Thankful and Blessed

Thanksgiving is coming fast!!!!   I am not ready but with Oriental Trading I am getting closer.  I got these adorable "Be Thankful" "Be Joyful" and "Give Thanks" pumpkins that add a fall touch to my living room as they are on the top of the piano.  I really love the messages on them as they bring out the true meaning of the Holiday.   Thanksgiving and truly focussing on all our blessings will bring more joy! 

We also are decorating Royal Tea with these bigger white "Harvest, Fall, and Family" pumpkins.  They have gold writing and they pop in the store!  The trio adds a fun touch inside the new shop.  The new tea shop really needed that extra touch as fall weather is here and helping people get in the mood for a hot cup of tea. 

Finally, my kids took turns coloring this placemat.  We got plenty of them to use at our Community Thanksgiving meal.  We have been doing one for 5 years now.  We try to help anyone who can't get to family, elderly, military, or college students.  We want to make sure they have a nice homecooked Thanksgiving meal. I think the kids will love coloring these in a couple weeks.   I love that there are so many fun craft ideas on Oriental Trading.  You can go simple with a placemat or look for more project ideas that will fit your needs.   

My living room wall is also looking fantastic with this fall decor with a message perfect for Thanksgiving! The light blue color in the letters goes perfectly in my living room! 

Thank you Oriental Trading for sending me these items in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions expressed are 100% my own.  I was not paid for this review.

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,
