A New Trilogy is Born

 Post is sponsored. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.

EternalEternal by H.G. Nadel
Publisher: Sourced Media Books
Release Date: January 2, 2013
Paperback: 260 Pages

Your hunger for a new, YA paranormal, romantic thriller is set to be appeased by H.G. Nadel in her debut novel, Eternal. Resurrecting old romance brings forth all the demons that went along with it.

The first in the trilogy, Eternal begins the story of Julia Jones, an eighteen year old science prodigy. Dealing with her mothers death, she tries to use the time at her summer internship to help her through. Not so easy when strange things start happening after she somehow manages to save her bosses life...

Drawing from real-life star-crossed lovers Pierre Abalard, a twelfth-century French philosopher and poet, and his greatly adored Heloise, this book is sure to grab a hold of readers.

Nadel's experience as a youth acting coach shows in her storytelling, and it is no wonder she has been able to write such a touching tale for everyone to enjoy.

Eternal will keep readers on their toes, packed with the twists and turns we all crave. It will pluck at your heart strings, and keep you guessing through to the end!

Red Shirt Kids: Review & Giveaway

Red Shirt Kids by Bryce Clark & Kim B. Clark

I received a copy of this book free of charge. All opinions expressed are 100% my own. 

Sixth-graders Mike and Amy must learn to use their special powers to save other children

Mike and Amy Smith are nervous about moving from their nice house in Boston to a dilapidated old mansion in Falton, New Hampshire. They know they’ll have to start the sixth and seventh grade not knowing anyone, and their new house is just plain creepy.

While searching their dusty attic, Mike and Amy uncover an old wooden chest with a mysterious lock. Inside, they find magical red shirts that give them special powers. Together with a new friend, Sam, Mike and Amy must figure out how to harness their newfound gifts while keeping them secret from their parents. As their powers grow, they begin a search for two kids who had gone missing in the summer, pitting them against a powerful adversary with mystical powers of his own. Will Mike and Amy be able to unlock the ancient mystery of the shirts? And will they be able to find the missing children before it is too late?

Amazon  *  Barnes and Noble  *  Goodreads

My Thoughts:

Born from Kim Clark's imagination as he made up those bedtime stories every child asks to hear, Bryce Clark has taken his fathers' adventures and turned them into a great novel for children ages 8-12. Though, truth be told, even reading it to myself, I enjoyed the story. I could picture reading this with my niece and nephews, and one day, when she's a bit older, Emily too. 

Through his stories, Kim managed to pass on valuable lessons of being a good person, being kind, helping others, and so much more. 

The premise of this book stuck out to me and that's why I wanted to review it. I thought it sounded a little mystical, and I love mysteries in general, so it seemed the perfect mix. The thought of children disappearing in a book, movie, or any situation for that matter, gets under my skin. I was hooked right from the prologue and read through it very quickly.

Mike and Amy were the typical sister-brother characters. Mike's little hints of jealousy towards his sister, and the attention she gets from their parents was well portrayed. I could really feel their bond grow deeper as I read further.

Sam was my favourite character. I liked him right from the beginning. He was the target of school bullies, and I think a lot of kids would be able to relate to him. I couldn't help feeling bad for him when he was enduring the bullying. I'm glad the author didn't  make bullying sound positive, even from the bullies point of view.

Ben surprised me the most, the way him and his father lived was sad. But, his true character began to show throughout the book, and he definitely gets the most improved character award. 

Overall, the story was a little predictable for me (obviously, since it's intended to entertain an 8-12 year old :) ) but I know that so many kids would love to read this, and the adults reading along would enjoy too. Everything was described in great detail, but not so much that it became confusing. I could easily picture what was happening. I can see these adventures being turned into a movie or television series one day!

I hope to see many more Red Shirt Kids adventures and I hope that the characters from this book carry on into the next book as well. I liked where they wound up, and would like to see how things go for them. 

About the Authors:

Bryce Clark wrote and directed the independent dramatic comedy, Beauty and the Least. He has also written for the children's show, Yo Gabba Gabba, and is a partner in the production company, StoryLand Entertainment. Bryce and his wife live in the Salt Lake area with their five children.

Kim B. Clark is the former dean of Harvard Business School and is currently the president of Brigham Young University-Idaho. He and his wife live in Rexburg, Idaho.

Getting up again

So over this last week, I've been noticing an increase in my stress levels, and finally a couple of days ago it took over and I wound up sick again. I wasn't able to keep any food or water down for all of Tuesday and yesterday was mostly a recuperation day.

Today, I'm doing a lot better. Feeling a bit more energized and I've been able to keep some food and lots of liquids down.

