The Importance of Raised Flooring Infographic


Hey there, friends. Who knew that your flooring can make a difference on how you feel in a room! Especially in a hot climate. You know, I live in the high desert area of California and now that Summer is here, a cool home is a must. Part of my floor is tile and the other part is carpet, and I'm thinking that the carpet portion of the flooring has got to go. It just feels so much more hotter in the carpeted area than the tile area. Well, after looking into flooring and the types of flooring out there, our friends at DataSpan put out a great article on the benefits of raised flooring. I thought it was pretty interesting and figured I'd share the infographic with you guys. Check it out below:

Moroccan Argan Oil by RoseMyst Review

Moroccan Argan Oil
Hey there.  I've had long hair for most of my life.  I've made a conscience effort to let my hair grow for about 7 years and then donate my long locks to charity.  Because of this, I need to make sure that my hair looks healthy and stays healthy.  One of the things that I found unpleasant is the frizz.  I found that when my hair was frizzy, I couldn't style it or control it... and if I let it loose, I found myself breaking strands of hair left and right.  Luckily, my wife introduced me to this stuff called Moroccan Oil in effort to control that frizz and keep my hair healthy.  I tried quite a few Moroccan Oils, actually.  Some felt real heavy, like actual oil, others were soft but smelled like crap.  I was ready to drop the stuff until I tried this Moroccan Argan Oil by RoseMyst.  Oh man, this is some of the good stuff and it's relatively cheap too!  Before I get into my experience, let's talk specs!

Hasbro Gaming Star Wars Game Pack and Giveaway

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Hasbro. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
Hey there. Who's excited about the new Star Wars movie coming out next month?!?!  Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters on Dec. 18th and I simply can't wait to take the family to go see it.  I've been a fan of the Star Wars series for quite some time now and once the kids were of age, they watched the movies with me.  Watching movies eventually turned into getting Star Wars stuffs.  Mostly, its clothing or toys.  We have our fair share of Star Wars T shirts that we wear the kids have their Star Wars toys that they play with.  Some of the latest Star Wars additions to our family have come courtesy of Hasbro Gaming.  We already own a few Hasbro Gaming board games (ie. Monopoly Empire and The Game of Life: Junior) but now we can add 3 more family fun games to our collection to keep us entertained while we wait for Star Wars Episode VII:  BOP IT! Star Wars R2-D2 Edition Game, Star Wars Loopin' Chewie Game, and Electronic Catch Phrase: Star Wars Edition Game!  Check them out!

The Case of the Missing Wedding Picture

Jack and Sally Kissing
Our wedding picture.  Well... not quite but pretty damn close!  lol
Hey there. Every weekend, for the past month or so, the wife and I have been working our butts off to make our house a home.  We've put up furniture, we've put up curtains, we've picked up couches, we've set up our kitchen, we cleared out our garage, we've set up our rooms, we even got ourselves a new TV.  But you know what... it still didn't feel like home.  Like my wife mentioned last weekend, it still feels like we're staying in a hotel.  Hmmm...  It sucks when your house doesn't feel like your home, but we realized why!  We had absolutely NO pictures up on the walls.  NONE.  We've spent so much time and energy setting everything else up that we didn't bother with the pictures.  Well, that's the project we handled last weekend!

Organization has Never Been Easier with a Brother P Touch Labeler

Hey there.  Wow... what a month it's been!  I started off this month with a project in mind:  get that garage all sorted out and organized.  I made mention how the garage is in total shambles!  How can it not be?  With 4 active kids constantly going in and out and placing their stuff all over the place it's a definitely a challenge to keep it all in order.  I used the Brother P Touch Labeler as my guide to get things in order.  Everything from bins to shelves were laveled and organized.  In the end, organization is a lot better and a lot easier.  It's still not 100% where I would like it be, but I think that's because it's just going to take the family some time to getting used to putting things where they belong!  lol  So, here are some of my thoughts of the Brother P Touch Labeler!

