Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation. Being in my thirties, I keep saying that I need to start a better skin care routine. Now that we have a house, we are outside so much more now than we used to be....
I KNOW I need to do better.
A friend of mine actually told me that I needed to start a routine, to keep me from aging...
You know what she recommended?   Olay Regenerist.   Olay has been a name I have known for what seems to be a million years, so they obviously know what they are doing... 
I have to say, I absolutely LOVE the light, subtle scent of the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream.  It is not overpowering, but you can smell it.  ( I am not really a fan of totally unscented things, so this is great.)  I immediately felt as though my face was being hydra…

As much as I am always looking to add to our library, I am also thinking about adding to the library for him to enjoy as he gets older too.  I was offered the chance to review The Tattered Prayer Book by Ellen Bari and of course, I jumped on it.  It is a book that starts the introduction of the Holocaust for children aged 6-10.  I read it and then shared it with the 12 year old when they came to visit.  (He is the reader of the older boys and is always on a quest to learn more.)
The Tattered Prayer Book tells of a young boy that basically smuggles in a prayer book when he and his family come to the United States.  Years later, his daughter finds it and after asking questions, the father realizes that he was not only keepin…

Broxton has decided that he wants to read and learn about different things. One week, we were reading and learning about all sorts of bugs...
The next week, he was excited and wanted to learn about sharks and sea life.
I was excited to learn that we would be reviewing the book, Shimmer and Splash from Sterling Books.  This was a great read with awesome pictures!  
Shimmer and Splash Contents Include:  Inshore Hunters
Stingrays Dolphins Jellyfish Deep Sea Hunters Sailfish Coral Reef A Good Place To Be Sharks Fighting Fiddlers Waters of Wonder
Being that I am not an avid fisher or anything, this book also taught me as well.
For each section, you had a paragraph about the topic of discussion...
Then, you also had illustrations to show you each f…

With the summer months in full swing here...  Dental Hygiene needs to still be in your mind.
I know with us, the whole system of a routine has slacked off...  There is no getting up for school and the days are a bit lazy...  We still take care of our hygiene... as in Broxton had a dentist appointment as soon as summer started!  
Since summer is in full effect, I wanted to share with you a few friendly tips to keep those Pearly Whites Shining!  (As well as  to offer a giveaway for one lucky reader!!!)

Each night we go to bed, Broxton enjoys reading a couple books.  Of course, I love this time to snuggle with him, so I am always ready to read a couple to him.  The one we have been reading lately is Are You My Friend Today by Gyo Fujikawa.  That is the one thing that I really love about being a blogger....  I love that Broxton and I get to explore all different books and we get to share them with you!!

This book was not one that I have ever heard of and to be honest, I probably would not have grabbed it at the store... but it is cute and I am glad we have it to add to our collection!!!
This book shows the difference in all sorts of kids and what all goes on for them daily...
It starts with "We Are Friends" and it…

I am glad you are back to join me in another review for my Dig Into Reading....  We have made it a point to try and read several books a day....
Broxton has even decided that he needed his own library card, so we have been visiting the library and reading about different things too!!! The latest book?
Bedtime Stories and Prayers blessings for bedtime. This is such a cute book!!! The first page of the book is a dedication page... Perfect for gift giving!
I personally think this would be a great gift to give at a baby shower!
Bedtime Stories and Prayers is over 100 pages.   Each page is beautifully illustrated.
It is full of color, but not so overwhelming to distract from reading at bedtime.   A plus for me?  The kids are from all so…

I am always up for trying new stuff.
Broxton will try things from time to time... But if you try and MAKE him.... forget about it.
If you offer and then go on about your business, he will most likely try it.
(At least if you are anyone that is NOT his daddy!  ha ha ha) We were sent the Macro Greens/ Miracle Reds products for review and I was not really sure what to expect.   It was a powdered mix and Broxton was eager to help me out.
Of course, they package it totally marketing it to kids...  So, he wanted to try it before I even offered it!
The directions say to add a little water before to the mix to try and turn it into a liquid before adding milk or whatever you plan to do with it. It was not that easy for us.  Each time w…
