Ocean Nasal Care & Kinoko GIVEAWAY!!

December 29, 2010

It’s winter, which means allergies (especially in the allergy capital known as Austin, TX!), Flu, & colds. What better way to protect yourself from these ailments than by using Ocean Nasal Care Products & Kinoko AHCC! They are saline sprays & vitamins for you to use to keep your nostrils from becoming dry and irritated & helps your immune system fight the cold & flu bugs. Best of all, they have a spray for children! Eric, Bella, & I are all suffering from allergies that come with living in Austin, mainly the Cedar Fever… so we were super excited to try these products out! 


I was given an opportunity to review Ocean Nasal Care & Kinoko Products this week. When I got the box, I immediately opened it to see the Ocean Premium Nasal Spray, the Ocean Saline Nasal Care Spray for Kids, and the Kinoko AHCC vitamins! Eric had just gotten home as well and actually tried it before me! Once I was able to get a hold of it, I noticed an immediate difference. My nose didn’t feel rough and dry, but actually moisturized! Eric even said to me that he noticed how great his nose & head felt minutes after using the spray. We both also started taking the Kinoko AHCC vitamins before every meal to help boost our immune system. Here’s each product in much more detail…


As the indoor heat goes on and air travel plans are made, doctors recommend preventative nasal care as a way to help ward off common winter illnesses, and the most trusted brand for doing that is OCEAN & KINOKO.
KINOKO AHCC offers a wonderful vitamin to fight the flu & colds:
   Kinoko AHCC:

The last thing you need right now is the flu! Kinoko AHCC contains Active Hexose Correlated Compound (AHCC) - the world’s most researched natural immune ingredient, supported by more than 50 human studies. AHCC is made from the roots of Japanese medicinal mushrooms and a new clinical study at Michigan State University showed that AHCC enhances the effectiveness of the seasonal flu shot. So whether you are getting a flu shot or skipping it, make AHCC a part of your immune arsenal to fend off viruses both during the flu season and all year round.

Oh What A Christmas!

December 26, 2010

We had a wonderful 3 day Christmas celebration with both of our families!  Christmas Eve we went to an absolutely breathtaking Christmas Eve service at our church, Bella got to celebrate Jesus' Birthday with cupcakes during the service. after church we headed to Grandma & Grandpa's.  We had Christmas dinner, then opened presents.  Afterwards, Bella was extremely tired so she went to bed, then we played games for prizes until after midnight!  We had so much fun with all of Eric's family and Bella loved everything she got from everyone.

Christmas morning promptly at 6:15 a.m., we woke Bella up and had her go downstairs to see what Santa left her.  She got a yellow ride on tractor, Toy Story 3, Belle doll, sit & spin, etc.  Her eyes lit up as she opened her gifts!  Santa also ate almost all her cookies, drank all her milk, and Rudolph & his pals ate the carrots Bella & Daddy stuck in the grass for them!

After opening all of her gifts, we drove to my Dad's to celebrate with my family.  We pretty much just ate all day Christmas Day and celebrated today.  We all had a wonderful time spending time together, eating lunch, & watching movies! We all got wonderful gifts and Bella was super excited for her dolls & toys! She even got Despicable Me from Aunt Tanya & Cousin Austyn!

We just got home after a 4 hour drive in traffic, opened all her gifts so she could play with them, then went to Grandma's for the night.  Bella didn't feel too well today and woke up with a slight fever.  We got her allergy medicine & Tylenol going, which made her feel better, but she didn't eat a thing all day... we've been checking with Grandma and she seems to be doing well.  E & I are relaxing tonight, so I will be posting pictures tomorrow hopefully!

Merry Christmas 2010!

Wishing You a Very Merry Christmas

December 22, 2010

Since I will be cleaning, baking, & packing all day tomorrow, I wanted to wish everyone and your families a very Merry Christmas!  We hope everyone around the world has a wonderful Christmas! 

