Giveaway & Review of "Old Fashioned" Book & "The Old Fashioned Way" Devotional | #OLDFASHIONEDMOVIE #FLYBY

I received the Old Fashioned Book and the Old Fashioned Way Devotional in exchange for an honest review. This post may also contain affiliate links. 


Oh my!~ I have been waiting to share this review with y'all for for a few weeks now! Not only because I enjoyed it so much but, because I also get to host a fabulous giveaway for an Old Fashioned Giveaway. One lucky winner will win a copy of the movie, book and devotional! You can enter to win below! 

Old Fashioned by Rene Gutteridge 

Old Fashioned (book)
Turning his back on his reckless lifestyle, former frat boy Clay Walsh has settled down to turn an antique shop in a small Midwestern college town....and to purse lofty and outdated theories on love and romance. But when Amber Hewson, a free-spirited woman with a gypsy soul, rents the apartment above his shop, Clay can't help being attracted to her spontaneous and passionate embrace of life. Amber also finds herself surprisingly drawn to Clay, but his ideas about relationships are unusual to say the least, and they bring to light her own deep wounds and fears about love.

 They say opposites attract, but can Clay and Amber move beyond their differences and their pasts to attempt an "old fashioned" courtship?

Space Scouts Summer Adventures 12-Week Subscription for Kids



Summer is here! The kids are out for school and of course they are excited. But the excitement will soon turn to boredom if you aren't prepared with a few handy indoor summer activities for kids, especially on hot and rainy days! One great summer activity ideas for kids is a fun day at space camp with the Space Scouts Summer Adventures 12-week subscription! For less than the cost of a craft project, your kids can enjoy a new package each week featuring a new SPACE SCOUTS. I received the Space Scouts Summer Adventures introduction pack for Miss K and I to review and I must say, 3 weeks later and she is still having fun playing with the intro package.

Find Out if You are Pregnant 6 Days BEFORE Your Missed Period with First Response

I participated in a Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for First Response. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

One of the most stressful and highly anticipated things associated with pregnancy comes in the first few weeks of trying to conceive--  finding out whether or not you are pregnant! Traditionally, a missed period is the first indicator you are pregnant and we all know that those 2-3 weeks can be some of the longest days of your life. Especially if you are anxious over the results because you are trying to conceive or, maybe even had a contraceptive "uh-oh". Thanks to the redesign and advancement of the First Response Early Detection Pregnancy Tests, you no longer have to wait until your missed period to find out whether or not you are.

First Response Pregnancy Tests helps you find out if you are pregnant 6 days BEFORE your missed period, cutting your waiting time nearly in half! And, to make it even easier to use, First Response has created a newly designed pregnancy test that not only makes testing more comfortable, but also easier, which helps to increase it's accuracy by increasing the chance of proper use and testing.

Preservation Society Home Preserves: 100 Modern Recipes by Camilla Wynne | A Modern Canning Cookbook

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


home preserves canning cookbook
If you are looking for a great canning cooking book or preserves cookbook that doesn't include the typical recipes you would find online, then you must grab a copy of Preservation Society Home Preserves: 100 Modern Recipes, by Camilla Wynne. But I must warn you, this is not the same recipes you will find in your heirloom cookbooks or online. Instead, they truly are unique canning recipes that you probably won't find elsewhere, using both traditional and more newly discovered ingredients such as buckthorn.

Lets face it, 95% of most canning cookbooks, have the same or similar recipes,which is one reason I am so excited to share my Preservation Society Home Preserves: 100 Modern Recipes review! After I finally took a leap of faith last year and started canning veggies for the first time, I now want to approach jams, jellies and more great canning recipes. 

{I mean after all, if I managed to get this far and not kill-off the family with botulism then chances are I didn't do too bad!}

Old Fashioned Movie Review & Trailer | Christian Romance #OLDFASHIONEDMOVIE

Like me, many of you have been anticipating the release of the new movie, Old Fashioned, that was released today! I was lucky enough to work with the promotion agency for both the movie and the book to get a head start and find out what the hype was really all about in order to bring you my Old Fashioned  movie review. Be sure to check out the trailer below, too!  


Old Fashioned Movie 

A romantic-drama, OLD FASHIONED centers on Clay Walsh, a former frat boy who gives up his reckless carousing and now runs an antique shop in a small Midwestern college town. There, he has become notorious for his lofty and outdated theories on love and romance as well as for his devout belief in God. When Amber Hewson, a free-spirited young woman with a restless soul, drifts into the area and rents the apartment above his shop, she finds herself surprisingly drawn to his strong faith and noble ideas, which are new and intriguing to her. And Clay, though he tries to fight and deny it, simply cannot resist being attracted to her spontaneous and passionate embrace of life. 
Ultimately, Clay must step out from behind his relational theories and Amber must overcome her own fears and deep wounds as the two of them, together, attempt the impossible: an "old-fashioned" and God-honoring courtship in contemporary America.

4 Reasons You SHOULD Let Your Child on the Computer

kids on computer
Should you let your kids play on the computer? As simple as the question is, it is very controversial subject depending on who you are talking to. Talking to different people, I have discovered that there are still several parents who don’t believe children and computers go together...

Well, I hate to break it to them but, it’s 2015 and well, if you don’t teach them how to use a computer now, you could be setting them up for failure later. Especially considering we live in a very digital and computerized world. Plus, the statistics below prove that children who are introduced to computers and technology early on excel in academics.
