Songmics sent me their Mesh Shelves Kitchen Cart for review but they also carry a lot of very nice furniture for every room in your home as well as products for storage, home office, outdoor and garden, and even pets.

To use the Mesh Shelves Kitchen Cart, I just simply place my dishes on the rustic brown shelf with a raised edge to avoid spilling. I roll the cart from the kitchen to the dining room with the convenient handle. I loved that it was easy to assemble. The numbered parts and easy-to-understand instructions allowed me to put it together in just a few minutes,

There are 4 casters with 2 brakes to make for easy mobility. The adjustable feet keep the kitchen shelf stationary and stable near the stove. This is the perfect size and exactly what I was looking for! I love it!!

Enter to #win the Candy-Less #Blippi Basket #Giveaway for #Easter2020! @BlippiOfficial US Only. Ends 4/5

I’m very excited to share with you a fun giveaway opportunity that will not only keep kids learning and engaged, but is also a perfect solution for filling Easter baskets with something other than candy — new books from the beloved Youtube sensation, Blippi! 

In early 2014, Stevin John decided that the world needed Blippi after struggling to find educational videos for his three-year-old-nephew. So he took it upon himself to create the lovable and energetic character of "Blippi" to fill this void. Clad in orange and blue that jumps off the screen, Blippi's engaging personality and friendly demeanor attracted the attention of kids and parents alike. With over 20 MILLION YouTube subscribers and over 11 BILLION views to date, Blippi is helping to make education fun! Like the lyrics to his theme song say: “So much to learn about, it’ll make you want to shout: Blippi!”  

This Spring, StudioFun is debuting four new Blippi books for pre-schoolers:

 Blippi: I Like That: Coloring with Crayons

Blippi: I Like That: Coloring with Crayons - In this coloring and activity book, Blippi tells kids some of the things he likes (like his hat!) and encourages them to color, draw, and doodle things they like, too. Plus, there are lots of connect-the-dots, mazes, matching, and more, all designed to get preschoolers thinking about things they like and to also express their creativity while practicing their developing fine motor skills. 

Blippi: Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes

Blippi: Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes - Everyone knows and loves the beloved preschool classic song “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes,” including Blippi! As he energetically acts out the song on the pages of this board book, Blippi prompts readers to press the sound button to play the tune and encourages everyone to get up and move!

Blippi: So Much to See

Blippi: So Much to See - This 128-page coloring and painting book presents an amazing array of animals, a variety of vrooming vehicles, and some basic early learning concepts, too! There are nearly 100 images for kids to color or paint using the crayons and paints provided…including lots of poses of Blippi.

Blippi: Lets Look and Find! -  Blippi prompts preschoolers to find twelve different objects in each illustrated scene in this durable board book. Can they find the blue-and-orange bird in the park? The teddy bear at a birthday party? The seashell at the beach? With gatefolds that open to reveal a new scene on each spread, Blippi: Lets Look and Find will keep preschoolers busy for hours as they happily hone their observation skills.


On behalf of StudioFun it is my pleasure to offer you the chance to win a Candy-Less Blippi Easter Basket, which includes all four books described above, a woven Easter basket, grass, plastic eggs and a very fun pair of Blippi’s signature orange glasses!  US only please.

How To Enjoy an Off-Grid Retreat With the Entire Family

Image result for Off-Grid camping With the Entire Family

Technology has increasingly become a mainstay in the lives of most Americans. In fact, it’s highly likely it would be impossible for you to name a single adult who doesn’t own a cell phone. Cell phones provide us with access to so many things, including everything that can be found on the internet and live-streaming of our favorite shows. With all this technology around us, it’s not unheard of to sometimes need a digital break. A great way to do that is to go off-grid. An off-grid vacation can include the entire family and can be done in many areas of the North and South American continents. However, there are a few things you might want to take along with you.

1. A Shower

Going off-grid doesn’t mean you have to be dirty. Whether you’re traveling into the local mountains for the weekend, or down to the jungles of Guatemala, you can take the bathtub with you. Well, not literally. Mobile showers are a great alternative to jumping in the river with the algae and fish. These units can be towed behind you and can come as bare or as extensive as you need. They come ADA compliant and are perfect for families with small children.

