Amigo Games Review and Giveaway



In our house, we are lovers of all board games. We try to have game night at minimum one time and up to three times a week. With having a younger one still who doesn't always quite get all the rules. The simpler the game the better. Amigo games has the perfect games for younger kids. Engine Engine No 9 is perfect for any train lovers in your life. Both my boys love trains, so they were more then excited when they seen this game.
With Amigo games there are only five simple rules to follow per game. The object in this game is for each player to be able to get their train cars to the train station. This game includes two number die, and one color die. My boys got a kick out of this game. And with it lasting only about 30 minutes each time, it is perfect for a quick game before bed time. This game is rated for 5 and up, but my 3.5 year old can also play rather easy.
Connect the Thoughts is almost like a more intense version of the classic match game. This game is also rated for 5 and up, but my 3.5 year old played along and did rather well. There is 80 cards, and one bell. The youngest player rings the bell. I think the best part about this game, is everyone plays at once. So it goes quickly. You match pictures from one card to the other, but they can only be added to the outside of your line. You want to match five cards. Then you ring the bell. If you didn't match your five cards, you flip them all back over and put them back into the pile. The player with the most cards at the end of the game wins. This is very fun, and fast paced. My entire family had a great time playing this game.

Instax Mini 9 Camera Review



Growing up, I used to have an instant camera. It was one of my favorite things, it was all the rage back then. I had so many pictures of the oddest things. I felt so cool though. My mom has always been huge into photography, so when I had my own camera, and I didn't have to wait for the 35 mm film to be brought in and develop. There was nothing more fun growing up at a sleep over then taking a selfie with your friends before the term selfie was even invented. And then being able see almost instantly what you guys looked like in the picture. Then came the digital age, and it just wasn't as fun.





When I was given the chance to check out the Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 I was so excited to see if I still loved these instant cameras as much as I did as a child. This did not disappoint. The smokey white color was suttle and perfect. I loved how big the camera is. It is easy for all size hands to hold. My kids both thought it was the coolest thing that the camera printed out the pictures after you take them. I am also amazed at how well the batteries hold out on this camera. It auto shuts off after sitting for five minutes without use. And the two AA batteries will last roughly 100 shots. 


This is the perfect  for you to be able to re-live the good old days, or if you are big into scrap booking even. You can find the Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 at many local retailers, or by clicking here

American Paper Optics Review



My kids, and I love playing with different glasses. My boys are glasses addicts. American Paper Optics has all your paper glasses needs. I remember as a child, the only paper glasses you would see around were the  blue and red ones for 3D movies. American Paper Optics has more then just 3D glasses. I was amazed when my package came how many fun glasses they actually have. I had a hard time even being able to take pictures without my boys trying to take every pair. 

American Paper Optics has the coolest assortment of glasses. They have everything from glasses to check out holiday lights with. Which are a huge hit in our house. My kids will spend hours playing with the different glasses looking at the lights and just giggling about the different designs they see. 


My youngest was loving being a model for me when I took pictures. He thought he was so cool becoming a unicorn, and loved that everything was pink. 


He also loves dinosaurs so much. These paper glasses are perfect for summer party favors. Since you can get them in so many cool deigns, everyone is able to pick their favorites out and make your summer parties even better! 






My boys and I had so much fun playing with all the different glasses choices from American Paper Optics. It was a great opportunity to teach them about different things like diffraction and anaglyph. My boys loved all the different designs available. I love that American Paper Optics has every type of paper glasses you could ever imagine.

Hampton Farms Review



We love nuts in our house. So when Hampton Farms sent out this beautiful basket of nuts to our house, my entire family was all over it. I actually had to make sure to hide it until after dinner because I knew as soon as it was pulled out my husband and both my boys were going to be so excited. My boys were all about some in shell peanuts. Hampton Farms makes sure you can taste the flavor of the in shell peanuts. The shells are flavorful as well as the peanut itself. The mess that was made on our kitchen table the first night was well worth how much fun the entire family had sitting around the table giggling and enjoying peanuts. 


