CSN Review

I know that many of you have heard of CSN. But for those of you who haven't, CSN Stores have so many items its crazy! They have everything from Dressers, to dining room chairs, kitchen items and great stuff for the Bathroom. CSN is made up of over 200 online stores and has something for everyone and every budget. 

I have a small farm house that is 2 bedrooms, one bathroom (yikes!) and a huge living-room that flows into the kitchen. With the new baby, there isn't enough rooms for us all! So my wonderful husband is building  on to our house. YAY! I'm getting a new Super Huge bedroom,  massive closet and a nice size laundry room along with a smaller bathroom. He says the bathroom is for "The Men". Never mind that the other "Man" is still only 5 months old! But I'm not complaining! This bedroom is HUGE! I have been looking for a few items to put in my new space and I don't think I will ever be able to decide on just a few things!

I saw this bench  and thought it would look great at the end of my bed! The addition to the house also means that we will have to furnish my sons room so I was looking at the kids area and I was so surprised to see that CSN also offers things such as Baby Carriers  and strollers. That Is GREAT! I saw this amazing, Beautiful Cradle. I don't need one as I already have one for the baby but all I can say is WOW! Look at how detailed this is! I wish I could have this!

I'm telling you, They have it all! I can't wait to browse this store some more to see what I can find! Christmas is comming up you know! Now i think i know just what to ask for: a new set of pots and pans! Yes, I got a new set about 3 years ago for Christmas but I love to cook and I, for some reason, think I must have a new set every few years! I MUST have this Rachael Ray set! I just love her!

Seriously, if your in the market for Anything at all, Stop by CSN first. They have all the top brands all in one place. They even offer free shipping on most items! Not in the market for a new bed? Just take a look and drool over what you might choose when you are!

I have to say, Yo Gabba Gabba is one of those childrens shows that are so great to teach often overlooked things such as standing in line, waiting your turn, no biting, and saying I'm sorry. My 4 year old girl and my 5 month old son really like the show. It has different parts to the show that all tie in together at the end which is great for little ones attention span (or Lack thereof). I know, I know I'm going to have people thinking "She shouldn't be letting her 5 month old watch TV!" Well guess what, I DO! He Really loves that show and it's a great way for me to be able to do things around the house or even read that magazine article i've been trying to read for a week. I've given up on books (tear) until I can put the baby down to play with out him screaming his head off! He thinks he MUST be held at all times and if not, well, he will LOUDLY let you know what he thinks of that!
Back to the reason of this post: Did you know that Yo Gabba Gabba is on Tour sponsored by Kia Sorento CUV? Yes!

I think it is so great that they have gone on tour and even more excited that something like this is close to where I live!
