Sharpies Are Awesome



I'm not going to lie, I'm an office supplies Sharpie nerd, and wee bit of a pen snob. If it doesn't write smooth, I truthfully won't use it. (Don't tell my husband about the numerous pens that I've tossed simply because I didn't like them).

But Sharpies don't usually disappoint. 



And the Premium pen  is no exception. I love the fine point and the ink flows freely with minimum pressure. 

This pen was small enough to write in the tiniest of margins on my desk calender. But it was also bold enough in color that I could easily see what I had written. I've claimed this pen for 'my use'. I even told Hubby that he will need to get his own because I don't plan to share. 

And it probably won't surprise you that I immediately fell in love with the Neon Permanent Markers. It's no secret that I am a lover of neon. These pens are bright. The color flows easy. And I loved how I could use the different colors to color code my calendar to help keep my family organized. I should also mention that since they are permanent, they are great for organizing boxes for storage. I've been doing a lot of organizing lately, and having bold neon colors labeling the boxes will make it easy when I'm looking for something that I happened to store. 


And who doesn't love a little metallic ink in their life? The Metallic Permanent Markers work great on dark paper. But I also found that they work great on white and other colored paper also. But using them on black paper really makes the metallic ink stand out. 


So yes, among other things, I'm a Sharpie nerd. And if you are like me and picky about your pens, I really suggest giving these a try. They definitely did not disappoint.

  1. Glad to see someone else that is an office supply nerd. I LOVE to go to office supply store and get new things to write with or color with or to just look to see what is new. I am a former educator and I could not wait until tax free weekend here each year just so that I could stock up on all kinds of new office supplies.

Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker Review and Giveaway

I love music and streaming music through various apps on my iPhone. But with the case that I have on my phone, it sort of blocks the speakers a little. I can hear, but it can be a little muffled. So when I heard about the  Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker  I jumped at the chance to try it. I was a little nervous since there really wasn't a lot of instructions on setup. I mean it had the usual pictures of this button does this etc, but there really wasn't a lot of documentation with it. So I was a little apprehensive at first.  But it didn't take me too long to realize that I didn't need a lot of instruction. It was pretty much straight forward. Charge it. After it was charged, turn it on. I went into my connections on my iPhone. It immediately found it, paired, and I was good to go.  I did get a little confused on which button was volume up (and down). But after a little trial and error with that, I've had absolutely zero iss

Little Buffalo State Park

I don't know about where you live, but where we live we are within driving distance to several State Parks. And because the weather has been so cool this Summer, and although it's August, last week was the first time we'd been to the pool. Lil Man had a blast. We had hoped some friends could join us today, but no one was available. But we ventured out, just the two of us, and we had a blast. The water was still pretty cold. In fact, we would get in - play for awhile - then get out and sit on a beach towel in the sun to warm up. This seemed to work well. We splurged and Lil Man enjoyed his first chocolate chipwich. He exclaimed "It's a cookie AND ice cream!" I do believe he thought it was a genius idea. Although it can be exhausting as my Lil Man is one that wants me to definitely join in with him with the sprinklers etc, it was pure joy to watch him enjoy himself. I think this picture speaks for itself. I hope you are enjoying your last few days

Ecosak Nylon Nut Bag Review

I have been compensated in the form of a gift card/money/coupon and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. All opinions expressed are mine and honest in nature. Well, can you believe that I am trying out a nut bag to make my own almond milk? (I'll pause a moment so that you can let the shock wear off!) I can honestly say that never in my life did I intend on making my own almond milk. But as you know, we are making some changes to our diet. So I decided I would give it a try.  And with the Ecosak I also received some recipes which really helped since I wasn't really sure what I was supposed to do. I asked Lil Man if he wanted to help me, and he was more than thrilled. Apparently making almond milk was an exciting and fun thing for him. First things first was to wash the Ecosak (easy to do) and soak the nuts. Yep, I put some raw almonds in a bowl, covered them with water and let them soak 6-8 hours or so. After they had been soaked, I
