Revell Junior Kit Disney's Cars 3

 When Riley was younger, he was really into Cars. Not just Disney Cars, but every kind of car. He knew all the makes and models and designs and which were his favorites. He knew the worlds fastest car, and what its top speed was, and he completely loved everything with an engine and 4 wheels.

I remember when he was going through this phase, that we bought him some of the Revell kits. He was so excited, but we had to help him put them together, which frustrated him. He was only 6 but he wanted to do it by himself. I am so excited to tell you that now there are kits from Revell that the little ones can do all on their own!



The Revell Junior Kit™-Disney•Pixar Lightning McQueen car is a model assembly kit that will engage your child in a way that ordinary toys can’t. Revell Model Assembly Kits provide engaging, productive play that teaches kids how to follow instructions, build logic, think dimensionally and participate in a non-stop adventure of imagination. The ergonomic screwdriver and unique screw and nut system allows your child to easily assemble and disassemble for hours of creative play. Easy touch hood activates the light up headlights and authentic Lightning McQueen “Ka-CHOW” & racing sounds! They will love the fun of building their very own Lightning McQueen car right from the Cars 3 movie!






The Revell Junior Cars 3 Kits can be purchased online or at Target for about $25 each.

New Chobani Smooth Greek Yogurt




I love that my kids love yogurt. Especially that they love Greek yogurt. It's so good for them, full of protein and real fruit. Recently Chobani sent me a box of their new Chobani Smooth to try.  Chobani smooth has 25% less sugar and 2 times the protein of the other yogurt brands.


Chobani Smooth comes in some really great flavors like:

  • Black Cherry
  • Peach 
  • Strawberry 
  • Vanilla
  • Blueberry





Some of the other great things about Chobani Smooth are:


My kids actually love the Chobani Smooth more than any other yogurt. They love the texture, and the creaminess. Both kids thought the strawberry was the best!

You can purchase Chobani Smooth and other Chobani products at most mass retailers and grocery stores.

Back to School Guide 2017


Whether you home school or public school or private school, I have rounded up some of the best products to help you and your kids get back on track! School starts even sooner for us this year (our co-op meets back on August 15th!) so it's just about time to start planning.


Lice Clinics of America, the nation's largest network of head lice removal clinics, has recently launched a new at-home product to make life easier for parents. When the dreaded letter comes home from the school nurse informing parents of a lice infestation, most start to freak out. But now when lice hits home, don't be worried!
The same process that is proven to be the only cure to super lice, which is also used in the clinics, is now available in the comfort of your own home. The Lice Remover Kit (LRK) is an alternative to OTC products and shampoos, as it uses a pesticide-free liquid gel to remove head lice and their eggs—all with no mess. (And no harsh scent!).



RAGÚ is celebrating 80 years of bringing families together for pasta night, and makes a great dinner everyone will love, especially the kids! From traditional pasta recipes to new favorites, a RAGÚ dinner sets the stage for families to talk about all their exciting back to school stories. RAGÚ’s new Homestyle line has several delicious sauce styles your readers might be interested in like Mushroom, Meat,  Traditional, Roasted Garlic and Four Cheese. Here’s a link where you can learn more about the Homestyle sauces.



When the kids want candy in their lunch boxes, but you also don't want to load them up with everything unhealthy, grab a pack of Hi-Chew. Made with real fruit juice, and just the right amount of chew, these treats are perfect. I stick 2 pieces in with my kids lunch and they are satisfied! 



  • BIC’s fastest drying retractable gel pen, Gel-ocity, is now available in a range of bright, fun colors. 



  • The BIC Velocity pencil features a soft gel grip that molds to your hand and provides smooth, dark writing. The BIC Velocity also has a 75% larger eraser for more erasing power. 


  • The well-known BIC 4-Color is now available with 3 inks + 1 pencil. An efficient writing utensil that can allow you to take colorful notes, edit and sketch!

  • New Intensity Fineliner, is the perfect pen for writing doodling and coloring. The sleek collection is available in a variety of pack sizes and an assortment of colors.