2. Travel Solar Panels

While the goal is to escape technology, you could find yourself in an emergency situation. In that case, you’ll want to be sure you have a way to charge your only means of communication to the outside world—yes, your cell phone. While the idea is to escape the cell phone, it’s a good idea to go ahead and keep it charged. Travel solar panels are an affordable tool for your peace of mind. Go ahead and pack it. If you need it, you’ll be glad you have it. If you don’t, you never even have to pull it out.

3. Shelter

You can’t go off-grid and not have plans for a place to rest your head at night. With the right planning and good knowledge of the weather forecast, a tent should be perfect. After all, you’re not going off-grid to spend your time indoors! Get out and explore. When you come back in the evening, your tent and hot shower will be awaiting you.

An off-grid vacation should be a memorable experience for the whole family, but that doesn’t mean it has to be uncomfortable. With careful planning and basic necessities, your adventure will be a success.

What You Need To Consider Before Getting A Rescue Dog

Getting A Rescue Dog
Image Credit License CC0 

If you are considering getting a dog in the near future, one of the best ways that you can do this is to adopt one from a rescue center. There are lots of dogs out there that need a good home, and you could be the right person to do that. 

However, before you rush off to your local rehoming center and pick the dog that you want, it is vital that you do some research first and make sure you know exactly what you are getting yourself in for. Dogs take a lot of time and attention. You need to be able to afford to give them the best quality of life possible. This means feeding them well and paying for their vet’s bills. You should also think about getting pet insurance just in case. 

Here are some of the major things that you should think about before getting a rescue dog. 

Pick The Dog That Suits Your Lifestyle

Every dog is different. But there are often universal characteristics that are true of most dogs within a certain breed. When it comes to deciding which dog to get, it is important that you consider these characteristics and you find a dog with a temperament that suits your lifestyle. 

For example, if you are looking for suitable dogs for elderly, pick a breed that is not known for its energy. If you got a dog that needed to go for big long walks or runs, then you might not be able to provide it with the life that it needs. 

If you have young children in the home, make sure you get a dog that is fairly docile. 

Diet And Healthcare Costs

Remember that you need to feed your dog daily. Some breeds will eat more than others and they will have different requirements when they are a puppy or when they are old. 

Diet plays a major part in the health of a dog, and it is always important to invest in healthy dog food. If you buy the cheapest food you can find, it is unlikely to be good for your dogs

Don’t forget to factor healthcare costs when it comes to deciding to rescue a dog. You will need to give your dog worm and flea treatment every month, and you should also take them to the vets for their jabs and a checkup once a year. 


Dogs need exercise. For some, this might be a short walk at a slow to moderate pace, while for others, it may mean going several miles or running fast over a long distance. 

Make sure you know what you are getting in for with the type of dog you are getting. You need to commit yourself to walk your dog every day. Without their walks, dogs can get restless, become very unhappy, and develop severe health problems. Be honest with yourself about how much you are able to walk each day and think about the dogs needs over your own.

College Prep Science - Online Homeschool Anatomy Curriculum

College Prep Science - Online Homeschool Anatomy Curriculum

This post is sponsored by College Prep Science.

Do you homeschool your child? Homeschooling can be quite challenging but learning a tough subject is made easier with a great teacher that helps make the subject interesting.

Greg Landry taught gross anatomy (cadavers) to pre-med university students for years and he now uses that passion for human anatomy and physiology to teach homeschooled students. And, does he ever have some great stories from the cadaver lab!

Greg Landry’s online Homeschool Anatomy Curriculum Class offers a full year (two-semester) option for 9th – 12th grade homeschooled students, a half school year (one semester) options for 6th – 9th grade homeschooled students and a self-paced option for 3rd-6th grade homeschooled students.

Professor Landry is a former college professor – he designed and ran a gross anatomy lab for junior-level pre-med college students. Over the past 20+ years, he has taught science to thousands of homeschooled students. His students love his online classes that are filled with teaching and stories from the trenches (cadaver tanks) that make anatomy and physiology come to life! The classes cover the anatomy and physiology of all human systems plus the insight that can only come from working with cadavers. His online classes also include time in his virtual anatomy and physiology lab to perform experiments and write lab reports.

Anatomy and physiology is interesting to most students because they’re learning about themselves but it tends to most interesting to students who are leaning towards fields such as: medicine (medical doctor), nursing, athletic training, chiropractic, physician’s assistant, pharmacy, nurse practitioner, exercise science, massage therapy, sports medicine, physical therapy, etc. Professor Landry believes that studying human anatomy and physiology is illuminating God’s Creation and that it reveals His glory.

