Oh Happy Day: An All-Star Music Celebration

In 1969 The Edwin Hawkins Singers scored a major pop hit with a rousing R&B flavored single called "Oh Happy Day." The song dominated multiple radio formats and would go on to become the first RIAA certified Gold Record in gospel music history. Featured on mainstream radio alongside other pop, rock and R&B hits of the day, "Oh Happy Day" reflected a new era of cross pollination between the Church and the world of popular music.

Now, forty years later, "Oh Happy Day," and other classic songs from hard-core gospel to feel-good pop are gathered together and celebrated by multiple generations of gospel music fans and practitioners, blurring all lines and celebrating the spirit of the songs. This special collection of brand new recordings of pop and gospel favorites by artists of multiple racial, denominational and stylistic backgrounds simultaneously celebrates gospel's roots, shines a light on its influence on the music of today, and points a faithful finger towards a future of continued and expanded influence on contemporary culture.

EMI Music/Vector Recordings is set to release the highly anticipated recording Oh Happy Day: An All-Star Music Celebration on March 31. The album features performances by 3 Doors Down, Al Green, Patty Griffin, Heather Headley, Jon Bon Jovi, Jonny Lang, Queen Latifah, Joss Stone with Buick Audra and many more (see below for full track listing). For the project, these world-renowned musicians collaborated with Gospel artists and several of today’s top Gospel Choirs to record renditions of some of the most loved and recognizable inspirational songs.

Track Listing:

1. Jonny Lang & the Fisk Jubilee Singers “I Believe”

2. 3 Doors Down & the Soul Children of Chicago “Presence of the Lord”

3. Robert Randolph & The Clark Sisters “Higher Ground”

4. Jon Bon Jovi & the Washington Youth Choir “Keep the Faith”

5. Al Green & Heather Headley “People Get Ready”

6. Mavis Staples & Patty Griffin “Waiting for My Child To Come Home”

7. Michael McDonald & the West Angeles COGIC Mass Choir “Storm Before The Calm”

8. Angelique Kidjo “Redemption Song”

9. Aaron Neville & the Mt. Zion Mass Choir “A Change is Gonna Come”

10. Queen Latifah & Jubilation “Oh Happy Day”

11. Joss Stone & Buick Audra “This Little Light Of Mine”

“Keep the Faith” is my favorite as is “This Little Light Of Mine”. Check out Oh Happy Day: An All-Star Music Celebration for yourself and let me know which track caught your ear or if they all did, as it's likely to :)

Making Life Better

"I am starving! What's for dinner?! " is the main question of the day in my house. But, when dinnertime rolls around and I still don't have the answer to this question, I could use a little meal inspiration. With more moms like me preparing meals at home, keeping dinner ideas fresh, easy to prepare and budget-friendly presents some challenges.

Unilever, the consumer package goods company, has spent a great deal of time thinking about how to make everyday life better and help us find ways to create great meals and do more with less. The company's Web site, www.MakingLifeBetter.com, features delicious recipes, affordable meal ideas and tips that stretch your budget and save you time. From Baked Pasta Primavera Casserole to Fresh Vegetables over Couscous, the secret to dinner success in my home is to keep a well-stocked kitchen filled with easy-to-prepare, delicious pantry staples with brands I know and trust.

I've bookmarked www.MakingLifeBetter.com, and here are a few of the great ideas I've found:

Photobucket
Banana Surprise

    * 1 banana, halved lengthwise
    * 1 Tbsp. Skippy ® Creamy or Super Chunk ® Peanut Butter
    * 1 tsp. raisins

With teaspoon, slightly hollow the inside of one of the banana halves. Evenly spread Skippy® Creamy Peanut Butter down the center. Sprinkle with raisins, then top with remaining banana half. Microwave at HIGH 15 seconds or until slightly warm.

