Jenaluca Herb Scissors & Stainless Steel Scoops Review

**All opinions expressed are 100% my own.  I was not compensated for this post.  I was given product for review purposes.**



Over the last couple of years, Ben and I have really gotten into growing our own foods, and using more and more fresh ingredients.  I love the smell and taste of fresh herbs.  Dill in particular is my favorite.  I use it in everything from Potato salad, to deviled eggs!!

Jenaluca offers two terrific products that are great for any chef.  I was sent their Herb Scissors, and a set of Stainless Steel Ice Cream Scoops.

Learn To Grow Your Own Foods With DuneCraft!!

**All opinions expressed are 100% my own.  I was not compensated for this post.  I was given product for review purposes.**




DuneCraft is a nationwide leader in creating innovative, interesting indoor growing kits. All of our products are fun and educational, and each contains a plethora of background information on the plants and science behind each product. The company started with a single kit that grows over 25 different varieties of cacti from seed. That kit, called Odd Pods, is still a classic today. Dunecraft's products have grown to include a vast assortment of growing kits at a variety of price points. Some of DuneCraft's best-sellers include Carnivorous Creations, the Princess Garden, the Dinosaur Plant, Dragon's Lair, and much more. These kits are great for children of all ages, and are extremely popular.

DuneCraft has also introduced a line of eight different, eye-catching micro-terrariums, the world's smallest terrariums, which only need to be watered once every few months. The $4.99 price point makes these a fantastic novelty. DuneCraft also has an award-winning line of science products that keep children and adults engaged for hours, including Space Sand, Super Snow, Smart Tubes, and a brand new line of kits tailored to the classroom setting.

Now that I am older, have kids, and way too many responsibilities, I understand how important saving money is.  I also greatly appreciate the value of growing my own foods.  Nothing tastes better then fresh home grown foods, and nothing makes you feel more accomplished then to know you grew it yourself!!

DuneCraft specializes in fun grow your own kits.  You can grow anything from simple veggies like mushrooms, to more exotic things like coffee, and even plants that were around in the biblical times.

I was sent three terrific kits.  I am now growing my own Oyster Mushrooms, Coffee, and a Beer Garden!!


We have perfected the processes of growing great mushrooms quickly, while preserving the shelf life of the kit. Our kit now contains a new form of growing mycelium for the best results possible! If you have not tried this hot-selling kit, you should consider it!


Brew coffee that you grew with this complete kit! On average each mature coffee plant will produce one pound of coffee beans. Your plant will exhibit shiny dark green showy leaves with fragrant white flowers. Coffee plants are typically 6 feet tall but can grow to be 15 feet or taller. They will sprout in 3 to 4 weeks!


Everyone loves the taste of fresh beer. Grow plants to make beer in your very own Beer Garden! You will find it fun, rewarding, and tasty to grow your own beer making plants.

These kits make great gifts for anyone who has their own green thumb, and perfect to help teach kids the fun of growing your own foods.

North Star Games Has Something For Everyone!

**All opinions expressed are 100% my own.  I was not compensated for this post.  I was given product for review purposes.**






I love board games.  I grew up with them, and even when I was a young adult (before kids,) that was a fun pass time for Ben and I to do.  We would play for hours with our best friend Chris.  

I have taught the kids that technology is not everything, and that you can have as much fun with board games as you can with video games.

North Star Games sent me two fun games to play with the kids.  The first one is Happy Holidays.

  
Ages: 6+   |   Players: 3-8   |

Happy Holidays! gets everyone laughing as soon as they open the box. It’s the hilarious game where players take turns surprising each other with unique gifts. From a remote-controlled robot to your own private island, Happy Holidays! is filled with full-color pictures of wacky and wonderful gifts. Which one would you give? Which one would you like to receive?

Happy Holidays! is the perfect stocking stuffer and will turn any holiday gathering into a party!

How to Play

Everybody gives you a gifts from their hand.
You pick the best…and worst.

Those players get a point!

This is a great way to learn from people what gifts they value the most and what you should never ever buy!!!

