litter genie cat waste disposal system

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Litter Genie, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #petparents There are two things I love in this life more than anything else and that is my family and my pets. I might even go as far to say that they're one in the same because my pets are part of my family, just in a much furrier form. Like my husband and kids, my … [Read more...]

Baked Focaccia with Mozzarella, Tomatoes & Sweet Basil Pesto with #PompeianVarietals

Italian Bread with Easy Basil Pesto Recipe #PompeianVarietals

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Pompeian. I keep a lot of oils in my kitchen, some healthy, some not-so-much. They all serve a purpose when I'm cooking but my absolute favorite to cook and prepare dishes with is extra virgin olive oil. The flavor is so different from any other oil and somehow, for me, it just makes food taste better. That's why I was really excited to learn about the new Pompeian Varietals extra virgin olive … [Read more...]

Coconut French Toast with Toasted Coconut Topping Recipe #DunkinMugUp

For weeks now I've had nothing on my mind but the beginning of Spring. And now that it has officially happened AND we got a really warm day, well, I'm just overjoyed. It's just slightly more of a blessing than the new Dunkin' Donuts Spring and Summer flavors of the season. For a limited time, you can visit your local grocery store and find three new flavors including: Peach Cobbler, Coconut and Toasted Almond. You'll either love one or … [Read more...]

Take the Guesswork Out of Gardening with New Miracle-Gro Gro-ables


This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Gro-ables. All opinions are 100% mine. Even though I grew up with a home gardening father, a green thumb didn't come naturally to me the way it did for him. My first home garden was very much a disaster and my second wasn't much better. It actually got the point where I was having more failure than success that I bought vegetable plants that were already grown. Going that route (vs. … [Read more...]

What Else Is New?

1. I was rushing off to the dentist yesterday (woohoo more cavities, ugh) and I open my car to find someone had pulled everything out of my glove box and storage compartments leaving quite the mess. Then we look in the minivan to find some little jerk dug through there too and sprayed a bottle of baby powder all over the seats. Clearly somebody thought they were being funny and they're quite luck we didn't catch them. 2. Now that I finally … [Read more...]

Household Finances and the #BMOScavengerHunt Sweepstakes


This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of BMO Harris Bank N.A. Member FDIC. All opinions are 100% mine. Budgeting and finances. Those are two words that will immediately give me the grumpy face, a loud sigh and slump in my chair. I’ve never been a fan of balancing checkbooks, managing financial accounts and especially not budgeting. Even though my husband and I maintain separate financial accounts, I tend to leave … [Read more...]

PEEPS Chicks and Bunnies Cookies #WiltonTreatTeam #peepsonality

A few weeks ago I was browsing through Micheal's Craft store, like I often do, and found a whole display filled with new PEEPS products from Wilton. How absolutely cute are these???? Well, as part of the Wilton Sweet Treats Team, the company was kind enough to send me a whole package of the new PEEPS products. (P.S. I've only seen these products at Michael's, Jo-Ann Fabrics and Walmart and they are flying off the shelves. So if you want … [Read more...]

The Coolest Coffee Around! #DunkinMugUp

dunkin mug

Cool is so not a word I would ever use to describe myself. Quirky, weird, maybe even odd, those are more my thing. But even though I'm not so cool, I'd say my coffee is. I mean, seriously, how could my Dunkin' Donuts coffee not be cool when it comes in edgy flavors like chocolate glazed donut, blueberry muffin and jelly donut??? I'd say my coffee is even cooler because it gets to hang out in my awesome collection of coffee mugs. You see, I … [Read more...]
