My husband's loves to fish on the rapids for salmon. In fact, he has a 'secret' spot that he has great luck in ever year. Most often, however, her fishes for trout. We are lucky to live a mile away from a beautiful reservoir where my husband fishes quite often. I love going with him on our boat. (We make it a family outing and have a picnic!)
I decided to order my husband and my dad a Trout/Panfish subscription box to enjoy. I am excited to see how happy they are with their gifts!

Moms make the best bridesmaids. We’re used to dealing with complicated tasks with plenty of distractions around, which is why we are so good at planning and executing things. We also know the best wedding elements and can help the bride prepare for her special day like no one else.
Whether you are helping a close friend or a sister with her wedding, being able to help the bride realize her dream wedding is the most rewarding part of the experience. To help you excel further in your role as bridesmaid, here are the tools you can use to help you.
WeddingHappy is a comprehensive wedding checklist that helps with planning different kinds of weddings. The app acts as a personal assistant that reminds you of important tasks you still need to complete. With WeddingHappy at your side, you can help the bride plan her special day in a more organized way.
The app itself allows the wedding checklist to be shared with others, including with the groom, the bride’s mother, and other people involved in the planning. There is a reminder for everything so you really don’t need to worry about missing deadlines or forgetting about important parts of the ceremony.
Our Wishing Well
Ourwishingwell.com is another great tool to use when planning a wedding. The site acts as a digital registry. Using this site, you can help the bride decide on her list of items and assist her in completing – and sharing – her digital registry with others.
Since Ourwishingwell.com is a digital registry, sharing the completed registry with others is as easy as forwarding a link via email or messaging apps. Close relatives and valued guests can then open the registry and send gifts to the bride easily.
Our Wishing Well helps make the whole process of creating a registry a lot easier to complete. There is no need to spend hours at a retail store or wasting money trying to get the list completed. In fact, creating a registry can actually be fun.
As the name suggests, myPantone is all about colors. Choosing a color scheme for a wedding may seem like a straightforward task at first, but it gets quite complicated once you start to think about elements of the special day. This is where myPantone comes in handy.
The app can scan any item you like and determine its exact color. It can also generate a color palette based on one or two colors you choose. Helping the bride with her color scheme gets a lot simpler with this tool at your fingertips.
Another complicated challenge to deal with when planning a wedding is organizing invitations. This too is a challenge you can solve using a digital tool, and the tool we’re talking about is Paperless Post. The main feature of Paperless Post is digital invites that you can send via email, but the site also offers prints and physical invites at great prices.
So, are you ready to be a kickass bridesmaid? Now that you have these tools in hand, there is nothing you can’t do for the bride.
By this time of the school year, students, parents, and teachers alike are counting down the days until summer. Kids can’t wait to stay up late and not have to worry about school and tests, and parents are ready for a more relaxed evening that doesn’t involve homework and strict bedtimes. But what will your kids actually be doing once school ends? Will they still be learning and thinking creatively, or will they be spending most of the summer indoors, playing video games, only interacting with others via some sort of technology? Summer camps have been a staple in the lives of kids and teenagers for years, and there are many benefits to sending your child to camp. Read on to discover just a few reasons why summer camp can be beneficial to your child.
1. Summer Camp Teaches Children to Work as a Group
Attending summer camp teaches children skills that they will use for the rest of their lives. Problem-solving and working with others are just a few of the skills that children learn at summer camp. Summer camps are filled with group activities, and many of these activities are designed to get kids out of their comfort zone and talking to others. Many children gain a great deal of confidence, even during their short stay at camp. By working and interacting with a group of people, children are also exposed to different points of view and learn to think outside the box, putting themselves in someone else’s shoes. Working with others, completing challenges, and collaborating with new people in order to problem-solve are skills that will serve your child for the rest of his or her life.
2. Summer Camp Gets Children Away From Social Media
While some integration of technology in today’s society is good, children need the opportunity to get outside, take a break from video games or social media, and think creatively. It is important for children to learn to interact with peers in ways other than through social media or a computer screen and headphones. By participating in summer camp activities, your child has the opportunity to interact with “real world” people and situations and will also have the ability to see beyond the screen. Your child will have the opportunity to problem-solve and simply have a conversation with others, removed from technology. By taking a break from technology, they are able to see that there is more to experience than just their immediate world around them.
