Schwan's Home Delivery Service + discount codes!

disclaimer:  We received a gift card from USFamilyGuide.com in exchange for our honest opinions about the service.  All opinions remain our own.
Schwan's Home Delivery Service
  Back in August we had posted some information and a discount for our readers from Schwan's home delivery service.  You can see that post here.  Well in exchange for that post we were issued a gift card so that we could actually try out the service and let ya'll know what we thought.  Well due to some technical issues we just recently received the gift card. 
 
 
  Gift card in hand, we excitedly started browsing Schwan's website.  We had to split the gift card so we each carefully decided what we wanted to buy and proceeded to attempt checking out mommy in GA's cart first...that's when we hit a snag.  Mommy in GA (even though she lives in a much larger suburb area - compared to mommy in PA's rural setting) was unable to get home delivery via truck at her address which would have cost her almost $15 in shipping...which was over half of her share of the gift card : ( 
 
 
  Mommy in GA decided to just let mommy in PA use the gift card since shipping via truck to her house was going to be less than $2.  Thanks mommy in GA!!!
 
 
 
 
  Mommy in GA: My grandparents' (Mommy in Pa's parents) ALWAYS had Schwan's ice cream cups or other Schwan's ice creams to choose from so this post was a fun chance and brought up some GREAT memories!!!
We were so excited about the Schwan's post only to be super bummed about the shipping costing more than my half of the gift card :(
 

That being said the have a HUGE selection to choose from now at pretty decent prices....If only they were in Ga!!

  Mommy in PA:  My parent's used to order stuff from the Schwan's guy all the time.  I think we tried about every ice cream flavor there was.  I didn't really recall them having such a wide variety of other foods before but that could also just be because I was a kid at the time and all I cared about was the ice cream : )
 
 
 
  I had a really hard time deciding what to try but ended up ordering a package of the Chicken Cordon Bleu, a package of the Seasoned Stuffed Chicken Breast, and a box of the Chocolate Sundae Crunch Bars.  I was able to use a special coupon they had going on for $2 off 2 of the Stuffed Chicken and a $5/$25 discount offer which made my total with delivery and everything only $23.22. 
 
 
 
  Signing up for my account online was super easy and I was impressed by all of the payment options.  You can even order online in advance and pay cash when it shows up : )  I was also impressed at the speed of my delivery (I kinda lucked out I guess).  I placed my order on 10/8 and it showed up on my account that it would be delivered on 10/9 between 11AM-1PM.  
 
 
  The next day at noon the Schwan's guy (Nate) pulled up in front of my house.  In the meantime, I had decided that I would really like some of the vanilla with fudge swirl ice cream cups, so I decided it was worth asking...and he had them in stock on the truck : )  He was very nice and even explained how I would even earn points for my ice cream cup purchase since I had already signed up online.  He had handed me their catalog which has the next delivery date on it and explained how as long as I placed my order by 11 PM the night before that my stuff would be on the truck (how awesome is that?!?!). 
 
 
  I also learned that you don't even have to be home when they deliver your food.  They actually have the option for you to buy a reusable freezer bag for under $5 that you can have the driver place your food in. 
 
 
  So now onto the food likeability test...everyone agreed that the ice cream cups and the sundae bars were delicious.  I made the stuffed chicken breasts for dinner one night and even my daughter who does not like broccoli had some of the ones that I had gotten for myself.  She said they weren't bad but that they use too much broccoli, I on the other hand think they were delicious except I wish that they had a crunchier coating on the outside (more like the Cordon Bleu ones).  My husband had the Cordon Bleu ones and he said they were just as good as any other ones he's tried. 
 
 
  To summarize, great selection of products, reasonable prices, you can't beat the home delivery (if available in your area), and the food was tasty.  We will definitely be ordering again soon!
 
 
  Here are some discount codes for our readers so that they too can try out Schwan's Home Delivery Service:
$  5 off $25 Order: JULIEN2
$10 off $50 Order: JULIEN2
$15 off $75 Order: JULIEN15

Essenza Luxury Hand Soap

disclaimer:  I received the products below for free in exchange for my honest opinions.  All opinions remain my own.
 
Essenza Luxury Hand Soap
 
Essenza is a new line of hand soap. The soap is available in various scents such as :French Lavender, Rosemary Mint, Pomegranate Acai, Pear Glace, South Pacific Waters and Mango Agave.
 
