Weekend Threads - Review


I have discussed my years working in a sports bar...
There are times now when I see something and wish that I was still in that atmosphere, just to tell others about it.
But really, would I want to go back?
No... I love where I am at now.
That does not stop me from still wanting to share with others!

That being said, I came across a company, Weekend Threads and I IMMEDIATELY thought about the bar days.
Back then, every day was Friday.
At least that is how people seemed to party.
Never mind that they had jobs, hey... we all did!

I was able to review one for Broxton.
Think about it...
"It's Always The Weekend" is a great summary for a two year old!
Broxton LOVES wearing his...
To the point that he did not want me to take it off of him!
I also received one for my friend Cindy to wear...
She is a bartender, so I thought it would be perfect for her line of work!
Talk about a conversation starter!!!!
You can even get a customized It's Always the Weekend shirt to say wherever you want...
Like with Cindy, she works at Loco's...
They can make the shirts say "It's Always The Weekend - Loco's"
Or you can make it for whatever you want it to say...
Maybe you are going on vacation to Hawaii...
Just get your shirts made, "It's Always The Weekend - Hawaii"
Or Grandma's or Paw-Paw or whatever makes you the happiest!
How cool is that?!

So, for the Weekend lover in your life...
Head on over and purchase a bit of Weekend Wear!
If your dad is a fan of golf, why not order him one with the golf cart on it for Fathers Day?!

Thinking ahead with Cymax Baby Bedding


One thing I wish I would have thought more about when deciding on Broxton’s room was what would eventually happen with the furniture when he grew up!
I have always said that I wanted to have two children…
So, I knew I would need items that would stand the “test of time.”
Well, not only that… But I did not want to buy something that was going to fall apart!

I had several friends tell me, “You do not need to spend money on a changing table.”
I knew that I wanted one…
My brother had one, all the other babies I knew had one…
Where else was I going to change his diaper and get him dressed?
Put the lotion on him after his bath?
I know some people use their dresser top for that, but Broxton did not have that kind of dresser.
He had the dresser that my Nana gave to me…
It was the tall one, that had the top that opened UP..
Not a place to change a baby.
But, what would I use it for after that time period?

We did think ahead when we were looking at baby cribs though.
I knew that they had tons out on the market.
I knew that when we finally did buy one, I wanted to get one of the convertible cribs that you could use for more than the first couple years.


We looked and looked and the one we went with, well…
It should last us for quite some time!
It started out as a baby bed, with the mattress level being able to be moved…
Now that Broxton is a “big boy” we took the bed and are now using it as the toddler bed.
Once he is older, we can then turn it into a twin bed!
Talk about getting our moneys worth!

Looking ahead to whenever we have our next baby.
If / When… You know what I mean!

I have been looking online at all that is out there.
I was recently made aware of the DaVinci Kalani brand of furniture.
Right now, you can actually purchase the set that includes both the 4-in-1 Convertible Crib and the changing table/dresser.
I really like this, as the changing table is actually the dresser!
Talk about clearing up space in the room…
Also not having a big changing table to find what to do with after you no longer need it…
If you think about it…
You buy this set and you are good to go..
The bed grows with your child, as well as the changing table/dresser combo!


I feel as thought I learned alot the first time around...
I think that whenever we have another baby, I will be more prepared!

So, what did you do when you decorated your nursery?
Did you go for multi functional furniture?

Crazy Days of Summer - Week One : Photo Challenge


There is no hiding my love of photography.
I love taking pictures and looking at pictures.
There are so many great blogs out there that have amazing photos on it.

One blog that I found a while back is Alicia's.
Her photography is awesome and I am telling you...
If she ever moves near us, I am so going to save money and hope that she says she would love to do a photo shoot with Broxton. :)

I have decided to try and link up with her Crazy Days of Summer Photo Challenge..
This week: Flowers.

Aloha Friday - Lemonade?


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:
Did you have a lemonade stand when you were a child?

My answer:
I do not think I did... So, mom... Did I?!


Our babies are growing!

