NEW Exhibit at The Arizona Science Center | Lost Egypt : Ancient Secrets, Modern Science

Last week my daughter Sophia and I had the awesome opportunity to check out Arizona Science Center's newest exhibit through a campaign with Blended Extended. Actually we had never been to the Science Center before so this was a totally new and fun experience for us all around.

From May 31st - September 1st on the third door of the Arizona Science Center there is a fantastic limited time exhibit called Lost Egypt. The exhibit is based around the premise of how archaeologists use modern sciences to discover and understand ancient Egypt.

Prevent Going NoseBlind With Febreze + GIVEAWAY

This posts was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Febreze. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign. However, all opinions are 100% my own. #Noseblind
A major concern when it comes to having guests in my home is it's first impression. When someone walks in I want my house to be warm, friendly and most importantly smelling fresh !
I always sprits down my couches before guests come over with my favorite Febreze Fabric Refresher in Meadow & Rain.

Have you ever walked into your house after from being away for awhile and just thought dang, what it that smell ? Trust me, it has happened to the best of us. Sometimes we just become Noseblind to the fragrances around us. Which is exactly why I have become an avid Febreze user. My cupboard is always stocked with backups of my favorite Febreze products such as their Candles , Fabric Refresher and Air Effects. I actually think I own a bottle of Air Effects in every fragrance available! Yeaaa I may be a little obsessed with them. They are amazing! What are your favorite Febreze products ? 

Teaching Our Children Compassion | Get a Shot Give a Shot

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #GiveaShot 
Our main goal as parent is to teach our children to be contributing members of society. That includes everything from saving and spending money wisely to holding the door open for the next person. Now I personally believe that children naturally have caring hearts. That we adults should harness some of their selflessness and of course encourage it.

A great way to foster humanity is by participating in Walgreens, Get a Shot Give a Shot, Back to School immunization campaign.  Every time a child gets their required immunizations, like whooping cough and meningitis, the United Nation Foundation's Shot@Life will provide a lifesaving vaccine to a child in a developing country. This is the perfect opportunity to teach our children compassion.

Now when it comes to getting their vaccines, my kiddos are normally less than compliant. However, when I told my son that when he got a shot it would also help protect another child from a preventable disease, he stuck his arm out and said "Let's do it!" Yes I did shed a proud tear when he said this and we were just chatting about the program! He actually doesn't even need any required shots this year. It is exactly this kindhearted disposition that I hope and pray my children will hold on to throughout the rest of their lives.

EXCLUSIVE First Look : Skylanders Trap Team NEW Premium Toy Line | Eon’s Elite Characters

I don't know about you but I already have the Holidays on my mind. Halloween is practically here and I am already scouting out the latest and greatest ( and worth while ) Christmas gift ideas for our kids
As you may know from a press release in April, there will be a NEW Skylanders game coming out in October 5, 2014Skylanders Trap Team. I am crossing my fingers and toes that I will get the chance to review this for you guys before it hits the shelves. But in the meanwhile I am here to share with you some super cool ultra exclusive news. 

During the special “Skylanders: The Creative Process of Bringing Toys to Life” panel at San Diego Comic-Con on July 25, 2014, the best-selling kid’s toy/game franchise announced the new premium toy line “Eon’s Elite” that will launch this fall. The limited edition Eon’s Elite will introduce eight must-have collectible versions of fan-favorite Skylanders characters, beginning with Spyro and Chop Chop. 

I have a soft spot for Spyro, he is my personal favorite. I used to play the original 'Spyro' game on my little gray Playstation console after school everyday. Did you play video games growing up ?
Both of my kids, especially my son, are Skylanders super fans. I my son has finished all three games like ... five times and he is only 5 ( almost 6 now) years old. I think I've told you guys before how he has begged me to let him make his own blog and YouTube account. So he could share his gaming and regular you playing tips with other kids ? He cracks me up ! 

Anyways back to the subject, these Eon’s Elite characters will feature never-before-seen decoration. With a distinct, metallic finish and a golden base that sets them apart from other Skylanders toys.  

Each of these special edition toys will be offered in premium foil packaging and also features a display case with a 3D lenticular background. Additionally, when played in-game, Eon’s Elite will be up to three times as powerful over other characters, which represents the biggest in-game boosts ever incorporated into a Skylanders toy to date. 

Eon’s Elite characters will be available in limited quantities at GameStop and EB Games stores in North America, Australia and New Zealand, and select retailers in Europe this fall while supplies last.

 Comment below and tell me ... 
Are these Premium Eon’s Elite characters & Skylanders Trap Team on your Holiday shopping list ?
