Adorable BRIO Toys Perfect For Any Occasion!

Posted by on Apr 17, 2017

I remember as a young girl asking my mom for a puppy for my birthday. And, well every holiday. Because what little kid doesn’t want her own puppy, right? Now as a mom with a daughter I can see the days of the puppy headed my way. While our family is not quite ready to jump down that rabbit for a third time (losing our other dogs was pure heartache). Enter these adorable BRIO toys.

The BRIO Large Dachsund is perfect for the dog lover in your life.  And, basically for all the kids in your life. My 3, 8, and 10 year old all absolutely love it. My only problem? We only own one. So there is a bit of fighting over who’s turn it is.

The BRIO Light & Sound Firetruck is perfect for your little preschooler. It’s super easy to use and little hands can navigate everything by themselves. It comes with the train, wagon, and driver with moveable arms and legs. This little truck will entertain your preschooler for hours. And the only sound you are likely to hear? Giggles and Squeals!

And for the toddler in your life? Yep. There is something for them too of course! The BRIO My First Bring Along Railway Set will take you back to your childhood while still entertaining your own children. I absolutely ADORE this little set and it is now my new favorite baby shower gift.

And for the bigger kids? Of course there are options for them as well! The Krazy Wordz game from Ravensburger was a HUGE hit with my older boys. And not only them, but the adults as well. We had so much fun playing it and my kids are begging me for another game night so they can pull it out again.

Gemmies Crystal Creations – Create Something Amazing!

Posted by on Jan 31, 2017

I grew up with a gaggle of boys (and when I say gaggle, I mean gaggle. 5 to be exact). So girly toys were short lived in my house. Fast forward to my adulthood and here I am raising girls. And can I just tell you? I LOVE IT. It is ALL about the bling in our house. We simply cannot be without our polished toes and fingernails, accessories are a must and if we can find a way to give our outfit some pizazz? WE DO IT!

Gemmies are the next evolution of the popular 3D beading craft. Following a simple process, kids clip Gemmies crystals to elastic rings then join completed rings to create a 3D sparkling creation! Design templates are intuitive and use a repetitive pattern that lets kids develop their cognitive abilities and progress to designing their own creations.

You can make anything out of Gemmies crystals. starting series include animals, flowers and more! Store all your Gemmies crystals and accessories in the Gemmies Design Studio and display your favorite creation on the light up pedestal.

It is so quick and easy, you could literally create a one of a kind piece of art while getting ready to walk out the door, or even on your way to any event! By simply clipping and connection Gemmies together, you have instantly make a “uniquely you” work of art! My 10-year-old daughter literally made a birthday gift topper for one of her little friends as yes, she informed me, even the present was missing some “sparkle”. All it takes is three easy peasy steps; CLICK, CONNECT, CREATE.

I love that my two girls with their two very differing personalities can create something so “them” and let their imaginations soar. At the moment, my 10-year-old is very much into accessorizing, so we see a lot of rings, glasses and such. My 8-year-old is all about the animals, so her creations involve a Crystal Compound of different designs. Each with their own style, they display it with GEMMIES! So get your groove on and get ready for that bling! Grab your GEMMIES and create something amazing!

Reading: I Can’t Survive Without It – Plus, Kindle Book Deals

Posted by on Jan 19, 2017
I LOVE to read!! I read every day. I absolutely adore books. They can take you to a whole new world. They can expand your horizons, raise your hopes, or feed your fears. They can make you laugh or cry or both. Sometimes in the same paragraph. There is nothing better than a “can’t put it down, stay up way too late” good book.
My all time favorite author is Orson Scott Card. I own most of his books and love reading them. He is a fantastic writer. His imagination is amazing. My favorite book by him is Enchantment. It’s a retelling of Sleeping Beauty. So good! I’ve read it lots of times and I’m sure I will read it many more. But, while Orson Scott Card is my favorite author my favorite book of all time is The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley.
 the blue sword
I remember that my very favorite book as a child was Harry and the Terrible Whatzit. I had to buy a copy when I had kids because no one could find my old one. That’s the only specific book I can remember from being young, but I’m sure there were lots. I’ve always loved reading.
As a youth I loved mystery novels. I read a lot of R.L. Stine books.
Now I love everything. My favorite type of books are Science Fiction and Fantasy. But I love most everything! I also have a bit of an obsession with Vampire books. I’ve read a LOT of them! Some of them are good, while some are not. I’m open to reading pretty much anything other than horror. I find that the older I get the more of a wuss I am. I have also really been loving mysteries lately. The Girl on the Train was amazing.
I’d love to hear your favorite book so I can add it to my list of things to read!
And make sure to check out the Kindle book Deals going on now! I absolutely love the free and cheap books from Amazon. Download them and read them when you have time. If they suck, who cares? Plus, there are a lot of good ones out there. You might just find your next favorite series or author.
