Help Protect Your Family's Future with Identity Guard®


“This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links”. 

Did you know there's an identity theft victim every 2 seconds? And did you know that almost 17 million Americans were victims of identity theft in 2017? When I read those facts on Identity Guard's website, I was relieved to know that I can protect my family with Identity Guard featuring IBM Watson Artificial Intelligence. They even have a 30 day free trial*!


Innovation. Trust. Excellence. Those are the driving forces at Identity Guard. Their solutions educate and empower people like us to help protect themselves from the growing threats of identity fraud. I remember the first time someone told me his identity had been stolen. I was at work, an office job back in 1999 and this client was freaking out that I had to print a document with his social security number on it and mail it to another office. Back then, the idea of a "stolen identity" sounded crazy to me and, I'm ashamed to say, my colleagues and I laughed at him later, mocking something that sounded to us like it came out of a movie. Now, nineteen years later, it doesn't sound crazy at all. I'm sure he would've wished he'd had Identity Guard!

Let Identity Guard help protect your future with the most powerful, comprehensive identity protection out there. You can sign up for the free trial here.

I was so thrilled to hear that the Dollar Tree is now selling Hallmark cards! I mean, I always cringe when I have to pay $4 for a quality card and now I won't have to do that! The quality of the cards is just like what you always expect from Hallmark. The artwork is gorgeous, the sayings inside are charming and delightful, and the variety is wonderful.  DollarTree, guys!
There are over 6,500 Dollar Tree stores nationwide and beginning today, August 30th, every store will carry Expressions from Hallmark, $1 each and Heartline a Hallmark company, 2 for $1! With hundreds of new greeting cards to choose from, you can celebrate every moment with your friends and family without breaking the bank!
We received cards from Hallmark's Joyfully Yours line of greeting cards. Joyfully Yours lets family and friends express their faith in just the right way during holidays, special occasions, and moments big and small. As you can see, the cards are just gorgeous with glitter, lovely art, and inspirational verses from the bible.
Inside, the card is beautiful, too. These came just in time for the birthday party we're going to on Saturday! I love knowing that now when I need a card, I can stop by the Dollar Tree to get something nice.
What special day or event do you have coming up?

Inspiring 13 Year Old Author's New Fantasy Book, Unicorn Ranch!


Earlier this year, our 13-year-old daughter published her first chapter book, Unicorn Ranch! It is getting amazing reviews and we are so proud of her. Back Cover Synopsis: When Amy has to move to a new city, she never imagines the adventures in store for her. New friends, a faraway journey, and a lost princess quickly weave themselves into the story of her new life. And it all begins at ... Unicorn Ranch! Perfect for girls ages 7 and up. If you want to support our budding author and also show your kiddos they can do anything they set their minds to, you can buy it on Amazon here. Shipping is free with Prime!

My daughter was instantly pulled into this book and couldn’t put it down!! 

We LOVE this book! Hope there will be more books by this young talented author!

My daughter loved the book, she read it in two days and couldn't put it down. Hope to see more stories soon.

My oldest got it in the mail yesterday and devoured it on the way to Mass and then re-read it on the way home. She really enjoyed it! She laughed aloud in several parts and there were a lot of, "Wait; listen to this..." portions she shared with us... She was relieved to hear there is another book in the series coming out soon.

The book arrived yesterday. I read my daughter one chapter before bed - she begged for more so I read another two. She was enjoying it so much I suggested she take it up to bed with her. She has never done that before or been interested in reading on her own before, other than poetry. My husband found her under the covers with the flashlight reading late last night, and she came downstairs this morning proudly telling us she had read a few more chapters. I can’t tell you how huge this is!! She has so many special needs that makes reading challenging for her, yet I have always hoped that she would one day discover wanting to read and the pleasure there is in not wanting to put a book down because you are enjoying it so much. This book has done that for her. It is the perfect book for a reluctant young reader as the story is engaging yet easily read, with short chapters and words, if you don’t know them, that challenge yet don’t frustrate, because they are spaced out enough between the more easy to read words that the story can flow even if you have to skip a word here and there. I hope this young author is busy writing her next novel!




