ANCESTRY DNA TEST



More About GPS ORIGINS - ANCESTRY DNA TEST.
GPS Origins is a revolutionary ancestry DNA test that takes you deep into your family history. Traditionally, DNA ancestry tests provide a report of your 'ethnicity' and locate parts of your DNA in broad continental sweeps, but nothing specific, not even to the country level. The GPS Origins (Geographic Population Structure) ancestry test combines the latest genetic research with a new ancestral tracking technique to pinpoint more precisely where your DNA began. The GPS Origins test indicates the town or village where groups of your ancestors from different cultures met - building a vibrant picture of the migration journeys that formed your deep genealogical heritage.

We are going to Washington DC! Thanks to Lipton!


So, some of you know I have a hobby and I enter a few contest a day more not than on but I try.  Guess what?  I won a trip to the Washington DC trip for Lipton's Chef Fest with Michael Symon and other Food network or Celebrity Chefs.  We are so very excited but not at the same time.  This will be our first official flight for me and my son.  Yep, only one guest so my husband wanted me and my son to get some bonding time.

Do you have any ideas on getting ready for the flight because my Autistic son is dead set against flying.  He knows he has to go with me and I am waiting for the panic as it gets closer.  This is a great opportunity to face a big time fear for the both of us.  I have won trips in the past but turned them down due to fear of flying.

We are thinking of only bringing carry on to make it simple but we have to include the swim suits... This is going to be a organizing feat.

Ok, well here is the deal.. I won and I will take pictures and video if allowed.

What we get?  A two night hotel stay.. Tickets to the Chef fest and 200$ spending money.  This is going to be fun!

Any recommendations for food in DC?  Let me know.

Little Passports is a Fun Activity for Kids


I got the opportunity to test a small kit of little passports in exchange for an honest unbiased review.

The Little Passports is a teaching tool that is designed to teach children about the travel and geography fun.  This is designed for teachers or parents to assist children in fun and knowledge.  The activities are all involve children in adventure and building and the do not even realize they are learning so much.  I personally am a hands on learner and feel these are a excellent tool.

It comes in several kits that all have a fun set of new activities.  The kit is a subscription service and there is a code for a percent off found here..   With the code FALL15 you will get $15 dollars off your kit.  Love codes.. I am addicted to shopping with codes.

We tried the world map and passports in the classroom and with my son.  Not only was this a hit my son wants more.  It is a activity sheets that really helps with hands on learning.  You build, learn, play all in this kit.  It includes toys, origami, and more activities.  As a teacher I think this product is an essential tool in keeping children

I want to thank you readers for sticking with me and thank Little Passports for this activity possibility.

I have had this written up a long time ago and have been taking a break from blogging.  I am so sorry but life happens and it is more important for me to be with my family and hope all my marketing people understand.... I do not know if you know but I have had a lot of loss this month.  My Grandpa and just a couple of days ago my Aunt.  When I lose people I get back to my introvert self and go into a deeper depression than I am already in.  Sorry for this and I will try to get back and running very soon.

I got to try the Sherpa Blanket and could not wait to get it.  The item was just beautiful and so soft.  Really, I cried when I saw all the pictures of my son on a nice sturdy and soft blanket.  You will find me cuddling this all day long.. Especially this winter. The product is a high value with clear pictures that makes it look great.  It is so very soft as sherpa or velvet is.  My son wants this blanket but he can not get it away from me.

The website is really easy to maneuver and is pretty straight forward.  You create an account and pick what item you want to make.  Upload your photos and organize then how you wish.  Chose your background and pattern.  After that You can add the photos and even enhance them how you wish.

I defiantly recommend this site and use them for the most beautiful gift to friends and family.

You can make many types of blankets but that is not all!  You can make just about any gift you can think of.  Mugs, blankets, rugs, coffee mugs, mouse pads and so very much more. We have worked with them quite a bit recently and love this.  I might have to make one of my grandfather who recently passed.

Thank you everyone for reading my review because you are really appreciated.

Wonderforge Family Games: The Peanuts Movie Snoopy Flying Ace Game.



My Rating: 5 stars
Mom Group Rating: 5 stars
For ages 4+

Skills learned:
Fast pace movements
Dexterity 
Fine Motor Skills

You can find it on Amazon here: Snoopy Flying Ace Game

We tested this game with at a local Mom's group and it was a big hit.  Moms. Dads. and kids all loved this game and really appreciate it for a fast paced game.  

This game is based off the new movie The Peanuts Movie and is a very good well made game of cardboard and plastic.  This game is a 3D game that is very fun and gets the kids very excited for spinning the top or even winning the game.   In this game it is a matching game with a bit of a challenge for a quick paced very easy game that is fun for all ages in my opinion. ( To tell you the truth I play games as much or more than my kids. )  You all take turns flipping a card and if you are the second to turn that card you win the match.  If you win a match you place your color token on the space that matches your card match.  You spin snoopy to see who his long stream from his house lands on, if it is yours then you win!

This is a great family fun game and it helps adults as much as it does children with your mobility and dexterity.  

The company that made this game is WonderForge and they have many very high quality games.  

I wanted to add this game is a perfect gift and my group are going to buy a couple games to hand out as trivia gifts for the next meeting.  



We had over 20 kids playing with this set now it looks like it did when I opened it.

My links are not affiliated nor any connection from the links go to me.  I just threw them in for your ease of shopping and one less step for you!

Wonderforge Family Games: Apple Pop


My Rating: 5 stars
Mom Group Rating: 5 stars
For ages 4 +

Skills learned:
Dexterity
Fine Motor skills
Color Matching
Problem Solving

You can find it on Amazon here: Apple Pop

We tested this game with at a local Mom's group and it was a big hit.  Moms. Dads. and kids all loved this game.  

First off you open the box and assemble the tree in the bottom of the box that it came in.  After you assemble the tree you place the three color set of Apples (balls) on the top and put the remaining pieces in front to allow everyone to pick their basket.   Game play is very easy on your turn you try to pop out your apple into one of the three baskets or in the box.  If it is a color you need and it lands in a basket then you get to go again.  It is a very fast game but still lots of fun.  You use a spoon shaped device that is in the shape of a leaf with a raccoon on the other side.  It is very well built and is strong cardboard and plastic.  Even with over 20 kids playing with this set now it looks like it did when I opened it.  

This is a great family fun game and it helps adults as much as it does children with your mobility and dexterity.  

The company that made this game is WonderForge and they have many very high quality games.

Smarteck Qy8 Bluetooth Earbuds

Smarteck Qy8 Bluetooth Earbuds


Smarteck Qy8 Bluetooth Earbuds

These are my favorite pair of Bluetooth headphones that I own.  They have great sound quality and they are perfect for working out, cleaning, and reading.   Well truely just about everything including gaming on my sons ipad2.  I use them when cooking, cleaning, walking, working, studying, and more like reading books and that makes them even better because they fit in your ear and filter sound out.   So, now it is mommy time only!  :)

They have a good sturdy cord and the cord only goes from ear to ear.   Sound quality is top notch and so is the suction that filters out most noise.
