Do It Yourself Sugar Scrub

I love how my skin feels after I use a sugar scrub on it. I do not however like the price of most sugar scrubs. I am also weary of buying them because I do not know what all is being put in them (chemical wise). When I started my new journey with Young Living Essential Oils it opened the doors for me to be able to make my own beauty and cleaning supplies. The first thing I made was a sugar scrub and I love it and how easy it is to make.

Welcome Janet On Board to Andersons Angels


When I first started up this blog I could have never dreamed that I would one day be overwhelmed with product reviews and other opportunities that I just couldn't handle it all myself. Over the past couple years Andersons Angels has really started to take off. Over the past few months Stephanie and I both have become overwhelmed with blog work and our kids' busy schedules so I have decided to add another contributor to the blog to help ease the workload. And so today I am very excited to introduce you to a lovely lady that I am very excited to have joining us!

Armed with Truth temporary tattoos

  

Who does not like tattoos? A lot  of people actually, but who does not like temporary tattoos? Armed with Truth temporary tattoos are scripture tattoos. They offer verse tattoos, designer tattoos, decals, Greek tattoos and cards. They have plenty of 10 packs to chose from and I chose the Kids pack. When I received them, my boys were super excited to get to wear tattoos. They read all the tattoos and chose 2 that they wanted to wear. The tattoos come in a pack that has the scriptures written so you can pick out which one you want, unlike myself and my boys, we were trying to read all the tattoos backwards and realized afterwards that they were on the sleeve of the package.

God Loves Mommy & Me Book

One thing that I love to do with my children is read books. Not only does it help them with their reading and vocabulary skills but also gives us a special time together. This special time together also becomes lifelong memories that they will have of me and them together. Lately I have been getting more books that my older children can practice reading to their siblings. One of my newest and favorite books I got recently is "God Loves Mommy & Me".

Avenge and Protect Your Boys Room

*This post contains affiliate links, which means that if you click on one of the product links, you'll be helping to feed the little angels here at Andersons Angels.


One of our favorite movie series here in the Anderson household is The Avengers. Not only do my boys love it but I do as well and I am not one who usually gets into action movies! Pumpkins favorite character from The Avengers is The Incredible Hulk and he loves anything Hulk related. Recently Pumpkin received a HULK Fist 3D Deco Wall LED Night Light and was super excited about this decal because it is also a night light. My boys will not admit that they still have a fear of the dark and want a night light in their room. 

Watermelon Ball for loads of Summer Fun

Are you ready for Summer? I know that my family can not wait for the lazy summer days to get here. We love spending the day just relaxing in and around the pool. Well relaxing may be a stretch with 5 kids in a pool, but they do love spending the day in the pool playing games. This summer they will get to enjoy playing with their new Watermelon Ball - The Ultimate Swimming Pool Game. The game is for my older children and their friends but I am sure the girls will enjoy just playing with the ball in general.

Add Some Flair To Telling Time


I love decorating my home with fun and unique things. So when I came across Novel Clocks I was eager to work with them. Novel Clocks create fun clocks by recycling old CD's and DVD's. I received the Sunset in the Everglades in Florida clock to review and I love this clock. If you did not know I am a Florida girl living in Ohio, so I love anything that has to do with Florida and the beach. I am slowly redecorating my house in a beach theme. I figured if I can't be at the beach I will bring as much into my home as I can.

Treat Your Family to Imagine Soups

  

 I live with very picky eaters. My oldest doesn't like what the middle boy eats and the baby doesn't like it if its not eggs or chicken. I received the Imagine soups and knew this was going to be something that I ate by myself. I was not upset about that though. I just love soups. They are easy and usually last a day or two. The bad part about soups most of the time though, is the fat, calories and stuff they add that is not healthy or needed in a soup, in my opinion. When I got the Imagine Soups the first thing I noticed immediately was that they say Organic on a few of them. The next thing was I flipped them over and seen on the back of them it states *NON-GMO ingredients, non dairy, no added MSG, no artificial ingredients or preservatives. Some of them are also gluten free so there is a soup for everyone. The first one I tried was the organic vegetable broth. I ended up putting it in vegetable soup and it was so yummy. It is pre-seasoned which was so helpful to me because I usually end up forgetting the seasoning till its done and I eat it. I used the organic chicken broth in chicken and dumplings. I saved some of the broth and used it in mashed potatoes too and it made it so creamy and flavorful.

Baby's First Touch N' Feel Book

*This post contains affiliate links, which means that if you click on one of the product links, you'll be helping to feed the little angels here at Andersons Angels.

If you have kids I am sure you probably have the same love for books as I do. Even though Peanut is only 7 months old I don't feel he is to young for books. Ever since he was born the older kids have been reading to him. He really enjoys it when his siblings read to him and I love it because they are expanding their reading skills.

Keystone Meats for a quick dinner (Beef N' Noodles Recipe)


I love finding products that I can use in my cooking that will help make my cooking routine a bit simpler and quicker. I am very picky though when it comes to the meats that I use in dinners for my family. I try to only use natural meats for my family meals which I get from the local meat market. Recently received some Keystone All Natural Beef and Chicken to use to make my family a delicious meal. I will be sharing my recipe for Beef N' Noodles below with you.

