FIRST Wild Card Tour: Havah

Experience the epic dawn of mankind through the eyes and heart of Eve---the woman first known as Havah. Made by God in a manner like no other, she lived in utter paradise until one fateful decision changed everything. Now all humanity suffers for her mistake. Discover what she felt when all innocence crumbled.

I generally enjoy books that are written as a fictional account using Biblical truths.  I often wonder what the women of faith that I read about within the pages of the Bible felt when faced with sorrow, joy or hardship.  It's difficult to meld fiction with truth however, and a lot of authors fall short of the mark.

Great T-shirts for All Kinds of Guys & Gals (Giveaway)

Buying clothing for yourself, your best friend or your daughters is usually an easy task, you just know what they like, pick it up and are done.  But then there are the men in your life...

I don't know about you, but for me personally, I find it difficult to shop for the guys.  The ones in my life (Husband, Brothers, Dad), all have different tastes and personalities, and even though I think I know what they like, especially when it comes to clothing, I find it tough to find the 'right' piece of clothing.

Switched-On Schoolhouse Series: Tiny Tutor

I write the Switched-On Schoolhouse Series twice a month to share our family's experience using this software based curriculum in our home.

One of the things we have really come to enjoy in regards to the Switched-On Schoolhouse software is the Tiny Tutor, which are the embedded video clips that are peppered throughout the lessons.  These tiny video boxes (hence their name "Tiny Tutor"), further explain or expound upon the information that the student is learning, where text just isn't quite enough.

The Great Purge of 2011

I had a number of New Years Resolutions on my list this year.  

1) Maintaining my weight (so far so good)

2) Drinking more water (doing really well, using the Britta Water app on my iTouch, I'm keeping track and am getting a B grade with my water intake!)

3) Purging unused, unwanted and unnecessary stuff in my home.

Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque Giveaway

If you have very dry, brittle hair, you'll be happy to know about a product using macadamia oil that is quite effective in treating dry, brittle hair.  Macadamia oil's unique composition gives it an uncanny similarity and compatibility to your body's own nautral oils.

Not only that, but macadamia oil allows for unbelievable absorption and rapid penetration into both the hair and skin.  It also is very rich in essential fatty acids.  The fatty acids help to soften and condition.

FIRST Wild Card Tour: The Dragon and the Turtle Go On Safari

Padraig the dragon and his best friend, Roger the turtle, are determined to spend the whole night outside. As brave explorers at the base of Mount Sillymanborrow, the boys use their imaginations to have fun while munching on crunchy baked bugs and toasting s'mores (YUM!) over their campfire. But when the sky gets dark and the sounds of strange animals fill the forest outside their tent, their safari gets scary.

Ratuki Card Game

You will usually see my family playing around with electronics, a computer or a video game console.  But we enjoy playing ‘traditional’ games too.  Card games are something we enjoy playing when we have friends over in groups and have some fierce competition to win.

Ratuki is a new card game hitting the shelves this year from Hasbro Games.  It’s an amusing way to spend some quality time with your family and friends.  Best played with at least three people, it can accommodate five players, and has a quick game play.

How Small Do You Have to Be to Wear an X-Small?

By Jon BellMy sister sent me a $20 gift card to Target for Christmas.  What a sweetie.  She knows that Target is one of my favorite stores to shop at!  So this past Wednesday I spent a couple of hours in the afternoon, doing some shopping for ME, something I don't tend to do a whole lot of.

I roamed the racks, shocked that most of the winter gear was already on high clearance, I'm not talking 30%, I'm talking racks and racks of 50% and 75% off!  Come on folks it's just January, and here in the Northern Plains, we're still looking at a good 9 weeks or more of winter.  When I start seeing shorts and tank tops out in January, I begin to wonder whether every marketer alive lives and works in the Southern States.

Chili's Grill & Bar Restaurant $20 Gift Card Giveaway

Back in October I shared with you about Chili's $20 Dinner for Two & Shout Out To Eat Contest.  Well there ended up being a computer crash somewhere along the way, and since the promotional company couldn't account to whom the gift cards were sent to and who they weren't, they sent some more my way!

The great thing is you can still eat big and spend small since Chili's $20 For Two dinners are still on the menu.

Catch Change of Plans on Jan 8 on Fox

One of the things my family enjoys doing the most is snuggling up in our living room with a big bowl of popcorn and watching movies.  That's one of the reasons I created Play That Now, so I could have a blog where I talk about all things entertainment!

New Kellogg's FiberPlus Flavor! Giveaway

Losing weight and/or eating healthier has got to be #1 on the New Year's Resolution chart.  Now I have no statistical information for this, but almost everyone I talk to, or read, has this on their list. 

I find it ironic that, at least in our part of the woods, it's also the time the Girl Scouts sell cookies.
