Chicken Soup for the Soul: O Canada: The Wonders of Winter Review

I received this product for the purpose of this review. All opinions states are my own and may differ from yours.
Chicken Soup for the Soul: O Canada: The Wonders of Winter
There are two Chicken Soup for the Soul: O Canada books. This review is of their second one, subtitled The Wonders of Winter, that just came out in November. I never read the first that came out in 2011. I've been reading this one waiting for a snowstorm that is supposed to deliver at least a foot of snow. I thought it might put me in more of a happier mood with the imminent weather coming later in the week. Now where did I put that shovel...

Sponsored by: Ideal Uniform

In our American culture, khakis and polos have become the everyday uniform for life’s everyday events like community outings such as a play or recital, and family events like holiday gatherings or eating out, as well as Sunday School and church. Especially for the little boys, they are the most appropriate attire for all "dress up", but short of formal, events. Girls and young ladies have more fashion choices to weave into everyday wardrobes. Even still, chinos paired with a polos or blouse make a smart choice for many similar life outings. Today more and more schools across the US are requiring students to adopt a standard dress code defining appropriate attire for school. And although options vary from school to school, khakis and polos typically are the foundation for any dress code. And even if your child's school doesn't require a uniform dress code, having a smart outfit in the wardrobe is handy for have on hand for everyday life events.

NERF: The Ultimate Blaster Book Review

I received this product for the purpose of this review. All opinions states are my own and may differ from yours.
The Ultimate Nerf Blaster Book Cover
Frequently, when I do a book review, I'm the one requesting the book because I think it would be interesting. Recently, this book showed up in my mailbox, totally unsolicited, without even a note from the publisher (powerHouse) saying they were offering it for review.. 

At the office I work in, we have a bunch of Nerf guns. In fact, my favorite weapon is front and center on the cover. So I really like the book's subject, Nerf guns. In fact, it offers the supposed history and timeline of ALL Nerf guns.

The LEGO Adventure Book Vol. 2 Review and Giveaway

I received this product for the purpose of this review. All opinions states are my own and may differ from yours.
Just over a year ago, one of the first reviews I did on here was for the first volume of The LEGO Adventure Book. That book covered Cars, Castles, Dinosaurs, and more. This time around, volume 2 covers Spaceships, Pirates, Dragons, and more. Technically, it doesn't say Volume 2 on the cover, but the publisher (and sponsor of the giveaway), No Starch Press, calls it that on the book's homepage.

Holiday Cleaning Tip and Swiffer Steamboost Review

This holiday cleaning tips post is brought to you by Swiffer® as part of a Type-A Parent Community Sponsored Post. 
Swiffer Bissell SteamBoost
We're a big fan of Swiffer in this household. We also have a Bissell PowerSteamer that we picked up for a steal a couple Black Fridays ago. Each product has its purpose, but what would happen if you were to combine the two? That is basically what they did when they created the Steamboost. It is basically a Swiffer WetJet with an added steaming element.

Lawson's Sheepskins $100 GC Giveaway!
Sponsored By: Lawson's Sheepskins

The Lawson Farm was born in 1980 where Pat and Laura Lawson along with their daughter, Suzanne had 88 acres of open land in Culpeper, VA with a house and a small barn as well. The Lawson's spent 2 years fencing and cross fencing with electrified wire to create 10 paddocks on 45 acres to rotational graze sheep. Freeze proof waterers and sheds were also constructed in each paddock. Along with orchard grass and red clover planting for grazing. The additional 35 acres were planted in alfalfa, which is then cut for winter hay.
The Lawson's began making apparel from sheepskin and selling them to friends and at local craft shows in 1984. This business grew rapidly and today Lawson Sheepskins are sold at major arts and craft shoes, through mail orders as well as on their website Lawson's Sheepskins

10 Days of Christmas Giveaways

The other night we had 10 giveaways start as part of a "10 Days of Christmas" giveaway event. They all end at the end of the year. If you missed them, they are all listed below. This was the only way you'd ever find a giveaway for a maternity bra here, as part of a multi-product / group giveaway.

Would Your Holidays be Different

Christmas brings us a guest post from Jane Schwartzberg, author of the book naked jane bares all. We wish her well and hope you find her story inspiring. If we only all had her strength.
Naked Jane Bears All

Would Your Holidays be Different
If You Knew You Had a Terminal Illness?

Woman Living with Incurable Cancer Offers 3 Ways to Get
the Most Out of Every Day

Jane Schwartzberg cringes when she hears someone say that a terrible accident or frightening medical diagnosis made them realize what’s important in life.

“In some ways, I do wish everyone could experience a taste of terminal, if that’s what it takes to make them appreciate the intangible gifts we receive not just during the holidays, but all year,” says Schwartzberg, co-author with Marcy Tolkoff Levy of “Naked Jane Bares All,”, a new book that shares Jane’s story with candor and humor.

“But I wish they’d known all along, and I hate the thought of goodness coming at the expense of so much suffering.”

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas all.

Thanks for being a fan.

Chicken Soup for the Soul: It's Christmas Book Review

I received this product for the purpose of this review. All opinions states are my own and may differ from yours.
Chicken Soup for the Soul: It's Christmas
Are you a fan of the Chicken Soup for the Soul books? I recently received their It's Christmas book for review. All their books can almost get the same review. It is full of 101 feel good stories, with a theme. This time Christmas. How many, though, can say they start with a letter from Santa himself. It mentions how the book "keeps the magic alive for everyone."

Getting Paid to Tweet

Are you a blogger? I've been a member of Sponsored Tweets for some time now and every now and again they have opportunities for you to tweet and get paid. Sometimes you are paid just for the tweet. Other times you are paid per click. You won't get rich from it, but as your Twitter Follower count goes up, be sure to update the suggested payment amount. For my first paid tweet, I was paid $3.50 to give you an idea of payment. It has gone up since, but still not that much.

Sammy the Centipede Goes to Market Book Review

I received this product for the purpose of this review. All opinions states are my own and may differ from yours.
Sammy the Centipede Goes to Market
I'm always on the lookout for books that encourage my son's good eating habits. The fact that I found one from author Maria Luchsinger that my son can actually read himself is great. He's six and is a fan of broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots. Yes, he probably eats a better selection of veggies than his mom.

With Sammy the Centipede Goes to Market, we have a book that encourages kids to eat the rainbow, striving for at least five fruits and veggies a day. It does a great job with the help of very colorful illustrations from Joe Palmisano.

Solid Cordz Extension Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
Solid Cordz
Do your power strips sit half empty because of oversized AC adapters? I recently ran across a product that will help solve this problem, without having to buy a new/second power strip. They're called Solid Cordz and offer a 1 foot extension that allow you to plug the big bulky power connector to the Cordz, then plug the other end of the Solid Cordz to the power strip.