3. Summer Camp Keeps Your Child’s Brain Active
At summer camp, you can bet that your child’s day will be filled with activities. Camp activities get your child out of his or her comfort zone and allow them to expand their mind. Whether it’s problem solving or simply attempting something new, your child will experience new things and keep their brain active. Challenging activities, new experiences, and a change in scenery all help your child’s brain develop and increases their creativity. By staying active and trying new things, boredom is alleviated, even during those long summer months.
4. Summer Camp Allows Children to Make New Friends
Summer camp allows your child to make new friends who have similar interests. During the school year it is easy to get stuck in the same routine of going to school and playing sports or participating in after-school activities with the same people your child is around all day at school. By sending your child to summer camp, he or she has an opportunity to branch out and make friends with someone in a different social circle. If your child attends a camp that is geared towards a specific interest or hobby, your child will have the opportunity to make friends with someone who they already know shares their same interests. Your child will have the opportunity to develop lifelong friendships and create new memories with new people.
5. Summer Camp is a Learning Experience
At camp, your child’s day will be filled with activities. Whether it’s learning something from interacting with a peer or learning something from a new activity, your child will gain confidence with his or her newfound knowledge. If your child has a certain skill or interest, it’s often possible to find a camp that is geared towards his or her hobby. For example, Launch offers a summer camp that introduces children to computer programming concepts. With morning, afternoon, or full-day options, your child will learn about coding and computer programming, all while making new friends and gaining experience in a structured environment.
There are many reasons why your child should attend summer camp. Improving upon life skills, unplugging from social media, keeping the brain active, making new friends, and gaining new learning experiences are just a few of these reasons. In today’s fast-paced world, children rarely get the time to enjoy themselves while still learning valuable lessons. Your children will thank you for allowing them to create new memories and develop new skills that will last a lifetime.
Spring is here, and that means it is time to update your wardrobe with some sunshine ready, versatile styles!
Just in time for Spring, I discovered J.Jill clothing. When it comes to style we all have different shapes, sizes, and heights, so we all have so many different preferences. For me, I tend to prefer clothing that is more flowy on my body because no one likes being too hot. No matter where you live and what kind of weather you’re experiencing, J.Jill has pieces fitting for every season and style preference!
I was sent a few pieces from J.Jill's Monthly Collection to review. I'm really enjoying this month's styles. With the temperature heating up I prefer to wear more coverage so I don’t get sunburned. I thought these pieces were perfect for wearing outside with their lightweight and flowy feel, not to mention freedom to move around and comfort!
I think we can all agree that it’s nice feeling good in what you wear. For being a very simple person as I am, I usually tend to avoid patterns and anything that stands out too much. These pieces were perfect with the neutral colors, yet they made me feel prettier than just some 'plain Jane.' I kind of felt subtly sexy.
There are a lot of occasions these pieces can be worn to. For instance, they would be great for those working ladies on-the-go who need to look professional and feel comfort, yet perfect for a casual dinner party, or night on the town!
What pieces am I wearing?
I liked all of these, but my most favorite one was the Linen-Stretch Button-Front Crops in navy blue. I love how they hug my waist but I could easily move around because of the stretchy linen material with spandex. The buttons on the front were also a favorite feature of mine, because they look nice, but you actually can use the concealed side zipper to slide into them.
In the next picture, I am wearing J.Jill’s Cotton & Linen Boyfriend Pants, in white. These were also very comfortable and breathable. It’s nice to have a go-to pair of white jeans in your wardrobe, and these are perfect!
In this picture, I am in the Linen Side-Button Maxi Skirt. Isn't is cute? Once again, one of my favorite features that I love is the buttons! I also love the feminine flow, and unique style.
In the last picture, I have on the Essential Linen Shirt. I feel that this would also look good tucked into the skirt above. I love the color and the fact that this shirt has side vents making it extra breathable to wear. (This is a much appreciated feature, since we are currently stationed in Florida!)
For anyone who loves versatile, laid-back style and great quality clothing, J.Jill is the place to find just you’re looking for. They have something for everyone in unique styles, colors, and fits. From now on, while recommending stylish-comfort, I recommend, J.Jill!

