My Thoughts

 Having a good cup of coffee in the morning is always important.  If you're looking for an awesome cup of quality, gourmet coffee for a reasonable price, you should check this amazing gift set from World Vision. . In addition to providing a tasty gourmet blend, this coffee is fair trade. When I tried this coffee, I was completely blown away.  Did you ever open a pack of coffee and you just knew it was going to be excellent because it smelled so fresh and delicious.  I couldn't stop breathing in that amazing scent.  I could tell  by the dark color and texture that it was as fresh as possible and newly roasted. I was able to grind it fresh myself and then I had to stand there and watch it brew, feeling my mouth water as I waited.  And I wasn't disappointed. It was smooth, not bitter at all, and strong without being overpowering.  Literally, one of the best cups of coffee I've ever made at home.

The gift set  arrives in a lovely bag perfect for gift giving and comes complete with a hand carved spoon perfect for scooping. It's a great gift for the coffee lover in your life. Of course, the best part of this gift is knowing that the money that was spent will be going to help underprivileged women and children around the world!




The Giveaway

One lucky winner is going to receive a coffee gift pack of their own. To enter, just fill in the Giveaway Tools form below. This giveaway will end on 11/12/13. Open to the US only. The winner will be notified via email and will have 48 hours to reply. Thanks again to World Vision for offering this fantastic prize.





Holiday Gift Guide - Little Tikes Ultimate Cook Kitchen



My daughter loves to follow me around in the kitchen. She wants to help get things from the refrigerator, and she helps put the clean dishes away. So I knew she was going to love having a kitchen set of her own. When it comes to the larger toy play sets, there is really only one company to turn to. I have been shopping with Little Tikes for years. My older daughter had one of their kitchen sets which I passed down to a cousin. Now that I was ready to get one for Willow, of course I looked there first, and we found exactly what we were looking for in the Ultimate Cook Kitchen.




The "Ultimate Cook Kitchen comes with everything a little girl needs to play house in style. There is a refrigerator, oven, microwave, sink, and even a breakfast nook so they can eat once they are done cooking.   The oven really sizzles which gets my little one excited. It's just the right size for a toddler or pre-schooler. It doesn't take up too much room and it comes with wicker baskets for storage.  Unlike other toy kitchen sets, it also comes with a variety of play food and pots so you won't even have to buy it separately. Some of them are even made from metal, like the cooking utensils,  making them extra lifelike. At only $99.99 its an affordable choice. Willow absolutely loves it.


 In addition to being super fun, assembly was also super easy. It was so simple, my teen daughter put it together for me without any assistance. There are only a few large pieces that need to be screwed into place and some stickers that need to be added onto the correct locations. The whole thing took less than half an hour. The instructions were clear and concise. If we had an electric screw driver, it probably would've only taken about fifteen minutes  tops. A fun toy with minimal assembly time is always a great choice for the holidays!





 Want to see some other items on my family's wishlist? Here are a few of our favorite Little Tikes toys.




To see all the great toys available from Little Tikes, be sure to visit their website or follow their social media. Also look for their items on Amazon!




Rain-X: Getting Kids to School Safely




Whether kids and teens take the bus, ride in a carpool or drive themselves, their safety during the commute to and from school is a primary concern among parents. A new survey from Rain-X® revealed up to 94 percent of parents admit to having anxiety about someone else driving their children to school. The greatest cause for concern (93 percent) comes during times of unpredictable and inclement weather like rain, sleet or snow. 

This is why Rain-X is encouraging drivers to prepare for even the most unexpected weather conditions this school year with products designed to help them stay one step ahead of Mother Nature on the road this school year and beyond.

My Thoughts

 Even with my glasses, I don't have the best eye sight. I have to squint to read the signs in the distance, and I have to use special glasses to be able to drive at all in the dark because of the glare. With so many issues already in my path, I am always looking for products that will help guide my way. One of the things that makes it harder for me to see is the rain. I used to get nervous driving my kids to school on rainy days, especially when it was a heavy dowour. Would I be able to see if a child ran out in front of me? Would I be a be able to stop in time? With Rain-X, I feel like a can rest--and drive--at ease.

Rain-X is a pretty amazing product. Just spray or wipe down your windshield  every now and then, and driving in the rain won't be nearly as intimidating. This is because, when you use Rain-X, instead of leaving behind blurry streaks, the rain beads up, giving you much clearer visibility, even in heavy rainstorms. When I use Rain-X, it makes all the difference for me. I can actually see where I'm going no matter how bad the storm gets, so I know I'm not putting my family or anyone else's at risk.





As colder days creep up on us, snow can be a worrisome factor as well. I live at the shore, and normally we don't get much snow and have mild winters. But last year we saw record snowfall and this winter isn't supposed to be much better. People down here aren't used to driving in snow, and this makes the ride to school a scary event. But Rain-X can help you there too. Their line of heavy-duty windshield wipers can handle any winter storm. They come in many styles for all makes & models of vehicles, are easy to install, and pretty much guarantee higher visibility.

Of course, you still need to use caution and pay attention. Always obey the traffic laws and never drive when you're too tired. If you follow these simple rules, adding Rain-X to your arsenal can only make things better. I know I feel more confident driving in inclement weather when I have Rain-X on my side. I'm sure you will too.

Holiday Gift Guide: Ideas for Mom-to-be!





Give Mom Peace of Mind with Diono:  
Diono's most innovative product to date, the Radian®RXT car seat is designed with your child's security and safety as top priorities. Premium materials and thoughtful safety features like a steel alloy frame, aluminum reinforced side walls, energy absorbing EPS foam, and a five-point harness put your mind at ease as your little one stays safe and sound. Mom won't have to worry anymore about her children's safety - a much needed rest. us.diono.com   

Our Thoughts: 

Diono's RXT Convertible Car seat-- This seat is amazing, in so many ways. I love that you can fit three across most any back seat and not struggle to install each one. An well rounded car seat, you don't need to worry about buying more than one! Only if you enjoy the thought of taking baby in and out via a carrier. I am a huge fan of convertible car seats, and love the ease and comfortably of knowing money was spent well and will last.

If you're curious about how it comes in the box, there is a bit of "put together" that you need to do. Such as installing the base for rear facing, adjusting seat straps, as well as installing the infant padding (head and side panels). This is a bit daunting, to be honest. I struggled with this, only because it wasn't as "easy' as I would have thought. When you pay for quality and ease, I assumed most of these things would have been already done. Now, this isn't necessarily a bad thing either, all the infant padding come off easily so that when you're ready to turn it around and forward face it's done in a jiff. 

The seat itself is super comfortable, and folds flat which is incredible! If you need to switch vehicles or even traveling on a plane, this feature is such a life saver. The downside is that the seat itself is pretty heavy. Diono has made an excellent seat that will last a life time if needed and I am thrilled to have received one for review. And honestly, the fact that this seat is so heavy is a downer for me. So many seats are heavy, and having the ease of switching vehicles quickly would have been such a great perk. 

They allow LATCH system and seat belt for installation. When I tell you that install is a cinch, it really is. You dont' have to fuss around to try to figure out what's going wrong, and when you have children still in seats, the compactness of the RXT makes all of the negatives disappear instantly.
