Olives are one of my favorite foods! Maybe it’s because of my Greek ancestory, or maybe it’s because olives are just plain awesome. They’re naturally sugar-free and have lots of good monounsaturated fats. They’re delicious in salads, soups, spreads, or just by themselves. I love the variety of colors, flavors and how healthy they are. […]
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of AllWhites Egg Whites for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. Up until about six months ago, I’d never purchased egg whites. I’d cooked the occasional recipe that called for them, but I would just separate them myself and inevitably waste the egg yolk. Then […]
I’ve always been a big fan of DOVE® chocolate. Other chocolate brands just don’t compare to the smooth, creamy taste of DOVE®. I think I’ve probably tried all the different varieties of tasty chocolate products that DOVE® offers, and I love them all. When I heard that DOVE® had some new products out, Whole Fruit […]
I have my high school friend and then my husband to thank for introducing me to country music and for turning me into a fan! There’s just something genuine and approachable about country music, especially older country music. My husband loves “classic” country, and of course that means he has a lot of Garth Brooks’ music. I was excited to tell him (and you all) about Garth’s brand new single, “Mom.”
“Mom” is a very moving song about a conversation God has a with a little baby who’s headed to Earth to meet his/her mother. The lyrics of the song describe what a mother is, and it’s incredibly touching. I challenge you to listen to it and not cry.
THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. CONGRATULATIONS TO THE WINNER: SHIRLEY EMITT! I’m always on the look out for fun ways to help keep my little preschooler entertained and active while his sisters are away at school. I can only play so many board games, games of tag and coloring pages before I have to get some […]
My cute sister-in-law recently moved to Utah, and she’s not a big fan of the cold. I think she’d live in tank tops and flip flops if she could. So, I found the perfect gift idea at Groupon that will give her an excuse to put on her bathing suit and escape the cold … a 40-minute swim in a geothermal pool naturally heated to over 90 degrees! The Groupon is for two and includes snorkel gear, so she can bring a friend or cute boy with her and have a really memorable experience!
I’m pretty sure everyone has a few names on their Christmas list that are challenge every year. I know I do! I have five younger brothers, five sister-in-laws and one little sister who are spread out all over. We have a tradition of exchanging names every year for Christmas gifts; and while I love my brothers, I’m always a little freaked out when I get ones of their names. Their interests are foreign to me, and they’re a bit particular about brands, etc. This year, however, Groupon came to the rescue!
One of my favorite holiday traditions is our annual cookie exchange with my church friends that’s been going on for several years. I love it so much because we all get to socialize and enjoy an evening out, but I also go home with boxes (literally) of homemade cookies for my family to enjoy. Not […]
I always try and keep cough medicine on hand for the inevitable colds that pop up with my kids. My sample of Dr. Cocoa liquid cough and cold medicine for kids arrived just as my daughter started a nasty cough and I ran out of my old cough medicine. Perfect timing! Dr. Cocoa is the […]
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Groupon Gift Shop. All opinions are 100% mine. After nearly eleven years of marriage, I’m running out of gift ideas for my husband. He really doesn’t need any more “stuff,” but I still love to surprise him with the perfect gift. So to celebrate […]
Christmas came early to our house this year! You can probably tell by the looks on my girls’ faces that they were just a little bit excited about the chance to review two of the newest BARBIE® toys: BARBIE® Doll and Tawny Horse and BARBIE® Sparkle Studio Doll. After opening up the packages, I let […]
This post brought to you by Vaseline. The content and opinions expressed below are that of ‘Or so she says …’ My Vaseline “Healing Kit” arrived just in time! The temperatures have dropped here and my skin is starting to feel dry and itchy. I almost never use lotion, but that changes every winter. My […]