NEW LINE FROM THE GRANDPA SOAP COMPANY PROMISES UNIQUELY NATURAL HAIRCARE
Originators of Pine Tar soaps start a new haircare tradition, with cruelty-free, naturally-formulated shampoos and conditioners
I am always on the lookout for natural hair care products, and so I was happy to get the chance to review The Grandpa Soap Company products. (I honestly thought that the products might geared more toward men or perhaps the elderly because of the name, but boy, was I wrong!)
The Grandpa Soap Company, one of the oldest continuously operating soap-makers in America, is introducing a new line of naturally-made hair care products. Formulated from proven, functional ingredients, Grandpa’s shampoos and conditioners round out a product line that is able to solve any skin and hair problem, the natural way.
The new haircare collection includes Pine Tar scalp-therapy shampoo and conditioner, which teams pine tar with the natural properties of tea tree oil to combat dry, itchy scalp.
Three additional shampoo and conditioner duos are being introduced to provide specific benefits: smoothing and nourishing Buttermilk for dry and damaged color-treated hair, purifying and rejuvenating Rosemary and Rose Clay to restore healthy hair shine, and clarifying and calming organic Witch Hazel to remove environmental build-up and oil residue.
All of The Grandpa Soap Company’s products are free of the harsh chemicals commonly found in bath products, including sulfates, parabens, phthalates, silicones, petroleum, and artificial fragrances and colors. They are gentle enough for daily use and safe for color-treated hair.
The company’s commitments to cruelty-free and environmentally sustainable practices are backed by third-party certifications, including Leaping Bunny and the National Celiac Association, for certified Gluten-Free. The packaging for Grandpa’s haircare products, including the 8-ounce tube and cap, are fully-recyclable and all components are made in the same facility, to reduce the company’s carbon footprint.
“As a mom, I understand how difficult it can be to keep a home free of unnecessarily toxic cleansers.” says Katherine Jarnigo, co-CEO of The Grandpa Soap Company. “We are excited to reveal our new line of shampoos and conditioners to families who are seeking responsibly-made and naturally-formulated personal care products.”
My thoughts: I was sent a generous assortment of samples from The Grandpa's Soap Company. I received several smaller sizes and several full-sized products. I am in Grandpa Soap Company heaven!
I have been using and loving all of the products in the month since I received them, but my very favorite hair care shampoo and conditioner is as follows:
Buttermilk Shampoo and Conditioner
My hair is highlighted and tends to be extremely dry. It takes a special nourishing and moisturizing shampoo and conditioner to keep my parched hair hydrated. The first thing I noticed when I used the Buttermilk shampoo, was that it smelled so amazing! And then the lather is so luxuriously rich. It felt exhilarating to wash my hair. As I was rinsing, I could actually hear my hair 'squeaking' which to me means that this shampoo was doing its job in cleansing my hair. It was leaving zero residue behind!
After rinsing out the shampoo, I actually lightly towel dried my hair before I applied the Buttermilk conditioner so that it would have a better chance of penetrating my damaged hair shaft. The first thing I noticed about this conditioner (besides the delicious fragrance) was how thick, rich and creamy it is. I worked it throughout my hair, and placed a shower cap on my head to keep on while I shaved my legs. This process allows the conditioner time to get the chance to repair the damage in my hair and to fully hydrate it. After rinsing it, and allowing my hair to air dry, I just cannot stop running my fingers through my hair because it is truly soft as silk.
Grandpa’s haircare products have suggested retail prices between $8.49 and $9.99, and are available nationally in supermarkets and independent, natural grocery chains. They can also be purchased online at Amazon.com, LuckyVitamin.com, and iHerb.com. For additional information or to find a local retailer, please visit Grandpasoap.com.

Versatile Stain Remover for Any Predicament
Stains can be difficult. Because different stains come from different substances, sometimes different chemicals are required for removal. With OxiClean Versatile Stain Remover, you can rest assured that any substance can be removed with this sole product!
A Microfiber Cloth for Streak-Free Surfaces
Cleaning windows and other surfaces can be challenging especially when the materials you use tend to leave behind residue and fibers.

