10 Things to Look At on Pinterest

10 Things to Look At on Pinterest

Pinterest, Pinterest, Pinterest.  It's what everyone is talking about. Pinterest is the place to hang out.  It's where all the cool kids hang... or the cool moms.  It's the place to get great ideas, to learn new DIY skill's, to get inspired, to find great recipes (and sometimes bad ones),  and to waste a lot of time.  Haha.  Seriously I am sure you've all wasted time getting sucked into Pinterest at least once or twice.  I know I have about 100 times a week. But that's not so bad.   Pinterest inspires me to do things, to make things, to try things and to blog sometimes too!  I get ideas and think to myself (being a blogger that is) "I can do that too and I can blog about it!".  I have a...

Five Valentine’s Day Gifts {that Won’t Break the Bank}

Five Valentine’s Day Gifts {that Won’t Break the Bank}

This post is Sponsored by LINDOR but my opinions are 100% my own! It's February so let's talk about Valentine's Day Gifts that won't break the bank.  Valentine's Day is coming and it's the perfect time of the year to tell those around you, just how much you love and appreciate them.  It's not a day just for lovers, it's a day for friendship too.   While you may tell your kids, parents, husband/wife, significant others, and friends all the time that you love them, why not do something to show that you do too! That being said, I think it's good to stay within your budget when buying Valentine's Day Gifts.  You may recall the other day I posted Eight Ways to Save in a year - you could blow...

Butterball Cookie Recipe

Butterball Cookie Recipe

I've been baking!!  I love baking and so does my family.  They all anxiously wait for the taste testing part.  They usually ask me a few times if it's time to taste them yet.  I can't blame them, it's my favorite part too. I make about 8 different cookies for the holidays but the ones that are the most popular and everyone's favorite is a Butterball Cookie recipe that my mom passed down to me.   The reason why they are called butterballs is that they are made with a lot of butter and no eggs so they have a big butter taste.  And when you combine butter with powdered sugar - they just melt in your mouth! Butterball Cookie Recipe Over the years I've seen a few variations of this recipe but...

Be a Kid Again with Hasbro Board Games #HolidayGiftIdea

Be a Kid Again with Hasbro Board Games #HolidayGiftIdea

This post is Sponsored by Hasbro but my opinions are 100% my own! When I was growing up, Saturday night was game night for my brother and I.  My parents would go to a movie and the babysitter would come over and play board games with us.  I loved it and remember the fun we had together.  Some of my favorite Hasbro Board games were Monopoly, Sorry, Connect Four and as we got a bit older, Battleship!  I have so many great memories of these games and I'm so glad that my girls now have my love of board games.  While there are so many great games, I still love the oldies that I played as a kid and I'm so happy to add them to their board game collection. Below are some of my favorite Hasbro...

Dancing Deer Valentine’s Day Goodies

Dancing Deer Valentine’s Day Goodies

This post is Sponsored by Dancing Deer but my opinions are 100% my own! Those look delicious, right?  Considering sending someone Dancing Deer Valentine's Day Goodies this month.  I assure you, they will love them!!! Sometimes our loved ones are across the country, which makes it harder to not only see them but to show them how much we appreciate them.  Just because someone isn't in your everyday life,  doesn't mean they aren't important.   My best friend lives about 3 hours from me but we talk on an almost daily basis.   There are some days I wouldn't know what to do if I couldn't talk to her.  She's a great listener, she always has my back and always takes my side!  She knows me so well...

Making Choices in The Game of Life

This post is Sponsored by Hasbro but my opinions are 100% my own! The Game of Life is another favorite in our house.  The girls have loved playing with our old game but they really needed a newer version so we were happy to receive the Newest edition of The Game of Life from Hasbro for review. If you aren't familiar with the game it's so much fun!  It's a game all about choices and each choice you make changes the game.  It's never the same game twice.  Where will your choices take you? You made it through high school, so now what’s next? Go to college or start a career – it’s your choice. Think the family life is for you? Take that path and see how many kids you’ll have!

Check out these FUN Tricksters Bike Helmets and some Bike Safety Tips

This post is Sponsored by Tricksters Helmets but my opinions are 100% my own! Spring is here which means we are outdoors a lot more and that means the girls will be riding their bikes.  Time to talk about bike safety.  We live in a neighborhood set back a few streets from the main road but there is still a good amount of traffic that comes by our house.   So I make sure that I'm outside when the girls are riding their bikes and we always practice safety as well.   They have a certain area on our street they can ride to and from since they are still too young to ride off without me on their own.  One of my daughters still has her training wheels on her bike, which I'm hoping to get off this...

Turkey and Avocado Sandwich

One of my favorite sandwiches is a Turkey Avocado Sandwich and I almost always have these ingredients on hand. Here is what you need: 2 oz of Sliced Deli Turkey 1/3 of Ripe Avocado (or more or less if you want) 4 slices of Tomato Wheat Bread/Sandwich Thins Mayo You can add bacon too! Doesn't that look delicious???  Well it was, and healthy too!   The first time I ever had Turkey and Avocado together was at a restaurant where I got a turkey burger with a slice of avocado and I loved it! Then I was in NYC for a blogging event and had another Turkey and Avocado sandwich but that was made with carved turkey, crisp bacon, avocado, and bean sprouts! I remember it so well because I had never had...

Lemon Pie in a Cup – Quick and Easy Snacks

This shop was compensated by #CollectiveBias, Inc. and its advertisers but has been updated since then. All opinions are mine alone. Lemon Pie in a Cup Summer just started and I know it's going to go by fast.  It's the fastest season ever.  It's amazing how fast the summer goes by.  My girls are teens now, but they are home all the time and always looking to snack.  I'm always on the lookout for simple snack recipes that I can quickly put together any day of the week.  Even though they are girls, they are always hungry!

Spring is here and that doesn't just mean you can open the windows, spend more time outdoors and start getting your garden ready, but it also means it's time to do some Spring Cleaning inside and get all those winter germs out of the house.  While I don't like cleaning very much, I do enjoy Spring cleaning and going through the house and getting all the winter dust off everything! Over the next two weeks I'll be doing my Spring Cleaning.  I'll also be using some Total Home products from CVS/Pharmacy while cleaning.   The Total Home line launched last year to offer customers exceptional, reliable options at fraction of the cost when compared to national brands, without sacrificing quality....
