My kids actually get more excitement out of Valentine's Day than my Hubby does. I love to spoil them with love on this special day. 
School of Wash spoiled them with not only review products for me, but for each of my children. I was so amazed and blessed!! What a blessing to have a gift for each of my 6 children and myself from a sponsor!
School of House rocks!!

My Teen Shavers each received Hombre Shave Cream and Barber Shoppe Dusting Powder.
No more borrowing Dad's Shaving Cream, they have their own and it smells so manly!

Super smooth on their skin, they didn't have any irritation. Paraben and Talc free, these products are not only
My middle boys each were able to try the Body Wash and Body Lotion for Men. My 13 year old had me feel his arms and face after he washed, they were so smooth and soft! I think they are loving having their own body wash and lotion that isn't Mom-like!

 School of Wash has a Kids Line, like the one you are entering to win! Super kid scented products like this Body Wash, Handmade Body Lotion and Flavored Lipbalm.

 I am loving how School of Wash has a line for everyone! The best has got to be the one for Her..(maybe I am biased!)
Whipped Pumice Foot Scrub, Whipped Sugar Scrub, Lotion Bar and a lipbalm were in my gift bag. Felt like I had a best friend!!
The footscrub is divine, mine are rough and coarse and this was gentle and relaxing to use on my piggie toes! I tried the Pink Champagne like in the photo and it smelled wonderful.

I was able to try the Blue Candy Sugar Scrub and I loved this scent as well. A sweet but not over powering sugar candy scent.

I absolutely love Lotion Bars and have made them in the past. They are a MUST this time of the year. School of Wash bars are fantastic, and come in a container you can slip in your purse for your dry hand needs throughout the day!
I have just begun to touch on some of the products that School of Wash has! There are so many choices, and the scent choices is huge for each one!! I am looking to get some body butter next time I need a lotion. I suspect that is just as wonderful as the other products our family has been able to try out this week.

What a rosy bunch of flowers, and it is definitely improving my mood for the day!

Fenno Fashion Jewelry *Sponsor Post

I absolutely LOVE vintage style jewelry! Browsing estate sales, I am always drawn to the vintage style jewelry. Loud bling just isn't my style. I was enthralled and in love when Megan sent me this set by FENNOFashion. Firstly I love how the necklace and the earrings go so wonderfully together! I have gotten numerous complements on the necklace from wearing it out and about.  It is seriously one of my favorites and works perfectly with a V neck style shirt.

Love these delicate earrings that radiate beauty. The clasps are unique and so easy to use! Just a gentle dangle, but when the light catches the crystals they sparkle so nicely. With the antiquated look they give an aura of nostalgia.

Check out some of the beautiful jewelry I have drooled over on Megan's website!!

Printed Books Giveaway Hop *Cozy Mystery

I am a printed book junkie! I just had to join in this hop Hosted by I Am A Reader, Not a Writer. I have not read a single ebook yet, and plan to keep it that way for a long time. Just can't beat feeling the pages in your hands, the weight of the book, and hearing the spine as you turn each page toward the end of the story...

I am offering a Cozy Mystery, a newer genre that I am really enjoying!

Animal Helpers Wildlife Rahabilitators

Animal Helpers
Wildlife Rehabilitators
Jennifer Keats Curtis
Sylvan Dell Publishing

This photographic journal takes us behind the scenes in the day of a wildlife rehabilitator.

Rehabilitators feed and care for orphaned, sick, or injured wildlife. They also teach people about the rescued animals at wildlife centers. Teaching them about the specific animal as well as what to do if they find a hurt animal in the wild. 

The desire is to return the animal to it's native environment. The photos in this book are just gorgeous, from owls, opossums, birds, fawn and more. 

This is a fantastic book for young people to explore wildlife and careers associated with them. Geared for preschool to third grade. Very easy reading, but informational as well. 

The back of the book contains a section on Creative Minds: Compare and Contrast vets and rehabilitators. They also have some great true and false questions to get the reader thinking more deeply. 

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The Rhyme Bible Storybook

The Rhyme Bible
Written by L.J. Sattgast
Illustrated by Laurence Cleyet-Merle

 From 'A New World' to 'Good News', the Rhyme Bible takes the word of God and simplifies it in a rhyming way for children to hear and remember. 
35 classic Bible stories are brought to life through beautiful illustrations and a rhythmic reading that stays with them long after the book is closed. Perfect bedtime devotional, or to begin your day in the Word. Great for preschoolers who still enjoy sitting on Mom and Dad's lap for stories. 


"It's Jesus!" Mary Said. 
Jesus came alive again
That happy Easter day, 
He bled and died
Then rose again
to take our sins away!
I love how this Bible incorporated stories from old and new testament and continues with the resurrection of Christ, ending with the hope of his return for his children one day.

This would make a beautiful Easter Gift for a young one in  your family. You can purchase it directly from Zondervan HERE
