I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence-Central for Jif To Go Dippers. I received a sample to facilitate my review and a thank you item for participating.

We have been on-the-go quite a bit lately.  Road trips, day trips, shopping, pumpkin patch visits.  And while it’s a lot of fun, preparing and packing for those kinds of excursions can take a little bit of pre-planning.

On-the-Go Energy with Jif To Go Dippers #GetGoing

I have a “Preschooler Bag” (anyone have a better name for a diaper bag for preschoolers?  I’d love to hear it) that I like to keep stocked with whatever we might need: wipes, sunscreen, an extra outfit, entertainment.  And let’s not forget the snacks.  Snacks can make or break an outing, especially if any of your family members have a tendency to get “hangry”.

Sometimes, really funny things come out of my daughter’s mouth.  Not that, based on the serious look on her face, she intends them to be funny.  She just can’t help but make me giggle.

The other day she comes sauntering into the bedroom while I was folding laundry.  One little balled-up fist went to each hip and she struck a “power pose”.  “Hey Mama, look.  I’m a Super Hero Butterfly.”

Super Me Backpack Transforms Kids Into a Super Hero

And, indeed, she was.  She had on the butterfly mask that I wore last Halloween, plus her Super Me Bubblicious Cape backpack on.  She proceeded to show me some of her super powers which included running really fast; I was disappointed that speed-folding laundry isn’t something a Butterfly Super Hero can do.

The information, gift card, gift pack and giveaway have been provided to me by Hard Rock International. No celebrity or musician has endorsed the “Does Your Child Look Like a Rock Star” contest.

Bubbles loves music. Especially when she gets to sing, or when she gets to “play” the guitar – which she called her “rockstar” for about a year. So when we heard that Hard Rock International was launching the fun new Roxtars, I knew we had to find out more.

I am a Superior Source Ambassador and receive compensation and product for this post on healthy fall snacks. All words and opinions are my own.

This is the time of year where I feel like I need to stay on top of my health.  My allergies tend to flare up with the change of the seasons, there are colds floating around out there, and with more activities for kids, there are more opportunities to interact and exchange germs.

10 Healthy Fall Snacks

As part of my efforts to keep my family well, I try to keep our diet filled with a variety of healthy snacks and recipes.  Here are some of my favorite healthy fall snacks. Continue reading »

With a majority of my formative years falling in what’s affectionately known just as “the 80s”, it should be no surprise that I love that era.  I mean, what’s not to love about the decade that brought us the music of both Bon Jovi and Paula Abdul (“Forever Your Girl” and “Livin’ On a Prayer?”  Aces.)

The Goldbergs

The Goldbergs Complete First Season now on DVD

Last year when The Goldbergs came out on TV, I was a little beside myself with joy.  I watch that show alternating between shouting “yes!” and laughing out loud, because I remember.  That striped shirt that Barry often wears?  I know people that wore that shirt (big props to the wardrobe folks, by the way).
