Soccer Fever hitting your house? #Soccerborg #WorldCup

Image
As much as I love watching the University of Georgia Football team, not everyone knows about the college I attended.  It was a small liberal arts college that did not even have a football team!  (UGA was just too big for me, I never tried to go there!)  My college did have soccer though and of course I was friends with many on the soccer team.  Actually my roommate my first year played soccer, so there you go. Sadly, I don't know much about it, but I do like watching it.  Broxton has played a couple seasons, so when we were given the chance to review the new SOCCERBORG game from TOMY, I knew we would enjoy it!

July13th... #HotelTransylvania3 is out. Are you ready???

Image
Hotel Transylvania popped up on our radar a bit ago.  We watched it and loved it.  (To be honest, I love almost ANYTHING with Adam Sandler, so I thought it would be a good one.)  Broxton enjoyed the first Hotel Transylvania.. so when the second one came out, we knew we had to watch it as well.  Another winner for us... Now we are excited to see number 3.  It will be out on July 13th (that is Friday the 13th, perfect timing!)  and we are already planning to see it.  
We were lucky enough to be sent Hotel Transylvania and Hotel Transylvania 2 to add to our movie collection at home.  We have watched them numerous times already and you can bet that they even made it to the DVD player in the car!  Well, let me back up... We had to take them to the school where Broxton is going for the summer.  They have movie day everyday for the older kids to enjoy while the younger ones take their naps...  This was perfect as we kept telling everyone " you have to catch up on 1 and 2 to be ready for …

Beachin' it with @aquaballdrink #ad

Image
When we started planning our trip to the beach, I knew that we would want to take a cooler down with drinks ready for those long hot days.  I also knew that I did not want to take a cooler of soda, so I thought it would be great to bring along AquaBall! 
We were sent several for review and I am glad we got to try them out. The reason I say that is because I knew that the strawberry lemonade was going to be my go to flavor... I was surprised when it was my least favorite and I really liked the grape the best!  Of course the kids loved them all and the images on the bottle was a big hit!

Summer Travel saved with @plugable #ad

I don't know if your family likes technology as much as ours does, but I wanted to share with you a couple pretty neat products I have recently learned about.  Are you familiar with Plugable?  We were recently sent a couple products to check out and I am telling you, the 3 port smart charger (pictured below) was a huge help!

We recently took a family vacation and made a trip to the beach.  In my car, you can just plug the phone cord into the car, but in the car we took, I needed an adapter.  I don't know about you, but when you are ready to go, you really don't want to stop to buy things as you head out of town.  That was where the plugable 3 port smart charger came in to help save the day!

This is awesome. It h…

Summer Reading - Book One - Drawn Together #ad

Image
As you know, we love reading and with summer now here, I want to kick off a summer reading extravaganza!  Today I want to share the first of many books that you should read this summer. 
Up first, drawn together, it was written by Minh Le and illustrated by Dan Santat.  I will admit that this book is not one I would make a point to purchase, but I am glad that we were sent the book.
It shows that although there are many things in life that will make things difficult, if you look hard enough, you will find a way to draw closer together.

Bubble Guppies - Bubble Puppy's Awesome Adventures #ad

Image
Man, I did not even realize Bubble Guppies was still around. I can still hear "What time is it?!"  When I was surprised with this DVD, I knew it was a show I was going to have to introduce to Savannah!  I loved watching it, but then Broxton was " too old" to watch and we moved on.  Are you familiar with Bubble Guppies?
