I’ve many times written of how much I enjoy the food choices available from HoneyBaked Ham.  Whether it’s Christmas Eve or Easter dinner, it’s just not a meal without a spiral-cut HoneyBaked Ham.

This Easter will be no different.  I actually just called today to reserve a ham to be picked up on Saturday.  I was told you don’t even need to reserve one, as they have plenty.  So if you’re still on the fence about what to serve, know that you can call them up or even just stop in between now and Saturday and you’ll be able to serve your guests a mouthwatering ham with that signature glaze!

HoneyBaked Turkey Breast from HoneyBaked Ham #HoneyBakedEaster

Back when I was studying the HoneyBaked Ham catering menu for our Big Game party I happened to notice that in addition to ham, you could also buy HoneyBaked Turkey.  They have turkey breasts year-round, and whole turkeys are available seasonally.  So the other day when we were trying to decide what to do for dinner, I suggested that we give one of the turkey breasts from our local Louisville HoneyBaked Ham Cafe a try.

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Urbini. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and as a thank you for participating.

When we were prepping for Bubbles’ arrival, one of the things we researched was a stroller.  I knew we wouldn’t need one right away, but when we looked at the options, I found that there were a number of “travel sets”.  A combination stroller with a car seat that could go from base in the car, to snapping into the stroller.  Very convenient!

People also encouraged me to get a travel stroller.  I kind of brushed the idea off, because the stroller that came with our set was a pretty sweet ride, and I couldn’t imagine why we’d want to use anything else.  Like needing a golf cart when you had a luxury SUV.

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Beamly. The opinions and text are all mine.

I remember when LOST first was airing on TV.  I had so many thoughts and questions!  There was a constant stream of “Oh my gosh, does what she just said somehow tie in to what he just did?” moments, and I couldn’t wait to bounce ideas off my friends about what was going on.

Not all my friends were watching, though.  Crazy, right?  So I did what any connected girl would do in our day and age: I went online!  I searched for forums, boards, and webpages where I could see what others were saying about LOST.

The Show Never Stops on Beamly!

With as many times that we have, today alone, watched Disney Planes, I figured that it’s appropriate to be sharing some new Planes news!  There is a new trailer for Disney Planes: Fire & Rescue – one that we’ve watched roughly 30 times in the past couple of days.  Bubbles begs me to play it every time I pick up my laptop.

Bubbles isn’t the only excited one in the family.  I love that not only are they doing the sequel, but that they’re doing it so fast!  So often you have to wait years for a follow up to something great, but not this time.  Planes: Fire & Rescue will be in theaters on July 18th.

Disney Planes: Fire & Rescue - Dusty

Our old friend Dusty (voiced again by Dane Cook) returns to Propwash Junction excited about his racing career.  But when a fateful training run causes a career-ending injury, he decides to train with the Aerial Fire Fighters at Piston Peak Air Attack Base as a Single Engine Air Tanker (SEAT). The heroic, often life-threatening efforts involved are admirable, but sometimes seem impossible to master, especially when Dusty has injury that can’t be ignored. Continue reading »

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/P&G. All words and opinions are my own.

There’s just something special about spending an evening hanging out with the girls.  Whether it’s drinking coffee and noshing on something sweet, catching a movie, or just hanging out at someone’s house watching some guilty-pleasure housewife-type of show, recharging your batteries with gal pals is important to your mental health.

Of course getting a little glam for Girls’ Night Out is always fun, too.  When your regular “crew” is too young to get into a PG-13 movie by themselves, you may tend to skip a few steps in your normal routine.  I know most days I’m lucky if I manage to smooth on a little primer and swipe a little mascara across my lashes.
