GIVEAWAY: Boba Baby Carrier! (US) -CLOSED-

Review by Veronica


I have been excited for WEEKS about the Boba Baby Carrier.  My family and I are going to Spain soon, and I wanted something that would allow me to carry my one year old on my back during our travels and something that would allow him to snuggle up to me or his dad on the plane and/or train. In Boba, I found a company that has what I was looking for.

My husband with our baby boy in our Boba Baby Carrier
As far as the Company itself:
1.  The Organics Collection  (Boulder Baby) carrier is made in Boulder, Colorado. (made in the U.S.A., baby).  The classic collection is made overseas, in fair working conditions of course.  The Company regularly visits the facility as well.
2.  They are working towards becoming a GREEN company. (click the link to find out all that they are doing!)
3.  They recently launched their classic collection.  Their organic cotton collection was their first collection.
4.  They have instructional videos on anything Boba related - I love instructional videos on things like this.
5.  They understand the need that a child has to feel close to his/her parent. The Boba carrier can help foster the bond that is natural between mother and child. 

Here are some of the elements that I love about the carrier itself.
1.  The wonderful colors and fabrics.
2.  The carriers have adjustable footstraps which help keep legs/knees in proper form.
3.  As mentioned above, they use organic cotton (which comes from Texas, my home state).
4.  The Boba Carrier has a sleep hood!  

The quality is amazing.  The feel of it on your back is great!  And I love that it gives me an opportunity to hold my baby boy close. He might end up a mama's boy after all ;-).

Currently, they offer the Boba Classic for $100 or the Boba Organic for $128 each in a variety of colors.

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."

The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!

What to do with Apricots: Homemade Fruit Leather

If you have access to an apricot tree I highly suggest making fruit leather.  This was my first time attempting any kind of dried fruit and it turned out heavenly!
Plus my house smelled great all day!!  And if you read a recent post you can see why that would be

Apricot Fruit Leather

4 cups chopped apricots
lemon juice
1/2 c water

Add apricots and a 1/2 c of water to a saucepan on low heat.
Cover, stirring occasionally for 10 minutes.
Add sugar 1 T at a time till it tastes good
Add lemon juice 1 tsp at a time to taste
Add cinnamon to taste
Add nutmeg to taste - I did a lot of tastin'!! :)
Simmer for 5 minutes on low heat until thickened a bit

In batches add mixture to a blender
Blend until smooooooooth
Prepare baking sheet: line with microwaveable safe plastic wrap
Add mixture to sheet about 1/4 inch thick

MAKE SURE the plastic wrap doesn't fold over mixture and that it doesn't touch your oven
Bake at 140 degrees for 8 to 12 hours - fruit leathe…

Freezer Homemade Fries & Sauce

I LOVE fries!  I would make them more but it seems like a hassle when I'm trying to get dinner ready, kids are screaming, and I'm trying to dodge cheerios on the floor.

Then along came freezer fries and my life is far richer (lol)....not the ones you buy at the store that kinda look potato-like, but the real things.  They are also MUCH cheaper.   So instead of letting your potatoes sit around, and hoping that you remember to use them, you can make fries....yum....

To see my post on what to do with a 10lb. bag of potatoes go to The Coupon Project.

First wash and scrub potatoes ( I don't peel because I think it's miserable work)
Cut into 1/2 inch fries
Toss with oil (I usually use Canola)
Add salt and a little sugar (makes them crispy)

Place them on a baking sheets and bake at 475 for 20 minutes (they will only be half cooked)
After baking, let them cool on paper or dish towels Put in freezer on sheet (I have a small freezer so I used pie tins) Let them freeze solid (ab…
