Almost a year without posting anything...and so much I want to share!

I have gotten way too accustomed to posting everything on my social media, the short version, a cute picture and a little bit of description with some attention seeking hashtags,  and even limiting a lot of my personal contact with people to messaging. It does work for me, because I am able to take care of whatever is going on in my home at the moment, such as child care kiddos, my Jeff, etc.  and come back and answer whomever I was "talking" with, or even respond to comments on my posts and everyone understands. But when I see my sweet almost 3 year old granddaughter take our house phone, which is literally a wireless landline phone, when her Mommy called, and held it out looking at it saying, "I can't see you Mommy" , I knew that not only am I truly a senior citizen, but I am losing touch with the basics.

When I started this blog, I mainly wanted to post about deals that I wanted to share with my friends, or deals we personally had gotten between couponing or just being at the right place at the right time, or about my growing family...Grandkids!  Then when I was given the opportunity to review items, I loved doing that here as well, or even sharing a good recipe. But I do not have any type of niche, or desire to have one actually. I would like to start posting again. Mainly because someday, my grandchildren might want to look back and see what a blog was, and what was their Grandma doing with one, lol.

I will end this post with an updated picture of my six Virginia grandchildren...and will follow up soon with pictures of ALL TEN of my grandchildren! 

To use a well known phrase that really fits with this picture, as in, how precious and sweet they appear in it, lol, "I am too blessed to be stressed" .

#Eraorganics skin care line #review

     We have tried and loved the baby care line from E raorganics so were really excited to have the opportunity to test their skin care line.

     As soon as I received the products, I contacted my adult daughter to see if she wanted to try them out and she jumped at the chance. Now my daughter is a wonderful mother to my 6 grandchildren, an awesome wife to my son in law, and has a good head on her shoulders, but sometimes she just does not think things through, like her mother.

     The products I gave her to try are the e raorganics Microdermabrasion Face Scrub & Facial Mask in One- Manuka Honey Walnut Natural Face Exfoliator  , which she used first and said smelled wonderfully, and made her skin feel smooth, soft and it just felt good.

     The next product was the E raorganics 10-in-1 Facial Moisturizer with Aloe Vera and Manuka Honey , which she also said this smelled so nice, and she proceeded to apply it, RIGHT AFTER THE SCRUB. I am sure that anyone that reads this knows exactly what happened,  it burned, because of course a good scrub opens up your pores and does exactly what it says...SCRUBS your skin. Anyway, after washing her face with cold water, and waiting a bit, she then reapplied the moisturizer and said that it was silky smooth and she loves it.

     Finally, she was very excited to try the E raorganics Dead Sea Mud Mask with Organic Aloe Vera, Shea Butter, Manuka Honey & Hemp Oil Spa Quality Face Mask . And being the awesome mommy that she is, and also to show that this skin care line is so wonderful, it is safe enough to use on all ages...she used the mud mask not only on herself, but on her six children as well.

     We love the E raorganics skin care line and know that if you try it, you will feel the same way.

I received these products at a discount, but all opinions here are mine, and/or my daughters.

Our #Tryazon #KaskeyKids Super Bowl Party

      We were so excited to be one of the lucky families chosen by Tryazon to host a Kaskey Kids Super Bowl Party!

      We are huge New York Giants fans in our home, but sadly they did not make it to the Super Bowl, so we  just enjoyed the game, commercials, half time show and awesome food.

    The Kaskey Kids Football Guys were a huge hit with the children. Of course they enjoyed "playing football" with them, but I was really pleased at how they would request to use the football guys with our special learning activities. They were used for counters, they added them to one of our sensory bins and they liked using them for matching games. There has not been one day since we received them, that they haven't asked to get them out.

      The children set up a couple of the teams on the table while they were having their snacks in their football shaped bowls.

     It was really fun having the surprise boxes to let them take home. They talked about which football guys they got for days after the party!

The Football Guys are so fun, sturdy and versatile, I can see us playing with them for years to come!  Kaskey Kids  has lots of other sports sets as well, including baseball, basketball, soccer and hockey.

Disclosure: We were provided with free Kaskey Kids Football Guys to play with and share, but all opinions are my own and the fun was real. I am a member of Tryazon where you can apply to host partiesand try out products for free.
