Kerusso Review & Giveaway~Ends December 17ended

I received this T-Shirt from Kerusso.com! Along with a "My Faithful Friends" puppy playset (for my daughter!) The T-Shirt says "I'm proud to be a Christian Mom

can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.

—Philippians 4:13"

This shirt is awesome! I LOVE IT! Kerusso is a Christian T-Shirt Company, that's awesome! We need more stores like this! I also love the bright pink color! The lettering on the T-Shirt doesn't look like it will come off very easily, which is great! I don't like it when the shirts I buy wear out, or the lettering rubs off!

Next, I'm going to tell you about the "My Faithful Friends" puppy playset, which Kerusso has offered to give an additional set away to one of my lucky readers! This adorable playset is just like Littlest Pet Shop, except it's 3 adorable pups! The dogs little heads turn, they're like little bobbleheads!

As we begin Puppy Mill Action Week on Nov. 28, I would like to warn everyone not to put cruelty on their shopping lists this year.

The holidays are a busy season for puppy sales, and people need to know when they are unknowingly supporting a puppy mill.

Puppy mills are inhumane breeding facilities that produce puppies in large numbers. They are designed to maximize profits and commonly disregard the physical, social and emotional health of the dogs. The breeding dogs at puppy mills live their entire lives in cages, and the poor conditions cause puppies to have more physical and behavioral problems than dogs from good sources.

The best way to stop puppy mills is for consumers to stop supporting them. To find a puppy from a reputable source, visit your local animal shelter or rescue organization or find a reputable breeder and visit their premises in person to see how and where your puppy’s parents are living.

Again, the holiday season often sees many animals given as gifts; please ensure when considering this, that the recipients’ ability to properly care for the animal is also a factor. Too often animal provided as gifts are returned to your local shelter shortly afterward, as they were an unwanted gift or an inaccurate fit in the recipient’s lifestyle.

Your Onslow County Animal Shelter, located at 244 Georgetown Road in Jacksonville, has many wonderful missed breed and pure-bred puppies and dogs (as well as kittens and cats) waiting for their forever homes. You can also find may other local rescue groups, some breed-specific, at petfinder.org, www.petharbor.org and pets911.com.

Additionally, a checklist of good breeder characteristics is available at www.humanesociety.org/puppy. Responsible pet purchasing, adoption and ongoing guardianship takes effort; but it’s worth it to do things right and find the canine companion of a lifetime.

Remember that Puppy Mill Action Week is Nov. 28 to Dec. 4. Contact your local elected officials to support ordinances that ban puppy sales in pet shops and open market sales, and encourage your local pet stores to become puppy friendly by discontinuing puppy sales from puppy mills and signing the “Puppy Friendly Pet Stores” pledge through the Humane Society of the United States.

People who love dogs need to help stop them from being mistreated by encouraging responsible guardianship and making sure they aren’t supporting a puppy mill.

Please donate anything you can HERE thank you!!

Editors: Safe and Happy Halloween Tips:

Acknowledging the potential dangers this spooky holiday can sometimes present, parents and children should always keep the following tips in mind as they trick or treat.

10 Tips for a Safe and Happy Halloween

Travel only in familiar neighborhoods.
Only stop at houses or apartment buildings that are well lit. Remain on the porch and never enter a person’s house.
Always travel in small groups, accompanied by an adult if under the age of 12.
Avoid very long costumes and oversized shoes, which can easily cause you to trip.
Wear reflective tape on costumes and bags so you are visible to traffic and other trick-or-treaters.
Walk, do not run, from house to house.
Always walk on sidewalks. In neighborhoods with no sidewalks, always walk on the left side of the street, facing traffic.
Always cross streets as a group on established crosswalks.
When possible use makeup instead of masks. Besides being uncomfortable, masks can obstruct a child’s view of traffic, steps, and holiday decorations.
Never eat candy until a parent or responsible adult can inspect it.

Giantmicrobes.com Review & Giveaway~Ends December 17ended

Giantmicrobes sent me one of thier new vinyl figures for review! You can buy the whole set of vinyl figures for $49.95, or $12.95 each, on the GiantMicrobes website!
When we got the package, my daughter saw the mailman drop off the package, so she whined until I opened it! So I did, and inside was "Smooch", the kissing disease, and "Nibble", the bed bug! (the giveaway!) My daughter opened "Smooch" because it's pink..so Nibble is the giveaway! And I will be sending it to the winner! When we opened "Smooch", there was a little flip book, it shows "Smooch" winking at you, and then blowing you a kiss! She also came with a big sticker of herself! The figures come unattatched, you have to put th em together! This is a great way for kids to learn about diseases and sicknesses! When they're having fun, they tend to actually take more in! My daughter loves "Smooch" so much, she even sneaks her into bed with her! (She told me she's soft, cuz she knows I won't let her bring hard toys into bed!)
My daughter carries her little "Smooch" with her in a little purse, and she tells her friends all about the kissing disease too! We love them!!

