 A couple of weeks ago, we were invited to the grand opening of the newest Build - A - Bear Workshop at the Mall of Georgia.  I went years ago, but Broxton had never been before.... So I was so excited to give him the opportunity.
I tell you, it was crazy!!!
We got there about 9:50 (the store opened at 10 am)  and there was already a line.  It was pretty cool though, they had a school group that was there beforehand making bears to give to other kids...   So, I waited out front with everyone else as we prepared for the ribbon cutting ceremony.    The BABW mascot, Beary, came out to greet everyone and then the fest…

Life has been pretty busy lately..
Between life in general and Broxton finishing up his first year of schoool...
Oh, and did I mention that my brother grabbed this little ol' thing called a "MASTERS DEGREE?!"
Well, between all of that...
We were sent a new DVD for Broxton to watch.
I try to let him come home and unwind from school with a little down time and what better way than Team UmiZoomi?  I love the UmiZoomi's as they teach ... not just entertain!!!!  Broxton loves watching them too and asks for them over and over again.  I remember growing up and hating some of my classes, I would always think "what do I need to learn this for?  I will never use it... "  and that was mostly for science and mat…

If you were here yesterday, you know that we had a great time at the Build a Bear Workshop grand opening the other day.   So, after you make your special friend... You just have a few more things to do before you are ready to take it home.

 We had such a blast there!!!  It was such a great experience for Broxton.  For me, I loved watching him get to pick the different characteristics that he wanted to add to make his friend special for him.  For Broxton, his favorite part was bathing his bear.  (It really was neat, you lay your friend on a different touch screen tablet and then the bubbles start... They even have …

Broxton loves the candy, Ring Pop.  His teacher gave him one as his treat for learning his Bible Verse once and he was so excited over it... It amazes me the smile on his face with this treat!  Well, we recently learned that Ring Pop has expanded for a greater reach....
Now, they offer MY RING POP.  A site where you can personalize/customize the ring pop to have a wrapper say something special just for the occasion.  You could have it say :"Great Job!" with the teachers name... or maybe "Thanks for celebrating" and give them as favors for a party... On their site, they showed brides to be using this to ask their friends to be bridesmaids...   With the My Ring Pop site, you can order from 25-500 in flavors…

Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation. Let me start by saying that I am not the best one when it comes to packing... I always OVER pack.  I would hate to need something and not have it... I have ALWAYS been that way.  Whenever I go with Broxton, once again... over pack.  Luckily for us, we have not had to go anywhere that we would have to worry about baggage fees... because I would totally be screwed.  (It doesn't help that Marc showed me how to pack where you get MORE in the suitcase... )   Well...  if and when we ever go somewhere that baggage fees might be an issue...  I AM READY!!! We were sent the Precision Voyager Luggage Scale from Eat Smart.   I was rather impressed with the size.  It is fairly small... but it can weigh bags up to 110 pounds!!!
It is rea…
