We were recently contacted by Wal-mart to take their back to school shopping challenge. The challenge was to find and buy 5 outfits for $75 at Walmart. Since our 11 year old son’s school started back up in early August and we already had his school shopping done, we decided to take our 8 year old son on his very own shopping spree. Being homeschooled, he normally doesn’t get to do the whole back to school shopping experience therefore he was thrilled to be a part of this!
At first I was a little concerned that I wouldn’t be able to get 5 outfits for $75 so I logged on to Walmart’s Back To School Shopping Closet application for some preparation & inspiration. After I saw their awesome budget friendly prices I was ready to get some shopping done!
The Lorax comes to DVD + Blu Ray 3D on August 7, 2012. My two boys were so excited to get their hands on this blu-ray 3D + DVD combo pack because we didn’t get a chance to see The Lorax in theaters. We received the combo pack in the mail yesterday and have watched the movie two times already.
I have been homeschooling for almost 5 years now. This year I wanted to add a new dimension to our eclectic curriculum and I came across Time 4 Learning. I recently emailed T4L and asked them if we could review their product, and they said yes but wanted us to disclose beforehand that we are getting one month free in exchange for our honest review. Specifically, Time4Learning asked me to provide the following information:
I’ve been invited to try Time4Learning for one month in exchange for a candid review. Time4Learning can be used for homeschool, afterschool and summer skill sharpening. Be sure to come back and read about my experience.
We no longer use time4 learning and I plan on posting my full review here very soon.
Mother’s Day is coming up which means husbands and kids will be looking everywhere for that perfect gift to celebrate Mom. And at the end of the day, most Moms will get some kind of flowers. Others lucky enough will be adorned with homemade cards and breakfast in bed. While I think flowers are gorgeous I just don’t think they are practical as gifts because they die so quickly. Maybe I’m the only one(well, that’s obvious) but I’m not big on flowers for gifts. However, plants as gifts are a totally different thing. Recently ProFlowers asked us to review an item from their online shop and sticking with my true self I skipped over all of the gorgeous flower bouquets and went straight to the plants specifically the Pretty In Pink Bulb Garden.
I received the Bulb Garden from ProFlowers quite quickly. Within one week this bulb garden went from barely showing above the soil to gorgeous pink hyacinth flowers.
I had never tasted chocolate covered strawberries until last week when Shari’s Berries requested that we review them. Shari’s Berries is an online company that ships gourmet chocolate dipped strawberries, cookies, and other sweet treats all across the United States.
My family and I tried out a variety of fresh chocolate dipped fancy strawberries and cookies. You can find the actual item we tried here. The chocolate covered strawberries and chocolate dipped cookies from Shari’s Berries are not only delicious but they are very fresh and oversized!
