Candide 3 in 1 Multi Relax Nursing Pillow

Staying comfortable while your pregnant can be the ultimate struggle, it seems no matter which position you turn to there is always an ache or a pain that you can't escape. Having 3 kids I know just how terrible the feeling can be, but if you have a high quality pillow to position yourself you can actually achieve a comfort level that you desire.  Now that I am done having kids my body aches in ways that remind me of being pregnant, just sitting on the couch to watch a movie or prop myself up in bed can be a struggle for any sort of comfort. Thanks to the lush coziness of the Candide 3 in 1 I can now sit or lay down for an entire movie without constantly adjusting positions, it is the best product ever! If I was to have another baby this pillow would be number one on my wishlist, it is the first convertible maternity/nursing pillow brought to market and it is by far one of the most thoughtful creations I have ever come across. It is perfect for comfort durin

Get Your Hunting License

I grew up with a family of hunters and fishers, we always had game meat around my house and it was a great way to grow up, we saved  ton of money by stocking our freezer with healthy, delicious, game meat. I have a love for wildlife and see hunting and fishing as a way to provide for my family while enjoying a very exciting and fun filled sport. So it comes as no surprise that I just passed my CORE and obtained my hunting license.  But how do you manage to get your CORE when you have kids at home and have little to no time to take a course? I did a home study program by , it cost $80 and I completed the course with fantastic grades. The beauty of this online course is you can do it at your own pace when you have time, instead of having to go to a class at a specific time. Most parents don't have that luxury. Once you complete your course you will be able to book your exam and get your license. is an excellent way to learn COR

Make a Minion Party Craft

My son has chosen to have a Minions birthday party this year. Who wouldn't? They are all the rage right now and I look forward to seeing the movie. When planning party activities I always like to include a craft of some kind if I can. So this year we are going to make minions. All you need is big pieces of project paper which can be found at dollar stores or Walmart for .50 to 1.00 each. Then you just cut strips about 3-4 inches wide and then cut those directly in half. Using a glue gun you can now begin assembling the rolls. Take a yellow and blue strip and place them together with just an inch of yellow poking out above the blue. Glue them together and then roll them to the shape of a toilet paper roll. Glue it together and let dry. Now you should have little minion colored rolls. All you need to do now is shape their heads, I just took my scissors and rounded the corners to look more like round minion heads. Get together markers, glue, googly eye

Smith & Vandiver Spa-ah Product Review

Smith & Vandiver was founded in 1979, they are a natural bath, body, and skincare company located just off the coast of the Monterey Bay. Unlike many of the big skin care companies, we have our own manufacturing facility and craft some of the best natural and organic products made in the U.S. Their latest product line is called Spa-ah and is one of the most luxurious products I have ever tried. The scents are subtle and make you relaxed and give you the feeling of being at the spa right in the comfort of your own home. A few of my favorites would be the watermint foot collection, it smells fantastic and comes in warming lotion, cracked foot healing cream, watermint foot fizzies and pedicure scrub.  The product line carries everything including massage oils, massage stones, body butter, bath soaks, foot lotions, bath fizzies and much more. Each massage oil scent has it's own effect like rejuvenation, stress relief, and sore muscles. These products are high
