Garage Door Safety

September 24, 2012 By · 152 Comments

Every year there are around 20,000 accidents that happen from garages that someone is rushed to the hospital for.  Many of these accidents could be prevented with a few tips that will be provided below, but as we all know, sometimes garage doors are just unpredictable.

·         Doors are heavy – never stand, run or play under or near any garage door, especially when the door is open or moving.

·         Openers are for adults – never play with the button on the wall that opens and closes the garage door.

·         Ouch! – never touch any part of a moving garage door. Your fingers and hands can get hurt!

·         Remotes are for adults – never play with the remote control in the car or on Mom and Dad’s keychain.

Cowgirls ‘N Angels Review

September 13, 2012 By · 1 Comment

I loved the movie “Flicka” so when I first saw previews for “Cowgirls ‘N’ Angels” I immediately wanted to see it and knew my girls wouldn’t be far behind me. I love a good tear jerker and this movie had all the makings for one, only I had no clue how much until I was smack dab in the middle of the movie and crying my eyes out. Of course my heart went out for my 9 year old daughter who was taking the movie much more seriously, but hey we all need a good cry, especially when it is from a movie and not real life. Right? I must admit that watching this with my girls made it so I could explain I once did tricks on horses after visiting a summer camp and now my daughter thinks I’m awesome. Such a great feeling but a bit of me misses that little summer camp and the time with the horses I had.

The Movie:
Film star and youngest actress in the movie, Bailee Madison (Just Go with It), Oscar nominee James Cromwell (The Artist), Jackson Rathbone (Twilight Series) and many other wonderful actors/actresses come together to bring you a rodeo of laughs and tears. A spunky young girl (Ida played by Bailee) with dreams of finding her father goes out in search of the rodeo to hopefully find him. But her love for a particular horse draws the attention of Terence Parker, who recognizes the drive and determination she has and the nature she has with a horse he takes her under his wing. She immediately learns all there is about the “Sweethearts of the Rodeo” and desperately wants to be a part of their team. It isn’t a piece a cake for this young rider though, she must prove herself to the ladies, Terence (who wonders if she is just too much trouble) and of course her mother (who wants nothing to do with the rodeo).

Terence trains the “Sweethearts of the Rodeo” which are trick riders, but when Ida discovers that getting her face and name on the front of a newspaper may draw her father to her she demands to learn the ultimate trick. Terence isn’t sure she has the skills quite yet but she insists and the team begins to train her. But with a fall hurts her and a trip to the hospital puts the whole team on the verge of losing everything will they be able to pull together to help each other out? Will Ida ever find her father or will she just adapt to the new family she has found? Oh I won’t be spilling the beans, you have to watch.

The film will be out on DVD October 2, 2012 at a Walmart near you. Will you be purchasing it?

Pop Some Snack Container Review

September 10, 2012 By · 1 Comment

Disclosure: I did receive the pair in order for review purposes, no other form of compensation was received. The opinions on this page were mine alone and my family.

QVC has created a great container to hold your snacks, this one is great because instead of everyone just dipping their hands in now they just pour them into their hands.  Why are these different from any others? Oh there are a few reasons. The biggest for me is when you walk into an office or even when kids are sharing something in the car someone is always saying “don’t touch the rest” or wondering about a co-worker “Did they wash their hands before dipping their fingers in the M&Ms.” There is no dipping these, you simply pour the snack inside the bowl. Cap the bowl tightly around, securing it and pushing the top down until no air gets in. It will tightly hug the center of the bowl. When someone wants a snack they simply pull up the center and pour it into their hands and seal the center again when they are done.

These little snack containers come in either pink or blue and are perfect for tossing inside a big purse, lunchbox or just taking on a car trip with young kids. I’ve posted three pictures above, an empty container to show you what it actually looks like up close, then I poured cheerios inside and closed it to show you how secure it is when you seal it and hold it upside down. See nothing falls out. Woo hoo! Finally this is what it looks like with something inside when it is secured with a snack inside.

The Pop Some Snack Containers can be ordered from the QVC website for $18 for the pair plus shipping & handling. The only wish I have is that they came in more festive colors to go with the holidays so you can have them on the table for the guests and it would go with the decor. These also come in a variety of other sizes which I think I’ll have to get the bigger one for cereal dispensing in the morning.
