I mentioned before how I like to "travel" and visit places by checking them out online... Well, I can now add a new mode of "transportation" to my list.  While watching the Smithsonian Channel of Aerial America (Southeast Collection)  DVD, I was able to visit my home state of Georgia and the surrounding Southern States such as Florida, Mississippi, Alabama, North Carolina and South Carolina.   You don't have to sit and watch the whole DVD at once,  you can click on the menu and pick the state you want to check out when you are ready.  Of course, we went with Georgia first and it was nice to see that they not only mention the coastal area's but also highlight the capital and many places all over the state.  Some we have been to, others are now on our " to visit" list, especially since Broxton stopped playing with his toys to check out the DVD!
I felt that this was not only an educational video telling us of places in the south, but it was entertaining to learn (in a fun way) of the history and surrounding areas! 
I think this would be great not only for a personal collection, but it would be great to have in schools on hand for teachers to use when needed!
 
 
Aerial America: Southeast Collection offers you a first class, window-seat view of the South’s breathtaking landscapes and landmarks while exploring its compelling, complex past. Our journey takes you through North Carolina’s barrier islands and First in Flight history, South Carolina’s elegant charms and extraordinary past, and Georgia’s hot cities and haunted graves. Flights over Mississippi and Alabama reveal where Civil War battles were lost and the Civil Rights Movement was born, while Florida shows off its stunning beaches, lavish lifestyles, and magical world.
 
*** You can purchase this DVD and others like it at Barnes and Noble, Amazon or Best Buy.

Time to get ready for Spring Cleaning, right?  We all know we want to use products that are safe for our loved ones, so why not check out the line from Home Logic? They have a wide variety of cleaning products... From all purpose cleaners to glass cleaner, toilet bowl cleaner, laundry detergent and even bed bug spray!  
Head over to see what all products they do offer, I am telling you- between the options of cleaners and then giving you a choice between Citrus Grove or Jasmine Mist, they are sure to get your house sparking and smelling great! 
 
We were sent their glass cleaner.  Now, I don't worry when Broxton helps me and cleans the windows for me:  
No more ammonia based glass cleaning for you and your family! Not when you bring our Natural HomeLogic Glass Cleaner into your home.
Just say no to dangerous and toxic fumes from traditional and outdated brand name glass cleaners by using Natural HomeLogic Glass Cleaner instead, and start to wipe away those pesky streaks and splotches safely and naturally. It doesn't matter if it's windows, mirrors, or glass tables because our glass cleaner will bring its' best clean every time and leave behind streak free surfaces that are toxin free. Add a little more sparkle and shine into your home the natural way.
All Natural HomeLogic products are non-toxic, safe, formulated for people with sensitive skin, and  are 100% plant and mineral derived.
 
 
As we all know, although Broxton is 6 years old, he is always going to be my baby!  That being said, I will always baby his skin (as long as he lets me) and try to keep his skin soft and healthy!  We were also sent the 2 in 1 Baby Wash / Shampoo from Tot Logic and it is a winner in our book.  I can put a little on the washcloth and he uses it to not only wash his hair, but also to clean his body!  No need for more bottles than necessary in our already crowded shower!  They have products from shampoo and conditioner to baby balm and bug repellent!  (These are must haves for when the new baby arrives!)  
A Natural Bath Wash For Babies of All Ages.
If there's any product you need from the TotLogic line, this sulfate free TotLogic 2 in 1 Wash & Shampoo is the one that does it all.
Just do a bubbly once-over with this 2 in 1 Baby Wash & Shampoo for clean, huggable and nourished skin and silky smooth hair.  Its naturally derived, gentle, and pure formula makes it suitable and safe for infants, toddlers, kids, and of course adults too!

New Orleans Style Gumbo #FridayFeast

Man, these days need to slow down!  I had no idea it was Friday until not too long ago...
Sorry for posting the FRIDAY FEAST late, but better late than never! 
 Hope you are in the mood to head to New Orleans, as I received this in my email.
This is from Ocean Catering Company.

I have not tried this yet and I will not be trying it until after the baby comes...
Let me know if you make it and what you think about it!  



