MelanSol All Natural Sunscreen - Review and Giveaway

I LOVE going to the pool, but I normally get burnt.
With that being said, I KNOW I am not the only one :)
I am always looking to see what other sun protection is out there.
With Memorial Day around the corner, I know that many people will be outside enjoying the weather.
I wanted to share with you a product that we will be using Memorial Day, as well as throughout the summer!

Also, I never really gave much thought, but I always said I needed "sunblock."
Then, I got to thinking... is sunBLOCK what I need?
I thought that the sun was supposed to be good, you know... Vitamin D and all?

Thank goodness MelanSol explained it to me!
MelanSol is a sunscreen, it allows 3-10 5 of the suns UV Rays to reach your skin.
Remember, the Vitamin D?
See, I knew I was not going crazy!!!

You know I am not one for quoting all sorts of stuff from their site, so you can click over to the MelanSol FAQ to learn more, but I did want to share this with you:

From their site:
Q. Why should you adopt MelanSol® as your brand of sunscreen?
A. Because MelanSol® was invented by Peter Zahner, a man who experienced basal and squamous cell carcinoma skin cancer first hand. It is specifically formulated to help prevent sunburn and the kind of skin damage that can cause these two non-lethal forms of skin cancer. It accomplishes this by helping your body protect itself in two different ways, instead of just one. Your first level of protection is zinc oxide or titanium dioxide, natural active ingredients that safely reflect a high percentage of UV rays away from your skin. Your second level of protection, and the reason why MelanSol® sunscreen is so revolutionary, is a special combination of potent all natural antioxidants that help your body fight the buildup of free radicals--rogue molecules that form on your skin when its exposed to UV rays. Free radicals are the cause of sunburn and long-term skin damage that can lead to basal cell and squamous cell carcinoma skin cancer. Recent studies have concluded that chemicals contained in traditional sunscreens can be harmful to your body and the environment as they decompose--possibly contributing to skin cancer. Your skin is the largest organ your body has and what you put on your skin is absorbed directly into the bloodstream.

Now, we have not really been outside that much lately.
Well, let me clarify.
We have been on our porch, but that is about it...
The pool opens Memorial Day, so that is all about to change.
Not to mention, summer = the boys here = outside A L O T!!!!!

I was sent the MelanSol All Natural Sunscreen line for us to review, but have not had the chance to use it out in the sun yet...
Now, I have put it on...
I wanted to know how it felt...

There is a hint of some fragrance that I just can not figure out.
It is not a smell of typical sun protection.
The ingredients are all natural, as you can see by clicking HERE.
The MelanSol goes on like a lotion, it quickly absorbs into your skin, and it does NOT leave a greasy/oily feeling.
I actually put it on and then a few minutes later, I poured water on my arms to see how it would react to the water...
( I wish I could have jumped in a pool to check it out.)
The water quickly ran off of my skin, as if there was a small barrier to protect while swimming or sweating!

I love that with it being all natural, it is safe for children too!
Especially with Broxton having eczema, we are always super cautious with his lotions.
This seems like a great fit for the whole family!
Instead of having to carry around several different bottles, we can all share one!

Dress Your Imagination with Mrs. Butterworth's - Review

Remember when I shared with you about Mrs. Butterworth's coming to Atlanta?
Well, I never posted any pictures, because we ended up not being able to go.
I really hated that, as I wanted to see all the cute bottles and all the fun festivities.
Not to mention, pancakes in the park sounded so yummy!

Even though we were not able to make it, we were still able to share in the delight of Mrs. Butterworth's yummy goodness!
Now, I have not ventured out to make the pancakes yet, as I just get a bit nervous...
:) I know, I know!
But, the other day, Marc made breakfast for us all...
(My brother was visiting, so I was quick to let him know that this was not normal breakfast!)
Tell me, doesn't it just look great?
Yes, there are blueberry pancakes there, but hint hint, they were frozen...
I don't want you thinking that Marc just whipped up a batch really quick to out do me!
Look at how great Mrs. Butterworth's looks... Sitting there all nice and pretty in her dress...
(Did you know that you can head over to Mrs. Butterworth's facebook page and print out printable accessories to decorate her? Also, you can print a plain dress that you then allow your creative juices to flow and design? Talk about a fun breakfast treat!)
Even Broxton is getting a taste of the great taste...
Just ignore the piece that is falling, no worries, he quickly saved it!

