Home Decor at its Finest with Lush Decor for Less + $200 GC Giveaway 1/28-2/16/15

I received product credit for facilitating this review and giveaway. All opinions are my own.

Lush Decor is a manufacturer of high-end products, such as comforters, quilts, window treatments, shower curtains, etc. at reasonable prices. You'll find a variety of styles, plus the every so popular anthropological style...less the high costs. 

For my product selection, I chose this 3-piece BOHO STRIPE Quilt. I love the turquoise/tangerine color mix. My husband thought it was a bit too bright for his taste, but I know it will be very nice and snugly when it's time for bed!! It's machine washable and reversible too...which I did not realize until I received it. This quilt retails for $249, but sells for only $85 with free shipping. Shipping is free with a $50 or more order.


Lush Decor has several quilts, blackout curtains, bamboo throws, teen window curtains, and more to choose from. I love their style and their prices...perhaps you would too. Take a look!!

Our Big Sky Montana Vacation July 2014 - Days 5 & 6

Day 5 - Old Faithful and Yellowstone National Park

This is what our drive into the park looked like the whole way there. We stopped a couple of times to see the view and take pictures.

Look right in middle of the'll see a Bald Eagle. Everyone...and I mean everyone stopped to get this shot....only to be stopped by Park Rangers. It's against policy to stop in middle of road for anything!!

So many geysers to see along the path.

A Park Ranger teaching us what geysers are and about Old Faithful. Below, we are getting Brody's JR Ranger book signed so he can get his Jr Ranger badge.

 This girl is going over the workbook with him and asking him questions to make sure he did what was required to get the Jr Ranger badge.

Getting sworn in.

Brody is now a Yellowstone National Park Jr. Ranger!! There's 3 badges a kid can get. This is the first for his age group.

Day 6 - A down we did crafts and probably swam and walk around.

I found this craft on another blog and made sure I brought all supplies to make it.
They are alligators!!! Mommie and baby too!!

Okay, see Days 7, 8 & 9 next.

Start Your Engines! But First...Have You Checked the Oil?

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #DropShopAndOil #CollectiveBias

Wouldn't you agree that oil in cars is like water in our bodies? It's a must-have to run smooth! So start your engines...but make sure you check the oil first! To keep my Yukon running smoothly I use Pennzoil because it's a name I can trust, and for convenience, I go to my local Walmart Auto Center so I can shop while I wait

I'm an avid oil changer girl!! My dad always told me to take care of my car and it will take care of you!! We get many things done at our Walmart Auto Center as they are fast, convenient, and less expensive than other places. I love the fact that I can shop while I no doubt I get my oil changed there too. I use Pennzoil only as it's a name that has been around a long long time. I've used it since I first starting driving...many many years ago!! 

I absolutely love how my Yukon tells me when it needs an oil change. I'm surprised at myself that I waited this long!

I selected the Pennzoil High Mileage Vehicle oil because my car has over 81,000 miles. This type oil will help reduce leaks and oil consumption in worn or higher mileage engines. It's also a motor oil that is specifically designed for new or late model vehicles with over 75,000 miles, to help keep the engines running clean and going strong for a long time. A perfect match for my Yukon.

Did you know?
    • All Pennzoil products help clean out sludge lesser oils leave behind.
    • Pennzoil is designed for complete protection and will allow you to drive an extra of 550 miles per year vs. a dirty engine.
    • No other motor oil provides better protection from friction.
    • Pennzoil Warranty: Pennzoil offers a free warranty that covers 15 engine parts that may fail due to engine wear or which experience abnormal wear due to friction. (For more information, check out the Pennzoil Warranty Site)
    • You can save money by getting your oil changed at Walmart!!

    With the High Mileage oil change option, my car also got some added TLC from the Auto Center. They will check all fluid levels, wash outside windows, vacuum carpet (yeah!), check tire pressure, headlight & mini bulb check, and did a battery check. This TLC, along with the oil change is very important to me because my husband is not always around to make sure my car is running at its best, so I have to take the initiative to get it done myself. Glad too, that I was able to do some #DropShopAndOil!!!

    Below is the current price of oil changes available at the Walmart Auto Center in Roanoke, 

    If you like to change your own oil, (we do not!), here's a current promotion from Ibotta (a free mobile savings app). **Get $5 off one 5-quart bottle of Pennzoil Platinum with PurePlus Technology by visiting this website

    So don't forget to give your car regular oil changes to keep it running smooth and be sure to use a motor oil you can trust - PENNZOILStart Your Engines with no problem...and by all means #DropShopAndOil at your local Walmart Auto Center today. Your car WILL thank you. Mine did!

    Here's an awesome Giveaway to enter. Someone is going to be LUCKY!!

    Our Big Sky Montana Vacation July 2014 - Days 3 & 4

    I'm almost embarrassed that it took me this long to post the rest of our trip and all these beautiful pictures. No excuses. But here's more.

    Day 3 - Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman, MT

    A friend of Tracy's said that we should definitely go here since we like visiting Museums. We have an annual membership to the Fort Worth Museum of Science & History so we got in free. What a fun day. This Museum is definitely a must-see.

    Museum of the Rockies features the world's largest collection of dinosaur fossils and research. You can image that Brody was in awww.

    This home was adjacent to the Museum and worth taking a stroll down the path to see the house and all the beautiful flowers and veggies they have planted. There's also a few volunteers who dress up like the old days to answer any questions anyone may have.

    This nice lady asked if Brody wanted to help her picks peas.

    Very proud of his crop!!

    That evening we visited with a friend of Tracy's. Frank, his wife, a few horses and their dog, Lucy live way out in Wilsall, MT where there's no cell phone reception...I mean way out there. Frank is a part-time hunting guide at Vermejo Park Ranch where he and Tracy met a  few years back.

    Frank and Brody hanging out. Brody looking at the beautiful mountains and scenery with the binoculars Frank gave to him.

    Brody and Lucy became friends.

    Day 4 - Big Sky Ski Area - Our evening Expedition up to the mountains on The Lone Peak Expedition

        While waiting on our ride Brody enjoyed some fun time playing by (and in) a nearby pond.    

    A beautiful and serene view up in the mountains. This place is so gorgeous. We were in ahhh the whole ride.

    A walk around. The tour guide took Brody up on a rocky mountain, and then brought him back down on her back...he got tired. We weren't about to go up there on those rocks.

    I enjoyed the scenery and the quietness of it all.

    If you ever get a chance to visit any place in Montana in the summertime, DO IT!!! It's just that's coming from a Texan...where it's not very pretty least not like the above!!!

    Okay, I still have Days  5-9 to post, so stay tuned. In case you got here before you read Days 1 & 2, click here to read