**********

Black Bean & Corn Salsa

  • 1/4 cup Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Light Mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 can (19 oz.) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (11 oz.) whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 cup quartered grape tomatoes or cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tsp. chopped jalapeno pepper (optional)
Combine Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Light Mayonnaise, lime juice and cumin in medium bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients. Serve chilled or at room temperature. Also terrific with Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Low Fat Mayonnaise Dressing or Canola Cholesterol Free Mayonnaise. 
********** 
Asiago Toasts
  • 1/3 cup Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Mayonnaise Dressing with Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 cup shredded Asiago or Parmesan-Reggiano cheese
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh oregano leaves or 1 tsp. dried oregano leaves, crushed (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped flat-leaf parsley (optional)
  • 1/2 French baguette, cut into 18 slices
Combine all ingredients except baguette in small bowl. Arrange baguette slices in a single layer on baking sheet; spread cheese mixture on baguette. Broil until the cheese is melted and golden, about 3 minutes. Also terrific with Hellmann's or Best Food Real or Light Mayonnaise.

**********

I loved the recipes and tips and I'm sure you will too. But that's not all. You can get a variety of ideas and tips about Beauty, Home, Wellness, News and many other things. It's a great resource for everyone. So go check out www.MakingLifeBetter.com today!

Veggie Adventures

If you remember, I'd earlier blogged about the makers of Hidden Valley® Salad Dressings who'd created the Love Your Veggies™ campaign to help children develop a life-long love of vegetables through activities at home, at school and in the community.

Photobucket

As part of their continued effort to help parents and educators overcome the challenges of getting children to eat their vegetables, the makers of Hidden Valley Salad Dressings have now created Veggie Adventures, a free online game that can be played now at www.loveyourveggies.com/games. Keeping in mind a recent study that indicated that 60 percent of parents play computer games with their kids, the makers of Hidden Valley Dressings hope Veggie Adventures will be yet another tool for moms to utilize to expand their young children's appreciation for vegetables.

Veggie Adventures engages families in a three-part vegetable adventure that begins with growing vegetables on the farm and ends with serving and sharing vegetables with friends. Along with fun and easy game-play, Veggie Adventures provides players with great tips and vegetable facts meant to be transplanted outside of the gaming experience. At the end of each stage, players receive a printable certificate to commemorate their success.

There are three easy and fun games, each with a facility for user login, scoring and saving your game. And which are pretty fast loading with pleasing graphics. The first game 'At the Farm' is naturally, growing your veggies and protecting them from critters. Second 'On the Road' is for taking the veggies to the market safely. And the third (which I was unable to play for some reason) is 'In The Kitchen'. While playing children get a sense of what it takes to grow, transport and ultimately prepare vegetables for a tasty meal. Fun and Healthy - what could be better? And it's never too early to instill good eating habits, right?

So, do go and check out Veggie Adventures at www.loveyourveggies.com/games. Thanks to Mom Central for introducing me to these fun games!

DVD - Happily N'Ever After 2

Happily N'Ever After 2: Snow White

Synopsis

Fairy tales collide when Mambo and Munk tip the scales of good and evil once again. This time Princess Snow White is a misguided teenager who’d rather have fun with friends Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks and Little Bo Peep than help peasants. When Snow White’s father is matched up with Lady Vain - a scheming witch brewing to rule the kingdom - Snow White becomes a thorn in Lady Vain’s side.

Snow White is soon tricked by Lady Vain (with Rumpelstiltskin’s help) into spreading vicious gossip about the townspeople, forcing her to flee. Through rebuilding the three little pigs’ houses with the seven dwarves leading the way, Snow White learns the value of helping others. Only Snow White can foil her dad’s wedding to stop Lady Vain. With Mambo and Munk in tow, Snow White proves she can rule the kingdom, while bringing balance back to the scales of good and evil.

Happily N'Ever After 2: Snow White is a new twist on the classic tale of Snow White and The Seven Dwarves. The DVD is a sequel to “Happily N’Ever After”, the CGI-Animated theatrical release. Everyone’s favorite characters have returned in Happily N'Ever After 2 including the Seven Dwarves, Rumpelstiltskin, and the hilariously funny break-out characters, Mambo and Munk, back in the role as the Wizard’s assistants responsible for managing the balance of good and evil in Fairy Tale Land. Just like the original, Happily N'Ever After 2 follows everyone’s favorite fairy tales turned upside down in a funny, fast-paced adventure. While I enjoyed this twisted take on a classic tale and the antics of the various characters, it wasn't that understandable to my kid who is more used to the traditional Snow White and the Seven Dwarves tales in his Disney books.

