Grillbot Review- Great Fathers Day Gift!! #Grillbot

**All opinions expressed are 100% my own.  I was not compensate for this post.  I was given product for review purposes.**



The grillbot, is the world's first automatic grill cleaning robot! Launched January 13, 2014, Grillbot is here to make your life easier.

Our mission is to enrich your life, by simplifying it. We believe by taking the grunt work out of cleaning your grill, it will leave you with more time to enjoy your friends, family, and the party! Simply place the grillbot on your grill, press a button and you're done! The grillbot does all the grill cleaning for you. No more scrubbing! A grillbot is the easy-to-use and fun to watch — a fully-automated device that makes grill cleaning possible with just the push of a button.

I am a technology junkie.  Whenever something new and interesting comes out, I can't wait to give it a try.  When I heard about the Grillbot, and how it makes grill cleaning easier, I was very excited.  Personally I hate cleaning the grill after cooking, and usually leave that one up to Hubs!!


The Grillbot is an extremely easy piece of technology to use.  All it requires is a push of a button!!  The Grillbot comes with three timed settings; 10, 20 and 30 minutes.  Push once for 10 minutes, twice for 20 minutes, and three times for 30 minutes.  Make sure you close the lid on your grill, and then off she goes.  

Check out this fun video of the Grillbot in action I shot while looking through an opening on my grill.


Here is a picture of what my grill looked like before using the Grillbot.


Here is the after picture.


I used the Grillbot for 30 minutes.  I think it did a pretty good job!!  My grill is older, and well used.  The Grillbot made a huge difference.

The one downside to the Grillbot that I have found is that there is no safety shut off.  I opened the grill lid at one point and picked up the Grillbot while it was still running.  It did not shut off.  That makes me a little nervous when you have small children.  I would make sure that you use the Grillbot when children are not around.

Other then that, I think the Grillbot is a great investment for any avid griller.  It would make a perfect Fathers Day gift as well!!  

You can purchase your own Grillbot through their website here, or at these online stores; Amazon, Home Depot, Lowes and Best Buy.

Mighty Mug Review And ~~Giveaway~~

**All opinions expressed are 100% my own.  I was not compensated for this post.  I was given product for review purposes.**


Developed by a team of industrial designers and mechanical engineers, Mighty Mug, is the world's only Mug that grips to your desk when knocked into, but lifts naturally.  Featured in over 100 publications and television shows worldwide, Mighty Mug and it's patented Smartgrip Technology is sure to excite and amaze your friends and family.

What is SmartGrip Technology?
 SmartGrip Technology is what allows Mighty Mug to withstand accidental bumps by gripping down to any smooth, flat surface when knocked into.

When I used to work for the Post Office, one of the things that drove me nuts about my truck was that it had no cup holders.  Most of us would get creative and find places to keep our coffee mugs, but 9 out of 10 times, the mugs would fall over, and there goes our much needed coffee.  

When Mighty Mug asked me to review their mugs that don't tip over, my first thought was this will be a quick review.  No way are these mugs not going to tip over.  I soon learned I needed to eat my words!!





I was sent three mugs to check out- Mighty Mug Go, Mighty Mug Ice, and Mighty Mug Solo.  You can check out my review video below with special guest star Kevin!!




I am loving these mugs, and can't wait to take them with us camping next month!!  With Father's Day right around the corner, these mugs would make a perfect gift for any dad!!

Check out the complete collection of Mighty Mugs here.  You can get hot and cold mugs in a large variety of colors!!

How would you like to win one??  The good folks at Mighty Mug are giving one lucky reader a Mighty Mug of their choice!!  Pretty cool huh!!

Why I Have Been So Quiet........

If you are reading this, I am very grateful that you still take the time to read my site!!  I know over the last couple of months, I have been pretty quiet.  I would like to tell you why, and to let you know that it was hopefully only temporary!!

This past September, my dad had his 3rd major heart attack.  He needed quadruple bypass surgery.  He was in a terrific hospital but sadly it was 45 minutes away from me.  We spent a lot of time driving back and forth to visit him.  He did very well with the surgery, and recovered well.  

In October, I started to have some more medical problems myself.  I spent a lot of time in doctors offices before I was diagnosed with Bladder Prolapse.  I wont bore you with details, but it was very painful to deal with, and sitting down was not much of an option.  

In December I went in for surgery to fix the prolapse.  It was a complicated surgery and involved 6 separate incisions.  Recovery time took over 6 weeks, and I am still having issues 4 months later.

Come February, we thought things were going to calm down for awhile.  We were sadly mistaken.  My dad started having stomach pains, and went to the doctor.  They found a tumor on one of his Kidneys.  The tumor turned out to be cancerous.  He scheduled surgery to have the whole kidney removed on the third week of April.

