Give the Gift of Gift Cards and Save With ChoiceCards.com

This post is sponsored by Tatu Digital Media. However all opinions are my own. Every year, it seems like the bliss of summer is blotted out all too quickly from the chaos of getting the kids back to school in September, only to be quickly followed by Halloween. This year, on Halloween, my two little ones had so much fun dressing up and getting loads of candy, except I knew in the pit of stomach this meant less than two months until Christmas! Is it me, or is the holiday season sneaking up on us faster and faster? Of course over the summer I had grand ideas of starting my holiday shopping early, telling myself I wouldn’t wait until the last minute like last year. …

4 Tips For Parents to Slow Down for the Holidays

4 Tips For Parents to Slow Down for the Holidays

  This post was sponsored by GOJO, the makers of PURELL® Multi Surface Disinfectant, as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.   It's always the same around this time of year.  The grocery stores are packed and you can feel that the Holidays have set in.  Everyone is rushing.  Rushing to buy, buy, buy and putting toys and food back in the wrong place. We are trying to get our houses organized. People are rushing on the road.  Moms are rushing their kids to school.  It's go, go, go.  Even my coffee intake has doubled.  Why can't we slow down? I've dug deep and made a few adjustments to our lives this week and for the future! 1.Disinfect Disinfect before anything.  Disinfect before …

Stocking Stuffers for the Thirsty Kid

  This is a Sponsored Post.  However; all opinions are my own.  There also may be affiliate links in this post which means if you click on them and purchase something, I will receive commission. One of the things I like about the Holidays is finding new non toy items that can actually benefit my kids and make them happy at the same time.  Christmas doesn't have to be all about toys, games, candy, ect. We are in love with eco friendly Planet Box lunch boxes. And now we have a partner for it.  Planet Box has us covered with their Bottle Rocket Capsule Stainless Steel Water Bottle.  I’m not big on toys for the Holidays and this is so useful - we are always on the …

Hurricane BTW Opens in West Palm Beach

Hurricane BTW Opens in West Palm Beach

This is a Sponsored Post.  However; all opinions are my own, Last Saturday, December 9th I attended the grand opening party for Hurricane BTW (Burgers-Tacos-Wings) in their new location, West Palm Beach for the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony. The kids had a blast getting tattoos and playing Foosball while we listened to the  Steeltown Religion band and ate some wings! My husband tried the wings with the Boss sauce. I had the Honey Pecan Chicken Salad. It has mixed greens topped with chicken tenders, honey roasted pecan, bleu cheese, diced tomatoes and dried cranberries.  It was delish! The kids had wings too! They also have a kids menu with boneless wings. They also loved the Foosball table in the back. The wing eating contest between West Palm Beach Police and WPB Fire …

Give the Gift of Education This Year

This is a Sponsored Post for Florida Prepaid. However;  all opinions are my own. How many times does someone say to us, "I really don't know what to get so-and-so for Christmas - they have everything?" Well, maybe they think they have everything.  We don't have everything.  These days things are uncertain and just peace of mind can be everything. I see grandparents shopping for toys for the little ones and parents going online to make that quick purchase for a family member just to get it done.  The Holidays can get stressful for everyone.  But do we really put that much thought into purchasing our gifts?  The stress of going out and finding gifts can put a toll on us during the Holiday season. Applying for …

Celebrate the Holidays with Cheeseless Crab Nachos

Celebrate the Holidays with Cheeseless Crab Nachos

All opinions are mine alone. This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser, Louis Kemp. #CrabDelightfulHoliday #CollectiveBias Last year our family traveled to Arizona to spend the Holidays with my parents.  The kids love it and they usually get to see snow in the mountains.  Here in Florida, there's no chance of seeing snow.  They are a little bit sad about not returning this year but as we are moving there next year we thought we would stay for our last year in Florida.  So, as we are staying in town for the Holidays, it still means parties and festivities galore!  Will there be pines trees and snow outside? No! But we can bring the celebration to other people's homes. I love celebrating …

How to Make 4 Ingredient Scottish Shortbread

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #TeaProudly #CollectiveBias I grew up with a British mother.  So, when we are together we drink a lot of tea.  And we use china tea cups.  No mugs.  My mom uses tea cozies and I've had my share of them also.  We always have a "biscuit" or a cookie, or shortbread to dunk in the tea.  It's just the way things are.  There are no exceptions.  This has been my life.  Tea with mom equals a tea party.  Hover over the image below to start shopping for your tea party! Since I live in Florida, I drink it more when she comes to visit.  So, I dust off the electric …

Henry's Seasonal Fall/Winter Menu Launches

This is a Sponsored Post.  However, all opinions are my own. I had the opportunity make another visit to Henry’s in Delray Beach a few days back and I had a blast. This time I had my husband with me and I was looking forward to sharing the experience with him.   We started with cocktails, well I don’t drink so, he started with cocktails… he tried the Spicy Peach Margarita and the Blood Orange Cosmo. He liked both, but his favorite was the Spicy Peach Margarita. It is a very unique cocktail, not what you would expect from a family restaurant in an upscale neighborhood. It was a great start to a great meal! For the fall/winter menu Chef Dan Moore created 18 new menu items which complement …

My Son Drew a Picture of our Family and Left His Brother Out

My Son Drew a Picture of our Family and Left His Brother Out

My son loves to draw.  He's so creative and is always drawing me pictures.  It's so refreshing to have children that love to color and create.  So, of course I encourage it.  Many times, they color and paint separately.  Which I also encourage. We all need our space. They spend a lot of time together and when they are apart they are always asking for each other.  They are soulmates.  They are bros.  They truly love each other. So, when my son told me he was going to draw me a beautiful picture of our family with a rainbow, as usual, I was excited to see what he would come up with.  I was just like him when I was younger and loved to draw and paint.  …

How Junior's Made Me Fall in Love with Cheesecake

How Junior's Made Me Fall in Love with Cheesecake

This is a Sponsored Post for Juniors.  However, all opinions are my own. Juniors just celebrated 67 years in business. Founded by Harry Rosen in 1950, Junior's landmark restaurant, located in Brooklyn, is known as the home of New York's best cheesecake. It was a pleasure meeting Kevin Rosen, the third generation owner running the business with his brother. As soon as we sat down, we were served pickles, which is nice because it keeps your mouth and your hands busy while not filling you up. I started with the Pastrami smoked salmon, which is exclusive to the Boca Raton menu. At first, I thought it was a combination of Pastrami and smoked salmon (that would have been weird), but it is smoked salmon with Pastrami spices (no meat). Kevin Rosen, the owner, highly recommended it and I'm so glad …