**Special thanks to Giantmicrobes for sending Nibble for the giveaway and Smooch for the review!**

The chore lists or jobs to be done are easily assigned because they are printed on static cling vinyl for easy selection of the assignments that best suit your child. Additional chore checklist items can simply be written in with the included write on wipe off crayons.
The colorful matching rainbow stickers make marking the chart fun to see the full rainbow shape as the jobs are completed! Other Creative Changes products include a Potty Chart Family Job Chart, homework chart, and many others. The best thing is that these charts are very affordable. Child’s job chart, for example, costs only $1.95! Check out thier website! The Homework Chart is a must for us!

HearthSong is a unique online store that carries toys you'll feel good about giving. I have to tell you I felt like a little kid all over again when they sent me The Great Big Outdoor Playball (GBOB) to review! As soon as the package arrived I rounded up my daughter, and a pump, and we headed out back to try this ball out!
It was very easy to inflate, especially with the Electric pump that is also available for purchase. You just have to find the air opening to each section and put the nozzle inside and it airs up in about 15 seconds.
It does take awhile to inflate, but the kids LOVED watching it "magically" transform from a flat pancake to a Huge Ball. All in all it took me about 20-30 minutes total to blow the whole thing up.
The recommended age is 6 and up, my daughter is 5, but I think It's perfect!
Thanks to HearthSong, we had a great time playing with the GBOB. Some neighbors even came over and played in it too! I can definately see this being a hit at any type of family gathering, like family reunions, BBQ or even birthday's. I can't wait till winter rolls around cause I can see this thing being a blast in the snow too!

Hearthsong has offered to give one of my readers a $50 gift certificate for thier website!

BikeGlow Review & Giveaway~Ends November 2closed

I had the fun opportunity of reviewing a BikeGlow Safety Light for my daughter's bike and it is really cool! the light is a wire that coils around the frame of your bike, so that your bike is highly visible by traffic and much more, keeping mt daughter safe as she rides. The BikeGlow has three lighting modes: Steady, Slow Flash and Fast Flash. We have tried all three and each one is fantastic!! I believe that every mom should have one of these on their kids bikes, to ensure that their child is safe while biking! It comes with all the tools needed for assembily and it runs on 2 AA batteries. Also, the BikeGlow is completely waterproof so kids like mine, who are extremely forgetful do not have to put in on at the begining of every ride and remove it at the end.

If you are looking into something like this for your kids or even yourself for those early morning, late night bike rides, you can get one for $24.95 at BikeGlow.com

BIKEGLOW has offered to give one lucky reader thier very own BikeGlow! (PINK!)

Ballreich's Chips Review & Giveaway~Ends October 17ended

Balreich sent me thier SPECIAL All Occasion Basket Original
Send a gift everyone can enjoy!!! Great for any occasion! It's only $15.00! What do you and your family like to snack on? In my home everyone likes something different. I received the perfect gift from Ballreich's for snacking in my home!

My daughter is a pretzel & popcorn fan and she likes all kinds of pretzels and popcorn! Above is the picture of the basket sent to me. It had a very nice selection of snacks and the colorful basket
was very appealing to me. I loved their presentation in the basket. And if you check the site to see
about ordering this for someone, you will be pleasantly surprised at the price of the basket! It is such a deal
I just couldn't believe it. This is a great gift for the boss, for a friends bachelor party, a friends Superbowl or
World Series partys, lots of things like that! The main thing is to remember to order on time!

I liked the Cheese Popcorn best, then the Baked Potato Chips, and the Ruffled Chips. These were all not
too salty whereas I found some of their items too salty for my taste. You probably wont notice as my family has noticed that some of the meds I am on must be changing my taste buds.

The wonderful people at Ballreich's Chips are giving 1 of my lucky readers the same basket that I received and you will be in for a treat!

