Gold Rush Review

Gold Rush Panning Kit box

My family and I have been big fans for the TV show Gold Rush on Discovery Channel since it first began in Alaska in 2010.  We watched for seasons hoping they would hit pay dirt and the mother lode!  Yes, we actually talk like that, using all the mining jargon the Hoffman crew does.  Once […]

3Doodler Review

3Doodler Start Set

I was thrilled beyond belief to receive this free 3Doodler starter set to review.  The company also provided me with another free kit to share with a friend.  I held a party with 13 adults and 7 kids.

Word Slam Game Review

  This is the second Thames and Kosmos game I have been asked to hold a game night for. The first was Ubongo review and it was a ton of fun.  Word Slam is a fun game, but very different than Ubongo.  Word Slam is really made for adult teams. We had 13 adults and 7 kids […]

Full Circle Cleaning Products Review

Full Circle products

I was awarded a Spring Cleaning Party by Tryazon. My party pack included over $100 of cleaning products from Full Circle.   Full Circle is a line of environmentally friendly, chemical free cleaning products.

We started by reading all the instructions and testing out the Ozobots on the included tracks. Then the […]
