This year my allergies have been rough. I say ‘seasonal’ allergies questionably, because it hasn’t seemed as seasonal as in the past. Typically, in the spring my allergy symptoms are the worst. However, this year, they still haven’t gotten much better. At least not without medicine.

This summer has been flying by! July is already almost over and soon school will be starting. Before we start talking back-to-school already, I am still thinking about all the fun we have had so far this summer. It has been pretty eventful with lots of fun-loving moments with my boys.

Who’s excited it’s Friday?

I am just glad this week is about over. It was slightly derailed (I’ll get to that at the end of the post) early on, making it a tough week. Since last Friday, most the memorable moments happened over the weekend into Monday.

Here’s a look back at this week’s happenings (mainly revolving around the little ones, again):

When my husband and I get a chance to have  date night, it always involves a nice dinner, typically at a steakhouse. It’s a good way to wind down, chat, and have some time kid-free. Last week I was invited to Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse in Downtown St. Louis with ALIVE Magazine to sample some delicious food and mingle.

Is it really Friday already? I guess I can handle that!

This week I decided to start doing Fab Five Fridays filled with things that happened throughout the week. I saw Lauren’s High Five for Friday post this morning and though it’s a great way to share what’s going on.

Here’s a look back at this week’s happenings:

Silk Protein+Fiber Almondmilk & a Fruit Salad Recipe

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Silk. The opinions and text are all mine.

As I try to lead a healthy lifestyle, some days it seems difficult. Those days that my ‘To Do’ list is over a page long and I am multitasking every second I get. Yes, that is often, and trying to stay on track with my health and what I consume isn’t always easy.

Patriotic Cake Push Pops + Hamilton Beach Mixers

July 3, 2014 No Comments

This patriotic cake push pop recipe was created while trying out Hamilton Beach Stand & Hand Mixers as a Hamilton Beach Ambassador. All opinions are my own.

I love baking. Not only is the taste important, but I like to put a little extra effort into the presentation. Desserts can easily be given a little added touch to go with any occasion, making them extremely fun for everyone. With July 4th tomorrow, I thought some patriotic push pops would be a huge hit with the little ones.