Time to Tackle Organization with a Brother P Touch Labeler

Hey there.  It's time to tackle the garage.  Spring cleaning season is in full effect and Summer is just around the corner.  That means that stuff needs to be cleaned and organized because once Summer rolls around, everyone is going to be looking for their Summer stuff.  Whether that be the slip and slide, summer toys, the cooler, or the beach chairs.  Our Summers in Southern California are usually spent at the beach and, though it's one great time for the family, getting all of our stuff ready for the trip never is.  "Mom, where is my football!"  "Dad, I can't find the cooler!"  "Mommy, where is my water gun?!"  If you're a parent, you know the drill.  Nobody can find anything when it's time to go.  But you know what?  That's not going to happen this year.  We're prepared.  Well... at least we're going to be.  Thanks to our good friends at Mom Central, we have obtained Brother P Touch Labeler!  I know it's not a miracle worker, but it's going to make our lives a lot easier!  Let me explain.

Hey there.  You know what the worst part of Winter is?  The fact that you need to protect your plants and grass from the cold conditions.  Those of us with snow know that it will eventually kill your grass and those of us with much cooler air know that patches of grass are going to end up dying.  Before Spring starts, you'll have a patch of grass here, yellow grass there, and dirt patches in between.  For the lawn enthusiats, it's a time to plan for lawn care for Srping.  Well... at least that was the plan BEFORE discovering Scotts® Snap® Spreader System!

New House

Guest post from: Natalie Walter

When we first saw our new house, we knew it was the one for us. We wanted the house, but we didn’t want to show our hand to the sellers. We went back and forth with them for weeks on the price until we agreed. There were points in time when I thought we were playing too hard, but my husband did not want to give up. He knew that the market was weak, and wanted to get a great price on the house. The house has a huge yard, and so many other wonderful features. It came fully equipped for an alarm system with ADT Equipment. It also had a sound system that went through the whole house. The inside space was open, and free flowing, while the outside space was well manicured and had a large swimming pool. The kids were so excited to move into a bigger house, and have their own rooms, that they told us they would do the yard work for a whole year! I think that might be the best part of moving in!

Getting Screwed by Bank of America... Again


Hey there.  I have strong disdain towards Bank of America.  Throughout my years, they have managed to screw me over with my checking account, a credit card, and now my home.  Or should I say, previous home.  That's right, the bastards took my house.  It's a long story, one that starts about 2 years ago, but the stress didn't amp up until March of this year.  So here's the story...

TGI Fridays "Entree for One" is Making Dinner Easy for Dad's Everywhere

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of T.G.I. FRiDAY'S for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
EntrĂ©es For OneHey there.  As of late, my wife has been out of commission.  Since she had surgery (more on that real soon), she's been confined to her bed resting.  That leaves me to tend to her, the kids, and the house work and let me tell you something... it's hard work!  Between the cleaning, the laundry, the dogs, the kids, and all other chores, I need to think about dinner.  Now, let's get this straight.  I'm no Chef Ramsey.  Yeah, I can get some of the basics down and they're more than edible (I think so at least) but mac and cheese and hot dogs can get pretty old pretty fast.  That's why I've turned to quick and easy cooking during my time as both mom and dad.  Good thing that T.G.I. FRiDAY’S “EntrĂ©es for One” has been perfet for our family.

Feeling Refreshed with the Febreze Set and Refresh Scented Oil Kit

Hey there.  Have you seen those Febreze commercials where they blindfold a person, place them in a filthy room, and have them describe the smell?  I'm sure you had the same thought that I had when you first saw it.  There's no way that a small scented air freshener will make a room like that smell fresh.  There's just no way... right?  Well let me tell you about my Febreze Set and Refresh experience.

I Need a Stainless Steel Sink

Hey there.  You know... I'm getting pretty tired of looking at the blue (yup... blue) ceramic type sink  that is sitting in our kitchen.  We had always said that we would get rid of it when we first bought the house and get one of those stainless steel kitchen sinks that look classy and nice.  We've always thought that stainless steel items in the kitchen make it "pop" and we figured that a stainless steel kitchen sink is exactly what we need.  Considering that the labor day weekend is coming up, I think I might get to changing it.  I think it's definitely time.  Later!