We will be going to church on Christmas Eve before heading to Grandma & Grandpa's to celebrate with Eric's family.  We always eat dinner, open gifts, then play a ton of games for prizes!  It makes Christmas so much fun & a special tradition.  Christmas morning we are driving to Dallas to celebrate with my family at Papa's house.  We'll be eating tons of food, opening presents, and watching our favorite old Christmas movies together.  So much fun & such a great way to celebrate.  I can't wait for everything to start and for Bella to watch Norad on TV and see where Santa is!  My favorite part is going to be watching her at church getting to know the real meaning of Christmas with a live Nativity scene! 

Many pictures will be taken and posted here next week, but until then...

Merry Christmas!

With Love,
My Munoz Family!

Weekend Wrap Up

Let me start at the beginning, Friday night... after dinner we decided to take it easy, and watched TV all night.  Bella actually got sleepy and was out by 8:30 p.m. on her own!  That's exciting!!
Saturday we took Bella to Grandma & Grandpa's house in the morning, then headed to finish any and everything Christmas.  We found an awesome tractor Bella can ride on & got it as the last present via Santa!  She's going to go crazy when she opens it!  (Which by the way was by far the worst present I've ever had to wrap!!)  Afterwards, we went and got sushi for lunch and was planning on just walking around, but the crowds were hideous so we came straight back home.  Saturday night we went to the Draft House and watched Tron in 3D.  It was our 1st 3D movie, and it was actually pretty good!  I'm totally not a Sci-fi person, but overall great movie and good effects. 

Sunday we just did the normal cleaning & grocery shopping.  I cannot believe Christmas is 5 days away!! I am so excited and so is Bella!!  Now I have to go to World Market at lunch to get her teachers their Christmas presents.  I always get her teachers a nice ornament each for Christmas. Have a great week!!

Sit & Spin Review!

December 18, 2010

Remember when you were a kid and you got to play on the sit and spin?  I absolutely LOVED spinning round & round on it until I was dizzy.  Well now they are back & better than ever!

The new Sit & Spin has a sturdy base & allows for the child to decide how fast or slow they want to go.  Bella just loves hers, and I think your child will too!  Best of all, they run for only $19.99!!  How great is that?!

For more information go to the Hasbro Website.  They come in all different colors and styles! (Bella's is of course pink & purple!)

Happy Weekend!

December 17, 2010

Friday took so long to get here, I feel like it's almost Sunday!! We've got tons and tons of errands to run tomorrow, mainly to get stocking stuffers, and one last gift to help Santa with!  Grandma & Grandpa just got back into town, so we are dropping Bella off Saturday morning for the day to get everything done. 

Saturday night we are going to celebrate our anniversary.  Nothing too big, just going to the Alamo Draft House to see Tron & have dinner.  This will be our 1st 3D movie at the theater!  Woo! 

Sunday we're going to church and then coming home to clean the house.  A HUGE cleaning!  I cannot leave our house dirty when we're about to have Christmas!  I am overly crazy about having a sparkling clean house (which let me tell you is HARD with an almost 4 year old running around!), so Sunday works well for us to make it sparkle again! 

We hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!  I'll be posting once or twice before Christmas, but just in case... Merry Christmas!!

Pediped Review!

December 16, 2010

When Bella was younger (ages 6 months - 2 years old) all she wore for shoes were Pedipeds.  They were wonderful for learning to walk, and had such cute styles for girls (and boys!) to choose from!  Thanks to Coupons are Great I just found out that for every pair you buy, they donate a pair to a child in need!!  How awesome is that?!?!  And just in time for Christmas! 


Just go to the Pediped Website to look & purchase a new pair of shoes for your little one!

11 Years!

August 2010
11 years ago today I met my soul mate & best friend.  Eric & I have been together since freshman year of college, and I couldn't imagine my life without him!  He's the best friend I could ever ask for, & the best Daddy for our daughter!  We truly have made such a wonderful life for ourselves, & I am so happy to say that after 11 years together I am still madly in love with him! 

Happy 11th Anniversary LOVE!

Swagg App Review!

