Going to the Beach!

 When I think about going to the beach my vision usually looks like the picture to my left. Desolate beach, white sand peace, quiet. The truth is far different. when I go to the beach I usually drag the boys all with me. I love the beach. I love the sand the salt water the ocean all of it. The boys however like the pool better.  As a consequence I usually end up packing and carrying everything.

So over the years I have gotten creative.First thing I always think of when we go to the beach is sun screen. I

Fashion Friday -Famous Footwear

 School starts in a month. I have to get the boys new shoes for school so I head over to Famous Footwear, because they have amazing deals on all the brands we love, and guess what I see? I see that Famous Footwear, is opening a new store  in Ridgecrest, California on July 16. The opening marks the 35th location in the Los Angeles market.

To celebrate the opening, they will be hosting a grand opening event on July 26 which will include a live DJ, drawings for shoppers to win complimentary pairs of shoes, one-day special promotions and a local shoe artist who will be customizing shoes for

Foodie Friday- Boldo

 I am a lover of food as you all well know. I am also very interested in whole foods fresh from the farm to my table. I like to know where my food came from. It sounds kind of weird since most of us don't ask or know past buying it at your grocery store. Once you taste fresh farm to table you will understand the difference. And now Orange County has a brand new place to go and get fresh local farm to table food. Boldo.

Where might you ask is Boldo. Boldo is located at 305-105 E 4th Street in Santa Ana, CA. I was so shocked and pleased to see the re gentrifying of this area has extended

ASUS MeMO Tablet- Review

 It is back to school time. I know it is crazy to be saying that in the middle of July but the truth is that Airborne and the Tech Monkey go back to school August 11th. So we are shopping and figuring out what everyone needs to go back to school. Unlike when I went to school this conversation involves what kind of tablet or laptop each kid needs.

Once that conversation starts I hear Agent daddy ask which forgotten piece of technology he will be inheriting next. The truth is there are many different kinds of tablets and laptops out there and each one has good and bad points. I will be talking today about the ASUS MeMO HD 7. I want to talk about this one because it has an incredible price point ($149 for 16 GB) and I think  the value is there.

$25 Paypal and Vest Giveaway from #GIB and Away We Go Media

It is with our pleasure that Away We Go Media is sponsoring a giveaway on behalf of The Georgia Industry For the Blind.

Real Army of Moms is excited to be working with Away We Go Media and GIB to bring this giveaway to you.

In 1937, the Georgia Legislature passed House Bill No. 114, which established the Georgia Factory for the Blind. In 1982 that name was changed by the legislature to Georgia Industries for the Blind. GIB's first plant opened in 1949, in Bainbridge. Four years later, in 1953, a second plant was opened in Griffin. More than 60 years later, both plants are still vital contributors to their communities and provide job opportunities for persons from throughout the state who are blind. In 2008, GIB opened a third plant in Albany. In 2010, GIB opened its first service site at Robins Air Force Base in Warner Robins. 
The company produces and sells high quality office products including file folders, binders and card guides along with pillows, traffic and job site safety vests including a new line of hunting vests sized to fit adults and children. There is something for everyone to be found here. Georgia Industries for the Blind is set to generate its total operating budget through the sales of its products and services and are now unfunded by state or federal government. GIB is self supportive! 

To highlight the company, its products, and to seek out new customers to the facility, Georgia Industry for the Blind is offering the choice of a youth or child's hunting vest made by its employees to a lucky winner. 

This is a new line from GIB with a complete line of Hunter Safety vests. Their vests are produced from 100% ANSI approved Hi-Visibility safety orange polyester material and offered in several designs including Adult, Youth and Children’s styles with hoods for improved visibility. 

 The flier above shows two photos displayed side by side. On the left, a child is wearing a safety vest without a hood and the photo on the right shows a child with our new hooded safety vest. Which vest would you want your child to wear?

The winner will get a choice of a child or youth size hooded hunting vest. In addition to the hunting vest, Away We Go Media is giving that same lucky winner $25 Paypal cash. 

Let's build pride and help GIB stay committed to providing employment for visually impaired individuals. All of this is a win for the Georgia Industry for the Blind and for you!

What if You could have a 90 day Transformation in 10 Days?

 My cousin is a trainer. He calls me up the other day and says " Hey Cuz, What would you say to a 90 day transformation in just 10 days?'

I was like " Are you smoking weed?"

He says " I know you are all into organic whole real foods and you are a wanting to be healthy and loose some weight. What if I told you I could get you 90 day results in 10 days?" He is a brave man mentioning weight loss to a woman. But he had my interest.

"This isn't some cabbage diet or working out with you for 8 hours a day is it? Because I have to drive carpool and write the blog and stuff."

Fast Fun and Eco Friendly-ecoATM

I don't know about you but we are tech junkies. Every time a new gadget comes out, we are salivating and waiting in line. The problem with that is all the forgotten and discarded technology that ends up filling drawers and closets. I am always sure that someone in the family will be able to use it later so I should not give it away. As a result I have two iPod nanos in my desk drawer, a kids tablet under the TV with the
