The Kid's Guide to Dog Bite Prevention!

First let me say no one made me post this it isn't a favor to a company or anything else, I am posting this because it is valuable. Most of you who read my blog know me and my family and know my husband was recently viciously attacked by our dog of 13 years. Our dog was a pit bull chow mix but I don't think breed matters any dog can attack at anytime. We just thank god that this didn't happen to the kids or me. It would have killed anyone but my husband. Chris is 6 foot 5 and has the size to go with it.

Our dog attacked him after we had put him in the garage since there were really bad storms here that night. The next morning my husband fed him everything was fine. The door to the garage was open the entire time. When my husband went to walk out our dog walked to the door stood there looked him in the eye (my husband says at this time he knew he was in for a fight) and stared him down. Chris proceeded to walk out of the garage and the dog began his attack. He went first for my husbands throat but missed we figure due to Chris's height and the fact he was fighting him off. He then latched onto my husbands arm after he whacked our dog who we loved on the head 3 times with bolt cutters he stunned him enough to get out of the garage dog still attached to his arm gnawing away. He knocked our dog against our children's swingset and the side of the concrete blocked garage and again got him off long enough to make it to the road. From the road to the house the dog continue to gnaw his arm and attack. When I saw the scene myself all I remember is Chris skin ripping as he pulled his arm in the door and ripped the skin off that the dog was still attached to biting.

 My husband always wears a gun he has had his concealed carry for years. The night before this I had asked all the guns be taken out of the house and to his mother's next door because our oldest son 6 was getting to curious and needs to be taught more about gun safety. So on the day we would need one we were trapped in our house 2 hours waiting on police or anyone else. Most people we knew were out it was a weekend they were enjoying the day as we were ready to also that is why my husband went to let our dog out we were getting ready to leave. After 3 calls to the paramedics the police arrived 2 hours later. We had one person who we could get a hold of who cared to help that day and many others that were just too far and figured the police would make it before they did. DO NOT DEPEND ON THE POLICE OR PARAMEDICS TO SAVE YOU. THEY WILL NOT MAKE IT IN TIME. Me and my husband were both trained and had a good back ground in many different medical jobs. If not for that my husband I doubt would be here. When ambulance and police did arrive they didn't even know it was a dog attack. They were looking for a black suspect as our dog was black and I had screamed a black dog all they had heard was black. I do't know how that is?? My husband received between 200-300 stitches internal and external stitches and had 6 drainage tubes. We still do not know how much use he will have in his arm and hand but has already surpassed what doctors thought would be the best outcome. That day taught me one lesson you can not trust animals. They are just that animals; instinctive, territorial and wild. I am not afraid though and will be getting another dog just the right dog. A smaller size that can't kill me.

I want to share with you today a resource for your children to prevent dog bites Please share this with your children!

Crayola is at the Top of our Back to School List!

Free For All received samples to facilitate this review all opinions are 100 percent my own.


If you are going back to school I guarantee you have at least one item from Crayola on your back to school list. Crayola sent us several shipments to try out their different back to school products. One thing I loved that you should consider that probably won't be on any ones back to school list but your child's teacher will love you are the Visi-Max Dry Erase Markers. I think to many times we get lost in what our kids have to have and forget about what the teachers need to teach. We try and keep both in mind and buy extras for the teachers as well. Check out all the new products Crayola has and find your child's teacher and your child what they need!


My kids and I really enjoyed trying numerous types of Crayola products we otherwise may have never known about like the Pip Squeak markers. They are perfect for my toddlers tiny grasp. The Dry Erase crayons were also a hit, my boys loved that they had a crayon they could wipe off. They can also use them in their wipe off work books. It makes learning a little funner! For these crayons all you really need is a slick surface that wipes off easily nothing of course that is valuable or you would worry may be damaged. For the little artist in my ife my youngest Gavin he had a ball with the Water Colors and loved how I could clean off the colors when he mixed them up on accident with a paper towel.


If your kids hate the smell of markers maybe you should try Crayola's Power Lines scented markers. These are perfect for larger poster board projects. They are also fun for kids to just be creative with. Christian my oldest likes drawing pictures of the marker's scent. For example with Ampd Green Apple he draw a giant Green Apple then brought it to me and wanted me to guess what it was by the scent.  Crayola has pretty much any kind of crayons, markers or paint that your kids may need. Most of you have probably used colored pencils and crayons but I want to take a minute to say that Crayola is the only brand we use in crayons or colored pencils. I see so many companies offer 10 cent crayons and they are pure junk. They break when I use them so how quick can a child tear them up. Crayola lasts they stand for quality and stand the test of generations!


