Celebrate Fireworks at Six Flags over Georgia

You know how much we love Six Flags.  We went off and on when I was younger... Even bought season passes when I moved up here to go to college.  Then, motherhood came along and I just didn't think about taking my little one up there... Until now.  With the opening of Bugs Bunny Boomtown and now the DC Super Friends Area, he has a great time and I don't have to ride the rides with him!! Win-Win around here.
I just wanted to tell you that if you are looking for somewhere to go and see the fireworks this year, Six Flags has you covered!

Summer Sale and Christmas in July @LDCAtlanta

Are you in or near Atlanta?  Have a kid that loves Lego?  If so, you need to take them to check out the Legoland Discovery Center in Atlanta.  We went once and Broxton fell in love. We ended up getting season passes.  We made it a point to go once a month (had to make sure we got use out of it since we paid for it!!!)  Now that he is older, we don't go as often, but it is still a nice treat for us to go from time to time. He always has a good time and the last time we went was when they had changed it all and opened up the Pirate area.  We are due for a trip back, so hope we can make it a day before summer is over.    I know they are always doing great things, so I just wanted to share a couple new things with you. ( I really think the Annual pass can't be beat! For $31.50 you can get an annual pass... talk about a great "early" Christmas gift!)

Summer BBQ must haves

Is it hot where you are at?  The temperatures keep climbing here, so that means more time to BBQ!!! I have worked with Trudeau in the past, so when I saw these cool products, I wanted to share with you!  Out of the ones listed below, I think we would be most likely to use the Oven and Grill gloves. That would actually be amazing for our traditional low country boil!!!  

Oven and Grill Gloves
Get your grill on! Perfect for kitchen, barbeque, fire pits and handling hot surfaces around the house.  A safety necessity when either grilling or baking, these gloves have anti-slip silicone grips on both sides. The gloves offers wrist and forearm protection and allows for maximum dexterity.  Flame-resistant (up to 428 °F) exterior fibers protect while holding grill tools over open flame or pulling hot pans out of the oven. $39.99

DNA Hydration Double Wall Beverage Bottle
For anyone looking to stay hydrated in the heat or during physical activity, there’s nothing like a condensation free, double-walled insulated bottle for keeping water and hydration beverages icy cold and refreshing. Starting from the top, the DNA Hydration Double Wall features a flip leak resistant cap, a stay open lid and an ergonomic easy to clean polished nozzle. Its wide mouth allows for adding ice cubes. An attached carry strap and ability to fit in most car cup holders, these bottles are perfect for all activities. There is even a water level indicator to measure how much you drink, and how much remains in the bottle. Available in three fashion colors: black, purple and blue, is BPA free and made from shock resistant Tritan™ with a Lifetime Warranty. 17 oz. capacity $22.99
 
Silicone Slap-On Beverage / Beer Can & Bottle Koozie
Cheers to a bar accessory that is fun to use and easy to store! Simply slap this koozie on the drink of your choice to make it non-skid for a better grip. Whether it comes in a can or a bottle, your beverage will be kept cold since the koozie acts as insulation. And since it's made of silicone, the Slap-On Koozie also prevents condensation, so you can keep your drink chilled and your hands dry.  $6.99

I honestly love all the products listed (and have yet to be disappointed with anything we have reviewed from Trudeau.  What would you put on your summer wish list?

Zero Sugar and Zero Sugar - Xyience Energy Drink

Energy drinks normally taste pretty nasty... or they are okay but make me either not feel much of anything, or either I get really jittery and then have a sugar crash and feel like crap.  Having a little one that is trying to adjust her own sleeping schedule at night is totally messing with my energy during the waking hours.  (We also have a 7 year old on summer break that thinks sleep is not needed at all over the summer.)  So when I read of Xyience Energy Drink, I wanted to try it out.

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.

We were sent a couple different xyience flavors to try and I will be honest, I was glad they sent a few different flavors, as the first was not one I would buy again.  The first up was Tangerine.  It tasted like a creamsicle, so the flavor was tasty, but more for a treat.  A bit too sweet for me in an energy drink. Weird, since it is zero sugar. Anyways, I still drank it, but again... too sweet and more of a treat drink versus one I would grab for a boost of energy. The others were more up my alley as far as the flavor and I was surprised that I actually enjoyed the ones sent to me.  
Out of the flavors I was sent, the one I enjoyed the most was the Blue Pomegranate.  So far I have noticed that I am not as tired during the day after drinking one.  Also, when I do start to get tired, its just like normal with no crashing feeling.
I noticed that you can buy the xyience online in 12 packs.  While that is great, I do wish they sold variety packs for those that like to mix things up.  
Are you a fan of energy drinks?
