Meet Macy's Culinary Council Chef Dana Herbert at Aventura Mall February 24

This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of Macy’s; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. I am so excited to spend time at Macy's, Aventura, my favorite shopping mall.  When I got married, I moved North but I never miss an opportunity to go back to Aventura!  I have so many great memories there.  Aventura Mall is a fantastic mall to shop at. This time is going to be special because I'm going back to Aventura Mall as a married woman.  We all know what that means...I finally had to buckle down and learn to cook.  Of course, having a French husband does help when it comes to the kitchen, but my kids expect a decent dish from me at dinnertime. So, …

"And There We Were," My Valentine
February 13, 2018

This is a Sponsored Post for One2One Network. However;  all opinions are my own. Valentine's Day is tomorrow, and it has me thinking.  "And Then We Were" by the Whole Damn Mess is a love story about Don Miggs and his wife Lisa on their wedding day.  What I love about music is that it means so much to so many people on different levels.  It speaks to people's hearts and gives them permission to feel raw emotion and allows them to dream big.  "And Then We Were" reminds me of my relationship with my husband.  We were also brought together by fate or the internet.  You pick.  He was always there.  I wasn't paying attention.  And then we met. And Then We Were. On our wedding …

How to Make Non Candy Valentine's Conversation Starters with Recycled Crayons

This is a Sponsored Post and contains affiliate links, which means that if you click on a link and purchase something, I will receive commission. I'm not sure how long the Valentine's Conversation Starter candies have been out.  I've been receiving them since I was a little girl.  I never even liked the taste of them.  They always ended up going to waste. Every year the kids come home with candy for Valentine's Day and every year I take some and dump them.  Don't get me wrong, they get candy.  But we don't need more dentist visits so I'm particular about what they keep.  No chewy candy that can sit in their teeth.  This year I bought tiny heart lollipops for my little one's class. But for …

Save $500 on Laundry Solution when you Purchase a LG’s TwinWash System from Best Buy

Save $500 on Laundry Solution when you Purchase a LG’s TwinWash System from Best Buy

I have been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. Who doesn't want a dependable washing machine?  Doing laundry is not on my "favorite things to do at home" list.  I do two to three loads every other day.  It's exhausting doing laundry for with three males and myself.   Sometimes, I wish there was a simpler way to do laundry.  It would help to have the LG’s TwinWash system.  Especially when I'm rushing to get the kids' uniforms done, but I also have a load of white, bed sheets and my delicates too to do! There are times that I think I've done it all and I'm looking for that "one" special …

Roots  Italian Kitchen Boca Raton Opens for Lunch

This is a Sponsored Post for Roots Italian Kitchen.  However, all opinions are my own. I had never been to Roots Italian Kitchen in Boca Raton, so when I was invited I was very excited to check it out. Like a lot of people in town I had heard about it but I had no idea what to expect. Roots Italian Kitchen welcomes you in a modern, open space atmosphere that is reminiscent of a Top Chef challenge: white, contemporary, minimalistic. It looks nothing like your grandma's favorite Italian restaurant with pizza, pasta, and the cliche tablecloth. The flavors have nothing to do with grandma's favorite either. No blend pasta smothered in questionable tomato sauce. Roots' flavors are precise, bold. Dishes are expertly prepared and presented in a …

What to Pack for ShiftCon

What to Pack for ShiftCon

What is Shiftcon? Honestly, I had only heard of it last year when my good friend Erika from Essentially Erika told me about it.  She came back all jacked up with inspiration and news; she was downright gushing.  I was curious. "ShiftCon  is a social media conference/ Expo with over 50 brands that mirror our ideals. ShiftCon attendees value transparency, health and eco-friendly values. We not only expect that from the companies and brands we support, we applaud it, celebrate it and promote it." So, this year as I got a little greener and felt the need to educate myself more, I thought about it. Should I? I'm not a "crunchy mom." I like to say that I try to be aware of what I put in mine and my …

5 Common Mistakes Every Parent Makes with Their Children

5 Common Mistakes Every Parent Makes with Their Children

                                                                                                Painting by Dan Christopher. Being a parent does not come with an instruction manual. It is grueling, exhausting and sometimes thankless work, but the benefits far outweigh the difficulties. When raising children, there are a few tricks of the trade that experienced parents cling to with all their might. The blunders we make are gaffe's that we can all learn from and in an age where instant digital content allows the sharing of minds, what better time to take advantage of the guidance and assistance of parents who have already gone through it. Why not learn from our mistakes? The Key to Successful Parenting The key to learning as we trudge forward is that this too shall pass. Long-term victories are significant, and it is important to …

Preparing Your Kids to Graduate Debt Free

Preparing Your Kids to Graduate Debt Free

This is a Sponsored Post for Florida Prepaid. However; all opinions are my own. After the whirlwind of the holidays, over-consumption of gift-buying, cookie-eating, and overindulging in other holiday goodies, we said a nostalgic farewell to 2017, grateful for another year we shared with our families and friends, and eager to "do better" this year! Many of us also said goodbye to our account balances, as in, maybe we spent too much on the kiddos, the in-laws, the teachers, the coaches, and the neighbors. I always make a list and am usually pretty good at sticking to it, but something happened this year. I went way over budget and emerged remorseful once I looked at our savings account. And then I remembered-it’s a brand new year! A brand …
