Are you Red, White and Blue Ready? Review

Image
With the fourth of July right around the corner...You need to make sure you are ready for the fourth!

No, I am not talking about the sparklers/fireworks and beer... I am talking about the subtle ways to make a statement!

Red...
No need to go crazy with all the colors... Just a splash of red will make a BOLD statement!
Spice it up adding a splash on your lips... Or give yourself that well deserved mani/pedi before heading out to the pool for the day!
L’Oréal Paris Infallible™ Le Rouge Lipstick in Target Red ($8.99 at Target) conditions lips for long wearing color. ORLY Lacquer in Star Spangled ($7.50 at Ulta) delivers megawatt shine and classic color in a formula that’s free of DBP, toluene, formaldehyde and formaldehyde resin.
Speaking of heading to the pool... Keep the Red out.. Of your Eyes!!!
Throw a bottle of Visine Maximum Redness Relief in your pool bag! It soothes and protects your eyes while adding moisture for all day comfort! Instead of wearing a white shirt and worrying about it gettin…

Giveaway: Is Breakfast Rushed At Your House? Emerald Nuts Breakfast on the Go Review

Image
***** CONTEST HAS ENDED*****
I have never been one in my life to get up and have a nice big breakfast to eat.Never, not that I remember during childhood... Certainly not in college or since I have been married. We normally just have a bowl of cereal or a cereal bar or something...
Now, I have gotten up and made Marc breakfast and he has done the same for me.. But it is not a typical thing. We are always looking for quick and decent tasting.

I was excited to see that Emerald Nuts came out with a Breakfast on the Go. Not only is it easy to grab and eat on the run... IT TASTES GREAT!!!! They have Three Flavors: Breakfast, S'mores and Berry Nut Blends...
Of course, if I were to have bought it in the store, I would have grabbed the S'mores flavor...
(Being honest, I was disappointed with the marshmallow things, they were super hard, not what I was expecting at all! If they were not hard, I might have enjoyed this flavor more than I did.) I am so glad I was able to try them all first!
My favori…

Crazy Days of Summer Photo Challenge - Week Five - Light

Image
I am really enjoying the Crazy Days of Summer Challenge going on right now!
I know that Marc is too..As I told him my assignment and HE was the one all clicker happy taking pictures! Well, actually... His camera takes better pictures of "light" than mine... and when I got all frustrated with how mine were not the way I wanted them... He took over...

What movie has been filmed near you? Aloha Friday

Image
Hope you are planning to have a nice and relaxing weekend. 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:
Has there ever been a movie filmed near you?My answer:
They filmed Fireproof in my hometown...
(The Church, Sherwood, is the production of it and they have filmed another 2, Flywheel and Facing the Giants)
They also filmed The Odd Life Of Timothy Green there as well.
The reason I asked my question this week:
They are filming 3 movies all within an hour of where we live right now, so I was just wondering about your area!

Dandelion Earth Friendly Goods are Great for Toddlers! Review

Image
We try to make sure that Broxton not only eats good food, but also that he eats on great tableware.We have bought several different plates that have different characters on it... One or two uses later, the plate is all scratched up... Or there is this film like stuff peeling off of it.
We all know that children's products are not always cheap either, so it really frustrates me when I have to throw items away that have only been used once or twice. Now, we have a tableware set that has really impressed me so far.
Have you heard of Dandelion Earth Friendly Goods? We were able to review several of their products... So far, so good!
The first up, was the Infant Bowl and Spoon. Broxton has been using this for several items. I like that it is a BOWL that has a divider in it. We have used it for veggies on one side, dip on the other. We have also used it for different flavored ice cream!
The next up was the Divided Plate. We actually took one home to leave at my parents house and then we have one up …

The Man Test - Review

Image
When the boys are here, you can only IMAGINE the way this house runs... Who knows more of what.. Who is stronger, smarter, faster... You get the picture?
I was asked if I was interested in reviewing a book to test the knowledge of man. LOL. What do you think I said?! Heck yes, I would love to check this out! Granted, the oldest of the boys is 15, but still... A little healthy trivial competition has never hurt anyone!
The book came and I was ready to dive in! Ha, I wanted to know what "The Man Test" was about and I have to say, I learned several things! Marc and Roman, the 15 year old, answered the questions as I read them out loud. (Of course, I was guessing with them!) The great thing is that the answers are a few pages back, so everyone can test their knowledge!
The Break Down of the Chapters:

W/W - Firetruck!

