Q Wunder

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


Parents, did you know that social and emotional skills, not academics, have been found to be a better indicator of a child’s future success in their career, relationships, health, and happiness? If not, it’s time to join a movement! Thanks to Sofia Dickens, a Harvard alumna, mother of 3, and Founder of Q Wunder , helping your child learn self control, problem solving, manners, empathy, resilience, leadership and social skills has never been more simple and fun. 

Through a specially developed app, kids show, games, story books, and more, you can help them on their way to school readiness and the development of these crucial like skills. 

And they learn all this by having fun!  Not by being lectured or by reading it from a book.  They learn it by playing and interacting with others.
here are a few of the products offered to help little ones develop these skills

Q's Race to the Top Boardgame 
In the game “Q’s Race to the Top,” children can help Q race to the top of his tree house by answering questions and performing fun actions. The questions are designed to promote feeling identification and verbalization, manners, social skills, creative thinking, balance, and coordination.

This lovable plush Q becomes a furry friend that helps develop focus and attention span with a simple breathing exercise. The perfect cuddle buddy for the daily quiet time your little one needs to slow down breath and control emotions. Perfect for the classroom, car rides, and at home. 




And these are just 2 of the many items offered!!  There is also a fun app 
EQtainment has also developed one of the first measurement tools designed to help parents identify and improve their children’s social and emotional skills with customized content delivered via our Q Wunder app.

Kernel Season's review

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


Kernel Season's review 



The Miller's are a popcorn eating family.  We like buttery popcorn, sweet popcorn, savory popcorn and even cheesy popcorn.  We just love it, whenever I ask the kids if they want to watch a movie, it goes without saying that popcorn will be there!  
And guess what
Kernel Season's took our beloved snack and make it better!  You simply choose your favorite flavor fill the cap and dump it on!  Not only do they have yummy Seasonings, but they also have popcorn oil and actual popping corn.  Oh wait they aren't done yet, they also offer Drizzle Brittle!  And yes dear readers it is as good as it sounds!  I could spend an entire post telling about all the great flavors and flavor combinations you could do, but instead I want to tell you about the products I was able to review.
I went sweet, so I was able to review

Drizzle Brittle Chocolate 

When the rich taste of chocolate hits the brittle crunch of popcorn, it transforms it into a candied treat. But the fun really comes from pouring on just the right amount of Drizzle Brittle to satisfy your sweet tooth.

The fun starts when Caramel Drizzle Brittle’s real caramel hits the brittle crunch of popcorn. Keep pouring it on to create a deliciously unique candy-coated treat. After all, you can’t have too much of a good thing.

No melting. No glazing. Just shake on our Caramel Corn seasoning for the sweet, buttery caramel taste you crave.

A Chicago tradition

Kernel Season’s wanted to share our hometown's legendary mix of sweet, buttery caramel and savory cheddar cheese.

Chocolate lovers, rejoice!

A quick sprinkle of Milk Chocolate Caramel seasoning turns popcorn into a chocolaty indulgence thanks to a combination of real cocoa, cane sugar and butter.

Nothing beats the sweet and salty taste of county fair kettle corn

Made with real cane sugar, our Kettle Corn seasoning lets you capture that flavor at home.

Ever single one of these taste amazing!!  The cheesy caramel may not be a hit with everyone, but my hubby LOVES IT!  Each seasoning is rich in flavor and lets everyone coming back for more.  I went from making one bowl of popcorn to having to make 2!  And with all our new choices I have to make 2 center bowl and everyone wants their own little bowl so they can make their own flavor.  My kids like to mix and match.  I have to admit their chocolate Carmel creation is pretty freaking amazing!
If you want to check out all the flavors for yourself please see my link below.  I promise you wont regret it!

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.
If you don't know that my family loves playing games you must be new to The Simply Me Blog.  Game night is kind of a big deal in my house.  It is something we look forward to and even invite friends and family over to enjoy.  We play board games, video games and there was that one time we played captured the flag outside.  My parents were not a fan of that one, so we since stopped playing that.
The only thing that stinks about playing video games is I only have 2 controllers.  So we do play on teams, but if we have a houseful of 10 people, not everyone gets equal time on the game.  That is why I love the Jackbox Party games!  Your device is your controller!  Meaning as long as you have a phone you can play, and for people (Like my kids) who don't have a phone, they can use my kindle or even laptop to get in on the fun :)

SNIFF & BARKENS

I was given products in this post for the purpose of review.
My pups get just as excited about the holidays as my kids.  No they don't do count down like my kiddos, but come Christmas morning when everyone runs out to the tree for gifts they are right there with us.  And as we begin to unwrap their tails go a mile a minute waiting for me to get to one of the gifts with their name's on it.  Loki is my brat, he thinks all the gifts are for him.  Emma is my snob, she doesn't want toys she waits for the treats and Rufus is my goof.  He is more excited over the wrapping paper then he is his gifts.  Their joy is contagious though and normally has us off laughing.  
This year I am excited not only for my pups, but also for your pups and the reason is Sniff & Barkens
Imagine a holiday gift that will delight dogs ... and their two legged parents! 

