I was so excited to have a chance to try out the new NERF Sports FIREVISION Football!  My kids and husband had so much fun playing together!

What's the Big Deal? 

The NERF Sports FIREVISION Football comes with 2 "frames" that when activated causes the football to have a glowing affect.  Which you can play day or night and it works!  One frame is green and the other is red.  The football was easy to throw even for my 8 and 4 year old.  The frames were fun, but after a while the kids were annoyed with them so they continued to play without the frames.  And I had to keep telling the kids not to point their frame lights at my eyes lol  This would be a great gift for any kid, teenager, or adult.

Here is what NERF says about this product:

FIREVISION SPORTS features incredible Microprism Technology, which creates a glowing streak of light, day or night. When you activate your FIREVISION ball with a pair of cool FIREVISION Frames, you reveal a glow with a range over 100 feet/30 meters. The FIREVISION football is performance engineered to generate spiraling streaks of light whenever you turn on your FIREVISION Frames and throw it to a friend. Put glow in your game with the power of Microprism Technology and the FIREVISION Football!

Features: • Bright blazing light
• FIREVISION Frames activate your ultra-bright glowing ball, day or night!
• No charging
• Battery-powered FIREVISION Frames let you play for hours without stopping to charge up the glow!
• Microprism Technology blazes with energy
• Glow with a range of more than 100 feet/30 meters!
• The ball glows a different color depending on whether you wear red or green FIREVISION Frames!
Ages 6 and up.
CAUTION: Discontinue use if reflective material begins to separate.
NOTE: Not for play in complete darkness. Know your surroundings and clear the area of obstructions before each use.

We loved it!  It certainly is a step up from the original NERF football..and puts a more exciting spin on playing!

You can purchase this at any major retailer! For approximately $19.99 - $24.99

A little about me...

It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