Image
Broxton LOVES firetrucks.Like, absolutely LOVES them!

Good thing for me, a friend of mine is a firefighter!
That being said... Last time we went to my hometown, I promised him we would go see a firetruck. That was the big lead up that week.
Broxton was super good, because he knew he would get to go... That Saturday morning, we headed to the fire-station. My friend, Christy came out to meet us.
She took Broxton up in the firetruck and showed him how they turn the lights on.
THEN, she let him pull the string which made the loud horn sound!!! He was excited to see it all, but I think he was more excited to just stand and look at it all! I think he was most excited to just get to see it, although he did like hearing the sirens and the horn!!! After they looked inside the truck, Christy even let him put on a fire-hat!!!
(Thank goodness it was a cool one, since we quickly noticed the UGA sticker!! GO DAWGS!) After that, we made sure to get a picture so that we have proof that MOMMY got the cool points t…

BugBand for your Summer Time Planning - Review

Image
I like to think that I am super sweet, that is why the bugs always enjoy feasting on me... Truth of the matter is, we just have plenty of BUGS down here in Georgia!

We have so many mosquito's that it makes it hard to actually go out and enjoy the porch at times. After a few minutes out there, the mosquito's have normally feasted on a buffet of sweet yummy goodness, Marc... Broxton and of course... Yours Truly! Needless to say, our time out doors is limited!
Who wants to come in all bit up looking like we have chicken pox or something?
I was reading information about BugBand DEET Free Bug Repellent and then I noticed...
This was made in Cartersville, Georgia! Being from Georgia, I would LOVE to use more products from here...
Helping a neighbor out, isn't that great?!

We received the BugBand Wristband for review. I gave it to Marc to wear at work, but he could not do it. The band has a very potent smell to it and Marc has extra sensitive senses!
He did try it though, but being that…

Expecting or Know Someone Who Is? Review

Image
I am all about reading books...
If you have been here a few times, you might know that!

I was given the chance to review a book titled, The Christian Mama's Guide to Having a Baby. Let me explain to you why I really like this and totally recommend it...
Because I found myself actually able to understand it!
It did not hurt that I was constantly laughing about things, as well as the "oh, I remember that!"
Now, just because the title says Christian Mama ... Do not go thinking it is nothing but scripture. Basically, this book tells you like it is... And reminds you to:
Pray!

Pretty simple, huh? I know that there are tons of books out there that tell you this, that and the other... But this is the thing...
This one tells you things as well, in "normal" language!
One section I liked was:
The Internet Resources Section. I know that I was ALL OVER the Internet during my pregnancy... I also recommended several sites to friends once they became pregnant. This just puts it in a book for…

ACE - Supports Us more than you know! Review

Image
We have been fans of Ace Brands for quite some time...I have even had the chance to review for them before. You know I was happy that I can share more with you!
Marc has been complaining about his knee bothering him lately. I do not know if it is "old age" or if he might have turned it wrong at work.
Either way, he has been making it a point to put the Ace Knee Stabilizer with Dual Support on when he goes to work.

The day we received the package, he immediately put it on.A little bit later, he was already singing its praises about making his knee feel better. That was just sitting at the house, so I really wanted to see how it did at work.
The next time he left for work, he put it on. You can either put your foot through this sleeve and pull it up over your knee, then wrap the straps around it... Or you can just wrap the straps around, and the sleeve that your knee would be in is just extra fabric on the wrap.
(Did that make any sense? It did to me!)
I had to ask if he put it in the …
