This nice company asked me to try a couple products and do a review for them.
Now this is an absorbent, washable, reusable briefs that helps you maintain your dignity, saves you money and protects the enviornment.


 - one-piece discreet design with built-in pad
- patented absorbant, ordor-control fibers
-washable, reusable over 200 machine washes
-looks and feels like regular underwear
-protect the environment from disposable diapers
-maintain your dignity

They also offer 100% cotton diabetic socks made by Buster Brown, for maximum comfort and durability. They are appropriate for those with poor circulation, easily irritated skin, or diabetes.

 Buster Brown 100% cotton socks are made with no elastic or synthetics. The seamless design of Buster Brown cotton socks with cushioning improve comfort, reduce binding, and eliminate skin irritation.

Okay - now here's the deal - there's going to be a drawing for a pair of diabetic socks.  

Leave me a comment saying you are interested in the socks.  I'll pick next Thursday when I have another new product to review from Old World Market . . .  you'll have to come back and see what that is!!!

I have to tell you the socks and undies were everything they promised...and I was not paid any money for this recommendation.



A good friend sent me this and I wanted to share it with you :-}}

This is so neat. I had never heard this before. This is beautiful - and it is surely worth making the 5 finger prayer a part of our lives.

1. Your thumb is nearest you. So begin your prayers by praying for those closest to you. They are the easiest to remember. To pray for our loved ones is, as C. S. Lewis once said, a 'sweet duty.'

2. The next finger is the pointing finger. Pray for those who teach, instruct and heal. This includes teachers, doctors, nurses, and ministers. They need support and wisdom in pointing others in the right direction. Keep them in your prayers.

3. The next finger is the tallest finger. It reminds us of our leaders. Pray for the president, leaders in business and industry, and administrators. These people shape our nation and guide public opinion. They need God's guidance.

4. The fourth finger is our ring finger. Surprising to many is the fact that this is our weakest finger, as any piano teacher will testify. It should remind us to pray for those who are weak, in trouble or in pain. They need your prayers day and night. You cannot pray too much for them.

5. And lastly comes our little finger - the smallest finger of all, which is where we should place ourselves in relation to God and others. As the Bible says, 'The least shall be the greatest among you.' Your pinkie should remind you to pray for yourself. By the time you have prayed for the other four groups, your own needs will be put into proper perspective and you will be able to pray for yourself more effectively.

put my name in the drawing for the socks... i just googled to find the wearever pants, and there are many places that sell them, where did you get yours from?

CalamityJr said...

I'd love to win the socks. Since I wear scrubs to work, socks and comfortable footwear are an important part of my wardrobe. Thanks for working with these companies for us!

Annesphamily said...

I am going to rememeber the five point prayer. Thanks for sharing. Always looking for healthy smoothies too. You are a doll! Have a beautiful day.

Changes in the wind said...

Like that five finger prayer:)

Nonnie said...

Thanks for the recipes. Just this week I made the switch to almond milk from my Stonyfield yogurt because of its calcium content. I am going to check on those socks for men. They might help my DH.
I have seen the five point prayer and I like it. Thanks for sharing it.
Until tomorrow, have a great day!

Jill said...

Love the finger prayer and I will use it. Thank you!

The smoothies sound good too!

TexWisGirl said...

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Those sound like great products.

I wish I liked bananas.

Sandee said...

Bwahahahahaha on the laugh. I know what he meant.

Love the lift. Right on the money as usual.

Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs. ☺

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

Oh Chatty I loved the LIFT today again! Thank you.

You changed your banner as of yesterday and you took that heels with the bows on it from Pinterest, huh? I love those shoes, I love to just stare at them.

Hug to you dear friend!

(oh don't count my post as in the giveaway)

Sharon said...

I really liked the five-finger prayer. Last night and today my thumb is really getting a work-out as I pray for those closest to me. Lots of stuff going on, and my mind is racing.

But God stills me.


Jemma said...

What a sweet, sweet prayer. I have never heard of this before either. I was thinking it might be here is the Church, here is the Steeple, open the door and see all the people.

Smoothies- oh so yummy!!
Smiling over the tombstone:)
Happy Hugs,

barbara woods said...

put my name in Sandie , my sis-in-law could sure use the socks. thanks


GOSH I haven't heard the name Buster Brown since my kids were little and wore their shoes.

SavannahGranny said...

Sandi, I love and need the five finger prayer, especially the thumb. I am requesting everyone's prayers for my son.
Love the socks. I am diabetic and I just told Bob, a couple of days ago, that I needed to check out this type of sock.
Have a blessed weekend, Ginger

Gail Dixon (La.Belle) said...