DVD SPECIAL FEATURES*

Includes 3 Interactive Games:
  • Red Riding Hood Challenge : Using Red’s basket of goodies, test your cunning vision to see if you can keep track of the different kinds of pastries that come and go in a limited amount of time.
  • Bo Peep and the Sheep : Outsmart the Ogre in a game of Odd Sheep Out. The Ogre will present several visual Challenges that involve Bo Peep’s sheep.
  • Snow White and the Great Hall : Using hints and tips from Mambo and Munk, make your way down the great hall – all the while Rumpelstiltskin will try to blast dark magic at you by aiming the Mirror in your direction.
*Special features subject to change. Special features not rated.

Ballas Hough Band



Anyone who's given the hit TV series Dancing With the Stars even a cursory glance knows the names Mark Ballas and Derek Hough. Since 2006, the two professional ballroom dancers both led their celebrity partners to victory in successive seasons, trading in months of grueling practice and competition for one highly coveted Mirror Ball trophy. "I love to entertain people," says Mark, who took the crown on season 6 with Olympian Kristi Yamaguchi (Derek won in season 7 with Brooke Burke). "Seeing people smile and enjoy themselves, that's what I live for."

But entertaining audiences never took one form for Mark or Derek. The two best friends have been playing and making music together for more than a decade, in between touring theatrical productions and ballroom competitions. And like every achievement they've crossed off their collective to-do list, a career in music was a dream they worked towards tirelessly. "

The Ballas Hough Band, features  fan favorites Mark Ballas and Derek Hough on vocals and guitar, Emily Grace on keyboards and vocals, bassist Sam Marder and drummer Harry Sullivan. In addition to their own originals, the album features collaborations with songwriters Dan Wilson, Kevin Kadish and Marty James on several tracks. Lead single “Do It For You” was co-written by new “American Idol” judge Kara DioGuardi, Marty James and Ari Levine, and mixed by Serban Ghenea (Justin Timberlake, Mary J. Blige, Kelly Clarkson, NERD).

About the band, Derek says, "I’m sure that people’s first reaction to us will be, 'These dancing guys think they can play guitar now?' But after seeing us play, they'll realize that this is not a Hollywood move to make a quick buck. At our shows, it's always the guys — who were probably dragged out by their girlfriends — who'll come up to us and say, 'Man, you guys can play.' Eventually, people will come to know that we can shred on guitar, rip on the bass, that our drummer had a scholarship to Berklee College of Music, that our piano player is trained as well as any Julliard graduate, and that we're five kids who've grown up together and know each other inside and out, and have been playing together for years."

Following the spring season of "Dancing with the Stars," the band will embark on a summer tour across the U.S. More information can be found at www.Myspace.com/ballashoughband

The track listing for BHB is as follows:

   1. Do You Love Me
   2. Devastated
   3. Closer
   4. She Was The One
   5. Longing For
   6. Birthday
   7. Fall
   8. Do It For You
   9. Breakthrough
  10. Together Faraway
  11. Underwater

Of the songs that aren't BHB originals, the first single, "Do It For You," was co-written by new American Idol judge Kara Dioguardi and makes for the perfect introduction to the band's pop sensibilities. And it's one of my personal favorites!

Check out these great tracks today! Buy your own copy here.

Stride Rite Shoes - Review

Photobucket 

Most of you may need no introduction to Stride Rite, the leading brand of premium children's footwear in the US for over 85 years! All this time, they've been refining upon engineering footwear designed specifically for the feet of growing young children.

Photobucket

These were some of the reasons I was very happy when Stride Rite sent over 2 pairs for review consideration. One was the Rio from their New Arrivals and the other was true classic, the Skip from their popular pre-walkers selection.

The Rio is something my son just loved! And why not?!

