Sponsored Posts, Giveaways, and Reviews

I can’t believe I’ve never shared this recipe. I love to make sangria – when the weather warms up and we’re spending all day out on the deck, I usually make a big pitcher of this fruity drink for everyone (well, all the adults) to enjoy.  But don’t worry – I have a non-alcoholic version, [...]

This post is sponsored by Milton’s Craft Bakers. I have a fun recipe that would be perfect for your next backyard party + a review of an awesome brand of certified gluten free and Non-GMO Project Verified baked crackers + a big old giveaway!  Wahoo! First, let's talk crackers. A lot of gluten-free crackers taste [...]


So we spent the weekend in lovely Savannah.  I’ve never been to the city before, but it was so special and romantic. It would be a great girlfriend getaway town or place for a couples’ weekend!   The city was settled in 1733 and was a strategic port city in the American Revolution and Civil [...]


This weekend, I packed up the car, dropped the doggies off at camp, and the Husband, Henry, Claire and I drove to Savannah, Georgia for the Publix Savannah Women’s Half Marathon and 5K. I was signed on to do the 5K as a blog ambassador. I am so excited that I had a chance to [...]


This post is sponsored by Imagine® Foods. Happy {almost} St. Patrick’s Day!  Charlotte hosted a big parade and festival, and although we missed the parade due to rain, we managed to catch the tail end of the party.  There was carnival food, street performers, Irish dancing, and bouncy houses for the kids.  It was fun! [...]


Yay!  So excited to pass this deal along... I have a great TOTALLY FREE offer for readers looking to jumpstart their spring cleaning! Although I can’t tell by the snow outside my window, spring is right around the corner.  And that means it’s nearly spring cleaning time.  I didn’t realize before becoming a homeowner how [...]


I feel the need… the need for speed.  In everything I do lately, but especially in my workouts! With two small kiddos, it is SO not easy to get to the gym.  Or out the door for a run.  But it’s really important to me, so I try to find the time to exercise.  Unfortunately, [...]


Here’s an awesome way to start off Monday – with a jogging stroller review and an amazing giveaway. I was super excited to test out the Chicco Tre stroller, and I’m even more excited to give one away.  The Tre is a great jogger – I actually like it more than my BOB Ironman!  But [...]


Just to celebrate Friday, I have a great giveaway for you from White Plum, an online vintage-inspired boutique filled with fun, affordable clothing. I’ll called White Plum leggings “the perfect leggings,” and I really mean it.  Comfy, thick, and stylish – I absolutely love their fleece leggings.  But their printed leggings are just as awesome!   [...]


This post is sponsored by Bombas. You don’t need much to be a runner.  A pair of sneakers and some comfy clothes and you’re off.  But to take it to the next level, it definitely helps to have some running-specific gear.  So here’s a list of a few of my favorite running items.  I have [...]


This post is sponsored by HP and Intel. I was so excited to experience working on-the-go with the HP and Intel Stream, a new kind of tablet with Intel Inside ®!  You see, I thought I was not a “tablet person.”  For a really long time, I resisted tablets because I thought they were redundant.  [...]


This post is sponsored by siggi's. If I were stuck on a deserted island and could only eat three foods for the rest of my life, they would be: peaches, chocolate, and Greek yogurt. I love yogurt - especially when it's paired with raw oatmeal (try it - I swear it's delicious) or crunchy granola. [...]


This is a sponsored post. Although we don’t live in a climate that guarantees we’ll be stuck indoors all winter, there are definitely more days than not that it’s too cold to venture outside – especially with new baby Claire!  It can be challenging to think of new games and activities for a busy toddler. [...]


This post is sponsored by Celestial Seasonings. There is so much awesomeness packed into this post that I don’t know where to start.  Obviously, tea-infused cupcakes would be a good place, but let’s talk about this cupcake stand for just a moment. Would you believe that this stand is actually a charger, two upside-down plates, [...]
