(In)courage Review and 50 Dollar Giftcard G1veaway (01/06) #indeals

I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas and holiday season! I'm enjoying the break from teaching and school (although I am preparing for some oral exams, so there's always more work to do!).

I was wishing this year for a way to make Christmas a little more meaningful for my family. I didn't want it to just be about gifts and getting presents, but also about giving, helping others, and to get back to the religious core of the holiday. That's why I was so excited to receive the Advent Tabletop Devotion Calendar from (In)courage from the Love Came Down Collection.

Would you like to WIN $50 to (in)courage plus FREE SHIPPING? Read on for my review and more details.

Natural Insect Repellant from Tropical Traditions

Biting bugs really bug me. I don't like it when they bite me or my babies, but I have a really hard time using insect repellants that are full of harmful, toxic chemicals. Even if I just apply these "regular" repellants to myself, I worry that they may be transferred to my children.

Mosquitoes especially were a big problem for my family last summer when my daughter was under six months old. There was no way I was going to douse either of us with DEET--and so we stayed inside a lot. Chasing fireflies with my toddler also became a challenge because when the fireflies are out, so are the mosquitoes. And how can I trust a label that says I need to wash the product off as soon as I get inside? That is not something I want to use.

So I have been searching high and low for a safe and natural alternative to the typical insect repellants out there. I was so happy to come across the Organic Insect Repellant and Moisturizer from Tropical Traditions. I knew immediately that this was a product I wanted to feature on my blog to share with all of you.

The first thing that I noticed about the Organic Insect Repellant is

Target Employees Harass Breastfeeding Mother: Nurse-in Scheduled

More ignorance regarding breastfeeding! Recently, Michelle Hickman was Christmas shopping in a Target store when she needed to nurse her infant. She moved to a secluded location near the dressing rooms and proceeded to nurse with the cover of a blanket. While no other shoppers even noticed that she was nursing her baby there, two Target employees repeatedly asked her to move and made threatening statements about being ticketed for indecent exposure. Other employees looked on and made disapproving gestures about her actions.

A call to Target headquarters fared no better and she was told by the customer service representative that Target was a family friendly place. Apparently they do not understand that nursing IS one of the most family-friendly practices around, with many benefits to mother, baby, and society. (Some of which include protection from illnesses, protection from diseases such as breast cancer, protection from post-partum depression, and a high correlation with higher IQ levels in children.)

In response to Target's failure to support breastfeeding, Hickman has organized a nurse-in to take place at Target locations across the country on Wednsday, December 28 at 10am. If you are interested in joining in and supporting the cause, you can learn more about the event from the Facebook Group here.

WW: Bellagio's New Songs {Linky}

We are in Las Vegas for Christmas! No, not because we love to party (in fact, we don't gamble or drink alcohol ever), but because this is where my husband's family lives. It's rare for us to go to The Strip, but we made a special trip today to see the Bellagio's new fountain shows with new songs. We also saw the flower gardens inside the Bellagio. It was a fun evening out with the family (kids stayed home with grandma). The songs from tonight were all Christmas music. Out of the four fountain sows we saw, one was Sleigh Ride and one was The Hallelujah Chorus from The Messiah. (The juxtaposition of the sin of Vegas with the music about praising Jesus was hard for my mind to handle!)
