Pumpkin Patch Blessings by Kim Washburn Book Review

by Kim Washburn (Author), Jacqueline East (Illustrator)

Book Description
Pumpkin Patch Blessings celebrates fall and shows little ones there are blessings all around us, especially in the pumpkin patch! The sweet rhyming text by Kim Washburn and whimsical illustrations by Jacqueline East bring autumn alive for readers young and old as they take in the fun of the fall season and remember how much they have to be grateful for.

About the Author
Kim Washburn has been writing for children for more than ten years. While working at Focus on the Family, two of her original stories were recognized by the Evangelical Press Association, including first place in the fiction category. Her nonfiction books for young readers have reached a wide audience―including Breaking Through by Grace: The Bono Story and Defender of Faith: The Mike Fisher Story.

My Review:
Pumpkin Patch Blessings by Kim Washburn is an adorable cute children's board book! I absolutely love fall so my family and I go all out. Pumpkin Patch Blessings is the perfect way to celebrates fall by teaching kids about the blessings that are all around us, especially in the pumpkin patch. I love the rhyming text throughout this book as well as the beautiful illustrations. My kids have been asking to read this book before bed for the last few days and after reading they always ask about visiting our local pumpkin patch because it's something we do each year. I love seeing them get excited about fall but more importantly I love seeing them recognize the blessings of the fall season and remembering to be thankful for all that God has given us. Pumpkin Patch Blessings is a wonderful way to kickoff the upcoming fall season!

You can find Pumpkin Patch Blessings by Kim Washburn on Amazon, ZondervanBarnes and Noble and other bookstores.

My Review:
Homeself Waterproof Hard Shell 30 Bottle Essential Oil Carrying Case is awesome! I've built up a pretty impressive collection of essential oils over the last year and up until now I've been storing them on top of my fridge. Not a great idea! I've had a few broken bottles and it makes the house smell for days. Not necessarily a bad thing if it happens to be one of my favorite oils but usually it's not. Homeself Waterproof Hard Shell 30 Bottle Essential Oil Carrying Case holds 30 bottles of various sizes and keeps them all safe and contained. The foam inside is very protective and keeps the bottles safe even if the whole case is dropped. I'm making myself sound very clumsy but when you're dealing with many glass bottles you really need to have a protective case. Homeself Waterproof Hard Shell 30 Bottle Essential Oil Carrying Case is perfect and for the price you definitely can't go wrong!

My Review:
GDEALER Talking Instant Read Cooking Thermometer is the perfect cooking thermometer! I absolutely love how quickly I can get a reading and that it's accurate. I've always had the hardest time cooking chicken because I'm always worried about under cooking and because of this I tend to really overcook it. With GDEALER Talking Instant Read Cooking Thermometer I was able to monitor the temperature of the chicken as I cook it and remove it from heat once it reached the desired temperature. The chicken was actually moist and delicious. I also really like that I can push the button and it will read the temperature for me. This is really handy while cooking because I don't have to remove it to read it. The GDEALER Talking Instant Read Cooking Thermometer also lights up so you can see if you're barbecuing in the evening and happen to need a little extra light. GDEALER Talking Instant Read Cooking Thermometer makes me a confident cook when I'm cooking meat because I no longer have to guess when it's done! 

I highly recommend this GDEALER Talking Instant Read Cooking Thermometer!

IHOP®'s New Delectable Criss-Croissants® are Delicious!


About IHOP®
Since 1958, IHOP® has been the place where people connect over breakfast, enjoy study breaks, grab a bite before or after sporting events, and so much more. And no matter what menu items they order, there’s one ingredient that’s always constant — a smile. We’ve seen millions of smiles over the years in our restaurants, and now shared in photos across our social properties. In fact, smiles are so much a part of our culture that we changed our logo to include one.

This is just one of the many fun and exciting changes you can expect from IHOP®. Because we know the shortest distance between two people is a smile.


We bake our flakey, buttery croissant pastry in a
waffle iron. Then fill with cool dulce de leche cream
and sliced fresh bananas, and top it off with a drizzle
of salted caramel sauce. It’s one sweet masterpiece.

With 27 layers, our flakey croissant pastry is waffled,
then filled with scrambled eggs, fresh spinach and
roasted red peppers. We top it with White Cheddar
and Parmesan Cheese and a drizzle of Hollandaise.
Savor the flavor day or night!

We “waffle” our flakey and buttery croissant pastry,
then fill it with sweet cream cheese and top it with
even sweeter glazed strawberries. It’s sure to satisfy
any sweet tooth, any time—day or night.

Complete this savory and sweet breakfast experience with a combo!
Take your Criss-Croissant® breakfast to the next level by adding on one of our egg combo options.
They’re a great addition to your breakfast, lunch, or dinner - and a great value!

My Review:
IHOP®'s New Delectable Criss-Croissants® are Delicious! I had the pleasure of trying the Strawberries & Sweet Cream Cheese Criss-Croissant for myself and let me just tell you it is AMAZING! I love strawberries but IHOP takes that love to a whole new level. The sweet cream cheese inside the Strawberries & Sweet Cream Cheese Criss-Croissant kind of tames the sweetness and makes it an absolute perfect combination. I also love that you can pair the Criss-Croissants® with a combo making it an incredible deal. 

My husband likes his breakfast a little more savory than sweet so he tried the Spinach & Roasted Red Pepper Criss-Croissant and while I only managed to snag a few bites I will say that it's pretty darn good as well. My daughter had the Salted Caramel & Banana Criss-Croissant and I absolutely loved it even though I'm not a huge fan of salted caramel. The banana and caramel really pair together nicely. 

