The Ultimate Green Store Giveaway

I am sure you have realized that both Belinda and I are seeking greener lifestyles for our growing families. One of the ways I was interested in "greening up" was my school supplies. That is why I was so excited to learn that we would get to partner with the Ultimate Green Store for our Back to School event! The Ultimate Green Store is one of the biggest retailers of eco-friendly and organic products. They have a huge selection of back-to-school products (including BPA-free lunchboxes and eco-backpacks) and baby and kids products as well as a wide variety of products for the home (including organic bedding and eco-kitchen products). I have been drooling over their selection of organic baby bedding ever since we found out we are expecting out 4th. I was sent a box of Soybean Blend Crayons. Living up to their name, the package arrived in
eco-friendly packaging. You may be asking...WHY soy crayons? "Unlike most crayons which are made from paraffin wax derived from petroleum, these crayons are made from sustainable U.S. agriculturally grown sources. Unlike paraffin wax crayons, these are completely biodegradeable and are also non-toxic. The colors produced are brighter than conventional crayons. The crayons glide smoother and flake less." I may be a grown-up, but there is still something so special about opening a new box of crayons. My little reviewers choosing which crayon they will use first. Our son's final product! Our 9 year old's creation! So what did my reviewers think? They said... "Mommy there is something different about these crayons, they are much less waxy." "I think these colors seem brighter somehow." "How did you find eco-friendly crayons and what makes them eco-friendly?" "Can we always use these from now on?" "Who gets this box for school or are you going to buy us more of these so we can all have our own?" Bottom line: All three kids give two thumbs way up! Disclosure: The product(s) offered for the giveaway are free of charge, no purchase necessary. Any opinions expressed are my own honest opinions and are not influenced by any form of compensation.

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …

The Children's Place Review and Giveaway

Recently I was lucky enough to be given a chance to review The Children's Place. With summer time in full force here in West Texas getting some new summer time clothing was not only a needed thing but a fun thing to do. We decided to try out The Children's Place online ordering. I had never done this before and with a packed schedule it was very handy! My daughter loved sitting don and being able to pick out an entire outfit for under $25. In fact she was not only able to get an out fit but to additional pairs of shorts! Not only was ordering fast and easy but we received our clothing in 2 days.

She really had so much fun with this and she loves her new flips flops(because the 5 pairs she…

Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler Review and Giveaway

Recently I was given an amazing opportunity to review a new product by Rubbermaid called the Hidden Recycler. As a family who does a lot to help our planet in many ways this was an exciting opportunity. I loved the fact the Rubbermaid not only made a product that would help my family continue their recycling more easily but they reduced packaging to merely a cardboard sleeve that I could in turn recycle. I quickly opened the package like a kid at Christmas and discovered it would not fit my kitchen cabinets :O( we are in the middle of a kitchen remodel and the layout of my old cabinets would not hold the brackets.  So as I sat down to gloat about not being able to use this amazing product, and I notice two holes on the lid and made a massive dash for the directions. Sure enough I can attach it with screws! (Which ironically took me forever to find in our construction materials) I found the perfect place for it in my laundry room and began putting all of Rubbermaid's claims to the …