Envision a 5-gallon easy-to-open, yet dog-proof reusable Bucket covered with delightful dogs created by TADO and celebrated designer, Paul Budnitz, sure to become a collectors' item. 

Visualize this Bucket is filled with six favorite dog toys from Hartz!  The toys include the Hartz Tuff Stuff Nose Divers, Quackers, SqueakerZ, Dura Play Ball, Dura Play Bone and Chew 'N Clean.

What you've imagined is Barkens Bucket, a Bucket full of goodies named for one of the signature dogs in possibly the fastest growing dog-focused social media platform in the last two years: Sniff & Barkens.
 
"Our passion for pets is at the forefront of everything we do and we are excited to partner with Sniff & Barkens on this Holiday Bucket, which will benefit the Pilots 'n Paws Rescue that helps animals in need," said Stacy R. Kisla, Senior Director of Marketing for The HARTZ Mountain Corporation.

10% of the proceeds from each Bucket helps save innocent displaced animals!

Sniff & Barkens, along with presenting sponsor Hartz, created this Bucket full of toys as a unique holiday gift that also helps save dogs' lives.  This $50+ value is being offered to Sniff & Barkens' millions of followers for $34.99, with a portion of the proceeds going to Pilots N Paws, a nonprofit organization that provides life-saving transports and rescue missions for dogs.

 "Our goal is to bring joy to furry family members while supporting an organization that helps save the lives of other dogs," said Joe Pappalardo, founder of Sniff & Barkens.  "We're delighted Hartz came on board as our presenting sponsor, helping us raise funds for Pilots N Paws, which provides invaluable services, especially in times of crisis like the recent hurricanes that devastated communities and displaced not only thousands people, but also thousands of dogs."

The Barkens Bucket will be available for order at https://shop.SniffandBarkens.com/ until Nov 28th.

Lego's making memories

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 have so many amazing Christmas memories growing up as a kid, but only a few bad.  I remember my brother and I would sneak up each Christmas morning and peak at our gifts before our mom and dad got up.  We use to try and get my younger sister up, but she was always afraid to get in trouble for being out of bed.  After we peaked, we would try to get my parents up.  They would never get up, so we would go out into the living room and watch the 101 Dalmatians Christmas special (MY mom lost that VHS TAPE!!  I was so mad lol)  I also remember the year I got a horse for Christmas, I spent the rest of Christmas outside with him.  But there were also the bad memories, my parents fought all the time.  And even though we always got "gifts" for Christmas there was no family time.  One of the worst Christmas was when my mom flipped out and left the house for a few hours.  In a temper fit my dad left too!  It was a very scared 12 year old me, a 7 year old Luke and an even younger Brittany.  I didn't know what to do, my brother had gotten a huge Lego set that year.  I decided to build the set with them.  Whenever I needed a piece I would tell them what color and to look for.  Sometimes I would mess up on purpose and let them help me figure out what I did "wrong."  That Lego set would have normally only took me 40 minutes to put together, but I dragged it out for 2 hour.  
Every year after that my brother would get a Lego set and we would put it together.  It became a tradition.
I never knew if they remembered why we started it, they were kind of young.  It wasn't until my youngest son turned 6 and my brother got him his first "big kid" Lego set.  As my son sat their in awe, my brother winked at me and told my son we use to have a family tradition of putting together Lego sets on Christmas.  He then looked at me and said hopefully this one doesn't take 2 hours like that first set did.  I could tell by my brother's face what he was talking about.  He hugged me then and we restarted the family tradition of Lego building Christmas night!!  Now they still take 2 hours to build. Not because I am trying to keep 2 little kids calm, but because we are eating, watching Christmas movies and so much other stuff as we build!

My son is 10 this Christmas so it has been going on for a couple of years now.  This year I still didn't get our big set, but I did grab a few cool littler ones

Lugz for me, Lugz for you Lugz for EVERYONE!!

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

Several weeks ago I got my hubby a pair of Lugz sneakers and my boys were heart broken!  They looked at me as if I done the unthinkable by getting my hubby something and not them!  It was even worse when my oldest went onto the website and found a new pair of boots that he loved.  He already loved the brand and he just could not believe I would get 'dad something instead of him.'  So I decided you know what I'll just get him the boots!!  He out grew last year's....  Yes but so did Quinn.  Dear readers this mama is a push over.  My boys are now sporting new boots!!

