Spice Box


My Take on the Subscription
After being married for some time it is always fun to keep it fun and exciting and to spicen things up every now and again. This monthly set is a nice way to set the mood and the tone for that fun to begin. The packs themselves have a wide array of things within the box that are for both men and women and the quality of the products is top rate. You receive your box in a very innocuous way which is nice for discreteness and the different items allow you to explore and have fun. I will say that this past month I received a Deluxe Spice Box and it came with a ton of things within it, including some more expensive items. That being said, for the items that you get each month, the price you pay for the subscription is definitely worth it.  If you are looking for a kit that will change things up and allow you to have a little fun together this is definitely it and it will keep coming each month with the great monthly service that they offer.

DVD Review - Transformers Energon: The Complete Series

Transformers Energon: The Complete Series
 photo disclaimer2_zps8af35ac1.jpg

About the DVD
The Unicron Trilogy Continues

Ten years of peace have passed since Unicron’s destruction, but all of that’s about to change. A mysterious enemy has unleashed the Terrorcons on the Autobots’ cities, gathering energy for plans of total domination. Enter a newly revived Megatron and the universe is in for a war unlike any it’s ever seen between the Autobots and Decepticons. And once again, Earth is caught in the middle!

Can Optimus Prime and his valiant Autobots — alongside their human allies — protect the Earth against this new threat? Find out with the complete series of Transformers: Energon!




My Take on the DVD
This was a very complete DVD set that gives any Transformers fan something truly new and unique to explore and enjoy. I will say that the cartoon artistry in this was not as strong as in some of the series DVDs' that I have watched in the past. That being said though, the story itself was a strong one and I loved that the entire series was at my fingertips. While in my opinion this was not the strongest of the transformer series, and there were some voices for the autobots that I did not think completely connected with the characters themselves, I still found that the story itself was fun and engaging and I did end up watching all the way through. That being said, if you are a fan of the Transformers, I would highly recommend that you watch this!

Book Review - The First Book of Ore: The Foundry's Edge

 photo disclaimer2_zps8af35ac1.jpg

About the Book
For Phoebe Plumm, life in affluent Meridian revolves around trading pranks with irksome servant Micah Tanner and waiting for her world-renowned father, Dr. Jules Plumm, to return home. Chief Surveyor for The Foundry, a global corporation with an absolute monopoly on technology, Phoebe's father is often absent for months at a time. But when a sudden and unexpected reunion leads to father and daughter being abducted, Phoebe and would-be rescuer Micah find themselves stranded in a stunning yet volatile world of living metal, one that has been ruthlessly plundered by The Foundry for centuries and is the secret source of every comfort and innovation the two refugees have ever known.



My Take on the Book
In this book the author is not an amazing job to create characters that you truly feel connected to. You have strong protagonists in which the story revolves. You also get a story filled with adventure, mystery and suspense, all of which are things that a young reader wants in a book. I have to say that I are true be enjoyed the characters of Phoebe and Micah. The author has largely differentiated the characters which is part of their allure (to me that is). The book provided nonstop engaging reading opportunities, where I found myself and not willing to set the book down so that I could find out more. The world in which the book is situated was well developed in speaks about a world different than our own but still close enough to our reality that as a reader you can connect with what is being shared. This was a book that was wonderfully creative and is something that I know both micros will enjoy as they get a little bit older.

Book Review - The Good Dad

The Good Dad: Becoming the Father You Were Meant to Be
 photo disclaimer2_zps8af35ac1.jpg

About the Book
As president of Focus on the Family, a dad to two sons, and a man who didn’t really have a dad growing up, Jim Daly has a passion for fathers. He wants to see families thrive, and that starts with dads who help set the tone for the household, and whose influence on their children has been widely documented by social science.

Jim Daly, president and CEO of Focus on the Family, is an expert in fatherhood—in part because his own "fathers" failed him so badly. His biological dad was an alcoholic. His stepfather deserted him. His foster father accused Jim of trying to kill him. All were out of Jim's life by the time he turned 13.

Isn’t it odd—and just like God—that the director of the leading organization on family turned out to be a guy whose own background as a child was so pretty messed up? Or could it be that successful parenting is discovered not in the “perfect” peaceful household but in the midst of battles and messy situations, where God must constantly be called to the scene?

Using his own expertise, humor, and inexhaustible wealth of stories, Jim will show fathers that God can make them a good dad, a great dad, in spite of the way they’ve grown up or the mistakes they’ve made. It’s not about becoming a perfect father. It’s about trying to become a better father each and every day, building relationships through love, grace, patience, and fun—and helping children grow into the men and women they’re meant to be.


My Take on the Book
This is the type of book that will make you truly reconsider what fatherhood means to you and to your family. The book is spiritually based and makes numerous connections to God’s plan for fathers in society today. The book is poignant and well-written and shares personal experiences of the author along with the goals that this author has to become a stronger, more engaged dad. The book is deep and gives readers a true glimpse into what is at the core of fatherhood. I know that I, for one, found that the book truly engaged me and had me look back at my own traits and characteristics, and help me to reevaluate. One of the difficult things to grapple with in this book are the stories that the author shared about being raised in a home with an abusive father. Though I say this, the stories are there to inspire other fathers to become better. You will learn so much of this book and at the same time will connect a deeper level with the word of God as it relates to being an amazing dad.

Book Review - Wisdom for Dad: Advice for Dad In 140 Characters or Less

Wisdom for Dad: Advice for Dad In 140 Characters or Less

 photo disclaimer2_zps8af35ac1.jpg


About the Book
By accessing the social web and the power of the dad crowd, Wisdom For Dad cuts through the clutter to deliver brief, witty, snippets of wisdom every dad will appreciate. With 85K plus Twitter Followers (@dudetodad), popular author/blogger Hugh Weber delivers a terrific follow-up to Dude to Dad that again aims to help ordinary dudes become extraordinary dads.

Given that dads today communicate primarily via texts, tweets, and Facebook status updates, Wisdom For Dad features a compilation of more than 100 of the funniest, most inspiring, and notable posts geared toward today's generation of dads to help them as they journey through fatherhood.


My Take on the Book
This was a fun book that really captured the true essence of being a father. As a father myself I know that I don't have a lot of time to be able to spend on parenting books, however, this book gives you so much wisdom and so little words. The book itself is broken down into small kernels of knowledge, 140 characters at a time.

The other share some great insights into what being a dad really means, and he shares it in a way that is both lighthearted and full of thought. The book itself is set up to provide direct, hands-on advice and resources for any father that picks up this book. The author shares both experiences and sage wisdom that will help any new or old father to become even stronger in their role.

All-in-all this was a great book that I would recommend giving to any father, as he will completely appreciate it.