Ha! Did I get your attention yet?
Marc saw the commercial for the Topsy Turvy and he has been dying to get one...
So, I told my mom about it and that was what my brother, Ashton got Marc for Christmas.
We FINALLY decided to put it out and see if it would actually work.
(We have the strawberry one too, but are waiting to use it... Can not find strawberries yet!)
The above picture was the day we hung it up...
Just the plant in the Topsy Turvy...
Just a couple days later...
We had babies!!!
This was a couple weeks into the growing stage:
This was taken just a day or two ago.
Notice that we have 3 really good sized ones coming along...
There are a few more babies starting to grow too!
Broxton enjoys going out to check on the "baby matoes," as he calls them.
We also planted another plant in a pot/bucket thing..
The same day!
We FINALLY have two teeny tiny babies starting to grow, but NOTHING like the Topsy Turvy!

Marc is so impressed, he is already wanting to get another one going!

No, this is not a sponsored post or a review or anything...
I just wanted to share our Topsy Turvy results with you!

This would be a great gift idea for anyone that loves tomatoes!!!
(You can buy them anywhere that you see the AS SEEN ON TV stuff sold!)

Update:
I am working with TV Top Ten on a blog post...
As I was looking around, I saw that they carry the Topsy Turvy...
So, you can click HERE to order the Topsy Turvy from the TV TOP TEN Website.

***** TV Top Ten did not sponsor this post,
I just wanted to let you know where you could get this.
Our Topsy Turvy was a gift from my brother...
and the Strawberry Topsy Turvy, that we have not used yet, was from my mom!*****

Just a few things...

One of the Lil Teammates Winners had recently won from another blog..
So, we have a new winner!!!

I will be hosting a review for Gourmet Gift Baskets soon.
(I have reviewed for them in the past and I am really looking forward to this one coming up.)
Working with Gourmet Gift Baskets in the past, I was sent an email about what they did to help out in Joplin.

With all of the devastation in Joplin...
Gourmet Gift Baskets donated a HUGE gift basket (weighed more than 70 pounds) to give to those helping with the recovery in that area. You can read about it HERE.
With that in mind, they also sent out a couple websites where all of us can donate to help :

Food Bank Donations -

http://www.ozarksfoodharvest.org/


American Red Cross -

https://american.redcross.org/site/SPageServer?pagename=ntld_corpmicrosite&s_company=stateofmissouri-pub


Volunteering -

http://www.211missouri.org/GiveHelp.aspx



***** I am sharing this because I know all of us want to know how to help. I was not compensated in any way for sharing this. I have worked with Gourmet Gift Baskets in the past and was sent the email along with others to know how we could help out. *****


Illumenature Candle Company - Review

I heart candles!
If I could have one lit in every single room at all times, I would...
But that just is not safe...
So, I light them in the room I am in...
and I enjoy every single minute of it.
There is just something about candles...
The mood it sets, the aroma it releases...

I had been hearing great things about illumenature candle company.
I heard that they were wonderful candles.
Many seem to find them a bit addictive...
You know what that meant?
It meant I just HAD to try out this company!

Lucky for me, they just released their new scent...
BABY POWDER!
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
The smell of a baby is just one of the best smells there is, am I right?!
To think that I could light a candle and enjoy it all day long...
Heaven!

Now, let me tell you a little about illumenature.
They are hand poured 100% soy wax candles!!
Get this... even the glass jar is made in the USA!

Illumenature can even do custom orders!
If you want to have candles for a party, just contact them...
They will make custom labels and everything!
HOW FUN!!!!

I was able to review the baby powder candle, but guess what, the label was in coordination with the March of Dimes!
It also had a purple ribbon on it, instead of blue or pink.
If you have a loved one that recently had a baby...
or is having a baby...
or if you or anyone you know loves the smell of a baby...
BUY the baby powder candle!
You can even purchase a boy or girl one..
(Meaning, blue ribbon or pink ribbon!)

Illumenature has all sorts of different scents.
Yes, they have lavender and french vanilla..
But, think about getting a Banana Nut Bread Candle...
Maybe even a Garden Mist or Campfire?
Don't the names just sound so inviting?

With the simple glass jar and silver lid...
This candle is sure to be a great addition to every room!
We even have the lavender candle in our bedroom!

What a great scent to go to sleep smelling!
(No, we do not let it burn while we are sleeping... Just some times before.)

I also noted that when I put the candle lid in our bathroom, it filled the room with the scent of the candle!
The smell is just that good!
Not strong, just perfect!

Of course, Broxton loves them...
As he is always asking, "I mell, please?!"

This would be a great gift for any college graduates you might now...
Or the "I am thinking of you" gifts that I love to bring up!

