My Thoughts

This pillow is perfect for naps, long car rides and for every day use. It is super comfortable and soft. My son loves sleeping and napping with this pillow. He uses it every day. I love the fact that it is meant for his age and it will keep his head and neck comfortable during sleep. The Pillow case fits onto the pillow perfectly. I did not have a hard time getting the pillow case on the pillow. Both the pillow and pillow case are machine washable which is nice because children are always spilling things :). The pillow case is soft and durable. I have not had any trouble with the pillow case fraying or ripping. Even after washing and drying. I recommend both of these products.

Both the pillow and pillow case come with a lifetime guarantee!

The Christmas Pickle Tradition Gift Set Review

 
 
Welcome! Today, I share with you a Christmas Tradition that I love and treasure. It's The Christmas Pickle Tradition. This tradition as been around for over 100 years. It is share amongst families every year around Christmas. The Christmas Pickle Tradition is a wonderful holiday story and that reminds us all about the true spirit of Christmas.  Follow the journey of Pickle Elf as he learns the magic of giving, and inspires Santa to begin this wonderful Christmas tradition.

Legend says that the first child to find the Christmas Pickle on Christmas morning gets to open the first gift. The child(ren) leave the Christmas Pickle out for Santa next to his milk & cookies and Santa will hide the pickle on your tree. Not only does the child get to open the first gift, but it is an extra gift from St. Nick! Start a new tradition with your family this year!


A note from Santa:

Leave me the Pickle.  To hang on your tree. By the milk and cookies. Is where it should be. When the morning time comes. No sneaking, be smart! You must wait for your family. For the search to start. On the count of three. Little feet start to run.  The search for the pickle.  Has finally begun! The lucky child. Who spots it on the tree.  Will receive the first present. A gift just from me.


My Thoughts

Including this Christmas Pickle, we have 5 hanging on our tree. My sons are aged 3 and 11 months so it was only until this year where my 3 year old started to get into this tradition. He has me read this book to him almost every day. We are excited to leave our Christmas Pickle out for Santa on Christmas Eve! I cannot wait for Christmas Morning! The book is 32 pages long. Those pages are beautifully illustrated. I love the idea of the Christmas Pickle because it bring fun and excitement to Christmas. And, it shows children what Christmas is all about! This gift set is something that every family should have!

The Christmas Pickle Tradition: author of The Christmas Pickle Tradition, Tammy Lee Dwyer, saw a need to formalize the tradition when she and her son went in search of a storybook explaining the tradition of hanging a pickle ornament on a Christmas tree. The long-loved ‘PICKLE’ tradition is now available in a gorgeous gift set for families to cherish year after year. This gift set comes with one book, one Christmas Pickle and an annual pickle finder chart! All in a ready-to-go gift box! Which makes for the perfect gift.

Merry Christmas,

Very Berry Bath Bomb Gift Set Review


 
Hello! Today, I share with you a Very Berry Bath Bomb Gift Set! This gift set comes with 3 fun and fruity bath bombs. They fizz when placed into water. Making it fun for kiddos while they take a bath! Scents include: Strawberry Pavlova, Tutti Fruitti and Very Berry. These bath bombs make a great gift or stocking stuffer!
 
 
 
My Thoughts

These bath bombs are okay. My son enjoys the fizzing bath bombs so he got a kick out of them. I am not too fond of them because they left his skin feeling slimy and gross. The scents of these bath bombs are a little too strong. But, their scents are nice. The two pink bath bombs left a terrible pink ring around the bottom of my tub. I had to use a magic eraser to remove the pink ring. The white bath bomb has little colored pieces in it. The pieces stick to the walls of the tub and dry. It's tough to remove those pieces.

The bath bombs are about the size of a baseball.  I do not recommend these bath bombs. Save your money.

I received these bath bombs in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own. Always!

Chomps Sticks Review and Giveaway!


 
 
Welcome! Today, I share with you a healthy, all-natural snack! Meet Chomps Sticks! I will be sharing with you product information and photos. As well as voicing my opinion on these new, go-to snacks!



The Creator of Chomps Sticks use to love Slim Jims, but realized one day that they were so unhealthy and full of yucky ingredients. So, he invented Chomps Sticks. A healthy, all-natural jerky snack that contains NO nitrates, NO MSG, NO fillers, binders or added preservatives. Rest assured that when you are chewing on a Chomps Stick that you are eating guilt-free. These Chomps Stick are made from only a few organic ingredients. Including- 100% Grass-Fed Non-GMO New Zealand Beef, and a handful of natural spices! That. Is. It! Chomps Sticks are made with no added sugar and they are gluten-free, Which makes them the perfect paleo snack! Additionally, these jerky sticks have less salt than most of those made by other commercial manufacturers. Each Chomps Stick is one ounce. That one ounce is packed with 9 grams of protein. Flavors include: Original, Hoppin' Jalapeno and Crackin' Cran. Made in the USA and U.S inspected and passed by the Department of Agriculture. They're shelf stable for a whole year and the only natural preservative used is celery juice! Try some today!