  • With a soft-feel barrel, the BIC Soft Feel retractable ball pen provides the ultimate writing comfort. 

  • Stay stylish with the BIC Atlantis pen that comes in pink or purple that writes in black.





When children have trouble staying regular, they often feel uncomfortable. From the brand most recommended by Pediatricians†, Culturelle® Kids Regularity provides a safe, gentle and drug-free way to help restore regularity and keep kids’ digestive systems running smoothly, making it the perfect choice when changes in your child’s diet alone are not enough.*

Vichy Launches A New Generation of Moisturizer


I love Vichy products. I have been using them for a while now, and I love the way they make my skin feel, plus I love that since I started using them, I get asked if I am really a mom of 2 tweenage boys!

Recently, Vichy launched a new product called Mineral 89.




As the #1 anti-aging brand in European pharmacies, Vichy Laboratoires continues to evolve with the launch of their latest innovation, Mineral 89 Hyaluronic Acid Face Moisturizer.  A true breakthrough in the skincare category, Mineral 89 is a new generation of face moisturizer.

Uncle Matt's Organic Products



Recently I was surprised at the grocery store, at the lack of organic juice choices. There were maybe 2 or 3 brands to choose from. The one that stood out the most, based on appeal and variety was Uncle Matt's.

Uncle Matt's is grown and bottled right here in Florida. It's always organic and pesticide free, and has been since 1999!


Uncle Matt's juice is a delicious blend of USA grown organic Hamlin and Valencia oranges developed over four generations. The Hamlin orange was Uncle Matt’s grandfather’s favorite orange because of its high vitamin C content and dynamic, robust flavor. He would squeeze a glass every morning before he rode the groves. The Valencia orange is Florida’s most famous variety, known for its deep orange color and sweet juice. When you blend these two together you get a dynamite fresh squeezed taste reminiscent of a roadside stand.

I love all the different varieties available! 

  • Orange Turmeric
  • Orange Tangerine
  • Orange Mango 
  • Lemonade
  • Orange with Pulp
  • Grapefuit
  • and so many more! 
Uncle Matt's products are also available in single serve bottles, as well as the family size. You can find a store that sells it here, but I find it locally at Publix and Whole Foods.

Field Roast Products + Giveaway!


When I was 17 I stopped eating meat. All meat. Not for health reasons, but ethical. I couldn't eat meat knowing that it had once been a living creature with legs and a heart and feelings. I know some people say animals have no soul so that's why it's ok to eat them. I definitely do not agree with that.

When you don't eat meat, there are less choices, especially choices that don't contain soy. It seems that soy is everywhere, and I don't believe it's healthy to eat a diet rich in soy products, so I was on the hunt for something I could feed my family that was vegetarian, non soy, GMO free, and delicious.


I found Field Roast products. So what is grain meat? Grain meat is made from wheat. It's wheat flour that has been kneaded and kneaded in cold water until only a thick protein remains. Then it's flavored, formed and shaped into products.


One of the first products I tried was the Celebration Roast. I was skeptical because I hadn't ever tried any grain meat, so I didn't know what to expect. Baking it was very easy, pop it in the oven, and it took about an hour. The smell was amazing! It was rich and filled the house. When we sat down to dinner, the family asked me if we were eating meat, because it resembled it so much! I said no, and we all tried it. The kids and I were super impressed! The texture is wonderful and the flavor is very close to what I remember a turkey tasting like. Definitely good!

Delightfully seasoned with rubbed sage, garlic and lemon juice, this evolution of our classic Celebration Roast 2 lb features a traditional bread stuffing made with fresh onions, celery, cranberries and butternut squash. As a special accompaniment to the roast, we offer you the perfect portion of our Porcini Mushroom Gravy. Simmered on the stovetop, the gravy combines the dark, rich, earthy flavor of porcini mushrooms with diced shiitakes to create the ultimate vegan gravy. A centerpiece, appetizer or sliced in a sandwich; our new Celebration Roast is still perfect for any occasion.



