My October box arrived earlier than usual this month! When I checked my mail, I was so surprised to see it! The October box is all about being a boss babe!
Recently, my family and I had the opportunity to take a mid-week getaway to the Monterey Peninsula for my husband’s 39th birthday and to kick off the summer vacation for our six-year old. It had been a few months since the last time we got out of town, and our first time to go to the Monterey peninsula, so we were excited to visit the town of Carmel-by-the-Sea.
We just got back from a week long vacation to Walt Disney World. We also spent a day at SeaWorld. This was a much needed vacation as it had been 3 years and 11 months since our last visit to Disney World. During that time, we were always dreaming of a trip to Disney World but we were busy with work, school and life changes. I was working full time, changed jobs and then went back to being a full time stay at home mom and blogger. My husband went to work full time and also going to college. Our schedules were all over the place. So, when the opportunity presented itself, we decided to take a relaxing and fun week off!
With my fiancée being the Fire Chief in our local town, I am always struggling to know what to buy for dinner! A lot of times I don’t even know if he will make it home for dinner after I spent time planning our meals out for the week. With HelloFresh, I was able to have just enough fresh meals in the fridge to last a week and they were all very nutritional and delicious.
When was the last time you watched Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs? I believe the last time I watched it was when I was a child! It has been so long!
It’s that wonderful time of the year when we crave recipes that remind us of the simple comforts of home. I finally gave up my half-hearted attempts to begin the South Beach Diet as the child in me yearned for the culinary traditions I grew up with.
I recently had the opportunity to try the Good Cooking Salad Maker. I am trying to add more salads to my daily routine. Usually I have a big salad for dinner because I am not too hungry in the evening and a salad is perfect. I received the Good Cooking Salad Maker to review in exchange for my honest opinion.
When I was asked to review a product from Activz, I quickly accepted. The hardest part was choosing which product to try! Their entire site is all about health, nutrition, vegetarian and vegan friendly! I received Kale Powder from Activz to review in exchange for my honest opinion.
When I was asked by Ozeri to review another product, I quickly accepted! They gave me a choice of products, and I knew right away that I wanted to try their Green Earth Pan! I received the Green Earth Pan to review in exchange for my honest opinion.
