Keep Your Car Running with Pennzoil

FFR Pennzoil Walmart Auto Center

Our 2006 Chevy Malibu was long overdue for an oil change so we took it to Walmart’s Auto Center. We had some other shopping to do so it was so easy and convenient to drop the car off, then go about our other shopping. The Auto Center only uses Pennzoil. We asked for Conventional Motor Oil, which is a traditional oil base, with Active Cleaning Agents to continuously prevent dirt and contaminants from creating performance-robbing deposits. We usually get the oil changed when the car tells us it needs to be done. Nice little feature that saves us from having to remember when our last oil change was!

Pennzoil is known to help clean out sludge lesser oils leave behind. It is designed for protection and may enable you to drive an extra 550 miles per year vs. a dirty engine (a dirty engine is NOT good!). Regular oil changes keep your car running smoothly and prevents bad things from happening…like a clogged, dirty engine. Our car is much happier after we get the oil changed!

A funny thing happened to me while we were shopping. When my husband went to get a cart I waited in the front entry way (for some reason hubby did not grab a cart at the Auto Center and we walked all the way around to the front entrance!?). Well, I started walking along side him only to discover the man I was walking with was NOT my husband! Can you say embarrassing? When I looked over at the man I said a quiet, “Oh!” I don’t think he realized what I did because he simply said, “Excuse me” and went on his merry way. Meanwhile, I look back at my husband and asked, “Did you see that?” He said he did and then spreads his arms and goes, “What are you doing walking with another man?” And proceeded to tease me. Probably will not live this one down!

FFR Pennzoil Shopping Trip

After that embarrassing moment, we were able to get a few groceries and items for our upcoming trip. It was nice to have another the oil change and shopping checked off our to-do list.

If you change your own oil, here is a Pennzoil coupon to use on your next purchase, which is available for a limited time.

How often do you get your car’s oil changed?

Christmas at Rose Hill Farm

FFR image for posts

Christmas at Rose Hill Farm


Christmas at Rose Hill Farm

Christmas at Rose Hill Farm is more of a back story of some of the older characters from Suzanne Woods Fisher’s other books, The Search and The Stoney Ridge series. You can read my reviews of book one, two and three at the corresponding links.

I thought this book was a sweet love story, but with a twist. It was fairly easy to guess who the character George was from his responses, though I do not remember him from The Search by Suzanne Woods Fisher!

I LOVED learning more about the history of roses. Thanks to my husband, roses are my favorite flower. I had a rose bush at our townhouse and had been told how hard they were to grow, but that particular one flourished. I was sad to leave it. I tried bringing slips here to our new home but they did not survive. Sniff. Sniff.

The idea of waiting for the rose to open before revealing its identity added intrigue to the story for me. I really wanted to know what type of rose they had on their hands!

This book was really all about relationships, dealing with past misunderstandings, and as usual, I really enjoyed reading Suzanne’s book. I found that it was sad, funny and very interesting, as I loved learning more about roses. I honestly do not have any negative thing to say. If you have a loved one who loves to read, this would be a wonderful Christmas book to gift them!

You can join bestselling, award-winning author Suzanne Woods Fisher for an Amish Christmas to remember at any major book store near you that stocks Revell Books.

Mission Belt Review

“Product was provided for this post as part of an opportunity with The Brand Connection.“

 

Mission Belt Review

belt 4

My husband is always having problems finding a belt that fits him comfortably.  Well, with Mission Belt Co., no need to look any further!  My husband has been wearing his Mission Belt to work daily and he loves it.  It’s easy to use and he is able to adjust the belt when needed.  We received the Mission Belt “Iron” in black leather.  The silver tone of the buckle is given a vintage look to it and yes it’s actually leather!  The buckle is heavy yet not intrusive.

belt 6

The Mission Belt Co. has a special belt with no holes. The underside of the belt has these rivet looking teeth that when you slide the belt it clicks into spot. Normal belt holes are spaced at 1 inch apart, the Mission Belt adjusts to ¼ inch.  When it’s time to take off the belt, you just push the release lever up and slide the belt out of the buckle.  Easy right!?

Minnie Mouse Costume Review

FFR image for posts

It’s never too early to start thinking about Halloween costumes!  Wholesale Halloween Costumes has a huge line of costumes for every budget and person in your family.

