Outlander: My New Must-Watch Show

outlander

Do you ever read a book and then watch a movie or television adaptation of it and think that’s not how I pictured it? It happens to me all the time. But sometimes, I’m pleasantly surprised by what is portrayed on the screen. That’s the case for me with Outlander.

Crispy Zucchini with Chili Lime Yogurt Dip: Pompeian Pledge

fried zucchini

This recipe is part of a sponsored campaign. Love for zucchini and olive oil is all my own.  I’ve loved zucchini forever. I used to eat big platefuls of it fried up with butter, coated in a ton of Parmesan cheese when I was younger than my boys are now. I still love zucchini, but [...]

Honey Rolls and “Comfort Factor” $100 Gift Card Giveaway

Honey Rolls

It used to be that my period was just something inconvenient, but it didn’t really change much about my daily routine (other than being sure not to wear white pants- never had an issue, but thanks to books I read as a teen it’s still ingrained in me that it’s a no-no). But these days, [...]

Outlander: Why You Should Watch This New Show

outlander

I was like Sam and his green eggs and ham. No matter how many people gushed about their love for the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon, I turned up my nose and insisted I did not like it(Sam I am). Because I thought I’d read it back in college. A friend gave it to me, [...]

Cool Morning Treat #IcedDelight

I’m not a morning person. Not even a little bit. But in the summer, mornings are the easiest time for me to get work done because my kids sleep in. Once they’re up, they’re asking to go to the pool or the beach or to have friends over. So I need to take advantage of [...]

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Cutter® Insect Repellents. Go outside. It’s my summer mantra. Go run, bike, jump, swim, play, even just lay down and watch the clouds or read a book. Whatever it is you do, go outside.

Hunger Free Summer with ConAgra Foods

I worked with The Motherhood on this post, sponsored by ConAgra Foods. All thoughts and opinions are my own. While at the dinner table, telling my boys that some kids don’t have enough food to eat isn’t just some sort of guilt-tripping ploy to get them to eat their vegetables, it’s a very real fact. [...]

Beauty Tips to Solve ALLERGY FACE®

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of ZYRTEC®. That is not chalk. That is the pollen that was on just a small part of my front porch this Spring. I had to run inside before the urge to claw my eyes out overwhelmed me, leaving one of my boys in charge [...]

For the past few months, I’ve been chatting about my favorite shows using Beamly, the social network for tv: joining in TV Rooms to discuss live shows, following shows to [...]
