May and June Arcade Block Unboxing

You know I love me my Arcade Block subscription from Nerd Block! As with much of my online life lately (I’m getting better, I swear), I’ve been incredibly slack at getting these unboxing videos done! So here is a two for one video!

If you want to get your own Arcade Block subscription from Nerd Block, DO IT! No, I mean it. Do it. Because it is so much fun opening up a box of things you can’t get in stores and that are so very geeky and so very fun. I am giddy every time I see the mailman coming to my door with this box and he brings it right to my door instead of the mailbox because he knows how excited I get. Now that’s service!

As I said in the video, the links in this post are affiliate links so if you sign up through me, I get paid and I thank you very, very much for that because it allows me to keep getting these!

And I really like getting these.

If you’re into watching reviews rather than reading them, feel free to skip right down to my video review. If not, read on!

I don’t know why, but I don’t often have high hopes for products like these. Maybe it’s because I’m a bit of a cynic or simply because I don’t have a huge amount of experience with serums and such things but I have to admit, I had a really good experience with the Xanadu 24K Gold Serum from ISA Professional.

I’ll list my thoughts in point form because that’s just the way my brain is functioning right now!

Introducing My Kids!

As I was looking over some of my YouTube videos, I realized that my kids have never been in my videos and since I love watching (or reading about) all of YOUR kids doing fun and silly things, I thought I’d introduce my boys!

I’ll warn you now, there is talk or boobies and poop. That’s pretty much what my life revolves around.

Curly Carrots on Top! #VeryHealthy Spiral Slicer

In an effort to eat better and be generally healthier, we’ve been trying out some new recipes lately and have been trying a lot harder at meal planning. I’ve been getting a little lot of help from the meal planning system at Wellness Mama so if you’re looking for some help, I’d recommend it!

The other night we had a classic beef stroganoff over cauliflower which was AMAZING! Just because I wanted to jazz it up a little, I used the Very Healthy Spiral Slicer to make some “curly carrots” as Ben called them and plopped them right on top. Almost makes me look like I know what I’m doing, right?

If you’ve never used one of these spiral slicers before, I’d highly recommend it! It was very quick and easy to use and it’s a little something different to add to a dish. There’s a finer side that I used, and a larger side if you want your spirals a bit bigger. This one that I received for review came with a little recipe book inside the box with some great suggestions. I also received an email from the company with some eBooks and video tutorials on how to use it. Excellent customer service! I’d happily shop from them again.


Have you used a spiral slicer? What sorts of things have you made? I’d love more ideas!

People Love Dads Breastfeeding!

Hi! It’s been a while! And by “a while”, I mean a week. Our family was taken over by the man-cold from hell last week so I’m sure you’ll excuse my absence since I was knee deep in snotty tissues and crying children. I swear, I almost didn’t make it out alive! Moving on!

I’ve talked about it before, but I always get a kick out of looking into how people find my blog or my YouTube videos. The search terms people are using that bring them here never fail to give me a giggle or make me question humanity, one of the two.

Here’s my latest favorite.

So turns out that people are really interested in seeing dads breastfeeding. Who knew! And in case you’re interested, here is the video that these searches point to. Ben was so little back then!
