Product Reviews

The other night, my husband and I decided to grill out and have steaks and shrimp. We have been going out to eat almost every night before that for almost two weeks, so we were both dying for a delicious home cooked meal.

Now — I don’t know about you, but grilled food just does something to my digestive system. My stomach gets all gurgly, and the bloating begins. Before too long — you know what can happen.

I received a complimentary product in exchange for my review. I have been compensated to share this post with you. All opinions remain my own.

When my son entered preschool, I had no idea the issues and struggles we would have with this ability to sit still through those long hours of study time. Many times, the teacher would call me and my husband in for a consultation about his behavior — most of which was fidgeting or wiggling — or something of that nature. I sure wish I would have had Bouncy Bands back then — because I am sure this would have definitely helped out with all the fidgeting issues we had.

One of my new favorite foods is lettuce wraps. It started when my daughter and I went to a Thai restaurant and I had them. From the first bite I fell head over heels in love with them. Since then — I have recreated many different flavors of lettuce wraps. We have had Asian, BBQ Pork, Tacos, and now, I can add Mexican Grilled Chicken Lettuce Wraps to that list as well.

This, you see, is grilling season — and what better way to celebrate it than with my favorite Mexican dish. I topped these with delicious Red Gold Tomatoes, which added a serious punch of flavor.

I am a huge hot dog lover. I eat them every single time we grill. However, last night, I decided to change it up a bit and throw some Jennie-O Turkey Franks on the grill.

One thing that my kids have always hated about homeschooling is writing. For me, I love to write so I was hoping that they would garner the same interest in writing that I have. Unfortunately that has never been so. Until now.

Kayla was introduced to Writing with Sharon – Writing Fiction in High School, and has discovered that she loves to write short stories that allow her to escape into another world for just a little while.

The weather is super hot here right now. It’s not just hot –it’s humid hot. When it gets like this, I am not a big fan of hot coffee, but I have never been a fan of cold iced coffee either — until I tried Seattle’s Best Frozen Coffee Blends.

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I love making homemade ice cream(just click that link and you can see all of my delicious ice cream recipes). However, homemade ice cream is seriously heavy because it is made with heavy whipping cream, half and half, and lots and lots of sugar. Now though — you can make delicious frozen desserts that cut the calorie content way down! Let me introduce you to the Swirlio.

My husband and son work together doing construction. Sometimes they are doing inside work and they come home smelling like sawdust and wood. But then — there are those times that they come home after being out in the hot sun ALL day and they smell like it too. Needless to say when those times come, I hate doing their laundry — but– I must or they won’t have anything to wear.

For the last few days all I have heard from anyone who gives me a hug is how good I smell. They keep asking me if it’s a new perfume I am wearing, a body spray, or my shampoo. When I tell them that is is my body wash — they all want to know what brand. It’s then that I tell them about the new scent from Softsoap — Coconut Island Quench.
