You may recall my post a few weeks ago about 5-hour ENERGY's fun 'Yummification' contest where I made up a drink of my own. Well now the winners have been chosen, you can see them further down in this post. I thought it would be fun to try one of the winning drinks myself... so I did. And I loved it. I might try more of the winning drinks later in the week. Bu for now, here is the drink I made using one of the winner's recipes!
 It is simply made by mixing a glass of Decaf Ice Tea and a Pink Lemonade 5-hour ENERGY shot! And is was even more tasty than I thought it would be!. The other winners are below and they can all be found by clicking this link. Enjoy!

Add style AND space to your home with a SANUS TV Mount!

Disclosure: I received a free product for the purposes of this review. All opinions are honest and reflect my own experiences with the product.

If your house is anything like mine, it is full to the brim with odds & ends, furniture, toys, files, keepsakes, and a whole lot of junk that you cannot seem to ever throw out. (I cleaned out our entryway closet the other day and found 8 pair of old work boots! EIGHT! I asked my husband why he did not throw them out. He responded with "I thought I might need them." Ummm, WHY?) Anyway, anything that can save me some space in my house? YES! Please give it to me. That is why I have more than one SANUS TV Mount in my home for Flat TVs. They are the best space savers ever. They are great for homes... would would also be great for kids in college. We all know how small those dorm rooms are.
One of the great things about these SANUS TV Mounts is that you can get one for ANY size TV. You can also get a mount that tilts or a mount that offers full-motion. It will tell you how many pounds it can support, too. Another GREAT reason for the awesome TV mounts is SAFETY. Many children are hurt every year just by simply pulling the TV on top of themselves. That was always a worry of mine when my daughter was younger.
These mounts have step by step guides and instructions. My husband has never had a problem mounting them. They are pretty easy to install. Just make sure you have help. You don't want to try to hold the TV by yourself. I am in love with my SANUS mounts. They save me so much space and I think the TV looks good on the wall.

We still need to adjust it more to get it exactly where we want it, and after all of our remodeling is done we will be moving it anyway. But I love the space that it saves me and the style that it adds to any room. SANUS’ sleek mounting solutions are engineered with top industry technologies and tested to UL2442 standards, guaranteeing both style and safety. SANUS mounts are available at Best Buy, Costco, Target and Walmart stores, as well as local audio and video retailers nationwide. I urge you to check them out today. You can also connect with them on Facebook, Twitter, youtube, Google + and Pinterest. And they also have furniture, speaker stands, accessories and more.

Managing LBL, Light Bladder Leakage, with Poise. #sponsored

Disclosure: Thanks to Poise for sponsoring today's discussion.

I know most people might be embarrassed to discuss LBL, Light Bladder Leakage, but it happens to the best of us. It has been happening to me more and more often ever since I had a child. It started out happening when ever I was sick. Every time that I would cough, I would experience LBL. I was extremely embarrassed at first, but then I discovered Poise Microliners. With Poise, I can feel more confident about going out and not having any issues.

The Turquoise Tower by Travis Simmons - Book Review, Tour & $10 Amazon GiftCard Giveaway! #bvbtours


The Turquoise Tower (The Revenant Wyrd Saga #6) 

The captivating sequel to A Guardian of Shadows.

In the mystical lands of the Great Realms, Angelica, Jovian, and Joya search for their kidnapped sister, Amber. Their quest has led them through many dangers and revelations, but nothing has prepared them for what’s about to come.

A dream reveals what Angelica and Jovian are, but what does it mean for their future? There’s little time to dwell on this, for the chaos dwarves, the scourge of the Realm of Earth, are gathering at the gates of the Guardian’s Keep. The dwarves have the stone Wyrders’ Bane, and they’ve shown they know how to unleash its plague upon all those who wield the magical force of wyrd. With casters neutralized, a mighty blow has been dealt to the allied forces. The dwarves and trolls attack the keep, and the struggle to survive the war in the north is upon them.

Angelica, Jovian, and Joya’s journey is far from easy, but the future looks even bleaker when visions of a gathering darkness in the west and a congregation of angels could mark the beginning of the final war on the Ever After.

About the Author
Travis has been writing since he was 14.  He began writing a book called "The Calling of the Two" and while writing that on and off he started uncovering another idea.

"Yes, this is all well and good, but what about before? What happened in the world before these characters came into it?" He always knew there was a "before" and as he started wondering about it he got ideas. At first they were little ideas but as he discovered the names for his characters a whole story about them emerged.
Travis started working on The Revenant Wyrd Saga several years back and he is very happy he did because hearing and documenting Jovian and Angelica's story has been one wild ride for him.  He has also written the Infernal Design series.

He lives in a small town at the base of the Adirondack Mountains and hoofing around his neck of the woods gives him a ton of inspiration for his novels.   He loves research, and speculating on different ideas and theories.

I was so sad that this was the last book of the series. But I was also so thrilled to read it. I have loved this series from the beginning and I still do. This book was excellent. It answered so many questions that I had but also left me wanting more. I will so sorely miss reading about Joya, Jovian and Angelica. There wasn't as much about Amber in the books as there were the others, but I will miss reading about her, too.

I was so glad to finally find out the truth about Jovian and Angelica. But there was no time to think about that for long, as the war with the Dwarves and Trolls was at hand. I don't want to spoil it for those that have not yet read it, either.

This book, like the five before it, was extremely well-written. It was riveting from beginning to end. I was never bored, the story flowed smoothly and I was fully invested in all of the characters. The way that Travis Simmons described all of the scenery and the characters and even the monster like the trolls and dwarves... I felt like I was right there, like I was a part of the story myself. I urge you to check this series out, you will not regret it.

I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.

Eclair goes to Stella's by Michelle Weidenbenner - Book Review, Tour & $25 Giveaway! #Bvbtours


Hi, I’m Éclair and I’m seven. My sister Meggie is two. When mom got sick we had to go live with Stella, my dad’s mom, the one with maroon colored hair. I begged Dad not to make us stay with her because she beat her horse and was going to eat her rooster, but he didn’t believe me. Even after I pretended I was going to barf, he left us with Stella.

So there we were, Meggie and me, on a strange pink farm with a skinny horse, a mean rooster, and Stinky Stella who had a living room filled with dead deer heads.

What would she do to us? Would we end up on her wall too?