PhotobucketPart of the PlayGround Collection, there's a little extra spunk and flavor in this sporty pair. Whether he's exploring the world or his own backyard, antimicrobial lining, flexible outsoles and moisture-wicking technology will keep his feet comfy, dry and fancy-free.
  • Leather/mesh upper
  • Hook-and-loop closure for adjustability
  • New lightweight, flexible outsole
  • Antimicrobial lining for fresh feet
  • Machine washable (air dry only) and moisture wicking
Kiddo walked and ran, indoors and out in them with perfect balance. That he didn't start trying to take them off within the first 5 minutes, was proof enough of their comfort level, as my little man is very particular there. "Tite" is his word for discomfort and I didn't hear them when he wore his new pair of Rios! Kiddo is tough on his shoes and they don't last very long. But the Rios are roomy enough to look like they'll carry him thru Summer and perhaps even into Fall!

PhotobucketLil' Skip, on the other hand, is one I look forward to putting my baby's feet in as it promises to be gentle and cozy for those newborn, untouched heels!

Made for crawling, the sporty Lil' Skip is enhanced with ultra-comfortable Natural Motion System™ to give tiny, growing feet the protection they need as they explore the world for the very first time. Designed to mimic barefoot walking, these sandals have a flexible stride path and natural propulsion that babies need to grow into strong walkers.
  • Leather (White and Classic Navy) or Nubuck (Brown) upper
  • Leather linings for breathability
  • T-strap closure for easy on/off
  • Padded collar to protect those tender heels
  • Natural Motion System™ for superior fit and support
  • Stage 1 - Supple, protective footwear for tiny growing feet.

If you can't find a StrideRite retailer near you (just use the store locator feature) and you're worried about sizes while buying online - don't be! Stride Rite has come with E-fit - a special feature that will help you find just what you're looking for in 4 easy steps!

Stride Rite put it best when they say their motto is : Life's Waiting, Let's Go!

I'm a fan now! Go ahead - Try Stride Rite today, if you haven't already.

Already have a pair of Stride Rites in your home? Leave a comment with your thoughts on this brand name! I look forward to hearing from you.

Current by Discover Card

I recently came across an interesting poll - "Have you started economizing yet? If yes, then how has your family, especially your kids, reacted to it?" Seeing as my kid is still a toddler, I haven't faced these tough situations - yet! But I know this proves even tougher when dealing with tweens and teens who want access to plastic, where the set allowance suddenly gets overspent at the mall.

If only there was an intelligent credit card, right? Well, there is - sort of!

To help us balance the desire of our kids with the balance in our checking accounts, Discover Card came up with a truly innovative debit card called Current by Discover Card, designed especially for kids ages 13 to 18. The Current Card helps us teach our kids born in a digital age how to manage spending.

Current features include:
  • Helpful Account Management Features: Parents can set spending limits, restrict merchant categories and track their teen’s spending through online statements, e-mail and text message alerts. They also enjoy the convenience of free, flexible loading options. Teens also can load their paychecks onto the card through direct deposit.
  • Advanced Security Features: Current is protected by Discover’s $0 fraud liability, which means cardmembers are never responsible for unauthorized charges – online, offline, anytime, anywhere. Current cards that are lost or stolen will be temporarily suspended or deactivated, and cardmembers will be eligible for an emergency replacement.
  • Financial Education Resources: Teens can learn how to spend smarter by logging onto the Account Center at CurrentbyDiscover.com. There they can view helpful articles on topics such as basic financial concepts, protecting yourself from identify theft, starting a savings program, and making your money go further.
  • Meaningful Rewards: Teens are eligible for members-only in-store coupons and online discounts when they use their card at select restaurants, movie theaters and teen-friendly merchants. What’s more, parents earn Discover Cashback Bonus or Miles when they load their teen’s Current Card using their Discover Card.
  • Low Pricing: Cardmembers pay a $5 monthly charge for each card, or save $10 by paying an annual fee of $50. Fees include four free ATM withdrawals per card per month.
Plus, because it's a debit card product, the card stops working when the limit is reached without incurring any additional fees, which protects your teens from overspending.