I may have actually hid the Honey Maple Peanuts from everyone for a while. I also may or may not have ate half the bag in one secret sitting. They are so delicious. I have had other flavored peanuts in the past from other brands, but nothing is comparable to the flavorful crunchy maple honey flavor with these peanuts. These are perfect alone, but would also make the perfect topping on ice cream. 


My husband thought that he was going to get out of not sharing these Honey Chipotle Cashews. He told them they were spicy, which when I tried they did have a slight kick. Still very enjoyable. My oldest told his father he needed to try one for himself. His reaction was,  "Wow, these are pretty delicious." And that was the end of the entire bag. 


I grabbed this bag of Extra Large, Extra Crunchy peanuts one night while my husband and I were sitting down to watch a movie. They are not so crunchy that you are going to break a tooth, but they do have that extra crunch. They are the perfect salty snack. My husband and I both enjoyed them. 

My husband made sure to claim this bag as his own. He really loves to eat the hot stuff in our house. He let me try one peanut. Yes, one peanut. They definitely have a little heat to them. He loves these nuts. 
The Dill Pickle Peanuts were a whole house favorite. My entire family loves pickles. So finding pickle flavored peanuts, can you really go wrong? We went through this entire bag so quickly. My boys were asking for these for snack and everything. My oldest was sad that he couldn't bring these to school with him. He loves these so much. It doesn't taste like your typical artificially flavored type of pickle flavored product. These peanuts actually taste like they are soaked in pickle juice. They are so delicious. 


My husband loves pepper. So these Sea Salt and Cracked Black Pepper Gourmet Peanuts were perfect for him. He and I tried these together one night, and loved them. Hampton Farms makes sure to keep your peanuts fresh too. And they continue to stay fresh in their perfectly packed containers.

Bakery on Main Review



I have recently discovered how much gluten has effected my body in a negative way. So finding alternative solutions has become top priority for me. Thankfully, I cam across Bakery on Main. Typically when I try gluten free foods, I don't think they taste the best. It is definitely usually an acquired (even if it is forced acquired) taste. Bakery on Main is so much different.






I was sent a fantastic review package to check out from Bakery on Main. My husband was just as excited as I was. We love breakfast foods here, and to find such fantastic flavors from Bakery on Main was great. My husband has been eating the granola for breakfast and snacks. He said it is some of the best granola he has had. He didn't even read the package at first to realize it is gluten free. 

My husband works very long hours. And finding him something he can make for breakfast that isn't terrible for you can be hard. Bakery on Main made it so easy with these oatmeal cups. They are delicious. And my husband loves that he can just leave them in his office at work. It doesn't take long for him to make them up, and he has a nice warm meal. Which is well loved on cold days especially in the winter. 
My boys are pretty particular with what kind of granola bars that they eat. I am not going to lie, when I looked at the boxes I thought for sure that they were going to be the crunchy granola bars. Which are good, but not something that my boys will eat. but of course when you tell my oldest that there is peanut butter and jelly involved. He is there. My entire family thought that these were delicious. My personal favorite was the Oat's and Honey. You could taste the honey actually drizzled on the bar. 
Cream of wheat was one of my favorite breakfast foods growing up. But as I have gotten older it has not agreed with my stomach as much anymore. So finding an alternative made with quinoa was fabulous. The same flavor is still there. And apple pie oatmeal, strawberry shortcake oatmeal? Who even knew something this great existed. With how quickly you can make this up, it is nice to have around.  

Bunches of Crunches is perfect for just a snack alone. I love it personally in yogurts. My husband has been eating it with cereal. The coconut caco is my absolute favorite. Both flavors are delicious though. Even my boys have gotten into this. And with it being gluten free, I know that I am not going to be having tummy troubles after eating it.

Brushless Toothpaste Dental Chews- Chewy.com Review

My corgi is fourteen years old now, and for the past few years her breath has been out of this world bad. As she has aged it has been harder and harder for me to brush her teeth. So I look for alternative ways to help her teeth. 

