EyeBuyDirect Clearance: Buy One get one Free This Monday 02/09

Image
I'm going to be doing a review for Eyebuydirect.com soon. I've ordered my eyeglasses and just waiting for them to be made and shipped. I made a little mistake and forgot to fax over my prescription for several days. Eyebuydirect.com was great in contacting me via email and phone to let me know what was going on!

In the mean time though, they are about to have a huge sale and I didn't want my readers to miss it. Ordering was super easy online! I went with the Anna thanks to my hubby & tween talking me into that style :) I wanted the Cat, but they look almost exactly like the last two pairs I bought, lol.

Monday, February 9th - Mark this date and make sure you have your prescription ready for the EyeBuyDirect.com 24 hour stock clearance.

Veggie Tales: Abe & the Amazing Promise

Image
If you read my blog, you will probably be surprised to see this review here. My girls are 7 & 11, and somehow I missed the fact that Veggie Tales are religious based kids dvd's. My girls have never watched them so I had no idea.

Through the Family Review Network, I was offered the chance to review the new Veggie Tales: Abe & the Amazing Promise.

About the DVD ~

While on set filming, Bob the Tomato decides to respond to a fan's letter about "waiting", meanwhile everyone's patience is tested by spitting camels, a confused nurse, an easily distracted film crew, and a host of other laughable filming disasters! Join the comical chaos and calamity in Abe and the Amazing Promise that reminds kids that God always keeps his promises . . . even if we have to wait a while!

If you are religious family, then this movie is great. It is about the story of Abraham and Sarah. My daughter actually did not like this dvd. She couldn't get past the religious references.…

Looking for a great movie to watch this weekend? This weekend is the world premier of Gifted Hands on TNT. This is a movie that I highly recommend!

I watched this movie the other day, and it is truly Inspirational! Seeing a young boy growing up in Detroit and making something of himself thanks to a mothers encouragement, LOVE …

Review ~ Lost Sock!: 200 Clever Ways to Use Your Single Socks

Image
I have major issues with matching up my socks. I hate doing it, so I let it pile up. I also cannot seem to throw out a sock that I haven't found a match too. When I came across Lost Sock!: 200 Clever Ways to Use Your Single Socks, I knew I had to read this little book. It is written by Cynthia Copeland and is the most adorable book for adults.

We all have issues with lost socks, this is a must read. It gives you tons of ideas of things to do with that one single sock. Some of the ideas are genius, others will make you laugh out load.

My 7 year old saw me reading this book the other night and she said "I thought you didn't read picture books." I almost died, too funny. I would say the book is great for kids as well, but there are a couple of adult suggestions you might not want your kids to read on their own.

Review ~ Green Works Wipes

Image
I love the Clorox line of Green Works cleaning products. I did a review in the past for the dish washing soap before on this blog. It is still the dish soap that I use and one of my favorite products ever! Now thanks to Mom Central, I had a chance to try the Green Works Natural Biodegradable cleaning wipes in original scent.

The new Wipes are made from 100% cellulose fibers and derived from renewable farm grown trees. Like all Green Works products, they are formulated using biodegradable ingredients, are packaged in recyclable canisters and not tested on animals.

New Green Works Natural Biodegradable Cleaning Wipes will feature the Sierra Club logo on package, marking the brand's financial commitment to support the organization's conservation efforts, and are recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for using environmentally preferred chemistry.

The new Wipes work on grease, grime, dirt, soils and messes, and are safe to use on multiple surfaces throughout the k…

Review ~ Regeneration Anti-Aging Whole Food Bar

Image
I love eating granola bars, energy bars, protein bars etc. They are easy to throw in my purse and eat while I'm out. The bad thing about the bars though, it is hard to find one that are both good for you and healthy. I am trying to live a healthier lifestyle, so I am always on the look out for a great new product to aid me in my journey.

When I was given the chance to try the BRAND NEW Regeneration Anti-Aging Whole Food Bar, I was pretty excited! These bars are the first to contain a powerful combination of fresh, cold-pressed superfoods, high levels of anti-inflammatory nutrients and vitamins, nutritious fruit flavonoids and low-glycemic ingredients – foods that nourish from the inside out giving our body, skin and mind the nutrients needed to slow aging and achieve optimal health. The bar has been independently tested by Brunswick Laboratories to contain a super high 7,800 ORAC units per bar –The ORAC test is considered the industry standard in determining antioxidant level …

TCM 31 Days to Oscar

Image
A great channel Turner Classic Movies (TCM) are devoting each night in February to a Different Academic Field, with Academy Award®-winning and nominated films serving as course curriculum. They are calling it 31 days to Oscar and it starts today! It will run from February 1st through March 3rd, 2009.

They will be airing 350 movies to "educate" viewers in 92 different academic courses. What is really great about this extra special showing of these classic movies is that TCM has grouped the films by order of subject. They set it up as if you were in school. The films are shown by academic subjects.

For February 1, 2009 the films are from the "Communications Department". They will be shown by the various subjects that fall under that heading.
