Hurricane Golf Tours

disclaimer:  We are receiving a gift card from USFamilyGuide.com in exchange for posting about this deal.  All opinions remain our own.



  Are you looking for something sporty to do with your children this summer?  If so you may be interested in checking out The Hurricane Golf Tours. 
 
  (The following information was provided by USFamilyGuide.com):

   "The Hurricane Tour is comprised of four components: the Junior Tour, the Collegiate Tour, the Amateur Tour, and the Tour Shop (online). Based out of Jacksonville, FL, the Hurricane Tour administers over 150 events all across the country. With three different tours, golfers of any age and skill level are provided an opportunity to play the game.
 
The Hurricane Junior Golf Tour (#HJGT) was founded in 2008 with the intention of providing junior golfers between the ages of 11-18 an opportunity to play exceptional courses in a competitive environment. The tour's vision is to provide superb hospitality and make every event a memorable one. With play open to both males and females, nearly every junior golfer is eligible to participate on the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour. Membership for the HJGT is $89.00 and players receive discounted member pricing at each event. Every Hurricane Junior Golf Tour event is ranked by the National Junior Golf Scoreboard (NJGS) and features a chance for players to earn AJGA stars. The top 3 finishers at each event will earn prizes. For a complete list of Junior Tour tournaments, visit: http://hjgt.bluegolf.com/bluegolf/hjgt14/schedule/index.htm.

The Hurricane Collegiate Golf Tour (#HCGT) was founded in 2011 and is perfect for college-aged golfers looking to perfect their game this summer in competitive tournaments at great venues. Whether you are a collegiate golfer looking to practice during the off-season, a future college golfer looking to prepare for the upcoming season, or a non-college golfer that wants to compete in first-class events, the HCGT is the tour for you! Membership to the tour is absolutely FREE and provides access to all 28 tournaments this summer in 11 different states. Top 3 finishers at each event will earn prizes. For a complete list of Collegiate Tour tournaments, visit: http://collegiate.hurricanetour.com/Event/EventList.aspx.

The Hurricane Amateur Golf Tour (#HAGT) was founded in 2014 with the intention of providing golfers of any age and skill level an opportunity to play exceptional courses in a competitive environment, while raising money to benefit the Hurricane Foundation and other charitable organizations alike. In order to play on the Hurricane Amateur Golf Tour, players must become a member for the low rate of $25. Amateurs (men, women and seniors) will compete in one of 10 flights based on their handicap, gender, and age. Senior Flights are for players that have turned 50 years old by May 17, 2014. Every tournament on the 2014 schedule will have a unique "Major Championship" feel to it. A special feature of the Amateur Tour is the "19th Hole Dinner," where players will have the opportunity to win raffles, giveaways, and silent auctions. The top 3 finishers in every flight will compete for the $2,000 total prize purse regardless of field size at the tournament. The payouts will be in form of gift cards to the Hurricane Tour Shop. For a complete list of Amateur Tour tournaments, visit: http://amateur.hurricanetour.com/Event/EventList.aspx.

Lastly, the online Hurricane Tour Shop was created in 2013 for the purpose of offering golfers of all ages the newest trends in golf apparel, equipment and accessories at PREFERRED PRICING."

Mommy in GA:  okay so we all know I have 3 (VERY dramatic) girls' :)  Y'all would not believe the amount of hair stuff one bathroom can hold for 4 females (and also the amount of hair products that get lost!!!!!!!)!!!  We have bows and headbands and hair ties and Bobbi pins, baby rubber bands, hairspray, hairbrushes, well you all get it we have a LOT of stuff in there!!!  All of that brings us to the reaction I got when we opened the box from cover your hair!!!  

My girls' LITERALLY fought over who got what bow and also whose was cuter!!!  They LOVED the bows and I love that they are the easy clip (no brackets just the easy breezy clip you open it and release the pressure and it holds itself in place)  The colors and varieties are awesome.  I went on the website and I am going to be honest with all of us, I have no idea where to start because we would love to have at LEAST one of everything!!!!!!

Mommy in PA:  My 15 year old daughter received a headband like the one shown here.  She LOVES it!  I didn't even get a chance to take a photo of it before it was swept away to be worn day after day.  She loves how it is really stretchy and actually stays in her hair better than the narrower ones they sell at the store.  I was very impressed at the vast assortment of accessories and how each type comes in a large variety of style choices (from the very plain to the very sparkly for instance).  If you are looking for the perfect hair accessory for any occasion just head over to coveryourhair.com and you should be able to find what you are looking for.  My daughter can't wait to order some of their bandanas now that she is in country gal mode : )

How to Stay Sane in a Crazy World

Disclaimer:  I received this book for free from Hay House USA in exchange for my honest opinions.  All opinions remain my own.
 