That's not all! As parents, we have the responsibility to discuss wise spending habits as a family. Discover Card created an online resource, www.currentbydiscover.com, to help us talk with our kids about managing and spending money, and the importance of setting limits.

To sum up -

For Parents:
  • Easily add funds from a credit card or bank account
  • No effect on you or your teen's credit
  • $0 liability guarantee
  • Set your teen's spending limits
  • Restrict teen card use in unwanted shopping categories
For Teens:
  • Your cash is safe if your teen card is lost
  • Withdraw cash at ATMs
  • Unique card designs
  • Get exclusive discounts at your favorite merchants
  • Disable teen card if lost, reactivate when found
And they come in a variety of cool Teen Card designs! Win, win all around!

Help make your Kids understand. Help them by getting the Current by Discover Card. Thanks to Mom

A B Sea Baby - Review

Photobucket

Today I'm happy to introduce you to a wonderful baby boutique - a b sea baby, a mother-daughter homegrown company founded in Atlantic Beach, Long Island, New York!
Photobucket

As many of you know, I'm a fan of all things organic. This is especially true when it comes to clothing. My son has very sensitive skin and as such I'm on lookout for clothes that won't cause him to break him out in a rash or cause him some sort of discomfort. Organic clothing is the best when it comes to kids like him. And a b sea baby has nothing but safe, chic and utterly comfy organic clothes for kids!

Photobucket

For washing, high performance, elasticity and absorbency,a b sea babycreated a blend of majority silk with just enough organic cotton. These blends are better than pure organic cottons because they breathe easy in summer and hold heat in winter. a b sea discovered that 70% silk wears magically for babies’ bodies and parents’ care. Silk is luxurious, and this marriage is practical, enhancing both fibers beautifully.

Photobucket

The result is incredibly soft, beautiful little washables. And I can personally attest to that. Kiddo was sent a sand colored tee that's oh-soft and wears beautifully! We're still in the grip of winter, but I look forward to dressing him in this new tee for Summer, knowing the unique blend will keep him cooler and more comfortable in the long run that other ordinary cotton clothing!

Photobucket

Since a b sea specialize in newborn sizes right up to 24 months, there's something for everyone there. These clothes wear softly on babies’ bodies, wash clean in cold care, and warm well in all weather, making this one of the best children's clothing around!




Not just that! They're entirely respectful of our environment, wrapping and shipping their naturals in recycled materials!

Stop by a b sea today - their clothes are to be seen to be believed!

Carpet Fresh

In busy households, carpet odors seem practically unavoidable. Because they act as natural odor absorbers, keeping carpets smelling fresh can feel almost impossible between kids, pets and cooking odors. Isn't it frustrating to clean and clean and end up with a clean carpet, that still carries some nasty odor - yech?!
Thankfully, there's a solution!

Carpet Fresh® products by the WD-40 Company offer one way to help us restore our homes' carpets' fresh, clean scent. Carpet Fresh Quick-Dry Foam delivers odor-fighting agents deep into carpet fibers. It reaches places air fresheners can’t and leaves a long-lasting fragrance that freshens both your carpet and room.
  • Specially formulated odor-eliminators go deep into carpet fibers.
  • Light, quick-drying foam will not leave a residue.
  • Safe for use around children and pets. Use as directed.
Carpet Fresh Quick-Dry Foam can also be used to freshen:
  • Upholstery
  • Car interiors
  • RV interiors
Courtesy Mom Central, I was sent the Fresh Scent foam to try out and my experience with it has been most satisfactory. I just sprayed it on a couple of spots where my son had thrown up some time ago. The stain was gone but the stink, it still remained faintly. And also one some other areas where coffee stains were faded but still you could smell it somewhat! I just sprayed the Fresh Scent foam on the affected areas, left it for a while and then vacuumed as always. Lo behold! those odoriferous botherations are now no more. Now my carpet looks and, more importantly, smells clean!

Carpet Fresh Carpet and Room Odor Eliminator are truly an effective and family friendly way to remove the toughest, trapped carpet odors.The full line of fragrances includes: Country Potpourri, Morning Rain, Apple Cinnamon, Fresh Scent and Super Pet Neutralizer.
