We're Back! Kinda....



As many of you know, we live in a lovely small town on the Texas coast.  Our town was in the direct path of Hurricane Harvey at the end of August.  Like many of our neighboring towns up the coast, 90-100% of all of the buildings, homes and businesses in our town were damaged by wind and water.  The devastation is heartbreaking and overwhelming at times, but it has been amazing to watch our community rally...neighbor helping neighbor.  For most of those effected by this storm, this journey is far from over.  So much of our population is still displaced, some even living in tent cities, and will be for months.   Needless to say, blogging has taken a back seat as we have bounced around to 6 different places in the last 6 weeks, waiting to hear back from the insurance company.  Luckily, we will be moving to a more permanent rental in November where we will stay until our home is rebuilt.  That means a more stable schedule and hopefully time for blogging:)  Thanks so much for those readers who have stuck it out and continue to follow our blog.  We are looking forward to sharing some really great products with you soon!

BookCase.Club: Monthly Subscription Box for Book Lovers! August Edition

**Complimentary products received in exchange for our honest review.  All opinions are ours and ours alone**

Maybe it's the teacher in me, but I am a believer that if you provide a fun assortment of engaging books to your young readers (and listeners:) you are instilling a love for reading early on.

BookCase.Club helps you do just that!


BookCase.Club is a one-stop monthly subscription service for book lovers of all ages. Each case contains handpicked books based on your preferred genre.  There are six monthly categories and two quarterly categories to choose from: Paranormal Romance, Sci-Fi/Fantasy, Young Adult, Mystery/Thriller, Children’s, Romance, Military History and Cookbooks.  The Children's category recently got a lot more exciting!  It has been turned into Bookcase.Club Kids and the categories have gotten a lot more specific.  More about that at the end of this post:)

Here is an example of the types of books you receive in a Bookcase.Club Kids box:







As you can see, our box included four really great books that my kiddos loved!

The new division of Bookcase.Club is Bookcase.Club Kids.  Each #BCCKids case comes with three handpicked children's books, chosen to ignite the imagination and inspire creativity.   Bookcase.Club Kids is broken down into 5 sub categories based on age: Newborn-2 years, 2-4 years, 4-6 years, 7-8 years and Pre-Teen.  The box we received includes titles from several age groups.  I loved that this month's box included fiction and non-fiction books.

A subscription to BookCase.Club starts at $9.99 + $5.00 s/h per month which is a pretty good deal for books specifically curated to your interests.  Plus, each month, BookCase Club partners with Books For Keeps, and donates one children's book for every active subscription.  Books For Keeps aims to place books in the hands of children who are least likely to have access. This program gives 12 books to every child served just in time for summer. The goal: to keep up their reading achievement outside of school.  

BookCase.Club is definitely our favorite book subscription service...we've never been disappointed by the variety and the quality of the books we receive:)

Sea Band Mama! Helps Ease Morning Sickness! #MomsMeet

***I received this product for free from Moms Meet (momsmeet.com) to use and post my honest opinions. Compensation for this post was provided and this page may contain affiliate links.***

If you’ve ever been pregnant before, chances are, you may have had to deal with bouts of nausea throughout your pregnancy. With Sea-Band Mama!, the leading brand in morning sickness relief, you can relieve your nausea in a safe and natural way. 


Sea Band Mama! Morning Sickness Relief Band
Sea-Band is a knitted elasticated wrist band, which operates by applying pressure on the Nei Kuan acupressure point on each wrist by means of a plastic stud. The bands can be worn on each wrist whenever you feel nauseous.  I love the beautiful color of these acupressure bands:)

Sea Band Mama! Ginger Lozenges with Folic Acid
Completely free from artificial colors and flavors, Sea-Band Mama! Ginger Lozenges have been specially formulated with natural Zingiber Officinale, which is full of the essential oils gingerol and shogaol that can help relieve morning sickness.  Great for morning or motion sickness with the added benefit of folic acid!

Sea Band Mama! Aromatherapy Rollette 
This smells amazing and contains lime, spearmint and ginger essential oils...works wonders for combating nausea when rubbed on the wrists or gently inhaled.  Never underestimate the power of aromatherapy!

While I've never tried Sea Band Mama Morning Sickness Relief products while pregnant, I have no doubt that they work wonderfully.  We have used original Sea Band bands for motion sickness and can vouch for their efficacy.  


They really do work thanks to the mysterious science behind acupressure.  The Anti-Nausea Lozenges are great too.  Any time we are going to be out on rough seas, we come prepared with our bands and ginger lozenges!

Where to purchase
Sea-Band Mama! is available to purchase at CVS pharmacy, Rite Aid, Walgreens, Walmart, Target, and many other drug stores and pharmacies. To find Sea-Band Mama! in your area, visit: sea-band.com/where-to-buy-in-the-usa for the full list of locations.

Chewy.com is your one-stop shop for all things cat and dog! One of the fantastic products you can find at Chewy.com is from Zignature:

Both pups love Zignature canned food and the Trout & Salmon variety was a huge hit!  I love all of the naturally occurring protein, vitamins and minerals this canned food provides.  It's also allergy-friendly, which is a huge bonus.  Zignature canned food offers up the perfect balance of protein, fruits and veggies combined to make a delicious and nutritious dinner for your pup.
