32G #CustomUSBDepot Turbo Charger Review

 

CustomUSBDepot Turbo Charger Review I don’t know about you, but waiting for my phone to charge when I want to do something is the absolute worst for me!  I have very little patience, and while I recognize fully that patience is a very good trait I don’t seem to have gotten it down yet.  I’m a work in progress, my patience has improved but is not yet perfected.  That being said, any product that lessens my need for patience is a friend to me.  Speed chargers are the bomb, I love them.  I love that in half (or sometimes less) of the time I can have my phone or device back up and running.  Doesn’t matter if I don’t need it, it matters if I can’t have it.  LOL.  I know, another problem I have is being a spoiled brat.  Keep your judgements to yourself please.  haha.

I recently got to try out the Custom USB Depot Turbo Charger.  It has a switch on the side so that it will work with either Android or Apple devices so that is fabulous.  At the Zoo, we prefer multi-tasking tools!  I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 and due probably to both the age and the amount of things I had downloaded, it goes dead a lot and takes what I feel like is an eternity to charge.  The Turbo Charger plugs into my existing wall charger as a USB portal and sped up the charging process by about half the time.  This is awesome!  Since I’ve had the charger, I gave in and updated my phone.  I purchased a Samsung Note 5 which comes with a turbo charger.  However, I use my USB Depot Turbo Charger with an old USB cable on my computer so I have been using the Turbo Charger on it and it works great here too!

The charger comes in a silicone case that you can attach to your key chain.  Now let’s all take a moment an acknowledge my awesome keychains, I just got the stone sea turtle and I am always a supporter of speaking out against domestic violence.  I also have a charm keeper on it, but I couldn’t figure out how to get that in there too.  LOL.  I’m a little in love with my keychains.  Anyway, having the USB Turbo Charger on my keychain is awesome for many reasons, but my favorite is that it makes it easy to keep up with.  No matter where I go, I have it and since it is super light it doesn’t make much difference in weight on my key chain.  Even if I don’t have the USB device in the case, it’s not a pain to have on my key chain.  Overall, I really enjoy the speed and convenience that the Custom USB Charger has brought.  Easy, lightweight, convenient.  All a busy woman’s friend!

#PizzaRanch Hope CD

mail.google.com

Before reading the PR statements (listed below) I listened to the CD they put together.  To be honest, I thought ‘Pizza Ranch’ was some sort of silly band name, but it didn’t matter to me.  What mattered was how good the CD was, because that’s why I’m reviewing it, right? Initially, my post was going to start with telling you this compilation of music totally inspires a sense of hope.  Until I read it’s purpose, now it’s got to start differently.  Only, I don’t know what to tell you.

Guess I’ll just go….  On the three hour trip back to seeing our little blessing I began to listen to the CD Pizza Ranch has put out to inspire Hope, not knowing it’s purpose.  Let me tell you, after almost 7 months of our little one being in the hospital, imagining going home (that hope that things may get on to the ‘new normal’ soon) becomes harder and harder.  As a parent, I keep praying and waiting (and I know it will happen) but some days are hard, others harder and that trip back and forth to the hospital, living there and only visiting your home and pets, is taxing.  Frankly, I think I should be paid in advance, at least 20 years worth.  Regardless, by the third or fourth song in, I was feeling hopeful about life in general, about everything. The rest of the music brought the same good feelings of hope.

Although those at Pizza Ranch who took on this project and put it together may never know the effects of their project on everyone, but hopefully they read this and know that they did make a difference.  More importantly, I hope that you’ll buy the CD and it will bring you some hope and happiness as well.

Adrie Groeneweg had a dream that started in Hull, IA, in 1981, when he was just 19 years old.  It was simple.  Why does everyone have to drive out of town to get a pizza?  With just six specialty and single topping pizza recipes developed by Adrie’s mother, Lorraine, Pizza Ranch was born.  Pizza Ranch’s vision and mission is to glorify God by positively impacting the world and to give every guest a legendary experience.  They have 190+ locations across 13 states including Iowa, Minnesota, South Dakota, North Dakota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Nebraska, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado.

LivingHope

On June 2, 2015, Pizza Ranch released a CD called Living Hope containing twelve songs from many of their favorite Christian artists.  Most of the songs are brand-new and written exclusively for this CD around the theme of Hope.  Artists include Colton Dixon, Francesca Batistelli, Ellie Holcomb, Sidewalk Prophets, Kevin Max, Bart Millard, Passion Band featuring Kristian Stanfill, Michael W. Smith, and Mark Schultz.
The CD will be available to purchase for $5 plus tax exclusively in Pizza Ranch restaurants or for download at pizzaranch.com/livinghope through August 31, 2015.
From Adrie Groeneweg, President & CEO of Pizza Ranch, Inc.:  “This album has a very special meaning for Pizza Ranch.  Although Pizza Ranch is not in the music business, many things have been happening, conversations have been taking place and doors have been opening for this album.  Through these events, I believe it was obvious that God has been behind this for His specific purpose and putting it on our hearts to collectively create this project.  As such, we call this our miracle album, Living Hope.”