After plenty of research on Chewy.com I found Ark Naturals Brushless Toothpaste Dental Chews. Now, I have tried these with both of my dogs. I can't even tell you how great of a difference these have made with just one dental chew. And with Chewy.com, you always get very quick shipping. So, you don't even have to wait and wonder when your products are going to get there. 

I also love being able to go through and read the different reviews on Chewy.com before making my decision to buy something. It is so much more convenient then having to wonder when you go to the pet store if a product is going to be good or not.

TravelWise Packing Cube System Review




Traveling can be so hard. Making sure we can pack efficiently, especially after having kids can be a real chore. So when I seen these TravelWise packing cube systems I knew I needed to check them out. Whether it be a weekend trip, and overnight trip, or a month long trip. I always over pack for my family. I always want to make sure I am prepared for whatever could happen.  




My kids just recently went on an over night trip to my moms house. I asked them if they would like to use the new packing cubes. Both were excited. My youngest is in the middle of potty training, so naturally I wanted to make sure he had plenty of extra clothes in case he had an accident. I used the middle sized bag for each of them, and both had extra clothes. There was more then enough room. 

My boys used the larger cubes to each pick some toys to bring to Grandma's house. They were so excited. And the small bags are perfect for all your toiletries you may need. 

These are very durable bags, with breathable mesh. They fold down rather small for easy storage. And are perfect for all traveling situations. They also come in multiple colors so you can get a certain color for each member of your family.

Justin's Review




My family absolutely loves nut butters. Peanut, Almond, Hazelnut it does not matter. If you let my oldest pick what he wanted to eat three times a day it would be some sort of nut butter combination sandwich. So I knew I just had to check out Justin's.

Justin's is made with the highest quality ingredients. And Justin's comes in all different types of nuts. And also comes in multiple combinations. The first thing we tried was the peanut butter. I made my boys each a half sandwich with Justin's Peanut Butter, and half sandwich with the peanut butter they are normally used too. Then I let them be my taste testers. Both of my boys preferred the Justin's sandwich as opposed to what they are used too. I tried it as well. Justin's taste real. It doesn't have any other flavor, but peanuts. There is only two ingredients. Nothing extra, so you know you are getting just what is good for you. 



Chocolate Hazelnut Butter has given me a whole new meaning to life. It is so delicious, and so much better for you then the competition. Made with all natural ingredients you know what you are putting in your body is good. While tasting delicious. I absolutely love that Justin's has these great packets that you can take on the go. These are perfect for a extra protein packed snack in the car. My kids have been grabbing these out of the cupboard and just eating them straight from the squeeze packet. 



My husband's favorite candy is peanut butter cups. And Justin's really are better then the rest. Made with organic chocolate and Justin's delicious peanut butter. My husband was hesitant to try them at first, but once he did these went fast. Between my two boys, and my husband I was thankful to get one package of these. They are delicious. They taste much more real then the competition. So delicious. 



The honey almond butter is perfect on a piece of toast or made into a sandwich. Even by itself. Let's be honest, it is delicious no matter how you get it into your mouth. I actually hid these packets from my family for as long as I could because it was my absolute favorite. 
These dark chocolate mini cups are so delicious as well. There really isn't one thing from Justin's that I didn't absolutely love. I made sure to hide these mini cups from my family. But, they did find them before they were gone. 

My entire family absolutely loves everything from Justin's. Each product you can tell is made with love and care, and it tastes so real. 

If you would like to check out all these great items, and many more from Justin's, please click here.

SnoofyBee Review



Being a mom on the go, I have come to find so many places I go do not have proper areas for changing babies. So I always make sure to bring a changing pad with me. Being a mom of boys, I also know that as soon as I lay them down and go to pull their diaper off no matter what age they immediately go exploring. 





SnoofyBee is perfect for any where diaper changes. This deluxe changing pad is water resistant. It comes with a quarter inch thick pillow attached to it for your little ones comfort. The best part in my opinion, is the sides fold up to block your little one from "helping" you in the clean up process. It also has clips to hang toys. Keeping your little one occupied so you can get the job done faster. Folds up small to make it great for on the go. 





