Are You Visiting PA?

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of PA Tourism for SocialSpark . All opinions are 100% mine. Hello Neighbors, How is everyone today?  We have gotten alot of work done today.  We have been trying to really clean and organize the house.  Especially since we have several  roadtrips  coming up. Three of them next month.  Speaking of roadtrips... have you ever taken a road trip to PA?  We have!  We have some friends there and we used to visit them alot!  We would go to yard-sales, swimming, bowling, Root's (a local Farmer's Market, and an Amusment Park, etc.  It was alot of fun!   I recently found a really neat roadtrip planner.  It is called the Roadtrip-a-Matic.  Great for  pa-roadtrips .  When you use the Roadtrip-a-Matic they do the planning and you do the packing!  So pick yours and go! When you are planning a roadtrip/vacation what is the hardest part for you?  My Dad always plans where we are stayin

Make Sure You Are Road Trip Ready With Pringles!

Hello Neighbors! We just came in from playing a couple of games of volleyball with some friends... in the rain!  Yes, it started pouring but no one wanted to go in so we played in the rain.  We ended up a little muddy, really wet, but we had alot of fun. All of my Neighbors know that on a road trip people start to get hungry.  And when people get hungry they start to get cranky!  Not anyone in our family of course! ;)  We always try to have some snacks with us when we are taking a trip and one of our favorites is Pringles!  They are perfect for traveling!  With the cans that fit inside most cup holders they work great.  You can "put the brakes on car cravings" by bringing along some of your favorite flavors.  Our problem is with 8 people in the family, Pringles disappear fast.  Some people, I won't name them here, try to hide a can all for themselves!  It usually doesn't work though! BBQ! My favorite is the Original Pringles... My Favorite ~ Origin

Puzzle Books Perfect Summer Fun!

Hi Neighbors! All of you know we recently took a trip to Chicago.  While there the younger girls and I spent time in the evenings working puzzles together.  Great family time!  We received The Complete Idiots Guide to Picture Puzzles Vol. 2, Puzzle Barron's Sudoku, Puzzle Barron's Logic Puzzles Vol. 2.  We had so much fun.  Also when one of their friends came over they spent several hours working on the puzzle books. So, let's begin with The Complete Idiot's Guide to Picture Puzzles ($10.95).  This one has several skill levels.  You start off with easy and then work your way to advanced.  We love the ones where you have to decide what has been changed in the picture.  Believe me it is not as easy as you would think in the advanced.  We would get all but one or two and then have to sit there staring at the pictures trying to find the last ones.  Yes, there are answers in the back!  Did we have to use them?  I'll admit it, we did resort to the answers a co

Geigerrig Rig 500 Hydration Pack Father's Day Gift!

Hey Neighbors! Look at this one!  Geigerrig sent us a Rig 500 Hydration Pack .  Does your husband/father spend time outside gardening, participating in sports, jogging, etc.  What he needs for Father's Day is a Hydration Pack.  Check out these great packs from Geigerrig.  My husband really likes this.  Unfortunately for this review the weather took awhile to work with us on this one.  I wanted to show the pack actually being used and we had to wait for the weather to cooperate.  Anyway here we go! Here and below are a couple of awards Geigerrig has been awarded. Let me start with some information from Geigerrig itself: In building the GEIGERRIG product, we did a lot of work to analyze the various views and attitudes that the general consumer had about hydration packs.  My experience in the Marine Corps was always in the back of my mind, but I didn’t know how those experiences would translate when it came to civilian, recreation use of a hydration pack.  What

Kinivo Wireless Mini Speaker Father's Day Event #9

Hi Neighbors! I am really excited about this product as a Father's Day gift!  Since we travel quite a bit, we always take our laptops, iPods, etc. with us. My husband likes to share Facebook videos, sermons and such with the family.  The only problem is, with eight of us sometimes the volume is not loud enough.  I hate carrying large speakers on a trip, so the Kinivo Wireless Mini Speaker with Bluetooth is perfect!  The Kinivo BTX 110 is small.  It fits in the palm of your hand.  You just twist the top to expand and collapse the resonator.  A small drawstring bag is included to carry your speaker.  Perfect to just drop in your purse or even your pocket and head out.  Your controls are on the sides of the speaker.  On/Off,  Volume Control, and even for answering calls.  My husband could use this feature.  The volume on his phone is not the best. I just used the USB cord to hook the speaker up to my computer to charge it.  There is a small light that is red when charging