Hint Hint------- Father's Day is not to far from here, why not plan to treat him with breakfast in bed? :) I bet he would love it!

Hang out with Mrs. Butterworth's by following her on Facebook and Twitter.

Have or Know a College Grad? Great information - Guest Post

I just received this email and thought it was too good not to share with you all.
My brother will be graduating next year, so this is good to remember!!!!
I do think that these are all great ideas!!!
Hope you can use the information!

Resume Service
The first thing employers see is an applicant's resume and cover letter. Unfortunately, the style of these documents has become more complex in recent years. Graduates won't get noticed using the old method of simply listing experience by date. Cover letters are now approaching works of art, mentioning much more than that applicant is interested in the job and is a good team player, trustworthy and a hard worker.

A resume service will create updated documents so subsequent resumes and cover letters live up to modern standards. Costs run roughly $100 to $200, depending on the services you desire. It's worth paying extra to have an expert explain the latest tricks and how graduates can alter these documents for each job. Sites like ResumeMyCareer can help you compile a professional and competitive resume at an affordable cost.

Home Furnishings
After living with cinder-block bookshelves and saggy mattresses for four years or, worse yet, being surrounded by their childhood furniture while living at home, graduates might appreciate an upgrade on everything from a couch to kitchen implements especially those moving into a new apartment to be closer to their new 9 to 5 job. You might also put together a basket of upscale bed and bath products so the grad can finally dump their dollar-store shampoo and soap.

Gift Cards
The 2011 crop of college graduates faces more debt than any other generation, so money is always a welcome gift especially to help them get through that first, unstable post-school year. Grads not comfortable with the idea of asking directly for money can create a gift card registryat to receive gift cards from hundreds of merchants in a variety of categories from apparel to food, gas and much more.

Job Interview Clothing
Suits can be overkill in some places, unless the graduate lives in a big city or is looking for a management position. Most employers will expect something a bit more casual these days. Men should have a dress shirt, pants and shoes with a matching tie and, perhaps, a sports coat. Women will need a demure outfit of skirt and blouse or dress with basic pumps. A coordinated jacket would nicely complete the outfit.

Foreign Language Lessons
College graduates face a tough job market and with high unemployment rates, that means more experienced competition. Given any opportunity to improve his or her skill set, grads can make themselves more marketable to potential employers depending on the position. Consider gifting Spanish lessons (Rosetta Stone is an effective and affordable option) or perhaps a GMAT review course for help towards MBA school admissions.

Backpacks and messenger bags are great for toting books and water bottles, but grads will have a better chance of securing a job when they show up looking sophisticated. A soft-sided briefcase with room for a laptop, resume binder and lunch will give any job seeker a more professional appearance.

With instant email access & GPS navigation, a smartphone will keep recent grads connected with potential employers & recruiters so they never miss an interview opportunity or an offer. Not to mention, the various apps that offer banking on-the-go, cheap dinner recipes andlocation-based drink specials to help make their lives a little easier.

Jim Furyk and Childrens Miracle Network - Guest Post

2010 PGA Tour Player of the Year Launches New Miracle BirdiesProgram

to Raise Funds for Children’s Hospitals

SALT LAKE CITY (April 28, 2011)—Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® (, a charity that raises funds for 170 children’s hospitals across North America, announced today a new partnership with 2010 PGA Tour Player of the Year and 2010 FedEx Cup champion Jim Furyk. Furyk has named Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals as his charity of choice for the next two years.

