Sahara is PLANNING her 8th Birthday Party

She is so much more organized than I am! She wants to have a Hello Kitty Party~ awww I love Hello Kitty!  This will be so much fun.  She hasn't really ever had a real birthday party with friends so this is a big step for her.  She even gave up an iPod to have this party.  We told her we were unable to buy her the big presents she wants ( Friends Lego House and iPod) and have a party so she had to figure it out.  She came to us later and said okay 1 present and a Party! 

Now time to PLAN!  I was going through Pinterest for party ideas.  I already have someone doing Hello Kitty Cake Pops~ https://www.facebook.com/TotalPackageEvents - a sister duo who is super talented in party stuff.   So I can check that off my list.  

I can do these: 

Now maybe I can pull something like this off (haha):

This is hecka cute but might be too young for her

I just asked Daddy if he would be willing to make a Hello Kitty Birthday Banner (airbrushed) and he said OF COURSE!  Check that off the list- picture opportunity!

I will need to find PARTY SUPPLIES:

This is just the first stage of PLANNING so you will see more!  All pictures (except Sahara's Plan) is from Pinterest- you should be able to click on picture.

Review: Kraft MilkBite Milk and Granola Bars

We were contacted to TRY this product and I'm so happy they reached out to us because what an awesome product.  My kids really enjoyed having this as their snack when they got home from school.  They were able to take it outside with them, instead of having to sit at the table.  They both said they like the flavors and the taste.  I was impressed because they don't always like HEALTHY snacks!  My son like the chocolate and my daughter LOVED the Strawberry flavor. The request to get more is already on the grocery list.  The bars need to be refrigerated so I didn't send them in their lunches but after looking at the Facebook page- you can freeze them and by lunch they would be thawed!  What a great idea!  What I like the best is my kids loved them and it FILLED them up!  Sometimes I have to give them kids 3-4 different snacks for them to get full- the Milk Bites granola bars worked! 

If you want to know more KRAFT MILKBITE Milk Granola Bars then visit their Facebook Page.

You can find KRAFT MILKBITE Milk Granola Bars in the refrigerated dairy aisle at your local store.  Their suggested retail price is $3.49.

From Kraft~KRAFT MILKBITE Bars are a new, unique innovation in snacking made with real milk and calcium to provide the same calcium as an 8 oz glass of milk.  A wholesome alternative to existing bars, KRAFT MilkBite Bars are adeliciously different snacking experience the entire family can enjoy!

Found in the refrigerated dairy aisle, each KRAFT MILKBITE Milk & Granola Bar combines real milk with whole grain granola and other tasty and nutritious ingredients like fruit or roasted nuts, while offering 30% of your daily recommended value of calcium.

Shoplet.com Duck Tape Review

When I got the package in the mail from Shoplet.com to do a REVIEW on Duck Tape/Packaging Tape I was like WOW what the heck am I going to do with the tape. Oh boy, there is 101 things I can use duck tape for and didn't even think about!

With the Duck EZ Start Premium Packaging Tape I fixed a book cover for my daughter, I fixed a poster for my son (that my daughter ripped off the wall) and I taped up boxes that was put in storage.

With the Zebra Printed Duck Tape I fixed my broom handle and now I have a COOL Broom!

My hubby had to send off a box the other day and the excited in his eyes when I pulled out the Duck EZ Premium Packaging Tape with Dispenser was priceless. He hates the Post Office so anything to help speed up the process is a dream for him. He really liked how easy it was to use the tape. You can use it perfectly with just one hand and it doesn't look like a 5 yr old did it! I've seen him tape up boxes before and I always giggle because it looks like a mess but this box didn't. He has to ship boxes out every couple weeks so he is super happy we have this tape at home now. Also when he found out I had other tape he took one downstairs and repaired some of his airbrush stuff.

Every household should have  Duck EZ Start Premium Packaging Tape and and I highly recommend the Zebra Printed Duck Tape because it makes everything look cool and of course it's durable.

For other OFFICE SUPPLIES you should try Shoplet.com- (from their website) have discount Office SuppliesComputer Hardware and PeripheralsOffice FurnitureInk and Toner SuppliesCleaning and Maintenance Equipment, and Paper.

