Congratulations to our winner, Pinky Sade!
Thank you again to eShakti for sponsoring this giveaway.
Much Love
 Oh & don't miss my next fabulous giveaway, tomorrow from Pulse Yoga.

I have a special giveaway today for you from
If you haven't heard of eShakti then you should really check them out. 
Especially if you have a hard time finding clothes that fit you right......
why do I say that you ask?
Well at eShakti you can customize every part of your clothing purchase, from the measurements
to the sleeves to the trim & the collar cut. 
This clothing is custom made for YOU!
You know it's going to fit & it's going to fit perfect because you are in charge.
Let your inner Fashion Star out as you
design a dress or shirt to what you like best and to what will fit you.
Ruffle front poplin dress-check out the different colors it comes in here
I adore the color of this Passementarie trim poplin dress
You're sure to find the perfect little black dress too like this
Her fifties sundress
Which also comes in this nautical version-too cute!
Look at how fun the Bow front corset style dress looks
They have a ton of new fun printed dresses too in the Social Butterfly section
& how about this pretty Rosette trimmed blooms dress

Now it's your turn to experience how great a custom fit dress looks and feels on your
unique body type. 
eShakti is giving any one product of choice to ONE lucky reader of Stay At Home Nation
(so you must follow publicly through gfc)
Not only do they have fabulous styles & prints of dresses, but also tops, skirts, pants, purses, & more!
My 1 piece of advice for you is to send your exact measurement. I ordered bigger than I was because 
I didn't want it too snug in certain areas. Don't do that, just send your exact measurements because 
these dresses are true to size-trust me. 

This prize is valued between $14-$80 depending on what you choose.
It is open to all U.S & Canada residents.
Winner will be selected June 1, 2012.

Good Luck

Deal Alert! 3 Month Supply Of 800mg Pure Green Coffee Bean Caps ONLY $46.50 ($179 value)

Pin It
OK so if you know me, I only post 'deals' that I have actually purchased
because they truly are a great deal. I have not received any compensation for any site or
product mentioned in this post.  
Kgbdeals has an awesome deal today on a 3 Month Supply of 800mg Pure Green Coffee Bean Capsules
Why is this a great deal you ask?
Well for the past week, my husband & I have been taking Green Coffee Bean Capsules & have both
lost 4 lbs each & that's with taking 2-3 200mg caps twice a day! 

My husband told me about this product 3-4 weeks ago because he came across a study that showed
all the people (in a small study) lost weight & had no side effects while taking this product.
2 months after having baby #4 I was diagnosed with 2 thoracic herniated discs(which was the
cause of my recent pain & limited range of motion) since then I have developed a 3rd herniated disc(cervical). Over the past year I have not gotten much relief from these discs & have tried any & all options I have come across(except surgery)-I am hoping to heal them or at least strengthen my back so that I can live with them without so much pain.
The reason that I am disclosing this, is that after having baby #3 & #4 15 months apart, and 2 months postpartum developing my herniated discs, I have held onto an additional 40 lbs that I can't lose by exercise just yet. By taking the green coffee bean capsules, I was hoping to jump start my
weight loss so that I can get started on a workout plan that is safe for my back without aggravating it.

Since my husband & I have started the green coffee bean extract, we have not had any negative side effects.  I notice that I eat less at meals & get fuller faster. It is a great product thus far & will keep you posted on our progress.
Anyways kgbdeals has this deal for the 800mg capsule(while trying to find it locally, one of the vitamin stores told me Dr Oz had mentioned this product & that is why they are always sold out),  all I could find around Alpharetta was 200mg, which means a bottle of 60 only lasts a week between 2 people. The 800mg, 60 count bottle will last 1 person, 1 month. With this deal, you get 3 bottles of 60. I am not a Doctor, & this may not be the answer for everyone, but it is a great start for me & wanted to share this deal with you, since
I have seen results. 

