please take heart

heart defects are no small matter. and for the tiniest among us, they mean even more.
  • Congenital heart defects are America’s and every country’s #1 birth defect. Nearly one of every 100 babies is born with a CHD.
  • Congenital heart defects are the #1 cause of birth defect related deaths.
  • Congenital heart defects are the leading cause of all infant deaths in the United States.
  • Each year approximately 40,000 babies are born in the United States with a congenital heart defect. thousands of them will not reach their first birthday and thousands more die before they reach adulthood.
  • Each year over 1,000,000 babies are born worldwide with a congenital heart defect. 100,000 of them will not live to see their first birthday and thousands more die before they reach adulthood.
scary stuff. but there is hope. in the last decade death rates for congenital heart defects have declined by almost 30% due to advances made through research. that's one huge step. continue the walk by spreading awareness. '3 boys 1 hubby what's next' is hosting a giveaway to do just that. a little bit goes a long way.

get fit, get fixin'

fixr is currently hosting a Giveaway for a 'Free Wii, Wii Fit Plus and More'. although ending soon, i thought i'd give entering it a stab.

i'm not going to lie, when the wii came out i wanted to jump on the bandwagon and buy one. but i could never justify the price. i've had a go on other people's systems and it only made me want one more. the fitness aspect has made me even more interested. nothing beats yoga for toning things up, not to mention how much fun the requisite outfits would be...still, seems like i'd be splurging on an expensive toy if i actually just purchased one for myself. now winning one would be another wondrous thing entirely.

please don't hesitate to check out the rest of their site. fixr lives up to their motto "things done, money saved." if you have a home improvement project that needs doing, all you need to do is describe it and they'll help you with the rest- which means finding qualified workers in your area along with estimates. then all that's left for you is to chose what's most convenient. and did i mention that it's all free?

so why are you still sitting around? don't you have a bathroom or garage door that needs fixing?

salute xx

this is an incredible opportunity, something you definitely don't see every day...

a giveaway for a brand new burberry scarf! a must-have accessory. be the envy of all your friends.

what are you doing still reading this? get over there and enter your comments!


feeling frosty

with a huge snow storm hitting much of the east coast it's hard to think about spring.

these little blooms however provide the perfect pick-me-up. like much of the 'wearable' jewelry line, they're dainty and delicate.

they also wouldn't stand a fighting chance out there.

the way to a man's heart

ladies might be looking for something sweet to do for their man this valentine's day. cooking a romantic meal at home is always impressive.

want some advice? stick to dishes that wind up in the oven. they can be prepped ahead of time and require no work while actually baking, allowing your attention to be focused elsewhere.

need some cookware before you get started? then this giveaway's for you.

buon appetito xx

i heart you

just a friendly reminder that valentine's day is less than two weeks away.

there are countless ways to say 'i love you' to your special someone. for many, words are enough. others take the less subtle approach.

confessions of a lingerie addict knows all about such a method...she confesses to a "naughty knickers habit," and as she proclaims, "there's no 12-step program for this."

at the moment she is hosting a very appropriate valentine's day giveaway for 'hanky panky' lingerie. celebrities swear by them for their comfort and fit, so they might very well be the sexiest practical option out there for your sweetheart this year.
