Congrats to Kelly Tupick Product received. Opinions are certainly my own! Guess what? Summer is nearly here!! Woohoo!!! Time to pull out those flip flops and sandals and go play outside in that sun! Yay! I certainly own a few pairs of sandals and flip flops, but non are as comfy as my newest pair of flip flops! They are the ABEO B.I.O.system Balboa Sandals sold at The Walking Company and I think I may never take them off my adorable feet!! Okay, my feet are ANYTHING but adorable, but come on, at least my new sandals/flip flops make them a bit cuter, right? Perhaps people will look at my sandals and not my feet! What Are My Thoughts? These sandals (or should I say flip flops?) are very comfortable. They fit my feet like a glove. They are snug and the arch part fits my arch to a T. There is no room for wiggle (they are NOT tight, just super fitting and comfy) and that leaves no room for giving me sores. I also really like all of the colors that these come in. I … [Read more...]

Harvest Snaps: A healthy And Gluten-Free Baked Snack

photo 1 (48)

Congrats to Traci Jarrett, Julie Lynn Bickham and Georgie Cassakena *Product and/or compensation was received. Opinions are my own. I never knew how much a child could eat, until I had my own kids. Oh my goodness, they can EAT. Snacking during the day and then three square meals a day, we are grocery shopping ALL THE TIME! Sure they have some unhealthy things, I cannot monitor EVERYTHING that goes into their pie holes, but I certainly try to! I always try and have healthy snacks available to them, after school. So, when they come in the door and say 'Mom, I am hungry!' I can reach in the fridge and pull out some fresh, cut up veggies or fruits. Those get nibbled up usually, and soon they are out the door playing. That is a GOOD day though... Not every day is THAT easy, sigh.. But, when you are a parent  you have to roll with the punches and make the best of every situation, right? Or at least we TRY. So, when my kids feel like salty snacks, I now have a snack I don't … [Read more...]

This post was created in partnership with Dole. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Since summer is nearly here, the weather is getting warmer! Yay! With warmer weather, comes water slides, pools, ice cream cones and my favorite, fruit smoothies!! DOLE has tons of wonderful frozen fruits to make smoothies. I love grabbing a few of these bags, every time I go shopping, so that I have some on hand to make smoothies on any given day. My kids love the smoothies too, so this is a big thing in our home, to make. We got the Dole Dark Sweet Cherries, Blackberries, Pineapple Chunks, Wildly Nutritious Tropical Fruit and the Wildly Nutritious Mixed Fruit. We also got a jug of Dole 100% Juice, Orange, Peach, Mango! Yum! So, our fruit smoothie this time, had about a cup of the Dole 100% Juice Orange, Peach, Mango Juice, a hand full of the Pineapple Chunks, handful of the Wildly Nutritious Tropical Medley Fruit, one little under a half of a banana and a dash of … [Read more...]

Jockey® Skimmies® slipshorts: Because There Is More To Comfort Than Sweatpants!

2014-06-02_1102

Congrats to Theresa Janke I participated in this program on behalf of Jockey and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own I don't think I have ever really been a 'sweatpants' gal. But, I am definitely a 'yoga pants' gal! I wear them ALL the time when I am at home! Out of the house, nah, I opt for jeans :) But, since it is summertime and things are heating up, I want to be even more comfy and not so confined to my yoga pants, know what I mean? I want total comfort! And, I want my legs to be able to BREATH! Especially when I workout in the mornings, from the comfort of my home! Hey, I think it is time the women of America join Jockey to redefine what comfort means, because there’s more to comfort than sweatpants. Don't you agree?! I received a super comfy pair of Jockey® Skimmies® slipshorts to check out. Oh my goodness, they are soo comfortable. Not only are they comfy though, they don't have any panty lines!! Yay! I HATE panty lines showing when I wear my yoga pants! … [Read more...]

Simplify Your Summer with Dawn Hand Renewal! #MyDawnSummer

2014-06-05_1239

Congrats to Carla M. Dunn *This review was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Dawn. I was provided the featured product free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% mine I do not mind washing my dishes by hand. It has never bothered me at all. In fact, the last two houses I lived in, did not have a dish washer, so I was left with no choice but to hand wash all my dishes. I actually preferred it anyways as they just seemed cleaner to me. I always chose a really good dish soap that would really clean my dishes. But I was left with dried out hands :/ That was always a problem for me. If only Dawn Hand Renewal dish soap was around back then! I do have a dishwasher now, in this house, but I still find myself actually washing all of the dishes before putting them inside the dishwasher. Talk about clean dishes when they come out! But, it is totally worth it to me and my dishes are beautiful! Now that I do know about Dawn Hand Renewal Dish Soap, I use … [Read more...]

San Diego Hat Company: Spring/Summer 2014 collection of kids’ hats (Review)

PicMonkey Collage

*Product received. Opinions are mine. Summertime is THE time to cover that head and shield it from that fierce sun! I can't count how many times I have gone out in that blaring sun, only to come back in, hours later with a burnt head! OUCH! No fun! So now that I am older and much more decrepit, I am sure to wear hats more, when I am outdoors. My kids are wearing hats too, I make sure of that! The San Diego Hat Company has some very cute hats. I had a chance to browse through the adorable Spring/Summer 2014 Collection of kids hats and got to review two! So adorable! They arrived rather quickly and my son and daughter quickly grabbed up which one they wanted. And, they wore them for the rest of the evening! So cute! My little baby boy even snagged up one of them when his brother was at school! Nice to know he likes them too! I got the Kids Fidel hat and the Skull Driver Hat. Both are way too cute and even cuter on my babies :) The Skull Driver cap is fun. I love the skull … [Read more...]
