 Labor Day Weekend Pool Time & Barbecue

Not only is this Labor Day weekend but there is more that takes the cake.

  • We have awesome weather (in the 90′s).
  • We will be barbecuing tomorrow and swimming.
  • We are having a big party for my daughter’s birthday with about 45 guests.
  • I found some great deals on meat, pies, beer and more at Fresh & Easy.

Such a win-win, right?   In no time at all I will be pool side while my dad convinces my brother, the vegetarian in the family, to run the barbecue.  Yes, he does it. Yes, it is funny.

So, because I found such awesome deals I thought I’d share some of what I found.

Fresh and Easy has a huge selection of meats, included a Grill Master Set that has three types of seasoned meat in one packaging.  They also had three types of pre-seasoned burger patties, salmon, some yummy chili citrus cilantro chicken and more.  Fresh corn on the cob was 2 for $1 too!

On top of that, I found Mountain Dew soda in a glass bottle (guy I’m dating loves Mountain Dew so I thought it was neat in a retro-vintage sort of way to find it in a glass bottle).

Lots of pies!  Peach is my favorite and my daughter loved the apple with a beautiful lattice on the top. What else is better with pie than to make it a la mode?  The ice cream is all ’2 for $7′ so we have to get vanilla (for the kids) and rocky road (for me).

Alcohol selections were fantastic, including a whole aisle of wines and beer on sale!  Budweiser, Bud Light, Miller Lite & Coors Light are on sale for only $18.99 for a 30-pack!

This weekend is definitely going to be a blast with lots of food, family and fun!  A perfect way for summer to be coming to an end and the new school year just starting.

Scotch Duct Tape Creations

Disclaimer:One or more products below were provided for free. However the review is my honest opinion. This post may include affiliate links.

Scotch Duct Tape Creations.

Duct tape isn’t what it used to be. When I was a kid when someone talked about duct tape it meant tape kept in the garage, with the tools, used for fixing and repairing stuff.  There was even jokes with my best friend about her dad trying to fix a broken nose with duct tape (her mom made him go to the hospital).  Well, now a days duct tape has a whole new meaning.  It is used to create a wide array of art projects.  Anything from purses and wallets to bookmarkers and headbands.  It comes in a huge assortment of colors and patterns too.

My daughter loves creating with duct tape and can make about 10 different things.  We even found a blog online for duct tape creations.  We have bought duct tape on eBay, at office supply stores and at department stores and with these purchases we have discovered not all duct tape is created equal.  Some offer skinnier rolls or ones that aren’t as thick.  Others seem to not stick as well or are harder to cut.   We have discovered 3M’s brand of Scotch Duct Tape to work great for anything she makes.

NYC Color That Lasts #NailPolish #NYC #NailArt

Disclaimer:One or more products below were provided for free. However the review is my honest opinion. This post may include affiliate links.

NYC Color That Lasts

I’m not great at doing my nails but I’m learning.  I do a lot of yard work and often mess up recently painted nails and paying the prices of almost $30 (with tip) at a salon is too much for me.  So, I’m trying and learning.  I’ve learned a lot from Life of a Mad Typer and her tutorials and some of it just takes time and practice.   Something else very important (I’ve learned this the hard way) is having good-quality polish.  I received some really awesome colors from Sally Hansen and NYC as well as some Sun Bronze powder and Liquid Lipshine.

IMG_0327

The Sun ‘n’ Bronze is a great bronzing powder in a 0.42 oz container. This color is Coral Samba Bronzer.  It is a perfect way to blend colors for cheeks and contours for a flawless natural look.

IMG_0334NYC Nail Art is a great way to add fine-tip details to nails.  I love how bright the color is and it has an ultra-thin tip.  The Liquid Lipshine Lip Gloss looks like it’d be a normal lipgloss but it is so shiny it stands out and really shows off the lips.   This one is the shade called Papaya.  It also comes in Passion Fruit and Guava.
IMG_0332 The Color Frenzy collection from Sally Hansen is to-die-for-pretty.  These glittery colors are great on their own or over a matching color.  I used the Sparkle & Pepper over the Cobalt Chrome Color Foil for an extra bright and glittery look. The other colors here are: Red, White & Hue, Splattered and Candy Drop.IMG_0331 I’ve never used Color Foil before but it was easy to get the hang of and the colors are just BANG-awesome! I tried out all three colors and think every one is totally amazing.IMG_0330 Here is blue, silver, pink (and then the same blue) on my nails sans touch-up or a clear coat.  I love how shiny and bright they are. Definitely awesome!IMG_0326 These three are from NYC and are In A New York Minute colors.  These quick-drying nail polish are electrifying in color and offer a nail strengthening formula in each one.  I love using Minute Quick polishes when I’m trying to paint my nails while in a hurry and want something that dries fast.  The green, Palm on the Beach, is my favorite color.

IMG_0329

You can find New York Color, BUC, products at chain drugstores, mass merchandisers and online at New York Color.

K’nex Brings Family Fun & Imagination Together

My family love imaginative play.  Building, creating, inventing, make believe and more.  K’nex is an awesome way to have the family all hang out and build something.  I love how some items are just ‘have fun and build’ while others are themed and some kits even have a few choices of what to build, with instructions.  I received six different sets for a review.  Some I let the kids play with now and a few I hid for rainy days.  K’nex has all sorts of building sets for little and big kids.

This set is called ’52 Model Building Set.’  It has 618 pieces and is for age 7+.  This set takes  the cake in fun!  It has 52 different things to build (with instructions).  One for each week of the year. IMG_0565 Plants vs Zombies is a favorite of my nephew.  These sets, Football Mech and Cone Mech, have a motor in them so that the toy can be turned on to move.  Each set includes on zombie too.IMG_0566 I love the shape of this box.  ’35 Building Ideas’ has 35 different building ideas from cranes to helicopters and more.  Make a car with real wheels or even a swing set.  480 pieces total.

IMG_0567Titanfall’s IMC Pilot Strike Building Set.  Includes limited edition figure. and even fires a missile. 86 pieces, ages 8+. 
IMG_0568 Who doesn’t know who Super Mario is?  Mario Bros has been a family name since the 80′s and this fun set is from the Super Mario 3D Worlds.  Cat Mario (yes, the figuring really looks like Mario in a cat suit) and Mouse are Limited Edition.  There are clear pipes to climb through, You can make Mario bounce and be flung across the set, raise the flag pole and more.  Set for age 8+ and has 226 pieces.
