Welch’s is great for the daily snack
2019 Summer Gift Guide / July 31, 2019

We love Welch’s snacks in our home.  My 8 year old can’t get enough, and my 22 year old devours them.  My husband, and I, really like them too.  They are healthy, and delicious.  We’ve been snacking on them for years.  And, they curve your craving for sweet stuff, as well. The Welch’s Fruit Snacks are so healthy.  They have real fruit juice in them, and a great source for energy.  The Berries N Cherries is my favorite.  They are super, and there’s a whole bunch of flavors.  You need to try each and every one.  We have.  They are great for a mid-day snack, or even just an evening snack, before bed.  Whenever you choose to eat Welch’s, you will love them too. The Welch’s Fruit Rolls are so yummy.  We buy these over other brands, because put simply, they taste better.  Made with real fruit and super healthy.  I will be sending these to school, with Jacob, once school starts.  I can’t get enough of them, though.  So, I’ll send them if there’s any left. There’s also Welch’s Fruit N Yogurt Snacks.  They are fabulous.  I’ve been eating these for a while, too.  I love the Yogurt taste! …

2019 Summer Gift Guide / July 30, 2019

We recently received a package from ZURUtoys, and it’s the best thing I’ve gotten all Summer.  My 8 year old went crazy of the X-Shot Fast Fill water guns.  He has had a blast, since he’s received the guns.  His sister, age 22, is playing too.  They go outside, and the guns are fast fill, in the pool. We’ve loved Bunch o Balloons self sealing, rapid filling, water balloons, since last Summer, so getting these, was an added bonus.  We took the hose and filled them up, and the kids had so much fun busting them on each other.  There’s 100 balloons in each packet.  That’s enough for some fun.  We blew up 3 packages, and the kids even started throwing them at me, so I threw them back.  It’s been the highlight of my Summer, playing with my kids outside. KEY FEATURES: • QUICK-FILL: Fill & Tie 100 Water Balloons in 60 Seconds • NO MORE TYING: Self-Sealing Water Balloons • SAFE TO ENVIRONMENT:Bunch O Balloons and O Ring are biodegradable and recyclable • TOY OF THE YEAR: Award-Winning Outdoor Toy of the Year in both 2017 and 2018.   Bunch O Balloons Self Sealing Balloons was a new thing to…

The Missing Money #MoneyLessons

The Missing Money is truly a great book.  It’ll teach your kids about banking, and will help them to understand the concept.  My 8 year old, Jacob, loves this book.  And, my 22 year old, Sarah, who is going to school to be a teacher, can’t wait to implement this book in her classroom. Jacob said he learned a lot, and Sarah said she is super excited about this book.  She’ll be teaching this year, as part of student teaching, and can read this story in class.  She’s really looking forward to telling the kids about the Money Monsters. Your child will love this story, as much as mine do.  It’s a real good source for explaining the bank, ATM, and armored truck, to you family.  I love how it’s all explained, and will read it again, before Jacob gets his own account. Kai, the little boy on the cover, will get ATM, bank, and armored truck all explained to him.  Making it easier for you to explain to your young ones, so they understand.  This book is great. The Missing Money is inexpensive, and a great resource to have.  Get yours now!  Order on the link below. Also, I’ll…

There’s A Monkey In My Backpack!
2019 Summer Gift Guide / July 18, 2019

My 22 year old, daughter, who is a student, becoming a teacher, just finished reading There’s A Monkey In My Backpack! by Don M. Winn, and loved it.  She says she can’t wait to implement it, in the classroom, this Spring.  She’ll be student teaching her final semester, and she says it’ll be good for the kids she is teaching. I love the book, and read it to my son, who is going into the Third Grade, just like in the book.  He really enjoyed reading it, as well. I really can’t wait for Sarah to take it into the classroom, so the kids can hear this amazing story.  See, Anna has a friend, that’s a Monkey; or does she?  You will have to read the book to find out, I don’t want to give too much away.  It’s a very interesting story, and I understood it, as well as my kids did.  I get it, and I remember school, and having the same issues as Anna. Anna has a problem! There’s a monkey who goes everywhere with her–even to school! He never leaves Anna alone. He makes so much trouble for her that she wonders if she will ever…

Desert Essence is Wonderful For Your Skin
Reviews , women / July 10, 2019

I’ve been using Desert Essence for about 2 weeks now, and my skin has never been softer, or more smooth.  I love the feel it leaves on my skin.  The Body Oil is great for in the shower.  While the Body Scrub rocks when out of the shower.  My 22 year old, daughter, tried it as well, and loves the formula.  Needless to say, we will be sticking with this company for years to come.  The prices are right, and the product is so great! The Body Oil comes in 3 wonderful scents, including:  Jojoba & Sweet Almond, Jojoba & Sunflower, and Jojoba & Coconut with Chamomile.  These are all lovely, but I use the Jojoba & Sweet Almond.  It smells wonderful, and leaves me feeling nice, and silky.  Each formula has it’s own sweet result.  Check out the details here. The Body Scrub is sweet!  It keeps my skin feeling fresh, and smelling delightful.  I love the feel it leaves on my skin.  There are also 3 formulas for the Body Scrub.  There is one for sensitive skin, that is the one I’m using.  And, two other formulas.  You can check them out here, as well.
