Gimbal's Fine Candies Review! #EasterGiftGuide

Gimbal's Fine Candies are peanut free, tree nut free, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free and egg-free. These ingredients are responsible for countless allergic reactions across the nation.It is so hard to find candy Christian can share with his head start class because of allergies so I was super excited when Gimbal's agreed to send enough Jelly Beans for Christian's entire head start class. I added each child a pack to the Easter baskets I made his class. The flavor of Gimbal's candies is so natural. You can tell the quality of their ingredients. I love The Cherry Lover I buy the Cherry Lover's all the time and Chris actually picked me up a package of the Cherry Lovers to add to my Mother's Day gift this year he thinks I don't know but I saw them hidden. The kids loved the Scotty Dogs they liked that they were shaped like dogs. Chris liked the Cinnamon Lovers and so did I. That is saying something because I usually hate cinnamon but most cinnamon is artificially flavored and Gimbal's uses actual cinnamon oil and the taste is so much better. I just want to say a huge thank you to Gimbal's Fine Candies most companies don't donate to schools or even take the time to read your request. Gimbal's truly cares about their customers and offer a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee on all of their products! But you won't need it Gimbal's is great!

To purchase from Gimbal's online or to find a store that carries Gimbal's go to Gimbal's website. Make sure you are following on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/gimbalscandy they have awesome contests and so many chances to win. They have a coloring contest now so don't miss out!

Ideals Books Review! #EasterGiftGuide


Ideals Books is a wonderful company that we order from every Christmas. I was so excited when I got the opportunity to review 2 of their amazing Easter Books. The first Here Comes Peter Cottontail even has sound. My kids love pushing the button and hearing the Here Comes Peter Cottontail music. The second is The Sparkle Egg; most of you probably remember the Sparkle Box from Christmas this is the Easter variation. It is an amazingly touching book. The synopsis is below:
The Sparkle Egg:
Easter is coming, and Sam loves Easter! But this year, he is upset about a lie he told his parents. Even though he apologized and they forgave him, Sam can't shake the feeling that he is a bad kid for what he did. Meanwhile, his parents help him make a special Easter craft called a Sparkle Egg. His mom tells him to write anything he feels sorry about or ashamed of on a piece of paper and put it inside his Sparkle Egg.
On Easter morning, when he opens his Sparkle Egg expecting a surprise, Sam finds that it is empty! His parents explain that because Jesus died and rose again, we are forgiven. Like the tomb that first Easter Day, Sam's egg is empty -- and Sam's wrongdoing is completely forgiven. Once he accepts this forgiveness fully, Sam realizes a truth: we can sparkle and shine with God's light when we let God's gift of grace into our hearts.
This touching story will strike a deep chord with readers of all ages, and the Sparkle Egg tradition will help readers and their families grasp the totality of God's perfect grace. Ages 4-8.

Noble Originals Review and Giveaway! #eastergiftguide

Noble Originals quality is amazing I found Noble Original's products on Etsy and I said "OH MY GOSH! I HAVE TO TRY THIS". I was so excited when I got the chance to review the Easter Line from Noble Original's.  I love that they are vegan. You guys know my obsession with healthy products. My kids are absolutely in love with the floating ducks and lambs. These soaps actually float. I thought that was very neat and the kids loved the floating fun. I also specifically asked for the little guns they were my boys favorites. I am thinking of ordering them as party favors for Gavin's Birthday. They actually enjoy bath time and want to scrb good with these soaps.


That isn't all Noble Original's carries anything you can think of soap with pumice stone on the back. I think that is such an interesting concept and so useful.My feet need lots of love. Noble Original's also has lip balm,sugar scrub, lotion anything you can think of. Noble Originals would make great Easter basket stuffers or an amazing Mother's Day Gift!
To purchase from Noble Originals go to Noble Originals website or Etsy. Make sure you like Noble Originals on facebook she does specials and giveaways very often and is an amazing person! One winner will also get to try Noble Originals. Enter Below:

I See Me Review nd Giveaway! #eastergiftguide

I See Me has always intrigued me and I finally had the chance to try their amazing products. I was able to review the personalized Coloring and Activity Book and Stickers. I chose the Blast Off 123 Coloring and Activity Book because both of my sons love space. I chose the Easter Stickers so my kids could work on their name recognition. I have always liked personalized gifts the personalization I feel just gives your gift the added touch to make it super special. My boys are also both learning letters and how to write their names. I love being able to let them stick one of their Easter stickers and write their names below the sticker. It gives them a guide to follow for writing their name plus the sticker makes their name legible. They try but are learning and you can not really tell what they are writing yet. Christian is older and he almost has his name down but Gavin is not even close.



I thought the Blast Off 123 Coloring and Activity Books would make great Easter basket stuffers so I am giving them my #eastergiftguide stamp of approval. I love the personalized Snuggle Bunny Gift Set it would be the perfect addition to any basket or a perfect gift in itself! Check out I See Me and see all of the amazing personalized products.

