Hunting Camping glove review #camohuntinggloves

We have gone through more gloves this year than any other time in our lives! Being active outside requires gloves. My number one concern is function and comfort - do they perform and do they fit? After, that it's fun to pick out styles and patterns. We had the opportunity to try out these men's hunting camouflage gloves  and they were pretty swell. They are a thinner glove, but are great for the in-between seasons and for people with naturally hot/sweaty hands. They were comfortable and durable. I would definitely get them again.

MyoBuddy Review

Whenever you purchase a property (farmland, house, townhome...) it should really come with a warning label....and a massage!! Home and land improvements are hard work! We bought a farm last fall, and it has consistently kicked our butt every weekend since! So when I had the opportunity to review the MyoBuddy , I thought it was a great idea. If you're like me, then you've probably tried every massage product available. Personally, I've had the most success with foam rollers and tennis balls - but that's because I'm pretty much stuck with my own two hands when I'm in need of muscular therapy and I really prefer deep tissue work. The Myobuddy is best described as a belt sander - or auto detailer - for your body. It's powerful and able to cover a big distance in short time.  The Myobuddy plugs into an outlet, but has a reasonably long cord so you don't have to be stuck to the wall to use it. It has multiple speeds, and (in my opinion) the top

That time I almost died and how it changed my life

When I was 12 years old, I almost died. Something happened to me toward the end and it changed my life forever. I have only told this story to 5 people - my husband, my 2 kids, my 94 year old friend, and my husband's aunt - in that order. I told my 94 year old friend last summer because she was grappling with her own mortality after the loss of her husband and I thought she might gain something from my experience.  She did and she is no longer afraid. I told my husband's aunt last summer. I never intended to tell anyone else. My daughter approached me last night and told me she thought I should share my story.  I explained to her why I didn't want to, and we worked out a solution. Why didn't I want to share the story? Because I didn't want to profit from the story. That may not make sense as you peruse through his blog and find affiliate links, articles on how to make money, and advertisements. The thing is, I like to make money. I am a little obsessed. It&

Making Your Own Chocolate Chips - a Head to Head Challenge

As I've grown older, my food knowledge has evolved. I've been a label reader for years, but it has taken me a long time to truly understand how the various "ingredients" effect our bodies and which ones to avoid. How scary is it that we even have to think about "avoiding" certain foods because their ingredients aren't good for us. Something is very wrong with that system! And so....I have embarked on a renewed quest to "make our own" convenience food products. This week, I made chocolate chips for the first time. Next week, I'll be tackling tortillas. The chocolate chips were surprisingly easy to make, and it was wonderful knowing what ingredients went into them and at what proportions!  To make these - I melted 3 tablespoons of coconut oil (you could use cocoa butter or butter if you wanted) over a double boiler, then added 2 tablespoons of sugar, 6 tablespoons of cocoa powder, a sprinkle of salt and a splash of vanilla. 

If you do anythign outdoors then you might want some #tiedownstraps

Over the past 6 months, we have been outside more than any other time in our life! That's because we bought a farm and have been busy fixing it up. Along with all that outdoor time, comes a lot of tools and equipment. The first thing we bought was a trailer and tie downs. Tie down straps are essential! And they come in all different shapes and sizes. There are bungees, rachet straps, hook straps. This review is centered on these Tiger straps : They are long and strong!! We usually use straps to tie down our atv, and this weekend we had to use straps to pull a bobcat out of the lake!! Holy smokes. For our usual work, we wouldn't need a strap that is as strong as the tiger straps (or as long) but I have found the perfect use for them. They helped us transport a huge corn crib (the length was awesome) and helped us cinch it back together once we found it's forever location. Awesome! They are great straps. I would recommend them to others. *I received a complimenta
