The Wedding Chapel - DVD Review and Giveaway

I received DVD 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.
DVD Synopsis:
Wedding bells rang when The Wedding Chapel arrived on DVD July 23 from Gaiam Vivendi Entertainment and Nasser Entertainment. Shelley Long (“Modern Family,” “Cheers”), Mark Deklin (Tarzan - 2013, Riverworld) and Emmanuelle Vaugier (Deception – 2013, “Two and a Half Men”) star in the heartwarming story about falling in love, forgiving and embracing new beginnings.  When an uninspired and newly single painter flees from her problems, she rediscovers the meaning of life when she immerses herself in the community’s effort to save the local wedding chapel.
Sara, a single painter who is down on her luck, decides to take a break from her mundane life and visit her mom, in hopes of finding some inspiration.  During her visit, she becomes involved in a mission to conserve the local church, which is in danger of being forced to shut down.  Determined to help preserve the historic building, Sara embarks on a journey that not only gives her a new outlook on life and allows her to forget her problems, but also enables her mother to rekindle a long lost love from her past.

My Review:
A joyous movie about a woman with strong emotion to save a local church, The Wedding Chapel is heartwarming and shows strong bonds of love and determination. The plot is predictable but the way it is written engages you to watch it to the end. It's a family-friendly film that will leave you feeling inspired and blithesome.

Win It!
Two people will each win The Wedding Chapel on DVD.

Wordful Wednesday - Christmas In July

As if we don't get reminded enough, it's less than halfway to Christmas.  The campground held 'Christmas In July' on Saturday, complete with campground decorations, breakfast with Santa, and a Christmas golf cart parade.  

During Breakfast With Santa, kids were given coloring books and trinkets after they told Santa what they wanted for Christmas.  Adam is too old for the belief, but still likes the magic of it all.  Breakfast pizza and cheesesticks were served.

I was a scrooge and didn't decorate my campsite but my sister decorated hers, even with a large inflatable that played instrumental Christmas music ALL. NIGHT. LONG.

Are you preparing for Christmas already or waiting closer to time?

Tilda Pinkerton's Magical Hats - Book Review and Giveaway

I received book 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.

Publisher: Quiet Owl Books  April 1, 2013)
Category: Children's Literature/Fantasy/Magic

 Book Synopsis:
Eleven-year-old Madison Mae and her younger brother, Albert, want to help save the family farm during troubled times. When a mysterious Magical Hat Shop appears by their grandpa's red tractor mailbox, the children meet Tilda Pinkerton who presents them with one-of-a-kind hats, causing new ideas and talents to suddenly burst forth. As a flood of harm comes rushing towards the farm, Tilda Pinkerton teaches the children how they can accomplish much more than anyone ever imagined.
Increase your child's vocabulary, self esteem and awareness of social issues, while they enjoy a great story!  Tilda Pinkeron's Magical Hats does it all. Grades K1-4.
My Review:
A delighful book for kids, Tilda Pinkerton's Magical Hats tells of two children, Albert and Madison Mae, who happen on a magical hat shop owned by Tilda Pinkerton. Tilda is a merry soul who gives out hats to people who she knows would make a difference in their lives, and their attitudes. The kids are amazed by the different hats and talking animals who also wear hats. They each choose a hat based upon what they wish to be. As it turns out, Madison Mae wants to be a fashion designer and Albert wants to be a rich businessman. Wearing the hats, the children hatch plans to save their grandpas's farm.

This book was a delight to read and shows children that with a little "magic" they can achieve anything. Children are encouraged to color the illustrations in the book and there is a glossery at the end to help children with words they may not understand.

Rimmel London - Flawless Summer Face Makeup Review

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.

A couple weeks ago I posted how the Rimmel Fresh, Flawless Summer Face is so simple by following easy steps. I've since received the products to try on my face. I'll be the first to say I've never been an expert at applying makeup. I know how to put makeup on my face but it never turns out model perfect. With that said, I do like to experiement with makeup and Rimmel London is a brand I've come to love.

To achieve the Rimmel Fresh, Flawless Summer Face, just follow follow the steps below:

· Begin with Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation ($8.99) a match so perfect, it's undetectable in any light! Light Perfecting radiance foundation, traceless coverage and perfectly flawless skin under any light. Lasts all day and has SPF 18 – perfect for summer!

