Night at the Museum 3: Secret of the Tomb Review

We love having movie nights at home with the kids and usually try and make it a special event with popcorn and other special treats.  So when I was told that I had been chosen to host a Family Night with Night at the Museum – Secret of the Tomb (rated PG for mild action, some rude humor and brief language) to announce the availability of the movie on DVD, I was thrilled.

We started by printing off some of these adorable costume printables from Vocalpoint.  The kids chose their favorite characters and colored them.


My children adore the Night at the Museum movies and were over the moon when they saw this box of goodies on our doorstep! 


As expected; everyone loved the movie and asked to watch it again the following night.

Dial Miracle Oil Body Wash Review & Giveaway!


Who else is excited for Spring?  The weather and being outdoors is what I am most looking forward to after these long cold days of Winter.  But the winter has definitely taken a toll on the skin and made it incredibly dry.  So, when I was offered a chance to review the new Miracle Oil Body Wash by Dial I was thrilled.

When the body wash first arrived; I must admit I wasn't too sure about it.  I never knew that I cared what color my body wash was; but something about this orange color threw me off.  I also wasn't so sure how I felt about the scent of this body wash.  But, I had already committed to reviewing this product so I jumped in (literally, jumped in the shower).

Oh my goodness; I can not tell you how wrong I was about this body wash.  While I wasn't so sure of the smell at first; once inside the shower it was really a lovely smell.  My shower transformed into a spa.  Not only was the scent amazing; my skin felt so soft and clean afterwards.  I was hooked!

A few days later my wet daughter came running up to me after her Daddy had given her a bath.  I immediately asked what soap he had used on her; she smelt so amazing.  He said; "I just used that orange stuff because I forgot to grab hers".  That orange stuff was the Miracle Oil Body Wash by Dial.

Now for the best part!

Two lucky readers will win a coupon for a free bottle of this amazing body wash.

Berenstain Bears God Made You Special Book Review


I grew up reading the Berenstain Bears books; so when I was given the opportunity to review one of the newest books: The Berenstain Bears God Made You Special; I was thrilled.

“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.” Matthew 5:8

In this newest 8x8 softcover title in the Berenstain Bears Living Lights collection, the Bruins join the Bear family for a cookout and bring their cousin Tommy along. It isn’t long before the cubs start up a game of baseball and Sister soon notices that Tommy doesn’t play like the rest of the group. When Sister asks about Tommy, Mama takes the opportunity to talk to Sister about how God makes each of us unique in our own way. And that we all have special gifts and talents to share with the folks around us.

With the intolerance that surrounds us nowadays; it was refreshing to read a story to my children that taught them about acceptance.  Mother teaches the children that everyone was made special and that we all have our strengths and weaknesses.

My children loved this book as I knew they would and I loved it because it taught a wonderful lesson.
I also think this book would make a wonderful addition to any Easter Basket!

While going through my cabinets in the kitchen one day I realized I have an absurd amount of recipes stashed EVERYWHERE!  At one point I had a 3 ring binder; but inevitably I would have a recipe on a note card which didn't fit in the binder and was just tucked away in a cabinet.  I would always say that one day I would put them all together; but. . . .fast forward to last week where I found over 30 random recipes in my kitchen cabinets.

Right then and there I said that the madness must stop; I did a little research and came upon www.createmycookbook.com ; this was EXACTLY what I was looking for if not more.

Dollar Shave Club Review

https://www.dollarshaveclub.com/

I am so excited to share this review, it is perfect timing with the holidays as well.   My husband can be so incredibly hard to buy for at Christmas time that I am usually still searching for the perfect gift this time each year.

Luckily, that isn't the case this year; my husband is actually the one who introduced me to Dollar Shave Club.  He mentioned that he thought it was a pretty cool concept.

https://www.dollarshaveclub.com/

It couldn't be simpler; choose which blade you want; two, four, or six blades; pay only for the blades and they will ship right to your door every month.

Not only do they have the blades; but you can also pick up several accessories as well.  Choose their Shave Butter (which my husband is now obsessed with), Post Shave, and Wipes.

The boxes come as shown above and are filled with funny guy humor as well. 

If you are still searching for a Christmas gift for the man in your life; be sure to grab this one now!  Which is why I am including it in my 2014 Holiday Gift Guide!

Messy Beautiful Love Review


I was recently given the opportunity to review the book Messy Beautiful Love: Hope and Redemption for Real-Life Marriages by Darlene Schacht and was excited just by the title.  Because let's be honest; most love stories are bit messy at times.  I was eager to read a book that painted marriage and relationships as they really were rather than one that made marriage seem easy and romantic 24 hours a day.

Darlene Schacht, author of Messy Beautiful Love, tells women marriage can be messy, but it is also beautiful. Let me go ahead and breath out a sigh of relief.  I'm happy to know mine isn't the only messy marriage.

 Darlene Schacht reminds us that yes, all marriages are messy — we all falter and fail, and sometimes we want to give up.  However, through her wisdom and advice; you will gain different strattegies to learn to grow in your marriage and with your spouse.  I've walked away from Messy Beautiful Love with renewed respect for my husband and a refreshed dedication to our lifelong commitment.

I truly enjoyed reading this book and I believe it would benefit anyone whether they are in year one or 47 with their spouse. 

Disclosure: This book was provided to me in  order to facilitate this review.  All opinions are 100% my own.
