I Heart My Palm Pre Plus….

And this is the last time you’ll hear me talk about my love for my new friend!  I’ve spent over a month now with the Palm Pre Plus and I’m just amazed at the multitude of features this smartphone offers.  Whether I need to jump on Facebook and Twitter, keep track of emails and text messages or take a photo or video, the Palm Pre Plus has me covered in every department.

As with any electronic device, there are a few down falls.  The battery life on the Palm Pre Plus is less than desirable and I’m still trying to get used to this as I don’t always remember to charge my phone at night.  I can only imagine that this is due to the variety of features the phone performs and I notice when I use Slacker radio on my Palm Pre Plus it tends to drain my battery quickly.  However, I quickly forgive my new little friend, because not every one can be the “little engine that could”!

Juggling every day life can be a difficult task and a good smartphone can certainly help you along the way. The Palm Pre Plus will help you stay organized, stay connected and stay on track!  To purchase your very own Palm Pre Plus, visit a Verizon Wireless near you!  A little birdy recently told me that you can pick one up for just $29.95 with a 2 year contract (may be location specific)!

Want to get a feel for the Palm Pre Plus?  Check out the Palm Pre Plus Simulator, where you can play with the phone before making a decision to own one! 

Disclaimer: Verizon Wireless provided me with a Palm Pre Plus and one month service to facilitate my review.  My thoughts and opinions remain my own!

Exercise and Chocolate Bars

Jillian Michaels Kicked my A** today for nearly 20 minutes!

I felt as if my abs, arms and legs had just conquered the world.

I now understand the victory of the great conquistadors who came before me.

I have lived up to my expectations.

In just 20 minutes.

In front of my TV.

Using cans of beans as weights.

My great victory deserved a medal or reward of some kind.

So I ate an entire chocolate bar.

That’s all.

ShooShoos Review & Giveaway

Our Lil’ Pea has been growing, growing, growing and her feet have kept up with the progress!  We have had to say goodbye to a few of our favorite shoes companies because they no longer make shoes big enough for her growing, toddler feet.  She’s still small and fragile and still needs the soft flexibility of an infant/toddler shoe.  You can imagine my disappointment when I tried to find her cute shoes in a large enough size offering all of the features we were used to, and I was met by a dead end.  That is until I stumbled upon ShooShoos!

About ShooShoos
ShooShoos offers flexible soft leather infant and toddler shoes, designed for both boys and girls up to age 2 1/2 or size 8!  ShooShoo’s are comprised of a leather that is 100% safe and non-toxic, so if  little ones decide they need to chew on something for awhile, mom and dad can rest assured that baby will not be harmed by their new chew toy!  Each shoe features an elasticized ankle to grow with busy toddlers, non-slip soles and soft leather straps with easy to close velcro.

ShoosShoos Spring/Summer Line
ShooShoos has just recently introduced their new spring/summer line, offering new styles for both boys and girls!  The girls Smiley Light summer sandals offer the great features that ShooShoos is known for with a new sandal design to keep little ones feet nice and cool on those warm summer days.  Boys have plenty of new designs to choose from like the Brown Smiley Sandal in dark chocolate or the Camel Smiley Sandal in cool beige, perfect for spring.

Our Experience

We were thrilled to receive ShooShoos Pink Smiley/Butterly Shoes for our review!  Lil’ Pea is not shy about the fact that she loves shoes and went right to work, putting them on her feet, the moment they arrived.  The soft, flexible leather allowed her to quickly get them on her feet and the velcro closure means she doesn’t need moms help.  A big confident booster for her!  She is a solid size 8 and I would say their sizing is dead on.  Her shoes fit nice and comfortably, however there is not a whole lot of room for growth.  If your looking for some room to grow, I would suggest going up a size.  But for now, they fit perfectly and she’ll get some great wear out of these given that her foot doesn’t grow for at least another month…fingers crossed!

The flexible rubber soles allow Lil’ Pea to run and jump with ease and I know I’m not going to get any complaints about her feet having owies.  The flexible rubber soles also mean that she’s not going to trip over her own feet, which we’ve seen happen with shoes that are stiff.  Any mom would be glad to have less head bonks, right?  To top it off, the Pink Smiley/Butterly sandals are simply “Deal”ectble in more ways than one!  The pink color matches just about everything, the butterflies add just enough flair and the shape of the shoes makes her foot look just the size that they are…not too big and not too small!  We love, love, love our ShooShoos!
