Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation. 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 th…

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…

Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation. 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 availab…

Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation. 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 b…

Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation.   If you are like me, I am never really too far from my phone. I honestly can not remember what I did before I had a cell phone!  (Hello, IMDB, GOOGLE and all the other sites I randomly access when I feel the need to find something out right that second!)  They say that phones are always covered in germs and I am sure with the elements around us on a daily basis it isn't helping.  Have you heard of DigiPals? They are super cute carriers that are available in 4 different animals.  You can choose between a penguin, a turtle, an owl or a monkey!  They are soft and not only do they carry your phone, they can be used to wipe it clean.  (You know that you get tired of those fingerprints being on the screen!)  Head over to the…

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. 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…

Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation. I love the Easter baskets that Broxton gets each year and I love that we always have such a great selection of cute books to add to it.  The bright colors, the beautiful flowers, the books are always so cute and festive!   We were sent a couple Disney books to get us geared up for Easter this year and of course, some even have stickers!  Talk about making kids excited!    I thought all the books were cute, because who doesn't just love Thumper?  Not to mention seeing who ends up in the missing bonnet, but I thought the Doc McStuffins lift the flap was a perfect way to have an indoor Easter Egg hunt!    All the books would make great gift ideas this Easter!

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? AirWick is once again changing the home fragrance category with their NEW AirWick 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 fea…