Crayola is a brand I grew up with and to me it is iconic. I want my kids to enjoy the same fun I had with Crayola product's as a child and I want your kids to enjoy Crayola also. So make sure you are following Crayola on social media below to stay up to date on contests, coupons, new products, discounts and so much more!

Back To School with Oriental Trading!

Free For All received a sample to facilitate this review no compensation was received!


Its that time of year again. Time for back to school shopping;for us this is a time i dread. Money is always tight and it is so hard to buy everything the kids need and want so they feel stylish and fit in well with the other children. We spend our days looking for bargains so that we can get enough school supplies for all of the kids without spending an arm and a leg. THIS YEAR WAS A LITTLE DIFFERENT FOR US THOUGH; WELL A LOT!


What if I told you I was able to get enough supplies for an entire classroom of kids for under $75? Sounds pretty unbelievable doesn't it? Well, it isn't! I was browsing Oriental Trading and noticed there amazing prices; I knew they were the best place for parties but hadn't thought about how much I could save shopping Oriental Trading's School Supplies. I decided to order our school supplies from Oriental Trading the prices were just amazing. Then I thought, why not get enough supplies for my sons entire kindergarten class. I almost had enough supplies for both my sons Kindergarten classes since they are both in separate classes I have to buy enough now for over 50 children to supply both classes.  With Oriental Trading's bulk products at amazing prices I was able to do just that! This is what we were able to get for a total of $74.96:


Stars & Stripes Mega Pencil AssortmentIN-13696530
144 Piece(s)

$14.99





School supplies never last the whole year and with schools having so much funding issues and often supplies run out before the year is half over. I wanted to give both my sons classes a great start this year and hope they have enough supplies to get off to a great start! This is what I recommend purchasing for a classroom from Oriental Trading pencils, glue, paint, crayons, and folders. This is easily do able for under $50 if you are purchasing for only one class of around 25. I purchased for 2 and had almost enough for everyone I was only a few short on folders and glue. Hopefully another parent can help out in those areas. Buying for an entire classroom isn't something I normally do, but at these prices I figured it was a good idea.

 Oriental Trading has so much more than just school supplies though. They have party decorations, holiday decor and craft projects for all ages. Of course we will also be getting all of our sons classes Halloween Party products from Oriental Trading. Look back soon for our Halloween Guide which will include our haul from Oriental Trading.

With Oriental Trading the possibilities are truly endless! Get started planning your perfect party, get together or event today start your shopping at Oriental Trading. To connect with Oriental Trading on social media follow the links below:

Freedom Mentor Review!

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book free of charge to facilitate the review.  This post was created in partnership with Mom Buzz Media and all views and opinions expressed above are my own.  


Most dream of owning their home for some it never becomes a reality due to so many factors; lack of money usually being the number one factor. At the age of 6 I saw my dad "flip" his first house and from there on became immersed in the word of real estate. My father purchased a house from a woman who was deceased and had kept several pets. He paid $12,000 for it and sold it within a week for $30,000 to a contractor who wanted to fix the house up who then sold it for $75,000. To me this was amazing and I always took every chance I could to go to property and house sales. My husband and I purchased our first trailer and property for less than what it is evaluated for 13 years later (a lot less). Do you want to learn how to become a real estate investor? 
Phil Pustejovsky has written an amazing book Freedom Mentor you can purchase on Amazon or even get the kindle version for free just click here! Phil explains Real Estate at the basic level and tells you how to start for free. Learn more about Phil and his approach to real estate investment here. If you are like me and love hearing what drives people Phil does an excellent job explaining how he got his start  in real estate investment and how you can to. All it really takes is an excellent work ethic and going that extra mile ( a little luck helps to in my opinion). 
Phil's book How to be a Real Estate Investor begins with Phil penniless unhappy with his degree from Vanderbilt University in mechanical engineering homeless and hopeful to make it in real estate investment to growing one of the largest real estate mentor-ship programs in the world. Phil puts the lessons in his book to use every day in training others to partner with him and mentors them in how to make it in real estate. This has allowed him to not only buy real estate in his area but all over the world opening him up to many more real estate investment opportunities. 
If you are interested in the fundamentals of real estate investment How to be a Real Estate Investor is a must read. Even if you are looking to purchase your own home this is a good solid book for anyone investing in any real estate ventures. Be sure to check out Phil himself here we could all stand to learn a little on solid real estate investment from Phil.

Homepolish Design By The Hour!

