Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango Body Wash #GetNoticed Giveaway



Disclosure: "The Dial" Brand provided me with a sample of Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango body wash in exchange for a product review. However, all opinions expressed are my own. 

Look at the very cool box that arrived in my mailbox recently. I love the Dial family of products and my daughter and I were thrilled to get the Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango Body Wash as a sample to try. When we opened the box and smelled the body wash, she announced, "It smells like summer." Who doesn't want a little bit of summer year round? I like the Dial body wash products because it's truly a family body wash. Even my boys didn't complain that the smell was 'too girly'. I think that's a great success. 


Dial's nourishing body wash helps with skin care. My kids loved this because of the delicious scent. I liked it because they USED the body wash in order to get really clean. I love both the scent and the way my skin feels clean and fresh after I've used it. I don't know about you, but Dial products have been a part of my body care routine since I was a small child. My mother and grandmother both used Dial products in their homes and I continue that tradition.


What is even better than a bottle of Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango Body Wash for my family? How about the chance to win a bottle for yourself. I was given a free coupon to give away to one of you. Please be sure to fill out the entry form below. 







For the giveaway:
  • Limit one set of entries per household.
  • Open to the US only
  • Giveaway ends Friday, September 5


Good luck!

The Zcan+ is all the talk in the tech world as this mouse is sure to help even the most nontechnical person. You can read Tammie's review of it by going HERE.

This product usually retails for $99.00.

So who wouldn't want something as easy as this? I can see all sorts of applications in my own life. I spend a lot of time meeting folks in coffee shops or other places where we don't have access to a scanner or printer. It would be so handy to be able to scan and save documents to print later when back at home--or to save the file and email to everyone in the meeting. Since our scanner has been on the fritz for a couple years, this would be a handy way to solve the scanning problem at my house as well. 

Would you like to win one for yourself?

Sea Life Aquarium in Kansas City #Review and #Discount

Disclosure: I was provided free tickets to Sea Life in exchange for my review. All thoughts and opinions are my own and no other compensation was provided.




Sea Life Aquarium is one of the newest hot spots in Kansas City in the Crown Center area of downtown. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to find using our handy GPS. When we arrived, we followed the signs to park at the Crown Center Mall. Take your parking ticket with you as you enter Sea Life and they will validate your parking for 6 hours (which is longer than any of the stores in the mall will validate for). The free parking was terrific so we could relax and really take our time and enjoy all of the rooms and activities.


I was pleased to see this sign when we arrived.
This means animals are well cared for. 

There are about ten different rooms where you can view different species of sea creatures. We couldn't believe how beautiful the school of fish was in the first room. At first, this viewing window was empty, then all of a sudden, a whole school of fish swam through. 



I like the shark tank and the tunnel. While it's shorter and smaller than the Omaha Zoo shark tunnel, it was still fun to be surrounded by sharks on all sides.
Selfie with the sharks.
Family Selfie

The "touching" tide pool was very fun for kids of all ages. Rebekah LOVED petting the starfish. So did I! I didn't realize how hard they are on top when they are in the water. The underside is soft, but the top is definitely a protective skin. We also got to touch some sea cucumbers, there were shrimp--but they were too skittish to touch--and other animals in the pond. The staff member was very knowledgeable and answered our (endless) questions patiently and completely. With five museum buffs in our family, she earned her pay that afternoon. 




One of the things the kids (and their parents) liked the most was the Quiz Trail for kids. This is really meant for the 13 & under crowd, but Andrew was a good sport and did a quiz trail, too. Mostly, he helped his sister find answers without her realizing he was leading her to the answer. Good job! If you find all 10 of the trail markers and answer the questions, you get a prize at the end. The younger kids were thrilled with their prize - a medal from Sea Life Aquarium. 



Here are some pictures of the fish, the viewing tubes/bubbles, etc. There is so much to see and do--we had a great time. And even though we come from a city with a top zoo and aquarium, I was surprised at how much we learned and how fun Sea Life was. We didn't think it would compare to our zoo--but it was different. We had a terrific time and hope to have another Kansas City adventure at Sea Life (and Legoland--watch for that review, too) soon. 