 
The Essenza line is available nationwide at Target, select Bed Bath & Beyonds, Walgreens and DrugStore.com . A 12 oz. bottle will run around $3.99 and a 16.9 oz. bottle is around $4.99.  Can you say luxury on a budget?!?!
 
 
The soaps are made from a blend of essential oils, shea butter, and aloe.  They are all free of artificial dyes and colorings, making them great for those with more sensitive skin. 


Mommy in Ga received one of each sample scent and fell in LOVE!!!  I know you all know about my obsession with that fresh burst of smell I love it in my laundry, cleaners and soaps...everywhere really so needless to say I Really LOVE the essenza!! 


I put one in my Kitchen and one in each bathroom in the house!!  I like all of the scents I don't think I have a favorite or a least favorite and I LOVE the bottles as well! They are much more fashionable than the other hand soaps we set around our houses.


I leave mine out all the time and company has come by and had to wash their hands' and told me how much they like the new soap too :)


The kids' are not picky when it comes to soap...they can make a mess with anything ;) but, it is kind of nice to go in the bathroom after my 5 year old had filled the sink and made a bubble palace in there...the palace not being the highlight but it smells FANTASTIC, while I am in there cleaning up his mess!!!!

"Crap Taxidermy"

disclaimer:  I received the following book for free from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest opinions.  All opinions remain my own.
 
Crap Taxidermy
by Kat Su
 
 
 
  "Crap Taxidermy" is a collection of photos compiled by Kat Su from all around the world depicting well...crappy taxidermy. 
 
  Each photo includes a title to the "piece of art" and the items location.  Some of the taxidermy in this book was meant to look silly on purpose while others...not so much. 
 
  Kat Su organizes the book into the chapters as follows:
 
  - Introduction (obviously the introduction into why someone would compile these)
  - It's in the Eyes (Something about these critter's eyes just isn't quite right...think googly eyes.
  - Dynamic Poses (I didn't think their bodies could move like that)
  - Grin & Bear It (Look at them chompers)
  - Improving on Nature (No, I don't think cats have wings...)
  - Strange Anatomy (A good example is the cover of the book)
  - Anthropomorphic (Animals taking on human roles)
  - Get Stuffed (A section dedicated to help you learn how to stuff your own mouse)
 
Mommy in PA:  So if you haven't heard of Kat Su from the popular crappytaxidermy.com Tumblr site than you probably didn't even know that there were people interested in crappy taxidermy.  I know I sure didn't.
 
  So you are probably wondering why I would even be interested in a book like this.  Well in two words...the cover : )
 
  My kids and I agreed that the picture on the cover made the book well worth looking into...and it did not disappoint : )  OMG did we laugh!!!  We had favorites in every section but the two that I recommend folks getting this book to see are the "Creative Beer Bottles" and "Road Kill's Revenge". 
 
  Our favorite section is the Anthropomorphic one.  This is the one where they take the animals and dress them up and use props...a good example is the one where they have a frog sitting in a chair with a pipe and a mug of beer.  He just looks so alive...
 
  That brings me to the part about the book I do not like, the death part...I told the kids that the animals most likely died of natural causes and I truly hope that they did.  I really thought the book would be about wild animals that people normally hunt for food/furs/etc. but there are a few in there that were not of that variety (cat, dog, guinea pig).  I assume that these ones were made up because the pet owners wanted to keep their furry friends around forever. 
 
  All in all I think this book would make a great gift for a taxidermist, or a great coffee table book for the old hunting lodge.

"Willie's Redneck Time Machine"

disclaimer:  I received the following book for free from Tyndale in exchange for my honest opinions.  All opinions remain my own.
 
"Willie's Redneck Time Machine"
By John Luke Robertson
with Travis Thrasher
 
 
  So if you haven't heard of The Robertson's of "Duck Commander" and "Duck Dynasty" fame by now then my best guess is that you must be living under a rock : )
 
  Willie Robertson and his family formed a company called "Duck Commander" that produces duck calls and then later starred on a television series titled "Duck Dynasty" based on their everyday lives running the duck call business. 
 
  Willie's son ,John Luke Robertson, decided to make his own contribution to the family's fame by writing a series of books that allow the readers to be one of the Robertson's and choose how the story will end.  The books in his series are "Willie's Redneck Time Machine", "Phil & the Ghost of Camp Ch-Yo-Ca", "Si in Space", and "Jase & the Deadliest Hunt".
 
