The lost art of a handwritten note #TurboPen #spon #PersonalNotesAreBest #HandWritingIsALostArt

Disclosure: I have received a product to facilitate this review. All views and opinions in association to the product(s) or company are that of my family or myself.
 
 
Do you get mail?
 
Not an email, or a Facebook post or message, but "Real" Mail?
 
Today's electronic capabilities allow us to instantly Thank someone, wish them a Happy Birthday, or express condolences. 
 
I happen to love getting a handwritten note in the mail. I am often too guilty of making sure family and friends get immediate Thanks and well wishes via the internet, but I am working on my penmanship skills as of late.
 
 
Our Cub Scout Pack recently overnighted at M.O.S.I. in Tampa and we wanted to make sure they had our gratitude for an excellent experience.
 
My writing utensil of choice is the 4 in 1 TurboPen by Minzos.
 
 
 
 
The 4 in 1 TurboPen by Minzos is a stylus/ballpoint pen/LED flashlight/laser pointer. This pen is lightweight and easily found in my oldest sons room. Seriously, when I want to write anything, I look in his room first. He loves this pen !
 
I use the pen for writing, of course, but also with the stylus on my iPad. The flashlight is perfect for looking for things at the bottom of my purse. Very useful!
 
The flashlight is bright and very direct. If you were in a dimly lit restaurant, you could easily utilize the light on this pen to assist.
 
If you are a Boy Scout, the 4 in 1 TurboPen by Minzos fits nicely in the pen pocket of your uniform. The top stays on tight and if you forget your flashlight when camping, Viola', your pen to the rescue. (Don't ask how I know this! I did say my son loves this pen right?)
 
You can find the 4 in 1 (stylus/ballpoint pen/LED flashlight/laser pointer) TurboPen by Minzos on Amazon.com at a very wonderful price.

Taking off make-up has never been easier. Loving my @natracare Organic Make-Up Removal Wipes #spon

Disclosure: I have received a product to facilitate this review. All views and opinions in association to the product(s) or company are that of my family or myself.
 
I don't wear make-up everyday. It takes a date with hubby or a night with the girls, and sometimes I'll freak everyone out and wear it for Church.
 
I wish I could say I had this spectacular skin routine, but I don't. I wash my face and apply some type of moisturizer and that's it.
 
Taking off make-up annoys me. Until now ....

Do you have trouble finding an oven mitt that you absolutely love ?
I do !
 
I use an assortment of mitts and gloves and sometimes even towels
 
 
 
But the past few weeks, I've been using the Premium Silicone Heat Resistant Gloves from Amazon. I can take any pan out of the oven or any pot off the stove and not have to worry about burning my fingers!

Squid and Gun Safety - Trying new things !

We are all about trying new things.
 
Well, I'm all about the kids learning and trying things while I take pictures and make sure they are safe.
 
Such is the case the past 2 weekends.
 
2 weekends ago, our Cub Scout Pack went to MOSI this year for a campout. Last year when we attended, we had a Space theme adventure. This year, we had a Marine Biology adventure of sorts.
 
All of the boys were able to dissect a squid. Only 1 Cub Scout didn't participate. Lots of parents and siblings got involved as well. It was great for the kids to learn about marine creatures outside of what they get from school.

NEW Garcinia/Cleanse ADVANCED Fast Weight Loss Kit #dietkit #spon

Disclosure: I have received a product to facilitate this review. All views and opinions in association to the product(s) or company are that of my family or myself.
 
Are you looking for something to curb your appetite and boost your metabolism?
 
I've been taking the High Potency Garcinia Cambogia for a couple of weeks now and I can tell you, this stuff works !
 
 
 
Team Innovations Labs Garcinia Cambogia has zero fillers, zero binder and zero artificial ingredients. You will get 100% pure Garcinia Cambogia Extract with 60% HCA Calcium and 66mg of Potassium Gluconate that is scientifically formulated to quickly allow you to reduce belly fat, suppress appetite, suppress cravings, block fat production, increase metabolism, enhance serotonin levels and much more
 
Slender Cleanse Advanced is a 7 day all natural gentle and controllable method to break up and flush away POUNDS of unwanted toxins and build up from the walls of your colon and intestines.
 
I took the Garcinia Cambogia with water and some days added it into my smoothie.
I'm not a big fan of pills so this is an alternative.
I did not notice a difference in either method and felt amazing taking the Garcinia Cambogia both my mouth and in my smoothie.
 
 
 

1st 5k of the year with one of my favorite running partners #BDR2015 #FitFluential

I've only completed 1 registered run this year and it was the Disney 10K in January.
So I'm ready to run my 1st 5k of 2015.
I don't mind running alone, whether it's around my neighborhood, fun run, or chip timed run. But having one of my running partners there is always a bonus.

On Saturday January 7th, I ran Best Damn Race Safety Harbor.
This was my 1st time running this particular event and I was all set to do it alone, but then my handsome 12 year old asked if he could run it with me.
 
Luke ran his fastest time in a 5k.
This was his 3rd timed race and he finished at 34:42.
I'm super proud !
 
 
My boys are pretty independent and know what they like and don't like.
There are time when I ask them to do things and they aren't interested.
But when they ask to participate with me in a run, it makes my heart swell.
Not only do they want to be with me, in public no less, but we are doing something healthy and active.
Even though I began running at 39, I am able to show my kids that I can do anything I put my mind to. I hope they can do that everyday !
 
 
 
I did not make my personal best record, but I'm happy with the run.
 
Now, I'm getting ready for the Gasparilla 15k & 8k.
I'll be doing the 15k with Jenny from Metamorfit and the 8k with hubby !
 
It's never too late to make a change !
Let's get moving !
