Holiday Gift Guide 2011: MotherWord Products Review

It's funny; I always thought that being a stay at home mom meant an easier road, you know? But, that is Definitely not the case, life is just as crazy. You know the old saying about the greener grass lying on the other side of the fence? Well, in this case, that is so true. I still work, it just happens I don't work outside of the home. With two little ones I can tend to have a lot of things going on in my life that I have to keep track of. There are DR. appointments, shopping, errands, extra curricular activities, family outings and so much more (*cough* Bills anyone?). Then with all of this I still have the house, help with homework, and my blog, which has demands that only increase. 

For a while now, I have been writing in a tablet each day, making a list of things I need to get done. Admittedly, this process could be more convenient. Well now, thanks to Mother Word, it is. The fabulous people at Mother Word were nice enough to send me their entire collection to review. These items now are essential in my life, and I couldn't imagine not having them.

Cowgirl Chocolates Review/Giveaway

I love to eat chocolate candy bars, I mean they are a great snack or simply a great way to relax. Chocolate candy bars can be eaten with or without nuts. Although, I love chocolate and have tried so many different brands and flavors I have never tried spicy candy bars. Cowgirl Chocolates has sent me four different flavors, all of which were new to me.

About the company: Head Cowgirl Marilyn Lysohir founded Cowgirl Chocolates in 1997. Her two favorite things in the world are art (she has a notable career as a ceramic sculptor) and chocolate. In fact her first job was working in a chocolate factory in Pennsylvania. Marilyn mingled some favorite memories with some new ideas to create an American original, Cowgirl Chocolates...chocolates with a spicy cowgirl kick. She was the pioneer, one of the first companies to offer spicy chocolates in the world.

Holiday Gift Guide 2011: Uncle Milton Scurry And Scare Bugs & Tarantula Planet Review

There is one thing that all little boys love, anything to do with bugs and creatures. Oh yes, spiders, worms, and well anything that is icky. My little boy is no exception to this. To be honest when I was little I loved bugs too, I think it is simply a kid thing. Since, my little boy has tons of those little rubber and plastic bugs, I would love to give him something else in a toy that offers more. Like a spider that by simply clapping your hands makes it move, or a spider & cockroach that you can wind up and let move. Uncle Milton sent me Scurry And Scare Bugs & Tarantula Planet, which made my little boy one happy kid.

About the company:**********Uncle Milton Industries, based in Westlake Village, CA, began in 1946 as a novelty business geared toward the nation’s rising baby boomer generation. Since the introduction of Ant Farm, Uncle Milton has become a leading manufacturer of science and nature exploration products. Uncle Milton’s fascinating and educational toys are available at fine specialty toy, hobby, gift, education, mass merchant and department stores nationwide, and through several online retailers.**********
