Cave Tools has the best Grilling products around
2018 Holiday Gift Guide , Reviews / November 28, 2018

I recently received a Marinade Meat Injector, and I love it.  We have learned to use it nearly every time we cook meat, and not just for Grilling time.  Cave Tools has been one of my favorite brands for over a year.  I love all of their products, and the Meat Injector is my favorite, by far.  Like I said, we use it nearly every time we cook meat. My 21 year old, daughter, even uses it.  She makes her boyfriend these fantastic pork chops, and she injects soy sauce in them.  This is a cool thing, and I love being her taste tester.  We have also used it to inject barbecue sauce into chicken, which turned out terrific. Cave Tools Meat Injector Kit can also be bought on Amazon.  No matter where you get it, you definitely want to purchase it.  The meat tastes so much better when the flavors are injected, instead of just soaked. There’s a measurement window, so you know just how much flavor you are injecting.  Don’t want to overpower the flavor, from the meat taste.  We’ve gotten it just right several times. And, you can save 15% off your purchase price, when you order…

Duck and Hippo Give Thanks Book Tour Stop
2018 Holiday Gift Guide / November 21, 2018

Duck and Hippo Give Thanks is a great book, and my 7 year old loves it.  With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I thought this would be the perfect book for bedtime, last night.  Jacob listened to the tale, and really got it.  I was so excited when he started asking me questions, about what I had just read.  Jonathan London is an excellent writer, and he got this book perfectly right! Duck and Hippo Give Thanks has a lot of illustrations by Andrew Joyner, and they are so colorful, and made Jacob really look twice, we discussed the pictures, as well.  He really enjoyed the book, and asked if we could read it again tonight.  I told him, “Of course, but this time you will read it to Mommy”, and he agreed.  I’m trying to help him read, so what better way, than to have him read this wonderful book to me?  I can’t wait, to be honest! Duck and Hippo are thankful for good friends! It’s the day before Thanksgiving, and Hippo has his heart set on having a good old-fashioned feast with Duck and their friends. Together, Duck and Hippo go shopping for food and invite Turtle,…

Ellie Claire art journal make a great Holiday Gift!
2018 Holiday Gift Guide / November 16, 2018

I love the Ellie Claire Art Journals I received.  They are so beautiful, the pictures in them are fascinating.  I can’t get over all the pretty colors, and fantastic art work.  And, the quotes are so inspirational.  My sister loves them, too.  I gifted one to her, and she uses it daily. I used different pens/markers in the book I kept, and let me tell you, there is no bleeding through the paper.  The paper is so thick, it’s great.  I also gave a book to my 21 year old, daughter, and she loves the thickness of the paper as well.  She uses her inspirational journal for college, and says the professor even loves it, and asked where to get her hands on one. One of the sayings “Nature decrees that we do not exceed the speed of light.  All other impossibilities are optional.” is my favorite.  I love this saying, and it’s written by Robert Brault.  Another saying, “Dear Lord, grant me the grace of wonder.  Surprise me, amaze me, awe me in every crevice of Your universe…I do not ask to see the reason for it all; I ask only to share the wonder of it all.” by…

Just Born Blanket Sleepers are Super Cute
2018 Holiday Gift Guide / November 10, 2018

Just Born is an excellent company, and I recently received a “My 1st Christmas” blanket sleeper, with an angel on it.  It’s so cute, that I can’t wait to give it to my friend, for her little one.  I love the fabric, it’ll keep her baby nice and warm.  And, I love the stitched on Angel.  I wish I would’ve had something this cozy for my little man, when he was a baby, but he’s 7 now. Just Born makes a lot of lovely clothes for little ones.  Their layout is extensive, and very heartwarming.  I love their stuff, and as a matter of fact, when my 7 year old was a baby, I used to buy Just Born, at Target!  I just really love this beautiful layette, and can’t wait to give it to my friend. Just Born fits true to size, and is super soft, so you can know that your little one is cozy in it.  They have blanket sleepers, as seen above, as well as, layettes and more. Just Born products are made with high quality products, and they are so wonderful for any child, family or friend.  I’m so thrilled to be able to give…

NoSweat Hat Liners are used by my Family
2018 Holiday Gift Guide / November 10, 2018

NoSweat NoSweat hat liners have been a life saver.  When my husband, and Father-In-Law go out to cut grass, or work on either home, they can wear a hat liner, and know that their hat will be protected from sweat marks, and that their skin will be protected from acne.  They love these hat liners, and want me to order more. NoSweat is a great brand, and lasts up to 2 weeks.  For my hubby and his father, they last longer!  It’s not that they aren’t working hard, and they sweat a lot, but it’s the great material they are made out of. It is common for people to wear a hat while working out, traveling, doing outdoor recreations or simply rocking it because it goes with their outfit, but things can get pretty ugly under there fast.  NoSweat thin, disposable liners stick to the inside of headwear to instantly absorb sweat and prevent odors, stains and even acne. The liners are soft and lightweight and each one can last up to two weeks.

