We are pretty green in my house. We conserve as much energy as we can, use cloth diapers, reduce waste, and I try to reduce the amount of chemicals that we use in our home and on our bodies. I feel that not only is it healthier, it is our social responsibility. Earth’s resources are finite and I feel very strongly that we need to start being more conscious of what we consume in order to leave a better planet for our children and grandchildren.
I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting Brancott Estate Wines. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
I have to admit that I am not a wine drinker straight out of the bottle but I do love Sangria and cooking with wine so we always have some on hand. Now that the weather is warming up it’s Sangria time!
I was excited to receive two bottles of Brancott Estate Flight Song wines to review. A Sauvignon Blanc and a Pinot Grigio. Brancott Estate Flight Song wines are 20% lighter in calories which makes them the perfect choice for my Skinny Sangria since I am currently on a weight loss regimen. Aren’t we always?
All my life I have had cats but during the time that I was renting I just didn’t feel that it was responsible to have a cat without knowing the pet rules of a potential landlord. When we bought this house a year ago my husband knew that one of my first orders of business would be to get a cat. He had never lived with a cat before but he knew how much it meant to me. After we were all moved in the kids and I went down to buy some grain free cat food and other supplies then headed to our local shelter to find a cat.
It took me a long time to try hummus. As a child my mother used to put chickpeas in things and I couldn’t stand them so when I found out that hummus was mostly chickpeas, there was no way.
I don’t remember the day that I finally decided to try it but was within the past five years or less. But when I did try it, it was like a party in my mouth. I lamented the fact that hummus and I had missed so many years together but I was going to make up for it now. I tried the store bought containers and it’s fine, I’ll eat it without complaint, but I finally tried making my own about a year ago and with something this simple there is no reason not to make it at home.

These days it seems like a lot of us are interested in either cutting down or cutting out the candy from our kids’ Easter baskets. I have celebrated almost fourteen Easters with my oldest son and in that time I have managed to put together fun baskets without a lot of candy. Don’t get me […][Continue reading...]
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of GoodNites®. The other day I posted a little about Red’s bedwetting issues that he had when he was younger. This was a stressful time for all of us.

As a participant in the Walmart to Go First program, I’ve received a personal invite and incentives for my time and efforts in creating this post.

Thanks to Direct Energy for sponsoring today’s discussion. Saving energy isn’t only good for your wallet, it’s good for the environment, too. Water, gas, and electricity may seem like they are in never-ending supply but this isn’t true. As a society we must be mindful of the resources we consume in order for our children, […][Continue reading...]
