When Brian (Taylor Gray) magically switches basketball skills with his hero, Kevin Durant, he becomes the star of his high school team... while Kevin Durant suddenly can’t make a shot to save his life! But with the playoffs approaching, Brian learns that being a true winner means working hard at your own game, and he tries to make things right in time to prevent a catastrophic end to his hero’s season.

How To Remove a Computer Virus when you can't Download


What exactly is a FixMeStick? Well when you have a computer and it's not acting right, you plug in this little device called the FixMeStick which is the size of and works like a flash drive. It's really that simple. Have a virus? Put the stick in the usb slot, wait for the pop up that comes up and says run, click run, and your fixed.

I tried it first on my mother in laws computer. Her computer is so far gone that when I used it, it pretty much only sped up her internet the rest was still really bad.
I plan on trying it again on her computer within the week and see if it needs more then one treatment if possible.

I then tried it on mine as far as I knew I didn't have any issues, yeah my internet was slow sometimes and would lag,  but I have an older computer so didn't think anything of it.

I plugged it into my laptop and sure enough I had an infection (as the FixmeStick calls it) so it quarantined it and now my internet runs better and programs on the computer also seem to come up faster.

I feel it works, and it's nice because you do not only have to use it on one computer you can use it on all computers unlike other computer virus blockers like Norton where you pay a huge fee and it only protects the one computer.

Instead of wasting your money on paying someone to fix your computer every time you get a virus, or paying to keep them blocked off check out the FixMeStick a one payment protector.

FixMeStick can be purchased here for $59.99 and it can be used on up to 3 computers/laptops an unlimited number of times, for up to 1 year. Or you can purchase the FixMeStickPro for $299 and it works on an unlimited number of PC's for one year.

FixMeStick works when other virus removal programs won't because it's an external device, most of the time when you have a virus, the virus stops you from being able to download a virus remover. That's when the FixMeStick is used.

One of the readers of 7 Kids and Us is going to win their very own FixMeStick! Please enter using the rafflecopter form below. Giveaway is open to US residents only.

Knot Genie Tangle Brush Review and Giveaway

Both of my boys have always had long hair, until recently when I got Xander a shorter hair cut. 
Both of them have ALWAYS complained when I brush their hair. 

Ok, I admit, Xander's hair was WAY too long here.

No matter what I do, what kind of brush, daytime or night time, winter and summer. They complain, and run and hide. 

With Xander that was one of our main reasons for cutting his hair shorter. 

When I received the  Knot Genie Detangling Brush  I have to say I was skeptical. 
How could this "bug" shaped brush really make brushing hair easier?

I tried it on myself first. 
Though I still felt some pulling, the wideness of the brush made it take about half the time to brush all of my hair. 

What I also noticed was that after I brushed my hair, it felt REALLY smooth and soft. 

Now, it was time for Riley. 

Riley cries when I brush his hair, every time. 
When I told him about the Knot Genie 
he wanted to try it himself first, so I let him. 


Before Brushing
After Brushing

As you can see, it is very well brushed, and all without crying. 

I highly recommend Knot Genie to anyone who has long hair. 

You can purchase your own Knot Genie Brush or enter my giveaway for the chance to win one!

Crafted Candles Review

Whenever I have family over at my house for the Holidays, I love to light candles. 
Candles just set the Holiday Mood so much nicer. 

When I was given the chance to review Crafted Candles I was very excited. 

I chose the Holiday Stripe Straight Sided Candles 7/8x12 in Candy Cane. 

Holiday Stripe Straight Sided Candles - 7/8" x 12" - Candy Cane dad-ss-st-cc 
I really have a spot in my heart for beautiful Christmas Candles

These are taper candles, and what I noticed first off when burning them is that they do NOT drip!

I have never had a taper candle that didn't drip. I usually spend an hour cleaning all the melted wax off my candle holders at the end of the night, so this was very nice!

One pair of candles is $9 and they also come in green. 

Crafted Candles has many other types of candles available. 
These are a few of my favorites. 


Peppermint Floats Floating Candles - Set of 6 bie-fl-pepper

Glitter Tree Candles tag-ch710025-27


Ornament Ball Candles - 2-3/8 Inches - Set of 3 e-hbo

Happy Sexidays from Edenfantasys.com and Giveaway!

Sex toys - EdenFantasys adult toys store
Looking to get that spark back in your relationship? How about a great gift for yourself, close friend or partner? Check out Edenfantasys!

A one stop shop for all "your" needs. Edenfantasys carries a great selection of teddies, body stockings, corsets, bustier, thongs and more. I personally love the corsets because, well, after having 5 kids I don't feel as sexy as I did before kids and these make a great cover up, which brings my sex drive back up.

