We decided to have a picnic so I brought my Thermacell Patio Shield  Mosquito Protection Lantern with me.  In no time we had it set up and my family and I had a wonderful mosquito-free picnic.  This Thermacell little patio lantern would be awesome for decks, patios and backyards, family gatherings or barbeque.  You can also use it while gardening, or camping.  Plus it has an awesome little ambient light.

The Thermacell Patio Shield Lanten 
  • gives you mosquito protection that you don't have to spray on.
  • It Repels mosquitoes black flies and other flying insects.
  • Provides 15 x 15 ft area of repellency, the size of an average deck.
  • Heated Mat releases repellent into the air
  • Convenient and Silent.  Best of all - No Open Flame.
  • LEDs provide safe and flameless, ambient light
  • Each mat last a maximum of 4 hours




It is so nice to enjoy a picnic with my family without having to worry about those pesky mosquitoes and swatting them so you won't get bit.  I'm really glad that I got to try the Thermacell Patio Shield Mosquito Protection Lantern because now I can enjoy picnics so much more with my family.  Or out on our porch playing board games with the kids or being outside catching lightening bugs with my son.  I'm really going to use it in the garden while working with my flowers in my flower beds.  There are so many uses you can use the Patio Shield Lantern for.  Enjoy because now.......

You can now Focus On The Fun, Not The Bugs!

Minecraft Fun!




HOW IT WORKS

Bring your laptop with Minecraft 1.9.2 installed and play first-person on your computer and then you wirelessly connect to Super League’s server which puts you and everyone else in the movie theater’s gameplay up on the big screen. Parents and siblings can attend for free to watch and cheer their gamer on.

Your gamers will play, collaborate and socialize on teams with 4-7 members their own age as they build, battle and use their creativity and imagination.  Super League even provides all the tech help and support making this a great family-friendly event.

THE LEAGUE ENCOURAGES SOCIAL CONNECTIONS & TEAMWORK

It’s all about teamwork and collaboration. Each player gets a free gaming t-shirt encouraging team building and camaraderie. There’s even an opportunity for the winning team to evenly split a college scholarship.

How our Minecraft experience go?


My son (blue shirt) with his good friend - Team DinoSquad!

Our Super League Gaming Minecraft experience took place over four weeks - one hour on Saturday mornings for a total of 4 hours gaming.

We got their really early and picked out our team shirts and the boys received their official Minecraft gaming badges. In spite of a few technical issues with my son's laptop, they had a good time at Minecraft week #1. The second week was a whole lot better!  With the laptop issues resolved, our team of two had a great time and came in 2nd against a team with eight players!  Here are a few of the shots I took.







Now it's the third week and the boys are so excited and ready to play.  So we get there and we are automatically ushered into the theater and the boys get set up.  Everyone has brought their chargers and is pumped up for today's competition.  


It is now the last day!   




The boys loved their Minecraft experience!  Here they are at their victory dinner!  They came in second place  from about 7 groups!


Overall, a highly recommended experience for your Minecraft gamers!

A big personal Thank You to USFamilyGuide.com and Super League Gaming for the opportunity to play and review this awesome experience!

All opinions are 100% my own.

#PutYourHeartToPaper with Hallmark

I love Hallmark and am one of the lucky ones to belong to this wonderful Hallmark group.
Disclosure:  I received a set of Hallmark Mothers Day cards in an exchange for an honest review all opions are 100% my own.

Here are the cards I received! #lovehallmark #PutYourHeartToPaperwithHallmark



















Mothers day is a day to show and tell your mom how much you love her!! I know sometimes me and my mom didn't always see eye to eye but I know that she loves me and was always there for me.  Now as a mother of two boys, I realize that I absolutely love being a mom. As I look at my older son, I also see a lot of me when I was young. Please help us! lol no, I mean I was also very stubborn at his age!  Being a mom is just awesome! I love traveling this amazing journey with both my sons.  And being a mom also doesn't have to mean biological - meaning there are adopted moms, grandmas and aunts and etc..It's the woman that raised you and gave you her heart, it's the woman that was there for you to chase the nightmares away or kiss a boo boo away. It's the woman that cheered for you at soccer or went head to head with a teacher for you.  It's the woman that gives you love and support no matter what and loves you unconditionally!   So here for this special day let's celebrate moms!   So we have teamed up with Hallmark to offer one of my readers to win a 5 card pack randomly selected!! This giveaway is for the US only!!
