@WorkmanPub has all of your #calendar needs to get the year started right! #Review

Image
 As we all know, 2020 threw many things our way.  It was for sure a year to remember!!  I was so excited to get a calendar to document all the good that is bound to come our way.  I started looking for the perfect one, but nothing was grabbing my attention like I knew I wanted.  Then, I was introduced to Workman Publishing and the rest is history!   A good friend of mine is slightly obsessed with True Crime. She watches them all the time and listens to podcasts on her lunch break.  When I saw that Workman Publishing had " A Year of True Crime" page a day calendar, I knew that I wanted to get it just for her.   She was so excited and she and another co-worker looked through almost a whole month in the beginning, as they could not stop turning the pages!    Something that I love?   The fact that the the back of the page has a grid on it, so you can use it for scratch paper the next day.  I think she has enjoyed it and I love the way it works out perfectly to give you a day at a

@SlammersSnacks will help strengthen your Immune System #Review

With the new year here, it is time to take control and find more time to make memories, as we all know, time flies.  I have shared our love of Slammers before, but I wanted to tell you about them again, as they are still as good as they once were.  I don't know about you, but if I can find a way to take care of the kids, giving them healthier options for snacks than just a bag of chips or candy... Then I am all for it.  Especially if it is going to STRENGTHEN their immune system.  More time enjoying life and less time stressing choices - that is a win for me!   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 know that I am not the first and I won't be the last to say that this year has thrown many a curve ball our direction.  I have had highs and lows... but one thing I am really working on is TAKING TIME FOR ME! Maybe that isn't a huge deal to some, but to me, it is something I tend to push to the back as I want to make sure my kiddos have everything they want or need... but that isn't always fair.  I have started to do a few "little" things that are just for me, because I feel that when I am the best of me, I can give and be the best for them! Just what am I doing?  Watching TV shows for ME :)  Reading books for ME ---  and PAMPERING myself now and then!  I have seen these cute masks before, but never bought them.. but you can guarantee I will in the future!  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.

It's a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood... #MisterRogersNeighborhood #hosted #Review

Image
Update - For some reason, I was feeling a bit nostalgic and wanted to watch Mister Rogers' Neighborhood this weekend.  Maybe its the fact of simpler times (in a time when we need his words of wisdom more than ever.)  All I know is that I put it on and Savannah immediately said she did not want to watch it.  I went on about my plans and about half a minute into the show, she was once again glued to the screen.  It hit my heartstrings and I even had to post a small clip on my Instagram.  We ended up watching several episodes this morning and I am pretty sure that was just what I needed today!    When I was a child, my parents both worked and I went to daycare.  I can clearly remember us sitting to watch TV each afternoon while we waited for our parents to pick us up.  We would watch tv and they would call us one by one to wash our hands and face and fix our hair after a long day of learning and playing.. but what I also remember was watching Mister Rogers' Neighborhood.  It was f

Have you ever heard of alfajores? It was new to me when I received an email introducing them to me...     but I am glad I gave it a try!  We were sent several to try... along with Dulce De Leche.  YUM!!!!! Alfajores:  (From Wikipedia)  An alfajor or alajú is a traditional confection found in Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Paraguay, Colombia, Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, Andorra, Spain, Venezuela, Southern France, Southern Brazil and the Philippines. The archetypal alfajor entered Iberia during the period of al-Andalus. It is produced in the form of a small cylinder and is sold either individually or in boxes containing several pieces. Dulce De Leche : (from Wikipedia)  Dulce de leche is a confection from Latin America prepared by slowly heating sweetened milk to create a substance that derives its flavor from the Maillard reaction, also changing color.