- Human Anatomy & Physiology (9th-12th) - Two Semester Class
- Pre-Anatomy & Physiology (6th-9th) - One Semester Class
- Young Scientist Anatomy & Physiology (3rd-6th) – One Semester Self-paced

In the words of a homeschool parent…

"Greg, ...what you did for our daughter will have far-reaching effects. You showed her that learning can be enjoyable..."
Thankful in Indiana
Jim H.

New Children’s Book Inspiring Every Girl to Know That She is Enough: The Nuff by Veronica Waldrop

The Nuff by Veronica Waldrop
New Children’s Book Inspiring Every Girl to Know That She is Enough:

The Nuff by Veronica Waldrop

A mother of two only had weeks to live. Veronica Waldrop knew what she had to do – write an enduring message for her daughters, ages two and five, so that they might know truth, hope, and strength well beyond their mom’s fight with breast cancer.  In support of International Women’s Day 2020 (March 8, 2020), Tailwind Publishing presents The Nuff, Waldrop’s heartwarming story written to inspire her daughters after she was gone and empower girls everywhere to be the bold and confident individuals they were born to be.

This children’s book about courage and self-discovery follows the adventures of the Nuff, a colorfully-illustrated unicorn with a broken horn that young readers will love. The Nuff reads books and rides bikes, dresses up and dances with a flower crown, and plays basketball and scuba dives. No matter what she does, the story reminds her that “when the world says you can’t and you should just give up....know you are brave and beautiful. You will always be a NUFF!”

“Though we miss her every day, Veronica’s courage and strength is living in us. The Nuff is a part of our healing and the beginning of a mission to inspire our daughters, and girls everywhere, that you are enough,” said Will Waldrop, Veronica’s husband.

During the final weeks of her life, Veronica wore a unicorn costume around the house to raise her daughters’ spirits. The Nuff defines the inextinguishable energy of Veronica’s life and the legacy she wants to pass on to every single Nuff – “a strong and beautiful girl with a powerful heart and brain.”

Encouraging authenticity, resilience, and self-assurance, The Nuff shares a message with  girls that they are not defined by their achievements or challenges – they are already, and always, enough.

 “Veronica may have written this poem for our little girls but the reality is that this is a story that is resonating with women and girls of all ages.  Our hope is that through this message, adults and children alike will feel confident to navigate their lives and face any challenges that may arise. The Nuff is not just a kid’s book for girls,” said Will Waldrop.  “So many times I’ve had to go back to the book to remind myself as a dad, as a widower, that she’s talking to me.”

A portion of the proceeds from each book will go towards the donation of The Nuff copies to early education programs and non-profit organizations already focussed on the advancement of young girls.

About the Author: Veronica Waldrop (1979–2017) was the mother of two beautiful girls, Natalia and Nina, and the beloved wife of Will Waldrop. Veronica was a dreamer, a writer, and a storyteller who found joy in building relationships and sharing experiences with everyone she met. Veronica had a special gift for connecting with others through her authenticity and enthusiasm.

During her two-year battle with breast cancer, Veronica wrote a transformational story for her daughters before passing away on November 4, 2017. Through The Nuff, she hoped to empower girls everywhere to be the bold and confident women they were created to be. Veronica left the world a heartwarming and courageous story of unconditional love, hope, and perseverance.

About Tailwind Publishing: Two weeks after Veronica passed away, Veronica’s husband, Will, asked a dear friend, Alan Williams, to bring this story and its all-important messaging to life.  Although Alan serves as an executive in the food industry, he’s been able to assemble a talented team of illustrators, designers, educators, PR specialists, content writers, leaders and friends to form Tailwind Publishing, so that Veronica and Will’s mission of inspiring women and girls everywhere would be carried out.

The Nuff by Veronica Waldrop

“It is an honor to bring a group of people together to produce something derived from ultimate authenticity,” said Tailwind Publishing Founder Alan Williams. “This book is filled with priceless treasures for our girls. It embodies everything we want them to know about strength, resolve, and true beauty. As a father of four children, I connect with The Nuff at my core, and our team is committed to inspiring girls everywhere that they are enough.  With the mission at the forefront, we aim to collaborate and create enduring partnership, so that this timeless resource can be put in the hands of young girls who might not receive it otherwise.”
