Petbrosia and My Belle



Hey neighbors!

Belle, our blue merle Sheltie, recently was able to try out a special blend of Petbrosia.  Petbrosia gathers information on your dog and then creates a nutritional food specifically for him/her.  When you first go in to order, they will ask what breed, or mix of breeds your dog is.  Then they will find out it's age, size, and activity level, all so your pet will receive the right amount of nutrition.  They will also tell you when you receive your shipment how much and how often your dog should be fed.  Yes, they deliver right to your door!

Belle receives 2 cups of Grain-free Salmon food per day.  We usually feed her 1 cup in the morning and 1 cup later in the afternoon.  They actually break down her requirements for me.  See picture below.

What are the benefits of Salmon?
    Salmon is an excellent source of vitamins, essential fatty acids, and protein, and can be a great meat alternative for senior dogs and dogs with food allergies or sensitivities.

·         Our Grain-Free Salmon is truly a single protein formula.

·         Added L-Carnitine, helps the body utilize fat for energy while maintaining the lean muscle mass which helps reduce the overall body fat.




Belle is a Sheltie and as such is really active.  Just see her when she is given free reign of the back yard.   She doesn't stop.  Belle needs different nutrients than a more laid back dog would need.  Petbrosia gives you the ability to do just that.  We have a friend who has a dog who is really a low activity level dog.  She obviously does not have the same daily requirements that Belle would.


Petbrosia delivers directly to you.  You can choose to have a regular delivery shipped automatically every month, or you can order as needed.  As your pet ages, Petbrosia will update the information so your dog will continue to receive exactly what they need.  Petbrosia uses real free run chicken and salmon.  They are antibiotic and hormone free.  There are no corn, soy, wheat, gluten, or by-product meal.  They include vitamins and supplements to help your pet.  Included in every Petbrosia diet is Glucosamine and Chondroitin to help your pet maintain healthy joints.



Excuse the barking.  Some of the older dogs are not happy Belle gets fed twice! LOL!

Every pet is Unique, is Petbrosia's theme.  You wouldn't feed a Chihuahua puppy the same thing you would feed an adult Saint Bernard.  Take some time and check out Petbrosia's website along with their social media and see what others are saying.  Not only does your pet get a personalized diet, but it is delivered right to your front door.  Petbrosia is offering a special code to my neighbors for $10 off your first purchase of Petbrosia.  Just enter the code: BREQ10 when ordering.

Petbrosia also does cat food, so all you cat lovers need to visit their site too!

One neighbors will receive a FREE 3 lb box of either dog or cat Salmon Petbrosia.  Thanks for stopping by!  Now enter and share this giveaway!

Start Thinking School Time with Locker Lookz



Hey neighbors!

I feel like summer just arrived and already it is time to start talking school.  Amazing!  Somehow, this year is just flying by.  Anyway I want to tell all of you about Locker Lookz.  If you remember we covered Locker Lookz last year also, but they have come out with some new colors!  Wait until you see them!

Locker Lookz gives your student the ability to make their locker personal without damaging or leaving any residue behind.  They have wall paper, that attaches with magnets, furry rugs for the bottom of the locker, mirrors, organizer bins, and photo frames.  If you homeschool and don't have a locker, these can still be used at a desk, vanity, or any other area your child might like to personalize for themselves.



Since we homeschool, my daughters personalized a space for themselves.  They have a shelf in their room that they used to put out their Locker Lookz.


They haven't added a new picture to the frame yet, but I have a feeling it will be a picture of all four girls.  Your child can easily add a photo of the family or some best friends.


The little organizer pocket is perfect for pencils, pens, and any other little items.  Paperclips, a stapler or scissors would also fit.  The other item that they really like is the wipe-off message board.  Perfect for leaving reminders or assignment deadlines.


Locker Lookz has the option that allows your child to design their locker right on their site.  You can mix and match until you find just the look your child likes.   Next step is to find a store nearby that carries the Locker Lookz, or order online.

Be sure to follow Locker Lookz on their social media pages to stay updated on their new designs!

Take time to visit Hope's Cafe to see another style of the Locker Lookz.  Then be sure to enter our giveaway.  One winner will receive 1 Wallpaper, 1 rug and 3 accessories from Locker Lookz.

Disclosure:I received no monetary compensation for this post.  I did receive product for review purposes.  All quotes in red

My Son's TKD Birthday Party



Hey neighbors!

One of my sons turned 19 and his sisters decided to have a TKD (Tae Kwon Do) themed Birthday Party.  These two can come up with some amazing ideas.  They decorated, planned themed food and games and then to top it off, made him open gifts with his sparring gloves on.

 For decorations they put up black and white streamer.  And made the balloons look like ninjas.  Yes, we know ninjas are not exactly representative of TKD, but it was the best idea they could come up with.



For games, we went out back and had a knife throwing contest.  They like to practice with the throwing knives anyway, but this time everyone had a try.  It is not as easy as people make it look.  The second game was Master Says.  Sort of like Simon Says, the only problem being they are older now and much harder to trick.


After the games we came in to have some snacks.  They made Broken Board Cheese Slices.


Pack a Punch Punch!





The sandwiches were cut to look like a Shurikin.  A type of throwing star.  They called the pretzels Bo Staffs.








After opening gifts he had his cake.  They designed it to look like a Gi with a orange belt with a green stripe.  That is his present rank.





We all had a great time!  My daughters are really enjoying planning themed birthday parties this year.

Thanks for stopping in.  See you soon!
