10 Reasons To Go Green with a Natures Novel Mattress from Sweet Zzz

Have you ever heard that you spend half your life in bed? Well, it is true and that is why it is important to invest in the right mattress.

Incredibles 2: Powering the Hero Within with Delicious #Incredibles2 Recipes From Dole! | #DoleHero #DoleFamily

As you probably know by now, I have two young daughters. About a year ago, my husband and I decided it was time to get healthy. We wanted to be around for our daughters long into their lives. We cut out a lot of sweets and bad for you foods, and focused on healthy eating in our home. Because of this, we often purchase DOLE® fruits – which my girls love. They especially enjoy often seeing their favorite characters featured on the packaging (and yes, they keep those stickers as long as they can). This summer, DOLE® is teaming up with Pixar for an INCREDIBLE summer – “Powering The Hero Within” featuring Incredibles 2, a movie we can’t wait to see!

Easily Create A Custom Canvas Print with Canvas Champ | #Giveaway

Something that makes a house more like a home for me is wall decor. If you walk through my house, you will see that. I have family photos and canvas prints throughout my home, and also some pretty amazing geek decor in my office. When I was offered a custom Canvas Champ canvas print to write about, I just knew I was going to have it made of the Avengers: Infinity War poster. Not only am I a huge Marvel fan – the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) means a lot to me. I have been invested in this universe for nearly my entire life between the comics and the movies.

DIY Archery Target To Help You Shoot Arrows Like Hawkeye! | #InfinityWar #Archery #DIY

We may not be seeing much of Hawkeye lately, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t a major part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). In fact, not seeing him in the Avengers: Infinity War trailers and posters could mean he is more important than we could even imagine. I have my own theories for him, and in less than two weeks we will know for sure. Sometimes I channel Hawkeye because I love archery. Where I live, there are not many places to shoot around, so I created my own target out of a few things I found in the basement. It was really easy, and did not take long at all.

DIY: Four Easy Steps To Create Your Own Coffee Bar! | #Coffee #DIY

Just the other day my husband and I purchased a new coffee pot. Ours was getting old and we had read about one that featured a burr grinder so we decided to upgrade. When we got it home, it was just a tad too tall for our counter. At first, we were totally bummed, but then, we thought a coffee bar might work well in our kitchen. We started pricing them out and – long story short – we ended up building one. In about 24 hours. And it came out amazing. Surprisingly, it was a lot easier than we expected it to be. Here is how you can create your very own coffee bar – in just 4 easy steps!
