I Love You All The Same Review and Giveaway

As we have 6 kids this was a perfect book. Just because you have 5 other siblings does not mean you are all the same. This book is a family of 3 bear cubs. Not one of them is the same. They don't look alike or act alike. The bear cubs even eat different things. I think this would have made a great book for foster and adoptive families. We got lucky because the tiny human we are adopting looks just like our other children. But this would be great for them. The pages all are also in rhyme. Most little ones like that. No wonder Dr. Seuss is so popular.

Features & Benefits:
•A perfect way for parents to tell their children how much they love each of them
•Great purchase for parents and grandparents looking for ways to show siblings how they are each special and unique
•Good resource to prepare big brothers and sisters for new members (and personalities!) coming into the family
•Adorable art from Alison Edgson makes this a great purchase for a baby shower, a gift for a new mom, or anytime
•A great resource for adoptive families
•Padded Board Book

This cute board book has 20 cute pages. The pages are nice and sturdy for those kids that are rough on their books.

You can purchase this from Thomas Nelson.com for $9.99

Cool Gear Mason Jar Drinking Cup Review

When this cup arrived to review, I had an all out war over who got to have this cup! Each of my teens have already made me promise to pick one up for them at Walmart or CVS.

There are 7 different designs to choose from. Each so unique and perfect for you to pick for your personality. These cost $10.99


There is even a plain colored one with no design that also comes in 5 different colors. These cost $9.99

We have spotted these and other Cool Gear products at Walmart here in Missouri. We have quite a few of their chiller cups. The girls got their Halloween ones this year and a couple of them even lit up.

Each 16oz Mason jar is very sturdy with it's double walled plastic. The graphics will not fade since they are inside the plastic. We put ours in the top shelf of the dishwasher. I would not put on the bottom shelf.

Just because these look like canning jars, these are not meant for canning.

The straws that come with these cups are nice and heavy duty. Although my daughter loves mustaches so she had to add her own straw. Hey maybe mustaches should be Cool Gears next design!

Definitely check out all their other cups and containers!


They have numerous designs and sizes, too many to list. We have lots of them and are very very pleased with the quality and price of each one.

Definitely check this company out, you will not be disappointed!





Five Lil Bass In Tow was sent this Cool Gear Mason Jar to test and post my honest review. Thanks for reading!

SCENSIBLES Review + Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Such a great idea, especially for teens. We have bags to keep from leaving dog poop on the ground, bags for diapers when out in public so perfect that now they have them for feminine hygiene products. The Scensibles product should be something, in my opinion, that pediatricians offices should hand out for girls first periods. This might make it a little less embarrassing for your girl. I have 2 teens plus myself that use these products. The girls stalls get pretty nasty smelling with girls products. When you use Scensibles they have a light scent to them. You just put your used pad or tampon in then and tie it off. Ready to throw in the trash :) Much more discrete.

SCENSIBLES are specially designed scented personal-size oxo-biodegradable plastic bags for clean, easy, discreet disposal of feminine care products: sanitary pads, tampons, panty liners, personal wipes and bladder control pads.

Stylish opaque pink on pink flower pattern helps
to mask the product inside

additive to reduce odors

Simple to use-tie handles to conceal waste and toss in the trash

A trouble-free alternative to flushing products down the toilet
to avoid expensive plumbing repairs

Eases concerns of contact with germ-infested stall receptacles
in public restrooms
Eliminates the need to wrap products in extra toilet paper or tissue

Perfect solution for travel and all outdoor adventures

Helps avoid pets rummaging through the garbage

High density poly, 1 ml thick
3 3/8” x 9 ¾” x 2” gusset

Award winning packaging with bright colors, simple stripes and contemporary flowers contains 50 interleaved bags for easy one-bag dispensing from the removable center perforation. Travel packs available with 3 bags in each.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
