When We Last Spoke #Bookreview #Giveaway #WhenWeLastSpoke #FlyBy

I just finished a very enjoyable book by “Marci Henna” entitled When We Last Spoke. It weaves back memories of 2 orphaned girls and the life they spent with their Grandpa and Grandma. She has a way of touching your heart to bring back a lot of memories that were nice to remember after so many years have gone by. She did a wonderful job of combining the past and bringing it into the world we are at now. A definite “ Must Read.” This is a softcover with 232 pages. Retail price: $11.38

Here's a little bit about this book.

About When We Last Spoke (from the back cover):
"Humor, heartbreak, and triumph are served with whipped cream and lots of local nuts in this heartwarming tale of family, friendship, and forgiveness in Fireside, Texas.

Meet Juliet Cranbourne, local radio personality and owner of a whimsical kitchen gadget store, and her sister Evangeline, a fruit tree geneticist who works for Oregon State University.

When a rift due to their orphaned past affects their sisterhood, Juliet convinces Evangeline to come home for Christmas and choose headstones to honor grandparents Walt (a tenderhearted, good looking rancher) and Ruby (a blue-ribbon fiddler, fabulous cook, and expert in the art of making family feel loved). As they cruise through Fireside in Ruby's

Thunderbird, Juliet hopes that healing memories will somehow smooth rough roads ahead.

Does the tremendous love that marked Walt and Ruby's lives still have the power to renew their sisterhood and help them find their place in the world?"

Buckle up your child faster with Lulakidsbrand #review #giveaway

I don't know about you but we always have problem with our kids buckle up themselves, especially my daughter. It takes her forever, and she whines the whole time. The problem is, she has to dig for the buckle and it just keeps moving away or flop once she push it in. Sometimes it took her 5 minutes before we can leave. I would like to see her help herself but sometimes she whine so much so we have to get out to help her buckle up. I am very pregnant right now, reaching over to try to buckle her is not easy as well. This causing a lot of frustration in between us, especially when we are in hurry.

One day, I saw an ads on Facebook about They have a perfect product to solve this problem, Lulabloc. It is a seat buckle holder that holds it up and protecting it from escaping when we try to buckle.

The installing is super easy. I just slided LulaBloc over the buckle and push down until it secure. Now my buckle stays up. This morning, my daughter didn't waste time at all. She buckled herself in right away. I am super happy with it.

On top of the LulaBloc, we received. LulaKidsbrand sent us a LulaClips as well. Another great product that helps me to put my sleeping baby into the car seat. If I am by myself, it is greatly difficult to try to hold my sleeping baby in one hand and use the other hand pushing the straps away so that I can put my baby into her car seat. I don't want to move my baby too much as I want her to stay sleeping. Well, it is not always easy and sometimes she woke up.

LulaClips is a solution. There are magnetic inside these clips. You just have to pin the little pink hands to the seat and simply clip the metal buckles to them. The straps and buckles will be out of the way. This makes the loading and unloading process smoothly. This product works with stroller as well.

For these great products, LulaBloc is only $10 for 2 PK, and if you would like 4 PK, it is only $18. For LulaClips, it is only $12.95 per set. There are 2 choices of color to choose from, blue and pink. If you get 2 sets, it will be even cheaper, $20 for both. They also offer a free shipping on order over $30. These are really great products that I really recommend.

If you would like to try your luck, Lullakids brand is giving one of my readers a LulaBloc and LulaClips. This giveaway open to Canada and USA who is over the age of 18 and where permitted by local laws to enter and win giveaways. This giveaway is sponsored by Lulakids brand. Please ensure that you read the full terms and conditions found at the bottom of the entry form.
