Summer time means more time out and about, as well as at home.  If you are looking for something to get the kids offline and engaged, think about Snap Ships!   We were sent a couple to review and both kids love them!    FTC Compliant Review Policy:    The product(s) featured in this rev iew were provided free of cost to me by the manufacturer or representing PR agency for the sole purpose of product testing.

Like I said - we were sent Snap Ships for review and both kids love them!  I love that they both enjoy it, although they have years between them. I know lots of kids enjoy time online... and don't get me wrong, mind do too!  It is nice to find a toy that keeps them engaged and watch their face light up while playing.  With all that 2020 brought us, I wanted to make sure to share the new Snap Ships that were released in 2021.  (See Press Release below) These unique drone builds--3 Forge and 3 Komple

 On Wednesday nights, we go to church.  The kids go to youth classes and I am in a connect group with other adults.  Now that summer is here, they still have a youth program, but the adult class I was in has ended.  No need to worry, I have started taking that time they are in their program to have time for me... Up first?  Back to a love of mine.. reading!  I was sent the book Broken and Beautiful for review and I have enjoyed having the time to read it and spend time alone, embracing all that He has planned for me.   FTC Compliant Review Policy:    The product(s) featured in this rev iew were provided free of cost to me by the manufacturer or representing PR agency for the sole purpose of product testing.

Planning our #Biloxi trip #Margaritaville is on the list! (Again!)

 So, today is July 4th and most people are out celebrating, me?  I am sitting at home planning our trip to Biloxi.  We go each summer, but didn't get to go last year, obviously.  We are headed out soon and we are all looking forward to it.  It cracks me up when people hear I am taking the kids to Biloxi, but they are always surprised to know there is fun for the kids too!  FTC Compliant Review Policy:    The product(s) featured in this rev iew were provided free of cost to me by the manufacturer or representing PR agency for the sole purpose of product testing.

A few years ago, Margaritaville opened in Biloxi and since then, we have added that as a must stop for our trip!  We absolutely love going there!  Once you arrive, they have a nice parking area.  You can choose to valet, or self park.  You head on inside and go up the escalator.  Then... BOOM!!!!   Games galore!   Load a card with the money you

Headed off to college? @HappyWaxMelts would be a great gift that keeps on giving #review

Bringing back and oldie but goodie from back in 2017 to share since I know there are kids that will be heading off to college soon.  I know back when I was in college, we were not allowed to have candles in our dorm rooms.  (Not sure if that is still true these days, but in the old days, that was the case!)   As much as I love candles, it really isn't always a good thing to have around.   Keep Happy Wax in mind if that is true with you!   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.

Have you seen #Raya yet? We loved it! #AD

 To say that COVID changed things is an understatement.  Before COVID, we used to go to the movies and have a movie date at least once a month.  Sometimes it was just the kids and I, other times it was with the grandparents as well.  It was always a great day and the kids and I were always so excited.  Once COVID hit, things changed and we stayed indoors.  Movies were no longer a place to go and experience, but you better believe that when they announced we could watch a NEW DISNEY MOVIE at home (Yay, thanks for Disney Plus!) It just made sense to me.  We had snacks, we had drinks, we had the movie and the cold temps and the darkness... It was great and you know what i t was perfect to be able to know that we now own it.  We have watched it over and over again and you know how much she loves the Raya toys?  **Major mom points when I got her RAYA LEGO Bricks! ) FTC Compliant Review Policy:    The product(s) featured in this review were provided free of cost to me by the manufacturer or

Team Kong or Team Godzilla? #GodzillavsKong #AD

Image
 Not going to lie, I have never watched a King Kong movie... nor have I watched a Godzilla movie.  (Broxton swears I have, but I honestly don't remember that!)  Well, although I have never watched either, I am very familiar with the names of both.  When I heard that Godzilla vs. Kong was coming out, I knew that it would be a good one.  Broxton was so excited and could not stop talking about it, so when I had the chance to review it, I knew it was going to be a great movie night! We were so excited to see it, but Savannah was totally against it!   We had movie night planned and I was so excited to enjoy the movie with my boy!    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.

Sweet Penny and the Lion - #SummerReading #Ad #Review

Image
Although it is summer, we still need to keep their minds fresh.  Reading is always a great joy for me and I hope to pass it along to the kids. Broxton used to love it, but now he is trying to not be a fan of it... Lucky for me, Savannah still enjoys and there is nothing like her asking me to let her read me a book!   I wanted to update a post from back in the day as it is a good read that I want to introduce her to it again.   Sweet Penny was a good read and I have to admit I love the photos!    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.
