Make it an easy hassle free Thanksgiving dinner


This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Buca di Beppo® for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.
I have a big family. On a light holiday, we easily have 30 people in and out of the house for dinner. On a busier holiday, it can be closer to 45-50. That does not even include if my cousins and their kids happen to stop by. It can make for a very hectic holiday.
Just an example,My mom and I […]

Stretching Your Shoping Dollars This Holiday

Stretching Your Shoping Dollars This Holiday

This is a sponsored conversation. All thoughts are my own. #Alb2xdip
Everyone feels the crunch during the holidays. There is special food to buy for big holiday meals. There are all the gifts to buy. There are special decorations. For some people there is also traveling involved. It leaves everyone saying the same thing: There has to be a way to get more for the money I have.

1. Shop Deals: Everyone knows that this time of year is full of deals. […]

A Healthy Addition To Thanksgiving Dinner


This is a sponsored conversation from Edible Arrangements. All thoughts are my own.
Thanksgiving is coming in a few days and I have been making my list pf things I am making. I ma pretty much the dessert person for our family. I am charged with the pies and all of the good stuff. Ironically while I make and bring all of the yummy sugar-laden, fat inducing goodies, I really don’t eat them. I have been trying to not eat a […]

I was provided these learning cartridges from VTech in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts are my own.
One of my daughter’s favorite thing to play with is her VTech InnoTab. She can play games, take pictures and even take videos. I can download a variety of games for her to play on it and I can even get her e-books. I love that it easy to get her a new game cartridge to add in some new fun. A

Hess Trucks Are Back For Their 50th Year

2014 Hess truck, 50th anniversary edition

I have a working relationship with Hess Trucks. All thoughts are my own.
I remember sitting in my Grandparents spare room and playing with their Hess Trucks. It was special toy and while I had to play gentle, I loved sitting there for hours. It wasn’t that the trucks were delicate, because they are made out of hard  plastic,  it was because they are collectibles. This year, those Hess trucks have been out for 50 years. That is mind blowing.

I have […]

Tips to Help Your Child Feel Better When They Are Sick

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central (#MC)forLittle Remedies (#LittleRemedies). I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
It is that time of year again and  the sickies are out. So far, since school started, I think I have someone in the house sick at all times. It can make for some cranky kids after a while.

Chicken Soup: I know everyone always says that they […]
