"Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania"

disclaimer:  I received the following book for free from Blogging For Books in exchange for my honest opinions.  All opinions remain my own.

"Dead Wake:  The Last Crossing of the Lusitania"



by Erik Larson

  So we all know of the tragedy of the Titanic, but did you ever hear of the Lusitania?  If the name sounds familiar then you probably remember hearing that it was a ship that had been torpedoed during World War I.  But did you know that it too was a passenger ship, one that was fully loaded with men, women, and children all on their way to England?  Well that is what Erik Larson sets out to tell us about in this book.

  Passengers knew of the danger of submarines before even setting out for the journey but many believed that a ship as big as the Lusitania would have nothing to fear.  Besides, they believed that once they reached the more dangerous waters that they would be being escorted with military ships from England to protect them.  Little did they know that there would be no such escort and that fate would bring them to the right place at the wrong time that fateful May day. 

  The English had acquired code books of the German's and had organized a group of specialists to work on deciphering them in a room called "Room 40".  The specialists had deciphered multiple messages regarding submarine activity in the general area that the Lusitania was headed but yet no escort was sent.  They had actually been deciphering messages from the submarine that would in a weeks time be the one who would sink the Lusitania with just one torpedo, the submarine known as U-20.

  Captain Turner had a couple delays at the beginning of his voyage that could have affected the outcome, along with some fog which if it had stayed for just a half hour longer may also have saved so many lives. 

  Learn about the folks who perished and those who were saved, find out how just one submarine torpedo took down this mighty ship, how will President Wilson respond to the disaster.  Find out all of this and more in "Dead Wake:  The Last Crossing of the Lusitania"

  Mommy in PA:  This was one of those reviews where I could have just typed and typed until my fingers fell off.  So much information, but in a very enjoyable format.  I never knew history could be so fun. 

  You can tell that Mr. Larson spent a lot of time researching personal artifacts, letters, books, etc. to get the feeling that you really know these passengers.  His way of writing really puts you on that deck with those folks the very second they see the torpedo coming through the water.  You can feel the fear they had while they are trying to decide whether to attempt to get on a life boat or wait it out to see if she will stay afloat.  You even feel their sadness when the survivors are searching for their loved ones in the make-shift morgues. 

  I was amazed by the fact that there were so many who didn't know how to even put on their life vests properly (what a terrible way to die), it was also shocking that there were so many people who were never claimed by their loved ones.  And the haunting part about others that were never found.

  It's sad to know that we learned so much about the Titanic disaster but so little about the Lusitania.  So many lives lost and in the case of the Lusitania there were ways it could have been avoided.
  This is the type of book that makes you want to go out and do some more research yourself.  He cites so many wonderful sources that he used to get his information, it is totally amazing the amount of research he did and all the places he had to go to do so. 

  There is just so much information in this book that I have no idea what to touch on next so I will just leave the reading to you, you will not be disappointed.

Find out More:
Here is what Mommy in GA and Mommy in PA thought of the various cleaning cloths:

Microfiber All Purpose Cloths with Strips

Mommy in GA: These are fantastic!!!  I used mine everywhere from the kitchen (all surfaces, especially great for stubborn messes in the fridge or on the floor!!) to the worries the bathroom has its very own! They work for dusting in a pinch too! Best part is you use them, wash the, repeat!!!!!

Mommy in PA:  I LOVE these ones!  I use them for anything and everything.  The strips really help make it easier to clean up stuck on dirt.  I've used these for cleaning my stovetop, dusting, washing windows, etc.  They are a great multi-purpose cleaning cloth.

Microfiber All Purpose Cloths with Activated Carbon

Mommy in GA: These work better for dusting lol! These would be great for any surface that is more likely to scratch :)

Mommy in PA:  These too were great!  I used these inside my house for dusting and outside for buffing the wax off of our truck.  It was great because they are super soft so you don't have to worry about them scratching anything and they clean up wonderfully.

Microfiber Sponge Cloths

Mommy in GA:  These I actually didn't use for cleaning I used these to collect water from my wet dishes as a drying towel.... not my best idea :(  Haha the brain was on delay that day.