In addition to all the rooms and the bubbles and tunnels, there are several VERY kid friendly areas. There's a movie theatre where you can watch and learn about Gertrude the Turtle (who we saw in a tank--she's doing well) and how they saved her. She was tangled in fishing line and ended up having a leg amputated. She's happy in the Sea Life Aquarium home. 

There's also a play area at the end where the kids had a great time. I didn't get any photos (they were moving too fast). Also a room where they can watch sharks from all sides and even look into the tank from a viewing platform above. That particular room also has Lego tables where you can add to the Lego Sand Castles. The kids had loads of fun.  

Would you like to save $3 per ticket on your visit? Be sure to print the discount coupon and take it with you. It is valid through 12/31/14 so you still have time to go and save.

What Would You Do--Then and Now #SensoryBlogHop

Have you ever seen the show "What Would You Do?" It's a hard hitting show that sets up scenes to see how people react. The show is hosted by John QuiƱones and he gets people to ask of themselves some pretty tough questions. 

I love that show but haven't gotten to see every episode. I saw a post last week on a friend's facebook page that said,
"While [my son] doesn't have a diagnosis of autism, he does have some difficulties including not being the "nice little well behaved child who sits still and doesn't make a sound". We don't go out much. And never out to eat. Causes too much anxiety for me because of people like that "diner". The other diners give me hope."


Then I watched this episode from "What Would You Do?" It's one I've never seen before. And I cried...a lot...

So what would you do in that situation? I don't have to wonder...I know. Because my second child has autism. And when he was 3-4-5 years old, eating out was it's on circle in Dante's Inferno. I know the horror of being stared at, nobody ever 'said' words to us, but we got 'the look'. I knew people were whispering about us. We were the center of attention. It was hard. It was embarrassing, and it wasn't really much fun and eating out wasn't a 'break' from cooking. It was a different kind of work.


My husband and I had a game plan each week. Who would 'eat fast' and who would stay? If you were eat fast, you didn't take care of kids or anything--you ate...fast. Because the moment Nathan started to cry, melt down, get loud, etc.,  you had to move. You had to take him out of the building, walk the parking lot, sit in the car, do whatever it took for the next 30 minutes to keep him from disturbing everyone else in the place so the rest of the family could eat. If you stayed, you had to fill pop cups, get napkins, help feed remaining kids, but you got to relax and enjoy the meal more than the 'eat fast' parent.


We went out every Sunday after church. It's a tradition in our family--one that dates back to my own childhood. I wasn't willing to give up one meal out a week and lose that tradition in my life. So we made it work. This is when we didn't know Nathan had autism--we were told (repeatedly) that he did not have autism. Often we were told he didn't have problems, but screaming and crying in restaurants doesn't seem normal either.


Once we had his diagnosis, it explained the 'why' of his behaviors, but we refused to let autism be an excuse for cancelling this one tradition we were clinging to. And, over a very long time, he got better at it. He learned some tools and coping skills. We bought earplugs that he could wear in noisy restaurants. Just $2.69 wax earplugs from the store and we could avoid crisis mode for an additional period of time.


Today we eat out a lot--probably more than a lot of other families. Not that it's a good thing in some ways. But it's a good thing for us that I don't take for granted. So watching this episode (which is old because the new numbers are 1 in 68...not 1 in 88) brings back a lot of memories for me. I again feel the shame, the horror, the dread of waiting for someone to tell us to leave and not come back. And I cry. I cry for those who are in the trenches right now like my friend who posted this clip. I cry for those who defend the boy in the restaurant. I cry because I have lived and breathed the Autism Society of Nebraska since mere weeks after he was finally diagnosed. I sit on the state board, I go to DC and lobby for other kids with autism, I work to make connections and cultivate contacts so we can promote not just awareness, but acceptance and inclusion. 


And, as a method of catharsis, I joined this blog hop. Check out the other articles, you will be amazed at these incredible people.

Enough: 10 things we should be telling teenage girls #Review #Giveaway

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my review.


