Emoji Golfball Review/Giveaway

Emoji’s are all the rage right now.  Emoji’s are everywhere to tell someone how you feel.  If you have a teenager, as I do, you know that they use Emoji’s more than they do actual words.

I had never seen then in golf balls.  These golf balls are practice balls which means they are not as strong as golf balls the professionals use.  They are however very nice to use if you are just a weekend golfer or to use as practice balls.  They are a very bright yellow, so they would be easy to find out on the golf course while you are practicing.


My daughter played when she was younger and plans to start back once the weather warms up here in the south, which will not be that much longer.  She plans on playing some with her cousin and can not wait to show him these golf balls.  They will be playing for fun so these can be used.  These can not be used in regular play if you are playing in a tournament or High School games.


I received this set of golf balls at a discount in order to give my honest and unbiased opinion.



In the box you will receive 12 golf balls.

Two Of Each Design; 2 Tears of Joy; 2 Heart Eyes;2 Kissy Face; 2 Tongue; 2 Money Eyes; 2 Sunglasses .  They come in a very nice gift box

I think these would make a great Father’s Day gift.  If you would like to buy a set for your favorite Dad or golfer you can buy on Amazon.

Easter Glow in the Dark Easter Egg Kit

Easter is such a special time in the religious  community.  I teach in a Christian school so I have to combine the fun aspect of Easter along with the religious reason behind Easter.  With this Easter Glow In the Dark Easter Egg Kit, I get to combine both in a fun way.


Egglo Glow in Dark Kit

In the kit you will receive the following:

1 x Egg-cellent Easter Adventure storybook

1 x Egg-cellent Easter Adventure narrated book on DVD (25 mins)



In the book it tells of three friends that go on an adventure to find the meaning of Easter.  They find a glowing egg in the attic which takes them on this grand adventure.  The book has a lot of reading so it for advance readers or you will need to read to your child.  I teach 3 year olds and it was a little long for them.  I ended up paraphrasing the book. The subject of the book was given to the children.  I love that it tells the story of Easter in a different way.  It takes you through different Bible stories to get to the Easter message.


The DVD is much better for smaller  children.  It tells the story from the book on the DVD.  It is narrated, cartoon.  I think if the children had talked  in the story it would have kept their attention.  My students watched it and did ask some questions  so I know they were paying attention.  One of them asked why the kids were not talking.  In the day of cartoons they are used to the characters talking.  This by no means  DVD is not good to use with the kids.  I feel like my kids did understand the lesson they were learning.
12 x Glow in the Dark Egglo Eggs


The glow in the dark eggs were a big hit.  I turned the lights out in the class room to show them.  The whole premise behind the kit is to show the children that Jesus is the light of the world.  With the glow in the dark eggs this shows the meaning.  You will get 12 eggs, 6 have the cross and 6 are plain. They do open so you could place candy in the eggs if you wanted to do an Easter Egg hunt at night.

12 x Egglo Treasures Scripture Scrolls

12 x Bible Verse Scroll Stickers



The scrolls are like in the book and DVD that the children follow through the story.

The Bible Verse Scroll stickers are like in the story.  They are not the exact words from the bible but they do get the point across of what the Bible is saying.
12x Easter Egg Stickers
12 x Egg-cellent Easter Adventure Character Stickers


The kids liked the stickers and it helped in retelling the story we talked about.

By the end of the lesson the kids knew that Jesus was the light of the world.
BONUS: Glow in the dark event program curriculum. A step by step guide to plan an event, including printable invitations, coloring pages, cut outs and more

The bonus CD is useful if you were having a party to help you plan it.  It did have a color page I printed off for the kids to color.


My thoughts.

I was very impressed with the kit.  It was well put together and each part built on the other.  It used the fact that kids love to watch cartoons to help tell the story of Easter.  They did it in such a way as not to be scary for little children.  There are parts of the Easter story that can be very scary for young children.  This kit tells the story in a way small children will under stand.  The book is a little advanced for the small child but an older child could enjoy using it and learn from it as well.