Aurora's Super Soakers Review & Giveaway~Ends October 11ended

Aurora has a new line: Softy Soakers! Today when the UPS came, I was in the bathroom, when I came out, my daughter said "Mom look what the UPS guy gave me! He's so nice!" She told me she named her purple seahorse "Indigo", because she's purple, and they were watching a movie together! I said "Can you put your movie on pause for a minute? I wanna show you a special trick!" And we went in the kitchen, got a bowl full of water, and put the seahorse in! The Fanta-Sea assortment includes a sea horse, octopus, hammerhead shark, dolphin, sea turtle and alligator, and each plus sells for just $10. Like other Aurora toys I've reviewed, this one is a very soft plush toy, except this one has a kind of "cushy/squishy" feel. And like other Aurora toys, this one comes in some bright, super fun colors. And to bring a little more fun to the table, they grow in water. What kid won't love that? My second fav. is the pink octopus, but I like the dolphin too, and, oh they're all just so cute! My daughter has not put "Indigo" down since she got her! She even asked me if she can take her to school with her tomorrow! I said "Sure, but she's really shy, so she has to stay in your backpack all day!" Aurora is celebrating thier 30th Anniversary!

Peanut Butter & Co. Review!

First, I got to review Peanut Butter & Co.'s Chocolate Dreams! Who doesn't love a little chocolate with thier peanut butter!? Thier all natural peanut butter is blended with rich dark chocolate. It's like a peanut butter cup in a jar! I love Reeses! Great on a sandwiches, but just as wonderful spooned over ice cream, spread on fruits, or simply eaten out of the jar! It's equally delicious as an ingredient in your all-time favorite baked goodies like chocolate cake and bread pudding. It contains no cholesterol, no trans fats, no hydrogenated oils, and no high-fructose corn syrup. It is also gluten-free, certified vegan, and certified kosher pareve by the Orthodox Union. The shelf life is 6 months after opening, if stored in a cool, dry place.

Next, I reviwed Mighty Maple! Thier all-natural peanut butter is blended with yummy maple syrup. People have been saying that they love to spread peanut butter on pancakes and waffles for years. They love the way the rich and creamy peanut butter blends with sticky, sweet maple syrup to create an unbelievable taste sensation. This new variety of peanut butter is a tasty way to enjoy two great flavors - try it on toast, stirred over oatmeal, or on a sandwich with crispy bacon! Spponfuls of this Maple Syrup Peanut Butter is a nice treat too!

It contains no cholesterol, no trans fats, no hydrogenated oils, and no high-fructose corn syrup. It is also gluten-free, certified vegan, and certified kosher pareve by the Orthodox Union. The shelf life is 6 months after opening, if stored in a cool, dry place.

Teton Sports Review & Giveaway~Ends September 17closed

TetonSports sent me a "Session Backpack" to review! The features of this backpack are: Dimensions: 21" x 15" x 9.5" (Full Capacity), Pack Weight: 1.75 lbs, Shell: 600D PU, Capacity: 1500 cubic inches / 25 Liters, Color: Black / White & Pink. Inside, there is a removeable organizer pocket! On the side, there is a dual water bottle holder, and of course an Ipod/MP3 Media Port! There is a cell phone pocket on the side, an excellent airflow system, file folders system, and a paded laptop compartment, which fits most 17" laptops!

Teton Sports kindly sent us a TETON Sports Tech Session Backpack to review. Let me first start off by saying, that I'm not currently in school. So why do I need a backpack you ask? Well, as most of you know, since most of you are mothers, and fathers... trying to get out of the house with EVERYTHING you need, while carrying an infant carseat (with your oh-so-precious cargo in it) is NOT an easy task. I have a son, so we chose the black Session pack because pink is obviously too girlie, and the black isn't too boyish for me to be wearing either. PLUS it matches just about everything! I was previously using a Graco diaper bag... and Graco is pretty top notch. Since we cloth diaper, I couldn't fit half of what I needed to carry around with me, and I was always worrying about things falling out since half the time I couldn't zip it! I'm SO glad that we got a Teton Sports bag. The space designed for a laptop has a velcro attachment. This means if you put a laptop in it, it's going to stay put! You don't have to worry about accidentally leaving the zipper open, and risk it falling on the ground! Or, in our case... it is the perfect size to hold our changing pad! This bag has some seriously heavy duty zippers. Nothing is more frustrating than when your backpacks zipper comes off while you're trying to get in it. How inconvenient! These zippers are some pretty tuff cookies, and I don't expect the run of the mill zipper problems with these! We haven't experienced one snag, stick, or otherwise! When mama wants in the bag, she gets in! The back of the bag has special breathable fabric, and it's ridged so that air can flow. I cannot even begin to tell you how thankful I am for this option living in this Arizona heat! The second largest pocket has a nice little pocket at the top. This can be used for quick access change, or whatever else you can think of! For us, this is a perfect place to put little I's binks. No fumbling through OUR bag with a fussy babe! Just grab and go. Now, I don't know about you guys, but I'm a bit OCD when it comes to organization. This bag makes it perfect, and easy! The front pocket has organizers for pens, and a little pocket you could place sticky notes in, and it even has a detachable key ring! Perfect! I love how this pack has nice sturdy drink holders. There's nothing that bothers me more on a bag, than a flimsy, mesh, drink holder. Half the time those don't keep your drinks in! I'm pleased to say that with little I's bottles (which are fairly thin), and my water bottles... I'm pleased to say that these drink holders have a very nice, snug fit. You don't have to worry about losing anything! I definitely recommend this pack to mama's looking for a hands-free spacious diaper bag, or students looking to get their money worth, and hands on a high quality bag! And of course, all you happy campers out there!

