s available for $38.95 plus shipping.  It is worth every penny.   75 cents a week to stay organized and sane?  Yes, that’s a good deal.  :)

Head on over to http://www.chaossimplified.com/ and get your very own!