· Follow by applying Rimmel London Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch ($4.99) to the apples of your cheeks. This lightweight, ultra blendable mousse formula gives an instant touch of radiance and illuminates the skin giving it a healthy summer glow.

· Then frame your eyes by giving your eyebrows definition using the Rimmel London Professional Eyebrow Pencil ($3.33) for a beautifully refined brow.

· Top it off with a favorite, Rimmel London ScandalEyes Mascara ($6.99), to achieve beautiful, voluptuous lashes!

The Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation matches my skin tone and provides all-over coverage. It's not thick or cakey and it covers up most my facial skin imperfections. The Rimmel London Wake Me Up Instant Radiance Shimmer Touch comes in a small tube and I've come to realize that only a small amount is needed. It is shimmery with a hint of glitter that's more obvious if you put a lot on. I like how, when applied correctly, it makes me look more awake and gives a soft glow.

I used the Rimmel London Professional Eyebrow Pencil once for review purposes but won't be using it again. It gives eyebrows definition and would be a good makeup tool for those who define their eyebrows, but I don't use an eyebrow pencil on a normal basis. Rimmel London ScandalEyes Mascara opened my eyes to full, thick lashes. The mascara wand is bigger than other wands I'm accustomed to using but I like how noticeable my lashes were and how full they looked. The mascara didn't clump up or stick my lashes together.

Rimmel London is available at mass market retailers and drugstores nationwide including Walgreens, CVS, Target and Wal-Mart. Visit for store locations.

Persun - Fashion Apparel and Accessories 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.

Wedding Dresses 2013

Persun is an online clothing retailer, offering only the latest in street fashion. Their product lines contain all kinds of fashion-forward products with high quality and competitive prices.  New products are uploaded every week.  Persun focuses on the field of women's fashion and provide you with the most in-season merchandise.   Site navigation is easy and finding what you are looking for can be narrowed by category.  I do wish apparel was accessible to navigate by size so I could weed out what didn't fit me. sent me a blouse and a necklace for review.  The Stripe and Polka Dot Contrast Shirt is available in six sizes and I went with XXL, knowing that blouses on the site would probably run small for me.  I like the contrasting colors and designs of the blouse and it'd be a fun piece to wear with shorts or slacks.  However, the shirt was a little small in length for my arms and it was too tight.  I couldn't get the shirt to button up without bulging.  Although I can't wear the shirt for those reasons, I'm going to see if my teenage daughter can fit in it when I see her.  Due to the material of the blouse, it's recommended that it be hand washed.
The Exquisite Crystal Owl Necklace is now one of my favorite pieces of jewelry.  I'm not generally a big fan of pieces that are adorned with owls but this necklace is just too darn pretty.  The chain has no clasps, making it one length but it's so simple to just throw it around my neck without fretting over opening and closing clasps.  Made of alloy, the necklace features an owl decorated with colorful crystal accents.  The necklace arrived in a pretty blue decorative box which I keep on hand and put the necklace in when I'm not wearing it.

Wordful Wednesday - A Boy, A Dog, and A Nature Walk

Last Saturday me, Adam, and the dog took some time away from everyone else and basked in the nature scenery at the Cedar Creek Trail.  It's a beautiful walking/biking/hiking trail located a few blocks from our house.  
I enjoyed the one-on-one time with Adam and listening to his life's views.  We discussed why Cisco, the dog, is his best friend:  "Cisco's my best friend because I don't have to worry about being popular with him, he doesn't mouth me, I don't have to think he'll backstab me, and he always greets me at the door."  I'll agree with that statement.  

Usually we'll take off our shoes and jump around in the rocks and waterfalls.  But, for whatever reason, all the water was covered in green muck.  

We stopped at one of the bridges and listened to nature's calls.  Really listened.

A boy and his best friend....

Purex Fabric Softener Sheets - Review and Giveaway

I received product for review from Purex.  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.

New Purex Fabric Softener Dryer Sheets do more than just leave your family's laundry soft and smelling fresh, they also reduce static cling and repel pet hair and lint.  Currently available at Walmart, the dryer sheets come in two fragrances - mountain breeze and sweet lavender.  These dryer sheets are improved from the prior Purex dryer sheets in that there is three times more fragrance and great static cling reduction.  There are forty sheets per box.

