Finally, it tastes good and the kids love it! Sustenex Probiotics Review

A while back, Broxton had a fever and I was not sure what to do...
I did not think that he needed to go to the doctor, but I was not really sure what to do, as he had never ran a high fever...
They told me to make sure and give him probiotics.
I hate to admit this, but I had no clue what that was.
Yes, I googled to see, as I did not want to sound totally dumb, they said it like it was water or something else that everyone knows of...

Between you and I, he felt better the next day, the fever was gone... and I did not worry about getting any probiotics for him...
Luckily for us, we were sent a couple samples of the Sustenex probiotics.
We were sent the Sustenex Probiotic Gummies and Broxton asks for his medicine every day!
They do taste just like gummy bears, so I am glad that we constantly say Medicine instead of "candy" as I do not want him to think he can have all sorts of candy daily!
We were also sent the Probiotic Soft Chews and I gave them to the boys to try.
They all loved them and said they thought it was funny that they tasted so good, they even said it tasted like candy to them!
Now, the 10 year old is reminding me on a daily basis to give him his chewy!

If only all children's medicine tasted this good, it would never be a problem to get them to take it!!!

Just a little about Sustenex, from the company:

SUSTENEX™ INTRODUCES FIRST-OF-ITS-KIND

PROBIOTIC GUMMIES AND CHEWS

Kid-Friendly and Portable Probiotics are the Perfect Solution for Busy Families

MAYFIELD HEIGHTS, OHIO – April 28, 2011 – Your daily dose of probiotics just got a lot easier to swallow. Sustenex, the leading all-natural daily probiotic supplement, has expanded its line of products to include all-natural Sustenex Probiotic Gummies and Sustenex Probiotic Chews.

Sustenex Probiotic Gummies, available in assorted fruit flavors, contain 250 million CFUs (colony forming units) of the GanedenBC30 probiotic per bear. At only 12 calories per gummy, Sustenex Probiotic Gummies are safe for children two years old or older and are the perfect solution for kids and adults alike who are lactose intolerant or simply don’t like yogurt. One box of gummies contains 60 pieces and is offered at a suggested retail price of $15.99.

Sustenex Probiotic Chews, in all-natural mixed berry flavor, contain one billion CFUs per chew. The chews, only 20 calories each, are safe for adults and children five years old and older. One bag contains 30 individually-wrapped chews and is offered at a suggested retail price of $15.99.

All Sustenex products contain the proprietary probiotic bacteria GanedenBC30 (Bacillus coagulans GBI-30, PTA-6086). Compared to other common probiotic bacteria such lactobacillus, acidophilus and bifidobacteria, GanedenBC30 is protected by a natural shield that allows it to live through manufacturing, product shelf life and stomach acids. Because of this, Sustenex products deliver 10 times more live cells than other leading probiotics* to where the body needs them most – the digestive tract.

Sustenex capsules are one of the most popular probiotics products on the market today, but not everyone wants to swallow a pill everyday to get their daily dose,” says Marshall Fong, vice president of marketing for Ganeden Biotech. “Our new gummies and chews not only make the world of probiotics more accessible, but they’re also the perfect solution for anyone looking for an easier way to get probiotics into their system – or into their kids.”

- more -

Sustenex Probiotic Gummies and Chews are gluten- and lactose-free and contain less sugar and calories than yogurt. All Sustenex products, including the new gummies and chews, are available in the digestive health aisle of national retailers like Wal-Mart, Target, CVS, Walgreens and other retailers nationwide. For more information, visit www.sustenex.com.

Probiotics, defined by the World Health Organization, are live microorganisms that provide health benefits to the host when taken adequately. Also known as “friendly” bacteria, probiotics have been recognized to help balance the digestive system and reduce common gastrointestinal ailments like Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), lactose intolerance, antibiotic-associated diarrhea, gas, and bloating.

About Sustenex

Sustenex is a natural supplement developed to help maintain a healthy, balanced digestive system and boost body’s immune system. Sustenex™ contains GanedenBC30, a probiotic or helpful bacteria that is beneficial to your overall intestinal health. Sustenex is developed and distributed by Ganeden Labs.

Crazy Days of Summer Photo Challenge - Week Seven - Critters


I was a bit worried about what I would take pictures of for the Photo Challenge of Critters...
When we went to visit my parents, my mom wanted to take Broxton and I to see a bunch of baby frogs...
We got there and saw a couple!
Not what she had seen the day before, but at least there were some...

Not sure what kind of frog this is, so if you know...
Let us know, PLEASE!!!!!!!!!

This is the little frog in a water bottle...
Again in the water bottle.
Again in the water bottle.
The little frog beside my moms thumb!
We put the frogs in a jar for Broxton to look at!!!!

