If you are in or near Atlanta, make sure you head to Build a Bear Workshop at The Mall of Georgia on Friday, April 26th.
Want to know why????

They are opening up a "highly anticipated newly imagined store!"


Guests who visit the new store will see a noticeable change to the company’s trademarked stuffed animal-making experience including:
  • An interactive storefront that is enabled by Microsoft’s Kinect technology and interactive touch elements. Guests can play games and view the latest product offerings as they enter the store.
  • The Love Me station allows Guests to customize their furry friends with special personality attributes displayed as emoticons on an interactive table. Using Samsung’s SUR40 with Microsoft® PixelSense™ technology, Guests add unique traits - like brave, silly, and smart - to their red satin heart, which is added to their stuffed animal during the Stuff Me process.
  • The Hear Me station features an assortment of high quality sounds that can be added to stuffed animals. Using an interactive touch screen, Guests can select and load popular hits from current music, sounds, or their own voice onto a chip to further personalize their stuffed animal.
  • The Fluff Me station features a digital bath tub enabled by Samsung’s SUR40 with Microsoft® PixelSense technology. The tub magically recognizes the items as they are placed on it and reacts with sensory effects such as virtual bubbles that appear when play soap is placed on the “water surface.”
  • The Name Me station, where Guests use a viewfinder or “Bear-O-Scope” to reveal the special attributes they added to their stuffed animal. At Name Me, Guests also create a one-of-a-kind birth certificate that includes a photo of their new furry friend.

Stay Tuned to see how our trip goes!!!!

Wisk Power Blast #Giveaway

Having a 4 year old, we have our fair share of dirt... 
From running and playing outside to arts and crafts.
When the boys come for the summer, we have plenty of laundry and boys = sweaty clothes!  

I was excited to hear about Wisk Power Blasts.
Not only did I learn that there is a Wisk Deep Clean Power Blast detergent, I learned about one of my last favorite things:  Sweat!
Check this out:  
Did you know that there are 250,000 sweat glands in your feet?  Or, that the average person can produce 1-3 gallons of sweat each week?  ...   Most people don’t realize that the average washload contains 20 times more hidden body oils and sweat than visible stains and this hidden dirt can stay trapped deep within the fiber of your clothes and build up over time.

Not fun.... Nope, not at all!!!
So, we were sent a sample of the Wisk Deep Clean Power Blast and so far so good!
I love that  my clothes are clean.. and the packaging is a plus!!!
This detergent comes in "power blast" packages.  Just throw the package in ...  then wash your clothes like normal.  The thin plastic that contains the detergent dissolves in the water.  That means LESS WASTE!!!!  


This is a great product to have for many reasons.
It gets the job done.  It is great for travel.  Perfect for college kids.  Awesome for elderly people.. Less of a "load" to carry and less waste too!  The scent is just a "clean" smell, so no worries about florals or a musky scent.
We will be purchasing these in the future... but until then...
I get to give 1 package away to 3 lucky winners!!!

Earth Day with Ms. Frizzles #MagicSchoolBus DVD #Giveawayg

I am not sure if I have mentioned just how much I love the Magic School Bus DVD's.  
I was not familiar with them before we had a chance to review them, but I tell you what... Now that I know them, I am eager to add more to our collection!  I know they are in books and DVD's, but we have not seen a book yet.  That is on the list for this summer!  


We were sent the Magic School Bus - All About Earth for review.  I was excited about it... so I told Broxton's teacher about the DVD.   I figured it would be great to work into Earth Day (and they had recently done an "experiment" with a Volcano)  so I thought it was perfect timing!
She let them watch a different episode during their lunch break and she said they were all totally into watching the movie!   She even had to remind them to eat, they were so focused!!!
Once we had it back at home, Broxton has asked to watch a couple different times!  I love listening to them talking and being entertaining for him... all while teaching him as well!!!!
Marc was listening to the DVD in the car while he drove and I was telling him how I loved the concept of this... They load into the magic school bus to get to size to really explore and discover the subject... but the best part for me is the end... I love how they point out what was true and what was made up to better explain the story at hand!

More about the DVD" - All About Earth:

Grab a seat on the bus and hang on for the three episodes, including "The Magic School Bus Goes to Seed", where the class' garden is going to be featured on the cover of Plant It! Magazine, but Phoebe's garden plot is glaringly empty; "The Magic School Bus Blows its Top", which explains volcanoes and shows Ms. Frizzles class how the earth makes islands and "The Magic School BusGoes on Air", which covers the mysteries and miracles of air pressure.

If you are looking for an informative DVD, look no further than The Magic School Bus!!!
