NurishPet has so many great products!  We’re loving the Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil that we’ve been trying out!  They’ve got a good bit of other great health for pets.  It seems having them has gotten so complicated.  I grew up on a farm and always had dogs, horses, calves, cats, and so many other types of animals.  Back then, we treated most things in our pets on our own.  We fed our dogs scraps and they lived long, full lives.  It’s great that we know so much more about how to help our furbabies be healthy these days, but it can be so overwhelming at times!

Free Pet Resources You Won't Want to Miss: An Ever Ongoing List

Giving my dogs fish oil isn’t a new thing, in the past I’ve done so from time to time, as there are many benefits.  I was super excited to try out NurishPet’s Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil as there are tons of great things out there about them.  Made in the USA, these soft chews are all natural, gluten and dairy free.  Both my Great Dane and Chihuahuas absolutely love them.  Providing fish oil can give your dog nutrients that they need and, as a bonus, they seem to think they are treats!  They support the immune system, heart health, anti-inflammatory properties, healthy skin and coat and cognitive function.  This particular product also has Vitamin E, Kelp and Vitamin C.

Be advised: I have read multiple resources that discourage from feeding fish oil daily, stating that it can cause their bodies to stop producing some things as they become dependent on using those that come from the supplement.  Instead, use them as a weekly treat, which will also ease the pain on your wallet!

Coming Home For Christmas

viewerI am just going to start this review by confessing: I am a Christmas junkie.  I love it, all of it, the Christmas specials, the feelings they bring, holiday gatherings, decorating, all of it!  The thought of having a perfect Christmas drives me all year long!  This year I have had the privilege of reviewing Christmas stuff- I’m in way up to  my ears with happiness over this one!!!

Now, on to my thoughts!  The movie has a great story!  Having seen probably a hundred Christmas movies, I can honestly say that I haven’t seen this story before!  I loved the story and the message behind it!  The set designers did a great job of making it a believable little town and homes!  The actors could use some work, but then perhaps the fact that they aren’t household names is what makes this special.  The film makes you feel good and even amidst mediocre acting you want to watch, to hear the story, to see it unfold.

Overall, I can’t turn down any holiday movie, good or bad.  This one has a great story, an actual unique one which is a rarity.  While this probably won’t be your new holiday favorite, it is one you will feel good watching.  Personally, I enjoyed it.  I am a sucker for a good Holiday story!

About The Movie

After their parents separate, two estranged sisters who haven’t been on speaking terms reunite in hopes that having a family Christmas all together for the first time in years will bring their Mom and Dad close again. They plan to do this in their old family home… the only problem is someone else lives there now.

The DVD includes a limited edition Norman Rockwell print!

Who is Norman Rockwell?  Rockwell was famous for his famous American culture illustrations and artwork. He was born in the late 1800’s and died in the mid 1900’s.

Director: Vanessa Parise
Cast: George Canyon (Christmas Miracle, Dawn Rider, Man of Steel), Aaron Pritchett, Britt McKillip (Dead Like Me), Carly McKillip (Hot Rod)
$14.99
Available at Walmart
Soundtrack also available featuring holiday songs performed by George Canyon

1 Girl Nation CD Review

img1.2

About 1 Girl Nation

Landing in the space where One Direction meets TobyMac, 1 Girl Nation is an exciting blend of upbeat pop music, with lyrics that are totally focused on living life for God, even while you’re young. 1GN, as they’ve already been dubbed, stars Carmen, Kayli, Kelsey, Lauryn Taylor and Lindsey, five girls with a passion for telling their fans about Christ through their music. Their first single, “While We’re Young,” can be heard on radio stations across the country and their self-titled debut album is available now!

img3.2My Thoughts

Even after reading the description above, I expected to hear something that I really couldn’t enjoy but I was pleasantly surprised.  1 Girl Nation has a sound that reminds me of a mixture of 80’s girl bands, modern day secular music, and a hint of contemporary Christian wrapped up in a praise and worship band.  As their pictures suggest, their music is fun and joyful.  With their primary target audience being pre-teen, teens, and young adults I think 1 Girl Nation should be on their way to the top!  I don’t think it will be long before they are being blasted all over Christian radio stations.  They sing songs that make you feel good but aren’t like the typical music you hear.  It wasn’t far into the CD before I was bobbing my head and enjoying the music.

BestofMachinery.com is running a fantastic giveaway that appeals to Moms and Dad’s, Uncles and Aunts, and of course… Grandparents!

I have to say, this is a step up from riding a Tonka dump truck down hills as a child!  It certainly did not come with it’s own equipment for the dump truck to utilize!  Perhaps if it had, I wouldn’t have been riding it down the hill!  Well, that’s probably not true.  But in case you don’t have an old school Tonka, or a hill, this sandbox is awesome!

The prize is a functioning Little Tikes Big Digger Sandbox! This is no ordinary sandbox. It features a sand area with molded ramps and roadways, and a real working excavator to dig the sand and load up the toy dumpster truck! It includes all the accessories, too!

Winner Will Receive:

Little Tikes Big Digger Sandbox! (a $50+ RV)


Product Details:
Sand area features molded in ramps and roadways
Use the real working excavator to dig in the sand and load up the dump truck
Truck ramp doubles as lid to keep sand dry
Accessories included: 2 characters, sand cup, sand sifter, shovel, rake, dump truck

World Vision: Helping All Around the World

IMG_4771What if you truly could make a difference but the catch was you would never actually see the results?  Would you do it?  Would you step out in faith, obeying that call and overcoming your self doubt?  Often donating to charities are this way, you know what their cause is but you don’t ever see result in person.  I feel like that is exactly what we are called to do.  We are to step up and do the right thing, whether we can see a great difference or we will never truly know.  Sometimes, it’s not about anything we thought.

