2016 Is Just Not Going To Be My Year

I have to admit I was so excited about 2016, a new year means a new start on life. Well, that was until one thing started happening after another. It’s only the 26th, if this much has happened so far in my life I am not looking forward to the rest of the year.

In just 26 says there has been a death in the family, a serious hospitalization, major expensive car work, and bills going up of course.

I shouldn’t complain I have a roof and food and a loving family and thats all that really matters.

I was just hoping that things would finally kick off this year, but it’s taken a unexpected turn.
I had goals and really wanted to get in shape, but I’ll admit I am a eater when I get stressed or upset so that is not going the way I had planned.

Job hunting is another aspect I am having trouble with as I thought the economy was getting better, but I saw on the news that even people with huge resumes and great degrees are having trouble findings jobs in 2016.

I am actually looking forward to the middle of the year, because it seems that things seem to pick up then. At least I hope.

How is 2016 turning out for everyone else? Is everything going the way you wanted?

Leapfrog Epic Tablet Review Holiday 2015

My kids are fully into electronics now, they use them for homework, games, email to keep in contact with old friends and so much more. I do worry about their safety online though and have set tons of parental controls. My youngest wants to go on the computer but I worry about his safety as he is so young. Now I don’t have to worry with the new Leapfrog Epic Tablet.


Leapfrog Epic Tablet is all tablet. It’s very different from the leap pads and tablets they have introduced before that could be used with gam cartridges. This is strictly a tablet and you can download the games from the Leapfrog app center.
It has a few things preloaded into it like cute videos and games.
It also has a parent center where you can put a limit on how much time your child is allowed. You can add in links of sites you will allow your child on and those will be the only websites they have access too.
Leapfrog Epic Tablet is a great gift for younger children who love playing with their parents electronic devices, but without the worry of them going to a inappropriate site, or posting that hideous picture of you hiding in your phone.





My son loves this tablet, although I have given him a bit of free access to a lot of sites that he loves. Leapfrog Epic Tablet also comes with a rubber case to help protect the tablet from those unfortunate drops. My daughter loves the voice recorder on it. She records herself singing or just uses it to remind herself of something. It’s the perfect learning tool for little kids as it helps you with time, geography, math and so much more.

You can find the LeapFrog Epic Tabet at retailers nationwide.

The WubbleX is a anti gravity ball.

The WubbleX seems like a mixture of a balloon and a bubble. We didn’t know what to expect at first since it was anti-gravity was it going to float away or something. You start out by inflating the ball and since it is a helium inflated ball it only uses the Wubble cans, which can be expensive themselves. I picked mine up at Walmart for $10. The can only lasts about one use.
The WubbleX ball is a lot of fun. My kids love bubbles but they are hard to catch and burst to fast. The WubbleX is like a Bubble that doesn’t pop unless it hits something pointy of course.




My kids loved playing with it but the and-gravity didn’t last to long and the WubbleX started to come down after a hour or two. Within a few days it was totally deflated and my kids were begging me to go buy another because they loved it.
The come in all different colors too blue, green and pink.

Getting Ready For Halloween 2015 with a Steampunk Costume

Disclosure: No formal compensation was received for this post. A product was provided for review.

Halloween is a little over a month away and my kids are so excited they are already picking out their costumes. They have picked out a Fireman, football player and a Steampunk.

New for Halloween 2015 is the Steampunk costume for girls. The costume features a dress which is different shades of brown, and is covered in velvety material on the sides and on top, extending into a high collar with a ruffled neckline. A striped panel with three buckle adornments is in the center of the torso. The reddish brown skirt has a white band along the hem with an attached black petticoat underneath. Two belts, similar to those on the top, dangle from the waistline of the dress over the skirt.
Costume also includes matching glovettes and a matching hat with goggles, to give the costume the perfect touch.



My daughter fell in love with this dress, she wanted to be a mad scientist but we couldn’t find anything girly enough and this costume is perfect. It has the scientist look but with a victorian feel and beautiful. She said she feels like the Mad Hatter, a princess and scientist all wrapped into one in this costume.

In case you are wondering what exactly a Steampunk is, it’s a genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery rather than advanced technology. It also can refer to a Victorian style era.

This costume also comes in various styles for woman in addition to the girls costume.

Stinger All Natural Mosquito Repellent Lantern Review

Disclosure: No formal compensation was received, a product was provided for review.

Summer is still here and so are the Mosquitos. We live in a very shaded place, there are trees all around and that keeps a lot of standing water and mosquitos. My kids will go outside just for a hour and come back in with multiple mosquito bites. I spray repellent on them but they still seem to get bit. In addition to spraying repellent on them I also wanted to do a lantern, just to have double protection.