On the second week of April, I started to have severe abdominal cramping and pain.  It progressively got worse over a three day period, and my Husband finally made me go to the hospital.  I was diagnosed with Gastroenteritis, and Bacterial Colonitis.  I ended up being hospitalized for five days.  

My poor family had to spend one week visiting me in the hospital, and then the next week visiting my dad.  

I am still having some complications, but I am getting better.  My dad is doing really well too.  Even though we had all these scares, we are both still here!!

Thank you for sticking around with me these last couple months, and I have some awesome things in store for you in the next couple weeks!!  

Stay tuned!!

Mean Green Cleaners Help With Spring Cleaning! #MeanGreen #Clean

**All opinion expressed are 100% my own.  I was compensated for this post, and given products for review purposes.**


Mean Green is known as a national and international, superior all-purpose cleaner for the toughest jobs around your house, your garage or your work. The iconic "Super Strength" formula is made with a unique blend of detergents and solvents that form a powerful heavy duty cleaner and degreaser. Lab tests prove it beats nearly every other cleaner on nearly every stain. And because it’s biodegradable, non-toxic and contains no acid, ammonia, or bleach, you can feel safe using it just about anywhere, inside and out.

Well this seems kind of silly to say right now with a snow storm blowing through, but it is Spring!!  I have already started the dreaded but appreciated task of spring cleaning.  I always start with the bathrooms (the smallest rooms,) and leave the kitchen (the hardest to clean) for last.

This year, I am working with Mean Green on a series of posts all about cleaning, and how hopefully their products will make the horrible chores easier!!




I was sent a variety of products to try, and starting with the bathroom, their Mildew Destroyer was first on my list.  I do not have tiles in my shower where water can get to them.  I do have decorative tiles at the top, but unless you are trying to get those wet, they are usually safe!!  However, the shower spout, handle and walls do get quite icky with soap scum.  I hate cleaning the shower and scrubbing for what seems like hours.  I gave Mean Greens Mildew Destroyer a shot to see how well it works to prevent me from getting tennis elbow!!




Mean Green Mildew Destroyer is a must have for cleaning and disinfecting areas with mildew and soap scum like the bathroom, kitchen, patio and more. Mildew Destroyer is a bleach-based cleaner and disinfectant. It destroys what is growing in dark, damp spaces.

It has been used to clean and disinfect areas which are common for mold, mildew, athlete’s foot, salmonella, Staphylococcus aureus (bacteria) and soap scum. Those spaces are showers, bathtubs, sinks, toilets, tile and grout, floors and garbage cans.

Mildew Destroyer is also effective against Salmonella enterica and Staphylococcus aureus in 30 seconds.

I am not going to lie, I have not cleaned the shower in a couple weeks.  It was not as bad as it could have been, but still embarrassing!! The Mildew Destroyer is easy to use, just spray on, wait a couple minutes and then wipe off.  I started with spraying down the spout and one corner of the shower that seemed to be the ickiest!!  



The cleaner does have a heavy bleach smell to it, so make sure your room is well ventilated.  I also used gloves to prevent the smell from staying on my hands for weeks.  I sprayed the cleaner on and waited a couple minutes to wipe away.  I was hoping just a regular sponge would be enough, but sadly it was not.  I did need steal wool to remove some of the yuck.  Here's the great part though; it required very little scrubbing!!  I was not crying in pain after cleaning the shower!!



Overall I am very impressed with the Mildew Destroyer, and it will be a steeple in my cleaning arsenal!!

After the shower, I decided to clean a mess that has been driving me nuts for days; the very dreaded microwave.  No, it is not in the bathroom (all though my parents had one in theirs for awhile!! (it was put in there while they were redoing their kitchen,)) but it really needed a cleaning and I couldn't stand it anymore!!  I will ask that you please don't judge me for my mess (I know it's bad!! lol)




The cleaner best used for this nastiness is Mean Greens Orange Champ.  The mess is fairly new, so I should not need industrial cleaner yet!!  The Orange Champ works well on a multitude of surfaces, and the best part is that it smells great!!




Mean Green Orange Champ is a multi-purpose, multi-surface cleaner and degreaser with orange power. Orange Champ cuts through tough grease and grime leaving a fresh citrus aroma, a scent of clean. It gives a powerful clean that is safe on most washable surfaces throughout your family’s home.

I sprayed the cleaner on the mess, and left it for about two minutes.  I then wiped it clean, and rinsed it with water.  All it needed was a gentle wipe.  No scrubbing!!

I think it did a pretty good job, what do you think??  The Orange Champ can be used on a wide variety of products from stoves, to sinks, to even floors!!




So far I am really enjoying the Mean Green products, and my spring cleaning is coming along much faster!!  

You can purchase Mean Green products at Walmart, Family Dollar, Dollar General or on Amazon.  Make sure you follow them on Facebook and Twitter to keep tabs on new products and contests, and keep checking back here for more reviews!!
