Upon arriving at the baby shower, each guest will receive a cute little pea pod to where wear throughout the event. But one of the pea pods is not like the other. Someone will be a winner when you play the pea in the pod game.
This baby shower game is perfect for those having a Pea in the Pod baby shower theme.
Playing the game:Each guest receives a small pea pod to wear throughout the shower. One guest will discover 'real' peas in her pod, making her the winner!
Game preparation:You'll need:
Small safety pins
3 green fabric balls Cut fabric into 4 by 3 inch strips. Place three green fabric balls (the peas) near the center of one fabric strip and roll the fabric until shaped like a Tootsie Roll. Tie each end with green ribbon. Create the non-winning pods to be the same shape and consistency as the winning pea pod, stuffing with paper towels instead of green fabric peas. Use safety pins to attach a pod to each guest.
Variations:For a baby shower for twins, two pea pods can contain peas so two of your guests become game winners.
Suggested prizes:Gift your winning guest with a treat from Bath & Body Works Sweet Pea line.
Baby shower gift game
Guests will be cracking up when they find out what really went on the night of conception!
The honoree will soon regret she called that pair of baby booties 'so cute and so very, very small.'
Playing the game: As the mother-to-be is opening her gifts, someone writes down everything she says (like, "Oh, that's so cute!" or "Thanks! Just what I need.") Remember not to tell the mom-to-be you're writing down everything she says!
After the gifts are opened, proceed by saying, "the following phrases are what Jane said to Paul the night the baby was conceived." After all the phrases have been read, have guests vote for the funniest one. The person who gave the gift producing the funniest comment wins.
Preparation: You'll need a pencil, paper and a scribe to take notes. Simply write down everything that the mother says as she's unwrapping her gifts. Choosing a scribe with a sense of humor will make this game extra funny!
Suggested prizes: Head to your local Spencer's Gifts (or other party store) to pick up a humorous gag gift

We are not so different when we grow up and become Moms. I think we just decide that appearances of how we look to others as a family, Mother, Daughter, etc...mean more then the latest fashionable purse or accessorie.
Are you one of those people that worries all the time what other people think about you and what you do? I used to be. I made myself crazy trying to be someone I was not. Being different then what people expect is not always the easiest thing but it certainly makes you feel better as an individual to be yourself. There is too much wasted energy in being someone you are not. Learn to love yourself and your gifts that YOU can give even if it is not what is expected of you. Embrace who you really are because you will find a peace inside that allows you to be an even better person.
As the Title of the post suggest, I in fact have a new business. Wahm Addicts is going to have a complete facelift and will be an amazing site that fully supports the Work At Home Mom. Stay tuned for big changes in the next couple of months!

