The Hunger Games - Catching Fire Movie Preview & Giveaway

The Hunger Games, have you heard about it?  Yep, I didn't think so !

I'm pretty sure 97%  of the female American population (and a good percentage of males too) have at least read one book or seen the first movie!  I've read all three books, but have yet to see the first movie.  I was still reading the last book when the first movie came out, and I refuse to watch movies before I've read the entire book series.

But now, after seeing the trailer for Catching Fire, I'm going to have to watch the first movie, so I can stand in line at the theater on 11/22 to be one of the first to see Catching Fire!

I don't know if you stress about what to wear....but I can help...why not enter to win a Catching Fire Prize pack which includes:

- One (1) movie poster
- One (1) official movie T-shirt with Mockingjay logo
- Two (2) wristbands
- One (1) iPhone cleaner
- One (1) iPhone dot
This is a quick one, so make sure you enter now!

Wordless Wednesday - SHARKS!

Two weekends ago we were in the Outer Banks and took the kids over to the North Carolina Aquarium....

It got a little dicey and scary....they have some big sharks there...

Luckily we were able to all walk away safely!


Ozeri Precision Digital Bath Scale

The Ozeri Precision Digital Bath Scale (400 lb edition) with widescreen LCD and step on activation in white was a lot more than I was expecting!

It is thin and sleek and just nice to look at.  I almost didn't want to step on it (that and I didn't want to see how much I weighed!).  The battery comes with the scale so it took a total of 48 seconds to install the battery and have the scale ready to go.  Of course Owen had to try it out first!

It was so fast to read his weight, you don't even have to wait for it to "set" itself.  This will actually allow me to weigh B.  At 3, she does not want to have to "set" a scale, then step on it, then wait any more than 5 seconds to jump off and get into something else!  I also love that it measures to the nearest tenth of a pound.  It allows you to monitor your weight so much more accurately.  I have a love/hate relationship with scales, but giving me another number that I can change, and change quicker (lower of course) helps.

In case you were wondering, my right foot weighs 15.4 lbs!

Here is the manufacturer's product description for this wonderful scale:

The new Ozeri Precision Digital Bathroom Scale features auto calibration technology that makes tracking your weight easy, right out of the box. With the latest generation of Step-on Activation, your body weight is displayed immediately upon stepping onto the scale, with no tapping required to turn on or activate the scale. The Ozeri Precision Digital Bathroom Scale accurately displays results in increments of 0.2 pounds or 0.1 kilograms on its easy to read widescreen LCD, and uses 4 G sensors to capture weights up to 400 lbs or 180 kg with industry leading accuracy. The Ozeri Precision Digital Bathroom Scale also boasts a convenient unit button that instantly changes the unit of measurement from pounds to kilograms and optionally British stones. The Ozeri Precision Digital Bathroom Scale utilizes an oversized platform, impact resistant tempered glass, and durable construction. It is designed with accuracy, convenience and ease of use in mind. It also turns off automatically to conserve battery life, and runs on 1 Lithium 2032 battery (included) for the best in performance. Your Satisfaction is 100% Guaranteed.

You can purchase the Ozeri Precision Digital Bath Scale through Amazon.

To say I we love this scale is an understatement!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

UGLee, the Ergonomic Pen, Review and Giveaway

To say that I am a pen junkie is a bit of an understatement!  Pen freak may be more like it.  I have at least 10 different pens in my purse right now and we won't mention how many I have at home and work. So I was beyond excited to do a review of the UGLee pen.

The UGLee Pen is the wonderful scientifically-designed ergonomic pen. The Ultimate Grip Pen was designed by a real physician, Dr. James Lee. These pens are sold in packs of three and in your choice of seven different barrel colors (red, pink, white, yellow, green, blue, and gray). All come with black ink and you can purchase ink refills in black, blue, and red. 
 I received two red barrels and one blue barrel to test/review. I was hoping they wrote in different colors but all three were the standard black ink. The first two things I noticed were the grip and how light the pens were.

The grip was soft but a bit sticky, not to the point where your hand stuck or had a residue. I was worried just throwing it into my purse....I just knew it would pick up every crumb and piece of dirt I had. 

"Ultimate comfort!  The overall shape as well as the detailed contours are perfectly engineered to follow the anatomy of the hand. You don't have to grip this material, it grips you."
  "The UGLee pen only weighs 11 grams. That is less than 1/2 ounce!  Less mass, means less inertia, more comfort."

I love how these pens write - they flow and are super smooth.  And coming from a lefty, they don't smear/smudge!  You know how annoying it is to write something, then look back and realize that you have smeared everything because you are left handed?  Yep, that's me every day.  I typically have to stay away from gel pens, for this reason, plus being left handed, I don't always hold the pen to the right angle for roller ball pens and gel pens.  It is so annoying to have to re-write a word or letter multiple times because you do not have the right angle!  These pens are easy to hold and the ink flow is perfect.

You can order these pens HERE
