Miracle Fruit - PlantOGram

Have you heard of Miracle Fruit, Miracle berry or maybe Miracle Fruit Trees? If you have, then lucky you because it's pretty awesome!

But if you're like me and you have no idea what it is let me share some exciting discoveries I've recently made! Thanks to my friends at PlantOGram.com I had the chance to try out this amazing fruit! I'm so excited to share my experience with you guys, it truly has been...AMAZING!

First of all, I'll start by sharing that PlantOGram.com has many exotic & tropical fruit trees which you can order online and have shipped to yourself or as a special gift for someone else. And when I say "SPECIAL" gift, I really mean "SPECIAL". The tree arrives at your door in a tall, narrow, bright-green box. On the outside there's a card that says "A Gift For You" & a pamphlet with instructions on how to care for your plant. When you take the tree out of the box it has a burlap wrapped base with a large colorful bow (mine was bright pink & gorgeous).

Now moving on to the actual tree I received which is the "Miracle Fruit Tree". It arrived with fruit already on it! Some were bright red & ready to pick, while others were still green and will ripen soon! There are also lots of flowers where new fruit will be coming in so you definitely get a lot to choose from! 

Since we had never heard of this tree, my son and I read the information provided & we learned that these fruit have an enzyme that coat your tongue preventing you from tasting anything sour. We were intrigued! The only thing we had on hand to test it out was a green lime which we prepared for our live taste test! Of course, we recorded a video of our first impressions for your enjoyment! 


OMG! This is one of the most amazing things we've ever experienced. How is it that I'm almost 40 years old and I'd never even heard of this Miracle Fruit?! Well, you learn something new every day, right? My son sure did, and he was so happy when he realized we have our very own tree that we can enjoy for years to come! That is another wonderful thing about this gift, it keeps on giving! 

We also squeezed some lime into a cup of water & drank it after tasting the Miracle Fruit & it was the perfect lemonade with NO ADDED SUGAR! We've got a growing list of sour foods we want to try next: strawberries, grapefruit, etc. There are so many possibilities!

Can you think of someone in your life who'd love to receive this special gift? Maybe you want to treat yourself to something extra special? Well, be sure to add "Miracle Fruit Tree" from Plantogram.com to your Wish List! I hope you find something you love!

BzzAgent: BIC Velocity Mechanical Pencils

We're back with another exciting campaign from BzzAgent! With back to school just around the corner, these BIC Velocity Mechanical Pencils have arrived at a perfect time. They are colorful and cute with 5 different colors to choose from: purple, pink, blue, yellow & orange! My favorite is the purple, of course. I also love that they come with lead & eraser refills!

They write smooth & really dark without having to press down on the pencil. The lead is strong and didn't break easily when I pressed down to test it out. The eraser is smooth and doesn't smudge, but I did notice on the writing where I pressed down too hard on the lead, you could still see a bit of the writing after I erased it. It definitely worked better on the writing where I didn't press down really hard on the lead. The good thing is, you don't actually have to press down hard at all, so it works really well!

My son was also very surprised by how smooth & comfortable they are to use!

Check out our first impressions video!

21 Already?

How quickly time seems to pass. It seems like only yesterday, I found out I was having a baby and today we are celebrating his 21st birthday! I don't feel a day over 18 & yet 21 years have passed by and with them lots of ups and downs.




I am thankful for my son's life. God has blessed us greatly and I pray He continues to guide him as he travels through this thing we call life.
