Freeman Bare Foot Lotion Review #BAREFOOTbliss

Product received at no charge through to facilitate my review

It's summer and time to go barefoot.
I love the feel of the grass between my toes and my feet love the fresh air. However, walking around in flip flops in the dry air where I live, leaves my feet in desperate need of attention. 

For the past few weeks I have had the chance to use the The Bare Foot Dragon Fruit Foot Lotion from Freeman Beauty. While I don't particularly love the scent like I thought I would, I do like how soft the lotion makes my feet feel. The first time I used the it, I put too much in my hand and it took a long time to rub into my feet and lower legs. I found that a little bit goes a long way. Another thing I like about the lotion is that it is inexpensive and can be found at my local Walmart.
Everyday use of the foot lotion has kept my feet from cracking and given me the confidence to wear sandals. I would have loved to try the Peppermint and Plum Bare Foot scent but my local store did not carry that scent. However, I will be looking for it in the future since I didn't fall in love with the Passion Fruit. A good overall product made in the U.S.A.

Rating: ★★★★☆

I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. I am entering a brand challenge #contest to win a prize.

Dixie Ultra Moments Mother's Day Party: Sponsored

On Mother's Day, I was lucky enough to get to host a Dixie® Ultra Moments House Party. I received a free party kit to share with my guests. The plates and cups were very pretty for our Mother's Day casual get together. However, the thing I liked most was that the table ware and cups were sturdy. Nobody likes flimsy plates and Dixie plates are not flimsy. In fact, my guests
could hold them with one hand without the disaster of having them bend and spill everything all over.
 My mom couldn't resist posing with her Dixie Ultra Moment plate.

 The plastic cups were just the right size for our drinks and sturdy as well. The napkins were thick and absorbent. I haven't used Dixie tableware for a long time so I didn't realize what I was missing. My sister ended up being impressed enough that she asked for two coupons and plan to use the Dixie plates at my niece's graduation party.

I was actually surprised to see that the Dixie products were made in the U.S.A. It is so fun to see that made in U.S.A. wording on the back.

We had a great Mother's Day party and I would definitely purchase the Dixie products again. I loved the hassle free clean up on Mother's Day. It's already enough work to host a party so it was a relief not to have a lot of clean up. I don't use paper products a lot but I love the times I do. I didn't have any complaints or improvements about the Dixie Ultra Moments products.
Thanks Dixie, for making my Mother's Day a little less stressful.

Disney's "Million Dollar Arm" Opens in Theaters May 16

I always like this time of year for movies. It's always the time that family friendly movies get released for summer. Disney's Million Dollar Arm is one movie I feel good about taking my family to see.

Story Synopsis:

Based on a true story, sports agent JB Bernstein (Jon Hamm) finds that business has changed and things aren’t going well for his career. In a last ditch effort to save his livelihood he concocts a scheme to find baseball’s next great pitching ace. Hoping to find a young cricket pitcher he can turn into a major league baseball star, JB travels to India to produce a reality show competition called “The Million Dollar Arm.” With the help of cantankerous but eagle-eyed retired baseball scout Ray Poitevint (Alan Arkin), he discovers Dinesh (played by Madhur Mittal from “Slumdog Millionaire”) and Rinku (played by Suraj Sharma from “Life of Pi”), two 18-year-old boys who have no idea about playing baseball, yet have a knack for throwing a fastball. Hoping to sign them to major league contracts and make a quick buck, JB brings the boys home to America to train. While the Americans are definitely out of their element in India, the boys, who have never left their rural villages, are equally challenged when they come to the States. As the boys learn the finer points of baseball, JB, with the help of his charming friend Brenda (Lake Bell), learns valuable life lessons about teamwork, commitment and what it means to be a family.

Check out one of the previews.

Yay! Papa Murphy's Pizza Night - The Wait is Over (Sponsored)

**Disclosure: As a #PapaMurphysMom I have received free samples to try with my family and to share my honest opinion.

My son and husband love pizza. They would eat it every weekend if it weren't for me. I love pizza too but it doesn't love me. Being lactose intolerant makes me choose wisely what I eat so pizza is a rare treat that I eat only when I have the necessary digestive dietary supplements on hand. When I do eat pizza, I want it to be fresh and taste good.

Since my family loves Papa Murphy's Pizza, I am excited to be a #PapaMurphysMom.  You would think my teenage son won the lottery when saw my kit from Papa Murphy's. I promised we would finally get pizza on a Friday night and not just any pizza, but the good kind. I'm pretty sure that elevated my status to "cool Mom" fast. Though if I don't keep it up, I may get demoted.
I have to admit, I was more excited to try Papa Murphy's dessert pizzas as I had never tried them before. My local paper had a coupon for two dessert pizzas and $2.00 off any size pizza so I loaded up. I was sure the Smore's Dessert Pizza would blow me away and make me want to eat dessert pizza all of the time.

We resisted the urge to eat dessert first. A huge feat for our family as our motto is usually dessert first in case we don't have room for it later. Instead we cooked our sausage and cheese pizza and enjoyed. What I really like about Papa Murphy's Pizza is the fact that it is made fresh in the store and cooked at home. This way I could pick it up while I waited for my boys to get home from track practice and put it in the oven when they got home, By the time they got settled and washed up for dinner, a hot pizza sat on the table, waiting. Papa Murphy's uses large sausage pieces which make us feel like we get high quality for a good price. Since we bake the pizza, it is not as expensive as other places that bake it for you. Nobody had any complaints about our Papa Murphy's sausage pizza. In fact, my husband remarked that he really liked the crust for the softness and just the right thickness.

As for the Smore's Pizza, it was good but it didn't knock my socks off like the other dessert pizza we tried. I also picked up a Cinnamon Wheel Dessert Pizza and cooked it the next morning for breakfast.

All I can say is, WOW! It's a good thing I have never tried it before or I would be addicted by now. It will be all I can do to refrain from picking one up every time I go to Papa Murphy's. Maybe with an extra hour on my bicycle, I can get away with it once in a while. The Cinnamon Wheel is by far the best dessert pizza I have ever eaten anywhere. I know we'll be back on May 8, 2014 for Mom's Night Out. Papa Murphy's has allowed me to share a Mom's night out coupon. If you're leaving food for the family and ducking out for the night, you might want to hide the dessert pizza for later. Thanks Papa Murphy's for a great pizza night.

Celebrate Mom's Night Out on May 8 with Papa Murphy's.

You can print this page and cut out the coupon, copy and paste it or pull it up on your electronic device and show it at your local Papa Murphy's but remember it is good May 8, 2014 only at participating locations.