Animoto's New Social-friendly Storyboards are Marketing Genius! #Discount


“This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links”.

I am so excited to introduce Animoto's New Social-friendly Storyboards! You can tell a story or explain a concept with 3 new Animoto Marketing storyboards. Designed to match the style of big brands and publishers on Facebook, these striking templates can be quickly customized for any brand or topic.

People don't share ads--they share stories. And that's what Animoto can help you do with your business. Easily create storytelling videos for Facebook, Instagram, and more. Their 3 new storyboard templates feature sharp cuts and stylish text effects designed for story-heavy, viral-style content. Try them out to explain how to use a product, highlight a place or product’s best features, or describe a new trend in a way that’ll make your audience eager to share!
In July, Animoto did something called Brand Camp to teach small businesses how to use videos to capture attention. For example, on social media, you don’t have the luxury of knowing that your audience will be sticking around until your last word, but fortunately, during Brand Camp, the experts Alexa and Irina provided a number of valuable best practices for grabbing the audience’s attention and holding it:
Use a hook: Ask yourself what the most important or compelling aspect of the story that you’re telling is and lead with that.
Open with a strong visual: Those first few seconds are essential to keeping your viewer’s attention. If you have a particularly impactful image or video clip, put it at the very beginning of your video to make sure it gets seen.
Ask a captivating question: You may be noticing a theme here. The first battle is getting viewers to stick around. Asking a question and then unpacking it over the course of the video is a tried-and-true way to do so.
Call out a statistic: Leading with a fun or surprising statistic is another useful entry-point for a video.
Keep feeding the viewer information: Once you hook your viewer, you have to keep them there, so make sure you continue to leave breadcrumbs of information throughout the duration of your video.·         
Use a storyboard: Their storyboards are templates designed specifically to help you stand out on social, and their three newest additions , masterminded by Irina, were created specifically for storytelling videos.

Ask Your Valentine to "Surprise" You with the Most Pampering Bath and Shower Soaps!


A couple of weeks ago, I received the most enchanting package in recent memory. My box from Frost Yourself Essentials smelled so wonderful when I opened it! And when I opened each of the beautifully wrapped gifts, I was blow away by their detail and beauty...

The owner of Frosty Yourself is Lindsy, a mother of two with a flare for the creative. I love that purchasing from her company means helping support a mom, and all of her products are American made, which is something I'm always looking for. You've seen that the soaps are beautiful but how well do they work, you ask??

I was able to try 6 different soaps from Frost Yourself and I have to say I was blown away with how much better they were than I had imagined! I always expect bar soaps (especially handmade ones) not to lather and to dry out my skin so I was very pleasantly surprised at the softness and silkiness of the Frosty Yourself soaps when using them. They lather incredibly and all of them have a nice, light scent so that you want to keep using them, and they make taking a shower a very pleasurable experience, something we moms really need! My main alone-time is my shower time so I really try to find products to enhance it. 

My favorite soap is this one, the wedding soap. It looks even more beautiful in real life and it smells soooo heavenly. I will tell you that this is my favorite soap I have ever used in all of my life. It's now going to be one of those necessities I always have to have, and would be the best addition to any gift for a bride on her wedding day. ♥ I'm going to have to order some to keep them on hand for those special occasions.
And now for the cupcake soaps! When my hubby saw one of these on the bathroom counter, he said "Why didn't you tell me you made cupcakes, and why is there one in the bathroom?" I laughed at him and I said, "Don't eat it! It's soap!" He had to look closer to believe me. The beauty of these soaps makes them so wonderful for gift giving.

The Whipped soaps have the cutest names--Unicorn Poop and Whipped Monkey Farts (cutest names ever!) How fun would it be to give these as gifts? The Whipped Monkey Farts also smell so good! I know just the person who needs these! (Are you giggling yet?!)
You can purchase Frost Yourself soaps already made, or you can also place a custom order, plus there's even a Soap of the Month Club so that you can be surprised each month with something new and exciting!
Use the code VALENTINESDAY for 15% off from Feb 1-28! Follow Frost Yourself on Facebook to keep updated on future sales and new soaps!
