PlayMg dontcha wanna know

Does this sound at all familiar: "Mom, can I have your phone? What's your password? Can I buy this app? I wanna play games on your phone?" I hear it all the time from my two daughters, which is one of the reasons I'm excited about MG (more game) - the first dedicated portable Wi-Fi gaming system for the massive 60,000-plus Android freemium app games market. MG eliminates the need for packaged games or expensive data plans that come with smartphones, and caters to the 63 million kids under 18 years, 39 million of which - like mine - do not yet have smartphones. With MG, kids get to enter the world of freemium Wi-Fi App gaming while parents can safely and affordably give it to them. And finally, we parents won't have to share any more and can reclaim our tablets and smartphones.

The MG Family Collaboration System—a new feature in the portable gaming space—includes “Digital Wallet” and “Remote Trust” notification functions. The MG “Digital Wallet” lets parents create "game allowances" through reloadable BillMyParents SpendSmart prepaid MasterCard. Teens have the freedom to discover, download and play the games they want from the app marketplace, while staying within set spending limits defined by their parents. Parents can also opt in to MG’s “Remote Trust” notification to receive instant text or email updates on MG activity. When an MG gamer enters her BillMyParents account number into the MG’s Family Collaboration System app, she can see her SpendSmart prepaid MasterCard balance right on her device. The BillMyParents SpendSmart system allows parents to remotely observe how their teens are spending their game allowances via text, email or by going online, and encourages family dialogue about smart spending habits. Parents can even lock or unlock the card with a text message if necessary. MG is the first to include a BillMyParents SpendSmart prepaid MasterCard directly into the MG device, giving parents an easy, safe way to moderate teen gaming purchases, while reinforcing the concepts of budgeting and making smart spending choices.
Making MG an even better value is the news that it will come pre-loaded with two hit games from EA ready to play right out of the box - 'Need for Speed Hot Pursuit' and 'NBA JAM'

Packaways box review

PackAways boxes are the best thing since water....
I'm always buying those stupid Tupperware boxes
 in the wrong sizes,
they always turn out to big and somehow I always seem to misplace the lid.
PackAways boxes Finally there's a box that you can use and when your done fold up and slip under a bed or behind something.
Classic Packaways
I personally used mine for a bathroom remodel to catch all the odds and ends...
 then once I was done I was able to fold it back up and slip it away.
For my home we are very limited on space,
 so PackAways boxes Will come in so handy..
PackAways boxes has Different sizes and colors

Classic Packaways
PackAways boxes also have classic tote and underbed boxes...

(info from there site)
PackAways was born out of the recognition that consumers need durable, versatile, easy-to-use, storage boxes that can fold down flat and store out of the way when not in use. Corrugated plastic was the logical medium, with its naturally durable, flexible, moisture-resistant qualities. Plus, our unique Wipe Away Re-Writable Panels allow the consumer to identify what’s inside the boxes and then simply wipe clean and write again

Packaways is on Facebook check them out ~HERE~
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

One Coconut drink review

One coconut drinks was an awesome review....
I'm not normally one that tries new things because I'm kinda set in my ways,
 One coconut drinks Is so refreshing and such unique flavors.

I love that it quenches your thirst.
 They come in such handy lil pouches.
They are awesome for road trips , with resealable lids that comes in handy with 3 children.
My sons loved the pineapple coconut flavors, they said that is what Hawaii would taste like for sure....that made me laugh so hard....
My mom loves coconut so I had her try it and she said she put hers in the freezer to get cold and forgot about it,
 so it made it a coconut smoothie and she loved it.
These are something I would recommend for any family on the go that wants to make sure your family is drinking things that are good for you....

Almondina Yummy review

Almondina  Was one of my yummiest reviews yet.....
I was kinda nervous that me and my family wouldn't love them, but no way we fell in love.
I've have some other cookies kinda like these and they were stale and I hated.....

Almondina were not to thick and had a really nice crunch.
My kids loved them and polished off their very own package each.
Almondina They come in so many great flavors and that is key in my house.
My husband didn't wanna try because he was sure he wouldn't like, he actually likes so much that he takes his very own for breakfast at work.
"Grandmother’s secret recipe is a no added fat,
no-cholesterol cookie for our time."
This all-natural, crispy almond cookie has no cholesterol and no added fat, salt, or preservatives. It is wonderfully crunchy and does not have to be dipped. It is a delightful accompaniment for coffee, tea, soft cheeses and fine light wines. The rush to eliminate fat from gourmet foods too often has also eliminated most of the flavor, a fact which is in sharp contrast to this enticingly delicious cookie.