Composed of melamine foam, the eraser has abrasive qualities that won’t scratch or harm your belongings.
A Multi-Purpose Powder Cleanser
Cleaning powder is especially convenient for several reasons. For one, it’s affordable. For two, it is useful for cleaning a variety of household surfaces. Barkeeper’s Friend Powder Cleanser is especially known for its sparkle power and shine.
Sturdy Hanging Strips for Pictures
While hanging strips aren’t ordinarily featured in cleaning articles, these ones are a must. 3M Command Picture Hanging Strips are sturdy enough to withstand the motions that cleaning can cause. You can be sure your photos and art will still be hanging by the end of it.

The weather is finally getting warmer and I am getting excited for Summer! The only problem is that I have areas of my body that I am embarrassed to show off. My problem area has always been my thighs. I am not overweight, but no matter how thin I am, I still have annoying cellulite and unshapely thighs.
I am traveling to Florida next month to visit my daughter and her husband and we will be spending a lot of time on the beach, so I was excited to have found out about a new fascia exercise program created by exercise physiologist Teresa Tapp. Finally, an exercise program that will help me improve the area of my body with promising results!
Tapp is a fascia exercise program that involves specific movements, designed to activate muscles, and is very effective at lengthening and strengthening muscle and bones, lowering blood sugar, balancing hormones, cinching in the core,reducing inflammation, detoxing, and losing 1 to 2 sizes in a single month with only 15 minutes of workout. You only do it 3-4 times a week for 15 minutes,following the DVD or online instructions at home. There is no equipment needed to do T-Tapp.
Here is a link to PBS host Alicia Steele in PEOPLE.COM, http://people.com/bodies/weight-loss-success-stori... who went from size 10 to size 2 in 4 months. She did the exercises at her home and also did Teresa’s 5-minute skin brushing routine. Which resulted inher having tight smooth skin after losing all the sizes.
“TheT-Tapp system is the ideal anti-aging workout. Highly recommended!”

Being a mommy is such an incredible experience. It’s also incredible to me how my body was able to grow our sweet little one, give birth and be able to feed her and help her continue to grow outside her womb. It’s a beautiful, sometimes scary and insanely personal process and we’re never really the same afterwards.
Physically, our bodies are more beautiful after birth. After all, the stretch marks, extra skin and unfading linea nigra line are all proof that we were able to create this gorgeous little human. But sometimes, it doesn’t always feel like it as our ‘before’ pictures can sometimes be more of our bikini body ideal and our ‘after’ can make us forget how incredible we are for what we’ve went through.
When it comes to looking the mirror post baby, we’re often harder on ourselves than we should be. It doesn’t help that our clothing options after baby aren’t very flattering and can make you feel anything but sexy, especially when it comes to the most vital item - your new nursing bra.
This absolutely does NOT have to be the case any more, however, because Oh La Lari’s nursing bralettes not only hear the need for comfortable, functional bralettes - they also have created a gorgeous, sexy bralette for new moms and mom’s to be!
I had to try one of these bras for myself and was so happy I did. They got it right, down to the packaging. These super soft, versatile, beautifully lacy bralettes instantly made me feel less like a milk machine and more like a sexy wife. At a time when body confidence can be at an all time low, it’s important to still take care of yourself and make yourself feel stronger as a woman.
This nursing bra makes looking in a mirror more flattering and helps show off one of the best post-baby body gifts besides baby (those awesome boobs)!! It’s also important to keep up your relationship and intimacy with your partner which can be the last thing on your mind when you’ve been running around changing blowouts and putting another load of ‘spit up’ clothes in the wash. It’s nice to have a company with products that understands the struggle and a bra that reminds you to take some time for yourself and your partner.
Oh La Lari was created by a mom herself whose goal is to promote self love and help women stay in touch with their pre-baby life, encouraging us to feel sexy and providing bras that are easy to nurse in and easy to love. This would be an awesome bralette to buy in pregnancy, too to make you feel a little more womanly when you can no longer see your toes! Be sure to add it to your registry, which is easy to do since they’re partnered with Babylist.com, or buy one or two for your friend’s baby shower! They will definitely be thanking you!!
