Review of Dad's Bible

I was given this book to review by booksneeze and I really wasn't sure how I was going to be able to review a bible.  Not that all bibles are the same, but, well, they are at least mostly the same.  The versions differ, the commentary or notes inside differ, the covers differ, but the message is essential the same. I found this bible to be beautiful though. It is one that I am proud to give my husband.  Below is my review of it.

This bible is an incredible bible for fathers! The New Century Version isn't one I'm familiar with, but it is easy to read, and similar to the NIV in many ways. This bible has many notes, some called character notes, some insights, as well as bios on dads in the bible. There is also a set of notes called Walking in Authority. In the beginning of every chapter there is a small section about the chapter, which I find nice for reference. The pages are thin, but not too thin, and they are beautiful, I must say. They have a brownish tint around the edges, as if they are a scroll. It has a beautiful cover and binding. I appreciate that it has a topical index and a small space for taking notes in the back. I just can't wait to give it to my husband for father's day!

Playtex Bra Makeover

Playtex is offering a Bra Makeover to Moms! Did you know that seven out of ten women are wearing the wrong size bra? I think I am most of the time! Part of the problem is it seems like my size keeps changing, but that's news for another post! Playtex recently launched this site, a site where women are able to apply for a bra makeover, or nominate a friend! What an opportunity! If chosen, the winner will be flown to New York and receive a bra makeover with Alison Deyette, who has been featured on Millionaire Matchmaker(I love that show!) and Ten Years Younger.  In addition, the 10 winners will star in their own webisode, in which the candidate will receive a fitting with Deyette and receive perfect Playtex products!  A new webisode will premier on their site every two weeks! I know for me it gives me confidence to go and get a bra fitting, because then I know I am wearing the right size and can be comfortable and confident!  The last day to apply is Friday May, 21st so hurry!
By posting this information, I am entered into a contest to win a free bra from Playtex. I did not receive any compensation for this post and thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

Say Cheese!

I recieved a BZZ Campaign from BzzAgent for President Cheese. It contained one coupon for free cheese, as well as several coupons for money off future purchases. I used the free coupon to buy Feta cheese for my honey, because it is one of his favorites.  It was a nice treat for him, because its not something I normally purchase. I am not a big fan of the softer cheeses, such as Brie, but I haven't really given them much of a chance. The next time I go to someones house or to a party though, you might just find me bringing cheese and crackers! (Or cheese and Greek olives?)