Pirate Costume review

When i got the chance to do this review i was super excited...

Normally when halloween comes around im dreading costume shopping, my kids drag me from one store to next and they never find exactly what they are looking for. So we end up doing this huge circle and they always have to settle for what we can find, I hate that they never get to actually be what it is they were orignally wanting...

Well not anymore we can just jump online and go to Costume Discounters and get exactly what we are looking for. I love that they have all the accessories, including wigs and makeup and sooo much more to make the perfect costume.

When i showed this pirate costume to my daughter she fell in love with it.
I got a little worried thinking maybe this costume was gonna be to grown up for but she looks great in it.
Finally a costume dad approves of!!

The quality of her costume is way better than any other ive ever paid tons of money for....
Every parent has had the costumes that fall apart right in the middle of the occasion, Not this time forsure.

If you want the easiest way to shop for any costume and all the extras, you need to check out Costume discounters.

Being a mom of 3 and a wife to a always busy man....
cleaning products and new ideas are always in high demand around this here.
Little Cleaning Box Has to be the greatest idea yet.
This little box was packed full of great products, that honestly i would prob never have tried, without this chance... 
Little dish soaps that are almost too cute to open.

Also a packet to make your laundry smell good for months without dyes or chemicals love that!
 1 bag last 10 loads and is
full of dried herbs and essential oils. 

Also Skoy reusable rag that is also really cute and so durable.


I love that i finally get a way to try products before i buy....
i hate when i buy a 2 gallon jug of something i don't like,
well no more
 Little Cleaning Box  has made life just a little easier

I love that it comes with a cute little card  that's explains what you got and how to use it...
The only thing left to say is i need more!

Kanga ring phone case review


Have you ever been distracted  trying to find your cell phone while driving, then Kanga Ring is perfect for you!
 Kanga Ring helps you keep your eyes on the road instead of trying to find your phone....
Yet its easily found in case you have to have it!!
there's no more rolling across the seat, or off into the floor. 
Also its just out of reach so hopefully you wont be texting and driving...
  Did you know that according to a study by the National Safety Council, nearly one third of traffic accidents occur when people are talking on their cell phones, or send text messages while driving?  
 During a July 2007 survey of 1,000 teens, AAA found that 46 percent text while drive.

Kanga Ring comes in a variety of styles, patterns, and colors. You can choose from their selection of products listed below.

  • Stronghold
  • Go Ballistic
  • Luxe Line
  • Old School
I love that there are so many different colors and styles, and my husband loves that the ballistic is so well made...

we both thought it was so convenient that the cord for the charger goes right through the case,

so now your not wrestling the cords and trying to get it out of a case. 

  Kanga Ring offers a easy way to store your phone while your driving.
  You can find them on both
or you can go ~>HERE&lt;~

 Funny Face, a brand of dried cranberries focused towards the lil ones. 
 They come in four flavors -- raspberry, cherry, grape and strawberry --
My son swore they were candy, so they're a hit with the kids.
I love the resealable bags but they didn't last long around here.
I have to be honest i was a lil nervous about trying them....
I've been missing a great thing.
And Funny Face Are good for ya.
I really try to make sure i have great snacks for my kids that i don't mind them taking huge hand fulls of.

Adventures of jimmy and charlie book review

So I was thrilled to review this children's book which contains three short stories about two orphaned kittens.
The kittens, Jimmy and Charlie, go on adventures and exploring around the farm.
They find  friends with the other animals on the farm who help them learn important lessons about life. 
 I love that this book  includes life lessons that every child can benefit from.
Also helps with teaching the importance of obeying your parents.
Great read for beginning to intermediate readers ages 3-9.

 Its amazing how they simply explain to children how much God loves us, even how God protects everything including kittens.
The author, Mack, wrote these three short stories about his own pets so the book has a personal touch to it.
It even includes real life photos at the end.
 (excerpt for the book)
 “Jimmy and Charlie used to be orphaned cats with no place to call home. Until one day when the brothers find a home on a farm! The Adventures of Jimmy and Charlie is a collection of three short stories of excitement and adventure following the two cats as they explore their new world and make lifelong friends. This is the perfect book for young readers to learn, along with Jimmy and Charlie, important lessons about God’s faithfulness, his good purpose, and the importance of obeying your parents.”
My son who is eight read the book all by his self and told me what he learned and i was truly impressed. He could understand and comprehend all the lessons. Needless to say he loved it and when he was done he made sure to put it nicely on his book shelf to keep it safe.
