Realtree Coffee wants to make Mother’s and Father’s Day special for the 10 lucky winners who will WIN a 40 count box of Realtree Single Serve Coffee.
5 Winners will be drawn on Mother’s Day and 5 Winners will be drawn on Father’s Day!

Realtree MAX Coffee
Available on Amazon!
Realtree MAX-1 Camo was made for hunting in broad terrain. But one thing it can’t do is give you extra energy when you need it. Good thing there’s Realtree MAX to keep you powered when you’re hunting deer, antelope, and small game, too. Try this double caffeinated coffee as you make your way across the sage-covered hillside or the open prairie.
See Review Here!
Realtree Timber Coffee
Available on Amazon!
Whether you hunt from the tree or the ground, you need tools that work in any situation. And this coffee is one of them. This Realtree Timber medium roast is a rich, smooth, all-purpose brew. Ideal for those early mornings when you’re out tracking game in the woods, but just as good on those days when you’d rather be hunting, too.
See Review Here!



Realtree Blaze Coffee
Available on Amazon!
Here’s a coffee that stands out as much as its namesake camo. There’s no mistaking this Realtree Blaze coffee. Packed with spicy cinnamon flavor, this medium-bodied brew just doesn’t blend in. And you wouldn’t want it any other way.
See Review Here!

Realtree Xtra Coffee
Available on Amazon!
You want a high-octane coffee that works all season long? Well, here it is. Just like the amazingly lifelike Realtree all-season camo, this Extra Bold coffee will have you covered in any situation. With an incredible depth of flavor, it’s a robust dark roast that’s perfect for drinking through all seasons.

Realtree Buckshot Blend Coffee
Available on Amazon!
You want a light roast for those mornings when you’re out game hunting–or just dreaming about it? Here it is. This buckshot blend is light-bodied, smooth, and easy drinking. Kick back, relax, and reload with another cup.

We Are Family #BehindTheBlogger

Behind The Blogger
~ We Are Family ~

My family is so off the realm of what most people think of when they hear the word family. Trying to explain my family in words is even harder. For the sake of this post and everyone’s sanity who reads this, I am going to stick to just my immediate family growing up. A glimpse into my past and why I feel the way I do about family today.

At one point in my life I had 11 siblings. Yep, that says eleven! I have two sisters and one brother from before my parents got divorced. They both remarried while I was still young and I gained two brothers from my step-dad and 3 brothers and 3 sisters from my step-mom..

However also during this time and before their divorce, my dad was in the army and stationed in Korea, my mom was going through somethings of her own and my 3 siblings and I ended up with my grandmother who also had 3 of my cousin living with her. We were all sort of raised as siblings.

Later on around age 9-10 my dad is home from the Army, the divorce is finalized and the new marriages happened. Now have 11 siblings plus my three “cousins” At this point in our lives my 3 siblings and my 3 cousins all moved back in with our parents. Me and my older sister with my dad our new step mom and her three youngest who were in our age range. Our two younger siblings with our mom. My cousins with their mom.

Fast forward to 12yrs old I end up having to move in and my mom as my sister had just recently done that herself, and now I’m living with all 3 of my siblings and my two step brothers.

Fast forward almost a year later, 6 days after my 13th birthday, my dad was shot and killed in a hunting accident. After his funeral I never talked to my step-mom again and my 6 new siblings all of a sudden weren’t my siblings anymore. I know its sounds weird but I was young at the time and that is how it felt. (She later died in my early twenties and I have since found and spoken with my ex-siblings, but its not the same)

Fast forward to age 16 and I moved out of my mom’s house and back in with my grandmother. My older sister and 2 of my cousins were also back living with gram. My gram spent many years raising us 7 kids together that we sort of all felt and still to this day as adults, feel more like siblings than cousins. Our kids call us Aunt and Uncle whether actual aunt uncle or technically cousins.

Growing up in what some would call chaos, was probably one of the best things I love about my childhood. It showed me what family actually is.

Family to me is a group of people who have your back. A group of people who will love you unconditionally while still pushing you to grow and be better. They are the ones you run to when your excited or scared. The ones who dry your tears and share in your happiness. Family is so much more than blood or a name.

So while I might not know what living in a traditional family is like, We Are Family, and I wouldn’t change it for anything.

We Are Family

Package includes: A LOT OF PARTS!
>> Click Here to Purchase on Amazon <<

First and foremost I want to say I am loving my greenhouse and am VERY happy with my purchase. Now that it is fully assembled.