To kick off the partnership, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and Jim Furyk are launching Miracle Birdies, a new fundraising program in which individuals, groups and sponsors can make a monetary pledge for each time Furyk makes a birdie during his tournament play in 2011. Each individual’s entire donation will be donated to their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Individuals can participate by signing up at

“I am honored to be partnering with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in the important cause of raising money for children’s hospitals,” said Furyk. “Through our ongoing support of one such hospital—Wolfson Children’s Hospital in Florida—my wife and I have witnessed many of the miracles that happen through the generosity of others. My hope is that together we can all create many more through the Miracle Birdies program.”

“Jim Furyk is committed to our cause of saving the lives of children across North America, and we are appreciative of his support and the generosity of fans who will contribute to the Miracle Birdies program,” said John Lauck, President and CEO of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. “Through Jim’s extraordinary talent and career success, he will be a strong voice in motivating his supporters, sponsors and other individuals and groups to raise funds for sick children at hospitals in communities across North America.”

Fundraising through the 2011 Miracle Birdies campaign began in April at The Heritage PGA TOUR golf tournament and will conclude in October at the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Classic in Orlando, Fla. In addition to supporting the Miracles Birdies program, Furyk will sport the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ logo on his hat during tournament play.

AnnieWear Makes a Difference - Review

I was so happy to hear about an amazing company,AnnieWear.
Not only do they love animals, they put it forward in caring for them!!!!
We want to one day have a dog, but not now...
I just do not think that we are ready...
So, until then...
Broxton can wear AnnieWear and we are all happy! :)

It is nice to know that there are companies like AnnieWear out there that helps share the love of animals, with the love of caring for animals too!

From their site:

We created AnnieWear to offer the best selection of animal-themed baby and toddler clothing and gifts. We cater to people looking for a unique gift for a special occasion, something that will make their gift stand out and their gift recipient appreciative.

Our mission, and what makes AnnieWear so special, is that portions of all AnnieWear sales are donated to animal rescue programs around the country. Our goal is to create a way to give back to animals that so desperately need help. At AnnieWear, the more we sell, the more we can give.

Now, with a name like AnnieWear, you would probably think that they only sell clothing...
Nope! That is not the case!
They sell a little of this and more of that!
They have shirts and pants, shoes and belts...
But, they also have books and toys.
Blankets and Towels!
(Price's are reasonable too! Can't beat that!)

Just think, when you buy from AnnieWear, you are not only giving a great gift to the one you love, but you are also donating to an animal rescue program!!!
(A gift that keeps on giving... GREAT!)

So, what did we get to review?
Take a look at Broxton in his new shirt from AnnieWear!

It is really soft and I guess super comfortable!
I think he is quite handsome in it, but that could just be me!
Broxton was NOT happy when it was time to take it off!
Even after washing, the color was great...
The feel was still soft...
So far so good!
I think that the cute thing about this is not just the shirt...
But what the shirt says...
It says "Woof," but it also says it is 7 different languages!
So, you can teach them other languages without it being boring!!!
How cute is this?
Oh, and if olive green isn't your thing...
You can also purchase this in cardinal color!

Since you know you are in love with the cuteness, head on over and like them on facebook!

Frecklebox- Review and Giveaway

I have been following several blogs for quite some time now.
Not only do I blog and host giveaways, I also enter quite a few as well!

There is one company that I have tried to win and I have just not been able to be the lucky one...
Until NOW!
I just LOVE personalized gifts, but I can not really justify buying one just because.
I mean, yeah... I am excited that today is Monday and all, but that doesn't mean we are running out to celebrate!
I was so excited to know that I would be getting to review an item from Frecklebox!

I know, I had planned on looking into getting Broxton something from them for Christmas, so I had my eyes on a particular item.
If you think about it, Broxton is not a popular name that you will see already listed on the personalized gifts...
Nope, I knew we would not be running to the store to grab something!
Just what was it that I wanted so bad?

The My Name Is... Personalized Book.
This book is just too cute!!!