Have you heard of the new book called ENOUGH: 10 things we should be telling teenage girls? You haven't--well, you need to check it out. I don't care if you are male or female, young or old, teenager or not, everyone should be required to read this book. I'm in total love with Kate Conner and her down to earth wisdom. 

This book happened after a blog post about this subject gained over 2 million views in two weeks. Her list of #10Things sounds so simple, but truth rings through. Here is one of my personal favorites: 

How many times have you wanted to tell someone that Facebook/Twitter/Insert name here isn't wasting your time...YOU are wasting your time? I have that feeling quite often. And the way she explains each of these 'bullet points about life' really makes sense. It's not preachy and it's not condescending. It comes from her heart and her concern and reasons are valid and meaningful. 


Another favorite:
Enough said.

Would you like the opportunity to read Kate's book for yourself?

Children's Claritin Playmaker Playdate

Disclosure: I was provided a Playmaker Playdate Kit in exchange for sharing about Children's Claritin. 

How has your summer been? Allergies getting to you? In the midwest, we thought we were going to have a little allergy break--nope, we were wrong. It's been a strong pollen summer and cooler temps have meant more regional plant pollen. How do we handle seasonal allergies with Children's Claritin for our kids. Once a day and non-drowsy formula helps reduce the effects of allergens. 

I was excited to be able to host a Children's Claritin Playmaker Playdate. We got these cute bags from Children's Claritin with a notepad (magnetic for my fridge) and coupons to use. The bag is ingenious. You tuck it into the corner and it has a pull cord to keep it tiny and small. I toss it into my purse, beach bag or the car when we're heading out. If clothes/shoes get dirty or sandy, I can toss them in the bag. Or if the kids find treasures to bring home, we've got a handy bag for them. 

For our playdate, we combined a fun water day with talking about Children's Claritin. Did a giant water fight and let the kids bring their squirt guns and other water toys. Lots of fun in the sun, lots of water, and lots of smiles. 



All in all, we had an amazing time. And all the coupons were taken by moms wanting to try out Children's Claritin for themselves. And best of all, a great water play date.

I don't know about you, but where I live, we are full swing in "Back to School" mode. We're getting backpacks filled, tissues and hand sanitizer purchased and working on the...gulp...dreaded back to school shopping with a pre-teen and teenaged boy (and a girl who adores trying on every piece of clothing in sight). There are some amazing companies listed here for both clothing and gear for kids. I have a special place in my heart for Gymboree (even though 2 of my 3 have outgrown even their biggest sizes). My kids were all Gymboree kids. The clothing held up wash after wash, was coordinated and just darn tootin' cute.

I have also had good experiences with Ibiley uniforms. While we don't have uniforms at our school, I've picked up some Ibiley pants at consignment sales and they hold up--especially the knees of the pants for boys. Moms of boys, I know you understand.

My other shout out goes to the Tea Collection. I've only had a few of their pieces, but I love the whimsy and the fun patterns. I look forward to getting more from them in the future.

Persecuted Book Review and #Giveaway



Persecuted by Robin Parrish was an enthralling read. I am not usually into political thrillers, but this one is so plausible that I was drawn in from the first page and couldn't put it down until the very end. There are so many pieces of this book that are familiar as things happening in current news media. But the way Robin Parrish weaves the details together totally blew my mind. He makes reality and fiction combine into a powerful story where corruption is ruling the day and nobody realizes it. 

John Luther could be any one of us. We've all done things that we regret, things we wish we wouldn't have done. His past may be filled with deeper regrets like drugs and alcohol, but I could empathize with wanting to leave some things from your past in the past. When he is framed for murder and has to go on the run, I'm amazed at how well he is able to do so. From that moment onward, I was compelled to keep reading. And now, the film of "Persecuted" has opened in theaters. I'm looking forward to seeing it live on the big screen. 
About the book:The Question Is Not IF Attempts Will Be Made to Limit Religious Freedoms, But WhenJohn Luther, simply wants to share the Gospel and enjoy a quiet life with his family. He never asked to be at the center of a political controversy, but an ill wind has been blowing through the halls of Congress, and supporters of a new religious-equality bill see Luther's endorsement as critical.  When Luther refuses to lend his support, he unknowingly sets in motion an explosive plan bent on destroying his reputation and undermining everything for which he stands. His once-normal life is turned upside down as he becomes a fugitive left with only one dangerous option--putting everything he holds most dear at risk while he fights to expose the truth. It is a mission that brings him face-to-face with the coming storm of persecution that could threaten the very fabric of our nation's freedoms.
Buzz about the film:

