Crazy Aarons Thinking Putty - Great Gift Idea! #Review #AD

Image
When I was younger, I remember that on Halloween, we went by to see my grandparents, then we went trick or treating in the neighborhood.  When Broxton was born, we started that tradition with him.  Luckily for him, he had a few years where he not only got to go by and see his grandparents before going in the neighborhood, he actually got to see one of his great grandmothers too!  It was the sweetest thing, she had gone and got him a stuffed animal for his treat (He was not even a year old) and be being the sentimental person, I still have it today!  Anyways, with Broxton and Savannah both trick or treating, I don't go giving them candy for anything... Between Halloween parties/ trick or treating, then Thanksgiving goodies and then Christmas parties and goodies... we do fine on sweet treats!    ( Not to mention, when more candy is in the house, it calls our name to eat ALL-THE-TIME and we don't need anymore temptation! ha ha ha!)  That being said, I was excited to see Crazy Aaro

Travels With Parky Pigeon - Flying to Our Local LFL #REVIEW #AD

Image
 Travels with Parky Pigeon is a book that we were able to review.  It was a cute book about a Pigeon that just wasn't like his family...  while he tried his best, it just did not work out that way! At the end of the book, there was a section called "Parky's World View" I really enjoyed it and actually learned a bit from it!  Like, did you know that "27,000 trees are felled each day for toilet paper.  Paper can be recycled only 6 times- after that the fibers are too weak to hold together." This was Episode 1 - So check out the series to see what Parky is up to next!  We are actually about to go donate this to one of our local Little Free Libraries, so someone else can enjoy!  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.

The Unofficial Hocus Pocus Cookbook - #Review #AD

Image
 Let me just go ahead and be honest with you... We are not big Hocus Pocus fans! Don't get me wrong, we don't dislike it, we just aren't ones that are avid watchers of the movie... We actually JUST watched it for the first time the other night.  Mainly because EVERYONE we know (for the most part, some exaggeration here you guys!) seems to LOVE this movie.  Anyways, not wanting people laughing about me not knowing anything about Hocus Pocus, we ended up watching it. It is a cute movie and by watching it, now I know what my friends are talking about!  When I was given the opportunity to review The Unofficial Hocus Pocus Cookbook, I knew I did want to check it out!!!

A Kombucha We Enjoy - KOE For All! #Review

Image
 Alright, I have heard of Kombucha for quite some time.  I have actually bought a few brands before and I am sorry, but that junk was absolutely disgusting.   I have purchased in cans and bottles, from all different type stores and nope. Nope. NOPE.  Not for me.  I was emailed about KOE Kombucha and thought, why not?!   Then... the wait began.  I actually asked a coworker if she would try it with me, as she was an avid Kombucha drinker and when I didn't like it, she could finish it off.  (Not to mention, it is fun sharing things with my work family!)  She told me make sure it was COLD and NOT TO SHAKE IT.   I was ready to have her try one, but I can't lie, they were calling my name and I was wanting to try one so bad!   The watermelon just looked / sounded so refreshing, so I popped it open.  OH MY - it was SO GOOD!!!   I didn't really even taste any of the vinegary taste that I was warned about.  I had two that was to be taken and tried out at work:  The Raspberry Dragonfr

Never Too Early to Start Christmas Shopping - or Buy more books!! #Review

Image
 You know my family and you know that we love to read.  If you are new here...a  quick background...  When I was younger, my Nana would have me read the newspaper to her to expand my vocabulary. My cousin and I lived for the summer reading programs at the local library. My mom loves to read and I am trying with everything I have in me to pass along the love of reading to my kids.  Broxton used to love to read and would put books on his list all the time, and don't get me started on book fairs!  Savannah is following along in the same way.  Our house has a fair share of books.. some in each room, as you never know when you might want to grab a book!  We have even started putting little free libraries in our community. (We started with one in Lithia Springs, Ga at the Harley Dealership.)  Now, we have one at the local Ear, Nose and Throat Doctor and another is about to go out at a restaurant.  With me being fortunate to review books, we get them and read and enjoy.  Some we keep for

Oldie But Goodie... I Still Believe #MovieReview #Ad

You know how life gets crazy busy at times and you just need to make yourself take a break for you and slow down?  That is how it is for me, so I decided to take it back to a movie in our collection that makes me slow down and appreciate everything.  Just thought I would bring it back for you guys as well!    Okay y'all, you know I love the military... and with that, I love Gary Sinise.  He is an active supporter of our men and women that serve/ have served.  I was excited to get I Still Believe as a movie to watch and he was in it!   This movie is a great one and really hits the heart, have you heard of it?  I did not know it was from the creators of I Can Only Imagine (and to be honest, I knew the song... but did not know there was a movie, but I LOVE THE SONG!)   You know me, I shed a few tears while watching this one, but as we all know... sometimes tears are a good thing.  Let me know if you have seen either movie!     FTC Compliant Review Policy:    The product(s) featured in
