Summer Blow-Out Sale on Kids Digital Apps!

I love this time of year when school supplies go on sale and we close that wonderful summer chapter and anticipate all the things we’ll learn in the upcoming year!  If your child’s school year includes a lot of time waiting in car pools, sitting outside of ballet class, or waiting for the soccer game to start, you might consider stocking up on some new apps for your kids to keep their little minds and fingers busy!

Starting today, and running through Aug 17th, here are five great apps that are normally priced between $1.99 and $4.99, but are all discounted to $0.99!


These apps involve more than just flipping pages on a screen.  They include games, coloring pages and narrative stories to keep your child learning and engrossed.  I don’t know about you, but when I have to bring the kids to doctors appointments, there is just no way on earth I can keep them from tearing the room apart, unplugging phones, and logging off computers, so a friendly app available in those situations is a must-have.

So check out these five apps that are available!

Yo Gabba Gabba! Music is Awesome!

This app is composed of musical activities where you can make your own music and paint your favorite characters.


Strawberry Shortcake Jumbo Coloring Book

Here you can color 70 different pages of color masterpieces!  The pictures include holidays, princesses, pets, ballerinas, etc.  Perfect!


Strawberry Shortcake Summer Fun

This is a storybook with summer-themed coloring pages, 15+ stickers, and two fruity games!

Woolzies {Review}


I remember a couple summers ago I asked a girlfriend how she got her clothes to smell so fresh. She told me that during the middle of the wash she would poor the softener in. Genius, right? Well, this plan worked out great during the summer when I stayed home all day with my puppy. But now that I am more busy and work a ton, I don’t have time to sit and wait for half way through my wash to poor softener in. So my clothes went back to not having a good smell to it, or they were getting really wrinkly in our dryer because of said busy schedule. Thank goodness for Woolzies Dryer Balls!



Woolzies Dryer Balls sent me a box of their product a few weeks ago to try out. I no longer have to sit and wait half way through my wash to get that softener smell. I even can let me clothes sit in the dryer for a bit and they don’t come out wrinkly. Such a relief I’m telling yah!


Woolzies Dryer Balls will cut your drying time down by 25% and help save you money on not having to go and buy liquid softener or dryer sheets. They last up to 1,000 loads. Yep, 1,000 loads!! I am stoked to not have to go back to softener and just stick with my detergent now… for 1,000 loads! 😉


So, maybe this is may be a little T.M.I. but I thought I should share this little bit of information with my fellow long-thick-hair women 🙂 I shed like crazy! Like you can find my hair anywhere you go in my house. My dryer is pretty good about catching all my hair in the lint drawer, but my poor husband still finds it in his clothes (oops!) Ever since I started using the Woolzies Dryer Balls, I noticed I was seeing a lot less hair in our laundry. The dryer balls were also catching any of the left over hair that the lint container wasn’t. My husband loves that! (He will be sitting there and pull out a string of hair from his under shirt)

I definitely recommend in investing in a box of Woolzies Dryer Balls. I got the box of 6 and am so glad. Our loads are big and need all the they can get. Definitely check out Woolzies website and hop on board!

Dandy Deal on the June 3rd Uprising!



Who wants a Dandy Deal on a fitness program that’s proven to work???

Get It Here!

Revolt Fitness has over 200 bloggers on their program right now and the bloggers are having huge success!  You can read all about it on the Revolt Blog.

With Revolt you get everything that you need to lose weight or just get in shape/toned or both.  Nichole Huntsman has spent years developing the program for just her close friends and now it’s available to the public.  Seriously in just 12 weeks you can get results like these:


Each week you are given different meal plans that you prepare yourself.  The meals are designed to burn fat and build muscle while you are doing the workouts.  Each day there’s a different workout (2 rest days a week) and the majority take less than 20 minutes to complete.  The workouts are done in circuits and designed to incorporate both cardio and weight training to really optimize your body’s fat burning potential.

You can join Revolt at any time, but if you get in at the beginning of the Uprising then you are working on the same schedule with many others who are just starting out.  Revolt has a private online community where you can get the support you need to keep going and working towards your goal.  So getting in on the beginning works in your favor of utilizing that valuable support system.

Rates start at just $10 a month, so that’s far less than your typical gym membership.  Plus, Nichole (a certified personal trainer) is also there to answer questions when you have them and it’s included in your membership.  Most gyms charge a hefty amount for access to your very own personal trainer, but with Revolt it comes FREE!

The next Uprising starts on June 3rd, so sign up today to be ready for Monday.  🙂

Baby it’s…

Still slightly humid outside!  I wish that I could say that it’s cold outside, but in the Midwest that is not true.  However, the cold is just right around the corner (fingers crossed) and I’m ready for it to grace my presence!  🙂    Get ready for the cold around your house with these adorable leg warmers.

With this deal they are only $3!!!  Is it even possible to make them for that less of an amount???  However will the shop make money off of the sales???  Well, it’s no matter and nothing for us to be concerned with.  Just take advantage of the deal and be happy!  🙂  I mean… $3….