Honestly though I love this brand, so it was no hardship for me to go onto their site and pick out 2 boots for my kids.  And by pickout I mean my boys took me to the site and demanded I get them the pair of their choosing.
I wanted to share both of the boots with you, and honestly if you are looking for boots for your little ones Lugz is the way to go!  Their boots are durable and can stand up to little kids play, they are comfortable as well.  My boys never complain about "them pinching" their feet.  

Also they are water proof!  I hate when we are outside playing in the snow and we have to come in because someone feet got wet from snow leaking through their boots.

Okay here is a little about the 2 pairs we were able to review
Empire hi preschool

This boot has the perfect blend of style and comfort to protect your feet year round.

The Family Honor Plate #HonorPlate #FlyBy

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.
A few years ago my boys got a "prize" in their Chick-Fil-A meal that changed they way we do dinner.  It was family questions.  Basically you ask a question and everyone answers.  Some of them were silly, some of them were sweet, but all of them brought us closer together.  After we asked all the questions from that set we start to make up our own.  Each night one person was responsible to come up with 3 questions.  Don't get me wrong there is always repeats, but I just love the fact it gets my family talking!

This is something I wish all families would do, I hate when I go to a friends house and instead of talking to each other at dinner they all have out their phones and are texting.  To me dinner is the perfect time to talk to your family, ask about their day and make just connect.  I think The Family Honor plate and the table Thyme Discussion cards are the perfect way to get families talking about!

About the plate: Step #1 MOM AND DAD - BE THE EXAMPLE. BE THE ROLE-MODEL: The virtues are listed in the center of the plate for mom and dad to use as their anchor, their moral compass to guide them in how they need to show up for and to their children.  This is how our children learn what character (Christ's Character) is, what it looks like, what it feels like. Our children are watching us and learning from us.    
Step #2 BE ON THE LOOKOUT: Look for the good choices and attitude your kids/spouse are making and showing throughout the day. Track it back to the virtues and character it shows. 
  Step #3 CELEBRATE THEIR CHARACTER: Turn dinnertime into a celebration when you catch someone making good choices and showing good character and present their meal on the FAMILY HONOR PLATE.  
This is when you: ·      Talk about the choices they made and the virtues and character that it showed (Be specific). ·      Talk about how they made everyone involved feel and the impact they had on people and how that is POWERFUL and BEAUTIFUL. About the cards: Every question is followed up with "Why?" to take everyone's answers to a deeper more intimate level.  That's where the magic is and the real conversation starts. So now when even a simple question such as..."What is your favorite dessert?" for example, rather than someone answering "Apple Pie" and then moving on to the next person, the whole family gets to walk down memory lane because it reminds them of Grandma Smith who always made apple pies with them when they came to visit." Her house always smelled of fresh baked pies and she gave the best hugs when we walked in the door."  Communication is the key to connecting, building and maintaining healthy relationships.  When we are raise our children to be confident in their ability to communicate with others and get their point across, situations are less stressful and they have better outcomes.

Evanger's Dog Food

I was given products in this post for review.  All opinions are my own

Evanger's Dog Food


My pups got a special treat this weekend when our samples of Evangers Dog Food arrived!  They have eaten Evanger's Pet food before, so I knew even before I gave it to them that it was going to be a hit.

Just like every time I buy them Evanger's they cleaned the bowl before I was even done putting the can into our recycling bin!


Evangers is a brand I can feel safe giving to my pups and here is why:
All Evanger's foods are made with completely human-grade, highly palatable and nutritious foods that will satisfy even the most finicky eater.

They have no soy, corn, wheat, artificial ingredients, harmful additives, preservatives or by-products, 

Not only do they offer your pet a variety in taste, their gourmet dinners offer the additional nutritional benefits your pet needs. Natural Vitamins and minerals are blended with the all-natural meats for ultimate nutrition that are completely balanced meals for all life stages, ages, and breeds.

And just like people pets want different taste when eating!  How boring would it be to eat the same thing every single day!  At Evanger's they have a HUGE selection of foods.

I was sent several cans of wet food to review with my pups.  To give you and idea of the flavors they offer I will list them all here:
Braised Beef Chunks
Hunk of Beef Au Jus
Slow Cooked Turkey Stew
Chicken & Brown Rice
Whitefish and Sweet Potato
Pheasant and Brown Rice


Don't lie to me!  I know that list had a few of you hungry lol
You can see from the names alone a lot of nutrition goes into the food.
Their ingredents are fresh, natural and have no by-products.

Only the best of the best go into their pet food!
I love my pups I want them around for as long as possible, it all starts with feeding them right!


Not only do they have pet food, but they also have pet treats!  This way your pets can eat right all the time

They even have Gently dried treats that are hand cut!!  I love these because not only are they safe for my pups I can also feed them to my pet rat!!

