Winner I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days. My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But

Yochi Yochi Giveaway!!! -CLOSED-

Winner I haven't yet tried Yochi Yochi shoes, but they look adorable! Their website states: " Yochi Yochi is proud to introduce the latest trend in Japan here on American soil! Yochi Yochi shoes are made with a small squeaking diaphram in the heel of each shoe which causes a small squeak when your child takes a step. The noise is fun, but we think it goes beyond that. With the squeaking sound in every step, you can find comfort in the fact that your stealthy child will have a hard time getting away from your side without knowing. In addition to safety, many doctors have suggested that when your child can audibly recognize their footsteps, the sounds can reinforce the natural rhythm of walking and actually help train them to walk." With 2 cute styles to choose from, "Prince Kairu" (little frogs) for boys, and "Princess Sakura" (pandas) for girls, your little little ones will be stylish and ready to walk! Yochi Yochi is giving one pair of s

DIY Freezer Pie Crust

Veronica recently wrote about making a Pecan Pie .  I love homemade pie, but like a lot of people, I'm easily intimidated by the idea of making the dough, and then the filling, and then baking it all.  For some reason it feels like a huge chore.  So the other day I decided to finally tackle a chore I've wanted to do for a long time.  I did a double batch of my favorite pie crust recipe, which gave me eight 9" pie rounds of dough. I know a lot of people out there prefer to just buy it, which is a great idea if you have coupons and a sale to make it cheap, but if you're into homemade, or want it NOW, having your own in the freezer is a dream.  It's a dream that I've finally achieved.  With the assignment to bring pie to our family gathering, I was thrilled to just open the freezer, and have it ready to go. (I even happened to have frozen pie filling in there waiting for me!)  I know some people like to roll it out all the way before freezing, and
