Shoo Fly Don't Bother Me!! Terro Review & Giveaway


I don't know if you live in an area where mosquito's are absolutely annoying bothersome, but I do, and I am so sick and tired of swatting at my arms, legs, back, head and face. Terro is releasing a new mosquito repellent that is made with 100% natural granules which means it is safe for your family and pets and some even bette news, it lasts for 21 days!

From the website:
Terro Mosquito Repellent can be used around patios, decks, campsites, pools, and houses, on lawns and in and around flower or garden beds. “The repellent releases a nicely scented botanical vapor that disorients the mosquitoes, keeping them from detecting people or pets in the immediate area,” explains Stewart Clark, technical director at Terro. “To ensure the most effective mosquito control it is critical to eliminate standing water where mosquitoes like to breed. When possible, eliminate water from empty flowerpots, driveway puddles, hot tub covers or any item that can hold water for a few days.”

Terro Mosquito Repellent comes in a 2 lb. container that will cover approximately 1000 square feet. For best results, apply to a dry surface during light or no wind. For greater repellency, higher application rates such as 3 lbs. per 1000 square feet may be used. Repeat applications every 21 days for continuous mosquito control. Do not water after application as continuous moisture can reduce the performance of the product. Terro Mosquito Repellent will not damage lawns or plants.

Our Review:

We were able to review the new Terro Mosquito Repellent and I have to say that I am extremely happy with it! I used a fancy gadget to put the Terro Mosquito Repellent onto the lawn{which was a lot easier then trying to spread it evenly throughout the whole lawn.} I put it onto the grass and around the patio where we spend most of our time. As a matter of fact I put it on while my son was running through the sprinkler! I let the dog out when I was finished and he didn't even bother the granules.
We are out there everyday and night when mosquito's are out and on the prowl and we didn't see not one mosquito nor get bitten!
We have had the Terro Mosquito Repellent on the lawn for about 15 days now and have not had any problems with mosquitos at all, so our overall review of Terro Mosquito Repellent is an A++!

Between the iPhones, iPads, computers, video games etc. our kids are basically known as the iGeneration.
As a parent of a ten year old son, I am always worried about his education, and even more so when I see him struggling in a certain subject. For some reason no matter what I do to help him, he doesn't get it. I know that I am not the only parent who has a child that struggles in one or more areas of their education. More and more school districts are starting to work with online educators. Some students need help with one or more subjects, or may prefer online schooling to the classroom. That is where Onlineschoolsolutions.com comes in. Aventa Learning is for grades 6-12 and they offer the same type of schooling as in the classroom but with a better approach to your child and the way they learn.

Taken from the website:

A recent survey found that compared to traditional learning environments, online learning is proving to be an effective way in teaching today's "iGeneration" who live in a world of customized and instant feedback. Here are highlights from the survey:

-72% of online students spend three or more hours on homework per week vs. 56% of students in traditional schooling.

-54% of online students get more challenges when they are doing well in school vs. 49% of students in traditional schooling.

-58% of online students get more help when they fall behind vs. 40% of students in traditional schooling.

-Online students have more interest in attending a four year college after graduation than students in traditional schooling. 78% vs. 67%
Aventa Learning  is accredited and not only for home-schooled families, but also for those who want to brush up on skills, but also succeed and move on to the next level of their education.

In my review of the program, it was easy to use, I was able to see the instructor and converse with the class when needed. The curriculum is based on your child and your child's needs. In all it was very easy to navigate and operate.
Whether your child is doing good in school or struggles, it's nice to know that there is a place to  go to get the help that you need for your child and their education.

Designing the Slobproof Way and A Giveaway!


We all love a beautiful home, we find inspiration all over and sometimes we can use it in our house and sometimes we can't. We either have kids, pets, husbands, wifes or other dilemma's to contend with or that don't make it practical in our homes. Well Interior Designer Debbie Wiener has a soulution for our dilemma's! She has an ingenious line of furniture in which she calls "Slobproof with Crypton." What is Slobproof you ask? It is comfortable, sustainable, chic, and just that "Slobproof!"

From the website:

It’s the fabric!

Crypton is a specially engineered fabric system with an integrated moisture barrier that promises - and delivers - permanent performance. No stains. No spills. No surprises. Impervious to the dirt and grime of everyday living, it resists whatever life can throw at it, remaining clean, dry, and beautiful. Life's too short to worry about spilled milk, errant markers or muddy paws! Finally, furniture designed for the way we really live. We call it mess-free, stress-free slobproof living!

It’s the furniture!

