Nuby Tub Time Turtle



My son loves taking baths and playing with toys. He loves his Nuby Tub Time Turtle and it keeps him busy for quite some time in the bath. The Nuby Tub Time Turtle is a fun interactive bath toy that floats on the water. This colorful toy is easy to grab and when lifted up the toy creates a waterfall. The bottom of the toy has holes in it so your little one can see the water go through. My son loves watching the water come down the toy. He loves to put the water on his head.
Like all Nuby products,this Tub Time Turtle is colorful and durable. This toy will keep your little one busy in the tub and it makes bath time fun. You can purchase the Nuby Tub Time Turtle at www.amazon.com and www.cookieskids.com

Keruig Vue

I received the Keruig Vue the other day from House Party! This  is a cool machine that I get to try out. I also  got some different coffees to sample with the Vue. This coffee machine has a big water tank along with an touch pad to get different sizes of coffee.The Keruig Vue machine allows you to brew stronger,brew hotter and brew bigger. The New Custom Brew Technology™ Customizes the brew process - adjusting water pressure, timing and airflow - so every beverage is perfect. Create frothy cafe beverages with air-infusion. Part of receiving this cool machine is I have to show it to my friends. So I will be bring this wonderful Keruig Vue to church this Sunday. I will have it there for our set up team to try a cup of coffee. That is a perk of coming early on Sunday. I will also have coupons for 50% off the cost of the Keruig Vue. If you can't make it to church to set up and want one of the coupons,just let me know. I will save you one.

Oral-B Professional Precision 1000 rechargeable power toothbrush

I was sent an Oral-B Professional Precision 1000 rechargeable power toothbrush to try. I put aside my old toothbrush and put the Oral-B Professional Precision 1000 rechargeable power toothbrush to the test for two weeks. I have used other power toothbrushes but my frustration has always been the bristles move side to side not spin in circles like the one the dentist uses. The Oral-B Professional Precision 1000 rechargeable power toothbrush wowed me the minute I tried it as the bristles spin.  My mouth was gong to feel fresh and clean like after I left the dentist office.  The  oscillating, rotating and pulsating movements of the toothbrush provided me a more effective clean I felt with my tongue.  could feel the Oral-B cleaning away all the gunk on my teeth. Here are the facts from the www.oralb.com website:
                   

       

ProfessionalCare 1000 provides dentist-inspired cupping action in which a unique, round brush head surrounds each tooth for a tooth-by-tooth clean.
  • Removes up to 97% of plaque from hard-to-reach areas*
  • Helps prevent and reverse gingivitis
  • Pressure sensor stops pulsations when you’re brushing too hard
  • 1 mode: Daily Clean
  • Oral-B is the #1 dentist-recommended toothbrush brand worldwide
I really liked the Oral-B Professional Precision 1000 rechargeable power toothbrush. The only fault I could find was is was noisy to use. That wont keep me from using the Oral-B everyday as I want my teeth and mouth to be clean and healthy.
For more info go to these links:  www.oralb.com,twitter.com/oralb facebook.com/oralb  and also  Oral-B is offering a $20 mail-in rebate on select power toothbrushes July 1 through September 30, 2012. Please visit OralB.com for more information.

My son loves to make the bear giggle and it brings a smile to his face when he does. The bear is soft and cuddly so my son can sleep with it at night. I can see the Nuby Tickle Toes bear becoming my son's best friend.
The Nuby line also has other animals in the Tickle Toe line. Choose from the wide range of children's characters or better still,collect them all!









They are all so cute and soft and make great playmates for your child. You won't be able to choose from one. I want the whole collection and they all giggle for your child. That will put a smile on their face everyday. The Nuby Tickle Toes are available at

McCormick Grill Mates

I recently had an opportunity to try some products made by McCormick called Grill Mates. This are wonderful products to make your food taste great. There are spices like Montreal steak and Molasses Bacon. They also make  a brown sugar bourbon sauce,a Memphis Pit BBQ rub and a spice brandy marinade. These Grill Mates are great for barbecuing things like steak,chicken and vegetables.
 We invited some friends over for a barbecue so we could try some of the Grill Mates. My husband rubbed some chicken breasts with the Molasses bacon spice before he grilled the chicken.
We also grilled some corn on the cob to go with our meal. My husband brushed the Brown Sugar Bourbon sauce on other pieces of chicken.

We had to eat inside as it was too hot outside The food looks wonderful.


.Here are my two little ones ready to try the food
The rest of the guests were camera shy,but they loved the food. Grill Mates made my chicken taste wonderful. I can't wait to try more dishes with Grill Mates.
