Top 10 Things My Children Would Miss Most If I Were Abducted By Aliens

Hey Neighbors! Here is a unique opportunity brought to me by Social Moms and Mars Needs Moms. What would my children miss most if I were abducted by aliens. Here are some tings I think they would miss if mom suddenly disappeared without any explanation. 1. They would miss having someone short around to pick on. (And I am talking nice teasing, not being mean.) You know like, "Mom, do you need help reaching the counter?" They love to tease me about being short! Since all but two have outgrown me I get a lot of short jokes! I mean imagine if they suddenly became the shortest person in the house because mom was abducted. Maybe I would get the chance to be the tallest! 2. They would miss having me home school them. You know, when I have to enforce memory work, or that math problems must be done on time. Along with the great field trips that get planned, like zoos, museums, civil war sites, etc. And of course music lessons! They would really miss those! No more guita

Gorton's Seafood Review and Giveaway!

Ahoy Neighbors! Welcome aboard! Beautiful day today! Soon we will be heading back north, but today is short sleeve weather out At the Fence. Glad you were able to stop by and hear all about the Gorton's Seafood we were able to try recently. Now I have to fess up here, I am not a "big" fish fan, but my family is. I personally love shrimp! So, when I was able to get 3 Gorton's products I chose Crunchy Golden Popcorn Shrimp, Garlic Butter Grilled Fillets, and Lemon Herb Crunchy Breaded Fish Fillets. We prepared some of all three so that everyone got what they wanted. With a family of eight we came close to finishing all three in one night! The rest were gone the next day! My daughters and husband shared the Garlic Butter Grilled Fillets. Everyone said they were great! They were nice and moist and tasted delicious according to them. The Lemon Herb Crunchy Breaded Fish Fillets went just as fast! This was my husband's favorite! And of course I had Crunchy Gol

Statements Salon Hair Care Products Review and Giveaway

Hi Neighbors, Great to see you out and about this morning! I wanted to tell you about Statements Salon hair care products. I received two different lines, one the Thicken and the other the Quench. Both are part of the Color Retention System with Strand Guard. Pam Brooks: Pam Brooks, owner of two salons in Cincinnati, Ohio, and a stylist and colorist with 33 years of experience, released a new line of color retention products infused with StrandGuard Complex.

Pravana Shampoo and Conditioner Review and Giveaway

Hello Neighbors, So good to be meeting At the Fence again. I sure have missed it! I have a great new hair product for the Happy Healthy Hair Event- Pravana . I had one of my older daughters (24) try Pravana for me as I did not want to try too many different products at one time. She also had her hair permed at about the same time as mine. She really loved the fragrance. She also said it was one of the few sulfate free shampoos that she did not have to double the amount of shampoo she used to get a good lather. The conditioner went on smooth and left her hair soft and manageable. It really feels soft too! "Pravana's Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner gently cleanse hair, add strength, and provide needed protection. Botanical extracts like jojoba, algae, sunflower and the abroma grandifloriumseed butter infuse dry, depleted hair with vital moisture and shine. Pravana is both Sulfate and Sulfite-Free and cleanses without stripping the hair. It protects hair and color f

Fun Friends Phone and iPod Covers Review and Giveaway!

Hey neighbors, Wait till you see the cute little characters I received. Fun Friends makes the cutest cell phone and iPod covers. My children all want one! I received 3 furry covers for the iPod Classic and 3 gel type covers for the iPod Nano G3. The furry covers are Punky (a really cute pink monkey), Daisy (an adorable cow with a bell), and Sydney (a cuddly Koala bear). Each of these covers has a sturdy clip so you can attach them to a belt loop or purse strap. There is a hole for your charger to plug in. These will work with several other MP3 devices (see description on website). I took pictures of the furry covers with an iPod in them, but not the Nanos as I do not have a Nano. I love sharing products like this with my neighbors At the Fence. The iPod Nano covers are Winnie the Pooh, Eeyore and Tigger. These are sooooo cute! Each one comes with two different color straps with the character's name on them. The cases are made of a rubberized material to provide protect

Apology to all my neighbors!

I just want to apologize for this past week. I have only done one post, and I apologize for that. We have been without internet connection because we were on the road. I tried a restaurant known for having wi-fi and it was such a bad connection that after 15 minutes of waiting for a picture to load, I quit. I finally was able to get the post up the next day, but I still had a hard time getting the pictures to load. So, today I have a good connection and I am going to do a post this afternoon and then schedule a couple more posts just in case. Thanks for your understanding.

Ziploc Snack Containers Review and Giveaway!

Hey Neighbors, Sorry for not getting out At the Fence recently. We have been so busy! I have got to share with you about the Ziploc containers I received. To start with I have the Ziploc Snack bags, 50 count. They are 6 1/2 in by 3 1/4 in. They are the perfect size for 100 calorie snacks. I personally love them because we travel a lot in a shuttle bus, and these are the perfect size to pack little snacks in, that you can pass out to the children throughout the day. You know, snacks like nuts, grapes, cheese chunks, etc. Of course you can also put in the type of snacks my children like to find occasionally; M and M's, chips, etc. I also received their Fresh Portions on the Go Divided Rectangle. The package contains 2 containers with 2 lids. The containers are divided into 3 sections. 1 that is slightly larger than 1/2 of the container, and the left over is divided into one medium size and 1 small size sections. Now, I honestly have to say I could pack an entire lunch fo

Redken Nature's Rescue Line Review and Giveaway!

Hey Neighbors! New Happy Healthy Hair event submission. Here is the second line of Redken that I mentioned in my previous post, Nature's Rescue (this is the newest of Redken's Haircare products). I am so impressed by the quality of Redken products. I had my daughter use the Natures Rescue Line (100% free of paraben, sulfate and silicone). It worked really well! I was just going to use her information because I was so satisfied with the results from the Fresh Curls line, I wasn't going to change. Instead after seeing the results, I went ahead and tried it myself. Now, I don't know which one I like better! My Daughter's hair after using the Nature's Rescue line. (Notice how shiny!) I received the Refreshing Detox Shampoo, Refining Sea Polish, Cooling Deep Conditioner, and Radiant Sea Spray. I began with the shampoo. I love the fragrance! The refreshing Detox Shampoo lathered great and my hair felt clean and soft after rinsing. I then used the Refining S