What a great way to remember prayers. Thank you! The smoothie sounds delightful, so thank you for that, too. :)

My Journey With Candida said...

My Mother in Law has to use diabetic socks. I like them because they don't bind my legs at night.

Don't put me in for the drawing though, I have some already.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I love the 5 point prayer! The smoothies look good, too. Have a terrific day!

Sandy said...

My goodness those smoothies look delish! I need to get back into drinking smoothies.
That quote from Lewis has always been a favorite.
The five finger prayer is so sweet and just how we should pray.

Jim said...

I'm liking this, Sandie. Especially the prayer instructions/reminder and the tombstone.

Have a nice day,

Bev said...

Ohhh la la... I like the socks and the undies:)))

Terri said...

I do like that five finger prayer. I'm going to remember that one.

Lynn said...

Love the finger prayers! And that cartoon is funny. :)

Ann said...

I'm putting whey protein powder on the shopping list because those smoothies sound good

Eva Ason said...

Those smoothies sounds very nice :)
Hope you're having a great day, bedtime for me now. Hugs x

Cathy said...

I like that 5 finger prayer - very good. Yummy Smoothies!

Susan said...

Hi Sandie....The smoothies sound good.

What is the purpose of the socks? Do they help with swelling? If yes, put my name into the hat, okay? Thanks.

Take care and have a good Friday! Susan

Ginny said...

I have lymphoma and can't even fit into my Crocs now, my feet are so huge and swollen. So I wear the diabetic socks!! I would love to try these, if you think they would fit really big and swollen feet and legs. You are very generous, giveaways are always so much fun!!!

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Lovin' the laugh! Have a great day:@)

Wanda's Wings said...

Alice is diabetic and would love to be in the drawing for the socks.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I love making smoothies...yum!

Grandma Bonnie said...

Those socks sound nice.
I have never heard of the five finger prayer. I have got to try it.

Denise said...

The smoothies sound yummy to my tummy. Where can I find whey protein? I love the five finger prayer. Would love to be in the drawing for the socks. I am a type 1 diabetic, dealing with neuropathy.

Dee said...

I am interested in the socks and i would not mind trying the undies...they would come in handy when laughing at your jokes :) I keep thinking I am going to make smoothie's and never get around to it. I have heard the five finger prayer but forgot how it went...thanks for the reminder.

Betsy Adams said...

Neat prayer ---using your fingers.... Love it.

The funny is GREAT...

Both panties and socks looks great --but don't add me to your list.

Love your Protein Shakes. Hubby drinks one of those almost everyday since he was low on protein. He also puts a dash of honey in his in addition to the cinnamon.


SweetMarie said...

Put me in the drawing for the socks please. :) If I win I will give them to my grandma. :)
I will try these smoothies...they sound so yummy!
I'll email you. :)

jack69 said...

The smoothies do sound good.
I like the idea of the Wearever's. If we live long enough we will need the mental support, that is for sure.

Loved the laugh!!
Always, a great read. Thanks...


Ivy and Elephants said...

What a great prayer rule! I love it and will use it to keep things in perspective. Count me in!

Stephanie said...

I drink almost the same time of almond blast shake the only big difference is I have never added cinnamon!

Jazzi said...

I have seen the finger prayer thing before. It is good. and oh yah, I are interested in Socks!! :-)

I have never heard of the five finger prayer reminder, but it's wonderful. A way to not leave anyone out. Thank you for passing it on.
I would love to win the socks though I wasn't sure what diabetic socks are. I DO love sockies!

Arkansas Patti said...

Just copied the smoothie recipes. I love them and for most of the summer, they are my dinner. Haven't tried whey but will give it a whirl.
I had the dreaded Buster Brown hair cut in the 7th grade. No one should do that to their kid :)
No need to put me in the drawing. Hope someone who can use them gets them.
The undies might be a great idea during allergy season with violent sneezing. Will check them out. Thanks.

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

LOVE the five finger prayer guide. Great stuff! blessings ~ tanna

Debbie said...

The five finger prayer guide is wonderful. I will be sharing that.
I will be very careful not to mention that I got a kick out of the one used to pray for our leaders. I am not proud of that, but I did think that it was kind of funny. (Hangs my head in shame)

I am not diabetic so I should leave the socks for those who are. I do like the new invention of those reusable pants. I am positive that a lot of women will be appreciating them.

Ah-choo.... me as well, more often than I like.