I am very pleased with the kit and glad I received it at a discount in order to give my honest and unbiased opinion.

I hope you all have a happy Easter and enjoy time with your family as you talk about the reason for Easter.

I hope

PureClean Robot Vacuum WINNER

Thanks so much for everyone that entered my first giveaway. There are more coming.

The Winner of this giveaway is Michelle @neighborsmommy.  Please contact me at  Southernmomreviews@gmail.com with your information so I can get your prize to you.


Thanks again for entering.



Vacuuming is something that is not at the top of my list of favorite household chores.  I have to admit it is way down at the bottom.  Getting a heavy vacumm out of the closet and plugging it in.  Then having to push is around.  Ok so you get the idea that I am not a fan of vacuuming .

I was so excited to get to review the Pureclean PUCRC45 – Robot Vacuum Cleaner with Removable Dustbin

Robot Vacuum

In the package you receive

  • The Vacuum
  • A charger
  • charger cord
  • cleaning brush

When you first get the vacuum, you will want to charge it.  There are two ways to charge it.  One being plug in the charging cord directly into the vacumm and then into the wall outlet.  The second way to charge is use the charging dock.  This is the easiest to use.  You will program the vacuum using the LED display.  By using this feature the vacuum will stay charged when you need it.  It takes at least 3 hours to charge and it will last between 60 and 90 minutes on a single charge.  Once it is programed after it has finished cleaning it will go back to the docking station to be charged again.

Ever had surprise company coming over and you would not be home in time clean before they come over or you need to cook dinner ?  With this item you can program it to start working at a certain time, so you could be cooking for the company while the machine cleans your floors.   Using the LED display you can sechude the vacumm to start at a certain time.  This is why it is important to keep it charged, so when you want it come on it is charged and ready to go.

It will clean carpet, hardwood and tile.   It has a buffer on the front that if it hits furniture it will not damage it.  It follows the walls with edge cleaning that helps the robot from getting stuck or rolling over edges.


We have carpet through out our house and tile in the kitchen.  It is so neat to watch it go from the carpet to the tile and does not miss a beat in the cleaning.  Just to test it out I put down some extra dirt to see if it would clean and it was so wonderful to see it pick up.


The clean is a breeze.  It has a holder in the front that you open up and dump the dirt.  I recommend cleaning it each time so it is ready for each clean.


Overall I am very pleased with this robot cleaner. You can sechduele it to clean when you need it.  I received the robot at a discount in order to give my honest and unbiased opinion.

If you would like to buy one for your self go here

50 Things to be Thankful For


It is about Spring time here in Tennessee and that gets me thinking about the year past and what has been happening in my life.  It is so easy to dwell on the negative not so good things that happened.  I however choose this year to think about the positive things.  The main thing I have to be thankful for is that girl in the picture above.  She is my greatest achievement in life and I love watching her grow up.

The list of my top 50 things to be thankful for may not be the same for you but I hope that this gets you to thinking about what you are thankful for and praise God for these things.


