Climb Aboard The Thomas and Friends Big Loader from TOMY

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

Do you have a train lover in your house like I do??? Then you are going to want to climb aboard The Thomas and Friends Big Loader from TOMY! I know my family has and the smiles and fun we have had with the set has lasted hours and hours!


My son and I spent a whole morning putting this set together and then watching Thomas, Percy and Terence pick up and deliver their loads on time throughout Sodor.


It was a little difficult to figure out how to set it up right away but once I followed the directions, we got on a roll and had it together in no time! Then the fun began!! :)


The Thomas and Friends Big Loader set features multiple loading areas and a fully automated engine that transforms between Thomas to Percy and Terence, and back again. Each set Includes 1 mechanical vehicle chassis, 3 vehicle bodies, over 8 feet of track and destinations, and loads of cargo to haul around! There are even fun stickers to put on the track that makes it look even more real!


We have been playing with this track for days as a family and everyone from ages 34 to 4 have enjoyed watching the trains work together and deliver the load!

Buy It:

You can purchase the Big Loader for $39.99 on Amazon.com. It is made for ages 3+, so even the youngest Thomas the Tank enthusiast can play!

Make Fall Celebrations Stress-Free with @EpsonAmerica Expression Premium EcoTank Printers!

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

Planning fall and back to school celebrations doesn’t have to be a pain. From invitations, party favors, photo booth props, and fun decorations for birthday parties, baby showers, or weddings, Epson’s Expression Premium ET-7750 Wide-format EcoTank printer is a cartridge-free, wireless printer perfect for spicing up any occasion.
With easy-to-fill, supersized ink tanks, this printer offers up to two years of ink in the box, equivalent to about 30 ink cartridge sets. Other features include a five-color ink system featuring Photo Black ink for high-quality photos and color prints, wide-format printing of up to 11" x 17", tablet and smartphone connectivity, and savings of up to 80 percent on low-cost ink replacements. It is really great for all occasions including any fall birthday parties, weddings or baby showers you have this fall!


Weddings — Any bride or groom-to-be knows that planning a wedding can be a massive undertaking, especially if you’re attempting to save some money and do multiple tasks yourself. The Expression Premium ET-7750 EcoTank can help every step of the way by relieving the stress associated with DIY projects. With enough ink in the box to print up to 9,000 color pages3, the ET-7750 enables couples to print and organize vendor documents, guest lists, seating charts, and schedules. Featuring five-color inkjet technology— including Photo Black ink— the ET-7750 can print photos and documents up to 11” x 17”, as well as specialty media, ideal for professional looking save-the-dates, invitations, menus, and programs.


Baby Showers — If you or a loved one has a baby on the way, a summer baby shower is a perfect way to share your excitement with friends and family. Create customized invitations, signage and decorations, or print photos onto sticker paper for a one-of-a-kind party favor. Wireless printing makes it easy to print photos straight from a phone or tablet4— try printing maternity photos to use as unique thank you cards.


Birthdays — From a little one's first party to the big 5-0, birthday celebrations for all ages can be personalized with the ET-7750. Cut the guest of honor’s age or initials out of poster board, then print out and paste photos to create a super-sized photo collage. With up to two years of ink included in the box, print out party trivia game sheets, crafts, and coloring sheets to keep kids entertained.


Over the years, I have gone through and tried MANY different printers! One of the BIGGEST problems with most printers is the ink cartridges - how fast the ink seems to disappear and how expensive they are!!!


That is why I am LOVIN' the Expression Premium ET-7750 EcoTank! With up to 2 years included in ink, I am set! I don't have to worry about being out of ink EVERY TIME I print and it has all the functions I need to be a blogger, a preschool teacher and a mom - printer, scanner, copier and it prints pictures! It was easy to set up and even easier to use! This is by far one of the best printers I have ever used!

Buy It:

You can purchase the Expression Premium ET-7750 EcoTank ($649.99 MSRP) is available through major computer, office and electronic retailers, and on the Epson store (www.epsonstore.com).

Need a Laugh? Watch Life of the Party on Blu-ray Combo pack & DVD TODAY!

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.


Who DOESN'T LOVE Melissa McCarthy??! She may be my favorite comedian and there has never been a movie of hers that I didn't like!!! She is SOOOO Funny!

So when I saw she had another movie coming out, Life of the Party, I HAD to see it..especially when I saw the plot line. Being a mom myself that went back to college after having kids, I knew I would love this new movie of hers too!

And I was right! It had all the right parts - super funny, some serious, some sentimental and just overall the same old hilarious Melissa McCarthy doing what she does best - making people laugh while sending a good message - never give up on your dreams! If you need a mood lifter this week, for sure check out Life of the Party for some good laughs...and a trip down memory lane of your good ole' college days! 😉



Check out more about the movie below:

When her husband suddenly dumps her, longtime dedicated housewife Deanna (McCarthy) turns regret into reset by going back to college…landing in the same class and school as her daughter, who’s not entirely sold on the idea. Plunging headlong into the campus experience, the increasingly outspoken Deanna—now Dee Rock—embraces freedom, fun and frat boys on her own terms, finding her true self in a senior year no one ever expected.

Buy It:

You can purchase Life of the Party on Blu-ray combo pack and DVD now on Amazon.com

Healthy Summer Treats: Slim Twin Ice Cream!

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

Nothing tastes better on a hot summer day than some delicious, cold ice cream! However, sometimes ice cream can really hurt a diet or healthy lifestyle because of high calories or artificial ingredients!

So this summer, if you are trying to eat healthy and low calories but still crave ice cream, turn to Slim Twin ice cream!


Made by Three Twins Ice Cream, Slim Twin is the first and only certified USDA organic low-calorie ice cream. Unlike most low-cal ice cream brands, Slim Twin is crafted with a base of real milk, cream, sugar and eggs and contains zero added salt, glycerin, stevia, or artificial coloring/preservatives.

Available in Vanilla, Lemon Cookie, Coffee and more, Slim Twin is also low-fat, packed with 24g protein (more than Halo Top and Arctic Zero!) and has only 240-320 calories per pint—offering a clean & guilt-free summer treat.


I absolutely love the flavors offered by Slim Twin and my favorite has got to be the Lemon Cookie and Cookies and Cream! And I feel no guilt when eating it! That is my favorite part. Not only is it organic but it is high in protein and made without ANY artificial ingredients!

Dig in this summer to your favorite flavors of ice cream WITHOUT GUILT with Slim Twin ice cream!
