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.

Superior Source Vitamins

I’ve loved the convenience of Superior Source vitamins over the last few months. 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 »

It’s finally starting to feel like summer is coming with plans to stay. This means more opportunities to be outside enjoying the beautiful weather! These easy tips will have your skin and nails summer ready in no time.

How to Get Summer Ready Skin and Nails


Consider exfoliating a primer for your canvas. You want to gently buff off all the old, tired skin from the winter and let the new, youthful skin shine through. Your body can stand up to a fairly good scrubbing with an exfoliating cleanser and brush or scrubbing mitts. For your face, choose something more gentle and use your hands or a silicone exfoliater specifically for that purpose. Continue reading »

This X-Men: Days of Future Past movie post is sponsored by Global Influence. All words and opinions are my own.

The more commercials I see for X-Men Days of Future Past, the more excited I get.  We’ve always enjoyed the X-Men movies, and this one looks like it could top the others in terms of awesomeness.

And, let’s all be honest. Hugh Jackman.  Yes.

It opens on May 23rd, a few days after Ashley graduates, which means she should be home and available to babysit while hubby and I have a date night.  It’s been awhile since we’ve had the opportunity to catch a movie at the theater, just the two of us, so it will be a nice treat.

X-Men Days of Future Past Exclusive Axe Gift Pack with FREE #XMen Movie Poster

Before we head out to watch it, I’ll be stopping by Walgreens to pick up the X-Men: Days of Future Past Axe® gift pack with a free movie poster inside.  Both hubby and Austin like many of the Axe products, so it’s something we’d be buying, anyway.  Maybe gift packs for each of them for graduation and Father’s Day.  The free X-men poster will be a nice little bonus.

I’ve always loved video games, pretty much since the first time I watched my uncle play Frogger on the Atari when I was a kid.  When they came out, we bought a Nintendo, and from there we had pretty much every system.  But when Sony and Xbox started releasing their systems at roughly the same time, I sometimes found it hard to choose which one to pick first.

You may be about to have a similar problem.

I received a gift basket from Nutella as a thank you for sharing my National Pancake Day smile. All thoughts and words are my own.

Today is National Pancake Day!  How fun, right?  I love that there are days throughout the year to celebrate delicious and classic foods.

We enjoy pancakes, and not just for breakfast; we have them for lunch and dinner, too.  Sometimes just by themselves, and sometimes paired with scrambled eggs, sausage or bacon, maybe even a few hashbrowns.  My stomach is seriously growling now just thinking about it.

Fluffy Pancake Recipe for #NationalPancakeDay #ShareTheHappy

But because it’s National Pancake Day, let’s celebrate pancakes by themselves.  Well, with a topping, of course.  And what better way to top a pancake that with delicious Nutella? Continue reading »
