Super Wubble Ball Brite Review

Wubble is introducing a new fun ball to their line up. The Super Wubble Ball Brite. It’s a Wubble ball but it lights up different colors.

When we first got it my kids were so excited they loved all the Wubble Balls we have received in the past. With this ball they were more excited because they could play with it at night and not have to worry about seeing where the ball went and finding it. They had a blast playing with the Super Wubble Ball Brite.

Unfortunately some downsides we noticed. The ball only lights up for 20 seconds before you have to hit the button again. The button to light up the ball is rather hard to get to without risking putting a hole in the Wubble ball. For us we got about 45 minutes of play before our first hole arrived. We patched it and had a little more playtime before the ball deflated. The texture of the ball seemed a little different then the original Wubble Ball.When the ball was inflated it seemed just a bit heavier, but I’m sue that that is from the lighting mechanism.

Overall its a good ball if your very careful and don’t want to worry about the ball lighting up. Its just you have to pinch the ball to get to the lighting mechanism, that is what was the major cause of the hole in our ball. Lighting it up to much. The good thing about Wubble balls is they are easy to patch small holes.

You can buy the Super Wubble Ball Brite at retailers Nationwide or on their website.

Biz Stain Fighter Helps Fight the toughest

I have been chosen to be a Biz Stain Fighter ambassador again for the 2017 year. I am excited to tell u all about their products and what they have to offer.

Biz was the first enzyme based pre-soak and color-safe bleach that Moms have trusted to remove stains from the family’s laundry, for more than 40 years. Different types of stains need different ingredients to clean them. Science shows that there is no one single ingredient that cleans everything well. So why doesn’t every brand put all of these ingredients in? Probably because it costs more to do that. But BIZ didn’t cut corners here… BIZ has more stainfighters than other brands. That’s why it works better.

As a mom of three I am doing laundry daily not to mention soaking and treating daily stains my kids come home with. It’s a constant daily struggle with stains in my house, so I use Biz Stain Fighter with every wash.

Biz Stain Fighter

The toughest stain in my house right now is pasta sauces.My kids love pasta and always seem to be wearing light colored clothing when they eat it. Making a big mess and staining their clothes. Usually I will have to put some biz with hot water in a bowl and let it sit over night then wash with more biz but gets the job done.

Biz is great for other uses to like it will treat stains set into your carpet or upholstery. So its great to have on hand for any occasion.

Have you used Biz Stain fighter?

Just Dance 2017 is Perfect For Family Time

It’s the holiday season and that means family time. My kids love their electronics and phones so I have to find something that we can share but will keep them entertained. Every year we play the Just Dance games together and have a blast. Just Dance 2017 was just released last month and we can’t get enough of it.

The game features all the newest and hottest songs of the year plus some old favorites like Hips Don’t Lie.

Some of my favorite tracks are:

Fifth Harmony FT.Kid Ink Worth It
DNCE Cake By The Ocean
Silento Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)
Justin Beiber Sorry

You can play together with up to 4 players. The game is so much fun, but a little hard to get the dance moves the first time around. I have been having challenges with my kids, and I always lose. LOL!
Just Dance 2017 is also a great way to stay in shape, I have been playing daily while the kids are in school to help keep my energy up and stay in shape.

Biz Stainfighter Works on Carpets, Cars and More

Biz Stainfighter has been helping my kids clothes stay perfect and clean throughout the school year. Lets face it, they are messy and their clothes get stained like crazy. Biz Stainfighter has been getting out the stains through pretreating nd also adding a cup load into the wash.

Biz also works great on other items that can’t fit into the washing machine though, like carpets. upholstery and cars.

We tried Biz Stainfighter on a purple marker stain that has been sitting on our carpet for a couple months. It definitely lightened up the stain, but not completely removing it. It looks so much better now though.

Learning My family History

Moving back to where I was born (California), has been a challenge for me. I left good friends and I loved the East Coast. Since I have been here though I have been learning so much about my family History and am excited about what I am learning.

My maiden name is Cunningham and we are Scottish of course. I am learning that my family dates all the way back to MacBeth. How cool is that?

Some of the things I knew about my family were already impressive like the Golden Gate park and how my great great great uncle designed and built it, plus he lived there as a keeper until his death. They even have a statue and many memorials to him at the park.

Family History

It’s so crazy, but learning more about John McLaren made me realize just how much we resemble and some similarities in traits.

Another fun thing I have learned they have out here in California is several Scottish Highlands festivals and games. In fact there is one coming up in a month, and I can’t wait to attend.

I even got in contact with the person that runs the Cunningham booth at the games and it turns out she is a distant cousin. So I can’t wait to meet everyone and learn more about my family. Plus all the Clan Cunningham gear I get to see.

Meeting Family For the First Time In Years

So it has been exactly 2 months since I moved back to my home state of California. I’ll admit I didn’t want to come and a big part of me is still urging to go back to the North East. I haven’t been to California in 10 years and even then I didn’t see 97% of my family when I came.

This last week has been relaxing and hard at the same time for me. I have been visited by my parents separately of course, but haven’t seen my father in 12 years and he has never met my children. My mother in 8 years. So it was a enjoyable but kind awkward at the same time. I have just been gone so long.

DSCN3890

While my mother was down we decided to visit some of my aunts and uncles, as well as cousins. This just made it a bit harder on me as I met so many people I never even knew existed. I haven’t seen this side of my family since the year 2000, and even then that was for a funeral.

It was great seeing everyone, and all were shocked to see more. After all I am a grown woman now with a family of my own.