Personally, I like my clothes to have an evident fragrance after I've washed and dried them.  I received a box of Purex Fabric Softener Dryer Sheets in the sweet lavender scent and the fragrance is definitely noticeable.  The lavender smell is pleasant and long-lasting.  The scent is strong, which I like, but it may be overpowering to those sensitive to powerful smells.  I've even placed a couple of the Purex Fabric Softener Dryer Sheets under the seats of my vehicle and they act as a pleasant freshener.  I don't have to smell trash, body odor, or fast food in my vehicle and can instead get a whiff of sweet lavender.  It is recommended that the dryer sheets be used only once.  Rather than immediately throw them away after use in the dryer, I take the used ones and wipe up the dog hair off my kitchen floor.  They're also great for wiping down my vaccuum filter and ridding it of dirt.  In my view, the Purex Fabric Softener Sheets have me convinced on their ability to reduce static cling and provide a likable, long-lasting scent.
Win It!

One person will win two coupons for free boxes of Purex Fabric Softener Dryer Sheets.

Random Tuesday Thoughts - Junior Olympics

It's been some time since I've participated in Random Tuesday Thoughts.  Well here I am again, throwing out my randomness.  If you'd like to play along, link up at Stacy Uncorked.
Logan heads to Detroit, Michigan in a week to compete in the Junior Olympics.  He'll be participating in one of the Track & Field races.  There will be over 5000 athletes competing in 18 sports.  That's a lotta people!  The event is a big deal but sadly I won't be attending.  Finances and work schedules be the cause of that.  On the plus side, Logan's father and uncle will be there to cheer him on. 
It may be a mid-life crisis on our part, but me and Jason have been contemplating a lot about life lately.  We've discussed moving to a smaller house, possibly buying versus renting, and even giving up camping.  EEK!  Those who know us know that camping is our weekend adventure.  I have super cool friends there and enjoy it for the most part.  But, I'm not kidding when I say that it's a soap opera all day, every day.  Who's doing who, who's being true, who don't even care any more.  (Yeah, I totally stole that line from a song.)

I suppose that's what you get when you've been there five years and you hang with the same 200 people every weekend.  Women are catty and people don't know the first thing about leaving well enough alone.  Sometimes it's like reliving high school all over again. 

So, yeah, Jason and I are weighing the pros and cons of camping.  It's not a decision I'm going to come to lightly so there'll be a lot of pillow talk about it.
I watched the newly released movie "Would You Rather" on DVD the other day.  It's a horror movie in which people are presented with life choices and have to make a decision.  Like "Would you rather stab someone in the room with an ice pick in the thigh or flog them across the back with a whipping stick?"  I'm pretty sure that if either were about to happen to me, I'd have to stab you in the eye in a quick hurry.

Why does it have to be so extreme?  Couldn't it be "Would you rather get a dream vacation for two weeks or spend five days with anyone in the world, but you must stay in your hometown"?  Both of those are a win-win.

Adam after his surgery in 2011

Adam went back to the doctor earlier in the week for a report on his hammertoes.  He had surgery in late June 2011 on one of his feet.  The misery he went through then broke my heart.  The prognosis report wasn't so good this time around.  The first surgery didn't fix his foot; In fact, it's now worse.  Rather than his big toe being at a 45 degree angle as it was when the first surgery occurred, it's now at a 65 degree angle.  And that's just one toe.  They're all curled up and over each other.  He walks fine but it's an obvious deformity and it causes some pain once in a while.

After speaking with the doctor, we've made the plan for another surgery to take place next summer.  He'll be on crutches for six weeks and a walking boot for another six weeks.  I prefer it doesn't happen during the school year so it doesn't take any time away from that.  He better enjoy this summer because his entire summer next year is pretty much down the drain.

How has your week been?

eFoxcity - Fashion Apparel and Accessories 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. is an online fashion clothing wholesaler. They are a supplier of many wholesalers and boutiques worldwide.  They understand that the fashion market wants unique and special ladies clothes, so they are always adding beautiful new styles to their collection. Over 10,000 fashion items designs and new products are added everyday.  

