Boca Balls - Personalized Balls Review

I received product for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
Sometimes a Facebook event page or email invite just won't do.  When you want to declare an event or have an important announcement, consider Boca Balls.  The company offers customized keepsake balls for every occasion.  At only $16 each (plus shipping) Boca Balls are ten-inch durable vinyl material, customized according to order by local artists in the Boca Raton area. Boca Balls serve as a lasting memento and they retain their original color and the hand-painted message for years. There is a streamlined ordering system where delivery can be completed in 3 steps. The buyer chooses the color and style, enters what customized message they would like, provides delivery address and that’s it.


Boca Balls are sent via the US Postal Service.  The "Save the Date" ball I received arrived near my mailbox.  The mailing labels were on the ball itself, but easy to remove.  I think the balls are a fun way to bring a piece of excitement to someone's mailbox (other than the bills that usually come in).    Because they are actual vinyl balls, they can be bounced and rolled.  Boca Balls are a unique way to make a person's day.

Check Out Choice Hotels' New Loyalty Points Program

I received product in exchange for this post.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

As you may have seen by some of my previous posts, our family likes to do the "staycation" thing and spend the night in hotels for enjoyment.  It's a chance to get away and enjoy some time sleeping in a different room, swimming in pools, and seeing new scenery.  I just signed up for Choice Hotels' new loyalty points program that gives me extra perks and free night stays, once I have achieved a certain level.  Signing up is painless and, best of all, it's free.

The demand for bigger, better, and faster rewards are at an all-time high, even as many loyalty programs – and their perks – are being reduced in scope for members across a number of hospitality categories. Bucking the trend, Choice Hotels has recently announced a series of bold, exciting and completely unique changes to their rewards program, bringing greater and faster value to their over 25 million Choice Privileges members. Some of these new and improved perks include free nights at discounted point levels, instant digital gift cards, and points that never expire!

The program enhancements are being implemented to bring greater and faster value to the over 25 million members of Choice Privileges. Some of the new benefits include:

•Your Extras. Weekday travelers can earn a special reward — a little something 'extra' — right when they check in. For each qualifying stay that includes at least 1 weekday night (any night Sun. through Thurs.), the member can earn a special reward of their choice. U.S members have 5 options, varying from Fuel Rewards® savings at participating Shell locations to Amazon.com credit. International members have 2 options: 500 bonus points or 100 airline miles from participating airline carriers.

•FlexRewards. Get to a free night faster— Members can redeem points for free nights at discounted point levels at participating hotels, varying by season. There will be up to 2,000 hotels reduced during either the weekdays or weekend at any time.

•Digital Gift Cards. The first hotel company to offer immediate in-app gift card downloads, Choice Privileges members can receive instant gratification with new digital gift cards.

•Keep Your Points. As long as members stay active by completing a qualifying activity at least once every 18 months, they get to keep their points.

•10 Points per Dollar. All 5,500 Choice Hotels now earn 10 points per dollar spent – including economy and extended stay hotels, such as MainStay Suites, Suburban, EconoLodge and Rodeway Inn. And, during our award winning promotions, it is now easier than ever to qualify since members no longer need to stay two consecutive nights at economy brands.

For full information about the new Choice Privileges rewards program, visit www.choicehotels.com/choice-privileges
How often do you stay at hotels?  What benefit of the new Choice Privileges rewards program are you most excited about?

My Take From 'The Armor of God' - Week 3

I received no product or compensation for this post. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way. Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services. Your opinions and results may differ.

I recently started a women's Small Group study on The Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer. The book is based upon Ephesians 6:10-18 and explains how to best defeat the spiritual enemies of the world. Priscilla, most recently best known for her lead role in The War Room, does a fantastic job of explaining how to best prepare ourselves to take our stand against the devil.

The Armor of God is a 7-week study, both with the book and videos. I'm going to post each week a summary of what I've learned. I'm not going to go word for word on what's in the book or videos but rather reveal what I've learned and taken from them.
 
Week Three focused on The Breastplast of Righteousness.
 
Righteousness is upright living that aligns with the expectations of God.  The enemy's goal is to derail your behavior from God's truth. 
 
Satan tries to deceive us and we must continually guard our hearts by reading the Bible, reading devotions, praying, and being with other like-minded people.  I can personally attest that I'm at my weakest and most vulnerable when I disconnect from the Lord. 
 
The enemy targets my thinking by causing me to overanalyze and be negative towards others.  With my ambitions, he causes me to become lackluster or unmotivated.  My feelings can become negative and quick to anger. 
 
