Recipe Weekend / Giveaway: Seafood South Mississippi Style Cookbook


So this week has been uber chaotic, with parental illnesses (and late night ER visits), a crazy school schedule, and work. SO I've been on limited review power (literally getting 6 hours of sleep has been a blessing some nights! And I am tooooo old to survive on 2 hours of sleep and work 12 hours!)

So instead of offering a cookbook or craft book review today for recipe weekend,
I've going to just share a recipe and GIVEAWAY a great little seafood recipe cookbook that I picked up over on the coast! Isn't it fun to troll through thrift stores to find the treasures they can hold?

Quicksilver -a Quick Follow Up and a Special Discount!

Disclosure / Disclaimer: I received these products, free of charge, from Quicksilver Scientific, for review purposes on this blog. No other compensation, monetary or in kind, has been received or implied for this post. Nor was I told how to post about them. As with any medical advice- consult with YOUR doctor before proceeding with use, our experiences are just that, ours. Yours may be different.


So the folks at Quicksilver asked if we would do a follow up post, to let our readers know how things have been going, using their products. Plus they have something special FOR YOU, at the end of the post!

Here are the items we've been using and our updates:

quicksilver products 1

The Quicksilver Ultra Vitamin is the world's first liposomal multivitamin, that delivers fat- and water-soluble vitamins together, along with many other essential but rarely included vitamins is the ultimate multi-vitamin blend. Miss Grace has been using this one and Sher immune system seems to have been very well boosted, as she has skipped over her traditional Summer cold/sinus infections this year! The minute I stopped taking it for 2 days (accidentally), I got a Summer cold!

As you know, Miss Grace also takes GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) every day to help not only reducing stress, but to help her concentrate. The Quicksilver Liposomal GABA with L-Theanine has been MUCH easier for her to take, than the 'horsepill' she was taking, so she's much more willing to take it! And you can definitely tell when she hasn't taken it, as she is more quick tempered, and has a hard time concentrating! She is still taking the recommended dosage of 4 pumps, split into 2 times a day.

thrivagen easy pump

Work has been extremely hectic, and add in a chatoic performing shcedule and late nights trying to plan out middle AND high school courses, and the Thrivagen blend had been a life saver for me!  I've had less digestive issues, and that has meant more time doing fun stuff with Miss Grace! ANd I've continued to notice less hormonal migraines. I also started using it with Miss Grace as her hormone surges are volvanic, and it really seems to help her keep on a even keel! 

Quinton Isotonic

Quinton Isotonic  is an unique way to get the minerals your body needs, in a way your body can best use. It is pure seawater harvested from protected plankton blooms by Laboratories Quinton, following strict protocols established by Frenchman Rene Quinton (1866–1925). I do wish the product didn't come in glass ampules, as I'm always afraid Miss Grace will cut herself on the broken glass ends. But I do understand why they do come this way.


Both Miss Grace and I have alternated with it and the Quinton Hypertonic. Especially after a long day outside,in extreme heat AND humidity, you take one dose and your body really seems to come back and restore itself to normal levels, quite quickly. It has really helped her after her outside performances, to not be drawn out and exhausted, and I've found that both seem to be really helping our immune system as well. 

h2 elite tablets

The last product is perhaps our second fav: Quicksilver Scientific’s H2 Elite tablets. These tablets have been a huge gift! I mix one with some electrolytes in her water for dance class, and she actually come sout of a very intensive class with water LEFT. The combo of the hydrogen and electrolytes keeps her VERY hydrated during class, so as they take water breaks, her body is refreshed and ready for the next go round, while the rest of the class is sagging! We used it for Summer hikes as well, and both of us were the only ones literally not dropping at the end of the hike!

So as you can see, Quicksilver has made a HUGE impact on both of our bodies! I was skeptical at first, that the products would make THAT much of a difference, but after using them for a longer period, they have continued being amazing, and products we highly recommend, especially if you have an active and/or stressful 
lifestyle!

 special offer

Not sure what a SomaSole is? 

SomaSole enables you to anchor the Link, an amazing resistance band, to your feet, via the carabiner attachment, or by running the Link through the anchor point. The ability to connect the Link to the body allows the user to work out with similar known gym stretching, strength building and dynamic exercises, anywhere, anytime. SomaSoles keeps you from having to stand on a band and pray it doesn't slip out from underneath your feet (and hit you),  or feel limited in movement by its lack of security. The width and thickness of the Link, along with the anti-snap exterior, makes using it comfortable to the skin. Check out this introduction video, to get more of an idea what the SomaSole can do for YOUR exercise routine!



Want to see more? You can check out some of the SomaSole workouts on their website at SomaSoleWorkout.com.

You can see just how AMAZING the new Kickstarter bundles will be, thanks to the breakdown poles, sliders and wall attachments! You really WILL have a complete portable gym with you, no matter where you go! Right now their are a limited number of Super Early Bird Specials of $149 USD, and a number of other great rewards including three (3) 30-minute shoot-around sessions with NBA legend, Metta World Peace.  

If you're still not sure, then Finesse Fitness udnerstands that and wants to share just how great the SomaSole base system IS with our readers!

Yup, that's right- I have a GIVEAWAY for you!

Children's Book Review and Giveaway: God's Blessings Day by Day by Johnny Hunt

Disclosure / Disclaimer: I received this book, free of charge, from the Tommy Nelson, for review and giveaway, purposes on this blog. No other compensation, monetary or in kind, has been received or implied for this post. Nor was I told how to post about it


And now for an adorable book, perfect for starting the school year off with!

God's Blessings Day by Day cover

Synopsis:

God’s Blessing Day by Day is a trustworthy devotional compiled by renowned pastors and church leaders. Edited by Johnny Hunt, former president of the Southern Baptist Convention, this devotional is the perfect way to introduce your children and grandchildren to a legacy of faith.

*One of the greatest gifts - and greatest challenges - of raising children is introducing them to the ways of God. As parents and grandparents, we want to impart our faith to the children we love so dearly, and it can feel more difficult than ever in the fast-moving, instant-access culture in which we find ourselves.
*God’s Blessing Day by Day, compiled by Johnny Hunt and more than 50 pastors and church leaders, is the perfect way to build faith through gratitude.

This easy-to-understand, child-friendly devotional is the perfect way to engage your family. Each devotion is written on topics children care about and includes great prayers and takeaways that will spark conversation as the timeless Word of God instructs and inspires your children.

Impart a deeper connection with the Lord in your children, help them establish healthy habits of devotion and prayer, and equip them with the tools they need to grow their faith.

God's Blessings Day by Day sample

Review:

This book is aimed at kids ages 8-12, and is perfect for early readers. But I would suggest that a betetr age group would be 6-10, due to illustrations, and simple devotionals. These days the 10-12 yr olds need the pre-teen variety instead.

As you can see each day starts with a Topic, then a bible verse, then the reading/devotional, and ends with a reiteration of the topic and a very short prayer. These are perfect for mornign prayer time, or for reading before bed, and discussing with a parent, at either time. They offer great conversation starters, especially once school starts. 

It's an adorable book, and we recommend it, as a great way to get your kdis used to daily devotions!
