Before you Buy it! See why I Tried it!

I’m a product tester! That means I try things and places before during and after it has hit the market.As a work from home mom, it’s a perfect opportunity for me to try items/events before I buy them and help my mom friends save money and time by giving them my trusted advice. After all, when you have 9 children and a veteran husband, you tend to learn the value of money, time and quality discernment.

I have tried things from Disney On Ice, Sesame Street Live, Cirque Du Soleil QuidamChick Fil A, Credible CravingsKIND bars, Monster Jam, Disney Jr Live, Ringling Brothers, Monkey Joe’s, Sonic Care, New Balance, Huggies, Belly Bar   to DOVE! Not name dropping at all, but those are some remarkable brands. It was an honor to work with each of them. It takes a lot to be trusted with grand brands such as these.

I wanna share my latest  testing jobs with you and encourage you to try these products yourself. Luckily all of them are winners. TODAY, you are a winner too because I have a free gift for you at the end of this post. (assuming that you like good food and free stuff!)

Sesame Street Live: Make a New Friend Review

Sesame Street Live: Make a New Friend introduces Grover’s friend Chamki, who is visiting from India. Grover has only one day to spend with her and wants to make it special, so he’s made a long list of all the things he wants to do. Of course, he’s listed more things than they could possibly accomplish in one day – and Chamki just wants to spend time with him and his friends.


The newest show from Sesame Street Live, “Make a New Friend” is playing at the Bojangles Arena through May 25th 2015. The show is fun, upbeat, and makes for a fun family outing in the QC! Sesame Street Live andCharlotte Best Mom blogger

I grew up watching – and loving – Sesame Street as a child. I know it taught me so many things – and I love being able to share the experience with my kids as well.

Attending Sesame Street Live always feels like a bit of a reunion with my own childhood, and it makes it all the more special to be able to see my kids smile, laugh and dance along with some of my old friends.

One of my the boys, favorite parts is when Chamki, Grovers friend teaches them a special Indian dance, which they all perform together at the end of the show. But in the meantime, Grover feels a little lost and left out when things don’t go as he had planned.

Sesame Street Live: Make a New Friend is a lesson in being a friend. We learn that even if we’re different, we can still enjoy spending time together. Even grownups can use a reminder like that every now and then.
