Are you looking for a Baby Shower Gift?

61lokwm4fl-_sy498_bo1204203200_Oh Baby Baby! I was just shopping for a baby shower gift and there is so much to choose from! I love getting cute little clothes and there’s always a need for diapers and such, but my favorite gift to give is a cute little book for mama or daddy to read to the baby. Babies love to be read to, they find their parent’s voice to be soothing to them and it’s never too early to read to baby. In fact, I read to my babies when they were still in the womb!

I was given this adorable baby book to review and just wanted to tell you all that it makes the cutest baby shower gift! It is now my go to gift for all new mommies!

“A sweet, colorful board book that appeals to a baby’s interest in looking at other babies
Babies enjoy books, looking at other babies, and their own flowering abilities. This short rhyming poem combines all three in a sweet and happy way, while introducing babies to God’s love for them. The simple words are paired with colorful images of babies engaging in familiar activities, allowing the book to be used as an introductory concept book as well. And it ends with a reminder that Baby is always loved by God.”

It is perfect for newborns to be read to and little ones to thumb through themselves. There’s even a cute little “mirror” (Not a real one but one of those little paper ones) for baby to see him or herself in! It is just too cute for words. It makes a great bedtime story and soon will be a favorite. You can buy it on Amazon by going here.

“Disclosure (in accordance with the FTC’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising”): Many thanks to Propeller Consulting, LLC a copy of this book. I did receive a sample of the product in exchange for this review and post.

Health and Wellness Tips

My husband and I have been exploring ways to improve our general health. He is in his mid 50’s and I’m in my mid 40’s and we are starting to feel the aches and pains that come along with being over 40. He just had a total knee replacement and that was brutal! Trust me, total knee replacements are no fun, but the end result is so worth it. He is more mobile than I am now! We have always been physically active, despite our ailments, but sometimes needed a little extra help with our health and wellness journey. I’ve teamed up with Vive Health to showcase two great products that you may not be familiar with.

While preparing for his knee replacement, my husband wanted to work on his core strength. His doctor suggested a balance board, but my husband found this Balance Disc at Vive Health. It is such a cool balance disc because YOU control how much air you put in it, so you control how difficult it is to balance on it. It is anywhere from really easy to super hard. You can start out by just standing on it to eventually doing exercises on it. It really helps your balance and improves your core strength! It was a great help for my husband prior to his knee surgery!

This balance disc came with a little plastic pump that was super easy to use.


Around the time of my husband’s knee surgery, I’ve been experiencing incredible shoulder discomfort. I’ve been doing heat and ice along with decreased activity to try to heal whatever is aggravated. Vive Health was kind enough to send along a Rotator Cuff Brace for me to try. This wonderful brace provides stability for a weak rotator cuff and really helps to eliminate discomfort.


I was given the products free from Vive Health to test and review for you. My experiences and opinions are my own.

Perfect for First Aid Kit or Hiking!

imageI had the opportunity to try out this awesome primitive emergency tent. It’s basically a space blanket and paracord with tie downs, but when it comes to you and bad weather, this will keep you protected! It’s good to keep in your car and take with you hiking. It takes up no space and weighs virtually nothing. I got mine free to review for you and we love the added security it brings. You can buy one on Amazon if you want one of your own.

Teabook brings you the gift of rare, high-end teas that you will love in this variety tea box gift set.


Teas includes:

GREEN:Green Bud green tea from Changde, Hunan, China. This green tea is a mild, savory, buttery winter treat. This beautiful twisted and rolled leaf slightly opens in the first steep releasing aromatic hints of fresh vegetables and spearmint.

We call this tea Sunset Red reflecting both its color and warming flavor. It is robust, sweet and fresh. The aromas and flavors dance between soft buttery caramels and milk chocolate! A smooth and tasty treat any time of day. The finish is floral and lingers a bit on the tongue.

I got my set free to review.

Time to Rethink Your Sports Drink

I am so excited that Hope’s rugby season is right around the corner. Even though she has mild cerebral palsy, she’s always been active in sports. Her favorites are running, dance and rugby. She never lets anything slow her down!


At nine, it’s hard to impress upon her, the importance of drinking to keep hydrated. She drinks because she’s thirsty. Her drink of choice is water, and while I usually am thankful for that, when she is running a 5k, or practicing in the hot sun, I prefer she have a sports drink with electrolytes.


BODYARMOR is a natural sports drink with more potassium packed electrolytes, coconut water and vitamins. It is low in sodium and contains natural flavors, natural sweeteners and no artificial colors – unlike other sports drinks on the market. It’s a GREAT choice for young athletes especially, who don’t need all the extra sodium in their diets or the artificial ingredients that come from drinking other sports drinks on the market.

BODYARMOR comes in 8-great tasting flavors: fruit punch, orange mango, strawberry banana, tropical punch, lemon lime, mixed berry, grape and blackout berry. Our favorites are strawberry banana and blackout berry.


Many of today’s top athletes choose BODYARMOR as their sports drink of choice, including: Mike Trout, Andrew Luck, James Harden, Buster Posey, Richard Sherman, Dez Bryant, Skylar Diggins and Sydney LeRoux.

You can find BODYARMOR in many retailers nationwide. In the Philly, DC, Baltimore areas, you can find BODYARMOR at

Philly: Shop Rite, Wegmans, Target
DC: Safeway, Wegmans, Shoppers, Target
Baltimore: Safeway, Wegmans, Shoppers, Food Lion, Target

CLICK HERE for some printable coupons to save some money off of your next purchase.

We really love the great taste of BODYARMOR and hope you do too!

I was given samples of BODYARMOR sports drink to try for my honest feedback. This is a sponsored post.

My Stunning Photo by AdoramaPix!

You may have seen my post about AdoramaPix. I mentioned how you could get a really cool metal hexagon print of YOUR photo. Well, I was given a very generous gift certificate by the company to complete the ordering process and tell you all about it!


From start to finish, I did it on my iphone! Isn’t that cool? I didn’t need to use my computer at all. I went to their website and followed the links to order wall decor. I chose a hexagon print of a photo my son took, of a lighthouse in Erie, PA. This photo was special to me because we were on a trip to Erie for my daughter’s annual trip to Shriner’s hospital for her check up. She had mild cerebral palsy and she got a good report for another year. We took a drive to see the beaches of Lake Erie, some place I had never been before, but heard so much about from my own mother! This was something I had wanted to share with my children. We saw this beautiful lighthouse. During the busy tourist season, they have it open to tours, but it was closed while we were there and the gate was locked. I asked my son to lean over the fence and take a photo for me. He did such a great job!

A few things I love about this print is that it’s virtually indestructible. It is waterproof, so you can display it outside, like on a patio, for example. If your home is as chaotic as mine, it is a great for your walls, as the kids can’t break it! If it falls down, there are virtually no scratches or damage, just hang it back up.

It comes with a cute and handy little level to use for hanging it perfectly straight.


I suggest buying more than one so you can create groupings. A wonderful Twitter follower suggested one of he and his wife than one of each family member individually. You can group virtually anything! I plan to add more photos that my son takes, on our trips together.

AdoramaPix has amazing customer service, quick shipping and quality service overall.

Don’t forget,
