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.

I’m a little bit exhausted.  Okay, I’ll be honest – I’m a lot exhausted.  We just returned from a fun family weekend adventure where we were on-the-go the entire time and there are parts of my body that are tired, that I didn’t even know could get tired.

I participated in a campaign for Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Lay’s. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
