Content and/or other value provided by our partner, Target. All opinions are my own.

Which Boar’s Head Sandwich Recipe will YOU choose in the #BHBoldestBracket?

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Boar’s Head Brand for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. Many years ago, my mother in law was diagnosed with Celiac disease.  Basically, she was diagnosed with a severe gluten allergy and was told that most sandwich meats were off limits forever.  Except a few of the Boar's Head sandwich meats...those were okay because many did not contain gluten. When she came to visit, I bought her Boar's Head sandwich meat and that was my first time ever trying them.  And I have been buying them … [Read more...]

UFC Gym Perimeter opens for Atlanta Fitness Lovers #UFCGymPerimeter

This post about Atlanta fitness and the UFC Gym Perimeter has been sponsored but all opinions expressed here are my own. Spring is quickly on its way in (if my allergies are any indication!) and soon after spring comes summer.  Why am I concerned about summer? Not only do I hate the heat and humidity of an Atlanta summer, but I also hate putting on a bathing suit.  However, when one shows up at the neighborhood pool in a burlap sack, people tend to look at you a little bit funny.  If you live in the Atlanta area and are just as concerned as … [Read more...]

Enjoying the Flavors of Fall

This post about the flavors of fall has been sponsored but all opinions expressed here are my own. Growing up in New England, fall was always my favorite time of year.  The colorful leaves falling off the trees, the crisp feeling to the air, and the warm and inviting smells and flavors that just screamed 'winter is coming!'.  Here in Georgia I don't get very many pretty leaves and we don't really hit 'crisp' weather until December but food and flavors I can do!  I thought I would share with you a few of my favorite flavors of fall and some … [Read more...]

Adding a Little Zip to Our Snacks with Heluva Good! Greek Style Yogurt Dip #HVGgoesGreek #MC

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Heluva Good! I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating. My children started back to school last week and for the first 2 days I told them they had to buy their lunch.  This helps them get adjusted to the new routine while everyone is still a bit new to the process.  The children were less than pleased when they came home from school.  I heard all about how horrid the school lunch was.  They only gave them 4 … [Read more...]

Bold Home Decor Styles and Sweepstakes from CB2 #CB2NovogratzBrasilSweepstakes

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of CB2 for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. Choosing the right home decor items has always been challenging for me.  When we moved into our home 7 years ago we had half the rooms completely empty and needed new furniture and accessories.  I think I   spent 2 months looking for the right living room furniture!  I wanted something that really called to me, not just your average everyday stuff you see in all the big name home decor stores. If you enjoy finding your own unique style … [Read more...]

Foodies!! Enter your Favorite recipes for a chance to win a trip to BlogHer Food ’13

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Pompeian for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. My husband recently watched a cooking show on TV that was discussing the benefits of the Mediterranean diet.  One of the most important aspects of this diet is the consumption of olive oil.  Even though the people in this area consume more oil than many Americans, they have fewer heart problems.  Olive oil is a much better choice for cooking healthy foods than butter or vegetable oils.  Another chef secret is grapeseed oil.  Grapeseed … [Read more...]

Unique Gifts and Easy Shopping from Novica and a $40 GC #Giveaway!

My time is very limited this month, as I'm sure most of you understand!  With so little spare time on my hands in the next few weeks I am planning on doing a bit of my shopping online.  While it is always nice to browse the stores to find unique gifts for everyone on your list, that takes a lot of TIME.  Just because Great Aunt Matilda wants a hand blown glass vase for Christmas doesn't mean I am going to find it in any of the 15 stores I stop into next weekend.  Well, with Novica's new online gift finder, unique gifts are much easier to find!  … [Read more...]

A Diary’s House Exerpt and Kindle Fire Giveaway!

A Sweet Divide Suddenly the barn door bolted open and out it spat a whole slew of people; workers and families who were near to retire for the evening. I knew the hour was waning deeper into the night and many would be leaving soon. Annabelle spun to observe them and she returned; her expression so matching mine that our time together was soon to end. Annabelle and I talked further; of the things we loved and endeared ourselves to; the joys to our lives and what we wanted most from them. We shared a laugh or two, and some thoughtful stares … [Read more...]
