Barefoot Books "Fall-Themed Books" Review

Disclosure - Per FTC Regulations, I am disclosing that I received product(s) from this company/website, free of charge, for review. I was in no other way compensated for my review. The views expressed in this review are my own, honest opinions and any claims should be verified on the sponsor's site.
I LOVE books!  (You may already know that by now.  Haha!)  I love to get my girls books as special gifts.  I especially love to buy books that have to do with special holidays or seasons of the year.  So, with Fall approaching (Have I mentioned that I LOVE LOVE LOVE Fall?) I thought I'd share some great "seasonal" books from one of my favorite sources - Barefoot Books.  (You can find my first Barefoot Books review HERE.)



Blogging Throught the Alphabet: H is for "Haystacks"

Its almost Fall!  Yay!!!  Fall is my FAVORITE time of year!  Cooler weather, football, pumpkins, scarecrows, Thanksgiving, changing leaves, etc., etc., etc.!  So, with that in mind, I thought I'd share a fun little recipe!  And its one you can let the kids help make!  Haystacks! Really, these are great any time of the year, but the name "Haystacks" puts me in mind of Fall.  And they are great as a football snack or a Thanksgiving appetizer!

Blogging Through the Alphabet - G is for a "Good Word"

Well,I'm horribly behind on my blogging through the Alphabet series.  Please forgive me.  Its been crazy around here.  We've had some hard things - like my FIVE trips to the dentist and then a trip to the endodontist for a root canal.  YIKES!  It hasn't been pleasant.  And my youngest had to have a test done for a condion she has had since before she was born.  Praise the Lord, the test came back very good!  We also had my oldest's 3rd birthday - which is FABULOUS!  But she's REFUSING to potty train.  ARGH!!!!!  AT the moment, I my kitchen is a mess, there's a pile of laundry in the bedroom, and I've been in my pajamas since I got home from church.  But I'm plodding along, praise Jesus!  Anyway, its been a rough few weeks for us - full of lots of UPs and lots of DOWNs.  I also have several friends who are going through hardships and trials or all sorts - physical, emotional, financial.  Life seems to like to beat on us.  So I wondered what I could possibly say for my G post and I decided that everyone needs a "good word!"  But my words are flawed.  My words are sinful.  My words don't heal, protect or comfort.  But God's word does!  God's word is truly a GOOD WORD!  SO with that in mind, I'm gonna use His words for my G post.  This is one of my favorite psalms.  Its a constant reminder of what an amazing, generous, caring, comforting, loving, forgiving, WONDERFUL God we serve!
Psalm 136
1 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever.
2 Give thanks to the God of gods, for his steadfast love endures forever.
3 Give thanks to the Lord of lords, for his steadfast love endures forever;
4 to him who alone does great wonders, for his steadfast love endures forever;
5 to him who by understanding made the heavens, for his steadfast love endures forever;
6 to him who spread out the earth above the waters, for his steadfast love endures forever;
7 to him who made the great lights, for his steadfast love endures forever;
8 the sun to rule over the day, for his steadfast love endures forever;
9 the moon and stars to rule over the night, for his steadfast love endures forever;
10 to him who struck down the firstborn of Egypt, for his steadfast love endures forever;
11 and brought Israel out from among them, for his steadfast love endures forever;
12 with a strong hand and an outstretched arm, for his steadfast love endures forever;
13 to him who divided the Red Sea in two, for his steadfast love endures forever;
14 and made Israel pass through the midst of it, for his steadfast love endures forever;
15 but overthrewa Pharaoh and his host in the Red Sea, for his steadfast love endures forever;
16 to him who led his people through the wilderness, for his steadfast love endures forever;
17 to him who struck down great kings, for his steadfast love endures forever;
18 and killed mighty kings, for his steadfast love endures forever;
19 Sihon, king of the Amorites, for his steadfast love endures forever;
20 and Og, king of Bashan, for his steadfast love endures forever;
21 and gave their land as a heritage, for his steadfast love endures forever;
22 a heritage to Israel his servant, for his steadfast love endures forever.
23 It is he who remembered us in our low estate, for his steadfast love endures forever;
24 and rescued us from our foes, for his steadfast love endures forever;
25 he who gives food to all flesh, for his steadfast love endures forever.
26 Give thanks to the God of heaven, for his steadfast love endures forever.

Snails Safe-Nails Washable Nail Polish Review

The views expressed in this review are my own, honest opinions and any claims should be verified on the sponsor's site.

As I've mentioned before, I LOVE nail polish!  I love being able to switch colors and get creative!  And now that I have daughters, I love being able to paint their little nails.  But I refuse to use regular, chemical-filled nail polishes.  They just aren't safe and I won't use something toxic on my sweet little girls!  Thankfully, I've found some great, non-toxic nail polishes recently!  And I'm thrilled to introduce you to one today! - SNAILS!  Snails, or "Safe Nails" is a non-toxic, washable nail polish!

I received a lovely red and a lovely pink for review...

WooHoo!  I love a good mail day!  And today was definitely a good mail day!  I came home this afternoon to find my FabFitFun VIP box had arrived!  If you've never heard of the FabFitFun VIP Box, its a box full of FABULOUS items selected by Giuliana Rancic and her team!  All of the items have to do with beauty, fashion, fitness, and wellness. This box is a little different, as it doesn't come once a month.  Instead, it comes 4 times a year - Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall.  Of course, the box I just received was their Summer box - and it really was FAB!
