Magnetic Screen Door from iGotTech Review

I have always wanted a mesh screen. I came close to purchasing one last year, but a friend of mine owns a few and always complained about how flimsy they were and that it didn't have an opening in the middle, so having to push it to the side to get through worked against keeping all bugs out. I was happy when a chance to try the Magnetic Screen Door came. Getting one that's supposedly the "#1 Best Screen" FREE? That's a…

Everglades Holiday Park Experience (Home of the Gator Boys!)

I was as excited as my husband and kids, anticipating this trip. When we got to the park, everything went smoothly. We picked up our tickets and went to the covered area waiting for our ticket number to be called for the airboat tour. There were a lot of people there, but the wait for the airboat tour was only about 10 minutes.



I know from seeing…

NEW Arm & Hammer Truly Radiant Toothpaste and Spinbrush

I have been using whitening toothpastes since I was a teen. I know the types of food eaten can result in yellow, cream color teeth and I like coffee but I don't drink it often enough for it to have an affect (at least I don't think it should). I've tried whitening strips, gels, mouth wash, some…

Starting an Avocado Tree

A few weeks ago I posted photos on my instagram page showing how beautifully my mother in law's fruits plants have grown. She has a papaya tree, avocado tree, banana tree, mango tree and more grown. There are a few others in their beginning stages. It only took about 5 years for some of her plants to start bearing fruit and I was thinking I should've started growing plants as soon as we bought our house. By now I would have…

Seeds of Change Organic Recipes

The rice comes in two forms. You can choose the packet or the box. The packet takes only 90 seconds to cook, but the boxed rice takes about 45 minutes to make. From a list of options, I decided to try the 'Seven Grain Shrimp Bowl' recipe, except with the Indian Rice Blend and omitting the ingredients my family would not want, red peppers for example. This way, dinner would be ready quickly!…

Mommy, what's this?

Today my son came into my room with this really strange disk thingy in one hand and a rectangular thingamajig in the other. At first I was so ready to yell at him, wondering why he's walking around the house with a smoke detector but as he got closer I realized it wasn't a smoke detector. The condition of it made it look like it could've been some type of artifact used by our grandparents, but it wasn't. At first, I myself…

Bored already? Summer break just began!

School's over for my kids and with today being the first Monday of the break, it's evident that they're bored already! Around 11am, my youngest child asked me if he can go to school. LOL…

What's the deal with New Math?

The image on the right (or at least something similar) has been circulating the web for a while now. Initially I thought it was just another silly share going around, but today as it was posted I decided to click the link included with the post. It mentioned something called Common Core Math Standards and apparently it's already "standard" in some schools. This makes me nervous!…

WOAH!!! @ Disney World Ticket Prices!

I was watching a re-run of Roseanne where David was hired to play "Hans the Hare" for a theme park. She was talking about the expensive cost to get into the theme park just to see some rabbits and it reminded me a lot of the expensive cost to see a mouse.

During the episode, the price was about $30-something, so that surprised me. I'm thinking,…

Adovia Purifying Mud Mask Review

I finally got around to trying the Adovia Purifying Mud Mask, with Pure Dead Sea Mud, Aloe Vera and Vitamin C. I haven't used a face mask product since I was a pre teen copying my mom one day. I was excited, especially because it has Pure Dead Sea Mud, which is known to provide great results.



This product is for all skin types, so I wasn't really…

Trying the Cement Block Raised Garden Bed (As Seen on Pinterest)

I finally made my way over to Lowes today so I could buy the things necessary to try the Cement Block Raised Garden Bed idea I saw on Pinterest.



I wanted two beds, so I intended to buy 20 cement blocks, but I underestimated how heavy they were and how much space it would take up in the car. After grocery shopping, and making a quick trip to ToysRUs to pick up a birthday gift, space was limited. So, I bought:



6 bags of Top Soil

3 bags of Potting…

Remodeling my garden after letting it go - giveaway!

I have something to confess. My months of gardening went to waste a long while ago, because I saw a snake and lizards that made me feel as if my backyard was their own, not mine, lol. Usually I'm not afraid of garden snakes, but when I'm in the backyard alone a garden snake starts to look like an anaconda. Eek! With all the different types of garden / garter snakes there are, I can't tell when a poisonous snake is nearby. So to…

Perfective Ceuticals Divine Age Guardian Cream Review

The Perfective Ceuticals Divine Age Guardian Cream is an anti-aging cream, so I wasn't planning on using it. I don't have any wrinkles, so I never thought someone in their early 30's would have use for such a product. My intentions were to have my grand mother try it, but we're in different states and it would be too much of a hassle, so I did a little research. I checked the Internet to find out at what age people should start…

Pirate Theme Birthday Party Ideas

Have I mentioned previously how much I love Pinterest? I went on there to create a board for Pirate theme goodies just so I can have an easy place to keep track of things I found. After searching their site for additional ideas, I came across much better ideas than I originally had. Things I can do myself, which means I can save money (yay)!

Red Leaf Tea - Naturally flavored Eggnog Matcha Review & Giveaway

I made the Eggnog Matcha the same way I made the Caramel Matchaccino. As soon as I opened the packet, the smell of eggnog was noticeable. It smelled great.

Red Leaf Tea - Caramel Matchaccino Review

I was given the opportunity to try two products from RedLeafTea.com. The Caramel Matchaccino and the Naturally flavored Eggnog Matcha. I've never heard of either products, but I was excited to try them. Here's my thoughts in the Caramel Matchaccino.



First things first, I had no idea what…

What are your Holiday Traditions? Plus Giveaway!

Do you have family traditions during the Holidays? I remember when I was a child, every Christmas we'd get new pajamas. The night before Christmas we would wear our new PJs and I couldn't wait to be able to open the presents in the morning. I loved waking up to Christmas music and Christmas breakfast! I even looked forward to those traditions as a teen.…
