Brooklyn Bean Roastery Midnight Hot Chocolate | #BBR

The cold weather is here and to me that means one thing – hot chocolate and cuddling with my young daughters. I am someone who relies on coffee to get through my day, but when it comes to the fall and winter, I need at least one steaming cup of hot cocoa too. And it helps that my 3 and 5 year old agree with me. Nearly every night we gather on the front porch or the back patio, sit under a blanket on a bench, and talk about our days over hot chocolate. This is a tradition that I hope continues as they get older (although I am expecting that it will dwindle during the teenage years).

Get Picky with Orgain Protein Powder + a Fun Prize Pack! | #PowerTothePicky #GetPickyWithYourProtein #Giveaway

Power to the picky! When we were young, we wore our pickiness like a badge – eat a sandwich with crust still on? Forget it! – but as adults, we sometimes lower our standards in the name of nutrition. Take protein powder – people often choke down gritty, bad tasting protein powder in their smoothies just because it’s “good for you.” Unlike other protein powders that can contain questionable ingredients and be gritty, chalky and, frankly, hard to choke down because they just don’t taste good, Orgain protein powders are not only packed with the most nutritious, highest quality organic ingredients but are also delicious.

Bootler: The Kayak for Food Delivery | #GoBootler #Food

Bootler is an online aggregation service for delivery food, or a search engine for delivery food. If you’d like, watch this 30 second YouTube Video to see how it works. But basically, they work with over 6 different delivery services allowing users to pick a restaurant and compare prices, availability and delivery time saving their users time and money. They are not the delivery company. They only bring together other delivery companies and then redirect you to their website. Basically, Kayak.com for flights… you book the flight through Kayak, but you fly with American Airlines.

Celebrate Fall with the Flavor of Java Factory Roasters’ Trick and Treat Coffee | #Coffee

One of my favorite things about fall is the leaves changing color and the cool breeze coming in. However, all that being said, I don’t like to be cold. So there is nothing better than a hot cup of coffee and blanket while I watch the fall scenery from my front porch. Let’s face it, there are some flavors that are better than ever when it comes to the fall season. One of those is, of course, Pumpkin! And what goes better with pumpkin than marshmallow? I say nothing! Well, we are all in luck because Java Factory Roasters has an amazing pumpkin coffee that you need this fall season – and it is called Trick and Treat.

Brooklyn Bean Boardwalk Blend Coffee is the Perfect Medium Roast | #BBR #Coffee

I am a huge fan of coffee. Being a mom of two little girls that are pretty strong willed means that I value my coffee. I love all blends and roasts – from light to bold – from flavored to natural – and Brooklyn Bean Roastery has it all. One of my favorite roasts is boardwalk blend. It is the perfect blend for those early school mornings – and I highly recommend it. The Boardwalk combines the best of both worlds: a peaceful view of the sea in front of you, and the shimmering lights of the city behind you. Boardwalk Blend is a smooth, medium roast, but it’s still packed with extra bold flavor. Whether you’re in the mood for a quiet stroll or a sightseeing adventure, Boardwalk Blend will rise to the occasion.

You Will Love Cinnamon Subway Coffee from Brooklyn Bean Roastery | #BBR #Coffee

I am quite the coffee drinker. I stay home with two little girls and well, I can’t seem to get through my day without at least 3 or 4 cups. My oldest started Kindergarten this year meaning that she is in school all day long, leaving me alone with the little one. And thanks to back to school time, I am needing even more coffee to get through my day. One of my favorite coffee companies is Brooklyn Bean Roastery because they have a wide variety of delicious coffees. I have been known to put a spoon full of cinnamon in my cups of coffee before and because of this, I love Cinnamon Subway!

Busy Moms Choose Nature’s Harvest® Bread and Entenmann’s® Little Bites™ Snacks | #BackToSchool

Let’s face it, moms are busy. Especially when back to school time hits. My 5 year old will be starting Kindergarten in just a couple of weeks and I know that my nights and mornings are going to be filled with making sure homework is done, packing up her backpack, finding the perfect show and tell items, and packing lunches. On top of all of this, I still need to find time to spend with my 3 year old, my husband, the dog, and still get work done around the house (not to mention keeping up with my website)! Thank God for Nature’s Harvest® Bread and Entenmann’s® Little Bites™ Snacks because I know that no matter what, her lunch will be fun, healthy, and easy to make with them.

How to Have a Game Morning with General Mills Cereal & Skylanders Battlecast | #Skylanders #BigGBattlecast

As most of you know, I am a huge gamer. Ever since I was a little girl and I got my first gaming console, I have been hooked! I don’t discriminate – from board games, to consoles, to mobile – I love all forms of gaming! One of my favorite games to play is Skylanders, so of course when they launched Skylanders® Battlecast in May, I downloaded it right away. Skylanders Battlecast is the latest mobile game in the Skylanders franchise – and it is so much fun! I personally enjoy the single player campaign, but there is an online multiplayer option as well. In this mobile trading card game, you collect both digital and physical Skylanders Battlecast cards to build the ultimate team and bring them to life in epic online battles! Simply scan physical character cards with a mobile device camera to add them to your in-game deck.