Minnie 1

We received this adorable Minnie Mouse Costume for my daughter (About Minni Mouse). The package came with the dress and ears.  The costume is mostly polyester material. The headband does not have teeth on it, making it easy on your child’s head (I wore the headband myself for about a half hour and it didn’t hurt my head, either).

minnie 2

My daughter looks delightful and ready to have fun in this Queen of Disney costume.  She said it was comfortable and it fit her well.  The costume was easy to put on and has Velcro on the back by her neck.

You can order this costume or choose from many that Wholesale Halloween Costumes offers!

Reverie Sweet Slumber Pillow Review

FFR image for posts

 

Reverie Pillow

My husband said this is the best pillow he has every slept on!

The Sweet Slumber Pillow is 100% cotton quilted with a removable cover that is machine washable. Guess what’s in the pillow?  Nope, not feathers, it is shredded natural rubber.  Cool, right?  This fabulous pillow is hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial and dust mite resistant. Those are great assets in a pillow.

My husband claimed this pillow the second it came in the door. He has never slept well nor found a pillow that is comfortable with him.  He tends to wake up with a headache.  Since this Sweet Slumber Pillow arrived he has had minimal headaches in the morning and is sleeping much better.

Reverie also has a mattresses and linens. You can order yours today!  Click here to be taken to Reverie’s website.

**If you have an allergy to latex, I would advise against this pillow**

Matilda Jane Clothing – Ode to Shoes

FFR image for posts

It’s that time of year again where we are thinking about summer clothes and switching out wardrobes, but if your weather is anything like the Chicagoland you may have experience snow showers early this morning! So we were digging out the winter clothes again. I know I wore my woolly socks and ear muff headband!

FFR Matilda Jane Dress_3

My youngest daughter received a cute little dress from Matilda Jane Clothing, called Ode to Shoes Tank Dress (Retail $50). It’s a brightly colored tank dress that works perfectly with a pair of leggings.

I really like Matilda Jane clothing. It’s well made, the fabric is thick, not thin cheap stuff. It arrives in a neat package making the receiver feel special from the onset.

This dress is perfect for casual wear or even for church. I would have preferred it be longer but realize longer length dresses are hard to find these days.

Kohl’s Spring Fashion #SpringAtKohls

I participated in a campaign for Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Kohl’s. I received a gift card as a thank you for participating.

It’s finally spring and we are all excited for the warmer weather and the lighter clothing, right? I desperately need to update my wardrobe! Kohl’s Spring Fashion Hangout provides great tips on what trends to be in the “know” about right now. From the color pink to dresses and roll-cuffed denim they share it all! I’m a huge fan of pink and find myself wearing pink nail polish and lipstick so I am completely ready for this year’s spring fashion! This season it will be easy to take Kohl’s’ advice and wear pink since I am already a fan of the color! It has been a while since I bought clothing so I am excited to go shopping at Kohl’s for some new spring fashion wear, particularly a fit and flare dress or skirt!

Printed Maxi Dress #SpringAtKohl's

Watch the Kohl’s Spring Fashion Hangout and tell me what trends will you be wearing this season?

RUUM Kids Spring Fashion

FFR image for posts

Spring is here and with that means a change of wardrobe…that is if the temperatures start increasing, which is slowly happening here in the Chicago area! I love being able to dress our kids in nice clothes for when we go out to church, to Grandma’s or some place special. RUUM Kids spring fashion is here and our almost eight year old daughter is wearing a sweet little heart dress (would have been great for Valentine’s Day too!) in the collage below:

FFR RUUM Kids Dress Collage

It needs a little sweater for the cold start to spring we are experiencing. It is very lightweight and sheer, but does not need a slip as it has a built in lining.

RUUM Kid's Dressy Sweater

I think my daughter would also have liked this jeweled skater dress:

RUUM Kid's Jeweled Skater Dress

This embroidered flower dress is definitely a spring choice, perhaps for Easter:

RUUM Kid's Embroidered Flower Dress

For the boys there are also some snazzy looking spring fashion outfits, like this vintage stripe polo shirt coupled with a pair of khakis or chino pants:

RUUM Kid's Vintage Stripe Polo

RUUM Kid's Chino Pant

One of our son’s loves a dress jacket so I had to include this dressy blazer:

RUUM Kid's Dressy Blazer

Then there’s always the nice dress shirt, which is my oldest son’s preference:

RUUM Kid's Bright Stripe Shirt

What does your child’s spring fashion look like?

Right now RUUM Kid’s has a 30% off sale on all their spring fashion items! Check it out!
