Clubs Galore Review

Disclosure - free sample provided



Clubs Galore is a unique website that has great gift options of all kinds.  This is a great website with Father's Day coming up too.  Clubs Galore offers all types of gift boxes.  These boxes have certain themes.  They appeal to all different tastes.  They offer Dessert Boxes, Bagel Boxes, Bourbon Gifts, Prime Rib Boxes, and much more.  The selection that they offer is so extensive that you can find the perfect gift for just about anyone.  

The best thing about Clubs Galore is that they take the work out of going to the store, shopping, packing, and then mailing off a gift to someone special.  The gift is delivered right to that special someone.  Do you know someone that would love  gift from Clubs Galore?




I received the Bacon Sampler Club gift box from Clubs Galore.  Yum!  This bacon is so good.  This is sure to impress any bacon lover.  This is perfect for dad for Father's day too!  This gift retails for $39.99.  It is definitely worth it.  This is some of the tastiest bacon that I have ever had!  This is just one of the many bacon gift items that Clubs Galore offers.

Brain Freeze Journal - Review

Disclosure - free sample provided.



This is the cutest little journal.  It is perfect for the Summer weather.  It makes a great gift for a young girl.  It would even make a really cute gift for a teacher at the end of the year.  This journal looks just like a neopolatin ice cream sandwich.  We were really impressed with how the outside of the journal looks just like the cookie part of an ice cream sandwich.  The cookie type cover is kind of squishy too.  My 9 year old loves using this journal to write in.  I am honestly a little jealous that she confiscated it right away to use.  This little journal will put a smile on just about anyone's face that receives it.  

The Brain Freeze Journal retails for about $16.99.  You can learn more about it here, or find out how to even your very own.  


I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.

The Thank You Book - Review

Disclosure - free sample provided.



I honestly fell in love with the book the minute I picked it up.  It is adorable.  It is fun, and well written.  This is the 25th and final book in Mo Willems series.  Has your child read any of the Elephant and Piggie books in the series?  They really are a great read for early readers.

Mo Willems is a New York times best selling author and illustrator.  He is also a Caldecott award winner.  Did you know that he started out as an writer and animator on Sesame Street?  His work really is ipressive.

The Thank You Book is great for young readers because it includes simple words.  It also has tons of colorful pictures.  This is a great book to read to toddlers and pre-school aged children.  The best part about this book is that it  teaches young children the importance of manners.  It teaches them the importance of using the words, "thank you."

Summer Reading - Camp Rolling Hills

Disclosure - free sample provided.

Are your kids ready for Summer vacation?  Are they going to camp this year?  Mine are ready for vacation and Summer camp.  Camp Rolling Hills is book series that is great for children that are getting ready to go to Summer camp.  This series is perfect for first time campers. This series is written by Stacy Davidowitz.

I am also always looking for great books for my kids to read over the Summer.  This series is perfect because it is Summertime themed.  I would suggest this series for children that are at about 3rd grade reading level and up.  My daughter is getting ready to finish 3rd grade and this book is the perfect level for her.  




Camp Rolling Hills - Book 1
The first book in this series is all about Stephanie.  She is very excited to head back to Summer camp this year.  This book follows Stephanie and all her adventures at camp.  The author does a great job entertaining young readers with the different events throughout the story.  She also adds humor to her writing, and it really makes it easy for young readers to get into this cute series.




Camp Rolling Hills - Book 2
Crossing Over is the second book in the Camp Rolling Hills series.  This book follows Melman on her adventures at camp rolling hills.  She is excited to return to Camp Rolling Hills.  Melman is also a big fan of everything pink.  This book also follows Steinberg.  Steinberg has a hard beginning to his Summer.  This book is a fun read too.

What are your children planning on reading this Summer?  Feel free to leave a comment with some of the books that are on their Summer reading list that they can't wait to read.

Harlem Globetrotters Las Vegas - Review

Disclosure - free sample provided.

I have always enjoyed going to see the Harlem Globetrotters.  I remember going as a child.  The Harlem Globetrotters are amazing.  That was about 30 years ago.  Did you know that the Harlem Globetrotters are celebrating being around for over 90 years.  This truly is impressive, but it isn't even a question as to why they have been so popular for so long.  







The Harlem Globetrotters played at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.  We really enjoyed the event.  The Globetrotters combine basketball, with comedy, stunts, and so much more.  It is truly an entertaining event.  They get the crowd involved.  This is a family friendly event.  Children absolutely love it.  My 9 and 11 year old had a great time.  My husband and I enjoyed it too.  We enjoyed the basketball, but the Globetrotters had us hysterical.

Do you have a favorite Globetrotter?  I truly think my favorite is Big Easy, but it is hard to pick a favorite.  They are all talented at what they do, and make the events special for everyone that attends.  I suggest checking out a Harlem Globetrotters game if they come to a city near you.