I can be known as an intimidating person.  My husband can go in to a gas station and come out having been invited to a family reunion.  He's generally friendly and jovial.  Me, not so much.  I have a huge defensive wall and rarely let it down.  I've come to terms with how Satan has targeted my mind, ambitions, and feelings.  I refuse to let the enemy make me miserable or make me feel unworthy.  I am a child of God!  I am worthy; I am special; I am open to positive change.
 
I learned that I will never be perfect.  And I'm okay with that.  No one is flawless.  We can never live up to God's standard of righteousness.  Because we know this, sometimes we make that an excuse to lower our standards and want God to bring His expectations down to our level.  It's not gonna happen. 
 
But the good news is that the penalty of sin is removed and the gift of God's righteousness is given once you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior.  A sin is a sin is a sin, but we are forgiven by the blood of Christ.
 
We need to be aware of the spiritual battle that's waging war.  We also need to concentrate on living a vibrant, healthy life.  God's way is the only way.  And if you mess up, it's okay.  He will forgive His child of God.  Just keep on truckin' and lovin' the Good Lord.  He's got your back.

Renuzit Sensitive Scents - #SensitiveScents Review and Giveaway

I received products for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
There's a lot of people that are always in and out of my house.  If it's not my own brood, it's therapists and nurses for my mother or friends stopping by.  I'm quite particular about how my home smells and don't want anyone to think it stinks or smells funky.  Because of that, I'm constantly using sprays and air fresheners to make the place more inviting.  I don't have a complaint with strong fragrances but some people have sensitive noses.
 
Renuzit has recently introduced the Sensitive Scents line with products that have pleasant and welcoming aromas, without overpowering sensitive noses.  It is available in three variants - Pure Ocean Breeze, Pure White Pear & Lavender, and Pure Water Blossom & Cucumber.  The Sensitive Scents line can be found in Adjustable Cones, Universal Scented Oils, and Trigger Sprays.
 

The Adjustable Cones work best in small spaces.  They are made with biodegradable gel and are formulated to last up to four weeks.  I tend to keep mine on top of the microwave or on the bathroom sink.  The Universal Scented Oils fit in any Glade or Air Wick oil warming unit.  As long as they are plugged in to an outlet, the fragrance will be released.  The Trigger Sprays neutralize tough odors, musky fabrics, and other unwanted smells with instant spray action.  I use it mostly to freshen the smell of my bed and furniture.
 
The fragrances are pleasing, but not overwhelming.  There's still the same aromatic smells that are pleasant to the senses, but the fragrances are more subtle. 
 
 
Win It!

One person will win two free product coupons for Renuzit Sensitive Scents products. 

*Each free product coupon has a maximum value of $5.00.  This is a Rafflecopter giveaway open to residents of the USA.*

Zuke’s® Genuine Jerky Steaks - Dog Treats Review

I received products for review from Zuke's.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

Our dog, Helen, is a two years old.  Although she drives me absolutely bonkers at times, I still like her and want her to be in good health. She's as much a member of the family as anyone else and deserves to be treated well.

I recently received Zuke's Genuine Jerky Steaks and Helen takes to them quite well.  Zuke's is known for creating pet treats with only the healthiest natural ingredients.

Zuke’s® Genuine Jerky Steaks™ are savory slices of 100% grass-fed New Zealand beef.  They are rich in omega-3’s and combined with generous chunks of carrots, potatoes or sweet potatoes for extra vitamins and minerals. Naturally preserved without the use of added nitrates or nitrites, Genuine Jerky Steaks™ are also completely free of grains, artificial flavors and colors.

Of the three varieties available, Helen has tried two - Beef & Carrot, and Beef & Sweet Potato.  Each variety comes in a re-sealable bag.  The jerky steaks themselves are big and thin, with a triangular shape.

Although I'm up for adventure, I wasn't about to taste the dental chews myself. Therefore, I can't vouch for taste. What I can vouch for is that my dog loves them. I've been giving her one of the treats daily and she's like a kid in a candy store when she gets it. I feel good knowing that I'm giving my dog treats that are nutritionally sound, and she certainly seems to like them. I'd say she gives them two thumbs paws up!

Zuke’s® new Genuine Jerky Steaks™ are available at pet-supply chains, independent pet-product stores, natural-food retailers, and online for an MSRP of $12.99. Visit www.zukes.com for more info.

