For the Wino In Your Life : @WineWear Review

One of my best friends absolutely LOVES wine.To the point that another friend of ours always gets her a couple nice bottles every year for her birthday. Now, instead of giving a nice bottle of wine and a card, why not dress it up and make it extra memorable?
For Fathers Day, I was sent a couple cute "Wine Wear" greeting cards for me to share with you. Now, don't worry... They have more than just Fathers Day! This is the one we reviewed: If you have a couple getting married and you want to buy them a nice bottle of wine, you can get the Wine Wear to go with it!
They make one sporting a Tux or you can get one with a Wedding Dress!
( I personally like the Bridal Bouquet the best!)
Now, for the few who still take host/hostess gifts when going to someones house... They have several cards for all occasions!
Christmas Party?
Check - Between Santa, Ornaments or a few more, you are sure to put a smile on faces walking in the door!
If your family is the one that enjoys wine at Thanksgiving, sp…

Picture Perfect Photo Contest - B&W

I hope that you have noticed by now that I am trying to add more photos to my blog.I would love any input you might have... But please, lets leave it at constructive criticism!

This post is linking up at Ordinary Miracles and the Crazy 8. She hosts a monthly photo challenge. For the month of June, the challenge is Black and White.
So, here is my Black and White entry... Tell me what you think, please!

We love being outside!!!

We love being outside!
I am so glad that we do not live in our old apartment...There are multiple reasons that I am not even going to get into, but the one I am talking about now is that our old one did not have a porch. This one does!

So, what all do we do?
We play with REALLY COOL TOYS!!!
(Sprig Trucks Review Coming Soon!) We watch the cars go by and eat our snacks while drinking our water. Oh yeah, we have to yell "HEY!" to everything that passes...
Cars, Trucks, People, Birds, Dogs... You name it! We sing and dance!!! You KNOW we play with all of our cars!!! We play with play-doh! And of course, MORE play-doh...
Check back Sunday for even more of what we do... Oh, and this time... IT'S GONNA GET MESSY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What do you do during the summer?

Where do you blog?

In my first apartment, we just threw the desk in our "eating area."You know, the little square where you put your dining room furniture... Since you do not have an actual space... It worked, since it wasn't like we were having big get togethers over dinner!

My second apartment, I made sure to have a "sun room" and that was where I put my desk.
Oh, let me back up.. My first desk, I do not even know where it came from, but I had it a million years!
My second desk was a little thrown together thing I picked up from somewhere... Nothing nice like the bush furniture you can see online!

Now, we have this big monstrosity of a desk now... So big, it took all the strength Marc and Mark had to move it in.. Plus a hand truck!!!
Only thing is, it isn't moving until we do!
No rearranging here!!!

Marc has said that with the time I am online, he would love for us to have an office space for us whenever we get a house. Meaning, we can go looking for office desks and office furniture!

A Guide is a Guide? Or Not? Review

I hate history. I would say that I hate learning, but that is not the case. I just can not get into history, it just seems rather...
Boring. I tried and I tried...
In high school. Nope. College? Not a chance. I can smile and say that when Broxton needs help in history when he gets older, he is lucky that Marc LOVES it. He loves watching all sorts of history stuff.
He googles it all the time. Me? Uhhh, not so much!

Remember when I reviewed The Complete Idiot's Guide to The Best Family Destinations? Well, little did I know that they have a competitor in the Complete Guide for Dummies. How lucky for Marc... Because of this, we were able to get TWO history books for him to take a look at.
Okay, he did more than look. He started actually READING. If you know Marc, he doesn't sit down and pick up a book that often. He just has other things to do...
Of course, I figured that I could take a look at both and see which one I liked better. First, I started with The Complete Idiot's Guide to American…

Zippies - Just the Right Pal to Have Hanging Around

When the boys come for the summer, you can only imagine the water bottles and sometimes drama that ensue's over who's drink is who.You see, all the water bottles look the same. I really do not like writing their names on the side, as it ends up getting on their hands...

So, I was quite happy to hear about Zippies ID Labels! Now, these are not just any label. Better than that, they can be placed on just about anything!
You know how some labels are... They are stickers and you put them there and that is that... Well, why would you want to put one of those on a disposable water bottle?
With Zippies, YOU CAN!!!!
Let me tell you about Zippies! They are just the cutest!
Zippies are actually little plastic pieces. One one side, it is a cute character... On the other, a place for name and information.
Of course, when we got them...
Broxton thought they were toys! First of all, we had been at the doctor all morning, so he thought he had a stethoscope for the house... Then, I showed him how we would w…

Aloha Friday - Phone Hours?

