Another Iowa Get-A-Way with the Family

After we had a few bumps in the road in Dubuque with rude customer service at Pizza Ranch and a dirty play area for the kids we made our way to the Quad Cities. 

First we arrived and the weather was much better then Wisconsin and I soon realized I did not pack right.  We headed to the mall and were able to make a huge score!!  My husband found winter jackets for $5 and jeans for $5!  WOOT!  It seems we always find amazing deals when we find a new mall.  :) 

We were in the mall waiting for daddy to come back so we made our own fun photo shoot.  :) 

One resturant we do not have in Wisconsin is Steak n Shake so we made sure to visit it!  I love the activities they hand out to children, it includes the cute hat, and a little car, plus some crayons and coloring page!  WAY TO GO Steak n Shake for being so awesome! I love the Frisco burger and recommend it!  YUM! 

Since the weather was so nice we were able to check out several parks which then made us hungry for ice cream.  I have a new favorite place, Whitey's!  I have never heard of Whitey's before but I am a new fan.  If you ever seen one try the pecan praline in a waffle cone because my mouth is watering just typing it, yes it's that good!

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,
