Kettle Brand- Review

Have you heard of  Kettle Brand? I remember hearing about them, but I had never tried them until Bzzagent sent me my kit. 
I was excited when I saw the envelope in the mailbox. When the coupons came I couldn't wait to get to the store and get my bag of chips and popcorn to try. I choose the sea salt for both the chips and the popcorn. When I came home I realized something. This was more than just another bag of chips or popcorn.

 Did you know the Kettle Brand is
  • all-natural, non-GMO ingredients
  • no trans-fat or MSG
  • no preservatives or gluten
  • packaging material reduced by 20%

Baby Orajel Naturals Nighttime Teething Gel- Review

Hello all, I hope your day was great! We had our first snow day here in Kentucky. My son was quite happy that he got to stay home from school today. It definitely felt good to sleep in a little bit this morning. I'm sure all you mom's and dad's can understand that. My 6 1/2 month old has begun the teething process. This smiley360 mission for teething gel could not have come at a better time. I receive free products to try and write reviews on them, and share the news with others.

If you've ever dealt with a teething baby you know it's no fun for you or the baby. Pools of drool, chewing on anything and everything, crying because of the pain of swollen gums, and finally the tooth cuts through and just when you think you're going to get some relief your baby cuts another tooth.
While my 6 1/2 month old hasn't cut his first tooth yet, he is in the beginning stages of teething. We have pools of drool, and he is chewing on anything and everything, and his gums are tender and swollen. Just when he started sleeping through the night, he has started waking up at random times again crying because of the pain. It won't be long.

During the day we have teething rings, and teething toys for baby to chew on. But at night when you just want sleep what do you do? What if I told you your baby doesn't have to suffer through the night?

Children's Mucinex review

The weather is changing and becoming colder now, and it's about time for the end of fall beginning of winter colds to set in.
Recently I became a member of smiley360. I get to try products for free, and in return I tell others about them.
I have 3 boys and we all know how kids share germs. This could not have come at a better time because literally days after I signed up for this campaign my oldest son 8 years old started coughing and sneezing, and having a stuffy / runny nose, etc.

How to organize a shared closet

Hello everyone! When I was pregnant with my youngest baby, my husband and I decided that he would share a room with his brother. We have 3 boys. Our oldest who will be turning 8 in a few weeks, a 2 year old and a 4 month old. We felt like it would be better to put the younger ones together and let our oldest child keep a room to himself. At least for a while.
Now this is kind of embarrassing but I always try to do a before and after picture. So here is the before picture........

I couldn't handle the chaos anymore! It wasn't organized, it was hard to find things. I had to move things around to find things. And yes I even bought diapers once when I thought I ran out, only to later find a pack in the closet that was hiding.
So I decided to do something about it.

Homemade cloth diaper wipes

I recently started using cloth diapers. One problem I ran into was we used huggies wipes. Don't get me wrong, they are great when you're using disposable diapers. But what do you do with them if you're using cloth diapers? 
So I did some research and this is what I found..... You can make your own reusable cloth wipes at home. 

Cloth diaper organization

Are these not the cutest things you've ever seen? I love how cute these cloth diapers are. We use both cloth and disposable for the simple fact that I do not want to carry around a dirty diaper in the diaper bag, and I do not want to wash them out in public. We use them at home mostly through out the day. We use disposable at night and when running errands. 
My main problem with cloth diapers was how on earth do you organize them?

Homemade baby food - Bananas

I just recently started making my own baby food. To be honest we still buy some, but are thinking about switching over to all homemade. My main reason is because I've read a lot about recalls on baby foods for finding foreign objects such as glass, etc.

How to freeze corn

I love when corn on the cob goes on sale at the store. I personally love corn on the cob better than store bought canned corn. It just tastes better. The problem is, that corn is only in season for so long and then we have to wait until the next season. Well.... Here is how you can have corn on the cob all year round.

In Gods time

As a parent we have all felt at one time or another that we just can not do anything right. Especially if you have little ones running around. I have a 7yr old, a 2 yr old, and an almost 3 month old. There are times when I feel defeated and I just feel as if I can't do anything right. Do you ever wonder if God often feels this way about us? I mean we complain about everything! Before you go getting upset and telling me about how God will never be defeated (I already know). Please hear me out.

Forgiving even when it hurts

Matthew 18:21-35 ESV 

Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven.

 We've all been there, someone has said or done something that hurt our feelings. Sometimes it is easy to forgive, and other times the pain is so bad that it seems easier to hold a grudge. We put up a wall so that we can't be hurt by that person anymore.

The bible says that we are supposed to forgive those who sin against us, but how can we forgive when forgiving hurts?

Children's Claritin Review

Do your kids suffer from seasonal allergies? Have you tried just about everything you can think of, only to have to choose between allergies or a drowsy child? Look no further...... Have you tried Children's Claritin? It comes in a liquid form, and a chewable form. Children's Claritin will provide your child 24 hour relief from allergy symptoms, without making them drowsy or jittery.

My oldest son has terrible seasonal allergies. Itchy, watery eyes, sneezing, sniffles, you name it. His doctor told us to try Zyrtec. After trying it for a few weeks, he was still having issues with allergies, and on top of that he was drowsy, and jittery. I believe since then they have come out with a non drowsy version, although once we tried Children's Claritin he immediately found relief, and for more than just 6 - 12 hours. A full 24 hours of allergy free pure happiness. Thank you Claritin!!

As you know I am a BZZAGENT, I get to try products for free, and write a review, and tell people about the product/ products. I highly recommend Children's Claritin to anyone who has a child who needs relief fast! e-mail me at for more info on how you can get a high dollar coupon for Children's Claritin today. Please type Children's Claritin in the subject line. Thanks for reading!

God bless,

Forgotten Savior

We have all had that one friend who claims they will always be there. Time passes and they only call you when they need something, or want something. That is exactly how America is treating God. Those of us who have been there, know that it can be painful and hurt your feelings, or make you angry. How do you think God feels?

Schick hydro silk sensitive care review

I have used Shick razors before, but I have never tried this type until this review. Honestly my personal choice before this was Gillette. When the cost of the replacement cartridge went up for them I started using my husbands extra travel razor. 

I normally have very sensitive, dry, skin. When I saw this campaign I knew I had to try it because it was for sensitive skin so why not? 
Day 1: When paired with Skintimate shaving gel (Which is recommended) I could already tell that my legs felt smoother, and more hydrated. You see normally right after a shower I have to put lotion on or my dry skin will itch me like crazy. After just one use I could tell that I didn't need to use lotion. 

Because it has 5 blades it cuts closer, and I don't need to shave every day. I can skip a day. I know some of you are like really, you skip a day? If you are a mother you know that shaving your legs is a luxury and unfortunately it doesn't happen as much as we would all like to think it does. I'm lucky to enjoy a hot bath or shower that lasts more than 5 minutes. 

After using this product for a week I will update and let you know my final thoughts, results, and recommendation.  Thanks for reading. 
Update: Well after trying this product for a week, I am sold. I can not get over the fact that the shave is so close that I don't have to shave everyday. I love that there is a moisturizing strip, and how smooth my legs feel after I shave. My skin feels great!! I highly recommend this product to anyone.  Especially busy mothers who barely have time for themselves. You can thank me later!