**This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

Interior Design Services from Homepolish
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to have an interior designer in your home? It’s no longer just a fantasy with help from the interior design start-up Homepolish. They make it easy (and affordable!) to get an interior designer in your home who will help create the perfect space for you. The experience is truly one of a kind so we decided to break it down for you in three easy steps:

1. Let the designer get to know you:


Tell them the bare bones: are you interested in working on a home, office, store or something else? How big is it? Do you have a project budget? Do you own or rent? And then tell them the juicy stuff: What inspires you? What does your ultimate dream space look like? From picking paint colors to gutting a brownstone, they can handle any project, any size.

2. The first date, aka meet your homepolish designer:


Here’s what happens during your initial 1 hour consultation: you and your designer meet, they tour your space, you guys chat. Then your designer follows up with a few design options for improving your home/office/whatever. They start with a one hour consultation so that their designer can understand your goals, needs and wants. Communication is the foundation to every healthy relationship!

Homepolish wants the relationship between you and their designer to be as stress-free and helpful as possible. If during the initial consultation, you and your designer don't get along perfectly, Homepolish will tweak the matchmaking process and send another on the house. The initial consult is $50 or $80 (Junior and Senior rates). If you're over it, there's no pressure to buy hours after the consult.

3. Purchase your designer’s time:


One of the many reasons Homepolish is unique to the interior design world is because you purchase time by the hour. Every hour is spent working on what you need - from picking paint colors to sending you furniture options to renovating your loft. Whatever the size and however complicated your project is, they are there to help! Junior designers' time costs $100/hour, Seniors' cost $130/hour and they have two package options: a Single Day session (three hours) and The Design Package (as much time as you want with a minimum purchase of ten hours).

Save time and money, sign up with Homepolish and rework your space with an expert!

Roanoke Ring Slings Review!

Free For All was sent a sample to facilitate this review all opinions are 100 percent my own no financial compensation was received.


As a mom of 3 I had always wanted to try ring slings. I am always so busy and always carrying a baby and thought how nice it would be to at least have my hands free for dishes, cleaning etc. I just never had the nerve or opportunity but I got lucky and won a giveaway on Facebook for a ring sling from lovely company called Roanoke Ring Slings. I was able to connect and chat with the owner and really hit it off with her and wanted to share how well made her ring slings are with you.

Roanoke Ring Slings have all the property safety features and inspections and even come with a registration card to register your ring sling. That was the first thing I saw that this wasn't a pop up Facebook company that they are taking all they right precautions and have well made products. My first slinging experience was at the mall I had practiced getting all my wrapping techniques correct and how to position Sierra, as well as how to get her in and out.



 I became an instant fan Roanoke Ring Slings are stylish and give you back your hands. I always thought the worst of Ring Slings because of some of the super fails I have seen but there are proper techniques you can use that insure safety for baby and your back. Below are some great videos everyone can watch these are the way I learned and I think you will find them very helpful. I DID!



Please take a few minutes to review these links on babywearing safety and how to properly use your ring sling.

Save-A-Lot $25 Gift Card Giveaway and Introducing New Suave Product Line Review!

Disclaimer: I'm required to disclose a relationship between our site and Save-A-Lot. This could include Save-A-Lot providing us w/content, product, access or other forms of payment.
I've always done the majority of my grocery shopping at my local Save-A-Lot store. Its one of the only consistent grocery stores in our area. When all of the other stores lose business and have to close down, Save-A-Lot has remained. You can find a lot of your name brand items there like Chi Chis, Dole, Kellogg's and Oscar Meyer. The customer service is amazing, and the prices are unbeatable. I can easily fill up a shopping cart for around $200. That includes necessities other than food to, like paper towels, toilet paper, cleaning products etc. Save-A-Lot has also started selling Suave products. I love there children's products. I bought my boys the big bottle of 3 in 1 body wash, shampoo and conditioner, and the Suave Kids Surfs Up 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner. I was thrilled with the smell and my boys loved the lather.



My husband and I tried the Suave Green Apple Shampoo and Conditioner as well as the Waterfall Mist Shampoo. The smell was intoxicating, definitely one of my favorite scents. And the scent lasted all day. My hair is long and very thick, so conditioner is one of my must haves.  I've always been picky with my conditioner , but I was pleasantly surprised to find such an amazing conditioner at such a low price, it definitely grabbed my attention. I go through so much conditioner that I'm definitely going to stock up on this. The Waterfall Mist Shampoo was my hubby's favorite as he is more of an outdoorsy scent type.

The items I was most pleased with were the kids line of Suave products. I loved the Suave Kid's Apple and the Watermelon 2 in 1 Conditioner. The 2 in 1 was my favorite because the kids like only having to do the one step and condition and shampoo all in one. I was pleasantly surprised that they also did not complain with their eyes burning and the scents were just awesome. The Watermelon was perfect for the kids and brought me back to being a child myself and the fun scented products they make for little ones!