World Vision is a not for profit group that helps children and families to step closer to overcoming poverty in 100 countries, including the US.  There is a saying about teaching a man to fish so that he might be able to provide himself food forever.  I’m sure that you’ve all heard it, it seems to be everywhere!   Through World Vision, you can buy families farm animals, help them with wells, help pay for basic education, or even go literal with it and pay for a fishing kit for someone.  The skills they learn don’t just help them for a year or two, they help the local economies and help families turn desperate situations to journeys of hope.  You can donate any amount, no one will be upset if you can only donate a small amount, as every donation counts.

An amazing gift you can give someone who has everything is a donation in their honor.  You’ll get a little card about what you donated telling the story of how it will help or you can order from their gift catalog and get a free gift by donating to the maximum impact fund.  The gifts that are available are amazing and all are hand made!

We hope that you’ll take a moment this holiday season and donate to something a little more important than lining the pockets of corporations.  Make a purchase that will effect a lifetime, not be put in the back of the closet, lost, or broken.  A purchase that will change lives, perhaps even yours.

Kyvan BBQ Review

kyvanBBQThe other day I was looking up what foods were well known around the country and realized that it wasn’t just in my head- the South really is famous for BBQ!  That being said, I will happily admit that I am a BBQ fanatic!  I love it way too much not to keep trying new brands when I come across them!  I swear there are at least 4 different types of BBQ sauce in my fridge!  Different sauces for different uses.  😀  Or perhaps my flavor of the day whenever I break them out!

We tried out Kyvan and have found a new perfect marinating BBQ sauce!  I made the traditional BBQ for our house- BBQ Chicken.  One of my favorite foods forever, so I know a good one when I see taste it!  Kyvan was delicious!  Soaked into the chicken and made the chicken amazingly good!

The sauce has a solid flavor and it was just amazing, until I cooked it on the chicken.  Then, it was unbelievable!  If you haven’t already, check it out, you won’t regret it!  I’m dying to try their other products!!!  I can’t wait to try it in some other dishes!  I think it would be amazing in baked beans!

Audrey Bunny: A Great Kid’s Story Book

Audrey_Bunny_coverI must really be getting soft these days because Audrey Bunny almost made me cry.  LOL.  It’s such a sweet story!  It reminds us all that those little flaws we fear are sometimes just what other people love about us!  Audrey Bunny is a beautiful story about a bunny who had an imperfection which made her feel like she could never be loved.  A very good reminder of how we are so very loved!

Included in the book is a Parent Connection in the back so that you can interact with your child a little more about the story.  It shares some good talking points and I think that any little girl would love to have this book read to them over and over again!  It will keep you all grounded in knowing that you are special, no matter what flaw you think makes you unlovable you are not!  I think that this story is a great confidence builder and is especially great to help with insecurities!

Audrey Bunny

From best-selling women’s author Angie Smith (I Will Carry You, Mended) comes this sweet children’s book about a stuffed animal named Audrey Bunny who fears her imperfections make her unworthy of a little girl’s love. She’ll learn the truth soon enough, and young readers will learn that everyone is special and wonderfully made by God.

About the Author

Angie Smith is the wife of Todd Smith (lead singer of Dove Award winning group Selah), best-selling author of MendedI Will Carry You, and What Women Fear, and one of the most popular speakers and blog writers in the country. She holds a Master’s degree in Developmental Psychology from Vanderbilt University and lives with her husband and daughters in Nashville, TN.

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!

Skinny Pop Review

image

We’re just a couple of weeks away from Halloween and there’s one thing that’s on everyone’s mind… treats! Welcome to the Treat Yourself Giveaway Hop, hosted by So Easy Being Green and Viva Veltoro! In this Hop, you’ll find lots of special treats to keep your entering giveaways until it’s time to go out and gather your own!

Be sure to hop around to all the giveaways in the Hop Linky below, and don’t forget the ultimate treat… the Treat Yourself Grand Prize!

We recently took Skinny Pop on a road trip.  From the South all the way to the East coast, well almost.  We were about 3 hours away from the edge of the country to the beginning of the ocean!  Would have loved to go all the way, but we were running low on energy and funds!  We did enjoy our Skinny Pop all the way!  And back!

We are fresh popcorn lovers around the Zoo.  So much so that, after much heavy hinting and a little shameless begging, we got our very own popcorn maker that looks like a smaller version of one that goes in a movie theater.  We tried for a big one, but those are super expensive!  Nothing beats a good movie and fresh popcorn.  You could have guessed that we are picky when it comes to our popcorn.

imageSkinny Pop has amazingly enough lived up to our love of movie theater popcorn without the butter yet held on to the flavor!  I don’t know how they did it, but they did!  The flavor is so amazingly close that I think if it were heated up we wouldn’t be able to tell much of a difference in a blind taste test, aside from the lack of greasiness.

As you can see by the Monkey’s faces, we loved the popcorn!  Skinny Pop is all natural, cholesterol free, zero trans fat,  free of dairy, peanut, tree nuts, gluten and GMO.  With all that healthiness, we can’t help but open up another bag!!!image
