Here's a HINT - Review

Image
Do you like water?
Do your children?
What about your spouse?
Well, we try to keep water on hand at all times... I actually have bottled water in the fridge at any given time. I like the ease of it... and the clean taste. If I have to drink tap water, I prefer it with a lemon.
Marc? No, he hates it. I think he would rather be thirsty than drink water. I have tried any and everything, but he just does NOT like it.
Broxton likes water, he likes to swim in it. He likes to play in it. Yep, he even likes to drink it. Out of our water bottles. Not so much fun in a cup or glass.
I am all about trying to find ways to get all of us to drink more water. When the boys were here last summer, I went and bought them each water bottles and let them chug out of there... It seems easier to get ANYONE to drink it if you make it fun.
So, imagine the smile on my face when I heard about HINT flavored water. Luckily, I was able to get a chance to review it...
Hopefully getting Marc to like it... Here is what arrived... Well, af…

Aloha Friday - Travel

Image
Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday. 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.
My Question:
Do you have any travel plans for the summer/spring break?
My Answer:
We don't have anything planned. For Spring Break, we will have the boys here, staying close to home... Or rather, staying AT home... As for this summer, there are a few places we would like to try and go... but nothing planned YET.

Have a great weekend!

Ballad of The Rag Man - Review

Image
With all the bullying going on around us these days... This is a perfect book to read with your child. I was able to review, Ballad of The Rag Man by Cynthia Gustavson.
This book teaches all of us a very simple lesson. Do not judge a book by its cover. How can a book teach us that?
The Ballad of The Rag Man is about a rag man that travels all over town. Picking up what others have deemed as trash. Just what does he do with what everyone no longer wants or needs? He puts them in his cart as he goes all over. Once he returns home, there are piles of others items that they no longer thought were of any value to them. The other character in the book is a little girl that gets rid of her teddy bear. Her well loved and rather worn out teddy bear. The Rag Man picks it up in his daily excursion. Of course, curiosity gets the best of the little girl, she has to know... So, she sneaks to see what he is doing.
Judging him on outer appearances, she is a bit put off.. But once she follows, she sees that the Rag Ma…

Fashion To Figure - Review

Image
Cute plus size clothes are hard to come by... It seems as though everything cute always seems to be made for the super skinny!
Have you heard of Fashion To Figure? They have everything from tops to dresses. Jackets and Jewelry too!
I think that this top is super cute!
Top it off, it is only $22. Most stores have them priced a lot higher than that!
Check out the pants they have too: (Only $26) If plus size clothes aren't your style... You can always stop over to see what types of jewelry, handbags and what not they have to offer!

Momma Must Have - Exergen Temporal Thermometer- Review and Giveaway

Image
As we all know, it can sometimes be a bit difficult to take the temperature of a sick child.Hey, some adults are known to be big babies... The longer they have to wait, the fussier they become.
Well, with the Exergen Temporal Scanner... Wait is something that can be eliminated!
Why do I say that?
Just because the wait is merely 2 seconds!
During that time, you will already be finished a gift giveaway blog hop, exergen temporal scanner, mom must have, R nd moving on to something else.
I really like the ease of the Exergen Thermometer. It has a soft tip on it that you gently swipe across the forehead of your "patient."
There are two things that make this stand out compared to others that I have used. One - If you are sweating, you can place it behind your ear to get your temperature. Two - There is a light on both sides to show you that it is on.
I like that, as I sometimes worry if it is on or not... You know how I can be!
First, remove the protective cap...
Turn it on... Press the button …

Kim & Scott's Gourmet Pretzels Review

Image
I was recently contacted to see if I wanted to review Kim and Scott's Gourmet Pretzel line.Knowing that we like to snack... and that the boys will be coming soon... That means LOTS of snacking. I love pretzels... I prefer the nice, soft, fresh and yummy ones from the mall food court. Marc and Broxton will eat any and all kinds.

I had NO CLUE that the delicious soft baked ones can be found in the freezer section at Target, Wal-Mart and a few other stores...
What makes it even better?
They are not just the plain ones... They are yummy stuffed ones.
I guess they knew how much we like to snack because they sent us several different ones to try. I quickly opened up the Spinach and Feta stuffed one. Delicious!
I asked Marc what he wanted and he immediately wanted to try the Pizza stuffed one. (I kind of knew that was going to be his choice!)
I was not a fan of the Jalapeño Cheddar one, as I am not one that likes ANYTHING with spice. Although it is barely noticeable, it is noticeable enough to me... O…

Pain in the Neck? Bengay helps! Review

Image
I have never been a fan of Bengay. I hate to say it, but I always thought it was for old people!
(Nope, never even gave a bit of thought to any athletic people...) I still do not know what I had against it...
Just something I did not like.
Never even tried it... Guess its like mushrooms, they were nasty... until I tried one...
Now, I like them!
Once I married Marc, we started keeping Bengay in the house... You know, soldier, INFANTRY at that... Meaning, always on the move.
I was recently sent Bengay Pain Relief and Massage. Yep, I used it... and now.... I . AM . HOOKED. That good!

Actually, I slept funny the other night. Not a walk in on me and laugh, but a wake up with a huge pain in the neck. Literally. Pain. All day long. So, I decided to see if this Bengay was all it is cracked up to be.
Now that I did, I could kick my own self in the behind. It is that good. One thing that I REALLY like about it is that the tube is actually an applicator tip. Not just any old applicator either... One that has massagin…