Back to Blocks Review #EasterGiftGuide

I am always looking for educational and interactive toys so I was very excited to be able to bring you Back to Bloks. Back to Blocks has many different block selection from small packages like mine pictured above to giant buckets full. Whichever you try it is sure to be a hit with the kids. Gavin my 3 year old built house after house until he finally decided he wanted to paint his Back to Blocks I don't know if that is recommended but we let him and it worked really well(just be sure to use the correct paint and have an adult helping). Not only is he learning shapes but he is also learning new colors when he plays with his Back to Blocks after he painted them. We chose bright primary colors the colors he will need to know for school. I was very pleased to find out that Back to Blocks are also hand made another plus! Back to Blocks would be an amazing addition to any Easter Basket. I highly recommend purchasing Back to Blocks as part of my #EasterGiftGuide.

To purchase Back to Blocks go to their website here  http://www.backtoblocks.com/  . Make sure you follow Back to Blocks on facebook as well to stay up to date on any promotions and contests!

Dial Handsoap Review and Giveaway!

Dial has always been a favorite in my family. I can remember when I was younger using the large orange bars of soap. My mom swore by Dials Orange Soap Bars. Now as a mom I have to worry about protecting my kids and I trust dial to get rid of germs and to keep my families hands soft and germ free. Dial Deep Cleansing Moisturizing Hand Soap is available in 3 new varieties Yellow Raspberry and Black Sugar, Coconut Lime Verbena and Water Blossoms. I was able to try all 3 varieties as I used some of my coupons to find the Coconut Lime Verbena; my favorite is the Yellow Raspberry and Black Sugar. I am amazed at how soft my hands are feeling. Dial Hand soap is very moisturizing well scented and I am in love with the little micro scrubbers (the little specs you see in the soap) they really do clean deeply while moisturizing and smoothing skin.
Check out all of the amazing products Dial has to offer on their website here http://www.dialsoap.com/. Make sure you are following Dial on facebook and twitter so you are up to date on all of their amazing new products, contests and promotions.

#DisneySide Celebration!


My kid are huge Disney fans so we were super excited to host a #DisneySide celebration. Check out www.disneyside.com and www.disneysidecelebrations.com to see all of the fun you can have and all the fun we had with our parties!
My kids favorite part was the giant Mickey poster boards with mailers. They decided t make giant Valentine's Day cards. Christian made one for his teacher and Gavin made one for his granny. We did this before the party. We invited all of the neighbor kids to join in the fun. Our party was Mickey themed we played Lion King music and had a jungle scavenger hunt game. Check out our beautiful set up above. We had 4 kids attend plus my 2 sons and they had an amazing time.
The kids really liked the Craisin' Ocean Spray snacks sticking with our jungle theme; we used them to make ants on a log. They also loved the balloons; but what child doesn't love balloons. A hue Thank You to Disney Side for allowing us to host a #DisneySide Celebration!

Oriental Trading Company Review! #eastergiftguide





All 24 Easter Baskets fully assembled


How much would you expect to pay to make 24 Easter baskets? A lot right! Not with Oriental Trading Company I made all of these baskets you see here for less than $40! I love being active with Christian's school. My oldest Christian is 5 and this is his first year in school! Thanks to Oriental Trading Company I was able to very cheaply make baskets for his entire class and have a few left over for kids in need!

The contents of each basket




Each basket includes a full size kite check out Oriental Trading Companies amazing kites priced starting at $7.98 for four. I actually paid $2.64 for each dozen and bought 2 dozen but I found mine in the clearance section. I recommend starting shopping in the clearance section of Oriental Trading Company and seeing what awesome discounted finds you can get! I found chalk boxes there as well that each contained 24 pieces for $2.08 so I purchased 4 and bagged each child out 3 pieces each. The boys baskets I found Zombie cups in the discount section and paid $6 for 1 dozen cups. For the girls baskets I paid $12 at Wal -Mart for 12 cups. Oriental Trading Company was exactly 50 percent cheaper.



My favorite part of Oriental Trading Catalog was of course the Easter section. The Baskets were $1 a dozen I bought 2 and was so surprised to get baskets for $1 each. I found 24 toy filled eggs for $7! Then I found awesome Plush Bunny filled eggs! I wanted each basket to have a bunny so these were perfect! The Plush Bunnies were $14.99 per dozen but worth every penny!
If you have an upcoming birthday party, need classroom awards, or have a holiday coming your first stop should be Oriental Trading Company! There is no better place to buy in bulk!

I also bought several individual items for my sons own baskets. I purchased Crystal Growing Kits for $5. I found the most amazing Dino Dig Kits and I bought 12 for only $19 dollars. My kids love these. I also found a Fish Fossil Dig Kit I have never seen a fish before and my nephews love fish. I was so excited to find them. I can't wait to see the kids faces when they get their baskets!


To purchase from Oriental Trading Company go to http://www.orientaltrading.com/. Make sure you like and follow Oriental Trading Catalog on Facebook and Twitter. Do not miss out on their amazing specials!

