Support A Small Business And A GREAT CAUSE Too - @CrossBoneOutfitters #BackTheBlue

Our towns & cities would be a much different place to live in, if we didn't have Officers keeping the peace.
I know that everyone has an opinion on topics like these now days, so I will tread lightly...

No products were sent for this feature!  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest feelings on this fundraising effort for William Gentry's family.

Regardless of your personal feelings on the job they do, it's never right for an innocent person to loose their life.  
I think we can all agree on that!  
At least I hope so!  
I have many friends who work in this field and my heart goes out to their families as they leave their homes every day, not sure if they will come back home alive.
Heaven knows it's a job I would never be brave enough to do.
My friend's own a small business called "Cross Bones Outfitters".  
They provide so many awesome products including: clothing, accessories, bait, casting reels and rods, etc.  Plenty of fishing products...for those who love being out on the water and some things too for those of us who love the ones who love fishing.

They have also created some pretty awesome tees, and one in particular that donates proceeds for fallen Deputy William Gentry (his family) in Highlands County, FL! All the proceeds from these t-shirts are going to Dept Gentry's Family.

The @crossboneoutfitters t-shirts range in price from $28.50 - $33.00 and like I said, will be going towards a great cause!  
A family who lost their loved one, because he went to stop a domestic dispute/fight over a cat and will never come home to hug his family again.

CLICK HERE to purchase this t-shirt or gear for your FISHERMAN.  
Wear it proudly and know you're helping a grieving family out at the same time.

By Every Sink In Our House - @SoftSoap Products

We have a lot of sinks in our house.  
It's a fact!
A kitchen sink...and four bathroom sinks...and lots of people in the house, with lots of HANDS, to wash and keep clean all day long!

All products for this review/feature were sent free of charge by the company.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting this honest review about these products.
Because we are such a large family and we are also a family who tries their best to keep GERMS at bay...we wash our hands all the time.  
Before mealtime in the kitchen and after visiting the bathrooms too! 
SoftSoap liquid soaps are budget friendly and also work great, leaving our hands free of bacteria, soft and protected!  
It's a brand I have used in my home for years because of that reason.  
We have the "Clean Splash" Liquid Hand Soap in the kitchen...
for before mealtime hand washing and after meal time clean up.
We have the "Aquarium" Liquid Hand Soap in the kids bathroom, because it's got an adorable bottle with a cute NEMO fish...and the soap inside washes away bacteria...and heaven knows, with six kids, there is plenty of germs to wash down the drain.
We have the Antibacterial Liquid Hand Soap in our downstairs bathroom...the bathroom that gets used the most by our entire family!  This is also the bathroom we go through soap the quickest in.
And finally, we have the Antibacterial Liquid Hand Soap upstairs in our master bathroom.  I love the scent and it leaves your hands feeling soft and protected.  

All four of these liquid soft soap bottles will help our family stay healthier and cleaner as the summer months approach.  THANK YOU SOFT SOAP!
What type of SOAP is by the sinks in your home?

Happy EMOTIONAL Mother's Day TO YOU ALL!!

Mother's day always leaves me a mushy EMOTIONAL mess, EVERY SINGLE YEAR.  
It's a day that my kids try EXTRA HARD to make me feel like I am the most important person in their lives.  As a mommy, it's also a day to reflect on what makes us moms and why this day is so sweet!

No products were sent for this feature.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting this mother's day post.

I can first off, think of four amazing reasons that I get to celebrate Mother's Day!  
Ones that caused me indescribable pain to bring into the world (thank goodness for epidurals), countless tears, more smiles than can be counted and more love than my heart every thought it could hold!
I also have the pleasure of adding to that, two awesome bonus sons...who I also love very much!
I have some pretty AMAZING mommies in my life to look up to, seek wisdom from and provide plenty of extra entertainment for...thanks to our fun off spring (their grandkids).
It's also can be a hard holiday for some.  
Whether you have lost a mom, have an estranged relationship with your mom (or child), are not able to have a baby, or maybe even have lost a baby (I've had a miscarriage too), etc.  
There can be so many mixed emotions on MOTHER'S DAY!'

Ultimately, this is one of our main goals as MOM'S...or at least ones that choose to hear our kids feelings and treat them with respect because of that:
BEING A MOM isn't easy!  
Your kids love you more than you will ever feel extra loved today!

A Personalized Door Mat Makes The Perfect Anniversary Gift - @PersonalizedCart1

We just celebrated our first WEDDING Anniversary and our first year of LEGALLY becoming a blended family!

All product for this review/feature were sent free of charge by the company.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinion about this product.
If you've been reading this blog for long, you know I LOVE Personalized gifts & things.  Especially things that I am especially proud our big beautiful blended family!
So when Personalized Cart offered to send us a Personalized Coir Door Mat...I SAID, "YES PLEASE!"
It arrived today and I couldn't wait to put it out on the front porch!  
Personalized Cart created this just for our family, on a coir mat, with permanent acrylic paint.  That means the paint will hopefully endure the California sunshine and last for several years on our front porch.
While I don't know how long it will last, I am so excited for friends and family to "come and knock on our door" and see the adorable door mat before they are welcomed into our home!  
It makes me smile just thinking about it!
CLICK HERE to check out all the products that Personalized Cart can personalize for you and your family!  
Plus, their prices seem competitive and their products are legit.

One Year Ago Today - The Rainbow Blessed Our Day - HAPPY 1st ANNIVERSARY

A year ago was cloudy, SO COLD, and even a little rainy!  
It was also one of the most beautiful days I've ever experienced in my life.

No products were sent for this review/feature!  I was not compensated in any way by posting about our first anniversary as a married couple or blended family!
I married my best friend!  
A decision we took our time making, to make sure that it was going to be the right blend for all eight of us! 
Because we weren't just combinging the two of us, we were blending together our six children as well.
And when that RAINBOW popped out on the hillside of Temecula, we knew (and everyone who attended) that GOD was going to bless this union!  
Not just on that day...but for always!
So please help me in wishing my sweet husband a 
very HAPPY 1st Anniversary!  
I LOVE YOU now and always and forever!

I was not paid to feature this post!  I was not compensated by posting these memories from last year when we got married and became a legally blended family.
