How to tell if someone "Liked" your Facebook page



As a blogger who does giveaways it's very important for me to know if someone "Liked" my Facebook page as this is usually a source of entry into my giveaways. Sadly people lie, they say the liked your page or shared your post just to get the entry but upon verification I find out they didn't. But for the longest time I didn't know an easy way to do this, until now. After some time of Goggling it I found out a little Facebook secret! Why can't Facebook just make it easy! Well they don't, so I'm sharing!

Below is an actual snapshot of my Facebook page.

1. Go to "Settings"
2. Go to "Banned Users" (The red arrow on the left)
3. Go to pull down menu and select "People Who Liked This" (The red arrow on the right)

This will bring up all the people that have liked your page in order of when they liked it. This is a very handy tool in verifying entries. If need be, you can ask people if they know how long they have been following you and go to that time frame. If they run and like you right then, you'll be able to see!




Thanks for sharing another adventure with me!
Stay safe, stay sane and stay absolutely splendid!

5 Fun Facts About Showering With A Toddlers

Oh toddlers... the fun and unexpected things you can only know if you have or have had one. I have a 17 month old little girl who is just a joy and even though she's my third, I still learn so much from her! One of her favorite things to do is shower! She hates taking a bath! But the shower... oh how she loves it! She tries to get in fully dress even if the water isn't on. We have a walk in shower with sliding doors and she has just about mastered getting the doors open. Anyway every time my hubby or I are getting in, she runs to the door and tries to get in with us. Of course she discovered "it" so she can no longer shower with my hubby.

But with me, my kids seem to have no problem when I'm naked. My 5 year daughter still showers with me and 12 year son see no reason why he can't talk to me face to face while I'm sitting on toilet. I guess my kids being comfortable with nakedness is a good thing, a little weird for mom but oh well.

Ok I got way off track. So this morning I'm about to jump in the shower, the baby hears the shower turn on and comes running with big smiles. I didn't have the heart to throw her in her play pin while I showered alone so I undress her and let her in with me. And this is the conclusion I have come to:

Buy it on Amazon now!1. I need to shave with those colored bath soaps. While I was shaving she was having a blast grabbing the clean shaving cream off my legs and rubbing it on herself and the walls. But white is not near as fun as colors would be!


2. Everything is a toy. Even though she showers more than she bathes we don't keep toys in the shower just for the sake off room, just a cup. So she tries to play with whatever she can reach, bottles of shampoo, lofas and bars of soap!

3. All I can say is waterfalls are not always a great places to play. She think the water that run down between my legs is just for her so she's constantly sticking her little figures up my thighs and in my crotch.  She especially likes to put the cup up there. I'm desperately trying to break her of playing in this little, uncomfortable (for me) waterfall!

4. Expect them to pick up weird noises. As I rinse the soap off my face, I take a deep breath and then stick my face in the water to rinse and release the air. Well this results in a funny spitting noise that I never realized was produced until I heard her mimicking the noise. Now washing my face will always make me smile as I think about my little parrot.

5. Wash them last! As I watched her play in the water and suds it dawned on me how dirty that water is. But she's having so much fun and well at least she doesn't try to drink it. So my theory is wash them last so they are at least clean when they get out.

It's such a special feeling when you wrap them in a towel and get a sweet little clean snuggle from them! Remember to stay safe in the shower but make it fun, they are only toddlers once!
