Welcome to the Neighborhood

WELCOME to the Neighborhood!  

What a blessing it was for one of our new neighbors to stop by with a little welcome basket.  I have moved a few times now and it seems the "friendly neighbor welcome" is something from the past or only seen in movies.  It was a much needed break to talk for a few minutes and eat some cake (not shown in picture)  they also brought.

Have you ever gotten a welcome from a new neighbor when you move?  
Have you ever given a gift to a new neighbor?  

I personally cant recall a time that I have gone to a new neighbor to introduce myself but I do remember inviting over a new neighbor for dinner and to this day we are great friends!  I really want to work on making sure to take a few minutes to be kind, introduce myself and my family, and bless them with a meal or plant or anything really.  

  We actually had just met them a few weeks ago as they had just started coming to our church and then what do you know we move very close to them.  HOW COOL!  :)  Always nice to know a new neighbor. 

I am very excited to meet more of my new neighbors.  :)  I have seen several people walking by with their dogs, so many dogs in this neighborhood.  It will be an exciting day when we get to add a dog into the mix.  :) :) 

Another neat thing to note about our neighborhood is they have block meetings at the local school every month.  There was a flyer at our door inviting us to the next meeting on Monday.  The flyer mentioned they have the following people give reports:  Principle, Police Officer, President of the block group, and a random neighbor.  It said they will discuss yard clean up, new protocols, safety, and a few other things.  I have never seen a group like this in the past so I am very curious to see how it is run and what exactly is discussed.  

Has anyone ever been to a community/block group like the one mentioned above?  

We are also so thankful for our wonderful friends who blessed us this weekend.  We had 5 friends help us load/unload the Uhaul, 2 friends help us scrub the apartment clean (it looked brand new), and 4 friends babysit the kids for us.   I must fill out some thank you cards and get some chocolate or something.  :) 

Well, that is all for now, we still have a lot more unpacking to do.  :)  

Hope your weekend was wonderful!

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
