24 Hour Results with The TB Blood Test | #TBBloodTest #ad #ic

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for the TB Blood Test.  I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation. 

Every other year, I put off becoming Volunteer at my children's school.  Why?  They require a TB test.  I am completely vaccinated against all of the possible communicable diseases but this disease does not have a vaccination.  Unlike every other test, until now, the TB test was done in one very inconvenient matter.

I would have to take time off work to run to the doctor(in my case a 20 minute drive) and have an injection under skin after a long wait in the waiting room.  While this isn't a huge deal, what is a big deal is that 2 days later, I have to go back.  That is 2 days taken away from my work and family.  Time that I could have already been helping out in the classroom!

I love helping out in my kids classes but I put it off every time resulting in less time in the classroom.

There is a break through test that will change all of it!  The TB Blood Test will allow us busy parents to go to a doctor once and have the results within 24 hours!  No returning back to the doctor to show your arm.  You have NO idea how much this makes me happy!

Facts About Tuberculosis:

  • Every 3 seconds someone is infected
  • Every 21 seconds, someone dies of TB
  • 30% of the population is infected with TB
The stats scare me!  I always knew that we had to be tested but not the why.  With the new test, it will be SO much easier to keep my family and friends safe from this horrible disease.

Why should you get the blood test?

The TB Blood Test
  • Efficient
  • Accurate results
  • Cutting edge
  • Clear-cut results
  • VERY fast results
  • Only 3 mL of blood required

The TB Skin Test
  • Time burden of multiple visits
  • False positives
  • Outdated
  • Subjective results
Ask your doctor about the TB Blood Test today and stop putting off getting in the classroom!  Our teachers can use all the help they can get.

Fly Tying Tool: Taking the Mess Out of Fly Fishing | #Flyfishing #FlyTying #ad

FreedomWild Outdoors LLC

It is no secret that my family loves to fish.  We are always looking for a better way to catch more fish while keeping our sanity alive.  One thing that we don't get a chance to do as often as we like is fly-fishing.  It is hard to keep track of all of the small feather-tied fly lures and with children, organization is key.

My father used to go on week long trips to Mono Lake, California and New Zealand to try his hand at fly-fishing.  I remember seeing his beautiful flies spread around his work bench in a jumble of feathers, hooks and string.  At the time, I didn't understand the love that went into each fly that was a work of art.  In fact, my sister loved the flies so much, she cut the barbs of 2 and made earrings out of them.

A new app on iTunes was brought to my attention to make fly-fishing easier.  The Savvy Fly Tying Tool is a must have for anglers who tie their own flies.  How do you keep track of which flies you have?  Is your tackle box as messy as my fathers?

The Savvy Fly Tying Tool helps:

  • See what fly tying supplies you have on hand at a glance
  • Give you quick access to your favorite fly patterns which you can take a picture of
  • Stores tackle box information with flies to see availability
  • Smart Shopping List helps you create a shopping list based on your favorite flies
    • Helps you keep track of what supplies you need to make your favorite fly patterns
    • Stores the supplies per patterned fly so you buy only what you need

Fly tying is an art that has been around since the 15th Century and there are SO many different ways and patterns to flies.  Why make your art more difficult that it has to be?  Keep track of all of your patterns, flies and more with this new modern day application.  

Whether you are on a dream fly-fishing trip to New Zealand or fly-fishing in the ocean catching sail-fish, this app will help keep you organized and catching more fish.

You can purchase the Savvy Fly Tying Tool at the iTunes App Store for here for only $1.99.

6 NEW Bacon Filled Items at Stacked | @FoodWellBuilt #BaconMonth

Bacon Month

Bacon, one of the main reasons why I can never be a vegetarian.  In all seriousness, I have never met a bacon item I haven't liked.  STACKED invited me to their Cerritos location to test out a few new bacon recipes I had never had the pleasure of meeting.  

Since my husband is also a huge fan, I felt obligated to share with him... okay, it was a date.  

My husband had never had the pleasure of enjoying the Candied Bacon and I wasn't to keen on sharing mine.  Luckily, ALL of the Bacon items were garnished with it.  My husband might have lost a finger or two otherwise.  LOL

Did you know that STACKED has a great selection of Craft Beers?  Try this Beer Rack and see what your favorite is. 

Choose 4 to sample out of 16 beers.  I particularly like the Hefeweisen.  

We started off with our favorite, the Candied Bacon.  Let it bring you back to dipping your bacon into maple syrup as a kid(and adults).  It melts in your mouth with a perfect crispness.  I could eat it all day.

We all need to eat our vegetables right?  The Southwestern BLT Salad was next with avacado, cheese, corn, tomatoes and candied bacon topped with a spicy chipotle dressing.   I would reccomend dressing on the side unless you really like the heat.