Have you ever gone a extended period of time without seeing family?

*** Went to my family reunion and it was a blast, but I do admit that I didn’t know who a few of my cousins were it has just been that long.

Biz gets out the Toughest Stains on Summer Clothes

As a mom of three I go through tons of laundry a week. Specially if my kids stain their clothes, I want to pre-treat the stain immediately. With Biz Stain fighter I always know that my kids clothes will come out clean.

This summer has been a fun one, with lots of swimming and sports, with that comes a lot of laundry and grass stains. Stains can be really tough to get out, even simple food stains, and knowing my kids they like to rub them in and make them worse.

Biz was the first enzyme based pre-soak and color-safe bleach that Moms have trusted to remove stains from the family’s laundry, for more than 40 years. Different types of stains need different ingredients to clean them. Science shows that there is no one single ingredient that cleans everything well.

That’s why it works better.

Not only do I use Biz to pre treat stains, I also use 1 cup in every load I wash just to give it that extra boost. My clothes look bright and are stain free I just love it.

Aces Sunglasses For Kids Are Perfect For Summer.

We just moved to California and it’s so hot and bright here. I mean that literally I feel like the sun is so much brighter here. I can’t leave the house without sunglasses, and my kids complain if they don’t have them also. My kids grow so fast that I am buying them sunglasses constantly and they need a good pair that will last for a while and won’t break. I was recently introduced to Aces Sunglasses for my kids and they are just what we needed.

We are in California

DSCN3604

As I had mentioned before we decided to move 3000 miles from Connecticut to California for better opportunities. Well as of this weekend we are here. I haven’t lived in California for 23 years and it’s a real system shock.
Everything is different and even my favorite restaurants i’ve missed the food isn’t the same.

I am getting use to everything again from the time change, to the weather, skin changes, etc.

The weather here is gorgeous compared to the east coast, but it’s super hot and I am seriously missing the green grass and trees of the East Coast. Plus I am having trouble remembering that every time I go outside I need sun tan lotion and sun glasses. Yes it is that bright outside.

In combination with the sun block and heat, different environment I now have acne issues again. It is driving me crazy, but I hope it’s just a summer thing and will pass.

There are a few things in California that I have learned to love and that I just don’t get at all.

I love that I am around my family again. Although sometimes it can be a lot of Drama, it’s great knowing I have a support system.

I love being so close to San Fransisco and getting to see the sights and some opportunities it brings. Plus where I live everything is newer and pretty.

Dont get:

There is a serious budget problem for schools here. little to no money and I just found out that our new school district dropped there bus program in 2007. So the money that was going to that would go towards education.
I guess I get that education is more important, but it makes it so inconvenient in so many ways.
It’s a pain for me, since we don’t have second car and my kids are young I don’t trust them walking on their own.
The bay area already has a traffic problem and big pollution problem. So instead of having say a couple hundred busses for kids in the district, they would rather have thousands of parents driving their kids to school.

Everything is so spread out. From where I live there is nothing in a reasonable walking distance. All fast food and stores are at least 5 or more miles. We have a Safeway closer but that stores is a bit pricey.

Overall I haven’t made my final decision on my true thoughts on California. It’s a bit to soon, I think. It’s got it’s pros and cons and only time will tell how it will work out.

Have you lived or been to California? What do you think?

Celebrate the Super Hero In your Family This Graduation Season

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are 100% my own.

Screen Shot 2016-05-18 at 5.37.43 PM

Last year marked a big one for us as a family; my husband graduated with his Ph.D.

It was a long, hard road, but he made it.

He is truly a super hero to me.

He received so many amazing gifts; I made sure that my gift was personalized so he would cherish it while it’s hanging in his office one day.

I got him a personalized frame for his diploma to hang on his wall. Here’s they best part, attached to the frame is a pen holder. He can put a pen there, so he always knows where it is when he needs it.

The two things this super hero in my family will be using more than anything else are pens and a tablet. The pens for writing down data and the computer for logging it all in.

My husband is a molecular biologist so taking notes and writing down data is most of his work, having a good working pen on hand is critical in his field.

Cross not only has the perfect gift in their beautiful Cross Century Collection of pens but thanks to the new Cross Tech2™ Marvel Collection you can find one with a classic super hero design that fits your grad. Is he or she more Iron Man, Captain America or maybe Spider-Man? These ballpoint pens offer a beautiful way to celebrate the importance of the job while still reminding each person of the super hero within.

For those, like my husband, who will find themselves working with paper and a tablet, the Cross Tech2™ Marvel Multifunction pens have a nice addition, a stylus on the top to help navigate touchscreens. The Cross Tech2™ Marvel Multifunction Collection is a heroic combo of a ballpoint pen and a stylus in one.

Character-themed design details
• Beautiful translucent lacquer finishes with metallic detail
• Presented in a luxury gift box with a Marvel-themed sleeve
• Lifetime Mechanical Guarantee
About the Finish
• A translucent deep blue lacquer featuring Captain America design details and rhodium-plated appointments
About the Tip
• Click-off cap
• Specially formulated ink flows freely like a fountain pen
• Includes 1 Black Gel Ink Rollerball Refill (#8523) in pen
• Can be converted into a ballpoint pen or creamy porous felt-tip pen by changing the refill to the desired type of tip.

I love the Spider-Man pen for my husband because it comes in his favorite bold colors, blue and red. Then there is the story of Spider-Man, a great super hero because not only does he save lives, but his superpowers come from a radioactive spider bite he received in, you guessed it, a lab.
