I was contacted by Dakota’s Personalized Gifts asking if I would be willing to do a product review for their company. Once I visited their website I was thrilled to have the opportunity. The hardest decision was what product I wanted to review! They have a large selection of items for men, women, babies, weddings, graduations, memorials…. There are a pile of options to choose from.

I chose the Personalized Rhinestone Ladies Baby Tee Shirt and the Personalized Rhinestone Ladies Cotton Shorts from their Birthday Gifts For Her area. Soon after, I was sent the outfit.


The first thing I noticed when the package arrived was how soft the shirt and shorts were. They were soft like my favorite t-shirt. They weren’t stiff like some brands. The seams of the outfit were sewn straight and the rhinestone decals were placed nicely. I chose the letter R for my name. I love the outfit! It’s so comfortable!!

About Dakota’s Personalized Gifts:

We started in a spare bedroom about 5 years ago more as a part time hobby than a business with The Anniversary Rose making roses for the traditional anniversary gifts (i.e. 1st year paper, 2nd year cotton, 5th year wood etc) cutting rose petals by hand with scissors. It quickly grew from a part time hobby to a full time business, adding help and equipment to keep up. Then, we started expanding into personalized anniversary gifts. We started getting many requests from our customers for personalized wedding, Mother’s & Father’s Day and Christmas gifts etc. That’s when we started Dakota’s Personalized Gifts. Soon the business took over a second bedroom and the garage, the following year it occupying two bedrooms, the garage & a full basement. With no room left to expand we were forced to move into a commercial location in 2009. We continue to expand with new products and updated equipment all the time which allows us to produce most of the personalized items in house.

[tweetmeme] We went down to the 165th annual Dutchess County Fair in Rhinebeck, NY.

I’ve been going to the fair my entire life and I’ve only missed 1 year.   (my best friend got married that weekend – she was from Dutchess County, she should have known better!!  LOL!!)  There are certain things I look forward to every year.  One of the major food vendors that I love were MIA this year, but my other favorite thing is the baby animals.  These babies certainly didn’t disappoint!!  There are 13 babies in the first video!!

What are your favorite things to do at fairs?

It’s Friday so you know what that means!  It’s time to recap the week ending January 29th, 2010

The Weekly Read: The Road by: Cormac McCarthy
I like it so far.  It’s weird that it doesn’t have chapters.  It’s about a man and his son who are walking through burned America.  It’s got a kind of “War of the Worlds” kind of feel to it so far without the aliens.  It’s an “Every man for himself” kind of thing.

The Weekly Music: I’ve had a song in my head “I’ve got a feeling, that tonight’s gonna be a good night”  but I don’t know who sings it or what it’s called….

The Weekly Movie: I caught Catch Me If You Can on tv one night.  I really like this movie.  Love the story it’s based on.  I hear there’s an 18 year old kid in the news right now that’s eluding the police like Frank did.

The Weekly Time Waster: Listening to all the applause during the one hour and nine minute State of the Union address….  Every other sentence they clapped.  Let the man speak!  Stand up, sit down, stand up, sit down, up, down, up, down – it was like being in church!! Oh, and while I was searching for the link for the State of the Union I found one for the State of the Union 2010 drinking game….

The Weekly Tea: I’m still drinking my Strawberry Pepper tea from The Whistling Kettle….

The Weekly Food: I made Chicken with Dumplings, Lazy Chicken Soup (which is me using College Inn broth and chopping up celery, carrots, and mushrooms in it and adding noodles), and Michael made chicken wings with Brooks BBQ Wing Sauce for the first time.  All were delicious!!

The Weekly Amazing Fact: Polar bears can eat as many as 86 penguins in a single sitting.  Can we say BURP!

The Weekly Birthdays: Lee Skarshinski, Bert LeCato of InTune Guitar Picks, Catherine Butler, Jen Segala & Tim McCann – Happy Birthday to all of you!!  🙂

The Weekly new people I’ve found on Twitter: Christa Watsonmy friend John Jordan is friends with her and met her last week in Vegas.  He said she’s pretty cool.  Theresa Setzer – I met her at tonight’s Tweetup and she seemed really nice 🙂  Brianne Baggetta I don’t know her really well yet, but according to some close sources she’s cool.  Mary Hibbs AKA The Provident Woman I really like her blog!!

The Weekly Charity I’m Pimping: My friend Donna and her little boy Brendan will be walking in the March of Dimes – March for Babies in April and I’d love to see her reach her $2,000 goal.  Brendan was born pre-mature and is such a strong handsome young boy now 🙂  Please donate to them here.

Weekly Grand Totals:
Tickets Earned at Dave & Busters in NYC:
1,070 (I forgot to put this up last week)
Number of Day’s we’ve eaten chicken this week: 4 (at least)
Number of items out of the library at this time: 30
Number of loads of laundry done: 4
Number of hours slept: Not nearly enough….  (Here come the vampire comments)  😉

The Weekly Hypothetical: If you could have one super power what would it be and why???
