This one day event is a day to celebrate the wonderful world of home canning with Jarden Home Brands. I joined in on the fun and educational experience last year when home canning was completely new to me. These days, I wouldn't call myself an expert, but thanks to the canning experts sharing tips, tricks and … [Read more...]

Come See What’s Inside … Jewelry In Candles

Apple Harvest Jewelry In Candles

A few days ago, a new product arrived on my door step. Jewelry In Candles. While the concept isn't new, the experience is! This 100% all natural soy candle comes in dozens of refreshing scents and just behind the label, an inch or so below the candle surface is a surprise ... a shimmering surprise! See that foil packet below ... Inside it awaits a piece of jewelry. One that I chose. You still get the surprise of color and … [Read more...]

Seeing is Believing – Ultra HD in store events happening now at Best Buy #UHDatBestBuy

Best Buy Wall Mounted TV

Less than a month ago, my husband and I got busy giving our living room a complete makeover. The walls got a fresh coat of paint, new furniture was ordered and one quick stop at a Best Buy store led us to order an amazing television and sound bar to complete the makeover. A week later we had a professional team from Geek Squad in our home installing the new tv and mounting it on the wall. But before that, we had to go through the somewhat … [Read more...]

Chicken & Veggie Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe with Calphalon Contemporary Cookware

Chicken and Vegetable Fettuccine Alfredo Dinner Recipe

Calphalon provided me with the products featured. In my kitchen, there's something I love more than anything else when it comes time to cook our family meals. It's a simple pot rack hanging just above the island countertop. My husband might disagree as he often finds his forehead making unfortunate meetings with the pots that dangle from the rack. However, I just adore it because it's home to my eclectic collection of pots, pans and … [Read more...]

Kajeet – Peace of Mind for Parents and Cell Phone Independence for Kids!

Kajeet LG phone

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kajeet. All opinions are 100% mine. Having kids has been an amazing experience, especially when they’re in the toddler and pre-teen stages of life. However, when it comes to having a teenager, life gets a little more difficult. This is the time for kids to experience a little more independence, sometimes, independence that is outside of my comfort zone. Since my son is about to … [Read more...]

OREO Overload Edible Ice Cream Bowls Recipe #WiltonTreatTeam

Oreo Overload Edible Ice Cream Bowls Recipe #WiltonTreatTeam

I have officially vowed to NEVER complain about winter ever again. I don't care how cold it gets, I won't complain because I'm about to whine my way through a really hot summer. This snow bunny was not meant to endure 80+ degree days (don't laugh). I know for some of the Southern folks that the 80's feel amazing but anything over 75 or so is reaching my melting point. Thank goodness for things like ice cream, shaved ice and air conditioning. … [Read more...]

Food Find | Watermelon Cupcakes and Watermelon Frosting

Betty Crocker Watermelon Cupcakes

About a week ago, I was strolling through Target looking for three things I needed and probably twenty more that I didn't need. That's pretty much how every Target shopping trip goes. You've got this short list in your hand and by the time you get to the checkout lane, you find your cart is full of dozens of things you didn't know you wanted until you got there. Anyways, one of things not on my list was this box of Betty Crocker Watermelon … [Read more...]

My Girls and Me … Building Strong Bones Together with Viactiv

017

Did you know ... Almost 70% of women, on average, are calcium deficient. However, that number jumps significantly for teen girls: 86% of teen girls do not get enough calcium in their daily diets. This is critical because 95% of bone building happens by age 20. As the mom of two daughters, I often worry about providing my girls with nutritionally balanced meals. Given the fact I'm not a nutritionist or dietitian, I can't say with any certainty … [Read more...]
