I am so elated to be doing this review for Custom Photo Mug By Presto Photo!
Father's Day is right around the corner and I don't know a dad yet that doesn't LOVE personalized gifts especially photos of their children on coffee/tea mugs.
My husband doesn't have children of his own but if you tell him his precious Maury isn't a child of his he'd tell you-you're wrong!

So, for Father's Day, I wanted to give my husband a gift I know he'll absolutely without a doubt love and cherish for many years.  What better way for your dad, step-dad, husband, grandfather, etc. to enjoy a cup of their favorite morning beverage and a photo of their adoring fans. 
Presto Photo has so many different templates and designs you can use for that special personal touch.
As you can see I added 2 of Maury's photos with 2 of Presto Photo's template designs. I was able to add text as well.
There's no limit to your creativeness!

Here are a few photo ideas you can use to personalize your mug today but you better hurry as Father's Day is soon approaching!
Give the gift of love with memories on a Presto Photo Mug!

  • Father, grandfather, etc. holding newborn
  • Father at child's graduation
  • Father at child's wedding
  • Your favorite photo of your child with dad
  • Father and his "fur-baby"
I can't wait for Father's Day to give my husband his custom photo mug from his fur-baby Maury!
He's going to love it!

Review: Tankless Water Heater By Rinnai- The Hot Way To Heat Water

My Review Of Rinnai Hot Water Heater

This post contains affiliate links and I may make a small commission used to support this blog if the product is ordered via the links in this post.

When my husband and I purchased our 1928 2-story Tudor home back in 2009 we knew we needed to save money for updates and needed repairs. We had just moved from a 3 bedroom apartment in Kansas to a 5 bedroom home in Kansas City, Missouri. When I first walked in for the viewing of the home I fell in love. Sure it had some "character" but what made me fall in love was the old creaky floors. Wait, are floors suppose to creek?? To me, it felt like home! My husband just looked at me like, "You have no idea what you're getting us into". He fell in love with it as well when he saw the beautiful old red-brick fireplace. I can't describe the house except that for us older generation it's like stepping back in time. A time where everything was real! The floors were made of actual wood, the wall made of plaster, not sheetrock. The sinks are porcelain, not stainless steel. The glass in the kitchen window pane had a ripple effect common of old windows back in the day. If these walls could talk! 
Anyways, back to saving money. The first thing we wanted to do was start saving money as this old home was going to have some updates done to help save money without taking away the rustic charm our home had.
We started researching tankless water heaters as we had heard that they ONLY heat up the water that's being used not re-heating the water in the conventional tank water heater over and over again.
If you're ever in your basement and hear your water heater shutting off and on and no one is using hot water then you know it's either using unnecessary electricity or natural gas. It's heating up water you're not using. Can you imagine how much money and electricity/gas is being wasted when you're not home for a week or so while you're on vacation?
So we decided to invest in a tankless water heater which cost around $2,000 to purchase and have it installed. 
The whole installation took maybe 4 hrs. for Anthony Plumbing Heating and Cooling
to finish the installation. I love these guys! Very professional and as you can see in the photos they know their business. These photos have been recently taken and the tankless is almost 10 years old now. I love how everything is labeled not just color coded. 
Everything you need to know about the Rinnai Tankless Water Heater 
is right on the side of the tank.
Here are more examples of Input, Gas Pressure, Thermal Efficiency, Emissions, etc.

More important WARNINGS and SAFETY of using and operating the tankless water heater.

If you know someone who is a certified plumber and can install one of the gems then I highly suggest purchasing one like this from Amazon. 

There is only one down-side that we've come to work around and that is 2 or more appliances cannot be running at the same time that requires hot water. Meaning, if you're taking a hot shower and running the dishwasher or washer your shower might not have the same water pressure as it would without running multiple hot water items at the same time. Only run one hot water appliance at a time.
Other than that we love our Rinnai Tankless Hotwater Heater!!
Plus, it saves lots of room in your basement as it's installed off the floor out of the way.

TerraMax Pro Premium Wild Alaska Salmon Oil For Dogs and Cats #terramaxpro

TerraMax Pro Premium Wild Alaska Salmon Oil For Dogs and Cats

This post also contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

When I heard that I'd be doing a review for TerraMax Pro's Premium Wild Alaska Salmon Oil I was super excited! Why? Because everyone knows that Salmon Oil is loaded with Omega 3's and very healthy for dogs and cats. Just a few of the things TerraMax Pro's salmon oil can do for your pets: 

*EPA, one of the two omega 3 fatty acids in salmon oil, acts as an anti-inflammatory, which can help with any condition that causes inflammation of the heart, kidneys, skin, and joints. This is important as I have an aging Chihuahua "Chico" and some days he can really feel his age. Jumping up and off the couch can put a lot of strain on a little dog's joints over time.

*DHA, the other omega 3 fatty acid in salmon oil, is important for brain and eye development in puppies and kittens and is recommended for pregnant or nursing pets.

*Contains over 15 Omega's, including 3, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9!

* It can help ease inflammation due to allergies, and reduce dry, itchy skin. This can be an effective way to potentially decrease the incidence of hot spots.

