This post about Chris Buescher and the Balance Financial Card is a partnered post. All thoughts and words are my own.

Recently ROUSH Fenway Racing driver Chris Buescher made a pit stop (pun intended) in Louisville this past week as part of the Walgreens Race Around America.  Throughout this cross-country tour he’s helping to build and test an icon of speed and engineering – the ROUSH Stage 3 Mustang.  And the best part is we all get to help!

Head over and cast your first votes now. Continue reading »

When I was a little girl, I was beyond excited when friends of our family – Rod and Wendy – asked me to go on a weekend vacation with them.  Much to my surprise, part of the weekend festivities was attending a Disney On Ice show.  I still can remember sitting in my seat with my program on my lap, anxiously waiting the start of the program.

Disney On Ice Princesses and Heroes

I have been wanting to take Bubbles to see one of these shows for awhile now.  With as much as she loves Disney, I have no doubt that she’ll love Disney On Ice.  My theory is supported by the fact that every time the commercials are on TV she jumps up and down and asks if we can go.

I am a member of the Everywhere Society and Everywhere Agency has sponsored this post on Johnny Iuzzini and Macy’s. All thoughts and words are my own.

This past weekend was the Kentucky Derby, which is held right here in town. The Derby is a huge event in and of itself, but the entire city parties for at least a couple of weeks ahead of time. Celebrities roll in, charity events are held, and there are lots of associated things to do, also.

Chef Johnny Iuzzini, Macy's Culinary Council

So when I heard that one of the events would be a cooking demo at our local Macy’s, conducted by Johnny Iuzzini, one of their Culinary Council members, I was pretty excited.  When I found out that I’d also get a few minutes before the demo to interview him, I was even more excited.  I’ve been a fan of Chef Iuzzini’s work for quite a long time and I was interested to see what he would have to say.

This Macy’s flower show event post is sponsored by Everywhere.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Last weekend Bubbles and I had the opportunity to spend some time at our local Macy’s at the Oxmoor Center Mall.  We often visit the mall on the weekends, but this Saturday we were there for something special.  Macy’s was celebrating the arrival of spring and spring fashion with their Flower Show Event with a Secret Garden theme.

Bubbles loves pretty clothes as much, if not more, than any girl, so I knew she’d love seeing the fancy hats and beautiful looks for spring.  But aside from that, I also had heard that Macy’s was planning lots of fun little events for kiddos and adults alike. Continue reading »

I received Brilliant Sky Toys & Books products in order to facilitate my review.  No additional compensation was received and all words and opinions are my own.

Growing up we had basically two options when it came to shopping for toys: toy stores and catalogs.  I remember pouring through those catalogs every time they came in the mail, especially before the holidays.  And when we actually had the opportunity to visit a true toy store full of just toys and games, we never wanted to leave.

Now people do most of their shopping online.  I’m certainly one of them; it’s very convenient and sometimes it’s easier than braving traffic and weather to visit a store.  But as much as I love online shopping, it’s still a treat for me when I get to visit a cool brick and mortar store, especially when it’s full of toys.
