Blessings at Kerusso + Giveaway

Kerusso is the place to go for Christian Tshirts and other gifts. Kerusso has been providing the public with Christian themed apparel for over 20 yrs. I know the mall by my house has a cart with so many neat shirts! These T-shirts are a great conversation starter and witnessing tool. I've owned a few different ones since I became a Christian 15 years ago. You have to read the testimony of the man who started this company! It's great to see the lengths that God will go to to show Himself real to us. Vic didn't like to read, but he had to read a book before he was delivered from his atheist beliefs. I LOVE my newest T-shirt from Kerusso. I must say my husband loves it too. I call it my "Bling T." They have so many other awesome T-shirts as well. Go to their website and check it out!
 Kerusso has something for everybody! They have great prices and good quality items. From now thru Dec. 23 you can get FREE SHIPPING on your purchase of $27 or more. This is the best place to go shopping for that special gift. Christmas is almost here! 
 My kids got to review these adorable puppies called "Faithful Friends." Their names are Joy, Charity, and Courage.

Joy is like happiness that starts in your spirit and never goes away! 1 Thes. 5:16

Charity is a special kind of love that cares more about others than about yourself. 1 Cor. 13:13

Real Courage is knowing that you never need to be afraid because God is watching over you! 1 Cor. 16:13

All 3 of my kids picked the dog they wanted and now they cherish it. They each have a special scripture that goes with their new friend.

Healthy & Tasty Crackers + Giveaway

Crunchmaster Multi-Grain Crackers from TH Foods are a delicious, natural alternative to traditional processed wheat crackers. With a blend of pure, California brown rice, stone-ground corn, oat fiber, and a four seed blend, Crunchmaster Multi-Grain Crackers are oven-baked and have 65% less fat than regular multi-grain chips.

What Crunchmaster Multi-Grain Crackers offers you:

*21g or more whole grains per serving
*A good source of fiber
*All natural
*Free of saturated fat 
*Delicious, with a great
  multi-grain taste

Thanks to the wonderful folks at Moms Meet my family and friends were able to sample a few different flavors of the awesome Crunchmaster Multi-Grain Crackers. In the past I had tried their original flavor. We had the opportunity to try White Cheddar, Roasted Vegetable, and Sea Salt. These crackers are very tasty and everyone who tried them had their own favorites. My favorite happens to be the white cheddar. The roasted vegetable has lots of seasoning on it, so if you like your vegetables then you will love this cracker. The white cheddar has that light hint of flavor, and the sea salt speaks for itself.
I've had many different brands and types of wheat crackers in my lifetime. I can honestly say that these are the most flavorful that have entered my mouth. My kids even enjoy eating them. Everyone knows how hard it can be to get some kids to eat healthy products. My kids can eat a whole bag of the white cheddar on their own!

Truly Awesome Cookies

There's nothing like homemade chocolate chip cookies and a glass of milk to finish off my day. Kroger's Chocolate chip Cookies from their Truly Awesome line are really, truly awesome. Not only are these cookies full of chocolate chips, but they are not too crunchy or too soft. They are just right! Just put them in the microwave for a few seconds and you have that "fresh out of the oven" treat. You can feel good about eating these because they are free of added preservatives and artificial colors. You don't have to pay a lot either. You can probably find a box at your local Fry's/Kroger store for less than $3.
The Truly Awesome line has more than just cookies. You can find yogurt, frozen broccoli & cheese, macaroni & cheese, and who knows what's coming up next from these guys! I can't wait to try the other products, but I am confident you all will love these cookies! Especially if you love chocolate.

Thank you Bzz Agent for the opportunity to try these for free!

Perplexing, But Oh So Fun + Giveaway

Are you into puzzles? Not the jigsaw kind. What about mazes, good at those? Well folks, there is something fun for you! PERPLEXUS! PERPLEXUS is a maze game where players maneuver a small marble around challenging barriers inside a transparent sphere. Unlike traditional flat-surface mazes that are composed of one path, PERPLEXUS houses various challenging tracks with 100 barriers providing a frustrating three-dimensional experience. Players select the track they would like to attempt and must work with gravity to carefully shift, flip, and twist the sphere to guide the marble. Players can race each other or the clock. It challenges eye-hand coordination and concentration while being loads of fun. It also assists in child development, allowing children to exercise their motor and dexterity skills. This awesome game is recommended for children ages 6 & up and....wait for it....DOESN'T need batteries! I love that!
 You can check out the history of how Perplexus came to be. It's quite an interesting story

My 8 year old son figured out puzzle 2 and 3 after the first half hour of playing. He really enjoys trying to complete the mazes at a faster time than his previous. I still haven't completed any of the 3. My brain isn't coordinated enough, but I get further every time I play. There is hope for me yet! With over 23' of track length, you can be sure this will keep you and your children busy.