The other game I was sent was Wits and Wagers.



Ages: 10+   |   Players: 4-unlimited   |
With over 1 million sold, Wits & Wagers has become a modern classic and is still the most award-winning party game in history!  Wits & Wagers Deluxe Edition is the same game you know and love, but now loaded with upgrades!

- New casino-quality wagering chips
- Crease-free felt mat
- Deluxe dry-erase markers with erasers
- Premium cardboard currency chips

Best of all, Wits & Wagers Deluxe Edition is the same great price as the original Wits & Wagers!

How to Play

Do you know the average number of pizza slices eaten by Americans each day? Of course not! That’s the fun. No one knows the answers, but everyone can take a guess. The felt betting mat and different payout odds will make you feel like a Vegas high roller. Get lucky and you’ll cheer like you hit the jackpot!

Read a fun question...Everyone writes down a guess.
Place your bets... Which guess is closest?
Feeling confident? Bet on yourself.
Think others know better? Bet on them.

No idea? Bet on any guess and hope to get lucky.

This is a very fun trivia like game.  You bet on how much you think you know the answer to some crazy questions.  If you are absolutely sure you have no clue, bet on someone else's answer!!  Ben Jr, Ben Sr and I almost always say that we are sure we are right.  Doug always bets on someone else.  He usually wins!!  This is a ton of fun to see how smart you and your friends are!!

North Star Games has games for people of all ages.  It is a great way to spend some quality family time together!! 

You can purchase the games directly from their site, or through Amazon!!  Hurry, some are still available to receive before Christmas!!

"Ring It" From Blue Orange Games

**All opinions expressed are 100% my own.  I was not compensated for this post.  I was given product for review purposes.**



With 14 years experience creating high quality games, exquisitely designed for maximum fun, Blue Orange Games looks to the future with consistent ideals.

Choosing durable, feel-good materials, we pledge to produce games that last through generations and create cherished moments.

Designed to be easy to learn and to build upon important skills, our games invite families to unplug for hours of good old-fashioned fun.

Respect for the environment is a priority and we are committed to planting two trees for each one used to create our wooden games.

We would like to thank all the retailers and players around the world who support our games and make the value of play an everyday reality.


Ring It!

AGES 5 AND UP • 2-9 PLAYERS

Clap and ring your way to victory! Players continuously flip their cards until a combo is found. Be the first to find the combo, clap your hands and ring the bell. Hesitation may cost you 1st place, but if you act too quickly you may make a mistake and face a penalty! Get ready for chaotic clapping followed by lots of laughter!!

What makes Ring It! so special is that players are encouraged to introduce a silly action before ringing the bell. Players' own creative spark will heighten the excitement of the game. Uproarious laughter is unavoidable, as they rush to remember the current round’s rule. It’s common to see one player mooing like a cow, while one pats their head, as another flaps their arms like a chicken! Get ready for chaotic clapping followed by lots of laughter!

This game is a lot of fun and quite silly.  We keep trying to remember to clap then ring the bell, but someone always forgets!!  I like that this is fun for all ages, and helps kids to think while having fun!!

This would make a perfect stocking stuffer!!  You can purchase the game at Blue Orange's site, or check here for a store near you!!

Car Valet Review And ~~Giveaway~~




Do you have an older car, or even a newer one with very few cup holders??  I am very lucky that I have a ton of cup holders in my van (12 to be exact,) but only two in my Husbands car.  With four of us, not having enough cup holders is frustrating.  I was very excited to be sent a Car Valet.  It has given us those much needed cup holders in Ben's car, and an extra spot for his phone!!  



The Car Valet clips right onto your console or even your seat.  We have it clipped under Ben's radio.  It's made of a pretty good plastic, and what I like the best is that it holds all different sized cups.  I have put big ones that you get from the movie theater, and even regular coffee mugs from my kitchen in it.

You can purchase the Car Valet on their website here, and right now they are running a great special where you can buy one get one free!!

Would you like to win one??  One lucky reader is going to get their own Car Valet.

Enter below using the rafflecopter form and good luck!!
