Review of Korie Robertson's New Book - STRONG and KIND: And Other Important Character Traits Your Child Needs to Succeed


Duck Dynasty is not only one of my favorite shows (because I love to hunt) but, the Robertson's are one of my favorite families on TV!

Unlike many of the families you see in today's reality shows, the Robertson's are one of the few families that still let their faith and values take priority over fame and fortune. With that said, I am happy to share Korie Robertson's new book, STRONG and KIND: And Other Important Character Traits Your Child Needs to Succeed.

A Look Into Nichole Nordeman's Newest Album "The Unmaking" | Review & Giveaway

the unmaking cd

One of the things I do appreciate about my 45 minute drive to work each morning is being able to listen to my favorite gospel songs on the way in. It helps me get on the right track each morning, refresh my spirit and make sure my heart is in the right place before getting to work. Of course I enjoy listening to it throughout the day (though, I do listen to country music, too) but the mornings are the most motivational for me and sets the tone for the rest of the day. With the said, I was more than happy to be to review Nichole Nordeman's newest album, The Unmaking, released on August 28th, 2015. Even better, you'll have a chance to win a copy for yourself with the giveaway below!

Back to School with OshKosh B'gosh! #backtobgosh #BgoshJeanius

Disclosure: I participated in a Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for OshKosh B’Gosh. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Well, it's official- Miss K is officially a Kindergartener and off to school. While I am excited, I'm a little sad and scared, too. Sad that she's growing up so quickly; scared that the next 13 years of school will fly by quicker than these first five years did. With that said, she's doing well in school and I believe we are officially settled in. School supplies and school clothes are all bought, organized and we are good to go for now.

Thanks to the great folks at OshKosh our school shopping was a breeze! OshKosh is usually one of my go-to places for finding clothes for Miss K that will fit her properly and appropriately (no short shirts, skimpy shorts, ect.) This year, I purchased ALL of her school shirts there (she already had plenty of shorts from a previous shopping trip), and a few extra goodies. They have some major deals going on right now in addition to the usual great prices.  (Be sure to keep reading for a HUGE deal below and a printable coupon!)


So, let's see some of the adorable school clothes we bought!


This picture shows the majority of what we bought on our OshKosh shopping spree. All together, we purchased 5 printed t-shirts, a printed tank-top for wearing under a cute button up shirt she already has, 3 polo shirts (one not pictured because she was already wearing it) 3 pair of flip flops that she wears all the time thanks to the super-soft design (again, one pair not pictured cause she was wearing them, too), and the adorable necklace which I could not get her to take off so that I could photograph. {You explain to a mildly autistic 4 year old little girl that she has to hand over her new necklace and see how well it goes. I've learned to pick my battles wisely!}

Our Favorite OshKosh Shirt...


Our favorite shirts was the Love You to the Moon and Back Shirt  which glows in the dark!


Of course she liked them all since I let her pick out her favorite ones but, this one was her absolute favorite. They had so many to choose from that it was pretty hard to narrow it down. She definitely went for the prints that pointed out her personality- bright and fun!

And you can't forget this adorable nightgown. Yeah, I know it's not part of the school clothes but, hey, it helps her get a good night's sleep by being warm and cozy, so I figured a good night's sleep helps ensure a good day at school the next day. So see, it's justifiable. *wink-wink.*

Overall, we had a great time shopping for school clothes this year! OshKosh B'gosh definitely has the must-have's for the Fall season paired with modern heritage, making it easy to get the kids ready for school and out the door. Some of the big ideas from OshKosh this season are the B'Gosh Blue Jeans, World's Best Overalls and their new Black, White & Indigo Collection!

From bold prints to fun glowing designs, the kids will love their new clothes, especially the little fashionistas! From jeans to jackets and dresses to boots, they have all the latest fashions for boys and girls ranging from 0-12. They had cute and comfortable to layered and stylish.

And, just in case you didn't know, OshKosh also carries the necessities for school uniforms such as polo shirts in fun colors and solids such as white and navy blue. They also have khaki pants, shorts and skirts!



Lots of Deals! 

We purchased 3 polo shirts, 5 printed tee's and a cute tank-top for layering. Plus a $15 necklace that she had to have after seeing it, an adorable and super soft night gown, and three pair of flip-flops. All of that and I still managed to have a enough to donate to their #BgoshJeanius campaign, and still had a few dollars left over- all for less than $100! They currently have several AWESOME deals going on like polo shirts for $6, fun-print shirts for $7 and a huge clearance rack that had some major deals, also. 

Those adorable printed tee's have an MSRP of $16.00 but were on sale for only $7!

PLUS, as part of their #backtobgosh campaign, they are helping families save more on school clothes with 25% off! Simply print the coupon below and take it when you go.

#BgoshJeanius Campaign - Helping Kids in Need

OshKosh B'gosh has launched a national campaign to help kids get the things they need for a successful school year! From blue jeans to books, the "B'gosh Jeanius Campaign" will help raise funds for kids across the nation.

Why I Love the Nubee Infrared Digital Thermometer In the Kitchen!

I received this item for free in exchange for an honest review. This post may also contain affiliate links. 

One of the most recent kitchen gadgets I have fallen in love with is the Nubee Infrared Digital Thermometer,  Though I must admit, it's one of those gadgets I never really thought I would use until I actually got my hands on it and started to putting it to use. I mean, after all, how often do you really need an infrared digital thermometer in the kitchen? Well, now that I have one, I actually find myself needing it quite often as it is super-handy in the kitchen.

And, I'll straight up tell you that I initially agreed to review the product because I knew that it was something that Jeremy would use in his shop when working on engines and such. Never, and I mean NEVER, did I imagine I would have become attached to it and would have ended up keeping it for myself. And, neither did he. Oops!

4 AWESOME Free & Educational Online Game Sites for Preschoolers

A few weeks ago, I shared with you my thoughts on Why You SHOULD Let your Preschooler Play on the Computer. This week, I'm sharing with you 4 of the best sites for free online games for preschoolers (and toddlers), all of which I can recommend based on how educational they have been for Miss K. Plus, they are all kids-safe. No dirty adds, foul language and no links to be misguided onto other sites.

Just a little info on why I am pro-computer for preschoolers, for those of you who are not aware, Miss K will be starting kindergarten next week. Though she has never been to preschool and has always went to a private daycare, she is off to a good start and will be begin public school with a 2nd grade reading level, able to count past 100, count by 2's, 5's and 10's, evens and odds, knows all her colors, shapes and animals, and several other things that most kindergartners won't even know by the end of the school year. And when I say shapes, I mean like trapezoid and dodecahedron.
