Some types of wetness can’t be helped. Control the ones that CAN! #TryImpressa #ad #giveaway

#TryImpressa #ad

Some types of wetness just can’t be helped.  For example, when you accidentally leave your car window cracked open on a rainy night….and get a wet seat in the morning.   Or what about when you walk through a puddle in your yard on the way to the mailbox, and get a squishy shoe.  Then there’s the time when you drop your mail on a wet countertop or the wet steps.  These things happen.   The same applies for stress urinary incontinence.  It happens!  The good thing is, you CAN control that wetness.

Get slow cooked baby back ribs and fried chicken at Ryan’s + #giveaway

There are a few things in life that brighten my hubby’s eyes. Spending a relaxing day with the family makes him smile. Other happy moments include spoiling the dog with a good belly rub….taking a drive to look at the autumn leaves….and a big plate of BBQ ribs. When I told him that Ryan’s is bringing back Slow Roasted Baby Back Ribs (through October 25), his eyes lit right up!  In fact, he wants to head there tonight for dinner (at our Ryan’s, the ribs are available after 3:30 PM).  Ryan’s is sending me meal vouchers to try the delicious dinners, and one lucky reader will also win 2 meal vouchers!  Head to the Ryan’s website to find a location near you.  You’ll be eating well!

What to read this weekend: The Tank Man’s Son, No Fear, and What Teachers Make

Disclosure: I received these books to review. Post contains affiliate links; opinions shared are mine.

Ready for a book that will take your breath away?  These nonfiction books are worth the read!


The Tank Man's Son book review

If you were a fan of Oprah’s Book Club, The Tank Man’s Son will be right up your alley.  This memoir is evidence of the way God works for the good of those who love him.  Sad at times, hilarious at certain moments, and definitely inspirational – this book will tug at your heartstrings.  Some parts are so outlandish that it’s hard to believe that this story could even be true.

God Bless Our Fall book review and #giveaway — Books That Need More Attention

Disclosure: I received this book to review. Opinions shared are mine.

Fall is probably my favorite season. I love the way the air feels cool in the morning….not cold enough for a coat, but not warm enough for short sleeves. The changing leaves make me smile, and I love when they drop and get all crunchy. Delicious autumn flavors like caramel and pumpkin make their appearance in the fall, too. That’s why I love the board book God Bless Our Fall by Hannah Hall.  It’s so much fun to win giveaways for my kids, so I knew this book was the perfect prize in the Books That Need More Attention giveaway hop.

Introduce your child to a new type of art with Ice Cream Work

Disclosure: I received this book to review. The post contains affiliate links; opinions shared are mine.

I’ve never really been in touch with my Japanese heritage.  My kids love to eat certain Japanese foods, and they call their grandmother “Oba” (just as I do).  Beyond that, the only thing that defines our Japanese affinities would be our Honda van.  So when I received Ice Cream Work to review, I didn’t really appreciate the Japanese artwork at first.  It seemed more retro to me; it immediately reminded me of 80’s cartoons.  The muted colors and stylized patterns seemed reminiscent of books from my childhood.  The author’s page revealed that Ice Cream Work represents a unique form of artwork called SUNAE.  Have you heard of it?

Decorate with candy this fall! #giveaway #SweetworksAutumn

Disclosure: This is a Fashionista Event and a promotional item was provided to me by Sweetworks. Hosts for this event are Still Blonde after all these Years and ModlyChic.

Finding ways to solve two problems with one product is a big time saver at our house.  It’s hard to keep fall decor in line with the changing holidays.  It’s also the time for sweet treats, which is always fun!  One great way to get the two together is to set up your fall table with Sweetworks candy.

Fall Fun #giveaway featuring Solar Shields

Disclosure: I received product samples; opinions shared are mine.

As I age, my eyes become more sensitive to sunlight. It’s rather ironic, since my eyes actually need more artificial light in order to see a book page or computer screen. Sunlight, however, seems to irritate my eyes. Sunglasses have become an essential part of my accessory wardrobe in recent years! Sometimes sunglasses still don’t shield my eyes enough; the light peeps in and around my frames. That’s why Solar Shields was such a hit with me. These are designed to fit over prescription glasses, if needed, but can also be worn alone.
