Aoede's "Is Love A Fairy Tale?" CD

Is Love A Fairy Tale?, Aoede's unique musical story (Sep 2012), plays like an audiobook, complete with narration. It tells the story of Aoede the Muse who goes searching for love in a magical kingdom called Wonderhaven and meets colorful characters along the way each of whom tell her something about love! It is intended for tweens and young adults.

Is Love A Fairy Tale? is Aoede's third album and fifth release and is recipient of 3 Awards: Creative Child Magazine's "Preferred Choice Award-Kid's Cd Category", Tillywig Toy Award-"Sterling Fun," and Family Review Center's "Gold Award" as well as LA Music Awards-Children's Album of the Year and ISC Winner for Children's Music and John Lennon Songwriting Contest Finalist. It was considered for Best Children's Album in the 55th Annual Grammy Awards.

Very interesting and fun cd to listen to. Great for the listening pleasure of your children. I would say children around ages 6-10. The songs are fun to hear. The cd cover doesn't really portray the music inside. I thought, from the cover, that the music might be dark and mysterious. But I got fun and interesting instead. Glad I got to review this cd.

Werther’s Original Caramel Popcorn

Do you love Werther's Caramels? I absolutely love them! So when given the opportunity get to review them on my blog, I jumped on that.

Each piece of the popcorn is covered in the wonderful, creamy taste of caramel. The bags are pretty full, unlike most chip and popcorn bags. The color of each piece is a coppery color showing all the caramel covering. The taste is like Heaven in your mouth. All of these things are my opinions. But I fully recommend this popcorn. These are great for that afternoon snack, the toss in the diaper bag and go snack and those times where you just sit and relax with your cup of coffee and your caramel popcorn.

Each 8oz bag runs around $6.42 each. Werther's Caramel Popcorn is also Gluten Free! You can't beat that. You can at least still eat this fun snack if you have to eat Gluten Free items.

Finally, real caramel popcorn for real caramel lovers. Popped to perfection and covered in smooth, creamy Werther's caramel. You can find them at select retailers, including Albertsons, Giant Eagle, Weis Markets, Marsh Supermarkets, Wakefern, Big Y, Fruth Pharmacy, Dave's Market, SuperValu, Safeway, HyVee.

Extreme PR Review

Bio-Scriptives’ ExtremePR (Pain Reliever) is a non-greasy topical pain relieving lotion designed for temporary relief from minor muscle and joint aches and pains. The product’s fast onset of action reduces minor pain and stiffness and cools and relaxes muscles and joints.

My daughter was in a bad accident back in September. She was the passenger and had her belt on but still hit her head on the dashboard.

She was in quite a bit of pain and couldn't get headache relief. When my rep sent me Extreme PR to test I thought, heck why not it can't hurt. So we rubbed it on her shoulders at night and she was actually able to get some relief. It is not a pain medicine. It does not take the place of seeing a doctor. But it truly did help relieve some of the pain in her muscles.

Extreme PR was not greasy. I can not stand greasy products. Just make sure you wash your hands after applying. Each 4oz, pump, bottle is $19.99 and is totally worth it.

If you are a weigh lifter and need minor muscle relief, this would be great for you. Sit at a computer all day and your shoulders stiffen up at night? Try this instead of motrin and see if it helps.

Active Ingredients
Menthol 4.4% (found in mint)

Other Ingredients
Allantoin (naturally occuring compound), Althaea Officinalis Root (marshmallow plant), Arginine Hcl (amino acid), Cetyl Alcohol, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil (blue gum), Fucus Vesiculosus Extract (bladderwrack), Glyceryl Stearate, Isopropyl Alcohol, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, PEG-100 Stearate, Propylene Glycol, Water, and Xanthan Gum.

It's True By Mercer Mayer Book Review and Giveaway

We are on our children about telling the truth and the boy who cried wolf. It is so hard to get children to understand the logic behind telling the truth. Our older children now repeat us when talking to the younger ones. "If you just tell us the truth your punishment will be a lot less than if you lie". I do not like liars. It makes people hard to trust. This book is on lies and trust. I love Mercer Mayer books for their lessons. Each one of these Little Critter books has a wonderful moral to it.

Depending on where you purchase this book it runs from $2.99-$3.99 each.


These Little Critters are so cute and loveable that you just want to bring them home with you. Each page is full of color to keep your child's attention. These would be great for Sunday School classes, homeschooling or just for giving as gifts! Check them all out!

I received this book from Tommy Nelson to read and post my honest review.

Schucks Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch Review

Are you on the hunt during the fall season to find a neat place to take your kids? With 6 kids in the house we are always on the hunt for something fun and exciting and definitely something within our price range. The kids had so much fun! Even our 17 and 15 year olds loved it.

They had a huge sandbox full of corn. The 3 little ones had a blast playing in this.

The 3 different zip lines were fun. The kids all took turns zip lining.

They had a row of apples, a turkey and a scarecrow wood background to poke your head through and take pictures. Once you pay to get in the gate the only thing that costs is to play lazer tag or to get snacks.

Schucks has a hayride that takes you around the corn maze. The hayride is about 20 minutes long. They also have a neat ride for the kids, pulled by a tractor, you ride in barrels.

All in all our kids had a lot of fun going to the corn maze and pumpkin patch.

Check them out!

Prevagen Memory Improver Review

From the makers of Quincy Bioscience, Prevagen (pronounced “prev-uh-gen”) is a unique brain health supplement that promotes clearer thinking and improves memory. Prevagen’s main ingredient is a new use for a well-known protein called “apoaequorin” which was originally found in a certain species of jellyfish.

As we age, the body’s ability to produce essential proteins slows down. When this happens you begin to lose about 30,000 brain cells every day, and may start to experience difficulty with memory, focus and concentration. Apoaequorin has been clinically tested and shown to supplement these proteins during the natural process of aging and improves brain health and overall memory.

In 2012, Prevagen became the number one selling brain health supplement in chain drug stores across the country, and continues to remain on top. Prevagen is available in health food stores and pharmacies nationwide including Walgreen, CVS, Rite Aid, and Vitamin Shoppe.

Prevagen is safe and effective. Daily use for 30-90 days is the recommended length of time to experience noticeable results.

Learn more about Prevagen at www.prevagen.com.

My grandmother in law just passed away from Dementia. It was really hard watching her mind and memories disappear. I know that this isn't what this medicine is for but if you can improve your mind now, that sounds good to me. It has a lot of vitamins in it. So even if you only start taking it for that then maybe that will benefit your brain too. I know that I felt better while taking this, that's for sure!