Kidz Gear Headphones

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 have no sense of direction.  There I admit it!!!  No one tell my hubby though, lol.  When we go on vacation the only reason we make it from point a to point b is my gps.  Without it, we be done for.  I do love my GPS, but when the kids have a movie playing or a game going it can be really hard to hear it.  That is why headphones are a must in the car.  That way only they can hear their game of movie.  I don't want just any head phones though, I want ones that aren't going to hurt their developing ears.
Kidz Gear Headphones fit the description perfectly!

Kidz Gear Bluetooth Stereo Headphones for Kids: designed specifically for children with no tangled wires, the wireless Bluetooth Headphones provide easy Bluetooth 4.0 set-up with KidzSync™ Auto-Syncing Technology and a high-quality audio experience for children.

And I love that not only are these perfect for the car, my boys also use them when they are playing their PS4 games!!  Don't waist your money on those super expensive sets.  These work perfect, my boys can hear and talk to their little friends online!

#ad HORMEL GATHERINGS® Party Trays

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 am the only person who only gets to start watching games at half time?  Because I spent the whole first time in the kitchen whipping up food?  And don't get me starting on birthday parties, I spend so much time getting my kids food and cutting them "just right" that by the time I go to get my own all the good stuff is gone!!
When it is finally time to sit down at Thanksgiving dinner I am exhausted!  After 3 days of baking, several hours of cooking and what I know is going to be another 2 hours of doing dishes I just want to give up.  

No more dear readers I am taking the easy way out!!  Bring on the stress free parties!  That is right folks, this mama is going to start enjoying her holidays, football games and birthday parties.
 instead of dreading them.  The first step is make my prep easier.  I do enjoy baking, so I will keep making my pies.  I love trying new recipes so this isn't something I dread I actually look forward to it.  I also plan to make the turkey, lets admit it, there is no way out of that one.  But everything else I am taking the easy way out.  I am getting precooked potatoes and just heating them up, I am getting already made rolls and again just heating them up.  My mac and cheese is going to be another thing I just need to heat up.  
And my buffalo chicken dip, we cannot watch a football game without that.  
And my predinner/game day snacks are going to be a breeze too, thanks to Hormel Gatherings!  All there trays are already presliced. 


 All I need to do is remove the lid and tada they are ready to serve! 
Not only are these great for the holidays, but they are also awesome for football game day and even just family movie night.  We have a group of friends we always invite over for family game night.  It has kind of become a tradition for me to get a Hormel Gatherings tray.  The one time I tried to just make "MY OWN" version and everyone told to never do it again!  My food wasn't sliced right and the cheese to meat portions were way off!

With Hormel you always get the right cheese/meat/cracker portions.  And they are cut perfectly, when I cut up meat my family swears it looks like I did it with a chain saw.  Also Hormel Gatherings trays are always fresh!  All the contents in these trays are individually wrapped to keep them fresh.  
  The only thing that kind of bothers me is the price.  They are not the cheapest, but for me being able to enjoy time with my family instead of making snacks is so worth the cost.  


And lets be honest, when your guest are happy I consider it a win!  I get to sit down and enjoy their company and they still get to enjoy yummy snacks at my house!  You can find Hormel Gatherings Party Trays at several different locations.  I get mine at Walmart :)

Lego Worlds

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 have a family of gamers, over the weekend we had to buy a new PS4 because we got tired of deleting games to make room for new ones!  And the next one of the chopping block was my game!!  I only have 1 people that I love playing, in my mind it just made more sense to get a whole new system.  With LOTS AND LOTS of storage!  With that said when my boys realized just how much room we now had they went a bit crazy and one of the games they been asking for is Lego Worlds!  And I am so happy I finally let them get it, this game is so fun!  Even I liked playing it

EXPLORE. DISCOVER. CREATE. TOGETHER. LEGO® Worlds is an open environment of procedurally-generated Worlds made entirely of LEGO bricks which you can freely manipulate and dynamically populate with LEGO models. Create anything you can imagine one brick at a time, or use large-scale landscaping tools to create vast mountain ranges and dot your world with tropical islands. Drop in prefabricated structures to build and customize any world to your liking. Explore using helicopters, dragons, motorbikes or even gorillas and unlock treasures that enhance your gameplay. Watch your creations come to life through characters and creatures that interact with you and each other in unexpected ways. In LEGO Worlds, anything is possible!

Okay so I want to say the graphics are pretty cool, I like seeing our digital creations come to life. And even though space is no longer an issue for me, I did like the fact it didn't take up much.  You can do two players, which is great with two little boys a lot of fighting tends to happen when they can't play at the same time!  The play is pretty unlimited.  My kids are always finding new things and doing little quest.  It kind of reminds me of a Lego version of minecraft.  We have played our fair share of Lego games and this one def. makes top 3.  It is pretty hard to be better then Lego Dementions and our Lego Lord of the Rings game!
