Necknapperz The Perfect Travel Friend For Kids!









Our family loves to travel. Most of the time we are in the van for hours having fun on our roadtrips. Along the way we are always looking for ways to make the trip more fun and more comfortable for our kids. My youngest daughter falls asleep all the time in the car and I am constantly trying to come up with ways to keep her head in one spot. Most times I end up in the middle van seat with my arm holding up her head. It’s not a great position to be in. When we came across Necknapperz I could have not been any more thrilled about testing it out. Our Necknapperz arrived just in time for our last trip.














Necknapperz is a great travel item for kids! It’s a friend while they are awake and a supportive neck pillow when they are asleep.  Kids can snuggle and play with the adorable animals and then easily transform it from a loveable plush animal into an ergonomic neck pillow at naptime.  Bonus: Most kids will be able to transform the Necknapperz from plush to pillow by themselves! We checked out the dolphin Necknapperz which was adorable. They are also available as a unicorn, wolf, monkey, lion, elephant, piggy and more. Check out all the choices here:


necknapperzwindowWhen I asked my daughter what she thought of Necknapperz – Her response was, “Absolutely adorable! Can I get them all?”. I kindly explained to her that she only had one neck, but who knows, we may have a few friends in the future. By the way, Mommy tested it out, too! Very comfy. Necknapperz combine ultra-soft fabrics with space-age micro-beads and high quality craftsmanship for the best in comfort and support for your kids. In addition, each Necknapperz neck pillow unzips and completely transforms into a huggable plush toy unlike some of the predecessors that simply present a pillow that folds in half to produce an imaginary friend like Pillow Pets or provide the neck pillow with the head of an animal character on the end. If you are looking for a neck pillow that transforms to and from a cute animal, definitely give Necknapperz a go. You will not be disappointed! Check them out on Facebook here:

#Giveaway @touchbeverages Touch Brewer Brewing System For Single Cup Coffee Oh Yeah!

 Touch Brewer Brewing System For Single Cup Coffee Oh Yeah!



    Coffee lovers unite. You are going to want to hear all about the new Touch Brewer T526S Brewing System For Single Cup Coffee. Hubby and I have always been coffee fans forever. Being two teachers we started every morning with a big ole’ pot of coffee- leaving for school with half a pot to go to waste every single day. Not this year. Well, it’s just hubby who is still teaching but we do enjoy that special cup of coffee every morning together. We have both been taken for the easiness and quality of the Touch Brewer. 


Five reasons hubby and I both adore the Touch Brewer:

1. The Touch Brewer is quick and easy. It’s ready to start brewing in under twenty seconds after being off all night. That is so important. Who wants to wait forever for the coffee maker to warm up before use. I like to wake up in the morning and get the coffee within minutes of my feet hitting the floor.

Touchcoffeewatertank2. I absolutely love the water tank holder. It comes OFF of the rest of the unit. It’s easy to fill and it’s super easy to dump and clean. You do not have “run through” the water you do not use. You can just dump and clean and add fresh water whenever you choose to. This is such an incredible feature. I’m not sure I can ever switch to another brand after seeing this dynamic feature. Its removable 90-ounce water tank has a greater capacity and is shorter in height than its counterparts, meaning you will be refilling less often, and it will be less awkward when you do.

touchcoffeeLA3. The coffee is hot and delicious! The flavor is rich when choosing any of the size choices. The hot water has more contact with the coffee grounds, which ensures that all of the coffee flavor is extracted. Other machines take much longer to warm up and then shoot water through the coffee grounds too quickly, so you end up throwing away untapped flavor with the used capsule. Even with a slower, more deliberate brew, when factoring in the warm-up time, the Touch still turns out a cup of joe in a fraction of the time. The taste of the coffee can definitely rival the pay coffee chains. I would know- I brew at home and I buy outside. I’m a three-four cup a day coffeegal.

touchcoffeetouch4.  Touch’s single serve cups are larger than traditional K-Cups, allowing more coffee grounds. More coffee means bigger, bolder flavor. I love how the Touch Brewer is compatible with Portion Packs, including K-Cup packs, XBold Cup and XLarge Cup. Did I mention there are EIGHT  Cup Size choices? You can choose 6, 8, 10, 12, 14 ,16 18 and 26 ounce cups to brew. There is also a carafe 26oz pot & Refill Jumbo Cup. I call that a win! The Touch Brewer also comes with an extra cup that you can fill with your own ground coffee. That is a perk for anyone like me that runs out of K-cups all the time. 

5. The Touch Brewer is simple and looks great. It will look nice in your kitchen or office. It’s sleek and fits great on the counter. I was really not expecting to love the Touch Brewer as much I do. I thought I would just try it and then box it, but it is taking up permanent residence on our counter and getting put to the test a few times daily.

Brickfest Live! A Must For All Lego Fans!

Brickfest Live! – A Must For All Lego Fans!
Recently our family was invited to check out Brickfest Live! Anyone that knows us knows just how much we love Legos! We have been a Lego family since forever! There are shelves in our house dedicated to Lego Star Wars, Lego Marvel Superheroes, Lego Harry Potter and assorted Lego creations from throughout the years! Legos are a great way for our family to spend time together building and having fun. So, when we were invited to Brickfest, we could not wait. It was a first for us and we really had no idea of what to expect. Let me tell you up front  Brickfest totally surpassed our expectations.
brickfestgamesBrickfest Live is a family-friendly convention in which people gather together to show off their incredible Lego sculptures and express their love for all things Lego! It’s for all Lego fans, ages from toddler to oldie. While we were there, my family got the chance to try out some of the newest Lego games like LEGO Jurassic World, along with a number of other titles. There was also a trivia contest which my children enjoyed partaking in very much! The highlight of the entire experience had to be the Lego-themed mini-golf course, which was a perfect attraction for all. Nine holes of Lego fun. Our entire family played and really loved it. My daughter also had the chance to build her very own race car out of Legos and then race against other convention-goers. Her car came in first. There was no actual prize and you didn’t get to keep the car, but it was so much fun. 
There were many different Lego sculptures to see, including some that glowed in the dark and some that had working trains! One of the highlights of Brickfest was all of the different building areas. They were set up throughout the mini convention and there were more than plenty of bricks available to built to your heart,s content. They even had a gigantic round sitting area where kids could sit amongst big lego pieces and build right where they sat! One of my favorite stations was the Book Station- filled with beanbag chairs and stocked with Lego books courtesy of DK Publishers. It was a great place to take a rest and read your favorite Lego title.
So, if you are looking for a great event to attend alone or with the family, Brickfest is just for you. You can check out more about Brickfest here including pricing and dates they will be in an area by you. PS: Bring your pockets filled with cash, you will definitely want to leave with a Lego in hand. Many of the vendors have pieces to buy alone including hard to find figures and sets. Em had an awesome time building her own Lego girl figures and adding accessories, while my sons found some one of a kind Legos. Big or Small there was something for all. See you at the next Brickfest!