"How to Stay Sane in a Crazy World:  A Modern Book of Hours to Soothe the Soul"
By:  Sophia Stuart
 
 
 
  So I bet you are wondering "What exactly is a book of hours?"  A book of hours was given to women of noble birth during the Middle Ages as a devotional object that gave them time to pause for a few moments to become spiritually refreshed.  This book is a modern day version of that and is meant to help us take a few moments to just let the crazy world go.
 
  Sophia Stuart was living a very busy life until she found out she had three tumors in her throat that would need to be removed followed by almost a month of being cooped up in her apartment.  Sophia's book is intended to help her readers realize that sometimes you just have to step back and relax.  Let the world go on without you for awhile and clear the clutter from your mind before it makes you ill.
 
 
  Mommy in PA:  My daughter is always trying to steal my books before I get a chance to read them.  This one she opened up and right away exclaimed "Mom, this is a picture book".  About half an hour later she returned with the book because she said she was done reading it already. 
 
  The book is mostly pictures but it is the soothing message behind the photos that you must focus on...relaxation.  The book is meant to help us stop stressing as it is no good for your health.  Along with the pictures are ideas to help you relax.  Too often we think that if we take time for ourselves to relax, read a book, etc. that we are being selfish but sometimes that time is necessary to keep us from becoming ill.
 
  The photos were taken by Sophia herself from her travels around the world.  There are also some beautiful still life photos taken from when she was stuck in her apartment during her medical leave.  The book is divided into three sections (morning, afternoon, and evening).  Morning is for dreaming, afternoon is for inspiration, and evening is for exhalation.
 
  I can totally imagine finding this book in a doctor's office waiting room or anybody's coffee table.  An easy read but full of clever relaxation ideas that will help us take better care of ourselves. 
 
  There is also an awesome shopping section at the back of the book that contains items/music/movies that Sophia recommends.  Also be sure to check out Sophia's website at teamgloria.com.

Little Passports

 
Product Manufacturer:  Little Passports
Product Use:  Monthly learning tool to teach kids about the United States and the World

Misc:  Refer a friend and get $10 off your subscription. 
Find out More:  www.littlepassports.comfacebook, twitterpinterest, or sign up for their newsletter here.


Mommy in GA:  Little Passports, U.S set,  was a really cool set and I didn't even have to leave the house to get it!!!  It came right to my door....... My 8 year old hung the map on her wall and loves to look at all the places she would like to go.

The kids' had alot of fun getting everything out of the box and especially loved the camera that was included :)

They enjoyed looking at the cool stuff and "planning trips" around the world ( you know packing a bag and pretending to be somewhere else all while playing in their bedrooms!!!!)


Check out this cute suitcase that your child can keep all of their adventure stuff in!!!

Here's everything that came in the first month's kit (this is the world subscription package).

Mommy in PA:  I got this kit for my 8 year old son who wants to be an archaeologist.  I figured the world kit would be perfect for him to learn about all the places he could go.  Unfortunately he showed no interest in the kit at all, except for the map. 

I personally think this is an excellent idea and would work wonderfully as part of a homeschooling curriculum.  I still can't believe my son didn't love it, he does tend to have a love for learning practically anything but I wonder if this kit just seemed like more "homework" to him. 
Little Passports was kind enough to offer one of our readers a free three month subscription of Little Passports of their very own.  For your chance to win just enter via the Rafflecopter form below.  Good Luck Everyone!

Nikki's Magic Wand

disclaimer:  We received the product below for free in exchange for our honest opinions.  All opinions remain our own.
Nikki's Magic Wand


Product Manufacturer:  Nikki's Magic Wand
Product Use:  To get the last little bit out of cosmetic tubes (mascara, lip gloss, etc.)
Product Features:  angled design to reach every nook and cranny, flexible but stiff enough to scoop up the product, easy to clean, and reusable.
Price:  $9.95 for one or sets of 2 starting at $15.
Misc.:  comes in a case so it is easy to take with you.



video courtesy digitalconceptvideo on youtube.


Mommy in GA: I was in my bathroom the other day, so very excited to use my avon mascara and I pulled the wand out but, lo and behold there was no wand!!  The wand was stuck in the mascara tube, NOW WHAT?????? Oh I know I will just use my Nikki's Magic Wand and all will be right with the world, eyelashes all pretty and everything!

This is a really cool product, and this is also a very true story :)  I did not have to return my product or throw it away (THANK GOODNESS cause I LOVE my mascara) because like magic Nikki's Magic Wand was there to save the day.......and my eyelashes!!!



Here you can see the shape of the magic wand.  Notice the angled design : )


It fit in the mascara wand hole with room to spare. 