Mommy in PA:  I just really don't care for the feel of these ones.  I don't know about all of you but I have a hard time cleaning with something if I can't stand the way it feels in my hand.

Antibacterial Viscose Cloths

Mommy in GA: These I only used in the kitchen and I also used one in my bathroom, great for countertops and door knobs :)

Mommy in PA:  These were ok for wiping down my countertops and the added antibacterial factor just made me feel better about using them instead of a regular cloth. 

Microfiber Window Cloths

Mommy in GA: I am not a fan of these ones they do have a strange feeling and also streaked the bathroom mirror.  They might be good for cleaning the outside windows??? Maybe I will try that the weather is starting to get nice here :)

Mommy in PA:  My husband tried these on our truck windows and he did not like them.  They didn't really do anything but smear the water around.  I personally just haven't used them for anything because they feel weird.

"Duck Commander Devotions for Kids"

disclaimer:  I received the following book for free from Booklook Bloggers in exchange for my honest opinions.  All opinions remain my own.
"Duck Commander Devotions for Kids"

by Korie Robertson & Chrys Howard
illustrated by Holli Conger
  If you are looking for a fun, new way to get your kids involved religion then this book is right up your alley.
  Just read a page a day to your kiddos to instill values, encourage individuality, remind them that they are loved, etc.  Every day is a new lesson to be learned or reinforced. 
  Each page (devotion) includes a scripture, a prayer, a personal story about the Robertson family, and Duck Commander applications which encourage the children to use what they've learned that day.
  Mommy in PA:  This book is not only very useful but also very beautiful.  The first thing I noticed was the wonderful illustrations.  This in itself was enough to make me want to keep picking up the book : )
  I love how they incorporate their own life stories into the pages so that it is easier to explain to your kids what the scriptures mean.  Also it is way more exciting than how we typically try to teach our kids about the Bible.  The stories are also enough to keep even the adults interested.
  Also this book isn't just for younger kids either.  I found that a lot of the information in the pages pertained to my teenager as well.  I just read those sections aloud and waited for the glaring looks from across the : ) 
  I think that this book is best used by reading one page each day and focusing on one lesson at a time.  That gives the kids a whole day to incorporate what they've learned before moving on to something new. 

They even include a ribbon bookmark to keep track of where you are, how cool is that ?!?!
  This would be a great gift for any little "Duck Commander" fans out there : )

"Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb"

disclaimer:  I received the following items from Vocalpoint in exchange for my honest opinions.  All opinions remain my own.
"Night at the Museum:  Secret of the Tomb"
  Join the all familiar cast from the others along with a few new friends (a Neanderthal who believes that Larry is his father, a new security guard in London, and the pharaoh prince's parents) to save the magic that brings the museum to life. 
  In this movie we find out what makes the golden tablet so special and who is the one who actually discovered it in Egypt in the first place.  Will Larry and the characters from the museum figure things out in time before the museum goes to sleep forever?  You will just have to watch and see.
  Mommy in PA:  Vocalpoint not only sent us the movie to watch but also two bags of popcorn and the little popcorn baggies like they use at some theatres.  It was an awesome touch to make this one of the best movie nights ever. 
  They also included a link to print out some character props to use, I got to be Teddy, my son was Larry, and my daughter was Augustus.  We had a lot of fun dressing up : ) 
  We've been wanting to see this movie for awhile now but missed it when it was in the theatre.  We were hoping that it would be as good as the other two and believe us it totally was.  Laugh, oh my did we laugh : )  We especially like the new character (the Neanderthal who believes that Larry is his father) he was hilarious!!!
  If you haven't seen it already then you should really get out there and get a copy so that you too can have an awesome family movie night : )  #VPMovieNight

"This is What You Just Put in Your Mouth?"