  "Willie's Redneck Time Machine" gives you a chance to play the role of Willie.  It is Korie's (your wife) birthday and you are trying to figure out what kind of gift to get her when you realize that there is an outhouse in the middle of the Duck Commander warehouse.  Or is it an outhouse?...it has antennas on it. 
 
  Your son, John Luke shows up while you are inspecting the outhouse.  He steps inside and disappears.  This is where you get to make your first of many decisions in the book.  Some will take you back in time to your high school prom, some will take you to the future, and yet others will take you way, way back in time. 
 
  Mommy in PA:  I was so excited to see that this was a book written by a Robertson.  My family loves watching "Duck Dynasty".  I was even more excited to see that it was a book that allows you to choose which path to take.  I used to read books like these all the time when I was a teenager and was disappointed to see that there aren't really any books made like that for today's youth. 
 
  John Luke did a wonderful job making this story about his father.  It was just like I was watching an episode of "Duck Dynasty" in my head as all the characters were just like they are on the television show.  Same humor and everything : ) 
 
  This was a great book to read with my nine year old.  He had a blast choosing which path to take in the story.  He did a great job choosing the right path for Willie.  And even if you do choose wrong the outcomes are never scary, so perfect for all ages.
 
  I love that it was something we could read over and over again but never get stuck with the same ending.  They do a wonderful job at helping teach the kiddos how to choose between good and bad decisions.  Good ones typically end up with good results, whereas bad ones can make you end up wishing you would have made a better choice. 
 
    I can't wait to pick up another book from this series for my son.  We are thinking of getting "Jase & the Deadliest Hunt" next because my family is big on hunting : )

"Everything That Remains"

disclaimer:  We received the book below for free in exchange for our honest opinions.  All opinions remain our own.
 
 
 
"Everything That Remains" :  A Memoir by the Miniamalists
by Joshua Fields Milburn & Ryan Nicodemus
 
 
 
  As you can tell from the title this is a book about minimalism.  Minimalism is basically people living with only the things they need and not holding onto a bunch of useless possessions. 
 
 
  Joshua and Ryan were both making good money in high paying jobs.  After Joshua's mother passes away and he is getting divorced he realizes that although he had pretty much anything he wanted he just wasn't happy. 
 
 
  Joshua is the first one to attempt the minimalist lifestyle.  He eventually convinces Ryan to try it too.  Now they have their own website TheMinimalists.com where they keep people updated on how their own minimalist lifestyle is going along with tips for others to start their journey to a life with little extra baggage. 
 
 
  The book takes us from the beginning of Joshua's lifestyle change the whole way through to their success on their website and the books that followed.
 
 
  Mommy in GA:  Mommy in GA hasn't had a chance to read the book yet but says she will get around to it once her kids leave the house LOL!  You know how kids are and wanting to save every little thing they've ever owned.  "Don't throw that away...it's my favorite". 
 
 
  Mommy in PA:  This was a great book, I didn't want to put it down.  It really inspired me to start taking inventory of all the useless stuff I have been holding onto for years.
 
 
  Mommy in GA and I were so excited to get a chance to review this book because almost every time we talk (which is almost daily) we talk about clutter and trying to keep our houses tidied up.  Less possessions = Less time cleaning!
 
 
  The book is mainly about Joshua's experiences but is peppered throughout with helpful and sometimes comical comments from Ryan.  The only thing I didn't care for is how they put the numbers for reference in the text but then you had to go the whole way to the back of the book to find out what Ryan said.  I think they should have just put his comments at the bottom of the pages to make it easier.  There were times I would read three or four pages before I realized I had missed some of Ryan's comments. 
 
 
  I love the part about them packing up all of Ryan's stuff in his apartment, the "Packing Party"  (some packing up just involved covering the furniture so that it would have to be uncovered to access it.  Then Ryan would only take out items that he actually needed for the next 21 days.  After the 21 days was up then they would donate, sell, or trash the remaining items.  If it wasn't for the rest of my family I would do this in a heartbeat.  I know for a fact that there are things in my son's room that haven't been played with in over a year.  But I know for a fact too that if I went and got rid of something he'd ask for it the next day.
 
 
  This book has really motivated me.  I've gathered up about 7 bags of clothes that need hauled off to Goodwill and two big boxes of stuff that I plan on selling or donating and I still have tons of stuff to go through.  Thanks Joshua & Ryan for making me see that my time is way too valuable to spend it all cleaning up and organizing the things I don't really need.

Rice n Simple + Free Sample through 10/10!!!