New Orleans style Gumbo 
  •  Ingredients
  • 1lb. smoked, pulled chicken meat (about 1 fat chicken)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 pound smoked, Andouille sausage, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 5 tablespoons margarine
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 8 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 3 stalks celery chopped
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Cajun Seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons Gumbo File
  • 1/4 bunch flat leaf parsley, stems and leaves, coarsely chopped, plus chopped leaves for garnish
  • 4 cups beef stock (can be made from soup base)

  • 4 green onions, sliced, white and green part
  • 1lb small shrimp, peeled & deveined
  • 1/2lb steamed crawfish tails
  • 1/2lb steamed crab meat ( I like to use the “Special” but you can substitute whichever you like)

Directions
  • Heat the oil in a heavy bottomed Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the flour over the oil, add 2 tablespoons of margarine and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until brown, about 10 minutes. This is roux.  Let the roux cool.

When Broxton saw the previews for this movie, he knew he wanted to see it. He kept asking about the release date and when it finally arrived in the theaters, we were out of town.  Lucky for all of us,. we were visiting my parents and Broxton was able to talk them into going to see it with him.  The four of us went to see it and left laughing and talking about what a good movie it was. 
The thing is, he wanted to go see it again and again... with movie tickets being around $10 each here, we can't afford to go to the movies repeatedly, so we were excited when it was about to be released on Blu-Ray / DVD. As soon as it arrived, we had a movie night and enjoyed it, all over again!   Then, as soon as daddy had a night available, Broxton was able to talk him into a movie night and again, it was night of the museum!  Now, he has decided that if Ben Stiller can have that much fun as a night watchman, he wants to do that when he gets older!!!  Ha ha ha!!!!!
Now that Night At the Museum is available to watch at home, why not plan for a movie night soon?  To help get you and your family / friends excited about it, I have included a few activities to get things going!   
Fun bookmarks!!! 
I thought this was too cute, make your own museum about you!!!!

Broxton is really into Tic Tac Tow now!!

The Perils of Pauline

Carpool is my "me time" it is when I read books for me and escape for just a bit... I love books that are easy to read and don't require much thought.  (I feel sort of shameful saying this, but I am just being honest.)  Sort of like a beach book, if you will...  You know, something to pass the time and an easy read, but in a good way.  Not easy like childish, but easy like you don't have to read it more than once to figure out who is who and what is going on.  That was the case with The Perils of Pauline.  I thought the book was a good one.   In it, we meet Pauline and see how she deals with civilian life (No, you do not have to know anything about the military, except that she used to be in it.)  In this book, she balances being a mom (most of us know how tough that can be at times) a wife, a business woman (that gets the pink slip at the start of the book) and more.  Oh, throw in that she plays hockey and her husband is gone much of the time for work.  Did I mention that her daughter from her first marriage just ups and moves back home... with a girlfriend... and a dog????  Yeah, chaos.  Lots of chaos.. but it makes it for a great story, full of laughs and one that made me leave even earlier for carpool just to sneak in more reading time!  
 

DESCRIPTION - The Perils of Pauline

Life seems "picture perfect" for Army veteran Pauline Parril--a solid career, a loving (though slightly absent) husband, two adorable young children.  Perfect that is, until the usual Friday meeting at the office ends with a termination letter.
As Pauline navigates the difficulties of unemployment, she finds the handles of her world turning upside down. Her estranged daughter, Serenity, returns home with shocking secrets.  Her husband, Donald, is not at all who she knows him to be, and a handsome stranger opens her eyes to the complex worlds of poetry and temptation.
In this uproarious female comedy of just how one event can change the course of...well everything.  The Perils of Pauline follows an intrepid every-woman as she marches through the pressures of building the "perfect life," finding there's actually more to discover about yourself than you dreamed, and constantly answering the scariest question of adulthood: "What now?"

I think that books allow an escape from todays world, for the most part. Then, there are other books that are fascinating and educational.  For years, I have had a large library, but when we had Broxton the many, many books I bought for me turned into books for him and I love encouraging him to read.  I have some books still, but many have been sold or donated over the years.  I was given the opportunity to check out The World Almanac and Book of Facts for 2015.  To be honest, I was thinking it was something totally different, so when I started flipping through the pages, I was a bit surprised with all of the information and facts that were in this book.  Then, when we found out we were pregnant, I was thrilled to have this, as it will make a great gift to give to our little one, one day down the road!  What better than a book full of facts about the year they were born??? 
I think this not only would make a great gift for someone that loves facts and figures, but it would be a great book to give as a gift for a milestone year (birth, graduation or even marriage!)

Have You Heard? @airwickus Has Several New "Life Scents" Available

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.
 
