Silk Protein+Fiber Almondmilk & a Fruit Salad Recipe

July 11, 2014 No Comments

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.

Our First Family Vacation to the Beach & How We Kept Cool

July 2, 2014 1 Comment

During our first family vacation to the beach, we stayed cool with Capri Sun as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. All opinions are 100% my own. #CapriSunMomFactor

When we decided it was time for a family vacation to the beach, we weren’t too sure what we were getting ourselves into. Were we completely insane to drive 14 hours with three kids just so they can experience the sand in their toes and the salty ocean waves? How would they handle all that heat?

Refreshing Low Calorie Drinks with Keurig Brew Over Ice

This low calorie drink post is a shop that has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. I am also participating in a contest as an additional aspect of this campaign.

No matter how much I try to ‘take it easy’, our days are busy and things can get hectic. Most mornings I can be found downing a few cups of coffee. At times we out the door and quickly on the-the-go, running errands, or just enjoying the outdoors. I am often looking for an easy, low calorie drink to have by my side no matter where we are.

Around here, the weekends mean grilling, good friends, and outdoor parties. My husband will find any excuse to fire up the grill and load it with tasty veggies and meats. We have now taken outdoor cooking to a new level this weekend with a new electric smokehouse.