Next, we tried the Field Burger, I put them on buns with all the condiments, and they were a huge hit! We are now adding those into our rotating meal planning. 

We present to you a juicy burger that is full of classic burger flavor and right at home on the grill. FieldBurgers are pleasing sports fans across the country on stadium menus because they raise the bar on the antiquated hockey puck veggie burger we all know so well. Formed by hand in Seattle and built from barley, fresh carrots and celery, these burgers are a meat eater’s delight. Pile on your fixings or crumble into chunks for chili and you’ll believe.

Giveaway time! 1 reader is going to win 2 free product coupons from Field Roast (arv $14.95 each!) Enter below, good luck!

Be Ready for National Hot Dog Month with Applegate Farms



As a kid, I loved hot dogs. As an adult, I still love hot dogs, but I didn't eat them for years because of the sodium nitrates. Then, when I had long forgotten how delicious a hot dog tasted, I happened to see Applegate Farms in the sausage section of the grocery store.

I grabbed a pack of the Uncured Turkey Hot Dogs and was in HEAVEN. They completely filled the no hot dog void I had for so many years, and I was so excited to let my kids finally have a hot dog.


All of Applegate Farms products are:
  • From animals raised humanely without antibiotics, hormones or growth promotants
  • From animals fed a vegetarian or 100% grass diet
  • Free of added chemical nitrites, nitrates or phosphates

I have always been bad about eating breakfast. I just don't get hungry in the morning, then by lunch I am cranky because of not eating yet. I know I need to make sure and eat, but it's hard. So I have always done things like had smoothies in the morning when I can...something to give me a but of a boost.

Cafe Vanilla's essence of roasted coffee with just a hint of vanilla, alongside Cafe Chai's robust blend of aromatic spices, are the perfect companions to Coffiest. All flavors in the new Cafe line continue to provide the added boost of caffeine in conjunction with the relaxing benefits of L-theanine to promote increased cognitive performance.

Mohu Leaf Glide Antenna


I love my Mohu antenna. I have 2 right now, one on each TV in the house. I love that it picks up local channels so that when I am using my Roku I don't have to lose out on things like local news or sports.

The Leaf Glide is the first of its kind. An indoor antenna with the power of an outdoor antenna. The Glide reaches up to 65 miles for a signal (most antennas are 20-25 miles). Using technology called SignaLift the Glide is able to pickup some of the lower frequency channels that other antennas may not get.

The Glide is definitely the largest antenna, but it's still paper thin and reversible. The best part about the Glide is that it's plug and play! Simply plug it into the back of the TV using the cords provided, let the channel scan run, and you are soon on your way to watching great local TV.


The Mohu Glide is the newest antenna in the collection, and here is what makes it special!

  • From the makers of the best-selling Leaf HDTV antenna
  • Most reliable and innovative antenna on the market today

ZipSign is a Dry Erase Sign You Can Customize and Take On The Go!



It's so much fun to make signs, and there are so many uses. This last year before school I bought paper signs and wrote First Day of 5th Grade on one of them for my son, and he held it up and I took his picture. I remember thinking there was nothing I could do with the sign now except throw it away, and I would have loved to have gotten a picture of him at school with the sign, but with all the chaos, it was going to get messy in the car.

ZipSign has a portable roll up dry erase board that you can write on, roll and take on the go. This would have been so much easier. I am definitely going to be using mine for things like the airport, my kids sports games, and even camp this summer. You can also use them to write signs like "Happy Birthday Nana" and hang them on the wall! So easy!


This is how the ZipSign works!

  1. Unroll the ZipSign.
  2. Use a dry erase or permanent marker to create your message or design.
  3. Let your ZipSign roll itself back up.
  4. Put it in your pocket and take it to a game or concert.
  5. Open and close your ZipSign to make a statement!
  6. Clean your ZipSign so you can use it at another event.

Here is a quick video of the signs in action. 


You can purchase ZipSign online here!


Now....onto the giveaway, enter below to win, 1 winner! Good Luck!