Little Green Books Review & Giveaway~Ends September 13CLOSED

I was sent 3 books from Little Green Books to review!
1. My first Garden
2. Santa Claus is Green
3. The Adventures of the Plastic Bottle
As soon as we got the books, my daughter opened them immediately, and she loves them!
My Little Garden, is of course about Planting your own garden! A mother and daughterm , dig up soil, plant a flower bed, and water the seeds to make their very first garden. Together they watch the colorful vegetables grow, grow, grow! This book teaches a first concept of colors as well. The book has a handle die-cut through on every page so kids can take the book with them wherever they go!

Santa Claus Is Green is the second book I reviewed! It is my daughter's favorite, because it comes with stickers! Santa Claus is dreaming of a green Christmas! In the spirit of Christmas giving, Santa shows boys and girls that they can give to others while giving back to the Earth -- and have fun while they're doing it! Simple things like riding bicycles to store rather than taking a car, turning the tree lights off during the day and before bed, taking the tree to the community mulching center, using discarded newspapers for gift wrap and making decorations and presents for one another rather than buying new ones are all ways that kids can help Santa celebrate a green Christmas!

I reviewed "The Adventures Of The Plastic Bottle" last! Told from the point of view of a free-spirited plastic bottle, kids can share in the daily experiences and inner thoughts of the bottle through his personal journal. The diary entries will be fun and humorous yet point out the ecological significance behind each product and the resources used to make it. Readers will never look at a plastic bottle the same way again!

Little Green Books has offered to give one of my readers thier very own set of the 3 books I reviewed!

It has been proven that it's easier/funner, and faster for children to learn new things, while having fun with it! So The Alphabeasts are the perfect stuffed toy for learning about letters! All 26 letters of the alphabet are available on thier website, for $20.00 each. On the front of the Alphabeast, there is a capital letter printed on the tummy, and on the back of the alphabeast, is the lowercase letter! Features Include: Exclusive custom dyed color palette, a collector's tag is on each animal, they are all 15' in height, the bodyies are plush, washable, and velveteen, and extremely soft, the letters are soft contrasting fleece letters, they are made with generous polyester fill, they have a felt mouth with solid thread teeth, and they all have a solid thread eye detail! Alphabeasts are always playing, and always teaching! Alphabeasts are the perfect toy for any pre schooler!

Story Book Tea Kit Review & Giveaway~Ends August 27ENDED

The Tea Kit Company sent me an Alice In Wonderland storybook/tea kit for review! Alice's Pawfect Tea Party Kit comes with The storybook Keepsake, Tea Pouch with Tea Bag, White Rabbit's Chocolate Pocket Watch, Mad Hatters biscuits (a.k.a. pence cookies), Alice's Candy Cake, Alice's drinking bottle, Chapter 7 Tea Party Book "A Mad Tea Party", Alice's Pawfect Tea Party C.D., and vintage images on the inside of the box! All the chocolate was very good of course, especially the cake, that was my favorite! It was so well decorated and looks like alot of time was spent on decorating it! The Tea was the essential part of the Tea Party, and the cookies too! They were all very good! I like the little bottle to put tea in! That's cute! I loved having the tea party music playing in the backround as we drank our tea! The storybook was what we did while we were waiting for the tea to be ready, I read it! This Tea Kit can be purchased on thier website for $40.00, plus tax and shipping!

The Sotybook Tea Kit Company has offered to give one lucky reader thier very own storybook kit of Alice's Tea Party!
