Monster Jam World Finals 2016!


Growing up in Vegas I have always heard about Monster Jam, I've seen commercials but something has always been in the way and we just couldn't attend, until now. On behalf of US Family Guide, we decided to go as a family, we got the kids out of school early so that we could walk around and check out the "Party in the Pits". It sounded exciting and fun. The kids were thrilled to get out of school early and head out to Sam Boyd Stadium made it that much better.
Now, mind you none of us have ever gone to this and we had no idea what to expect. We walked in and you have your normal shops where  you can get your shirts, hats and so much more but the part that we really liked was the actual Monster Trucks. That's right you could actually walk right up to them, take your picture and one of them you could even get in and get a picture with you "driving" (pretend).
If that wasn't cool enough they had remote control monster trucks that you could play with. The kids loved that.
I tried to get some pictures of them doing tricks off the ramp but they didn't come out. :(

The very next tent had 
Xbox Monster Jam video games that you could try. At that point I was excited that they had shade and chairs because it might be March but it was hot outside! 
Now, don't judge me but I said before that we had never gone to Monster Jam so we didn't know the racers. I did see characters walking around that people were taking pictures with and didn't really think much about it. When I saw Cruella de Vil, I did think that she must be burning up in that fur coat but then we were so excited to see all the trucks and I moved on. Well, guess what! She was there because of the Monster Mutt Dalmatian truck of course. 



I don't want to brag or anything but I guess I am pretty good at that Video Game. I did score the fastest time. I rock!
This is all before the races started. Can you image! We are all having a great time and we haven't even seen one race. The track was not what I expected. When I hear race I just think that the vehicles are going around and around but that was not the case here. 
The racers each start on the outside and then turn into the middle area where you see the white "finish" line. It is quick. We did see a couple of fires in the trucks and even a couple that flipped. That is where the mom came out from me. Everyone was screaming and cheering with joy and excitement and I was thinking, "is he/she ok?" "Did you see them get out of the truck?"


We really had a fantastic time. Everyone was talking about how incredible the Saturday freestyle performance is. In fact they said if we enjoyed the races then we would LOVE the freestyle. Next year we plan on going to the Saturday freestyle performance. 
For the finale Max D jumped over 5 monster trucks. It was crazy and he said he was going to jump over 6 trucks next time.

If you are planning an adventure for the entire family be sure to mark your calendars for next years Monster Jam World Finals here in Las Vegas.

This Premium Starter Kit comes with: 



  • 11 Bottles of the most popular oils
  • Dewdrop diffuser
  • Oil Sample Packets
  • Oil Sample Bottles
  • Oil Sample Sharing Cards
  • 2 Packets of NingXia Red

  • a set of Essential Oil Labels ($3.95 value) to keep your oils organized!
  • a set of Quick Reference Guides ($4.95 value)!
  • an Essential Oil Starter Guide!
  • You’ll also get access to our incredible Facebook groups with members to support you as you start and continue on your oily journey!

If you are ready to buy a starter kit, then be sure to sign up as a wholesale member (with one of the premium starter kits) through the instructions below to get your freebies!



1. Head over to the Young Living page here and fill out your information.

2. Be sure the “Wholesale Member” option is checked so that you don’t end up paying retail prices (which is 24% more).

3. Be sure the “sponsor ID” and “enroller id” say 2521058, that way I can send you all your FREE goodies.

4. If you do not feel comfortable putting in your social security number (this is only for tax purposes if you decide to turn this into a business) then you can get an EIN from the IRS in just a few seconds here and use that number instead (the IRS just needs to be able to connect some number with you for tax purposes).   They need a Social Security Number or an EIN because if you make $600 or more per year selling Young Living products, you will receive a 1099 form in the mail (which is required by law). Young Living will never share this info with anyone.

5. Select which starter kit you want to get. To get the freebies, you’ll need to check the box next to the Premium Starter Kit.  You can get the kit that’s $150 or you can get the kit that’s $160 with the Bamboo Diffuser.

6. I’d recommend skipping Step 3 (Optional) part of the sign-up process. You’ll get an email with more details on that part of things after you sign up (if you’re going to be purchasing products monthly then it’s a great program that will give you credit back with each order and save you on shipping costs). We all love FREE products.

7. Go through the checkout process.

8. Be sure to send an email to Iheartoils1@gmail.com to let me know that you signed up through this promotion so that I can send you your freebies!


Frequently Asked Questions: 



Does signing up make me a "distributor"?

Nope! You are not required to sell anything at all to anyone. When you become a wholesale member, you get a special link that you can share with friends and get credit from their purchases, but there are no minimum sales amounts at all. In fact, 90% of the wholesale members in Young Living don’t do the business side at all. They are buying from Young Living because of the quality alone.

Am I required to make a minimum purchase each month? 
There are absolutely NO minimum monthly purchase requirements. To remain a wholesale member, you have to make $50 worth of purchases per year to keep your membership. But if there’s a year that you don’t make a $50 purchase, you can reinstate your wholesale membership discount by just placing a $50 order.

If you do find yourself making regular purchases each month, then Young Living has a rewards program (called Essential Rewards) where you can make a nice percentage back in product credit each month on all of your purchases. So that’s a neat program to join if you find that you *want* to purchase regularly (but it’s not a requirement for being a wholesale member).

The Good Dinosaur Movie Review


SYNOPSIS:

"The Good Dinosaur" asks the question: What if the asteroid that forever changed life on Earth missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct?  Pixar Animation Studios takes you on an epic journey into the world of dinosaurs where an Apatosaurus named Arlo (voice of Raymond Ochoa) makes an unlikely human friend. While traveling through a harsh and mysterious landscape, Arlo learns the power of confronting his fears and discovers what he is truly capable of.

My Review:
We were invited to attend the Good Dinosaur and I have to admit that my daughter and I were really excited. The previews are fabulous and we couldn't wait for a little "girl time".

As the movie started we meet Arlo, his brother, sister and parents who are still alive because an asteroid missed earth, millions of years ago. I don't believe in evolution but this is a cartoon and I took it at that.

Arlo and his family own a farm and actually grow corn as their food source.  Arlo is the youngest one in the family and seems to be scared of everything. I mean everything! His father was trying his best to teach him and encourage him that he could be brave and fight through the fear to make his mark in this world. Some of the things he said had me thinking about my own insecurities and fears and how I need to get past them. Which is good and bad, I have lots of work to do in my own life.
Then the movie kind took a turn. In true Disney fashion a parent has to die and leave the family to survive without them. It's sad but I saw it coming.  
There was a part in the movie that was not appropriate at all. Arlo and Spot (his "human" friend) eat some berries and they appear to be high. Normally, I don't think that part would have bugged me but when my 8 year old turned to me and asked why are they laughing that hard and acting like that, it really makes you think.  I know my kid's are going to have questions about drugs, and I need to be proactive about it but I guess I just wasn't prepared to have to answer anything in the middle of a Pixar/Disney film.

The scenery of the film is beautiful with large mountains and a river. The detail is gorgeous, you almost forget that you are watching a cartoon. I am not a huge 3D fan to begin with but some of the parts had me a little sick by moving too fast with the 3D effects. My daughter took her glasses off a couple of times. 

The Good Dionsaur didn't live up to my expectations. I'd recommend waiting for it to come out on dvd.
