Blue Orange Games

We were first introduced to Blue Orange Games when I was sent the game Gobblet to review from Heirloom Wooden Toys (a fantastic store by the way!) back in February. It’s a fun strategy game like Tic-Tac-Toe and it has become a family favorite!


Using durable materials, Blue Orange pledges to produce high quality, eco-friendly games.

As always, we remain committed to planting two trees for each one used in game construction.


A couple of sample games we were sent…


Tell Tale

Using cards with a variety of images ranging from the charming to the ordinary, encompassing a range of situations, players improvise stories.

Take a journey into storyland… Whether engaged in a friendly contest or creating a story together, you will love the way Tell Tale gives your imagination a chance to shine.
7 great family games and thousands of short stories to tell are included in this tin.


Spot It

There is always one, and only one, matching symbol between any 2 cards in this party game.
Spot it and you win!

A sharp eye and a little bit of speed is all it takes to become a Spot it! master.



Are you game family?


Blue Orange sent me a sample of these games and all opinions are my own.

Yummy Goodies from Great Harvest Bread

Back home there was a Great Harvest Bread down the street from my work. Every week or two one of the girls would bring in a fresh cinnamon roll for breakfast. Gosh this thing was scrumptious! It was so big and gooey that we had to eat it with a fork. That is when she would share!

They opened one up here in town and I hadn’t had a chance to visit until I received a coupon for a free loaf of bread. That got me moving in the right direction! I knew I was in for a treat and was anxious to see what kind of bread I was going to get. My boys LOVE fresh bread and I was excited to share with them!

If you don’t know Great Harvest Bread they are dedicated to the traditional ways of bread making. We’re a ‘low tech,’ old fashioned, scratch bakery. We use pure, wholesome ingredients. We add no fats, oils or preservatives. Each loaf is kneaded by hand.


But like the cinnamon roll they have other goodies too! The first thing I noticed when I walked into our local bakery was the people sitting at tables and eating. They serve coffee, along with their baked goods, and sandwiches at lunch time!

The large cookies first caught my eye and I knew I needed them. I first ordered a couple of oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. YUM!

Then on to the bread. I asked if they had any kind of cheese bread and the girl quickly pointed out the bread called Popeye. It’s a loaf made with spinach, red peppers, and parmesan cheese. I said yes please!

I have really really enjoyed the bread. One of my kids doesn’t care for it, but my other two, including baby love it like me. We cut up a slice and eat it for snack. Can I say YUM again?!


I am very happy to be re-introduced to Great Harvest Bread again and believe me when I say I will be going back again and again!



Each store is locally own and has their own website. Ours has their bread and sweets schedule on there which I think is great! You can find your store HERE.
