Best Choice Products Outdoor Indoor Wood Rocking Chair Patio Porch Rocker - White

Disclaimer:  I was given products in this post for the purpose of review.  I was not paid to write this review
My nanny has several get together at her house during the year.  And each time we go to her house all the kids fight over one seat....  Her vintage white rocking chair.  I don't know what it is about this seat, but everyone wants to sit in it!  I tried to find one like it for my porch, but they all seem flimsy and not as well made as my nanny's.  That was until I went shopping out Best Choice Products.  As always they came through  not only with an affordable choice, but also a top quality choice that I know is going to last me for many years.

 I know you can't see much in the photo, but trust me when I tell you the rocker is super cute.  I like the real wood design, which makes it super durable.  The rocker is really easy to build, and the tool to build it even came in the box!!  It was as simple as must putting some screws into already predrilled holes.
I do really like the size, my son can sit on my lap and we still have a lot of wiggle room.  It is so relaxing after a long day at work to just sit on my porch in this rocker!!

    SMURFS: THE LOST VILLAGE

    Disclaimer:  I was given products in this post for the purpose of review.  I was not paid to write this review, all opinions are my own
    I remember as a little girl always watching the Smurfs and Snorks!  They were 2 of the best cartoons on tv :)
    I'm kind of impressed that 20+ years later the Smurfs are still going strong and a children favorite!
    The all new movie Smurfs: The Lost Village was just released last week

     

     
    SMURFS: THE LOST VILLAGE is also available on July 11 in THE SMURFS 3-MOVIE BLU-RAY COLLECTION, which includes The Smurfs and The Smurfs 2.
     

    Synopsis:
    In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting and thrilling race through the Forbidden Forest filled with magical creatures to find a mysterious lost village before the evil wizard Gargamel does. Embarking on a rollercoaster journey full of action and danger, the Smurfs are on a course that leads to the discovery of the biggest secret in Smurf history!
     
    Directed by Kelly Asbury (Shrek 2) from a screenplay by Stacey Harman (“The Goldbergs”) and Pamela Ribon (Moana) and based on the characters and works of Peyo, SMURFS: THE LOST VILLAGE is produced by Jordan Kerner and Mary Ellen Bauder Andrews; with Raja Gosnell and Ben Waisbren serving as executive producers.  Based on the characters and works of Peyo.  Music by Christopher Lennertz.  Imagery and Animation by Sony Pictures Imageworks Inc. 
     

    My boys and I have officially watched this movie every single night since it arrived in my mailbox!  It starts off by telling you the name of some Smurfs, Brainy Smurf because he is smart, nosy Smurf because he is Nosy, Clumsy Smurf because he is Clumsy and so on.  Then you get to Smurfette and they can't really figure out what her thing is!  In a beautiful adventure where the Smurfs save the day we find out exactly what a Smurfette is.  This is a great story about friendship, working together and doing the right thing.  And it is also a story about being who you are.

    Best Choice Products Cushioned Floor Gaming Sofa Chair Folding Adjustable- Purple



    Disclaimer:  I was given products in this post for the purpose of review.  I was not paid to write this review.


    I just can't get over how comfortable this game chair is!  The cushions are so plush and the material is super soft and  you can adjust it to sit as far forward or back as you want.  You can lay it all the way down to lay on it.  As an adult I am to big to lay on it, but my kids LOVE to lay on their bellys to pay their games.  My hubby and I do sit on it though, so even though it is to little small for us to lay on we can sit on it :)  Its a game chair the whole family can enjoy
    Oh and since I can lay it flat it makes it super easy to store under a bed when we are not using it!
    And it seems very sturdy, I have a feeling we are going to have this chair for a very

    Stubb's BBQ TAKING GRILLING FROM ORDINARY TO EXTRAORDINARY

    Disclaimer:  I was given products in this post for the purpose of review.  I was not paid to write this review.  All opinions are my own.

    My hubby likes to grill and I like not having to make dinner.  I am in charge or grocery shopping, so every week I load my cart up with stuff for the grill.  My hubby thinks we all just LOVE his food (which we do) but the truth is I love not having to cook as much.  It is win win for everyone!

    In my personal opinion though the brands he uses it what makes all the difference.   Through trial and error we figured out which ones taste good and which ones to avoid.

    Stubb's just happens to be at the top of the list or must have grilling essentials!  With the 4th of July right around the corner we wanted to try something completely new on our grill and I think we found a winner with Authentic, delicious brisket recipes straight from Stubb’s Legendary Bar-B-Q.  I have a feeling it will make for a memorable cookout with family and friends this Fourth of July. 

    Did you know that
    Stubb’s grandson and BBQ Expert Rocky Stubblefield offers his family secrets to creating perfect brisket from start to finish, sure to make any griller an expert, from selecting to prepping to slow smoking it on the grill.
           Stubb’s bold flavors come from real ingredients, with no artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners. It contains no high fructose corn syrup, which is the No. 1 ingredient in most national BBQ sauce brands.
          Original: Stubb’s signature sauce, is the real deal, the original.  It’s tangy tomato, vinegar, molasses and black pepper are gonna treat you right no matter what kind of meat you’re firing up on the grill.
    Stubb’s Legendary Bar-B-Q was founded by C.B. “Stubb” Stubblefield in Austin, Texas, and his picture appears on every Stubb’s sauce, marinade and rub, available in 85 percent of grocery stores nationwide. Today, Stubb’s grandsons, Rocky and Reggie Stubblefield, serve as
    Okay I know, I know it is cruel to tease you with all these yummy facts.  Thanks to the awesome people at Stubb's I am going to share an exclusive recipe with you!
