Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #ChosenByKids

Not long ago, I told you about #chosenbykids and how Walmart had some great toys available. Well, I went to the event at a store near me  and had a blast looking at everything. The girls that set up the display were so nice and helpful. I asked a bunch of questions about the toys and they had no problems answering them. It was pretty cool that the kids could actually play with the toys right there. That let the parents know  if they will actually like it or not.

The toy I picked out may surprise some, but is a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle action figure. I remember watching the cartoon as a kid with my brothers and loved them. I figured, why not get one for my  youngest daughter. She has dolls and such  so why not an action figure as well? My favorite character has always been  Raphael. I don’t remember why, but I remember loving him, so I got his action figure.

My little one has been playing so much with her babies that I think she will love Raphael  and incorporate him into her world of play. I know I will have a blast playing with it  (I mean with her and playing with it lol). I like that you can fold his arms and legs in and then have him jump into battle mode where he has his weapons in hand and he is ready to go.

For under $13, this makes for a great stocking stuffer, present for a classmate or even your own child. So if you are looking for that last minute gift, consider one of these action figures or some of the other toys Walmart has that are #chosenbykids.

Last Minute Christmas Shopping at Staples

I have shopped at Staples tons of times but never really thought about going there for Christmas shopping. I really should have, they have more than just office supplies. I have been trying to think of what to get one of my best friends for Christmas when Staples asked if I would take a look at their store. When I saw the Mohpie, I knew it was perfect for my friend.

#cube real-time digital photo frame

I remember when digital photo frames just came out and thought they were very cool. I’m not saying they aren’t anymore but there is a new product out now that is even better. #Cube has taken the concept of the digital frame and taken it a step farther. I was so excited to have the opportunity to try it out.

Chocolate gifts from GODIVA

Need chocolate or need a last minute gift idea? If you are like me, then I would say yes to both those. So when I was asked by GODIVA if I wanted to try a few of their items there was no way I was saying no.

Great perfumes and skin care products

Perfume and skin care are some of the best gift to give a women. We can never have too many bottles of perfumes or types of skin care products, we just can’t. I wanted to share with you a few great scents and creams I have tried recently.

The Duck Commander Faith and Family Bible

"The stars of the hit TV show Duck Dynasty are committed to upholding five core values both on and off the screen: faith, family, fellowship, forgiveness, and freedom.The Duck Commander® Faith and Family Bible features new stories and testimonials by Phil, the Robertson family patriarch, and his son Al, a pastor with more than 22 years of experience. Together they offer fresh wisdom on biblical values and how everyday people can apply them to their lives. Powered by relentless dedication to sharing the gospel and celebrating Christ’s kingdom, the Robertson family has become influential to contemporary evangelism and discipleship. The Duck Commander® Faith and Family Bible unleashes the power of their practical insight into critical faith issues, founded on God’s Word."

My Mom loves watching Duck Dynasty and has even convinced me to tune it! I have to admit that the show offer wonderful values for families!  I have even began to enjoy the show myself and have gained a few giggles from it. Even my seven year old has tuned in and began to watch it with me. Even though I was hesitant to watch the show I eventually liked it. 

The Duck Commander Bible is absolutely wonderful! It is a Full King James Version Bible but also adds welcome notes from Phil and Al. There are articles in it from the top 25 most searched topics on Bible Gateway. There is even testimonials available in the bible! The content in this bible is very Bible centered, but also gives you a few giggles from the testimonials of the Robertson family. While originally, I did not understand the hype about a bible that has the "Duck Dynasty" thing, I have come to really enjoy this book. It is not only a full King James bible but it is also  a devotional built into one. This is going to make an awesome Christmas gift for my Mom!

Great Christmas Gifts from Cookie Lee

I was looking at accessories to add to my Christmas gifts this year, but wasn’t really sure what. It was perfect timing because Cookie Lee asked if I would take a look at some of their options. I was really excited since I have a few of their items already.