Glee for Gummies + Giveaway


What a fun time we had making sour gummies! I used this kit as a teaching lesson for our home-school. A little math and science all rolled into one session. We enjoyed learning all the cool facts about seaweed. Seaweed isn't just for crunchy snacks and sushi you know! You can find it in many of your household products. With the "Make Your Own Gummies" Kit, the folks at Glee Gum give you everything you need to make a chewy treat. You have the option of adding the sour flavor or leaving it out. I loved that there were enough steps in the candy making process that all of my kids got to participate in the creation of their gummies. They had so much fun with this!
They not only have a gummy kit, but also "Make Your Own Chocolate" and "Make Your Own Chewing Gum" kits. Your kids will love the hands on fun and will learn something they may not know.

Now, Glee Gum is also known for their GUM. Glee Gum is all natural chewing gum made with sustainably harvested rainforest chicle. It comes in 8 great flavors: cinnamon, peppermint, tangerine, bubblegum, spearmint, triple berry, sugar-free lemon-lime and sugar-free refresh-mint. Glee Gum is the #1 healthy alternative to synthetic chewing gum and bubble gum! No artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, or sweeteners (no aspartame). Chew with Glee, naturally!
My favorite was the spearmint!

Burt's Bees Natural & Sensitive

I love natural products, and when I discovered I had the chance to try a natural product from Burt's Bees....doubly excited! If you have super sensitive skin such as myself, now you can nourish, cleanse and moisturize your sensitive skin without redness or irritation.
If you are not sure if you have sensitive skin then check out this guide Burt's Bees has available:

A formal definition for the condition has yet to be created, but most dermatologists characterize sensitive skin as skin that experiences:

  • Redness
  • Irritation
  • Stinging
  • Dryness
  • Itching
  • Blotchiness
  • Breakouts easily
  • Rashes


If you want to try it then check out Burt's Bees online where you can find a $2 off coupon to use towards your purchase from the Sensitive Skincare line.

I really love this product! Not only because my skin feels great afterwards, but it is so affordable compared to what I use now. The cleanser is not harsh so my face is not all red after washing. The moisturizer is perfect! It completes the routine leaving your face moisturized, soft, and clean! No redness or dryness for me, which is always a big problem for my skin.

So thankful to be a Bzz Agent so I could try this product! I think everyone should try this product!

Mega Bloks & Fun

What a great surprise when we opened the door and found a huge box. We didn't know what we got in the mail! When we opened it up the kids started jumping for joy! They knew we got the mommy party, and were so happy to be able to have some friends over and to enjoy building and socializing. Biggest "Blok" party in the neighborhood. The kids loved that they got their own special backpack full of Mega Bloks and not to mention their very own stickers to decorate them with. Mom and Dad are happy about the bag because it's a place to store them at clean up time. It also makes them portable. They can take them in the car or wherever they go.
Proud of her tower!
I know the age range is 1 and up, and that's a good thing because I don't think you're ever to old to play with these. Not only does my 8 yr old son love them, but so do his dad and I. We might have had a little too much fun.  We played for a couple hours with our kids. All the children had fun with their new Mega Bloks. All the moms received a coupon for $3 off their own purchase. This works out since it's so close to Christmas. They can save some money while building their child's Mega Blok collection ;).

A BIG thank you to MomSelect and Mega Bloks for this great opportunity to bless some friends and their children!

Walk and Roll!!!

You can literally walk and roll with these shoes. Heely's have the ability to transform. When you're in the mood for a normal walk, you can pop the wheels out and you have regular shoes. If you want to get somewhere a little faster and roll in, then you pop your wheels in. My son Alex loves his Heely's! He couldn't even skate, but he wanted to roll everywhere. He is getting better everyday with practice. Heely's are not just cool shoes. They are great for teaching balance! Balance is very important in many sports, especially in my son's Kung Fu class. I want a pair for myself. Grocery shopping would be a lot faster! There's a "How To" video to learn the new sport of Heeling. I love that they have a playbook and safety guide as well.

Heely's offers different styles and colors. They have 2 wheel styles or the 1 wheel style like my son received. They also have this awesome first ever inline foot-board made exclusively for Heelys.You can now skate farther, faster and longer.

Heely's is offering 2 awesome deals so check this out! 1st they are having a Black Friday special: From Nov 25-Nov 28, you can buy any pair of Heelys and get the second pair for $25! 2nd you can buy a Nano, and get a pair of shoes for $25 and get FREE ground shipping on all orders!