While browsing the site, I found several fashion pieces and clothing pieces that I really liked.  The search navigation is fairly simple.  You can narrow down what you're looking for by price, color, type, and size.  Because the products are shipped internationally, it may take some time to receive it by mail.  The blouse I ordered arrived a month after order. 

Several blouses caught my attention at but one that I particularly favored was the Orange Ladies Casual Loose Splicing Chiffon and Cotton Blouse.  Made of chiffon and cotton, the blouse drapes loosely and flows with the body.  The back is all black while the front shows designs of the Britain flag.  Because the front of the blouse is sheer, I wear a tank top underneath.  This particular shirt is 'One Size' and fits a little too loosely on me.  Nonetheless, I like the style and how comfortably it feels.

A Mexican Style Birthday Dinner

Logan turned 15 years old the other day and asked if I'd take him out to eat at El Rancherito, a local Mexican eatery.  I obliged more so when Logan said I could take photos of him wearing the birthday sombrero they place on birthday guests' heads while the entire wait staff sings.  Logan will usually dodge the camera so getting a goofy picture of him at his will was a highlight for me.

He and I went to El Rancherito by ourselves and chowed down on some Mexican food.  The restaurant supplies a free basket of chips and salsa, which we also devoured.

Then the moment of truth came....

I saw the waiter walk toward us and I had my camera aimed, ready to go.  Only to be let down.

It seems the restaurant did not have enough wait staff on hand to gather around and do the Mexican birthday song.  Logan didn't get to wear the sombrero but he did get a free dessert out of the deal.  AND, best part of all, Logan still let me take his picture.

Hormel Foods Launches New Hormel REV Wraps- #HormelFamily

I received products in exchange for this post as part of the Hormel Family Extended Family Blogger program.  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.

Just in time for back-to-school lunches and after-school snacks, Hormel Foods has launched a brand new product:  Hormel REV wraps.  Hormel REV wraps are the pefect way to satisfy hunger because they're ready to go with you whever life takes you.

Hormel REV wraps have many benefits to your everyday life, including:

Endurance:  protein-rich to provide real sustaining energy

Nutrition:  made with real meat and cheese, an excellent source of protein and a good source of calcium and fiber

Convenience:  no preparation necessary, eaten hot or cold, designed to be hand-held and portable

Flavorful:  classic deli combinations geared towards teens, as well as new, bold flavors for variety

Going from school to athletic or academic practices and competitions, kids and teenagers have little time throughout the day to prepare and eat meals.  Hormel REV wraps offer a real protein based solution that empty calorie snacks lack.

The new wraps are available in eight delicious varieties, including:

Ham and Cheese - ham, cheedar cheese and soft white wrap

Pepperoni Pizza - pepperoni, mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese and soft white wrap

Peppered Turkey - peppered turkey, mozzarella cheese, Italian herb wrap

Meat Lovers Pizza - pepperoni, spicy salami, Genoa salami, mozzarella cheese and soft white wrap

Italian Style Ham - smoked ham, mozzarella cheese and Italian herb wrap

Hot Pepper Ham - ham, hot pepper cheese and soft white wrap

Italian Style - pepperoni, Genoa salami, mozzarella cheese and Italian herb wrap

Spicy Italian Style - spicy salami, mozzarella cheese and Italian herb wrap

I received all eight varieties of Hormel REV wraps and they were quickly devoured by my family.  They're a convenient, tasty snack to help us stave cravings between meals.  Logan thought they were a great bite to eat before going on runs.  They didn't make him feel too full or bloated but gave him an extra protein energy boost.  Shelby isn't one to ever eat big meals so she liked the portion size of the REV wraps.  Adam thought they were great to eat when he got hungry between meals on weekends when we are at the campground.


Although Hormel REV wraps are geared more towards teens, me and Jason liked them as well. I toasted a couple of them for a snack while I was at work and enjoyed the flavors.  Personally, I liked them better warmed up.  Jason liked the spicy ones best because he's a fan of hot foods, but the kids liked the milder flavors better. The Hormel REV wraps are something that can be similarly made at home with ingredients in your kitchen but they are convenient and appetizing.