That was enough Critter for me!!!!

T.M.I. Or Not? "Just Sayin...."

I am large chested woman.
I get it from my mom...
She gets it from her mom...

Being big chested...
(Here is the TMI for you... )
Means we sweat!
If you are big chested at all, you know what I am talking about.
You put your bra on...
You go about your day, you come home and when you take your bra off...
It is wet.
Sweat under your breasts... Sweat between the breasts...
Wow!

Come on, don't let me be the only one.
For all you small chested people, see...
THERE IS A BENEFIT to this!!! :)

Anywho...
For all of us big chested gals out there...
Pambra's to the rescue!!!!
Not only is it great to catch the sweat and keep your bra dry, it also works wonderful if you have a bra that just "rubs you the wrong way."

Pambra's is a bra liner that is easy to put on...
and easy to clean!
Just throw it in the wash!
As much as I would like for this to be me, it isn't...
But, this is how it is to be worn.

I will tell you, when I put it on the first time, I had it pulled to high up.
I was wondering why it looked like I had a big tent pitched between my breasts...
(It was so high up that the material was sticking out!)
Then, I realized I had it to high!!!!
I pulled it down to where it was supposed to be and it was great!
After wearing it all day in the sweltering heat, I was happy when I took my bra off that night!
I know, I always am, but I am saying...
I took it off and the liner was wet, but not my bra!!!

This would have been perfect for back when I worked in the bar...
During the summer, the AC would always go out...
and that was why the customers stopped coming, it was toooooo HOT!
Who wants to sweat while they eat INSIDE?
Moving along, don't get me started on this...

I think Pambra's would be wonderful for those that go to the gym or do any sort of exercise too!
Just think how much better you would feel knowing this was there to absorb it all!

Now, I have the chance to let you try them out for yourself!!!!

Pambra's is giving THREE of you the chance to win a package of your own!!!!

Mandatory Entry:
Visit Pambra's and let me know what color you would like if you won.

Where Would You Go? Aloha Friday


Happy Weekend Everyone!
It is Friday!!!!
That means - - - ALOHA FRIDAY.

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:
Where should I go on vacation?
LoL, I am not really going on a vacation, but rather a "Noelle Version of a Staycation."
Want my secret?
I google different places, read about them and look at images...
It is cheaper and I can do it in my PJ's!!!!

Recently, I went and visited Pike Place Fish Market!
I love that site and yes, I watch the webcam too!

So, where should I go?
Any suggestions?

Barney: 1-2-3 Learn


My little brother LOVED Barney!
I remember the whole " I love you" song and everything, but I thought that Barney was just a thing from back when my brother was younger.
You can only imagine what my facial expression looked like when I heard the Big Purple Dinosaur come on TV one morning!
I brought Broxton in the living room and we watched the same type of program that I remembered my brother watching!
So many shows today are so completely different from how they started out, or at least how I remembered them!
Not the case with Barney!!!!

I was excited to know that not only were we getting the chance to review a new Barney DVD, it was the Barney: 1-2-3 Learn one!!!
As soon as it came, we immediately put it in!!!
I loved it!!!
Yes, there are new characters and of course the children have changed, but some things remain!
Teaching!!!!

Barney and friends not only taught how to know your different shapes, they made games out of it!
They showed us how different musical instruments are different shapes...
They also showed that there are many different games that you can play with different shapes!
(They had a bean bag toss and it was all in TRIANGLES!)

After working on shapes, they moved on to learning numbers.
Not only did they basically count, they showed that you could play the :Number Limbo.
With Number Limbo, each time you went and did the limbo, the pole moved another number down!!!!

They even said that learning to count, you can do all sorts of fun things!!!
See, it isn't just to know how to count! It is to know how to count and HAVE FUN!!!!

I loved watching this with Broxton and listening to him sing and dance!!!!

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:

Just in time for back to school season, an all-new Barney™ DVD is a great way for your kids to learn their numbers, shapes and letters! Count on everyone’s favorite big purple dino inBarney: 1-2-3 Learn, coming to DVD, Digital Download and On Demand July 12, 2011 from Lionsgate and HIT Entertainment. With his signature colorful combination of music, dancing, and lessons to last a lifetime, Barney and his playground friends celebrate the joy and ease of learning, and surprise! – it’s also fun!

SYNOPSIS:
Come along with Barney and his friends for a tee-riffic adventure filled with shapes, numbers and letters! Join Baby Bop™ as she discovers that counting can lead to hidden treasures and that there’s a carnival of shapes and colors for all to enjoy. And BJ™ uses the alphabet to help Riff™ get ready for his music concert in the park. Barney can’t wait to show you that shapes, numbers and letters are the ticket to fun and friendship!