Roto-Rooter ~ Routine Maintenance
2018 Holiday Gift Guide , Reviews , Roto-Rooter / November 10, 2018

I love using Roto-Rooter for routine maintenance.  It cleans out the pipes, and the septic system with ease.  Roto-Rooter has become one of my favorite products of all time.  My husband uses it, I just watch, but if I tried, there’s no doubt that I would be able to do the things he does with Roto-Rooter. We use Roto-Rooter once a month, and it keeps all the pipes clear.  We don’t just use it when there’s a clog!  It’s best to run it through once a month, to keep clogs from happening.  And, me, with long hair, there’s always clogs in our shower.  Roto-Rooter really helps break down the hair, and get it flushed out of our system. For the Holidays, when you have family/friends over, make sure you use Roto-Rooter, before the fact.  Then, you won’t have to worry about clogs later.  Roto-Rooter is a great product and I love using it in my home. Why Roto-Rooter: Roto-Rooter® is introducing a complete line of powerful and fast acting drain and septic care products: The Strongest National Brand.  Each has been specially formulated to meet the demanding requirements of professionals and homeowners who expect professional results. Roto-Rooter products have more…

Amish Wisdom Journals are So Amazing
2018 Holiday Gift Guide / November 9, 2018

I received two Amish Wisdom Journals, and they are amazing.  With every page, theres a new fact, and room to write in it, because after all it is a journal.  My daughter, age 21, took one journal, and my mom took the other.  They love their journals, and carry them everywhere. We love these journals, and my daughter keeps all of her homework, for college, written in hers.   And, my mom’s has her thoughts.  She’s getting older, and it’s good for her to write her thoughts down, especially while she’s getting so forgetful. Amish Wisdom is so amazing.  It enriches the journaling experience with sage advice for practical living.  This high-quality journ features expressive images, lined blank pages, and decorative end pages. Amish Wisdom from the Scriptures enriches the journaling experience with spiritual truths that convey the simple beloved proverbs that play a daily role in Amish speech, this beautiful lined journal offers insight into authentic “Pennsylvania Dutch” culture. Quiet Fox Designs is an imprint of Fox Chapel Publishing. Beautiful Quiet Fox journals include faith-based journals, Zentangle notebooks, inspirational journals, and Woodstock-inspired journals. Quiet Fox journals make lovely gifts and are designed to suit every occasion, from jotting down daily…

BluNotes are Super!
2018 Holiday Gift Guide / November 9, 2018

Blu Notebook My daughter, 21, and husband, are arguing over who gets the amazing BluNotes notebook.  It’s this amazing graph paper, colored blue.  I love it too, but I usually let my family fight about who gets what products.  BluNotebooks are super cool, and Sarah wants to use it to draw her outfits for Cosplay.  Joe wants to use it for work.  So, between the two, I don’t know if I will give it to either.  I may just keep it, and use it myself. Sarah does draw very well, and I’d love to see her Cosplay outfits drawn on.  But, Joe would use it for work, where he’s a supervisor, but not in charge of the prints.  I think it will become Sarah’s Blu Notebook, so she can bring Cosplay to life. The BLU Notebook is the first ever sketching journal made from pages that have the look and feel of traditional blueprint paper (Without the smell of Ammonia!). BLU offers an aesthetically pleasing and soothing effect when using vibrantly pigmented white and coloured gel ink against the rich blue pages of BLU. The Pages of BLU Blue pages with a light blue grid 10:1” grid within a finer 2:1…

Once Upon a Book Club is Fantastic!
2018 Holiday Gift Guide / November 9, 2018

I’ve never been so excited about a product.  I’ve been wanting to try Once Upon a Book Club for a while, so when it came across my desk, I couldn’t refuse.  It’s so cool how you get an amazing book, and products for certain pages of the book.  This month’s box was fantastic.  I don’t read much, but I really got into it, and now my daughter, age 21, wants to borrow it.  I am super excited about this amazing product.  You can get 1 month for $35, or 3 months for $100, so save yourself some money and go for the 3 month subscription.  You won’t regret it. If you are an avid reader, you will love Once Upon a Book Club.  My daughter is borrowing this weekend, and she reads constantly.  She’s going to school to be a teacher, so she has to read a lot.  But, I’m sure she will love this as much as I do, and I’m not big into reading.  This was one of the most fantastic reviews that I’ve ever gotten to do though.  I was able to keep up, and understood what I was reading.  The book was so special to me. …