I know that we will have a baby powder candle at any baby shower I host...
What a nice way to bring the mood to the room...
and a great reminder to the mommy to be!!!

Just an FYI, right now...
If you buy a 20 oz baby powder candle... you get an 8 oz for free!
Also, until June 30th....
Use code "JUMPIN" when ordering from their website...
You will get 20 % off your order!!!

Topricin - Review

I have discussed the fact that Marc works on his feet all the time.
That is why we are always looking for products that will bring relief to him after a long day at work or drill.
When I read about Topricin lotion, I knew I wanted to try it out for Marc.

But then I read more...
My mom has carpel tunnel and has been struggling a bit...
Come to find out, this works great for those suffering with Carpel Tunnel.
My dad has struggled with Gout for many years...
To be honest, he has not mentioned it lately, so I am not sure if he still gets it...
but if so, this works for that too!

I am telling you, it seems as though Topricin has everyone covered!
They even make a junior brand that is great for those with eczema!
(Remember, Broxton has eczema, and it flares in the summer... We will see how it works!)
Classic Topricin features a soothing combination of eleven homeopathic biomedicines to safely and effectively treat pain associated with arthritis, carpal tunnel, fibromyalgia, back, neck and shoulder pain, sports and trauma injuries, muscle strains and sprains and first aid for inset bites, bruises, scrapes and minor burns. Topricin reduces swelling, stiffness, numbness, tingling and burning associated with soft tissue injuries and more. Odorless and greaseless, Topricin is now patented for the treatment of neuropathy.
Topricin Junior is pediatrician-recommended and formulated for a child’s delicate skin. Topricin Jr. won the 2010 Parent Tested/Parent Approved (PTPA™) Seal of Approval. Whatever the mishap, bump, scrap, bruise or boo-boo, this paraben and petroleum-free formula treat pain associated with a wide range of children’s injuries and delivers quick and rapid relief. Gentle on skin, it is effective for treating minor burns, bug bites, and skin conditions, including eczema.Topricin Foot Therapy Cream is podiatrist-recommended and is formulated to treat foot and ankle pain, including ankle strains and sprains, plantar fasciitis and other heel pain, Achilles tendinitis, bunion pain, gout, nerve pain, shin splints, leg cramps, impact injuries and bruising and it helps reduced swelling (edema) of ankles and feet. And the moisturizing formula offers soothing relief after a night of dancing or wearing high heels.

You can purchase Topricin at several local stores, but you can also just order from their online store!
(They even have gift baskets!)
Think about it, for your dad who has EVERYTHING... why not get a couple tubes of this and wrap it up with a set of golfballs?!

Actually, remember how Marc and I were checking out the local gym?
I am not going to lie...
Going for 2 hours a day to different classes, I was a bit sore towards the end.
I had Marc rub the Topricin on me.
It felt great!
There was no odor, so that was a great thing...
Also, it did not leave a greasy residue, so I was not worried about it messing up my clothes!

I can not wait for my mom to give this a try ...
She has been needing something to help with her Carpel Tunnel, hopefully this will be just what she needs!

Besides it bringing pain relief, I am happy to say that Topricin is safe for everyone...
Diabetics, women who are pregnant, women who are nursing and children!!!

One more thing, if you were debating on if you should get this or not...
It is MADE IN THE USA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please follow Topricin on Facebook and Twitter!

Neutrogena Wet Skin - Review


I have finally figured out part of my problem...
I am lazy.
Or maybe I just get to excited.
Or maybe both.

Okay, I am sticking with getting too excited, the lazy just doesn't sound that great...
Especially when you hear what I am talking about.

You know how I have complained about getting sunburned?
Mostly it is because I do not remember to apply sunscreen.
But then again...
SOMETIMES, I do apply...
But then, I forget to reapply.

Think about it...
Who really wants to get sunscreen all over them...
Then wait like 20 minutes until they can get in the pool.
(That is another dislike I have)

I have found the quick and easy solution!
Neutrogena has read my mind!
They have... They REALLY have!

Let me tell you.
I received the new Neutrogena Wet Skin Sun Spray for review.
We went to the pool the other day.
I grabbed it and threw it in the bag with our towels.