Not only do you personalize it with their name, you can also make the first page just for them.
You write a message to them, and there you go !!!
The color literally JUMPS off the pages!
The fact that Broxton hears his name on every page...

Of course, I had to let my mom see it.
She loved it just as much as we did!
To the point that she needed to know where we got it, so she could remember it for when she needs to get gifts!!!!

Get this -
They have recently came out with a new book!
Memoir of Me!
It is a personalized story of you and your child!
(Head over and look, too sweet!)

Not only does Frecklebox sell Personalized Books, they sell SO - MUCH- MORE!!!!
I tell you what, if I was still in school, I would be begging for one of their clipboards!
I think that the lunch boxes are just simply adorable...
But, I think I would rather use it as decoration than for their lunch! LOL, I know!!!!
Last thing, get ready...
Personalized Coloring Books!
I think that we need to get Broxton the cars one...
But not yet, it is still just Monday...
Maybe Christmas?

Okay, I know I said Last thing..
but this was just too amazing to pass up from sharing...
I was over visiting their facebook page...
When I saw a customer mention that her lunchbox had broken.
She mentioned that she thought they weren't strong enough for preschoolers...
(Talk about a bummer for me... I thought)
How about they responded to her and mentioned that they have improved their lunch boxes... That if she emailed them her information, they would try to find her order and reproduce it for her!
Of course, I had to read it to Marc!
Talk about a company that really stands behind their products!!!!

Now, are you ready?!
One Lucky Winner will win $40 Gift Certificate to Frecklebox.

***** Winner can not have won or hosted a review for Frecklebox in the last 90 days*****

Arm and Hammer Power Gel Turns One - Review

Did you know that Arm and Hammer released the first Gel Detergent...
We had the chance to check it out...
and I have to say, I am liking it!
The thickness of it being GEL makes me feel like there is more product to get my clothes clean!
Not to mention that I am enjoying the scent of it!
Our clothes are coming out clean, but luckily it has not had any hard to tackle stains, YET!
It is called Arm and Hammer Power Gel Laundry Detergent and it is turning one...

You know what that means?
(* They are calling it a Gel- ebration! Cute, I know!!!!)

To celebrate their first birthday, Arm and Hammer Power Gel has decided to hold a contest!
Enter a messy photo of your little one celebrating their first birthday...
Upload their photo with a 50 word or less caption.
(You have until June 15, 2010 so pick out a good one!)

Then, on July 18, 2010 the top 5 finalists will be announced on their site.
After that, the real party starts!!!
Consumers will then have the chance to go to the Arm and Hammer site to vote on their favorite picture, until July 31, 2010.
The grand prize winner will win "The Ultimate Kids Birthday Party," a professionally planned birthday party (by Jennifer Gilbert) valued at up to $5,000!
Now what about those other 4 finalists?
They will win a years supply of Arm and Hammer Power Gel Laundry Detergent (awarded as 12 coupons) and a $250 party supply gift certificate.
They are even giving away 500 coupons for a bottle of Power Gel!!!

I really wish that I could enter this contest, but for Broxton's birthday, we took his shirt off.
I was worried that I would not be able to get the stain out, so I did not risk it!
Too bad that Arm and Hammer Power Gel wasn't available then!!!!

So, head on over to enter...
Let me know if you do, I would love to see your picture!!!!!
Good Luck!!!!

Wordless Wednesday - Silly Daddy!

So, the other day, I went in to check on Broxton during naptime...
This was what I found:
Sweet sleeping boy, right?
Look closer...
Okay, let me back it up a bit for you...
Can you see now?
Daddy had made his bed into a tent!!!
LoL, yes!!!!
He tied the blanket up top of the bed so that Broxton was sleeping in a tent!!!!

Silly boys!!!!

