Last week we had the unique opportunity to celebrate a special birthday – Pretend City just turned 5! In honor of this special occasion, they celebrated in style with a When I Grow Up Day.
If you haven’t been to Pretend City, plan to visit soon with your little one. It is a great place for them to let their imagination run wild in a miniature setting of the real world. Continue reading
With everyone going back to school, I’ve finally been getting in a little “me time”. The plan is to start exercising and eating healthier to drop a few pounds, aiming for my skinny clothes. The problem is – I love snacks! I was recently introduced to This Bar Saves Lives, which are delicious and supports an amazing cause!
I hadn’t realized that severe acute malnutrition leads to 2.6 million deaths per year. That’s where This Bar Saves Lives comes in. They’re the makers of 3 delicious, non-GMO snack bars packed with superfoods. Continue reading

I love the element of surprise, especially trying to surprise friends and family. Just a couple weeks ago I tried to surprise my husband with a reunion and celebration of his coaching successes with his softball team alumni. Unfortunately he wasn’t thrilled about the surprise element at all. He wanted to know the details of the evening – a “Surprise” wasn’t good enough. what we were doing etc. But at the end, he did enjoy himself and seeing all the girls, but when I put a Prize Candle in front of him, he was as impatient as a kid.
We received a Prize Candle to sample, and took it with us camping. I just love hanging out around the picnic table chatting or over a meal, while burning a candle and a fire. Continue reading
