We received product to facilitate this review. All opinions expressed are our own. We only give honest reviews. I don't know about you, but Mercer Mayer storybooks have been a part of our family for quite some time. I remember them from when I was young (see, I'm not THAT old!) My boys enjoy them just as much as we did as kids, and that excites me...just a little! (Yeah, I really love reading the books to my boys and am always happy when they choose a Mercer Mayer book!) When the box arrived on our doorstep the other day my boys were all over it! They knew what was inside because of the fun decorative box and they couldn't wait to rip it open! Inside the box were two of the Little Critter stuffed animals...Little Critter and Little Sister (my boys of course ripped sister's bow off and called her little brother! ha ha!) Also in the box were 2 hardcover books...Little Critter's Bedtime Storybook and Little Critter Jack and the Beanstalk. (Those aren't the only options … [Read more...]

I Run in Mizuno Shoes!


We received free product to facilitate this review. We only give honest reviews. All opinions expressed are our own. Now that I own a pair of Mizuno Wave Paradox shoes I'm not sure how I ever went without them! These are the support shoe like no other! Most people think of a support shoe as those ugly nursing shoes or some other type of shoe that is big and unappealing. The Mizuno is nothing like this at all! In fact, they are quite attractive! (I've received many compliments and had people ask me where I got mine). Mizuno's Wave Paradox is the lightest and sleekest support running shoe on the market! Rather than placing extra material on the outside of the shoe, which would in turn add extra weight, making it harder to run, Mizuno took a different route and focused on the shoes sidewall and were able to engineer an extremely lightweight support chassis at only 10.6 ounces in the Men's model. This allows them to achieve utmost stability without the added weight. I am so happy to … [Read more...]

We Went to the Dixie Stampede in Pigeon Forge TN

dixie stampede

We received discounted tickets to the Dixie Stampede to facilitate this review. We only give honest reviews. All opinions expressed are our own. This wasn't our first time visiting the Dixie Stampede. We've actually been there a few times and our boys even chased the chickens once! If you've been to the show, you'll know what I mean! For those that have never been to or heard of the Dixie Stampede... The Dixie Stampede is a dinner show in Pigeon Forge Tennessee. Now, when I say entertainment, I certainly mean it! The Dixie Stampede is not like any show we have ever seen before! The performers are professional and some of the stunts they perform are even dangerous---like riding 2 horses at once...while standing! There are people flying in the air (it's quite beautiful), professional horseback riders performing stunts you won't see anywhere else, and the food....oh the FOOD! The food is amazing! I've heard people talk about the food in the south and how much they love it, but we … [Read more...]

A Snack We All Enjoy from Nonni’s #ad

NONNI'S   Who's On Top giveaway social post

We have always been a fan of Nonni's, and we were happy to review the new Nonni's Biscotti Bites! All opinions expressed are our own. We only give honest opinions when trying out new products. For those of you who haven't heard of Nonni's (although I'd be quite surprised to hear that someone hadn't heard of Nonni's), they are the creator of the number one selling biscotti! Now, let's move on to the products we tried... Nonni's sent us Double Chocolate Salted Caramel and Very Berry Almond Biscotti Bites to review. Is your mouth watering yet? Just saying the names makes my mouth water! These came in the new bite-sized pieces. My boys were super excited, to say the least, however I think Mommy was the most excited of all! I LOVE dipping the bit sized pieces into my coffee and also eating them with tea...yummy! These new bite-sized Nonni's Biscottis are made with only the highest-quality ingredients, including real almond pieces, dark chocolate drizzles, luscious caramel bits, sweet … [Read more...]

*I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a gift card to the store to purchase items  for review purposes. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.* Were you surprised when you read the title of my post? I would have been had I seen the title on another site prior to learning the great news! What news? The news that Kohl's has teamed up with Office Max to offer school supplies!!! The school supplies are new this year to Kohl's and will only be offered in store, so be sure to head over to your local Kohl's store to check it out for yourself!

What’s Summer Without a Deck?


  *I may be compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. Even though I may receive compensation for  posts or advertisements, I will always give my  honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences on those topics or products. Compensated   Our family enjoys the outdoors so much. We love spending time in the woods and hiking and really enjoy cookouts. One thing that has been great about the last 2 homes we have lived in is that they both have had a deck. I'm not sure what we did before we had our deck! It seems that for many the interior of their home is great, picture perfect, but the outside is lacking something...it's lacking the entertainment spot, the spot where everyone can gather and enjoy the company of one another. Softwoods timber decking is one company that can make the backyard look like a completely different place. There are so many different choices when it comes to decks. I was quite surprised to learn … [Read more...]

Protecting Yourself From Radiation #ad #BellyArmor

belly armor

We received product to facilitate this review. We only give honest reviews. All opinions expressed are our own. When we were asked to review the Belly Armor protective blanket I jumped on the offer! My husband thought I was a little silly at first, until I explained to him exactly what this product was and the reason I wanted it. His opinion of the product changed very quickly! What is Belly Armor? Belly Armor is a patented Radiashield technology that blocks 99.9$ of every day radiation caused by cell phones, laptops, iPads and more! That's right, they have come out with a wonderful product that you can simply throw across your lap, chest, or any other part of the body to protect you from these harmful waves of radiation! I don't know about you, but this excites me! I have often sat with my laptop on my lap and wondered what sort of damage I was doing to my body. The laptop would get a little warm on my legs and then I would get nervous. Now, I place the Belly Armor on my lap … [Read more...]
