Giveaway: Almondina® Guilt-Free Cookies


Along my journey to  healthier lifestyle, I have discovered a big secret: You can still have that snack, food or treat. Just make it smaller - or thinner.  Almondina® Guilt-Free Cookies employ that same philosphy. These are thin cookies laced with sliced almonds and they come in so many different varieties that they'll never get boring. Almonds are one of my favorite foods. That crunchy texture is delicious and almonds are natural and so good for you.  They have no cholesterol and no added … [Read more...]

March GlossyBox Review and a Sneak Peak for May!


Subscription box services have been popping up all over the place. We've reviewed a few, and this one really blew me away. I opened the pretty pink and black package after the deliveryman rung. Other than the package aesthetics, the first thing I noticed about my GlossyBox was this powerful scent coming from inside. My senses were intrigued, and I opened the box to find the full sized product, an Alex And Ani energy soap bar which retails for $14. Also inside were samples of the following … [Read more...]

Color Cables™Review & Giveaway


My phone cable was not something I considered part of my home's style -- I figured they only came in the standard white.  Well, they come in lots of fun colors and do so much more!  These unique cables were created with the fundamental belief that form must always compliment function.   Typical cables only do one thing right ...charge or sync. They're not made to last, they're not personal, they get usurped by your family members, they're too short and you can't find them in the dark.   Taking a … [Read more...]

One Dish Slow Cooker Pot Roast Recipe

One dish slow cooker pot roast

Slow cooker dinners can be a lifesaver. While I truly enjoy cooking and don't mind doing the work for a great meal, sometimes it's nice to let someone else do the cooking. Or something else. I was up sick all night last night, so it was great to be able to toss dinner into the crock pot this morning and have dinner ready to eat by 5:30. There are a gazillion recipes on the internet that involve your crock pot, a piece of meat and a sauce of some sort. Some recipes are a hit, and others fall … [Read more...]

Ross Dress for Less Giveaway!


I've loved to shop for as long as I can remember, but something I love even more than spending money, is saving money.

One place I'm guaranteed to find things I want that are 20-60% less than what I should be paying is at Ross Dress for Less. When I visited my local store a few weeks ago, it was on a Monday.

Wordless Wednesday: The Yankees Win!


Last Saturday we took the kids to Yankee Stadium for the Yankees vs. Red Sox game. This was the first pro ball game for the kids and it was an absolutely gorgeous day for it. The last time Kevin and I were there we had passes to get into the Mohegan Sun bar which was really awesome, but I think I prefer being outside, especially when the weather is this nice! And of course...the Yankees won. :0) … [Read more...]

5 Best Snacks in Magic Kingdom and What to Bring Home


During this last trip to Walt Disney World we were on the Disney Dining Plan. We loved the food in Magic Kingdom. From the quick-service meals to the table service restaurants, most everything was delicious and top-quality. A few places that we were looking forward to trying were unfortunately closed, but thankfully there were lots of others to choose from. But hands down, our favorite way to eat through the park is by snacking. These were our favorite snacks to enjoy at Magic Kingdom. Mickey … [Read more...]

The Learning Journey Shop and Learn Register Giveaway


I'm always on the hunt for educational toys for my girls and for gifts.  One of my favorite brands is The Learning Journey.  My older daughter had the Funtime Activity Ladybug when she was a baby and she absolutely loved playing with it.  With so many toys already in the house, I was looking for something to work with the kitchen my daughter already loves playing in - and a cash register seemed like the perfect idea so that she could play "supermarket." Kids love to role play and the Shop and … [Read more...]
