Zaycon Foods is America's Drive Thru Meat Market

**** I will be receiving product in exchange for a review. 
How does Zaycon Foods manage to provide such high quality super fresh meat and produce to its customers at such low prices? The answer is strength in numbers. And not our numbers, yours!
Zaycon Foods can sell its products at bulk rate prices to individual consumers and families because our unique sales event business model brings lots of people together, adding all their purchasing power into a combined bulk food purchase. And when you buy as part of a group that’s committing to such a large purchase, the power is in the hands of the purchaser! It’s the ultimate group buy in terms of both price and consumer empowerment.
You can pre-select exactly what you want to order from a given Zaycon sales event – sometimes you may want to stock up on our amazing meaty back ribs and sometimes it might be all about the Zaycon bacon – and then, on the day of the sales event, you and a whole big bunch of your neighbors will find yourselves in a nearby parking lot watching as an entire tractor trailer’s worth of high quality natural food is unloaded into all of your cars! You will be amazed at how quickly one of our refrigerated trucks goes from being filled with natural, fresh chicken or hundreds of gallons of grade A non-homogenized milk to being empty and back on its way to the farm!
A Zaycon Foods truck sales event often lasts less time than you would spend on a trip to the grocery store, yet you will leave with a whole lot more food than you’d get at the market, and for much better prices, too!
When you use the Zaycon Foods sales event as your preferred place to purchase meats, milk, and any of our other fine products, you get advantages even beyond the bulk pricing that comes with our special sales model. You also have the peace of mind of knowing exactly what you’re going to get! A trip to the grocery store can involve wasted time wandering around looking for various foods spread out across the store; at a Zaycon Foods parking lot meat truck delivery (or milk or berries or fish delivery, too!) you have pre-ordered your foods, so all you have to do is show up and wait for our friendly staffers and volunteers to load up your car. 
Also, unlike in the grocery store, the prices you will pay for a Zaycon Foods product are locked in on our website, so you will know how much you are going to spend before you have committed to a purchase. 
At a supermarket, you might pay one price for chicken on one day, and then a higher price on another day. With Zaycon, you decide that you want to order a case of our fresh boneless skinless chicken breasts, you check the price and then you commit to it, knowing that from that moment on, we are committed to getting you your fresh, natural food!

Dead Tree? Thanks!!!!

So, when we first bought our house, we noticed we had a couple of dead tree's on the property.  
We had plans to get them removed, over time...  but then.... 
We had a visit from Code Enforcement... Letting us know that one of our neighbors happened to call and tell them that we were breaking the law.  (We are first time homeowners, so we did not know... nor did we expect this new expense so soon after moving in.)  Well, they told us that we had 10 days to get this removed, or we would have to go to court.
Obviously, we called and had the trees removed.  
We were talking to Broxton about how they would be coming to remove the trees.  He said that a Beaver was going to be getting the trees.  We told him that they would come and cut the tree down and then it would go through a wood chipper.  Once again, he was arguing that it would be a Beaver... 
They came and immediately got right to work.  No wasting time here, they were fast to get the first down and then they went to cleaning up... Before moving on to the next!  They were awesome... and so friendly because I decided that we wanted to keep a couple stumps for the time being and they were so nice about it all...    
They left the mulch right where we asked (we used some and then offered for some of the neighbors to get some to put in their yard.)  
But here is the kicker... 
Remember Broxton was adamant about it being a Beavers job?
Yeah... Look at the name of the machine!!!
Yeah... That is my boy... Smart in his own ways!!!!

Oh... If you are in the Atlanta area and have any tree removal needs... 
Stewart Tree Service was who we used...

****  I was not asked to post this, nor was I compensated in any way... I was just really impressed with them and thought they deserved recognition!!!!

Let's Learn Spanish - Dora Rocks! Review

FTC Compliant Review Policy:
The product(s) featured in this review were provided free of cost to me by the manufacturer or representing PR agency for the sole purpose of product testing. Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation.

A couple of months ago, Broxton decided he was ready to learn Spanish.
He would come home from school telling me about it and would ask me what the Spanish word was for different things.  I then learned that they had been watching Dora at school and he was more into listening than he normally was at home.  He had a couple Dora movies already, so he would ask to watch them more frequently than in the past.

With all of the moving we were doing, things sort of got shoved here and there...
We had borrowed my parents car (bigger and had a DVD  player.)
Broxton started asking for Dora over and over again and it was then that I noticed he had taken the Dora Rocks DVD that had shown up in the mail and added it to the DVD collection in the car!
Of course, you can't stop the kid that wants to learn, so I immediately threw it in the DVD player for him!

Big Book Of Who - Football #digintoreading

FTC Compliant Review Policy:

Although Father's Day is over, I still had to claim this as a "Father's Day" gift when it was delivered the other day.  Big Book Of Who: Football  is a great book for not only kids (it is from Sports Illustrated Kids) but it was a great read for daddies too!
Talk about a great bonding opportunity.



This book says it has " the 101 stars every fan needs to know" so that means it isn't a short book either!  
The contents include:
Champions
Personalities
Record Breakers
Super Scorers
Yardage Kings

This book is very informative.
I love how the format is... 
They start it with a question... 
Then, the paragraph answering it...
They also include photo's of the person they are discussing and then the "Super Stat" number is highlighted in a big circle!

Example - 
Who was named Super Bowl MVP the most times?
(Super Stat ---  122 Super Bowl Passes thrown by ________ without an interception; all other Super Bowl quarterbacks to have thrown 50 or more passes have at least one interception.) 
The answer?  Joe Montana.
They then include a paragraph with informative information about him.

Marc enjoyed reading it...   and I have enjoyed using it for "trivia" with the boys!!
It was pretty neat reading the questions and seeing how many they could get answered correctly... 
Synopsis Press Release: 
Young sports fans will return to again and again to The Big Book of Who: Football as an encyclopedia football resource with the classic touches that Sports Illustrated Kids is famous for— informative age-appropriate writing and world-class action photography.

Featuring gridiron greats like Dan Marino and Emmitt Smith, as well as current players such as Tom Brady, Cam Newton and Ray Lewis, The Big Book of Who: Football highlights football’s greatest:
·         Champions: The players who achieved football’s ultimate prize, many of them more than once.
·         Personalities: Men who are known for more than just the way they play the game on the field.
·         Record Breakers: Players whose feats set the standards by which future accomplishments are measured.
·         Super Scorers: Their specialty is putting the ball either through the uprights, or into the end zone.
·         Yardage Kings: The players who have excelled at moving their teams up and down the field.

This is a great book.
Hard back.  Full of great action shots.  
Full of fun information.

It was great for Marc... great for the boys...
I say this would be great for the "man cave" or even for the bathroom.
(Hey, just being honest here...  Remember, I have 3 tweens/teens, a husband and a brother that just graduated college!)