disclaimer:  I received the following book for free from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest opinions.  All opinions remain my own.
  "This is What You Just Put in Your Mouth?"
From Eggnog to Beef Jerky, the Surprising Secrets of What's Inside Everyday Products
By Patrick Di Justo
  Have you ever wondered what makes up all of those things that we eat everyday.  Well of course, we can look at the list of ingredients, but does that really tell you what is in there?  Not really.
  Patrick Di Justo was on a mission to find out exactly what makes up all of these everyday edible products including Red Bull, Slim Jim, Easy Cheese, coffee, etc.  Not only that but he also looks into what makes up these other everyday non-edible products like gasoline, play-doh, Tide Pods, Febreze, and Flu shots. 
  Mommy in PA:  I just want to start out saying that this publication really isn't as scary as I thought it would be.  I really don't think many of you would stop using most of these products based on just what the ingredients are : )  It is really just a very well researched book about things we just didn't realize are used on a daily basis to make things that we consume more colorful, flavorful, or help them keep a longer shelf life.
  I also learned things about products that I probably never would have taken the time to try to find myself.  Example, Easy Cheese really does have cheese in it LOL, there is fat in some fabric softeners, and play-doh comes in 43 colors (who knew?). 
  There are also a lot of interesting facts in the book about the ingredients themselves, information about the companies, information about the different things on the food labels and what they mean, etc. 
  All in all I really did like this book but it isn't one to sit and read cover to cover.  It's the type where you pick it up from time to time to read a section or two and then leave it sit for awhile.  A great coffee table appropriate with the coffee cup on the cover and all : )

Paper House Puzzles

disclaimer:  We received the products below for free in exchange for our honest opinions.  All opinions remain our own.
Paper House Puzzles

  Are you looking for a unique gift idea that would work well for a child or an adult.  How about a nice gift you can give to the entire family?
  Paper House Puzzles aren't just ordinary puzzles.  These puzzles offer a unique challenge for children and adults alike.  Not only are the puzzles shaped like the subject but then there are actual pieces that are shaped like that too. 
  Mommy in GA and mommy in PA each received a sampling of these puzzles to review and here are our thoughts:
  Mommy in GA: These are GREAT for family fun quality time!!!  They are better quality than your average puzzle :)

The kids' had a blast and didn't lose interest in the middle of it like they sometimes do when we do stuff lol.

I love that the puzzle itself is a replica of the item like the flip flop is shaped like a flip flop when you put it together!!!
  Mommy in PA:  We received the Baseball Glove, the Butterflies, and the Flip Flops.  I had my son help me choose which one we were going to make first...he picked the Butterflies : ) 
  Now right away we realized that it's not just the shapes of the puzzles and pieces that make Paper House Puzzles unique.  They also have the best box design that I have seen for puzzles yet.  As you can see in the photo below the box actually folds in at the end instead of just having the cover come off like regular puzzles do (and no more paper shreds lying in the puzzle pieces because you had to cut the lid off with a knife).  Also note the extra copy of the finished puzzle that is provided.  It is so much easier than having to pass around the box so everyone can see : )
  The puzzle itself is great quality, sturdy pieces, no paper tearing.  We had a blast making it too.  Talk about a challenge.  We actually ended up separating out the pieces for each individual butterfly as that seemed to be the easiest way to do it.  We worked on it off and on for a whole weekend, what a fun family project : )
So if you are puzzle lovers like we are and you're looking for more of a challenge you should definitely check out Paper House Puzzles : )

"Your Quantum Breakthrough Code"

