Everything’s Loud & Clear with Google Chromecast Audio

March 11, 2017 By · No Comments

Disclosure: The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the Google Chromecast Audio for review purposes.

Walking the Treadmill with Google Chromecast Audio from Best Buy is probably the best thing! You can hear everything loud and clear. Well compared to me trying to hear music on my phone attached to me and with one ear unplugged so I can hear Nicoli. Okay, so I’ve been trying to walk more and since I can’t be outside in the cold much without getting sick I’ve taken to the treadmill. The only issue is I want to hear music and that does NOT include cartoons. So while Nicoli is in the room watching his shows I can walk.

I kid you not this box is about as big as my hand but it lets you hear throughout your house. I LOVE IT!!

March 9, 2017 By · 29 Comments

Disclosure: This post is in partnership with Hulu

Don’t miss out on the newest show hitting Hulu. The PowerPuff Girls are back!! Hulu is the new online home of “sugar, spice, and everything nice” – now the only place to find the full classic animated series! So if you were watching the PowerPuff girls about 10 years ago you can start watching them again!

As a mom to five, two of those being girls I must say I use to love watching this show. My girls would curl up beside me as we watched Super Hero Girls fight to take back their city. These little girls were showing everyone that girls could be powerful too! Now you can get in on this action too. My girls would get so into them they’d pretend to fly around the room in their own little capes and pretend to have their powers. I loved it! It also taught them about teamwork and true friendship and what it is like to be sisters.

As a WELCOME Back Hulu would like to celebrate The Powerpuff Girls by highlighting amazing girls across the country! Do you know any AMAZING girls? I have two great girls right here in my own home. One that is fighting to have great grades while working part-time. Another is signed up for every school club she can get in on, keeping her grade point average and volunteering for extra curricular causes. Both have big hearts.

Head on over to Hulu and enter the contest. Tell Hulu and the rest of the world about YOUR AMAZING



These #RealLifePowerpuff girls are doing rad things and inspiring others along the way, whether working in the fields of science or sports, or doing great things for their families and community. Do you have an awesome, inspiring young girl in your life? Share your #RealLifePowerpuff girl by posting a photo or video of them on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter and tag it with #RealLifePowerpuff and #Contest. Don’t forget to include what makes her awesome and they might get shared and enter you to win a special PPG prize! Visit the official website for more information.

The Powerpuff Girls centers on three sugar-coated superheroes, Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup, whose missions in life alternate between going to school, fighting crime, winning at hopscotch and saving the world before bedtime. The girls are frequently called upon by the town’s mayor to help fight nearby criminals using their powers. While their differences cause them to squabble and tease, their individual strengths combined always lead them to victory. They rely on teamwork, trust, and friendship to thwart evil (in the most adorable way).

When We Last Spoke Review

February 17, 2017 By · 4 Comments

When We Last Spoke

I grew up in a time where family was right next door. Wait, not entirely they were a town away but we visited almost weekly, we got to know each crazy relative and their special-ness to our beloved family.  I don’t know how I would’ve felt if I’d ever been abandoned by a parent and left with my lovely family. I couldn’t imagine the pain, the hurt, the unwanted feeling….rejection.  To be dropped off and your own dad on his way to the Vietnam War, such a traumatic event of loss upon loss. Thankfully they had grandparents that loved them.

Summary of When Last We Spoke:

About When We Last Spoke (from the back cover):

“Humor, heartbreak, and triumph are served with whipped cream and lots of local nuts in this heartwarming tale of family, friendship, and forgiveness in Fireside, Texas.

Garden Lites Muffins: Delicious Muffins without Mom Guilt

February 10, 2017 By · No Comments

Garden Lites Muffins Freezer

I’ve been leaning towards eating healthier for a while now, not everyone is completely on board and when that happens you know how hard that can be. It doesn’t matter if it is spouse, friends/co-workers or your kids. When there is resistance it is hard to fight and stay on track. My goal right now is to start with the young ones. Why? My girls already love to eat healthy, they just tend to eat sweets when allowed. I found a new snack idea that the kids love and I feel great about. Rich in veggies too……They are….. Garden Lites Muffins!

Garden Lites Packaging

I end up snacking during the day and so does Nicoli.  Instead of giving him some junk I can now give him a chocolate muffin without guilt. Why? Simply because Garden Lites have mixed up veggies into their muffins. We got two different ones to try out: Chocolate Muffins (made with fresh zucchimi & carrots) and Banana Chocolate Chip muffins (made with fresh zucchini and bananas). Nicoli will never know the difference. Truth is as long as I start him early he will always love zucchini muffins/cupcakes. Isabella once tried them at a Farmer’s Market and has loved them since.