Iris and the Dragonflies - Review and Giveaway - MomGoesWild

is in love with this book & she thinks you will be too!!

Am I back to reality yet? Whoa!!...Stephanie! Wake up!!

For a week now, I was instantly brought back to my childhood and I felt like I was the main character, in this book, Iris and the Dragonflies, written by Rosemary Danielis. I felt like I was that 11 year old girl again, back home, on a tiny island in Qu├ębec. I could see me, being Iris, sneaking down to the brook to play, and it's so ironic that our brooks were covered with a sea of the flowers, called Iris'.

When I started reading this book, my children were visiting my parents, on that very same island, where everything is so magical, serene, and where freedom is the attraction. Knowing my 9 year old son would love this book, and to hopefully open up his imagination while he was there, I asked him to read it as well. It was such an awesome opportunity for my son and I to connect, and relive the magical experience of Iris and my childhood, together. I have so many different connections with this book.

I really don't want to reveal too much about this book, because I have already demanded that my book buddies read this astonishing masterpiece. Although, I'm not sure if any of them will be able to connect to this book as much as I have.

It's a magical story of Iris, who is connected with her Dragonfly friends but doesn't know why. She later learns that she has special connections with not only her closest human friends, but as well with the Earth. It's one of those books that I couldn't just put away and forget about for a few days. I had to read it every lunch hour, and every night at bed time. This book covers all the important aspects of life - family, friendship, loyalty, history and imagination.

That's it! I'm not spilling another word!!! I don't want to ruin it for you.

Rosemary has such a talent with words. It was so well written and very easy to understand and feel. There were times when I couldn't help but wonder if it was written for me, as some sort of sign. I related to the setting, the main character, and most interesting of all, I relate to what Iris, the Dragon Seer, was born to protect, Her, Mother Earth.

As strange as this may sound, I almost felt like my childhood came to a halt when the book ended. I really hope that Rosemary Danielis doesn't keep my inner child locked up for too long! :)

Please visit the website for Iris and the Dragonflies and check out the Facebook fan page to learn more.

How would you like to go back to your childhood for a few hours a day and see the world through Iris's eyes? Enter below, for your chance to win, one of 5 Kindle versions and one AUTOGRAPHED paperback of Iris and the Dragonflies. That's right! 6 winners!!!

The Quick and Easy Guide to Branding Your Business and Creating Massive Sales with Pinterest- Review and Giveaway

Product Description:
Pinterest, though rhyming with interest, is only loosely related! Basically, it’s a virtual pinboard just like the corkboards we had in our rooms as kids and you may still have in your home or office. Pinterest is a social networking site that allows users to create photo collections online – like online, upscale scrapbooking. It is primarily a photo sharing website where the members are allowed to create albums pertaining to a certain theme or pattern.

Over a very short period of time, Pinterest has become one of the leading social media networks. Fairly recently, given that it launched in early 2010, the site has grown in leaps and bounds and is viewed as a strong competitor to the older social media networking websites. At present, the website attracts over 11 million visits each week, placing it among the top 10 social networks.

Over the past few years, businesses have been using social media websites for promoting and boosting their businesses. The same is the case with Pinterest. You might be wondering how a photo sharing website can help your business become a success.

This book is intended to be a guide for using Pinterest to strengthen your business and brand.

My Review: 

I received so much information from this eBook that I decided to put my hubby's airbrush business on Pinterest!  One more thing to add to my long To Do List but I think it needs to happen soon.  I also got some tips for my personal Pinterest page~ http://pinterest.com/pamallen68/.  I didn't know that Pinterest uses the #hashtag like Twitter so I need to start doing that for sure.  Also learned how to arrange my Boards so my followers can get the best out of my pins. I highly recommend this eBook plus Kim Garst website is also filled with all kinds of Social Media information that I can stay there for hours reading- I love social media so I find all that info interesting and useful.  I can't tell you all the wonderful info in this eBook so why don't you try to WIN one or go to The Quick and Easy Guide to Branding Your Business and Creating Massive Sales with Pinterest and buy it for under $5! Every pinner should get this book :

Waitress Rant~ Respect Other Customers Please!