Assembling the product was a HUGE hassle. I read all the reviews prior to purchasing and not one of them complained about the assembly, but I had issues. Fixable issues thanks to the hubby, but still extremely annoying and frustrating when you’re trying to put together.

The instructions were simply a labeled blueprint style image with a parts list. That part did not bother me at all as each section was fully labeled and matched the part list number/letter combinations making it easy to decipher what was what and where they went.

Greenhouse~ Post Contains Affiliate Links ~

The problem I had was after I laid all the parts out and made sure there was nothing missing, there wasn’t and then proceeded to assemble. I followed the blueprint to a “T” and I just could not get the parts to connect flush and even. I went through and traded parts and switched some out for a different piece etc and sometimes it worked and other times not so much.

After finally getting one section of the garden house together I realized that the metal rods were so sharp that when I was inserting them into the plastic connectors, it was scraping down the sides and creating plastic build up and creating a barrier where the rods could not go any further.

After further inspection I realized that not only was that happening but some of the plastic pieces were already filled with flash. Flash is the build up created from the manufacturing process and should have been deburred as they call it.

Greenhouse~ Post Contains Affiliate Links ~

Having a background in manufacturing of many kinds, including plastics, I knew exactly what I was looking at and with the help of my husband we were able to take a flat spade bit and scour the inside of each plastic connector to rid them of the plastic flash and make it easier for the rods to fully insert.

Once we had the problem figured out the rest of the assembly process was simple! So while I am very dissatisfied with having to fix all these plastic connectors, I am beyond thrilled with my finish product.

Once all the issues from above were figured out, assembling the greenhouse was a breeze. The first thing I did was separate all the pieces out and made sure I was not missing anything.

Since it was a little chilly outside I decided to build both sides of the green house in my living room and finished it off outside.

I first lined up all my parts and double checked the blueprint to make sure I had the correct pieces ready to connect to the correct poles. I then proceeded to connect all the pieces together until I reached the top shelf. This whole process took very little time once the issues mentioned above were addressed.

At this point I took the two built side pieces and the rest of the parts outside to continue adding in the top rise and the roof pieces.

Greenhouse~ Post Contains Affiliate Links ~

I am 5ft 4in tall and can easily stand inside with plenty of height left. Attaching the roof pieces was pretty easy but I did have to stand on my tip toes for the very top section. My husband would have had no issues but I wanted to do this by myself. 🙂

Once the metal frame was fully assembled I decided I didn’t really like where I had placed it so I grabbed a couple of the pole sections to lift it up and move it. It moved easily and weights barely anything when empty.

The included shelves do not snap into place or anything like that. They sort of just sit on the metal rods and not very tight. I am only using these for starter plants and seedlings so this does not concern me much, but is mention-able.

The product description says each shelf can hold up to 75 pounds that is a lot and I’m not so sure I would even try, but that is what it boast.

Attaching the plastic cover that was also included in the kit was not as hard as I expected it to be. As I mentioned previously I had read the reviews left by other shoppers and one of them mentioned letting your cover lay in the sun for a few moments to allow the heat to hit it and help it become more pliable and easier to unfold. This made sense to me, so I did follow the reviewers advice and I had no issues unfolding and opening up the outer plastic. No stickiness, no rips or tears, nothing, just easily unfolded.

Once fully unfolded laying in the grass, i saw that the door opening was already zipped closed. So instead of opening this up and putting it on one side at a time, I would leave it zipped closed and put it on like a T-Shirt from the top down. I had my husband grab one side and I grabbed the other and again on my tip toes we got it over the top and with a little maneuvering and shifting were able to pull it down and into place.

The material is a little thinner than a tarp, but thicker than a strong garbage bag if that makes sense. The length is longer than the height of the whole unit making it easy to set these up on blocks or a base if needed or wanted. There are ties on the inside of the cover in various places that help secure the cover to the poles.

At this point I haven’t fully decided where I actually want to place this in my yard, so I have not used stakes or tie back string with this unit yet, but I don’t foresee there being any issues for my use. Both were included in the kit as well.

Overall I am loving this green house, it’s exactly what I wanted. Its nice and small but big enough to walk in and out of easily with trays or pots and planters. This garden house can hold quite a few plants and other garden essentials and for the price I am beyond thrilled with my purchase and have no regrets!