disclaimer:  I received the following book for free from Hay House, Inc. in exchange for my honest opinions.  All opinions remain my own.
"Your Quantum Breakthrough Code:  The Simple Technique That Brings Everlasting Joy and Success"
by Sandra Anne Taylor
  If you are looking for something more to add to your positive thinking routine then trying the techniques in Sandra's book is definitely something to look into. 
  Sandra shows you how to use a simple technique involving chakras to decode and code certain messages into our minds.  She primarily focuses on using the chakra located in the middle of the forehead (also known as the third eye).  The technique itself is super simple and is something that anyone can do in just a few minutes a day, but according to Sandra the results are amazing.
  Decoding is simply removing a negative response and coding is simply enforcing a positive response in its place. 
  Sandra gives a lot of examples about how this decoding and coding technique has helped many people change how they react to a lot of different situations.  She even gives techniques for people who cannot do the technique how it is actually supposed to be done due to physical limitations (she thinks of everything).
  The first and most important part of the book is to determine where our weaknesses are whether it be shyness, insecurity, procrastination (mommy in Pa and mommy in Ga both need to work on, boredom, worry, unworthiness, etc. and turn them around and use them to better ourselves.  Often times it is our own hang ups that prevent us from living a more fulfilling life. 
  Sandra also is kind enough to include illustrations depicting how to perform the technique so that it is easy for anyone to accomplish.
  Even though the book itself doesn't focus much on the other chakras, Sandra does include some charts at the back of the book that indicate which chakra works best for each decoding/coding statement.
  Mommy in PA:  What a great book to pick up to add more usefulness to all of my positive thinking techniques! 
  I have to admit the first couple of chapters took me awhile to read due to it having a lot of the same information that I already read elsewhere just written differently.  But once I got to the part about using the chakra and how to decode and code I was hooked : )
  I haven't really took a lot of time to try out the technique due to trying to get this review written but with it only taking a few minutes a day I definitely plan on incorporating it with my other positive thinking techniques like my affirmations to kick it up a notch. 
  I love how Sandra explains how working on just a few decoding/coding messages helps free up other issues due to a lot of them being linked in some way.  This could really make a huge difference for me.  I really can't wait to work on my procrastination one.  Mommy in GA and I are always talking about how great we are at procrastinating : )
  I even learned a new thing or two about being too needy with my affirmations and that it can actually put a block up and prevent things from being able to happen.  Also we have to watch how we envision ourselves, most of us don't even think of how we think of ourselves but this too can put a damper on our progress.  And always try to get over saying things like "I will be happy when..." and embrace being happy now.
  So if you are working on bettering yourself, your life, and your future this is definitely worth looking into. = Great Customer Service!

disclaimer:  I received nothing in exchange for this post.  I am just writing to inform our readers of a company going above and beyond.'s great customer service
  Ok, so I know that this isn't our typical type of post but something happened to me recently that made me want to spread the word about some great customer service. 
  I had received a promotional code from a website for $20 off my purchase from so I decided to use the credit towards making my son some special valentines for his classmates.  We had done this before and they always get rave reviews : )  Well I ordered the valentines so that they would be here in plenty of time for the party and eagerly awaited their arrival. 
  A little over a week before my son's Valentine's Day party I wandered out to the mailbox and there inside was my order with a plastic sleeve wrapped around their normal cardboard mailer.  I saw right away that it was wrapped up by the post office and hurried inside to see what was wrong.  I practically cried as I opened the packaging and realized that my son's valentines had become mutilated, dirty, and not all there (about half of them were totally missing).  Of course, the envelopes were all ok...LOL.
  Well after my initial shock of thinking I'd have to send my son to school with regular store-bought valentines, I called the number that the post office had included in the package about who to contact regarding missing merchandise, etc.  Well that in itself was another disappointment, I didn't get to speak to anyone and found out I needed to know if the package had insurance on it before I could even proceed.
  Not knowing if has insurance on their packages or not I decided to contact customer service.  I just figured I'd maybe get my money back eventually after they were able to file the insurance claim through the postal service.  But lo and behold they took action...a woman contacted me the next day wanting to confirm my order number so that they could get a new shipment sent out to me and that yes, even though it was only a few days until my son's party that they would make it to me by the day before.  Amazing! 
  And guess what?  They did! 
  Moral of the story:  There are a lot of great companies out there that are focused on making sure that their customers are happy...and is one of those companies : )  Thanks!!!!

disclaimer:  We received the product below for free in exchange for our honest opinions.  All opinions remain our own.

  So if you are like us, you are always looking for ways to get your kids more active.  Kids these days just have so many entertainment options that don't involve any real physical activity that sometimes it is hard to get them to participate in healthier options.  Well Flip2BFit is helping families everywhere conquer putting fun back into fitness with their new Flip2BFit Board Game and their Bakari fitness inspired memory game. 

