Look Who’s Growing quality growth charts review and #giveaway 4/2–CLOSED

 RANDOM.ORG DREW NUMBER 10 KATHLEEN . WINNER HAS BEEN EMAILED AND HAS 48 HOURS TO REPLY TO WINNING EMAIL NOTIFICATION. 

Growth Charts are so much more than just away to track how fast your child is growing.  Growth charts can be a sentimental piece of your son or daughters childhood.  If you find a nice one, it can be a nice addition to your child or grandchild’s room decor.

Look Who’s Growing offers durable growth charts that can be personalized in a number of ways . They are made of high-quality vinyl.  They have  wooden dowel in the bottom and metal grommets at the top to make hanging the growth chart you choose, easy. 

There are so many colors, patterns, and themes to choose from.  Your sure to find one that will be just perfect for your child’s room.  You can even have it personalized with their name, date of birth, and a photo if you’d like. 

Visit Look Who’s Growing’s website: http://lookwhosgrowing.ca/products/  to see all the fun choices. 
You can also find Look Who’s Growing on twitter: @LookWhosGrowing and Look Who’s Growing on Facebook

After spending much time trying to decide which one to get my youngest son, I finally decided on the football sports theme:

I tried desperately to get my little one into the pic with it but he’s been cranky with a virus the last few days. He just wasn’t having it.

The quality of these growth charts is amazing.  The vinyl is a thicker vinyl.  The wooden dowel on the bottom really helps to ensure the growth chart sits flat up against the wall.  I used the Command plastic hooks to hang my son’s growth chart in his room.  Simple, just measure 2 ft from the floor and hang.

Fathers, Sons, and Monster Trucks

As much as I love to spend time with my boys I know that it’s important for my boys to have father/son time. Boys need that time to just be boys.  I saw that the E3 Spark Plugs Monster Truck Nationals was coming to our area.  That had father and son time written all over it.   Think about it: boys and boys-at-heart, mud, big trucks, loud engines, and destruction.  Am I right? 

My oldest 2 boys are from my first marriage.  I know that they enjoy their time with me but they don’t get to spend as much time with the dad as they’d like to.  I asked their dad if he’d like to take them to the Monster Truck Nationals show on Apr. 2.  He said he could.  Now my 7 yr old is excited about it.  My 8 yr old wasn’t so sure until I old him there was also a Pit Party before the show actually starts.  He says “Count me in!”

I think the Monster Truck National will be an event that they’ll remember for a long time.  It’ll be one of those “Hey dad, remember that one time we saw that Monster Truck show and…” 

I’ll find out for sure though. They’ll be heading to the show April 2nd in State College, PA.  Look for my review after the event. 

And now a light-hearted: My Top 5 reasons for a father/son Monster Truck Nationals night out:

1.  Because it’ll get your kids and hubby away from the cartoons on TV.

2.  Because they can feel free to make whatever bodily noises they need to, no one will hear them anyway.

3.  Because they’ll feel free to enjoy themselves a little more.  Mom’s not there to say:
“oh my someone’s gonna get hurt”
“son stop screaming, use your inside voice”
“Dear! Don’t encourage that!”
“No that soda and nachos isn’t healthy, Why don’t you get some water and carrots sticks?”
“Do those trucks really need to be that loud?” 
 I could really keep going here.

4.  Because boys/guys love machines, loud noise, and destruction, at least if they’re here they’re not destroying your freshly cleaned house for a while.

5.  Maybe the most important reason: father and son will both enjoy it and it’ll be ok if they act their age.

Sand Gone Sand Remover Must for beach goers review and #giveaway 3/31–CLOSED

 RANDOM.ORG DREW NUMBER 22 STACY.  WINNER HAS BEEN EMAILED AND HAS 48 HRS TO REPLY TO WINNING EMAIL NOTIFICATION.

It’s funny how things work sometimes. You start thinking about something or start doing something and the right tool just happens to show itself to you.

Hubby and I are planning our first ever real family vacation. We’re planning on going to the beach. I had the opportunity to review Sand Gone.

Sand Gone is a must for beachgoers. It’s a dry powder sand remover that when applied to sandy parts of your body, removes sand and leaves your skin feeling soft.

It has a light coconut scents. Sand Gone is an all natural, non-talc powder. My boys have a sand pit to play in in the back yard. IT was actually an area that was leveled out when we had the pool but we keep the sand in it now for the boys to play in. While the boys were out slopping in the sand I decided it would be the perfect opportunity to give Sand Gone a try.

I they had a toy spider that they built a sand fort for, ( I don’t know why) and then needed a moat for the spider’s castle.  Well of course the spider needs a moat, why not?  Anyway, they had sand sticking to their hands like crazy.

 

I sprinkled the Sand Gone on lightly at first.  It wasn’t enough.  I had to use a little more generous dusting.

 

 My oldest son’s hands seemed to be too mucky for the Sand Gone.  My 7 yr olds however it seemed to get almost all the sand off without water.  (Don’t worry, I did still have them wash their hands for hygiene purposes after the test).

Sand Gone comes with a large body powder puff that fits in the jar.  The powder puff is the perfects size for dusting on larger body parts such as legs, arms, or your belly for instance.

The Sand Gone powder is a light powder that feels silky on the skin.  Kind of reminds me of baby powder.  The powder goes on translucent.  The light coconut smell is pleasing.

This will definitely be going with us on our beach trip this summer.

Get the Make up you crave from Apothica #Giveaway–CLOSED

 RANDOM.ORG CHOSE NUMBER 194 KIMBERLY.  WINNER HAS BEEN SENT A WINNING EMAIL NOTIFICATION AND HAS 48 HRS TO REPLY TO EMAIL. 

 Apothica.com carries some of your favorite make-up brands like: Bobbi Brown, Clinique, Smashbox, Too Faced, and lots more.

I have long been a fan of Clinique. It’s one of those classic cosmetic brands that I feel will always be around. I was first made aware of Clinique in high school. One of my good friends used it all the time. I decided to try it one time by getting a makeover done and taking advantage of one of their deals. You know, spend so much and get all this stuff free, type of thing?

I loved the colors, the quality of the makeup, and the value for the price. Clinique is only slightly more expensive than drugstore make up brands but a lot more affordable than other department store make up brands. The quality and the fact that all their products work is what keeps me coming back to Clinique.

Clinique doesn’t just offer make-up but also skin care products and perfumes. One of my favorite perfumes of all time is Clinique Happy Heart. It’s such a light feminine scent. Perfect any time.

Another Clinique product I highly recommend is the Touch Base for Eyes in Petal Shimmer.  Use it alone as a shadow or put it under your favorite shadow to make you eye shadow stay put.

Clinique’s skin care products work well too.  There are even sets available to try some of their cleansers, moisturizers, and toners.   There are a variety of cleansers and moisturizers to fit your skin type.  And guys, don’t discount yourself from this line.  There are men’s products available too.