For over 20 years I've not only BEEN an entrepreneur, but also studied hundreds of others who have had amazing success in their lives. Ever body WANTS success. Everyone WANTS to easily attract friends, life partners, businessassociates, customers and others into their lives.
WHY IS IT THEN THAT 'SOME' PEOPLE JUST SEEM TO HAVE IT MADE?
Wouldn't you want to know how to guarantee that everything you touchedquite literally (well, almost anyhow) turned to GOLD?
I have been doing a lot of pondering over the past month and a half or so while I've been out enjoying the fruits of the summer. Tonight...after having some challenging experiences over the weekend,I thought I would share with you the REAL IMPACT that ATTITUDE has on everything in your life.
PLEASE LISTEN TO ME CLEARLY...and READ EVERY WORD of what I am about to share with you. If you do pay attention to this...and pass it along to other people,you will find yourself in the most AMAZING place, a life with great relationships, an incredible booming business, and a lifeabundant.
ATTITUDE is EVERYTHING. Do yourself a favor. Don't shake off this message. Hold on to it. You deserve to receive the lesson.
Attitude literally affects everything and everyone in your life. Your attitude determines exactly where you go and how high you can fly. Your attitude can either make your day...and someone else's ORruin your day and all those around you. PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO YOUR ATTITUDE !!!! A positive attitude is absolutely magnetic. A negative attitude is simply pathetic. Think about how incredible life is and the experiences you have arewhen you are surrounded by individuals with great attitudes and outlooks on life. Think about how a wonderful day can be ruined by the negative energy and attitude from even a single person. Think about what you do for a living in network marketing. Really THINK ABOUT IT for a second. You have the ability to DRAMATICALLY change the course of someone's life forever. THAT is a MEGAresponsibility.
AWARENESS is the first step toward change. If you are unaware, it is impossible for you to change. Once you are aware, you can begin to change. Everyone has good days and bad days. We are all human. Emotions. We all have them. GREATNESS comes to those who seek it and do so with intent. If it is your INTENTION to create greatness in your life, to create abundance, to attract GOODNESS, then you MUST CONTROL YOUR ATTITUDE.
The next time you interact with someone, THINK ABOUT YOUR ATTITUDE !!!!!Are you positive and uplifting? Are you fun to be around? Are you happy? Are you projecting good energy or negative energy?Are you making people feel better or worse? Are you someone that you'd want to be around if you were seeking something positive in your life?These are all great things to think about. I just thought I'd share a few thoughts about the impact on how your ATTITUDE literally affects everything and everyone who "IT" comes in contact with.
Maybe a bit dramatic but really does stress a very important point!

First, his slightly lazy eye, which in time the doctors feel he will out grow, then his speech, enunciating his vowels in longer sentences has been a problem for him, but they expect him to outgrow that also. He will start speech therapy though in Oct. Then his little leg and feet. Poor kid! At least everyone of these problems can be taken care of and I am again very thankful for that!
Big big hug for my baby today!

If you are an energetic person who likes to succeed, who likes to get things done yesterday, you might find it extremely helpful to slow down your pace when learning stress management techniques.
Here's why:Enthusiasm may push you to take on many techniques at once and do them for too long. You run a high risk of burning out and losing interest if you try to do too much too fast.
Furthermore, you are likely to feel guilty for coming up with excuses to avoid exercising at all.You may feel confused when you begin to experience more energy as a result of doing relaxation and stress management exercises. Resist the temptation to pour this extra energy back into your work. Rather, use it for further rest and enjoyment.Sometimes, symptoms of stress persist in spite of regular relaxation and stress reduction. If you are a conscientious person, and have been practicing regularly, this is disheartening.
The following are just a few of the most common reasons why this might be happening to you.Some people are highly suggestible and begin to experience every symptom that they hear about. For example, one very tense policeman joined a relaxation group to overcome his tendency to hyperventilate after periods of high stress. He found himself experiencing all of the physical symptoms described by other group members: migraines, lower back pain, rapid heartbeat, and so forth. These tendencies may be combated by combining thought-stopping or coping statements with progress muscle relaxation.A surprising number of people are attached to their symptoms, which serve a very definite purpose. For example, your headaches may get you out of interpersonal situations you want to avoid, without having to take responsibility for disappointing others. You can discover whether your symptom rescue you from more unpleasant experiences by keeping a log of when you get your symptoms and the activities (or would-be activities) that surround them. If you suspect that your symptoms provide you "secondary gain" in this manner, you may want to consider getting assertiveness training. It should provide you with the incentive and the tools to be more direct in saying no.
Your symptoms of tension may be a signal that you are not dealing effectively with something in your life and that you are covering up your feelings. For example, you may be angry with your family but not sharing this fact with them. You might be putting off talking about a particular conflict because you don't see any way of improving matters. A nurse was visited every other weekend by a very spoiled stepdaughter. She had agreed to the arrangement when she married and now felt trapped by it. Within three years, the visits invariably produced a migraine headache. To counteract this symptom, she finally negotiated a new contract with her husband to spend visiting days on her own doing what she liked, while he "babysat."The people around you are apt to be aware that you are withholding stressful feelings and that something is wrong. Nevertheless, they can't read your mind and are unlikely to come to your rescue. You know best what it is you need. Letting others know your feelings and what you want opens the way to engaging them in helping you make a change.
Your symptoms may be a way of getting taken care of when you feel that you can't directly ask for help or consideration. If you feel tired and have a backache, someone else may have to do the cooking and cleaning and keeping the house quiet. Ask yourself when your symptoms first began. What was going on in your life that might have contributed to them?
One elderly woman who had suffered from periodic colitis since childhood recalled that her abdominal cramps began when her younger twin brothers were born. She remembered that the only time her busy mother ever held her and rocked her was when she had the symptoms. She noted that she tended to get colitis only when her husband left her alone in the evenings.It is possible that you have developed the symptoms of an important person in your life as part of your identification with them. For example, you may not only have learned to be hard-working and successful from your father, but also to deal with stress in a similar manner. Carrying your tension in your stomach, you may come to the point of getting an ulcer just like your father.
Since characteristic ways of responding to stress are generally learned, ask yourself who in your family shares your same symptoms. It's often easier to learn how they are not dealing effectively with the stress in their lives than to see it in yourself. The next step is to observe and see if the same is true for you.If you continue to have difficulty reducing stress in your life, consider consulting a professional. You may be interested in stress management groups that are becoming more commonly available. Your medical doctor or health plan is a good place to start.

