What’s my Dog’s DNA?

We recently rescued a beautiful St Bernard dog, Beethoven, from our local Humane Society. He looks like a St Bernard.  He eats like a St Bernard.  He acts like a St Bernard.  He must be a St Bernard. Well, I was approached by Wisdom Panel to have Beethoven's DNA tested. They provided me with the kit of which I have since sent in and am anxiously awaiting to know what it showed.  It takes a couple of weeks upon their receipt of the sample to get the results  (I will update you when I receive the report) The kit consisted of 2 little brushes to obtain my dog's DNA from the inside of his cheek.  All the information of what I needed to do was right there on the box and so easy to … [Read more...]

Hex Performance Product Review

I had the pleasure of trying out the Hex Performance products to wash my boys' (and my husband's) stinky sweaty hockey gear. There’s a smell that can build up in gear and athletic apparel that doesn’t come out, no matter how many times it’s cleaned. The car, house, and environment become a smelly locker room and forces a quarantine of gear in cold garages (or anywhere to be free of that smell!). HEX scientists have created a new formula designed specifically for performance gear and apparel that truly cleans and removes unwanted odors and bacteria from performance gear and apparel. Hex Performance has a 2 part system to clean and to keep the active gear odor free for up to 30 days. I … [Read more...]

Craft Fail by Heather Mann

My friend, Heather Mann, wrote a book, Craft Fail: When Homemade Goes Horribly Wrong. She wrote a great book based on being real. We try to be perfect when blogging.  We try to get the best pictures.  We try to make the best projects.  We try to make the best projects to take the best photos of to share. Heather captured what pretty much every person who has tried to do something that has looked easy and inspired them and thrown out after smacking their forehead while thinking, "I spent time doing this" I have a recent craft fail myself I'd like to share ... Meet my Minecraft cake that went horribly wrong. I wanted to make this camo cake as the inside of my boys' Minecraft birthday … [Read more...]

Chick-Fil-A – Grilled menu items are great in kids’ books!

Chick-fil-A officially has rolled out three new entrees – the Chick-fil-A® Grilled Chicken Sandwich, Chick-fil-A® Grilled Chicken Club Sandwich and Chick-fil-A® Grilled Nuggets – in an ongoing effort to provide more flavorful and “craveable” grilled options for its nutrition-minded customers. I brought the delicious tasty Chick-Fil-A food to my youngest boy's baseball practice with all the fixins and we had a little dinner picnic at the field the other night.  I know we are not alone in the race to get home from school, do homework, feed the kids {a healthy meal}, and get to where we need to be at a certain time for an after school activity.  I know this to be very true. Chick-Fil-A food … [Read more...]

The 28 Day Proskins Challenge

I was provided a pair of Proskins tights to review.  The plan it to wear them for a minimum of 8 hours a day for 28 days! Bubbye Cellulite ... Hullo smoothness!!!! I've always been a skeptic on the anti-cellulite creams, etc.  I've always believed in the good ol' healthy diet and exercise theory to beat the 'ugly bumps'.  It has worked for me in the past when I lost 60 pounds post baby and competed in my first bodybuilding competition. I would love to be in top shape again just like this ... We will see what the Proskins tights do for me.  It's seriously great that they chose me to do the review ... I like to be proven wrong or have my eyes opened to things that I am skeptical on. … [Read more...]
