MY TAKE:
Its no lie...I am cheap.  So...if I can get dryer sheets at a fraction of the cost, I will...because afterall....they are all the same, right?  WRONG!!!!!!
I couldn't have been MORE wrong!!
Since using these dryer sheets, my laundry has smelled fresher, even looked fresher and has had no static electricity.  It is CRAZY how great this stuff smells and lingers!  If you aren't a smell person, then maybe this isn't right for you...but if you find the scent that you DO like, this is definitely the way to go!  The day I got these in the mail and opened the box....I remember coming in to the kitchen and thinking, "What did I do?  Did I light a candle?  What smells so good?"  It was THOSE sheets!  They have been in the laundry room for a few days now and I can still smell that sweet smell upstairs!  I love it!  Our towels are old and have that musty smell...because...like I said...I am cheap...the towels may be musty...but they still work!  Anyway...these dryer sheets take that smell COMPLETELY away!  

This is a product I will keep going back to...cheap or not...I will keep buying these dryer sheets!  They really aren't very expensive at all...and the little more that I may pay to get them over my off brand....is so worth it!  TRUST ME!

Guess what???  Nebraska Hockey Mom readers get to have a chance to take one home!!!

Purex No Sort Review and Giveaway!!!

PUREX NO SORT
THE RULES HAVE CHANGED


NEW Purex No Sort for Colors detergent is the latest laundry innovation from the Purex brand designed to simplify your laundry routine.  Purex No Sort for Colors detergent features a breakthrough Anti-Color-Transfer Technology which traps loose dyes in the wash and reduces color bleeding accidents in your mixed color loads leaving your clothes bright and clean.

Packed with innovation but not a miracle worker. 
 Purex No Sort for Colors detergent is packed with innovation, but it can't perform miracles, so please follow these words of advice:  
Wash strongly colored fabrics or new pieces of clothing, especially jeans, separately at least five times before doing a mixed color load with Purex No Sort for Colors detergent.

Traps loose dyes.
Introducing our new Anti-Color Transfer Technology which traps loose dyes in the wash and does not let them settle onto other fabrics.

Reduces color bleeding accidents.
Your typical color bleeding accident occurs when dyes bleed out of fibers and deposit onto your other garments, but our new Anti-Color-Transfer Technology traps loose dyes in the wash, and does not let them settle onto other fabrics.

Purex No Sort for Colors Detergent is NOW available where you shop!


MY TAKE:
I LOVE this!  I have never been one to separate my colors.  I am just too busy to deal with it.  I know...it sounds lazy...but I just like to throw my stuff in and go!  If I have something new, I always wash it separately, but otherwise, my colors and whites are always together.  With that said, I am sure I am not doing my laundry any favors by doing laundry that way, so I was very happy that they came out with this!

It works fantastically.  It smells great...my laundry looks great!  I have NO problem with this product at all.  In fact, it is my new go to detergent!

GUESS WHAT???  
Nebraska Hockey Mom readers have a chance to win their own bottle of this to try it out themselves!!!

Coobie Seamless Bras Review

Seamless Bra Review


What is a Coobie Seamless Bra?
-An Ultra comfortable, supportive bra that provides shape and comfort for everyone who wears one.
-Comes in 3 strapped styles (Scoopneck, V-neck with lace trim and a Scoopneck with lace panel).
-3 strapless styels and 3 fixed strap Comfort Styles (3 sizes).

Will I get a Uniboob??  Or will it squash me?
-ABSOLUTELY NOT!

Where can I wear it?
-ANYWHERE....it can be worn in place of a cami or tank.  
-It won't ride up or get lumpy.  
-Makes for a smoother look.
-More comfortable then regular bras, but dressier and less confining then a sports bra.
-Wear it everyday and as an attractive layer under tops and dresses.
-Great to sleep in and do light exercise.
-Great for post augmentation procedures.
-Perfect for moms to be and nursing moms.
-Great layers piece to cover ones cleavage.
-88% Nylon and 12% Spandex.