If you're looking for the perfect place to have a family breakfast that everyone can enjoy then head on down to your local IHOP and try the new Criss-Croissants®!

Enjoy the Go with Charmin Essentials Soft & Charmin Essentials Strong!


Life is full of little pleasures.

Watching the sunset. A hug from your kids. Walking barefoot in the sand.
And going to the bathroom.
Trouble is, you might not always take the time to enjoy these little moments as much as you should.
Especially when it comes to going to the bathroom.
At Charmin, we want you to enjoy going to the bathroom as much as we do.
The relief. The calm. The clean. The joy. The pride.
And we believe you can’t do that if you finish it all off with the wrong tissue.
Which is why we make a tissue that’s just right for everybody.
That's why Charmin users actually look forward to going to the bathroom; why they enjoy being in there; and why they aren't afraid to show it.

My Review:
Enjoy the go with Charmin Essentials Soft & Charmin Essentials Strong! Definitely never thought I'd be reviewing toilet paper but here we are. Anyway, I'm actually pretty picky when it comes to toilet paper for many reasons. 

Charmin Essentials Soft & Charmin Essentials Strong is absolutely perfect for my household. Not only is Charmin Essentials Soft & Charmin Essentials Strong perfect for everyday use in the bathroom but it's also perfect for cleaning up little noses. Right now my family and I all have colds so we're doing lots of nose cleanup and let me just tell you I'm loving Charmin Essentials Soft & Charmin Essentials Strong. Not only is is gentle enough for noses but it also doesn't fall apart when wet. As you can imagine this is something that we all probably look for in toilet paper. I also love that Charmin Essentials Soft & Charmin Essentials Strong doesn't clog my toilets. I have 4 little ones, 3 of them old enough to use the toilet and everyone knows little ones love to use lots of toilet paper. We actually have a tape line on the wall for them so they know how much to use but with our old toilet paper we still got the occasional clogs. Since using Charmin Essentials Soft & Charmin Essentials Strong we haven't gotten a single clog. Actually my toilets seem to be working better than ever if that's possible. Not sure if that's from using Charmin Essentials Soft & Charmin Essentials Strong but I'll take it. 

Charmin Essentials Soft is 2-ply toilet paper and Charmin Essentials Strong is one ply so there's a ply that's right for everyone!

IFME Footwear for Babies and Kids Support Healthy Foot Development!



OUR STORY
IFME was launched in 1999 as the original brand of Marubeni Footwear. With a priority on the healthy development of children’s feet, the brand was developed based on research and development with Japanese based medical professionals specializing in children’s feet. Since 2009 IFME had sold a total of 16 million pairs of shoes globally. IFME now boasts an extensive network of 1,800 stores in Japan, Hong Kong, and Taiwan and is launching in the U.S. in spring, 2016.

The name IFME, short for “IF it was ME,” reflects the brand’s deep commitment to customer satisfaction. This attitude is upheld throughout all aspects of production and distribution. The brand concept – making shoes that support the healthy development of children’s feet – remains at the heart of IFME.

Reasons for IFME 's popularity:

Product development is backed by cutting-edge sports medicine
IFME works directly with Dr. Torii, professor at Waseda University’s division of Sports Sciences, as part of an academic-industrial alliance. As a result, IFME offers unique features and design elements that support the foot’s movement and help muscles exert their full potential.

Reasonable pricing
Children’s feet grow so fast that parents find themselves buying shoes all the time. The IFME brand is backed by Marubeni Footwear, which has vast experience in producing shoes from start to finish for well-known shoe brands. By utilizing quality resources Marubeni is able to produce an affordable shoe. 

Washable/Functional/Removable Insole
Studies show an increasing number of children suffer from flat feet. To promote correct foot position and posture, IFME has developed a unique functional insole that allows the toes to splay and advances healthy arch development.

MOFF Technology
IFME shoes also utilize a unique technology called MOFF, or “Marvelous Odor Free Fiber.” This is a natural cotton-based deodorizing fiber mechanically treated by superior nanotechnology. MOFF absorbs 150 times as much ammonia odor as activated charcoal at 20 times the speed.

My Review:
IFME footwear for babies and kids support healthy development of children’s feet! I swear my kids are some of the pickiest kids around when it comes to shoes. Usually they complain about the shoes being too tight because all 4 of my kids seem to have wide feet. With both the IFME Runner and Ace as soon as I slipped them on I sort of held my breath waiting for my kids to start complaining but nothing. My son actually ran around trying to jump and my daughter said they felt amazing because they didn't squeeze her feet. Finding my one year old shoes has been quite the battle. We visited many stores trying to find him shoes that not only fit his wide foot but also had enough room for the top of his foot because he seems to have quite a bit of baby fat on the top of his foot. Most shoes wouldn't even fit on his foot but the IFME Ace slipped right on. 

IFME shoes are extremely light weight and have a really good arch support. I also really like the MOFF Technology that IFME offers because the Marvelous Odor Free Fiber keeps my kids shoes from smelling. My kids are much like me and they don't like to wear socks but when they do that with their shoes the shoes become smelly pretty quickly. With these IFME shoes I haven't noticed any bad smells and my kids wear them all the time without socks. However, if they do become a little smelly or dirty inside the insoles are removable and washable. IFME shoes are incredible!

As a runner I know how important it is to have a good pair of shoes, but for kids I would say it's even more important. Having a good pair of shoes like these shoes from IFME can support healthy foot development allowing children's feet to grow properly. I remember being a kid and wearing shoes that didn't fit right and let me tell you I have some feet issues today. I cannot say for sure that that's what caused it but I can tell you that I firmly believe in purchasing shoes that support healthy foot development. 

IFME shoes are amazingly awesome and I highly recommend them!