Linking up with Kailani at Island Life...
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 this week:
What is the latest time you allow your kids to receive phone calls?

My answer:
Growing up, our phone did not ring past 9:00

Oh, and for those that made a visit last week...
I did cut my hair!
Check out my pictures HERE!!!!

EEZE Does IT - Review

As long as I can remember, I have always dreaded the summer...Of course, the main reason is because I hate being hot... But the other reason? I ALWAYS get a summer cold!!

Luckily, I have not had to worry about that yet... But I am sure it will be coming my way soon. This time, I will be ready!!

I have seen Cold-EEZE, but I have never tried it. I now have it in my cabinet!!
I wanted to do a post talking about how wonderful it is, but I have not used it yet... So, I can not say. I will tell you that I am impressed with the different flavors that are offered. (I always think Cherry/Grape/Citrus) Not this time!
They have Cherry. but also offer others..
Including Strawberries and Cream... Maybe even Mint Frost!!!
For those wanting Sugar Free, they also have Pomegranate! Having it all covered, they even offer Sugar Free Chocolate Mint that is safe for Diabetics!
I am sure you are wondering why I am excited for the chance to try out the Cold EEZE brand...
Well, it says that Cold EEZE helps to make the cold …

I Spy - 365 * Railroad Tracks

I just thought I would join in with Mommytography's 365 Sunday Assignment this week.I know I was doing the whole 365 on another site, but it just sort of fell off... So, this week, the assignment on her blog was RAILROAD tracks!

You KNOW we can do that!!!!
So, here you go:

Please tell me what you think about my pictures...

Sprig Toys - Eco Friendly and WALLET Friendly Too! Review

So, I recently learned of this company, Sprig Toys. Yeah, I know some of you must think that I just have to live under a rock, but hey...
I am still learning about everything out there!

Anyways, enough of my learning... For now!
Well, I was excited to see what the toy was going to look like... They talk about being Eco Friendly, Battery Free, Kid Powered... What was this going to be?
I was so excited...
No, make that VERY IMPRESSED when the toy came for review. Marc was equally impressed and Broxton was ready to play!
I was hanging out with a friend and I immediately had to tell her about it... She just HAS to get some for her son! We chose the Dino Adventure Rig.
Tell me this is not just the cutest? It has a mommy dino, a baby dino, an adventure truck and an adventure guide!!!!
I thought it was just too cool because it is made with recycled paper and reclaimed wood!
It is even paint free, as they add dye during the production process!!!

How cool is that?! If you ask me, Very!
Broxton loves to play …

W/W - MY Haircut

If you read my Aloha Friday Post... I asked if anyone had ever donated to Locks of Love or Wigs for Kids...
Well, look who is: ME!!!!!!!!!!!!
This was taken right as I was leaving to go get it cut:
The picture I took RIGHT after it was cut will not work on here... So, I snapped this really quick... I know it is horrible, we were at the pool all day... BUT, I wanted to show it was WAY shorter!!!!
I am so happy, as my hair is THICK and that means SUPER HOT during the summer... Also, now that it is thinned out like crazy.........
I do not have to throw it in a pony tail 24/7 :)
Now, enough of me...
Here is a picture of Broxton for you.
He is fine... Just likes showing off his "Bo-Bo" Want to know how he got it? Being a typical boy...
Playing and climbing!
He "falled on a tree" as he says. He was climbing a tree and fell on the part where they cut a branch off... It looks like it is going to leave a scar, but he loves showing it off. He even pulls his shirt up to show strangers where …

Green Dragon Herbals Makes It Happen! GIVEAWAY!

When you visit the Green Dragon Herbals website, you can not help to notice: Flavored Massage Oils Flavored Powders
(Along with many other products, those just jumped to me first!)
As tempted as I was to try the Flavored Powders, I decided to be sweet to Marc. Hey, Fathers Day is around the corner! I went with the Commando Lotion. I have mentioned many a time how Marc has super dry skin... Add to that it is summer time, he is working outside and sweating... Needless to say, he comes home and showers... and then puts on lotion!
With the Commando Lotion, we are both happy! It is described as: Commando is a MANLY scented body lotion that will not only smell good to a man BUT women love to smell it on you! It's rough, it's tough, GO COMMANDO!
Marc likes the way it feels on him. He says it feels extra moisturizing. He also loves that it absorbs nice, without leaving a greasy feeling to his skin.
I like it because it smells WHOOOHOOO! Really, the smell... It is as though they took the lotion and add…