One thing I love about shopping online at EdenFantasys.com is that it is very private. I can browse and look at everything and then once I decide what I want, it gets shipped to me discreetly.
I always felt embarrassed going into a brick and mortar "adult" shop, and feeling like I was being watched or judged, this way, I get exactly what I want from the comfort of my own home!


 Looking to experiment? Edenfantasys also has a great line of toys for all your needs, even some to share ;) You would be surprised how a well chosen toy can add so much to a great sex drive. With so many options you will never get bored.

 On top of having a great line of sleepwear, lingerie, and toys they also carry lotions, body wash and more to help relax after a long days work. Along with kissable, eatable body treatments in your favorite flavors like vanilla, chocolate and more.

I love getting back my sexy feeling and with Edenfantasy I am more then able. I am also happy that Edenfantasy is offering a $25 gift card to one lucky reader!  Offer to U.S. residents only ends December 9th 2012.

U Star Novels is a place to turn yourself into the main character of your favorite book!

I was recently given the chance to review a book of my choice (i chose Peter Pan) 


I decided to review it with my nephew, and include my children as the additional characters. 
He was so happy to have his name on the book, and I could see that if you have a child who has a hard time reading for a book report, this would be a great alternative! 

At U Star Novels you can choose books in categories like;
  • Couples
  • Women
  • Men
  • Kids
  • Occasions
I think their Personalized Couples Books would make a great Valentine's Day gift!
With most of the books, you have the option of not only choosing the main character, but the additional characters as well, I love they they give you the choice for each one, to either change the character name of leave it the same. 
For me, it was important to leave Captain Hook as himself, but I wanted to change Wendy into my nieces name to make it more personal. 
Books for Couples
Books for couples are $34.95 and books for kids are $24.95. 
 BUT you can enter to win your own novel here!
 
One winner will receive a novel of their choice with their own characters.

FunBites Cutter Review and Giveaway

Buy One of Each!


I have talked about this before. My kids (Xander and Riley) are picky eaters. 
I don't think Riley would be nearly as bad, but he does whatever big brother Xander does. 
It's my fault they are picky though, because I cave in, I am not the kind of mom that can leave them at the table and say "If you don't like it, there is nothing else for dinner" 
No. 
I am the kind of mom that when they don't like something, I get up and make a 2nd meal just for them. 
So I have kind of given up on trying, and actually, on their own, they are starting to come around. 
It's not like all they want to eat is junk food, one of they favorite foods is fruit..I can't keep enough in stock for them!
 Cube It!
When I was asked to review the FunBites Cutter, I was so excited because I am always cutting the crust off the bread (they won't eat it) 
I choose the squares because who doesn't like tiny little sandwich squares?? 
Xander and Riley were SO excited to try it out, they asked me to make them a turkey sandwich and cut it right away. 

I noticed you really have to rock the cutter back and forth to get it cut all the way, and once it cuts, its so easy to POP out the squares with the 2nd piece. 

I will be using this for pancakes, cheese, sandwiches..and anything else i think they might eat better in bite sized pieces. 

Luv It!

Goat Milk Stuff Review and Giveaway from GoatMilkStuff.com

I could smell my mail from a distance. When I finally got in the house I was shocked to see it was Goat Milk Soap!  I brought it out and left it in my drawers for a few days because it made all my clothes smell great, then, sadly, I ran out of soap ( go figure ) so I brought out the goat milk soap. The one I am using now is called Luv Spell which each soap bar is wrapped up in a cloth like bag so it does not stick to anything it just comes right out. The Luv Spell was great it smells so wonderful it reminds me of a tea I drank when I was little. I loved how great of a lather it made and with next to no effort. After showering, my skin felt super soft. I loved it and I could still smell the scent of the Luv Spell.

The goat milk soap came from a family run company that is based in IN, the company is called Goat Milk Stuff. The family makes all kinds of goat milk products like the soap, laundry soap, bath bombs, lip balms and even lotion sticks. How cool! lotion sticks! wow my husband would love this because he hates having lotion on his hands. I do as well but I make him give me back rubs. I love that the parents are raising 8 kids in the family business  5 boys and 3 girls. Great smelling, great results soap check out Goat Milk Stuff!

Barbie and the Popstar by Kidtoons Review

Brian loves the Barbie movies so it was awesome to get the chance to view Barbie and the Popstar. 

I have bought almost all the Barbie movies that are out there which this movie is a lot like the Princess and the Pauper which is the story about two girls who look alike run into each other and changes places in their life learning new things about one another and themselves. 


I love the Barbie movies also I find myself watching them often, and they have catchy songs!

Barbie is something that does not have to be focused on girls.  That was another thing I thought that "oh its gonna be girly so I don't want my son watching" even though he really had wanted to.