Here is a great video SnoofyBee has to demonstrate how easy the SnoofyBee is to use: 




With all the great designs, there is one to fit any one's liking. To check out SnoofyBee for yourself, please click here

Brownwood Acres Review


I received two products from Brownwood Acres. Before I get into these two amazing products, I would like to give a little background on the company. Brownwood Acres is a company from Michigan area that started in 1945 as a roadside stand, that sold honey and other produce from the families farm. Through the years the company has grown into much more then a roadside stand and offers delicious products.


The first product I tried when I received my package yesterday was the Extra Special Kream Mustard.  Now, being quite the mustard lover, I was excited and skeptical all at the same time. I put mustard on anything I can. I opened the jar up, and just took a little taste from the lid to see what this mustard was all about. With first a hint of sweet, then an after shock of a little bit a spice this mustard has quickly become a new favorite. I had made some noodles last night with our dinner, I definitely put this mustard on plain noodles, because well it is just that good. I made my husband try this on his food when he got home from work. Later on, he made himself an egg sandwich, just to be able to eat some more mustard. I am so excited that with Thanksgiving coming up, I will be able to use this in my deviled eggs. It really can go on everything.


The next item I tried was the Cherry BBQ Sauce. Thankfully, I was already making chicken for dinner last night. What better time to try a new BBQ sauce. I first gave it a small taste test alone to make sure that every one would eat it. My husband is more of a sweet and spicy BBQ sauce guy. My kids prefer just sweet BBQ. This had the perfect balance of sweet kick and BBQ flavor. You could also actually see the cherries in it as well, which I thought was wonderful! I ended up putting it on everyone chicken. My older son, who can be a bit picky when it comes to food ate everything up with no complaints and even asked for more. That really said something to me. My husband tried it when he came home from work, and let me know that we now need to get some ribs, so he can use this on them.



Overall, Brownwood Farms has more then impressed my entire family with each of the products we have tried. I am also so happy because it is Michigan made, using Michigan ingredients. I can not say enough great things about both products. I am so happy that I will be able to order more at the click of a button. If you would like to order both products for yourself, please click here.

Motherlove Review



As a mom who breastfed for years, I am always looking for the best products to use to help those painful nipples from just trying to feed your little one. Motherlove Nipple Cream is all organic, and perfect for you while being safe for your little one. Motherlove Nipple Cream is made with extra virgin olive oil, beeswax, shea butter, marshmallow root, calendula flower. Because of this nipple cream being made with all USDA organic ingredients you do not have to worry about washing it off before your little one goes to nurse again. It helps heal up your nipples quickly so you don't have to be in pain, or be discouraged while you and your little one are working on your breastfeeding journey. 


Motherlove Diaper Balm is perfect for when your little ones get a tough rash. I know with both of my boys,  we would have times with some very rough rashes. I always hated buying the over the counter rash creams. You don't know what is always in them. With Motherlove Diaper Balm, you can easily read right on the jar what the organic ingredients are. The ingredients include: extra virgin olive oil, beeswax, oregon grape root, myrrh gum, yarrow herb, calendula flower. I love that this is 96% certified organic. And you can use this for so much more then just diaper rash. It can also be used as nipple cream, and even helps with dry skin spots and eczema.

Pet Liner Training Collar- Chewy.com Review


Owning a Saint Bermastiff has brought on many more behavioral challenges then I have had with any other breed of dog I have owned. Living on a very busy street I have been working for almost two years to get him to stay in our yard. Yet, from time to time he likes to take off. So after a lot of thought my husband and I decided it was time to find a training collar. 






We have gone to a few pet stores, but nothing has been as easy as Chewy.com to be able to do research on each training collar. We have found exactly what we wanted and needed for our dog while looking through Chewy.com. We could easily thumb through all different reviews of each of the choices on Chewy.com. We figured out that our best bet would be the Pet Liner Training Collar. It has great ratings, and is so easy to use. I love that it is a universal size, so it will grow with my dog as I need it too. Or, I can pass it on to another friend when I am done.
