REVIEW: Mrs. Gigglebelly Is Coming For Tea App + FREE Video Field Trips for Kids!

This is such a cute story!  Donna Guthrie is a children's author and creator of Meet Me At the Corner, Virtual Field Trips for Kids.  I was able to get this app to review, and I can see why it was featured in "New and Noteworthy" iPad books on US iTunes Store.

It's a fun story about a busy Mom making time for her daughter.  As I was reading it to my daughter I was thinking I should be more like her. :):)  Time is all they want, and sometimes it's the hardest thing to give.  Such a great reminder, I'm glad it's on my phone!  I love having quality books for my kids with me wherever I go.  It's nice for the Doctor's office alone!

The app looks just like a book, you can read it or have it read to you. (I love that feature!  Sometimes my throat gets tired from these long stories my daughter is interested in now.)  Mrs. Gigglebelly Is Coming For Tea is .99 on iTunes.

Another great feature of Meet Me At the Corner is the video field trips for kids.  They have:
A Kid's History of the Ukuele
A Kid's Introduction to Llamas
Interview with a Tuskegee Airman
Interview with a Fashion Designer
A Kid's History of Clowns and Clowning
and LOTS more...

I received this app for free in order to review it.  No other compensation was received.  All opinions are my own.

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."

The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
