The author, Josia, set up a project for herself and I love it!
Project: Be Awesome [to me] seems like a recipe for loving yourself, or helping you to get there.
The quotes and posts are amazing and self inspiring.
There are 7 rules to this project and I love them. I wish more people took stock in themselves, myself included.
As I read more of the blog, I could see how much Josia has been through in her life and how much she values this project. I love the sharing of she and her husbands love story and how candid they are are.
Back to the Project though...
One item I know I am guilty of, and many I know are, is putting yourself down. This is a no-no for the project. Another item which actually counteracts the previous is Embrace you. How crazy is that, to actually love yourself. Do we really love ourselves, or do we believe what people tell us..
The last thing I will touch on is Spread good vibes at least once a day. Not only is this great for someone else, but good for your soul. I honestly believe that.
The Author's formula is: Attitude, Give, Love yourself, Belief, karma.
I like her formula!
Evolution Parenting is a plethora of wonderful tidbits. Please check out this amazing blog and check out her project and get busy on loving YOU !!!

Do you have a Trampoline arena near you? This is my first time here. I have to say, it's tons of fun.
My 2 older boys are really enjoying themselves.
My youngest loved the but once he got here, he melted down. :(
They block off the corners for the younger ones so no one gets trampled.
They even have weekday exercise classes.
I wish Cj was having a better time because it was awesome to jump!

Cheerios® Celebrates 10-Year Anniversary of its Spoonfuls of Stories®Program by Providing Six Million Children’s Books Inside Boxes
MINNEAPOLIS (March 20, 2012) – Today,Cheerios®, alongside actress and mom Jennie Garth, will launch the first in a series of “Breakfast & A Book” reading events to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of its Spoonfuls of Stories® program, which will once again provide more than six million bilingual children’s books free inside specially-marked cereal boxes, while supplies last.
For the second consecutive year, Garth will lead a special book reading for Los Angeles-area children and encourage donations to First Book, a national nonprofit that, like Cheerios, recognizes that access to books is one barrier to literacy development. This year, to help address this issue and commemorate its 10-year milestone, Cheerios will give 5,000 children’s books to10 First Book local volunteer chapters nationwide and make a $300,000 donation to the organization.
Over the next few weeks, VIPs, including past Spoonfuls of Stories authors, will follow Garth’s lead and hold similar readings in their hometowns, including Washington, D.C., Charlotte, Philadelphia, Houston, San Antonio and Seattle. Each event will offer attending and area residents the opportunity to support Cheerios’ quest to get books into kids’ hands by making a donation to First Book via their mobile phones.* Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing will match each donation made via text (up to 50,000 books).
“For the past 10 years, Spoonfuls of Stories has enabled Cheerios to nourish young minds and bodies,” said Meredith Tutterow, associate director, Cheerios. “When children across the country open our cereal boxes and discover a new book inside, it is our hope that they will also discover a limitless love of reading that will allow them to grow and succeed for years to come.”
As a mother of three, Garth understands the importance of fostering a child’s love of reading at a young age. “Parents play a key role in helping their children become readers, which is why reading is a daily ritual in my family,” she said. “As a mother and advocate for childhood literacy, I am proud to once again support the Cheerios Spoonfuls of Stories program, which has helped young children cultivate an interest in reading simply by providing access to books.”
This year’s in-pack book offerings, all of which are from award-winning authors, appropriate for children ages three to eight and from Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing, are:
· Peeny Butter Fudge, by Toni and Slade Morrison and illustrated by Joe Cepeda
· Mostly Monsterly, by Tammi Sauer and illustrated by Scott Magoon
· Noodle & Lou, by Elizabeth Garton Scanlon and illustrated by Arthur Howard
· If I Were a Jungle Animal, by Amanda Ellery and illustrated by Tom Ellery
· Hello Baby, by Mem Fox and illustrated by Steve Jenkins
· Can I Just Take a Nap?, by Ron Rauss and illustrated by Rob Shepperson
Over the past 10 years, Cheerios has distributed more than 60 million children’s books inside boxes and donated $3.8 million to First Book to help ensure children from low-income families have age-appropriate books at home.
To learn more about Spoonfuls of Stories, the “Breakfast & A Book” events and this year’s in-pack books, or to donate to First Book, go to www.spoonfulsofstories.com.
*By using short code 20222 and texting Books2Kids, a $5 donation will be made (and will appear on the primary subscriber’s cell phone bill), providing two new books to a child in need. Standard messaging rates will apply.

But now there is some controversy on how to get the news, giveaways, reviews, and other tidbits out to our readers who follow our blogs.
Some of the blogs (not on blogger) have lost the ability to use GFC (Google Friend Connect). I took mine down but will be adding it back onto my blog.
Google introduced Google + Circles. Many of us jumped on the bandwagon hoping to gain new readers/followers.

We have Spring Break soon and also a birthday coming up. It amazes me that my little man will be 3 in just 2 weeks.
Our weekend has been quiet as my poor hubby has been under the weather. Too much stress has just taken it's toll on him.
This coming week I want to try and take on one of my cabinets for painting. We purchased a Rustoleum kit and now I just have to get motivated to use it!
Hope everyone's weekend has gone well. Th weather here in Central Florida is spectacular and I hope where ever you are, it is perfect for you!
