Coeur d’ Alene Resort and Lake Cruise {Review}

I recently got the chance to go to Coeur d Alene Resort and go on their dinner cruise. Part of my experience was getting to stay overnight at the hotel. All I can say is Toto, We aren't in Kansas anymore. I consider myself to be quite the hotel snob. I have standards. The Resort hotel is pretty fancy. As in no-microwave-to-heat-your-leftovers fancy. I guess rich people don't keep leftovers. The room and bathroom were…

The Tuttle Twins Learn about the Law {Review}

I received this book free for my unbiased review. My opinions are my own. This book is about the Tuttle Twins, Ethan and Emily. Geared towards the ages 6-10 crowd, I would say it was still a good read for the tweens. I believe it would hold their attention just fine. After a school assignment on interviewing a person whom they feel is wise, the twins go about chatting with their neighbor, Fred. While they…

Prepper’s Long Term Survival Guide {Review}

I don't even know where to begin on this Prepper's Long Term Survival really like this book THAT much. Now, believe me, I have read my share or preparedness books. Fiction and Non-Fiction. This book was different. In the beginning of each chapter he has a fictional journal entry. He is journaling what life is like after an EMP. I really enjoy these types of stories and feel I learn more from them than just…

Wise Foods Favorite’s {Review}

I got the chance to review Wise Foods and I thought this would be a great chance to see if their food was something I wanted to store. I did receive the food for free in return for my unbiased review, so here it is. This box says 16 servings for 1 person. Well, once you cook the food, that is way too much for one person and the only time I would be eating…

Emergency Preparedness Binder

Do you have an Emergency Preparedness Binder? Do you need an Emergency Preparedness Binder? I didn't think I did until I went to take inventory and realized I didn't have an easy way to track my preps. I purchased an accounting notebook thinking that would work. It didn't. I have tried a few apps, on my phone, in the past, but I really wanted it written down. I then found this Emergency Preparedness Binder made…
