Together for our future #lovehou

***This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own.***

This past Saturday September 24th Academy Sports + Outdoors and the Houston Astros announced a partnership that will bring a lot of joy to many little ones in our City. They Donated 1,938 tickets to the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Houston in commemoration of Academy's founding year.

Carlos Correa the Short Stop for the Houston Astros was present and helped 38 kids pick out new Astros Gear. Carlos Correa went above and beyond and signed the Gear. The Store was filled with smiles thanks to Academy for providing them with a $50 shopping spree.
Academy also donated $38,000 to Correa's charity partner, Houston Children's Charity, as part of the Home Runs for Houston.

Academy has been in the community since 1938 and the first retailer that comes to my mind when in need of anything for our sports and outdoor needs. Being at this event brought so many memories of my childhood when my dad would take me. I always got lost looking at all the sporting goods.  
Do you know of any great places in Houston to make sports and outdoor memories? Academy will be on the lookout for post use #lovehou to share with us!!!
Thanks to Academy you have the opportunity to Win a $50 gift card!!!

Keep your cool!!! (Mission Review)

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own.

Its Texas yall so hot and humid is probably what your getting when you are outside. It is also sports season!!! Zoë and Ever both play soccer and i love to cheer them on but the hardest part for me has always been being comfortable in this Texas weather. I needed a solution so when I received the Mission products I was static!!! Finally something to keep me cool!!! Not only was I thinking about myself but Ever and Zoë hot weather can make you feel sick due to dehydration, overheating and many other factors. 

Per Mission "Enduracool: Mission's instant cooling technology allows you to maximize athletic performance during competition and training. Our proprietary technology slows the rate of evaporation within it's series of hollow-core fibers which cools to 30 degrees below average body temperature."

The Mission products have been incorporated in my daily routines. From going to the Zoo,cutting grass, exercising and cheering on my favorite teams. They have many products too choose from. I you are someone that needs to have a coordinated outfit you can still manage that; the cooling towels come in different colors and patterns!!! I cannot wait to buy more colors. You can check them out on their website  I have many items in mind for my holiday shopping. Now if only we could get some kid size socks and shirts!!!

Reflecting Cooling Headband
Enduracool Microfiber Cooling Towel

How to Activate?

  • Soak the towel
  • After completely soaking the fabric,wring out the excess water
  • Snap the fabric three times to promote airflow and activate the cooling technology

The Mission products have really cool technology that helps you stay cool and comfortable. The fabric is lightweight,chemical free and its UPF50!!! The Technology never washes out and helps you defend against dust and wind. When i'm with my baby Isabella i don't wet it but it does come in handy to shield her from the wind if needed or to just put it over her head if i don't have a hat handy for her. The Mission products are for the whole family we are definitely getting a good use. My dads birthday is coming up and will definitely get him the Cooling Bucket hat great for his fishing adventures!!! 

Mission currently has some items on sale go ahead and give them a try!!! Oh and good luck on choosing a color or pattern they are all fabulous!!!
