Cythera – An Isolated Island Ideal for Relaxation and Discovery

Cythera – An Isolated Island Ideal for Relaxation and Discovery
Welcome to Cythera. This secluded Greek island can be found towards the south of the Peloponnese, a Greek peninsula. Although considered one of the seven Ionian Islands, it is isolated from the other six that are grouped together further north.
During the Medieval ages, Cythera was occupied by the Venetians, and this long-standing occupation left many sights of unique architecture to be discovered around the island. A fine example of this is [...]

Four Simple Methods for Protecting Your Health While Traveling

Four Simple Methods for Protecting Your Health While Traveling
Whenever you travel, you put yourself at risk of becoming ill for any number of reasons, including simply being in a new place that your body is unaccustomed to. If you are traveling by plane, you should be aware of the fact that an airline cabin is often rife with germs due to the relatively large number of people sitting in close quarters with only recycled air to breathe. Since an illness [...]

Mocko-Taco Recipe: Meatless Taco Salad Recipe

Mocko Taco Salad Recipe

Thank you Beyond Meat for sponsoring this recipe.
Tacos are one of our favorite foods. We eat them all the time. But I know that eating meat all the time is not the best. It is not great for my health and it isn’t great for the planet either. So, a few years back I decided that at least 2 times a week, I would replace our dinners with a meatless meal. For a long time, meatless meal nights meant salad, [...]

Summertime BBQs are No Longer a Worry

Enjoying my BBQ without worrying about gas discomfort

This is a sponsored conversation from CharcoCaps®. All thoughts are my own.
I love Summer. I love everything about it. I love taking the kids on fun trips. I love taking them to the beach, or hanging out by the pool. I love have fun carefree days. What I love most is that we have BBQs with family and friends and it is just a fun time to all hang out together. But unfortunately, there is an embarrassing problem that comes [...]

Chicken Salad Sandwich Recipe

Chicken Salad Recipe using Arnold® Sandwich Thins® Rolls

Thank you Arnold Bread for sponsoring this Chicken Salad Recipe post.
One of my favorite sandwiches to eat is chicken salad sandwiches. When ever I decide I need to give up bread, white bread gives me headaches or because I want to eat less processed carbs, it is the one thing that I miss the most. Of course I could eat chicken salad without the bread, but it just isn’t the same. You know how certain foods just HAVE to be [...]

Easy Way to Deal With Dry Skin

Walgreens Deals on Vaseline Intensive Care products (1)

I am sitting at my computer, trying to get work done after my kids have gone to sleep and my little one has come out again. She needs medicine for her dry, cracked, itchy skin. I don’t know if I have ever seen someone who has skin quite so dry. We have to moisturize her every morning and every night to keep it under control. She maybe little, but using lotion twice a day on her can add up, so [...]

Free Things to Do in Delaware

Free things to do in Delaware

School is starting soon and I am trying to squeeze a few more fun summer outings with the kids. But the problem is, with school starting, I am worried about paying for Back to School supplies and Back to School Clothes. So with my money going elsewhere, I do not have a lot to put towards travel right now.

I love doing short trips during the day because we can pack some sandwiches, snacks and drinks, and we can have a [...]

Smart watch for kids- Kidizoom Smart Watch from vtech (11)

The VTech product, gift card, information, and additional gift pack have been provided by VTech.
My daughter is just getting the age where she is starting to understand time and really wanting to learn how to tell time for herself. She is starting to understand that the numbers on the clock actually represent something and that when the hands of the clock are in certain spots that it changes what time it is.

Since every moment can be a teaching moment, I [...]

What You Should Know About School Lunch

school lunch from an actual school

Thank you to School Nutrition Association for inviting me to learn more about school lunches. All thoughts are my own.
School starts here in about a month. And like most parents I have been wondering what is the best choice for lunch. Do I let the kids buy lunch or do they pack lunch? There is a lot to consider on both fronts. There is the nutritional value of what is given to kids for lunch, whether the kids will like [...]