Intimacy is More than Sex
By: Beverly Mahone
Is there a difference between love-making and making love? Yes, there IS a difference. Love-making is a physical act between two people. Making love, on the other hand, goes much deeper into the spiritual connection between the couple.It’s the same with comparing sex and intimacy. Intimacy is more than sex or making love. It's more of a combination of the physical AND emotional connection you feel with your partner. Intimacy involves a soul connection between two people.While instant chemistry can be exciting and thrilling, the chemistry that makes marriages work usually grows over time. This special chemistry between two people involves excellent communication and self sacrifice more than physical attraction. It takes trust, patience, and willingness to talk and to listen.With greater intimacy, married couples tend to have a more satisfying and fulfilling romantic life. They learn how to do the things that please each other. They learn how to communicate. Being able to express what you want is important and genuinely listening to your spouse are key factors in building an intimate romance. So how can you grow in intimacy with your mate? Here are some tips to consider:Determine what you really need out of the relationship: Is the feeling of togetherness more important than financial stability? Or must the bills be paid on time even if your spouse doesn’t have much time for you? Do you need to talk things out no matter how long it takes? Or can you just let some things go for the sake of harmony and peace in the relationship?Determine what your spouse really needs: At first your mate may be reluctant to share what he or she needs. It may be because your partner doesn’t know how or is afraid of your reaction. If you set a relaxing mood and environment, this is one way you could encourage your partner to open up and share with you. Whatever you do, don’t nag and keep pressing to find out what’s going on with your partner because that could result in resentment and shutting you out.Make an effort to change your behavior everyday: If your partner needs more space, it is important that you respect that. If they need more of your time, tune out any distractions and pay attention to your spouse. Tune into your mate more and tune out other distractions like the TV, phone, computer, radio, etc. Make it a point to give your spouse some quality uninterrupted time per day.Finally, take care of yourself: If you are upset, you won’t be a fun person to be around. Make sure that you have your own “me” time everyday where you can pray, meditate, and take care of your personal needs. Whether it’s writing in a journal, reading a good book, going to the spa or just doing nothing at all, give yourself some space so when you come back together, you’ll appreciate each other even more.

This is a cozy place, so pull up a chair, turn down the lights, put the kids to bed, and socialize! Posts are open to one and all. I would love to see some great topics get started here. Feel free to share your own experiences, vent, frustrations, happiness, the sky's the limit!
First topic. What is the most frustrating experience you have come across in starting your own business and how did you solve it, if you did!
