Mega Blocks Mommy Party

I can not even begin to tell you the excitement in our house upon receiving a giant box of Barbie Mega Blocks. I was invited to host a Mommy Party to showcase the new Barbie Mega Blocks. 

I admit that I thought Mega Blocks were more of the preschool/early elementary sized bricks, but they are actually the bricks that are about the size of Legos. 

We got a Barbie Mega Block Mansion and a Swimming Pool, plus small gifts for each girl. Each girl could have either an Ice Cream Cart kit or a Fashion Blend. Each girl definately showed their own unique style in choosing their take home kit. 

We did have a load of fun with the small kits in particular. However, for our 2 hour party, I was planning to have the girls help me build the mansion and pool and then let them play. I had no idea what an undertaking this would be. The girls are all 6 years old and they did NOT have the focus to stick with it that long. They put their mini kits together and played while my son who loves the other bricks and kits helped me assemble. Eventually, we called in my teenager and my husband to help finish. It took us just over 3 hours for the mansion. Once it was finally built, the girls came back on another day to play with it. (They had to leave before  it was finished.) 

Now that it is up and usable, they come over to play with it all the time. The mansion has rooms that are interchangeable so you can rearrange the floor-plan in many ways. They especially enjoy moving the garden to the kitchen or bathroom area. Crazy girls!!

I found the putting together to be sort of a pain, but the girls really do enjoy the finished product. The whole neighborhood of girls can be found over here on various days playing with the mansion and pool. You can find Mega Blocks on Facebook as well as online.

Some of the happy girls!!

Here is the construction and then the final product:

Welch's Giveaway - $50 in coupons

Welcome to our event.  
First I want to thank our Sponsor Welch's, who is supplying  the prize Of $50 worth of coupons for Welch's 100% Grape Juice made with concord grapes.  
This event is being hosted by Tammie's Reviews, Giveaways and More.  

I hope all of you enjoy these giveaways that I'm so excited to help co-host. I love Welch's Grape Juice and I hope you'll take a moment to visit their site. They are committed to heart health and there is a Heart Health Assessment you can take as well as information on Heart Healthy food choices and lifestyle choices. I thought the Heart Health Assessment was a wonderful tool and I encourage all of you to check it out and fill it out. 

          February is Heart Health Month.  Welch's just released a survey and the results are as follows:
The survey reports:

  • 71 percent eat dinner together as often as or more today than their families did when they were children
  • 75 percent say that, in an average week, they eat together four or more nights
  • 75 percent of families eat most meals and snacks in the kitchen
  • Only 6 percent of families say they eat in the car on the go or in a restaurant or fast food chains
  • 84 percent say that one of their favorite parts of the day is when their family eats together
  • Nearly 60 percent indicate they would rather spend time with their family or a spouse than receive a $5,000 pay raise, lose ten pounds, go on a Caribbean cruise, or get more sleep

I thought these results were pretty amazing.  Looks like the American Family is wants to be a family again.

           The event is open to residents of the U.S. only.
           This event will be live from 2/10 at 7 p.m. and ending on 2/24 at 7 p.m.

Libre Tea Event and Giveaway

Welcome to our Event.  
I would first like to thank our sponsor  Libre Tea for sponsoring this event.  Tammie's Reviews, Giveaways and More is proud to host this Event.   

From Robyn:  Have you heard of Libre Tea? They were a new discovery for me and I loved the concept and products. Libre Tea is a combination glass/poly cup/mug that allows loose tea leaves to be put into the cup. There's a stainless steel strainer at the mouth of the cup that keeps tea leaves from getting to your mouth. The glass interior keeps drinks hot or cold and the poly exterior keeps it from being too hot to handle as well as giving an extra layer of insulation. 

I normally don't drink much loose tea because getting out the tea ball, etc. is extra hassle I avoid. But with the Libre Tea glasses, I can drink loose tea without the mess and the fuss. I'm so happy to be a part of this giveaway!

           You can read Tammie's Libre Tea Review HERE.
           One winner will win a Libre Large Tea Glass.
           The dates of this event are 2/10 at 7 p.m. to 2/24 at 7 p.m.  
           Winner will be notified by email and have 24 hours to respond to that email or another will be chosen.     
           Winner will be chosen via 
           This event is open to U.S. residents only.
           All entries will be verified.

Purecussion - Indoor Drum Line - Performance

Here is the season opening performance by Purecussion, an indoor drum line. Their show, titled Recess, is a look at the antics on a playground. This was the first performance of the season and I hope to get more video as the costumes arrive, floor is finished and all three movements are performed. (Also--to the rest of the frontline and the basses--sorry, I didn't realize you weren't in the shot. I set the camera and moved away....will try again this weekend.)

These groups are more intense than most people realize. The kids give up every Saturday to rehearse and perform plus 1-2 rehearsals a week. Precision is demanded but they are required to add artistry to the precision. It's been an interesting process to watch as the kids find the balance. 

Andrew is the next to the last marimba (wooden xylophone looking instrument) on the right. He's also the one who crashes the cymbal in the opening to wake up the drummer. 

Enjoy Recess!!

Biorhythms Review and Giveaway

Have you ever seen a biorhythm chart before? I had not and it was really interesting. While I'm not sure I put much into it, I found it to be a fun and unique item. If you ever need Personalized Gifts for Anyone, Anytime, be sure to check out all the products available. 

Description of Biorhythm
"Bio" means life and "rhythm" means flowing with a regular movement. We all have three ways of operating in this world; three internal energies interacting with each other in a continuously changing pattern on a daily basis. These are our biorhythms. They are the three cycles of energy that govern the physical, emotional, and intellectual aspects of our lives: Our physical sensations, our emotions, and our ability to reason. Each of these parts has its own ups and downs.

I want to thank the folks at Because I Tried It for the chance to look at biorhythms. They offer this and many other customized products for a nominal fee. The colors and quality are outstanding and if you choose to print on your own paper, you can have a personalized and unique gift available in hardly any time.

I couldn't believe that I got my chart back within a day. Now THAT is fast! They pride themselves on fast shipping (48 hours or less) and while I know it can take longer than mine did, I was still impressed that it's 48 hours. There is even the "Instant Gift" option for those who need it now. 

The other thing I want to mention is the benefit of buying a gift from Because I Tried It. Here's a bit about the creator: She is a wife and mom to six wonderful kids! She, her hubby and their son adopted a sibling group of five just 4 years ago. Together, they help many children with things they need. Each item sold on the website that is emailed, 100% of the proceeds help children in need. What a great way to get a gift and help others at the same time. 

Would you like to receive a biorhythm for yourself or to give as a gift? Because I Tried It is offering TWO winners a free Biorhythm. Enter in the rafflecopter below.

Disclosure: I received one 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.