My “all made in the USA” seating line is environmentally friendly - manufactured with sustainable maple hardwood and fluorocarbon free foam. And it’s built to last with screwed, glued and corner-blocked frames, inner springs and luxury seat cushions that are guaranteed for life!

It's the style!

Simple and sized for city living or sprawling suburbs, I hand-selected each piece for comfort, versatility and durability. With so many colors, patterns and seating options, Slobproof! with Crypton fits in any lifestyle, in any home.

Slobproof facts:

-Slobproof! is a small, Maryland-based furniture and design company that is certified WBE - Women's Business Enterprise.

-All Slobproof! seating is made in the USA. All of our furniture frames are made in the USA. Not many manufacturers make 100% of their products in the USA, which is why we're so proud that we do!
-All Slobproof! fabrics are certified SCS Indoor Advantage™ Gold and complies with Section 01350 California standards. We offer a five-year warranty on our moisture barrier. What that means for you is that we absolutely stand by the statement that our fabric will remain spill, moisture, bacteria, and odor-free!
-All Slobproof! seating frames are Sustainable Forest Initiative (SFI) Approved. Our 100% kiln-dried maple hardwood frames come from forests approved by the sustainable forest initiative. Each frame is screwed, glued, corner-blocked and guaranteed for life! The glue that is used to reinforce our screwed and corner-blocked frames is water based and contains no harmful chemicals.
-100% of the materials used in Slobproof's frames and cushions come from the USA and most of the materials come from within a few miles of our North Carolina furniture factory, so that no questionable materials or hazardous materials are being used in the product, thereby minimizing our carbon footprint.
-Slobproof! cushions meet the highest environmental standards and include these materials:
-Ecru fabric: Down proof ticking is 100% cotton unbleached fabric.
-Regenerated Fiber: 100% recycled materials. Made from clear and white plastic bottles. This material is renewed into its original form, then reprocessed into fiber.
-Feather/Down: Feather and down are natural products. All of our feather and down are washed in an 8 - step process using biodegradable soaps which allow our fill to not only be natural, but also hypo-allergenic. All of our toss pillows are feather and down.
-Soy Foam: (seat cushions only) - Plant-based soy beans replace 20% of the foam with natural soy ingredients.
-Every material that is used in our cushions is chosen with the environment, the health and the comfort of our customers in mind!
-Our seat cushions come standard in 2.5lb foam core banded with polyester fiber. This cushion is then     encased in a down proof tick cover, offering superior, long-lasting seat comfort that's guaranteed for life.
-Slobproof! furniture comes with a lifetime warranty on the hardwood frame; a lifetime warranty on the 2.5lb seat cushion and a five year warranty on the fabric. You won't get this from any other seating manufacturer in the world.

Having a son and a dog, is messy, but when you throw me into the mix, it's bound to be a disaster!
Now I don't know about you, but I need all of the design and "Slobproof" help that I can get at my house. If I could have a beautifully designed house and have it not get dirty ever, you can count me in! How many times have you gotten a couch to just have it spilled on? You now have a permenant reminder of the incident and no way to get it out! I have tried;}

Whether your looking for Debbie's Interior Desgin services, something from her Furniture Line, info from her book, or tips and tricks from her blog, your sure to have a "Slobproof" home!

Buy It:
You can buy Debbie's book on Amazon.

Win It: Debbie is giving one Ma21cuteboy reader her book Slob Proof! Real-Life Home Decorating Solutions!

I am calling on my friends for help.....

Did you have a trampoline as a child? I did, and I had soooo much fun on it with my sister and brothers. We used to put the sprinkler underneath the "tramp" and slide and jump with the beads of water, we used to have sleepovers, and "I" even got hurt alot. The reason I emphasised I is because nobody else did! hmm I wonder why? Do you remember how bad it hurt when you got pinched with the springs? yowsers! Well unfortunately in my situation, I can not afford to buy my son a trampoline and that's where my FRIENDS come in.....

I entered to win a Springfree Trampoline from Springfree Trampolines with A LOT of other's. It is a trampoline that doesn't have any springs! Well I entered, but I need votes to win... Could I please take a little of your time to vote  for us? If I were to win the Springfree Trampoline, my son would get a lot of physical therapy and I would get some of my sanity back! lol You don't have to do anything except click to vote-EASY PEAZY!
UPDATE: You can vote for more then one person, but only one time for each person! That's pretty cool eh?
Thank you in advance!!

*Disclosure* This is not a paid post, I am trying to win a Springfree Trampoline from said company and just need votes. No purchase is necessary, but a vote is appreciated and I am not above groveling!
