Toys for my new toy!

I’ve only recently gotten my first GoPro (my husband has had one for awhile), and while neither of us are adventurous or athletic, we both love taking photos and videos and love to record our pets and our road trips. These cameras allow us to do so without worrying about packing an extensive camera bag or collection. I love these wrist straps by MuvePro because I keep them in our glove box, and when we hop out of the car, I can have my camera on my wrist which is easily accessible. I don’t do a lot of boating, so I cannot imagine using the floating band for that, but any time I am near the water, I wear it because frankly, I am clumsy, and if anything I am liable to simply trip or drop it in the ocean, never to be seen again. Hopefully with this on my wrist it won’t go flying, but if it does, the floater should keep it visible (hopefully a better swimmer than I will grab it for me) or else it will remain visible as it floats out to sea :P.

You can find these straps here.

You can see my new action camera (GoPro clone) here.

I received both of the products mentioned above in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Building the yard of our dreams!

My husband and I recently moved into a new home with an amazing yard.  Some landscaping had been done by a previous owner/tenant, and there are trees galore, in fact our back yard is forested, with about 1/3 acre of protected wetlands coming up to within 10 yards of the house.  This makes for some interesting encounters with wildlife (our security cam picked up a VERY large cat near our back door the other night).  But two recent items we received for review are making the spending of time in our yard more pleasurable.  This would be a hammock and a swinging chair.   Both were offered at steep or complete discounts in order for us to provide reviews on Amazon, but the difference they have made in our yard has made me want to review them here as well.

The first is the Zeny(R) Blue Hanging Rope Chair by Natorytain . 

Zeny® Blue Hanging Rope Chair Porch Swing Seat Patio Camping Max. 265 Lbs (Blue, 1)

Lovely chair, and while this is not a photo of it on our patio (I would LOVE that patio), it is how this chair looks.  We have it mounted on a special hanger that my husband built on a tree in our yard.  It holds up to 265 lbs which means it is either for one or two very light individuals.  It is sturdy and well made and just adds a certain fun to our yard.  Very comfortable too!  The only thing I would change would be to have mosquito repellent  built in :P.

The other item is the hammock.  This is the

Driftsun® Patio and Lawn Portable Hammock with Steel Stand (Tropical)

This hammock was assembled very quickly, and is great for napping and enjoying cooler weather in our yard.  It is easy to move and will hold my husband without sagging.  I have always wanted a hammock, and now our yard feels like the yard of my dreams.  All I need to do is grow a green thumb and plant some flowers for next spring and summer. Marigolds would remind me of home and Mom’s rock garden with hens & chickens (the plant not the critters).  These both get five stars from me for their durable construction, as well as their bright colors that coincidentally went quite well with each other.  Hopefully we will have many years with this set up!

My husband received complimentary or discounted samples of these two items in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