Kernel Season’s Gift Pack

Kernel Season's Gift Pack

Popcorn…  in my house…  it’s our addiction.  Monkey and I go through so much popcorn it’s insane.  We actually have a popcorn machine in the living room.  It doubles as useable decor.  LOL.  Whatever excuse I needed to have a popcorn machine.  I love that it is a healthy snack  with relatively small side effects…  Well, unless you add three tons of sugar, butter, or salt.  Doesn’t matter, we are addicted.

Having seen various seasonings at the theater, we were super excited to ks4have a set for our own movie theater themed living room!  Plus, you know we just HAD to have popcorn even more often, as it is only fair to do a thorough review!  LOL.  So, now that we’ve gone through a bag or two of popcorn kernels and maybe a microwave bag or two, I can honestly say that these seasonings are a must for any movie night!  Popcorn is great on it’s own, but add a seasoning or two and you’ll be addicted too!  Plus, it won’t cost 15 bucks a bucket!  😀

With little cost, these seasonings are a great addition to any movie or game night!  They will take your popcorn from good to over the top!  They have an amazing selection of flavors too!  Whether you like sweet, salty, savory or even spicy they have you covered!  Monkey loves the ones with jalepeno and bacon while my favorites tend to be the sweet ones!  Plus, there aren’t that many calories in a serving of seasoning!

Flavors We’ve Tried:

  • Bacon Cheddar
  • Butter
  • Caramel
  • Cheesy Jalapeno
  • Kettle Corn
  • Nacho Cheese
  • Garlic Parmesan
  • Ranch
  • White Cheddar

There are many more great flavors on the site!  I love that they have such great gift sets too!  We have found a product that is to be stocked at all times now!  LOL.

Monster Cereals Review

IMG_4741When my husband saw the Monster cereals sitting on the counter, he was really excited. He grabbed the boxes and started reading them saying they were the same as when he was growing up. It was cute seeing him turn into a kid again for a minute, he is usually so serious! To his great disappointment he had to wait before he could try them, as I hadn’t taken pics yet!  LOL.

Daily he came home and said “did you take your pics yet?” After I finally got them done, he skipped dinner and had cereal instead. I saw him take the first bite, closing his eyes and reliving some good memory. He said it tasted like being a kid again! Judging by the look on his face, that’s a good thing. I know when we run out he is going to send me on a hunt to find more.  The retro Monster cereals are available exclusively at Target and up until October 31st if you buy three boxes you can get a Monster Bash magazine (which includes Recipes, Tips and Tricks for planning the creepiest, scariest, spookiest, most fun Halloween ever!).  You can find more info for them here also.

He has a lactose allergy so he doesn’t get to eat dairy products anymore. After reading the ingredients, we were very happy that there wasn’t any lactose inside! Bonus! There aren’t many cereals that he loves that doesn’t have dairy and he loves his cereal!

As I’m sure you can infer, we are very pleased with the Monster cereals! They all taste just like the original versions tasted and were great! If you are looking for a little nostalgia or just a yummy cereal for the kids, you’ll enjoy this one!

Absolutely Free Gospel Plane: Get Yours Before they are Gone!

Absolutely Free Gospel Plane: Get Yours Before they are Gone!This gospel plane is absolutely adorable and you can print it out for free!  (Love that as well!) Paper airplanes and fold up notes seem to be an obsession from a young age. I can remember the little boys folding their Sunday school lessons up into paper airplanes before class was even over, which is so funny because to this day it drives me crazy when there are creases in paper.  I would always keep mine perfectly straight. lol

Let the Little Children Come fixed that problem by making a Sunday school lesson that’s is meant to be folded into an airplane!  It both amuses me and speaks to me, I don’t know why I never thought of this whenever I taught Sunday School.  Of course, I taught the younger children so they weren’t making airplanes yet, just balls of paper!

On more than one occasion, I have blogged about how much I love their products, like their Halloween tract, my color Inspiration post,  wordless books, and this Plane is no different!  The paper airplanes are such a great idea and such a wonderful teaching tool!  It also goes beyond teaching the Word and helps to exercise the skill and dexterity with hands that the children are learning as they grow and develop.

I was racking my brain trying to think of lessons that go along with airplanes in the Bible and it occurred to me, one of the best lessons might be about how the bird scouted out the land when Noah was sailing.  Then there are lessons that can be taught about how, from an airplane, it’s difficult to see what’s going on on the land but God can see everything because He is everywhere and knows everything!  I’m equally sure that you can come up with even more lessons to utilize them!  I hope that you’ll come back and share your thoughts and ideas!