  The Flip2BFit Board Game consists of the game board, 120 playing cards with different exercise activities on them, 4 disclaimer cards, 4 blank cards (to make up your own activities), 4 game pawns, the spinning wheel, directions, and mission statement.

  The game is meant for everyone ages 6 and up and is for 2-4 players.  The object of the game is to have your pawn leave home and be the first person to reach "Springer" at the park.  Depending on which color space you land on will determine which type of exercise you will do.  There are cardio, yoga, stretching, and strength cards - depending on which you get will determine how many spaces you move ahead after completing your exercise.  There are also some special cards that you may end up getting (healthy choices cards, bad food cards, fact/fiction cards, pick it or pass it card, group play cards, and group competition cards).  No matter which card you pick you have to complete the activity to be able to move your pawn closer to the park.

  Bakari is a fitness version of everyone's childhood favorite, Memory.  You get the card mat, 52 activity cards, and a note pad to keep track of your scores. 

  The game is meant for 1-4 players ages 6 and up.  The object of the game is to be the first person to score 500 points.  This game is just like Memory as far as game turns go, if you find a match you keep playing until you don't find a match.  This game kicks it up a notch by requiring the players who find matches to perform the activity on their matching cards to earn points. 
  Another great thing about Flip2BFit is that the creator launched a crowdfunding campaign to help raise funds to create permanent schools for children K1-K3 in Uganda, Africa.  She is also using profits from the sale of the games to help Fitness for Africa (New York based non-profit that helps battle obesity in the states and malnutrition in Africa).


  Mommy in GA:  This game is great for a six person family.  Not your typical board game which my five year old has a tendency to leave in the middle of due to boredom LOL.  This game peaks his interest due to the different activities involved versus the typical roll the dice or spin the spinner and move your game piece.  It kept everyone else well entertained as well.  We had a blast and were able to play several hours in multiple sittings without the kids getting bored with it. 
  Mommy in PA:  My son couldn't wait to play the board game.  He actually did all of the setup except shuffling the cards.  I figured for sure that we'd play for about five minutes and he'd be bored and want to play on the computer but he surprised me...we must have played for almost an hour, no complaining from him at all : ) 
  Another thing I assumed is that the activities would be a little too easy for the adults or a little too hard for the kids but most were equally as challenging for both of us.  My daughter made a comment early on in the game that we looked like idiots doing some of the yoga poses but it wasn't long before she had to join in on some of the activities just to show us she could do them LOL.  We even had our dog, Archie, joining in on the fun.  He loved chasing us when were doing some of the activities that involved being on the floor.  It really is fun for the whole family : )
  The amazing thing is that my son asks me at least two to three times a week if I want to play Flip2BFit, this is going to come in super handy at keeping him active this winter when it is too chilly to play outside.
  The only thing I would recommend with the board game is that it would be awesome if they offered expansion packs of cards, some harder activities and some easier ones so that you could customize the game for your own family. 

 Mommy in PA:   Now onto the Bakari.  The concept is excellent, find the matching pairs, do the activities to get points, first one to 500 points wins...500!?!?  Yes, that's right, they expect you to get to 500 points.  Well the activity cards are only worth up to 30 points at the most so this game could take quite some time to play.  My son and I set it up and started playing but we had only found about half of the matches before I was just done...just couldn't play any longer.  I ended up telling him that he won because he had more points than me.
  I recommend just making your own rules up for this one as far as the points go, either choose a lower number of points or have a set time frame you are willing to play or you could be there for awhile depending on how great your memory is : )
  We love the fact that the card mat is a foldable fabric and the whole game takes up hardly any space on our game shelf...we have tons of games so space can be an issue.

Mommy in GA:  This game was actually better for the girls who are older than my son.  He grew a little restless due to all the repetitiveness of trying to find the matches. 
  All in all we loved the Flip2BFit Games and think these would make excellent additions to any classroom or home.  And every purchase helps kids in need.