I caved bought him and was happy to see that its not all girly girl its just a kids cartoon that even boys can watch they have Barbie and the 3 Musketeers which is an action movie. Barbie she fights the bad guys which my sons loved.  

Barbie and a Popstar is the newest of the Barbie movies it was released in November so you can find it at any retail store. It makes a great gift for the movie lover, Barbie fan or child. 

Elizabeth really enjoyed the movie, she loved that it was about a pop star, and she loved Barbie! She walks around all day singing the songs, it's so cute!

How to Plan a Creative Baby Shower



A Baby Shower is a wonderful way to celebrate the birth of a baby. Planning a baby shower, on the other hand, can be stressful and intimidating. We have some simple yet great ideas that will help you organize a baby shower that’s creative, memorable and fun.
Make a List
Before you get started, sit down and make a baby shower checklist. You can always download one from the internet to get started, but remember to personalize it for your particular needs.
Most people find that a timeline-based checklist can help avoid any messes. For example, you can have a list of things under “what to do 10 weeks before,” then “things to do a month before” and so on until you have “things to manage the day before”. Under every heading, include all the details, big and small, that you’ll have to attend to.
Remember to include invitations, baby shower decorations, party treats, favors, food, games to play and any special requests that the new mom might have. Make sure that every detail is on your list. And remember to get some advice from friends that have already throw baby showers. They’ll have a lot to say about what works and what didn’t.  
Invitations and Thank-you Cards
The invitation is one of the most important items for the baby shower. It introduces the theme of the baby shower and the colors of the baby shower to your guests. Invitations can be ordered online or handmade. We suggest a combination of the two. This will help add a personal touch and yet you won’t have to slave over making invitations. After all, you have a lot to do.
Some suggestions we have are adding a picture of the expecting mom or adding embellishments (like paper flowers, little bows, or beads) anything to give it a little personality. These little touches will make the invitations memorable and special.
As an added touch, design similar thank you cards for the new mom. You can give them to her before the party, along with the invitation list and complete addresses. This will help her be more organized and take some of the stress of having to think about thank you cards after her baby shower. Trust us she will greatly appreciate it.  
Decorations and Party Favors
First impressions are always the most important. No matter the theme or the color scheme, your decorations and party favors should complement each other and have a clean presentation. There is an endless array of baby shower themes to choose from. You can choose different animals or flowers or cars or sports or even children’s books. Whatever theme you choose, decorate with a baby in mind. So incorporate different baby items that add to your theme.
As for colors, we suggest you choose three. Choose one main color and two colors that compliment or add to the main color. An example is light pink as a main color and hot pink and light green as the other colors. The secondary colors should be used sparingly and as accents.
You should always give special attention to the centerpieces. The centerpieces should reflect the same theme and/or colors of the baby shower. They can be simple arrangements of baby items or elaborate arrangements of baby items. We especially love baby diaper cakes as centerpieces. They make such a great statement and are so practical.
Baby shower favors are should also have a personal touch. If you can’t make them yourself, our suggestion is to embellish or add to the ones you ordered. You can get boxes or bags or jars and fill them with all kinds of goodies and treats. Decorate them with little feet or anything cute that reminds people of babies and finish it off with a color coordinating ribbon and bow.
Pictures and/or Videos
Capture each and every precious moment. Whether you use pictures or videos, make sure to catch every detail of the celebration. You can ask some guests to help you take pictures of the entire event. If you feel creative enough, you can make a photo book of the baby shower. The new mom will simply love it and she’ll love you for being such an amazing hostess.
This guest post was written by Liz Hur who is a devoted mother with a passion for DIY crafts. She makes diaper cakes from her website at ediapercakes.com.

Are you looking for GREAT Gift Baskets this year?

They are easy, you just order your favorite one, and have it shipped. 
I remember one year, I attempted to make my own gift baskets for some friends and family, I thought it would be easier and less expensive than buying them premade. 
I was WRONG!



Hearth Warming Holidays
First of all, I spent at least 4 hours planning what I was going to put in them, and at the store actually buying the items. 
Second, I ended up not having enough of one item and too much of the other, so the baskets were all different (which can be good, but I was going for unity) 
 Lastly, I spent WAY more than I wanted to, and when i figured it all out with time and money I spent, I would have been better ordering online. 

The very next year I found Gift Baskets Plus 
and I have been ordering with them ever since. 
That was 5 years ago!

They make all kinds of beautiful baskets ranging from 

Chalk it up to Starbucks
Coffee and Tea

Organic Fresh Fruit and Wine Box
Organic
Christmas Ale's
and Beer!
Right now, if you order a Gift Basket at Gift Baskets Plus
you can save 15% with the order code 15OFF. 

Gift Baskets Plus has many other baskets to choose from:
Happy Birthday
Get Well
 Thank You
Sympathy
Romantic