I guess it's one of those situations where I have to keep my focus, and take it little bits at a time. Test the waters before jumping in, if you will. I just kind of dove into this blogging thing without knowing a whole lot about what came along with it. It's all a learning curve, and a sometimes-stressful one. From now on, I think I'll be taking it a little bit slower, and cutting down on the number of giveaways I participate in. I would like to be writing more instead of just trying to keep up with promoting giveaways.

Today, I've been able to make lunch for Emily and read to her and colour with her. While she's napping, I'm trying to catch up on as much as I can. Emails, Social Media....fixing my funny looking post that went up on Monday. lol the text will match...I promise. :) It will just take a bit of time.

Since I couldn't be at the computer these past couple of days, I caught up on some reading, and writing a couple of reviews. I will be sharing those shortly, and hope to be running normally very soon.

I just have to keep fighting.  Keep putting these anxious thoughts out of my mind, and focus. Be a good Mom, take care of my health, and be accountable....A little reminder to myself ;)

Thank you for all of your continued support.

Building with the Best

This post brought to you by Royal Building Products. All opinions are 100% mine.

For years now I've dreamt of building my own home, so I find myself always looking into different options when it comes to where, what, how, and with whom I'm going to build my little piece of heaven. I know that I want it to be a fair size, but not to big. I want my children to be able to slide open a door that leads out onto our deck, and then out into our backyard.
Vinyl patio doors stood out as an option to me for a few reasons. 
One, because they are durable, and can stand up to both weather, 
and whatever your little one's may throw at it. Two, it doesn't 
rot or need to be repainted, like wood and will never flake or pit 
like aluminum. Three, because vinyl requires minimal maintenance 
to keep it looking newer, longer. Lastly, and my favourite part, 
is the savings in utility costs! Vinyl acts as an insulator, 
so it'll keep the heat in during the winter, and keep the cool 
air in during the summer.
Royal Building Products works with one of North America's largest suppliers of vinyl compounds which helps ensure only the highest quality of raw material to make their products. They work hard to bring innovation to the market and support local economies across USA and Canada. For someone like me, I could definitely use their Design services offered to customers. It would be great to have a team of dedicated professionals to work with on my future home, or well, any project for that matter

Baby Bullet Giveaway

Welcome to the Baby Bullet Giveaway Event!

The Baby Bullet is one of those things that would have been so handy when Emily was starting to eat solids!

I love that this set makes it easier to make and store your own baby food. I quickly learned how much better it was to do that, than to buy the commercial baby foods that were full of sugar!

M&M Meat Shops Invites You!

M&M Meat Shops is encouraging Canadians everywhere to Bring Back the Mealtime Tradition!

Meal time has always been an opportunity for families to come together and spend quality time as a whole. The way time gets away from us each and every day is a constant reminder of how important it is to carve out family time in our often hectic, day to day lives.

On September 19, 2013 M&M Meat Shops invites you to participate in the 9th Annual National Family Dinner Night!

A recent national study completed for M&M Meat Shops reveals that fewer families than ever before are making family meal time part of their daily lives. Nearly 10 per cent of Canadians say that they never have dinner with their partner or their family*, and fewer than 40 per cent sit down with their family for a daily meal. 

Some of my favourite conversations between my family and I have occurred across the dinner table. These memories are some that I can only hope to create with my own family as our daughter gets older! If great memories aren't enough incentive to be a part of this event, how about a contest? :) 

About National Family Dinner Night

This year, in addition to encouraging everyone to enjoy a family meal, M&M Meat Shops is challenging Canadians to share their own family-favourite recipes that feature M&M Meat Shops’ products. 

From September 13 to October 11, 2013, you will be able to submit your recipes on the  M&M Meat Shops Facebook page to be entered for a chance to win 1 of 3 prizes of a $100 M&M Gift Card. Winners will be selected by a panel of M&M food and recipe experts and the winning recipes will be featured on

Okay... so I know life can be crazy! Time can slip away quite easily, and sometimes you just need a little bit of quick inspiration!

Want to add a bit of flare to your mealtime? You can do that with M&M Meat Shops Chicken Breast Slices, drizzled with their own sweet and savoury teriyaki sauce and served over M&M Rice & Vegetable Medley.
Or you could try the newest M&M Meat Shops one-dish entrees: Steam and Serve Chicken Alfredo, Steam and Serve Hearty Beef & Potatoes or Spaghetti Bolognese. All feature great homestyle recipes, delectable ingredients and are ready in 12 minutes or less!

I hope you'll join my family, and families across Canada in the coming together for dinner 1 week from today on September 19th, 2013 for the 9th Annual National Family Dinner Night! :) 

What will you be making? I'm thinking some lasagna! That's always a favourite in our household...
What's one of your family's favourite meals?
