My Repurpose cups review

When I first received these and started using them, I was really impressed that you could use these with hot hot coffee and not get burned. You don't need a sleeve while drinking out of these cups. These cups keeps your beverage warmer longer and also prevents heat from escaping the cup while protecting the user from burning their hands without the use of a jacket or sleeve.

These cups are made of plant material..and honestly are the best cups around. It's chlorine free and uses soy based inks, these are the greenest cups around. If you are looking for ways to be green and protect the earth then these cups are the way to go.. they so much better than styrofoam cups.  You can reuse them by planting little tomato plants and they really have a great feel to them. I can't say enough about these cups just that I wished I would have noticed them sooner.

You can buy these cups at this store Bed bath and beyond

Disclosure: I received this product for review purposes only, no monetary value was exchanged.

Rascal Flatts movie theater review

I was lucky to be selected by One2onenetwork to go the one night event at the movie theater of Rascal Flatts and hear some songs from their newest album "Changed"
I asked my friend Jackie who really likes Rascal Flatts if she wanted to go and see them at the theater and we had a great time.  It was a girls night without the kids.

When we first got there we talked to the manager and he directed us to the movie.  When we got into the theater there was only one other person in there.  when the movie started there was a little bit technical difficulties but the manager soon fixed it.

I really had a great time, we got to hear about the stories behind the music, which was very heart warming and some of the stories really touched home and brought tears to my eyes.   I could feel myself being drawn in by the stories and the music.

The journey began when Jay and Gary, from Columbus Ohio area and Joe Don from Picher, Oklahoma, teamed up in a club in Nashville's Printer Alley.  "We knew right away we had something special, says Jay, 

They all agreed that Changed is the best work that they've done, and part of that stems from their ability to draw on their long experience together.

"We couldn't have made this album any earlier in our career, " says Jay.  "We had to go through a lot of stuff to get to this point."

We heard some of the songs from their newest album called "Changed" which was released on April 3,2012

  1. Banjo 
  2. Come wake me up
  3. Let it hurt
  4. Changed
  5. She's leaving
  6. Hot in here
I won't let go
Life is a highway

I was just amazed with this trio and the inspiration of this band was awesome.

They did some trivia questions, and some Q & A with the audience.
They talked about their passion for fighting hunger.  You can read more about that mission
They talked about their lives as being married and as being a Father..
They talked about how they got into music and how it inspired their soul.

If you want to see their video that is a smash hit Banjo.

Changed is their eighth album.
This is their 13th yr singing as Rascal Flatts.

I had such a great time with my friend and this band I have grown to love their songs, and their music really touches my heart.

Rascal Flatts is giving away tickets

I'am a member of One2onenetwork and I received tickets to see Rascal Flatts at my theater in exchange for a review.  No monetary compensation was received and all opinions are 100% my own.
