This tips for surviving allergy season post is sponsored by Poise. All thoughts and words are my own.

I love summer, I really do.  Lots of places to go, things to see.  A number of excuses to be outside an enjoy the beautiful weather with friends and family.  Sun-kissed skin, flip-flops, and sundresses.

But I don’t love the way my allergies flare up during the summer.  The past few days I’ve been especially miserable; I’m nearly on a first-name basis with the staff at the drug store as I’ve gone through multiple boxes of tissues.

Disney Planes Fire and Rescue flew into theaters yesterday.  We had been promising Bubbles for weeks that we would go to see it the day it opened.  There was a 2:30 p.m. non-3D matinee, and so we packed up some snacks and headed to the theater.

The very moment the movie started, Bubbles exclaimed “That’s the song from the first Planes movie!”.  She was right; the instrumental intro was music shared from Disney Planes.  I liked how they tied them together right from the start. Continue reading »

Growing up my Mom always made some really yummy meatballs.  They were served up at most family potlucks or gatherings and often disappeared faster than anything else.  I know they were certainly one of my favorite things offered.

She called them German Meatballs, but I’m not sure where she got the name from.  To me, they’re much more like a Sweet and Sour meatball, so that’s what I’m sharing them with you all as.  The only thing you’ll really care about calling them, is delicious.

I am a compensated Superior Source Vitamins Ambassador. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Most families try to pack in the activities during the beautiful weather of the summer months. Our family is no different! We have BBQs, road trips, day trips to the zoo and museums, plus just the regular backyard activities in which we engage.

With everything we have going on, we don’t have time to let getting sick slow us down. We do exercise and eat well – Bubbles loves identifying what is and is not a healthy snack – but I like to give us a little extra assurance. So I make sure we get anything we may be missing with vitamins.

They’re MicroLingual, which means you just slip them under your tongue and they are quickly absorbed into the body, dissolving in just seconds. Here is a little about some of what we’ve been taking lately or will be taking soon: Continue reading »

From the moment I first showed Bubbles the trailer for Planes: Fire & Rescue she has been beside herself with excitement waiting for it to come out.  I told her that she, Mama, and Daddy would all go and see it together and now every time she sees the commercial or the trailer, she bounces around and exclaims “That’s the one we’re going to see in the movie theater!”.  So it’s going to be a family date night.  Or, more accurately, a family date afternoon.

Daytime Date Makeup Essentials #WalgreensPaperless #shop

My daytime date makeup is a little different than what I’d wear for a night on the town, but when I went looking through my makeup stash, I realized I really needed to replace quite a few things.  And when I need cosmetics – or most anything, really – Walgreens is often the first place I stop.