December 15, 2010


So I LOVE getting gift cards, but my wallet hates it! Luckily, a friend told me about the SWAGG for your IPhone or Android!  It keeps track of all of your gift cards, reward cards, and reward points!  I was able to get rid of over 15 cards in my wallet!  Also with the holidays fast approaching, what a wonderful thing to have once you get all those wonderful gift cards you receive under the Christmas tree! 

I downloaded the app, went online to log into everything & was done within minutes!  It's super easy & works wonderfully!!

Here's the best part... for every person who downloads the SWAGG app on their phone, SWAGG will donate $1 to Stand Up for Cancer up to $125,000!!  How awesome is that?! 

Here's what you need to do:

From your iPhone, iPod touch and iPad devices: Download SWAGG app

From your Android devices: Download SWAGG app

From your web enabled mobile phone: http://www.swagg.com/

From your PC: http://www.swagg.com/


Disclosure:  I was offered the opportunity to review the SWAGG app and given a $20.00 credit to see how the app works. I was in no way compensated to write a positive or favorable review, the opinions expressed are My Munoz Family's personal opinion!

Christmas Time Is Here!

December 12, 2010

This weekend was completely Christmas oriented, & Bella just loved it!  I'll break it down by the day!

Friday night: After dinner we headed to downtown Round Rock (about a 2 minute drive from our home!) to see the lighting of the streets.  There were TONS of people there and we aren't big on huge crowds with Bella.  So we walked around for a bit, got her a glow light stick thing, got a cookie from Mrs. Claus, then headed to get ice cream before going home.  It was such a fun experience overall though!

Bella sporting her new winter hat!  Ready to go!

Bella & Mrs. Claus!  So cute!

Enjoying her new light stick!

Since the lines for face painting were long, we came home and painted her face for her, she LOVED it!!

Saturday night: We went to the Domain to walk around and meet Santa.  It was a quick meeting, but afterwards the Domain had a wonderful fireworks show!  The cold front had just come in, so we headed quickly home after the fireworks.  Eric & I actually got to watch a movie at home!  (Been months since we've seen any movies!)

Bella with Santa, I only got 1 picture and her eyes were closed!


Sunday: We went to church in the morning, then did a few errands. Afterwards, Bella took a nap before we went to see Santa one last time!  


Bella with Santa #2 (she didn't notice!)
She told him the only thing she wants is a big tractor!! She never forgets!
Overall, such a fun family weekend!  Makes me super excited for Christmas to get here!

We had so much fun watching her sing and getting to see what she's been doing at school!  Last night we went to the Round Rock Christmas Lighting! Bella loved it!  We're heading to meet Santa today & drop off her Christmas list at Macy's!  (They donate $1 to  Make A Wish Foundation for every Santa letter they receive!)  Have a great weekend!  More pictures to come on Sunday!!

Christmas Show!

December 10, 2010

Bella had her annual Christmas show at her school last night and we had so much fun!  She was super anxious to go and we still had an hour and a half left, so we called Grandma & Grandpa and met them at a restaurant beforehand, then they came with us to the show. 

We got to her school at 7:15 p.m. and it was packed!  Tons of cute kiddos with their Christmas gear on.  (Bella actually was a little under dressed in her white sweater dress, red leggings, & brown boots!  She's not into the huge Christmas dresses yet! She still looked adorable as always!) They got to play with their friends, show us all what she's made lately, and then they sang 3 songs with both classes!  They were wonderful!! Bella was her normal shy self, but seemed to like being in front of an audience after a minute or so. 

We also got to look at her letter to Santa they made at school and she asked for only 1 thing... a pink tractor!! All the other girls asked for dolls or girly things... not my Bella... a pink tractor!  Too funny and so Belle!

After they finished singing we all went to the 50's diner at the back of the school for juice & cookies.  Overall it was a wonderful night & Bella did great!  I will be posting pictures & video tonight once I get them uploaded! 

Have a great weekend!  We're heading to downtown Round Rock tonight for a Christmas celebration complete with the Children giving to Children parade & giving Santa Bella's Christmas list!  Too much fun ahead!
