`Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.




I first heard of Amy Grant when I was a kid with her song, Baby, Baby. She has an amazing voice and just released Tennessee Christmas, a collection of Christmas songs, just in time for the holidays.

The CD has traditional songs, such as Baby, it's cold outside and Christmas, Don't be late (from the Chipmunks), but also some new favorites, such as Tennesee Christmas  and  I got my love to keep me warm. 

Amy is also asking for fans to upload any videos, they may have of surprising loved ones for Holidays to social media, using the hashtag #TNChristmasSurprise. A compilation video will be made and will be posted to Amy's social media.






You can purchase the CD using the link above. The CD also comes with Amazon Unlimited, mp3, and vinyl format. I didn't notice the CD in Prime Music. The CD is also on Google Music. If you got the all-access pass, the CD is available to listen to for free.

Bible Journaling Kit (FlyBy Blog Promotions)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.



I received the Bible Journaling Kit, in exchange for honest review from FlyBy Blog Promotions. The kit comes with a case (thought the case was a bible cover at first); stickers; tabs, pencils; an archival pen; and a clear sheet for making lines on blank sheets. I thought the kit would make a good start for someone to study the bible more or as a gift for someone else. Christmas is on the way. My mama would love this kit.

I love to journal. I have multiple notebooks, plus a notepad app on the Kindle to jot down thoughts. What stood out the most was the clear sheet for making lines on blank spaces. I have a few notepads, with blank pages, which the sheet would be perfect for.

You can purchase the kit, using the link above or any of the links to the other stores below. You also can enter to win one of five kits. Winners will be chosen December 15, 2016. The link has some adult coloring pages, you can download.

Food Memory Game Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.






I received Food, a matching game, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. Food is a puzzle -based matching game. Each puzzle piece shows half of a piece of food, such as cake. The goal is to match both pieces of the same food. The tricky part is all the pieces are the same size. I wanted the game for Kalen. Puzzles is one of his ARD/IEP goals. Plus, he needs to learn more food based words, especially chicken, hot dogs, turkey, and other meat is called chicken, while apples and oranges are called apples. He also knows salt, ice, water, cookie, and cake.

The game also helps improve hand-eye coordination and fine-motor skills. The pieces are made from a thick cardboard, which is easy to pick up. The pictures are bright and colorful. Your kids will enjoy matching with this puzzle game.

You can purchase the game, using the link above. The game is prime-eligible.

Consumer Associates Essential Oil Nebulizer Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.



I received Consumer Associates Essential Oil Nebulizer, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. The nebulizer requires assembly. The parts include the USB power supply (and wall charger); the base; oil holder, and top. The nebulizer differs from a diffuser because it does not use water. You fill the base of the nebulizer with essential oils and then turn it on. The nebulizer comes with four modes, including a continuous mode (hit the button four times).

Since there is no water, the smell of the oils is stronger and you don't have to operate it as longer. For stronger oils, such as lavender,  I had to turn it off before the cycle completed. You will have to dump out the oils after 24 hours of being in the nebulizer.

The nebulizer was easy to assemble and use. The scent fills the room faster than a traditional diffuser. I did have to be more careful when using the nebulizer around the kids because of the glass top and oil holder. The top does fall off with the slightest touch.

You can purchase the nebulizer using the link above. The nebulizer is prime-eligible.

Easy at Home Tens Unit Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.






































I received the Easy at Home Tens Unit, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. The unit came with the electrode pads, the electrodes, batteries, and the unit. I wanted a tens unit for lower back pain. You can also use the unit on shoulders, arms, waist, hips, etc.

The unit is entirely touch screen, with the exception of the power and intensity dial.  You choose the area to work on and the type of massage. There are three massages to choose from.  I connected one pad to one electrode and the unit did not work until I connected two pads. I used two pads at first, and then hooked up all four for a better massage.

Do not use the unit if you have a pacemaker or any other implanted medical devices. I had to use the unit when Kalen was sleep. Kalen has a pacemaker and wants to do everything I do, including mess with buttons, even on a tens unit. Also adjust the power and intensity slowly. Do not start off on the highest setting just in case, the tingling is too much.

