Aloha Friday #14 - Soda

It is Friday!
Time for a visit with Kailani:
In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.
If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

My question this week:
What do you drink...
Coke or Pepsi?

Me? I am Coca Cola Girl!


J.R.Watkins - Review

Okay, I have to admit...
I love lotion...
and shower gel...
and lip balm...

I once applied to work at Bath and Body Works.
I do not have to tell you that I am so, SO glad that I was not hired!
I think I would have spent my whole paycheck on the products.
No, that would not have been good.

That does not stop me though!
If I am ever out, I always have to stop and look...
and sometimes purchase!
You can never have too much.
Well, you probably could!
But, I do not think so!

Enter J.R. Watkins!

In 1868, Watkins was founded in Plainview, Minnesota.
Mr. Watkins produced an all-natural liniment for tired and achy muscles.
Get this, he was SO CONFIDENT in his product, that he even offered THE FIRST money back guarantee! By the turn of the century, business was booming. Watkins then became the J.R.Watkins Medical Company, selling perfumes, salves, and even spices!
All of the products were all natural! Today, J.R.Watkins is an international product!
It is crazy!
The J.R.Watkins brand is pretty large!
They have the Personal Care Line (facial care, foot care, body and hair care)
They also offer the Home Care (dish soap, bathroom cleaner, furniture polish and detergent)
They even carry a Gourmet Line (spices and extracts)
Last but not least, how it all got started, they carry several different natural remedies!

I was able to sample products from the Apothecary Line.
The Apothecary line carries a little of everything!
From Body Cream, Hand Soap, Room Spray and Lip Balm.
They have it all!

I am loving the Body Cream!
I put it on when I go to sleep.
It is rather THICK, but I like it! It is not greasy and the smell is very light.
At first, I was unsure about a lemon scent. But, it is light and fresh!

The room spray is a nice subtle smell.
It is more of a mist, versus the aerosol can where it just keeps on coming.
The lip balm makes my lips feel nice and moist!
I have a habit of licking my lips, way to much!!!!
This actually helps to keep the moisture in my lips and not get so dry.

I am definitely going to have to get the head to toe kit for whenever I go anywhere!
I also think I need to check out the Calming Bath Soak!

I want to get the liniment items for Marc...
We use Icy Hot on his aches alot, this all natural will be so much better!
(They have the liniment, a spray and a warming balm!)

I can tell you this, I will be pampering Marc when he returns...
Don't you think he deserves it?!

Congrats, I will be emailing you shortly!

Pretty Cool - Thanks Mom Select!

So, it was kinda sorta like Christmas came a bit early for us!
LoL, I heard the knock at the door and when I got there...

I had a nice, BIG box waiting for me!

I immediately opened it and realized...
I am loving Mom Select!

Broxton and I were in for treat!
We found Holly and Hal waiting for fun!
Holly and Hal are from Build-A-Bear.
We also got a book telling all about the adventure that Holly and Hal went on!
They are just the cutest things!
Broxtons eyes got SO BIG when he saw that the lights on Hals antlers lit up!
We had family over this weekend and I have to tell you...
All the younger ones were talking about how they wanted Hal and Holly at their house.

We even got a Temple Touch Thermometer to check out...
I have to tell you, I am the mom that really likes this kind.
I was always so worried about the whole taking the temp. and this makes it so much easier!
You can even take it while they are sleeping and not even bother them...
Makes for a better situation than it once was!

I am not sure how many of you have heard of Boz,the green bear...
I hate to admit it, but I was unfamiliar with him. We received 2 DVD's with Boz and we watched the holiday one at the Christmas get together over the weekend. I played it again today so there was background music for Broxton and I. The DVD is something that I know will get watched plenty here!
Boz is great! Besides a fun and loving character, Boz helps to spread THE WORD. My cousin mentioned seeing the DVD's for sale at the Christian bookstore...
I am glad that we know of him now!

To round off the wonderful package from Mom Select, we also got a nice sized bottle of EVOO. Now, to cook and use it!
Last, but of course, not least...
We have a coupon to try out SUN laundry detergent!

Thanks MomSelect!
We are enjoying ALL of our Christmas items you sent us!
