Congratulations MGySgt Now It is Time To PCS - USMC - E9




Once again our family has had many changes happen over the past few months. The biggest of the year is that hubby pinned on Master Gunnery Sergeant earlier this month! I am so proud of him. Almost 24 years in the United States Marine Corps what a wonderful way for him to end his career. The man is old school Marine Corps. Works hard, always watches out for the welfare of his Marines and will do anything to help them succeed in their own careers.



His Unit held a great ceremony for him on drill weekend and his LtCol flew in from CA so he could be the one to pin him.





LtCol did some research and found that 0.4% of Marines actually make it to the rank of E9 and even fewer actually go the route of MGySgt. Wow!







The girls did a great job video recording the whole ceremony....



Hubby giving one of his "unique" motivation speeches..."as your carrier progress through this Wyoming Valley of the shadow of the death, have no fear, for you occupy this valley and the shadow is yours. OORAH"


Two weeks after this day the true chaos started. The packers came to our house, the movers followed behind and we PCS'd from our home of three years in PA to a new home and duty station in NJ!! That's right we are already gone. We are on day 3 in our new home and it is starting to settle down. I still have a lot to organize and the girls start their new school next week. This will be our final adventure as hubby is at the top of his career. Two short years and we will be moving once again but it will be to our forever home. Can't wait!

Mommys Bliss Kids Upset Tummy & Nausea Relief {Review}



One of the worst mommy problems I deal with are tummy issues. When your child comes to you saying they are nauseous or that their tummy hurts sometimes you feel helpless. It's not a cut or scrape you can see and easily make better with a band-aid and a kiss. You start asking the questions..."what did you eat last?", "where exactly does it hurt?", "did you poop today?". In my house helpful answers to this situation are rare and usually ends in the shoulder shrug and "I don't know". As a parent I feel awful when this situation arises, that was until I was introduced to Mommys Bliss Kids Upset Tummy & Nausea Relief.



Mommy Bliss also is the maker of the #1 selling product Gripe Water. Always naturally sugar free, no alcohol, harsh chemicals or parabens. No artificial flavors or colors and no dairy, gluten or soy. As a mom who believes in eating clean and buying organic it is nice to know if you have to use a OTC product there are companies out there like Mommys Bliss

Just the other day my youngest came to me saying she was nauseous and her tummy hurt. Is it sad that I was a little excited for her discomfort because then I could have her try the Mommys Bliss Kids? If this worked, it would be a god send for my family. So I took one of the single dose packets out of the box, ripped off the top and let her drink it right out of the package. Literally within less than 15 minutes she was feeling so much better, hooray!


Mommys Bliss Kids Upset Tummy & Nausea Relief is a natural herbal supplement used to help ease the occasional stomach discomfort associated with nausea, motion sickness, indigestion and gas. Made with natural ingredients including organic ginger, fennel, dill and peppermint extracts and is 100% vegetarian & vegan.


Mommys Bliss is a family owned company and was founded by a mom of three who is also a registered nurse, lactation consultant and midwife. Her dedication to her family and their health inspired her to create products that are safe, effective and affordable.

I can honestly say Mommys Bliss Kids Upset Tummy & Nausea Relief will forever be a staple in our home not only for my girls but I can use it too! With my gastric ulcer and IBS issues, I could surely use a more natural solution and hopefully cut down on the prescription meds I take. Mommys Bliss Kids Upset Tummy & Nausea Relief can be bought via their website or out in town at your local Walmart, Whole Foods, Walgreens, CVS and Rite Aid. You can also find Mommys Bliss on your favorite social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.

Jammin with J-Animals {Review}




My girls love every fun commercial they see and of course they want all the "as seen on tv" gadgets, toys and more. Every year their wish lists consist mostly of these items. I hope they never discover QVC..lol So I knew when I received an email to review the J-Animals from Jay@Play how could I turn that down. I mean really, my girls would kill me.



J-Animals is a super fun "wearable stuffed animal". This cuddly stuffed animal has a secret compartment that once easily opened, unfolds into a wearable outfit! With three different sizes available kids and adults alike can enjoy the fun and comfort of J-Animals. J-Animals is made from soft fleece with elastic around the wrists and ankles. A wide zipper down the front makes it easy especially for kids to put it on themselves. When the wearable fun is over simply roll it up and it transforms back into a stuffed animal.




As you can see my oldest had so much fun trying out the "Zany Zebra" J-Animals we received. As a matter of fact I was taken back when she started jumping around singing the song from the J-Animals commercial. A) I had no idea she knew the song and B) it was just hilarious. I wished I could have got her on video!

J-Animals features five colorful characters: a su-purr cat, zany zebra, paw-sitively awesome dog, groovy giraffe and a magical unicorn. This is a creative and fun addition to any slumber party, outdoor movie night or just hanging out at home.

J-Animals is not available in stores but can be bought online easily on their website! You can also follow J-Animals through all your favorite social media sites... Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