Mommy in PA:  This is a great product!!!  I don't know how many times I've thrown away lip gloss over the past twenty years or so.  Just imagine how much product we end up tossing just because we can't get it out.  Well not anymore thanks to Nikki and her magic wand : ) 
  It worked perfectly for my mascara.  Totally worth the $9.95 to get the last 10-20 percent of the product left in the tube that you can't normally reach.  This will pay for itself in no time. 
  I also love the fact that it comes in its own handy case.  Not only is it stylish but totally functional.  Great for traveling when you don't have a way to clean it up when you are done, just put it in the case and clean it when you get home.

"Tippy and the Runaway Cloud"

disclaimer:  We received the book below for free in exchange for our honest opinions.  All opinions remain our own.
"Tippy and the Runaway Cloud"
by Theodora Klein-Carroll
  The corn plants are in need of rain.  It is up to Tippy to save the day.  Tippy and his loyal cloud pony, Misty must find Puffy Cloud and bring him back to water the corn plants.  But will Grumpy Lumpy get in the way?  You'll just have to read it to find out.  There are also pictures that your kids can color and cut out to make a mobile of the characters. 
  Here's what Mommy in GA and Mommy in PA's children thought of the book:
  Mommy in GA:My 11 year old decided that she is too big for these stories but, my 9 and 8 year old lisened to it, they thought it was ok BUT my 4 year old LOVED it!!!  He loves trains and cowboys......if you read the story you will get the reference as to why he was so tuned in!!!

I think that this is very cute for your preschool children, it helps explain the need that plants have for water and how they get it in a more simplifies way than what we learn as we get older :)

This was a great little story and the pictures were good, LOVE LOVE LOVE the idea of a mobile in the back for the kids' to have something to play with as well :)

  Mommy in PA:  My 8 year old son was interested in the mobile that you can cut out of the back of the book but he said that the story was more for kids younger than him : )  He did listen to the whole thing though.
  I personally expected a little more educational value out of it but it turned out to be a cute story and I liked the pictures too.  This would be a great bedtime book for when you only have a couple of minutes to read your kiddos a story.  It would be great for the preschool kids : )

Lowe's Build & Grow

disclaimer:  I received nothing in exchange for this post. 
 
  This past Saturday my son got to make the birdhouse at the Lowe's Build & Grow Clinic.  As I mentioned in my previous post, Lowe's does these on a regular basis.  You head over here to pre-register.  Then you print out your form and give it to them at the clinic.  When your child finishes his/her project they show the worker,  who will give them an award for completion along with a badge to attach to their apron.  This is totally free and a great activity for the kiddos.
 
Sorry for the blurry photo : (
 
 
So cute, can't wait to see if any birds decide to move in : )
 
 
 
  On April 12th at 10 AM they will be making a Recycling Truck like the one below.  You can pre-register your children here.

Pinkalicious

disclaimer:  We received the products below for free in exchange for our honest opinions.  All opinions remain our own.
"Pinkalicious"
by Victoria Kann & Elizabeth Kann

  If you are a parent then you will relate to this book completely.  Pinkalicious is a girl who loves, loves, loves pink but sometimes too much pink is even too much for Pinkalicious.  Find out what happens when Pinkalicious wants just one more pink cupcake (sounds so much like the kiddos, doesn't it)...
Just look at all the pretty party supplies they sent us : )  Napkins, plates, lollipops, cupcake wrappers, sprinkles, candy sticks, "Pinkalicious" book, and the "Pinkalicious Cupcake Cookbook"...all pink, of course : )
Mommy in GA:My 8 year old was the first one to read this (more than once).......as SOON as I opened the kit, she is a HUGE pinkalicious fan and has read ALL of the books.  She said that This Pinkalicious was the BEST one she had read!

I read the story to my 9 year old and my 4 year old (my 4 year old is a boy, so he was not that in to it!) My 9 year old said she outgrew Pinkalicious, but really enjoyed this one (probably because her response to everything is , but, can we have a snack?!) 

We also enjoyed the cookbook (AWESOME for when you have three girls! I also have an 11 year old)  They LOVED the sprinkles on everything fom cupcakes to the icecream!!

Oh and for the record the lollipops and candy sticks did not make it until we got the cupcakes made!
Here is what our finished cupcakes looked like in their Pinkalicious wrappers and sprinkles : )

Mommy in PA:  The book reminded me of my son.  He's always asking for one more popsicle, one more gumball, one more, one more, one more LOL.  It is a cute book with a great lesson and beautiful pictures. 
  We had a blast with the cupcake recipe book and the cupcake making supplies.  We ended up making cupcakes for Valentine's Day for my son to take to school this year.  We also sent the teacher a Cupcake Cookbook to share with the kids : )  We did pink cupcakes and chocolate cupcakes for variety and added the sprinkles to both...they turned out very pretty. 


Thanks to "Pinkalicious" two of our readers will win their very own copy of the "Pinkalicious Cupcake Cookbook".  Enter below for your chance to win : )
