Blue State Red State Coffee Review

Coffee is my morning need, and yes I meant need. We have a deep love for each other but that does not mean that I will drink just any coffee. I want a coffee that smells delicious when opened, when brewing and tasted wonderful. It also helps if it is organic and any company that gives back to the community gets a plus in my book.  This is what I found in Blue State Red State coffee. 

About Blue State Red State
Blue State Red State has partnered with Larry’s Beans to offer you the highest quality, absolute best coffee on the planet! Their coffee is Fair Trade, Shade Grown and Organic and they have the documentation to back it up. All their coffee is slow roasted in small batches to bring out the complexities and deliciousness of each coffee’s native flavor. 33% of after tax profits is donated to charity. 

Blue State Red State, LLC operates three distinct brands:
• Blue State Red State – donations to charities and politically neutral non-profit organizations
• Blue State Blue – donations to Democratic advocacy groups
• Red State Red – donations to Republican advocacy groups

The Coffee:
I was sent a package of Ramparts Roast which is their stronger blend – robust, deep and bold with a delightful smoky accent! Good for me because the stronger the better in my book!! The coffee smelled great brewing and tasted even better. A bonus? You can order it online and have it delivered right to your door!

Ordering Information:
Blue State Red State Website  2 (12oz) bags for $19.98
You can also purchase the coffee on their Facebook Page. 

I was provided a sample of Ramparts Roast by Family Review Network and Blue State Red State in order to provide my honest review. All opinions are my own and 100% honest.

Saving time will online shopping

Time, one thing I think everyone can use more of. One thing I could use help with is comparing prices of an item I want to buy. Once I get started I get lost and can end up searching for hours, finally realizing I have no idea what I was searching for to begin with.  Now I have is a site where you can compare tons of items and their prices from websites all over the internet. Save time and money comparing prices quickly! And how could not use more money with their time? I know I could!! 

Compare prices for inflatable couches like the Dora one below that would be great for Big J's room when she has guests over! Extra space without taking up extra room! Why did I not dream up inflatable couches??
Perhaps you are counting the days until your apartment complex pool opens, as I am, Memorial Day here we come.  So to help pass the time you decide to find the perfect Foam Pool Floats for you and the family, well can help you with that! I am going for the lounger below so I can finally take some time to relax! is also good for finding gifts such as an easton sv12 for my nephew. Yes I had to look it up to see that it is a bat.  The site even checks for prices on Ebay!  Now all that is left is to decide what to do with my free time.

Kymaro Cardi Wrap Review

With just a Twist, Wrap, Toss, or Knot, you can accentuate your best features and hide your imperfections!

Who wouldn’t want that in a wrap? I have to admit though I was just excited to have something nice that I could wear at the office to keep me warm. (Of course when I get a job) For now I am able to wear it with the weird NC weather where it is warm then cold and back again.

The Kymaro Cardi Wrap is available in two sizes and 7 colors and allows you to create over 50 different looks. 
I choose the black color because I felt it went with everything I owned and was the most wearable for my life. 

With each Cardi Wrap you also receive a free accessory kit that includes 3 bangles, flower and bow brooch. Of course the minute she saw the bangles Big J made them her own.  I also loved how the Cardi Wrap was so soft, I just wanted to cuddle in it. So not only do you get 50+ looks it is so soft and comfortable. Great item for someone who loves to change their look without buying a million items. 

This post was written for Family Review Network & Cardi Wrap who provided the complimentary product for review in exchange for my honest opinions.

I am failing at blogging

I just have not had the energy, time or motivation to post. Well I do have plenty of ideas but finding an hour of quiet where there is not a child wanting something is impossible these days!! If I start writing and then walk away I lose my train of thought, it is bad.

Little J has gotten very needy, yelling and whining a lot. She also is teething very bad and does not sleep well which means no one sleeps well lately!

Add to all that I am still looking for a job and trying to keep Big J entertained and out of trouble.

Munchies' Lunch Game Review

Warning this game is addictive and your children will want you to play it over and over. Of course you will not mind because you will want to play it again and again too. 

Footloose Games has created a PC game inspired by the journey of a real family, Munchies' Lunch is an epic story that plays as an exciting puzzle-adventure game!

Your job is to lead your family away from the dangerous Hungries (the creatures) who are invading your forest dwelling. Gather fruits for your kids as Mrs. Munchie and avoid fights with the devious creatures that will get in your way.

Munchies' Lunch is quick to pick up and play, yet tough to master. You'll find yourself coming back for one more level in this challenging and addictive game. Collect powerful foods and items that will give you the edge over your opponents and become the family hero!

Munchies' Lunch can be purchased from their website.

Munchies' Lunch is not your typical video game. The story of Munchies' Lunch was inspired by a real family's journey from their home caught up in civil war. Even though the game is about collecting fruit for the Munchie kids and avoiding monsters, ultimately it's about love. Read the story behind Munchies’ Lunch