I hope this works for you too-hurry & order them HERE before they run out!
Oh and it gets better,
 I also found (& used)the discount code KGBRADSMY10 at checkout-it gives you $10 credit in your kgb account. Enjoy

Much love

Also if you love a fantastic & free deal-go to Mealr.net & get 2 weeks of healthy meal planning for free!
Just enter code WRIUWN5X0P instead of payment information under section 4

Congratulations to #20 Kellr78 who was selected by random.org

the word.  Come back Monday to see what other great products I am giving away then =D
Have a great day!

I wanted to say THANK YOU to my readers(new & old) here at Stay At Home Nation,
for any & all of you who have sent me an email, left a comment, followed me, entered or sponsored a giveaway, re-pinned something I've pinned on Pintrest, read 1 or multiple posts, tried a recipe, craft, or tip of mine, featured me, linked to me, tweeted, or helped spread the word about my blog-
Thank YOU all!
I am so fortunate to have a blog that continues to grow daily. It makes me feel the "blog love" to see the number of daily visitors from around the world who enjoy my posts.
YOU are why I continue to blog -
while it is nice to have an outlet for my creativity & thoughts,
& it is so much fun to craft & host great giveaways....
I must admit sometimes I feel a bit overwhelmed.
So Thank You also for understanding when I am late posting a link party(My Favorite Things Friday Link Party will resume tomorrow!!), or a giveaway, or a post in general.
I am trying to stay afloat with everything from the kiddos & husband, the house cleaning, Drs appointments, Birthdays & holidays, cooking, & the blog(which has to take a backseat sometimes).
So to share my Thanks to you,
I have an awesome Giveaway Finale worth over $350 this week!!

TO ENTER - (mandatory)
Follow Me Publicly through Google (gfc located on my sidebar)
(no other entries will count if you do not publicly follow as this is a Giveaway for my readers)
-then leave me a comment below letting me know you follow
(additional entries below)

1 lucky reader of Stay At Home Nation will win all of the following:
Have you ever wanted to know where your family really came from? Ancestry.com is THE place to begin your search. I was able to locate all the information(in a matter of a few months) that it took my brother to research through libraries & records over the course of a year, plus I even found more!
It really is neat to look through the actual records of past family members to see when & where they came from. I saw my great grandfather's military records & while I had some of the information, it was interesting  to input it & see the matches that ancestry.com pulls up. It helps to fill in the gaps when you do not know all the details, plus it puts it all in one place. There is SO much information documented in their records from birth & death records, military, census reports, and so many more resources to help you put the puzzle pieces together of your family's past.
Ancestry.com is giving away an Annual Deluxe Membership Package valued at $299.40
There are so many features & resources to this membership package-you are going to LOVE it!
And right now you can get a 14 day trial for free- go Here for more details
And 1 Chic Sac from Isn't This Clever ~ valued at $7.99 
I have used mine a bunch, from using it to hold my stuff(wallet, snack & cups for my little ones, keys, pretty much a catch all on the go =D), I have used it for a quick run to the grocery store (it holds a lot), I have even taken it to the beach & was fantastic as it held everything I needed & is very durable! I toss it in the wash & it's like new. While it does come with a convenient loop that you can hook your keys to, mine came undone, which is not a big deal because it also has a shallow pocket which I actually like better. You can even fold it back up in the pouch it comes in so you can keep it handy in your purse or in the car because it is a very useful bag!
Use discount code THNX5 to receive $5 off any order on their site Here(they have a ton of neat items!)
(You can check out my review for another item from them for the Cushy Closer Here)
PediSox are a different kind of sock....while their main purpose is to keep pedicures fresh while keeping your feet moisturized, they are so comfortable! I don't like socks that are loose or where you can feel the piling on the inside, or when fuzz gets between your toes. PediSox don't do any of that! They are snug and feel great! You can get thinner ones for the summer or thicker to keep your feet warmer in cooler months all while keeping your toes pretty =D
PediSox is giving away a pair of these adorable Ultra PediSox valued at $10
Along with the PediSox, I will be sending out a surprise package of assorted items to the winner,
because everyone loves a surprise =D

Total giveaway valued at over $350.00 in prizes this week
