A Sweet Relish Package from Tales of a Mountain Mama

One of the benefits of entering the 25 Outdoorsy Moms Competition was reading blogs by other outdoorsy moms. One I particularly like is Tales of a Mountain Mama.
Amelia is based in Yellowstone National Park and not only loves being outside with her kids, but also reviewing gear and giving it some of it away. I signed up for one of her giveaways, and lo and behold, I won! This was a fantastic giveaway sponsored by Sweet Relish, a website that gives you ideas of products and lets you put together your own lists.

I couldn't wait for the package to arrive. When it did, I thought the packaging was really cute.

Desert Boy was eager to help me unpack it and when he saw The Real Deal Brazil Hat, he put it on immediately. It' made from tarps used in the Amazon to cover products on trucks, so each hat is original. It also has the added benefit of looking cool, so it doesn't matter how much more we wear it or get it dirty. Choosing who gets to wear it may be the hardest task!

The other products were quite interesting: Zipz to hold your sunglasses (or glasses in place), a Ruff bowl that is compact and easy to take along on dog walks and to provide a drinking bowl for your dog, disinfectant spray and wipes, and Stuffitts to help dry out and de-smell wet boots (wow, we have just a few of those around here!)

I grabbed the disinfectant spray and wipes to put in the car right away. Thymol is the active ingredient, which is the same ingredient I use in my Seventh Generation disinfectant. We like that a lot lot! The spray has 225 sprays in it, which I think is a much nicer way to apply than a goopy alcohol-based disinfectant.

Well, I feel on top of the world having won this giveaway and getting such neat prizes. Thank you, Amelia! If you're interested in other outdoorsy gear, be sure to head over to Tales of a Mountain Mama. She has frequent (several a month!) giveaways with really cool gear. She also has all sorts of great advice about how to enjoy the outdoors with your kids.

Thanks also to Sweet Relish! This looks like a really cool website.

p.s. I actually have a giveaway right now, for a free digital magazine subscription from Zinio. If you haven't signed up yet, do so quick, it's almost over!