From the amazon listing, do not use the unit on your face,  heart, and groin areas.

The unit was easy to assemble and easy to use. The maximum time for use is 60 minutes. You will have to restart the unit if you need more time.


You can purchase the unit,  using the link above. The tens unit is prime-eligible.

Feelings memory and match game review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.




I received Feelings, a matching game, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. Feelings is a matching/memory game. I got it for Kalen and Brad to help them recognize emotions. '

The pieces are made from sturdy cardboard, cut into square shapes. The kids can learn facial expressions and match pieces together. Brad has not taken to the game, but Kalen does like looking at the faces. The kids have not matched anything successfully yet, but hopefully in time, they will be able to match a few pieces.

Doodletopia Fairy Book Review (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.



I received Doodletopia Faires, in exchange for honest review from Blogging for Books. The book teaches people how to draw fairies. I had a few initial doodles drawn out but Kalen ripped those pages out my sketch pad (go toddlers). I wanted to try out the book because I love the draw. I am not a professional, but I do love to doodle and sketch when stressed.

The instructions were easy to follow. Some fairies may take some multiple erasing to get it right. The first few fairies, the book provides the face template for you to sketch on. The book is not a technical book--this book is for fun in teaching how to draw fairies. You don't have to worry about proportions, light, and other things, I forgot since graphic design school :-)

You can purchase the book, using the link above. The book is prime-eligible. The book comes in paperback format only.

Refresh (Kregel Book Tours)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.



I received Refresh, in exchange for honest review from Kregel Book Tours. The book was written by Kimberly M. Drew and Jocelyn Green.

I wanted to read the book because being a special needs parent is lonely, depressing, and frustrating. I need encouragement daily. Between the screaming; head banging (Kalen); and potty training issues, I feel on the verge of a break down any day now.

Brad is 16, Autistic with ADHD and a Creatine deficiency disorder. Brad is not potty trained, but hates being wiped. Brad doesn't like being told no. He throws things. He punches holes in walls (luckily, not here yet), and can get very aggressive towards people. Brad's mental age is 0 -6 months. Brad can walk, dress his self to a point, and eats like a regular teenager. Brad's latest incident was he broke a window at school. He also cracked my bedroom door.

Kalen has Global Development Delays; Autism; Sensory Processing Disorder; Creatine Deficiency Disorder; Sleep Apnea, and Static Encephalopathy. Kalen has a heart monitor and a pacemaker. Kalen is a helper monkey. He loves to help people, sometimes at a cost. Imagine using the bathroom and a toddler hands you one square of tissue at a time lol. Kalen also hates water in his face and head. Once, he climbed into the shower and got hit by a blast of water and was traumatized. He hid in the back of the tub and refused to move. I had to pick him up and calm him down. He did not speak or cry for hours that day.

Kalen functions on a 2-3 year range, mentally and functionally. Kalen had early intervention, occupational therapy; physical therapy; and preschool for children with developmental disabilities, but these services was not available when Brad was diagnosed. Brad fell through the cracks and functions at a lower level than his younger brother.

Trying to work with both of them is mentally draining. Don't let both need something at the same time because it can be too much.

At the end of each chapter, you do have a few questions to answer in a section called "digging deeper".


You can purchase the book, using the link above. The book comes in Kindle and paperback format. The book is prime-eligible.

Dilanni Plus Sized Body Con Dress (Tomoson)

Disclaimer: This post contains Amazon Affiliate Links.






























I received Dilanni Plus Sized Body Con Dress in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. I ordered the dress is black/navy in 1x. The front size was blue and it was runched. The back side is black lace. There is a slip between the front and back side.

The dress fit perfectly. I loved the length of the dress. The dress was longer than some of the other body con dresses I have. The breast area wasn't too exposed, when I used my genie bra but was slightly exposed when I used an exercise bra, as seen in the photos.

You can purchase the dress, using the link above. The dress is not prime-eligible. The dresses range from 0x to 5x. The dress also comes in black and porcelain and black and burgundy.