We got to the pool and right as I went to get in the water, I remembered the spray!
I grabbed it and sprayed...
Shoulders, chest, back and face...
Then I got in...
We had fun, Broxton loved it...
After a bit, I got out to get the camera.
I had to get pictures of Broxton swimming.
Whoa, let me reapply.
(Now, I NEVER reapply, but for the sake of wanting to see if the whole apply on wetskin thing was going to work.)
Ummmmmmmmmm
How about after a day at the pool, you could not tell!
I was actually NOT burnt!
I was able to shower and sleep just fine that night!
MEANING --- NO SUNBURN!
Neutrogena has just saved me (and the whole house, if you want me to be honest) lots of pain and misery!
I already told Marc that this was going to be with us at all times!
When we go to the pool, the boys do not like to get burned...
but then they also HATE having to dry off!
I can not wait to see how happy they are when I can just spray them down!!!

Neutrogena has everyone covered too!
This new wet skin comes in SPF's of 30, 50, and 85.
They also have Wet Skin Kids in SPF 70.

Oh and get this...
If you order the sunscreen online you can save $2 per bottle!!!

Here is to a great summer!!!!

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Neutrogena and received sunscreen and other Neutrogena products as a thank you for my participation.

So, I took a taste...

Kinda like Jessica Simpson.. but that is for another day..
In dealing with that...

W/W - Uncle Ashton AGAIN




We have been blessed to have Uncle Ashton come and visit us again!
Looks as though Broxton LOVES being with him!!!
He just would not let him get to far away at any time!

The Glades - Review


I love summer time, as that is when we are at the pool almost every single day.
What I do not like about the summer is that ALL shows go to rerun mode...
Or just leave the air completely.

Marc and I were just talking about how all of our shows are pretty much over for the season..
So now what?

Lucky for me...
I heard several people mention how they watched a TV show called "The Glades."
I hated that people were going on and on about how good it was, yet I had never seen it!
What was I missing?!

Then, I actually had the opportunity to review it.
And review it, I did!
Marc and I watched one of the episodes.
We caught ourselves laughing at Jim and how he acted at times..
At that point, we knew...
We were really enjoying this show!
Then, we immediately watched another episode.

I called to ask my mom if she had ever seen the show, she had not, but wanted to see it.
Of course, I told her that as soon as I was finished watching, she would have to watch it...
The second season starts June 5Th...
I needed to be ready to go!

I watched all of them in the span of a few days...
It was just that good!

Want me to tell you about it?
Well...
Okay!

You see, long story short...
Jim moved to Florida from Chicago...
His work partner is the Medical Examiner, Carlos...
Now, Jim is the main character, but quite honestly...
Carlos cracks me up and just might be my favorite!

The one thing that does slightly bother me is that it has its "only on TV" moments...
As in, Callie..
Jim meets her and immediately they have a connection...
Which in turn leads to Jim telling her everything about every case he works...
Real life, I don't think so...
Isn't there something about confidentiality?!

Oh, and Callie's son..
He just sort of goes missing for about 5 episodes...
Not sure where he is, but he returns as quickly as he left!

Other than that..
I am ready for June 5Th..
(As is Marc, we just discussed it again today!)
June 5Th is the second season.
I am glad we were able to watch Season One and be caught up..
BUT, it really isn't one that you have to see every episode to know what is going on.
It is a great show, not a soap opera!

Now we have not watched the "extra's" on the DVD, yet..
But they have plenty of them!!!!
Order your copy now...
It ships June 14th!!!!
Let me know... Are you a fan of THE GLADES?

Description from the A & E site:
THE GLADES stars Australian actor Matt Passmore as Jim Longworth, an attractive, brilliant, yet hard to get along with homicide detective from Chicago who is forced into exile after being wrongfully accused of sleeping with his former captain’s wife. Longworth relocates to the sleepy, middle-of-nowhere town of Palm Glade, Florida, where the sunshine and golf are plentiful and crime is seemingly at a minimum. But this town outside the Florida Everglades isn’t quite as idyllic as he thought, as he finds people keep turning up murdered. Each case pulls Longworth off the golf course and reluctantly into his element as one of the sharpest homicide detectives in the field.

THE GLADES Season 1 DVD is loaded with exclusive special features including unaired deleted scenes, gag reel, behind-the-scenes footage, featurettes, director and cast commentaries.

Visine - Tired Eye - Review


If this is not something that we ALL could use, I am not sure what is!
I know that my eyes get tired of being on the computer so much.
Not to mention when I am playing on my phone.