Take Me Home Tonight - DVD Review

Okay, so I watch all sorts of TV.
You name it and I might have seen it at some point.
I also love watching movies, although I do not get to as much now as I did before Broxton.
Top it off, I guess I am finally growing up, as the things that used to be hilarious sometimes are just not that funny now.
My brother on the other hand...
LOVES-MOVIES!
When he visits my parents, he watches as many movies as he can...
(They have that Blockbuster pass where you pay monthly and he totally gets their moneys worth when he is there.)

I was able to review the movie, Take Me Home Tonight.
I think Anna Farris is funny, so when I saw her in it, I thought it would be pretty good.
Topher Grace is in it and when I do watch That 70's show, he makes me laugh...
So, I thought it would be worth watching.

Now, Anna Farris is in it, but she really is not like a major character, in my opinion.
Topher Grace is by far the main character!!!!

I thought it was funny, and truth be told, I probably would have thought it was hilarious about 8 years ago...
Marc liked the soundtrack, as it was set in the late 1980's.

Long story short, Take Me Home Tonight is about "the real world" as my mom put it in my college days.
Matt and Wendy are twins.
They meet up with Matt's best friend, Barry and plan a wild night.
They go out for the night to a huge Labor Day party with all their friends from high school.
At the party is Tori, who Matt had a crush on throughout high school.
Of course he lies about what has happened since school...
All for the simple reason of trying to impress her and make his high school dream come true.

Watch the wild and crazy night unfold.
Marc thought it was alright.
Roman (the 15 year old) thought it was just hilarious...
I thought it was pretty funny...
Like I said, before Broxton I would have viewed it differently!

I know for sure that my brother and his college buddies would all enjoy!!!!!
***** I just remembered this, so I wanted to come back and add it... The F-Bomb is a very popular word in this movie... Just so you know in advance.*****

@MyBabyClothes - Review and #Giveaway

I do not know if I ever mentioned this or not, but my grandmother used to love to sew.
I always thought that whenever I had a baby, I would have tons of little adorable outfits...
My grandmother made the outfit that we brought Broxton home from the hospital in.
Of course, when I opened that gift, I cried!

Well, needless to say, my grandmother doesn't sew these days...
But, that doesn't stop me from looking at all the adorable baby clothes out there!

I have mentioned before that Marc has all boys...
I cross my fingers that if we ever have another baby, we have a girl.
Either way, I would be thrilled beyond belief, but a little girl to dress in those adorable tutus and baby headbands would be so fun!

I know, I bet some of you never would have thought that from me!!!!
You would be surprised what motherhood does to you!
I won't lie...
If Uncle Ashton ever braves it to take Broxton out to play golf, we just might have to splurge and get him the cute little baby hat that looks perfect for a golf outing!
I have seen My Baby Clothes Boutique on other blogs and I tell you, every time I looked, that little clock started ticking wanting a little girl so bad...
But then, I was given the chance to review their line...
I LOVED looking at all the little boy clothes!
I remember my brother wearing all those little "shortall" outfits that my grandmother would make!
It was great looking to see that they are still around!!!

After looking and comparing for a million years...
(Hey, it was hard to narrow it down!)
We finally went with the Mud Pie Truck Three Piece Set.

I LOVED it on Broxton!
He was so handsome...
UNTIL the camera came out!
Then, it was anything and everything BUT letting me get a picture!
We tried and tried...
The whole plan was to get a good one for the fourth!
Yeah, not so much!!!!
The only drawback for me on the outfit was like a catch 22.
I thought it was adorable, but the wheels on the truck were actual buttons...
I loved it, but Broxton did not think that they belonged on his shirt in that location.
I am not so sure how long the buttons will survive.
They have made it so far, but in the end...
This 2 year old did not like the buttons there!

Who would like to win a $25 gift card to spend at My Baby Clothes Boutique?

Tell me who you would use the gift certificate for!

Chicken Soup - Country Music - #giveaway


I love Country Music.
I have as long as I can remember...
You know, that reminds me...
I need to look for a few pictures to scan and post!

I opened up the mail and was very excited to see that I was going to be reviewing the newest book, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Country Music.
It is "The Inspirational Stories behind 101 of Your Favorite Country Songs."

Now, I am not going to sit here and list all 101 songs that they give the stories on, but I will tell you, they have a bit of each generation represented!!!
From "That's My Job" sang by Conway Twitty to "The House that Built Me" sang by Miranda Lambert!
I loved sitting there and reading all the stories about each song...

