More than for sandwiches? #finlandiacheese with 2 recipes

Image
When you work no where near your house, you tend to take your lunch to work to save money. At least that is what we do around here.  I have been trying to change up the sandwiches around here at lunch time, so I figured I would surprise Marc with a little Ham N' Swiss since we were sent some from Finlandia!!!  Talk about a nice surprise for him!!!  Yeah, he noticed the new lunch bag, but had no clue what was in store when he opened up lunch that day!

I was familiar with Finlandia Cheese, but I guess I never thought about them offering butter as well. We were sent a few products to try out and while we have not tried it all, I did want to offer you a recipe that we will be trying with the cheese soon!  (See, its not ju…

Eddie the Eagle Giveaway #Eddieinsiders

Image
If you remember, a while back, Broxton and I had a movie date night and went to see the movie, Eddie the Eagle.  We really enjoyed it and I loved that Broxton was able to see the story line about never giving up, no matter what.  I was thrilled when we were given the chance to have a movie night at home to celebrate the release of Eddie the Eagle to Blu-Ray/DVD.

Working with Fox Insiders, we made it a pretty awesome movie night too!   Even though it is summertime, it was nice to have treats and we watched in style with a little hot chocolate. (Had to keep warm on all those snowy slopes practicing skiing!)  
As much as we love movie nights, it is fun to be able to do something more than just popcorn and a movie...  This t…

Limited Time Paradise Pancakes at Ihop

Image
I don't know about you, but I can sure enough enjoy a nice big breakfast.  It is even better if someone cooks it for me, so I can enjoy it more and not have to worry about cleaning up the kitchen once it is over.  We love going to IHOP (I get it honest, my mom and brother went there weekly when he was younger.)  and I was lucky enough to get to go check out their Paradise Pancakes to share with you guys!!!

Broxton has decided to request IHOP every chance he gets, so when I was able to surprise him with a trip to IHOP not too long ago, he was excited to go get his "silver five!"  I,on the other hand, was ready to dive in to the paradise pancakes.  
I was torn between them, as they all sounded amazing, but after…

Make it a point to visit the Children's Museum of Atlanta, XOXO

Image
I know that I can not be the only one that does not take advantage of living in Atlanta when it comes to all that is around us.  A few years ago, Broxton was invited to a birthday party at the Children's Museum of Atlanta and he had a great time, we said we would go back... but never made it.  Recently, he has been seeing commercials for them and has mentioned he wanted to go check it out since it looked really cool.  We made plans to go this summer and then I was fortunate enough to get invited to go check out their latest exhibit, XOXO.  Of course I said yes and we made plans to attend.

When you first arrive at the Children's Museum of Atlanta, you might be a little surprised at all they have to offer.  You enter…

Put Me In The Story is giving away a trip to San Diego Zoo

It is hard to believe that Savannah is about to turn ONE!! As I look back on the past year, I am so excited with how much she has grown.  It never ceases to amaze me to watch the wonder of a child. Since she is turning one, I wanted to get her something to keep forever and a book from Put Me in the Story is just the right thing this time around!    FTC Compliant Review Policy:  The product(s) featured in this review were provided free of cost to me by the manufacturer or representing PR agency for the sole purpose of product testing.

I was given the chance to work with Put Me in the Story for a review of two titles they teamed up with National Geographic to produce.  I did both books to Savannah for her birthday gift and of course let one be just to her from her big brother, Broxton! 

Here are Savannah's new books.    Not only did I get to review these two books, I get to share with you a super fun contest …

Summer, perfect time for a picnic. Plus a recipe!

Image
I don't know about you, but for us, summer is for trying to take it easy.  Especially during the hot days!   Lucky for me, Broxton loves when he "gets to decide" that it is picnic day.  Even better?  The fact that he loves to have picnics inside just as much as an outdoor lunch! There is something about throwing down a blanket and eating picnic foods versus sitting at a table and eating a sandwich, at least that is the feeling here!!! We get to make quick and easy meals. Know what that means? More time for playing and making memories!   
Recently, we were sent a variety of treats to change up our typical picnic from just chips, fruit and sandwiches.  Read below to see what all we were able to try!   More time with these cuties?  YES!!! I am all for it!