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

Rice n Simple



  Are you looking for a quick meal idea but tired of the same old freezer dinners?  How about an all-natural, cholesterol free alternative...Rice n Simple.

  Rice n Simple comes in two varieties (Jasmine or Californai-grown Brown Rice) and the choice of three flavoring pouches (Soy Sauce, Shiitake Mushroom Sauce, or Teriyaki Glaze).  Each box contains a microwaveable bowl of rice and one flavor pouch. 

  Preparation is simple.  You take the bowl out of the box, peel off the film cover, cook in the microwave for one minute, stir in your flavoring, and you are ready to eat.  And because the flavoring packets are separate you can always just use the rice in your own recipes or choose a little or a lot of flavor that's included. 

  Mommy in GA: We tried all of the rice and LOVED it!!!  I will admit the one night I was making beef tips and rice and I had no other rice so I improvised and used the rice n simple I actually used a box of both  kinds and then we put the beef tips over it! the kids' ate it up like crazy!!!

My oldest is just a rice fan so she opened up the jasmine rice and just had rice one day no flavoring or anything and she LOVED it, she said it was a little sweeter than the rice I usually buy.

We actually did not use any of the flavoring, my kids' are weird about flavors lol.  This is one of my favorite features of the rice because you have the option to use NO sauce, a little sauce OR you can use ALL of the sauce. Totally up to you where as usually when you purchase something like this the sauce is mixed right in :(

  Mommy in PA:  I was the only one who actually ate the brown rice and I personally didn't care for it as it seemed quite dry.  The flavor was good, just too dry for me. 

  The Jasmine rice was great!  I was the only one who actually had it with the flavoring packets, my daughter had hers with cheese sauce, and my hubby had his with gravy.  I really liked the flavoring packets in the Teriyaki Glaze and the Shiitake Mushrooms but I did not like the Soy Sauce. 

  The bowls for the Jasmine Rice were the perfect size but the ones for the Brown Rice were a little on the small side to try to stir in the flavoring.  I love the fact that these only take one minute each in the microwave. 

  Rice n Simple is offering everyone free samples through tomorrow.  Just head over here to get yours. 

Soothie Suckers (Giveaway Alert)!!!

disclaimer:  We received the product below for free in exchange for our honest opinions.  All opinions remain our own.
Soothie Suckers
    Now that the weather is getting colder, cold season will be in full force.  Wouldn't it be wonderful to have something to give your children for immune support that they would actually want and that is all natural?!?! 
  Soothie Suckers are just that...these pre-measured one ounce pouches can be consumed as-is or frozen, contain no artificial flavors, no high fructose corn syrup, no alcohol, and contain certified organic or wild-crafted herbal extracts.  And they are ok for everyone two and up.
  They are available in two formulations:  Orange for Immune Support and Grape for Nasal Support. 
We received samples of both and here are what our kiddos thought of them:
  Mommy in GA: My 5 year old son is a popcicle fanatic so as soon as we opened these he didn't even want me to freeze them he just wanted one! I let him have one, it says right on the box they don't have to be frozen :)  He liked it ok but, "it's even better when it's ice mommy!!".

My 9 year old daughter still makes a face when I mention them but, she is more like me and not much of a popcicle fan..... I know, I'm not sure what is wrong with us either!!

My 8 year old daughter liked the grape ones best but said they have a funny after taste but, "still good."

My 11 year old daughter loved them she said they tasted good and she wondered if we had more lol.

All in all they had pretty positive reviews but, the best part is most kids' enjoy them and they are supposed to help your health too!! :)
  Mommy in PA:  My son is a Type 1 Diabetic so instantly the first thing I looked at was the number of carbs, typically anything I give him for colds (except items made specifically for Diabetics can really throw off his numbers) but I was happy to see that these only have 4 carbs : )

Now for the true test...I took one of each out of the freezer and told my son he just had to take one bite of each one and let me know what he thought. 

First up the Orange..."Not bad" he says as he continues to take more small bites.  He ended up finishing the whole thing afterwards.

Now on with the Grape (Keep in mind my son typically eats nothing grape...I usually have about two boxes full of just grape popsicles in my freezer to give to my niece and nephew because my son won't eat them)...anywhoo..."Wow, this is pretty good...tastes just like grape juice".

Then it was my turn to try them...The Orange is good but the Grape is my favorite, it really does taste just like grape juice.

I think my household is now ready to prepare for cold season : )
  Thanks to Soothie Suckers, one of our readers will be receiving some of their very own.  Be sure to enter via the Rafflecopter form below : )
