Alexia Foods Prize Pack Giveaway Winner Chosen

I apologize for the delay in announcing the Alexia Foods Prize Pack giveaway winner. After my husband's diagnosis, I scheduled the giveaway to end when I thought we would return home from the hospital. Unfortunately his stay was longer than anticipated, so I am running behind on all things blog. A winner has now been chosen, and will receive the prize pack pictured. And the winner is... Leigh Anne B. Congratulations Leigh Anne!  You will receive email from me with further instructions! And a big thank you goes out to everyone who entered. I wish I could give prizes to … [Read more...]

Summer Grilling with Ziploc

There are many reasons I love Summer, but my favorite part? The food! There is hardly a weekend without the aromas of the grill sizzling away around here, and my freezer stays stocked full of grilling favorites in Ziploc freezer bags awaiting the kiss of the charcoal flames. No gas grill allowed for this gal! This Summer I discovered a new Ziploc brand product that fits so well with our grilling lifestyle. Ziploc offered me an assortment of Ziploc bags to try, and I want to share my new favorite with you. Have you heard about Ziploc brand All Purpose Marinade Bags? These things are … [Read more...]

You Don’t Think It Will Happen to You, Then it Does

I sat down to write this post so many times over the last few weeks, and each time I found myself struggling to move my thoughts from my head to the keyboard. The 6 saved drafts and countless deleted posts are a testament to where my mind has been. The last month has been a struggle for us as we were hit with unforeseen news that changed not just our Summer plans, but our family's life plan. My wonderful husband, Ben, walked into our doctor's office in the middle of June for a routine followup on a blood pressure medication change and pulled abdominal muscle. Neither of us could have ever … [Read more...]

Turning 3 with a Rock Star Party

*Oriental Trading supplied me with discounted or promotional products in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.* This month my little one turned 3. This was the first year Aubrey was really old enough to join in the birthday party plans, so I let her pick the theme. I wasn't the least bit surprised when she declared she would be having a "rocks 'n rolls" rock star party. At a young age she is already showing a huge love of music. Then again, she comes from a musical family. My father-in-law is a drummer, my husband plays the bass, and I play the violin. I'm not a fan of pre-made … [Read more...]

Alexia Gourmet Potatoes, Pinot, and Paint Giveaway

Wine and painting parties are super hot right now. I scroll through my Facebook feed and can almost guarantee I'll see at least one photo set from a friend or two who went out for a wine and painting night. As much as I love painting, most of the paint nights I have been interested in are either too expensive for my budget or I just don't like the painting scheduled for the nights that I have available. Who says we can't enjoy our own wine and painting from the comfort of home? All you need are painting supplies, a few bottles of wine, some snack food, and someone to enjoy the evening with, … [Read more...]