 "Bringing the battle of FREE SPEECH to light." FoxNews
"House of Cards for the religious sect." - POLITICO
"A big thumbs-up." - American Family Association

Petbrosia Dog or Cat Food

This giveaway is being hosted by Tammie's Reviews, Giveaways and More, promoted by Coolestmommy's Coolest Thoughts and sponsored by Petbrosia.

Our favorite dogs in the world are Gretchen & Lovey. Both dogs need to have a grain-free diet because they have sensitive stomachs. It has been wonderful to see how playful they are again now that they are eating grain-free food. It has made a wonderful difference in their lives. We haven't gotten to try Petbrosia for the dogs, but were excited to learn about this option for dog and cat food from Tammie.

Papio Fun Park Review - 2014 Summer Fun


I was provided with free passes in exchange for my review.




What's more fun than a barrel of monkeys? My family of monkeys thinks Papio Fun Park is barrels of fun. The excitement starts from the moment we pull up. You can see the go karts racing. And you know you'll be in them soon. Then as you walk inside, you hear the kids jumping on the jump shot and in the space ball (trampoline games). You can see the excitement building on all of my kids faces (including the big kid - my husband). 


Need Mom? Look for her on the Go Karts.


We are so happy that we had a chance to try out the Extreme wristband. For one low price, you get unlimited go karts, miniature golf, laser tag, space shot, jump shot and water wars. We added up all that we did on our extreme wristbands and if we would have purchased everything individually, it would have cost more than the wristbands. The go karts are my favorite and I rode 6 times. Would have been 7 if the kids wouldn't have caught me sneaking in 'just one more time'. 


Fun on the golf course.


Extreme wristbands are an awesome way to have all of the fun for a low price, but did you know that Wednesdays throughout summer are $12 Extreme wristband day? AND--Extreme wristbands are 1/2 price after 6:00 p.m.


EVEN BETTER--with an exclusive special offer through US Family Guide, all of Coolestmommy's readers get BOGO wristbands. Click here to get your Buy One Wristband, Get One Free at Papio Fun Park. 


Rebekah loves Water Wars
So does Nathan (Andrew prefers not to be photographed but he loves it, too.)

Three piece Fresh Fruit Bowl #Giveaway

10463987_10152171027888848_1045894496375442039_n

Coolestmommy's Coolest Thoughts is pleased to offer this giveaway which is hosted by Tammie's Reviews, Giveaways and More and sponsored by Good Cook. The 3 piece Fresh Fruit Bowl is only available from Bed Bath and Beyond.

I love fresh fruit and find I eat so much better if I keep fresh fruit on hand. I don't know about you, but when I purchase watermelons or other melons, I have trouble keeping them fresh long enough to eat all of them. I often have to toss the last of the melons because it got gross or spoiled before our family could eat all of it. So finding out about this bowl is incredible. I can't wait to go purchase and try it for myself. 

From Tammie: Summer is here and for me that means cookouts, vacations and fresh fruit. I love all things fresh fruit. I do not thing there is a kind of fresh fruit that I would not eat. I love to visit my Mother-In-Law as she always has a bowl of fruit salad in her fridge. I have noticed that the fresh cut fruit started to taste funny- soggy and old. I do not know if you know what I am talking about but I was just introduced to a 3-piece fresh fruit bowl that I can only describe it as amazing. It keeps watermelon and cut fruit fresher longer. The 3 -piece fresh fruit bowl comes with a large bowl that sits in another bowl that collects the liquid from the first bowl and a lid. This product is only available at Bed Bath and Beyond.
