#Natrogix Green Superfood Powder Review

We have a smoothie almost daily. Usually I add spinach leaves, dried kale that's been ground down, matcha, or Natrogix Green Superfood Powder

I do feel like they could have filled it a little more full.

You can also add Natrogix Green Superfood Powder to water. I just whisk it as I drink it. It's actually really good! It tastes like orange and not green.


$19.99, but on sale on Amazon for $13.99.

That's for 30 servings. 

Do you like having smoothies?

NLCAC Bead Ball Earrings Triple Dangle Ear Drop

I love different earrings. These NLCAC Bead Ball Earrings Triple Dangle Ear Drop certainly has a unique look:


They have the color(s) I got to review. It would work with blue, green, gold, black and more!
  • White 
  • Yellow
  • Red
  • Teal
  • Ultramarine Blue
  • Black
I think if I could choose another color besides the ones I reviewed I'd pick yellow too. I have the perfect outfit to go with yellow.


$44.99, but on sale for $11.59.

Length and Weight:

It's hard to tell how long, or big something is going to be in a picture. These honestly are way to long for me. I could do with one or two less ball(s). Ha! I'd blame it on my short hair, but I still think even if I had long hair I wouldn't want them that long.

They are fairly light weight.

#Giveaway 9/11 Film Charlie Sheen Autographed Poster and Gift Pack #Remember911 @9_11Movie

Disclosure: I did not receive anything from the sponsor. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the the information out there on 9/11, and I have not been influenced by promotional items.

9/11 opens in theaters on September 8. I really can't wait to see it.

9/11 certainly was a day to remember. We just moved from Atlanta, Georgia to Omaha, Nebraska. Travis started his first dental technician job on 9/11. I had trouble getting work because no one was hiring. One of my friend's got married the weekend after 9/11 occurred. Many of her family members called to cancel if they were flying in for the ceremony. I couldn't watch the TV without crying. I think anyone that was an adult at that time remembers that day.

9/11 features an all star cast including: 

  • Luis Guzman (The Taking of Pelham 1, 2, 3)
  • Gina Gershon (Showgirls)
  • Wood Harris (Justified)
  • Jacqueline Bisset (Dancing on the Edge (BBC), Welcome to New York)
  • Olga Fonda (The Vampire Diaries) 
  • Bruce Davison (X-Men)


In the World Trade Center, a billionaire sits in his attorney’s office awaiting a divorce hearing against his wife. In a west side apartment, a bike messenger kisses his 5-year old daughter and sings her “Happy Birthday” before leaving for work. A maintenance man gets dispatched to help a tenant with his lock. In an upper east side apartment, a young model musters the courage to break up with her sugar daddy. As random as random can be, these individuals step into a crowded World Trade Center elevator.

Wrapped up in their own world, they all ride silently hearing only the sound of the elevator giving notice of each floor. When the elevator stops on the 34th floor, it empties leaving only these five behind. Moments later ... their world changes as the collision of a jet into the North Tower incapacitates the elevator.

With no understanding of what has happened and is happening around them, these fives are forced to band together and fight against all odds to escape from the impending horrific collapse. During these critical minutes, a story of courage, faith, and the will to live unfolds. Visit the official 9/11 movie website for more information.

  • 1 - 9/11 poster Hand Signed Autographed by star Charlie Sheen

HICKIES are no tie elastic shoelaces.

Isaak in particular is horrible on the knees of his pants, and shoelaces. He's just the typical boy with clothing. Mica never was a rough and tumble kid. At least Mica was born first, and his clothes can get handed down. I'm always saying, "Isaak get up and walk on your feet, not your knees." and "Isaak tie your shoes!" I really hate when he's playing basketball and his shoes are untied.

If you're like me, and you get after your kids for needing to tie their shoes everyday before they step out of the house, you'll want to try HICKIES.

Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-walk or run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-ons that are perfect for any activity from a small activity to a rugged workout. Features: 

  • They work in any shoe with eyelets. 
  •  One size fits all. 
  •  Elastic material keeps shoes secure and comfortable. 

Never tie again! Play uninterrupted. Fun look, without messy knots and bows. Adjustable tightness. Quick and easy - simply slip on and off.

@Hickies Never Tie Laces on 25% off w/ code USFAM now thru Sept. 20th! .@usfg

Send Grandma and/or Grandpa a GrandBox. It's the perfect gift for Grandparent's Day, their birthday, Christmas, or just to show them how much they are loved!

My only problem is who do I give it to? 

  • My grandpa would love to get this considering he can't drive, and hardly gets mail. If it goes to my Grandpa - I'll add a fidget spinner because he got into playing with one at our house.

  • My parents help out the most. They really bend over backwards to help take care of the boys. It would be nice to send this to them. 

  • My in-laws never get to see the boys. They would like to get mail as well.  

I'll have to look in the box, and decide. I'll want to add a drawing or creation that Isaak's made as well. That boy is always busy making something.

I do love the idea of sending this to someone the boys and I love!

GrandBox is a monthly subscription box curated specifically for seniors 65 and up. Each box can be personalized with family photos and a note. It's the perfect gift to bring a smile to your loved ones. 

If they go by Grandma and Grandpa, or Nana and Pop it's the perfect gift!

WW: Bart's Art {Linky}

We went to a friend's art show. We didn't make it to the opening, but still got to see his art on the walls.