Sometimes we have some funny stuff happen in the cafe that just makes me wonder about people.  Last weekend we had this guy sit down and his back was pretty much towards the 80% of the cafe and guess what he had plumbers crack BIG TIME.  EWWWW I know but I couldn't bring myself to tell him to cover his ASS.  I could tell several customers were laughing and others were ready to gag so I went to the owners son and asked him to say something to the dude.  He said no problem and went over to let plumber crack man know about the show he was giving to the other customers and they guy told him "so what"...huh?  Really you don't care that you are offending people with your hairy butt?  The owners son of course didn't like his comment or attitude so asked him if he could place a coat on the chair and the guy said fine but within 10 minutes put the coat back on.  At this point I knew he was just doing it to get a reaction and wasn't respecting others.  I went and put my coat on his chair, smiled and walked away.  He was fine the rest of the time and then when he left he lit up a cigarette right outside the front door and irritated more customers.  I was in the WTF mode with him at this time and walked outside and asked him to walk down a ways so the smoke didn't come into the cafe.  He was irritated but at this point I was more concerned about the other customers and their experience at the cafe then his!

I try my hardest to be the best waitress and I've been told I am but I'm not tooting my own horn.  Anyhoo, sometimes its just plain hard to please people.  You know there is people out there that no matter what you do you just can't make happy.  I try my best and that's all I can do.  Then we have the best customers EVER and you wish they would come in everyday just to make this job so much better.  Overall at the cafe I work our customers ROCK and they are the reason I do what I do with a smile on my face.

Slap Koozies Review- Fun Product!

I received this cool product to review in the mail last week and I had to put my name on it FAST because I saw the vultures (kids and hubby) eyeing and wanting it!  I use it everyday now- probably don't need to but hey its FUN!

I use it for my coffee cup, water bottle, and other drinks that I want the kids to LEAVE ALONE- I say  "See it says MOM so it's not yours"  I'm sure Slap Koozies  didn't design this product so I could keep my family away from my beverages but that is how I'm using it!  My kids LOVE to drink from my cups all the time, not sure why- maybe just to mess with me!  Plus when I had a iced coffee drink the other day I put it on and my hands didn't get cold when I drank it.  

I also see how this would be a great way to brand a product.  If I had a company I would buy these for my employees with the company's logo on it! You can buy in bulk and customize the slap koozies

From Slap Koozies website

The SlapKooler™ band is a banded 'slap koozie' beverage insulator that you can 'slap' on your can, bottle, arm, leg, friends, or people you just meet. Many people call it a 'slap koozie' or a 'slap wrap', but we call the SlapKoolerTM the next generation of awesome. Dual metal recoiling bands slap the neoprene koozie insulator around your can or bottle, just as it's appeal wraps itself around your heart!

Fun Ways To Use Your SlapKoolerTM:

  • Keeping your beverage cold and your hands warm.
  • Wristbands!
  • A way to reminisce about the 80's
  • Promoting your brand
  • Promoting your product or company
  • Dress up your beverage and start a unique conversation
  • Ankle warmers!

I've Been Banned From Using the Word "Play Date"

My 10 yr old son last night informed me NOT to call his "hanging out with his friends" PLAY DATES anymore. Oh... my bad!  Yesterday, I asked a dad if we could get our kids together for a play date and my son kicked me.  I thought at first he didn't want me asking but then the look on his face made me think...WTH did I say wrong! So when we got back home he informed me how embarrassing I was asking for a "playdate".  Hold on Buddy...I've been using PLAY DATE for years now and didn't realize play date sounded so babyish to you until now.  I asked him what he would rather have me say and "hanging with his friends" was the response I got.  Hmmmm... so I guess next time I will say "Mr. K can our boys HANG OUT soon"   Just wait my son,  I'm sure there are going to be far more times I embarrass you and I will do it with a smile on my face just like my parents did!

