Weelicious Granola Bar Recipe and Cookbook Giveaway

This cookbook is packed with healthy, fun lunch […]

Did you know there’s a new candy company that makes a healthier version of some of our favorite treats? The company is called UNREAL, which is a little confusing, because it actually is real.

We were there for the final session of the three-day long event, and while I thought we might go for an hour or two, we ended up staying over four hours! It was a LEGO-lover’s dream.

Red white and blue BINGO party

Packed lunch ideas (and why I'm in love with Planetboxes)

  I used to HATE packing lunches, but that has all changed. I really should get a job as a spokesperson for these Planetboxes, because they’ve changed my life (or at least the time I spend packing lunches in the morning). I think the biggest pre-Planetbox frustration was digging through our cabinet of jumbled plastic […]

Yep, the company famous for its delicious Oregon-made cheese has expanded their dairy offerings and they were kind enough to send me samples to try. (Yes, I so appreciate the perks […]

Mid Century Modern Style at jcpenney

I opened up the jcpenney catalog I got in the mail today and was blown away! Normally, their catalog has so much neon, it sort of hurts my eyes. This time, I was drooling over all the mid century modern style furniture! First, they have a new line from British designer Sir Terence Conran called […]