Wordful Wednesday - Drury Plaza Hotel

sister, Traci
 
Saturday night we went to St. Louis to attend Monster Jam.  While there, we stayed at the Drury Plaza Hotel.  Other than the atrocious parking, it was a fabulous place.

Jason, me, Traci and Rodney checking out the city view
 
Jason and I, along with one of my boys stayed in one room while my sister, her husband, and their son stayed in an adjoining room. 

The beds were very comfortable.  It's not often that I sleep well in a hotel, but this one met my needs. 
 
The hotel offered free popcorn and soda for most of the day.  There was also "Kickback" hour where free appetizers and drinks were served.  Appetizers included macaroni and cheese, baked potato, salad, and hot dogs.  I had one Whiskey Sour for my free drink but didn't care for the taste so gave up on trying to get back in line.
 

Ozzy in the lobby
 
The hotel lobby featured a lake replica with hunting dog, a fisherman, and other wild mammals.

Adam in the lobby
 
Between a gymnastics meet, Monster Jam, and AC/DC concert the place was packed.  Jason made it his mission to be mayor and greet everyone he met.  It didn't matter if you were on the elevator or stuck in traffic.  And, more often than not, people took to his welcoming.  That guy's got some people skills.  Much more than me.

Jason the bellhop, my husband
 
It was a nice place to stay and the staff was very courteous.  I definitely recommend it if you plan on attending an event in St. Louis.

Newest Collection from Kohl's Cares - Review

I received products for review from Kohl's.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
When I walk into our local Kohl's store one of the first things I notice is the Kohl's Cares merchandise display. I'm drawn to it because the products are very affordable and monies from the sale of the collection supports children's health and education initiatives nationwide. It's a win, win!
 
A Color of His Own book and chameleon soft toy

The newest Kohl's Cares collection is available at all Kohl’s stores nationwide and on Kohls.com now through early April.  Kohl’s is offering award-winning children’s books from renowned author/illustrator Leo Lionni and complementing accessories priced at just $5 each, with 100 percent of net profit benefiting children’s health initiatives nationwide.
Tote Bag and 101 Kids Activities book 

Books and accessories featured in the Kohl’s Cares collection this spring include:

• Frederick book and mouse soft toy

• A Color of His Own book and chameleon soft toy

• It's Mine! Book and frog soft toy

• Cornelius book and crocodile soft toy

• Swimmy book

• Tote bag

• 101 Kids Activities book

The plush are simply adorable. Although you don't have to purchase a book that coordinates with the plush, both together are a perfect combination. The storybooks are a wonderful read all on their own, but the plush give an added touch. Other than the tags that should be removed after purchase, the plush have no parts or pieces that can become a choking hazard.  And they're super soft!  The books are hardcover and written for young children.
The tote bag is made of polyester and has sturdy blue straps.  It features an artistic underwater design.  I've been using it for my work papers. 
 
The 101 Kids Activities book has enough projects to keep the kiddos busy.  Illustrations are included with each project, and there's modification tips for both younger and older kids.  A couple of the projects featured are a PVC Pipe Tent and Shrinking Cup Flower Sculptures.
Kohl’s Department Stores is committed to giving back to the communities it serves by supporting kids' health and education nationwide through its philanthropic platform Kohl’s Cares. Since 2000, Kohl's has raised more than $274 million for kids health and education initiatives through the Kohl's Cares cause merchandise program, recognized more than 22,000 outstanding kids through the Kohl's Cares Scholarship Program and donated more than 3.2 million hours of associate volunteer time through the Associates in Action volunteer program. 

Have you ever purchased anything from the Kohl's Cares collection? Which item from this newest collection is your favorite?

Random Tuesday Thoughts - Monster Jam and Super Sales

It's another Tuesday and another edition of Random Tuesday Thoughts, hosted by Stacy Uncorked.  If you'd like to play along, link up at her place.
--------------
Friday night I attended a Jamberry Nails party at my sister-in-law's home.  And I got suckered in to hosting a party of my own at a later date.
 
Although I had fun hanging out with the girls, the best part was having my brother help file my nails.  He sometimes comes across with a ruff and gruff persona, but he's got a soft side too.
------------------------
Jason and I were asked to be Section Leaders at church.  It means we will be helping "Make the Big Church Small".  Because the church is so large, sometimes people can get lost in the shuffle.  It will be our job to help people connect, get to know others, and become involved.
--------------------------
I don't go to Shopko very often because I think they overprice on purpose, but I've been there twice recently for their sales.  I purchased 8 shirts, 2 underwear, 3 bras, 1 pair ballet flats, 1 pair socks, and 2 ball caps for less than one hundred dollars.  That's my kind of deals!
------------------------
I've attended a fair share of Monster Jam events in the city where I live.  It's always held at an outdoor raceways venue and, because my husband takes part in Tough Trucks during halftime, we get backstage access.  That means we're up close and personal with the Big-Timers. 
 
