Easy CleanUp with @Diaperpods

We just received a pretty good product in the mail for review!   Now, Broxton is no longer in diapers, so I asked if I could review this with a friend that does have a son in diapers... Have you heard of DiaperPods?
I really love the time they took into packaging for review, that said alot there, so I was eager to check it out.
 At first, you think it is just a plain diaper... Okay, not plain, as there is a design, but just an ordinary diaper... I know that is what you are thinking...  We put it on our tester and he was fine in it... No problems, it fit great and when he was FINALLY time for a change (hours later...) there was no leakage!  Only problem was the adults...
LOL, we just yanked the diaper off (that was a dirty one, if you catch my drift)  and then proceeded to try and figure it out...  You see, there is a "diaper pod" in the back of the diaper... Meaning, a built in trash bag, for easy disposal!  You can not see it, or really feel it. (We saw it and felt it becau…

Custom Brownie Sampler #Giveaway from @gmtgiftbaskets

Somebody loves me...   Okay, it was sent for review, but I tell you...
Had someone sent me the brownie sampler that we reviewed, I would totally know that someone loved me!

The boys were lucky, as while they were here, we received a great custom Brownie Sampler from Gourmet Gift Baskets for review...

There were 6 brownies in there and each was so delicious!!!!
The flavors included:
·         Belgian Chocolate Chunk ·         White Chocolate Macadamia Blonde ·         Butterscotch Blonde ·         Cheesecake ·         Peanut Butter ·         Fudge Walnut

First up, we tried out the Belgian Chocolate. We all agreed it was delicious!!!
(It was sent in a package that said "perishable" so our apartment office was nice enough to refrigerate it until we picked it up...)
As soon as we opened the box, it was a tough choice deciding what to try first...
Okay, so back to that Belgian Chocolate. It was so moist and chewy and wow...  LOADED with flavor!!!!

Up next, we tried the Butterscotch Blonde. I c…

Guilty Pleasures... Aloha Friday

It is Friday!  Time to link up with Kailani and enjoy the weekend...

My question this week:

What is a tv show would you consider a "guilty pleasure?"

For me, it used to be Jersey Shore...  but Marc can not stand to watch it... so... it has been pushed away... 
Now, I love watching Walking Dead... Most people I know think I am crazy for enjoying this show... but I can not help it... If you get past the zombies, it really is a good show!!!! (The third season starts filming soon!)
Have a great weekend!!!!

April Is Month of the Military Child - Show Your Support

As an Army Wife ... and a mom...  and a Proud American...
I just wanted to remind you: April is the Month of the Military Child... Please share this with everyone... And remember to wear PURPLE this Friday, April 13th.

April marks the nation’s “Month of the Military Child,” a time to honor youth impacted by deployment. In celebration, Georgia Operation: Military Kids (OMK) invites you to join us for the inaugural “Purple Up! For Military Kids.”
We are encouraging everyone across the state of Georgia and Nation to wear purple on Friday, April 13th, as a visible way to show support and thank military children for their strength and sacrifices. Purple is the color that symbolizes all branches of the military, as it is the combination of Army green, Coast Guard blue, Air Force blue, Marine red and Navy blue. In military terms programming "purple" or "joint" means reaching out to all branches of the military.  OMK hopes everyone will take this opportunity to appreciate and…

Flip Flops and Margaritas With @DesignsByLolita

I love fun and funky...  That being said, I hope you remember my Christmas Post about Lolita Glasses... Why?  Because she has several new ones that I want to tell you about... With summer quickly approaching (it was 90 degrees the other day here, so, I am thinking it is already summer!)  what better than to start thinking and preparing for fun days of Margarita's on the patio... or by the pool? We had the chance to review the Lolita Flip Flops Margarita Glass...  LOVE IT!   The flip flops have you itching to get to the beach ASAP (this is coming from a redhead, so you know they must look awesome!) I think that this would be a great gift idea...  Say you are getting married somewhere tropical, GREAT way to ask your friend to be a bridesmaid... Your friend invites your family over for a cookout?  Great hostess gift (even better if you bring the tequila too!) I think they would be great decoration pieces too... So, as you see, the glasses are more than just to drink out of.. they ar…

Movie Night with Alvin and the Chipmunks : Chipwrecked

Broxton has really been wanting to see Chipwrecked, so I was happy when we received a copy for review.  Of course that meant that we had to watch it the day it came in... and once we got the boys?  (They were here for Spring Break) Yep... we had to watch again!  We started watching, but then had to stop it... No one was too happy about that, but we had to...

So, when we loaded up to take them back home... you guessed it... We put it on so that they could watch it and finish it that time.   Remember, the boys are 11, 14 and 16... They all loved it... Well, the 16 year old watched when he wasn't texting and on facebook... but all in all, they all enjoyed it.  I thought that it seemed to have more music in the last one, but that could  be me, not sure about that... 

In Chipwrecked,  Dave takes the Chipmunks and Chipettes on a cruise for a nice and relaxing vacation.... You can only imagine how relaxing a vacation would be with one adult and 6 "kids" not to mention one of them be…