  1.  God-  Without him I would not be the person I  am today.
  2. My husband- I have a wonderful loving husband who loves and supports me throught the good times and the rough ones.
  3. My daughter- my heart was filled in a way I did not know possible the day I found out I was having a baby.  It gives me great pleasure to be allowed to be a part of her growing up to be a fabulous young lady.
  4. My parents- For adopting me at 6 months of age.  Without them I would have not had the love, support and opportunities they gave me.  I am thankful that they were looking for a baby when I needed a home and God made it possible that I was given to them.
  5. My friends-  they keep me grounded and are always there for me when I need them.  Sometimes even before I know I need them.
  6. My job-  I am thankful that I have a job that I love and look forward to going to.
  7. My students-  I love seeing their sweet faces and teaching them how to be a great God loving person.  Seeing their faces light up when they learn something new is
  8. Disappointments – I know that you probably think this is crazy but when you stop and think about the disappointments in your life have you not grown from them. I have grown from some of the major disappointments in my life.
  9. My house-  So many do not have one and I am thankful that I have one
  10. The sun-  It comes up everyday to show me a new day and new adventures are sure to follow.
  11. My choices- no matter if they were good or bad, I not only have the freedom to make them but also to learn from them as well.
  12. Electricity-  you may think that this is just a given and why be thankful for it but so many people in this country do not have electricity.  With electricity I do not have to worry about being able to see, and being warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
  13.  Water- I grew up on Spring water and was always worried we would not have it forever.  We got hooked onto city water and have not had to worry about it being contaminated  from the crop dusting or the animals that got in the stream.
  14. My doggie Pebbles-  She is 6 years old and we have had her since she was 6 weeks old. She gives me and I love coming home to her little face and the kisses I get while petting her.
  15. Stores that I can go to and buy the things I need.  I know in some parts of the country there are not stores within a short driving distance and places in the world that do not have stores at all.
  16. Farmers that grow a lot of the food that we eat.  During the summer I spend a lot of time putting up fresh fruits and vegetables so we will have them during the winter months.  I do grow some of these myself but I also buy from the local farmers.
  17. A warm bed to sleep in
  18. Clothes that keep me warm or cold depending on the weather.
  19. Phones that allow me to keep in touch with family and friends.
  20. Paper and Pen so I can always write down ideas and to do lists.
  21. I am thankful for the technology.  I use technology daily in my life and would not really know what we would do with out them.
  22. People who have a difference of opinion than me.  It gives me a different out look on things. That does not mean that my opinion will always change but I have learned something during the conversation and I have also show respect to the person with a a different opinion.
  23. For the person that paid for my gas the other day.  I was struggling that day and God put that person in my path that day.  The person that had gotten gas at the pump where I happened to pull into that day had prepaid for the next person that came up and that happened to be me.  I was so thankful for that day.  I stood there crying a little and thanking God for the help he gave me that day.
  24. Food that I have to feed to my family and the ability to cook food for the family.
  25. For the time I left my purse in the shopping cart and when I found it nothing was missing.  Shows me there are still good people in the world.
  26. Music- it just makes me happy
  27. Books- I use for books to learn about things as well as entertainment. I love that I can read a book and be taken away to another place for a short time
  28. Medical advancements-  When my daughter was born, my heart and lungs filled with fluid and I stopped breathing.  I was told if it had happened  10 years earlier I might not have survived.  The medical advancements had come far enough that they knew how to save me.
  29. Paved roads.  I remember living in the country where there were not paved roads and it as not an enjoyable drive.
  30. The ability however big or small to help others.
  31. The time I get to spend with my Mom.  She is sick and I treasure the times I have with her.
  32. The time I got to spend with my Dad before he passed away.  He taught me so much and I will forever miss him but so glad that he was able to be my dad.
  33. Buttercups- They are the first flower of Spring.  It always shows me that Spring is coming.
  34. My indoor plants that give me pleasure during the cold winter months.
  35. Learning new things.
  36. Meeting new people
  37. Rainbows after a good rain to remind me of God’s promise.
  38. A positive attitude from my self and others.  It rubs off on others.
  39. Learning opportunities that I get everyday and the ability to be able to know that I have learned from the opportunity.
  40. The ability to share my experiences with others.
  41. I am thankful for the wildlife that I get to see everyday outside my window.  I love watching the deer eating in the field behind my house.  I have watch a set of twin baby deer’s grow up during the year.
  42. I am grateful for the unconditional love I get from friends and family.  I hope I return that love to them also.
  43. Grateful for the memories I have.   I know that I will not have some of the people around for ever but will have the memories.
  44. I am thankful for the opportunites I have been given since I began blogging and reviewing.  Since we are on a limited income, the review items I have had the opproutnity to get have helped my family and friends.
  45. Greatful for the internet.  I have learned so much.  If I want to know how to make a chocolate cake, all I have to do is search it up and find geat recipe.  We have been able to try new receipes that I never would have been able to try with out the internet.
  46. That I live in the country.  I love where I live.  The wide open spaces and the fields that I can let my daughter run in and have fun.