We attended Monster Jam in St. Louis on Saturday.  Although it's the same premise as anywhere else, this event was on a larger scale.  The trucks went balls to the wall with their stunts.  It was an adrenaline rush.
 
Adam with his ungodly expensive snow cone in a plastic skeleton mug
-----------------------
I noticed that Six Flags opens on Easter weekend this year.  I purchased a Gold Level Season Pass this year (first time doing that) and plan on making as many trips as possible.  I'll be spending the holiday with Bugs Bunny instead of the Easter Bunny.
-----------------------
That's my randomness for the week.  What's been going on with you?
Ever attend a Monster Jam event?  Are you a fan of Six Flags?  What great shopping deals have you come across lately?

Funky and Fun Fashion with Fuego - Review and Sweeps Info

I received products for review from Fuego.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
I own more socks than the average person.  And, although there are the basics, I prefer my socks to be quirky and make a statement. 

Fuego stores sells an eclectic mix of jewelry, accessories, novelty items and apparel.  Lucky for me, this includes socks. 
For instance, there's the Blue Q I Hate Everyone Too Women's Crew Socks.  They're brown and red with the vintage look of a girl caring for her horse.  That is, until you read the black lettering of "I hate everyone too".  It's sweet and snarky all on one sock.
 
Fuego also sent me two other pair of socks, one covered with pigs and the other covered with sloths.  After checking out all the sock designs on their website, I'm sure my sock obsession is going to grow.
For those who like to go a little quirky with their apparel, Fuego also sells tees with undaunted and peculiar designs and patterns.  The For Fox Sake Women's Tee is just one of many.  This particular shirt is white in color with a picture of a lovely fox.  I won't surprise you with the pun fun of this shirt (just in case you don't know) but I think it's a quite side-splitting way to get a point across. 

The particular shirt I received was smaller than what I usually wear for my size, so I presented it to my mother to wear.  As you can see from her picture, she was all grins and happy to sport the silly shirt.
 

Many of Fuego's items can be found in their stores or are available online at www.ShopFuego.com. From now until March 15, 2016, Fuego is holding a sweepstakes for the chance to win a $1000 gift card.  Everyone who enters will receive a $5 off coupon. One winner will receive a $1,000 gift card to use at Fuego stores or at www.ShopFuego.com.  I'm in it to win it; you should be too!

#Blessings366 - Day 53

I've been a long-time reader of Angie at Blessed Beyond Words and am always encouraged by her faith. Angie has invited bloggers and readers to participate in the #Blessings366 campaign this year.

 Angie's challenge is to post one picture and/or write each day of something or someone you're blessed by. It’s a great reminder to be grateful and thankful, even when times are tough.
---------------------------
Today I'm blessed to have had an amazing weekend getaway.  I spent Saturday night in St. Louis and watched Monster Jam inside the Edward Jones Dome.  We stayed at a beautiful hotel by the Arch and the weather was perfect for walking.
 
What are you blessed by today?

I Will Follow Jesus Bible Storybook - Review and Giveaway

I received book for review from Thomas Nelson.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
 
 
Quick Overview:

I Will Follow Jesus Bible Storybook, written by Judah and Chelsea Smith, will help your children learn about the most important relationship they can ever have. This Bible storybook will show your kids the characteristics of Jesus.

My Review:

As parents, we want our children to be raised with good morals, values and choices.  Jesus is the ultimate provider of guidelines in showing how we should behave and live.  A hardcover book with cutesy illustrations, I Will Follow Jesus Bible Storybook provides many stories of the Bible that show all the good characteristics of Jesus.  The stories are prime examples of Jesus' love and kindness.  For instance, there's the tales of David and the Giant, Joseph's New Coat, and The Woman at the Well.  Both the Old Testament and New Testament are within this book, and the Bible stories are featured in chronological order.  Alongside the stories are scriptures references, and more detailed explanations on why something happened or how we should behave.  The stories are told in a way for children to understand, and they are short enough to read within minutes.  God's love for us is clearly explained.  A blue ribbon bookmark is included with this book, as well as a page to write in for gifting purposes.
