Blaze and the Monster Machines DVD Giveaway!

Disclosure:  The original writer received one or more products in this post in exchange of an honest review.  All opinions are my own.

It's Blaze and the Monster Machines, It's Blaze and the Monster Machines, do do doot do doo, doo do doot do do.....  Oh wait!  I'm not alone here.  Sorry about that.  The Blaze and the Monster Machines theme song is so catchy.  I am guilty of signing it while cleaning.  While it may not be my chosen song, Cooper seems to think its funny.

With that admission, you can understand how happy Cooper and I were when Blaze's new movie showed up for us to review and share with you!  Of course there is a giveaway!  I hope you stick around for that.  Anyway, the kids and I weren't alone on the day that Blaze came to see us.  Allyson had a friend over.  Boy oh boy was he excited when I opened the package!!  Of course we had to watch High Speed Adventures right away!

The new Blaze and the Monster Machines movie includes 4 fun packed episodes!  You'll find Bouncy Tires, Stuntmania, Epic Sail, and Team Truck Challenge.  Cooper's favorite is Bouncy Tires.  The laughs and giggles that come out of him with each bounce is wonderful!

Pick up a copy of Blaze and the Monster Machines: High-Speed Adventures for your family today!  It is new on DVD as of today, Tuesday, August 11th!   It's a new favorite in our home and your Littles will love it too!

Fairground fun, as summer starts winding down!

We went to the last day of the fair, myself and a friend, with 5 kids and a stocked bag full of munchies!

We left early, to make a day of it and made sure the kids all got to have turns on age appropriate rides and I had the most fun on the dodgems and Ferris wheel, which I haven't been on in I don't even remember how many years!

We stopped to look at the animals, admired the cows and reminisced about how smart pigs are and how I would like to get one!

My son got a kick out of the sheep and he tried out his first merry-go-round and enjoyed his first big fair!

We took turns watching the kids do everyone, even us old fogies, got to have some of the fun and adventure!

My friends son had the absolute time of his life and had a grin etched in his face the entire day and her daughter was not about to say no to anything and she was a delight!

My daughter wanted to go on the big rides, with me, rather than the smaller rides on her own and she truly enjoyed it!

The day went on until the fair closed at ten and we were home eating pizza by 11pm. It was such a late night last night, but absolutely worth it, especially as we had no reason to get up today, so a lovely pajama Sunday was had by all!

If you can catch a fair before the summer is out, I absolutely recommend it! Here's to making memories!

Grill Out With Cookina Grill Sheets!! #grillingmadeeasy

I love to grill during the summer and have a regular charcoal grill for the occasion, but I was given a Cookina grill mat to try out and, I can tell you that I haven't had a better experience with my grill than I had last night!!

The Cookina grilling mat is, easy to cut to size, to fit your grill, and you can cook anything and everything on it, without anything slipping through the grates, getting stuck to the grill, or just causing a total mess!

I grilled up corn, burgers, zucchini, egg plant, tomatoes and hot dogs, plus a pan of rice, sausage and beans, all with total ease, and super fast!! The plus I was not expecting from the Cookina mat was that it got extremely hot, extremely fast and maintained the heat so well it cooked everything is a fraction of the time I am use to, without the mat, usually!

I absolutely love this product, and it made grilling a sheer joy, and easy to clean up and keep tidy! I even grilled a whole ref pepper and those suckers usually end up everywhere except on my plate, but with the Cookina mat, it charred right up and tasted delicious, without having to scoop out out of the grill! So very impressed with something that is such a simple, effective idea for a great price!

You can buy these mats on Amazon or their website, here!

Let me know if you have one of these, and how it went for you! I am definitely sold!

Disclaimer: I was provided a Cookina grill sheet for review, all opinions are my own, thank you!

Make the #SwitchtoSheba today! + Giveaway!

This post is sponsored, but all opinions are my own, based on my own experiences with the product provided. Your opinions may differ.

Sheba is a cat food that has meat as the first ingredient and has no corn, wheat or soy and also comes in handy sized packs!

This is Pepper, Pepper usually doesn't eat Sheba, but I tried it out on her tonight and she lapped it up with gusto, as we sat and grilled outside.

As I finished my grilled vegetables, Pepper finished off her first bowl of Sheba and I think she is sold!

It is easy to see why Sheba makes a happy cat, and we have made the switch!

Follow fellow kitties as they, too make the #switchtosheba and join in with your own furry friends with the hashtag on social media.

Pepper loves it, and your cats, can, too!


Want to win a years supply of Sheba? Upload a pic of your cat eating Sheba, with hashtag #Switchtosheba, on Twitter or Instagram, for the chance to win! More details at: Vocalpoint, here!