Growing Pains- Season Two On DVD

I am not sure if Growing Pains was a show you watched regularly, or if it was just an every now and then kind of show for you...
It came on from 1985 to 1992.
I can not honestly remember if I watched it when they were new episodes, or if I just caught them as reruns...
I can tell you that I LOVED to watch it!!!!
Kirk Cameron was always such a cutie, gotta love the trouble that Mike Seaver was always getting into!!!
And Jason? Yeah, looking back, they had a pretty hot dad!!!!
Alan Thicke doesn't really look like he has aged at all!
Never mind that there were many stars that had small roles on Growing Pains throughout the years.. (You can google to see what names stick out to you. I am just saying, Leonardo DiCaprio.)

Anyways, Growing Pains Season Two was just released on DVD this past April.
I forgot how funny the show was!
Oh, and get this...
I was watching it when we got a delivery from UPS.
Our driver is super nice and always talks to Broxton, this particular time, he asked what he was watching, I laughed and admitted...
"Busted! Mama is watching Growing Pains!"
He laughed and commented that I was going old school!

While watching and remembering what a crazy group of kids the Seaver's had...
I also remembered why this show was so good.
It was a NORMAL family.
Mom and Dad working, kids causing trouble, getting punished and being, well, KIDS!

I was happily surprised that in one episode Mike was in school.
(Okay, not surprised he was in school... Stay with me... I am talking about the teacher!)
The teacher from that episode looked familiar and then it hit me...
He was the same teacher from that OTHER show, Just the Ten of Us.
I had no clue, until reading Wikipedia that Just the Ten of Us was a spin off!

It has been fun watching, and I have to admit...
Now, I want to start from the beginning and watch them all!!!!

Go ahead and sing it with me.....

"Show me that smile again!
Don't waste another minute on your cryin.
We're nowhere near the end.
The best is ready to begin!!!!"

Congratulations…you’re fired. Mike (Kirk Cameron) receives a car from his pleased parents after he’s named Employee of the Month. (So how’s he going to tell them he’s been canned?) Mike’s not the only one with secrets. Brainy Carol (Tracey Gold) wants everyone to think she has a romantic extracurricular life with a hunky football hero. And what’s up with 10-year-old Ben (Jeremy Miller) and those 67 calls to a sex line? (No, it’s not what you might think.) These events don’t all happen at the same time, but they do all happen at the same place: the Season 2 home-sweet-ho-ho-home of the Seavers – dad Jason (Alan Thicke), mom Maggie (Joanna Kerns), three on-the-grow kids. Jason works as a psychiatrist. You think maybe it’s time to add some family appointments to his calendar?

Just a quick update with Blogger

As I posted the other day, the issue with blogger has set me back.
I scheduled several posts of reviews and giveaways...
Well, when blogger went down, it totally messed me up.

First of all, I had tons of reviews and giveaways that are still missing...
(Actually, 2 have shown up in my edit post box, but still...
LOTS are still gone.
Besides that, I could not get on blogger Thursday or Friday, so that was 2 more days of posting that was not available to me...

That leads me to today!
I have been out of town, so I was not able to play catch up.....
BUT A WARNING for you....

So, get ready for great posts...
Full of reviews, giveaways and of course pictures of BROXTON!!!!

But, before I get to posting and making up..
Let me share today with you...

Gold's Gym is offering a free 7 day trial membership.
So, Marc and I went today.
Took a tour.
Love it!
Then, tonight....
I took my first "spinning" class.
Talk about FUN!!!
Yeah, I am hurting a bit.... but it was great!
After that, Marc and I enjoyed their Group Power Class.

It was fun as well...
I think I am going to like it.
I need to get in shape.
I know I do...
I need to be healthy...
I WANT to be healthy.

So, I ask for you all to pray for me to continue to be motivated and to continue to enjoy this...
Of course, I will keep you updated and let you know how things are going...

It felt nice for the staff members to say they were proud that I did not give up...
and that I did TWO classes my first day!
Other than that...
We got in the car and Marc gave me a kiss and said he was so proud of me!!!
Can't beat that!!!!!

Okay, get ready.....
Tomorrow, the posts are coming!!!!