Review: Eraselet- Bracelet Eraser

REVIEW: I have to say what a cute product. Erasers are always being lost at our house- not even sure where they go but hey these Eraselets have worked wonders all week.  I even caught my 10 yr old using one the other night when he told me earlier those are too babyish for him.  I showed my daughter to turn it inside out and use a finger to help erase, it took her a couple times but now she is PRO!   She wore a couple the other to school and when she came home she didn't have any on, she gave them out.  I recommend Eraselet Braclet Eraser!

Want to WIN your own Eraselets:  ENTER HERE

PRODUCT INFO: The Eraselet® was designed for porous paper such as notebook paper, elementary lined paper, construction paper, low-end copy paper, newspaper; paper that kids use everyday in schools across America!  The Eraselet® is not recommended for laser copy paper, glossy paper or paper that has a film on it.  The most common way to use the Eraselet is to simply stretch it to the tip of your thumb or index finger and erase- use it inside out though so the outside stays clean :)

REVIEW- Ouidad Climate Control Frizz & Flyaway Fighter

I received a sample of Climate Control Frizz and Flyaway Fighter and  Climate Control Shampoo and Conditioner.  I have to say I really love this product.  I used it for both my hair and Lil Mama's hair.  If you have Curly Hair please try Ouidad products I know you won't be disappointed.  

My hair is so long and thick  right now that I get mad everyday trying to style it so its usually in a rubber band on top of my head.   The past 3 days (since using these products) my hair hangs so nice and NOT FRIZZY!  Yesterday,  I went to the grocery store and 4 people came up and told me  "What beautiful hair you have"  one lady even touched it and said she always wished for hair like mine.  My hubby even noticed the NO FRIZZ and asked what I did different.  Sorry to say I'm not going to post pics because I don't like having my picture taken with my double chins, LOL!   With the compliments I've received I'm going to tell you that it works just wonderfully on my thick wavy long hair! 

Now my daughter's hair is a big thorn in my butt because everyday it starts dreading up no matter what, so its usually in pony tails or braids.  I love her hair down but it takes a lot of work and within a couple hours its all dreaded and frizzy again.  Yesterday,  I washed her hair with the Climate Control Shampoo & Conditioner then combed through it with no fight!  When I was done I sprayed the Control Frizz and Flyaway fighter and BAM this is what she looked like!  We all loved her hair!  All night I was saying "Oh I love your hair".  When she got up this morning I just had to spray some water and the Frizz control on it and she was ready to go!  That hasn't happen all school year!  

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Review: Perfect Energy- New Chapter Organics

Last week I received a 5 day supply of PERFECT ENERGY and PERFECT CALM.  I decided to do "1" each week so last week I did Perfect Energy and I loved it.  In the past I've taken energy "vitamins" and felt jumpy and jittery all day but Perfect Energy didn't do that so THANK YOU New Chapter Organics.  

I took one 3 times a day (morning, afternoon and evening) and I was very productive through out the whole day.  My house was clean everyday and I'm not saying that it gave me energy to SPRING CLEAN (lol) no but I kept up on everything everyday with little effort.  Usually, I pick 1 or 2 days that I do housework but last week I did something everyday and wow that felt good.  What felt the best is I wasn't wanting to sleep after I got off work or just veg out in front of the TV. Also as some of vitamins that I have taken in the past I had a hard time falling asleep at night, not this time. 

 I was very productive last week and I have Perfect Energy to thank for that!  This week I will be testing the Perfect Calm

Product Info:  A complete multi-vitamin, Perfect Energy contains a combination of 23 whole-food vitamins and minerals formulated to promote optimal health while targeting the nutrients your body needs to sustain energy production, like whole-food complexed Vitamins B, C, E, and Selenium.* Yet another unique feature of Perfect Energy is the Vital Rhythms blend of flower essences which encourages mental focus, fortitude, and perseverance during times of stress.

Next Monday I will post my review on the Perfect Calm.  I will need it this week for sure~ I have a Book Fair I need to get ready for, finish off the Read-a-Thon this Friday, PTA Meeting on Thursday, plus all the other 100 projects I have going.

I did receive a 5 day Free Trial of the Perfect Energy and Perfect Calm and my view on this product are my very own.  I will not endorse a product that I haven't tried myself.
