When we lived in our apartment, I knew that we would not paint or do anything permanent to the walls, so I was happy to learn about Wall Pops.  I enjoyed the ease of peeling the art off and sticking it on the wall (not to worry if you messed up, just peel and re-stick where you want it go.)  When we bought our house, I knew that I was going to want to have something like that again. (Yes, we brought the original with us, but I needed one for another room.  Having a son with a very social life gets to needing organization!)

We were sent the Globe Trotter Organization Decal Kit and I fell in love.  We don't travel nearly as much as I would love to ... lets be honest here, it is so much easier to travel when you are single and you can just plan a trip and go versus when you are married and have kids and have to work around so many schedules and a tighter budget!   So, when the globe trotter kit showed up, I knew I would be happy at least dreaming of fun locations to travel to in my mind!!!  
The Globe Trotter Organization Decal Kit comes with so much to help you be organized! 
There is a corkboard, a memo board, a monthly calendar and a weekly calendar.  Being that they are dry erase, it can keep up with the hectic schedules of everyone in the family! 
(I would show you ours, but honestly, I don't want everyone to know our schedule for the month, as much as I love you all, that is a bit too personal!) 
 

With Savannah making her arrival this summer, I have decided to go with an OWL theme. I know good and well that I will not be painting anything in her room...  Tastes change and I am not going to repaint every so often, but with Wall Art from Wall Pops, it is affordable (both monetarily and time wise) to just change it up with the mood / season! 
I found the
Hoot and Hangout  Tree Kit and fell in love!!!  Tell me, don't you agree it would be adorable in her nursery??  Friends keep asking what theme I have and how I am decorating, I keep answering with " Owl theme and we have 1 picture to hang up." If I got this, I am sure to impress them when they come to visit! 
So, what do you think of
Peel and Stick?  I think it is a great idea and so easy to add so much to a room.  This would also be awesome for kids going off to college, as so many dorms don't want you painting or hanging things up.

When you have a 6 year old, you get plenty of questions.  Crazy questions that make you ask where it even came from to questions where you have to look up the answer to know for yourself.  The great thing about asking questions is the fact that you are learning when you get the answer (and you are also learning where their mind is when they are asking all these questions.) 
We attend a great church that teaches Broxton things in the Bible, but that doesn't mean he knows it all.  Let's be honest, I know I don't know all that the Bible teaches, so how could he?  I was happy to see that National Geographic has released a book that is perfect for his inquisitive mind.  It is called 1,000 Facts About the Bible and I love how the pages are laid out!  Each 2 page spread is full of information!!! 
Some pages are with maps, photos or illustrations.
 
Some things you will know, some things took me by surprise.  From learning facts about Angels to Noah's Ark, Water and Dessert... You are sure to turn each page to learn more!  At least that is how much we enjoyed it! 
Some pages are just the facts, nothing but the facts. 
 
We have really enjoyed how kid friendly and full of information this book has been.  I know it is one that Broxton will be happy to share with his baby sister when she gets here and has questions on her own!  Do you have a Bible Fact book like this at home?  I highly recommend you getting one! 
 
A few facts before you go:
According to Deuteronomy, males 20 years and older could be made to join the army. Men married less than a year did not have to join.
Called " the most magnificent building ever erected on earth," King Nebuchadnezzars  Hanging Gardens of Babylon had five courtyards and terraces that held one of every plant and tree in his empire. 
 
The end of the book features a glossary, annotations and even an Index!
Make sure you check it out.

Give the Gift of Pain Relief - @salonpas To The Rescue

Have you started thinking about Fathers Day gift idea's yet?  Well, don't worry, since I have a great idea for you!  When it comes to giving gifts to my parents, it is hard to come up with something... They seem to have all they want and need, so I have to try and think outside the box. 
For several gift giving occasions, I have given my mom something I know she needs and wants...  SalonPas!   Having said that, I think that anyone that receives SalonPas would be thrilled!  Just buy an assortment of products and make a great gift bag for them! 
What exactly is SalonPas?  From their site:
A welcome alternative for pain sufferers including those who prefer to avoid the use of oral OTC pain relief medication labeled for only minor aches and pains. Unlike an oral medication, the active ingredients in SALONPAS® is absorbed through the skin and go directly to the pain site.
SalonPas offers patches (that is the main product my mom keeps stocked at all times.) 
They also offer a Jet Spray and a Relief Gel.  Personally, I think that the Jet Spray is great for hard to reach area's, but as I said, my mom is all about that patch! 
If you are not sure what you need, let me tell you how to find THE product for you.
Just head on over to the SalonPas site and you can look 2 different ways.
The first way is to just go straight to the SalonPas Products and see what they offer.
The second way is to look by researching your symptoms.  What pain do you have?  Arthritis?  Joint? Muscle?  Lower Back?  Just click on your symptom and you can see what would be best for you.  The best part of the site (to me) is their comparison link.  The thing is, it doesn't just compare one thing.  It compares the benefits, the quantity, the duration and more. 
I love that you can pick up SalonPas at places like Wal-Mart, Target, CVS, Walgreens, other stores and you can even order it online. 
If you are like me and have a hard time finding the perfect gift, why not give the gift of pain relief?  I know it would make them happy when they open the gift... and when they use it!  Talk about a gift that keeps on giving!  (With so many races going on right now, this would be perfect to give a runner in your life!)
