Dreamtreaders Book 2: Search For the Shadow Key Review and Giveaway





What kid hasn't wanted to be able to go into their dreams? Dreams are such a curious thing. What did my dream mean, was it just nothing and I showing my feelings by my actions in my dreams? So many questions. I think that Wayne Thomas Batson, the author, did a great job. I think his imagination is amazing.


Some Doors Should Never Be Opened


Archer Keaton is a dreamtreader. What this means is that he can explore dreams. Archer is the last dreamtreader alive. He is all alone to protect the Dream. There is a company called Dream Inc that allows the rich to "go into the dream world". But is seems to be falling apart. So before the dream world and the real world collide and fuse together, Archer must save it.

I don't want to give too much of the story as to give it all away. But this is a definite purchase.

This sci-fi book is great! Search For the Shadow Key keeps you on your seat to the very end. My 14 year old is my youth reader, for my blog. She is very honest about her books. You will definitely know if she doesn't like the book. The first in the series was a little slow for her, but this one was suspenseful and full of action.

Search For the Shadow Key was a great read also in that it has important things to learn. The importance of resisting temptation, making sure that you make wise choices and being a light for Christ in a dark world. None of this lessons are always easy to follow. Especially as teens.

I love that there are books like this that keep my teens busy and yet do not have the filth that comes with most teen books.

Milk Nanny Coming Soon!




Whose turn is it? Oh the dreaded times of getting out of bed in the wee hours of the night (several times every night) to make the babies bottle! Or your baby is crying and wants to be fed like NOW! Been there, done that twice! Typically, parents make a bottle of milk for their babies between the ages of 0-3 about 4,000 times, including approximately a thousand late night feedings! Now there is an easier way to make bottles for parents who feed their babies formula and it’s called Milk Nanny.

Milk Nanny is the first fully-automatic appliance to make fresh, warm baby formula milk in just 15 seconds. The coolest thing about it….Milk Nanny can also be remotely controlled with a mobile phone. Parents simply connect to Milk Nanny with their mobile device via Wi-Fi, and they’re ready to start making milk. Milk Nanny knows exactly how much water and powder is needed to make a perfect bottle. Parents will finally be able to skip the daily chore of measuring and scooping formula from a can into a bottle, mixing with water and shaking it to get “most” of the clumps out.

Current milk making machines on the market today can’t be started remotely, they produce clumpy milk, they’re not self-cleaning, and don’t look very nice sitting on your kitchen counter. The Milk Nanny will change all of that! The Milk Nanny has a MSRP of $199.00 and will be available to the public in May 2015. Check out Milk Nanny

All's Fair in Love and Cupcakes Book Review




Kat is a baker who normally bakes with the simple vanilla and chocolate, safe recipes. Her guy friend Lucas feels that it is time for her to step "out of the box" and start making different items. He then enters Kat into a baking contest. If she wins she will not only get to work at a prestigious bakery, she will have to go to New York. Lucas wants her to win, but doesn't want to her to move, as he is falling in love with her. It is a decent book but I think it could have been so much better. These 2 characters complain a lot and not a lot of monologue. I would have rather had them talk to each other, date and fall in love. It was hard to follow the characters to the end. I think this writer has a lot of potential. I will look out for her next book.

You can purchase this book from Amazon for $10.23 on paperback

Berenstain Bears and The Biggest Brag Book Review


Super cute book filled with a great lesson to learn.

We have 6 kids, so learning lessons is a daily accomplishment in our house. The little ones haven't really learned what happens to others feeling when you brag. They still run around "mommy got me a cake pop today". While the other littles are like "why didn't I get a cake pop". It's hard. But the Berenstain Bears are here to help. Just follow as Brother and Sister Bear learn this very important lesson.

Looking for great kids books with a Christian base, these are the books for you. Grandpa shows the bears that God gives us many talents but there is not any need for bragging about it.

About the Author

Mike Berenstain grew up watching his parents, Stan and Jan, working together to write and draw these lovable bears. Eventually he started drawing and writing about them too.


I grew up reading the Berenstain Bears and learned many of their lessons. At the end of each book there is a section that helps kids understand the lesson just taught, in the story.

You can purchase this book from Amazon for $3.99

http://www.amazon.com/Berenstain-Bears-Biggest-Living-Lights/dp/0310734797/ref=tmm_pap_title_0?ie=UTF8&qid=1423164285&sr=1-1

First they have the Delicious Pink


Country – Italy

Alcohol by Volume – 9.5%

Tasting Notes:

This pleasant fresh tasting rose wine has terrific mouth feel and wonderful fruity floral aromas. It has a pleasant finish and is a great wine with or without food.


When I opened the bottle the scent was very inviting! The Delicious Pink has a smooth taste to it. It was not a harsh wine. This specific wine would be a nice addition to a succulent steak dinner.

Nuby Dishwasher Basket Review


This was such a needed item, in our house!! Between bottles and sippy cups it's an endless fight to keep them from falling to the bottom and melting. Has that happened to you?


The unique design lets nipples stay in the correct spot. Also the sippy leak stoppers will fit in the spots well. It is super nice to still have the pieces when the wash is over. I also like not having the boil them just to get the pieces clean.


I put the basket on the top shelf so that they don't get too hot.


You can purchase these in dark blue or light blue from Buy Baby Direct

https://buybabydirect.com/dishwasher-basket

for $3.99 plus shipping

I will definitely be using this when the grandbaby gets here! We will have a toddler and a grandbaby so a dishwasher basket is a necessity!

If you are an older person with medical needs this also might serve great for the syringes and other smaller items that get lost in the dishwasher.

Superior Source Vitamins Review



Superior Source has just about any vitamin you could be looking for.


Superior Source not only has vitamins but they have Stevia and Lip Balms


The Stevia is a sugar substitute that can be used in all cold and hot beverages.

Directions: Use as an herbal dietary supplement, 1/3 level teaspoon tastes like 1 level teaspoon of sugar. Sprinkle on food or stir into beverage, vary amount to suit taste.

The 9.2oz bottle serves around 315 serving!

My kids favorite item from Superior is the Vitamin C melts


Each bottle contains 90 melts. Each melt has 500 mg of vitamin c. Great vitamin to take on a daily basis during cold and flu season. Anything to keep away the nasty's.