Bella Sugar Essentials My Tax Time Splurge! #EasterGiftGuide #Mother'sDayGiftGuide

I am on a very limited budget so when the tax checks come I am jumping for joy. The first thing I did was hit up my favorite lady Jenn Fogliano the lovely lady behind Bella's Sugar Essentials. I absolutely love her stuff. She makes everything soap, sugar scrub, tarts, wax crumbles you name and she probably has it. This is my first #EASTERGIFTGUIDE recommendation but there will be many more. I want to emphasize this is a review I chose to do I bought and paid for my entire order. I love Bella Sugar Essentials so much! 
The large green Easter egg soaps you see in my pick will be basket stuffers, as well as the floating duck! All of the bunny soaps will also be basket stuffers. I bought enough so I could add one to each child in Christian's Head Start class one! I took a few samples into the last parent group meeting and all the moms loved them; I just had to buy more!
Easter Egg Soap
Cupcake Soap
Bunny Soap

After I ordered my Easter order then I saw this amazing sundae candle Jenn had made and I asked her to make me a soap in it! Look what she came up with. When I smelled this I pondered eating it; it smelled that good! But I haven't went off the deep end yet! I got my mom a second bar of this soap for Mother's Day. Jenn is truly an artist and her scents are more than amazing!




If it smells great Bella Sugar Essentials has it or can make it from Body Wash, Candles, Soap, Sugar Scrub, Bath Fizzies to Lip Balm get all of your orders in now! Message Bella Sugar Essentials on facebook (don't forget to like her page she has amazing contests) or shop Bella Sugar Essentials Etsy Shop.

Ripley's Aquarium Gatlinburg TN Review!


 Ripley's Aquarium Gatlinburg TN Review!







Ripley's Aquarium located in Gatlinburg, TN is one of my families favorites! We have been 3 times since the kids were born. I wish I could take them every year; there is just so much for kids to learn and see. Ripley's Aquarium is always the highlight of our trip! It is not only the kids favorite but it is my favorite and my husbands as well. I have never been to a beach and this is probably the closest I will ever get to seeing some of these amazing sea creatures. Around every corner there is something new to see. It takes us a good 3-4 hours to get through the aquarium usually. Christian got so sick on our trip and ran a high fever and this was the only thing he got to do. That was OK though because Ripley's Aquarium is absolutely the best attraction in TN and the one he most wanted to see. Let me tell you a little bit about what to expect!









Everything in Ripley's Aquarium is geared towards children and touch and feel engagement! They have several different exhibits and play areas for the kids. Then in the center everything opens up and they have a mini "play world" for the kids. They can crawl through LED painted fish caverns, crawl in peep holes for them to pop through and look inside fish tanks( pictured below) and if they are old enough hold horseshoe crabs. The kids really love the section in the play area where they could steer the boat wheel and look inside the treasure chest(pictured below). With Ripley's Aquarium there is never a dull moment. In every picture you can see the kids are engaged and learning! Most pictures they wouldn't even turn around for!

Ripley's Aquarium brings in a new exhibit every year. This year the new exhibit were all about Slime. The kids loved this part of the Aquarium! It was one of their favorite areas. They loved the water gun game where they had to hit their lobster and make it ding. What child doesn't love water. The also really liked all of the different worms on display in the Slime exhibit. The bullfrog exhibit was extremely funny because they had just eaten frog legs. Their daddy was sure to tell them that is what they had just eaten. My favorite part was touching the jellyfish. Jellyfish are super slimy but they are also very delicate. 



Touching the Jellyfish    
Interactive Exhibit on Sharks

Shark Lagoon is also another amazing part of the Ripley's Aquarium. The floor actually moves and transports you through the whole bay which is actually a tunnel. You can look up and see Shark's swimming above your head. There are so many different fish and the colors of the different fish are amazing. Ray Bay is also an extremely nice exhibit. At different times Ripley's Aquarium employees swim with the rays and allow you to touch them it is such a unique experience. We were also lucky enough to see a dive show. Christian and Gavin thought the diver would be eaten by a shark. The last thing you see before exiting to the gift shop is the Penguins. My kids love the Penguins; we spend most of our time there. It is an indoor/outdoor exhibit so it is very nice and you actually see the Penguins in such an up close way that it is mind boggling. I climbed in the kiddie tunnels with the kids and was delighted to see the Penguins swim right above you.

The whole family had an amazing time and will definitely be going back to Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies. It is truly a magic alone of a kind experience. A huge thank you to Ripley's for giving my family the opportunity to experience Ripley's Aquarium! To buy tickets go to http://www.ripleyaquariums.com/gatlinburg/plan-your-visit/ and to find out more visit Ripley's Aquarium website . Be sure to like Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokie's Facebook page also they have a lot of contests, specials and information. Right now a new Penguin needs a name!
That is not all though I got to visit every Ripley's Attraction and let me tell you they are all amazing! I will be posting links to each Ripley's Attraction as I get them written. Next you will see the Ripley's Mirror Maze, Ripley's Haunted Adventure , Ripley's Believe It or Not, Ripley's 3D Adventure and Ripley's Mirror Maze!
