Image result for Sunbutter crunchy   We love it just for the great taste! Sunbutter! We were sent sunbutter in the past to review and now we are sharing with you all once again about Sunbutter and this time it is Sunbutter CRUNCH. I always love Chrunchy peanut butter and let me tell you, you will not be disappointed with the great flavor and crunch of Sunbutter. They just do it right. Sure, it doesn't taste exactly like peanut butter but that isn't what this is. It is butter made with Sunflower seeds. If you love Sunflowers you will love this and it is a great new flavor to try. Imagine Sunflower fudge, sunflower sandwiches, sunflower cookies. Perfect for Holiday baking! I am not allergic to peanuts but if you are this is the stuff to use! It looks like peanut butter and has the same consistency but it is Sunflower seeds so this is perfect for anyone who has peanut issues. I love it. It is tasty and give me another great flavor to make recipes with. Try it for yourself .. You may even like it better than good old peanut butter! Also a wonderful gift to slip into someone's stocking or to put in gift baskets! 

  These are a wonderful treat to review! I am loving my solar shield sunglasses that slip right over my readers.. or your prescription glasses. I do a lot of crocheting or reading while Clay is driving and hate to deal with the sun. I can just slip these right over my readers when he's driving and enjoy the shade. I also enjoying grabbing a cup of coffee on a nice winter day and reading outside for a few minutes and when the sun is really bright these puppies will save the day! What a wonderful gift to give someone this year or yourself!

LOVE MY PEEPS FOR THE HOLIDAYS! We were sent a nice selection of peeps to try for the Holidays. We sooo love the Minions that I was really happy to see that they were included for our Best Product tour for the Holidays! These are great stocking stuffers and great treats to share throughout the Holiday season! And who wouldn't want to get a Candy cane peep from a secret santa? 

they are great for showering at home and at the gym. This is the perfect gift to give anyone who loves sports or for their own personal use. These babies protect anywhere where germs lurk. Is your daughter a cheerleader? Your son into sports at school? Great for all school activities to keep your kids safe as well. I use mine in and out of the shower.

 Solid Gold Dogfood review

Image result for christmas poinsettias

     If you are a animal lover you will fall in love and be able to relate to  Jan Dunlap the author of Saved by Gracie. She takes on a rescue dog who saves her life from what troubles her.  Jan is suffering with anxiety and even though she wasn't thrilled about this big lug of a dog Gracie she finds that Gracie is the answer to her anxieties even though she is a pain and a bother at first as she adjusts to living with the Dunlap family. Sometimes when we help others we get help ourselves. I like what I heard recently about Mr. Rogers one of our childhood shows when you see disasters on TV look for the "helping people" .  Jan finds that as she helps and works with Gracie it is transforming her life. You can pick up a copy at .

Misfit Shine Fitness and sleep Monitor Review

I received a Misfit shine for my honest review. If you are like me you have been hearing a lot about this type of product but what is the Misfit shine?  It is a fitness tracker and with that it,  stands apart from the competition in that it is waterproof! It is so light that you can virtually forget it is on. It comes with accessories so that it can be worn anyway you are comfortable, arm, neck or even just as a clip on. The Shine app also gives information on the number of steps you have taken in a day or even a week. There is a lot to be said for the Misfit Shine and the technology behind it but at the end of the day it really is a great fitness tracker for those who are serious about getting into shape. Easy to use and not bothersome. A little like putting in your contacts everyday or earrings just a quick part of your getting ready for the day. This would be a wonderful gift for the Christmas season and the price point is around 69.00 so you really can't beat it. To order yours go to <a href="">Misfit Shine - Activity and Sleep Monitor</a><img

This is a must read for anyone who loves Senior Citizens who are full of spunk! I loved the look at retirement living and the thoughts and outspoken remarks of Agnes Hopper, who finds herself moving from her home to her daughter 's home to a retirement home. First reaction is a plan to get out until she finds all kinds of things not measuring up and she's on a mission to do some work to get things in order. Being a natural lover of Senior Citizens having a Mom who is also full of it, so to speak I adored this. Of course my thoughts go to the day I may end up moving in to a retirement home myself. A fun read with a lot of insight as well as to why you need to do your homework on finding a great place to live in your older years. Agnes was adorable and her friends were lots of fun too. I found myself chuckling at many of the people in the book. I got tickled when the young man brought in fruit and all the ladies were glued stuck to him- one lady straightening out her necklace. Lots of fun- mystery, romance and fun. A very enjoyable fast paced read. - PopleBackyardFarm

If you are looking for a good bed for your dog or cat look no further! We were sent a dog bed for our "Stormie" from  for our honest review. First of all I was pleased at the amount of choices that were available. If you are like me your pets are your little babies and they all have their own little personalities so being able to choose was great. When the bed arrived it was packaged nicely and immediately I could see that the workmanship was superb. Inside the bed is a Sherpa to keep Stormie extra warm. Another nice feature is that I can put the bed in the washing machine which is a major for this Mommy. This is a wonderful gift to give your pet this holiday too!

 I was sent a copy of the Backyard Homestead published by for my honest review. This covers it all! 
If you want to start a backyard homestead this is a great resource that covers everything from canning, to gardening to eggs, milking goats. etc.  A excellent out the door book for those new to homesteading. I think this would also be a excellent textbook for those teaching farming to our youth as it is so varied and gives the basics for just about everything! Storey has many resources for those who love the farming lifestyle.
