Growing Big and Strong with Yummi Bears Organics #review

Image
Let me start this by saying I am not a doctor.
Never have been either..
Okay, now that we have established that...

Flashback... my childhood...
My cousin would come to visit from Florida and she would always have this big ol' bag..  You know what was in it?  Vitamins...  We would laugh and she would try and not take them...   Her mom had her on tons of these big old nasty pills that were so large they would choke a horse..  But, a day or two into her summer vacation and she would be back taking them.  I still don't think she took them like her mom wanted her to, but still.. she did..   Why am I telling you this?  Because guess what.. she still takes vitamins today!  Not as many and I doubt that she has bags full of them, but still.  She says she can notice if she goes without them...  She just feels not as great as she normally does.

I slowly see now why her mom made her take them...  To make sure her baby was healthy and happy...
So, what am I doing?  I see more and more now …

Act of Valor - Staring Real Life Navy SEALs

Image
As we all know, I am married into the military. Marc being National Guard, I have so much respect for him and his "brothers."  The military is a family in its own and the fact that I am part of it, I am very proud of. That being said, there is a new movie coming out and you know I will be telling you about it. Have you heard of Act of Valor? As soon as I heard of it, I knew it was going to be one that I wanted to see. Why?  Because I like seeing how our military is portrayed, and because I like telling others about it, so that if they do not personally have military connections, they might see a glimpse into what all goes on. Now, some of it is totally absurd and you can tell it is all fake... but others are right on.

We had the chance to watch Act of Valor and I really liked it.
It isn't one that you can say "oh, it was a great movie!" but it is one that lets you see what really goes on and how things really happen.  No, not a breach of security or anything, …

Kidz Bop: Ultimate Hits Is Our Summer CD

Image
Music is so fun for us! We love it...  We as in Marc, ALL the boys... and you know I love it...

I love country the most... and Marc is more into Classic Rock...  That means the car is normally turned to the classic rock stations when Marc is driving.. and if I am driving, we normally have a DVD going... So, I don't get to listen to much these days...  Until I get to watch my shows... and then I hear all the songs...  Back when I worked, we had a radio on in the kitchen, so if I was back there, I had music... and if there wasn't a big sporting event, we had music on out front.. (Remember, I worked in a sports bar...) So..........  Why am I telling you all of this?
Because I want to tell you about a new CD that Broxton and I have been jamming to! Kidz Bop: Ultimate Hits


The last time we went home, I put it in the car... 
Once we got on the highway, I turned it on and the next thing I knew... Broxton was in his car seat "seat dancing" and was trying to sing along!  It …

Comfortable Shoes from @DawgsFootwear

Image
I have found a pretty comfortable pair of flip flops and I just have to tell you about them.
You want to know why?
Because up until recently, I was not a fan of flip flops..
Not that there is anything wrong with them, but because I hate feet.

My feet are not the prettiest (no worries, I am not going to be posting a picture of them on here...)
That being said, I never wore shoes that would show my toes...
Not attractive!  I used to joke and say it was because my feet were all weird and blame it that my mom would not buy me shoes that fit when I was younger... Truth is, I just have ugly toes!!!!

All my life I wore tennis shoes and closed toed shoes... As to not worrying about showing those ugly jokers off!  Then, in Atlanta, I would wear them every now and then... nothing like an every day item, but I would wear them from time to time...
Once I married Marc, I noticed I would wear them more... and even more importantly, I would wear them in public!!!!  I guess since he loves me, it doesn…

Is Your Mom an "Every Day Hero?" P&G #ad #giveaway

Image
My mom is a pretty amazing woman. I know that I did not appreciate it when I was growing up, but I do now... Maybe because I am a mom myself?  Maybe because I finally stopped being stupid... Either way, I think that Mothers DAY should not just be one day a year...  I know, maybe Mothers Month? Or maybe.. just maybe... every day we could try and show / tell how appreciative we are! Dollar General and Proctor and Gamble are teaming together to do just that: Throughout the month of May, in recognition of moms who do extraordinary things every day for their families and communities, Dollar General® is teaming up with Procter & Gamble® to honor moms – the true Every Day Heroes who have made sacrifices for their families and their communities.  To celebrate moms, Dollar General is inviting customers to upload videos describing why their moms are “Every Day Heroes.” Videos can be submitted and viewed at www.dollargeneral.com/everydayheroes.  
To help you honor your mom... Be it Mothers D…