Enjoy Spring with RoseArt Chalks

*This post contains affiliate links, which means that if you click on one of the product links, you'll be helping to feed the little angels here at Andersons Angels.


One thing that I love is my kids being creative especially outside so the mess isn't in my house. With Angel being 3 she loves to explore stuff and that typically ends with a giant mess for me to clean up. So when I received an offer to review RoseArt's new sidewalk chalk line I was excited because they were outdoor activities.

Cascade Ice Drink

I have no problem drinking water all day long but sometimes I get tired of it. I like to get flavored water every now and then. I like to find some that has no sugar and believe it or not... its harder than you would think. I was recently asked to try Cascade Ice which is sugar free, sodium free, caffeine free, gluten free and has zero calories. How much better can it get?

Do you love to dress your little ones in cute clothes that can and do make a statement? I know that I have always loved cute clothes for my kiddos and fun ones that make cute statements. I especially love when I can find one that fits the child's personality. I was recently given the opportunity to review an adorable onesie with Peanut from juDanzy.

Forget the Networks 6 Binge Worthy Netflix Shows

Waiting for one night a week to watch a single episode of your favorite TV show is so passé. Now networks have to compete with Netflix, where you can binge shows to your heart's content. Netflix has hundreds of shows for you to choose from, including new episodes of currently airing favorites, their own original content, and classics you may have missed when they were on network TV.

With being a large family we use a lot of hand-soap in our house. It seems like every time I turn around my soap container is empty. Though I think part of the issue is Angel loves bubbles and playing in water as do most 3 year olds. I was recently sent some SoapBox Soaps Hand Soap, Pomegranate to try with my family.

Stainless Steel Compost Keeper

  A few years back, we decided to start recycling. I can not tell you how much we used that can be recycled. We are a family of 5 and have 1 trash bag a week now and we are teaching the boys that alot of the trash can not breakdown in the landfill and it just clutters up our environment. We recently started to compost also. I started a garden and I was showing the boys how the table scraps break down and aid in the fertilizer process. We weren't very creative and used an old 1 gallon ice cream bucket with a lid to put all of the scraps in until we dumped it in the bin. Let me tell you, it got pretty smelly after just 2 dinners. Not only that, it didn't look to appealing to company. I was asked to try the Stainless Steel Compost Keeper by Eartheasy and as soon as I opened the box I was excited. It is not see thru, it is stainless and has a filter in the lid to keep the smell hidden. 2 filters actually that are replaceable so you can keep using the composter over and over again.

If you have some sort of hard flooring in your home whether hardwood or linoleum then this post is for you. I am sure you are aware that these floors can get dirty quickly and sometimes are not the easiest to clean. The majority of our home now is carpet unlike our old home which had hard flooring, but our kitchen and bathroom have hard flooring.

Chick~Fil~A Upcycling Challenge #chickfilamomsDIY (Good Job Box)


Since I am a part of the Chick-fil-A moms panel I was given the challenge of upcycling a soup container. Of course to do this I had to try their delicious chicken tortilla soup. I usually miss out on the upcycling challenges because I lose track of time which is super easy to do since I am a busy mom of 5. 

Since I do have 5 children and 4 of them are able to help around the house I came with the idea of making a "Good Job Box". The kids can earn small rewards by bringing home good grades, helping around the house without being asked, being caught doing a good deed, etc. It will be up to my husband and I's discretion on if they earn a draw.

Escape The Winter Cold with Castaway Bay (Giveaway)

.

When it's cold outside and you just can't bring yourself to go outside to play what do you do for fun with your family? We play games and do puzzles but after awhile we get bored with them and start looking for something entertaining to do. I dislike cold weather and typically find myself closed in during the winter going crazy with the kids that have a bunch of stored energy. Luckily for me Ohio has some great indoor water-parks within a short driving distance from our home. So we surprised the kids with our annual weekend getaway to Castaway Bay

Keep Calm and Diffuse On


With living in Ohio sickness seems to enter the home in the Fall and doesn't leave until Spring when we can open the windows and get outside. This drives me crazy to say the least especially with having a baby in the home that is more prone to getting sick. I do a lot of natural cleaners in my home and love them and have been wanting to start using more essential oils in my home. I love the idea of using the natural products to keep everyone healthy in the home. I know how well they work with cleaning as I have been able to keep a house full of people from getting strep several times by cleaning with essential oil mixes.

Do your kids get tired of the same old boring lunches? I know mine do and they are always coming up with ideas for me to help make their lunches fun and exciting. One way we have discovered to make packed lunches fun is by cutting their sandwiches and fruit into fun shapes like dinosaurs, veggie tale characters, seasonal shapes and more. This is also where FunBites and all their fun sandwich cutters come in to play for our family.

One thing that I love to do is grow my own food, but since it's the middle of winter in Ohio it's a little hard to do right now. Then I discovered the Back to the Roots company and their line of products you can grow year round indoors. I was sent the Back to the Roots Organic Mushroom Farm to review and giveaway.