 *It promotes a shiny, healthy coat, and may reduce shedding (For cats, this may mean fewer hairballs, since they won't pick up as many loose hairs while grooming). Do you ever feel that when you're vacuuming or sweeping in my case, that you could almost create another cat with the fur left behind? TerraMax Pro Wild Alaska Salmon Oil will help solve that dilemma!  

* Veterinarian Recommended! This is a HUGE plus for my pets.

Here is the TerraMax Pro Premium Wild Alaska Salmon Oil package after opening the mailer it came from.
Sealed so no unexpected accidents while in the mail. Love that TerraMax Pro company is very cautious about their product!

Here is Maury inspecting for freshness and quality before opening. I was very satisfied with the excellent quality of the bottle and pump. This bottle is NOT flimsy and thin as you find all every other product in. Very important if one were to drop the bottle on the hard ground.

"Dedicated to Helping Your Pets Live a Happier, Healthier,  And Longer Life!"

Chico, my picky eater, and aging Chihuahua is also giving it once over, seeing what all the excitement is all about.
I was so happy and super overjoyed that this little guy liked eating TerraMax Premium Wild Alaska Salmon Oil! Animals know and sense when food is not right or contains artificial ingredients which I'm happy to tell you that this product is ALL-NATURAL! 
Only the finest salmon oil is used for TerraMax Pro's Premium Wild Alaskan Salmon Oil. Wild caught exclusively from the pristine waters of Alaska, using only sustainable and environmentally responsible fishing methods. The salmon oil is then purified with one of the best purification methods that exist, called Molecular Distillation. 

Below is the video I created of Maury and Chio enjoying TerraMax Pro's Premium Wild Alaska Salmon Oil.

Merle Norman Purifying Peel Off Charcoal Mask

Merle Norman Purifying Peel Off Charcoal Mask

So here I am, a few weeks before my 52nd birthday and concerned about the appearance of my face. You know, wrinkles and all. I'm not a vain person by no means but I do believe in at least try to keep my face looking as healthy as possible. I have large facial pores (thanks mom) that I find hard to keep clean with all the product I use since, well, I'm getting older and my skin just doesn't have that peachy glow it once had nor the collagen. So I decided to give this sample of Merle Norman Purifying Peel Off Charcoal Mask a try. I was a little hesitant about putting charcoal on my face because its, you know, black and charcoal. "But wait", I thought to myself. "Charcoal is known for removing poisons in the body." This could be a good thing!  
I applied the charcoal tar looking product on my face, starting at my forehead then to my temples and so on. My first reaction was the cooling effect it had on my face after about a minute. When it started to dry I felt it tighten a little. "Sweet, a mini facelift!" I was thinking. I left it on my face till it was completely dry, maybe 45 min. I know that's longer than it needed to be on but I was kinda busy with the blog and such that I didn't see a rush. "Get all those impurities off my face!" I thought to myself.
I was totally mind blown when I was removing the mask from my forehead. It was removing all in one piece, I can see stuff on the mask that was in my pores! Whoah! Check that out! It got a majority of the gunk that was in my pores and whatever else that was on my face. I was highly impressed with this product! I did, however, dampen a washcloth to remove product leftover from the outlining areas of my face and that wasn't difficult at all. I LOVE this mask!! 
Here are a few tips:
  • Makes sure you have washed your face beforehand with tepid water.
  • Leave on face till COMPLETELY dry
  • Rinse with cool water to make sure those pores close.
  • Use a damp washcloth to easily remove any product left on your face.
  • Use once a week
That's about it! I truly love Merle Norman Purifying Peel Off Charcoal Mask and I know you will too. If you are concerned about looking like, well, not dead, this is well worth the price.

REVIEW: Kong Tugga Wubba Dog Rope Toy

Kong Tugga Wubba Dog Rope Toy

If you have a dog you have to have dog toys. Whether it be stuffed dog toys, hard rubber toys, or rope toys such as the one my Maury has here. Depending on the size of dog you have the toy should be for that size dog. It goes without saying, you wouldn't buy a Teacup Chihuahua a rope toy like this unless it's one of those pint-sized ones who think they are Rottweilers.

It's hard finding the right dog toy that can withstand strong canine teeth. We've bought so many dog toys over the years that we would spend gobs of money on just to have it ripped to shreds in a matter of hours. Like I mentioned before, you want to buy a toy that "fits" the dog. Maury has all but devoured stuffed cute stuffed toys and even those strong animal shaped nylon toys. I don't care what the material is made out of if it's stuffed he will find a way to the stuffing..HaHa!

The Tugga Wubba Dog Rope Toy lasts longer than any other toy we've bought for him and is made of durable ballistic nylon material. The straps at the end remind me of fire hose material which he seems to favor chewing on the most.  This is the perfect interactive toy by far to play with your dog with. Very strong! Kong is known for being the creators of some of the strongest dog toys available in my opinion. Now I'm not saying the Kong Tugga Wubba will last forever but for $6.89 you can bet you will get your money's worth out of this toy.

Yes, I believe we are very happy customers of the Kong Tugga Wubba Dog Rop Toy!
You can purchase your pup his own Tugga in the link provided below.

Thank you for visiting Forever Dreamin' and we hope you enjoyed this review of the