 


My Thoughts

These Chomps Sticks are packed with deliciousness! Slim Jims do not compare! Chomps Sticks are more tastier and healthier. They are by far the best jerky stick available on the market. Put one of these bad boys in your purse, suitcase or diaper bag. Chomps Sticks also make the perfect stocking stuffer! They are sure to satisfy your rumbling tubby!
 
My favorite flavor is the Hoppin' Jalapeno. Don't get me wrong, I love every flavor. But, I am a huge jalapeno fan! To me, grass fed beef just is so much more tastier. That's just one thing that makes these Chomps Stick so good. I can have a protein packed snack without having to worry about yucky ingredients.

Chomps Sticks, have you thought about making a sausage?

I received free Chomps Sticks to create my review. All opinions are my own. Always!

The Gift Giver Book Review


*Sponsored Post

Welcome! Today, I share with you a great Christmas book! The Gift Giver, written by Jacob Haslem and Nicholas Allen, is the perfect book to read to your little ones on Christmas Eve. The book's illustrations are beautifully done by Elissa Weaver. It's a book that is sure to get your kiddos excited about Christmas Day. The Gift Giver is available in Paperback, Hardcover and Kindle. Add The Gift Giver to your bookshelf today!


The Gift Giver
 
On Christmas Eve a boy stirs from sleep to find an old man, in the living room, dressed in red with a bag full of gifts. Excitement soon gives way to disappointment as he finds he has received fewer gifts than expected. The old man sees the young boy's protest and tells the story of his origins and his motives. As the boy becomes privy to this mystery, a question comes to his mind: is it by magic that the old man accomplishes his task, or is it something else... The lesson he learns will change the way he views Christmas forever!

My Thoughts

Christmas is my favorite holiday. Now that I have two boys, Christmas is so exciting. One thing that I love to do this time of year is read Christmas books to them. There is nothing better than snuggling under a warm blanket while reading a new book. The Gift Giver is one of our favorites. The first time that I read this book, I read it about 5 times. My boys, and myself, love the story. The illustrations are beautiful and lively. This is a book that really gets you into the Christmas spirit. It's a great book to teach your children the true meaning of Christmas. It's also a great way to get your family together. Reading is so important. If you are a fan of The Polar Express, and T'was the Night Before Christmas, you will love The Gift Giver. I recommend this book!

The Gift Giver is 40 pages long and is available for purchase today! Order today to receive before Christmas!

Proceeds of the paperback version of this book will be donated to The Nazarene Fund to aid in the resettlement of Christian and other religious minority refugees of the middle east.

Quinn Popcorn's Parmesan & Rosemary Popcorn Review


 
 
Welcome! Today, I share with you Quinn Popcorn! A popcorn that is made with a Non-GMO Organic corn. The company uses real ingredients in their products. You will not find any yucky preservatives in this delicious popcorn! Available in microwaveable bags and in bags where the popcorn is already popped. Flavors include: Real Butter & Sea Salt, Parmesan & Rosemary, Vermont Maple & Sea Salt, Hickory Smoked Cheddar and Just Sea Salt. GMO Certified.


 
Quinn Popcorn has kicked GMO's, preservatives, flavorings and unpronounceable ingredients to the curb. You will never, ever find any unhealthy ingredients in their products. Even the bag is safe. The bag does not contain any chemical coating or metalized plastic heating elements. The PurePop bag is made compostable paper. Quinn Popcorn is a must try! Visit Quinn Popcorn's Store Locator to find their popcorn in a store near you.
 

My Thoughts

I tried the microwaveable bags of popcorn. This option allows you to pop the popcorn and then add the toppings yourself. Just pop a bag, add packet number 1 to the bag and give the bag a good shake. Then, add packet two and shake again. That is it! Having the option to add your own topping to your popcorn is awesome because you know what's going on each kernel. Natural, healthy toppings that is!

The popcorn pops nice. You know how sometimes you pop a bag of popcorn only to find that the bag is half full? Not with Quinn's. The entire bag was FULL of delicious popcorn. I tried the Parmesan & Rosemary Popcorn and it is delish! I must admit that I ate almost the whole bag! The popcorn was cheesy and perfectly seasoned with just the right amount of Rosemary. So so good!

I am a huge popcorn fan and I look forward to popping several more bags of Quinn Popcorn! And once I find a bag of already popped popcorn in my area, I will be indulging in that, too!
