Pop On Pals

My son has a vivid imagination and loves to use it. He has collected ribbons and string from around the house and calls them his slippery snakes. He entertains himself with this stuff for hours! When Team Mom offered to send Pop On Pals for him to try out I was curious to see where his imagination would take him. Pop on Pals are small toys that have interchangeable rings so that the character can become a fireman, dancer, etc.
He has had a great time playing with the Amusement park play set. He uses the car for the roller coaster both on the play set and on any hard surface that he can roll hit. He also really likes the dragon ride. He hasn't gotten the knack of the ferris wheel yet but that is my favorite part of the playset. 

The only thing that is missing with the playset is another pal. With two pals we'd  be able to utilize the ferris wheel more effectively - you place a pal in a lever and push to make the wheel move so it'd be nice to see another pal riding the ferris wheel at the same time. Otherwise, we are happy with the toys. I'd actually like to purchase some of the vehicles that are available because I am sure that he'd love playing with them.

Disclosure: We were sent the Pop on Pals amusement park playset for review purposes and all opinions are 100% our own.

How am I better than ever?

This question posed by Dove and Twittermoms is pretty easy to answer for me. I am now 48 pounds lighter than I was 7 months ago and I have shared my journey with the world. I feel great about my accomplishments and am actually in better physical condition than I've been in in well over a decade! I have also shared my struggle with weight and depression  so that other women can understand that they are not alone and support is out there. It is my hope that sharing my story will help others to get the proper treatment that they need and truly take care of themselves, inside and out. 

I plan on entering the Dove goFresh contest because I believe all of my hard work is deserving of a spa vacation in Sedona. Of course you can enter too but I am hoping that I win!