I was happy to know that Visine has now made, Visine Tired Eye Relief.

From their site:

Product Description

  • Provides relief of burning, irritated, dry eyes
  • Soothes and revives tired, overworked eyes
  • Formulated with advanced HYDROBLEND® Moisturizers for up to 10 hours of comfort

Uses

  • For the temporary relief of burning, irritation, and discomfort due to dryness of the eye or exposure to wind or sun
  • For protection against further irritation


I have been using it in the afternoon when I am not on the computer, but I know I will be using it more once we are at the pool all the time.
Think about it:
Being in the pool.
Being in the sun.
All the pollutants/wind heading my way...
I noticed that when I put the drops in, it is like a bit of relief has been dropped in.
It is nice and soothing, not a burst of cool like some, but just moisture!

I did ask if it was safe for contacts...
(I have never found an eye drop that was, unless it was SPECIFIED.)
No, it isn't for contact wearers...
BUT, they have contact wearers covered too!
I wear contacts from time to time.
I used to wear them all the time, but working in the smoky sports bar sort of ended my 24/7 contact wearing years...
They have me covered when I choose to wear them though...
For contact days, Visine has Visine Total Eye Soothing Wipes.

From their site:

Product Description

  • SOOTHES WITHOUT THE RUB™
  • Cleans eye area & removes makeup
  • Removes irritants from around the eyes

Uses

  • Gently removes dust, pollen and debris
  • Cleans around the eyes
  • May also be used to remove makeup
  • Safe for sensitive eyes & contact lens users
  • Ophthalmologist- & Dermatologist-tested


I have not worn my contacts lately, but I did want to check out the soothing wipes.
They feel great!
Just imagine if you had dirt or something on your eye, instead of using your finger or a wet napkin, you can use this...
It just feels wonderful.
Not just water, but not soapy or oily.

Ha! I told my mom about these soothing wipes...
She is so excited, but I can not tell why...
Is it because it is "soothing wipes" for her as a contact wearer?
Or because they can also be used to remove makeup?
:) My mom is one of those that ALWAYS wears makeup..
You know, even if she is just sitting around the house.
I think she planned on being a movie star or something, you know.. since they even wear makeup in their SLEEP!
(Love ya mom!)

I think that both of these are wonderful products and I know that I will be using them both more often.

Affresh - "The Odor Stops Here." Review and Giveaway

Our washing machine keeps having this funky smell.
There is really no other way to put it.
Sometimes the clothes smell a bit funky, other times, it is not so noticeable.
It does not matter the type of laundry detergent...
It just smells... Well, FUNKY.

I have heard of all sorts of tricks to make the smell disappear, but I don't know.
Then, I heard about this company of cleaners, Affresh.
I thought that they just made a washing machine cleaner...
I was wrong.
They also make dishwasher/garbage disposal cleaners as well.

I wanted to give it a try...
I read on their site that they not only cover up the odor...
They eliminate it!

The Affresh Washing Machine Cleaner is "proven to penetrate, dissolve, remove or reduce odor causing residue from your washer."
It was really simple to use too, just throw the tablet in and go!
Now, I have not noticed the odor as strong as it once was...
Marc has not mentioned it at all, so it might just be in my head now...
In my opinion, SCORE one for the Affresh Tablet!

The thing I love the most was the Affresh Dishwasher/Garbage Disposal Cleaner.
I think I liked it the most because I could immediately smell the difference.
Not that our garbage disposal had some rank odor coming out of it, but when you drop the tablet in it, you immediately smell it!
You just throw the tablet in the garbage disposal, run the hot water slowly...
Turn on disposal for 15 seconds and you are done!
Talk about easy!

The dishwasher is just as simple!
Just throw one in the bottom of the dishwasher and one in the detergent compartment!
Then, turn on your dishwasher...
Doesn't get much easier than that!

It says that you only have to do it once a month too!
Pretty cool to me!
I like that you can purchase at places such as Kroger or Lowes!
Makes it easier to get, easier to use!!!!!

I am glad that I was able to try this out, as now I know we will continue using it.
I mean, who wants to walk around worried about smelling Funky?!
I know we don't!!!!

Of course, I already told my mom about it and she wants to try it out as well!
Looks like I will be taking some to her next time I see her!

Want to win a bit of Affresh for your house?
