Check off your Summer Bucket List with #OREOSummerSweepstakes

This post was written by me through an activation with HireInfluence on behalf of OREO cookies.

This weekend we crossed off one item on our bucket list - a family date night for frozen yogurt! As an added bonus, we snapped an instagram picture so we could enter the #OREOSummerSweepstakes!   It Read more [...]

Five Ways to Raise a Sustainable Family + #GetMessyGetClean Festival

Getting my family outside playing together and enjoying the sunshine is a top priority this summer. Our day at the Get Messy Get Clean Festival at Thanksgiving Point fit the bill perfectly. Whether my children were creating and popping massive bubbles (you've got to see the video HERE) or planting an herb garden in pots they decorated themselves, they loved every minute and begged to stay longer. I had Annie's cheddar bunnies and Justin's almond butter packets to snack on, so I was happy Read more [...]

A Day in the Life of a Food Blogger

Have you ever wondered what a typical day looks like for a blogger? I am a blogger myself and even I wonder how my favorite bloggers make it work. How do stay at home bloggers maintain the illusive family/work balance? Are there tools, apps, or planners that keep their blogs running smoothly while they are running car pool and dinner? What does blogging look like when you have another full-time job? Is a day different for male bloggers vs. female bloggers? How does the day in a life of a Read more [...]

What to see in Gettysburg if you only have a day!

            I just got back from a week-long visit to my sister, the lovely Cambria from Live to be Inspired. She moved across the country to Pennsylvania and just had her first beautiful baby girl! I was spoiled with dozens of newborn snuggles - in between making meals and doing tiny, adorable laundry, of course. On the last day of our visit my sister decided that she was up for a road trip. We made the drive to Gettysburg and had just enough Read more [...]