Having a 6 year old in the house, we don't really do many candles.  I would love to have more, but we don't for two reasons...  One reason?  He thinks if a candle is lit, he MUST blow it out as soon as he notices it.  The second reason?  I don't want candles lit in rooms I am not in, but I do love walking into a room with a distinct aroma.
That being said, imagine the delight when I received the following email:
 
"Have you heard? Air Wick is once again changing the home fragrance category with their NEW Air Wick Life ScentsTM Collection. This first of its kind collection features new scent technology with constantly changing fragrances crafted to mimic real life experience. Unlike other home fragrances which feature only one scent, each scent uses patent-pending technology with three distinct fragrance notes that are easily experienced alone but also work together to provide one harmonious multi-dimensional experience which evokes unique, personal memories.
How It Works: With their new Mom’s Baking fragrance, one person may  smell vanilla first while another will immediately smell the scent of a homemade pie crust or  a layer of baked pear.
Air Wick has also launched its Scent Decorator, a new tool designed to promote self-expression in the home. Users are asked to choose a combination of images that match the environment they are looking to create at home. After selecting images, users are provided with a page detailing the desired mood, as well as Air Wick fragrances, home d├ęcor tips, and DIY projects they can use to curate their homes. "
 
We were sent a few different scents to try out and we already have them throughout the house!   I was excited to try the mist (pictured above) and as soon as I had the first spray going out, Broxton was begging me to put it in his room, as he absolutely loved it! 
 We have the mists in the bathroom and then the oils in the living rooms of the house.  I think it works best that way and wherever we go, we are greeted with a welcoming scent! 
I know many people enjoy the smell of baked goods or other food items, but I am not really a fan of them in the house as scents like this.  If I am baking a cake or something that is one thing, but not a constant scent like these products supply.  I do think it is neat that the smells work together to be harmonious, but also can work individually (that is just too cool to me!)  Are you a fan of the baking scents like this?  
 
Both the Everyday and Spring collections are available in Scented Oils and Freshmatic Automatic Spray Refills in the following scents:
 
Everyday
Say ‘Welcome Home’ with Mom’s Baking. Vanilla, Pie Crust, Baked Pear. Enjoy the aroma of caramelized pears with a hint of spice, baked inside a crumbly, buttery pie crust topped with cool vanilla cream. The fragrance creates a sense of coziness and inspires warm childhood memories at home.
Say ‘Get Away’ with Paradise Retreat. Coconut, Almond Blossom, Cherry. Bring home your own exotic isle with the aroma of almond blossoms and a concoction of creamy coconut and sweet cherries, without ever leaving your living room.
Say ‘Stay a While’ with Summer Delights. White Flowers, Melon, Vanilla. Use this scent to transform your home into a garden on a beautiful, breezy summer evening with its cool, fruity, floral combination of fresh cantaloupe slices, white flowers, and vanilla ice cream.
Say ‘Relax’ with Sweet Lavender Days. Red Currant, Lavender Petals, Spun Sugar. Let the intoxicating aroma of endless lavender fields, layered with dewy summer berries and warm sugar cane, create a sense of comfort, freshness and relaxation in your home.
 
Seasonal Spring Scents
Say ‘Cool Down’ with Lush Hideaway. Wild Berry, Coconut Water, Fresh Mint. Let the invigorating aroma wild berries, fresh garden mint and splashes of refreshing coconut water create a cooling effect within your home, transforming it into a lush rainforest.
Say ‘Let’s Reminisce’ with Mystical Garden. Rose, Raspberry, Marshmallow. Allow the blissful aroma of delicate pink roses and succulent plump raspberries, combined with sweet marshmallow to tell the stories of your childhood. Get lost in a maze of sweet memories, without leaving the comfort of your couch.
Say ‘Summer is Near’ with Turquoise Oasis. Driftwood, Sea Spray, Warm Breeze. Turn your home into a seaside retreat as a warm breeze carrying salty sea spray washes over you, bringing with it the invigorating aroma of weathered driftwood.
Say ‘Drift Away’ with Sunshine Cotton. Sunny Laundry, Sweet Sunshine, Coconut. Tell a story of warm sunny days at the beach, even during the dreariest April shower. This bright cheerful medley of fresh laundry, sweet sunshine and coconut will take you to the beach beneath gently swaying palm trees, warm sunshine and fluffy laundry-fresh towels.
