Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day!  Did any of you go to a Memorial Day service or parade?  Thank a service man or woman?  I hope today was not just a day off of work and a day to grill out.  I hope you were able to reflect and feel thankful for the men and women who sacrificed all they had!

There are a lot of men in my family who has served in the military.  

My dad's great great great great great grandpa fought in the civil war and his last name is my dad's first name. Pretty neat to think about! 

My grandma's brother was killed in WW1- Wiley Davis.   My dad's uncle, Art, fought in the battle of the Bulge.  My dad was in Vietnam and my cousin his nephew was in the gulf war.   My grandpa on my mom's side was in World War 2 but because he was a German/American he was not trusted and could only be a cook. 

Here is my dad's coat from when he was serving and all the areas he went.  It's holiday's like this that makes me want to do more research on my family history/ancestors.  

I hope you take some time to honor a solider and to listen to their stories.  Please be praying for all service men and women.

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,