I even had to share with Marc about "Almost Home" sang by Craig Morgan.
I love that song, and I told Marc it always makes me sad though...
I hear that song and in my mind, I pictured it being about a guy that was dying and was "Almost Home," WELL - according to the story, Craig Morgan saw it as he was going back home in his dream while the other writer saw it that he was ready to pass on...
See?
It is just a really neat book and full of "behind the scenes" stories!
I personally think it is a great read for any Country Music lover!!!!

Want to win a copy?

Mandatory Entry:
Leave me the name to a country song or artist that you like.
(Please leave email if not visible in your profile.)

Ankle Biters- #Giveaway and Review


When we first moved back up to the area we are in now, I heard of this really cool children's boutique that was near us.
From what I heard, they had a little bit of everything and tons of great children's toys.
Well, luckily for all of us, I just had to go and check them out!

Now, they have an online store and all of the cute items and toys that were in there store are now available online!
That means that all of you can shop there!!!!
Top it off, one lucky winner is going to win an awesome toy from there!
(I will get to that in a minute....)

First, let me tell you about the store.
The name: Ankle Biters.
I just love that name, because it cracks me up!!!!

Ankle Biters allows you to shop for the perfect gift a couple different ways...
If you know what you are looking for, you can go straight to the category.

Once you know your category, you can look a little further to narrow down your search.
Say you want to get a book:
You then decide if you want a picture book, baby and toddler books or activity books.
They also have cute clothes and if you are a die head sports fan...
You might be able to get an outfit with your team logo.

They offer toys that are not the ones found in your local chain stores, they are cute and classic!
If you are looking for that special one of a kind gift, they even offer tooth fair items as well as special bibs and hats for that Big Day... You know, the FIRST BIRTHDAY!!!!

Now, if you are not sure exactly what to get for that special someone, you can do a search based on their age.
Ankle Biters is a specialty store for kids up to age 6.

We were able to review the Tumblekins Fire Station Play Set.
Broxton LOVES this!
I think it is just too cute!
It is made of wood and it is very sturdy.
You have the little fire station...
You put the chief in there and he "tumbles" his way down until he falls into the fire truck!
Then, once he is in the fire truck, as you roll it around, the chief is constantly tumbling while he drives!
Broxton cracks up when he tumbles on in and I love hearing that little boy squeal with excitement!

Now, back to the giveaway:
Just to show you how cool the toys are that they offer, Ankle Biters is giving one lucky reader the chance to win a Tumblekins Fire Station Play Set! (MSRP $34.99)

Make Travelling Easier! Travalo Review

When I travel, I like to take perfume with me...
Don't you?
I just hate taking it as I am always so worried that it will break.

If I carry it in my carry on bag, it is now too big...
If I pack it in my suitcase, I am terrified that it will break in their...
Thus, ruining my clothes... and of course, the whole bottle of perfume!

Now, there is luckily a solution!
Have you heard of Travalo?
You see, now you can take your perfume with you!
You just take the nozzle off of your perfume bottle.
Then you put your Travalo on the tube and pump your perfume in there.

The cool thing about it?
There is a little window on the side that shows your perfume level in the Travalo!
It says that it hold 65 pumps, but I have not counted it yet! :)

I do know that this is great for several different things...
One, travel?
Pack it up and you don't have to worry about it breaking!
You can also throw it in your purse as to have a way to freshen up!

It comes in several great looking colors, so you can even fill it with cologne for your honey!
Going to the gym?
Throw one in each of your gym bags!!!

Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son - Review

I think Martin Lawrence is funny.
Marc isn't a fan, but he has his moments and he makes me laugh...

That being said, when he was at work one day, we watched Big Momma: Like Father, Like Son.
I laughed...

Long story short:
Martin plays the role of Malcolm Turner.
He is an FBI agent with a son that I could smack across the head!
Basically, Malcolm (and his son, that should NOT have been around) witnessed a murder.
Due to that, they go undercover at an all girls school.
Yeah, you read that right...
They go undercover!

That is how we meet "Big Momma!"
Big Momma takes on the position as a dorm mom type and her niece is Charmaine...
This is just the beginning, as the fun is only just now getting started!
Not only does Malcolm/Big Momma have to deal with being an FBI agent trying to catch the bad guys, he also has to be "dorm mom" and deal with college school girl drama...
ADD TO THAT, the janitor likes Big Momma and not only tries to put the move on her, the game of twister that they play makes you seriously laugh out loud!!!

Not only do you see what all lies ahead with Big Momma, you also get to see a few performances from the all girls school of performing arts where they are undercover.
Yes, there is a little love story as well.
I personally thought it was funny and I know we will watch this again!!!
