Beauty Week for Mom

I know Mother's Day was a while ago but I just love spoiling mom. Yes, both me and my own mom. I've found some amazing new products recently that I wanted to share with you as great just-because gifts to make your beautiful mom feel special.

If you want a simple gift then you should think about 42 BEES Slant Tip Tweezers or Easy Press Clippers. Both are things that the mom in your life probably uses every day and looses regularly. She'll be very appreciative of this thoughtful but practical gift as both of these items are top quality and will help her become her best beautiful self!
If you want to add a little to this special gift then Anaiti's Age Defying Face Cream and/or Moisturizer Cream would be a perfect addition to this gift. These are both amazing creams that will make your mom fill pampered and loved. 

And if you want to go really over the top and spoil mom then add some Stretch Mark Cream to the mix. This is an amazing product that will help your mom feel like herself again as it helps to heal years of scars. She'll be so appreciative of this special gift to spoil herself - and no one else.
Happy Shopping!

Father's Day at Best Buy - Part 2

So the other day I told you about what we're getting our dad for Father's Day and why I'm super excited about it. Today, I'd like to give you another fantastic Father's Day gift idea that most any dad would love - drones.

Now, I don't know much about drones other then that my husband thinks they are awesome. Best Buy is the destination for drones, including the new Solo™ by 3DR. Now is the time to explore for Father’s Day.

Solo can the dream drone as it can define its own flight, freeing users to focus on getting the shot. This intelligent drone is also the first to support full control of GoPro® cameras and deliver live HD video either wirelessly to your mobile device or through the controller’s HDMI port for live broadcasts. Isn't that cool?!? Now I think I want one too.

You can pick up your very own Solo drone at Best Buy today. I don't know who will be more excited you, your kids, or your husband...

Stubb Bar-B-Q Sauce Grilling Tips + Giveaway

rockygrillingNow that the warmer weather is upon us, it’s prime time to get out and barbecue. Rocky Stubblefield, Stubb’s Legendary Bar-B-Q brand ambassador and grandson of founder C.B. “Stubb” Stubblefield, offers a few tips and recipes he’s picked up over the years to make you the grilling hero of any barbecue, family gathering or even weeknight dinner. Stubb’s is the maker of authentic, premium, BBQ sauces, rubs and marinades and was founded by C.B. “Stubb” Stubblefield in 1968.

Stubb didn’t just make barbecue, he made friends, serving up his slow-smoked brisket, cole slaw and beans, all with his wide, trademark smile at his restaurant in Lubbock, Texas. It was during this time that Stubb first began bottling his now famous sauces at the request of his friends
Rocky’s Grilling Tips
Today, Stubb’s heritage lives on in his legendary sauces, marinades and rubs, continuing to make people feel good all over the world.
  • Use indirect cooking for larger meats (indirect is cooking away from the fire), and direct cooking for smaller meats (direct is cooking over the fire).
  • When marinating, beef chicken and pork can be marinated up to two days in a refrigerator. You should only marinate seafood for a few hours.
  • When using charcoal, allow coals to ash over before adding meat to the grill.
  • When cooking burgers, make a thumbprint in the middle of the patty before putting it on the grill. This will help the patty come out nice and flat (not puffy in the middle) and the meat will be cooked evenly throughout.
  • Soak vegetables in cold water before grilling – it keeps them from burning or drying out too fast.
  • For a juicier steak, let your meat rest for at least 10 minutes after it is done to allow the juices that were forced into the center of the meat when cooking to distribute throughout the steak.
  • Don’t cook ribs ‘til they are falling off the bone – ribs should be grilled until they begin to pull away from the bone, but you should be able to bite into and leave a bite mark as you eat it off the bone. Overcooked ribs become dried out and less flavorful – even a little bit mushy.
  • Clean grill after every use. You can use a ball of foil or an onion – just cut the onion in half, and while the grill is heating up, rubs the onion across it. The juices from the onion clean the grill and get it ready for use.

Now for the fun part! Head below for your chance to enter the giveaway below to win a personalized grilling set, Stubb’s branded spatula Stubb’s heavy duty, hand-carved cedar wood cutting board, Stubb’s hat, bag, T-shirt and $30 in Stubb’s coupons this fantastic set is worth $150!

Party in Rexburg, ID with Slide the City

You know I'm always on the lookout for fun family and couple events. Recently I was introduced to Slide the City which takes place in towns nationwide and I am very excited that they are coming locally so we can have a fun date activity this summer.

On Saturday, July 11th - East 7th St. in Rexburg, ID will be transformed as participants ride inflatables down this giant slide spanning three city blocks. With music, local vendors, and giveaways, this family friendly event promises to be a highlight of the summer. For a limited time, My readers SAVE 10% with promo code USFAM -- Get your tickets here! Participants can purchase a one, three or unlimited slide pass. Tickets are now available, starting at $13.

A portion of the event proceeds will be donated to Rexburg Rotary Club. Rexburg Rotary Club of Idaho founded on May 1, 1920 is an organization designed to provide service to the community, to the people of the world at large, to professions, and to the club.

Here are some answers to the questions that I had about this fun family event:

Is there an age or height limit?
-All who are over 46 inches tall and over 5 years old are invited to slide, but remember if you're under 18 you'll need to get a sign off from your legal guardians.

Are there group rates available?
-If you have a group with 20 or more participants send us an email.

What do you do to address water conservation?
-Water conservation is also a priority at our events. We strive to have zero environmental impact on the community. The Slide was designed to have zero water loss, and it treats and recycles the water safely and efficiently throughout the day. When permitted, we donate the water back to the community. Methods of disposal include local reclamation centers, parks, golf courses and other places dependent upon local regulations.

Don't forget, my readers will SAVE 10% with promo code USFAM for a limited time Get your tickets today!

UPDATE: Slide the City was so much fun! I loved having the day with my husband with this fun activity. The only downside was that at the end the wind picked up and started lifting the slide but other then that it was a blast! I can't wait to take my kids as soon as they are old enough. So much family fun!

Aroma Trees Fragrance Room Sprays

It's crazy how fast your kids grow! I can't believe that my little boys are turning into big boys. #Sigh Sometimes I wish they could stay little forever. One of the things I'm disliking the most is that my house is starting to smell like "big boy" - Ugh! We've tried a lot of different things to try to help the smell but one of the best things we've found so far is Aroma Tree Fragrance Room Sprays.

These sprays are biodegradable, environmentally safe and vegan friendly making them a great solution for most any home. We tried the Fresh Apple Cinnamon scent and the only downside I can find is that it makes me hungry. The scent itself lasted a very long time, over 12 hours in our bathroom,

This is a great solution whether you want to cover up stink like I do or have another need, like staging a home for sale. You can't go wrong with Aroma Trees Fragrance Room Sprays.
