Gifts for the Man in Your Life: Jord Watches

June 17, 2015 By · 4 Comments

Disclosure: We were sent a Jord Watch for review purposes. All pictures and opinions are our own.

jordwatchAntonio, aka SoccerBoy recently graduated from High School and I was so happy to be able to give him a Jord Watch as a graduation gift (one reason I had to wait to do this post). While most of your teens are all about their phones and not caring about having the time on their wrist that is not him. He constantly looks at his wrist when someone asks about the time and immediately pulls out his phone. He had brought up a few months ago how much better it would be if he could have a watch for when he goes to college/work after he graduated high school so I was already hoping to find him one. Jord Watch wrote and asked if I’d like a chance at reviewing their lovely watches, at first I wasn’t too sure but since I knew SoccerBoy had mentioned wanting one I wondered if they had one in his size. They absolutely did and they had quite the selection once I found his wrist size.

In the photos above you can see the watch arrived in a very protected box, I call it a pandoras box because I couldn’t immediately open it. Not to worry it isn’t that hard I just thought you lifted it up. haha. Inside it is protected by the lovely (tiny) pillow to secure it and it also has a layer of bubble wrap around it so it won’t scratch or bump during its trip to you. Every night he takes his watch off and places it back in the box. We got the Fieldcrest Natural Green Jord Watch to review.

Watch Details:

  • Deployment Buckle with Push Button
  • Scratch Resistant Mineral
  • Citizen Miyota Quartz Movement (2035)
  • Case Width: 39mm
  • Case Thickness: 11mm
  • Lug Ends: 49mm

The New Caress Forever Collection: Inside My Bath

April 17, 2015 By · 1 Comment

Disclosure:  I was given compensation and/or product to facilitate my review of this product. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

As a mother to five children I don’t get that many breaks so for me when I close the bathroom door, most of the time that is when I get my mini vacation. Now I love my children but just like every parent out there we do need a few minutes of quiet, a time to relax and just enjoy a few moments of peace and quiet in a hot bath as we take in the day. Am I right? I love body washes, and bubble baths so I jumped at the chance to try out Caress’ Forever Collection.

I love the fact that after my bath (I wish it could be a shower but with my thick hair and low water pressure it isn’t possible for me) the fragrance lasts up to 12 hours every time my skin is touched. This comes out thick and smooth, it looks really creamy as you can see in the photos below. Thanks to it being 12 hour protection if I run my hand over my arm you’ll smell it. For myself my favorite was the Adore Forever because (in my opinion) it was a softer scent, my daughter loves the Love Forever.

Freshman Devotions Review

February 23, 2015 By · 2 Comments

The Freshman: Making Faith Your Priority by Lars Rood is a 30-day Devotional for your child’s freshman year. Since moving to California the kids and I have been falling in love with God and I love the fact that even my Freshman wanted to read a devotional. When I looked for one just for her I did have a bit of trouble because I kept finding them geared more towards women and not teen girls. I wanted something more personal so that she could relate more towards it and that is when I was asked if she’d review the Freshman Devotional. This book is 30 days of devotions and each day is geared towards their freshman year (not just for girls but Freshman year).

Below is her review, followed up with a few more comments from me.

Katerina, aka BalletGirl writes:
This devotional bible is for both boys ad girls. It shows that you can bring your faith to school without getting picked on. It really makes you think too. They try to tell you that your freshman year DOES MATTER. They also tell you, and make you think about how showing people your faith can bring out other people’s opinion of religion. It has a day by day page to do each morning or afternoon. They have challenges and a verse to read that relates to each story. The stories are brief and to the point, which is helpful to those who are busy. There are three sections to the book. In each section there are 10 days of devotions. Chapter 1 is about your firsts of everything. The second chapter is about where you are at in your faith. The last chapter is about Jesus being in your life. Read it and find out for yourself.

VeggieTales Noah’s Ark Review & Giveaway

February 5, 2015 By · 17 Comments

noah2

As an official Family Christian Blogger, I received a copy of the Noah’s Ark VeggieTales Movie to review.  All opinions/pictures are my own. 

I have been watching VeggieTales since SoccerBoy was 5 years old, he’s turning 18 at the end of March if that tells you anything. This has been one of the staples in my house even when I wasn’t attending church. I love the little stories they tell and how they relate to the bible. I was lucky enough to be asked to review the screener of VeggieTales Noah’s Ark and with all the recent Noah’s Ark movies that have come out in theater I had to see the VeggieTale version. (yes I knew it would have some dramatization, I mean there aren’t too many veggies that can talk) We have watched it as a family twice and today Nicoli (20 months old) is watching it as I type this. I love the fact that all my kids still love it (it teaches a message every time) and will sing the silly songs together.

About Noah’s Ark:

Noah and his family together with a zoo full of animals take an adventure aboard an orange slice ark. After 40 days and nights of rain, everyone’s faith has been tested, and they’re ready to jump ship. Will they chart a new course, or will they remember to trust God’s promises?

This was all about “God’s Plan” and how you must listen to it even when you think it might be crazy. I dno’t know how many of you out there question what he asks of you but I have. It starts right off with Noah’s son, Shem and his wife talking about starting their home and family on a bike ride, until they see the property and that Noah is up to something. They begin seeing 2 of every animal and as they get closer to the orange grove there is a giant boat (the Ark) in the middle of it. First, let me tell you the characters have changed slightly, by that I only mean the coloring and Bob the Tomato is thinner, these were a few things my kids noticed.

Little A (age 7) loved God’s promise with the rainbow because it was so beautiful and meant he’d never do it again.