Are bras the only thing I can get at the Coobie Store??
-NO WAY!
-Pants
-Tights
-Underwear
-Wraps
-Camisoles
-EVEN GLOVES

As seen in InStyle, Shape, Elle and Ladies HomeJournal magazines!

MY TAKE:
Sorry...no pictures!  :-)

I am VERY picky about my bras.  Why?  I am very small chested....but have a bigger chest....so the small cup sizes that I should be wearing are hard on my back, etc because I feel like they are cutting into my skin.  Basically...they don't fit me around well.  So...I have my favorite brands that don't do that.  In addition...since I am small chested, I like to wear push up bras.  So I am very picky.

I was a little leery about these.  When I saw them on the models in the magazine, they looked fabulous! I knew they wouldn't look like that on me...and they don't....but I DID fall in love with these bras!  They are SO comfortable.  I don't even really know I have a bra on.  It did take a little getting used to because I am used to that thin piece of material going around my back.  These are thicker and much comfier!  They ARE padded....not push up...but they are padded and that is good.  They are a lot like sports bras...but a lot more comfortable and not so squishing!

I can't wait to try out their other products!  I am absolutely sold on these.  Now...if they could make a push up Coobie Bra....I'd be set for life!!!

*I was given no compensation for this post...only a bra to try and give my honest review.*

The Happy's Review!


THE HAPPY'S!!!

Mom's and kids alike have fallen head over heals for The Happy's™, the newest sensation from Cepia, makers of ZhuZhu Pets! The Happy's are an adorable and remarkably real new line of interactive motorized plush pets. From doing tricks for Happy Treats to racing after their Chase & Play ball, The Happy’s really play with you!  #TheHappys




They are SO cute!  My kids have gone gaga over them!  Even the 15 year old boy things they are "so cute!"  We were very excited when we were asked to review and post about them!  We weren't really sure what to expect.  We have Zhu Zhu pets, we have other interactive toys....but The Happy's are a step above the rest!  TRULY!

We had a "The Happy's" party!  We had 8 adults here and 13 kids!  It was a FULL house!  They all played with The Happy's at different times and they even had the opportunity to make their own dog or cat ears!  I was having so much fun though I didn't get as many pictures as I would have liked....but here are a few!!


 The little yellow ball is SO cool!  Once turned on, it rolls around on its own.  The Happy pet follows the ball as if it were playing a game of fetch.  Once it gets the ball, it plays with it until the ball decides to move on....it is so neat!  

There is also a clicker that comes with each pet.  You can click when you want the pet to move towards you or not...similar to training a LIVE pet.  My kids have absolutely loved playing with these pets....more so then any other interactive pet.  I have no doubt that yours will too!




 The kids had a ton of fun playing with them!  Then they made their own ears!  Here is one example of a set that was made!


If you'd like more information, please go to their website at http://www.the-happys.com.  You can also watch these videos below!

SYNOPSIS:

Based on a true story, sports agent JB Bernstein (Jon Hamm) finds that business has changed and things aren’t going well for his career. In a last ditch effort to save his livelihood he concocts a scheme to find baseball’s next great pitching ace. Hoping to find a young cricket pitcher he can turn into a major league baseball star, JB travels to India to produce a reality show competition called “The Million Dollar Arm.” With the help of cantankerous but eagle-eyed retired baseball scout Ray Poitevint (Alan Arkin), he discovers Dinesh (played by Madhur Mittal from “Slumdog Millionaire”) and Rinku (played by Suraj Sharma from “Life of Pi”), two 18-year-old boys who have no idea about playing baseball, yet have a knack for throwing a fastball. Hoping to sign them to major league contracts and make a quick buck, JB brings the boys home to America to train. While the Americans are definitely out of their element in India, the boys, who have never left their rural villages, are equally challenged when they come to the States. As the boys learn the finer points of baseball, JB, with the help of his charming friend Brenda (Lake Bell), learns valuable life lessons about teamwork, commitment and what it means to be a family.
